Republicans Promise To Do All They Can To Lose Big In 2016

In the month since they won sweeping majorities in the House and Senate, Republican leaders have begun to sit down and plot a losing strategy for 2016. “The American people have spoken and we have listened” declared the soon-to-be Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). They have sent a clear message that they want socialism.  They want big, intrusive government. They want redistribution of wealth.  They want America to become a socialist workers’ paradise.  Just not as quickly as the Democrats would do it.  That’s why we promise to continue Democratic policies.  But the march to socialism will be moderate.

Is It Time For Trey Gowdy To Be Speaker Of The House? It Sure Looks Like It

Is it time for John Boehner to go? In this author’s opinion, not only yes, but “Hell yes!” But who would we like to see in his place? Well there are some good choices and some not so good choices: Trey Gowdy R-SC Darrell Issa R-CA Jeb Hensarling R-TX Kevin McCarthy R-CA Walter Jones R-NC Jim Jordan R-OH Steve Scalise R-LA Tom Price R-GA Paul Ryan R-WI Cathy McMorris Rodgers R-WA In all honesty, this author would have to say that the best choice for Boehner’s replacement would have to be Congressman Trey Gowdy from South Carolina. He’s a tough […]

GOP CAVE: Cromnibus Will Not Include Relief From Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Program

Hat/Tip to Dr. Susan Berry at Breitbart. Even though millions of kids and parents across America have rejected it, and countless nutritionists, health care workers and school officials hate it as well, guess what? Good ‘Ole Johnny Boehner has given President Obama everything he wanted, even this crap. Though school officials, nutritionists, parents, and students have decried First Lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch program, the $1 trillion CRomnibus (part “continuing resolution” and part “omnibus”) does not include relief from the unpopular meals standards after all. Waiver? They don’t need no steenking waivers!! Daren Bakst at The Daily Signal notes that the spending […]

Mandate? We Don’t Need No Steenking Mandate: Boehner’s Spending Deals Have Increased Debt $4 TRILLION

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. “I came as a reformer, but when people in charge don’t want to reform, the only way is revolution!” Did that quote come from one of the Tea Party House Republicans? No. Ted Cruz, over in the Senate? Nuh-uh. Believe it or not that quote came from John Boehner’s own lips. – Hat/Tip to Mark Levin. He said that as a firebrand young Conservative member of the House, intent on reforming the GOP and cutting the wasteful spending practices of Washington back in 1993. My oh my, how the times have changed. Fast forward 21 1/2 years […]

House GOP Leadership Take Page From Pelosi Playbook To Trick Rank And File Into Supporting Obama’s Amnesty By Executive Order

    Hat/Tip to Matthew Boyle at Breitbart.com. Continuing to prove his fidelity to the Tea Party and all it stands for, Texas Representative Louie Gohmert shined a spotlight on a tricky maneuver that would make Nancy Pelosi green with envy. Well okay, Pelosi is green much of the time, but you know what I mean. In a lengthy interview on Friday afternoon, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) exposed how House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise strengthened President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty with procedural trickery former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber […]

11 Reasons Donald Trump Should Run For President In 2016

Hat/Tip to Jim Meyers of Newsmax. Here’s an article by Jim Meyers over at Newsmax, in it he offers his top reasons for a Donald Trump candidacy. 1. Trump is an American success story. Rich and not ashamed of it, he has parlayed his name and business acumen into a financial empire with ventures in real estate, hospitality, entertainment, and much more, achieving the success to which Americans aspire. His wealth was estimated by Forbes at $3.2 billion in 2013, although Trump has claimed this is a conservative number and his fortune runs billions higher. 2. He can draw a […]

Rick Perry Ramps Up For 2016

  Hat/Tip to Politico. Rick Perry isn’t waiting this time. In fact, he’s setting meeting with wealthy donors and the movers and shakers in the Republican Party. Texas Gov. Rick Perry is inviting hundreds of prominent Republican donors and policy experts to a series of gatherings next month that are intended to rebuild his damaged national brand and lay the foundation for a potential 2016 presidential campaign, fundraisers and organizers confirmed to POLITICO. The small-group sessions kick off Tuesday and Wednesday in Austin with a pair of lunches and dinners held in the governor’s mansion wedged between policy briefings at […]

Scott Walker 2016?

