    Getting named to Salon’s list of The 25 Conservatives Actually Worth Following On Twitter is either a grievous insult or a certification that you suck. Salon is saying that you’re not a carrier of a hardcore conservative contagion, and that the liberal establishment doesn’t need to worry. At best, Salon thinks you’re no threat. At worst, it considers you a fellow traveler. And some of these selectees really are straight-up Fredocons.You see the same thing with the True Conservative line-up at the New York Times. That’s where you find the king of creased-slacks lib-licking, David Brooks, in a perpetual tizzy...

    Commentary: Welcome to the dysfunction of Illinois government Diana Sroka Rickert I walked into the Thompson Center on my first day, not knowing what to expect. In many ways, my new workplace was like any other large organization: big building, thousands of people and plenty of broken computers. Except this building is dilapidated, many of the employees are political hires and the computers will never be repaired, ever. And it’s all paid for by you, Illinois taxpayers. “Welcome to state government,” said a new colleague, as we boarded the elevator for the 16th floor. This summer I got to see...
  • Illinois Republican Governor Signs in New Abortion Bill

    Governor Bruce Rauner was already in a difficult position being a Republican Governor in a state that is massively blue, but his decision to sign into law HB40 which will expand public funding for abortion, including Medicaid recipients might just be political suicide. Given that Rauner, back in April, promised that he would veto the bill, support from Conservatives is fast draining away from him. Conservative Republican state Rep. David McSweeney launched an immediate attack on the Governor, saying: “Bruce Rauner is a failed governor who continues to lie to the people of the state of Illinois. He told us...
  • To Limit Gerrymandering, Supreme Court Needs Just to Reaffirm Equal Population Requirement

    Next week, the Supreme Court will hear oral argument in Gill v. Whitford, a case challenging Wisconsin's legislative district lines as an unconstitutional Republican gerrymander. It's attracted attention because many high-minded commentators have blamed partisan gerrymandering for today's highly polarized politics -- and for the fact that Republicans have won majorities in 67 of the 98 houses of state legislatures and in 10 of the past 12 elections in the U.S. House of Representatives. But as I and others have argued, gerrymandering has contributed only marginally to Republican success. More important is demographic clustering. Democratic voters are heavily clustered in...

    The Fresno Republican Party’s annual fundraising dinner, which this year features controversial former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has been moved to Sunnyside Events in southeast Fresno. The event had previously been scheduled for a 5:30 p.m. start Sept. 29 at TorNino’s Banquets on Blackstone Avenue near Shaw Avenue. Prior to that, it was scheduled for Sept. 23 at TorNino’s. Fresno County Republican Party Chairman Fred Vanderhoof said his organization decided to move the event because of concerns about tie-ups on a main traffic hub such as the area near TorNino’s. Sunnyside Events, at 5707 E. Balch Ave. in Fresno,...

    Alabama voters today pick a Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate, choosing between former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore and Sen. Luther Strange. Today's winner advances to face Democratic nominee Doug Jones on Dec. 12 to fill the Senate seat Jeff Sessions left to become President Trump's attorney general. Strange has held the seat on an interim basis since accepting the appointment by former Gov. Robert Bentley in February.

    The stunning defeat of President Trump’s chosen Senate candidate in Alabama on Tuesday amounted to a political lightning strike — setting the stage for a worsening Republican civil war that could have profound effects on next year’s midterm elections and undermine Trump’s clout with his core voters. It marked yet another humiliation for the Washington-based Republican establishment, particularly Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), whose allies pumped millions of dollars into the race to prop up Strange and reassure his colleagues that they could survive the Trump era. “If you’re an incumbent, you have to assume the wind is against...

    ...The Republican Party once was the party of conservatives. It still is the only place any conservative can be elected in today’s political world. So far. Unfortunately, the party of Reagan has disappeared. Trump did not make them disappear, but his improbable run, and win, has revealed who the party really is. And it ain’t pretty. It’s been apparent for a while that they are the stupid party. But I never thought they were this stupid. It’s been apparent for a long time they had Stockholm Syndrome. Captured by the left, they have been cowed into being spineless mushes afraid...

