MSM Reports IRS Targeting Conservative Americans As Scoop
I’m glad that the heritage media is finally reporting on what new media has covered for over a year now: that the IRS has been systematically targeting Americans based on their political ideology. The Internal Revenue Service inappropriately flagged conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status, a top IRS official said Friday.

Mark Sanford smacks down GOP establishment
In a special election to pick a new congressman to represent South Carolina’s first congressional district, Mark Sanford soundly defeated the sister of Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert, Elizabeth Colbert-Busch. In the process, he gave the GOP establishment a smack down that should bring joy to the hearts of Conservatives everywhere. When Sanford’s sordid affair as governor became the primary weapon of attack by Cobert-Busch in | Read More »
Hunt for the elusive Tea Party murderer continues
Liberal hopes were dashed with the revelation that the Boston Marathon bombers were a couple of Chechen Muslim immigrants. The Left was so sure they had finally bagged the elusive Tea Party murderer! The bombings occurred in Boston on Tax Day. Surely, at long last, the opportunity to smear libertarians, small-government conservatives, anti-tax crusaders, and the whole hellish tri-corner hat crowd was at hand! “Two plus two | Read More »
Revolutionary War Era Flag Deemed Offensive In New York
New Rochelle, New York, city council member Jared R. Rice(D) thinks that the Gadsden flag, also known as the “Don’t Tread On Me” flag, is offensive. So earlier this month Mr. Rice complained about the flag flying on a flag pole at the New Rochelle Armory to the city’s manager asking for it to be removed. The manager initially declined, however the Democrat majority of | Read More »
Government, Culture and Freedom
At the very dawn of our republic, John Adams uttered a prophetic phrase that rings through time to the present age. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Often we who love small government forget that culture, that is, “We the People” are the one’s who shape our government first, not | Read More »

The Watercooler ~ Don’t Go Wobbly Now, Conservatives
Watching Chris Wallace’s Fox News Sunday show yesterday morning was a dismal experience. If you can get through the hulu commercials, it is well worth your time to watch if you missed it. Especially, the second section (starting at 15:30 minutes in). Wallace juxtaposed Matt Kibbe — founder of Freedom Works and a strong Tea Party conservative — against Steve LaTourette — former congressman, founder | Read More »
Why Pat Brady Will Not Long Remain Illinois Republican Party Chair
The move to oust Pat Brady as head of the Illinois Republican Party has been cast as being all about gay marriage, but it isn’t so. Brady’s full-throated endorsement of same-sex marriage was just the tossed glove in a duel for the direction of the GOP in Illinois.

Holding Them Accountable – Richard Shelby Edition
In many states and many places people believe that elections are the only time participation is required in a Democracy. You show up, you vote, you wash your hands of it until they bother you again. Many citizens vote the way many loosely-affiliated Christians trek over to the local church once on Christmas and again on Easter. Check the block. Move on with life. Never mind that you are being robbed blind and governed dishonestly as soon as your back is turned.
Fortunately for us, regrettably for Republican Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama, not all Americans have degenerated into Amerikans. Quite a few people in Alabama found the time and volition to turn away from another riveting episode of SpongeBob. It seems they are engaged in behavior hostile to the continued cavorting of our disingenuous politicians. Fortunately, the GOP rank and file in Alabama did not take kindly to Senator Shelby’s having announced his support of Secretary of Defense nominee and former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel.

Is the next Rand Paul in North Carolina?
Karl Rove made some news over the weekend when he said the GOP needed more Rand Paul’s instead of more Christine O’Donnell’s. Sincere or not, Karl Rove is absolutely correct. Candidates that are for Constitutional government and package together conservative and libertarian values are the future of a successful Republican party. These candidates must be articulate in their message and principled to back up their rhetoric. | Read More »

Karl Rove Concedes To Tea Party, Finally Approves Of Rand Paul
Karl Rove would have you believe that he’s been a lifelong Rand Paul supporter. Rove recently opined that the party needs “fewer Christine O’Donnells and more Rand Pauls.” I distinctly remember Karl Rove’s dislike of Rand Paul during Kentucky’s senate primary. My emphasis: Republicans have also recruited good candidates for their open seats. New Hampshire Attorney General Kelly Ayotte is competitive, as are Ohio’s Rob Portman and | Read More »
