We all know that no one — Republican or Democrat — who voted to pass the Omnibus Appropriations Bill last week read even a sliver of what’s inside the 1,500-page government purchase order. But we do know who the nominal “conservatives” are in the Senate who voted for it anyway.
Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) went off Friday on President Barack Obama’s continued reliance on a false climate change narrative, telling a Senate committee the President is more or less lying by repeating disproved, dire claims that global temperatures are on an irrevocable upward surge.
An appeals court has tossed out a lower court’s finding that would have denied bloggers the same 1st Amendment protections afforded to mainstream journalists. That’s an enormous victory for citizen […]

A Florida man was traveling South with his family on the way home from a wedding in New Jersey when the Maryland Transportation Authority Police began tailing his Ford Expedition. After about 10 minutes, the police pulled him over and told him they knew he owned a gun. They demanded he produce it for them on the spot.
President Barack Obama’s urgent focus on closing the wealth gap in America is barely on anyone’s radar. Simply put, almost no one views income inequality as a problem — especially compared with the overall economy, unemployment, healthcare and, of course, government itself.
How could he not have seen it coming? House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) got on Facebook Wednesday to slam President Obama for threatening to usurp Congress’ legislative powers by posting […]
Oregon has spent more money than any other State to bring its State-managed Obamacare website, Cover Oregon, into existence.

Congressman Lee Terry (R-Neb.) has a proposal before the House that would require the Administration of President Barack Obama to give weekly updates to Congress on the progress of the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Predictably, the White House is against it.
Last month, we offered up a sampling of hypocritical and criminal behavior from members of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s pet gun control group. One Pennsylvania Mayor who made it on the list was James Schiliro, who is now in jail.
“I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone.”* That’s how President Barack Obama phrased his open threat Tuesday to bypass Congress in 2014 if his agenda suffers the same […]
Last September, Arizona GOP Legislative District 26 called out Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) for supporting President Barack Obama’s Federal appointees. In the new year, it’s the Maricopa County Republican Party — the local arm of the GOP that’s right in McCain’s backyard.
One conservative psychologist says it’s time for the Republican establishment to stop apologizing for the party’s core values and to start putting progressives on the political defensive. And if they don’t, regular folks who are fed up with spineless GOP leaders can effectively ostracize the party’s chicken wing.
The U.S. Department of Energy will introduce new software tomorrow that allows volunteers to begin assessing energy consumption in their homes by using “scoring” criteria created by the government. The […]

A Republican Oklahoma legislator has just about had it with silly media reports of kids getting kicked out of school for making pistol shapes with their fingers or eating their Pop Tarts into the shapes of guns. So she’s drafting a State bill that would prevent schools from disciplining kids for being… well, kids.
According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the American economy added 74,000 jobs in December of 2013 – and yet the unemployment rate still managed to fall from 7 […]
Wonder why the U.S. Department of Justice’s purported criminal investigation into the Internal Revenue Service discrimination scandal, which involves the targeting of Tea Party nonprofit groups during the 2012 Presidential election season, doesn’t seem to be going anywhere?

But one DOI staffer wasn’t going to be bullied.
President Barack Obama designated five areas Thursday as Economic Promise Zones: three in cities, one in rural Kentucky and one on the Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma – and nearly all […]
As President Barack Obama attempts to stave off an election-year repeat of the public relations disaster he saddled his own party with in 2013, he’s kicking his policy rhetoric into community-organizing mode. Launching an income inequality initiative is Obama’s way of bailing incumbent Congressional Democrats out of the Obamacare debacle.
