Republicans Fund Monkey Drug Habits and Rat Ejaculate
In case you thought that Republicans had in any way turned their back on frivolous spending, here is a reminder that they have not. According to The Atlantic, Republicans have completely surrendered on even the idea of curtailing government spending on frivolous research that could just as easily be funded by the private sector. In this case, we’re talking about funding for the National Institutes of | Read More »
Have you seen the Ted Cruz / Duck Dynasty campaign ad?
Ted Cruz got a Duck Dynasty endorsement ad that’s pretty awesome on general principles, actually.

Nancy Pelosi is Not Pro-Choice Enough for NARAL
Poor Nancy Pelosi just can’t seem to keep friends on either side of the fence. In an interview with Roll Call, Pelosi parroted her usual heinous talking points about how Republicans are evil and clearly want all women to die simply because they oppose killing tiny babies. She spent almost the entire time spinning reality in order to properly demonize Republicans. It would seem she | Read More »
Ted Cruz Is Breaking Through the Establishment Firewall
Though he is loathed by the GOP grifting consultant class and the stars of Failure Theater in the Senate, Ted Cruz is quietly making in-roads with the GOP donor class who want a win more than anything else.

President Obama Releasing 10 More “Hardcore” Terrorists in Deadly Ploy to Close Gitmo
President Obama is relentless in his pursuit of legacy, throwing caution (and our national security) to the wind. Tomorrow his reckless Administration is set to release 10 more “hardcore” terrorist enemy combatants from Gitmo.
Releasing these battle-hardened terrorists only to have them plot and kill again is a dereliction of President Obama’s sworn duty to protect America.

Marco Rubio Is Now Getting Attacked Unfairly For Killing Charlie Crist’s Climate Scheme
In 2007, Florida’s newly-elected “Republican” Governor Charlie Crist announced, with much fanfare, a costly “cap and trade” plan to regulate carbon emissions by Florida electric power plants. In the Spring 2008 legislative session, Crist pushed the Florida legislature to adopt his mandates into law. During the months-long public debate on the plan, Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio called for free-market approaches to “clean energy” and | Read More »
Obama Plans “Audacious Executive Action” in Final Year
If you were expecting Obama, based on his State of the Union address, to be more interested in seeking compromise and working with Congress for bipartisan goals–and let’s be honest, who really was?–you’re about to be sorely disappointed. The President, through his chief of staff Denis McDonough, is promising us that he won’t let up on executive actions in the final year of his term. From The | Read More »
The Establishment Revolution
Last night, after Nikki Haley’s response to the existence of Donald Trump (and Barack Obama’s speech, too), the most remarkable thing happened. People started calling Nikki Haley – yes, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley – a member of the “Establishment,” the shadow organization of Republican operatives who work to stifle the conservative movement. Think about that. Nikki Haley. Establishment. What? In the Donald Trump Era of | Read More »
Experiment Proves that Armed Citizens CAN Take Down an Active Shooter (VIDEO)
Our sister site Bearing Arms has video of a fascinating experiment conducted by a DFW television affiliate as to whether an armed citizen stands a reasonable chance of materially affecting the outcome in an active shooter situation. One of the tiresome canards of the left is that citizens with concealed handguns would be of absolutely no value in an actual active shooter situation versus someone | Read More »
The US Navy In the Persian Gulf Fiasco And American Power In the Age Of Obama
Yesterday, clearly as a bit of extemporaneous theater to celebrate Obama’s State of the Union self-idolatry, Iran seized two US Navy vessels and ten US sailors. The sailors and vessels have since been returned. However, what you are seeing above is what the Middle East is seeing. If you don’t feel a sense of shame, don’t read further.

Is it just me, or does Donald Trump Look a little Fascist in this Video?
As someone who attends a lot of public events, I detest hecklers. They are rude and annoying, and I have no problem with them being escorted from a venue so that people can hear the person they came to hear. Generally, when the speaker is a politician, they tend to stand politely while the offending party is removed, or make a lighthearted quip in response | Read More »
House GOP one-ups Obama’s SOTU on criminal justice reform
President Barack Obama used his State of the Union message to push a forward-looking agenda, as is the style these days. One element was to reduce sentences on crimes he doesn’t think are all that serious. The House GOP is going a step further, and interestingly enough, Obama is opposing it. I guess he only wants show reform, not real reform.
Turkish courts get it right on punishing hackers
American courts are so weak about prosecuting hackers. Aaron Swartz’s defenders had a freak-out when he was at risk of getting up to 50 years, after turning down a 6 month plea, because he willfully disrupted a major university’s access to important, expensive data. But when online attackers hurt many people all at once, the law is wrong when if doesn’t take into account each | Read More »
Conservative Women? Look to Nikki Haley, Not Ann Coulter
One theme in this crazy election cycle has been the great divide between the level-headed, working to identify problems and solutions, and the shrill, constantly attacking and seeking only soundbites. It’s clear which of the Republican presidential candidates fit into these categories. Of the pundits and politicians surrounding the candidates, the divide is just as great. For conservative women, it’s quite obvious who should be our | Read More »
The Establishment Chooses Trump Over Cruz
There is a growing sense among political pundits, especially of the establishment class, that only Ted Cruz has a reasonable shot at stopping Donald Trump. Jeb Bush has already achieved terminal velocity, Christie and Kasich have been unable to break the top 3 in New Hampshire, and Fiorina has been demoted from the debate main stage. Rubio, who was their 6th or 7th choice, has | Read More »
