When the front door is locked, try the back, or maybe a window…
Today, our illustrious Senate had a vote on a piece of legislation (S.J. Res. 26) that would stop the EPA in their tracks, and deny them the ability to enforce the Presidents Global-Warming agenda. The vote was 53-47 against the bill! That’s right, 53 Democrats voted in-favor of “if we can’t pass it in Congress, we’ll just let the EPA make the law!” President Obama chimed | Read More »
So Long Dingy Harry!
Last night was a wonderful victory for Sharron Angle who trounced the competition in Nevada’s primary. Things are looking a little brighter today now that we have one candidate to go head-to-head against Harry Reid. Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle celebrated a spectacular victory Tuesday, one fueled by conservative groups hellbent on defeating Democratic incumbent Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader. Sharron is making no | Read More »
Will “Events” Drive the 2010 Election Season?- B Chumm
Note: Last night I sent Bernard Chumm a copy of my latest situation analysis, and how we plan to spend our summer, in which, in the closing paragraphs, I included a silly cavalier comment “…short of England breaking off diplomatic relations with the US for our mistreatment of British nationals (BP)…” He called me after midnight and said “That could be it.” “What”, I asked? | Read More »
NY-19: Nan Hayworth and the GOP Comeback
You see, we lost big in ’06, but we didn’t lose by much. There are opportunities literally everywhere for the Republican party to take back and in many cases capture for the first time in a long time, Congressional seats that swung just a little bit Democrat in the last few cycles. The 19th Congressional district of New York is a prime example of this: | Read More »
Meet Bill Randall (R-CAND, NC-13)
Well, I was going to do a full-scale bio and plea for support for Bill Randall, conservative Republican for Congress in North Carolina’s 13th District, but blogger RandysRight beat me to it. So, before I copy and paste his spot-on post from ConservativeNC, let me say that Randall is running in the Republican run-off election to be held June 22. Turnout is normally VERY low | Read More »
US House Races – Indiana
In 2006, Indiana was the harbinger of doom for Republicans. With their polls closing early and three vulnerable Rep-held seats, you knew the election would be bad when all three of them fell. With any luck, 2010 can be the reverse. All three of those seats are once again competitive, and perhaps all three can switch back to Red. It’ll still be tough to do, | Read More »
GOP: A Permanent Minority Party for 21st Century?
One shoe has fallen with passage of ObamaCare. Is amnesty for illegal immigrants the next shoe? If Democrats prevail, the Tea Party activists could walk the lawns and boulevards of Capitol Hill, picking up their litter, smiling at the police officers, and crossing with the traffic light until the orthopedic inserts fall out of their shoes and they won’t be able to change one bloody thing.

Attention North Carolina Conservatives!
Attention North Carolina Conservatives! There only a few days left until the May 4 primary, and conservative judges need your help! Judges are elected here in North Carolina, and this year, conservative judges are facing a major battle. According to the August 10, 2009, issue of National Review, money from liberal special interests is flowing into the Tar Heel State to defeat conservative appellate judges like Judge | Read More »
The Anti-Soros SoS Project Candidate-Damon Dunn
By now you’ve no doubt heard of the George Soros funded Secretary of State Project, established as a backlash against a leftist-perceived “engineered loss” of the Algore candidacy in 2000. The left as part of its blame assignment included Katherine Harris, then the Florida Secretary of State who after endless delays (see Algore, Cheat) declared G. W. Bush the winner. The light bulbs came on; | Read More »
Pep rallys end with 4/15, time to get busy tea partys
As we head to the next big stage in the health care vote, its tempting to just become obsessed with the subject. Like all politics, the yes vote in the house, is merely another step, albeit a big one. It is not the bitter end of the efforts by the socialists to nationalise the health care system. This entire fight and drama will be draining | Read More »
GA-12: Trouble Brewing for Barrow
I divide my time between Georgia’s 13th district and its 12th district, depending on whether I’m at home or in college. Unfortunately, I’m represented by Democrats, David Scott and John Barrow, respectively, in both districts. Since I’m registered to vote in the 12th district, I’ve been doing what I can to help the Republicans oust Barrow. Courtesy of NationalAtlas.gov.
Let’s Take the Fight to the Local and State Level
While the battle to take back the House and the Senate is critical to stop Obama’s further expansion of Federal control over our life, let’s not overlook the importance of our local and state elections. This is a Census year! That means the legislatures that we elect this year will draw new Congressional boundaries for 2012. We need conservative state legislators and governors to ensure | Read More »
When Does It End?
The health care debate has been going on in America for over a year. Both houses of Congress (led by the most liberal of Democrats) have been haggling and twisting arms and shutting out the opposition for 12 long, arduous, mostly depressing months. In this endless process, they have spent virtually all of their political capital on one single issue. Unfortunately, that issue involves the | Read More »
A New Assault Weapons Ban – It’s what’s for dinner, along with The Constitution.
Article from 25 February…….. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/story?id=6960824 The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today. “As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” | Read More »
The Two Faces of Rob Andrews on Healthcare
To all my friends at Restate: I know that Redstate has done wonders for solid conservative candidates across the country. Please seriously consider financially supporting Dale Glading for congress in New Jersey’s 1st Congressional District. Rob Andrews is actually vulnerable this time around, but without the funding, Glading will have a hard time making his case. Thanks for all you do! Here’s my column from | Read More »
