Texas Rep. John Culberson’s Staff Hate Sen. Ted Cruz For Holding Events in Texas
Everything that is wrong with Washington Republicans is summed up in this story. You have a top aide for Eric Cantor going into the Republican Study Committee meeting to discuss terms of surrender over the continuing resolution and debt ceiling. You have an aide to Senator Ted Cruz respond with a solution to the Cantor aide. Then you have an aide to Rep. John Culberson | Read More »
Pew and USA Today find no tipping point for Affordable Care Act
Sometimes, as in the case of Roe v. Wade, a change in the law of the land will result in a large change of public opinion in favor of the new change. Once the change is made, certain levels of resistance go away, and others just come to accept it.
Not so in the case of PPACA, Pew finds.

The 5 underpinnings of the Cuccinelli comeback
Virginia Republican Gubernatorial candidate, Ken Cuccinelli has ranked consistently behind Democrat candidate, Terry McAuliffe in polls over the past few months. But 55 days out, political animals know that an eternity remains for Cuccinelli to make up the difference, which is exactly what he will do. Recent polls have McAuliffe up by 5-8 points. But this is a soft lead. Cuccinelli’s base support is strong | Read More »
Grow Up, People. Including You, @DavidFrum
For everything there is a season,and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die … a time to keep silence, and a time to speak Oh the irony of me telling others to grow up. Even I see that. But seriously people, grow up.As a shooter roamed the Navy Yard and body lie dying, but still | Read More »
The Void Filled, the Polling Goes Up. So #DefundIt
Until the Syrian calamity of the past week or so, we’ve been in the August-September vacuum of news. Congress and the President, on vacation, wait for stories to crop up that dominate the news cycle.The disappearance of Chandra Levy, Cindy Sheehan to the Crawford Ranch, Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office with a blue dress and cigar, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth — these are | Read More »

Liberals Are Upset at Being Exposed and Concede Defeat
Poor Greg Sargent. If it isn’t enough that the DNC has its hand up his posterior controlling him muppet style, he’s all sore over this post of mine pointing out the collaborative nexus between Democrats, liberal groups, and the supposed objective media. Sargent is convinced — CONVINCED I tell you — that this is some sort of definitive take down of my post. Steve Benen, | Read More »

From the position of a partisan I’ve enjoyed Obama beclowning himself over Syria. As an American I am appalled at the incompetence of it all.
Jim DeMint is Winning America
Over the past several weeks, Republican aides in Congress have planted a number of stories attacking the Heritage Foundation, Heritage Action for America, and the Senate Conservatives Fund — three groups closely associated with former Senator Jim DeMint. DeMint started the Senate Conservatives Fund. He’s now President of the Heritage Foundation. Heritage Action for America is an offshoot of Heritage. The reason Republicans have been | Read More »
Why the Media Will Never Treat Conservatives Fairly
I have written a number of pieces in the past year about conservatives having a “poor little ole me” attitude when it comes to the media. Conservatives are convinced the media is out to get them. They are convinced the media is covering up stories and covering for the Obama Administration.Often, conservatives are flat out wrong. They are so convinced the media is out to | Read More »

The Establishment’s Projection
Brian Walsh, formerly of the NRSC, has a much buzzed about op-ed at US News claiming that Heritage Action for America and the Senate Conservatives fund profit from attacking Republicans.He writes, “[M]oney begets TV ads which begets even more money for these groups’ personal coffers. Pointing fingers and attacking Republicans is apparently a very profitable fundraising business.” This is fascinating. Brian Walsh, while at the | Read More »

The U.S. government is now officially arming and supplying an al-Qaeda front group in Syria. You’d think these people would eventually learn that they aren’t very smart.

Time and Tradition
Martin John Coughlan. Courtney Wainsworth Walcott. Jeffery Peter Mladenik. LTG Timothy J. Maude. These are just four of the nearly three thousand victims of terror that befell our nation on September 11, 2001. They are names few know outside their family. But they should be honored and remembered. Wednesday, the nation did stop and remember these and the other souls who met their deaths when | Read More »
