Sen. Cruz in Charge of the Conservative Movement

 In what appears to be the ultimate modern demonstration of “drinking the Kool-Aid,” Republicans across the spectrum seem to have entered a pact in sticking together to defend, and even celebrate, campaign tactics predicated on gross voter fraud and manipulation of minority voters.

Ben Carson: Kick Out “Spineless” Congressmen Who Won’t Stop Obama

Sarah Palin Dishes Out Endorsement to Katrina Pierson

 Sarah Palin does not hand out a lot of endorsements, but when she does she is usually quite successful.

The tea party grows up

Throwing tantrums may be fun, but they’re no way to build a movement.  Ever since a wave of conservative insurgents arrived in Washington after the congressional election of 2010, Congress has careened from one tea party-inspired fiscal crisis to another, from the debt-ceiling showdown of 2011 to last year’s 16-day government shutdown.

The Underpants Gnome Caucus

Derek Hunter  I have to preface this column with a disclaimer: I’m a big fan of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. His policy goals are my policy goals.

Washington Hijinks: Democrats’ generic ballot numbers declining

Erick Erickson With election season upon us and the Democrats’ generic ballot numbers declining, President Obama has done the only thing he could do — delay, again, the employer mandate in Obamacare.

Pat Buchanan: Is the Tea Party’s Dream an Illusion?

“There is no education in the second kick of a mule,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. With some such thought in mind, Speaker John Boehner strode to the floor of the House to offer a “clean” debt ceiling bill and relied on Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats to pass it.
