    In a move that's likely to cause heartburn for the GOP establishment and Democratic Party, a band of hardcore conservative politicos have grouped together to form a new scorecard and rating system for members of Congress. FreedomWorks’ director of minority outreach Deneen Borelli; Daniel Horowitz, a conservative who worked for Madison Project and has written columns for Breitbart News and RedState; former U.S. Senate Steering committee policy adviser Gaston Mooney; and conservative communications staffer Rachel Semmel, among others, have just launched the “Conservative Review.” “I am excited to be a part of an organization that pulls back the curtain on...

    California is morphing into a warmer Detroit with beaches and pneumatic blondes, but it doesn't have to be this way. Only liberalism could've taken the most beautiful, most hard-working, most entrepreneurial state in the union and turned it into a shabby province composed of deadbeat Oliver Twists holding up their bowls demanding more. Now that might be changing. It might be changing because the GOP, believe it or not, may be learning to win again. It used to know how. I remember when California produced leaders like Ronald Reagan. Today, conservative Californians breathed a sigh of relief that they were...

    Liberals are extremely angry over a new ad called "Dating Profile," which portrays a woman talking about a relationship now in a downward spiral, despite promises to the contrary. The woman, it turns out, is talking about President Obama and his broken promises and failed policies... The hard hitting ad has liberals in a tizzy, with extremely hateful messages posted about it all over the video and Twitter. Somehow, of course, the ad was seen as racist, as user cos2mwiz explained: There's also this extremely weird, possible projection-filled comment about a passionless relationship: ...The rage is incredible in some of...

    The story of Andrew Mellon (1855-1937) is lab in American conservatism. There are at least three reasons: (1) his business success, (2) his political acumen, and (3) his philanthropy. Business Success. He became one of the richest men in America through successful business ventures across numerous industries. His businesses gave jobs to tens of thousands of Americans while advancing the economy. Political Success. He served as Secretary of the Treasury from 1921 to 1932 under three presidents: Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover. Working with President Coolidge, Mellon was instrumental in reviving the country from the depression of 1920-21. Unlike the later...

    Sweden's Social Democrats and their centre-left allies are poised to return to power after defeating the centre-right government, in a general election that also resulted in strong gains for the anti-immigration party. With all but two voting districts tallied on Sunday, the Social Democrat-led bloc won 43.8 percent of the vote while the ruling centre-right coalition, led by the Moderate Party, gained 39.3 percent. But the anti-immigration far-right Sweden Democrats were celebrating large gains as the party won 12.9 percent of votes cast - more than doubling the 5.7 percent of votes won in the 2010 election. "Sweden friends, party...

    There’s been so much talk of late about the transformation of the Republican Party over the course of the last few decades that it is easy to become inured to reports of ideologically extreme new arrivals in the party’s ranks. After a while, the latest pronouncements of Michele Bachmann or Steve King fail to impress. But what is going on right now in Wisconsin’s Sixth Congressional District is truly historic, and demands more attention. The district, northwest of Milwaukee, has been represented for nearly half a century by only two men, both of whom were standard bearers for a brand...

    Jeff Bell was a reform conservative before it was cool. He’s spent his career arguing with a risk-averse Republican establishment. He pushed Ronald Reagan to embrace the supply-side doctrine of tax cuts before deficit reduction. He spent the 1990s warning the GOP that its tax policy favored investment capital over human capital, corporate interests over working families. He designed a family-friendly flat tax that reduced payroll taxes, increased the child tax credit, taxed capital gains and regular income at the same rate, and ended business expensing. Payroll tax relief and a generous child tax credit are elements of today’s reform...

Last week, another former governor, Minnesota’s Jesse Ventura won $1.8 million from Kyle’s widow in a defamation suit against Chris Kyle’s estate. This did sit well with Gov. Palin. Palin called Ventura a “jackass” and questioned how a former Navy SEAL like himself would go after a widow and the legacy of an “American hero.” ‘”You turn around and sue, expecting $2 million from a military widow and her fatherless children?

    Weeks after an apparent case of politically motivated Internet censorship at a Connecticut high school, officials are still blaming the incident on technical malfunctions — even though evidence suggests human culpability. On May 27, shortly before his graduation, Andrew Lampart, an 18-year-old senior at Nonnewaug High School in Woodbury, Conn., set out to research gun control on a school computer in order to fulfill an assignment for a basic law course. He found that the website for the National Rifle Association was blocked, while websites supporting gun control remained accessible. Over the next five days, Lampart spent more time on...

    As the November 2014 elections draw closer, Republicans are fixated on taking control of the Senate and Democrats find themselves focused on picking out china patterns for a presumptive Hillary Clinton inaugural ball in 2017, conservatives should consider the fact that a Constitutional Convention is very much within reach in 2015. Once the votes are counted, the Republican Party may just control the needed number of statehouses across the country to invoke the rarely discussed provision set in Article V the US Constitution which requires Congress to call a convention of states to propose amendments. Better still for conservatives, the...

    There was a time not so long ago when the young seemed destined to be liberal forever. Americans in their teens and 20s were to the left of their elders on social issues. They worried more about poverty. They voted strongly Democratic.In retrospect, we refer to this period as the 1960s, and it didn’t last long, let alone forever. Less than a generation after young people were marching for civil rights and against the Vietnam War, they voted overwhelmingly for Ronald Reagan.Today, of course, the young are liberal again, and it seems as if they will be forever.

Insurgent candidate Chris McDaniel Thursday sent a “Notice of Intent to Challenge” to the Cochran campaign, the first step in an attempt to invalidate the election by revealing voting irregularities.

    Easy to forget but hard to ignore, the 64-year-old justice is leaving an indelible mark on the Supreme Court. And giving liberals a lot to complain about. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito enraged liberals twice on Monday, handing down two potentially wide-reaching opinions that weakened Obamacare's contraception mandate and severely undermined public unions. Alito is a reliable member of the Court's conservative flank, though he often earns less attention than his irascible counterpart Antonin Scalia, whose opinions are regularly dotted with sensational rhetorical flourishes that easily seize media attention. Alito is less waffly than either Chief Justice John Roberts or...

He's the liberal GOP incumbent trying to cling to public office by smearing the Marine mom, small-business owner, lawyer and conservative state assemblywoman poised to take his seat next week. Claudia Tenney is as rock-solid of a Republican as they come: pro-life, pro-limited government, pro-Second Amendment, pro-entrepreneur, pro-American worker. As one of New York's top conservative legislators, Tenney has been unafraid to challenge the powers that be in both political parties. As an attorney, she has fought valiantly against cronyism and corruption. She has...

In a 77-page report released on Monday, the House Oversight Committee said, "President Obama's bully pulpit led to the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative tax-exempt applicants." The report also places blame on "congressional Democrats," "Senior White House officials," "and other left-wing political figures and commentators."

    Ideology: A Pew study finds the country more polarized than ever, and naturally Republicans are catching the blame. Truth is, it's Democrats who've lurched to extremes.
