A Word Edgewise

There was much good news, along with a splash of bad news, in this week’s controversial poll from NBC-Wall Street Journal. Whatever the poll’s methodological shortcomings (which we will leave to the trained professionals to sort out), it’s clear that the first-tier candidates are holding firm as “candidates you could see yourself supporting,” even as second-tier figures Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee and Ben Carson are beginning to surge. As we have been saying in this space for some time, all of the GOP candidates are accretive. They all bring elements of support to what could be a winning coalition against Hillary. A bloodbath may break out ...

Having just returned from meetings with a few Congressmen on Capitol Hill, I felt it was important to give you an update. I will touch on what I mean by "freedom thieves" later in this email, but first I want to focus on our allies on Capitol Hill. Know this, that you have made a difference in the last 3 weeks. You helped amend the Patriot Act with Senator Lee's USA Freedom Act to stop the bulk metadata collection on US citizens, 34 House members voted no on the rule for TPA "fast track authority," you visited over 500 Congressional offices representing 10 Senators and 291 Congressmen last week calling for an end to the Congressional Exemption ...

We suffered through Obama’s amnesty order and all we got was a lousy 11-story building!

Now that the Obama Administration has had to stop implementing the president’s unconstitutional amnesty program, some sunlight is finally being shined on just how far the White House went to institutionalize amnesty. Indeed, according to a new Washington Post report, legal setbacks have halted Obama & Co.’s “intensive preparations” to reward illegal immigrants with amnesty, even while “community organizers” move forward with their arrangements. For starters, the Department of Homeland Security halted plans to hire another 3,100 employees. Which means they also had to halt plans to house those employees in the 11-story, building the ...

Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin today released the following statement, aimed at the US Senate in advance of expected votes to the McConnell amendments: "We support passage of the USA Freedom Act as passed by the House, and see no need whatsoever for these amendments which are obviously designed to weaken the bill. Simply put, if it is amended in the manner that the Majority Leader desires, ...
