Real National Security: Justin Amash Guards against Boehner

Justin Amash shows that he believes that vigilance is the price of liberty. This story from the Hill seems normal and believable. But it really demonstrates how debauched our political situation has become. Justin Amash is keeping constant watch to prevent any tricks on the part of John Boehner or other leaders to extend the Patriot Act by stealth and surprise! Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) doesn’t seem to trust that House leaders won’t try to sneak through a short-term renewal of expiring Read more […]

Republicans Adding the Spend to Tax and Spend

Forget about tax and spend Liberals; tax and spend Republicans are the people we need to worry about now. I’ve written about how the new Republicans that conservatives put in Congress are going to raise taxes. Even back before the November election, Politico.com claimed that Republicans were ditching “tax cutting mania.” Sure enough, in early January Republicans were openly talking about raising the Federal gas tax—something that I can safely say no one voted them into office to do. But Read more […]

Justin Amash v. Marco Rubio on Patriot Act

Marco Rubio wants the Patriot Act to be extended forever. Justin Amash strongly disagrees. This issue is important both because Rubio is currently a Senator and also because he might be a presidential candidate. It is also important because Marco Rubio arguably won his office by identifying successfully (and now inexplicably) as a Tea Party candidate. Marco Rubio has not only defended the Patriot Act but has advocated that its mass-surveillance directives be made permanent law rather than Read more […]

Rand Paul and Ted Cruz Are Not Opposites

In his latest editorial, Howard Kurtz portrays Rand Paul and Ted Cruz as completely different alternatives for the Republican Party: “Collision Course: How Rand Paul and Ted Cruz would remake the Republicans.” Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com There is more at stake today than who controls the Senate. There’s also the question of who controls the argument heading into 2016. Ted Cruz wants to push the Republican brand to the right. Rand Paul wants to completely revamp the brand. The Read more […]

The Republican Establishment Fought Justin Amash and Justin Amash Won!

I reported about Justin Amash last November: “GOP Corruptocrats Working to Oust Justin Amash.” Justin Amash is the standard bearer for Ron Paul Republicanism in the House of Representatives. He almost got the NSA’s illegal spy program defunded. He stands against big government. He joined the effort to defund Obamacare, something we now all see was worth attempting at any cost. So naturally the deep pockets of the Republican Party are out to destroy him. Now it is time for an update. War Read more […]

John Boehner: I “Absolutely” Trust Obama

In Speaker John Boehner’s interview with ABC News where he conceded to the host that he agrees with President Barack Obama on the issue of debt, saying that we really don’t have any immediate debt crisis, John Boehner also stated unequivocally that he trusted Barack Obama. Boehner said that he and President Obama have a great relationship and that they’re “open with each other, honest with each other,” but that they’re trying to “bridge some big differences.” The host asked him point Read more […]

Boehner’s Betrayal of the Tea Party

Today, House Speaker Boehner further marginalized Ron Paul. Perhaps this confuses you since Ron Paul retired. He did indeed. But he had also endorsed candidates for Congress. While the liberal, establishment candidate Romney was defeated, these candidates won. Thus, back on November 7, the New American reported that “The Ron Paul Revolution moves to Congress.” Here are a few pertinent quotations: “Justin Amash, a Michigan freshman congressman (3rd District), was reelected 58-39 percent Read more […]
