House Majority Leader’s Wife: ‘They Don’t Want You To Have The Right To Be A Christian’

No, Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s wife, Judy, isn’t talking about what’s going on in Iraq. She’s talking about how, here in America, “they” don’t like Christians. The “they” most be those evil liberals who run America like a dictatorship. “People are sympathetic to different things and different causes, but when you bring up Christian, there is [...]

House Republicans have vote 13 times to defund ACORN, an organization that no longer exists. They may have finally gotten the message. The demise of ACORN didn’t end the Republican crusade against the organization. Again and again, the House GOP passed appropriations bills with language specifically banning the use of any funds for ACORN — [...]

House Republicans vowed to “pay as you go” and not approve measures that add to the debt. But that pledge has gone the way of immigration reform. More than a dozen bills with costs that are not fully offset elsewhere in the budget have passed the Republican-controlled House and threaten to add nearly $1 trillion [...]

At Friday’s surprise presidential press conference, the press corps tried to inject a little “blame Obama” into the Republicans’ embarrassing failure to pass even its own watered-down, dick-provision-laden bill to deal with the border crisis, but President Obama delivered the perfect response. After weeks of hair-on-fire complaining about the “border crisis,” which is really a refugee [...]

Two House Republicans admitted on Friday that it makes no sense to sue President Obama over executive overreach while at the same time urging him to act without Congress to solve the border crisis. “Look, you can’t say on the one hand that the president is overreaching by acting without legislative authority and direction and [...]

Stupidly, the House of Representatives has authorized suing President Obama. The resolution passed the Republican-controlled House in a party-line vote of 225-201 on Wednesday. All but five Republicans voted for the measure, while all 199 Democrats voted against it. The coming lawsuit will accuse Obama of exceeding his constitutional authority as president by making unilateral [...]

There is a line of thinking that the single-issue people take now-and-again wherein they wish for the worst possible outcome so that the masses swell up and a reform agenda—around whatever their single issue is—is swept into realization. And then a thousand years of benevolent Elves-riding-Unicorns overlords to rule us all happens and… and… well, [...]

In recent years, the House Science Committee hasn’t exactly been seen as the most serious committee in D.C. After all, its members have included the likes of Todd “legitimate rape” Akin, Paul “Pit of Hell” Broun, and Dana “dinosaur flatulence” Rohrabacher. But still, membership aside, the committee is tasked with some pretty serious concerns, right? Not [...]

Our media is flooded with stories about Benghazi, the deficit and apathy towards the care of veterans.  The GOP seems to lay all the blame at the foot of the Obama Administration. The Right is quick to accuse the current administration for the very problems they caused, while the media parrots these GOP-talking points, as if they warrant any merit.  The Republicans sabotage [...]

Texas Congressman Blake Farenthold refused to even question the attorney general during a House Judiciary Committee hearing. In lieu of questioning Holder, Farenthold delivered the following statement: “I’m committed to maintaining the Constitutional balance of power and the authority that this legislative branch has, and I just don’t think it’s appropriate that Mr. Holder be [...]
