A Simple Question About Mitch McConnell
In 2010, as many of you know, Mitch McConnell said, “[t]he single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term President.” By his own admission, Senator McConnell failed to achieve his single most important goal. In light of this failure, why did he keep the office of Minority Leader for even one second past the moment of Romney’s | Read More »
Veteran Denied Access To Shaheen Event…
From Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire (July 14, 2014) – This morning, Senator Jeanne Shaheen held an event at the Concord City Auditorium. It was, according to her press release, to “discuss the difference she makes for veterans” and “call for passage of the Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act.” However, when Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire’s Executive Director, | Read More »
The Modern Ethical Corruption of Morality
Allow me to preface my first diary entry with a confession. As a younger man I was most certainly “liberal” and “progressive”. I applauded Roe versus Wade and viewed William O. Douglas as my favorite Supreme Court justice. At the same time, I felt fervently anti-communist and could not for the life of me understand anyone’s belief that Che Guevara was admirable in any way, | Read More »
The Right To Discriminate
Lately, there have been several high profile instances of Christians being attacked for discriminating against vices such as homosexuality and abortion. There was the baker who refused to make a cake for a gay wedding. And of course, there was Hobby Lobby’s opposition to paying for abortion-inducing birth control. In both of these instances, as well as others, the common defense by conservatives has been | Read More »
IRS: Maybe Lois Lerner Emails Aren’t So “Lost” After All, Oh, And We Lost a Few More Too

Majority Leader McCarthy Walking Back Opposition To Ex-Im Bank
Days after being named the new House majority leader congressman Kevin McCarthy(R-CA) went on Fox News Sunday and was asked about the upcoming(Sept) deadline to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank, something seen by most critics as a textbook example of crony capitalism. McCarthy told Chris Wallace that he did support allowing the Ex-Im Bank’s authorization to expire. From FNS’s transcript: WALLACE: Authority for the Export-Import Bank, | Read More »
Governor Nathan Deal needs a “Scott Walker moment”
The latest polling shows the Governor’s race in Georgia has Governor Deal trailing Jason Carter by 8 points. A few days ago Erick Erickson had Governor Nathan Deal on his show in Atlanta to discuss the latest attacks on him regarding Ethics investigations. You get the sense that the Deal campaign believes that attacks on him in regard to ethics investigations are keeping him behind in the | Read More »
John Feehery to GOP: Stop Opposing Crony Capitalism
John Feehery call your office. It appears someone has signed into your computer and is emailing columns out under your name that make you look like a simpleton. The Wall Street Journal has fallen for the ruse. They just published a column under your name lamenting conservative opposition to crony capitalism. Feehery is everything that is wrong with the modern day GOP. With his phone | Read More »
Ga Dems with nothing better to do slander young conservatives
You’ve got to hand it to some folks – takes real chutzpah to ridicule someone on the internets. Down in coastal Georgia, some Democrats are apparently aiding one of the longshot candidates (Amy Tavio) of their party in the congressional race to succeed Rep. Jack Kingston in Congress. Given the district’s Republican bent, the odds of it going blue aren’t overwhelming. So maybe that explains | Read More »
NH Democrat Governor Embraces Fracking?
New Hampshire’s Democrat governor, Maggie Hassan, violated her own ban on travel to take a trade mission to Turkey. She justified this, according to many, by pointing to a reported 22% increase in exports From New Hampshire. That might make some sense if it were true. Last week, Business NH Magazine pointed out that of the 22% increase in “exports”( that Governor Hassan’s administration was | Read More »
Marita Noon: Australia shoots down climate lobby’s scare mongering

Reflections on 13 dead Israeli soldiers; and understanding the meaning of the threat Israel faces ( and how the MSM ignores it)
Israel suffered 13 dead soldiers in one day’s operation in Gaza this weekend. The cumulative loss to the IDF is higher, and sadly, will grow even more before operations against Hamas are concluded. Based upon population size, Israel’s loss of 13 troops in one day is the equivalent of the US losing 500 soldiers. That is a full Batallion being wiped out in one day. The US | Read More »
More Anti-Religion Crap from the Left
Amanda Marcotte is a feminist blogger and “journalist” best known for her feminist/Leftist views. She was a very vocal voice during the Duke lacrosse team controversy and allegations of rape. Even though the charges were dropped and the prosecutor eventually disbarred, in the mind of Marcotte the lacrosse players were still guilty. Illustrative of the hypocritical and bizarre mind of the Leftist, while decrying this | Read More »
Israel kills a few Palestinians – the whole world wails! Muslims kill 200,000 Syrians – the whole world yawns
First, let’s be clear about one thing; I’m not trying to be flippant about the horrific civilian death tolls all across the middle east. But it’s interesting, and well, obvious to note the…. shall we say “discrepancy” in how the MSM deals with the two body counts. Israel has started an operation in Gaza to degrade Hamas. The terrorists are launching thousands of rockets into | Read More »
Obama to non-profits: celebrate LGBT or else

