New Jersey Senate Election

By county.  And here is the roll call of the Senate-approved budget deal which raises the debt ceiling for the remainder of this year. The two are related, albeit indirectly. Although the postmortems of this race are not yet in, it should be noted that Mr. Lonegan exceeded the expectations of almost every prominent political...

Al Qaeda’s Air Force

By “force,” C-Span means war, of course. Still, it’s worth listening to the arguments in favor of waging war on behalf of Sunni jihadists against Shia jihadists. You can watch the pro-Saudi Arabia/Zawahiri argument here.

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.

As those of you who’ve been followers of American Rattlesnake might know, the Obama administration’s efforts at enacting a stealth amnesty have been ongoing since at least 2010.

Decision Day (Let’s Melt Down The Capitol Switchboard)

We’ve finally arrived at the moment of truth for the United States Senate. Today, approximately at 10:30 A.M., that august legislative body will decide whether or not to allow millions of illegal aliens to exploit our nation’s economy because they squatted in this country for a fixed period of time.
