Chris McDaniel Announcement Sets Mississippi GOP Senate Primary

"We've lost our way as a people and the party, the party of Taft ... the Party of Reagan... has lost its way as well," our friend state Senator Chris McDaniel said in his announcement remarks. "The Tafts and Goldwaters are the heart of the GOP, not the McCains and Lindsey Grahams."

McCain Returns To Arizona Throwing Tax Bill Vote Into Doubt

The Capitol Hill Republican leadership has severely watered-down the pro-growth elements of the tax bill. However, no Democrats will vote AYE, so all of the sops to class warfare offered in the final bill may be for naught if Republicans don’t have the Senators on the floor to pass the bill.

Will Little Marco Tank The Tax Reform Package?

The Republican margin in the Senate will shrink to just one vote when Democrat Doug Jones of Alabama is sworn in – possibly as early as December 26.

The Despicable Mitch McConnell

The game here isn’t electing Republicans – it is “crushing” conservatives as Mitch McConnell swore to do before the 2014 election. We predict that McConnell will, as he did in Mississippi in 2014, pull out all the stops to kill Roy Moore’s campaign, even if it means electing Far-Left Democrat Doug Jones to the U.S. Senate and jeopardizing the Republican majority.

Congress Suffers From Senility Of Purpose And Principles

The 115th Congress is among the oldest in history; 18 of the 33 Senators running for reelection in 2018 will be 65 or older, but we think Congress is failing not because it suffers ill effects from aging, but because it suffers from senility of purpose and principles.

The Exquisite Hypocrisy Of 20 Republican Senators

After 20 Republicans opposed Cruz’s point of order declaring the “CRomnibus” to be unconstitutional our principled conservative compatriots at Heritage Action compiled a list of “what they said then” on amnesty versus how they voted that is such an exquisite example of Washington insider hypocrisy that we have to share it in its entirety.

How Conservatives Can Get RNC to Face the MS “Estab. Problem”

ColdWarrior, RedState

Conservatives can get the RNC to address the MS “Estab. problem” in the future. If conservatives began flocking into their respective local GOP comm. meetings in great numbers, they could have an immediate impact on the conduct of some of the current RNC members.

Are You Going To Let The US Chamber Buy The GOP?

As Richard Viguerie says in TAKEOVER, if we conservatives act like just another pressure group – like the US Chamber of Commerce – we are going to lose, because we can never outbid Big Business for the services of the GOP elite.

Why We Must (Gently) Disagree With Rich and Ramesh

Now is the time for limited government constitutional conservatives to contest every primary and every election for precinct committeeman. Now is not the time to engage in wishful thinking about a “new synthesis” that will only act to keep Big Government Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Thad Cochran and Lamar Alexander in power to continue the policies we conservatives oppose.
