Another good thing happened, caused by conservatives becoming precinct committeemen in AZ
[Promoted from the diaries. The work of conservative activists within the party structure will be an invaluable tool in the 2014 and 2016 elections. From helping select candidates, either through caucus or primary, to running ground game operations in general elections, much of this work is done by committed conservative volunteers who are often overlooked. I hope to see more reports like the one below | Read More »
Latest, Most Blatant Example of the MSM-Obama Cult
Did you see that speech last night? Yeah, me neither, but apparently Obama is a hero. Mark Murray, a guy you never heard of but who is the senior political editor for NBC News, tweeted this morning: Obama’s ending on Remsburg wasn’t just a story about America — it also was a story about Obama. Nothing has ever come easy Remsburg is Sgt. First Class | Read More »
Open Thread: Everything is a Metaphor
In closing out the State of the Union address President Obama told a story about a hero, a combat veteran who served proudly during 10 tours and was nearly killed in that service. His name is Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg Obviously this was all a metaphor about Obama growing up in Hawaii, attending Harvard, eventually becoming President of the United States, and the myriad | Read More »
2014 Millennial State of the Union
From the diaries..
At the State of the Union address, President Obama said, “too many young people entering the workforce today will see the American Dream as an empty promise.”
That’s one thing the President and I can agree on. In fact, many young Americans attempting to enter the workforce today already see the American Dream being crushed by the President’s failing policies.

A simple tax code
Sometimes it is nice to dream about how things could be: Let’s imagine what a simple tax code would look like. The Feds would derive revenue 3 (and only 3) ways: 1) Import tarrifs and travel fees (passports, international airplane landing fees, rail crossing fees, etc.). I know this may seem horrible, but lets consider that keeping international gateways open is an important function of | Read More »
Oklahoma Senate Race UPDATE
Now there’s three Republican candidates for Senate here in Oklahoma. Fifth House District Rep. James Lankford, State House Speaker T.W. Shannon and paramedic James Weger. Initially I was undecided since Bridenstine was considering to jump in, but since he’s not going to I’ll throw my support behind T.W. Shannon since he’s proven himself as Speaker of the House in our legislature. I have concerns about | Read More »
Errors & Omissions: Protecting the State of the Union From the Statements the President Made
Errors and omissions (E&O) is the coverage that protects you from another individual or company that wants to hold you responsible for something that you provided which does not give expected results. Does the President have coverage? There were many statements made last night during the State of the Union that didn’t seem to match up with reality for many Americans. Going through the transcript | Read More »
Democratic Leadership Has No One But Themselves To Blame For Gridlock
One of the themes I expect President Obama to complain about in the SOTU address (as well as what will likely be a theme for the DNC in 2014) is the fake crisis of gridlock. And yet the Democratic leadership in Congress has perpetuated gridlock through their own actions. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid love to talk about the virtues of bipartisanship. And yet when it | Read More »

Crossfire Targeted For Sparking Interest In Civic Affairs
Since it was first broadcast, CNN’s Crossfire was the place to go for verbal pugilism in the days before the ascendancy of Fox News and the pervasiveness of talk radio. With its return to the airwaves after an absence of eight years, the program’s latest incarnation elicited visceral reactions before it was even broadcast. In the August 28, 2013 edition of USA Today, Rem Rieder | Read More »
Lies & Propaganda in Vogue for 2014 – Liberal News Media
Liberal News media presents their daily garbage of the day hoping to snag a few more unsuspecting victims with regurgitated canned information that only the desperate entitlement crowd might find interesting. They’ll promote infanticide by hiding behind the women’s rights movement, which is pretty much like saying women have the right to shack up and have one night stands and if pregnancy results it’s their | Read More »
State of The Union Preview (all five-hundred-seven seconds!)
Nobody told me (there’d be days like these)… The older in days I become, the more convinced I am that Goerge Washington’s District of Columbia’s ruling-class is an amorphous that harkens back to that Democrat-Republican Party. However <~~ that 'dash' has become a euphamism for 'bipartisianship' that #TheMan must need we subjects to believe in, or else. Anywho… for your viewing pleasure, here is tonight’s | Read More »

The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. The traditional, incandescent light bulb is going extinct this year.

