End the madness! Say NO to Paul Ryan as House Speaker!

October 13, 2015
Paul Ryan - Nope

The “Who will replace John Boehner as Speaker of the House” saga continues in Washington, even though Congress is on another recess after having just returned from another recess. Good work if you can get it. Just as they did when they tried to coronate  Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as the next RINO to wield the gavel of power, many of the establishment Republicans are spending their time away from Washington trying to convince us that Paul Ryan (R-WI) is the savior America and the Republican party needs. You remember Paul Ryan, don’t you? He’s the loser who served as the…

Replacing Speaker Boehner: Easy as A – B – McC

October 8, 2015
McCarthy and Boehner

As we consider a replacement for John Boehner as Speaker of the House, it’s really important to remember the A-B-McCs — Anybody But McCarthy! And while the odds are against us, the change we seek can begin with the House Freedom Caucus. If not now, when? After all, if they can’t block John Boehner 2.0 (Kevin McCarthy) from ascending to the top job, they should just throw in the towel and quit. As Daniel Horowitz tells us on Conservative Review, the problems with the Republican Party run far deeper than John Boehner, and they won’t be solved with this leadership…

Trump tax plan

Donald Trump has shaken up today’s craven political establishment like Tom Paine shook up the Tories of colonial America. He has irreverently proposed genuine solutions to the invasion of “illegals.” He has attacked the poltroons of Washington and the talking heads of the media. He speaks rudely and boldly. The question now is, has he also been daring enough to put forth a bold tax reform plan? The answer is yes and no. Trump’s tax plan has numerous great features, but it also has one very bad feature. Let’s examine the good points first, and then tackle the bad aspect…

The mass shooting in Colorado that never was

Gun free zone 2

Three days ago President Obama delivered somber remarks in the aftermath of the mass shootings at Umpqua Community College near Roseburg Oregon. “The reporting is routine,” Obama said. “My response here at this podium ends up being routine, the conversation in the aftermath of it. We’ve become numb to this.” In some regards he’s right. CNN reported that Obama has now delivered statements regarding (domestic) gun violence 15 times in his near 7 years in office. By any standard of measure – liberal, conservative or ‘other’- that’s 15 times too many. But there’s a stunning gap in Presidential time-and-again remarks,…

Stemming the tide of over-regulation by big government

October 6, 2015
Thomas Jefferson - too much government

The reason most often cited for the success of the nonpolitical candidates is the frustration with Washington; the sense that the system is broken. Voters feel that we have no control and that government has gone wild. Even people who don’t watch the news or closely follow politics are aware of the “overreach.” It seems that, perhaps, the messages the outsiders have been heralding on the trail has caught on.
