Five Reactions To The Announcement That Ted Cruz Will Campaign For The Republican Presidential Nomination

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Whether you’re a Ted Cruz fan or not, this is an excellent piece from over at Doug Ross Journal. Honestly, I’m sick and tired of the establishment (both the Democrat-Media Complex and the old, bloated, sputtering GOP crony capitalists) telling us who our candidates should be. I support Ted Cruz for President. Steve Deace: Traditionally if you want to win the GOP nomination you have to be one of the three tickets punched out of Iowa, and there is no doubt Ted Cruz is a serious threat to be one of those three. He […]

Boehner: House Will Fund Homeland Security, Block Obama On Executive Amnesty

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. While this is early and nothing more than a public statement (words, not actions), embattled Speaker of the House John Boehner is starting to sound like he may have taken the challenge from the right to his Speakership a bit more serious than previously thought. The U.S. House of Representatives will vote to fully fund the Department of Homeland Security this week while blocking President Barack Obama’s actions on immigration, House Speaker John Boehner said on Tuesday. The $39.7 billion spending bill was expected to pass by Wednesday, when House Republicans leave Washington for a two-day policy […]

Boehner Begins to Move Against Re-election Opponents

Hat/Tip to Elliot Jager at Newsmax. Hell hath no fury like a Speaker scorned… Newly re-elected House Speaker John Boehner is taking off the gloves. Some of the 25 Republican insurgents who opposed his re-election on the grounds that he is insufficiently conservative will find themselves locked out of desirable committee appointments or face other retribution, Politico reported. Now that he is back for a third terms in the speaker’s chair, Boehner and his team say they can count on a 220-member majority out of the 435-member House to follow the leadership’s cue. The reckoning came straight away for Florida […]

Boehner Re-Elected Speaker Despite 25 Republicans Voting Against Him: Boehner Immediately Seeks Revenge

Hat/Tip to CNSNews.com, Mark Levin, Politico and The Washington Post. Despite the fact that over two dozen House Republicans voted present or for someone else, John Boehner retained his Speakership today. The House has re-elected John Boehner to be speaker in the new Republican-led Congress, despite opposition by tea party lawmakers that underscored party divisions. The Ohio Republican garnered the votes of 216 GOP lawmakers as Congress convened Tuesday. That was enough for him to win a third two-year term leading the House. But in an embarrassing slap, 25 Republicans voted for other candidates or voted present. They consider Boehner to be too […]

More GOP House Members Rebelling Against Boehner As Speaker

Hat/Tip to Matthew Boyle at Breitbart. Does this mean Boehner’s days as Obama’s GOP errand boy are numbered? We can only hope so. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) issued a statement on Saturday detailing why he’s going to vote against House Speaker John Boehner’s re-election on Tuesday. Massie, who’s entering his second term as a member from Kentucky, now becomes the second Republican House member announcing the coming rebellion against Boehner. Massie joins Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) in the fight for fresh leadership, and in his statement he detailed how Boehner and his leadership actually have misled members of the House […]

Rubio Moving Close To Decision On Presidential Run

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Things could get interesting between Rubio and Jeb Bush in the coming months. Rubio is going to run. Update to a previous story. Via Miami Herald Sen. Marco Rubio says he’s moving closer to a decision on whether to seek the Republican presidential nomination, but he’s not there yet. Rubio tells National Public Radio “this is not a gut decision.” He also says in an interview broadcast Thursday that he doesn’t have a “date in mind or a time frame in mind” for making his decision, “but certainly soon.” Rubio, a Florida conservative, says he has “tremendous […]

McCain Wages ‘All-Out War’ to Rid Arizona GOP of Tea Party

Hat/Tip to Melanie Batley at Newsmax. You know, it’s too bad he didn’t show this kinda backbone when he ran against Obama in 2008. Someone should have told him Obie was a Tea Partier… Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain’s team is on a campaign to rid the Arizona Republican Party of tea party officials, replacing them with allies to the senator in advance of an expected bid for a sixth term in 2016. According to Politico. which spoke to nearly a dozen sources, McCain’s team has been working with strategists and fundraisers across the country to undermine the standing of conservatives […]