What 3% can do
Throughout the history of the US, there has always been a small minority of people stepping up to right the wrongs bestowed up on them by some far away power. In most cases the stand was appropriate and the temporary violence justified the end means. In some cases the government did the wrong thing and helped to ensure a future of the overbearing government we | Read More »
Majority Leader McCarthy: House Will Secure Border And Reunite Families
At a press conference in Peoria, IL for former congressman Bobby Schilling, new House majority leader Kevin McCarthy stated that the House of Representatives will pass measures in the coming days and weeks that will help secure the southern border with Mexico and that the thousands of illegal immigrant families will be reunited. Estimates are that 57,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors have entered the US | Read More »
The ongoing debacle at the border — the Administration knew it was coming for two years
No less than the mainstay of the liberal media, The Washington Post, in this morning’s edition delivered a blistering article, “Obama’s aides were warned of brewing border crisis” about the ongoing debacle at the border. There’s no reading between the lines in this article, because the incompetence of this Administration and the placing of politics and political goals ahead of the lives of children can’t | Read More »
The Land of Opportunity Lost
From near and far, we have come to America seeking a better life but now the definition of a better life is in dispute. In the beginning, the first settlements in this new land went horribly wrong as individuals were expected to give and receive to the common store, indentured servitude to a form of government or from each according to his ability, to each | Read More »
Today, we Conservatives face a real dilemma. If we vote for the squishy RINOs that the establishment by hook and crook puts before us on the ballot, we perpetuate their belief that we are not serious. They believe that we have no choice but to vote for their tards. They believe that in the end we will show up in November. They believe that we will accept that the Senate is too important to vote against McConnell and Cochran. They believe that Cantor was just a one-time thing, and that they can recruit blacks to destroy quality Tea-Party candidates.

The Watercooler ~ The Awesomeness of Salvation
Our pseudo-Christian president, as well as the Democrat Party whose base is now primarily comprised of progressives, hate God. They would vehemently deny such statements, but those of us who know and love Him can say it boldly because we feel and witness daily how their deeds and their belief system betray His true nature. After suffering now for nearly six years under the leadership | Read More »
How Conservatives can get the RNC to address the MS “Establishment problem” right now.
Much has already been written about what Republican “Establishment” people did in the Mississippi primary run-off election on behalf of incumbent Thad Cochran. Some have written a letter to Republican Party National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to “investigate” the “potentially illegal” activities of these ”Establishment” people. Chairman Priebus might acquiesce to these demands, but I doubt it. Why do I doubt it? Because, looking at the names of | Read More »
Demographics Disprove Fraudulent Palestinian Claims
Palestinian apologists have been muddying the waters with fallacious claims for decades. Over the past few weeks, those stories have accelerated both in the pace with which they are being posted and the depths of their anger and falsehoods. It is time to set the record straight with facts and figures. The truth is that the entire issue of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as presented by | Read More »
C stands for “Checkmate” in Chuck C. Johnson
It’s been very educational and entertaining watching Chuck Johnson in action over the last couple of weeks exposing what’s happening in Mississippi. One of the things that Chuck has said that has really stuck with me in regard to media and the enemy: “First they ignore you, Then they mock you, Then they fight you, Then you win”. MY RADIO INTERVIEW WITH CHUCK C JOHNSON | Read More »
Victimhood, Martyrdom, and the Sword
Recent events in the Middle East have clearly demonstrated that as all eyes are on Iraq, ISIS and Iran’s nuclear aspirations, the festering problems between Palestinians and Israel are very much real. The flash point for the recent violence is the kidnapping and murder of three Jewish hikers in the West Bank. But even before this act, Hamas had been firing rockets into Israel- a | Read More »
How about conservatives pull the lever for Alison Grimes in response to the 100 Kansas Republican Cry Babies Endorsing a Democrat for Governor

Meet the Lame-Duck Incumbent Running for Re-election

School Choice Quietly Becoming Major Topic Without Mainstream Media Coverage
ORIGINALLY POSTED ON WATCHDOG WIRE The simple and beneficial idea of school choice has quietly started to become a major topic in state and local governments across the nation. Not surprisingly, countless school districts are beginning to see the positive results that getting a better education brings, despite not being covered by the mainstream media.

