Even Liberals Oppose Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein, and Patrick Leahy’s Gun Control Bills!
Several gun ban bills are expected to be debated in the Senate soon, but Senator Harry Reid may have to deal with opposition from moderates. Everyone knows that moderate Democrats (especially those up in 2014) are concerned about voting for this bill. But who would have thought that liberals oppose these gun control bills? The Daily Caller interviewed a leading official of the ACLU who | Read More »
Are House Conservatives Losing their Fighting Spirit? CR Passes.
Last year, articles were written about the fierce and strong conservatives who were unwilling to compromise their values for the satisfaction of the leadership. Conservatives like Tom Graves, Jim Jordan, Steve King, and others were herald as heroes of our movement. That is why today was a shocking disappointment. The Continuing Resolution that passed today failed to defund Obamacare. It included wasteful spending for the Departments of Commerce, Judiciary, | Read More »
Tomorrow: GOP House Will Vote To Pass Wasteful Continuing Resolution!
No rules passed. No debate on rules. No amendments allowed. Tomorrow, the GOP House will likely vote to pass the Continuing Resolution of the Senate. House GOP leadership won’t even allow discussion in opposition to the bill. It will be interesting to see which Spineless Republicans vote to pass this wasteful continuing resolution (or if the GOP leadership will break the Hastart Rule AGAIN!) The | Read More »
Spineless Republicans Show True Colors By Voting “NO” on RSC Budget
While this vote doesn’t and shouldn’t automatically deem somebody a complete RINO, the vote today was disappointing as 118 Republicans voted against the RSC Budget which would balance in 4 years (a whole lot better than the Ryan Budget). This was very sad, and while I think the Democrats voting “present” should stop playing games, Republicans must decide whether they truly want to be the | Read More »
The House GOP Gets an F this Week for Cutting Spending!
Only 3 Conservative Representatives Opposed Both Spending Bills (Amash, Massie, and Bridenstine). This week, the House GOP voted on two bills that are well-intentioned: The Skills Act (HR 803) and the Preserving Work Requirements for Welfare Programs Act of 2013 (HR 890). Both bills follow conservative policies: reducing the number of programs and requiring people to be looking for work before they can get welfare. | Read More »
Conservatives MUST Oppose the Rule on the Continuing Resolution
Update 1 (3/5/13 about 5 P.M.) : Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) stated during the Rules Committee that while he likes Rep. Huelskamp and Bridenstine’s attempt to defund Obamacare…he stated that he doesn’t know “if now is the time for this fight”. Question to Mr. Burgess: If not now…when? Today, the House Rules Committee is likely to pass a closed-rule that does not allow votes on | Read More »

Only 21 U.S. Reps Vote Against Wastefully Spending $1 Billion!
Cross Posted from my website: http://llphsecondrevolution.wordpress.com/ Washington D.C. is up to its old tricks again as seen on February 4, 2013. The House voted on two pieces of legislation that are just a small microcosm of the spending and unconstitutional problem in the House of Representatives. The first bill which was voted on, the National Pediatric Research Network Act of 2013, does not have any additional | Read More »
Let Sequestration Happen To Save Our Fiscal State!
Only in Washington D.C. would people pass a bad deal and then fight about how to replace the bad deal. That is essentially what is happening today. The sequester would implement $1.2 trillion in true and immediate spending cuts to be divided equally between defense and domestic programs. Liberals are screaming bloody murder on the cuts to domestic programs, and some RINOs are doing the | Read More »
Urge Conservatives to Write Amendment to Offset Sandy Funds!
I’m encouraging conservative reps to get together and write an amendment to offset the Sandy funds (the $51 billion that will be coming up). For the appropriate parts, they should find wasteful spending and bring the amendment to the floor of the house. Then, they can vote for the amendment. Even if it fails, they have something to back up their vote. A lot of | Read More »
The American Culture Needs a Revival…Strong Families & God-Following America!
First, I express my grief and sympathies to the families who lost loved ones in the shooting in Connecticut. Nothing could be more hideous and heart-breaking than to lose loved ones during the Christmas season. May God be with them and help them during this difficult times. As each of us celebrates Christmas, we must think about those who have loved ones in this tragedy. | Read More »
2014 Top GOP House Primary Targets!
“Let’s face it: we will never cut spending without conservatives on Appropriations. We will never implement a pro-growth flat tax without conservatives on Ways and Means. We will never restore the free market and implement a proper replacement of Obamacare without conservatives on E&C.” —Daniel Horowitz These members are RINOs with some of the lamest scores. They are fiscally irresponsible, voting against spending cuts and | Read More »

A GOP Family endorses Liberal Matheson! VOTE MIA LOVE!
And he wonders why most Republicans never considered his son…. Jon Huntsman Sr. — an industrialist, philanthropist and lifelong Republican — is endorsing Rep. Jim Matheson, calling him a conservative Democrat who “represents our state very well.” The endorsement was announced in a news release Friday afternoon. “The Matheson and Huntsman families have enjoyed three generations of respected association,” Huntsman said in the prepared statement. | Read More »
Jon Tester (D-Montana)…even more liberal than New York Democrats. Vote Rehberg!
http://politicalwire.com/archives/2012/09/23/rehberg_holds_edge_over_tester_in_montana.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+PoliticalWire+%28Political+Wire%29&pos=opolh I know that a lot of conservatives are not huge fans of the moderate Congressman Denny Rehberg, but after a huge week of polling that were not the best, a 3-point lead for Denny Rehberg is wonderful news. Conservatives will probably point to several RINO votes that he has taken, and I will not excuse him for these votes. But let’s review the difference | Read More »
God Bless Senator Paul! End Foreign Aid to Pakistan!
WE ARE BANKRUPT (In case anybody hasn’t noticed). Some Republicans may support sending foreign aid to Pakistan, Egypt, and other nations (by the way…several of them hate us). Some people may say we must stay engaged. We should not be engaged with countries that jail our true allies. Pakistan has jailed a good doctor who helped us catch Osama Bin Laden.

Mike Rounds for South Dakota Senator 2014? Give your thoughts.
Rumors are very high that Former Governor Mike Rounds (R-South Dakota) plans to run for Senate in 2014 for the seat of Senator Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota). He will either run against him or if Senator Johnson’s retires, an open seat. http://siouxcityjournal.com/news/local/e02314b2-6ffc-5802-be1c-14f8a2c85343.html He has announced an exploratory committee: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JbGH8Dm9mM I’m still busy researching on Governor Rounds, whether he meets conservative standards or not. | Read More »
Two Great Floridians for Congress!
Florida will play a critical role in this November’s election. With conservative Connie Mack running against liberal Senator Bill Nelson, House races will be just as important. LLPH is proud to endorse two conservatives for congress today. Florida CD 19: Trey Radel (R) defeated LLPH-endorsed Byron Donalds. But after reading his positions, I am convinced that he will be a | Read More »
Mark Meadows for North Carolina CD 11: A Job Creator
I supported Mark Meadows before the primary, but I realized that LLPH Second Revolution never formally gave an endorsement to this great man. So here is our formal endorsement: His mission statement says it all. Government is too big, too powerful, and too oppressive. It does not create jobs, it hinders the creation of them. South Carolina Freshman Congressman Tim Scott (R-South Carolina 1), a | Read More »

A Letter from Senator Jim Demint: I NEED REINFORCEMENTS!
Fellow Conservatives: If you want to stop the massive growth of our federal government and save America’s future, we must change the United States Senate. Harry Reid and the Democrats control the Senate today and, unfortunately, we still have too many Republicans who lack the courage to fight for our nation’s founding principles. As a Senator who works each day to stop the massive spending, | Read More »
Californians CAN Elect a NEW CONSERVATIVE TO CONGRESS!
Visit my website: http://llphsecondrevolution.wordpress.com California is desperately in need of conservative congressmen and women. There are too many go-along, get-along RINOs from all across the country, but the California delegation is notorious for joining Democrats in passing terrible legislation. One California representative who has followed conservative values is Conservative Hero Representative Tom McClintock (R). Rep. McClintock has endorsed Gregg Imus (http://www.imusforcongress.com/endorsements/tom-mcclintock-endorsement/). Endorsements: Gregg Imus has also been | Read More »
A Conservative Friend In Need: Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa 4)
This year, conservatives have the pleasure of seeing so many conservative incumbents face little or no challenges by the Democrats. Their districts have a plentiful supply of conservatives and tea partiers, and these conservative heroes of ours will be returning to the 113th Congress. Likewise, unfortunately, there are also liberal Republicans in safe GOP districts, and it will take primaries to send them to retirement. | Read More »

Conservative Businessman Tom Smith (R) for Pennsylvania Senator!
Tom Smith (R) is a candidate who doesn’t get as much attention as he should be getting. With more news coverage and promotion, he could increase name recognition and defeat Obama-follower Senator Bob Casey (D-Pennsylvania). As most of you know, LLPH Second Revolution supports Republicans, but we only endorse true conservatives. Tom Smith is one of those true | Read More »