Obama’s War on Women
After watching Lila Rose ably defend every woman’s right to life on Crossfire, I have been toying with an argument that bypasses the viability and preference minutia. This is probably written more technically than I would like, but it communicates what I believe to be a strong case for the inherent contradictions in the pro-abortion argument. I pray that we recognize that there are 2 | Read More »
Andy Cuomo’s Dirty Laundry
Andy & Infanticide – Infants no right to life On Sept. 13 of 1984 of that year, another Governor Cuomo, Andrew’s father, Mario, famously laid out his contention that being personally opposed to abortion – the taking of innocent human life – and being a public advocate for its legality and subsequent policy accommodations was a morally sound position for a Catholic in politics.

Why Does John Kasich Keep Lying About Obamacare?

Obama’s State Of The Union Won’t Match His Policies
This afternoon President Obama will give his State of the Union address. He will look into the teleprompter on his left and right and read the speech that was written for him by some of the best speech writers in the world. It will be very engaging and passionate. It will be patriotic and emotional. It will also be totally inconsistent with his actions and policies | Read More »
Could George W. Bush Be The Last Republican President?
Credit: Kevin Lamarque/Reuters NOTE: Link to 2012 RedState piece. Last week I received an email blast from the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus and it began: Friend, I need your opinion: who would you like to see as the Republican presidential nominee in 2016? You’re one of a few conservative leaders I’ve selected to take our 2016 Presidential | Read More »
Georgia Republicans: Shills for Amnesty
Well here we go, I’m writing this article on Monday afternoon before the State of The Union address and we already know what Obama will be pushing and unfortunately what the GOP will also be shoving down the throats of Americans.

Lonely Feminist Who Hates Motherhood Tries Again
From the diaries… This weekend, people around the internet, including me, pushed back against a post by a blogger named Amy Glass, who wrote that motherhood was an easy and worthless decision that prevents women from being all they can be. Today I find she has responded to the responses, and she just cant help but put her foot in her mouth again. First, she | Read More »
The Entrenched Liberal Bureaucracy Decides Who is Guilty
The media making a big deal over Dinesh D;Suoza’s (sp?) “Illegal” campaign contribution http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/dinesh-dsouza-prosecution-obama-political/2014/01/26/id/549091 is just another example of how an entrenched liberal bureaucracy feels emboldened to selectively apply laws to political enemies. It’s so easy to do these days, just read this: http://www.amazon.com/Three-Felonies-Day-Target-Innocent/dp/1594035229 These are scary times because good people are being persecuted or intimidated into compliance.

The Watercooler ~ America’s Judicial Hellholes
Returning from a short sabbatical brought on by — among other things — growing weary of too many negative reports on the state of my state, California, I stumbled upon an interesting report from the American Tort Reform Association that ranks the six most egregious judicial hellholes in the U.S. each year. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, California ranks at the top of the list for | Read More »
Oklahoma Lawmaker Proposes Privatizing Marriage
While it took awhile to arrive where I am, I’m full proponent of getting marriage out of government’s tentacles. Though looking at the political landscape I was pessimistic of that happening anytime soon. But this an instance where I’m happy to be wrong. Right in backyard (not literally cause I live in Washington County) is State Rep. Mike Turner (R-Edmund) who’s proposing a bill that | Read More »
True School Choice is a beautiful thing
Imagine with me, if you will, that you just bought a new home. You are so excited. The rooms are spacious, the neighborhood lovely, and the surrounding community is spectacular.

You wander around your new dwelling staring at boxes and dreaming of the future. | Read More »
2014 Conservative Senate & House Challengers
Updated and edited to include new information I posted a comment and diary recently about publishing a list of all primary challengers to the entrenched beltway establishment fat cats. It’s done, and it’s at http://ballotpedia.org/Portal:Elections/ The Madison Project is also showcasing candidates and providing details about the candidates’ positions. http://madisonproject.com/ I named the last diary “Do Your Friends Know Who The Challengers Are?”.

