Oct 14 2014 12:29pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Wasserman Schultz is fighting for her job over at the DNC, even as some reports out there state that she will be canned after this year's elections. Most, if not all Conservatives and Republicans love to hate Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) not just because of her non-apologetic, in-your-face style of punditry, but because she is the biggest cheerleader of President Obama's dangerous political agenda.   The sheer mention of Wasserman Schultz's name make ...

No doubt Ebola is a serious global health issue, but to hear the right wing media tell it, the one current US case of Ebola, unfortunately contracted by a healthcare worker, is tantamount to the zombie apocalypse being all but a foregone conclusion. That one case is, according to the fear-mongers, proof positive that the CDC is clueless, its Director political and its motives questionable. And, justification that we c ...

We’re being told by medical professiona ...

Congressman Ed Royce was first elected in 1992 in one of California’s most conservative House seats. Twenty-two years later, the affable and influential Royce, now Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, still represents a reliably GOP House seat, but the district has shifted north to include a lot of Los Angeles County (and some of San Bernardino County), and it abuts a lot of solid blue territory.  If the California legislature, which is overwhelmingly dominated by Democrats, coul ...
