What I Saw During Our Vote To Secure The Border
July 31, 2014, the House decided to stay in DC and work. The Senate had already left town for their August recess. The President held a press conference to let the world know that in his opinion, he found dealing with Congress untenable and the body was dysfunctional because they could not pass a bill to send to him to do what he wanted done— | Read More »
John McCain on the Decline & Fall of the United States Senate
The Senate is in a bad way these days. Not that the Presidency and the House are functioning all that well, but under the leadership of Harry Reid since January 2007, the U.S. Senate has reached levels of dysfunction unparalleled in its history, and presided over eight years of economic stagnation and bitterly polarized and increasingly petty and juvenile politics. Reid has ruined the Senate’s | Read More »
Obama & Reid to Israel: Show Restraint While We Fund Hamas
With the escalation of violence in Israel, now is the time to cut off aid to the Palestinian Authority, which is allied with Hamas in a “unity government.” Senator Rand Paul has a bill that would do just that. And at the beginning of the month, he again proposed his bill be swiftly passed while condemning Obama for asking Israel to show restraint in defense | Read More »

The war on religious faith continues
There probably hasn’t been a Supreme Court decision since Bush v. Gore, and definitely since Citizens United, that has been as maligned and mischaracterized as the Hobby Lobby case. Those opposing the decision are crying Armageddon! as though the proverbial gerbil of Religious Freedom was seeking a source light in the alimentary canal of the secular left. In the immediate aftermath of Hobby Lobby, the | Read More »

@NRSC shoots self in foot and complains about the pain
It would be refreshing if the latte-Machiavellis at the NRSC would forget about playing political chess and do something they are really good at: sitting in the corner, making motorboat noises and befouling themselves. The best example of this, of course, comes from Mississippi where those who allege to be the GOP Senate campaign masterminds have been trying to haul the doddering, semi-lucid porkmeister, Thad | Read More »
Harry Reid’s Koch Obsession
Perhaps the most amusing political news these days is Harry Reid’s obsession with Americans for Prosperity and, more significantly, the Koch brothers. Barely a day goes by without Reid making a television appearance, a magazine interview, or a speech on the Senate floor lambasting the Koch brothers. To hear Harry Reid talk, the Republican Party is nothing short of a marionette puppet with the Kochs | Read More »
Steve King Takes on Senate Girly Men
Senator Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer have taken it upon themselves to single out Rep. Steve King on the floor of the Senate for having the courage to stand for We the People against open borders. As we noted yesterday, the party has refused to defend him, and top NRSC aides are involved in an ad campaign against him. Well, when nobody in the party | Read More »
Addled Harry Reid advocates amending the Constitution to restrict free speech
Under ordinary circumstances, one would think Harry Reid was simply playing to the <90 IQ voters who make up the Democrat base. But with more and more people openly questioning his lucidity, one never knows. Unsatisfied with the Supreme Court’s rulings on political speech, and in the throes of a Koch brothers monomania, Reid has signed onto a proposal to amend the Constitution to allow | Read More »
Boko Haram reveals motives behind kidnapping
While the the Obama administration has been taking some flak for its reliance on hashtag diplomacy as the primary means for dealing with serious international situations, the recent #bringbackourgirls campaign appears to be showing some results. In an just released video, Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram, has announced to the world their true motivations for this heinous act along with their conditions for | Read More »

The curse of self-interest
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) was interrupted in the middle of his latest deranged rant against the Koch Brothers – law-abiding private citizens whose destruction is apparently the sole reason for the Democrat Party’s existence – and asked why he doesn’t direct similar calumny at Sheldon Adelson, another rich Republican donor, who is indisputably more influential in Republican circles than the Kochs are.
