    First take: Trey Gowdy will be the 2016 GOP VP nominee

    One of the joys of making early-on, (and some might say outlandish) projections; is that if you are correct, you’re a genius – if you’re wrong, no one remembers what you said a long time ago. With that, let’s look into the future.  John Boehner, bless his heart, has FINALLY done something right, announcing that he will appoint a Select House Committee. Even better, though | Read More »

    What did we learn from today’s House hearing? That John Mica CANNOT be the next chair of the Oversight Committee

    Any conservative who watched this morning’s House Oversight Committee hearing on Benghazi should absolutely cringe at the thought that John Mica will succeed to the chair in the next Congress. Note: If a video clip becomes available..hopefully someone will post it. Words like inept, pathetic, feeble utterly fail to describe Mica’s performance today.  Indeed, if one not familiar with American politics had just tuned in, | Read More »

    It is time for conservatives to form the ABC (Anti-Boehner Caucus)

    Erick’s latest post “To Change America” and its frightening opening line, “Stories continue to trickle out about coming Republican betrayals…”  continues to raise the alarm, and offers a solution: “The only way to change the direction of the country, is to change the direction of the GOP. The only way to change the direction of the GOP is to unleash hell in the Republican primaries.” | Read More »

    Is America ready to elect Golda Meir, er……..Hillary Clinton, as President?

    First, let’s be perfectly clear. Hillary Clinton is no Golda Meir. Clinton has the blood  of four dead Americans at Benghazi on her hands; Meir ordered the Mossad to hunt down and kill the terrorists responsible for the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. But this diary is about the media circus that is our national elections today. Our politicians Tweet, they | Read More »

    Jim Moran retires from Congress; joins the Tea Party

    Jim Moran, (D-Va) announced his retirement from Congress last week, and to just about everyone’s utter astonishment, promptly came out in support of the Tea Party. Moran stated that members of congress deserved a raise; that it was impossible for them to live on $174,000/year, with the demands of the job ( i.e maintaining a second residence), unless they had other sources of income. Moran, | Read More »

    House leadership needs to tell McAllister to resign, IMMEDIATELY!!

    Seems that s0-called  conservative, Christian, family values spouting LA congressman Vance McAllister has been caught on camera kissing a female who is NOT his wife. The father of 5 children, who’s been married for 17 years, has admitted that “he’s fallen short, and asked for forgiveness.” Some are equating this with the David Vitter and Mark Sandford scandals. Nothing could be further from the truth. | Read More »

    Mike Morrell channels Josh Steiner; takes another one for Team Clinton

    If you saw Mike Morrell’s testimony today before the House Intelligence Committee, you probably wanted to scream, or throw a brick at the TV, or have several adult beverages. It was a spectacular example of weaseliness. In Morrell’s world, and world-view, no one ever does anything wrong; it’s never anyone’s fault. “Stuff” well, just happens. It takes a certain chutzpah for the former acting head | Read More »

    Why not change the rules to keep the RNC, RSCC, and RCCC from playing in the primaries?

    Every two years, we get several stories about how the  national GOP campaign committees are meddling in primaries, either to support an incumbent, or to promote a favored candidate for an open seat. You’d think that after the debacle in Florida in 2o10, when they went all-in for Charlie Crist, they’ve have learned their lesson; but NOOOOOO, not the case. This year, the issue is | Read More »

    Is Obama trying to, well..”insure” that Democrats LOSE the Senate

    It just doesn’t add up. Consider: 1.We’re now being told that “more than 6 million have “enrolled” in Obamacare. 2. We are NOT being told how many have actually PAID a premium, which is the only way one can in fact secure coverage. 3. Some have suggested that as many as 25% ( likely even higher in the all-important coveted “young and healthy” demographic) won’t | Read More »

    “McConnelling ” goes mainstream, hits the big time

    Something light and frivolous for the weekend…. Red Staters, always on the cusp of what’s trending, are already familiar with the  phenomenon know as “McConnelling”, thanks to the earlier efforts of Ben Howe http://www.redstate.com/2014/03/14/mitch-trouble-mcconnelling/ and Aaron Garnder, http://www.redstate.com/2014/03/12/open-thread-mitch-mcconnell-hardcore/ but now it’s broken through, gone mainstream, as seen in this really funny piece on Yahoo, replete with several video clips, AND a handy-dandy, fool-proof “how-to” guide and | Read More »
