Not Sure About This Marco Rubio Fellow Anymore

June 1, 2013

The centripetal force of the statist-leaning ruling class in DC is enormous.  It gobbles up new, bright-eyed members all the time and spits out more of the same junk. Unfortunately, a once bright shining star in my eyes, Marco Rubio, has been caught up in it.  Nothing proves that more than how he’s become a [...]

Stymieing Immigration Reform

January 29, 2013

A conglomeration of eight Senators, including Marco Rubio amongst the usual suspects of Lindsey Grahamesty, John McCain, Chuck Schumer, came out yesterday with a possible road map for comprehensive immigration reform.  Not to be outmaneuvered, President Obama offered his enthusiasm, but also a caveat tor two which should make the fledgeling sprouts of consensus wither [...]

Flea Bites Dog! Government Shutdown Looms

April 8, 2011

The government may shut down in just a few hours (or not).  I really don’t have much faith in ruling class Republicans to get this minuscule $30-40 billion job done and have a sense that due to their wobbliness, Boehner and crew have emboldened the Dems and MSM to whittle the GOP down.  Case in [...]

Liberals Don’t Understand the Constitution

February 1, 2011

We often talk about how liberals don’t believe in the Constitution, and don’t adhere to its principles.  Most Conservatives know that from observation.  Yet it is becoming clearer and clearer that, not only do Liberals not believe in the Constitution, they don’t even know what it says.  Back during the ObamaCare debate, Rep. John Conyers [...]

Wonderful! Here Comes Amnesty!

April 10, 2010

Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC), are introducing an amnesty bill in the Senate this week.  Graham, having decided that Republicans just need to embrace perpetual minority status, has decided to ignore the Democrats’ ramming through of ObamaCare, along with the rule of law.  Fortunately, I don’t think this bill has a chance [...]

March 5, 2010

With the ObamaCare debate possibly ending in the next several weeks (hopefully in catastrophic defeat), it is worth looking at what is coming down the pike.  What appears to be on the docket is amnesty.  Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) an  Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) are gearing up to reintroduce “comprehensive immigration reform” in the Senate (note:  [...]

Why the Filibuster is Important

February 25, 2010

There has been a lot of talk lately on ending the filibuster.  Democrats have proposed ending the 60-vote cloture threshold as well as the idea of pushing sweeping controversial legislation through via reconciliation.  The filibuster is an important institution in our nation and needs to be preserved.  But don’t take my word for it, take [...]

Chuck Schumer Approval Rating Below 50%

February 2, 2010

Disclaimer:  This is a Marist poll, and does not fall in the usual Rasmussen/Mason-Dixon/IBD-Tipp axis that falls under reliable polls for Axis of Right (I am considering adding Suffolk polls, at least for myself, as reliable for New England).  Still, a poll that puts Sen. Chucky Schumer (D-NY) at below 50% shows that even he [...]

Economy Then and Now; Democrats Then and Now

April 10, 2008

The fact that The Corner’s David Freddoso can report economic data from 2008 compared to economic data from 1996 and juxtapose the statistics with Democrat quotes all in about a minute and half is proof positive of the media’s laziness, dishonesty, or both. UPDATE: The Anchoress has a great roundup of this one, complete with [...]
