We Americans no longer live in a society where the law is applied equally and without political bias or intent – we now live in a strange oligarchy in which a self-appointed elite, starting with the President and going right down to judges, a state Attorney General and even local zoning officials, decides which laws apply to them and which laws they will follow.

The unborn don’t get a furlough, like a bureaucrat during a government shutdown, instead they have a permanent “solution” violently forced upon them as they are dissected alive, parceled out and sold for profit.  Can anyone in Congress coherently argue that saving government bureaucrats from temporary layoffs should come before rescuing live babies? Please watch this video and forward it to your contacts and tell them to ask their Representative and Senators, "Babies or bureaucrats?" . WARNING: it graphically makes the point in 60 seconds.  

Carly beats CNN, but the media heat will now be on her. Plus, Donald Trump receives a lot of free media and accepts an invitation to a Mexican restaurant; Santorum revives 99-county Iowa strategy, and, Ted Cruz foils leftists’ plot to trap him.

As CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie observed in his book TAKEOVER, the stock-in-trade of Democrats and the Left is to lie to make Republican candidates look scary to various independent segments of the electorate; the non-existent war on women, alleged Republican racism and “meanness” to the underprivileged are just a few of these tactics. But what if Democrats actually told the truth about a Republican, like John Boehner or Jeb Bush?

Republican establishment donors clamor for Mitt. Plus, Who really supports Jeb Bush anyway?; Ben Carson’s more than just a nice guy; How Ted Cruz responded to John Boehner’s ‘jacka**’ comment; Lindsey Graham battles Trump, Graham loses, and, CNN caves, Carly likely wins.

There was and remains much about which to criticize Sudan’s government. However, U.S. sanctions have lost any purpose they once may have had. Most important for American Christians, the sanctions hurt believers already living and worshipping in difficult circumstances. The world has changed since sanctions were first imposed. Washington’s policy toward Sudan should change as well.

American Target Advertising (ATA), the agency of conservative strategist and fundraising pioneer Richard A. Viguerie, along with 57 nonprofit and other organizations today filed a friend-of-the court brief asking the Supreme Court to hear the case Center for Competitive Politics v. Kamala Harris, Attorney General of California. The brief describes the extensive collaboration between disgraced former IRS official Lois Lerner and the National Association of State Charity Officials (NASCO) whose members oversee nonprofit fundraising. 

If there is one individual who represents the face of the stale, tone-deaf, timid, moss-covered and obtuse leadership of the GOP establishment, it is Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell emblematizes the rudderless leadership, vacuous core, and duplicitous tendencies of the powers that be within the Republican Party.

A new Iowa poll shows Trump and Carson tied. Plus, yes, Fiorina is in third place in Iowa… but will she be in the next debate?; Scott Walker’s losing where he theoretically should be gaining; Donald Trump ‘emasculates’ Jeb Bush while setting the GOP agenda, and, planning the coming “Trump Takedown."

There’s nothing hokey about Mission Barbecue’s commitment to honoring America’s veterans, active duty military personnel and the first responders who protect and defend us every day; at 12:00 Noon, at the height of the lunch hour, the whole crew and patrons stop what they’re doing to sing America’s National Anthem.

We urge you call your senators and representative, the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, to demand they see the Planned Parenthood videos.  Then, please sign our letter to Congress demanding that the Republican leadership actually follow through and conduct an investigation of Planned Parenthood's human organ and tissue trafficking rather than engage in their usual “go nowhere” political posturing and tell them to stop funding for Planned Parenthood as soon as Congress returns in September.

How exactly would you go about screening out Vester Lee Flanagan II, the killer of Allison Parker and Adam Ward, from a legitimate gun purchaser?

    “Ted Cruz has proven that we can build the organization and raise the money that it takes to actually win national elections without compromising our principles at all,” Deace says. “He is the one that can go into all the various factions of our base, whether it’s libertarians, whether it’s small government conservatives, national security conservatives, evangelicals like myself. He is the one that can put the winning coalition back together again.”

    The network is asking for as much as $200,000 for a 30-second slot in the debate's commercial schedule. That's up from the normal $5,000 per slot. The rate hike is likely the result of an expected viewership surge caused mostly by the phenomenon of Donald Trump's candidacy.

    Newsflash to GOP elites: Getting Cantor's support is not like landing a prized marlin. It's like hooking one of those hideous bottom-feeding blobfish named the world's ugliest creature.

    Republicans in Washington have spent more time avoiding their constituents over the August recess than they have fighting for anything in the past several years. Every Republican Presidential candidate should be on record on whether they think the GOP should hold the line against funding Planned Parenthood no matter what.

  • Sarah Kaplan and James Higdon

    Kim Davis was narrowly voted into office last November. Her mother had been county clerk for nearly 40 years before her, and for 26 of them Davis had worked under her as deputy. She wasn’t looking to shake things up, she told the Morehead News at the time. She just wanted to do a good job. An Apostolic Christian, Davis says that her refusal to license same-sex "marriage" is “a Heaven or Hell decision.”

    CNN announced Tuesday that it is amending the criteria for inclusion for the second GOP debate in two weeks at the Reagan Library. According to the cable network, any candidate who ranks "in the top 10 in polling between August 6 and September 10" will be invited to the debate.

    Last month, famed Washington Post reporter and Watergate investigator Bob Woodward said that the email scandal engulfing former secretary of State Hillary Clinton “reminds me of the Nixon tapes: thousands of hours of secretly recorded conversations that Nixon thought were exclusively his." And there is also a remarkable resonance between Nixon’s statements during the evolving Watergate crisis and Clinton’s public statements regarding her emails.

    The consultant class within the GOP has arranged their deck chairs on the Titanic of the RNC so that they win whether the party wins or loses. But if the party were to reform and reconnect with its grassroots, the opportunities for much of the consultant class currently in power would shrivel up and die.

  • Scott Wong, The Hill

    Hillary Clinton and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) have a complicated relationship, and it’s far from warm and fuzzy. That much was obvious with the disclosure of a 2010 email to then-Secretary of State Clinton from her longtime confidant, Sidney Blumenthal, who disparaged Boehner as an “alcoholic” and “lazy” as he prepared to ascend to the Speakership.
