Cruz on Hannity

In all the news noise over the Iowa caucuses, a decision by the Illinois Board of Elections passed almost entirely under the radar.

There was much hoopla when two voters filed a challenge to Ted Cruz appearing on the ballot because Cruz allegedly was not a “natural born Citizen” and ineligible. (My...

Now that Texas governor Greg Abbott has been in office for a while, it’s easy to see why he beat Wendy Davis so handily. Abbott is pushing back against what he, and many others, see as an overreaching federal government.

This day in 1933, America had the good sense to decriminalize booze. The 21st amendment to the Constitution was ratified, nullifying the 18th amendment.

Three weeks after his inauguration, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Cullen-Harrison Act, legalizing the sale of beer and wine with the alcohol content of 3.2%. The “3.2%...

Florida representative Alan Grayson has a reputation for being a little “out there.”

When he’s not making bizarre claims about GOP health care plans, calling female lobbyists “K Street whores,” or running blatantly false and manipulated ads, Grayson apparently likes to muse about against whom he can take legal action.

Obama Press Conf Iran Deal end July 15 2015

The Obama administration thinks it outsmarted opponents of the Iran deal by running to the U.N. Security Council for international approval before Congress’s review period even started.

It was a typical Obama F-U to his domestic opponents.

Since Congress now needs a super-majority to block the deal, the outcome is uncertain. The Obama...

There’s a simple explanation for why civil asset forfeiture laws are coming under fire—they ruin lives.
