With Christie hobbled, Jeb Bush’s lukewarm (at best) reception, Establishment GOP floats another Romney run?

Yes, this is the genius masterstroke the DC GOP has been waiting for.

You have to hand it to the establishment. They keep trying. So what if Romney is another big government Republican which a large part of the GOP vote couldn’t really support in 2012. The consultants which got paid big time during the 2012 Romney run could get paid again! And if Romney could somehow get the nomination it would be another blow to the libertarian/conservative coalition in the Tea Party. Win/win. Well not for the American people, and probably not for Mitt Romney. But certainly a win for the folks who work in Downtown DC.

Colorado 2016 poll: Rand Paul beats Hillary Clinton (By a lot.)

Colorado is a political bellwether. It is an interesting mix of rural and city, hippie and frontierspeople, gun nuts and gun control laws, new west and old west. It is perhaps the purplist of purple states. And right now Rand Paul is not quite crushing Hillary Clinton, but soundly ahead of her in this very important electoral state.

Feds flying in style: Uncle Sam’s executive jets used for personal travel

Living it up with other people’s money. It’s long been a pastime for our government. (And governments in general. The British still put up with a “royalty.”)

You, you see aren’t in government. You are simply not that important. To the degree that you exist you exist as a profit center for us, the people who run the show.  We can wipe you out with a fountain pen. You should be thankful to pay for our private jets.

In my very brief time on Capitol Hill after college I remember that raising money as soon as a Congressperson was elected was of the absolute highest priority. If one didn’t raise a pile of money early the other party might perceive you as weak and would then dump cash into your next opponent’s campaign.

How to get fired from Fox News in under 5 minutes, Judge Napolitano breaks down the crony system we now live in.

Judge Napolitano said this on his show Freedom Watch 2 years ago and was soon unceremoniously shown the door.* It is a blistering critique of a system which is based to a large extent on lies of an almost unfathomable scale, the emotional manipulation of an American people into clubs (red or blue), and wholesale cronyism at the highest levels. Download this video to your brain because it is a classic speech and one I am glad I was reminded of tonight.

For my friends on the right and left, up, down, whatever, this is what honest politics looks like.

*His show was cancelled. Fox kept him on the payroll.
