Great piece yesterday, at The American Thinker by Black conservative Lloyd Marcus: I am so sick of the Left being allowed to make the rules. Imagine the absurdity of a competition in which one side is allowed to set the rules against their opponent. The Left tells us what is racist. The Left tells us […]

Over at Pajamas Media, Bernard Chapin raises an obvious and axiomatic point: In the end, government “reform” is no reform at all.

Yo Eric, Michael Steele got the memo: “I just want to make one thing very clear. Folks need to understand what’s happening here, Sean. You’ve already talked about it. This is a systematic effort, I think, very well planned out to distract. They’re saying, “Oh, yeah, prices are going up for everything you have to […]

From Swamp, Micheal Steele, video: Text: “This is Michael Steele, Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Democrats have controlled both branches of government for less than a month.
