Super PAC to Protect ‘True Conservatives’

posted by Joe DuganLeave a Comment

capitolThe latest super PAC — Restore Our Republic — says its mission is to back “true conservatives” in House races, setting up a possible counterweight to the influence of Karl Rove’s American Crossroads.

Former Republican Rep. Jeff Landry of Louisiana recently launched the super PAC and left little doubt that the new group will be taking on the former Bush aide, whose own influential super PAC says it will oppose Republican candidates in primaries that they deem too extreme.

A Dynamic Duo: Red Line Dawning?

posted by Joe Dugan3 Comments

DSC05282-300x225.jpgEveryone is focused on North Korea and whatever its young leader, Kim Jong Un, may be doing to build up his credibility with his military, or to coerce South Korea into softening its policies, or to win direct talks and aid from Washington. At least the last possibility seems to be playing out—as suggested by Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent trip and his efforts to get China’s help in derailing North Korea—wonder what China’s help will cost?

Indeed, how much will Uncle Sam pay during this appeal to “multilateral” diplomacy? (In what currency and to what end?) It seems likely to be another “triumph of hope over experience” in a cyclic process that for over 20-years has failed to stop North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missile delivery systems of all ranges?

Rush Through Senate Will Kill Trust In Immigration Reform

posted by Joe DuganLeave a Comment

JackassWhen it is finally unveiled next week, the immigration reform proposal crafted by the Senate’s bipartisan Gang of Eight will be long — possibly 1,500 pages — and complex, and it will call for far-reaching changes in important areas of American life. One would think the leadership of the Senate might want to talk about it.

Not so. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, a longtime supporter of immigration reform, has vowed to push the bill through his committee “with all deliberate speed.” When Sen. Marco Rubio, perhaps the key Republican in the Gang, called on Leahy to hold “multiple” hearings on the bill, Leahy flatly turned him down. The committee will hold just one more hearing on the bill, Leahy declared.

DimwittedIllegalImmigrationproposalWASHINGTON — A group of Republican House members led by Iowa Rep. Steve King spoke forcefully in opposition to a mass legalization before first solving the problem of illegal immigration at an event with reporters Thursday.

“We held our powder dry but decided to come forward now because we are seeing the inertia [of immigration reform] and we are concerned about having this wash over us and not have the opportunity for constitutional conservatives in this country and in this Congress to have their voice heard,” King explained.
