These GOP Representatives think you are idiots UPDATED
One of the classic stunts in Washington is to vote for and against a bill. While Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) made “voting for it before voting against it” famous, he is by no means the only practitioner. Bob Dole was eviscerated because his voting record was replete with instances of him taking both sides on a position. When the House of | Read More »
Texas Files Early Discovery Motion Against Obama
The Texas Attorney General is attuned to the news cycle as the rest of us. This week came word that the Obama Administration had actually begun implementing his executive amnesty plan well before he claimed to. In fact, his administration claimed that the amnesty plan would not be implemented until mid-February. A few days before the start of implementation, a federal judge in Texas issued | Read More »
In King v. Burwell, Liberals Substitute False Confidence for Facts
Any seasoned Supreme Court watcher will tell you that it is impossible to predict with any level of certainty what the Supreme Court will do about anything. Generally speaking, the more confident someone sounds during the course of predicting the outcome of a Supreme Court case, the less confidence you should have in their analysis. This leads directly to the phenomenon we are witnessing now | Read More »
Follow the Money: Clinton Foundation
Many of us know what it’s like to be “dead broke;” some of us know the crushing weight of substantial debt. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have the connections or friends in high places with the financial capabilities of funding our charitable foundations to the tune of $2 billion. The direness of Clinton family’s financial position as they left the White House in 2001 may | Read More »

$0.93 Per Hour Convict Labor “They used inmates? That’s unfortunate.”- Oregon University Vice Chancellor Bob Simonton The radical fringes of American politics can be scary at times, but are a necessary component to our system.

John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%, making Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 16% more powerful | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Tweets A Less Than Credible Response
We now know Hillary Clinton conducted all of her email correspondence via an email domain with a server located in her private resident. The story has been brewing for days. The other day, Clinton spoke at a kid killing conference where a bunch of people who support kid killing creepily talked about bundles of joy. At the kid killing conference, Clinton made no reference to | Read More »
Helen Nianias (@helennianias) Blatantly Distorts Dana Loesch’s Point in the UK’s Independent
I’m not sure if Helen Nianias is intentionally malicious or just mentally defective. Or perhaps I should embrace the healing power of “and.” Either way, she and the UK Independent have blatantly distorted talk radio show host Dana Loesch’s cogent point on civil liberties. They headlined their story on Dana’s comments, “Radio host Dana Loesch says gay people will be stoned to death if Christians | Read More »
Democrats Fighting for Unions and Against the Economy
Across the country, state governments have righted the ship from the brink of numerous fiscal disasters by decreasing the power of unions to coercively force members to join and to collectively bargain on non-salary issues (and thus hide budgetary costs). Within the private sector, the evidence continues to mount that unions are bad for the economy, bad for good employees, and bad for all workers | Read More »
Enough with Benghazi Already
Let me say at the outset that I understand that what happened at the embassy in Benghazi was a tragedy for everyone involved, especially for the families of those who were killed, and I do not want to minimize their loss. I think by now everyone who is paying attention to this scandal likewise understands that Ambassador Stevens and three other people are dead at | Read More »
Enough is Enough: John Boehner Must Go
Allow me to add my voice to that of my RedState colleague Bill S: after the events last week, Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% must step down as Speaker of the House. He has stabbed conservative Republicans in the back too many times, and the votes over funding the Department of Homeland Security, including Obama’s illegal executive amnesty, are merely what has | Read More »

Hillary Clinton’s Sleaze of State
The Ethical Vision of Hillary Clinton (Image Credit: Ed Driscoll) Hillary Clinton violated the professional ethics of her office as Secretary of State. She used a personal email address for official business.
