Thad Cochran is Wasting GOP Resources by not Conceding

    Thad Cochran is Wasting GOP Resources by not Conceding

    Conventional wisdom is descending on the McDaniel vs. Cochran run-off that was kicked off last night when neither candidate pulled in over 50% of the votes in the Mississippi primary. The wisdom goes something like this: Cochran is a safe bet with high name ID in Mississippi and therefore will be able to spend his energy and resources fighting back against a lesser known Democrat | Read More »

    NC GOP Primary Results Open Thread

    Tonight is the North Carolina primary election. The big race to watch is the GOP Senate primary between Greg Brannon, Thom Tillis, and Mark Harris. Early results show Tillis with a large lead while Brannon and Harris split the rest of the pie. Republicans and conservatives have been divided in this race, whether it was about liberal records or rookie mistakes and missteps. After tonight, | Read More »

    Picking and Choosing

    On Saturday, I volunteered to help out at a Day of Action event in the city where I live. The Louisiana GOP had two forces in play – door-to-door activists and people working the phones. One of the first things I noticed is that phone records are apparently really out of date because of the calls I made, a ton were disconnected. That is neither | Read More »

    Boehner Primary challenger interview.

    With just 26 days until the primary I thought I post a link to an interview I did with Roger Hansen last week. This was given to me in raw cut so I could post. Eric Gurr, Boehner primary challenger interview.  

    The collapse of normalcy

    You can’t spend much time on the web these days without running across an article warning about the coming collapse. Some suggest we are facing another banking crisis others a debt crisis or currency collapse. Many on the left will respond that these people are simply peddling fear to try to get you to buy gold or a survival pack. While that may be true | Read More »

    The 2016 GOP Bench

    Promoted from the diaries – Aaron Gardner This is based on conversations with a few professionals in the conservative circles and my own observations.

    Fear and Loathing in D.C.

    I’m not sure if you guys noticed it in recent weeks. I mean, if you read along here on the site, you’ve picked up on it, but I don’t think it’s fully dawned on a lot of folks yet. About half the time, we get the feeling of general ignorance or indifference from Washington D.C. toward the people that elect them. But now it’s really | Read More »

    It’s Accountability Season

    It’s accountability season; do you know how your elected officials have been voting? Every two years it rolls around – as sure as death and taxes – primary season. So how is your State Representative, State Senator, Congressman or U.S. Senator doing? Now is the time to do your homework, check the record, and decide if they have earned your vote. Homework is the key | Read More »

    WY-SEN: Enzi delinquent on taxes, too

    I wrote this last week. Liz Cheney made one of the most common rookie mistakes recently. She announced she was running for the U.S. Senate against popular three-term Senator Mike Enzi and didn’t make sure she had all of her Wyoming taxes paid up first. Well guess what, U.S. Senator Mike Enzi is no paragon of virtue on this issue either. Although, Enzi’s three delinquencies | Read More »

    Liz Cheney’s uphill, but not yet impossible, battle

    Now that the dust is starting to settle from Liz Cheney announcing her candidacy for the Republican nomination for United States Senator in Wyoming, we are starting to understand the slope of Liz’s uphill battle. It is actually quite steep. Clearly, Liz Cheney is the underdog in her challenge to defeat three-term U.S. Senator Mike Enzi in the Wyoming primary. A poll that I blogged | Read More »

    Enzi crushing Cheney in new poll

    I am a Wyoming resident. I have been for over 40 years. Lived almost my whole life here. When the news came out that Liz Cheney was thinking about running for the U.S. Senate in Wyoming, my first thought was, “Why Wyoming? She’s from Virginia. Grew up there. Went to college in Colorado. Law School in Chicago. Worked her entire adult life in Washington, D.C. | Read More »

    Next week: Poll on Pat Roberts’ 2014 re-election in Kansas

    US Senator Pat Roberts, who chose to join Sam Brownback in cheerleading in 2009 for Kathleen Sebelius to run our national healthcare, is currently running for re-election. I think Roberts is very vulnerable to a primary challenger, especially if it’s one of two men:  First District Congressman Tim Huelskamp or Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Recently, the PAC I chair performed a poll the Kansas City | Read More »

    2014 Primaries

    Currently as a student in a community college because I lack the background education employers require for the fields I have the most experience in. Going back to school after 40 can be intimidating and invigorating. My fear over obamanation and Ameritopia is very motivating. For me it will not be manipulative. There are many topics to ponder over before the next set of primaries. | Read More »
