    VIDEO: Obama is a Foreign Policy Failure

    It’s hard to look around at the world today and feel as though we’re safer than we were before President Obama took office. Yet, this is exactly what he promised would happen when he ran for the office in 2008. The Daily Signal released a new video today highlighting the condition of the world in stark contrast to the lofty promises made by then candidate | Read More »

    *UPDATE* EXCLUSIVE: Emails Show SC Attorney General Concerned About Absentee Voter Compliance

    *Attorney General Wilson’s office has replied to my request for comment which has been added to the bottom of this post.

    Thomas Sowell Makes the Case for Ted Cruz

    I’ve spent most of the last 12 hours debating whether or not conservative hero Thomas Sowell jumped the shark with a recent article he wrote about Senator Ted Cruz. In it, Sowell warns against the politics of self-interest and the dangers of failing to unify at delicate points in history. More to the point, he accuses Ted Cruz of working against such unity and invokes | Read More »

    South Carolina Is About To Get Interesting

    Out of all the Republican primaries taking place across the country, there is only one that I have taken an active interest in seeing a particular outcome. Senator Lindsey Graham has given voters a litany of reasons to doubt his loyalty to the ideals of small government conservatism. But really it boils down to this: why should we have to have a “good enough” Senator | Read More »

    Obama Campaign Requested Birther Jokes

    Obama Campaign Requested Birther Jokes

    Some politicos are upset about a joke that Mitt Romney made today at President Obama’s expense. Romney: ?I love being home, where but the both of us were born. No one asked to see my birth certificate. They know this is where we were born and raised.? The Obama campaign was immediately flabbergasted that Romney would sink so low, releasing this statement. ?Throughout this campaign, | Read More »

    Equal Pay Icon Rallies for Obama. Attendees Unaware of Pay Disparity at White House.

    Lilly Ledbetter is the namesake of the first bill signed by President Obama back in 2009, The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act. The purpose of this act was supposedly to make it easier for women in the workforce to file discrimination lawsuits and demand equal pay for equal work. So pleased with Obama is Mrs. Ledbetter, that she decided to rally on his behalf | Read More »

    For What Do We Fight?

    No, this is not a post defending Todd Akin.  I, in no way endorse the concept (which Akin himself refutes at this point) that “legitimate rape” is a phrase that should ever have entered the American lexicon. In the light of a new day I wanted to offer some final thoughts around how things unfolded yesterday and what it revealed to me. When I found | Read More »

    VIDEO: White House Unavailable for Comment After Explosive Interview

    No time for tough questions from the press, Obama’s team has assured us that he’ll be taking tough questions from the locals as he travels the country. The results are nothing short of the most important moment in the history of electoral politics. Here are some selections from the game changing interviews: Follow @BenHowe

    “Romney Owns the Olympics … and a Horse.”

    Does Romney own the Olympics? Who is Madeleine Albright? How much money is “too much for your own good?” All of these questions are answered at a Madeleine Albright rally in Denver Colorado earlier this week as Caleb Bonham of Revealing Politics hits the street to ask people what their thoughts are on the campaign. Hilarity ensues. Class warfare seems to be working, at least | Read More »

    Obama Administration Continues to Fail on Energy Policy

    One would think that one of the primary requirements of energy independence would be having the ability to collect the energy through which one becomes independent by using. Somehow, this logic escapes the Obama administration as evidenced by their “Five-Year Plan.” However, if their goal was to diminish opportunities for energy resources, they’ve done a magnificent job. It is pretty well established that there is | Read More »
