Now can we consider the Pruitt challenge?
Well the GOP leadership is caving yet again. And I sure as hell don’t intend to give them a break until they outright apologize, retire or their @$$e$ are thrown out in a primary. But what Obamacare? The battle shall continue there as well. I’m not buying any bull$hit for a moment that this is gonna be impossible to dismantle. The left says it’s the | Read More »
Endorsement Friday: Liz Cheney for U.S. Senate in WY
This is something new I’ll try to make a regular (or semi-regular) thing every Friday. I’ve made public endorsements on RedState and twitter before, but this will be more sorted out. Today’s endorse goes to Liz Cheney for Wyoming Senate. I make this cause we have too many career politicians in Washington and desperately need more fresh faces. She’s running against incumbent senator Mike Enzi | Read More »
ATTENTION: Jackass Job Approval Is At 37%
Today the AP has released a poll showing Obama’s job approval at 37%. And this was taken after the shutdown was getting into full swing. To the Republicans who think they’re losing this shutdown battle, Obama’s job approval is now on par with Bush’s 2nd term job approval. You have nothing to lose by ruthlessly attacking him the same way the Dems did with Bush. | Read More »
Steve Lonegan for U.S. Senate in NJ
He’s a candidate of solid principle and has a strong track record of cutting taxes, restraining spending and reforming government welfare programs as mayor of Bogota. He’s all opposed to Obamacare. I may also say I proudly support as a libertarian as well. He’s opposed to the Patriot Act, NSA surveillance and is skeptical of an interventionist approach on the world stage. Whenever he’s confronted, | Read More »
Is The Shutdown Hurting The GOP?
Before the shutdown occurred, there were concerns that it would hurt Republicans. And while recent generic house polls show Democrats with a slight lead since the shutdown started, it’s not as bad for the GOP as feared. While the last government shutdown occurred when I was still in diapers, the worst thing that happened for the GOP is that they lost a net of 3 | Read More »
Government Shutdown: Now what?
The government has been in shutdown for nearly 11 hours now as I am writing this (going by eastern time). What should be done now? Try holding firm on defunding or delaying Obamacare. There’s no way Harry Reid will be this stubborn forever and neither will Barack Obama. But you’ve gotta hold firm on principle and fight it out. Also noteworthy is that later this | Read More »
How Oklahoma And Texas Are Leading The Charge Against Obamacare
I don’t think Obamacare is ever gonna settle in regardless what comes out of the showdown in Washington (though it’s preferred strongly to see it defunded or delayed). It’s unpopular, it’s unworkable and hard to understand. I don’t buy the consensus that it’ll become entrenched like other welfare programs traditionally (at least not immediately). So we should be fighting it in every way possible. Obviously | Read More »
The Fight For Liberty Shall Continue
As we know, the cloture has easily passed with the necessary votes (damn to those Republicans who did so). After which the Obamacare defund amendment was stripped on a party line vote and has been sent back to the House. To Speaker Boehner’s credit he has said the House won’t pass a “clean” CR (though I’m not giving him a free pass in the least). | Read More »
As ya’ll already know, I’m a huge Rand Paul fan and even wrote a diary here at RedState endorsing him for 2016. But after this filibuster I’ve turned into a Rand and Ted fan. Paul and Cruz according to Matt Drudge are the faces of the Republican Party. And he is correct 100%. These guys are the real deal and it’s about time somebody start | Read More »
Defund Obamacare yes, but keep several backup plans in store
I’m 100% in favor of defunding Obamacare, but we need to use other avenues in fighting it as well. It seems as though everybody is ready to declare doom if defunding doesn’t happen cause well every welfare program set in place is never dismantled (at least they say). Obamacare seems to me a rare exception to the rule (well sort of). Maybe if it sets | Read More »
