RNC: Day 2

RNC: Day 2

  Tonight’s headliners can be loosely classified under the rubric of the Surrender Caucus. In addition to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Speaker of the House, Luis Gutierrez’s gringo friend Paul Ryan, will take center stage. By the way, Mr. Ryan is facing a conservative, anti-mass immigration primary challenge.

The State Of The GOP

The State Of The GOP

Tuesday saw Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address before Congress. Unsurprisingly, there was very little substantive discussion of the one subject Americans are preoccupied with at the moment, i.e. the complete evisceration of this nation’s immigration laws by the current administration. There was, however, a typically pompous denunciation of purportedly divisive voices...

Misgovernance

Misgovernance

Although not bearing directly upon the subject central to this website’s mission, the U.S. Senate’s decision this weekend to revive the heretofore deceased Export-Import Bank illuminates both the rancid nature of Congress and its inability to exercise anything approaching oversight upon an administration flagrantly abusing its authority.

Political Theater (Call Your RINOS!)

Political Theater (Call Your RINOS!)

The battle over Loretta Lynch’s nomination escalated this past week, as the clown car of racial profiteers arrived to contribute their thoughts on Republican opposition to President Obama’s would-be consigliere. It remains to be seen how much mileage Sharpton & Co. will be able to generate out of her delayed confirmation, as even milquetoast cretins...

Stopping Lynch

Stopping Lynch

One  overlooked aspect of the current widespread conservative opposition to Loretta Lynch’s nomination is the hostility gun-owners have for a woman who, at least on policy matters, differs very little from Barack Obama’s guard dog. This antipathy has now been expressed publicly by national  gun rights organizations-including the Gun Owners of America-which have begun lobbying...

Roadmap To The Future

Roadmap To The Future

There’s a reason why I never tire of praising Senator Jeff Sessions, unlike almost every other parasite lurking within the nation’s capital. That is because there’s simply no one in public life with a keener appreciation of the danger our government’s policy of  unfettered immigration poses to our society, both in the short and...

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. We, like many patriotic Americans of every partisan affiliation, are celebrating the defeat of soon to be ex-Majority...

Meet The New Boss

Meet The New Boss

Here’s the roll call vote confirming Jeh Johnson as the next Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. There are a number of interesting inferences that can be made from the “nay” side of the ledger, which constituted a little over a third of the Republican Conference. While some of the votes  don’t require...

Through The Looking Glass

Through The Looking Glass

While most of us would see intense wealth stratification, large pockets of third world poverty, and cratering academic achievement as poor indicators of future prosperity, the governor of the nation’s largest state begs to differ.  Asked on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” about two negative indicators — the state’s nation-high poverty rate and the large...
