Secession in the U.S.?
Via The Economist: The towns are in New York’s Southern Tier. They sit on top of the Marcellus Shale, which is full of natural gas. New Yorkers, unlike their Pennsylvanian neighbours, are not allowed to tap the gas because of a state ban on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) announced by Andrew Cuomo, the governor, on December 17th. Hours later on the same day, a state panel | Read More »

John Boehner Will Fund President Obama’s Amnesty
I told y’all he was lying when he puffed his chest and said he’d stop the President. He had no intention of doing so. And now Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% will ensure President Obama’s executive amnesty is funded. He will, like so many other Republican leaders, hide behind a court to fight for him. Coward.
Boehner folds like a cheap suit
By the time you read this, the drama may be over, the Constitution shredded, the GOP held in disrepute by everyone except the Chamber of Commerce, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58% and Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% gagged and shackled in a dark basement while Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 14% films his “personal trainer” having his | Read More »
Homeland Security funding and the imminent Constitutional crisis
Whether by ignorance or design a large number of GOP members in the House and Senate are misrepresenting what is a stake with the funding of the Department of Homeland security. The issue has nothing to do with the operations of an agency where well over 80% of it will stay on the job regardless of what action the Congress takes. The issue is not | Read More »
The Irony of Fred Malek’s American Action Network Attacks
As I mentioned this morning former McCain National Finance Co-Chairman Fred Malek’s group, American Action Network, is running ads attacking conservative congressmen for not funding Obama’s executive amnesty. Everyone knows the attacks are coordinated on behalf of Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%. They are not even trying to hide it. The head of the group is the former head of the National | Read More »
Fred Malek and John Boehner Declare War on Conservative Congressmen
The American Action Network claims to be a “conservative” group. It was started by prominent Republican, Fred Malek, who maintains close ties to the Establishment and was Finance Co-Chairman of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 53%‘s 2008 Presidential campaign. It is run by Mike Shields, formerly of the National Republican Congressional Committee. Prior to Shields, Brian Walsh of the NRCC ran it. It | Read More »
Tech at Night: What does FCC have to hide in Obama’s Internet regulation plan?
Mike O’Rielly continues to do outstanding work, joining Ajit Pai in exposing the dangerous lack of transparency the Obama administration has shown. This is pretty bad. What does the FCC have to hide?
The Fundamental Problem with a Jeb Bush Presidency (and a Hillary Clinton one)
I want you to do something you will not want to naturally do. You too Laura Ingraham. I want you all to do this because I consider it very important. I want you to presume you agree with Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton (your choice) on everything. I want you to presume that Jeb or Hillary is the ideal candidate in your mind. I know | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s e-mails at State Department were entirely private #2016
This is cause for some concern. WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides | Read More »
Obama’s Executive Amnesty is Much, Much Worse than You Think
Unless you are one of Obama’s bootlickers in the Senate, you probably are under the impression that Obama’s executive amnesty is a bad idea even if, like me, you are somewhat squishy on the issue of immigration itself. But however bad you thought it was that Obama is seeking to unilaterally rewriting a law that is constitutionally within the exclusive purview of Congress, you will | Read More »
Hillary Clinton STARTED OFF as the villain. How does she plan to become the hero?
If Hillary Clinton wants to run with Obama and not against him, she will have to run against herself.

Boehner looks for a life line… from the Democrats
As we saw last week, Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%‘s leadership has become so weak that he’s being forced to subcontract the Speakership to minority leader Nancy “no really, I never have to blink” Pelosi. His attempt to fund DHS for three weeks was rejected by the House, he lost 51 GOP votes. The week long extension passed because Pelosi whipped | Read More »

My Candid Candidate Thoughts After CPAC
Watch out conservatives. Jeb Bush is in this to win this and he just might. I met privately with Governor Bush at CPAC. He struck me as far more polished than many of the other candidates and he clearly recognizes the quality, however superficial it might be to some, of looking the part. More interesting, I have a ton of friends who like him. They | Read More »
