In December, 4 governors and 14 states filed suit, requesting a preliminary injunction from President Obama’s executive overreach.

In last year’s budget battle, Rep. Tom Price, incoming House Budget Committee Chairman, proposed funding the Department of Homeland Security through the end of February. (DHS oversees immigration by way of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).)

The idea was that if funding for DHS and subsequent entities were held...

From the AP:

While a small group of Senate Republicans were busy causing procedural chaos over the #CRomnibus, a lower-profile court case bringing a direct challenge to the constitutionality of Obama’s “executive amnesty” was quietly making its way through the federal court system.

And guess what—the conservative position won.

Obama’s immigration plan has been criticized by many conservatives as nothing more than a plan to create new voters for the Democratic Party. If that’s true, which is likely, what could be worse?

The differing treatment of Ted Cruz and Elizabeth Warren pretty much sums up the state of implicit media bias.

Compare these two headlines from The Hill regarding Warren’s attempt to cajole the House into defeating the CRomnibus, with Ted Cruz’s similar effort in the Senate.

Congress is under another tight funding deadline. Currently, the federal government is only funded until December 11. A spending bill must be passed by Thursday to avoid a government shutdown.

I just stumbled on this video from Conservative War Chest at FOX Nation and there’s only one word to describe it.

Brutal.

This spot goes after Obama, the Democratic Party and the liberal media. It perfectly captures the mood of conservative post-midterm America.
