Eager to insulate U.S. President Barack Obama against the fallout from multiple scandals (IRS, USDOJ and Benghazi), one of his top former advisors is offering up an interesting excuse. David Alexrod, Obama’s former senior strategist, claims the reason Obama is unable to sufficiently keep tabs on all the corruption in Washington, D.C. these days is because … wait for [...]
U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford got a rude reception upon his return to the halls of Congress this week. According to Roll Call, his own staff couldn’t even spell his name correctly – incorrectly listing him as ‘Mark Sanfrod’ in a press release on his new congressional website.
Take a look …
Ha! That’s too funny …
The Roll [...]
When it comes to assessing beauty, you’ve got to hand it to “Republicans.” Seriously, you could slap a blonde wig and some heels on pretty much anything (say … the statue of Ben Franklin outside Washington, D.C.’s old post office) and they’d come running.
If it’s bleached, it’s “Republican hot.”
Like this emaciated giraffe …
Or nationally syndicated [...]
This website has run hot and cold with likely 2016 Republican presidential contender Bobby Jindal. However he said something during a recent interview with The Washington Times that we believe to be instructive.
“We’ve got to present thoughtful policy solutions to the American people — not just bumper stickers, not just 30-second solutions,” Jindal told the [...]
One of the great things about former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul is that he calls things exactly like he sees them … which is invariably exactly how they are.
For example, the elder Paul has been unapologetic in his opposition to America’s failed “War on Drugs,” just as he’s been adamant that government shouldn’t sanction or [...]
This website was less than enthusiastic about U.S. Rep.-elect Mark Sanford’s congressional candidacy. Not only did we endorse one of his rivals in the “Republican” primary process, but we refrained from supporting him against Democratic candidate Elizabeth Colbert-Busch. Why? It wasn’t because Sanford has a penis, it was because he totally flaked out in a debate [...]
This week’s big admission from the Internal Revenue Service that it unfairly (and perhaps illegally) targeted tax-exempt applications from organizations that used the terms “Tea Party” and “Patriot” represents a major embarrassment for the administration of Barack Obama.
But it should be much more than that …
The IRS was correct to (belatedly) come clean on its [...]
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is “sorry” it targeted groups with the words “Tea Party” or “Patriot” for additional scrutiny in advance of the 2012 presidential election.
According to the Associated Press, a top IRS nonprofit official said low-level staffers in Cincinnati were responsible for flagging groups with these labels when they applied for tax-exempt [...]
As part of his efforts to undo two-and-a-half centuries of American liberty, war-mongering fiscal liberal Lindsey Graham likes to refer to people as having been “radicalized.” In fact it’s one of his favorite new turns of a phrase …
Well you know what “radicalizes” us? Hypocrites like Graham who break their word to taxpayers … repeatedly. [...]
We had never heard of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach until this week … but we’re commending him to your attention after our friends at Net Right Daily unearthed his heroic advocacy on behalf of one of our most essential freedoms.
As the NRD report reveals, Kobach is currently on the front line of the fight to protect [...]
We’ve stated on numerous occasions that we believe “immigration reform” is a pointless exercise.
America lacks the resources or political will to deport anyone, and all this talk of “securing the border” is little more than red meat for the intellectually incurious. Nobody’s building a fence …
Meanwhile the real overdue immigration reform – a.k.a. expanded legal [...]
With fiscally liberal “Republicans” like U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) leading the way, the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved a massive new sales tax on internet purchases this week.
The legislation – oxymoronically dubbed the “Marketplace Fairness Act” – passed on a 69-27 vote.
Joining Graham in supporting the new tax – which would suck an estimated $23 [...]
