GOP Senators Cave on Obama Secret Trade Deal

On Friday, the US Senate passed a bill giving Barack Obama additional ′fast-track′ powers in negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. The bill includes provisions blocking transparency such that secret elements may be part of the agreement. Many see this as Republican senators caving into White House demands. But not everything went Obama′s way as a human-trafficking provision was also included, which may cause Malaysia to be left out of the 11-nation trade deal. They may still be part of the TPP if they can show they are making some progress in reducing slave labor in their country.

Marco Rubio Announces 2016 Presidential Campaign, Fresh Face for White House Race!

Appearing before a cheering crowd of thousands at the Freedom Towers in Miami, Florida, Senator Marco Rubio announced his 2016 presidential campaign bid. His prepared speech was delivered well, highlighting his humble beginnings and an eye to the future of America. A future that does not need the politics of yesterday, namely the policies of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Policies of utter failure! Rubio, on the other hand, is the fresh face with fresh ideas behind it. Marco Rubio believes that his leadership is what is needed for occupying the White House in order to put the United States back on track towards a brighter future.

Rand Paul announces 2016 Presidential Campaign Bid

The junior U.S. Senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, announced his 2016 presidential campaign run this morning. Sen. Paul, a favorite of many in the Tea Party, became the second Republican to declare a bid for the White House. ″I am running for president″, Paul stated in an ad on his website, adding a pledge to ″return our country to the principles of liberty and limited government.″ His website is already selling autographed copies of the Constituuuuuution as well as other fun items like Rand Paul beer steins. Paul brings with him an established following from his father, Ron Paul and many Libertarians and independents. His appeal to younger voters and others who typically do not cast ballots for Republicans is quite high.

Glenn Beck explains leaving GOP

Last night on Fox News, our old pal Glenn Beck explained what he meant when he announced last week that he was done with the Republican Party to his buddy, Lord Haw-Haw, a.k.a. Bill O′Reilly. I have to say that I was puzzled by this ′announcement′ when I first read about last week. Many of the articles, even Haw-Haw himself begun the interview last, approached the subject as if Beck were leaving the GOP. Like Glenn was a car-carrying member of the RNC or something. This puzzled me since I can clearly recall from years ago, back when Beck had a show on FNC, that he had said, many times, that he was not a Republican. If anything, he′s been leaning more Libertarian for the past few years.

Ted Cruz First To Run for White House in 2016

It′s official! Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz is the first to announce his run for the White House in 2016! Today, Cruz will appear before a packed auditorium at Liberty University in Virginia to declare his candidacy for president. But shortly after midnight, Cruz tweeted his intentions on Twitter. Of course, everybody knew he was going to do so. However, any doubts that he was merely going to announce the formation of an exploratory committee, as other potential GOP candidates have already done so, are now put to rest. Nearly every poll so far shows Cruz near the bottom of the barrel as a primary contender. With less than 5 months to go before the first GOP presidential debate, can Cruz raise enough money and voter support to make a difference?

Phil Robertson at CPAC, Rand Paul Wins Straw Poll

CPAC 2015 ended Saturday with a whimper, not a bang. Rand Paul won the CPAC straw poll for a third time in a row with about 25.7% of the vote. Scott Walker, who probably gave one of the better speeches at the conference, came in second with 21.4%. Ted Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson followed them with 11.5% and 11.4% respectively, and poor Jeb Bush took 5th place with just 8.3%. The rest of the deluge of GOP hopefuls lagged well behind with none above 5%. But it may be the A&E, ′Duck Dynasty′ star, Phil Robertson, who wowed the crowd at CPAC with his remarks about how he blames hippies for STDs and gave John Boehner a verbal ′hot foot′. He also referred to the Barack Obama White House as being full of ′non-Christians′. Needless to say, the Liberal Media is all aghast by this.

Mitt Romney Cancels 2016 Run for White House

A case of ′Mitt-agating′ circumstances? Barely three weeks after floating a trial balloon, Mitt Romney has decided not to run for president in 2016. This would have been his third try to win the White House after losing the GOP primary to John McCain in 2008 and the general election to Barack Obama in 2012. During a conference call to supporters, Romney said it was time to give ″the next generation of Republican leaders″ a chance to serve and defeat a possible run by Hillary Clinton. Friday evening, Romney had dinner with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, whom apparently did not fall out of his chair for a change. I can already see Saturday Night Live having fun with that! Jeb Bush is obviously the big winner with Romney′s decision. But is it enough? Why the sudden reversal?

Joni Ernst Rocks GOP SOTU Response

The newly elected Republican senator from Iowa, Joni Ernst, gave the rebuttal to the State of the Union Address 2015 by Barack Obama. As a fresh face representing the GOP, Joni Ernst scored a 10 out of 10 in delivering the Republican response to the SOTU speech. Unlike those in the past, such as Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal, whom only provide fodder for late night comedians. Not sure what they′ll try to poke fun at Ernst over? Perhaps her personal story about wearing old, plastic bread bags over her one pair of good shoes while a school girl? Ernst assured the American people that the new Republican Congress, controlling both the House and Senate, will act for their benefit. The first order of business is to send to the White House a bill approving the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline which will bring energy and jobs from Canada to the Gulf Coast.
