    Sources inside the Senate tell me that the Republican Conference is scared to death of the tactics of Senators Lee, Cruz and Paul – that it is supposedly putting them in a tough spot. Several of the Republicans are using the Manchin-Toomey compromise plan as an excuse to cave on the gun filibuster. They claim that Senators Lee, Cruz, and Paul are running ahead of the conference in their insistence on a filibuster. What they fail to see is that the cloture vote is the vote to stop the gun legislation from passage. Several Republican Senators intend to vote against...

    Is it time for conservatives to dump the GOP? Mark Tapscott (archive)August 28, 2005 Thanks to the incredible expansion of federal entitlements, regulations and pork spending sanctioned by the GOP leadership in Congress since 2001, there is virtually no chance that Big Government is going to be shrunk even a little any time soon. And since there is no sign the folks running Congress are willing to change course, why shouldn’t conservatives dump the GOP? Now, all you party loyalists who started gasping while reading that last sentence can take a deep breath. I’m not saying we should just up...

    Bush leans toward guest visas for workers GOP caught between business, conservatives on illegal immigrants By RON FOURNIERAssociated Press PHOENIX - Struggling to pacify his party's warring wings, President Bush is moving toward allowing illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. before February 2004 to qualify for guest-worker visas. People smuggled in after then would be deported. State leaders in Arizona and New Mexico have stepped up pressure on the Bush administration and the Republican-led Congress to better police U.S. borders and deal with an estimated 10 million people who are living in the country illegally."They're trying to split the...

    Last night, Minutemen supporters gathered privately at the Women's Civic Club of Garden Grove (in O.C.) to hear a discussion lead by James Gilchrist, the founder of the Minutemen Project. About 300 protestors, charging that the Minutemen are a racist group, gathered outside to protest the meeting. When the Minutemen supporters tried to leave the event, at least two of their cars were attacked by dozens of protestors. The protestors hit the vehicles with placards and other objects until one of the drivers gunned his car to get away from the crowd. He was arrested, though I'm not sure what...
  • The Seven RINOs Need to go

    On May 23, 2005, seven of our own Republicans broke with their leaders - and their country - by agreeing to a judicial compromise with the Democrats in the U.S. Senate. While this agreement will likely mean a much-deserved up-or-down vote for three of our judges, it puts in continued limo the fate of seven more of President Bush's nominees. We at GOPNation - as are most conservatives around the country - are furious at these "Republicans" and wish for their eventual defeat in their next election. These "RINOs" sealed their fates by compromising with the enemy, and for this,...

    Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid is quietly talking to the Senate's chief Republican about confirming at least two of President Bush's blocked judicial nominees but only as part of a compromise that would require the GOP to end its threat to eliminate judicial filibusters, officials say. Reid also wants a concession from Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, officials said speaking on condition of anonymity: the replacement of a third Michigan nominee with one approved by that state's two Democratic senators. At the same time, these officials say Reid remains opposed to four conservative candidates for other appellate circuits, Priscilla Owen,...
