Judge Napolitano shows how completely incompetent Hillary Clinton was when secretary of state

The Daily Caller has the story: Clinton’s chief of staff while secretary of state, Cheryl Mills, revealed in a deposition that Clinton “exclusively” used a BlackBerry, not a laptop, desktop or a tablet to communicate electronically. Appearing on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” on Thursday, ...

Call to thank your senators for giving us a voice in the direction of the Supreme Court!

President Obama is trying to bully the Senate into confirming Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court as part of his plan to stack the Court with a liberal majority that will undermine our most cherished rights. Merrick Garland would be the fifth vote on the Supreme Court to gut our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms and empower unaccountable bureaucrats at agencies like the IRS and EPA – he must be stopped! Even the liberal New York Times admits a Supreme Court with Merrick Garland would be “the most liberal in decades.” Fortunately, Senate Republicans, led by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), are holding firm and ...

The Hill has the full story: "What I find absolutely outrageous is your suggestion that when it comes to illegal immigrants, the IRS couldn't really be bothered when it comes to these folks stealing Americans' Social Security numbers," said Rep.

We need your help stopping Obama from stacking the Supreme Court with another liberal Justice!

With the tragic passing of Justice Antonin Scalia last month, President Obama and his liberal allies are attempting to put another liberal Justice on the Supreme Court. It is a very rare occurrence in our nation’s history for a Supreme Court Justice to be confirmed in an election year for a vacancy that arose that same year. In fact, it’s been more than eight decades since this last occurred.  But the Democrats are determined to rush the confirmation process to shift the entire direction of the Supreme Court – which will have lasting and significant consequences for our country for the next several decades. The Left has a very checkered past ...
