The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained — George Washington, First Inaugural Address, April 30, 1789

Fundamentally Transforming America, One Community at at Time

Let's just be blunt. If Congressional Republicans do not defund the imminent rulemaking, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing," by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the upcoming continuing resolution, they are utterly insane.

What About the Judicial Filibuster?

Robert Romano

24 new federal judges by Christmas? That’s what outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) wants in the lame duck session of Congress. Faced with an incoming Republican majority, Barack Obama and Harry Reid want to stack the judiciary in yet another egregious power grab.

McConnell Pledges to Use Power of the Purse

Robert Romano

“It takes 60 votes to do a lot of things in the Senate, but there are some things we can do with 51 votes," said Senator Mitch McConnell. If he is truly determined to use the power of the purse, McConnell should get busy in the December funding bill — before the 2016 presidential election cycle consumes the congressional cycle. Take as many bites at the apple as possible.

McConnell Promises to Go After ObamaCare

Robert Romano

In a private meeting with Americans for Limited Government (ALG) staff, senior aides to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) promised that should Republicans reclaim a majority in the Senate on Tuesday, they would use the budget reconciliation process to go after Obamacare.

Republicans Shouldn’t Acquiesce to Obama

Robert Romano

The midterm elections are just a week away, and with most predicting a Republican sweep on November 4, House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy is setting his sights on the 2015 governing agenda. But before a new Congress is sworn in, the government's funding for FY 2015 is due to run out on December 11, and Politico's Jake Sherman reports "[McCarthy] would like to use the lame-duck session to pass a long-term government-funding bill, so Washington can begin focusing on big-picture legislating, instead of just trying to keep government's doors open."

On Course to Never Pay Off National Debt

Robert Romano

We’re more likely to default on our national debt than to ever pay it off. The national debt has increased every single year since 1958 to its current level. Who really believes that trend will be reversed?

Will Republicans Have a Rout in the Senate?

Robert Romano

This is easily one of the most favorable political environments for Republican congressional prospects in quite a long time, particularly on the Senate side of the equation. Yet, if the polls are any indication, at the moment, the landscape appears more mixed.

Why Isn’t Our Govt Protecting Americans from Ebola?

Robert Romano

One of the few constitutionally enumerated responsibilities of the federal government is to secure the nation’s borders and ports of entry, and to provide consistent rules for entering the country, as in the aforementioned clause of Article I, Section 8. The reason for such safeguards is obvious.

Watch Out for the Fall Lame Duck Budget

Robert Romano

Congressional Democrats want to kick the can into the post-election, lame duck period, so they can use another anticipated shutdown to their advantage to achieve their budget priorities without having to worry about voter backlash. Yet, Congressional Republicans would be foolish to accept such a deal. But if House Republicans fear a shutdown hurting their chances in November, expect them to get rolled in budget negotiations.

DOJ Admits: Missing IRS Emails Were Backed Up

Robert Romano

Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search.

America: The GOP is Lying to You

Bob Ellis

This isn't a Democrat saying this. This isn't the "mainstream" media (pardon the redundancy in conjunction with the last sentence) saying this. This isn't even me--who witnessed so much duplicity, hypocrisy, corruption and liberalism within the "Republican" Party in the last four years that I can't carry the water for this pack of liars anymore--saying this.

Epidemic of Spirtual Ebola

Dave Daubenmire

The American Church is hemorrhaging. The foundation upon which all morality springs is cracking like an egg. If Christians can no longer recognize or defend the truth we can expect the bloodletting to continue. Only a super-sized moral tourniquet can stop the oozing from the body of America. Somewhere along the line we stopped thinking generationally.

Honoring Father and Mother

Dave Daubenmire

Have you heard of the Canary in the coal mine? You know it is that allusion to caged canaries that miners would carry down into the mineshafts with them. If dangerous gases such as methane or carbon monoxide leaked into that shaft, the gases would kill the canary before killing the miners. The death of the canary provided a warning to exit the tunnels immediately. Is there a canary in the coalmine for a country or for a society?

ObamaCare is Demonstrably Dishonest

Bill Wilson

Last week, the Supreme Court agreed to hear King v. Burwell — a case which exposes a fatal flaw in Obama's signature legislation. When Obamacare was drafted, the law's health care subsidies (and the taxes collected to pay for them) were explicitly confined to those states establishing their own health care exchanges. That's not a statement of opinion, either, it's written in black and white right there in the law — which expressly limits such subsidies to qualified plans enrolled "through an exchange established by the State."

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
