Two establishment Republican Senators have defected and plan to vote NO on the nomination of Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary. Their defection is truly bizarre because Ms. DeVos, at least on the surface, looks like President Trump's most establishment-friendly Cabinet nominee.
Montenegro is a quaint, but geopolitically irrelevant. Balkan state. If Montenegro's admission to NATO is approved by the full Senate, Americans will have yet another essentially useless defense dependent, this one a corrupt, long-time gangster state.
When we look at this week’s protests during the Trump -- Pence inauguration and their potential for violence we need to see most protesters for what they are; victims of Far-Left propaganda and the cult of political correctness.

Lee Edwards is not just an historian of the conservative movement, he’s someone who helped shape it. Goldwater, National Review, Young Americans for Freedom, Bill Buckley, Russell Kirk, Human Events, he's been part of it all.
“We’re just thrilled with what we see from the transition, it gets better every day. To the extent Heritage is involved in it, hats off to Heritage,” said Richard Viguerie. “Conservatives would expect Heritage to be at the center of anything that’s important to dealing with conservative issues, causes, the movement.”
In a more than 7,200 word essay for National Affairs journal, Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham urged the new Repub. members of Congress to stand firm in their conservative ideals ahead of the 2016 presidential election cycle.
As members of the House and Senate prepare to vote on the annual National Defense Authorization Act, it appears the bill will be saddled with extraneous non-defense measures. This threatens the integrity of both defense policy and the NDAA process.
Leading conservatives are voicing opposition to a plan that would avoid a gov't shutdown by funding most of the gov't through next Sept. The lawmakers described the plan as a concession and called on House R's to only agree to a short-term funding bill for the gov't.
Obama's White House staff has admitted that many illegals who will be protected from deportation by Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty plan will be eligible to receive a “wide array” of government benefits, including Social Security and Medicare. The admission verifies that, once again, Americans are being fed a lie by Barack Obama.

"The issue of religious liberty has come to the forefront and it’s important that we understand this is not merely the 'freedom to worship.' Individuals should be free to work, speak, and serve according to their deeply held beliefs throughout their lives."

Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint is the de facto leader of the conservative movement because he understands that, while the establishment media and big-government Republicans have done a good job of blaming conservatives for Republican losses, the reality is voters consistently reject big-government, content-free Republicans.

The most prolific serial killer didn’t put on a mask, or send cryptic letters to papers. He opened an office and let his victims come to him. He kept babies' feet as trophies. We cannot fight evil in this world without staring it in the face.
