Ann Coulter: Eyes on the prize

 When a U.S. president is using the IRS to terrify his political enemies, destroying American health care, and opening our southern border to millions of future welfare-collecting, Democratic voters from the Third World, why is a dime’s worth of money being wasted on trying to replace the Republican senator from Mississippi with a slightly different […] Continue reading →

Senate agrees on $11B highway funding measure

 The Senate agreed Wednesday on an $11 billion measure to temporarily fix a multibillion-dollar shortfall in federal highway and transit programs, setting up a vote next week on several alternatives.

 If you are reading this, then you are experiencing a free and unfettered internet, at least free and unfettered by Congress.

 Chris McDaniel, candidate for the U.S. Senate from Mississippi, lost the Republican runoff to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran last month, and now he is being led down a primrose path to political oblivion.

The ‘most dangerous man in the Obama administration’

 In his new book, Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department (co-written with John Fund), Hans von Spakovsky reveals how our attorney general has turned America’s Department of Justice into “a politicized hotbed of left-wing legal activism.” The author revealed to Human Events the magnitude of Holder’s offenses highlighted in his book, offenses which should be […] Continue reading →

The Conservative Case for… Travis Childers?

Why The Democrat From Mississippi Deserves a Second Look  Now here me out. Suggesting that conservatives take a good look at Democratic nominee Travis Childers for the US Senate in Mississippi isn’t a suggestion motivated by “revenge” against Thad Cochran, even if that is a tempting in itself.
