Colorado’s 4th CD Must Do Better Than State Sen. Scott Renfroe
Colorado’s 4th Congressional District covers most of the eastern half of Colorado. It is a +12 Republican district. And frankly, it deserves better than State Senator Scott Renfroe. While there are a variety of issues with Renfroe, the largest issue for those in the rural farm land that makes up the district is the connections to New Frontier Bank [NFB] and its failure in 2009.

Thad Cochran Hosts Fundraisers for Liberal Democrats
The Washington Examiner reports that Thad Cochran hosts fundraisers for Democrats in his home. Well . . . they report it slightly differently. The Washington Examiner reports that Cochran’s executive assistant, Kay Webber, hosts fundraisers in her home and Thad Cochran rents a basement apartment there. But there is no basement apartment in Kay Webber’s home available for rent. That’s according to the District of | Read More »
Bipartisan Corruption in the Texas Legislature the Media Mostly Ignores
Wallace Hall is a University of Texas Regent appointed by Gov. Rick Perry. He is presently facing impeachment and possible jail time for uncovering what looks and smells like systematic corruption in the enrollment process of the University of Texas system due to interference from members of the Texas legislature. The Speaker of the Texas House is implicated. The Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee | Read More »
The Caged Bird Sang to Me
It is a little frustrating these days to decide whether or not someone is worth liking because of their politics. It is even more frustrating to see people who think nice things cannot be said of people on the other side of the aisle. I am pretty sure that Maya Angelou and I would disagree on much politically, but I’d stand still on a hot | Read More »
Obama’s Speech at West Point: Lies, Deceptions and Delusions
Today Barack Obama gave the commencement address at the United States Military Academy at West Point. While the address was billed as his “foreign policy vision” it was vintage Obama: banal, deceptive, self-serving, and partisan to the very core. Sort of a metaphor for them man himself. He led off by proclaiming success. He trotted out Osama bin Laden’s putrescent corpse for effect. He claims, | Read More »
Veterans Affairs Police brutality alleged in wrongful death case.
This is one of those stories that you actually hope to God never happened, because of course you’d prefer that somebody lied to you about a veteran getting beaten by cops than for it to actually have happened. But it’s being reported in local news, too: the short version is that the widow and family of Jonathan Montano claim that Veterans Affairs Police essentially beat | Read More »
The Online Off and the Offline On
Were one to follow Texas campaigns for the last few weeks, it would seem Ken Paxton, RedState’s choice for Texas Attorney General, was destined to lose. The stars had aligned against him because he made a small mistake his opponent had seized on. The Texas establishment had rallied to his opponent. Paxton was doomed. Twitter said so. Facebook said so. Email said so. Congratulations to | Read More »
Don’t Mess With Texas
The Tea Party and grassroots conservatives have come back to life from the dead more times than any of us can count. The media keeps missing the point; whenever our candidates can raise money and get their message out to the voters before they are defined by the smear machine, they will win every time. And especially in Texas, where we have done a better | Read More »
Why Haven’t I Committed Mass Murder?
Why haven’t I committed mass murder? It is an interesting question considering my background. You see, I have a few things in common with many of the recent mass murderers. I came from a broken home. I didn’t really have many dates, if any, in high school. When I began the 9th grade I was only 4’6″ tall. I was only 5’4″ when I graduated. | Read More »
John McCain proposes reform of the VA
The ongoing scandal that is our nation’s best answer to veterans health care continues to gather steam. In addition to firing a lot of people, we should also take the time to look at what exactly veterans should expect from a health care system. John McCain offers a good proposal: Memorial Day is a sacred observance in America’s democracy—the day that the nation honors and | Read More »

Establishment Campaign Strategy: Shameless, Cowardly, and Perfidious
I’m hearing some breaking news down in Virginia’s Seventh District. Eric Cantor is planning to resign his seat and take over the helm at the hawkish immigration group, Numbers USA. Take a look at this door hanger from the Cantor campaign, which was distributed to Republican voters in his district, and that is the only conclusion one can draw from its content. Looking at this | Read More »
