Did Lois Lerner Want Conservatives to go to Jail?
New emails show that at the same time the IRS was targeting hundreds of conservative groups, at a time Lois Lerner was fully aware of it, and was about to plant a question to supposedly apologize for it, Lerner was colluding with her former boss from the FEC, who was essentially now a liberal lobbyist, and the Obama DOJ to “piece together” criminal charges against conservative groups, not because of any hard evidence, but because liberal Senators and left-leaning groups “think” they should.

The Very, Very, Drab, Gray World of Leftists
Imagine our country where everyone acts alike, thinks alike, eats alike, lives alike, because of equality for all. Equal outcome for everyone regardless of intellect, accomplishments or drive to succeed. We are all equal in all manners and therefore all should get equal treatment. That’s what the Left believes and it’s un-American at the core. They want a pre-destined outcome for every individual by silencing dissent. Either | Read More »
Eric Cantor enshrined in the G.O.P. Hall of Shame
In 2010, the TEA Party and other Conservative groups swept 63 Republicans in to office, giving them the majority they had lost in 2006. As the pundits would later declare, this amazing result came about as a response by millions of Americans who felt that Washington–particularly Democrats—had lost touch with the electorate. In addition, they held a conviction that government was too big. It spent | Read More »
Harry Reid thinks I’m too stupid to understand the internet
I’ve been pretty proud of how The Strident Conservative has grown since I founded it in 2009. Thanks to the support from a myriad of readers, it has become one of the internet’s best sources for Conservative opinion and satire. At least, that’s what I used to think. In a statement released today regarding the administration’s decision to delay the March 31 Obamacare enrollment deadline, | Read More »

G.O.P. establishment ready to crush the opposition
“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” McConnell said. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.” With these words, Mitch McConnell (R-ino KY) declared his war strategy for taking down the Democrats in 2014 during his surprise appearance at the CPAC (Conservative Political Action Committee) event this past weekend. Actually, that’s not accurate. In reality, | Read More »

‘Crush Them Everywhere’
“Crush them everywhere.” That is not Mitch McConnell’s expectation on beating the Democrats. That is not Mitch McConnell’s hope against Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats. This — “crush them everywhere” — is what Mitch McConnell tells the New York Times he intends to do to conservatives. “They cannot crush this conservative uprising; they can only delay it.” Across the country, as conservatives realize that | Read More »
Lessons of the Week from Texas to CPAC
Without any galvanized or united tea party/conservative opposition pitted against a 12 year, popular incumbent, 40% of Texas Republicans still voted against John Cornyn. Put it to you this way — RedState did not oppose John Cornyn and one of our own front page contributors did work for him on this campaign. And without anyone really campaigning against him, 40% of Texas Republicans still wanted | Read More »
3 Important Questions Lois Lerner Raised about the IRS Targeting Without Saying a Word
Lois Lerner – the former senior IRS official at the heart of the IRS targeting scandal – once again pleaded the Fifth Amendment this week refusing to answer any questions about the scheme aimed at silencing conservatives.
Yet, her silence this week is very telling. It raises 3 important questions, without her even saying a word.
Was It All About Spite Against Conservatives?

The Myth of “Polarization-” Part 1: The House
As we enter this midterm election cycle in earnest, we are hearing a lot of noise about the “do nothing” Congress, about Republican “obstruction,” about the “Party of No,” etc. A simple Google search of that last phrase returns over 2 BILLION hits. As this article and the next article will try to illustrate, this phenomena is nothing new in politics. Also, I will try | Read More »
How To Stop The Coming Single-Payer Monster
I recently watched a scary message from a RedState email about the single-payer path Obamacare is suppose to be heading. Many of you probably received and watched the message too. His name is Jud Anglin and he runs a healthcare business in Maryland. We already all know where Obamacare is suppose to be heading. He predicts that in 18-24 months (I think he did the | Read More »
3 Generals, Sec. of Defense, Joint Chief of Staff – “Nail Obama & Clinton”
Three questions that haunt Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty and Sean Smith’s families and all Americans; (1) Did they know?, (2) When did they know?, and (3)Why didn’t they send help? So let’s back track to September 11, 2012 – we have 3 Generals, Sec. of Defense & a Joint Chief of Staff who just filled in the missing pieces about the Benghazi murders. | Read More »
The GOP establishment just doesn’t care anymore
Several key moves by the “leadership” of the Republican Party over the past few weeks have made one thing abundantly clear; even to the casual observer, they just don’t care anymore about the issues important to the Conservative base of the party. They are just going to bide their time, raise their money, and try to buy their re-elections in November. It began with the | Read More »
Accomplices to Murder – Obama & Clinton???
The Benghazi murders have more twists and turns than a roller coaster – the one thing and most important thing about the massacres of our four brave Americans is this: the two key people in our Government, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were in charge. There’s no negotiating on that fact – it was their duty and responsibility to do whatever it takes to protect | Read More »
Obama & Congress Your Bags are Packed
It’s time to write a letter to “Congress” and discuss their reckless spending and their reluctance to be good stewards of our money. Obama and Congress have lost our trust – we actually are beginning to realize that they in fact are our enemy. OBAMA & CONGRESS YOUR BAGS ARE PACKED! “We need to relay the message in plain English don’t spend more than you | Read More »
A Culture of Self-Defeat
As a note before I get into this subject, I realize just how quickly some readers will think I am comparing the plight of aspects of White America with aspects of Black America. The two have much different stories, but there is an identity among certain groups in both that are extremely similar. This post touches on that identity and the problems it causes personal | Read More »
