GOP Credulously Chooses Incremental Conservatism to Combat Perennial Socialism
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”~ Ronald | Read More »
Some Republicans Helped Defeat Anti-Spending Amendments
While the House Republicans have shown more austere leadership than the Senate, they are far from infallible. Ultimately, every Republican will likely support the final version of the CR (Continuing Resolution for FY2011 budget), however, a number of them are silently helping Democrats defeat some additional spending cuts through the amendment process throughout the week. Unfortunately, it is hard to focus the public’s attention on | Read More »
John Cornyn Over Lamar Alexander for Senate Whip
Jon Kyl’s sudden retirement announcement has set off a domino effect on the ambitions of several Senate Republicans. When Senator Kyl retires in 2012, he will be vacating the position of Senate (Majority, most likely) Whip, in addition to his Arizona Senate seat. Conference Chairman Lamar Alexander (RINO, TN), the 3rd ranking member in the GOP leadership, has announced that he will seek the Whip | Read More »
Which Freshmen House Members Are Conservative? Time Will Tell
While the House class of 2010 is regarded as the “Tea Party Congress”, it is quite obvious that not all 87 freshmen Republicans are conservative. All of the bills and resolutions so far have been over fundamental issues and were all supported unanimously by the Republican Conference. Over the next few months, we will see if cracks begin to form in the conservative armor of | Read More »
What The Heck Is Going On?
I’m hearing some disturbing things about some of the people who we of the patriot movement were instrumental in getting elected to office. The whole RINO issue chaps the hell out of my hide to start with. I’m not sure whether it’s because we’re stupid or because we don’t know how to vet our candidates. Or perhaps it’s because these undercover creatures are just so | Read More »
As Social Conservatism Demises, So Does all Conservatism
Despite the triumphant ascendancy of conservatism in our times, many Republicans are impetuously ‘punting on first down’ in the battle for social conservatism. Some prominent GOPers feel that not only is social conservatism not a priority, it is something that should be unconditionally and unilaterally surrendered to the left. There are elected Republicans supporting the repeal of DADT, radical homosexual organizations sponsoring CPAC, and party | Read More »
The 111th RINO Senate Was the Wimpiest of All Time
Al right. That is not precisely the title of the latest headline at Roll Call, but it is close. The actual headline reads, “Reid Set a Filibuster Record”. In other words, thanks to RINOs, Harry Reid became the most successful Majority Leader in terms of killing filibusters through cloture. Keep in mind that the Democrats had 60 seats only for a short time during the | Read More »
First and foremost has got to be the repeal of ‘Obamacare’. All over the nation there are stories of people’s insurance rates going through the roof, as insurance companies are forced to raise their premiums in the face of huge new regulatory demands in the health care legislation. Worse still, one of the largest groups to which Obama sold his bill of goods was our | Read More »
As incredible as it seems to anyone even remotely of conservative mind, we watched the insane race of the 111th Congress to cause as much permanent damage to the country as possible before the lame-duck session ends, or the Halls of Congress empty with members leaving the Capitol to be with family and friends for Christmas and the New Year. We should be grateful for | Read More »
The 13 Republican Putin Poodles
Here are the thirteen Republicans who gratuitously gave Obama his biggest foreign policy victory of his presidency. They pointlessly voted to entrust Putin and Obama with our missile defense, and capitulated to a tyrant during a time when American is exuding weakness throughout the world. All they had to do was hold out for two days and the session would have been over. Not only | Read More »
Another Act of Treachery By Senator Dick Lugar, And the Political Imbalance in the Senate
Richard Lugar has become the leader of the rampaging RINOs. Ever since the November electoral repudiation of liberalism, Lugar has voted for the FDA farm takeover, Amnesty for illegals, and co-sponsored the child nutrition law. Lugar also opposed the moratorium on earmarks. He has also been the chief architect of the near confirmation of the START, unilateral disarmament treaty in the Senate. In fact, he | Read More »
Hey Boehner, What Gives?
First, you hitch a ride on the Tea Party patriot movement, which was just fine by us, because back then you were doing the heavy conservative bit to the hilt. Now it’s come to our attention that a couple of grade-A RINOs have been appointed by Mr Boehner. One is Fred Upton… Does anyone know that name? He’s a Republican… at least that’s what he | Read More »
For Republicans, Elections Have No Consequences.
The GOP won their greatest electoral victory since 1938, but you wouldn’t know it from most of the recent news. Let’s round up some of the GOP’s greatest hits since November 2nd. The House Republican Steering Committee, led by leadership, appointed big government, big liberals Fred Upton as Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, Hal Rogers as Approps Chair, and Spencer Bachus (R- Freddie | Read More »
Taxes To Remain At Present Level.
Obama got rolled. He even sweetened the deal for Conservative Republicans with a proposed 2.5% reduction in withholding for the next year. What’s most important though is that American business can take a deep breath and at least look forward to two years of certainty. Maybe the engine of small business can generate a few jobs. It means that we’ll have this fight to do | Read More »
Let’s At Least Get Our Class Warfare Right
Even liberty-loving, highly doctrinaire conservative tea partying Redstate Republicans like me have dreams of dragging our party into the light on an issue or two.
