  • Think tanks see Common Core as yet another woe for Democrats this cycle; GOP-e are you listening?

    According to the left leaning Brookings Institute, Common Core is turning into a serious problem Democrats will have to deal with during this coming election cycle. The socialist’s dream program has ignited a growing backlash from furious parents who don’t want their children exposed to Common Core because it is inefficient at best and inappropriately loaded with sexual content at worst. Given that Common Core has been adopted in forty five states it will be difficult for most of those who have supported it to dodge responsibility for the mess they have created. Sizing the situation up, a Brookings spokesman...

    April 15, 2014RNC Sues IRS for Illegal Stonewalling WASHINGTON – Today the Republican National Committee (RNC) filed a lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for withholding records sought by the RNC’s 2013 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. In the initial request on May 21, 2013, the RNC sought to review documents and correspondence related to criteria used for reviewing and approving 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations. This request followed revelations that the IRS had been targeting conservative organizations, and the RNC sought to shed light on who had ordered actions to be taken against those groups and why.Over the course...

    When David Jolly beat Alex Sink in a recent special election for a Florida congressional seat, the knee jerk reaction from the GOPe’s pet pollsters was to immediately warn the Republican rank and file that Jolly didn’t win because of Obamacare. “Who are you going to believe, us or your lying eyes?” came to mind. Phonies like Karl Rove pontificated about how winning elections requires more than simply getting on the right side of issues voters care about and hammering that message home. Hey, who knew there was more to winning elections than supporting the things voters want and opposing...

    The Republican Establishment’s (GOPe) deliberate war against its natural base raises the question of why the GOPe is so bent on self-immolation. Everyone concerned knows a GOPe incited civil war is coming in the Republican Party. It’s now a sad foregone conclusion. Recently we saw the GOPe’s Fort Sumter moment in a barely coherent stream of consciousness attack on conservatives from Shaun Kenney the newly appointed Executive Director of the Virginia Republican Party. Apparently interested in sucking up to the GOPe, Kenney, a 35 year old pup, has posted, “Conservatives have a moral duty to drive out nativism once and...

    When the hot air balloon that was to take Chris Christie to the 2016 Republican presidential nomination crashed on the traffic choked streets of Ft. Lee New Jersey the Republican establishment (GOPe) must have panicked. They couldn’t run Bob Dole or John McCain again and Mitt Romney has already said he didn’t really want to run the first time. They must have immediately started a search for this cycle’s winner of “American RINO.” That search seems to have led them to Jeb Bush the former governor of Florida, younger brother of George W.

    I’ve been a conservative Republican since my Dad, a Chicago Packard Service manager said he voted against that SOB Roosevelt 4 times. That said, a term that has been lost in the dust is “loyal opposition.” Liberals and conservatives in this constitutional republic both have a certain love of country – maybe even God – and only see the ongoing maintenance of the republic from different viewpoints. One wins an election, the other loses and becomes the loyal opposition. This is never good enough for the “progressive” mindset which seeks to destroy and rebuild our extraordinary success into a global...

    Georgia's Republican Governor, Nathan Deal, seems poised to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat by strong-arming the legislature away from pushing a bill to withdraw completely from imposing Common Core education standards on the state's schools and toward implementing most of the Common Core policies this year. State Senator William Ligon (R-Brunswick) was the voice against Common Core's being forced on Georgia schools. In 2013 he led a coalition of citizens to try to pass a law that put a halt to the policies. Opposition to Common Core became so stiff that Governor Deal was forced to issue a...
  • Why have Open Primaries?

    Almost half of the states have open primaries. Why do states like Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Texas have open republican primaries? It's like having a death wish to turn purple, blue, and asphyxiated by democrat and independent voters. One of the first things the Tea Party needs to do is turn more states into closed primaries. The theory is that open primaries will bring more voters to our tent. I don't buy it. Or maybe the republican brand name is so bad that people don't want to register as republicans and be stigmatized. But then you would...

    If you believe burned up phone lines, overflowing email accounts and a notoriously contentious closed door, Capitol Hill meeting helped kill any shot establishment House Republicans had of passing amnesty this year, you’d be right. But equally compelling for GOP decision makers was the fact that donations which have historically gone to members of the Party establishment are now flowing to conservative candidates and conservative PACS. By March 31st of each year, campaigns must file a report of donations with the Federal Election Commission. According to the numbers, Democrats outperformed Republicans in 2013, collecting some $200 million to $170 million...

