Democrats arrested for voting fraud in Connecticut’s largest city

I’ve waited a long time to do a post about Democratic voting fraud, but I finally found a case, and it’s a doozy! It should be noted, though, that this is a story about local contests between Democratic candidates in a solidly blue state, and doesn’t involve voting for president or[...]

How secession could work

GOP firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene says, “We need a national divorce,” and while her idea of splitting up red and blue states won’t work, it’s not worth another civil war to keep Republicans in the Union. The divorce part is easy; we’re already divorced. Republicans a[...]

Fresh off the debt fight, the GOP wants new tax cuts

Within days after the debt ceiling deal was struck, Republicans appeared to renege by indicating they will seek deeper spending cuts in budget negotiations; and now, on top of that, they’re also “pushing deep tax cuts for companies and the affluent,” ABC News reported on Monday, Ju[...]
