A Citizen Challenge

A Citizen Challenge

Chances are you haven’t heard (and won’t hear) about this Federal report from the Liberal media. Two days ago the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) released its Annual Audit of the United States Government for fiscal years 2011 – 2012. The government’s own conclusion is this: “… Absent policy changes – the Federal Government continues […]

Mark Sanford to Launch Comeback Bid

Mark Sanford to Launch Comeback Bid

Yes, you read that right. Mark Sanford, the once rising star of South Carolina has announced  his entry in the special congressional election scheduled for April. Sanford, became a household name when, as governor, he disappeared from the state for nearly a week. On his return, it was discovered that the married governor, had left […]

Mullin in Boehner’s Pocket Already?

Mullin in Boehner’s Pocket Already?

Newly elected Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Ok 2) was on KFAQ radio’s Pat Campbell Show on Tuesday Jan. 8 to “explain” his vote for John Boehner as Speaker of the House of Representatives. His explanation of why he voted for Boehner seems to be “business as usual” in Congress. I thought we sent him there to oppose […]

Dodging a Bullet; Congress Works to Avert Milk Spike

Dodging a Bullet; Congress Works to Avert Milk Spike

It appears congress may find enough votes and keep the farm bill alive for another year. Apparently, the angst caused by the idea of $8 per gallon milk over the Christmas family table was enough to motivate bipartisan action within the agriculture committee of both the House and Senate. The current farm bill, passed in […]

What the lobbyists don't want you to know

What the lobbyists don’t want you to know

YouTube Description: Lobbying is a time-honored tradition in the United States, and it provides individuals, communities and private interest groups a powerful tool to directly advocate their beliefs to elected officials. But, as history has shown, this industry is also often vulnerable to corruption at the highest levels – a fact that has led many […]

The Lonely Position of Neutral

The Lonely Position of Neutral

I hate raising taxes.  I find high tax rates immoral.  However, we lost the election.  An increase in revenue is inevitable.  What’s perverse about this whole episode is that if we fall off the cliff – Democrats will get everything they want. They’ll get their tax increases, their revenue, and defense cuts.  They would complete […]

Ellison 'Stands With' Violent Protesters

Ellison ‘Stands With’ Violent Protesters

Hours after a union mob violently attacked a pro-right-to-work group in Lansing, MI, Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison posted to his Facebook page and Twitter feed that he is “proud to stand with working people in Michigan to oppose “Right To Work For Less” legislation. Ellison shared the following photo on his Facebook page courtesy of […]

Welfare State Advocate Spews Inaccuracies on PBS NewsHour

Welfare State Advocate Spews Inaccuracies on PBS NewsHour

The PBS NewHour has yet to invite a hard core conservative on the program to talk about the fiscal cliff.  Last week, they had NYT’s columnist, left-wing economist, and Obama cheerleader – Paul Krugman to detail his view.  Then, they had Sen. Bob Corker ( R-TN), but the December 6 broadcast was the most interesting. […]

Let Obama Leap Off the Fiscal Cliff Alone

Let Obama Leap Off the Fiscal Cliff Alone

The editorial cartoon on the left perfectly summarizes the political situation surrounding fiscal cliff negotiations. The lesson is Republicans will be blamed regardless. CNN and Pew Research Center polls show a majority of the public will blame the GOP if the country goes over the cliff, even if Speaker Boehner fetches coffee for Obama during […]

Speaker Boehner – What Are You Doing Up There?

Speaker Boehner – What Are You Doing Up There?

Is it revenge of the squishy Republicans?  It sure isn’t the reaffirmation of conservatism within the Republican Party.  On December 4, Matthew Boyle at Breitbart reported that the House GOP had begun purging conservatives from various committees.  In a time when Republicans need strong, principled conservatives to thwart the aggressive expansion of the state under Obama, Speaker […]

Obama, GOP Throw Their Dogs In The Ring

Obama, GOP Throw Their Dogs In The Ring

I’m sure a lot of you exuded similar reactions to the president’s laughable fiscal proposal to prevent the nation from going over the cliff.  He asked for $50 billion in additional stimulus and $1.6 trillion in tax hikes “as part of any ‘fiscal cliff’ deal,” according to CNBC.  In all: The plan calls for $1.6 […]

Republicans Will Have to Swallow Tax Hikes

Republicans Will Have to Swallow Tax Hikes

As I’ve said previously, I hate tax increases, but I’ll settle if a 10:1 deal is reached.  Ten dollars of spending cuts, including welfare state cuts, for every one dollar raised in revenue.  It’s a rational deal.  If we can retake the Senate, and maintain our majority in the House; then perhaps we can discuss […]
