Just Say No

Just Say No

The Republican leadership, whomever it happens to be at any given moment, never fails to disappoint Republicans, even those who have become accustomed to watching the GOP work as the eager handmaidens of their ostensible political opponents. That’s why the threats to delay the nomination of Loretta Lynch ring so hollow, and provide no...

The People Have Spoken

The People Have Spoken

Update: Roy Beck’s statement regarding the results in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District is now available online.  The only question that remains is whether the heretofore tone deaf GOP leadership in the House of Representatives is listening.

Fight Or Flight (The Stupid Party Bargains With Obama)

Fight Or Flight (The Stupid Party Bargains With Obama)

Last week’s election results undoubtedly left many readers deeply disappointed, if not disaffected, including those of you who couldn’t bring yourselves to cast your ballot for Mitt Romney for any number of well documented reasons.

Libertyfest

Libertyfest
