The return of Ten Buck Friday, support Joni Ernst for U.S. Senate

Week Two of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek Out new life for the Senate, to Boldly Go where our nation has been before! Once again focusing on the Senate races (Republicans need just six seats to oust the Dimbulb from Searchlight, Harry Reid as majority leader), is it worth ten bucks a week (30 pkgs. of Ramen?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again? With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in IA. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Joni Ernst? Real Clear Politics has Ernst up […]

Republicans sound alarm as White House prepares go-it-alone immigration measures

Hat/Tip to Foxnews. The GOP is preparing for an all-out battle between themselves and President Obama. All signals point to Obama taking unilateral, unconstitutional measures to address the huge numbers of illegal aliens inside the United States. “For all intents and purposes, America no longer has an immigration system. Instead, we have unsettling chaos,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wrote in a letter earlier this week to Obama, urging him not to go forward with unilateral action. The administration had indicated the president plans to announce a decision around Labor Day before leaving on a trip next week to Estonia and […]

Harry Reid Has 352 Bills From The House Sitting on His Desk: Why Wont He Allow Them to Proceed?

You know the familiar refrain-the GOP run House are the evil “obstructionists” preventing the virtuous democrat President and Senate from turning the good ol’ US of A in a virtual paradise on Earth.  And like all propaganda disseminated by the democrats, it is released to the media to be repeated ad nausea.  From there, the sheeple bleat compliantly.  There is one problem with the accusation… It’s completely false.  Instead, it seems that the House has passed 352 bills that have been collecting cobwebs on Harry Reid’s desk.  Here’s more… Post by Lynn Jenkins. So, this is typical democrat politics. They […]

Taking the Senate Doesn’t Matter

I’m writing here because I can – it doesn’t mean that we’re returning to full time writing. To the point.  A lot of you out there are putting your support behind McConnell and Cochran in order to assure a majority in the Senate.  Let me stop you from making that mistake by laying out some reasons not to and then explaining why getting them out is more important than taking the Senate. First, what they did in Mississippi is as insulting as it gets.  Even Hillary Clinton spoke positive of the GOP going after true conservatives and “expanding their base” […]

White House Fears Impeachment If Obama Unilaterally Grants Amnesty

    Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers & Breitbart. It has to be a violation of his constitutional responsibility, which amnesty and effectively opening the borders most certainly is. As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn’t wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama — but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, […]

Dr. Ben Carson’s Big Announcement – Must See Video

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. Dr. Benjamin Carson rose to national prominence after ripping ObamaCare to shreds at the National Prayer breakfast, with President Obama in attendance. In fact, he has written about that experience in his new book, “One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future.” He discussed this with FoxNews. Carson, who became a conservative sensation after the address, was highly critical of the direction of the country though he never blamed the president, who was sitting just a few feet away. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson wrote […]

Romney was Right

Hat/Tip to Newsmax and Politico. He tried to tell America during his ill-fated 2012 run for the President of the United States, but it seems he wasn’t listened to. Well at least it’s for sure that Obama didn’t believe him or listen to him, judging by Obama’s spectacularly awful year and half since winning his second term. In the nearly 20 months since Mitt Romney lost the election to President Barack Obama, many of the former Massachusetts governor’s predictions have played out on the world stage. For instance, Romney called Russia the nation’s “number one geopolitical foe”; he pledged strong […]

Obama Not Scared of Boehner’s Lawsuit, Vows to keep ‘ruling’ by Executive Order

Hat/Tip to The Washington Times. Obama ignores Boehner’s lawsuit threat: ‘I’ll keep taking actions on my own’ It would seem that not only is President Obama unfazed by a Boehner lawsuit, he openly mocks Boehner and the GOP in the House by falling back on his favorite tactic, that of division politics. “Republicans in Congress keep blocking or voting down almost every serious idea. This year alone they’ve said no to raising the minimum wage, no to fair pay, no to student loan reform, no to extending unemployment insurance,” Mr. Obama said. “This obstruction keeps the system rigged for those […]

More Foul Play by the Thad Cochran Campaign Surfacing

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. There May Be Enough Invalidated Votes to Overturn Cochran Victory Time to stop the RNC game of playing nice and to take the gloves off. Via GWP The Chris McDaniel campaign has identified multiple Mississippi counties in which enough improper ballots have been cast that a legal challenge to the outcome of the election is warranted. This after Thad Cochran reportedly relied on 25,000-35,000 Democrat votes to pull him to victory in the June 24 runoff. UPDATE: The Cochran campaign is reportedly asking county clerks not to certify the voting rolls until the last day possible so […]

Tea Party/Conservative movement alive and well, making big gains

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. Some Tea Party Victories the Mainstream Media Refuses to Cover The far left wingnuts in power in the MSM are trumpeting the news that the Tea Party is dead. LOL Fat chance, but keep trying to fool yourself there, MSM. The mainstream media is back at it. The McDaniel campaign appears to be mounting a legal challenge to the dirty tricks that won Thad Cochran the GOP nomination, but the media has once again pounced on the narrative that the Tea Party is dead. We’ve heard it all before. It’s easy to announce […]

