Blue State Blues: Why Are Conservatives Targeting Paul Ryan?

This week's indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry was a reminder of how Democrats and the media tear down any possible conservative contender for the presidency with frivolous lawsuits and baseless investigations. The trouble is that we conservatives do a fairly good job of tearing down potential leaders ourselves. The latest dubious target is Paul Ryan, who carried Tea Party and conservative hopes in the 2012 presidential election. 22 Aug 2014, 2:24 PM PDT

Real Household Incomes Fall 5.9% Under Obama

Economic recoveries are historically known for big gains in “real” (after inflation) household income. But for most American households there has been no economic recovery during the Obama Administration because of chronic falling wages, according to data from the dshort.com website.

Colorado: Control of Senate Could Be In the Mail

Colorado has emerged as a critical battleground for control of the US Senate. Polls show the race between Democrat Sen. Mark Udall and GOP Rep. Cory Gardner within the margin of error.

As Immigration Push Stalls, Billionaire Supporters Suddenly Silent

Last year, several billionaires were busy putting their money where their mouths were in an attempt to push amnesty, disguised as "immigration reform," on a Congress that everyone thought was ripe for the issue.

Left Ramps Up 'Lawfare' Against Republicans

Last week, a grand jury in Austin, Texas indicted Governor Rick Perry on two counts of abusing his official office. The charges stem from a public threat Perry made to veto appropriations to a department of the Travis County District Attorney's office after the DA was arrested for drunk driving and displayed hostile behavior to law enforcement personnel. While the case against Perry seems extraordinarily weak, the indictment is the latest indication that the left will use all tools available to pursue its political ends. 20 Aug 2014

Federal Judge Takes Extraordinary Steps in IRS Lawsuit

Reid Building Firewall in MI, IA, CO, & NH

An old rule of politics is to ignore what campaigns say and watch, instead, what they do. Where a campaign devotes its money and resources says more about their view of the landscape than what they say in a press release. According to its recent campaign spending, Sen. Harry Reid's Senate Majority PAC is building a firewall to defend his majority in states which weren't viewed as competitive just a few months ago. It is a sign of the deteriorating climate facing Democrats nationally. 20 Aug 2014
