    Conservative Review | 05/04/2017 | Chris Pandolfo
    In case that wasn’t perfectly clear, CQ Roll Call’s April “Capitol Insiders Survey” found that large majorities of Republican staffers on Capitol Hill believe the Freedom Caucus is a “negative force” in the Republican Party. The results are not surprising, but are illustrative of the hostility to true conservatism in the swamp. Survey: Republicans see harm from Freedom Caucus https://t.co/qxs7R7xtGu pic.twitter.com/J1KTKQYow6 — Roll Call (@rollcall) May 4, 2017 Of the 100 self-identified Republicans who responded to the email poll, 71 percent had a negative view of the Freedom Caucus; 22 percent of the GOP respondents had a positive view, while...
  • Drudge Put It Perfectly: Congressional Republicans Flail and Fail

    Observer ^ | 02/17/17 | Brian Darling
    On February 8, 2017, Matt Drudge tweeted, “No Obamacare repeal, tax cuts!” and “Republican party should be sued for fraud. NO discussion of tax cuts now.” Drudge was spot on. This week, Sen. Rand Paul (my former boss, it should be pointed out) stormed out of a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan when he heard talk of keeping Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion intact and creating tax credits. Paul worried these tax credits would be a Republican-created entitlement program. Unfortunately, the leadership and establishment in the Republican party is incompetent. When you compare the accomplishments of President Barack Obama...

    Is the party—the Republican party, that is—over? That's what Joe Scarborough is predicting. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough surmised that "Donald Trump, by the end, will blow apart the Republican party" and that people are "going to look at George W. Bush as the last Republican president." Scarborough depicted Trump as "in a sense, the first independent president." Joe also suggested that Bernie Sanders might have the same party-demolishing impact on the Democrats. View the video here.

    Raleigh, N.C. — In a formal complaint to the Durham County Board of Elections, Thomas Stark, the attorney for the North Carolina Republican Party on Saturday demanded a recount of votes cast on and before Election Day, citing a counting error involving 90,000 ballots. Thomas Stark, general counsel for the GOP and a Durham County voter, filed the protest with the Durham County Board of Elections, alleging malfeasance in regard to the accuracy of the count. In the complaint, Stark says the county used data from potentially corrupt tabulation machines from five early voting sites and one general election precinct....

    Many decisions are made at the president’s desk, but the major political party to which he or she belongs wields significant power over which domestic and international policies are advanced and what becomes law. Here is a summary of the parties’ positions on some of the vital issues facing the country. Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, stated, “We are a two-party system…we may not like it, but that’s a reality. A third party candidate is not going to win. The reality is that one of the candidates representing the two major parties is going to be elected...

    DELAWARE COUNTY, Ind. – The Delaware County Republican Party said vandals struck at their office last week. Someone threw two landscaping bricks through a window on Oct. 8. Signs for Donald Trump and Todd Young were hanging on the window at the time, according to the group’s Facebook page. Officials said it would cost about $1,200 to replace the broken window and said anyone interested in helping cover the cost could donate online. This week, Delaware County Sheriff Ray Dudley said his office has received reports of campaign signs being taken from yards in the Yorktown and Mount Pleasant Township...

    2016: Republican Party ceased to exist as a viable national political organization The 2016 election will be remembered as the year the Republican Party ceased to exist as a viable national political organization. This is the year that an insurgent candidate, Donald Trump, captured the nomination despite the opposition of 16 establishment candidates, their operatives, party leaders, consultants, special interests, major donors and the majority of the “conservative” media.

    Look to Venezuela for your future under Hillary. As it is, under Obama we're almost there. And...Hillary will provide the final solution If ever there was proof that the establishment (aka “leftist”) members of the Republican Party are working with the Clinton Campaign, their faux horror over the Donald Trump male locker-room talk and huffy holier-than-thou departure from supporting him is the kicker…either that or they’ve not been around actual men much. They are the ones dividing and destroying the Republican Party. Not Trump. And, it most certainly seems that all of the GOP’ers (those who had already expressed their...

    Ann Coulter ^ | 09.05.16 | Ann Coulter
    Phyllis Schlafly, the St. Louis-born American intellectual who grew from a shy and beautiful girl to become one of the most influential political activists of the 20th and 21st century, died today, Monday, September 5, 2016 according to Eagle Forum. Schlafly has written or co-written more than 20 books, on military policy, education, legal and social issues. Her first book, “A Choice, Not an Echo,” is credited with winning Barry Goldwater the Republican nomination for president and inspiring the conservative movement that eventually led to Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Her military work was a major factor in Reagan's’ decision to proceed...

