The Senate Republicans’ Latest Disgrace

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Thursday, May 19, 2016

To nobody’s surprise, the Lee amendment to defund the Obama administration’s radical Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule (AFFH) (a rule that essentially turns the federal government into a national zoning board, forcing high-density housing on unwilling cities and towns while letting bureaucrats decide the racial, ethnic, and income balance of local communities) was tabled by a vote of 60–37 today, marking a defeat for conservatism, community control, and common sense.

The Obama Administration Thinks Hillary’s Hometown Is Racist: Does Congress Agree?

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Should Americans be able to choose what kind of housing is built in their neighborhoods and communities, or should politicians and bureaucrats in Washington do that, dividing us by race, class, and ethnicity to meet their utopian visions of “social justice”?

Meanwhile In The Indiana Senate Race

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Todd Young is actually, at least on paper, one of the best so-called “establishment Republican” candidates. He has a genuinely impressive background—military, academic and professional. I think he could potentially be a very effective senator.

Anti-Trump Protesters, Not Trump, Were The Biggest Disgrace At His California Rally Last Night

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Friday, April 29, 2016

What happened at the Trump rallies in Orange County, Calif., last night was a disgrace, but for once, it was not primarily a disgrace of Donald Trump’s. Protesters, some holding Mexican flags, tried to block people from attending the speech of an American candidate for president. Insults were hurled, roads were blocked, and property was damaged.

What Trump’s Big Victory And Cruz’s Big Announcement Mean

by Jeremy Carlvia National Review
Thursday, April 28, 2016
