Republicans

Withering Heights

“I am sorry for a fellow when, every time he goes off by himself, he is in the worst company he was ever in in his life.” – Sam Jones *** “The President’s unconstitutional action is a direct threat to our Republican system of government and will have catastrophic consequences for the American people. It must be stopped.” – Sen. Jeff Sessions *** “Anyone who believes that the GOP will have a newly chastened Obama to deal with in 2015 must be living in one of those states where marijuana was recently legalized … his idea of compromise was for […]

The Executive Outlaw

 Based on his subversive actions, by definition Barack Obama is indeed making war against America, and it’s high time Congress responded by declaring their own war on a man who became a domestic enemy the day he violated his oath by refusing to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” (Time for Congress to Declare War on Obama) *** “Obama has NO constitutional legal authority whatsoever to alter, circumvent, subvert or otherwise ignore the standing laws of the United States concerning Immigration and Naturalization.” – North American Law Center *** “It is no accident that Obama is […]

Dirty Jobs Host Mike Rowe Destroys Liberal Hothead’s Argument: “It Is Impossible To Be A Christian, And Vote Republican!”

Hat/Tip to Onan Coca at Eagle Rising and Michael Cantrell at Young Cons.  Most Americans, at least most Americans who watch TV know Mike Rowe from his hit television series, Dirty Jobs. And what’s not to like? He’s a very likable guy, who isn’t above poking fun at himself, he honors hard working Americans across the country and has even launched a non-profit foundation to help out of work Americans find jobs – dirty or not. From his foundation’s website: The mikeroweWORKS Foundation announced its partnership with Scholarship America to establish the mikeroweWORKS Foundation Education Scholarship Program.  The 2013 fund has […]

Must See Video: Democrats Tell Bob Woodward Privately That They Hate Obama Too [VIDEO]

Hat/Tip to Alex Griswold at The Daily Caller.  Bob Woodward is an award winning journalist and best selling author. As an investigative journalist, he has written about differing Presidents, Republicans and Democrats alike. On CBS’ Face the Nation Sunday, he made vocal what many of us have known all along – that Obama has not only made enemies of the GOP, but he’s also alienated his own Democratic Party. . . . .

There Are So Many Great Takeaways From Tuesday’s GOP Landslide

  For 8 years Harry Reid was the ultimate obstructionist, blocking every Republican amendment, refusing to hold votes on legislation passed by the House, and nuking the filibuster to get Obama’s radical judicial nominees confirmed to the DC Court of Appeals. So naturally, after he got his ass kicked Tuesday, he wants to “work together” with Republicans. Hey Harry, in the immortal words of Dick Cheney, “Go fuck yourself.” I hope Mitch McConnell assigns Reid an office in the basement, next to the trash compactor. And then promptly forgets that Dingy Harry even exists. The American people didn’t give the […]

Democrats Now Hold Majority of Appellate Court Seats

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Quietly, almost as if he applied his inane ‘leading from behind’ strategy to filling the courts, President Obama has begun tipping the scales of justice over towards the left. President Barack Obama has been quietly reversing the federal appellate courts’ balances over the past six years, with Democratic appointees now holding the majority of seats on nine of the country’s 13 United States Courts of Appeals. It’s a little-noticed shift with far-reaching consequences. “With all the gridlock, it is forgotten that one of the most profound changes this Congress made was filling the bench,” […]

Change, Intervention, and Dependency

The concept of the government “solving” all the problems of the world has crept into our society over time. With every new program, every new entitlement, the public has  gradually become accustomed to the government solving the ills of the world. And what of fact that the government seemed to make all of these problems worse? Well, that’s neglected. After all, the government is taking care of it-I don’t have to worry about it, right? Starting with the “progressive” movement in the late 19th century and accelerating greatly since the great depression, the government has vastly increased it’s meddling in […]

An Ode To The Odious

Original Post:  Be Sure You’re Right, Then Go Ahead

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” […]

