At the time, our opponents within the party mocked our effort to defund Obamacare as a folly and even asserted that our strategy was distracting from the problems with Obamacare itself | Read More »
Why Primaries Matter
Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who Republicans chose to respond to President Obama’s State of the Union address this year, says Republicans are giving up on Obamacare. They’re going to start tinkering with it instead, thereby setting the stage for it staying around. Once the GOP fixes all the objectionable parts, there’ll be no reason to scrap it, but there’ll also be no funding mechanisms. All the | Read More »
Taking on Iowa
There are five people running for the U.S. Senate in the Republican Primary in Iowa. Four of the five are real contenders and those four met at the Family Leader’s Senate Forum on Friday night. I had the pleasure of moderating the forum. I hate debates and I made that clear to the candidates. The modern American political debate consists of reporters with a liberal | Read More »

Stop Common Core and Eliminate the Department of Education
Common Core will damage America’s public education system even further than the Department of Education already has. Both Common Core and the Department of Education should be eliminated and their powers dissolved to the local and parental level where the Founding Fathers intended them to be.

Tech at Night: More NetMundial dreaming, More Net Neutrality
So a continuing look at the NetMundial meeting to argue why American stewardship of the Internet is bad. It got hijacked by the Net Neutrality folks and the anti-American folks (with NSA as the word the Orwellian sheep are bleating), which tells you all about the orientation of this movement.

Even as Putin calls the Internet a CIA project, Obama wants to hand over the Internet to these guys? Insane. Of course, it’s insane that he’s trying again on Net Neturality, though amusingly some Democrats are complaining this third attempt compromises too much.

Articles Of Impeachment Introduced On Majority Of The Oklahoma Supreme Court

Oklahoma may be on the cusp of addressing that problem. A member of the Oklahoma House drafted a resolution Wednesday seeking the impeachment of state Supreme Court justices who granted a delay of execution to two | Read More »
