Mitch McConnell

Obama’s New GOP Henchmen

Laura Ingraham, Lifezette

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. There will be no escape — any states that try to pass conservative legislation will soon find that their laws have been struck down by Hillary's judges.

Trump vents frustration with GOP

Alexander Bolton, The Hill

Trump told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who led the meeting at the National Republican Senatorial Committee headquarters, that he’s “not feeling the love” from the leader, according to a lawmaker who attended. Trump made the comment in a joking tone, but he also sent a clear message that he wants more support from the people who are supposed to be his allies on Capitol Hill.

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.

Indiana Trump and Cruz Voters Agree: Marlin Stutzman for Senate

The open Senate seat in Indiana is one where the two leading candidates present a stark choice between Marlin Stutzman, the principled limited government constitutional conservative and Todd Young, the Big Government – Big Business Mitch McConnell yes-man. We urge our friends in Indiana to vote Marlin Stutzman for Senate in tomorrow’s Indiana Republican primary.

Speaker Paul Ryan's Budget Makes Major Contribution to Trump Campaign

Establishment Republicans, increasingly desperate to derail Trump’s candidacy, seem completely unable to understand how they have made Trump’s rise possible. To simplify it for Speaker Ryan (and Mitch McConnell and all the lobbyists on DC’s K Street) Trump is winning because he’s running against you, not Hillary Clinton; he’s running against your failure to put so much as speed bump in the road of Obama’s fundamental transformation of America.

Cruz won't apologize for calling McConnell a liar

Jessie Hellmann, The Hill

An apology from Ted Cruz for calling Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a liar "ain’t gonna happen," the presidential hopeful said during a Thursday interview with CNN's Dana Bash. "If the Washington lobbyists want to see that happen, they can hold their breath a long, long time," Cruz said. "My focus is on the American people."

Conservatives to pounce if GOP relents on Supreme Court

Burgess Everett, Politico

It's safe to say all of the conservative goodwill would end the instant Republicans agreed to take up Merrick Garland's nomination. And the fire would turn inward at the worst possible moment for Republicans, as the party is scrambling to save its narrow Senate majority in November.

Vote for Ted Cruz Like The Future Of Your Country Depends Upon It

What the Republican establishment fears more than anything, including a Donald Trump nomination, is that when Ted Cruz wins he brings more than a new Republican administration to power – he brings us – the limited government constitutional conservative movement to power.

Sessions: McConnell Is 'Doing Exactly What Harry Reid Would Do'

Susan Jones, CNS News

In apparently refusing to hold a confirmation hearing on President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)is "doing exactly what Harry Reid would do if he were in the majority at this time," Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Fox News's Megyn Kelly Wednesday night.

Memo to House Republicans: Ryan’s Agenda Will Help Trump and Cruz

Speaker Ryan is completely tone deaf to what is driving the outsider candidacies of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. They are not winning the Republican Primaries by campaigning against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders – they are winning by campaigning against Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus and the rest of the feckless, principle-free Capitol Hill Republican leaders. Ryan’s plan for this year’s budget will only fuel their candidacies.

Vote Cruz in Iowa as if the Republic Depends on It

Ted Cruz represents the conservative movement within the GOP, and if he wins, he brings a new class of conservative activists to Washington, who would displace the present feckless Republican establishment.  And this is what the Republican establishment fears more than anything; when Ted Cruz wins he brings more than a new Republican administration to power – he brings us – the limited government constitutional conservative movement to power.

Trump Bashes Ted Cruz for Being Rude to Mitch McConnell

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

Within the last nine months, Donald Trump has mocked a disabled reporter for his disability, suggested that Megyn Kelly was on her period during the course of a debate, made fun of Carly Fiorina’s looks, and called the entirety of the Republican leadership “stupid” more times than I can count. Now he is bashing Ted Cruz for – I kid you not – having bad manners with an esteemed member of the Republican Establishment.

Obama Throws Down The Gauntlet: GOP Leaders Pre-Surrender

Republican leaders will talk a good game for the next year, but don’t expect Obama to leave office with his agenda unfinished, because, as we explain here, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have already “pre-surrendered.”

It’s Time To Call BS on Texas GOP Rep. John Culberson

This is going to play out exactly the same way Rep. Culberson’s cynical lies about stopping Obama's executive amnesty played out. Culberson will bluster, he will threaten, he may even hold a hearing or two, but absolutely nothing Obama does on guns is going to change because Culberson has already funded everything Obama plans to do right through September 2016. Please sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republican leaders, tell them "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

Obama’s Gun Grab: To Protect Our Liberty We Need More Congressmen Like Mo Brooks

Republican "leaders" gave away their only leverage against Obama when they passed the Omnibus appropriations bill and funded his entire agenda for the rest of his term, and none of them have actually attacked the basic premise of his actions – that government can and should restrict or ban the possession of firearms by ordinary Americans. Leave eloquently opposing that proposition to Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama. Sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republican leaders, tell them "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

GOA: Yes, Obama IS Coming After Your Guns

Obama believes that because terrorists and some who are mentally deranged want to kill us, we should take a closer look at our gun laws. On that point, we agree:  We do need to reexamine our gun laws.  But what will make us safer is to repeal unconstitutional gun laws.   Click the link to sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republicans, tell Ryan and McConnell "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

Thank Paul Ryan For Obama’s Gun Grab

When the details and the text of Obama’s gun grab become public don’t blame Obama – blame Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the spineless Capitol Hill Republicans who elected them, passed the Omnibus, and empowered Obama to spend his last year in office attacking constitutional liberty, stripping you of your rights and fundamentally changing America. Click the link to sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republicans, tell Ryan and McConnell "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

Schumer brags that McConnell did Democrat agenda

Rick Manning, NetRightDaily

Democrat Senator and future leader of that party in the Senate Chuck Schumer broke D.C. protocol by telling the truth about how the minority party still controls the agenda when he gloated, “Sen. [Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell wants to see the Senate work.  But the good news for [Democrats] is, to make it work, he has to do basically our agenda.”

Obama, Ryan and McConnell Overturn Results of 2014 Midterms, Take Victory Lap

A few principled Republicans on Capitol Hill did vote “NO” on the Omnibus: Ted Cruz said he voted not just "NO, but Hell No," and Rand Paul voted "NO," but Marco Rubio? He once again skipped the vote. Please watch our free "message from the grassroots" video and then forward it to your friends to let the Republican establishment know what you think about their complete surrender to Obama.

10 Days To Save America: Defund Planned Parenthood NOW!

As big as abortion is as a policy debate, the internal Republican debate over cutting funds for Planned Parenthood is even more consequential from a constitutional perspective. It goes to the very heart of our constitutional system of government and what the role of Congress is in it. Why is it so hard for the sophisticated insiders of the Republican establishment to understand this? Please join us by signing our open letter to House and Senate Republican leaders