    Sometimes it’s hard to imagine that Jonah Goldberg actually lives in America. Reading his ravings one would think he is in a NASA space capsule, floating around the planet, blissfully ignorant of the danger we are facing. Goldberg’s fantasy dreams of a world in which only “pure conservative knights” get to save the country make it more difficult to see the clear and present danger we are in. This is a time for clarity of purpose, not demands for perfection over the serviceable. You need to be addressed directly, Mr. Goldberg, so there can be no ambiguity: Mister Goldberg, given...

    By now CNN knows it made a big mistake by doing a poll immediately after Donald Trump’s acceptance talk the other night. The smug punks at Hillary Clinton’s cheer leading network thought that because THEY hate Trump naturally everyone else does as well. BIG MISTAKE! The puppets of the Democrat Party (as proved by Wikileaks) conducted their poll and then got stuck explaining how 75% of their respondents saw the talk as positive even as media panel members were making fools of themselves attacking it as “dark” and Nixon-like.” While the results were filled with lots of great news for...

    We all claim to hate the “establishment.” And why not? Look at the mess around us. It’s obvious that the folks in charge haven’t done a very good job. But who is the establishment? The term gets tossed around a lot as an insult these days – even by some people who sure appear to be part of it. There’s a lot that can go into being a member. Education, job, philosophy, position, mindset. All matter. But attitude trumps experience. Some of those campaigning against the establishment assume that anyone holding office is a member. That’s a big mistake. Many...

    Let’s make Paul Ryan the new Eric Cantor. Please donate to his challenger Paul Nehlen at http://www.paulnehlen.com/. Ryan’s lies are catching up to him. He is locked in a primary fight that, with your help, he can easily lose. A new poll in his district shows his challenger Paul Nehlen has closed up 30 points in the last six weeks and has Ryan down to 43% support. Nehlen is just 11 points down at 32%. With a huge 25% “undecided” it is very easy to envision the normal 70% of undecided voters who go to a challenger, going to Nehlen...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 7/16/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The not good news for Donald Trump in the latest Rasmussen is that with only a 42/40 lead he is now statistically tied by Hillary Clinton. Aside from that, many of the internals in this report are good for Trump. The 5% of “undecided” voters is good news because so often “Undecideds” go to the challenger and given Hillary Clinton’s years in the public eye, she has to be seen as the “incumbent.” That would put Trump ahead by the margin of error. Trump is now supported by 73% of Republicans which means he will get a rocket boost when...

    A time-lapse video recorded by convention organizers shows the first 36 hours of the arena's transformation — from a few hours after Game 6 ended, to the start of construction. About 250 people will work inside the Q each day to ready the arena for the RNC. The Republican Party typically needs six to eight weeks to convert a space into the RNC convention floor. This year, the GOP only has four weeks — but officials have said they are confident the Q will be ready in time for the convention.

    After a war no one wanted and eight years of the devious and racially divisive Democrat Woodrow Wilson, America was ready for a change and “return to normalcy.” Nevertheless, it took until the tenth ballot at their 1920 nominating convention for Republicans to select Calvin Coolidge as their presidential candidate even though few thought could win. But the plain speaking Coolidge did win and went to work immediately to fix the Democrat mess that had put America in a deep recession that caused the unemployment rate to hit 15%. In just six months of saying ‘No” to new spending and...

    This is a continuation of the list of steps benevolent Republicans took to help the slaves held by Southern Democrats. On January 8, 1867 the Republican Congress had to override Democrat Andrew Johnson’s veto of a bill to give District of Columbia African-Americans the right to vote. The following July it had to override another Johnson veto of another Civil Rights bill designed to help African Americans. When the Republicans began an impeachment trial of Democrat President Johnson in March of 1868, his answer was, “This is a country for white men, and by God, as long as I am...

    We’re long past being surprised by the perfidy of Republican politicians who would rather celebrate the 2016 election of another radical leftist than support Donald Trump. In March, Mitt Romney said Trump was “…unworthy of the office of president of the United States.” This from the 2012 Party nominee who was too submissive to campaign against the treachery of an America-hating, Marxist Muslim and the most dishonest individual to ever occupy the White House. In August of last year, Daily Caller contributor Brian Joondeph wrote of then GOP golden boy Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton: “They both want to grow...
