If I Were Marco Rubio
Senator Marco Rubio spent the better part of last year joining together with Democrats to make a bipartisan push for amnesty and comprehensive open borders. The message to the third world was clear and unambiguous. We have not learned the mistakes of the past and we will continue granting amnesty because we lack the stomach to leave any illegals behind. Not surprisingly, starting late last | Read More »
Thad Cochran’s campaign reeks of flopsweat
Thad Cochran’s senate campaign is shrinking before our very eyes. Despite burning through millions of dollars and the credibility of the NRSC, the geriatric, though apparently still randy, Cochran finished behind challenger Chris McDaniel. Without the large scale expenditure of funds by go-along-get-along groups like the Chamber of Commerce and Haley Barbour’s “conservative” PAC and scurrilous attacks from the NRSC and the clownish Brad Dayspring | Read More »
Pitt Cue Co. — The Cookbook
I think I have finally arrived. I get a lot of political books to review. But I have now reached the point where I am getting cookbooks to review. I would much rather review a cookbook. The first to show up in the mail is hitting me perfectly where I am in the kitchen at the moment. For those of you who do not know, | Read More »
Pat McKinney for South Carolina Lt. Governor
The primary is just around the corner in South Carolina. If you have not made up your mind who to support, let me suggest Pat McKinney. I mentioned on twitter a while back I was supporting Pat, but then hit a lot of travel and vacation and never got to posting here. I want to make sure you guys in South Carolina know, though, that | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ Slip Out the Back, Jack
I know that serving in the Senate and campaigning against a strong competitor can’t necessarily be compared to any kind of love relationship but for some reason, this song came to mind when reading streiff’s diary about Thad Cochran’s campaign’s unwillingness to realize Thad’s use by date came and went. It’s all getting a bit pitiful but I can actually visualize Cochran talking to his | Read More »
Thad Cochran’s campaign denies he’s a lackwit
On the day of the Mississippi primary election, The Atlantic’s Molly Ball published a profile on septuagenarian Senator Thad Cochran called Thad Cochran, the last of the naïve Republicans. Great piece. I encourage you to read it. It gives a good profile of the pathetic nature of Cochran, his campaign, and his supporters. What is most interesting is the way Ball revealed his severely | Read More »
Obama shows usual sense of class at D-Day ceremonies
If you ever had any doubt we are now being ruled by a classless yobocracy you can stop. Barack Obama couldn’t attend the D-Day ceremonies with something like a sense of dignity. Nope. He has to smack away on a cud of chewing gum (I hope) like he was trying out for the cast of Jersey Shore and then spit it into his hand for | Read More »
Someone didn’t tell Mike Rogers and Devin Nunes the Rules Of Republican Support(TM)
For a while now, the National Republican Senatorial Committee has told conservatives that we risk Republicans losing to Democrats when we pit outsiders against incumbents because we don’t like their politics. However, the NRSC clearly doesn’t communicate with members of the House of Representatives and their cohorts in the NRCC where these rules are concerned, as two GOP representatives are fundraising again one of their | Read More »
The Chamber Of Commerce, National Right To Life, & The National Rifle Association Are Waging War On Conservatives
[promoted from the diaries -- streiff] Most Republicans prefer to vote for the most conservative candidates in elections. Lets face it, nobody is inspired by moderation, compromise, and beltway-style politicking. Yet somehow establishment Republicans continue to get elected. One of the reasons is their money advantage. Another is the apathy of ignorant voters who perform the “civic duty” they learned about in school by dutifully | Read More »
Cook Political Report shifts California-26 from Lean D to Toss-up.
This is fallout from last Tuesday’s California primary: freshman Democrat Julia Brownley got 46% of the vote to Republican Jeff Gorell‘s 44%. What should probably worry Brownley more is that the combined total percentage of Republican votes was over 50%. It was generally not a great night for California’s Democratic candidates: In CA-07 incumbent freshman Democrat Ami Bera is likewise dealing with an environment where Republicans got | Read More »
Konni Burton and the Texas GOP Convention
In addition to sitting down with Gov. Perry and Rep. Scott Turner, I was also graced with the opportunity to interview a State Senate candidate named Konni Burton. Konni has been a grassroots activist for years and now is running to take the Senate seat held by Wendy Davis.

Lindsey Graham, Impeachment and Tea Party Conversion
Lindsay Graham surprised a lot of us earlier in the week when he said that if Obama persists in releasing Taliban, and presumably al Qaeda, prisoners in contravention of the law then many in the GOP would push for impeachment: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned Wednesday that Republican lawmakers would call for President Obama’s impeachment if he released more prisoners from Guantanamo Bay without congressional | Read More »
Rep. Scott Turner and the Texas GOP Convention.
Texas State Representative Scott Turner, of House District 33, who is running to become the Texas Speaker of the House, sat down with me for a short interview today. Rep. Turner laid out his vision of leadership for the Texas legislature, something Turner refers to often as servant leadership. As we spoke, it was clear that Turner has a passion for the state of Texas | Read More »
Obama declined to trade cash for Bergdahl
Just about every hour a new revelation is made about the facts and circumstances of the terrorist-leader-for-deserter swap engineered by our commander in chief. We’ve known for a while that Barack Obama had agitated for the release of these five particular prisoners since 2011, I don’t know if they are distant relatives or what. Now FoxNews is reporting that that there were active negotiations for | Read More »
Evil Personified: Boko Haram Uses Fake “Preachers” to Gun Down Dozens
The jihadist militant group Boko Haram in northern Nigeria reportedly orchestrated a deadly attack on presumably Christian villagers, pretending to be “preachers” before massacring 45 congregants near a local church.
There is only one word to describe this systematic, inhumane and diabolically disturbed extermination of innocent human life . . .
