Democrats vow to protect Boehner
Has this ever happened before in the history of the House of Representatives? A profoundly ineffective Speaker, a Speaker so weak that he has to depend on Democrat votes to pass legislation, is given assurances by the opposition party that they will protect him against his own caucus? Via The Hill: A number of right-wing Republicans, long wary of Boehner’s commitment to GOP efforts attacking | Read More »

FREAK regulation leaves us less secure
The liberals, anarchists, and socialists are all telling us how Obama’s new Internet regulation plan is such a great idea. They say we need to trust government bureaucrats to keep us better off, making the Internet more like the DMV, instead of managed by corporations which are evil because they invest, compete, and create incentives were better, faster Internet for us, makes more money for | Read More »
WHOSE hill? OUR hill! WHOSE hill? OUR hill!
Capitol Hill is America’s hill, not the Democratic party’s. We reserve the right to have our kids slide down on it when it snows.

These GOP Representatives think you are idiots UPDATED
One of the classic stunts in Washington is to vote for and against a bill. While Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) made “voting for it before voting against it” famous, he is by no means the only practitioner. Bob Dole was eviscerated because his voting record was replete with instances of him taking both sides on a position. When the House of | Read More »
Texas Files Early Discovery Motion Against Obama
The Texas Attorney General is attuned to the news cycle as the rest of us. This week came word that the Obama Administration had actually begun implementing his executive amnesty plan well before he claimed to. In fact, his administration claimed that the amnesty plan would not be implemented until mid-February. A few days before the start of implementation, a federal judge in Texas issued | Read More »
In King v. Burwell, Liberals Substitute False Confidence for Facts
Any seasoned Supreme Court watcher will tell you that it is impossible to predict with any level of certainty what the Supreme Court will do about anything. Generally speaking, the more confident someone sounds during the course of predicting the outcome of a Supreme Court case, the less confidence you should have in their analysis. This leads directly to the phenomenon we are witnessing now | Read More »
Meet the Man Advising Mitch McConnell and John Boehner
More than one hundred fifty House Republicans voted against Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% this week. They refused to vote to fund President Obama’s amnesty plan even though Boehner had summoned Fred Malek’s American Action Network to attack conservatives. Every Democrat sided with Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%, making Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 16% more powerful | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Tweets A Less Than Credible Response
We now know Hillary Clinton conducted all of her email correspondence via an email domain with a server located in her private resident. The story has been brewing for days. The other day, Clinton spoke at a kid killing conference where a bunch of people who support kid killing creepily talked about bundles of joy. At the kid killing conference, Clinton made no reference to | Read More »
Helen Nianias (@helennianias) Blatantly Distorts Dana Loesch’s Point in the UK’s Independent
I’m not sure if Helen Nianias is intentionally malicious or just mentally defective. Or perhaps I should embrace the healing power of “and.” Either way, she and the UK Independent have blatantly distorted talk radio show host Dana Loesch’s cogent point on civil liberties. They headlined their story on Dana’s comments, “Radio host Dana Loesch says gay people will be stoned to death if Christians | Read More »
Democrats Fighting for Unions and Against the Economy
Across the country, state governments have righted the ship from the brink of numerous fiscal disasters by decreasing the power of unions to coercively force members to join and to collectively bargain on non-salary issues (and thus hide budgetary costs). Within the private sector, the evidence continues to mount that unions are bad for the economy, bad for good employees, and bad for all workers | Read More »
Enough with Benghazi Already
Let me say at the outset that I understand that what happened at the embassy in Benghazi was a tragedy for everyone involved, especially for the families of those who were killed, and I do not want to minimize their loss. I think by now everyone who is paying attention to this scandal likewise understands that Ambassador Stevens and three other people are dead at | Read More »
Enough is Enough: John Boehner Must Go
Allow me to add my voice to that of my RedState colleague Bill S: after the events last week, Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% must step down as Speaker of the House. He has stabbed conservative Republicans in the back too many times, and the votes over funding the Department of Homeland Security, including Obama’s illegal executive amnesty, are merely what has | Read More »