Mississippi Mud

“In light of last night’s election results in Mississippi, there is one question every conservative should be asking: How much longer can a party survive when its leadership is inexorably against the ethos of its base?” –  Daniel Horowitz “The GOP respects no truth, has no honor, is without any principle or standard of decency.” — Rob Cunningham “The Republicans have become the party of lobbyists, most of whom were on twitter celebrating their purchase.” – Erick Erickson “Republicans and democrats, democrats and republicans, what’s the difference? Neither represent the American people or give one big crap about defending individual […]

From Dirty Harry to Fraidy Cat

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Harry Reid sees the writing on the wall. His precious position of leadership is slipping from his gnarled hands and he is blaming anyone and everyone but himself. “Polling is close in 11 states, and only six seats protect us from Republican control over everything from the future of healthcare reform to the next Supreme Court nomination,” Reid states in a mailing on Friday. “The Koch Brothers and Karl Rove are pouring a mountain of cash into taking over the Senate.” He notes that winning four tightly contested states “is essential if we’re going to stop them.” […]

Tea Party Speaks – Eric Cantor is out!

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Tea Party Claims Huge Scalp as Cantor Crashes in Primary The reports of the Tea Party’s death are greatly exaggerated. It is alive and well in Virginia, and it took Eric Cantor as it’s next victim. In the most stunning upset of the midterm election season, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was crushed in the Virginia Republican primary Tuesday by little-known tea party-backed challenger Dave Brat. With 90.2 percent of the vote counted, Brat had 55.4 percent to Cantor’s 44.6 percent. “I know there’s a lot of long faces here tonight,” Cantor told shocked supporters in a […]

Pat Quinn: Latest in a long line of crooked Illinois Governors

In 1968, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner, Jr (D) was caught accepting bribes from a race track owner and subsequently spent three years in prison, being released because of terminal cancer. Fearing impeachment, he resigned before he went to prison.   If you were in Illinois in the ’70s, then chances are you saw commercials for Dan Walker (D) in his bid for governor. He was walking across Illinois, talking with folks and generally bad mouthing the Daley political machine which had endorsed Lt. Gov. Paul Simon. He defeated Simon in the primary and went on to win the general election. […]

Video: Students Shocked to Hear What Hillary Said

This is an excellent video that shows not only the institutional bias that colleges foist upon our young people, but it also shows how much of  a pass they are willing to give Democrats. At first, when MRCTV’s Dan Joseph read this quote, the students virtually all said that it sounded like something “any Republican,” or Mitt Romney, or Rick Santorum might say. “Marriage has got historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time, and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman.” He then asked […]

Mark Levin Slams GOP as ‘French Republicans’ at NRA Convention

Conservative radio icon, Mark Levin was a guest speaker at the National Rifle association’s annual convention Friday, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. He only spoke for a little over 10 minutes, but just like a scatter gun, he hit a lot of targets. Now it’s obvious to many of us that we live in a post-Constitutional period. This has been the objective of the Democrat Party for a century. Meanwhile, the other party acts like a bunch of French Republicans, confounded, confused, not sure what to do. They’re looking for a new agenda, they’re looking for a […]

The real attack on women: Women’s income suffers under Obama

It’s another attack on women!!! The GOP takes women for granted and expects them to stay at home! Heck, they even say that Republican women are… attacking women. Yeah, I know. That’s a real head scratcher. Former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land is running for the U.S. Senate as a Republican and shockingly, her Democratic opponent Rep. Gary Peters is accusing her of waging a war on women (Democrats are being really original with their attack strategy this year). Now, Land is taking on the issue directly with her first campaign ad openly mocking Peters for accusing her, […]

The Debt Limit Debate as Seen Through Groundhog Day Glasses

We all remember Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, the movie where one day in history just kept repeating itself. Well let’s look at the Debt Limit debate through the prism of Groundhog Day:
