Ryan-Murray and the Fundamental Lack of Seriousness in Washington
Yesterday, Republicans in the Senate blamed Harry Reid for cutting veterans’ pensions. But the House of Representatives passed the legislation first. The GOP could have fixed it there had Speaker Boehner spent more time reading his legislation than attacking conservatives. Once passed, the House of Representatives headed home for Christmas. Had Harry Reid let the amendment through on Ryan-Murray, the Senate would have had to | Read More »
Amanda Renteria’s (D CAND, California-21 PRI) official site is a #NRCC attack website.
Buzzfeed: Amanda Renteria is a Democrat challenging Rep. David Valadao in California’s 21st district. She also has a perfectly good campaign website, [site link removed]. But on her FEC Statement of Organization, Renteria lists her official website as renteria4congress.com, which is actually an attack website set up by the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Ultimately There Will Be No Option for Silence or the Sidelines. You Will Be Made To Care.
I have told you people again and again. You will be made to care. Evil preaches tolerance until it is dominant and then it seeks to silence good. Phil Robertson, patriarch of the Duck Dynasty clan, honestly answered questions during an GQ interview. He spoke openly of his Christian faith. Because he offended a secular left at war with orthodox Christianity, he must be punished. | Read More »

Paul Ryan & the GOP Must Own the Cuts to Veterans Benefits
Republicans in the Senate want to restore veterans benefits to the Paul Ryan – Patty Murray Budget plan. Harry Reid is blocking the amendment so Republicans are blaming Harry Reid for cutting veterans benefits. That is intellectually dishonest of the GOP. Paul Ryan, a Republican, drafted the plan with Patty Murray, a Democrat. House Republicans overwhelming approved the plan before it even made it to | Read More »
The Real Four Best Climate Change Stories of 2013
In the midst of what is shaping up to be a remarkable winter, liberals are doing their level best to cling to the fiction of human caused global warming. Recently, Neil Bhatiya of the Century Foundation published what he calls “2013’s Four Best Climate Change Stories.” Curiously absent from the article, is any mention of the rapidly evaporating evidence for global warming.

Baltimore Sun: Maryland MUST consider scrapping its state #obamacare exchange.
The sound that you just heard was Martin O’Malley’s Presidential ambitions getting shot in the gut: …the pace of enrollments is still far too low. If the [Maryland state] exchange is able to replicate its best weekday and weekend performance during every one of the 104 days between now and the end of the open enrollment period on March 31, Maryland will still only achieve | Read More »

Mitch ‘The Magician’ McConnell
Senator Mitch McConnell would make an excellent magician. He has a penchant for disappearing during the toughest moments of a battle and deftly distracting attention to an issue not in contention at the time. During the summer, when conservatives were marshaling support for a unified message of funding the government minus Obamacare, McConnell was completely absent. When cornered by the media to comment on the | Read More »
Dr. Milton Wolf for Senate
In the past six months, Senator Pat Roberts has been a rock ribbed, small government conservative. He has stood with Ted Cruz. He has fought the fight. He’s done in the sixth year of his term everything conservatives have wanted. And that’s pretty unusual because in the last five years Pat Roberts has stood with his leadership even against conservatives. We have seen this before. | Read More »
Why China Will Inherit The Moon.
“In many countries today, moral and ethical norms are being reconsidered. They’re now requiring not only the proper acknowledgment of freedom of conscience, political views and private life, but also the mandatory acknowledgment of the equality of good and evil.”
So in the bizarre, Post-modern, Post-Cold War world, the authoritarian President of the oligarchic glob formerly known as the CCCP just gave us a lot of useful knowledge free of charge. Perhaps it was his way of thanking the NSA for all interesting things that he learned about America from Edward Snowden and Julian Assange. Whether we realize it yet or not, Mr. Putin just explained to us why China can reach the moon, while the United States of America no longer has that level of national will.

Jim Matheson (D, Utah-04) cuts and runs.
He just can’t take it anymore: It has been a tremendous privilege to serve the people of Utah during my time in the United States House of Representatives, but my time in the House should not be the sum total of my service. Today, I am announcing that I will not seek reelection to the House of Representatives. Better to go out on his own | Read More »
The latest offensive in the War on Christmas – you know, the war we’re supposedly not having, according to the people fighting it most energetically – began as a blog post at Slate, which argued that the traditional white Santa Claus is frightening, alienating, and divisive to non-white children. The solution proposed by the author was to replace Santa with not a Person of Color, but | Read More »
#Obamacare’s expanded Medicaid asset seizure bonanza.
Hey, you had to pass the act to find out what was in it: It wasn’t the moonlight, holiday-season euphoria or family pressure that made Sofia Prins and Gary Balhorn, both 62, suddenly decide to get married. It was the fine print. As fine print is wont to do, it had buried itself in a long form — Balhorn’s application for free health insurance through | Read More »
