The United States Supreme Court handed down decisions today in key cases involving abortion and First Amendment rights and limits on presidential power.

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 -- Republicrat Victory, IRS Scandal, Boehner v. Obama, Get A Warrant

Cochran's "Republicrat" Victory

Last night's results from the Mississippi Senate runoff were disappointing to say the least. Six-term incumbent Thad Cochran prevailed 51% to 49%. But the way Cochran won deepened the division between GOP leaders and grassroots conservatives.
