Watched Glenn Beck again tonight: But what, Mr. Beck, are we to DO? What’s the W,W,W,W,W and H about what to DO?
Like you may, I listen to, when I can, conservative talk radio programs and watch, when I can, Fox News television programs. Radio: Bennett (rarely — I’m not usually up that early, thank goodness), Ingraham, Limbaugh, Hannity, Medved, Hewitt, Levin. TV: Hannity, Beck, Greta. (Can’t stand O’Reilly, but to each his own.) Watching Beck right now. Each time I watch, it’s the same: “OMG!!!! There | Read More »

Arizona Sing-A-Long: Read the Dang Immigration Law!
Hat tip to Drudge and The Hill (and I apologize in advance if someone has already posted this — I looked but couldn’t find it so I thought you’d all enjoy it and The Hill article about it): I especially liked “reading helps you know what you’re talking about.” Oh, and I hope my disappeared Recommend button will come back soon! For Liberty, ColdWarrior, PC | Read More »
David Brooks: Why didn’t you tell Ben to become a precinct committeeman?
The latest from “I’ll look down my nose at ya” David Brooks. Brooks’s mythical everyman Ben is just too darn stupid, apparently, to be involved in party politics. And Brooks ain’t about to tell him that if he would just get to his local Republican Party committee meeting to become a “card carrying member” of the Republican Party, along with thousands of others who think | Read More »
This they’ll defend. Yuck.
The official seal of the U.S. Army dates back to the Revolutionary War and includes the slogan “This We’ll Defend” with symbols signifying why our forefathers were fighting for independence from England and its King. You can learn more here. As we head into the rest of the 2010 election primary elections and to the general election, we should remind ourselves that every Democrat candidate | Read More »
Gee, Maybe the Los Angeles City Council should boycott California because of California’s illegal immigrant law
California’s anti-illegal immigration law, Penal Code Section 834b, strangely enough, is similar to Arizona’s new anti-illegal immigration law, SB 1070 (although California’s Section 834b doesn’t apply until after a lawful arrest, while Arizona’s SB 1070 applies upon a “lawful contact” with law enforcement). Section 834b says every California law enforcement agency SHALL (“shall” implies a mandatory duty), if it suspects the arrested person is in | Read More »
“The White House’s media management practices have drawn quiet criticism from journalists in the past few weeks.”
Today is the 298th day since Opansy’ last unscripted attempt at a real press conference at the White House. And this has “drawn quiet criticism from journalists”! Wow! Such courage from the Fourth Estate. Go here for the “BIG SCOOP” from the The Washington Post. Make sure you read the first comment. For background, go here. Oh, and if you can, please get inside the | Read More »
Is Eric Holder the long lost brother of Nathan Thurm? Here’s Eric: Here’s Nathan: Hat tip to Fox’s Redeye for this idea.

2101 of 3500 of 75,000 denied Bob Bennett
In the end, 2,101 registered Republicans (60 per cent plus 1 of the 3,500 delegates at the nominating convention) decided whether incumbent Republican Sen. Bob Bennett would enjoy the privilege of a chance to be elected on the primary or general election ballot. It’s been reported in the press by one of the Utah Republican Party nominating convention delegates that about 75,000 registered Republicans bothered | Read More »
Joe the Plumber, PC
As in Precinct Committeeman, not “Political Child.” As reported by Ben Smith at Politico. What are YOU waiting for?

J.D. Hayworth “gets it” re the real battle for the soul of the Party
I just received the following e-mail from J.D. Hayworth’s campaign for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Sen. John McCain (I have added some bolding): JD Urges His Supporters to Become Precinct Committeemen You have worked so hard for my campaign…I want to say “thank you!” Thousands of volunteers have shown their support in time, efforts and donations to the J.D. Hayworth campaign to | Read More »
April 27, 2010: Day 279 of Opansy’s ducking the White House Press Corps
April 27, 2010 — Opansy has not had a press conference since last July 22. That is 279 days since he said the Cambridge police “acted stupidly.” Which lead to the ridiculous “Beer Summit.” 279 days since the man who supposedly represents all the people has made himself available for questions from a press corps that, theoretically, is supposed to represent the interests of all | Read More »
Missing from Sen. McCain’s strategy to defeat the Dems: the word “fight”
April 24, 2010 – Today at a town hall meeting in Casa Grande, Arizona, where John McCain was unveiling his and Sen. Kyl’s ten-point plan (better late than never) for securing the Arizona/Mexico border, I got to ask him the first question, which went something like this: Sen. McCain, you said yesterday at a press conference, in response to President Obama’s criticism of the enactment | Read More »
Utah Tea Party: We’ve Taken Over the State GOP
Hat tip to Be John Galt: Newsmax reports that the “tea partiers” and grass roots conservatives in Utah claim to have enough delegates within the Republican Party to effectively “take it over” at the upcoming May 8 convention. In a surprising development that sets the stage for a dramatic political showdown, tea party and grass-roots conservatives tell Newsmax they have seized control of Utah’s GOP | Read More »
Boxer’s primary challenger: “Obama to Save Boxer Like He Saved Corzine!”
If you enjoy watching Debtocrats bad mouth each other, you’ll enjoy this from Mickey Kaus, who is challenging Sen. Babs Boxer in the Debtocrat primary in California (hat tip to RealClearPolitics): Obama to Save Boxer Like He Saved Corzine! And, again, yesterday Opansy had to deal with, perhaps, REAL “tea baggers” at a DNC fundraiser for Babs: Oh, the horror of having to deal with | Read More »
Ohio Tea Partiers shaking up the Ohio GOP by getting INSIDE it.
As I’ve advocated here occasionally (;-)), conservatives become politically relevant when they venture INTO the Republican Party and become “card carrying members” of it — precinct committeemen — so they can actually vote for the Party leadership and, by attending their monthly local Party committee meetings, be in the BEST position to evaluate the various candidates running in primary elections. Well, it appears many conservatives | Read More »
Hostile Tea Bagger crowd heckles Obama over and over and over
No, wait, it was a DNC fundraiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer. You will enjoy the video (hat tip to Drudge and Real Clear Politics): www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2010/04/19/pro-gay_hecklers_repeatedly_interrupt_obama_at_dnc_fundraiser.html All that darn “hollering.” Didn’t Opansy look “presidential” through it all? Especially when he had to run away from the microphones to get Babs to help him? Pathetic. Things are starting to unravel for the man child president. Thank you. | Read More »
The Conservative Grievance Industry almost gets it right.
I have written here a few times about what a good friend of mine has called “The Conservative Grievance Industry.” Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, even Sen. Jim DeMint, and others, have written books ostensibly for the purpose of “saving America.” Indeed, that was the title of DeMint’s book. I’ve scoured those books, looking for concrete “how to” guides relating to the actual internal | Read More »
Meet Karen Cooper: “And you are my people!”
Prediction: Kelly O’Donnell will not be seeking out Karen Cooper for an interview, and this video clip will not be broadcast on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC or CNN. Challenge to you Redstaters who think you can make a video go “viral”: can you make this one go viral? I sure hope so! Thank you. ColdWarrior, PC Conservatives, UNITE! CHANGE the Party and the world by | Read More »
What’s the [precinct committeeman] count?
As you may know, I’ve been banging the drum here at Redstate (and elsewhere) for almost a year and half to get conservatives to get into the Republican Party as precinct committeemen. Thankfully, many of you have taken the necessary steps — you’ve found your local GOP committee meeting, have gone to the meetings, and have done what’s necessary in your state to become a | Read More »
