While conservatives are divided on the political path forward, Democrats are showing themselves to be united in a war against the Republican Party—with one-party rule for America as the endgame.
One need only look to the political priorities Democratic lawmakers have recently adopted to gauge this reality. Led by the Obama administration, a party hijacked by far-left radicals is determined to pass comprehensive immigration reform, prevent the passage of election integrity laws, and use the IRS as a billy club to suppress free speech.

Republican Leaders Approve America as a One-Party State
By Ambrose Bierce’s Ghost
No longer capable of providing any effective opposition, Republican leaders and party consultants have agreed that the Democrats should assume permanent political control of the country.
At a June 25, 2013 White House meeting, originally announced as a foreign policy discussion, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) promised President Barack Obama that Republicans would offer only token resistance to all future legislation proposed by the Democrats. In return, Obama would permit the Republicans to remain a minority party in Congress, run candidates in certain Democrat-approved Congressional races and allow them to continue to raise money for losing Republican candidates through Karl Rove’s political action committees.

The first polling on the National Security Agency surveillance leak is out, and despite almost unanimous cries of outrage from the press and civil-liberties advocates, the rest of America seems decidedly “meh” on the matter.
As Barack Obama begins his second term in office, trust in the federal government remains mired near a historic low, while frustration with government remains high. And for the first time, a majority of the public says that the federal government threatens their personal rights and freedoms.
The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted Jan. 9-13 among 1,502 adults, finds that 53% think that the federal government threatens their own personal rights and freedoms while 43% disagree.
In March 2010, opinions were divided over whether the government represented a threat to personal freedom; 47% said it did while 50% disagreed. In surveys between 1995 and 2003, majorities rejected the idea that the government threatened people’s rights and freedoms.
A pattern may be developing. By now, everyone with a pulse should be intimately familiar with the tragedy in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
The Obama Administration is embroiled in a scandalous cover-up born of an obsession to perpetuate a myth that al Qaeda and radical Islamic terror withered to an inconsequential “remnant” with the death of Osama bin Laden.
But within just the last week, at least two more plots to attack U.S. Embassies in Islamic countries have been uncovered. Thankfully, local intelligence interrupted these two attacks before they happened. Ambassador Stevens and the other Americans were not so fortunate.
Indonesian anti-terrorist police officials arrested 11 members of a new radical Islamic sect for plotting an attack on “domestic and foreign targets, including the U.S. Embassy and a site near the Australian Embassy,” reports Fox News.
“From evidence found at the scene, we believe that this group was well prepared for serious terror attacks,” according to Maj. Gen. Suhardi Alius, a spokesman for the Indonesian national police who made the arrests.
All are believed to be members of Harakah Sunni for Indonesian Society, HASMI. Officials suspect the group is affiliated with the larger and more established Jemaah Islamiyah, a South East Asian terror organization linked to al Qaeda with a long track record of bomb attacks.
Graham’s comments came in response to the recently released Pew Research Center survey that showed nearly one in five Americans incorrectly believed Obama was a Muslim.
“He was born a Muslim; his father gave him an Islamic name,” the son of noted evangelist Billy Graham, said.
