This is an Easy Fix by Chris Christie
First, it actually is pretty brilliant that Christie came out using Barack Obama’s standard excuse of not knowing and being misled. That’s well played.Second, this is such an easy fix. Christie can turn it around quickly. He needs to follow through and see that heads roll.

Democrats and their Pathetic Unemployment Decoy
It’s understandable why Democrats would feel embarrassed about unemployment. Employers are cutting jobs, reducing hours, and lowering wages as a direct result of the Obamacare mandates and taxes. Instead of putting out the fire that they set, Democrats have decided to distract our attention by offering band aids for the economic burns in the form of unprecedented long-term unemployment benefits. Typically, the Unemployment Insurance program | Read More »

Peter King Raised Money for Terrorists While They Were Murdering American Allies
John McCain really captures the essence of Peter King. There is little in Mr. King’s singularly unimpressive legislative record to suggest that he is motivated by anything other than a compulsion to utter provocative sound bites. I have never met a single other Republican who felt that Mr. King spoke for the party or for any Republican other than himself. Indeed, the only Republican organization | Read More »
The Coming Amnesty Offensive and the Need to Clean House
House GOP leaders have made it crystal clear that it is their intention to pass an amnesty bill based upon every liberal premise of the immigration issue. The only question is timing. Conservatives must sound the alarm and acknowledge that engaging in the upcoming primaries is the only way to preempt Obamacare 2.0 in the lame duck years of Obama’s tenure. When talking with many | Read More »

They are able to fund and support candidates online in a way we can only dream about. And they intend to harness the power of the online left to support candidates in states around the country. One of those states is going | Read More »
I find myself writing more and more about matters of faith. And in writing about matters of faith, I find the hostility of the critics and opponents vastly more ferocious than when I just stick to politics. When I was in England back in November, I had breakfast with Matthew Lee Anderson. He said he noticed I had taken to writing about faith more and | Read More »

Rep. Peter King lashed out at Senator Rand Paul today over Sen. Paul’s position on the National Security Agency.In a bit of hysteria, he questioned Senator Paul’s patriotism and loyalty to the United States. This is pretty rich considering Rep.

Death, Taxes, and Obamacare
Democrats plan to make 2014 about the minimum wage. Several news reports suggest the party plans to coordinate with unions to get ballot initiatives going around the nation to raise the minimum wage. They think this will incentivize turn out for them in 2014. It is an admission against interest they think Obamacare is hurting them. It is also foolhardy.
