A Message to House Republicans: Think Like Uber (Jenny Beth Martin Op-Ed in the Daily Caller)

Are House Republicans about to repeat the same mistake that got them into their current mess? John Boehner’s decision to give up his speakership allows the members of the House Republican Conference a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make a mid-course correction. But if media reports are correct, they plan to elevate current Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy to the speakership by virtual acclamation in next week’s Leadership elections. That would be a terrible mistake, and an opportunity wasted. Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2015/10/01/a-message-to-house-republicans-think-like-uber/#ixzz3nL3kHMnk

Even Pres. Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson says San Francisco sanctuary policies “counterproductive to public safety”

President Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson Tuesday finally joined the chorus of voices criticizing the "sanctuary city" policies in San Francisco many say led to the murder of Kate Steinle.  Steinle was allegedly shot by an illegal immigrant with prior convictions while walking along the San Francisco waterfront in July. The suspect was released from local custody prior to the shooting, despite a request from federal immigration officials he be kept in jail. Fox News reports: "It is counterproductive to public safety to have this level of resistance to working with our immigration enforcement personnel," he said during a talk ...

Republican senators pass the buck on Obamacare transparency

When the Senate Subcommittee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship voted last week on whether or not to subpoena documents from the Washington, D.C. Obamacare exchange, the result was shocking, yet predictable. It predictable because – surprise! – members of Congress don’t want to lose their special perks. It was shocking, however, because half of the subcommittee’s Republicans sided with Democrats to squash an investigation, spearheaded by Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana, into whether lawmakers falsified documents in order to get special Obamacare exemptions. The Republicans were: Sens. Jim Risch of Idaho, Deb Fischer of Nebraska, Kelly ...

Senate Republicans are caving…again

Senate Republicans have begun their cave on amnesty. Instead of standing strong and fighting Obama’s executive amnesty, and passing the House-approved DHS funding bill, Senator Mitch McConnell has floated a stand-alone bill. McConnell’s plan would gut any efforts to roll back the president’s lawlessness. As reported in Conservative Review [1]: It would leave in place the previous executive amnesty from 2012, DACA.  What Senate Leadership won’t tell you is that the standalone bill is designed to fail. Democrats will block the bill and then Senate Republicans will move either a long-term bill to fully fund Obama’s executive amnesty and ...

Our message to Hill Republicans: Double down on DHS!

Last week, the Senate voted to begin debate on a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security before its funding runs out at the end of this month. And three times, Senate Democrats filibustered the bill because they object to language that would strip funding from President Obama’s executive amnesty [1]. Where are the Democrats’ priorities? Obviously, they’re not with funding the Department of Homeland Security. Our Republican leaders, to their credit, have stood firm on this bill. Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is bringing up the version that passed the House. We want him to keep standing his ground, and send a very loud and ...

Conservatives to GOP: Americans Expect Republicans in Congress to Fight for the Conservative Agenda

Election 2014: A Conservative Victory November 5, 2014 Washington, D.C. The American people sent an unmistakable message to Washington: Voters expect Republicans in Congress to listen and fight for the conservative agenda they ran on. - Every single newly elected Republican Senator ran on the full repeal of Obamacare. In most competitive races it was the top issue. Over 40,000 ads against Obamacare were run on behalf of winning candidates. The Republican House and Senate must now keep those campaign promises and use reconciliation to send a bill repealing Obamacare to the President. - All but one of the newly elected Republican Senators ...

A Republic… If You Can Keep It

“Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?,” inquired the anxious woman outside Independence Hall. Benjamin Franklin’s response to Mrs. Powel was profound. “A republic, Madame, if you can keep it.” His answer was more than a revelation of the government the framers had constructed under the new US Constitution. It was a charge – a challenge – to preserve what Abraham Lincoln would later characterize as “government of the people, by the people and for the people." Franklin understood the need for a perpetually vigilant citizenry to curtail a government, one such as ours today. Our government has forgotten its ...
