    Sen. Jon Kyl said yesterday that a Republican-led filibuster would be on the table to block immigration legislation supported by congressional Democrats and President Bush that grants citizenship rights to illegal aliens. "It would be in order," the Arizona Republican told radio host Laura Ingraham yesterday. "My only question is whether we've got the votes to do it." The comments highlight the deep divide between most congressional Republicans and the White House over an explosive political issue. And, coming from the No. 4 Republican in the chamber, the tough talk suggests the final two years of Mr. Bush's presidency could...

    Every day, I'm asked whom I'm supporting for President in 2008. I've looked over the potential candidates, and on the Republican side, I believe the best, by far, is Rudy Giuliani, who took the first step toward a run, yesterday, with an exploratory committee. (On the Democratic side, the best guy who's been talked about as a Presidential contender is Senator Evan Bayh from Indiana, who truly understands the Islamic threat and is a more moderate Democrat--which is why he'll never get the nomination.) Yes, I'm pro-life and against gay rights, where Giuliani shares neither of my views on these...

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I hope that the carnage experienced last night leaves a very bitter taste in your mouths and that you awaken this morning wiser than when you went to bed. The American people have spoken and they have chosen a new direction not because the Democrats offer anything better but because you failed to offer leadership. People crave leadership and if they do not get it they will latch on to the first person or group they think offers it. Germans craved leadership so badly they elected Hitler to lead them because there was no one who stood...

    ACU Releases 2005 Congressional Ratings ALEXANDRIA, VA— The American Conservative Union, the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative lobbying organization, today released its 2005 “Rating of Congress,” the definitive conservative assessment of the federal legislative branch. ACU has rated every member of the House and Senate since 1971, making the latest guide its 35th edition. The purpose of the “Rating” is to inform the public, in as unbiased a method as possible, exactly where individual senators and congressmen stand on the ideological spectrum. “In the House, 38 Republicans scored a perfect 100% conservative rating in 2005, including newly elected House...

    Since "Free Republic is an online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web. We're working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America.", I and others think it's a good idea to centralize what the goes on in the Senate (or House). So if you see something happening on the Senate/House floor and you don't want to start a new thread to ask if anyone else just heard what you heard, you can leave a short note on who said what and about...

    Tomorrow morning Survey USA is putting out a comprehensive poll of all 50 states about the race for President in 2008. They will put numerous potential candidates head-to-head to see who fares best. But I want the opinions of those deep in the heart of the conservative blogosphere. Which Republican, any Republican, do you wish to see? From Pat Buchanan to Linc Chaffey (oops, he joined the Dark Side this week) tell me who you want and why? Same with the Democrats.
