We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right so to appropriate a dollar of the public money. — Congressman Davy Crockett

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.

Welfare State Encompasses 56% of Americans

Robert Romano

Don’t think the government is ubiquitous? Consider the following data published by the U.S. Census Bureau. In 2012, 109.6 million Americans were on some form of means-tested welfare, including Medicaid, food stamps and public housing. Another 43.7 million were on Social Security, Medicare, unemployment, and other government programs.

Defunding ObamaCare: Was it Really a Suicide Mission?

Robert Romano

“It was a suicide mission.” That was House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), commenting in a new book on the ill-fated 2013 effort to defund Obamacare by the House of Representatives that led to a partial government shutdown for a couple of weeks. But was it really a suicide mission? Or was it simply the nation’s last chance to stop the health care law before it took effect?

Boehner Border Bill Bites the Dust

Robert Romano

Failing to get the 217 votes needed to pass, Republican leaders on July 31 pulled the $659 million border supplemental off the floor of the House Representatives. Republicans opposed the measure as doing nothing to secure the border or prevent the White House from taking yet more executive actions to grant legal status to illegal immigrants.

Robert Romano

The nation was taken by surprise on July 28 by an Associated Press (AP) report stating that the Obama administration was planning to arbitrarily implement executive action that could suspend most deportations, grant legal status to millions presently here illegally, and excuse visa overstays.

You Can’t Tame God

Population statistics reveal that Muslims make up less than 1% of the American population. Government statistics recently showed that the homosexual population makes up 1.6 % of the American population. Let those numbers sink in. Why do both groups make Christians cower and run for cover?

Not the Pastor America Needs, but the Pastor We Deserve

Steve Deace

From the outside, Joel Osteen lives a life the world covets. There’s just one problem with that. I can’t think of a single truly great figure in the 2,000-year history of Christianity who didn’t pay some kind of worldly price for defending the faith—beginning with Christ himself at the Cross. On the other hand, it seems as if the world is paying Osteen quite handsomely for the self-esteem gospel according to Joel.

Cruz: More RINOs Will Get Hillary Elected

Bob Ellis

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has highlighted the insanity of once more in 2016 allowing the liberal RINO establishment to push candidates on us who have proven they will betray Republican (and American) principles. You know, of course, that Albert Einstein is credited with stating that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

Ben Shapiro at Truth Revolt has an excellent video detailing what we now know really happened in the shooting of St. Michael the Gentle Giant aka. Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.As was the case with the shooting of St. Trayvon of the Blessed Hoodie by "white Hispanic" George Zimmerman, it was virtually nothing like the "mainstream" media and concerned citizens portrayed it to be.

"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
