Meet the Partisan Union Behind The Partisan Internal Revenue Service
On Thursday, despite the escalating scandal, Barack Obama told reporters that he did not see the need for a special prosecutor, saying “probes by Congress and the Justice Department should be able to figure out who was responsible for improperly targeting tea party groups when they applied for tax-exempt status.”
While that may appease reporters from CNN and the mainstream media for the moment, one must wonder why there shouldn’t be a special prosecutor to look into the wrongdoings of an agency with such vast powers over the American populace. Unless, of course, there is a smoking gun that people within the administration don’t want discovered.

Skynet on the Potomac
Obama’s favorite henchman, David Axelrod, deployed the famed Incompetence Defense on behalf of the embattled President during an MSNBC appearance on Wednesday. That’s the hot new line from Obama apologists: he’s so incredibly inept that he can’t be held responsible for anything his Administration does. He golfs, he raises money, he takes a lot of vacations… there’s not much time left over for management. He learns | Read More »
Hunt for the elusive Tea Party murderer continues
Liberal hopes were dashed with the revelation that the Boston Marathon bombers were a couple of Chechen Muslim immigrants. The Left was so sure they had finally bagged the elusive Tea Party murderer! The bombings occurred in Boston on Tax Day. Surely, at long last, the opportunity to smear libertarians, small-government conservatives, anti-tax crusaders, and the whole hellish tri-corner hat crowd was at hand! ”Two plus two | Read More »

Holding Them Accountable – Richard Shelby Edition
In many states and many places people believe that elections are the only time participation is required in a Democracy. You show up, you vote, you wash your hands of it until they bother you again. Many citizens vote the way many loosely-affiliated Christians trek over to the local church once on Christmas and again on Easter. Check the block. Move on with life. Never mind that you are being robbed blind and governed dishonestly as soon as your back is turned.
Fortunately for us, regrettably for Republican Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama, not all Americans have degenerated into Amerikans. Quite a few people in Alabama found the time and volition to turn away from another riveting episode of SpongeBob. It seems they are engaged in behavior hostile to the continued cavorting of our disingenuous politicians. Fortunately, the GOP rank and file in Alabama did not take kindly to Senator Shelby’s having announced his support of Secretary of Defense nominee and former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel.

Okay, not really. It’s a difficult morning to be sure, but it’s not the end of the world. As Erick wrote early this morning, we’ve really only maintained the status quo. In order to assess the future, we must reassess the past. How did we end up relatively close to where we were four years ago? Much time will be spent pouring over the results. Who | Read More »
Paul Ryan: Radical American
If there’s anything we’ve come to expect from the Obama administration and his media lackeys, it’s demonizing those opposed to his agenda. So it was no surprise when his campaign’s immediate response to Mitt Romney’s Vice Presidential pick of Paul Ryan was to label him “radical”. In the same predictable fashion, Democrats cheered at another chance to play the radical card: “I haven’t been this | Read More »
Ted Cruz Interview at RedState Gathering 2012
From the diaries by Neil… In what is widely being described as one of the TEA Party’s biggest upsets, Ted Cruz became Texas’ Republican nominee for US Senate on Tuesday night. Heavy advantages in name ID, money and institutional support were overcome by grassroots activists, ready to send a fighter to Washington. I’ve known Ted for two years but this weekend at #RSG12 I had | Read More »
In the past twenty-four hours I have gotten a lot of heat from friends over my take on what John Roberts did. What’s done is done and I really could not get all worked up about it because Obamacare in the Courts has been such a distraction. Yet again the GOP expected a court to save them from something they did not like. The GOP | Read More »

In a wide-ranging interview with Bloomberg News, Bush said the following: “Ronald Reagan would have, based on his record of finding accommodation, finding some degree of common ground, similar to my dad, they would have a hard time if you define the Republican | Read More »
Now Bleed Them Dry
Note: This was co-written with my brother, Drew Ryun, president of American Majority Action. This week, America saw what real hope and change actually looks like. The Wisconsin recall fight wasn’t about Republicans and Democrats. It wasn’t about Obama. It was about the power of the majority of taxpayers who stood up against being fleeced by the very public employee union bosses who have put | Read More »
An Earmark by Any Other Name
There’s an enduring rule in all aspects of life that is very applicable to conservatives in politics. Whenever you achieve a rare, hard-fought victory, you do everything possible to ensure that the victory stays intact. The House-adopted earmark ban is one of our biggest achievements over the past decade. As such, we must not reinstate the practice of passing Miscellaneous Tariff Bills (MTBs), which are | Read More »