Barack Obama and his ‘I don’t care’ presidency
Listening to the some of the reactions from reporters and media commentators over recent events, specifically, the downing of flight MH17 over Ukraine and the ground invasion of Gaza by the Israelis, many of their reactions have been of dismay, akin to what is the President’s reaction, what is he going to do, etc. Last week, while thousands of children continued to flood across Harry | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ Recommend it, baby!
Before RedState redesigned their website (in July of 2012 I believe), we had an awesome feature that was lost in the transition.

Hamas has no right to exist
The Left and its media footmen want the story of Israel versus Palestine to be compelling. They want it so badly that they invent a two-sided narrative for what is nakedly evident in human history as a one-sided issue. Clearly, Hamas has no right to exist.

Maybe we should’ve listened to this guy…
The following is from a guy who made the best case for staying out of Iraq and could be used for any anti-war argument really. If you’re going to go in and try to topple Saddam Hussein, you have to go to Baghdad. Once you’ve got Baghdad, it’s not clear what you do with it. It’s not clear what kind of government you would put in place | Read More »
Barbours unapologetic for racial tone of ads
This piece at National Review has quite a few interesting things to note about the involvement of Haley Barbour’s political machine in Mississippi. The political-action committee that aired the ads raised eyebrows from the outset. For one thing, it had the same address, phone number, e-mail domain, and leader — the bishop Ronnie Crudup — as the Jackson-based New Horizon Church International. Crudup told Mississippi’s Clarion-Ledger earlier this month | Read More »
Vox.com employs anti-Israel propagandists
Everybody’s making fun of voxster Zack Beauchamp these days, even Moe Lane pitched in (thanks Moe). The dynamic dumbasses Beauchamp and Fisher have published more lies per column-inch than anyone since Goebbels and Fritsche.
While many thinking people pass this off as simple laziness or stupidity, I suggest here’s a darker motive here. Beauchamp and Fisher are propagandists, and they hate Israel. Since February this year, Zack Beauchamp and Max Fisher have made a name for themselves on vox.com as Hamas apologists and Israel bashers. Before that, they were with the Washington Post, hardly a love den for Israel (WaPo recently published one of the most offensive animations I’ve seen online in Post-TV).

The Court Next Term: Three More Potential Blockbusters- Part 2
Making their way to the US Supreme Court are three cases that have the potential to become blockbuster cases. It is difficult to see the Court denying them. They involve Guantanamo detainees, the potential fate of Obamacare, and gay marriage. Recently, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, sitting en banc (but with only seven justices) ruled that the convictions of three Guantanamo detainees were invalid. | Read More »

The Out of Body President Hovers While Americans Are Murdered
Have we ever seen a president of the great United States of America more detached from reality as the one in office now? Why is that? How can he be so cold and callous to preface a speech on infrastructure and continue on like nothing in the world has happened, including the blatant murder of maybe 23 Americans and while our best friend in the | Read More »
What Would Cause President Obama to Cancel a Fundraiser?
Re-posted from PJ Media What “tragedy” would be horrific enough for President Obama to cancel his usual schedule of speeches, lunches and fundraisers? A commercial airliner shot down over Ukraine with Americans aboard? No. How about a terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11, killing our ambassador and three others? No. Perhaps news that Israel has begun a ground offensive | Read More »

Obama & Reid to Israel: Show Restraint While We Fund Hamas
With the escalation of violence in Israel, now is the time to cut off aid to the Palestinian Authority, which is allied with Hamas in a “unity government.” Senator Rand Paul has a bill that would do just that.

SURPRISE! Louisiana’s Privatized Charity Hospitals Come In $52 Million Under Budget
Go figure, right? We all just KNEW that privatizing a bunch of government-run hospitals for poor people would explode the budget. Because that’s happened…never. Louisiana spent $52 million less than was budgeted for Gov. Bobby Jindal’s privatization deals for the LSU hospitals that provide care to the uninsured in the recently ended fiscal year, according to data provided by the state health department. Jindal’s health secretary, | Read More »
Sen. Lamar Alexander must be in deep trouble
This only can mean President Barack Obama’s favorite Tennessee Republican, Sen. Lamar Alexander, is in deep primary doo-doo: “State Rep.

The Next Front in the Battle over Obamacare
**Promoted from the diaries. – Aaron** You may be seeing a concerted attempt by liberals and their media allies to convince you that Obamacare is 1) succeeding; 2) losing political impact for the midterms; and 3) being emphasized less frequently by Republicans on the campaign trail. In fact, all three of these are false. Just this week, we are seeing the latest front in the | Read More »