Race Baiting Democrat Gets Schooled by Republican Armed with Facts

Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. It doesn’t matter that the Democratic Party was the Party that wanted to keep slavery. It doesn’t matter that the Democratic Party was the Party that gave us the Jim Crowe laws. It doesn’t matter that the Democratic Party gave us the KKK. It doesn’t matter that the Democratic Party was the Party that was against the Civil Rights movement of the ’60s. None of that matters to most Democrats today, in fact they don’t just deny it, they try and project that history onto the Republican Party. That’s what Brett Hulsey tries […]

Far Left Purges Moderates in Primaries, but only Tea Party are ‘extremists’

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Moonbats Push Democratic Party To Extreme Left As “Elizabeth Warren Wing” Purges Moderates In Primaries… Yep, we hear all the time how the Tea Party and those ‘evil’ Koch Brothers are pushing the GOP waaaaay to the right, but nary a peep from the MSM when the Moonbats push the Democrats to the left. Via The Atlantic: This year’s Republican primaries have been closely watched by pundits sifting for clues about the relative primacy of the GOP’s warring factions. But Democrats have primaries too—and this year, the left is winning many of them. National liberals point to […]

Texas GOP Straw Poll: Could we be looking at a Cruz/Carson Ticket in ’16?

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Well that’s the results of a GOP Straw Poll in which Conservative Republican and darling of the Tea Party, Ted Cruz and Conservative favorite, Dr. Ben Carson nabbed the number one and two spots. I know, I know! It’s way too early and it’s only a beauty contest, but hell, it’s still a good indicator that the electorate is tired of establishment candidates, and besides, Carson didn’t even show up at the convention – and STILL got second place! And how did Chris Christie do? Dead last at only 1.3% of the vote. Cruz captured 43.4 percent […]

Desperate Obama Afraid of GOP Senate, says it will be “unbearable”

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Well it looks as if Mr. Obama’s lifelong dream of being Supreme Ruler President of the United States is fading fast. It isn’t as much fun as he thought it would be, and in fact, if those mean old Republicans gain control of the Senate, then he’ll only be left with his pen and his phone… The president’s political world is more and more beyond his command. Instead, it is driven by Republicans in Congress, potentially power-shifting Senate races in states where Obama isn’t welcomed to campaign, and to speculation centered on Hillary Clinton’s agenda — not […]

Demands Explode for Trey Gowdy to Be Speaker of the House

Hat/Tip to The Conservative Tribune. John Boehner has said that he may not be Speaker of the House after this term. Boehner was the guest of honor at a sold-out luncheon with business owners in San Antonio. His future came up in a Q&A at the event with a Texas Tribune reporter, and Boehner did not commit to a full term as speaker in the 114th Congress that starts in January. “Listen, I’m going to be 65 years old in November,” Politico quoted Boehner as saying. “I never thought I’d live to be 60. So, I’m living on borrowed time.” […]

From The Mouths Of Babes and Childish Liberals

Kids do say the darndest things, as Art Linkletter use to say. It’s not that children necessarily make up lies. It’s that they have limited information  and understanding and they have vivid imaginations. And so, when a child fabricates a wild story to explain things they couldn’t possibly understand, we naturally find them hilarious. When adults do the same thing, it’s not so funny; especially when those adults are politicians or so-called news reporters. Last night, before shutting down my computer, I made a visit to BadBlue Uncensored News where I often find interesting subjects for a post. Almost instantly, […]

Karl Rove Declares War on Tea Party: Fundraising Drops by 98%

As so many people, including myself, have been pointing out, it seems that the establishment GOP is busily waging war against their own base.   The Tea Party movement had activated the Conservative base of the party in ways hadn’t been seen since the election of Ronald Reagan.  As such, the party establishment decided that the base must be “put in their place,” so they could return to voting for a “softer form of socialism.”   Karl Rove, know as the “evil emperor,” for his handling of the Bush presidency, was appointed to, or decided to, attack Tea Party oriented candidates all […]

The GOP Plan To Eat Its Own

I came across this American Spectator article by Jeffery Lord at the MB50 blog. It was the title, Karl Rove and the GOP Socialists, that captured my attention. Before getting into Karl Rove and his big-government Republican socialists, I need to be up front with you, dear readers, about my view of the geo-politics of America today. This humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in arrived at the conclusion some time ago that it no longer matters much who is elected to the House, the Senate, or even the Presidency. The Leviathan is out of control. Any […]

ObamaCare Damage: College Studenst Reacts, and it Isn’t Pretty

When college students were asked ObamaCare, the reactions were, shall we say, less than positive.  Chicks on the Right has more… Once again, I have suggested that the GOP, by reaching out with a viable message, can convert these people to GOP voters with relative ease. However, they are too concentrated on playing it safe with the democrats, and attacking the Tea Party, AKA, their base.  So, they’ll miss this classic opportunity. And that is why we call them the stupid party.

An Open Letter to the GOP Establishment

As the policies and actions of the Obama Administration have become increasingly recognized as destructive, the Republican Party establishment may believe that they have “default” support among Conservative and Independents for the upcoming election cycle.  I would urge you to examine this more closely.  As you may have noticed, the approval ratings for Republicans are still quite low.  There are multiple reasons for this beyond the fact that the left and the media are against Republicans. I believe that these low ratings are due to the Party’s abandoning of Conservative principals.  After George W. Bush was elected, government continued to […]
