    Barack Obama Will Recess Appoint Donald Berwick

    While Congress is on recess, Barack Obama will appoint Donald Berwick to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services or “CMS”.Presidents tend to appoint controversial nominees with recess appointments because they otherwise can’t get the votes. Barack Obama has appointed a number of extremely controversial people via recess appointment when he otherwise hasn’t had the opportunity to name them czars — positions that don’t | Read More »

    Jane Norton: AARP Lobbyist During Hillarycare Fight

    Recently Jane Norton gave an interview to the Colorado Statesman. There is this curious exchange in it: CS: Did you used to work for AARP?JN: I did, I did. CS: What did you do for them?JN: I was — gosh, what was my title? Oh, that was so long ago. I’m sorry, can I get back with you on that? I can’t even remember what | Read More »

    In Congress, July 4, 1776: The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

    When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes | Read More »

    Michael Steele Must Resign

    I have heard Michael Steele’s comments regarding Afghanistan and the President. I have read the RNC’s statement on the matter. The RNC statement is indecipherable in the context of what Michael Steele actually said. The war in Afghanistan is not a war of Barack Obama’s choosing. It is a war of Al Qaeda and the Taliban’s choosing. We responded. Michael Steele must resign. He has | Read More »

    Attention Members of Congress

    The effort to repeal Obamacare continues to gain steam. The King discharge petition, backed by Heritage Action, now has 94 Members on board. But it is still a wonder why it is taking so long for the other Members–both Republican and the Democrats who claim to oppose Obamacare–to sign? Every time these Members vote, they have an opportunity to go and sign on the dotted | Read More »

    A Reader Email on the NRA

    From the mail bag: After reading your post, I wasted 30 minutes waiting on hold to talk to a human at NRA. I finally got a guy – I think he said his name was “Tag” – who was in full defense mode on all the good stuff Harry Reid had done, all his votes, how they gave him a B Grade, how he wrote | Read More »

    More on the NRA’s Harry Reid Endorsement

    I’m getting a lot of emails from people saying the NRA has not endorsed Harry Reid in Nevada.As I said in the original post: no, the NRA has not endorsed Harry Reid. But they are planning to unless we bring pressure to bear on them.But here’s the other thing: Sharron Angle has been a true patriot on 2nd Amendment issues in the Nevada legislature and | Read More »

    Have you donated to Pamela Gorman yet?

    I met with Pamela in Arizona shortly after she’d been to the desert shooting. She and her son are both great shots. And she has a great shot at getting to Congress if we are willing to step up and help her.Give what you can.

    Jane Norton Wants a Pro-Abortion, Tax and Spend Senator as a Mentor

    Jane Norton gave the Colorado Statesman a very eye opening interview.First, she walked back some of the attacks her campaign has been making on Ken Buck.Second, she again couldn’t remember key details to questions and had to rely on Cinamon, though not by name this time.Third, when asked who she wanted as a mentor in the United States Senate, Jane Norton said she wanted a | Read More »

    NRA Now Leans Toward Endorsing Harry Reid

    Multiple sources tell me the National Rifle Association is planning to endorse liberal Harry Reid against pro-gun champion Sharron Angle.Two weeks ago, I told you about the carveout the NRA received in exchange for their support for the DISCLOSE ACT deal.Then this week, RedState broke the story of the “gag order” the NRA issued to members of its Board on the Kagan nomination. Now, I’m | Read More »
