Wednesday, Rep. Joaquin Castro confirmed he will bow out of an electoral contest with incumbent Sen. Cornyn.

After Trump’s national address on Tuesday night, a response was offered by Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. The optics of Schumer standing next to Pelosi and scowling silently as she spoke was… awkward.

After hours of  “will they, won’t they” coverage,  the broadcast networks and cable news networks decided they will broadcast Trump on Tuesday night. Only CBS...

Will Senate Democrats shut the government to prevent Trump from getting his wall?

The fight over the wall isn’t about the wall.

It’s about open borders and whether Trump can withstand the conniving of Democrats AND Republicans in D.C.

It’s also about Democrats hope to hand Trump a “read my lips” moment that will alienate his supporters and damage enthusiasm for 2020.

Hours after the death of Senator John McCain (R-AZ) was announced, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) proposed renaming the Russell Senate office building the McCain Building.  Soon-to-be former Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) quickly added his name to the proposal.

The idea, however, has been met with push back from other Senators, including McCain’s...

As the July 9 date for Trump to announce his pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy nears, there is a vicious multi-front war evolving.

Of course, Democrats are attacking every likely nominee, with the anti-Catholic bigotry against Amy Coney Barrett the most prominent. Barrett would be the most finger-in-the-liberals-eye pick, and not...

We all know that millionaire Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) hates banks and the financial sector. The woman seethes about it at every opportunity.

Well, the idea of the government easing some some of the banking rules under Dodd-Frank has left her fuming. To make it worse for her SOME OF HER DEMOCRAT...

Today is an embarrassing day to be a Democrat.

Senate Democrats wasted an entire grandstanding-filled weekend for a whole lotta nuthin. Rather than coming to an agreement with Senate Republicans and President Trump Friday, Democrats ended up accepting the deal (with nothing new in return) Monday.

As this post goes live, there are lots of rumors of some sort of “deal” between Democrat and Republican “moderates” to end the government funding impasse.

The Democrats, and particularly Chuck Schumer, have talked themselves into a dead end of seeming to put the interests of illegal aliens ahead of U.S. citizens....

UPDATE: A cloture vote to end debate in the Senate on the funding bill passed by the House failed. So we’re heading to “shutdown” unless there is a last minute deal reached.

As a reminder of how Obama weaponized the 2013 shutdown, see my post Flashback to when Obama weaponized 2013 government shutdown.

On July 13, 2015, long before it was clear or even likely that Trump would be the Republican nominee, much less president, I wrote at National Review how central the issue of illegal immigration was to Trump’s rise.
