New Year Opens With Big Spending Bang
Congress plans to kick off the new legislative session the same way it ended the last one. They will continue to spend more money. When Congress voted on the Ryan-Murray budget deal before adjourning for Christmas, members were only signing off on the topline discretionary spending figures, not the individual accounts for all the departments and agencies. They agreed to repeal part of the sequester | Read More »

Just when UAW Vice President General Holiefield probably thought things couldn’t get any worse, he goes and accidentally shoots his new wife.

A New Year With the Same Problems
Having managed to work every day of my vacation, getting back into the swing of things isn’t really swinging. I hope you all had a Happy New Year. As we cross over into 2014, there is not a lot that has changed these past couple of weeks. People will not fully feel the effects of Obamacare. The economy is still “recovering.” And New York has | Read More »
Justice Sotomayor puts temporary stay on contraception mandate case.
So, what’s going on, here? Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Tuesday temporarily blocked the Obama administration from forcing some religious-affiliated groups to provide health insurance coverage of birth control or face penalties as part of the Affordable Care Act. Acting at the request of an order of nuns in Colorado, Justice Sotomayor issued the stay just hours before the requirement was to go into effect on | Read More »
Another NY Democrat Is Banned From Having Interns While Being Investigated For Sexual Harassment
The Bubba Rule simply states that any time a New York Democrat is being investigated for sexual harassment (which is seemingly quite often), said Democrat will no longer be allowed to work around interns. It is implemented with the belief that the lawmaker is such a perpetual sexual predator, that they can’t possibly control themselves around female interns. It has been previously invoked for such | Read More »
Why I #BackBuck and You Should Too
Next year, conservatives have an opportunity to take back the Senate and expand the GOP majority in the House. The stage has been set for another cycle reminiscent of the wave election of 2010. The chance to make D.C. listen is nearly upon us. In Colorado, we have a conservative champion who is not ashamed of his principles, and is proud to stand with conservative | Read More »
The independent year
When I talk with anyone who professes to be a political “independent,” I always ask what they imagine they’re still “independent” from. There is less and less room for genuine independence in our dwindling private sector. Of course, the independent voter is generally more interested in declaring his liberation from the two major political parties. Maybe he doesn’t like either of them, or dislikes the | Read More »
Let the Big Wind subsidies die.
It doesn’t look good for this particular set of Obama cronies, but you never know. At issue right now is the production tax credit that awards wind developers 2.3 cents for every kilowatt-hour they produce. Last New Year’s Day, after a ferocious debate that occupied a portion of the 2012 presidential debate, Congress passed a one-year extension of the wind-energy credit as part of the | Read More »
Tech at Night: Yes, get your card replaced if you went to Target. Rogers: Snowden commited treason
So I took Christmas off, but don’t forget: even as Democrats play blame the Victim, you should get your debit card or credit card replaced if you used it at Target recently. The attackers got your PIN even.
The traitor Edward Snowden very interestingly says he won, which seems to mean he thinks it’s himself against we the people. He’s sure not on the side of liberty, when he’s on the side of the child pornography den Tor. And yet, He’s still desperately trying to feel his Russian paymasters. Not even loyal to them.

The Mundane Becoming Controversial
I have a great ability to make the mundane controversial on twitter. Tonight I mentioned that I’m largely in agreement with Anglican theologian N.T. Wright’s view of what happens to people who run away from God. In essence, they lose their humanity. They are only brought back with love and the Gospel. This shouldn’t be controversial. It’s actually a 2000 year old theological concept. The | Read More »
14 For ’14
(1) AMEND THE UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION WITH A ONE-YEAR DELAY OF OBAMACARE’S INDIVIDUAL MANDATE Reading the New York Times is like planting a listening device in Hitler’s bunker. So Monday morning, assuming no conservative would notice, the Times printed the Democrats’ comprehensive strategy for the 2014 elections: Distract attention from ObamaCare by pushing unemployment extension and minimum wage increases — – issues which would be packaged | Read More »

Meet David Campbell, New Hampshire state Democrat: “The ducks should have moved.”
Yeah, it’s about what you think. [Retired USMVC officer James] Murphy said he had just tossed the ducks some crackers when he spotted Campbell’s dark sedan approaching from a side parking lot near the hotel entrance. “All of a sudden, this 5 Series BMW comes up, it’s going about 15 miles an hour, and then when he gets to the ducks, it’s not like it | Read More »
Support Ted Cruz
As we close out the year, we need to remember the tough fights Ted Cruz has led and fought when no one else would.They’ve almost completed the fundraising goal and every bit helps.
Quote of the Day, Ya Got Trouble, Right Here in West Virginia… edition.
Trouble with a capital T and that rhymes with D and that stands for “Democrat.” In a Sheraton ballroom, Ms. [Natalie] Tennant, West Virginia’s [Democratic] secretary of state, listened to Michelle Obama urge donors to write “a big old fat check” to her and other women running for the Senate. But back home, where President Obama is deeply unpopular, Ms. Tennant’s campaign quickly sought to | Read More »
