Moderate Republicans Cry Foul After Freedom Caucus Member Nominated To Lead NASA

Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) is one of the most conservative members of the House, serving in the chamber’s controversial Freedom Caucus that has stopped many profligate bills and made many waves in Washington D.C. Bridenstine may get the opportunity to take his talents to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as he was named by President Trump to serve as the new head of the organization. Bridenstine was formerly the executive director of the Tulsa Air & Space Museum & Planetarium, and has been a long-time advocate of privatizing space. He is a strong supporter of mining for minerals… Keep Reading

Trump Backtracks On Support For Cuba Diplomacy, Sides With Marco Rubio

President Donald Trump is reportedly set to backtrack on his past support for opening up diplomacy with Cuba, and instead bring back aspects of the 54 year long embargo against the island nation. According to Fox News, he will announce this policy shift during a speech in Miami on Friday. Trump is likely to close the U.S. embassy in Cuba’s capital, Havana, and reimpose restrictions on flights to Cuba from the United States. Although the former decision was expected, the latter is a surprisingly radical move that will heavily affect freedom of travel for ordinary Americans, given that Cuba is just 90 miles from… Keep Reading

Why Rex Tillerson Gives Neocons Heartburn

Donald Trump announced this morning that he will nominate ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State. But Trump can’t expect to get Tillerson’s nomination through the Senate without a fight. In the days leading up to Trump’s official announcement, the Senate’s leading neocons – Lindsay Graham, Marco Rubio, and John McCain – all expressed opposition to Rex Tillerson. Tillerson also received critical coverage from leading neoconservative publications including the National Review and the Weekly Standard. So what is behind neoconservatives’ opposition to Tillerson?

Marco Rubio Warns Republicans About WikiLeaks: ‘Tomorrow, It Could Be Us’

When Australian computer programmer, publisher, and journalist Julian Assange founded WikiLeaks in 2006, he wrote a piece titled “Conspiracy as Governance” in which he outlined his plan to target and destroy what he calls a true conspiracy: the political party. “Consider what would happen if one of these parties gave up their mobile phones, fax and email correspondence—let alone the computer systems which manage their [subscribers], donors, budgets, polling, call centres and direct mail campaigns,” Assange wrote in 2006. “They would immediately fall into an organisational stupor and lose to the other.” By fomenting the fear that communication tools are… Keep Reading

A Winning Ticket For The GOP Presidential Nomination

America faces a serious choice in 2016. The question is a simple one. Do we continue or expand upon the policies of Barack Obama, or do we make a decisive choice to step away from the abyss and back into the light of freedom and justice by renewing the promise of a new American century? From the beginnings of his insurgent, grassroots campaign for Senate in 2011, I have always supported Ted Cruz, and knew that he would be the strongest, boldest voice for a Conservative renewal of America. His understanding of and dedication to the Constitution far exceed that… Keep Reading

Three Reasons Every Libertarian Should Celebrate a Ted Cruz Iowa Win

Much of the libertarian interest in next week’s Iowa Caucuses is focused on Rand Paul – and rightfully so.  Since his apparent decision to drop the middle-of-the-road rhetoric and go full libertarian early this year in the face of declining money and support, many of his father’s sidelined activists have taken renewed interest in his campaign. Rand’s numbers in Iowa have seen a slight uptick, and his campaign has released some impressive organizational numbers. Still, Rand is a longshot to pull off a win in a state where the competing candidacies of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have reshaped the… Keep Reading

The Debate Republicans Deserve

As we approach tonight’s Republican debate, sure to be a spectacle similar to the last three awkward attempts to manage the political equivalent of a starting football lineup, it’s worth mentioning that debates don’t have to be this way. Late last week Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal challenged Senator Ted Cruz to debate Obamacare mano y mano in a response to the latter’s assertion that he would debate “anyone, anywhere”.  Though the move was a clear attempt by Jindal to lash his sinking dinghy to the surging Cruz ship, he served the ball directly into Cruz’s court in such a way… Keep Reading

Rand Paul Opposes Obama Fast Track Authority, Cruz & Rubio In Favor

One of the major issues that has caused a divide of late in the Republican presidential field is the granting of fast track authority to the Obama administration to negotiate the Trans Pacific Partnership. Earlier tonight, Senator Rand Paul came out against granting Obama fast track authority. Paul told WMUR.com that “the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement ‘is being held under lock and key’ by the Obama administration ‘because they’re afraid that if the public knows what we are going to vote on, that somehow that would destroy the republic.'” This is a move that builds on Paul’s long record of… Keep Reading
