Dems Trounce House GOP in Grass-Roots Donations

The DCCC, the campaign arm for Rep. Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats, has raised $22 million more than the House GOP for the fall elections. That result is surprising enough, as Democrats' minority status gives them little political leverage in the House. More surprising, though, is that Democrats have raised almost three times as much money, $46 million v. $17 million, as Republicans from small-dollar grass roots donors. Recent polling would suggest the opposite situation.

Sarah Palin Doubles Down: Impeach 'Lawless, Imperial President'

Sarah Palin writes at FoxNews.com: The Constitution provides the remedy for a president who commits “high crimes and misdemeanors.” It’s impeachment. To be clear, “high crimes and misdemeanors” are not necessarily ordinary criminal offenses. Our Framers used the term to signify a dereliction of duty, and the first duty of the president is to enforce our laws and preserve, protect, and defend our Constitution. No serious person who is paying attention can deny that Obama and his administration have abused and violated the public trust and disregarded the Constitution. Let me count the ways. 11 Jul 2014, 11:15 AM PDT

Exclusive–Trump: ‘A Country That Cannot Protect Its Borders Will Not Last’

Our government should immediately stop sending money to Mexico. USMC Sgt. Tahmooressi sacrified for our country, and while Obama is welcoming illegals, our Marine is locked in a Mexican jail. Mexico is allowing tens of thousands to go through their country and to our very stupid “open door” at the Mexican border. Frankly, Sgt. Tahmooressi is the only person who can’t come into our country! 11 Jul 2014, 11:02 AM PDT

In Response to Buffett, Gates, and Adelson

Feds Send 14,000 Draft Notices to Men Born in 1800s

No, the United States isn't trying to build a military force of centenarians. It just seems that way after the Selective Service System mistakenly sent notices to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born between 1893 and 1897, ordering them to register for the nation's military draft and warning that failure to do so is "punishable by a fine and imprisonment." 11 Jul 2014, 6:20 AM PDT

Sarah Palin writes on FoxNews.com about President Obama's "buzzed on suds" hijinks in Denver this past week while attending big-money Democratic fundraisers that cost $32,000 to attend.

Homeschoolers Confront Common Core Standards

Multiple media outlets and far-left groups have savaged faithful Catholics and Protestants over this past week after the Supreme Court held that Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).

Rep. Gutierrez: Don't Make It Easier To Send Illegals Back

For several years now, some on the political right have portrayed the U.S. Export-Import Bank (Exim) as an exemplar of inappropriate federal government involvement in activities that should be left to the private sector.

The Government vs. the People: Rebuilding Trust in the Midst of the Illegal Alien Tsunami

Six in ten Americans now believe that the American Dream is out of reach. While the rich get richer, most middle-income earners see prices for basic necessities skyrocketing as their incomes flat-line.
