Do It For America
Neal Boortz is one of the most popular talk radio hosts in the country. I’m proud to guest host for him when he is gone. January 18, 2013, is Neal’s last day on the air, after which time I will begin in earnest harassing Rush Limbaugh to let me be his guest host. Heck, I’d even change my name to Mark. Boortz bought some really | Read More »
Fact-Checking Matt Damon’s ‘Promised Land’
“Promised Land”, Matt Damon’s anti-fracking propaganda flick, is short on science, short on industry knowledge, and geographically confused.

Remember Texas State House Republicans: Joe Straus Isn’t Your Friend
With the vote for Texas House Speaker soon, it is important to remind Texas State House Republicans that current Speaker Joe Straus is neither their friend nor really one of them. In fact, as we reported back in November, RedState has uncovered never-before-seen, profanity-laden e-mails between senior staff and legislative lieutenants of Texas’ liberal GOP House Speaker Joe Straus demonstrating disrespect for, and even hostility towards, grassroots activists and conservative lawmakers. Here again is that information.

Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!
Life in DC can be tough, especially when you are stuck playing second fiddle to Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn. Fellow Tennessee Republican Rep. Diane Black found that out last week as the new 113th Congress kicked off and she raced to introduce a pro-life bill that would defund Planned Parenthood. Unfortunately for Black, she learned her “Jan Brady lesson” the hard way as Blackburn | Read More »
We Need an Activist House GOP
In the field of politics, you either drive the narrative or become a victim of the narrative. Unfortunately, for most of the 112th Congress, the GOP-controlled House abdicated their power and became a victim of the political narrative driven by Obama and the Democrat Senate. Over the past two years, the House has been in recess almost every other week. Additionally, a large chunk of | Read More »
Two-Faced Union Bosses Help Shape Obama’s Attack On 2nd Amendment
Presuming that Obama and his union cronies are aligned, AFL-CIO boss Trumka’s involvement in the gun control discussion does not bode well for America’s 2nd Amendment.

Witness Protection Program Needed: Obama’s NLRB Gives Unions License To Intimidate & Retaliate Against Witnesses
Notwithstanding the union-backed effort to end Senate filibusters, time and time again, both publicly and behind-the-scenes, Barack Obama and his union cronies and backers work to stifle–even purge and eradicate–any form of dissent if it does not benefit union bosses.

Harry Reid Plotting to Abolish the Filibuster
There is no breathing room this year for those of us who fight endless GOP capitulations in Washington. Within the first few weeks of the new session, we must confront a grave assault on the Filibuster in the Senate. Harry Reid is plotting some version of the “nuclear option” to limit the filibuster when the Senate convenes to adopt the rules package for the new | Read More »
Blackburn: ‘America Deserves Better Than Abortion’
On January 4th, Congressman Marsha Blackburn introduced the first pro-life bill in the House for the 113th Congress. The Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act (H.R. 61) seeks to prevent the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) from giving more money to abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood. In her statement, Blackburn points out that, in 2010, Planned Parenthood received over $340 million from | Read More »
The Trouble For Conservatives
Jim Bridenstine may get a primary challenge. You may not know who he is, but Jim Bridenstine is a brand new member of Congress, a Lieutenant Commander in the Navy Reserves, a fighter pilot from the Iraq and Afghan Wars, and a strong fiscal conservative. He should be a hero to any and all Republicans. He’s a genuine bad ass. And on Day 1, he | Read More »
For many years, watching Congress has been like watching a football game where both teams punt every play. The beginning of 2013 has continued to prove the rule. More recently however, every time the Republicans punt, the President grabs the ball, spikes it, and acts as if he’s in the end zone. The media cheers right along with him, no flags are thrown, and the | Read More »
Climate Change, Climate Skeptics and Climate Fools
Under eleven grafs of organic compost, the NYT Green Blog buries its discomfiting lede: unless we’re willing to get serious about nuclear energy, it’s all just talk.

Whether the Semi-Automatic Weapons Ban Passes Depends on What Happens to the Senate Rules
It was reported yesterday that Vice President Joe Biden “guaranteed” to ailing Boston Mayor Tom Menino that sweeping gun control legislation would be passed by the end of January. How sweeping? A quick look at Feinstein’s semi-auto ban legislation suggests that up to 75% of all handguns currently in circulation would be banned, along with 50% of all long guns. Depending on its configuration, the | Read More »
Good Job by Freshmen on Flood Insurance Bill
In one of the last votes of 2012, the Senate passed Obama’s bloated Sandy “relief” bill (H.R. 1) 62-32. The $60.4 billion price tag makes this the most expensive disaster aid bill on record. It’s full of special interest projects that have nothing to do with the emergency, as witnessed by the fact that 64% of the funds will not be spent until FY 2015. | Read More »
Barack Obama’s oh-so-diverse ‘Senior Advisors.’
Wow, but that’s a lot of white guys. Please note that the picture below is from the White House’s own official Flickr account, which means that not only is calling them ‘senior advisors’ fair (I’m quoting the White House, after all); it indicates that nobody in that shop saw that picture and said Wow, but that’s a lot of white guys.
