The House Committee on Ways and Means voted today to refer former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. Lerner has been at the center of the IRS controversy of targeting conservative groups for their political beliefs. Politico PRO reports (sub. req’d): In an extremely rare, closed-door […]
Five years ago the Tea Party kicked off in St. Louis. Much of what we warned America about then, and were ridiculed for, is the horrifyingly ridiculous stuff of the daily news today. I won’t go through the laundry list – I don’t have the time at the moment, we’re still getting settled back into our house (thanks Tornado’s!), so continuing my posts on what differentiates Progress from ProRegress will have to wait yet another week – but to mark this date, I’ll just note what left leaning, Obama supporter, Jonathan Turley, a professor of public interest law at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., warned Congress of this week:

““My view [is] that the president, has in fact, exceeded his authority in a way that is creating a destabilizing influence in a three branch system,” Turley said. “I want to emphasize, of course, this problem didn’t begin with President Obama, I was critical of his predecessor President Bush as well, but the rate at which executive power has been concentrated in our system is accelerating. And frankly, I am very alarmed by the implications of that aggregation of power.”
“What also alarms me, however, is that the two other branches appear not just simply passive, but inert in the face of this concentration of authority,” he added.”
Whatever good intentions have motivated the Left, and many elements of the Right, to put us on this path, it leads, and can only lead, in relation to Liberty and the Rule of Law, down a progressively regressive path.
The link in my sidebar “To be a house slave… or to be an American – That is the question” is not becoming any less relevant to our futures… but our futures are.
Just do me a favor, when someone tells you that the policy they’re promoting will help make progress – ask them to explain what they mean by that, and how it relates to your ability to live your own life. Your ability to live your own life depends upon it.

Can we officially conclude the establishment Republican Party has declared war on the Tea Party? Evidence is pointing that way, and Missouri Congressman, Blaine Leutkemeyer, is the latest to take a shot, not across the bow of, but directly into the hull of several Tea Party organizations. John Boehner said, They are misleading their followers. […]

It’s comments like the one from McConnell’s campaign yesterday that are driving dedicated activists out of the Republican Party. In response to our radio ads simply highlighting his voting record, McConnell responded by calling Matt Bevin’s supporters “fringe.” What people like Mitch McConnell and Karl Rove fail to understand is that the hardworking base of [...]
