In ratifying law-breaking by both President Obama and millions of aliens, Boehner removed any lingering doubt that he is the Democrat-preferred Obama-Pelosi House Speaker. After the amnesty debacle, there can be no doubt that he is not even a RINO; he is the next-best-to-Pelosi front-man for the far left Democrats.
“I won,” declared Barack Obama, adding what is now a cliché: “Elections have consequences.” But, due to endless RINO lying to voters, Boehner and his henchmen have proven that is only partly true. Lying has been central to this country’s decay. First and foremost, campaign lying and liars must be stopped. This is an absolute […]
Reactions to John Boehner’s re-election as Speaker included scant attention to its implications for representative democracy. There is now no way for a majority of voters to obtain representatives who will represent them; and no way to compel a purportedly representative government to comply with their clear wishes on matters they consider most crucial.
The largest and most impactful grassroots political movement, at least since the civil rights movement and perhaps in all of American history, originated in the minds and efforts of less than a dozen Americans.
It was late February 2009, just weeks after the inauguration of Barack […]

I attended the annual Conservative Political Action Conference this past weekend, and as usual, it ended with a much hyped but slanted presidential straw poll. Alternative conservative Rand Paul came in first place, followed by Scott Walker, then […]
I made plenty of my male friends jealous meeting pundit Michelle Fields. My cousin thinks we’re related. Not sure how I feel about that, since she’s rather good looking!
Our Constitution has become a suicide pact.
That’s the view of Thomas Jefferson, expressed in an 1819 letter to jurist Spencer Roane, when he said “If this opinion be sound, then indeed is our constitution a complete felo de se” (suicide pact). The opinion Jefferson referred to […]
As a counterpunch to left-wing science fiction writer China Miéville’s list of Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels for socialists, Samuel Goldman of the American Conservative penned “10 Sci Fi and Fantasy Works Every Conservative Should Read.” As Goldman explained, “I’m not suggesting that these books express conservative views as such. […]
Rand Paul recently sat with me to share some of his views. The insights on his worldview left me persuaded that he deserves to be considered the most important public intellectual serving in the United States Senate. Time Magazine calls him “the most interesting man in American […]
With Sarah Palin once again hinting at a presidential run, pundits and politics wonks are all the more aflutter with 2016 talk. The predictable slings and arrows of the surly left are coming her way, while her excited fans are firing up the troops. Then there are […]
An article appeared in the Washington Times under the heading “Texas professor teaches students tea party akin to Nazi party.” A psychology professor (named Armstrong) at South Texas College drew a direct comparison between the Tea Party of today and the Nazi Party in Germany during the […]
Boehner’s problem with the militant right is not that he isn’t a conservative — he is — but that he is suave rather than confrontational. As an analogy, Baby Face Nelson was one of the most ruthless gangsters in history. Baby Face got his nickname for his […]
Last week, John Boehner (R-Ohio) easily won re-election as Speaker of the House. Only 25 Republicans defected, with 216 Republicans voting for him. In the days before the election, there was a flurry of emails and activity on social media about the vote, calling on […]
It would be best if Speaker Boehner were replaced by Louie Gohmert. Failing that, true conservatives should give RINOs a taste of their own medicine. If there are not enough votes for Gohmert, here is a practical method for ousting the RINO Speaker by maximizing the leverage of a relatively few genuine conservatives.
Since forming a presidential exploratory committee earlier this month, Jeb Bush is being considered a serious Republican candidate for president. But as George Will astutely pointed out last week, Bush has two significant hurdles; his support for Common Core and […]
I am no longer a Republican. John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and their Democrat-lite, RINO Republican establishment have seen to that. They have betrayed their own constituents. They have actively turned against the American people – the very voters who granted them power to do good.
Even before […]
When I was growing up, there were two different political types of people. Those that thought Reagan was a genius and Democrats. If you are under the age of 30, there is a myth that surrounds Ronald Reagan. This myth is partly derived from a term you […]
The 2014 election is over and attention has already turned to 2016. Does the Republican success in this election portend a similarly favorable outcome in two years – as did the Democrat congressional sweep in 2006 herald the election of a Democrat President in 2008? Perhaps. But, […]
Most political eyes now are turned to whether the Republicans will take, or the Democrats hold, a Senate majority. Meanwhile what may be a comparably important election will be conducted, probably next month, mostly out of the public eye.
This is the race between Rep. […]
For starters, Rand is short for Randal, not an allusion to Ayn Rand, after whom Sen. Paul was not named by his libertarian (not Objectivist) father Ron Paul. Reportedly, growing up he was called Randy … until his wife shortened the diminutive to Rand.
Washington, ordinarily, is […]
“Progressives are not in politics to tinker with the existing system although they understand that tinkering and fixing problems along with way will gain them votes. They are in politics to transform the way Americans live…The very grandeur of their ambition turns progressives into zealots.” […]
The Association Game: Is this Ukrainian more like Putin or Poroshenko?
Republican water-carriers can smear the Pauls as isolationists all they want: the notion of the US as “world cop” is still neither constitutional nor moral nor practical.
Contrary to popular political theory and the hopes and wishes of millions of Republican voters, not to mention the strategic blunder of the Republican National Committee (RNC), I predict that without a massive shift in Republican political posture, they will not only lose congress in November, but […]
