Once government reaches a certain size its prime directive ceases to be to serve the people who created it to become preserving itself and expanding its power. Obama, the Democratic Party and unionized government employees all have the same goal.

Obama said he won’t introduce ground forces for combat against ISIL.  But airstrikes are no panacea.  The president will face pressure to escalate if his initial efforts fall short.

Republicans won't win back the Senate or other key races if they take a knee or throw the ball out of bounds on amnesty for illegal aliens, Obama’s contempt for the Constitution, Congress’ out-of-control spending and how to effectively confront the great national security threats facing the country today.

Despite the angry protests and venom spewed at her from her detractors — Florida's Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi has been true to her oath and right on the issues; that’s why we endorse Pam Bondi for reelection as Florida’s Attorney General.

My friend Phyllis Schlafly's new book, Who Killed The American Family?, is essential reading for anyone who wishes to not only preserve the family as the basic and most important building block of society, but as the basic bulwark of liberty itself. And, as the only book we have seen that connects the dots between the causes and cures for what is killing the American family, it is also essential reading for any politician who wishes to govern according to conservative principles.

The media consensus is that the Tea Party movement lost big this GOP primary election cycle because Tea Party candidates did not pull off large numbers of miraculous upset victories against incumbents. The reality is that when the field is more level, as in special elections for open seats in the Texas state Senate, the Tea Party movement has been very successful.

We think that ISIS and the rise of the Islamic State are much more serious threats than Obama and the Washington foreign policy and national security establishments let on – which is exactly why Congress must not simply give Obama a blank check in a briefly and lightly debated Continuing Resolution. The threat from this latest iteration of radical Islam is much too serious and demands the full airing that the Framers built into the Constitution. Sign our petition urging Congress not to give Obama's war request a "blank check" in a Continuing Resolution and instead debate it seriously and constitutionally.

Why is it that as political odds makers calculate which Senate seats the GOP will likely recapture to achieve a majority, Ed Gillespie, the establishment Republican selected candidate for Senate in Virginia is not to be found on any of the "likely GOP pick-up" lists?

The problem that Obama will address tonight is his political problem going into the midterm elections, not the political, military and cultural problem presented by ISIS and the rise of the Islamic State.

The one Senator who stood almost alone against the travesty of the Democrat's SJR 19 was Utah’s Mike Lee. And yes, we've got the transcript and video for you right here.
