The Hidden Tax of the Regulatory State

    Many of us in the Tea Party have focused intensely on the cost of big government to the federal budget.  Undoubtedly, this cost will be born directly by future taxpayers in the form of more taxes, higher interest payments on debt, and less economic growth.  While we must continue hammering home this point, we must also understand that many Americans still fail to connect the | Read More »

    Trash Talk #cruztovictory

    Obama’s NLRB Nominees Get Support From The Usual Suspects…And A Few Unlikely Ones Too

    The Obama Administration, Senate Democrats and their union handlers must be concerned about the Supreme Court’s hearing the issue of Obama’s “recess” appointments at the National Labor Relations Board.

    NLRB - Union Logo

    Frankly, based on the amount of disingenuous hyperbole being generated by left-wing union bosses and their cohorts, it appears Obama & Co. may have a loser on their hands after a second appeals court struck down Obama’s “recess” appointments at the NLRB.

    Ted Cruz Takes Center Stage, Media Increases Attacks

    Ted Cruz Takes Center Stage, Media Increases Attacks

    With news Wednesday morning that Michelle Bachmann won’t be running for re-election in 2014, the left has turned their sights quickly to another target: Ted Cruz.  Not that they weren’t already focused on him.  The left has been foaming at the mouth over Cruz since he boldly stepped on the scene and refused to play by their crooked rules.  Bachmann’s exit, however, has introduced a | Read More »

    Go Big or Go Home

    In 1960, Barry Goldwater published The Conscience of a Conservative. In it, he noted Conservatism is not an economic theory, though it has economic implications. The shoe is precisely on the other foot: it is Socialism that subordinates all other considerations to man’s material well-being. It is Conservatism that puts material things in their proper place — that has a structured view of the human | Read More »

    Mitch McConnell, Electability, and Jim Bunning’s Revenge

    One of the favorite narratives propagated by the Republican establishment is that our candidates are “unelectable” loose cannons who will throw the election to the Democrats.  [As if they are suddenly concerned about Democrat policies.]  They try to invoke the name of Christine O’Donnell every time one of their members is challenged in a primary.  Well, it looks like we found the Christine O’Donnell of | Read More »

    Ben Bernanke and the First Rule of Holes

    I get that monetary policy is not really the sexiest or most interesting topic out there, especially in the midst of the Obama administration’s current scandalpalooza. But the signs are mounting that the Fed’s current course of action ought to start causing alarm for even the most casual consumer of news; and what’s worse, the Fed appears to have no exit strategy at all from | Read More »

    First The IRS, Now Democrats Use DSCC To Smear Tea Party IRS Rallies

    First The IRS, Now Democrats Use DSCC To Smear Tea Party IRS Rallies

    Guy Cecil is the Director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and is credited with saving the senate for the Dems. He may also want the credit of defending the IRS against the scandal surrounding the government entity’s targeting of tea party and Jewish groups. In a recent email to DSCC supporters, Cecil claims in an email fundraising appeal that tea partiers supported Nazis at | Read More »

    Persecution Myth?

    One of the traditional purposes for studying History has been to learn from it, to see how past events can shed light on the present.  This is possible assuming the history presented is true. Unfortunately, in our postmodern era of relativism, history has become a malleable tool to justify one’s philosophical and/or political inclinations—with all the wild anachronisms, projections, and conjectures that entails. Happily, there | Read More »

    Cowardly Colorado Governor Hickenlooper Commutes Death Sentence Until End of Term

    Cowardly Colorado Governor Hickenlooper Commutes Death Sentence Until End of Term

    In Colorado, the fate of convicted murderer Nathan Dunlap has been an issue of great debate. This past week, the governor of Colorado, John Hickenlooper, made what has to be one of the most cowardly decisions ever seen in politics by putting a man’s life and the expectations of his victims on hold just long enough to take the decision out of his hands. In | Read More »

    Thank you, @GovernorPerry

    Thank you, @GovernorPerry

    Governor Perry vetoed SB 346, the legislation designed to force political groups to reveal their donors to the Texas legislature. The measure, pushed by Republicans at the same time the IRS stories have been breaking, was concocted by a number of squishy Republicans who wanted to shut down conservative groups that had been forcing the squishes to move right. The squishes figured if they knew | Read More »

    Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory

    It seemed like the one thousandth call I’d taken from a Tea Party activist attempting our well-known strategy of putting our people in voting seats in our local county and state parties.   This activist and his Tea Party cohort had actually had far more success than he fully realized. In a well known county in Colorado, they had put several Tea Party members in | Read More »

    Congress should rein in the Export-Import Bank

    Another sign of the blatant cronyism involving the Export-Import Bank emerged this week.

    First Solar, a solar panel manufacturer, is by most standards a failing company. It suffered a net loss of $39 million in 2011, and an even greater loss of nearly $100 million in 2012. The company threw away $215 million at one point on solar panels that ended up failing at high temperatures. (A solar panel that can’t withstand heat?)

    But First Solar has political connections within the Obama Administration. And it also has a trump card: First Solar is a member of the “Business Alliance,” a secret clique of corporate donors to the Center for American Progress (CAP). CAP, in turn, lobbied Capitol Hill for First Solar, without disclosing the financial support it receives from the flailing solar energy company:
