Veto Expected from Obama After Senate Passed Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood

Being pro-life, reading the headline “Senate Votes to End Federal  Funding for Planned Parenthood” was thrilling.  In a world that has so many senseless and crazy things going on, it is great to finally feel like the good guys get to put an “X” in the WIN column.  But, then reality sets in.  I know deep in my heart that even though the Republican majority in the Senate pushed the bill to end the federal funding of Planned Parenthood through, President Obama is not going to just stand by and let Read more […]

Here Comes the Senate Spending Splurge

The coming Senate spending increase is crazy; we should be capping spending rather than spending more. Mitch McConnell promised that there would be more government spending and that seems to be happening at the time I am writing this. The Associated Press documented the Conservatives’ attempt to talk sense to the Senate: The Senate is on track to pass a spending bill to prevent the government from shutting down this week, over the opposition of the most hardline conservative Republicans. Tuesday’s Read more […]

Marco Rubio Casts Deciding Vote for Obamatrade without Reading the Bill

Marco Rubio decided it was his duty to support Obamatrade based on what he thinks (or hopes) is in the law. You may remember that Mark Horne wrote in January, “Republicans Want to Pass Obamatrade to Find Out What’s in Obamatrade.” Basically, people in Congress were defending the bill, promoting the bill, and planning to vote for the bill without having read the text of the bill. And now we get this from The Marshall Report: “Marco Rubio Screwed America, Big Time!” Marco Rubio what Read more […]

Juan Williams Encourages Republican Leaders to Keep Betraying Base

As far as Juan Williams is concerned, the problem is the Tea Party. Juan Williams has written an editorial that makes no sense to me: The late July poll found only 32 percent of voters holding a “favorable impression” of the GOP and 60 percent taking an “unfavorable view.” An early July Gallup poll also finds the Republican Party struggling for its footing on a steep downward slope, with only a 35 percent approval rating. The biggest surprise is Pew’s finding that the slide in GOP Read more […]

Senate Pushing Campus Rape Hysteria and No Due Process

Campus rape hysteria is going to be pumped up to justify a law that pretends to address the “crisis” but doesn’t allow due process for the accused. With Rolling Stone publicly crashing and burning on a faux campus rape story that was set up by an Obama Administration advisor, you would think that Lamar Alexander would be more careful. But he seems just fine pushing campus rape hysteria. The Daily Caller reports, “Senate Plans One-Sided Sexual Assault Panel.” The U.S. Senate is planning Read more […]

Our Hope is in God, Wouldn’t You Agree, Senator Cruz?

Despite being founded on the principle of limited, enumerated powers derived from the will of the people and subject to the transcendental Will of the Creator God, the current government in Washington D.C. is now a corrupt corporation acting as an organized criminal enterprise. Departing from its roots, wherein it acknowledged the God of the Bible as the Creator and Lawgiver, it has become Godless and grasping and now has its tentacles in virtually every aspect of our lives. This situation Read more […]

Republican Senators Vote to Keep Obamacare

Republican Senators voted “for repeal” but refused to use the power of the purse, again. From Newser.com: “ObamaCare Repeal Goes Nowhere in Senate.” An ObamaCare repeal vote in the Senate that Ted Cruz predicted would be an “exercise in meaningless political theater” didn’t produce any surprises in a rare Sunday session yesterday. All 92 of the senators that showed up voted along party lines and the measure failed to reach the needed 60 votes, reports Politico, which notes that all 49 Read more […]

Rand Paul’s Best Campaign Ad Is also His Greatest Act as Senator

Rand Paul’s best campaign ad might be saving the American people from the Patriot Act before he is even President! The best part about Rand Paul’s best campaign ad is it doesn’t cost him a penny. He doesn’t have to buy time on television or on the radio or in the newspapers. He gets publicity for free. For example, consider this headline from Politico: “PATRIOT Act on life support after Rand Paul stymies renewal efforts.” The Senate plunged into chaos Saturday as Republicans found themselves Read more […]

Democrats Defeat Obama and Republicans (for Now)

Not only did Democrats defeat Obama, they defended the Senate’s constitutional powers to approve treaties. Yes, I know the headline seems crazy. But that is exactly what happened. Obama and Republican leadership in Congress tried to give the President special powers that would bind the hands of the Senate and the Democrats spoiled their plans. Here’s a Washington Times headline: “Obama after trade deal defeat: This is personal for me.” Minutes after his former Democratic colleagues Read more […]

Mitch McConnell “Working Closely with the White House”

Mitch McConnell promises to make sure that Barack Obama is granted special trade authority to limit the Senate’s oversight. Back in March of 2013 I had to write the loathsome headline: “House Dems Preventing GOP from Giving Arbitrary Unilateral Power to White House?!” I wrote: I hadn’t been paying close attention to the White House push for the Trans Pacific Partnership, mainly because it didn’t really seem possible. After all, the only way for the trade treaty to be negotiated Read more […]

Breitbart.com Shocker: Democrats Control the Senate

The votes don’t lie; despite the Republican victory the Democrats control the Senate. So who does Mitch McConnell work for? This is one of the most profound pieces of news analysis I have seen on exactly what the massive Republican victory has meant for the Senate. What did you win by voting for Republicans? You won the ability to pass laws that are supported by a majority of the remaining Democrats. Why? Were you expecting something more? [W]ith two minor exceptions, every single vote that Read more […]

WH Spokesman Sneers at Senate Authority

The Constitution gives the Senate authority to ratify treaties or not, no matter what Climate-Change-believers think. Arthur Milikh has written a revealing piece at the Daily Signal: “What the Left’s Moments of Condescension Reveal.” Sometimes the left unwittingly throws gems our way. These come in rare moments of exasperation, rather than the usual poise the left displays. The transformation of America, after all, requires quiet, subtle movements, coordinated with high-minded propaganda. Read more […]