    There is a lot that has been said about immigration reform. Some advocates of performing a massive overhaul of our immigration system will tell you the system is broken. They will insist something needs to be, has to be done. It is true that we have problems in how the immigration system is working, but those problems stem from an unwillingness of our government to enforce our immigration laws in the first place. This unwillingness is much more prominent in the Obama administration, with his specific orders to refrain from many deportations. The President's excuse is that it is simply the...

Of course there will be consequences for them and their Democrat buddies but those consequences will be very different and it’s hard to believe they don’t know it. The time when we could say...

But over the last three national elections, including the 2010 midterm elections that propelled the Republicans to take control of the U.S. House of Representatives, things haven’t worked out as planned. Mark Levin, author of The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic, charts a path to reel in the growth of this ever-expanding federal leviathan by harnessing the sentiment that inspired the Tea Party movement. In a three-hour interview he conducted with C-SPAN that aired Sunday night, he praised the Tea Party movement and...

    Republican Governor Tom Corbett, who announced he's running for re-election next year, likes to tell Pennsylvanians he hasn't raised taxes. He ran for office four years ago saying he wouldn't raise taxes. But that's exactly what he is doing today when he signs a "transportation funding bill" to fix roads and bridges along with subsidizing public transportation systems (especially in the Philadelphia-Pittsburgh areas). The bill replaces an out in the open 12 cent a gallon gas tax at the pump with a backroom tax on gas at its wholesale price. It also raises registration fees for vehicles in the state...

    The Merriam- Webster dictionary defines a pyrrhic victory as one which is achieved at excessive cost. It is costly to the point of negating or outweighing expected benefits. The word’s origin can be traced to a victory won by Greek King Pyrrhus over the Romans that was so costly that he ultimately won nothing. In their dangerous flirtation with granting amnesty to millions and millions of Illegal aliens, House Republicans are heading for a pyrrhic victory that will bring them not only the death of their party, but the death of America as well.

    It was once said that Politics and War make for strange bedfellows.

Norquist’s prominence today very much includes a ride on Ronald Reagan’s coattails. The 40th President’s name is invoked in the very first sentence of Grover’s bio on ATR’s website. Like Senator John McCain (RINO-AZ), when it comes to the fight waged by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) over Obamacare recently, Norquist would rather fight Cruz than the Democrats, despite the fact that Cruz has been fighting against what...

But it was predictable; when it was in power, you knew, for the most part, what you were getting. Cut to now and things look mighty different. The Republican Party today is, as political scholars Thomas E. Mann and Norman J.

    It is time for Christians, and those of other faiths who value this nation’s unique character, to leave the Republican Party and start their very own political organization. For decades, the Christian alliance with the GOP has failed to roll back or even mildly halt the relentless advance of liberalism. We have lost the culture, lost the traditional underpinnings of the nation and no longer have a national character we can take pride in. The Republican Party is useless for all those who are serious about upholding traditional Judeo-Christian morality.

    “Stand Up; You Look Pathetic” is great advice from Mike Ditka, but eight turncoats in the House of Representatives must not be watching his ads on Sports Central. Led by Paul loser Ryan, these top Republicans are “conspiring with Obama on Amnesty for Illegals” according to the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC. (1) The following turncoats will look to turn the tide in an October surprise that will drop conservatives on their heads and if not stopped will push amnesty through before the 2014 election cycle heats up! What is so upsetting is “that many of these turncoats have campaigned...

