UPDATED: Colorado Democrats Take Extreme Position on Abortion Rights
*Update at bottom* Colorado Democrats have taken the assault on the unborn to new depths. The anti-life legislation currently making its way through the Colorado Senate is so extreme that I am not sure that even Wendy Davis would support it. Basically, the Democratic party in Colorado has decided to advance a virulently anti-life position that would enshrine into Colorado law the right to murder a child | Read More »

Ebony News Editor Jamilah Lemieux Has No Time For ‘White’ People Like Raffi Williams
This morning a news editor from Ebony decided to show her ignorance and racism to the world. In a series of tweets Jamilah Lemieux, the News and Lifestyle Editor for Ebony Magazine, called Dr. Ben Carson insane for his beliefs on race, politics, and “anything else other than his medical work.” Her objections appear to be that Carson is conservative to some extent and therefore any ideas he may have on race are forever tainted. Indeed, even his own blackness should be questioned.

OPEN THREAD: Mitch McConnell – HARDCORE!!
This morning Team Mitch released a campaign video. The video didn’t address the many betrayals committed by the Senate Minority Leader, as detailed by Erick this morning. Instead it attempted to paint McConnell as working hard for America. But what it really did is give off the feeling that I shouldn’t trust this guy to run the carpool for school.
Our own Ben Howe was taken a bit aback by the horribleness of the Team Mitch ad and decided to improve upon it greatly.

The U.S., Russia, and Ukraine: Why it matters and why we won’t do a thing.
Russia is on the move, and there are no signs that Putin intends to slow down. The happenings in Crimea have all the signs of a full scale invasion. The long and storied history of the region shows that it has been tossed back in forth between various regimes seeking to establish or hold on to their power. Whether it’s Ottomans and Tsars fighting over religion, or Nazis and Communists fighting over who can kill people and economies better, people have been fighting over Ukraine and the Crimean peninsula for a very long time.

The past two days the staff at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) have pushed news articles meant to tear down Milton Wolf, a doctor from Kansas and a candidate in the GOP Senate primary. You may be asking yourself why an official GOP organization is doing this, but the reason is very simple. The quickest way to find yourself the target of the NRSC’s | Read More »
I am not outraged about CPAC and GOProud
I am a social conservative, I am firmly against SSM, I have spoken of my disagreements with GOProud, its founders, and its focus before, and those disagreements still exist today. Yet, as I stated in my title, I am not outraged by GOProud’s CPAC attendance. In fact, I will go so far as to say that I wouldn’t even mind if they were allowed to be sponsors.
Now, before I start getting adoring tweets from Jimmy LaSalvia and Chris Baron, along with praise from the media for my moderate view on the annual airing of grievances surrounding GOProud’s inclusion at CPAC, let me explain.

Ken Buck Has Been Fighting the #WarOnWomen For Longer Than You Know. #KenCares

Ken Buck Wants Colorado to Choose a New Direction
Since the 2008 election, in which Mark Udall rode Barack Obama’s coattails all the way to the Senate, Colorado has had the unfortunate experience of having Udall represent the will of Washington back to those of us in Colorado, rather than represent the will of Coloradan’s to those in Washington. Mark Udall voted in agreement with President Obama 99% of the time in 2013. Just | Read More »

Open Thread: Coke Is It
After a SuperBowl that was any thing but, I can understand how many would be in a bad mood. That said, I really don’t think it fair to take out those frustrations on one of the quintessential American brands. If you don’t know what I am talking about, I envy you. During the SuperBowl Coca-Cola aired a commercial, which you can view below, that had | Read More »
Mark Udall, Among Other Incumbent Democrats, Wants To Distance Himself From Obama. And I Can’t Blame Him
As I am sure most of you know by now, Mark Udall jumped through hoops, ducked, dived, and down right evaded questions from CNN’s Dana Bash on whether he would want President Obama to campaign with him in Colorado for the 2014 midterm elections. I must admit, Udall was masterful in his ability to not answer a simple yes or no question. Admittedly this is | Read More »
