Ted Cruz, It Is Time for You To Listen
We here love Ted Cruz. He is a friend. He has been to every RedState Gathering. He is just an awesome guy. But it is time for him to listen. For the past two years he has been telling America to make DC listen. It became a clever hashtag. He got his picture with that hashtag at a RedState Gathering. At the Texas Republican Convention | Read More »
10 Observations on Last Night’s Miracle for We the People
1) Dave Brat is one of the most genuine, God-fearing, and humble candidates I’ve met this year. He had no interest in doing this for himself; it was all about the cause. He was gracious to Eric Cantor from day one and never engaged in politics of personal destruction. 2) There are obviously numerous disparate factors that play into the final outcome of an election. | Read More »
Heritage Action is a Better Measure of Conservativism Than the American Conservative Union
The press, by habit, likes to fixate on the American Conservative Union and its scorecard. Its scorecard, which is produced in ways that always seem to help the party leadership, had Eric Cantor with a 95% rating. The press sees that and thinks conservatives must have lost their minds to oust Eric Cantor. They’re eating their own. The American Conservative Union has long been a | Read More »
DONATE TO DAVE BRAT NOW
I’ve been encouraging people to support Dave Brat, but I honestly didn’t spend any time here on his campaign. I, like pretty much everyone else, was pretty sure he had not one chance in hell. He was outspent by more than 20 to 1. No one knew who he was. And he won. Praise God! It is a great day for the Republic. Many of | Read More »
Why Eric Cantor Lost
The death of the tea party has been greatly exaggerated. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his primary tonight to David Brat, a man who was significantly outspent. Cantor spent $5 million to Brat’s $122,000.00. The media will play up Cantor’s loss by claiming it was about immigration. They will be wrong, but it will be useful for the rest of us. Immigration reform is | Read More »
The Great American Miracle
I literally don’t know what to say and am at a loss of words. I’ve spent the past few weeks working with people on the ground in VA-7 to help Dave Brat turn in a strong showing. I originally thought the notion of Eric Cantor being vulnerable was a joke, but Dave Brat, a great American patriot, rose to the occasion. It became clear to | Read More »
David Brat defeats Eric Cantor
I don’t know what else to say.
Eric Cantor on the edge of defeat
With 57% of precincts reporting, David Brat leads Eric Cantor by 15 points. Barring a deus ex machina of galactic proprotions, Eric Cantor will lose his primary race.
Doddering Old Man Thad Cochran Uses Angry Words Against Chris McDaniel
Someone must have slipped Thad Cochran some geritol and metamucil. He’s decided to throw some rhetorical punches at state senator Chris McDaniel. Cochran calls McDaniel an “extremist” and “dangerous.” Mind you, Cochran has previously admitted he only knows about the tea party from what he reads in the paper. Perhaps Cochran is only reading the Democrat run Clarion-Ledger in Mississippi. Actually, considering he does not | Read More »
Senate Committee Passes $2 billion in Aid for Illegal Invasion
Word has gotten out in Central American publications that anyone who wants to drop their poverty off on America’s doorstep will be accommodated. Those rumors were well founded. I’m sure the Framers had this in mind when they gave Congress the power of the purse. At a time when Americans are languishing from a stagnating economy and crushing debt, the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Labor-HHS | Read More »
County Backtracks, Decides Not to Violate Right of Assembly with Proposal that Could Cripple Home Bible Studies
Today, in a victory for the Constitution and common sense, a proposal to limit the number of people you are allowed to have in the privacy of your own home was shelved by local officials.
The blatantly unconstitutional proposal would have violated the right of assembly and threatened to shut down home Bible studies in Fairfax County.

Christian baker sentenced to re-education for opposing homosexual marriage
An Administrative Law judge in Colorado named Robert Spencer has issued an extraordinary rule in the case of Masterpiece Cake Shop which refused to help two homosexuals make a mockery of marriage. A Colorado baker found guilty of discrimination for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple must go through sensitivity training as part of his penance and rehabilitation. In December of | Read More »
Eric Cantor announces House summer legislative priorities
Eric Cantor has released the summer legislative agenda for the House and it is as notable for what is not on it as what it includes: Majority Leader Eric Cantor laid out a busy legislative agenda for the remainder of June in a memo to House Republicans sent Friday, scheduling floor time to address issues at the Department of Veterans Affairs, three appropriations bills, three | Read More »
The Nanny State Hates Your Cheese
If you are anything close to a foodie, you know you have to buy imported parmesan cheese to get a good parmesan flavor. American cheeses like parmesan must be pasteurized to be sold in interstate commerce. The flavor is much saltier without the good tangy taste of an unpasteurized parmesan. But, humorously, imported unpasteurized parmesan and other cheeses are available. There is a noticeable difference | Read More »
Tech at Night: The Online Gambling Debate
So, online gambling. Right now there are two major pushes going on to get new legislation related to online gambling. Neither is a small government position, and I oppose them both. The current law as it stands isn’t bad. It could be better, but either plan out there right now would make things worse.
To summarize, the two plans out there are both masquerading as right-wing positions, however one turns out to be a classic big government picking of winners and losers, and the other is big regulatory government masquerading as libertarianism. We must pass neither.
