?Wouldn’t $3.7 Billion better be used to build a concrete wall across the border of the United States? The fence that the American people were promised when President George W. Bush signed the Secure Fence Act of 2006 saying “This bill will help protect the American people. This bill will make our borders more secure. It is an important step toward immigration reform."
Students will be lied to. About the victimization of women at the hands of Republicans. About the God-given differences between men and women. About the importance of the family.
Though Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s epic defeat was a shock to the country, when you think about it, those of us within the Tea Party movement should not have been surprised.
Tuesday's primaries are just another round of the Republican Party trying to figure out how we are going to be defined for the next 2 years going into the 2016 Presidential race. Much of the establishment would like to show certain losses as the reasons why the Tea Party/Conservative wing of the Party should not be given a seat at the table.
A blockbuster news event happened earlier this week. One that ought to have caused outrage in all political quarters. One that ought to have made us question not only the Obama administration’s competence, but also their motives.

Last week, our nation’s genius Vice President Joe Biden offered a statement which alienated some of his most loyal fans. “If I blindfolded someone and took them at 2:00 in the morning into the airport in Hong Kong and said ‘where do you think you are,’ they’d say, ‘this must be America, it’s a modern airport,’” Biden said during a speech on infrastructure in Philadelphia.
