Maybe Now Congress Will Rein In The Tech Lords

It's good and long overdue that the GOP leadership finally figured out that you don’t feed your enemies – but the advertising money they are withholding from Twitter is a rounding error to these giant tech companies. What is really needed is serious, sustained and vigorously executed litigation and enforcement of anti-trust laws and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Fiscal Conservatism, R.I.P.

Rachel Bovard, American Greatness

House conservatives have been undermined at every step by Senate Republicans, who appear to have virtually no interest in restoring fiscal sanity. The majority party in the Senate dismissed the White House’s suggested $150 billion in spending offsets, opting instead to side with House Democrats in a paltry $77 billion in offsets whose application are delayed long enough to ensure they will most likely never take effect. The state of fiscal conservatism has been on the decline in the last five years, but this budget deal officially represents its funeral. The party that gave us “cut, cap, and balance” is a shadow of its former self.

GOP List Of Shame On Budget Vote

From our perspective the spending deal was no victory, but another “fear The Turtle” moment in which the not-so-subtle big spending hand of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell manipulated the White House and the House Republican Leadership into once again abandoning any pretense of fiscal restraint.

Border Wall Big Win, But Not Fundamental

President Trump and conservatives won a big victory in the Supreme Court’s Wall ruling and in the otherwise disastrous spending bill, but we must be prepared to renew the immigration fight when Congress returns in September and takes-up the next round of spending bills.

What Do You Call A One-Legged Stool?

Principles matter in elections, and with all four legs of the 2016 big table coalition working full throttle on his behalf Donald Trump is a shoo-in for reelection, but a stool or table supported only by the one leg of Donald Trump’s outsized personality is likely to crash on Election Day.

Conservatives Oppose Trillion Dollar Spending Boondoggle

The Trump administration projected in March that this year’s deficit will hit $1.1 trillion, up from last year’s deficit of $779 billion – a figure comparable to the Obama-era deficit. After months of urging congressional and administration negotiators to prioritize reductions in spending, the Conservative Action Project has come out in opposition to this irresponsible bipartisan budget deal.

Trump Sucked Into McConnell Spending Betrayal

The voters who want fiscal responsibility who powered the Tea Party Wave and the Trump Movement haven’t gone away. While they may grudgingly support President Trump in 2020 against a Far-Left progressive Democrat, congressional Republicans who think they can spend their way to reelection will face the wrath of those voters.

Tucker Carlson Is Right, But Who Is Responsible For This Disaster?

Tucker Carlson was right, “Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country.” And if Tucker is right, it is fair to ask who is responsible for this civilization-level disaster? We hold former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama responsible for introducing this poison into our society.

Our Interview With True Conservative Garland Tucker

As North Carolina’s incumbent Senator – and Mitch McConnell clone – Thom Tillis skipped important votes in the Senate to attend fundraisers, we caught his principled limited government constitutional conservative Republican primary opponent Garland Tucker for a short telephone interview.

Congressman Chip Roy Stands Tall Demands Debate Of $19 Billion Disaster Bill

One principled limited government constitutional conservative – Representative Chip Roy of Texas – was willing to stand tall and say NO to passing, without debate, a disaster aid bill that no one had read, that added $19 billion to the deficit and that did not address some of the real disasters, such as the illegal alien invasion on our southern border.

Trump Is Right To Play Hardball With Dems

“Bipartisanship” can’t be a one-off arrangement; Democrats must recognize President Trump’s legitimacy and debate the details of legislation in good faith, or President Trump is perfectly justified in refusing cooperation with them on infrastructure or any other issue.

Conservatives Put On The Brass Knuckles

“What I want to do with the Article III Project is take off the gloves, put on the brass knuckles and fight back,” Mike Davis, an Iowa native who was the chief nominations counsel for Senator Charles E. Grassley, told Carl Hulse of the New York Times.

Viguerie and Shirley: Trump’s next battle: McConnell and the GOP Swamp

Richard Viguerie and Craig Shirley, Fox News

The battle between Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump and is only going to intensify. When Donald Trump surprised the world by winning the 2016 election, the establishment was not going to let go of power without a fight. What’s worse is that they failed to learn anything from the sweeping loss of the House of Representatives in 2018.  McConnell and his weak-kneed colleagues are again failing to understand the mood of the American people. They want a fighter for the policies he promised to deliver. Those not wearing their MAGA hats and stand in the way of those promises are likely to come out on the wrong side of this fight.

#NeverTrump GOP Senators Messing With Donald Trump Jr.

Senate Intel Committe Chairman Richard Burr, not generally thought of the sharpest knife in the Senate’s GOP drawer, apparently decided to give the Democrats, including his odious Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA), one more opportunity to grandstand for the cameras and to set a perjury trap for Donald Trump Jr.

Trump To Address Most Important Immigration Issue

We believe President Trump’s willingness to take on the assimilation issue comes from his own deep sense of patriotism and love of country, and his own family’s immigrant story. We are 100 percent in favor of a strong and effective assimilation program being included in any immigration reform plan put forth by the President.

The Turtle Wants To Move On… To What?

Conservatives applaud Majority Leader McConnell’s words of support for President Trump and for his demand that Democrats end the obstruction and publicly funded conspiracy theory propagation. The problem we see is that McConnell has not specified what action he plans to take to move the Trump agenda forward.

Conservatives Balking At $2 Trillion Infrastructure Plan

President Trump campaigned on increasing infrastructure spending, but we see a carefully laid Democrat minefield looming in this latest “agreement” with plenty of political downside to the President and Republican 2020 candidates if he proposes raising taxes or blows up the deficit before the 2020 election.

McConnell Ready To Betray Trump on Spending

White House officials are leery of where budget talks between McConnell and Pelosi may lead, noting that the last bipartisan deal reached in early 2018 boosted spending by $300 billion over two years. Conservative policy experts are urging Trump not to trust McConnell to put together a spending deal that wouldn’t blow up the deficit.

Mexican Military Now Patrolling North Of The Border, US Sovereignty Violated Repeatedly

While two American soldiers were parked south of the border fence, but north of the Rio Grande riverbed, placing them “appropriately in U.S. territory,” five or six Mexican soldiers approached with FX-05 Xiuhcoatl rifles, ordered them out of their vehicle and disarmed one of the Americans. This is just the latest in more than 500 Mexican military border violations in the past decade.

GOP Setting Itself Up For Failure… Again

Republicans didn’t lose the House and a number of winnable Senate races in 2018 because they didn’t know how to use smartphone apps to run a precinct operation. They lost because they failed to produce on the Trump agenda and failed to brand the Democrats as dangerous anti-constitutional socialists.