  Hat/Tip to Matt Vespa at TownHall.com. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is looking stronger and stronger as a possible 2016 GOP Presidential candidate. Scott Walker appears to be unbeatable. He’s won in a purplish state three times (2010, 2012, and 2014), humiliating labor unions, accruing the support of conservatives, and increasing the odds of a presidential run in 2016. Also, as Republican political consultant Mike Murphy once said, if you’re going to run for president, make sure your wife is going to vote for you; Walker has seemingly clinched that constituency, along with the rest of his family. According to Politico, an […]

Breaking News: Dan Sullivan Wins Alaska – GOP Adds Another Senate Seat

Hat/Tip to Fox News. It’s official. Dan Sullivan has won his bid to unseat Democrat Mark Begich and become Alaska’s next United States Senator. Republican candidate Dan Sullivan defeated Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Begich in Alaska’s U.S. Senate race Wednesday. The win gives the GOP eight Senate pickups in the midterm elections. The party is also seeking a ninth seat in Louisiana’s runoff in December. Earlier Tuesday, election workers began counting absentee ballots and early indications were Sullivan maintained an 8,100 vote advantage over Begich. It proved to be true later that night. With roots in Alaska, Sullivan recently served […]

WH Officials: Obama To Move Forward With Amnesty Executive Order “No Matter How Big A Shellacking Democrats” Suffer In Midterms…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Is anyone really surprised that President Obama is still going to go ahead and ignore the will of the people? In his news conference today, he said he’d been patient about immigration reform. What I’m not going to do is just wait. It’s fair to say I’ve shown a lot of patience and have tried to work on a bipartisan basis as much as possible, and I’m going to keep on doing so, but in the meantime let’s figure out what we can do lawfully through executive actions to improve the functioning of the existing system. – […]

One Week: GOP Leads 50-44 in New Poll, Obama Hurting Dems

Hat/Tip to Guy Benson at TownHall.com. Even though CNN twisted itself into a pretzel trying to, and eventually finding enough Democrats to get poll numbers favoring Democrats in the upcoming Mid-Term elections, things are looking good for the GOP. With exactly one week left until election day, the state of the race continues to take shape. Three major polling series have published their final pre-election national data this week. We told you yesterday about the NBC/WSJ survey giving Republicans a staggering 11-point lead on the Congressional ballot, which may be overly generous. CNN’s new poll is an outlier in the opposite direction, giving […]

In another clear example of something that your regressive betters claim never happens, a suspected democratic operative was caught stuffing ballots into a ballot box before early voting in Maricopa County.  The Blaze has more… “A person wearing a Citizens for a Better Arizona T-shirt dropped a large box of hundreds of early ballots on the table and started stuffing the ballot box as I watched in amazement,” said A.J. LaFaro, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party. The Maricopa County GOP chairman provided the Arizona Daily Independent with the following account of what happened during the Aug. 26 primary election cycle: […]

  Week seven of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek Out new life for the Senate, to Boldly shuttle Harry Reid back to irrelevance!

Real Clear Politics has Cassidy up 1.3 […]

The Odds Of Republicans Winning The Senate Are Growing…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Eric Holder’s announcement of his resignation was the neon sign that the Democrats were looking at losing the Senate in ’16.   Still plenty of time for either party to royally screw something up and alter everything… Via Washington Post: All three major election forecasting models saw an uptick in the likelihood of Republicans winning the six seats they need to retake the Senate majority over the past week, movement largely due to the party’s strengthened chances in Alaska, Colorado and Iowa. The most bullish model for Republicans is Washington Post’s Election Lab, which, as of […]

Mark Levin on 2016: GOP Must Nominate Conservative for First Time Since Ronald Reagan

Hat/Tip to Tony Lee at Breitbart. When it comes to the perfect Conservative resume, Mark Levin’s is chock full of bona-fides. From his stint as a 19 year old member of his local school board, where he often times was the only nay vote due to his staunch Conservative outlook, to his volunteer work on Reagan’s presidential campaigns, to his career in the justice department during Reagan’s tenure in the Oval Office, Levin brings it. As if that wouldn’t be enough, he also has his decade long work at the helm of the one of the largest Conservative talk radio […]

Dem Rep. John Lewis Says He’s “Terrified” Racist Tea Party Will Tear Obama Down…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Playing the Race Card. The Democratic Campaign Tactic that never grows old… /sarcasm off Yeah, John, Obama’s presidency is in a tailspin and he did it all by himself. Subject: Terrifying From: John Lewis <[email protected]> Date: September 27, 2014 8:58:29 AM EDT To:  Drew Barack Obama’s election was one of the proudest days of my life. I felt like I had spent decades fighting for that moment…and in many ways I had. But now 6 years later, Republicans are trying once again to tear the President down. And quite frankly, it terrifies me what they could do […]
