Will The Omnibust Finally Push Conservatives to Rebel Against The GOP?

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians
is the number one priority for the United States right now
according to most Republicans. That’s how we see the challenges
confronting the country at the moment.”
 ~Mitch McConnell

Everything that is wrong with this country is embodied in the 4,155-page omnibus bill negotiated by Mitch McConnell and supported by the majority of U.S. Senate Republicans. Like all bills that fleece the American people, it was dropped in a massive cardboard box at 1:23 a.m.… Continue Reading

Christmas Queens And The Oxymoronically Named Respect For Marriage Act

Written by Robert Knight

We’ve had a very serious setback this last week in the cause of freedom, courtesy of a dozen “woke” Republican senators. But first, we’ll begin with a bit of pop culture that speaks to where we are as a nation.

Sad to say, Mariah Carey won’t be able to trademark “Queen of Christmas.” Yes, in time, we will get over this.

The ubiquitous songbird, whose “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is piped everywhere, tried to monopolize the title legally.… Continue Reading

Amendment 1 Proponents Tip Their Hand to Hidden Agenda in Chicago Tribune

Written by John Lopez

This article continues addressing a ballot measure that Illinois voters must vote on this election cycle.
We urge voters to reject Amendment 1, a constitutional amendment that
would elevate collective bargaining rights in the Illinois Constitution,
allowing government union contracts to override state law.

“Hundreds of trucks sit empty in California this week, exacerbating a supply chain crisis already driving the cost of food and goods for all Americans to new heights.

Illinois Attorney General’s Actions Bring Worker Classification to Forefront Labor Day Weekend

Written by John Lopez

This article continues addressing a ballot measure that Illinois voters must vote on this election cycle.
We urge voters to reject Amendment 1, a constitutional amendment that
would elevate collective bargaining rights in the Illinois Constitution,
allowing government union contracts to override state law.

Note from John Lopez:  With developments late Thursday, September 1, with Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul (D) filing a civil suit against Drive Construction for violating Illinois laws, including the Illinois Employee Classification Act, this article will continue discussing Amendment 1’s hidden agenda, while on the surface is collective bargaining, but in reality Worker Classification will be implemented. Continue Reading

An IRS That’s Armed and Dangerous

Written by Stephen Moore

The Biden administration has a lot of nerve proposing to double the budget of the Internal Revenue Service and add 87,000 employees.

This plan is set to become law as part of the soon-to-be-enacted Inflation Reduction Act. And it comes around the same time as the outrageous FBI raid of former President Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago compound in Palm Beach, Florida. The Biden administration has converted the FBI and the Justice Department into functionaries of the Democratic Party’s character assassination campaign.… Continue Reading

Biden Puts IRS Funding Ahead of Military and Border Security

Written by Stephen Moore

Everyone should be deeply troubled by the recent report that the Army is on pace to miss its recruiting goal by dozens of thousands of troops and by the report that followed a few days later, alleging that the Border Patrol is running short of agents in Arizona and Texas. The border is so porous these days that even mayors of sanctuary cities are starting to complain about illegal immigration.

So, what is Congress doing about these crises?… Continue Reading

The Fight Over Abortion Continues

Written by Kristi Shaffer

The U.S. Supreme Court decision of Dodd v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade, is a victory for all who support life. The decision ends federal protection of abortion and sends the subject back to individual states to determine how and if abortion will be allowed in the state. It is estimated that at least 26 states will have strong restrictions or bans on abortion. While it indeed should be celebrated, conservatives should not let our guard down; the war for the pro-life community wages on.… Continue Reading

U.S. Senate Dems Want to Eliminate the Filibuster

Written by David E. Smith

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) promised that if Republicans filibuster a voting rights bill supported by the entire U.S. Senate Democratic caucus, as they are expected to, he’ll schedule a vote on changes to the rules by January 17.  See report.

On August 24, 2021, Democrat lawmakers in the U.S. House voted 219 to 212 to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act which seeks to federalize elections and take control of voting regulations away from the states. … Continue Reading

GOP: Seek Not Phony Bipartisanship. Save the Nation

Written by David Limbaugh

Riddle me this: Why would Republicans fall for the Democrats’ age-old ploy of pressuring them into working on “bipartisan” legislation that will only advance the Democratic agenda and damage the nation?

Indeed, what’s the point in the GOP puffing up its chest about ousting Liz Cheney from her U.S. House leadership position if they’re just going to turn around and behave like never-Trumpers by caving on Joe Biden‘s agenda? Why would they play footsy with the most militantly leftist party in American history?… Continue Reading

Render Unto Biden? Dems’ Appetite for Revenue Will Make Taxes Go Through the Roof

Written by Robert Knight

It’s tax season again and Caesar wants his cut.

The national debt is approaching $30 trillion, and Congress just added 2 more trillion for more “COVID-19 relief.”

The current bill [just passed] by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer is composed of massive pork barrel spending and a bail-out for high-tax Democratic states that have mismanaged their finances. Oh, and some more money for COVID-related economic distress on the heels of the earlier $4 trillion, of which $1 trillion has yet to be released.… Continue Reading
