It’s safe to say visitors to the FedUp PAC website don’t need to think twice about so-called gender identification. After all, there are only two genders, and you are one or the other. In some places, however, apparently it’s not as simple as that. Take New York, for example. Last week, native New Yorker and Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump was asked on NBC’s the Today Show about... Read More >

Capitol Washington DC
Conservatives oppose the Puerto Rico bailout bill that the House Republican leadership has been pushing, according to a poll by FedUp PAC. A nearly unanimous 99% say that Puerto Rico should cut back on its generous welfare state spending rather than be bailed out by taxpayers or refuse to pay its debts. The bailout had been expected to pass the House last week but was delayed when conservative... Read More >

Indiana: The Establishment Strikes Back

John Kasich Ohio Governor
If there is any state in which the GOP establishment has demonstrated its ability to overrule the wishes of GOP voters, that state is Indiana. Most observers believe that either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz will win the May 3 primary and that they will split the delegates between them. John Kasich seems unlikely to win even a single congressional district. However, the delegates have already been... Read More >

US Flag Waving Conservatives Win Opening Budget Battle in House
Conservatives won the first of many battles over 2017 spending as they blocked passage of a budget resolution that would have exceeded the spending limits of the 2011 budget compromise. Conservatives, especially those belonging to the House Freedom Caucus, objected to the House leadership plan to add $30 billion in spending to what is already a rapidly increasing deficit. Following the 2011... Read More >

Puerto Rico Bailout Exposes RINO Alliance with Democrats

A bill to bail out Puerto Rico from the consequences of its huge deficits has exposed the fact that the RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only) prefer to deal with liberal Democrats rather than conservatives in their own party.

Constitution Tales of Courage and Cowardice in the Culture Wars
This is a tale of two governors, but it’s no bedtime story. Instead, it’s a profile in courage alongside a profile in cowardice. Both of the governors in this tale are Republicans. One of them – Phil Bryant of Mississippi – is true to the traditional Republican principle of upholding the Bill of Rights. The other one – Nathan Deal of Georgia – is a Republican-in-Name-Only (RINO) who betrayed... Read More >

While attention has been focused on the 2016 presidential race, Republican insiders also had to fight back a challenge to their control over the Senate – and their success gave them only a temporary victory.

Paul Ryan Can We Believe Him
Yesterday House Speaker Paul Ryan declared that he would not be the Republican candidate for President in 2016. Ryan said all the right things, claiming that he would reject the nomination if offered and that the nominee must be someone who has actively campaigned for the nomination. But can we believe him? Can we really trust Speaker Ryan to turn down the chance to run for president when all... Read More >

The Republican Convention: History and Warnings

FedUp PAC Staff
Ted Cruz Shaking Hands
As it becomes more and more likely that no candidate will arrive at the Republican National Convention with a majority of the delegates, a point of dispute has been whether the delegate leader deserves to receive the nomination or whether the delegates should feel free to continue voting for as long as it takes for a majority to rally behind one candidate. Donald Trump, currently leading in the... Read More >

The GOP’s Washington insiders have been taking it on the chin in the 2016 primaries and local caucuses, but there has always been a justifiable fear that they might bounce back in the delegate selection at state and congressional district conventions. Fortunately, early results indicate that grassroots activism in support of outsider candidates Ted Cruz and Donald Trump is overpowering the... Read More >
