the Morning Briefing every morning at no charge.


1. The National Tax Day Amalgamated Federation of Confederated Unions of Concerned Tea Party Patriot Expresses of America and the United States Ltd., LLC, and Inc.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 is right. “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” And the season of the tea party is sunsetting. It is now time for greater activity in the political process. Again, show up if you want. Go protest. It is healthy for us to have our voices heard. But don’t think that is all you must do. We have reached a point where the tea party movement will either go forward in greater organization or it will not. As one of those people who turned out for the initial protests, the later protests, flew around the country speaking at rallies, etc. I would like to say goodbye.

2. As you wake up this morning, you need to know who Ken Buck is

3. Chris Christie (R, NJ) zeros out faith-based program!

"Gov. Chris Christie is taking $65 million, the entire allocation, from the state’s global warming fund, and $5.9 million, from the toxic waste site cleanup program, to help close the over $10 billion deficit in his $29.3 billion 2010-11 state budget, the state environmental protection commissioner said Monday."

4. Gov. Christie v. Teachers’ Union Round 2

On Friday I posted about Bergen County teachers’ union head Joe Coppola’s prayer for Gov. Christie’s death. Monday, Gov. Christie met with Barbara Keshishian, head of the 200,000-member New Jersey Education Association. Enter Rule 4 of Rules for Radicals. Please click here for the rest of the post.

5. Another Reason to Vote Marlin Stutzman: Judges

As we head into the Indiana Senate primary in a few weeks, it is a good time to review a key fact. Dan Coats, during the confirmation fight of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, said: “There was a centuries-old tradition of respecting national electoral results by granting the President latitude in selecting nominees for the bench.” Only now that he is in his primary fight is Dan Coats walking that back, calling his vote for Ginsberg a mistake. Mind you, Ginsberg is doing nothing now we did not know she would do back then. Please click here for the rest of the post.

6. Congressional Democrats muck up Congressional insurance coverage.

Via Just One Minute comes your feel-good story of the day: Congressional Democrats have managed to thoroughly muck up Congress’ own health care coverage, particularly for new hires. Both staffers and legislators. Please click here for the rest of the post.
