  • What the IRS got remarkably right in the midst of a terribly wrong ruling about Christians and the Bible

    Just type the words IRS, Christian, and Bible in your search engine and you’ll get a flood of results, most of them starting with headlines like this: “IRS denies Christian nonprofit tax exemption, saying biblical values are Republican.” Or this, “IRS denies tax-exempt status to Christian nonprofit group because 'Bible teachings are typically affiliated with the Republican Party'.”Naturally, there has been outrage among Christian conservatives over this ruling, pointing to this yet another example of the IRS’s anti-Christian, anti-conservative bias. That’s also why most of the commentary has focused on the egregious ruling itself, which is being appealed.Yet, in the...

  • Republicans point to inflation in bid to retake Congress

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Gas prices have whizzed past $3 per gallon in much of the nation. The cost of used cars and new furniture, airline tickets, department store blouses, ground beef and a Chipotle burrito are on the rise, too. Many economists say the price increases are fueled by the aftereffects of a global pandemic and probably won’t last. But Republicans are hoping to storm into next year’s midterm elections arguing that steep government spending under President Joe Biden and a Democratic-controlled Congress has triggered inflation that will ultimately hurt everyday Americans. Republicans have nonetheless intensified warnings that inflation is...

    The political media have spent the entire Joe Biden presidency up to this point pressuring holdout moderate Democrats to join the left's efforts to destroy the legislative filibuster. One way they do this is by cobbling together revisionist histories that cast Republicans as uniquely obstructionist and undemocratic. CNN's White House correspondent John Harwood lays out that history in broad strokes: "for Clinton's 1993 deficit-reduction plan: 0 Republican votes for Obama's 2010 national health care plan: 0 Republican votes for Biden's 2021 covid-relief plan: 0 Republican votes the modern GOP response to Democratic governance is total resistance." What he fails to...

    Being labeled a “conspiracy theorist” by those using the term as a pejorative has become commonplace for me. The funny part is I was railing against other conspiracy theorists not too long ago, back in my “normie” days when I still thought there was a chance the system could be fixed with enough information getting out to the masses.I’ll be labeled a conspiracy theorist again for this article despite the fact that it’s 100% true. Much of it is demonstrable. The rest is informed speculation, which is to say we know it’s true without having the clearance to prove it...
  • Kook Conspiracy Theorists at Morning Joe: GOP Will Steal 2024 Election!

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    The liberal media loves to accuse President Trump and Republicans at large of pushing conspiracy theories. But it was Morning Joe today that pushed a huge one itself: nothing less than that Republicans would steal the 2024 presidential election by altering the electoral vote count. Mika Brzezinski kicked things off by reading at length from a column by Yale professor Timothy Snyder, wherein he spun the conspiracy theory. The Snyder scenario [emphasis added]: "The Republican candidate in 2024 loses the popular vote by several million and the electoral vote by the margin of a few states. State legislatures, claiming fraud,...

    U.S.—According to alerts from the FAA, the flight crew of a Boeing 747 flying somewhere over the United States is locked in a dispute over how fast they should crash their plane into the ground. Witnesses say the pilot, a Democrat, wants to fly the plane into the ground at 700 MPH. The Republican co-pilot, however, has proposed crashing at a much more reasonable speed of 600 MPH. "We need to be responsible here!" said First Officer Dan McTan, who prides himself in his Conservative values. "700 MPH is reckless and irresponsible! Crashing at 600 MPH will allow the crew...
  • It's Time to Consider Mandatory National Service To Help Heal Our Broken Country

    Our country is broken -- it's coming apart at the seams -- and it is not going to fix itself. Repairing it will take effort from all of us. It may require consideration of some big national changes. Too many of us are just sitting back and watching America's decline. It's time to consider any idea that holds some promise for national renewal, any idea that could universally bring us all together and teach us a shared cause. Perhaps even mandatory national service. Mandatory service would require every 18-year-old to serve for a year or more. It is not a...
  • Parliamentarian: Democrats only get one more chance to sidestep GOP this year

    Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough has effectively ruled that only one more automatic budget reconciliation is permissible this year, dealing a blow to Democrats who previously thought they would have two more chances to sidestep Republicans in advancing President Biden's agenda. MacDonough ruled that a revision to the 2021 budget resolution cannot be automatically discharged from the Senate Budget Committee, meaning Democrats would need at least one Republican on the 11-11 panel to vote with them. The bombshell ruling effectively means Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) will be able to use only one more reconciliation vehicle to pass Biden's key...

