On Conservatives And Culture

    Well over a year ago while filling in for Glenn Beck I said this on conservatives and culture: Here’s a lesson for conservative artists, too: as Dez Dickerson told me (he played guitar for Prince), be judged on the merit of your work, not because of your ideology. Make your art beyond reproach. Going out and buying crappy art from someone just because they are | Read More »

    America’s Opportunity: A Discussion with the Heritage Foundation

    I took part in a Google Hangout today to discuss the Heritage Foundation’s report “America’s Opportunity For All” which lays out their vision for the future. Part of that vision involves how to message small government principles to groups of people that have thus far rejected conservative policies. I was joined by Rich Tucker, Senior Writer for The Heritage Foundation; Emily Zanotti, Principal at Iconoclast | Read More »

    There Are Two Paths

    As we approach the finish line of what I think is one of the most fascinating periods in this great American experiment, a Presidential election, it is clear to me and the team at the Madison Action Fund that we are literally a country at the crossroads of history. We have the choice between two paths. And while some will complain that the distinction between | Read More »

    Video: “Every Generation.”

    One of the nice things about attending Freedomwork’s Blogcon last weekend was that I had the opportunity to get an early look at the Veteran’s Day video that RedState’s Ben Howe did for the event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPfQTdTWRZw Freedomworks was lucky to have his creative output on tap like this – and so are we.

    Grow the RedState radio empire. Please support Ben Howe today.

    Ben Howe. You may know him from such RedState posts as Attacking Attack Watch’s Attack on my Attack on the Auto Bailouts and Happy Birthday President Obama! What you may not know though is that he’s in the running to have his own radio show on WBT in Charlotte. Please consider going to the WBT website today and clicking the “Like” button (this isn’t a | Read More »

    Is It Marketing, Or Is It Naivete? Herman Cain’s 999 Plan, And Its Detractors

    There are two front page stories directly attacking Herman Cain’s 999 Plan. They are both serious and fair attacks, by serious and fair people. I’ve been around a long time on Redstate and both streiff and Ben Howe carry a great deal of weight with me. But I can’t help shake the feeling that they’re… willfully ignoring certain things to denigrate the 999 Plan. While | Read More »

    ‘Failure of Leadership.’

    Fresh from the creative mind of our own Ben Howe comes this latest reminder of precisely how badly we messed up the 2008 Presidential election by picking one of the most inexperienced candidates in history (both in terms of resume, and temperament) to run the country. The entertaining part?  Ben didn’t need much more besides a bunch of newspapers clippings and the President’s own words.  | Read More »

    Atlas is Shrugging…

    Whether you agree with Ayn Rand’s philosophy or not, her novel Atlas Shrugged has touched the lives of millions and influenced many of today’s center-right thinkers. As noted in the Wall Street Journal this morning: Book sales for “Atlas” have always been brisk—and all the more so in the past few years, as actual events have mirrored Rand’s nightmare vision of economic collapse amid massive | Read More »

    Dan Benishek: Of The People, By The People

    We are getting down to the wire here and a candidate who can win needs our help. Dan Benishek is running in MI-1 for the seat that Bart Stupak is vacating. Y’all remember Bart Stupak, right? The man who proved that the myth of the Pro-Life Democrat is just that; a myth. He disgustingly sold out the unborn, after promising not to, and voted for | Read More »
