RedState Gathering: Senator Tim Scott (R, SC).
This, again, isn’t the official footage by any means; but I did film some interviews of my own, and I’ll be putting them up this week. This, of course, is Tim Scott: old friend of the site, good guy in general. Moe Lane (crosspost)
Union-Free America, Beware: Obama’s NLRB Is Locked, Loaded & Ready To Do Union Bosses’ Bidding
It is now official. Barack Obama’s union-dominated National Labor Relations Board is now up to its full anti-employer potential with AFL-CIO attorney Nancy Schiffer and union lawyer Kent Hirozawa being sworn in, along with union attorney Mark Pearce resuming his role as chairman. This is the first time the NLRB has had five sitting members since 2003, when Democrats began crippling George Bush’s NLRB in | Read More »
Flashback: Missouri Dems Defend “Minstrel” Act
When a photo emerged in 1999 of the now-late governor Mel Carnahan in blackface doing what was reported as a “minstrel show,” state Democrats defended the act, in a story sent by multiple listeners. Missouri Republicans, upset over charges of racism against Sen. John D. Ashcroft (R-Mo.), are circulating a 1960 photograph of Gov. Mel Carnahan (D) in blackface makeup performing a Kiwanis minstrel show. | Read More »

#Waywire: Cory Booker’s Ticket To Board The Torricelli Express
It was a little over 1 year ago, and Cory Booker, Mayor of Newark, NJ launched an IPO to fund his own brainchild; a social media aggregator entitled #Waywire. He felt that he could offer something brand new to the social media industry and speak for younger Americans of The Millennial Generation. His project started with a bang, but appears to be about to end with a thud. Mayor Booker has discovered what many before him have learned already. You can’t lie down with the dogs and not get infested with fleas.
Booker described his mission as a modernization. “Traditional media is controlled by a handful of companies with one destination and a specific point of view,” Booker said, “while [Millennials] have come of age expecting social media, user-generated voices, the open web and technology led media.” Techli.com wrote a glowing description of the initial success of his IPO.

How about in Washington, D.C.?Organizing for Action marched out of Mordor today to demand action on climate change. They held a rally in Washington, D.C.

Bono, born-again capitalist evangelist
Rock star Bono of the group U2 has been saying some very interesting things lately. Let’s concede up front that it’s all too easy to celebrate someone for coming around to your way of thinking. Merit badges for genius are easily awarded to people who agree with you. I won’t belittle this particular celebrity by lavishing him with insincere praise for saying something that agrees | Read More »
Mark Levin’s Liberty Amendments
Over the past year, I have dedicated my time to helping elect conservatives in an effort to ensure that at least one political party represents our constitutional form of government. But even as I sweat and toil for this endeavor, I have realized that elections are not enough to restore our liberty. In fact, it is scandalous that our liberties should be subject to the | Read More »
The RNC: In Communities and There to Stay
Back in January, I shared with RedState my vision for the RNC’s field operation and some of the lessons we had learned from the 2012 election: As a party, we must recognize that we live in an era of permanent politics. We must stop living nominee-to-nominee, campaign to campaign. As we saw this election, our opponent benefited from a multi-year head-start. Now is the time | Read More »
Organizing for Action Takes on Climate Change Because Jobs Are Not Important
Here in Middle Georgia we have had very few days this year above ninety degrees, which is unusual. It took my zinnias a bit longer than normal to bloom. We have, however, had more than double our normal rainfall. I have saved a good bit of money on not running the sprinkler system. The rosemary, basil, and thyme are doing quite well.

There Is Only Gender
You might look at my Caucasian features and wonder why I am claiming to be an African American. I may not be a natural descendent of African American lineage, but I feel black and have thus decided to identify as African American. Since I identify as African American, I am African American, and you must accept me as such. Because I claim my identity as | Read More »

Wimps, Frauds, and Charlatans
In case you missed it, because for some reason the national press has ignored what should be a salacious story, Tennessee Senator Lamar! Alexander’s political campaign coordinated the “timing and even funding for” an exhibit about Lamar! Alexander. Alexander is gearing up for a re-election campaign in 2014 where he expects to get a primary challenge. He used your tax dollars to secure an earmark | Read More »
