Who’s Enthusiastic about a GOP Senate Majority in 2016?
Republicans in the Senate faced a brutal task in retaining the Senate majority in 2016 before the Democrats went to work recruiting candidates. Republicans will be defending seats in a bevy of blue and purple states, including Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida. The Democrats, on the other hand, are only defending two purple seats, both of which are in states that are trending blue: | Read More »
The Obama Administration Goes Big On Extraordinary Rendition
You may remember the great hue and cry during the Bush Administration – mostly from people who now support President Obama – over the terrible, horrible, no-good practice of “extraordinary rendition.” In a nutshell, this involved handing over suspected terrorists (and people with information useful to catching terrorists) to foreign governments that lack our scruples about torture and other forms of coercion in extracting information | Read More »
Donald Trump Wants the Government to Take Your Stuff
Well, here goes Fox News treating Donald Trump unfairly(?). This is your GOP frontrunner. He is okay with your government seizing your property for “job development.” You get what that means? He wants to extend government’s power into your very home and allow them to take your stuff. Why does Trump believe this is so good? Because’s he’s been in the property business, of | Read More »
Senator Elizabeth Warren Reestablishes The Old Massachusetts Custom of Witch-Hunting
When Joe Biden decided he wanted to run for President in 2016, he wanted a running mate who was at least as inventive as he was. By inventive, I of course mean, derivative, phony and disingenuous. You don’t get more disingenuous than Elizabeth “Senator Lieawatha” Warren. Thus, it should shock nobody that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) 16% is on the short bus, | Read More »
Ted Cruz finds a question that the Sierra Club DARED not answer.
The moral of this particular story is: don’t send somebody up against a Senate Judiciary subcommittee unless you’re prepared to answer the simplest of questions.

Renee Ellmers Has No Business Investigating Planned Parenthood
By all accounts, the House committee hearings on Planned Parenthood last week were an abject failure. The Members who were part of the investigatory panel were ill prepared, completely ceded the ground on the video, and wandered aimlessly through the hearings without scoring a single substantive point. Particularly embarrassing was the performance of Members like Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) 81%, who used | Read More »
The Russian infringement of Turkish airspace is bigger than it seems
One of the many dangers of the grotesque lack of leadership shown by the Obama administration is that it gets a lot of people killed and raises the risk of a multi-national armed conflict breaking out for not particular policy end. This is not a case of Napoleon’s dictum about it being necessary to break eggs to make an omelet. Rather this what the Obama | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s First TV Ad is Horrible and Defensive
Hillary Clinton has released her first national TV ad, and the ad’s concept is horrible. Luckily for Clinton, the execution is also very bad. Imagine for a second that you are on Team Clinton. Your candidate came into this election season as the prohibitive favorite to take the White House. The struggle you have right now is that people don’t really like her. When asked | Read More »
“Banned books” are a lie told by leftists to feel good about themselves
A banned book is a serious matter. There have been books banned in US history. For example, a number of cities banned Elmer Gantry. Further, the federal government at times banned materials in the District of Columbia under the Federal Anti-Obscenity Act, which was better known for banning the use of the US Postal Service to send obscene materials. Those bannings, while rare, did happen. | Read More »
The Democratic Desultory Debate Disaster reminds us that Elections Have Consequences.
The current Democratic debate structure tells you a lot about how bad things are for Democrats on the state and Congressional level right now.

John Kasich Offers to Buy Bibles for Obamacare Critics
John Kasich has done it again. The Republican for Republicans who are ashamed of being Republican has reinforced his belief that if you oppose taxpayer confiscation of money for pointless government programs, you are a bad Christian. Kasich today even went so far as to suggest that he would buy Bibles for his critics, as though they are the ones who are ignorant of Biblical teaching: | Read More »
We Fill Our Culture with Garbage, and We Reap The Result
I’m going to start today by venting, and I will warn you in advance that this is going to be a sermon, but someone needs to speak the truth for a change: Another week, another mass shooting, another press conference by the President lecturing us on the need for gun control, and now Hillary and Obama are in a race to see which of them | Read More »
Tor is a tool of (fortunately incompetent) criminals
The Onion Router (better known as Tor*) is one of the favorite tools of the scum of the Internet. Thieves, terrorists, child pornographers, drug dealers, and more all love to use Tor (and Bitcoin) to run their operations. Fortunately the creeps and their software aren’t very good at this, because the FBI is blowing open holes int he whole system to catch child pornographers.
Why are we even playing this silly game?
As we come down to the home stretch of the most incompetent and abusive administration in the history of the Republic we find the Senate GOP leadership is doing everything it can to kowtow to Obama and ensure his influence continues. The Senate on Monday approved its seventh judicial nomination since Republicans took over the majority in January. Senators voted 69-21 on Dale Drozd’s nomination | Read More »
Have You Chipped In Yet?
Folks, I’m not kidding. We can flip Kentucky to our side this year. Have you donated to Matt Bevin yet? We need to do our part. Matt Bevin is an American success story. He and his wife run the last American bell manufacturer. Seriously. Does your church have a church bell? It either came from China or Matt Bevin made it. You guys need to | Read More »
