    A Republican congressman from Colorado on Monday declared that the Republican Party is “dead,” arguing it “no longer has a vision for a better America.” In an op-ed for The Denver Post, Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) said the party that once had “the blood of the people” coursing “through its veins” is not pursing conservative policies. “After eight years of assuring that unified Republican government would allow for conservative policy, our Republican Congress has accomplished little, except for passing a spending bill that shackles the aspirations of future generations with crippling debt,” Buck wrote.

    I supported the American Health Care Act last Friday because it was the right vote. I didn’t begin as a big fan, but I ended up satisfied that America needed this bill to start a process to repair our healthcare system. Yes, I’m a conservative. I pal around with those liberty-loving Freedom Caucus guys. I get better grades on conservative scorecards than I ever received in college. And frankly, if you asked the Speaker, I think he’d tell you I’m a bit of a right-wing rabble-rouser. I supported the AHCA, and will continue to support it, because a yes vote...

    Conditions couldn't have been better Saturday for deer hunting, with frigid air keeping Friday's sleet and snow in a frozen state on the ground in Jefferson County, Miss. A New Orleans woman says all that ice is partly responsible for her killing the biggest deer of her life. Marni Demelo, 29, told ms-sportsman.com she heard the deer moving through the woods adjacent to a food plot she was hunting, and had time to prepare herself for what she hoped would be a shot at a big buck.-snip-Demelo knew the buck was one she would be proud of, but didn't realize...

    Rep. Lamar Smith is pushing ahead in his committee's effort to hold Hillary Clinton accountable for her private e-mail server while she was secretary of state. On Thursday, Smith, chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, announced that he is going to hold the Platte River Networks, which set up and maintained Clinton’s server, in contempt of Congress when lawmakers return to Washington following the November election. “Platte River continues to obstruct our committee’s investigation into the possible misuse security of former Secretary Clinton’s private e-mail server,” Smith told a packed press conference on Capitol Hill."

    Darrell Collison, of Charity, Missouri, may have already shot the biggest buck in the state this year. Just 3 days into the bow-hunting season, Darrell has bagged himself a buck that is making waves in the hunting world. The buck was green scored at 153 typical and non-typical 220 4/8 gross and 208 1/8 net with 29 points, however, the Dallas County game warden later came up with 36 points. The pictures of this buck will send chills down your spine, don’t believe us? Check them out:

    After calling for a fast as Indiana headed to the polls, Glenn Beck has finally weighed in on the news that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has canceled his campaign after losing the Indiana primary to Donald Trump. Beck, an ardent supporter of Cruz, campaigned tirelessly for the Texas senator throughout the primary season, starting first in Iowa and concluding in Indiana yesterday.

    GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4)– Colorado Congressman Ken Buck has thrown his support behind fellow Republican Ted Cruz for president. Buck, a Republican representing Northern Colorado, announced his endorsement on Wednesday. He will also serve as the Colorado chairman for Cruz’s campaign. “We need a strong, conservative leader in the White House,” said Buck in a statement. “Ted Cruz is that leader. He has consistently and passionately fought hard against the Washington establishment in order to restore the power back to the American people. We need Ted in 2016 in order to help restore America back to the principles that made this...

    An Oklahoma girl may make it into the record books after killing a 16-point buck last weekend. Micalah Millard, who is just 14-years-old, was hunting with her father when she spotted a large buck through cameras set up on her grandfather’s ranch. Hours later, the buck reappeared. “I was surprised that I made the shot and hit him,” Micalah told KJRH. “She has killed deer before, but nothing like this. Nobody I know has ever killed anything like this,” said Malachi, Micalah’s father. Now, she must wait 60 days to wait for an official score, but the buck will likely...

    What does it take to get fired from a job in the Barack Obama administration? Only in this White House could a Cabinet Secretary get not just one but two public presidential statements of confidence as internal documents emerge showing that an agency knew about fraud, and left the problem to such an extent that people died while waiting for medical care. This administration has long had trouble holding itself accountable for its failures, perhaps especially for the more spectacular disasters. .. Despite her failure to oversee the Obama administration’s central domestic policy achievement and to know that it would...

    Vox attempts to explain the media narrative of the day—that "the Tea Party will lose three primaries"—but this is a subject that defies simple Voxplaining. Here was the original lede: After some Twitter-shaming, the article has been edited and the "Tea Party" candidates are now called "right wing." That's a blander term that covers basically everyone who irritates the Republican Party's establishment. Still, the back-of-hand calculation that "the GOP would control the Senate today if not for the Tea Party" has never seemed right to me. Below, I've ranked the candidates mentioned by Vox. No. 5 had the least claim...

    The Buck Who Carried His Rival’s Head While it may look like a grisly trophy, the story behind the picture of the antler-locked bucks above is one of survival and endurance. I recently spoke with Luke Laha, a wildlife management instructor in Kansas, about how he and his students rescued an antler-locked deer that had been carrying around the head of his rival. So how did this deer come to be wearing such bizarre headgear? Laha said that there was once a body attached to that head, before the coyotes came. Laha works as an instructor at Pratt Community College’s...

    RedState Readers, there was a time when we could ask you to open your wallets for solid candidates and within hours goals would be met. We did that recently with Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia and you showed just how quickly you could raise money. But people still think you guys are not as engaged as you once were. So I have a challenge for you this morning — show the world conservatives are not disengaged. But more importantly, show the world you’ll do what it takes to fund reinforcements for Ted Cruz in the United States Senate. There are two...

    The Obama administration's handling of its multiple scandals paints a picture of those who believe they are above the law. There's a pattern of arrogance, dismissiveness, denial, scapegoating, stonewalling, lying, false professions of ignorance, assurances of accountability and punishing whistle-blowers. The numerous parallels in the administration's handling of the Fast and Furious and Internal Revenue Service scandals alone are too striking to be coincidental. The recurring theme is that the buck never stops at the Obama White House. With Fast and Furious, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives adopted an ill-conceived, indefensible plan to deliberately walk guns into...

"Well, here's what I know, we were just talking about responsibility and as president of the United States, it's pretty clear to me that I'm responsible for folks who are working in the federal government and you know, Harry Truman said the buck stops with you," Obama said. "The Buck stops with YOU !" Does it ever; about $140,000 per taxpayer on our $16 trillion dollar debt. In actuality, a 'one-percenter' is on the hook...

    The Hartland-Lakeside School District, about 30 miles west of Milwaukee in tiny Hartland, Wis., had a problem in its collective bargaining contract with the local teachers union. The contract required the school district to purchase health insurance from a company called WEA Trust. The creation of Wisconsin's largest teachers union -- "WEA" stands for Wisconsin Education Association -- WEA Trust made money when union officials used collective bargaining agreements to steer profitable business its way. The problem for Hartland-Lakeside was that WEA Trust was charging significantly higher rates than the school district could find on the open market.
