Guess what state just came into play for Senate control next year?
Dirty Harry has curbed the filibustering powers of the minority on a number of judicial appointments. It still remains very much intact for legislation and Supreme Court nominees, but it’s more limited now. My advice to Dirty Harry is enjoy this new power while you can cause you’re time is ever more so limited in your current post. As we know Dems have a very | Read More »
Dems have swept all statewide offices in VA, but this isn’t another CA (thank God)
As I’m writing this, the AG race is still up in the air with a recount on the way (though Herring the Democrat holds a slight lead over Obenshain). Assuming he does win this out, Dems will possess all 5 statewide offices (including the 2 U.S. Senate seats) for the 1st time since 1969. But I wouldn’t be in celebration for too long cause there’s | Read More »
The only real solution to Obamacare is to repeal it (or at LEAST all federal mandates)
Fred Upton and Mary Landrieu have each bills that require insurance companies to keep insurance policies that were in place before Obamacare passed in 2010. The problem with this concept is that nothing isn’t solved necessarily. Erick Erickson wrote 2 diaries last night and just this today warning Republicans that this is trap that would set in place Landrieu’s reelection. I’m not sure I entirely | Read More »
Endorsement Day: Owen Hill for U.S. Senate in Colorado
I heard that Ken Buck the 2010 GOP nominee is running again so I decided to take a look at the crop. The one who impressed me the most is State Sen. Owen Hill (who famously called a bill “horse shit”). Why do I endorse him you may ask? In his time at the State Senate he has a proven pro-liberty record in particular standing | Read More »
Obamacare: A National Joke
Back on Wednesday night (as everybody already knows), Obamacare was mocked by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley at the CMAs. I first found out about it on twitter and show it on YouTube. I must say I loved it. The audience there was laughing at it hard and loving it. Rush Limbaugh was praising it yesterday and described Obamacare as a national joke. The left | Read More »
A tale of two cities (ironic considering this was part of de Blasio’s campaign)
Just yesterday, New York voted to elect its next mayor Bill de Blasio to succeed outgoing Michael Bloomberg. Say what you will about him, but de Blasio makes Bloomberg look like Milton Friedman (and that’s saying a lot). Bill de Blasio is an out and unabashed communist. He went to the Soviet Union in his college years and he was one of the Sandinistas of | Read More »
The Results of 2013
I’ll just get right to the point. New Jersey: Chris Christie is the first Republican since George H. W. Bush to win over 50% of the vote. He won 60% of the vote and drew big time from all the groups from women, democrats, independents, Hispanics, African-Americans. What should be drawn from this race is to learn how Christie did it and apply that to future | Read More »
What the hell happened with GOPROUD?
I’m very baffled at what they’ve become. This organization was co-founded by Bruce Carroll back in ’09 that was suppose to serve as an alternative to the more left-leaning Log Cabin Republicans. He resigned from the organization earlier this year to consider running for Senate against Lindsey Graham. Though (to my dismay and understanding) decided against saying that he didn’t want his family to go | Read More »
What model should the GOP look toward?
I’m NOT endorsing Chris Christie for 2016 at all. I haven’t much appreciated his comments about libertarianism. And there’s some other things as well like his placing the special election for Lautenberg’s old Senate seat several weeks prior to the general election. But here’s the thing, unlike Cuccinelli in VA, he’s gonna win BIG time tomorrow. He’s projected to win most of the demographic groups | Read More »
If Terry McAuliffe does win it’ll be because of Robert Sarvis splitting the vote
By this point, anything can happen this Tuesday. If Ken Cuccinelli wins that’s cause for celebration. If McAuliffe wins I won’t be surprised cause of that fraud Robert Sarvis on the ballot for no good reason. People will be somewhat depressed if the latter happens, but there is cause for hope. Republicans will maintain control of the House of Delegates all 100 seats of which | Read More »
