The GOP Will Lose the Election to Spite Ted Cruz

As Ted Cruz gains momentum, the GOP establishment is having a panic attack. If the GOP is a vampire, Ted Cruz is sunlight. For decades, the GOP vampires have lived a life of dominance in the darkness, and now the American people are threatening to open the drapes. This is life or death to them. Republicans can deal with Obamas and Clintons all night long because as Democrats lie, cheat, and fundamentally destroy our culture, Republicans can simply sit back and point their fingers in faux outrage.

As The Washington Elites Try to Disarm Trump, He Only Grows Stronger

“You must never underestimate your opposition.” – John Scarlett I’m not sure what the political class is thinking at this unexpected moment in political history. They’re certainly used to being able to predict with extraordinary accuracy the movement of the political river, but with Donald Trump, they’ve left the river and entered an ocean, adrift—and that makes them angry. The elites want Trump out of the picture. They’ve wanted Trump gone since day one because he cannot be controlled by the Read more […]

The GOP Presidential Candidate the DNC Hates the Most is …

It might surprise you to know that the Democrats have a favorite Republican presidential candidate—to hate: The Hill tallied the DNC’s social media mentions of Republican presidential contenders, scanning press releases, tweets and Facebook posts from July 2014 through June 2015, to see whom the group has been hitting the most over the past year. [Rand] Paul ranks as the DNC’s top target, with 203 mentions. Christie follows with 202 attacks, and Bush trails closely behind him with 199. With Read more […]

Adam Johnson Tries to Argue GOP ‘Chicken Hawks’ Are Cowards, Then Forgets How to Argue

Adam Johnson wrote a pice for Alternet, which was reprinted on, in which he trashes the top five Republican “Chicken Hawks.” For the uninitiated, a chicken hawk is someone who has himself never served in the military, but is “eager to send American men and women overseas.” First mistake. Johnson uses a word that encourages the reader to believe that these men are excited to send people to war, that they are just itching to send men and women to die. Eager. False. Johnson then proceeds Read more […]

The New GOP: Brinkmanship, Gamesmanship, Plain Politics, or Real Convictions?

Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between political games and political convictions. Recently, Rand Paul almost single-handedly derailed the newest iteration of the Patriot Act. Some in the GOP believe his actions were nothing more than a political stunt to galvanize his Libertarian base. For instance, Mike Lee of Utah, who is not running for president, thinks most of Paul’s legislative actions are designed to play into Paul’s presidential bid: “The American people deserve better Read more […]

Amtrak Train Crashed Because Engineer is a Gay Marriage Activist

Should the fact that the Amtrak engineer is a gay marriage activist factor in when considering why the train crashed, killing several and injuring many others? No, I don’t think so. What we know so far is that he was just going way too fast around a 50mph curve. From his own account, it sounds like he blacked out or something. Of course, that’s just his side of the story. Edge Media Network reported on the engineer’s homosexuality: Though Amtrak has yet to reveal the engineer of the Washington-New Read more […]

Republicans: Do Not Fall For The Illusion of “The Right Side of History”

“The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.” – Marcus Aurelius Why do people love the term “being on the right side of history?” They love it because it implies that at this current moment, they know what’s best, that they are prescient. Telling someone “We are on the right side of history” while still in the present gives one a sense of empowerment, and self-righteousness that isn’t necessarily real–because at that moment, Read more […]

Poll Shows Public Doubts if Obama Will Work with GOP

After the Republicans won control of Senate and gained more seats in the House, Barack Obama told the American people that he wants to work with them to get things done. I recall him saying something similar in 2010 when the Republicans won control of the House, splitting control of Congress with the Democrats. Yet in the four years since that time, Obama has refused to work with the GOP House. He has repeatedly insisted that they cave in to his demands or he would veto everything that they sent Read more […]

Time for GOP to Put Up or Shut Up

Ever since the Democrats took control of Congress in 2006 and then the White House in 2008, Republicans have been complaining. Obamacare has been one of their biggest complaints. Republicans have been against the forced penalties for Americans that don’t have health insurance. They’ve been against many of the taxes imposed by Obamacare along with the high costs of healthcare and reduction in quality of coverages. They’ve also complained about some parts of the employer mandate and how it Read more […]

Top NH Democrat Endorses GOP Senate Candidate Scott Brown

Former US Senator Scott Brown from Massachusetts is making another run for the Senate, but this time in New Hampshire. He is challenging the Democratic incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. Many didn’t give Brown much of a chance of stealing Shaheen’s senate seat. On April 22, 2013, polls showed that Shaheen held a 49.5% to 36.3% lead over Brown. By January 1, 2014 she still held a 47.5% to 39.8% lead and on July 10, 2014 her lead was 52.7% to 45% over Brown. However, since then, Shaheen’s lead Read more […]

Senate Control Slipping Away from Democrats

The last thing Barack Obama wants to see happen is for the Democrats to lose control of the Senate. When he was first elected in 2008, the Democrats controlled both the Senate and the House. Within two years the American people started to turn away from Obama and Republicans won control of the House quite handily. In 2012, the gap between Democrats and Republicans in the Senate narrowed, but not enough to wrestle control away. With less than two weeks left before the 2014 midterm elections, it’s Read more […]

Liberal Group: Ebola Deaths are GOP’s Fault

An ad put out by a liberal group called Agenda Project Action Fund blames the GOP for the Ebola outbreak and the subsequent Ebola deaths. If it hadn’t been for the GOP’s “shutting down the government” and enforcing “sequestration,” there wouldn’t be an Ebola problem today. It’s all because conservatives want to cut wasteful government spending that people have died from the Ebola virus. If the government had been able to spend as much money as possible in whatever way it wanted, Read more […]
