Betsy McCaughey, Creators.com

It's a lie that Obamacare is paid for and repealing it would increase the deficit. The GOP must repeal this "stinkburger" and replace it with a health insurance safety net built on compassion, not lies.

Criminal counts include mail fraud, perjury, and employing illegal immigrants. Grimm called the charges a “political witch hunt.” Will this endanger one of the GOP’s few remaining strongholds in NY and give Dems the edge in the swing district?

After 24 years in Congress Speaker Boehner says he isn’t an “ordinary American” anymore; he’s no longer part of "We the People," he’s part of “We in public service,” the ruling elite in Washington.

The GOP Civil War

Jamie Radtke, The Bull Elephant

“Whenever they are the face of the opposition to the Democrats, the Repubs. almost always lose on the national level. It is the most important political battle in America and it’s not between Repubs. and Dems. - it’s inside the Repub. Party. And for the most part, conservatives have been losing.”

The Talladega Economy

The Republican establishment and the cheap labor wing of Big Business want to continue to suppress wages and job growth for American citizens by granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and opening the borders to more low-skilled immigrants.

Could There Be a McClintock versus Ryan Showdown in 2016?

Someone needs to offer the principled limited government constitutional alternative to the Republican establishment on spending. Starting a “draft Tom McClintock” committee may be what is needed, because McClintock is saying what few others will – America can’t afford many more mistakes like those the Republican establishment made on the Ryan spending deal.

Chris Christie’s Big Test on Illegal Immigration

We think the ads against any candidate in a Republican presidential primary that supports granting public benefits to illegal aliens pretty well write themselves.