    Yesterday, we noted that so-called CNN "anchor" Brianna Keilar was behaving more like a left-wing activist, demanding that Biden fight harder against the supposed Republican "assault on voting rights." In another bit of CNN misbranding, this morning's New Day served up the spectacle of what the network peddles as "practical conservative" S.E. Cupp literally screaming at viewers, telling them they must vote against Republicans in midterm elections. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Wednesday on ABC’s “The View” that Republicans were “taking over the country so the fascists can rule.” Discussing the 100-year anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre, Behar said, “Well, what resonated is that finally, a president of the United States is talking about this moment in history. I mean, what happened to Kennedy? What happened to Carter? What happened to Reagan, Bush, even LBJ, who is from Texas? Oklahoma is right next door, if I recall. Why is Joe Biden talking about it now? He’s talking about it now because African-Americans in this country will...

    Who, exactly, was Paul Ryan trying to appeal to when he recently went to the Reagan Library and tried to explain why we should return to the kind of managed decline and failure theater that his rejection marked the end of as a viable Republican leadership strategy? Okay, the Beltway Cowgirl would dig his hep jive, and her soon-to-be-gerrymandered-by-the-Dems stooge Adam Kinzinger too, and the erotically dysfunctional geebos at The Bulwark are all in, but who else? Cue the tumbleweeds.The GOP managed to display some stones for once – no thanks to the aforementioned squish squad – by rejecting the...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/01/2021 | Patricia McCarthy
    Democrats in and out of Congress and every leftist propagandist in the media are now committed Marxists. They no longer even pretend to respect or value the Constitution. They are now pushing Critical Race Theory as if their lives depend on promoting outright racism as the essence of America. CRT teaches hatred and victimhood; it is the antithesis of our founding principles. Our Marxist left supports BLM and Antifa as well, anarchist groups to whom they’ve given free rein to riot, loot, and burn down countless cities and businesses. The Marxist left is on board with the campaign to defund...

    Two Republicans—Reps. Michelle Udall of Mesa and Joel John of Buckeye—provided the margin for the Democrat minority to defeat a bill requiring a voter ID for mail-in ballots. Udall explained that "since experts have declared that the 2020 elections were the most secure ever, it doesn't make sense to me to mess with how our elections are conducted." John pointed out that "by killing this bill we are saving a lot of paperwork for county election officials." Democrat Rep. Jasmine Blackwater-Nygren argued that "the bill is a violation of the secret ballot principle. In a democracy the voter has a...

    Republicans in the Senate held together to thwart attempts to form a commission to investigate the trespassing and minor property damage that happened at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. We should all refuse to call it an insurrection or even a riot at this point if for no other reason than to frustrate the left—in particular, leading Democrats like this bitter former presidential candidate who keeps lying to her followers:An angry mob attacked our Capitol, our lawmakers, and our election. They killed a policeman. And Republican leaders would rather we all not know more about what happened.— Hillary Clinton...
  • Senate Republicans pitch $928 billion infrastructure offer

    Senate Republicans on Thursday unveiled a $928 billion infrastructure proposal that includes $506 billion for roads, bridges and major projects and $98 billion for public transit systems. The latest offer is substantially more than the $568 billion infrastructure framework the group led by Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) introduced in April, but it’s still far short of the $1.7 trillion counteroffer that White House officials came back with last week.

    MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, on Tuesday’s “The Last Word,” said that 53% of Republicans failed “a basic mental competency test question,” which is who is the president of the United States” because they think Donald Trump won the 2020 election. Discussing new Texas election legislation, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) said, “It’s very much a naked power grab. Also, if you look at the leadership in Texas, Lawrence, it very much is out of sync with the population of Texas. Texas is an incredibly diverse state, and the Republican leadership in Texas is not. It’s very sad to say, but I think...

    The prospects for a Republican victory in 2022 aren’t looking too shabby. Indeed, the GOP has a considerable chance of retaking both chambers of Congress in the midterm elections if it plays its cards right.Sure, a GOP triumph is far from guaranteed. The Democrats still have political weapons to wield against the right, and they have been using these cudgels as well as they can manage.The Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol building will continue to dog the Republican Party for as long as the Democrats can focus the nation’s attention on the incident. So far, the Democrats and...

    Republicans nearly doubled their counteroffer to $1 trillion in negotiations with President Joe Biden over his infrastructure package. “We’re not going to disturb the 2017 tax bill, which was the best economy of my lifetime,” Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) said. “We’re going to make it eight years, as the President said he would accept. We’re going to hit a figure, very close to what the President said he would accept.”

    Virginia’s Democrats know a bad thing happened to them on May 8. They know more than 53,000 Republicans signed up for the unassembled convention to select candidates for statewide office when only 5,000 were expected. They know that Republicans will have the more diverse ticket, Republicans who have the resources and momentum and Republicans who have on their side what are shaping up as the issues in this campaign. They know Republicans selected a transformational ticket, led by businessman Glenn Youngkin, who lives in Great Falls but grew up in Virginia Beach, giving him links to two of the state’s...
