    A Verdict Doesn’t End the Gosnell Story

    The horrors that unfolded in the clinic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell have rightly shocked and appalled the nation. Such were the atrocities committed in his office that even abortion advocates have recoiled in horror. And today, a Philadelphia jury finally brought Dr. Gosnell to justice, finding him guilty of first degree murder. This monstrous individual–to call him a doctor is no longer fitting–got what he | Read More »

    Keep Shouting: “Taxed Enough Already”

    It’s Tax Day, and across the country as hardworking Americans surrender a chunk of their paychecks to the federal government, many are also standing up to give the government a piece of their minds. In Washington, D.C., in state capitals, in big cities and small towns, Tax Day Tea Party rallies are sounding a refrain that we must keep shouting: “Taxed Enough Already.” That cry | Read More »

    Media Covers up Democrat-Backed Planned Parenthood’s Support for Infanticide

    For almost as long as there have been two parties, there have been accusations of mainstream media bias. Conservatives know it’s real. Liberals insist it’s imagined. Bias is evident not only in how events are covered but also in what is covered—and more importantly what is not covered. Consider two events from last week. First, in North Dakota the governor signed into law bills that | Read More »

    Renew, Grow, Win

    Today the Republican National Committee is gathered in Charlotte, North Carolina, where we are setting the party’s course for the next two years and beyond. Our efforts are focused on three main goals: renewing our party, growing our ranks, and winning more elections. There is one clear, overriding lesson from November: we didn’t have enough voters.

    Biden’s Right: Under Obama, Middle Class Has Been Buried

    The American middle class cannot afford four more years like the last four. Don’t take my word for it. Ask Vice President Joe Biden. At a Tuesday campaign rally, he offered a remarkably candid assessment of the Obama presidency: “the middle class…has been buried in the last four years.” Finally, Joe Biden’s making some sense. As every family struggling to make ends meet knows all | Read More »

    The Time for Action is Now: A Message to Grassroots Conservatives

Will they choose four more years of slow economic growth, or a new direction? This means now is the time to get involved! Here’s how: This coming weekend is Super Saturday, where volunteers across the country will be mobilizing to get the word | Read More »

    The Flexible President Sees No Threats

    Over the past few months President Obama has argued that Hugo Chavez is not a threat, offered post-election flexibility to Vladimir Putin, and granted visas to Raul Castro’s daughter and other Cuban officials. It almost seems the president is going out of his way to undermine American strength. He’s emboldening enemies and nations who frequently oppose our interests—at a time when they also happen to | Read More »

    Doing Fine?

    Obama can’t fix a problem he can’t see. No, you heard him right. At a press conference this morning, the President of the United States actually said, “The private sector is doing fine.” Mr. President, are you paying attention? Take off the rose-colored glasses. (Although, thanks to your fashion industry fundraising friends, I’m sure they’re very stylish rose-colored glasses.) The private sector is small businesses. | Read More »

    On Jobs, Obama is Running from Reality

    Today’s extremely troubling jobs report is yet another sad reminder that President Obama’s policies simply are not working—and that we need a president who understands the economy. Last night on CNN former President Bill Clinton praised Mitt Romney’s “sterling” career in the private sector. This morning Steny Hoyer echoed that sentiment, underscoring the importance of the private sector in growing our economy. While Mitt Romney’s | Read More »

    While the Middle Class is Hurting, Obama Hobnobs with Hollywood

    The Celebrity-in-Chief heads to a Hollywood blockbuster fundraiser this afternoon. George Clooney stars as the host. Chef Wolfgang Puck plays a supporting role as caterer. And Obama is expected to rake in as much as $12 million, making it the biggest presidential fundraiser ever. Of course, President Obama has a long history of hobnobbing with the Hollywood glitterati. He’s pitched movies to mogul Harvey Weinstein. | Read More »
