Republican Senate Says “We’ll Get Kennedy’s Replacement Confirmed This Fall”

by Steve MacDonald June 28, 2018

Democrats are always mad, but at least now they have a reason. Mitch McConnell says the U.S. Senate will have a replacement on board for Justice Kennedy before the November election. Democrat’s are (believe it or not) playing the hypocrisy card because the GOP balked at moving on Merrick Garland before the Presidential Election in 2016. They […]

U.S. Senate August Recess Cancelled – Democrat Obstruction Blamed

by Steve MacDonald June 5, 2018

The party of progress just got their summer vacation canceled due to their all-out effort to prevent progress. Senators will receive “a state work period” the first full week of August, but must come back to D.C. after that. This is bad news for the incumbent Democrat senators since they will not have the ability to campaign during […]

Really – Elizabeth Warren actually used this phrase? Cluelessness

by Skip April 9, 2018

I’m on a lot of Democrat email lists. No, I generally don’t post stuff but this was just too rich.  She just sent out an email about Florida Governor Rick Scott’s announcement that he’s going to run for US Senate against the incumbent, Democrat Bill Nelson (who, btw, would be happy to take your guns […]

Schumer Shutdown – Chuckie Schumer blinks, reads polls, take that long dive into political “Cave in”

by Skip January 22, 2018

And the Democrat Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer (D/Progressive – NY) has just caved into to the person that the Democrats believe is the stupidest person in the world: President Donald Trump.  How does that even work that the stupid guy won – and won easily yet again? I doubted it was possible, but Dems have […]

Mitt For Senate? What Would The Utah Legislature Say?

by Mike January 14, 2018

Orrin Hatch hinted that he’d support Romney for Senate from Utah, and Mitt has taken the bait. The question for me is not “Has Mitt moved to Utah?” or “Is he angling for continued relevance on the political stage?” or even “Is he seriously thinking of running for president in 2024?” No, for me, the […]

Al Franken Resigns. Really Resigns. I Mean, He’s Done. Gone. Buh-Bye

by Steve MacDonald January 2, 2018

We can officially say that US Sen. Maggie Hassan has DONE something useful in the US Senate. “It is clear that Al Franken has engaged in a pattern of egregious and unacceptable behavior toward women, and he should resign. Today, Al Franken, resigned. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) officially submitted his resignation on Tuesday after being pressured late last […]

Democrats show their decision between Moral Outrage and Pure Power

by Skip December 19, 2017

SHOT:  “If Democrats care about the future of Kirsten Gillibrand, they need Franken to shut up and go away.” I’ve already posted today on the topic of the potential for Franken to “un-resign.” He’d always only said he would resign in the coming weeks, so I presume it would be procedurally easy to decline to follow […]

US Senate Passes Tax Reform

by Steve MacDonald December 2, 2017

The US Senate has passed a tax reform package. The Washington Post’s opening paragraph is a predictable spin on the left-wing narrative. Yuge breaks for corporations, a mixed bag for everyone else. Over at Red State, where they’ve been critical of Trump and this plan (and the Senate) for months, the tone was a bit different.

by Steve MacDonald November 12, 2017

Socialist Bernie Sanders Has a Democrat Primary Opponent in Vermont!

by Ed Naile July 10, 2017

In a pathetically liberal state run by New Yorkers and rich Connecticut elites, anyone wishing to run against the establishment must do more than take the Socialist Party Purity Pledge. (New Hampshire has something not similar called the “Taxpayer Protection Pledge.”) In Vermont, to even stand a chance against a lifetime appointment Senator like Sanders you […]

by Steve MacDonald February 9, 2017

Nuclear Chickens Come Home to Roost

by Steve MacDonald December 5, 2016

We tried to warn them this could happen. It’s unlikely Mr. Reid had a President Trump in mind when he pulled the so-called “nuclear option” trigger three years ago, changing Senate rules to eviscerate the use of a filibuster to block presidential nominees. Harry’s lack of depth perception before he had his “exercise band accident” […]

Endorsement: Jim Rubens for US Senate

by Mike September 13, 2016

My personal endorsement goes to Jim Rubens for several reasons First – The courage to stand: In the deep, dark, depths of Winter 2015/6, committed conservatives met several times, and they were of one mind and voice: Kelly Ayotte will go, but will we allow Hassan to replace her?

The GOP again gives us a reason for “not a dime’s worth of difference”

by Skip August 14, 2016

Or, why do we think there there is only a Fusion Party?  Because they act no differently than the Democrats when they don’t think we’re looking.  Take the appropriations for the Office of Civil Affairs and its meddling over transgenderism by its own re-manufacturing of law and definition replacing the meaning of what was passed […]
