    The same people who just voted no on Paul Ryan's bill because it wasn't "conservative" enough, are the same people who voted to make Paul Ryan speaker of the House. Why? Was Ryan more conservative back then, then he is today? Did Ryan promise them something, in order to get their vote. Or is the FC just a bunch of hypocrites. I think honest people know the answer.

    GOP Groups Call Carbon Tax A Free Market Solution To Climate Change CHRIS WHITE 11:15 AM 03/20/2017 Various conservative groups are ramping up efforts to promote what they call ďfree enterpriseĒ policies to wrestle the climate change warrior title from Democrats. GOP-affiliated groups, such as ConservAmerica and republicEn, are doubling efforts to recruit Republican lawmakers to work on rebutting President Donald Trumpís climate skepticism. They are also hoping to hijack the Democratsí traditional stranglehold on the environmental movement. Their primary goal is to use what they believe are free market solutions to so-called man-made global warming to entice Republican colleagues...

    Josh Mandel will stop at nothing to keep the people of Ohio safe from illegal immigrant crime. But that is a little unusual when you consider that immigration issues donít really fall into his job description. Mandel is Ohioís state treasurer and is currently locked in a political fight with liberal politicians over whether or not two of the Buckeye Stateís biggest cities should help illegals skirt federal law enforcement. He is coming up against a political machine that is thoroughly bipartisan. Earlier this year, the mayors of Columbus and Cincinnati announced that they wanted their cities to become sanctuary...

    Just as we predicted, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has released a report demonstrating that the ďtoo-clever-by-halfĒ approach of RINOcare will result in the worst possible outcome for insurance prices and coverage numbers. Itís clear that by exacerbating the death spiral of the existing failed market before 2020, the political reality will ensure that even the minor reforms implemented to Medicaid and the exchange subsidies in 2020 will never occur. And the disaster will all be blamed on a wrongly-perceived Obamacare repeal bill instead of Obamacare itself. Full repeal is the only solvent way forward.

Trump has 1242 more needing Senate approval, or the number may be as low as 500, it's hard to pin down. Republicans are to blame because they are in the majority and thus in control of the schedule.

If the figure is only 500...

    Itís no secret that Donald Trump is as much of a blank slate on policy as anyone whoís ever been elected president. Both supporters and opponents of the president-elect agree that Trump is still very malleable on many issues and has a lot to learn about both foreign and domestic policy. This is why it is critical for conservatives to win the Ďbattle of personnelí in the coming days. Failure to land conservative outsiders in key cabinet and advisory roles would be akin to failing to establish control of the beach head during the Normandy invasion. We can dream of...

    Donald John Trump is our 45th president elect because of the large number of first time-- or first time in a long time--voters who came out to support him. Many of these supporters hate politics as usual and are fed up with the smug arrogance of the political class in Washington, DC. Conservatives Ė myself included Ė hate Paul Ryan. His treachery revolts us; but we will just have to realize that throwing Ryan out would be a terrible first signal to Trumpís base, a base that is sick of the same old same old in Washington. Ryan is safe...

    Well, I have been saying for seventeen months that I guaranteed New Hampshire for President-elect Trump. I was wrong, I'm embarrassed for my state, and I apologize to Mr. Trump and to you all. We have too many dopers, I guess, who went for that idiot Johnson. At least me withholding my vote from her played a small part in the removal of Kelly Ayotte from the Senate. Bad choices have consequences, Kelly - if you had not stabbed Trump in the back, it might have made up those missing 1500 votes. Graham and McCain will have to find another...

    The Z Man ^ | November 5, 2016
    The other day I turned on Fox News and was presented with Britt Hume opining on the state of conservatism and where it goes after the election. Iím going from memory, but he said something like, ďThe Conservative Movement was about low taxes, small government, muscular foreign policy and opposition to abortion, among other things.Ē He then went on to point out that Trump is none of those things and that those issues are not featured in his campaign. What struck me about what he said is there was no trace of self-awareness. No mention of the fact that the...

    As a number of FBI investigations into Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's private email server and the Clinton Foundation continue, with indictments likely looming due to overwhelming evidence, the Republican controlled House is already putting impeachment on the table should Clinton win the White House next Tuesday.†Yesterday during an interview on Fox News, Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul explained the process.†"If the investigation goes forward and it looks like an indictment is pending, at that point in time under the Constitution, the House of Representatives would engage in an impeachment trial. It would go to the Senate and impeachment proceedings...

    Former Bush Regime Official Predicts Coming Stalinist Blood Purge of Trump Supporters October 29, 2016| by Donn Marten A former speechwriter for President George W. Bush has made a chilling prediction that conjures up images of Stalinist Russia. David Frum who helped to coin the slogan ¬ďAxis of Evil¬Ē has openly stated that once the election is over that Trump supporters will be subjected to harsh ¬ďrecriminations¬Ē that begin with exile from the Republican party and end up in very dark territory. The calls for punishment of those who are putting America first and exercising their right to participate in...

    (CBS News) WASHINGTON - Former GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and four other conservative members of Congress are charging that people with ties to Muslim extremists have infiltrated the federal government. Sen. John McCain denounced the allegations Wednesday, calling them "sinister" and saying they "need to stop." Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has been singled out. The State Department has responded to the allegations with very harsh language, calling Bachmann's charges "vicious and disgusting lies."

    The most recent set of Clinton emails that have come to light are of such great concern to national security that the FBI has announced they will conduct a new investigation of Clintonís emails. This is just ELEVEN days before the country goes to the polls and decides on our next president. Where has the leadership gone in this country? Since when do reputable news outlets stand behind candidates who have proven themselves over and over to be out for themselves and dangerous, even? It used to be that newspapers and legislators and leaders who speak from a platform would...
