    Conservatives lambaste Republican leaders over Planned Parenthood, Export-Import Bank Jon Ward Senior Political Correspondent ‎July‎ ‎29‎, ‎2015 Conservative grassroots anger at Republican leadership in Congress and in the presidential contest has crescendoed in recent days, and the outrage on the right is forcing the GOP to respond. The unrest came to a climax on Monday when conservatives tuning back into the political discussion after the weekend saw that on Sunday, the Senate had failed to take up a bill to eliminate taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. Meanwhile on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., had forced through an amendment...

    The professional hand-wringers are freaking out over Donald Trump's straight talk while displaying abysmal indifference to the deserved targets of Trump's charges. The United States is incinerating, but all they can think about is Trump's heated rhetoric. Trump is resonating because, as a presidential candidate, he is giving public voice to many of the concerns that have Americans beside themselves. Some commentators have called attention to these issues for years, but it's different when a candidate does it, especially a Republican candidate. Democratic candidates have no fear of making controversial statements or even of taking extreme positions, because the liberal...

    A few weeks ago when billionaire Donald Trump made his remarks about the number of violent Mexican criminals sneaking into our country illegally it made the biggest splash of the young campaign season. The reaction was maddeningly predictable from the Washington Uniparty and the media. Both lined up to get their breast beating comments heard on the nightly news shows. The snide remarks came fast and furious to borrow a phrase. Some were even personal with nothing to do with policy. Next came the oh-so learned comments from political experts- like the ones the Republicans hire to help them...

    Townhall.com ^ | July 16, 2015 | Jackie Gingrich Cushman
    The ancient Romans coined the phrase "dog days" based on the period of time that the brightest star (Sirius, the Dog Star) rose and set in conjunction with the sun. The Romans believed that Sirius radiated heat to the Earth, causing the hottest part of the year as it traveled with the sun. The date range for the annual "dog-day" period varies based on the source. The Old Farmer's Almanac refers to the 40-day period that begins July 3 and ends August 11. The 1552 Book of Common Prayer refers to the period from July 6 to August 17. Many...

    Tactics are important. History is replete with examples of superior forces being defeated by smaller armies with a better battle plan. Conservatives lose for the same reason: We have no battle plan. For years conservatives were content to be correct. Socialism doesnt work. Fascism was a horrendous failure. Communism collapsed under its own weight. Each time conservatives were vindicated in their opposition to these failed branches of the progressive ideological tree. But at the end of each battle we made the mistake of assuming the war was over. It wasnt and never will be. Every progressive victory was preceded by...

    What is the Obama administration working towards? There are signs of the past, and what his own words have spoken to as to the future of the United States. There is no moderation in the progressive cabal that runs the country. And with the help of traitorous Republicans, the left is working on the final few steps needed to destroy the cultural and societal basics that have served this country well. The judiciary, thanks to hard leftists and Justice John Roberts, has effectively gutted the Constitution on behalf of social justice, a socialist agenda leading to the destruction of the...

    Under the terms of the Constitution, the president must persuade a two-thirds supermajority of senators to approve any binding agreements he may make with a foreign power. Of course, a president may legitimately make non-binding agreements as permitted under his power to conduct foreign affairs. But to obligate the United States of America to any such agreement, a president must either persuade the Senate to ratify it as a treaty, or persuade the full Congress to pass a law accepting his agreement by ordinary legislation — a bill passed by a majority of both houses and signed into law by...

    In 1854, around one single issueopposition to slaverythe Republican Party was formed. As historian David Barton notes, The Republican agenda was clear, for every platform since its inception had boldly denounced slavery. In fact, when the U. S. Supreme Court delivered the 1857 Dred Scott ruling protecting slavery and declaring that Congress could not prohibit it even in federal territories, the Republican platform strongly condemned that ruling and reaffirmed the right of Congress to ban slavery in the territories. But setting forth an opposite view, the Democrat platform praised the Dred Scott ruling, and the continuation of slavery, and also...

    Is there morality in government? It is expected that our politicians be moral and of good character and integrity. But given the power unlawfully and unconstitutionally usurped by our elected officials, can it be said that any member of congress fits within a recognized set of moral parameters? After all, it is the moral nature of our legislators which must affect the life, dreams and hopes of not only this generation, but the generations to come. The amount of power which a foolish and cowardly American public has permitted our politicians to take for themselves is staggering. But what else...

Welfare must be ended except in very specific, very limited cases.

As the younger, better looking and more conservative son in the Bush family Jeb has been pushed toward a run at the presidency. The talk started early in his tenure as Floridas governor. Conservatives that never warmed to George W. Bushs compassionate conservatism longed for the real thing. The conservative blogosphere asked if we didnt elect the wrong Bush.

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz chose a conservative, evangelical Christian university as the setting for his announcement that he was running for president. This underscored his apparent strategic decision to focus relentlessly on the conservative, highly religious segment of his party, both in terms of attempting to become their candidate of preference, and also in terms of maximizing their turnout in the 2016 primary elections. The Republican Party in general has a disproportionate percentage of conservative and highly religious Americans in its ranks, so Cruz's strategy would appear to make numerical sense -- as it would for other conservative politicians, like...

