Does the GOP have An Obamacare Contingency Plan?

Liberals are saying that Republican lack of interest in an Obamacare contingency plan is some kind of threat. Jonathan Cone’s piece at the Huffington Post yesterday sounded all concerned: “The Real Reason Republicans Don’t Have A Contingency Plan For Obamacare.” If you want to know about the Republican Party’s priorities for health care, pay close attention to what transpired — and what didn’t transpire — on Capitol Hill Tuesday. The House Ways and Means Committee held a session Read more […]

Republicans, Dems Furious that Illegal Spy Program Paused

Rand Paul is learning that hell hath no fury like Republican politicians scorned in their attempt to continue an illegal spy program. The author of the Patriot Act says that the NSA was running an illegal spy program that was never authorized by the legislation. Right now the courts have agreed with him and told the NSA that their bulk data collection is an illegal spy program. That was a significant failure because they should have ruled it was unconstitutional under the Fourth Amendment, but Read more […]

Tea Party Betrayal Is Complete in the GOP Congress

The Republicans are now openly calling for massive spending increases making their Tea Party betrayal obvious to all. It wasn’t that long ago that, when Rand Paul said that we shouldn’t increase spending now in exchange for promises of future spending cuts, he sounded like a Republican. So what is going on? The recent headline from The Hill might as well announce, “The Tea Party betrayal by Republicans is now complete!” What it actually says is: “Washington is ready to spend.” Washington 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, 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 […] 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 […]

The GOP Betrayal of Religious Freedom in Indiana

The Federalist analyzes the GOP betrayal: Indiana is now the most restrictive state in the Union. We have now reached the point where Rick Santorum and a Lesbian couple have more in common on the concept of freedom, including religious freedom, than either have with the Republican governor and Republican legislators of Indiana. It really is nothing less than a GOP betrayal of religious freedom. As the Federalist puts it: “Indiana Is Now The Most Hostile State To Religious Freedom.” In Read more […]

Will Conservatives Listen to Pat Buchanan?

Pat Buchanan has issued a much-needed warning for Republicans, but it also applies to conservatives. On Wednesday, Pat Buchanan published a Jeremiad to the Republican Party at “Will the GOP Kick It Away?” Why, then, would the Republican Party, with a chance to sweep it all in 2016, want to return us to the nightmare days of George W., which caused America to rise up and throw the party out in 2006 and 2008? Do Republicans really believe that America wants a return to the Read more […]

Is Glenn Beck Overreacting against the GOP?

Glenn Beck says he is “done with” the Republican Party. Dylan Byers at posted the headline yesterday: “Glenn Beck ‘done’ with Republican Party.” “I’ve made my decision – I’m out. I’m out of the Republican Party,” Beck said on his radio show. “I am not a Republican; I will not give a dime to the Republican Party. I’m out. I highly recommend – run from the Republican Party. They are not good.” Beck’s apparent frustration lies with the GOP’s inability to defeat Read more […]

The Republican Establishment IS the Homosexual Lobby

The Republican Establishment has been completely sold out to the homosexual agenda. How far back does it go? Where does it lead? Back when Lamar “I would use the army on Congress” Alexander’s Chief of Staff was busted for child porn, I asked if the real history of homosexuals in the Republican Party would ever be fully told. The allegations go back to the years of Reagan and Bush, and were reported by the Conservative newspaper, the Washington Times (the Carter Administration was also implicated). Aside Read more […]

Depressing: GOP Candidates Pandering to Iowa on Ethanol

Trying to win a corn state leads the ugly sight of Republican candidates pandering on a horrible policy that ruins cars and the environment. The gas station nearest my house used to sell pure gasoline (no ethanol) for about 7.5% more than the crud with corn pollution—that’s all they sold in every grade; glorious, pure, superior gasoline with no engine-destroying gunk. Then, the station changed ownership, and went to the garbage everyone else sells. Now… a few stations in the surrounding Read more […]

Will Republicans Raise the Debt Ceiling without a Fight?

Watching Republicans raise the debt ceiling feels like watching them wave a white flag. Is the Republican Establishment’s actual strategy to act like such weak fools that the base will all surrender to the Liberal regime because of the humiliation? The latest in the incidents of Republicans doing nothing to resist the President or further an actual Tea Party agenda is getting ready to approve another raising of the debt ceiling. Matt Welch at writes, “Republicans Poised to Read more […]

Are CPAC Conservatives Stupid Enough to Follow Jeb Bush?

It seems everyone wants Jeb Bush to prove himself by speaking to CPAC Conservatives. The Washington Post makes it seem so reasonable: The last time Jeb Bush spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference, he delivered blunt talk — an unwelcome lecture, in the view of many — about the problems with the Republican Party. “All too often we’re associated with being ‘anti’ everything,” Bush said in 2013. “Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, Read more […]
