General Electric announced on Monday that it is closing its long-time Waukesha, Wisconsin plant and moving the operation to a yet-to-be-named and yet-to-be-built facility in Canada because Congress hasn’t reauthorized the controversial Export-Import Bank. The Ex-Im Bank, as it’s called for short, is backed by the federal government and previously underwrote business deals for large American corporations.

New calls for Mitch McConnell to resign
I’m more than happy to bid a fond adieu to Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%, but let’s be serious. The real problem is Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54%. McConnell is afraid of Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 13% and he apparently equates surrendering to Reid with bipartisanship and with governing. Boehner’s failures were legion but, if we | Read More »
Rand Paul PAC ceases operation because Paul is not a libertarian
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 88% looks to be on the verge of being forced out of the 2016 GOP primary field… to the extent that he was ever in it.

What could we do with all that Planned Parenthood money?
What if we stripped away all funding for Planned Parenthood? What if we took that money, kept it tied to women’s health care, and distributed it in a different way?

Harvard Internet Monitor: Bias of Omission in Action
Harvard University, possibly the most overrated institution of learning since the Great Library of Alexandria, has launched a new Internet Monitor Dashboard. They claim that the goal is to drive policy, so it’s not surprising that the dashboard turns out to be an agenda-driven piece of work missing key information.
The shallow defense of Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood makes its first appearance on Capitol Hill today since the string of videos by Center for Medical Progress were released. Predictably, pro-abort harpy Cecile Richards is trying to take a page out of Saul Alinsky’s rulebook and make the videos the issue while evading the actual cause of the hearings: that Planned Parenthood stands in violation IRS regulations and federal law for altering abortions | Read More »
Jeb Bush campaign death watch begins
Jeb Bush’s campaign was always built upon a single principle: use name recognition and family connections to lock up major donors and starve competitors into surrender. In order for that strategy to work you have to at least appear interested in winning the presidency and you have to show that someone might be inclined to vote for you. The Bush campaign, so far, has done neither. | Read More »
The House Should Proceed to the Motion to Vacate the Chair
Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% is sticking it out until the end of October because he wants to be able to help Barack Obama pass his big government agenda. Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% wants to reauthorize the crony capitalist Export-Import Bank. He wants to pass a bloated transportation bill. He wants to fund Planned Parenthood. In short, [mc_name | Read More »

Hollywood is really quite the circus…….freak show. That’s what it is. It’s not the animals or trapeze artists or lion tamers. It’s not even the clown car. No, Hollywood is the freak show.

Congress Should Impeach EPA Head Gina McCarthy – And Then a Whole Bunch of Other Bureaucrats
The national Republican Party is currently in the midst of a slow-motion train wreck. Their presidential primary has amply demonstrated their Base’s profound disaffection. You can call it anger, you can call it delusion – you can call it a tuna fish sandwich.

John Boehner and Kevin McCarthy Engage in Three Card Monty
Three card monty is the card game where the con man shuffles the cards around trying to get you to pick the same card he first showed you. It is a game of distraction, a hustle, and a con. It is what Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% and Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 61% are engaging in right now. House | Read More »
Clinton staff sent classified information to the Clinton Foundation
Quelle surprise! Back in August, when the first Top Secret documents were discovered on Hillary Clinton’s private server, I posted The real email question: Did Hillary Clinton sell US secrets? This was not nutter conspiracy theory stuff (YMMV) but an attempt to understand how, and more importantly why, Top Secret information made its way out of a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, was stripped of its security | Read More »