The writer moans that such an undercutting of Obamas authority will damage the delicate negotiations Obama is in with the Iranians;...

    Last week both the Republican and Democrat wings of the Uniparty celebrated another defeat of the TEA party movement with the re-election of John Boehner as the Speaker of House. After all, try as it might the TEA party movement was not able to muster the necessary votes to at least push the contest into an embarrassing second round. Closer examination suggests a very different reality. The rules of the House say that in an election for Speaker the person who gets the most votes of those actually present when the roll is called wins. Clearly this gives an advantage...

    It is time to quit pushing them, put the bridle back in their mouths, and grab the reins of the horse and lead them to where we want them to go. Where a constitution, like ours, wears a mixed aspect of monarchy and republicanism, its citizens will naturally divide into two classes of sentiment, according as their tone of body or mind, their habits, connections and callings, induce them to wish to strengthen either the monarchical or the republican features of the constitution.

    What do you have going on tomorrow? asks Craig, who is himself a state senator and was his daughters campaign manager. I might see some friends. I have to write those thank-you letters. The letters are to her supporters, some of the 18,000 West Virginians Saira will be representing in the 59th District a mostly rural, mostly Republican region two hours from Washington. She won the election in November by beating her opponent, a 44-year-old attorney, with 63 percent of the vote, and since then she has become the most famous state legislator in the country, as well as...

    Countless politicos and media pundits have offered what each believes the real reason for the drubbing Democrats took on November 4th. A few mavericks even suggested the impossiblethat Barack Obamas policies were to blame for the carnage rather than his Blackness. But leave it to San Franciscos brainy congresswoman, Nancy Pelosi, to provide the indisputable skinny on a midterm catastrophe which strengthened the GOP hold on the House and robbed Harry Reid of the Senate. As Nancy explains it, to succeed, we must inspire, educate and remove obstacles to participation. Only by changing our political environment and broadening the universe...

    There is certainly no denying the historical significance of Tuesday's victories by Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) in South Carolina and Congresswoman-Elect Mia Love (R-UT) in Utah, but the most surprising and politically significant for the GOP came in Texas' 23rd District, with Will Hurd ousting Democratic Party incumbent Pete Gallegos. Will Hurd's triumph not only makes him the first black Republican member of congress from the Lone Star State since Reconstruction, but is impressive in that he took out a sitting Democrat in a predominately minority district. In a district with a 55 percent Latino population and median annual income...

    Oh boy this is going to be a nail biter; a real long night; and we might not know who will control the Senate until January! Reading sites like Real Clear Politics (RCP) this was the only reasonable position to take yesterday. In race after race across the country we were told that Republican candidates were losing the strong lead we intuitively knew they had. We heard from RCP and elsewhere that Tom Cottons lead had fallen to just 2 points when that same day another poll had him plus 12. Both were factored in and of course that diluted...

    While experts predicted a good night for Republicans, the 2014 Midterm Elections turned out to be a stampede exceeding even the most optimistic hopes of conservatives. In addition to taking control of the US Senate and increasing its majority in the House of Representatives, Governors mansions and State Legislatures across the country, Republicans established themselves as a legitimate "big tent party" with ground-breaking firsts from coast to coast. The GOP gained majority control of the US Senate by sweeping close races through the country, holding a 52-47 advantage as of press time, with tight contests in Alaska and Virginia still...

    By Kevin Coach Collins Whether we want to accept it or not, as conservatives we must be the grownups in America. Liberals have always been the children who see a $10.00 bill in moms pocketbook and wont accept her claims that We cant afford to go to the amusement park, your father is out of work. Like children, liberals dont understand economics; they just know they want to have fun and dont care where the money comes from. They dont care who has to do without so they can get what they want when they want it. As adults, conservatives...

    Former Democratic pollster Pat Caddell blasted the Republican Party for not making the presidents planned executive amnesty a national issue ... The Republican Party, theyre not called the stupid party for nothing. These people are able to, are willing to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory given the opportunity, he stated. It's amazing to me. I've never seen a party that doesn't grab opportunities thrown at it like this, he declared. And they [Republicans] should be taking this issue and making it a national referendum issue against every Democrat, and for every Republican in the country. He speculated that...

    The puppet masters who forced Barack Obama on us cant help the Democrats this year. Obama is not officially on the ballot but this race is certainly all about him and how incompetent he is. The man has failed in everything he has done and no amount of spinning has been able to change this fact. The Democrats will use big money, a well-organized Get-Out-The-Vote operation and a dash of voter fraud to try to save the Senate. Whether they succeed or not will depend on how closely a particular candidate is tied to Obama and how much he/she supported...

    In an election climate in which issues favor Republicansand polls indicate a potential GOPlandslide, conservatives need still be wary of Democrat skullduggery and its impressive ground game. The trend of 21st century politics shows that issues and national sentiment have taken a back seat to get-out-the-vote efforts, particularly given Democratic Party reliance on voting constituencies that pay far less attention to the issues and are less up to date on news and current events. Despite having a solid advantage on the issues, the Republican Party risks seeing its hopes for November glory washed away by busloads of Democrats "useful idiots"...