    Having refused to repeal Obamacare, the Republican Party is dead, as was the Whig Party in 1854 after it colluded in the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act which opened these territories to slavery. Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress as well as control of legislatures and governorships in 26 states veil the fact that, in 2017, there are no longer reasons to vote Republican any more than there were to vote Whig after 1854. The Republican Party’s successes in recent electoral cycles were due to the American people’s desire not to be governed by a ruling class, headed by...

    The congressional calendar is jammed. There are serious doubts that there's room for all the legislation that's lined up waiting for a vote. ... There are just 12 days before the end of September, when the House and Senate are in session together. In those 12 days, Congress has to pass a budget and a debt ceiling extension. That's surely very difficult. Now throw in the Republican Party walking away from the Republican president. That is what's happening. And the chances of getting a budget, debt ceiling, health care, tax cuts and infrastructure done this year are surely slim and...

    ‘Repeal and Replace Obamacare’ never stood a chance of getting past Mitch "The Blocker" McConnell and is probably doomed this fall in spite of any further praiseworthy Trumpian efforts to help America's middle class escape a law which destroys our health and drains our bank accounts. After all, the Senate Majority Leader has some very close ties to special interest healthcare dollars. Add to that the fact that his wife, new US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao McConnell, “…received $50,000 in 2015 for a five-minute speech to the political wing of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, previously called a cult-like terrorist group" by the...

    Is anyone else beginning to get an uneasy feeling that Arizona Senator Jeff Flake if planning to switch parties? I think there must be something more that his dismal showing in favorability polls to explain his recent extreme anti-Trump and anti-GOP remarks and actions. And I don't think his stupid book explains his actions either. If he is thinking of switching, do you think he might have two other Republican (RINO) Senators who would simultaneously defect to give Schumer control of the Senate? Hopefully, time will show this was needless worries. But I don't know -- the antiTrumpers have been...

A retired attorney in Virginia Beach is so incensed that Republicans couldn't repeal the Affordable Care Act he's suing to get political donations back, accusing the GOP of fraud and racketeering. Bob Heghmann, 70, filed a lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court saying the national and Virginia Republican parties and some GOP leaders raised millions of dollars in campaign funds while knowing they weren't going to be able to overturn the ACA, also known as Obamacare.

    (Washington, D.C.) – Today, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) named former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) its July 2017 Porker of the Month for advocating for taxpayer-funded housing for members of Congress.During an interview with The Hill on June 26, 2017, then-Rep. Chaffetz said, “I really do believe Congress would be much better served if there was a housing allowance for members of Congress.” He admitted that the current political climate made such a proposal legislatively arduous, but claimed that, “A $2,500 housing allowance would be appropriate and a real help to have at least a decent quality of life in...

    Our federal government is no longer workable. The Congress, Senate & House are filled with political cronies, full of themselves with ego, greed, power, ill will, hate, envy and little concern or care for the average American or, fact, the country itself. Come the 2018 Mid Term Elections, the American voter, less the cheating Democrat fraud and illegal voters, should dispatch both Democrats and Republican Establishment types to an acid filled cesspool where they all belong. Make America Free Again. Politically destroy the entire Democrat Party which, by the way, is lost at sea and is as crooked as Al...

    What do you do when you realize you may be too conservative to be a libertarian? Austin Petersen, best known for running for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination in 2016, is giving the Republican Party a try. Advocating “pro-life and pro-Constitution” values, Petersen is challenging incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill in Missouri for the 2018 midterm elections. His decision came after thousands of phone calls reaching out directly to his supporters, who overwhelmingly urged him to run as a Republican, Petersen explained on Wednesday’s “Pat & Stu.” “I decided to take their advice because they’re the ones who are putting all...
