Why do we even bother?
A couple of days ago, Ben Domenech, writing in The Transom, asked a question that many of us have been asking (at least) since the first of the year: Why does the Republican Party exist? What is its purpose as a political entity – to what end do its members work to elect their fellow Republicans? What are its priorities? Whose interests does it serve? | Read More »
“Cuckservative” is a Racist Slur and an Attack on Evangelical Christians
Despite the white washing by Breitbart.com (pun intended), the phrase “cuckservative” is a racist slur. It is used by racists in support of a racialist agenda. The people who use it are not opposed to illegal immigration, but are opposed to immigration in general. They are opposed to evangelical Christians who support interracial adoption. They are opposed to anyone who does not think in terms | Read More »
Mitch McConnell’s Yips
Y’all need to read this. What you’re hearing all around Capitol Hill over the past few days is the murmur of staffers saying nervously what their bosses can’t: Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% has the yips. Say what you will about McConnell’s ideological grounding, or lack thereof – there was a time when the total leadership failure of the past week would | Read More »
Newsflash: Republican Senators Love Cronyism
With the Republican takeover of Congress earlier this year, conservatives hoped we’d see an end to cronyism. We hoped in vain. It turns out Washington has proceeded as normal, carrying on with its usual tricks. The GOP-controlled Senate is working hard to revive the Export-Import Bank. And the Senate wants to bring back a bunch of “green energy subsidies” that we thought we had dispensed with. | Read More »
Planned Parenthood attacks
“Deny everything. Admit nothing. Blame others. Make counter-accusations.” That, in a nutshell, is the Planned Parenthood strategy for surviving the revelations that far from being a non-profit they are a rapacious and conscienceless entity that would have shamed the Burkers of Regency London. Now that a politically connected — by ‘politically connected’ I mean Democrat –crisis communications firms is on board we are seeing an | Read More »
Planned Parenthood Is Our Auschwitz
The third undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood from the Center for Medical Progress is out. By now, the takeaway from this media is clear: this is our Auschwitz. Some might recoil at this statement. Wait a minute, they’re thinking, cool your jets. Auschwitz was a concentration camp. That’s not Planned Parenthood. In the simplest terms, no, Planned Parenthood is not a concentration camp. It is | Read More »
So, @PPFA hired a PR team to suppress the videos
This is according to POLITICO: Planned Parenthood has hired high-profile Washington public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker as it scrambles to deal with the ongoing scandal and release of a third undercover video Tuesday showing a clinic’s staff handling fetal tissue after an abortion. The additional PR firepower reflects the growing pressure on the women’s health organization amid building GOP calls to cut its $540 million in | Read More »
I dunno, folks. What *do* you call a socialist who ISN’T an internationalist?
Look, Marxism was all about internationalizing the socialist movement: “Workers of the world, unite!” “…I don’t think so. Bernie don’t play that.”

The GOP Senate is Not On Our Side
We have reached the point where a clear majority of sitting Republican Senators do not deserve your vote even in the general election. I say this because, quite simply, they have demonstrated time and time again that they are not on our side. Instead, they are on their own side. The priorities that these nattering, out of touch buffoons have embraced are so far out | Read More »
Missing in Action: Where is Rand Paul?
My single biggest surprise this election season is the failure of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 88% to do much of anything. He has loyal support, a unique message, a foundation laid by his father, a cheery disposition, and a really crummy campaign team. Put it to you this way: Ben Carson has out raised Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 88%. | Read More »
The GOP’s solid state base.
State races have been very, very good for the GOP. Alas, that can change in a heartbeat.

The F-35 May Need To Be Permanently Grounded
The DoD Acquisition Community has spoken on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. According to a recent NRO article they have concluded the following: “The F-35 program is a mess; it is unaffordable and will not be able to fulfill its mission.” I work in DoD acquisition and find that to be a heavily freighted commentary that oversimplifies the situation at hand. An unaffordable program is | Read More »

Maybe we could’ve done this a bit better?
Let’s say I were a liberal Republican Senate Majority Leader. I have two major concerns before me: Nothing I really want can get done with conservatives on one side of me and Democrats to the other. There are three issues to take care of. The first has to do with highway funds and the special money that gets set aside in pet projects for all | Read More »
Close to Home
Last week, a man with a history of mental health issues opened fire in a theater in Lafayette, Louisiana. Two women were killed, several more were injured, and he took his own life when he saw there was no way out. It appears as though he had planned to escape, using a car he left near the scene, and it is likely more attacks may | Read More »
