Her Disqus account is active, and features snark, misdirects, sarcasm, insults, and most of all, prose designed to demoralize and demonstrate the complete impotence of whatever group she is berating at the moment. The prose is designed to cause depression and dejection."

    CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO According to Brooklyn Borough President, the spirit of Selma is about adding Muslim holidays to the school calendar. According to Obama, it’s about replacing black workers with illegal aliens through amnesty. Obama invoked the “spirit of Selma” to justify his executive amnesty policies Friday in an interview with Sirius XM’s Joe Madison.“The notion that some kid that was brought here when he was two or three years old might somehow be deported at the age of 20 or 25 even though they’ve grown up as American, that’s not who we are,” Obama said.“That’s not...

    Solicitor General Donald Verrilli won Wednesday’s oral arguments in King v. Burwell, the latest challenge to the Affordable Care Act. Or at least that’s what the wisdom of the crowd is telling us.When we previewed the case, the predictors at FantasySCOTUS saw it as a 5-4 reversal, with Chief Justice John Roberts essentially sitting on the fence. (A reversal could result in the loss of billions of dollars in federal subsidies that are helping millions of Americans in more than 30 states purchase health insurance.) Now, they see it as a 6-3 affirm — in support of the government....

Jihadists are conducting a genocide against Christians across the world and US politicians are passing resolutions prohibiting criticism of genocide, gender apartheid, creed apartheid, misogyny and Islamic Jew-hatred. Islamic supremacists are embedding themselves in school boards, town councils, etc., to impose Islam on secular American society.

    Wisconsin lawmakers voted along party lines Friday to make their state the 25th to enact right-to-work legislation, pushing a fast-tracked bill through the Assembly after an overnight debate and sending it on to Gov. Scott Walker for his promised signature.. Still stinging from Walker's signature 2011 law that stripped most public workers of nearly all their union rights, Democrats railed against the bill through the night. One after another, they delivered rambling speeches in which they tried to persuade Republicans to send the bill back to a committee for revision.

    MADISON, Wis. — Former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold is doing more than dropping hints that he may seek another run at the seat from which he unceremoniously dumped during the conservative revolution of 2010. Multiple media accounts assert the Wisconsin Democrat has been “reaching out” to supporters — possibly potential donors — in recent weeks to feel out a 2016 Senate bid against first-term Republican Sen. Ron Johnson. But is the man whose name is synonymous with campaign finance reform and expansive political speech policing violating the long-standing federal Hatch Act, which limits executive branch employees like Feingold from politicking...

    One of the many reasons constitutional conservatives consider President Obama a threat to the Constitution is his disdain for the separation of powers, illustrated most recently in his plan to bypass the Senate in making an arms deal with Iran. The Framers understood that throughout history, the real threat to God-given liberty had been centralized, unchecked governmental power. As such, they crafted our system in a way to limit the consolidation of that power, especially in the federal government. They did this in a number of ways, including establishing a system of federalism, which divided powers between the federal and...

    Tea Party Republicans contemplating a bid to oust Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) shouldn't count on Democrats to help them unseat the Speaker. And without their support, there is no chance to topple Boehner in this Congress. A number of right-wing Republicans, long-wary of Boehner's commitment to GOP efforts attacking President Obama's policy priorities, have openly considered a coup in an attempt to transfer the gavel into more conservative hands. But Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they'd rather see Boehner remain atop the House than replace him with a more conservative Speaker who would almost certainly be less willing...

    Two weeks ago former NYC Mayor Rudy Guiliani took a lot of heat from the media when he said President Obama doesn't love America during a fundraiser for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. It turns out, many Americans agree with Guiliani's assessment. According to a new Fox News poll, the vast majority of Americans believe the United States is the greatest country in the world, but a smaller majority believe President Obama feels the same way. The new poll also finds the numbers saying Obama is patriotic, honest or a strong leader have all declined in the past few years. More...

    Supporters of the “Affordable Care Act” have been rather glum of late. Since the Supreme Court agreed to hear King v. Burwell, a lawsuit that challenges the Obama administration’s decision to funnel insurance subsidies through federal exchanges established in the 36 states that refused to create PPACA “marketplaces,” they have rather ironically bemoaned the possibility that five unelected justices could do irreparable damage to the law with one “wrong ruling.” Consequently, they have desperately grasped at a thin straw tossed their way by Justice Anthony Kennedy during Wednesday’s oral arguments about the case. In an exchange with Michael Carvin, who...