Must See Video: Tea Party Nation Founder – GOP Collapse Imminent

Hat/Tip to Sean Piccoli at Newsmax. History.com had this to say about the demise of the Whig Party which was brought about, in part by the birth of the Republican Party: Ultimately, however, the Whigs are best understood as an American major party trying to be many things to many men, ready to abandon one deeply held ‘conviction’ for another in the drive for political power. The party died not because its unique aura no longer appealed to voters but because it could not cope effectively or persuasively with what after the Compromise of 1850 became the great issue of […]

Tea Party Steps In To Help Riot-Racked Businesses Rebuild In #Ferguson: Media Silent

    Hat/Tip to Joe Saunders at BizPacReview. Those racist Tea Partiers are at it again!! Just days after Ferguson, MO exploded into riots and looting, they had the audacity to march into that town and… spend money in the stores that were managing to be open for business. While liberals “leaders” were crowing for the cameras and pretending to pray, St. Louis conservatives were taking some positive steps toward actually helping the Ferguson community torn up by rioting.  St. Louis Tea Party organized a “BUYcott” of businesses in Ferguson where some of the worst violence occurred. It’s an idea […]

What Senator Elect Joni Ernst Was Caught Doing 2 Days After the Election Tells Us All About Her Character

Hat/Tip to IJR. Joni Ernst was elected as Iowa’s first female US Senator last Tuesday as part of the massive GOP landslide which saw the Party retake the majority in the the Upper House of Congress. She is an Iowan, born and raised, and has served in the armed forces for over 20 years. For 14 months between 2003 and 2004 she was deployed in Kuwait during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Presently she commands the largest battalion in the Iowa Army National Guard. Now, as if all that isn’t amazing enough, it is what she was caught doing two days after […]

ObamaCare To Force Thousands Out of Health Care Plans With New Cancellations

  If I had the time to do so, I could point you to countless posts, both on this blog and on others, warning Americans of the “unintended” consequences of the monstrosity known as ObamaCare. The biggest consequence came in direct contradiction of the lie repeated, ad nauseam, by President Obama that if you liked your health care plan or your doctor, you could keep your health care plan and doctor. That has already been proven to be false, but as I write this post, there are plans to make it even more so. Thirteen states and the District of […]

IRS DOES Have Lois Lerner’s emails, Says Too “Onerous” to Search For Them

  The IRS Does Have Copies of Lois Lerner’s emails, but It’s “Too Onerous” To Search Them? Remember when the Obama Administration said they lost Lois Lerner’s emails? Yeah, that was a lie. Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search. The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this […]

Trey Gowdy: What if a Judge Says ‘Let’s Go Give This Guilty Bastard a Trial?’ MUST See Video

  Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network. When one sees Trey Gowdy in action, one is immediately reminded of a pit bull – tenacious, dangerous and of a single purpose – the destruction of his opponent. At Wednesday’s House hearing regarding the Obama IRS targeting scandal, Rep. Trey Gowdy put a Democrat Party-invited University of Baltimore law professor through the wringer in classic Gowdy form. The South Carolina congressman’s line of questioning was geared toward making the case that the Obama-Holder Department of Justice has been compromised and cannot be trusted to investigate the Obama IRS scandal in which […]

GOP Congressman Files Arrest Resolution for Lois Lerner

Hat/Tip to Jason Howerton of The Blaze. It’s about time. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) announced on Thursday that he has filed a resolution directing the House sergeant-at-arms to “arrest Lois Lerner for contempt of Congress” over the IRS targeting scandal. Stockman said in a statement that asking the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute Lerner for “admittedly illegal activity” is a “joke.” Instead, the Republican said it is up to the U.S. House to “uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President.” Under the proposed resolution, Lerner […]

Lois Lerner Fights Back – well, sort of

Hat/Tip to Politico. It’s “silly” and “brazen” to think Lois Lerner ‘lost’ her emails on purpose. Yeaaaahhhh, right. Lois Lerner has no records of two years of missing emails and Republican claims that she’s hiding something are “silly,” her lawyer said in his first interview since the controversy around the former IRS official erupted two weeks ago. “She doesn’t know what happened,” lawyer William Taylor III said of the 2011 computer crash that erased two years worth of Lerner’s correspondence. “It’s a little brazen to think she did this on purpose.” Lerner has been silent for more than a year, […]

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 […]

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 […]
