Stop The Boehner-Cantor-Obama Amnesty

Stop The Boehner-Cantor-Obama Amnesty

This past week’s immigration theater confirm what we have been saying for years. Namely, that the House GOP leadership can’t be trusted to protect the interests of the American public, especially when they conflict with its corporate benefactors. Even as Boehner’s attack dogs from silicon valley are unleashed against his own members who dare to...

Coulter vs. Kaus at CPAC

Coulter vs. Kaus at CPAC

It turns out that the Coulter-Kaus debate was broadcast on one of  C-SPAN’s many outlets yesterday, despite the unofficial CPAC ban on discussion of the most important domestic political issue. You can watch the full debate here. In addition to covering the political costs of amnesty and the legally and constitutionally dubious nature of...

The Stupid Party Rides Again

The headline of this Thomas Sowell column says it all, although like everything written by Thomas Sowell it’s worth reading in its entirety. The patriotic base of the Republican Party, as represented by Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions, have blasted the latest feeble attempt at placating anti-conservative voters put forth by Boehner & Co.,...

Symbolism Over Substance

No sacrifice to meaningless, gestural politics is too great for the open borders demagogues of this nation. Much like their vaunted leader, they know that emotion-not reason-is their key to victory. Phil Ochs had these folks pegged.

We Are America (Stand Up Against Amnesty)

We Are America (Stand Up Against Amnesty)

We’re in the midst of one of Congress’s periodic vacations, and no one seems to be talking about the elephant in the room. Namely, the drive by the open borders lobby  to eradicate substantive immigration enforcement  in this country. Even as Tan Man attempts to force amnesty through Congress in order to placate his base,...

John Boehner (Invertebrate-Ohio)

John Boehner (Invertebrate-Ohio)

What a shocker. You’re sadly mistaken, Mr. Speaker. This debate-such as it is-is all about you. It’s about your fecklessness, your inability to stand up for principled conservatism-or principled anything, for that matter-and your consistent willingness to screw over ordinary Americans in order to placate corporate donors. A substantial part of your own caucus...

Kill The Bill

Kill The Bill

  Far be it from me to praise National Review-especially the feckless leadership of its current editor-in-chief-but when it’s right, it’s right. And in this case, NR is absolutely correct. John Boehner-never a profile in courage-needs to be reminded why he is the Speaker of the House. Here’s a clue: it’s not to fulfill...
