Congressman Dan Crenshaw recently blasted fellow Republicans in Congress as “performance artists” – a term he admits to learning from establishment Republican Paul Ryan, according to unearthed audio that also features Crenshaw hypocritically admitting that he couldn’t “claim that [he’s] not a performer.” Speaking at a recent campaign event hosted by the organization Texas Liberty Alliance PAC, Crenshaw went out of his way to critcize members of the House Freedom Caucus as “performance artists” and “grifters.” Counting nearly thirty conservative members such as Representatives Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar, and Mo Brooks – the House Freedom Caucus is home to some
House Republicans have been in various stages of chaos — both healthy and unhealthy — ever since retaking control of the chamber in 2010. Speaker John Boehner was constantly trying to cut deals with President Obama, usually giving the President most or all of what he wanted, so Republicans wanted him gone. Boehner resigned in 2015 and is now a high-paid lobbyist, while his lieutenant, former Majority Leader Eric Cantor, was taken out in a shocking primary defeat. Their clearest successor at the time was Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, but he stumbled quickly and took himself out of the running.
On Thursday, January 18th at 9:15 pm, two buses loaded with over 100 students departed from Hillsdale College, a small private school in southern Michigan. These buses contained just a few of the hundreds of thousands of people making a pilgrimage to Washington, D.C., for a single purpose: the March for Life. An event often ignored by the mainstream media, the annual march is routinely among the largest human rights demonstrations in the world, and its numbers continue to rise. Since its inception in 1974, when an estimated 20,000 people gathered to protest the now infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme
While every day is a great day to be pro-life, this day — that of the March for Life — stands among the greatest. At the 45th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., earlier this afternoon, hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers who had gathered in our nation’s capitol to call for an end to abortion were addressed by the three highest ranking men in the order of presidential succession: President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. While the crowds gathered before marching for a rally near the Washington Monument, a satellite rally was
Last week, I discussed the dangers of HR 4174/S 2046, the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policy Act (FEPA). The gravest concern about FEPA is the likely development of a national database of dossiers on every American citizen. Introduced on Halloween, this horrifying bill passed the U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on a voice vote a mere two days later with no discussion whatsoever about the privacy and freedom concerns. Apparently, many of the normally liberty-vigilant members of the Freedom Caucus who serve on that committee have been led to believe the loss of privacy is small in comparison to
As Dominic wrote earlier this week, the #FakeNews media has run with a ridiculous narrative that President Trump’s approval ratings have plummeted because of the GOP’s failure to pass the new health care replacement bill. However, polls demonstrate that this narrative is, in fact, misleading — voters are not blaming the failure of the health care bill on the president. According to poll tracking by The Huffington Post, President Trump’s favorability rating has barely shifted since the beginning of March. TRUMP FAVORABILITY RATING AVERAGES: Nov. 13: Unfavorable 54.9%, Favorable 41.4% (-13.5%) Jan 3: Unfavorable 50.0%, Favorable 43.4% (-6.6%) Feb 2:
The Los Angeles Times editorial board offered some friendly political advice to Paul Ryan: “Drop the crusade against Planned Parenthood.” Anytime establishment liberals offer political advice to conservatives, a good general rule is: do the opposite. I have some better advice: Defund Planned Parenthood now. Today would be nice, in honor of David Daleiden’s heroism and as an act of defiance to the Planned Parenthood-funded California attorney general prosecuting Daleiden for exposing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome business model. In his latest, just-released video, a former Planned Parenthood director explains that whether or not a baby who survives an abortion attempt gets treatment depends
