Private Emails From Texas Speaker Joe Straus’s Office Reveal War Against Conservatives
“These e-mails from the redistricting process shed new light on just how dismissive the Straus team was of Republican Party and conservative efforts to draw more fair districts – and should serve as a warning bell to the new House that it is time for Straus to go.”RedState has uncovered never-before-seen, profanity-laden e-mails between senior staff and legislative lieutenants of Texas’ liberal GOP House Speaker | Read More »

You Too Can Be Like Former Daily Kos Blogger Nate Silver
Nate Silver has all the liberals calmed down these days. He is the Xanax of the activist left, nervous about Tuesday. In an article HotAir linked to earlier today about rich, white San Francisco residents so upset by the thought of a Romney win they can’t use their home gyms, Mary Katharine Ham found this hilarious quote about a liberal who watched the first debate: | Read More »
The Future of Marriage Will be at Stake Next Week
The most important issue for conservatives on election night, aside for the individual elections, will be the question of gay marriage. Maryland, Minnesota, Maine, and Washington – all blue states – will be holding ballot referendums on gay marriage. In three of those states, we will be playing defense. If the ballot question passes, gay marriage will be recognized in those states. In Minnesota, we | Read More »
This Race is Over
We are less than a week from the election.At this point, I just want it over. I want my life back. I’m worn out. I am struggling to still care now that I have cast my absentee ballot.I think most Americans feel that way. The people of Ohio and Florida are begging for a return to TV ads for male enhancement drugs and self-lubricating catheters. | Read More »
On Polling Models, Skewed & Unskewed
There’s a very large gulf between my conclusion, explained on Friday, that Obama is toast on Election Day and confident projections like Nate Silver’s poll-reading model still giving the president (at last check) a 77.4% chance of victory. Let me explain why, and what that says about the difference between my approach and Nate’s. The Limits of Mathematical Models “A page of history is worth | Read More »
MACT – The End of Affordable Coal.
We have two different candidates who could win the US Presidential Election in six days. One claims that he favors “All of The Above” as an energy policy, but as you’ll see below, that comes with a caveat. The other candidate favors US Domestic Energy Independence as a method of economic revival. To determine which man is serious, look closely at how they react to the idea of reliance upon coal-fired energy.
Let’s say you saw the number one goal of the current US President is domestic energy independence or an all of the above energy policy. Would that include a major environmental regulation that threatened to take nearly 30KMW of electrical power generation offline in the immediate future? Would it involve specifically preventing mining and development of a major source of available domestic energy? If so, your candidate is already in office. The Hill describes the Obama Administration’s stance on coal energy below.

Do you want to repeal Obamacare?
Claire McCaskill. Bob Casey Jr. Sherrod Brown. Bill Nelson. Tammy Baldwin. Tim Kaine. These Senators and Senate candidates all support or even voted for Obamacare. Importantly, they all have Republican opponents who have a chance to win, thanks in part to the growing support for Mitt Romney in their swing states.
If we want to defeat Obamacare, it is critical that we elect Republicans to as many Senate seats as we can. The sad fact is that we can’t just get 50 and hope to win on a reconciliation tiebreak vote cast by Paul Ryan. You never know if the Democrats might find an anti-TEA party Republican who oppose the will of the voters and come to the other side. So we need to elect as many Republicans as we can.
That means no Republican left behind. George Allen, Tommy Thompson, Connie Mack, Josh Mandel, Tom Smith, and yes, Todd Akin are six key anti-Obamacare votes we need to elect, along with of course Mitt Romney.
We can only do this if we knock on doors, contact voters, and get out the vote for this important election. Please help.

If You Want to Repeal Obamacare, Support Akin & Mourdock
What has been overshadowed by pro-life remarks made by Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock is that the Republicans must take back the United States Senate to have a chance of repealing Obamacare.Even if Mitt Romney wins, it will be for naught if Harry Reid still controls the Senate. That is the reality. That is why Republicans must rally to two gentlemen who are committed pro-lifers, | Read More »
Important Ballot Questions at Stake
With all the focus on the presidential race and some of the congressional elections, there are a number of important state ballot questions that we must not overlook.

As Americans woke this morning, they were met with news of the destruction left by Hurricane Sandy across the East; that is if they have any power.

Texas’s Fight against Planned Parenthood
With the election and Hurricane Sandy sucking up most of the news oxygen, you may have missed the epic showdown in Texas going on between Rick Perry’s administration and Planned Parenthood. The Texas legislature passed a law last session (2011) prohibiting any state tax dollars from going to abortion providers or their affiliates. In short – Texans shouldn’t have to fund the killing of babies | Read More »
