Well, now we know why the GOP establishment kept their ObamaCare replacement package locked in a room where not even GOP senators could read it. Everyone naturally wondered what they were hiding, and now we know. They were hiding it because it is a horrible, no good, very bad piece of legislation.
If it repeals ObamaCare in any meaningful sense (and it doesn’t), it only replaces it with something as bad if not worse.… Continue Reading

This is a follow-up to our previous post on the disruption of town halls across the nation due to left-wing protesters, who aren’t from the area where the town halls are being held, and where the liberal media praised the protesters for standing up to the Republicans and President Donald Trump. The protesters praise themselves on a MoveOn.org website and at the Town Hall Project.
So far, fourteen Republicans have seen their town halls disrupted by left-wing protesters.… Continue Reading

A new Marist Poll found that the majority of Americans — 89 percent — believe protecting religious freedom is an important undertaking, with 57 percent calling it an “immediate priority.”
While Republicans were the most likely (66 percent) to see the issue as one of immediate importance, the poll, which was commissioned by the Knights of Columbus, found that 55 percent of Democrats and 51 percent of Independents agreed. These are intriguing findings, considering the ongoing debate over the balance between gay rights and religious liberty.… Continue Reading

On Monday, linguistics professor-turned-crappy socialist political commentator Noam Chomsky called the Republican Party “the most dangerous organization in world history.” Chomsky continued by explaining why this was no exaggeration:
The last phrase may seem outlandish, even outrageous. But is it? The facts suggest otherwise. The party is dedicated to racing as rapidly as possible to destruction of organized human life. There is no historical precedent for such a stand.
Of course, Chomsky is talking about Trump’s opposition to using the federal government to crack down on the fossil fuel industry in order to curb supposed man-made global warming.… Continue Reading

First a bit of news from Western Journalism. In one of his typically difficult to watch and listen to comments, President Barack Obama had this to say about those warning about voter fraud:
It happens to be based on no facts. Every expert, regardless of political party, regardless of ideology, conservative or liberal, who has examined these issues in a serious way will tell you that instances of significant voter fraud are not to be found.

The political arena is tough and hardened — cross a line or the wrong people and payback is a proverbial you know what. Or worse.
Dinesh D’Souza paid a steep price for his mistake: D’Souza asked two people to contribute a total of $20,000 to the New York Senate campaign of Wendy Long, and later reimbursed them. He pled guilty and was sentenced to five years probation, eight months in a halfway house, a $30,000 fine, eight hours of community service each week, and therapy on a weekly basis.… Continue Reading

A variety of advocates for conservative causes are watching closely as the Republican Party completes a draft of its official party platform.
Platform committee members met Monday and Tuesday in Cleveland to finalize the party’s stance on immigration, military readiness, and other issues that will be put before convention delegates for a final vote.
Many of the debated topics were hot-button social issues, including abortion and traditional marriage.
“Emerging Republican platform goes far to the right,” a headline at the reliably liberal New York Times declared earlier this week.… Continue Reading

In a Chicago Sun Times article, U.S. Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-Rockford) says Donald Trump “needs to begin to act like… someone worthy of Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan’s job.”
Kinzinger says he agrees “100 percent” with Paul Ryan’s decision to be outspoken “when Trump says things that violate his conscience, violate our party,” and that speaking out is an honorable thing to do.
Kinzinger threatens that if Trump “wants to say that we can basically throw away [Republicans] that have dedicated a good part of their lives to bringing forward a Republican view, he’ll do that at his own peril.”
Kinzinger says that if the vote were held today, he would not vote for Trump.… Continue Reading

Perhaps it’s time to bring back the American Liberty League.
Forgotten by everyone save a few history buffs, primarily on the libertarian right and the Marxist left, the League was formed early in Franklin Roosevelt’s first term by John Jakob Raskob, a former head of the Democratic Party. Its leadership comprised mostly conservative small-government Democrats, including the party’s two previous presidential nominees — Al Smith, who ran in 1928 (the first major Catholic presidential candidate), and John Davis, who lost to Calvin Coolidge in 1924.… Continue Reading
