    Various media attacking Sarah Palin for eight days after one speech suggests she might be making the establishment nervous as her presence looms over a crowded GOP 2016 field. American Thinker goes into the stinker with latest anti Palin diatribe. Questioning "Walker Mania" isn't forming a circular firing squad against him. It's called basic vetting. What Rush isn't telling you about Walker's record. Low info voters on the right are the reason why conservatives can't have nice things. Why I will face palm the "lesser of the two evils" argument for 2016.

    Sarah Palin rocked the Iowa Freedom Summit 2015 in full force. The speech came hot off the heels of Palin's reveal to the media that she is seriously considering a presidential run in 2016. Palin's speech featured personal stories about experiences in the Hawk Eye State as well as harsh words for Obama and the anti military left. Palin also trolled Hillary Clinton towards the end of her speech. After watching that speech I say, screw the GOP's 2016 deep bench--we want Palin! How do we end up with the GOP baseball team and possibly 20-25 candidates on a debate...

    Since Palin put the GOP on notice yesterday and followed up with a tweet to Marco Rubio about the congratulatory call he received from Barack Obama on his ability to ram an amnesty bill, the usual suspects are jumping on her. Many tweeted a Hot Air article from 2008 that stated she supported a "path to citizenship." On whether or not to deport the millions already here, she said: There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant -there are about 12 million of the illegal immigrants- not only economically is that just an impossibility...

    An economic analysis of what is in spent nuclear fuel. As a nuclear reactor fissions heavy metal U235 and Pu239, the atoms are split into two randomly sized pieces. Many of these fission products are unstable and rapidly decay into other products. After nuclear reactor fuel has cooled in a pool of water for a few years, and then sat in dry cask storage for another 10--30 years, what is it made of? Is it dangerous waste that needs to be isolated from humanity for 100,000 years or is it precious material waiting to be partitioned and sold? The answer...

With an increasingly mobile society and greater use of mail-in and early voting, it becomes harder for officials to prevent voter fraud and guarantee a fair election.

    Although Chief Justice John Roberts this week tragically provided the fifth vote, and the contorted logic, that enabled the Supreme Court to uphold ObamaCare, "We the People" can still repeal it. Here's our five-point plan for doing so. Stop your state from setting up an ObamaCare exchange. Get your state to opt out of the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion. Elect 4 additional pro-repeal Senators, which would give us a pro-repeal majority. Retain and if possible enlarge the existing House majority, which is committed to full repeal. Elect a president who will sign the full repeal bill.