    In the coming days, much attention will be focused on the GOP plans to replace Obamacare, especially if the Supreme Court invalidates the federal health care subsidies in 34 states. Unfortunately, the first plan out of the gate, introduced by Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Richard Burr (R-NC) and Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI), is a pale-pastel version of Obamacare. It maintains some of the costly insurance mandates, enshrines much of the dependency of Obamacare without a commensurate reduction in dependency on other programs, such as Medicaid and S-CHIP, and maintains some of the Obamacare tax increases. It is therefore woefully...

    A new bombshell report from Politico found that House Speaker John Boehner had several days of secret negotiations with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the recently emboldened former Speaker, leading up to his decision to flip-flop and fund President Obama’s executive amnesty—including a pre-hashed out deal to use the hoopla around Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Tuesday address to Congress over Iran’s nuclear ambitions as political cover to sneak in the extraordinarily controversial vote. Even with the bombshell report, however, Boehner’s office continues to deny any deal took place. “It was Monday at 5:30 p.m. when Pelosi and Boehner agreed that...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Bruised but undeterred, some of the far-right Republicans who picked a fight in Congress and lost this week over funding the U.S. domestic security agency say they're just getting started. The views of a handful of first-term conservatives who spoke with Reuters after the Department of Homeland Security battle suggest more conflict among Republicans lies ahead. At the core of these House of Representatives members' defiance is a conviction that their duty as lawmakers lies first with constituents and the Constitution, while House Speaker John Boehner's agenda comes further down the list. For Boehner, who was stunningly...

    House Speaker John Boehner probably thought he would get away with it. I’m sure he expected the noise surrounding Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Congress would allow him to surrender the fort on immigration without anyone noticing. He could simply wait until the Democrats started hitching up their panties and goose stepping around in front of the cameras because that dirty Israeli hurt the delicate feelings of their beloved President Barack Obama, and then he’d wave through Obama’s 5 million or so new best friends. I’m certain Boehner and his fellow globalists-first-Republicans-second-and-Americans-a-distant-third honestly believed we’d be so transfixed...

Lewis. In the wake of president Barack Obama’s comments at the National Prayer Breakfast that smeared Christianity by equating the “Crusades and the Inquisition…slavery and Jim Crow” to the violence committed in the name of Islam by jihadists, Obama created the narrative. His tactic was deliberate, knowing the response would provoke Christians and immediately put them on the defensive having to explain why a christian civilized morality...

The suit will be filed "very shortly," lawyer Anthony Gray said at a news conference, and will include evidence that will present a "more clear, more accurate picture about what took place that day."

Obama’s amnesty plan is to use illegal aliens as “seedlings,” said the federal officials. They will “navigate, not assimilate,” as they “take over the host,” create a “country within a country” and start “pushing the citizens into the shadows.” Welcome to the “fundamental transformation” of America.

    Wayne LaPierre has an extremely important job, as head of the NRA. He is de facto the No. 1 spokesman for gun rights in the country. And gun rights are widely misunderstood. They have to be defended, or explained. The Second Amendment has to be explained. There are lots of people irreconcilably hostile to gun rights, that’s true. But plenty of people, believe me, are confused, or simply ignorant. They are reachable. Pro-gunners should not write them off. Here at CPAC, when LaPierre speaks of gun rights, he is on very solid ground. He knows the subject, definitely. (He’d better!)...

    Pro-lifers are concerned about the commitment of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, to ending abortion. In a "Fox News Sunday" interview, Walker said he was pro-life but sounded dipassionate about ending abortion if he were elected president. During his reelection campaign, host Chris Wallace noted, Walker ran an ad calling abortion an "agonizing choice" and said he supported legislation that "leaves the final decision to a woman and her doctor." "Do you believe," Wallace asked, "that a woman has a right to end a pregnancy at any point during those nine months?" Walker answered that he's...

    The White House claim that the ammunition for the popular AR-15 rifle should be banned as part of a “common sense” effort to protect police officers’ lives is being derided by police officers themselves as a shameful lie. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said this week that the .223-caliber M855 ball should be banned because it can penetrate an officer’s soft armor and can be fired not just from sporting rifles but “easily concealable weapons.”

    The House Freedom Caucus doesn’t have a Web site. It’s not completely clear exactly who belongs to the group. But in the just-completed fight over Homeland Security funding, it was hard to miss the influence of the insurgent conservative bloc as it clashed with GOP leadership. The small group of far-right renegades has emerged as the latest embodiment of the internal GOP resistance to House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio); as a general rule, they are unpredictable, opaque and completely unwilling to back down from any fight against President Obama and his agenda. As the unified Republican majority looks to...