    The battle over whether the Republican controlled House will grant amnesty to illegal aliens or push back the Democrat controlled Senate’s drive to create millions of new Democrat voters has heated up. Because the House is in recess and its members are back in their home districts, the psychological warfare operations phase of this battle has been ratcheted up by the Democrats. A new report from the leftist blog, “The Hill” tells us that Democrat Representative Luis Gutierrez (Chicago – Mexico, Puerto Rico and South America) is crowing about personally knowing of between 40 and 50 House Republicans who are...
  • Matt Bevin and the Coming Revolution

    Earlier this month, we commemorated the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. It is sobering to think how much our forefathers sacrificed to create and preserve the greatest nation in the history of mankind. Almost every American family was dramatically affected by the Revolutionary War, Civil War, and World War II. Yet, despite their enormous sacrifice, the past few generations have diminished the greatness of our nation, depreciating the value of the gift that was bequeathed to us by our brave Founders. After five years of President Obama built on top of a century of progressiveness, many of us...
  • Coburn thinks defunding Obamacare is a horrible idea

    Sarah Kliff: What do you think of the effort underway to defund Obamacare? Tom Coburn: I don’t think it’s achievable. A good portion of the health-care law is mandatory spending and repealing that would require two-thirds of the House and 67 votes in the Senate. I don’t see that happening. SK: An argument I’ve heard from some of your colleagues in the Senate is that, if you oppose Obamacare, then the only thing you can do is cut off the law’s funding. TC: How many people are going to close down the government over ‘I want to get rid of...
  • We need more Republicans like North Carolina’s Republicans who “just don’t get it”

    Don’t those North Carolina Republicans know they should be catering to minorities who have never voted for them and never will vote for them? Don’t they know they should be telling their majority voters – those who elected them–to go to hell? Don’t they know this is what Uncle Democrat and his pet media want them to do to win the White House back? Thankfully they do not; according to a whiney New York Times editorial. Last week, in a piece titled “The Decline of North Carolina,” the “Paper of Record” cried over how the Tar Heel State has rolled...
  • To avoid being the 21st century Whig Party, GOP must forget minorities and focus on White votes

    We’ve heard ad nauseam the advice from our good friend Chuck Schumer about how the Republicans can win the White House back if they would only grant amnesty to millions of new Democrat voters and erase our southern border. This is of course a lie designed to destroy the Republican Party akin to deliberately directing a lost motorist to take a washed out bridge during a roaring Nor’easter. Because what Democrats say and do is so often Satanic and purposefully dishonest here’s some advice from a rank and file conservative who actually wants the Republican Party to survive and grow....
  • Good riddance to bootlicking collaborator Ray LaHood: a RINO’s RINO

    The end of June brought the end of putative Republican Ray LaHood’s tenure as Barack Obama’s Secretary of Transportation. After almost twenty years of embarrassing the very name Republican we have finally seen the last of him. In another era this prize collaborator would have made a great and effective captain of the Nazi’s “Jewish Police.” LaHood figuratively leaves Washington with his dignity in a match box and a portrait of Benedict Arnold under his arm. A Barack Obama boot licker to his last day, LaHood parroted Chuck Schumer’s lie about the future of the Republican Party, saying, “We will...

    We tried. We really did try as hard as we could. Over the past 237 years we have poured out the lives of generations of our young men and women to defend our liberties. We have willingly sacrificed our treasure and our tears fighting to keep the wolves of tyranny away from our door. But unless we change course now we will die on the battlefield of Good versus Evil. Today we find ourselves looking more like the patriots who were overwhelmed at The Alamo and crushed at Corregidor, than the brave signers of our Declaration of Independence. Try as...
  • Sarah Palin Should Start a 'Freedom Party' (within the GOP?)

    For the first time since the mid 1800s we hear today liberty voices rising from elected state officials including governors. But they're not in D.C.; instead they're in Kansas, Georgia, Michigan, Missouri and dozens of other states, making their own decisions on abortion, guns, constitutional law, ObamaCare, and practically everything. But no leader yet emerges, and no center. It is, like Pirandello’s play, with actors in search of a theater and a leader. Actually a leader is emerging: Sarah Palin. But new ideas need new forms to start again the conversation and bring in a new generation. For a fresh...
  • Republican Party Won't Survive Amnesty Bill and Neither will America

    The Republican Party won't survive the passing of the Democrat's illegal immigration amnesty bill. This shouldn't be too complex for the D.C. geniuses: if you betray your party's base to pander to the opposition's base, they win, you lose. If you screw the white working class to pander to the Hispanic vote, whites will stay home. If you destroy your base's trust in government, by passing yet another 2000 page bill no one has read, Republicans will stay home. Republicans are too busy working and raising a family to waste their time voting for a bunch of cynical, lying politicians....
