Mitch McConnell to US governors: Do my job for me

March 23, 2015
Mitch McConnell Chicken Lineup

Well, here’s a little insight into the true lack of leadership we get from Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame member Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-INO KY). In his latest display of fecklessness, Mitch wrote a letter to U.S. governors instructing them that they would be on firm legal footing and would not be violating the law if they refused to formulate plans to implement the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) carbon limits. The EPA is requiring states to use various measures, like improving the efficiency of power plants and reducing power demand, to meet individual emission targets that the EPA calculated…

Cory Gardner wants to arrest others if he fails to do his job

March 16, 2015
Con Man Cory Gardner

“Let’s shake up the Senate.” With those words, Cory Gardner (R-INO CO) promised to be a difference maker if Colorado voters elected him as Senator instead of re-electing Democrat Mark Udall. Unfortunately for those of us who voted for this pathetic excuse of a Republican, we found out that Cory had no intention of shaking things up. Instead, he quickly embraced the Washington establishment and the cojones-less leadership of Mitch McConnell. Heck, he didn’t even wait until he was officially sworn in to show his spinelessness. When Obama was about to announce his unconstitutional executive amnesty in December 2014, Gardner appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe…

ATF - trust me

After receiving an unheard-of amount of negative responses to the idea, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has decided to postpone their proposal to ban certain types of 5.56mm rounds, or .223 caliber, which is a type of ammunition used in the AR-15 rifle. According to the ATF, it “has already received more than 80,000 comments” on the proposed ban, which they have committed to make public “as soon as practicable.” Specifically, the ban applied to M855 “green tip” or SS109″ rounds that contain particular metal cores. In a statement released by the ATF, they said: “Although ATF endeavored…

There you go again, Mitch McConnell

March 10, 2015
GOP spineless

In February, 2013, Mitch McConnell was enshrined into the Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame due to his track record of non-existent leadership when it came to dealing with the budget and the national debt. Well, in the words of the great Ronald Reagan: With everything he needs to do as he promised when he was re-elected, McConnell has already announced a full and unconditional surrender in the upcoming debt ceiling negotiations. Appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation over the weekend, Mickey made it official: “I made it very clear after the November election that we’re certainly not going to shut down the government…

Should Conservatives leave a sinking ship?

March 9, 2015
Bizarro ship is sinking

With the March 3 House Republican surrender on funding for Obama’s executive amnesty program, many conservatives are asking, “Why stay in the Republican Party?” It’s a good question, and one that has no easy or convincing answer at the moment, given that a big segment of the Republican leadership has declared open warfare on the tea party and grassroots activists. When told by Republican Party leaders, “You’re a fringe, and we don’t need you, so go away!” the logical reply is, OK, we’ll leave. But there is another way to look at the problem and another way to think about…