    The lawsuit brought against the state claims sheriffs are faced with a "crisis of conscience" A group of sheriffs will file a lawsuit Thursday against Colorado for its legal marijuana law. The lawsuit says legalizing pot on a state level while it’s still illegal on a federal one creates a “crisis of conscience,” USA Today reports. Colorado is “asking every peace officer to violate their oath,” Larimer County, Colo., Sheriff Justin Smith, the lead plaintiff in the suit, said. “What we’re being forced to do … makes me ineligible for office. Which constitution are we supposed to uphold?”

    Congress has proved unwilling to fight the president and stand firm for defunding his immigration amnesty plan. It appears that there is nothing this president can do, no matter how far outside his executive authority, that can goad our supine lawmakers into taking action to protect the rule of law, our constitutional system of government, or the nation’s economic well-being. Unlawful, unconstitutional, unilateral action has become the hallmark of this president and his administration. In one action after another, he has ignored the restraints and limits imposed on the president by the Constitution, bending, changing, and rewriting federal laws according...

    Sen. Ted Cruz's book, "A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Miracle of America," is coming out this summer. HarperCollins Publishers told The Associated Press on Thursday that it has set a June 30 release date for the book, for which Cruz reached a reported seven-figure deal last year. Cruz, a first-term Texas Republican considering a presidential run in 2016, said in a recent telephone interview that in a time of "extraordinary challenges" he wants to tell his story and share his message of free markets and constitutional liberties. "Men and women are frustrated with career politicians in both parties who...

    The Prince George’s County branch of the NAACP is threatening to sue the local school district over a plan to start two schools for an influx of immigrants in recent years. “Segregation was eliminated back in 1954. When you have two schools that are designed to deal with one group based around basically language as the criteria for the schools, than that’s a form of discrimination,” Bob Ross, president of the local NAACP, told WAMU.org. “It’s not about force, it’s not about choice, it’s about the law,” he said. Ross is upset because a plan underway in Prince George’s County...

    Judge Andrew Napolitano tonight weighed in on the revelation that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton conducted all government business on her personal email account. “She’s in a lot of trouble legally,” he said. If Clinton retained classified emails on her personal account and server, Napolitano said she arguably violated a statute which prohibits retaining classified information in a non-governmental, non-secure way – a misdemeanor charge. Clinton also faces a potential felony if she knowingly and willfully destroyed or concealed government records, Napolitano said. The felony is punishable by up to three years in jail and disqualification from holding public...

    Head of Ł2.3 billion trust says wealth preservation is the key Lord Jacob Rothschild has warned investors that the world is mired in the most dangerous geopolitical situation since World War II. The 78-year-old chairman of RIT Capital Partners, a Ł2.3bn trust, used the organization’s annual report to caution savers that the focus of the firm would be the preservation of shareholders’ capital and not short term gains. Rothschild said that “a geopolitical situation perhaps as dangerous as any we have faced since World War II” has created a “difficult economic background” of which investors should be wary.

    If you are a thinking Republican—and those are rare these days—it has dawned on you that voting for a Republican majority in Congress has not accomplished much. GOP House Speaker John Boehner allowed a vote to fund the Department of Homeland Security, which effectively rubber-stamps President Obama’s executive amnesty for 5 million illegal immigrants. It passed with mostly Democratic votes. The Congressional Republican leadership just endorsed Obama’s dangerous claim that Congress is irrelevant the moment it asserts its constitutional role as a co-equal branch with the executive. So, what was all the hoopla about last November when Republicans swept into...

    Republicans have always been driven to sell out their principles based on unfounded and irrational fear of outcomes. However, since winning the 2014 midterm elections, they have taken this irrational fear to a new level. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal even calls it post-election stress syndrome. During the ‘90s, with a popular president in the White House and a soaring economy, Republicans had more courage to challenge a sitting Democrat president than the current generation of GOPers – even though this president is extremely radical, reckless, lawless, and unpopular. Back in 1995, Republicans were willing to battle the president on budget...

    t week’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). He’s too busy with his day job as Minority Leader of the United States Senate. What, you thought that with Republicans taking that chamber in January following the historic November election that Mr. McConnell is Majority Leader? No, that would be Harry Reid, the once and former Democratic Majority Leader, who obviously still calls the shots in the World’s Greatest Deliberative Body. There’s no other way to explain the Republican-dominated Senate’s 68-31 vote passage of a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) without addressing President Obama’s illegal granting of amnesty to...
