BREAKING: House Democrats Shut GOP Entirely Out of Process
The House Democrats tonight have denied Republicans the opportunity to offer any amendments at all on spending bills. Any.

Brad Sherman (D-CA) Takes On Obama Over Iran Funding
The Blue Dog Democrats have genuinely boxed themselves in lately on their consistency regarding Iran. On September 25, 2007, all the Blue Dog Democrats who were then in Congress voted in favor of H.R. 1400, the Iran Counter-Proliferation Act of 2007. The legislation would have prevented Iran from joining the World Trade Organization, imposed economic sanctions on the nation including banning the import of all | Read More »
Is it Chicagoland Politics or Creatures From the Third World Lagoon?
One must wonder these days if the Democrats are wrapping themselves around Chicagoland rough and tumble politics, or are they wrapping themselves around the politics of hyper-inflation experiencing third world thugocracies. In Chicagoland politics, like third world thugocracies, opponents of government get gunned down, thrown in jail, threatened by the powers of government, etc. We saw this happen a few months ago when a bank | Read More »

Washington Becomes Rome
Chuck Schumer wants the White House’s Office of Management and Budget to tell states they have no choice in the use of porkulus funds. Below the fold is the entire letter.

Dems Begin Lowering Expectations on 2010
It was bound to happen. “I’m not predicting any third waves here,” the Maryland Democrat said in remarks at a forum sponsored by Georgetown University and Politico. “If you look at first midterm elections historically, the president’s party loses seats,” he said. “The historical trend is pretty clear for Democrats.” Rather than trying to expand the Democratic House majority in 2010, Van Hollen believes his job | Read More »

Katon Dawson Exposing the Democrat Agenda
I’m off the NYC for work. Never been up there in the winter time. Before I leave, I wanted to make sure you all saw this great video from Katon Dawson, the South Carolina GOP Chair running for RNC Chairman:
Mark Ritchie, He’s Our Man. If He Can’t Steal It, No One Can!
Mark Ritchie is the Secretary of State of Minnesota. He is, by law, to fairly carry out the laws of the state and fairly enforce the rules relating to elections in the state. Instead, he has operated as a partisan hack. At a time when surveys are showing Minnesotans increasingly think the recount has been unfair to Coleman and Franken is growing increasingly unpopular, Ritchie, | Read More »

These are the 12 “foreign,” or so-called transplant, producers making cars across America’s South and Midwest. | Read More »

My Response to Ben Smith’s Response To Me
You can see his response here. He claims my headline is misleading because I identify “Democrats” as releasing the information. if he knows that Democrats released it, he has better sources than I do.
