Rand Paul Attacks Ted Cruz Because He told the Truth in Public

Republican Sen. Rand Paul said the following on Fox Radio about Sen. Ted Cruz’s remarks on the Senate floor: “Ted has chosen to make this really personal and chosen to call people dishonest in leadership and call them names, which really goes against the decorum and also against the rules of the Senate, and as […]

Conservative Senator Disagrees with Mitch McConnell – says Patriot Act Must Go

  The Patriot Act is up for reauthorization again, and it’s stirring a deep debate in the halls of Congress over whether or not the Patriot Act should be renewed. Several leading conservatives have joined a gaggle of liberals to stand up against reauthorization, which is being championed by the establishment of both parties. Recently, […]

McConnell Demanding Democratic Compromise or No Vote on AG Nominee Lynch

Ever since Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) became Speaker of the House after the 2010 midterm elections, he has done nothing but cave into every demand made by Barack Obama. He has failed miserably to lead House Republicans in the way that the voters demanded. When Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) became the Senate Majority Leader in […]

GOP May Have Majority but They Don’t Have Control

By Wednesday morning, November 5, 2014, Republicans were celebrating across the land that they had won control of the Senate and increased their lead over Democrats in the House. They believed that with control of both the Senate and House that they could accomplish a great deal and even reverse a number of Obama’s socialist […]

Will The GOP Pull the Plug on the EPA or Just Talk About It?

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? “Who will guard the guardians?” It takes years to get an Amendment to the Constitution passed. The last grand attempt was the Equal Rights Amendment, and it failed even though the amount of time for its passage was extended. Amendments no longer matter. A president can send a memorandum, sign an […]

Mitch McConnell Has Adopted Obama’s “Yes We Can” Slogan

“To incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), it is more important for Republicans to be the party of yes than go all-out to defund President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty.” Mitch McConnell is beginning to sound more like Obama every day. One of Obama’s campaign slogans was “yes we can.” A great slogan until voters […]

I Am No Longer a Republican

I am no longer a Republican. John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and their Democrat-lite, RINO Republican establishment have seen to that. They have betrayed their own constituents. They have actively turned against the American people – the very voters who granted them power to do good. Even before the gavel has sounded on the Republican-led 114th […]

Is It Time to Abandon the Republican Party?

We’re hearing about third parties again. Mark Levin has said that “he’s one inch away from leaving” the Republican Party. Matt Barber has written “I Am No Longer a Republican.” In the second paragraph of his article (you can read it here on Godfather Politics), he writes: “Even before the gavel has sounded on the […]

GOP Asks SCOTUS to Look at Medicare Death Panels

Will Republicans repeal, replace or just leave Obamacare alone? Opinions vary on all three possibilities. Some people who have never been able to obtain health insurance due to pre-existing conditions don’t want to lose their new coverage and I understand their feelings. Others are saying they want Obamacare repealed or replaced because they are paying […]

Mary Landrieu Lost Because She Reminds Voters of Hillary Clinton

As I predicted in 2013, 2014 turned out to be a great year for the Tea Party. Conservatives didn’t get everything they wanted. We’re still stuck with John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, but we’ve added some good people to the ranks of the GOP. We’ll know very soon if the can hold the line against […]

Obama Again Hurts Democrats’ Chances at Polls

Due to Barack Obama’s record low poll numbers and sagging approval ratings, many Democrats, incumbents and new candidates have been trying to distance themselves from him in their campaigns. They feel that they have a better chance of winning in November without Obama’s support than with it. Two weeks ago I wrote about Obama opening […]

Did Obama Just Help the GOP Win the Senate?

I live in northern Kentucky and the senate race between Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes has been heated and very tight. Republican ads have been pushing her strong ties to Obama and his devastating policies, especially on immigration and his war against the coal industry. The main economy […]
