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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Why Republicans Continue To Push Amnesty, Further Alienating Their Base

“You give loyalty, you’ll get it back. You give love, you’ll get it back.” – Tommy Lasorda Loyalty has its proper position, and its limits, of that I am very aware. However, within its appropriate place, loyalty is worth more than gold. There are two main types of loyalty: loyalty to people, and loyalty to ideals. When one loses loyalty to their ideals, disloyalty to people is not far behind. As Tommy Lasorda said, give loyalty, and you’ll get it back. I would add to that: show disloyalty, Read more […]

Those Who Vote Against John Boehner To Be Punished

“Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels – men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower How can a necessary revolution take place if those who would participate in such a revolution are punished for their dissent? The revolution must be worthy enough to warrant forward momentum even in the face of cruel, and unusual punishment. And so it Read more […]

Poll Shows Conservative Foreign Policy Objectively Better Than Liberal

“Safety is something that happens between your ears, not something you hold in your hands.” – Jeff Cooper Perception shapes the world. Regardless of facts, figures, statistics, or evidence, the way in which we come to understand the world around us is what defines opinions. We absorb information, and it passes through a lens which has been formed over the course of our lifetime. This lens shapes the information we are given into coherent or not so coherent opinion. Our perceptions drive our political Read more […]

What’s Eating the Republican Party?

According to some social conservatives, the Republican Party is going libertarian. According to libertarians, the Republican Party is centrist. According to centrists, the Republican party is polarizing. What exactly is going on in the Republican Party? No one is giving a straight answer on that. After two failed candidates for the office of president, the Republican party is scrambling to find its identity. Will it try to capture the young voters who lean toward independent politics and libertarianism? Read more […]

Thad Cochran’s Dirty Victory

“In most other states, Cochran’s effort might seem odd. Why would Democratic-leaning voters want to choose the Republican candidate who hasn’t won less than 60 percent of the vote in any of his five previous re-election campaigns? Because the chances of a Democratic victory in the fall are slim, no matter whom Republicans nominate.” – Harry Enton I often complain about our electorate, and the unfortunate lack of information they seem to have when they turn off CNN, and mosey over to their Read more […]

Conservatism Beats the Establishment: David Brat Destroys Eric Cantor

“It should frighten everyone in leadership…They haven’t been conservative enough. We’ve told them that for 3 years. They wouldn’t listen…Maybe they will listen now.” – Conservative House Republican, speaking with National Journal on condition of anonymity Yesterday was a day that will live on in infamy. Ok, maybe I’m being dramatic, but yesterday was still pretty incredible. A Tea Party backed candidate defeated one of the most powerful sitting Republican members of the House of Representatives. Read more […]

Thad Cochran Refuses To Debate Tea Party Challenger

“The best weapon of a dictatorship is secrecy, but the best weapon of a democracy should be the weapon of openness.” – Niels Bohr Hiding and secrecy are sometimes a necessity of the persecuted. Sometimes they are required for the greater good. In the majority of cases, however, hiding and secrecy are the tools of someone who has done, or is doing, something wrong. In these cases in which wrongs are being hidden, the only way to wage war is through exposure. The secrets must be pulled out into the Read more […]
