House Conservatives Have the Power and Should Depose Speaker John Boehner
The “cromnibus” bill is soon to become law. The majority of House and Senate Republicans conspired with President Obama to fund his executive amnesty. Where do conservatives go from here?

They headed to the edge of the shutdown cliff, willing to shut | Read More »
If the Government Shuts Down, Blame Nancy Pelosi
First of all, it looks like the CRomnibus is in big trouble and that is good news. It seems more likely than not that the bill is going down, which is the best result here. But if the House is not able to get a bill passed that keeps the government running, you can blame no one but for this. Pelosi, after all, brokered the | Read More »

The Democrats Have a Great Point on CRomnibus
So help me God, I have no way to refute the basic point that the Democrats are making about the CRomnibus fight right now. In fact, I might even go so far as to say they are right. Here we have a bill that will kick the funding question almost a full year down the road, increases government spending, funds a wildly unpopular and probably | Read More »
This is not complicated
According to the latest Fox News poll, 68% of Americans are concerned the President has exceeded his constitutional authority in his executive amnesty scheme.

Republican Budget Deal Spits in the Face of Voter Anger
Poll after poll going in to the election showed the same thing about voter attitudes: they disliked the Democrats, they disliked the Republicans as much or more, but they were angry about the way things were being done in Washington and wanted to send a message. The Republicans ran on virtually nothing in the way of an agenda and therefore can claim almost no mandate | Read More »

The Republicans in Congress Hate the American People. Just Like the Democrats.
Republicans ran a campaign in 2014 against the high handed overreach of Barack Obama. Democrats ran a campaign against Republicans accusing them of hating women and shutting down the government. Republicans won. Then and promptly surrendered. They never, despite their campaign rhetoric, had any intention of stopping the President. Boehner and McConnell both agree with the outcome, even if they oppose the means. But they | Read More »

On the budget, John Boehner must learn from Brian Mulroney
It appears likely that John Boehner will cave on the budget, funding the President’s executive orders on illegal immigration through March, and funding the whole rest of the government (including Obamacare) at our current unsustainable deficits through September, 9 months into the new Republican Congress. He’ll say he had no choice, but we know better.
