President George H.W. Bush will be greatly missed, not only by his family and those who knew him best, but by the whole country and world. President Bush proudly and honorably served his country, beginning by his heroic service in the United State Navy following the attacks on Pearl Harbor and then eventually as the youngest aviator (at that time) in the United State Navy. President Bush became involved in politics by running for office and being appointed to several distinguishing positions throughout Republican committees and administrations. His last and most distinguishing political title came in 1988 when he was elected to serve as President of the United States, being the first incumbent vice president in 152 years to do so. Additionally, President Bush is part of only two father-son pairs in United States history to serve as Presidents.Read more

This is a prestigious appointment for Mr. Palmer who has already had a career of prestige, integrity, and honor. Currently, Mr. Palmer wears multiple hats including serving as a fellow at the Bipartisan Policy Center. Mr. Palmer’s career in public service has been extensive, serving as a Naval Reserve Officer, serving as a trial attorney at the Department of Justice, serving as the Director of Elections in Florida, and acting as Secretary of the State Board of Elections in Virginia.Read more
While the ABA, nonpartisan and Republican legal circles all agree that Thomas Farr is well qualified to be a District Court Judge, Senator Schumer and DC-based liberal judicial smear groups are attacking Mr. Farr. The irony is that the items they are attacking him for are supported by Democrats!
First, Mr. Farr is being attacked for defending North Carolina’s voter ID law for his client, the state of North Carolina. Putting aside the lawyer's ethical duty to his clients, voter ID is supported by a large majority of Democrats in every survey released. The most recent survey put the numbers at 63% support for a photo ID requirement from Democrats and more interesting, 69% support from lower-educated Democrats.Read more
I was on the ground as an observer in Broward County during the Florida recount involving Governor Rick Scott and Senator Bill Nelson. Washington Democrats, Republicans, and the media are all confused regarding what really happen in Broward in the past few weeks.
Democrats want to say that any vote fraud or miscounting in Broward was caused by their inefficiency, not bad intent. Yet, there can be no question the final vote total stole votes from Rick Scott.Read more