What conservatives can to learn from Hollywood: Good stories told well can influence political perspective
Watching movies are one of my favorite pastimes. Our favorite movies say a lot about us… although I’m not exactly sure what. My top five (in no particular order) are Gladiator, Valley Girl, Galaxy Quest, Lost in Translation and probably Tombstone. Movies are a unique form of entertainment because they are touchstones, shared experiences which so many Americans have in common. Lines like “I’m walking | Read More »
The World’s Worst Idea
Comes news that House GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy has endorsed comprehensive legalization for persons unlawfully in this country, and predicts the entire House “leadership team” may follow suit. Presumably, the leadership epiphany will be embodied in the “immigration principles” which House Speaker John Boehner will unveil at this year’s appropriately named “Republican retreat.” Thus, this package is expected to include: -a legalization “pathway to amnesty,” | Read More »
The conservatives who achieved this were those who got involved “inside” our Party. Period.
I’ve posted several blogs on the Spartanburg Tea Party page and by now you’ve seen the news. AZGOP censures John McCain. My friend ColdWarrior had everything to do with this, along with other like minded, and laser focused patriots in AZ. Today he shared this: FreedomWorks did not achieve this. Nor did Tea Party Patriots. Nor did Americans for Prosperity. Nor did . . . | Read More »
Charging Dinesh: Obama Tries to Jail Another Filmmaker
Just a few weeks ago, the media and the left (but I repeat myself) were outraged over New Jersey’s chief executive using the power of government to punish his political enemies. Gov Chris Christie was accused of closing a couple of lanes to a bridge, and this was evidence that he was not fit to lead our great country. Now, Dinesh D’Souza has been indicted | Read More »
Gay Marriage and the Generational Divide
Currently, twenty states allow gay marriage. This represents 123 million people, or 39.2% of the United States population. When states are added in which recognize civil unions, the percentage increases to a little over 44%. With the exception of Utah whose current status is in limbo all the states can be firmly placed in the blue state category. A very important point must be made | Read More »
The Clinton Fixer (John Podesta) Just Invaded Our White House
Obama has been rescued by George Soros and his “top gun” (John Podesta) – be prepared to see heads roll and many new appointments in the next 3 years. Most of all brace yourselves as Obama signs one Executive Order after the other as we head into the 2014 November Election. John Podesta is big on Executive Orders and defiantly intends to use them to | Read More »
How To Stop The Gay Marriage Tidal Wave Before It Is Too Late
The social conservative movement has fought the hard fight against gay marriage, but is now in a recent and rapid retreat. Not by choice but by force. In 2004, Massachusetts was the first state to establish marriage licensing for homosexual couples. Since then, 16 states have join Massachusetts in their decision. In 6 of the states the decision was made by courts, in 8 it | Read More »
Arizona GOP State Committeemen censure John McCain — Get “Inside” Our Party. No?
Now up at Drudge. Linking to The Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/arizona-gop-censures-mccain-for-liberal-record/2014/01/25/939f1bcc-862e-11e3-aff8-191f8d178325_story.html Again, this did not “just happen.” It happened because enough conservatives got inside the Arizona Republican Party by becoming elected precinct committeemen where they live in their own “political neighborhood” — their precinct. Then, they elected enough conservatives to become a voting majority of conservatives. All the while they were getting to know one another | Read More »
Don’t Look Down On Me, Ms. Feminist. I’m Not Sorry For My Choices, Either.
This morning I followed a link on Facebook that took me to this post. It’s written by a “feminist” and the point she wants to make is that being a wife and mother is not a valid choice, or even a difficult one. Let me first say, Ms. Glass, that I have been both sides of this feminine coin. I have owned my own business. | Read More »
Why The Hell The Complaining!? Let’s Actually Kick The RINOs Out!
All I’ve seen of late is doom about the GOP snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Taking immigration with amnesty component, sidling Obamacare in process etc. Okay fine enough, but can we change that for God’s sake? Daniel Horowitz and Erick Erickson to their credit actually try to make a difference by endorsing challengers like Matt Bevin in KY. I fully believe the GOP | Read More »
Soros Took Over our White House – Jarrett Demoted & Plouffe Gone
Basically there’s been quite a shake – up in the White House and the Democrats and George Soros are doing the shaking. They’ve been the brunt of all Obama’s political blunders and have grown weary of their Commander in Chief’s screw ups for the past five years. Senate and House Democrats are venting their frustrations over the ACA and worried that if it keeps self | Read More »
Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?
On Friday, there were somewhat conflicting articles in the press which may help determine what happens this year in the 2014 midterm elections and in the 2016 presidential election, especially with regards to the Republican Party. The first report was about a Gallup poll which indicated that a record high was recorded for respondents who said they were dissatisfied with their current representatives in Washington. | Read More »
Whose Responsibility is It?
God makes all of us to be round pegs in round holes. In a free society if we end up a round peg in a square hole…..that’s on us.

