    More Evidence the GOP is Not Serious About Spending

    I have repeatedly bemoaned the Republicans (and Democrats) for not doing enough to cut spending. Sixteen trillion dollars in debt and rising. Trillion dollar deficits. Billions of dollars spent every day. Well, the incredibly resourceful Club for Growth is out with another look at the GOP and Democrats’ commitment to cutting spending this morning, and it isn’t pretty. The Club has compiled a mini-scorecard of | Read More »

    Meet the Micro-Union

    The National Labor Relations Board under Barack Obama has become a totally politicized entity intent on destroying free enterprise and advancing union interests across the nation. One of the NLRB’s latest schemes is to authorize “micro-unions.”Imagine going into a department store. With a micro-union, the shoe department of that department store could unionize. The rest of the store could be union free, except the shoe | Read More »

    The Media’s Little Bubble of Ignorance

    I have just learned that Ed Klein’s The Amateur is going to be the number one book on the New York Times Best Sellers List for the fourth consecutive week. Like David Limbaugh’s The Great Destroyer, Klein’s book is published by Regnery, our sister company within the Eagle Publishing, Inc. family.Limbaugh’s book, The Great Destroyer, is going to debut on the New York Times Best | Read More »

    Adding to my Reagan Maxims: My Take on “Reagan Couldn’t Win Today”

    I have not had a chance to write about the Jeb Bush remarks on Ronald Reagan, but I figure I ought to.Full disclosure: I know many of you disagree with me, but I privately and publicly urged Jeb Bush to run for President this year. On most issues, he and I are of like mind and I think he was a tremendously good Governor of | Read More »

    Now Is Not The Time for the Senate GOP to Divide Republicans

    Not a day goes by these days that I don’t hear more about Senator Marco Rubio’s immigration plan and get asked my thoughts on it. The plan is just that — a plan. To my knowledge there is no legislative language yet. But from what I have heard I like the plan with some reservations.I am to the left of many of RedState’s readers when | Read More »

    Juana Summers Says It Was All Just A Joke

    Juana Summers of the Politico gets the clueless reporter award of the day. In her story on swatting she describes it as “an elaborate practical joke.” It’s so funny than more than 80 members of Congress and local authorities in several locations are asking the FBI to get involved.Let me describe what Summers’ calls a practical joke:Someone calls the police posing as me claiming both | Read More »

    David Limbaugh’s The Great Destroyer

    Our sister company within Eagle Publishing, Inc. has published a new book that, even were Regnery not the publisher I’d be seeking out. That’s because it’s author is David Limbaugh, who continues to be one of the most informative and easy to read authors of current events within conservatism.David’s new book is The Great Destroyer and I have been on a mission for two weeks | Read More »

    Remember the Democrat Justices of the Florida Supreme Court During Bush v. Gore?

    Pretty much everyone except the most hard charging partisans have finally conceded that, despite the United States Supreme Court’s involvement in Bush v. Gore, George Bush did win Florida by just over 500 votes in 2000. In fact, in a nonpartisan media backed recount effort, George Bush would have won by every standard demanded, including Al Gore’s standard, except ironically George Bush’s preferred standard. While | Read More »

    The Amateur’s Nominee

    Brett McGurk is another example of just what an amateur Barack Obama is. Today comes news that the Commerce Secretary committed two hit and run crashes after suffering “seizures.” There is no word on what caused the seizures and Johnny Walker was unavailable for comment. (Initial reports were that drugs and alcohol were not involved)Now, there is Brett McGurk. You should read this if you | Read More »
