The Coverup Continues (Fast and Furious)

Party Divisions (DHS Funding Fight)

Party Divisions (DHS Funding Fight)

Despite the pressure brought to bear upon House Republicans during the recent DHS funding debate-in spite of the patently unconstitutional actions of this administration-over fifty of them refused to submit to the will of Obama’s factotum in the House of Representatives.

Criminal Negligence

Most of you are well aware of the fact that this administration, despite its repeated attempts to airbrush its blemishes, has an absolutely atrocious record of immigration enforcement.

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.
