Mr. Boehner, the House must defund, not delay, Obamacare!
In a display of the type of leadership that earned John Boehner enshrinement in the G.O.P. Hall of Shame—he was our first inductee—the “RINO from Ohio” is about to cave on one of the issues that put him and the Republicans in control of the House of Representatives in 2010. Obamacare.

They must defund Obamacare.

Birfer = Retard.
Occasionally the Left is so pathetic in their hypocritical blindness that they simply step into my wheelhouse and all but yell out “Skeet” as they fly down range. I didn’t even have to yell “Haul.” Don’t blink. Otherwise the newest stupid could whack you right between the eyes. According to The Dallas Morning News, Ted Cruz is one of them. Here’s how freakin’ scary it could get.
That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy — the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag — pull out his Calgary, Alberta, birth certificate and obtain a passport.
You see the Cruz was born in Canada to an American Mother and a Canadian Dad. This automatically gives Senator Cruz two legal options for citizenship. He could personally choose to be American or Canadian. And you won’t even need a birth certificate generator to prove it! Actually, Cruz released it.

A few caveats before writing this entry. One of the biggest things that got me more interested than ever before in national politics was the rise of Barack Obama in the 2008 campaign, particularly the Democratic primaries. Having satiated my desire to determine who this man was and coming away generally dissatisfied, the worst fears of an Obama administration were confirmed almost from the start. | Read More »
On why Rick Santorum isn’t a 2016 frontrunner
Much has been written in recent days on Rick Santorum and why he isn’t the presumptive frontrunner for the GOP’s presidential nod come 2016. As the runner-up in last year’s bout for the nomination, rolling up 11 primary wins and defying the odds with a shoestring campaign operation, the former Pennsylvania senator easily meets the criteria for recent-history GOP nominees. Nixon, Reagan, Bush, Dole, McCain, | Read More »

Ted Cruz and what the GOP establishment can learn from Osama Bin Laden…
In 1975 & 76 the United States was experiencing a crisis of confidence. Unemployment was at 8.5%, our allies in South Vietnam, who 58,000 American servicemen gave their lives to defend, had just been overrun and the reverberations of an OPEC embargo were sending oil prices from $15 a barrel to $100. At the same time Paul Ehrlich was warning about overpopulation and starvation, Newsweek | Read More »

Only saying no to ObamaCare just won’t cut it to win elections, time to aggressively present alternatives
There has been increased support to the idea proposed by Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Marco Rubio and others to defund ObamaCare in order to stop its implementation. While these actions are admirable since this flawed law is proving to be anything but affordable, and its negative effects are reverberating through the economy, there is more crucial role now for the GOP.
