    This is What Happens When You Make Us Care

    In Oregon, a baker got in trouble for not wanting to bake a cake for a gay union. In New Mexico, a photographer likewise found herself on the wrong side of the law by not wanting to take pictures of a gay wedding. In Colorado, a baker faces fines for not wanting to bake a cake for a gay wedding. In each of those cases | Read More »

    New Video HAMMERS Obama On Executive Power



    What a difference six years makes.

    The above video, released tonight by The Heritage Foundation, shows two different faces of Barack Obama when it comes to executive branch. In 2008, then-candidate Obama said that America’s “biggest problems” had to do with George Bush “trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch.”

    The Establishment, Allegations of Purity, and Reality

    We all agree that Sen. Harry Reid must be dethroned.  Even from a liberal perspective, he has completely destroyed the structure of the Senate by shutting down the open amendment process, thereby eradicating the most important difference between the upper house and the lower house of the legislative branch. This year, we have the opportunity to vanquish Reid by defeating his liberal lieutenants in conservative | Read More »

Nine of the ten returned the questionnaires to GLAA. Of the nine, only one of the candidates is gay.It turns out that Bruce Majors, the only gay candidate running for mayor of Washington, D.C. also got the lowest score of | Read More »

    Ken Buck Wants Colorado to Choose a New Direction

    Since the 2008 election, in which Mark Udall rode Barack Obama’s coattails all the way to the Senate, Colorado has had the unfortunate experience of having Udall represent the will of Washington back to those of us in Colorado, rather than represent the will of Coloradan’s to those in Washington. Mark Udall voted in agreement with President Obama 99% of the time in 2013. Just | Read More »

    Primaries Matter

    The House and Senate Republicans have handed Barack Obama a blank check to raise the national debt as much as he wants. Throughout last year, Republicans said conservatives should fight on the debt ceiling, not the continuing resolution. They said they should filibuster the debt ceiling, not the continuing resolution. They said they should shut down the government over the debt ceiling, not the continuing | Read More »

    Send Senate Conservatives Fund As Much As You Can NOW

    Holy cow!! This ad is the most awesome political ad of the season so far. And it is absolutely accurate.You people need to join me in sending the Senate Conservatives Fund more money so they can get it on the air and keep it up. I saw this ad last night and immediately sent another $100.00. This is the long form web ad, but it’ll | Read More »

    The Finger Lickin’ Fraud Gets Caught in his Game

    Ever since Senator Mitch McConnell sensed some vulnerability from his Republican base in Kentucky, he has cunningly voted the right way on most major issues, but of course waiting  until the outcome was no longer in doubt.  McConnell’s painstaking management of his voting record began in two tranches – a mild drift to the right once Trey Grayson was defeated by Rand Paul in 2010 | Read More »

    Mitch McConnell Provides Key Vote to Give Obama a Blank Check

    Mitch McConnell became the key vote today to give Barack Obama blank check to increase the national debt. This debt ceiling increase is not tied to a month, but rather a time period. Consequently, the President can grow the national debt as much as he wants during that time.Sen. Ted Cruz refused to let the Senate give the President a blank check with a simple | Read More »

    “We Did Not Treat President Bush This Way”

    It is a talking point the press and Democrats (but I repeat myself) hold to dearly — Republicans are far nastier to President Obama than Democrats were to President Bush.Our own Ben Howe examines the evidence.

    ‘Impeach the President’

    You guys in the press who are reading this right now can be such shameless whores. I generally try to hold to the standard these days that if I wouldn’t be outraged by George Chimpy McBushitler Halliburton and Darth Cheney doing something, I shouldn’t be outraged by President Obama. And if I’d be outraged by Bush, I should be outraged by Obama. But you journalists | Read More »

    We’re Being Played Like Fools

    We’re Being Played Like Fools

    If there is any agreement on fiscal issues in Washington it is that we must do something about the growing debt and long-term unfunded liabilities.  With the debt exploding by over $6.6 trillion under Obama’s watch, the only leverage conservatives had to force a path to balance the budget was the debt ceiling – a built-in check on runaway spending.  Yet, ever since they took | Read More »

    Keeping Track of the Rule

    House Republicans will vote to cleanly raise the debt ceiling today. They will do so relying on Democrat votes to make it happen.Many House Republicans will vote against raising the debt ceiling.But before they do that, they will vote for the rule related to the legislation. Each major piece of legislation has a rule that gets voted on setting out the parameters of debate, etc. | Read More »

    D.C. Oligarchy Performs Broadway Amnesty Show

    Despite all the talk about partisan acrimony in Washington, the establishment in both parties is doing a great job working together to pass amnesty.  In fact, their carefully choreographed kabuki theater in the media should win them awards for great team work against the Country Class. The news out of Washington last week was that Speaker John Boehner got the message loud and clear from | Read More »