If we live in a society that chooses what, | Read More »
What is the Inequality?
President Obama plans on focusing, “like a laser beam” I am sure, on the topic of income inequality in the upcoming State of the Union address next Tuesday 28 January. This should come as a surprise to those of us paying attention because during the five years of Obama’s administration there has been the largest increase in the income disparity in quite a long time. | Read More »
Who’s Afraid of the “Big, Bad Tea Party”?
As I understand the Tea Party, it isn’t a political party like the American Democratic and Republican Parties, or even the American Communist and Socialist Parties. It isn’t organized on a national basis. It doesn’t have a central headquarters. I don’t think it even has a centralized web page. It’s not well funded. It’s loosely affiliated: mostly locally organized groups bound by an idea. It’s not a new idea. In fact, it’s the | Read More »
How The Left Manipulates Terms
Note: I started writing back in late September but fell short of ideas. I’ve written about this before, but this requires more attention than what it’s gotten. Most of everyone tend to call them “liberals”. The left first started playing with it by late 1910s when the American people became hostile to progressive with Woodrow Wilson entering us into WWI when he initially promised not to | Read More »

The Left Demands the IRS “Redouble” Targeting Tea Party and Conservative Groups
Now that that the Obama Administration has determined, after a “thorough” investigation conducted by a partisan political donor, that targeting the Tea Party for their political beliefs isn’t criminal, Senator Chuck Schumer is back to his old antics.
Sen. Schumer is calling for the IRS to renew its targeting of the Tea Party and to “redouble those efforts immediately.”

The real significance of Chuckie Schumer’s insipid speech: he’s running to be the next Senate minority leader
Chuckie Schumer made a really dumb speech yesterday..the idea of Tea Party “elites” shoveling tens of millions to support radical right wing candidates is bizarre, as is his plan to somehow bypass the Constitution to prevent these types from ever getting elected. It’s been pretty much laughed at and dismissed, even in the MSM, but it’s worth while attempting to delve into Chuckie’s mind as | Read More »
The Growing Backlash On #Marijuana Legalization
Last time I spoke about marijuana legalization, I spoke out against about the amoral (please note I didn’t say immoral) maijuana that will lead to big government. Now I look at the growing (pun not intended, this is not a joke) backlash on marijuana legalization. And I can’t believe I am saying this to start this article, but I actually agree with Patrick Kennedy here: | Read More »
UPDATE: Freedom to Assault
Last week, I told you about the case of two abolitionists in Norman, OK being assaulted while speaking up for their pre-born neighbors. I showed you video of these abolitionists preaching at the abortuary and video of the assault itself. We talked about the Norman City Attorney refusing to prosecute the assailant. The refusal of the Norman government to insist upon, or at least pursue, justice is chilling for all who would seek to love the least amongst us. We are told that our right to free speech is not as important as the right to assault; if that weren’t shocking enough, even those who are allegedly “on the same side” as abolitionists also seem to hold this same position

De Facto President on a Rampage
The “De facto President’s” hit list for 2014 include S & P, O’Keefe, Israel, Conservative actors and all who oppose or disagree with her Socialist agenda to destroy our Nation.

KeystoneXL or how environmentalists have hijacked our national interest.
Something is seriously wrong in the White House. President Obama’s foreign policy track record has gone from bad to worse with each new mishandled crisis. Appalingly, he has proven unable to take action and stop bloodshed in Syria and has gone against the long-standing US tradition of not negotiating with terrorist states by signing a disastrous deal with Iran. And now our dear leader has | Read More »
25 Missouri Union Bosses Who Hate Workplace Freedom
Opposition to making Missouri the 25th workplace freedom state is driven by union bosses, who currently have the power to take mandatory dues from Missourians in unionized workplaces.
Forced unionism helps union bosses build front groups like “We Are Missouri” to broadcast their talking points. It also helps them buy political allies to fight reforms like the Freedom to Work Act proposed in the Missouri House.
