Home DC
Our ongoing coverage of the bipartisan pollution on the Potomac. Click the links below for insight and analysis into the latest political news from our nation's capital ...
SENATOR EXPLORING TREATMENT OPTIONS ... This website is no fan of U.S. Senator John McCain.  We believe his failed interventionist foreign policies have cost our nation trillions of dollars and thousands of lives, and we believe his fiscally liberal domestic...
A DAMNING INDICTMENT ... It's a little over fifteen minutes long (yeah, who has that kind of time anymore?) but Scott Baio’s latest political rant on Facebook could be the most compelling indictment of the "Republican" party we've ever heard. "What...
ROSIE O'DONNELL WEIGHS IN ... To be clear: We're not blinders-wearing, reflexive "all in" supporters of U.S. president Donald Trump. We praise him when we think he deserves it, and we criticize him when we think he deserves that.  It's...

Scary DC Red Ink Surge

STUDENT LOAN BUBBLE BURSTING The federal government spent more cash during the month of June than any previous month in history - a whopping $429 billion.  That's a 33 percent increase over the $323 billion politicians in Washington, D.C. blew...
GOP "VIOLATING TRUST" Unlike a lot of "Republicans" in Washington, D.C., congressman Jeff Duncan of South Carolina has always been a reliable vote in defense of freedom and free markets.  We don't necessarily agree with him on every issue, but...
STEAMY MESSAGES ... As we've previously noted, we don't watch cable television news channels (except on presidential election nights). When these networks aren't spreading fake news, they are gleefully fomenting our nation's "all in" problem - polarizing public opinion in the...
