Too Big To Jail

                    The late, great Lewis Grizzard attended the University of Georgia with a man named “Joe,” where they developed a lifelong friendship.  Joe grew up poor in rural Southwest Georgia.  He was only a boy when he found the body of his dead father who had taken his own life with the family shotgun.  Joe became the man | Read More »

    Even an IRS of Billy Grahams would be Tyrannical

    It is no surprise that the government agency responsible for taxing the rich and funding the liberal management of our lives for the collective, would be a bastion of the  most partisan members of the Democratic Party willing to wield the hammer that is government power for the various factions of the gangster-like mob it has become. Current tax law, or what passes for “law”, | Read More »

    Democrat Senator Baucus: More to come on IRS-gate

    One would think that when a Democratic Senator speaks out about IRS-gate, he’d be covering his own tail. Max Baucus, however, has a newfound reputation for calling a spade a spade, so when he says there’s more and possibly worse revelations about the IRS coming, I tend to sit up and listen. Paul Bedard writes in the Washington Times: Senior Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, who | Read More »

    Why You Should Support Rep. Price’s IRS Bill

    Rep. Tom Price came on my program today to discuss his “Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act.” Why is this important? Because the regulating entity of Obamacare is in trouble for discriminating against, and persecuting, conservatives. Even more unbelievable: The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now runs the | Read More »

    The legitimacy of elections

    The worst possible outcome of the IRS scandal would see it growing large enough to call the legitimacy of the 2012 election into question. Some people reading this might think it’s already reached that point.  Others would say it could never reach that point.  There is a case to be made that the American system would resist such an outcome, in a much broader sense than merely | Read More »

    IRS targeted the Leadership Institute

    I worked at the Leadership Institute in Arlington for a little more than four years; it was my first job out of college and one of the most important times of my career. I learned a tremendous amount about the conservative movement, the nature of coalitions, and how political technology was philosophically neutral. I also learned about character and left with a hero: Morton Blackwell. | Read More »

    Don’t Make it About Barack Obama

    I have to agree with Ben Domenech from the Transom this morning. Republicans will lose if they try to make the IRS scandal about Barack Obama. We are not going to convince a majority of Americans who voted for him that they were wrong. We spent the last four years trying that.As Domenech noted this morning: Here’s the hard thing Republicans have to do if | Read More »

    What will Seal the Deal against Common Core Standards in GA?

    On the Wednesday after Mother’s Day, Governor Nathan Deal (GA-R) seemed to offer mothers, caregivers, and parents of students a belated gift. Deal signed an executive orders statement on Georgia education and Common Core. The Governor appeared to affirm state and local BoE controls over Georgia school standards and curriculum. His May 15th executive order wording seemed a slap down of the notion that his | Read More »

Then Ben and Brad discuss the political opportunities and traps that Republicans face with these brewing scandals.

    Obama’s Worst Week Ever?

    Back in 2007 when a somewhat obscure Senator from Illinois was making noise about running for President, this writer decided to look into this guy. Most of the good information I found was from a website I’ll be damned if I can locate again- WTF Obama.com or something like that. Regardless, a few things emerged from this research. The first was that the birther “controversy” | Read More »

    The Thrill is Gone…and the Wheels Have Come Off (Important Updates)

      When the president loses ”I get a thrill up my leg” Chris Matthews, then the writing is on the wall: this president is toast. I sometimes Lefty lurk on MSNBC to hear what the latest nonsense they are spewing and just happened to watch the 7:00-8:00am hour today. I’m glad I have a DVR because I was so shocked at some of the statements, I had | Read More »

    Where are the ads?

    I had three television shows Wednesday night I just could not miss. The season finale of Arrow (which, if you’re a comic book nerd and haven’t seen it, you’re missing out), Law and Order: SVU and Psych. Judge my taste in shows all you want, but it’s somewhat irrelevant. All that was over at 10 p.m. central standard time. I began writing this post at | Read More »
