Sen. Rand Paul urged the thousands that turned out for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to imagine electing a “friend of liberty” to the White House who will defend the Constitution and push back against a federal government that is trampling over their individual rights.
Mr. Paul, a likely 2016 presidential contender, suggested that he might fit the bill, and said it will take a “national revival of liberty” to restore the constitutional rights that have been under assault by the Obama administration.
Lying Harry Reid And The Economy: The Liberal Math Behind Why Down Is Up Plus Real Examples Of The Damage ObamaCare Is Doing
How did this all happen? I mean, back when I was growing up during the Reagan years when an economic indicator was down, it was down. When the number was up, it was up. But things are completely different today thanks to the liberal weasels who are at the reins of our government institutions.
Now, down has become up and vice versa, or something like that. And everything is manipulated so that it actually becomes good news. No need to worry about any of these budget, employment, or even ObamaCare numbers because someone else will be paying for it. That seems to be the liberal rationale, or at least what they want us to believe.
Endlessly slandering the efforts of the committee’: Issa responds to Cummings’ Oversight outburst [VIDEO]
Republican Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa responded to the controversy surrounding Wednesday’s hearing on IRS targeting, claiming he shut off Democratic ranking member Elijah Cumming’s mic because he was “endlessly slandering the efforts of the committee.”
Issa spoke with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren about the explosive Wednesday hearing, which saw disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner again take the Fifth over Tea Party targeting and Cummings explode into an angry tirade after trying to ask a question following the hearing’s adjournment
This past week Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was the target of a massive assault by the liberal media that sought to inflate a minor story about his administration as Milwaukee county executive into a scandal that could eliminate him as a 2016 presidential contender. The effort fell flat as the issues involved were insignificant and there was no link between the governor and any wrongdoing. Even a fishing expedition into 27,000 pages of emails revealed nothing more damning than an internal debate about whether a former thong model was a suitable candidate for a job. Liberals may have had a brief moment of elation when they thought this would remove Walker from the 2016 picture as effectively as Bridgegate turned Chris Christie’s presidential hopes to ashes. But Democrats would do well to ignore this distraction and instead take a deep dive into a story published today in the New York Times that centers on the real reason why the Wisconsin governor is so important: fiscal reform.
California Rep. Darrell Issa adjourned a divisive House Oversight hearing Wednesday after IRS official Lois Lerner pleaded the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer his questions.
“Seeking the truth is the obligation of this committee,” Issa said before announcing that he had no expectation that Lerner would answer his questions and adjourning the hearing.
Lerner invoked the Fifth Amendment on each question Issa asked about the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. The hearing lasted approximately fifteen minutes before Issa released Lerner.
(CNSNews.com) – During his 90-minute phone conversation with President Obama on Saturday, Russian President Vladimir Putin hinted that Russian military intervention in Ukraine could go beyond Crimea, the region now under effectively occupied by Russia. That’s according to the Kremlin’s brief account of the phone call, initiated by Obama.
Sarah Palin wasn’t the only one to foresee the events now unfolding in Ukraine. Quite a few remember the third presidential debate in October 2012, during which Mitt Romney was ridiculed for his “stuck in the 1980s” foreign policy.
Not only do we remember; we have the video.

After Democratic Senator Tom Harkin praised Cuba on several issues, Senator Marco Rubio gave what has been called by Miami Herald reporter Marc Caputo as the “best oration of his career.” Its passion and candor about the despicable socialist regimes of Cuba and Venezuela should put those politicians who can actually praise the oppressive nations to shame. The best lines from Rubio’s stemwinder, which is worth every minute:
◾Let me tell you what the Cubans are really good at, because they don’t know how to run their economy, they don’t know how to build, they don’t know how to govern a people. What they are really good at is repression.
Governor Scott Walker has come out to support a bill that would shift education standards to a new state board, with specific requirements of accountability.
According to legislation written and proposed by State Senator Leah Vukmir (R-Wauwatosa) the board would be comprised of public educators and active parents, and eventually replace the controversial Common Core State Standards in place now. Currently, the benchmarks for testing and curriculum are implemented by State Superintendent Tony Evers and have come under recent fire for what opponents see as a federal threat to control by local school districts.
Governor Walker shook up the debate the last two days as he publicly showed his support, presumably because of concerns by key conservatives statewide. The movement to oppose them has grown into a national issue, with New York educators recently rejecting most of them, and Indiana forbidding them entirely. This latest effort in Madison is aimed at education reform as a whole however, not just one issue
