    ...No two men now live, fellow-citizen, perhaps it may be doubted whether any two men have ever lived in one age, who, more than those we now commemorate, have impressed on mankind their own opinions more deeply into the opinions of others, or given a more lasting direction to the current of human thought. Their work doth not perish with them. The tree which they assisted to plant will flourish, although they water it and protect it no longer; for it has struck its roots deep, it has sent them to the very centre; no storm, not of force to...

    Imagine for a moment that come November of 2016 just as the presidential election was about to take place Hillary Clinton dropped out of the race as the Democratic nominee and President Barack Obama postponed the election indefinitely. There’d be insurrection in the streets. Yet that is exactly what Speaker Boehner and the cabal that currently runs the House Republican Conference did when Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy dropped out of the Speaker race last week. And this effort to fix the election for Speaker is being actively abetted by the establishment media, who act like they don’t care or see...
  • House conservatives spurn McCarthy, flex muscle ahead of speaker vote

    The Washington Post ^ | October 7, 2015 | Mike DeBonis
    A group of hard-line conservatives threatened to upend the Republican race to succeed outgoing House Speaker John A. Boehner, announcing on Wednesday it will throw its support behind a little-known Florida lawmaker to become the next speaker. The House Freedom Caucuss backing of Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.) ahead of a crucial internal party vote Thursday deeply complicates Majority Leader Kevin O. McCarthys bid to succeed Boehner. The group counts enough members about 40 to deny McCarthy the majority of the whole House he would need to claim the speakers chair. But in an opening for the California Republican,...

    The Washington Times ^ | October 7, 2015 | S.A. Miller & Tom Howell Jr.
    The conservative House Freedom Caucus announced Wednesday that it would back Rep. Daniel Webster to be the next speaker, which would provide enough support to the Republican conference to deny the position to establishment favorite Kevin McCarthy, the current majority leader. Emerging from a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill, conservative lawmakers pledged to present a united front in support of Mr. Webster, Florida Republican, signaling that the same rift in the conference that forced Speaker John A. Boehner to resign would continue to roil the largest Republican majorities in the House since the 1920s. Members of the Freedom Caucus, led...

    ouse Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy may have emerged as the frontrunner in the race for speaker of the House, but Florida Rep. Daniel Webster is emboldening his Republican colleagues to buck leaderships status quo in favor of a new approach to legislating. Speaker John Boehners decision to retire sent Republicans scrambling to decide who would run for the leadership positions. So far, Webster is facing McCarthy and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, in the race for the top Republican leadership position. But with the House Republican conference gathering on Thursday, more contenders could emerge before then. Though McCarthy has been considered...

    Rep. Daniel Webster officially announced his bid for House speaker Tuesday morning, two days before the House GOP is slated to vote on a replacement to retiring Speaker John A. Boehner. Mr. Webster, a third-term Republican from Florida, joins Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Utah Republican, as officially announced challengers hoping to deny the speakership to Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the current No. 2 who had seemed on a glide-path to ascend to the Houses top post.

    Conservatives arent finished opposing Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)35% . Neither, apparently, is Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL)63% . In an interview, the Florida Republican says he is still working to build support for a member-driven, principle-based House and his supporters, including key conservatives such as Rep. Steve King (R-IA)77% , arent backing down either. Several right-wing dissidents who voted against their partys sitting speaker faced a severe backlash following the event, and GOP moderates have worked since then to build clout. So far thats mostly involved taking down a key pro-life bill on the eve of a massive anti-abortion...

  • Can the Governor of New York and 2016 Presidential Hopeful Actually Be this Thick?

    In reading up on Governor Cuomo's new gun legislation in New York, I came across a rather startling statement. Startling in it's pure and utter stupidity. And in what Cuomo termed "the Webster Provision" a reference to the Dec. 24 killings of two firefighters fatally shot while responding to a call in a suburb of Rochester the murder of a first responder will become a felony punishable by life in prison without parole. That's right, a future Presidential hopeful for 2016 is actually bragging about a provision in his gun law named specifically for one individual gun man,...

    College chess champs uproot, move to MissouriAssociated Press Fri, Apr 6, 2012 COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) It was one of the most brazen moves in the chess world since the Najdorf Sicilian Defense, perhaps even the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. Fresh off her second straight national championship, the legendary chess coach at Texas Tech is jumping to another school and taking all the top members of the team with her. No one has ever seen anything like it in intercollegiate competition, not even among powerhouse basketball and football teams that are worth many millions of dollars. Similar deals are not uncommon...

    Dan Webster would be hard-pressed to make himself heard in a library. So the soft-spoken congressman didn't have a chance Tuesday when his town-hall meeting turned into a political food fight. It seems liberal activists learned a lesson from the tea party. They came; they shouted; they disrupted. It worked for the tea party in attacking Democrats over ObamaCare. And it is working for liberals in attacking Republicans over RyanCare. The Webster town hall was covered by National Public Radio and reported not only on our front page but also on the front page of The New York Times.We love...

    Noah Webster first published his Dictionary on APRIL 14, 1828. This 26-year project with 30,000 new definitions, standardized spelling and gave American English its identity. Proving unprofitable, the rights were purchased after his death by George and Charles Merriam. In the preface of his original edition, Noah Webster wrote: In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructedNo truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the...

    Central Florida's largest newspaper is endorsing challenger Dan Webster over Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson in the 8th Congressional District race, calling Grayson's antics -- including misrepresenting Webster's discussion of the Bible -- an "embarrassment" for Floridians. The Orlando Sentinel editors wrote in Friday's edition that Grayson "carries the hyper-partisan fever" and Webster is the "antidote."

    Freshman Democrat Congressman Alan Grayson, who recently warned that people would become cannibals should the government spend less money, is in the race of his life against Republican challenger Daniel Webster in Florida. Last month Grayson released a fraudulent campaign ad against Webster that was almost universally condemned. Well, it looks like Grayson did not learn his lesson and is at it again. It has been revealed that late last month, the Grayson campaign launched a group on Facebook called "Mind of Daniel Webster," which was intentionally made to look real. For example, looking at the "group information" at first...
