Steve Forbes Endorses McCollum, Blasts Scott

    (H/T Newsmax.com) In the Tampa Tribune, Steve Forbes, two time Republican Presidential Candidate and self-described “Capitalist Tool“, endorsed Bill McCollum:

    Today in Washington – June 23, 2010

    Tea Party Activists are likely to have another ally in Washington this Fall — Mike Lee, the Republican nominee for Senate from Utah.  Lee will join Republican nominee from Kentucky Rand Paul and the Republican nominee from Nevada Sharron Angle as non-establishment Tea Party activist candidates for Senate.  If these candidates are sworn into office, expect the Republican establishment to sound more conservative next year.

    Rand Paul – Back to 1964

                                                  Private Business and Accommodations Candidates for the Senate are expected to offer their views on the issues of the day.  “Lunch counters” is not one of them.  In a survey of businesses that offer public accommodations, it would be hard to find any who which to turn away paying customers.  Affirmative Action is a current issue.  Recall Joseph Lieberman ran simultaneously for the Senate | Read More »

    Rand Paul Has Republican Jews Nervous?

    It was only a matter of time until Rand Paul’s totally undramatic and unsurprising CRA-’64 “comments” coalesced with memories of Ron Paul’s non-support for Israel-no-matter-what-when-or-why, and produced this. When the anti-black racism smear doesn’t quite sink in, there’s always one, more powerful card to play. Funny how these two “constituencies”–blacks and Jews–are the two that Republicans so tenuously caress and go out of their way | Read More »

    Rand Paul to Face 3rd Party Challenge From… Libertarians???

    According to Kentucky Libertarian Party Vice-Chairman Joshua Koch, Rand Paul is not quite Libertarian enough, and he is considering running a Libertarian Party candidate in November. The deadline for filing is August 10. In an interview, Koch claimed that Paul was not a Libertarian: “He had gone from being an outsider candidate to a tea party candidate to an establishment candidate in the past nine | Read More »

    Meghan McCain and the Irony of the Pot Calling Kettle Black

    I suppose the phrase “the pot calling the kettle black” is somehow racist now, but since I’m called one incessantly just for being a Conservative anyway, I’ll say it regardless. Meghan McCain epitomizes that phrase and she proves it yet again with her latest inane rambling of her alleged thoughts on Rand Paul. I admit that when she tweeted that a new article at The | Read More »

    Rand Paul’s Missed Opportunity

    I have to admit, as an African-American who has spent a considerable amount of time and energy over the past months trying to convince friends and associates that the Tea Party is not actually a bunch of closet racists who just can’t accept that American has a black President, when I first heard that Rand Paul couldn’t bring himself to endorse the sections of the | Read More »

    Reaction to Dr. Paul’s Comments Apart of Much Larger Narrative

    Let’s put the comments and the reaction to those comments by Rand Paul aside for a moment. The elite media and the elite political and social class inside the Beltway reacted in the way someone who has become vastly disconnected with not only American history but America’s founders. Make no mistake, the founders were all libertarian with the exception of Alexander Hamilton who admired the | Read More »

    Establishment Libs Shying from Rand Paul

    That’s Libertarians, not liberals. As I wrote about here, Brink Lindsey, a Cato “scholar”, borderline betrays the libertarian brand in an NRA-type move, going for what’s popular (remember V-Tech?) rather than upholding the unabashed principles he’s (supposedly) there for in the first place. Whether you agree with Paul’s premise or not, we can agree that giving the federal government one exception theoretically (especially in the | Read More »

    Defending Rand Paul

    I’m getting sick and tired of this attempt by the media led by MSNBC and that anatomically unidentifiable failed Air America host Rachel Maddow to smear and paint Rand Paul as a racist and someone who not only opposes the Civil Rights Act of 1964 but someone who wants to appeal it. First of all, Rand Paul never once said he favored a repeal of | Read More »

    Rand Paul was Right on Civil Rights Act

    Rand Paul has been the subject of liberal assaults recently for his comments on Title II of the ‘1964 Civil Rights Act.’  The liberal TV pundits accuse Rand Paul of ‘being ignorant of the law and history,’ but it is actually they who are ignorant-or even worse, purposely misleading.  The real issue has nothing to do with race, but with unlimited power granted to the | Read More »

    Rand Paul Part III

    The other day I voiced my concerns about how the Democrats were going to distort Rand Paul’s views and try to use his statements to demonize the Tea Party and all Republicans.  Most of you have already seen the evidence of that happening.  They’ve rolled out their Civil rights icons like Jim Clyburn and a long procession of successive condemnations from Democrat leaders.  Back in | Read More »

    Rand Paul and Israel

    Any conservative friend of Israel knows that Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) may not have personal antipathy toward Israel, but he does hold isolationist foreign policy views, and as a result, is one of the few Republicans to oppose aid to Israel or any other pro-Israel resolutions.  Given his natural closeness to his son, and the significant support his political organization lent and continues to lend | Read More »
