Conservatives Oppose McConnell’s Obamacare Bill

Mitch McConnell’s Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 is a Band-Aid when an amputation is needed. This is not what Congress has promised the American people and will only pave the way for a government-run, single payer system that Republicans will own. The Senate should, simply put, start over.

Senate Obamacare Repeal Or Just Cosmetic Surgery?

RINOs Declare War On Trump’s Conservative Budget

How Mitch McConnell Won the Battle to Confirm Gorsuch

Fred Barnes, Weekly Standard

Rather than scrapping tradition, the end of the judicial filibuster restores a longstanding tradition of not using it against nominees for judgeships. That tradition was tossed out in 2003 when Democrats began filibustering Republican nominees. That was new. The old way, the traditional way, was followed in the confirmation battle over Clarence Thomas in 1990. To say he was a highly controversial pick is putting it mildly. Despite this, no one called for a filibuster or said there's a rule that says 60 votes are required. Thomas was confirmed, 52-48.

Any reason for nerves in Gorsuch vote today?

The good news is it looks like Republicans are finally ready to show some backbone and call the Democrats’ bluff on the filibuster. If going “nuclear” means honoring truth, respectability and the Founding Fathers’ original conception of how the system should function we should have done it long ago.

Only One Thing Missing From President Trump’s Speech Before Congress

But "what he's saying makes everything harder." His tweets and comments often make it "harder to achieve what you want to achieve."

Viguerie: One More Campaign Promise Kept

CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie said in reaction to President Trump's nomination to the Supreme Court of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, "The liberal special interest groups will demand and insist that the Democratic Senators go all out to keep Judge Gorsuch off the Supreme Court. This battle will be unlike any court battle in modern times. And when the battle is done conservatives will win and liberals will be exhausted and weakened for the next battle."

Will Trump’s Defense Picks Back-Up Trump’s Anti-War Policies?

To find senior defense and national security officials who share his views, President-elect Trump may have to look beyond the obvious choices who, though undoubtedly talented, have a long association with the failed policies he has promised to rethink.

If the GOP turns on itself and its base at this point, it will do untold damage to itself for years to come. There won't be any conservatism, period. We will be a liberal country.

The Fourth of July Doesn’t Work on Democrats

Researchers at Harvard University found that celebrating the July 4th holiday commemorating the announcement of the Declaration of Independence may still be serving its intended purpose – promoting patriotism -- and the good news is it only seems to work on Republicans.
