Dianne Feinstein slanders PTSD sufferers.
And why is she dumber than soup? It is not entirely because of this errant nonsense: At a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting on Thursday, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) opposed an amendment to her Assault Weapons Ban legislation that would allow military veterans to continue to buy the firearms that would be banned. Feinstein says a veteran may be mentally ill and should be prevented from | Read More »
Tom Cole: The New John McCain of the House
Dear residents of southwest Oklahoma, There is only one liberal left in your district (OK-4- PVI=R+18), and he happens to be your representative in Congress. His name is Tom Cole. Maybe you should elect someone next year who will represent the heartland and challenge the status quo instead of serving as a conduit for the left to attack conservatives. Tom Cole, like most of the | Read More »

The Power of One Man’s Conviction
What was it about Rand Paul’s filibuster that has captivated conservatives all over the country and reinvigorated their desire to fight for our Constitutional Republic? The irony is that the drone issue was not even one of the most popular issues among many conservatives until last night. I suspect that many conservatives don’t necessarily agree with some of Paul’s assertions about targeting terrorists like Al-Awlaki | Read More »
Citizens, Subjects and The Greatness of Rand Paul’s Filibuster
There are two ways you can relate to the entity that governs you. You are either a citizen or you are a subject. There is a significant difference between the two. This difference involves the number of rights you enjoy and the amount of freedom of action and thought you get to exercise. Tupac Shapur sums it succinctly: Real n—– do they wanna do, b—- n—– do what they can.
In a philosophical sense, Senator Rand Paul just asked Attorney General Eric Holder which class we, the average American fit. Can we do what we want or do we what we can? Or more directly; can the people in charge of the government do what they want? Because if the government can do what it wants, then the people are not citizens, they are subjects, they have to do what they can.
This political moment of import erupted from a rather mundane Senate Hearing. President Barack Obama needed a new Director CIA Director. His former Director, David Petraeus was ummm, compromised. He selected John Brennan and expected that the Senate would advise, consent and go back to playing with their Power Ranger Action Figures instead of passing a Federal Budget. Then a wee fly landed in the ointment…

Google throws cash in to honor FTC Chairman (While being investigated by him)
This somehow flew under my radar last week. As you may have noticed, in spite of my constant use of Google, I don’t trust the guys as far as I can throw them. And they’re huge. I think in any other circumstance, the amount of “big brother” stigma that would follow these guys around would be palpable, especially on the left. But Google cares about | Read More »
Thank Jim DeMint
You can thank Jim DeMint for Rand Paul’s filibuster. Rand Paul would not be in the Senate but for Jim DeMint’s help. In fact, during the filibuster, Rand Paul has been assisted by Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and others who would not be there but for Jim DeMint. Had Jim DeMint not created the Senate Conservatives Fund, we’d have David Dewhurst, Charlie Crist, | Read More »
The Rand Paul Filibuster: A Point Not to be Missed
Rand Paul has done a brilliant thing filibustering the President’s appointment to the CIA. By keeping the filibuster going through prime time, Rand Paul forced ABC, CBS, and NBC — chief sources of news for low information voters — to cover the issue. Along the way, Rand Paul had help giving him time to rest his voice. Ted Cruz came down a few hours in | Read More »
Florida is Working
Conservatives are disappointed of late with Governor Rick Scott’s decision about Medicaid, but we should not let it overshadow the fact that he is otherwise doing an excellent job as Governor. On Tuesday, Gov. Scott gave his state of the state address to the Florida legislature pointing out his agenda has been pro-family, pro-life, and pro-business. During Charlie Crist’s Governorship, Florida lost 825,500 jobs, but | Read More »
Guy Who Called Romney a Douche on TV Thinks Obama is a Racist
Roger Ailes says Barack Obama is lazy. The media has blown it into a big story with the facts not on the media’s side. Van Jones, who on live national television called Mitt Romney a douche, was outrageously outraged by Roger Ailes’s assertion on CNN and even hinted that it might be racist for Ailes to say so. The media is yet again willfully choosing | Read More »

A very contrarian view of Aaron Swartz that will do me no favors.
Sorry for that. But I read this New Yorker piece about Aaron Swartz (short version: was being prosecuted by the government for illegally downloading JSTOR archives; recently committed suicide), and this is the narrative that I take from it: Once upon a time there was a very bright, but easily bored boy who spent his entire life not having to do anything that he didn’t | Read More »
Mike Lee Will Join Ted Cruz Opposing the Continuing Resolution
Ted Cruz will not stand alone. He’ll be joined by the Senator from Utah. Here’s a statement from Senator Lee’s office: “I will join Senator Cruz in objecting to Senate consideration of any Continuing Resolution without a vote on delaying funding of Obamacare. Defunding Obamacare is essential to restoring economic growth. At this time of fiscal turmoil, Congress shouldn’t borrow more money to pay for | Read More »
Restore Growth First – Defund Obamacare
For the last four years, our economy has grown at just 0.8% per year. As a result of this anemic growth, 23 million Americans are struggling to find work, and millions more are being denied a fair opportunity to achieve the American dream. Economic growth these past four years has been a small fraction of historic levels: since World War II, our economy has averaged | Read More »
