Before jumping into the political arena I spent thirteen years raising my five children and building a successful business with my husband, Gabe. After years of being a sideline political junkie I decided it was time to take action. In January, 2008 I began volunteering for the Jason Chaffetz for Congress campaign and soon after became political director. Chaffetz ended up knocking out a 12 year incumbent RINO in the 2008 Utah Republican primary, and went on to win the U.S. House seat by 37 points in the General election.


    Energizer Bunny Obama Abandons Fox News Boycott

    The ends must justify the means, or Obama is desperate.  A majority of Americans do not like his health care overhaul plans.  He has done everything imaginable (many times over) to persuade us that he knows best.  His plethora of town hall meetings devoted to the topic of health care reform haven’t swayed us.  His excessive speeches to the nation have fallen on deaf ears.  | Read More »


    There’s a new strain of Potomac Fever spreading through Washington. Democrats seem to be most susceptible to the disease. Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) is the latest victim to succumb in a string of illnesses. Potomac Fever is usually associated with the love of Washington; the love of power and politics. This new strain of the bug, however, has had quite the opposite effect. As Josh | Read More »

    Another One Bites the Dust

    Today Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), son of the late Ted Kennedy, will join thirty-one of his House colleagues on the crowded retirement bandwagon. But that’s the little picture. The big picture is this: What will the United States do without a Kennedy in Congress? Besides a two year vacancy from the time John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960 until his little brother, Teddy, | Read More »

    The Supreme Court Attacked from the Bully’s Pulpit

    In an unprecedented act of bad manners the POTUS used the SOTU to blast the SCOTUS — while they sat only a few feet in front of him. It appears that Justice Alito mouthed the words “not true” after Obama pronounced that last week’s Supreme Court decision would “open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our | Read More »

    Democrats Actually Admit to a Mistake

    Democrats admit they “need a new game plan” for the 2010 elections. Their Blame-Bush strategy has clearly failed. It worked great in ’06 and ’08, but Americans are now ready for a little accountability. That’s bad news for liberals who hold a sneering distain for accountability. It’s also bad news for their mystified campaign consultants who are scratching their heads in confusion. Back to the | Read More »

    Economic Stimulus Created or Saved at Least 2 Million Liberals

    Here we go again.  Last night the White House released another self-congratulatory report boasting new “jobs created or saved” numbers.  This quarter the number is “between 1.7 and 2 million” jobs.  In the Grand Experiment known as counting the “jobs created or saved” by the economic stimulus plan, the Grand Experiment Schemers have concocted yet another way to count the bogus jobs.    This quarter’s | Read More »

    In lieu of Waterboarding, Panty Bomber is Offered a Cookie for Information

    Instead of interrogating the Christmas day would-be bomber and trying him in a military tribunal, the Obama administration has decided to use a kinder, gentler approach.  They will try Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (a.k.a. Captain Underpants) in civilian court.    It is interesting to note that the Fox News Channel and Rush Limbaugh can get the Obama administration’s knickers in a knot merely by espousing conservative | Read More »

    Obama’s buddy, Chavez: Capitalism is road to Hell

    Venezuelan Dictator Hugo Chavez received thunderous applause and standing ovations during his anti-capitalism speech at the climate change summit in Copenhagen yesterday. The Marxist dictator strayed from his notes and ranted for 45 minutes — far beyond his allotted five minute time. Chavez charged that capitalism is what’s ruining the planet. He said: “A ghost is stalking the streets of Copenhagen…it’s capitalism, capitalism is that | Read More »

    Doomed or Duped?

    Global warming peddlers in Copenhagen just proved that they not only don’t practice what they preach, but they don’t even believe what they preach. According to “Climate-Changeologists” the polar ice caps will be completely melted within FIVE years. And yet, the Super Duper Smart People in Copenhagen just decided to delay decisions on “preventing catastrophic climate change” for SIX years. Correct me if I’m wrong, but if | Read More »

    The omnibus bill’s so full of pork it’s oinking – and some Republicans smell like a pig sty

    Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed its omnibus spending bill which combined six “regular” appropriations bills into one giant monstrosity. As is typical with such bills, members of congress lined up to discretely stuff goodies for their own districts into the bill’s 2,500 pages. Let me point out some lowlights of this bill: It contains a 12 percent spending increase over 2009 It contains | Read More »
