    General Motors Continues to Invest American Tax Dollars Overseas

    The World Cup ended in a tight contest between Argentina and Germany on Sunday, but even after what was by most accounts an exciting tournament, the American enthusiasm gap between football and futbol remains considerable. It was noteworthy, then, when the iconic American car brand Chevrolet inked a $70 million sponsorship deal with English Premier League giant Manchester United. The Chevy logo will now grace the front of | Read More »

    VIDEO: Obama is a Foreign Policy Failure

    VIDEO: Obama is a Foreign Policy Failure

    It’s hard to look around at the world today and feel as though we’re safer than we were before President Obama took office. Yet, this is exactly what he promised would happen when he ran for the office in 2008. The Daily Signal released a new video today highlighting the condition of the world in stark contrast to the lofty promises made by then candidate | Read More »

    President “Uh”

    Yesterday, President Obama gave a press conference promising that no more boots would be put on the ground in Iraq leaving us to assume the 300 special ops folks he’s sending are wearing sneakers. The press asked some very important questions that I think must be addressed regarding the tense and deadly situation in Iraq. And while there’s nothing funny about the atrocities being committed | Read More »

    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 »

    With Abortions & Crime At All Time High, Detroit Approaches Third World Status.

    With Abortions & Crime At All Time High, Detroit Approaches Third World Status.

    Detroit is often heralded by small government proponents as a perfect example of an over-involved government pushing themselves into the culture of a successful city and creating a state of dependence which eventually collapses in on itself. In other words, a great example of why big government fails. But this is really only a partial explanation of the issue. The real issue in America and the | Read More »

    Auto Bailouts and the Lessons of Poletown

    I had the opportunity to screen a portion of my film, Bankrupt: How Cronyism & Corruption Brought Down Detroit, for a group of about 60 people earlier this week and the experience was thrilling. Not just because it was live audience but because it was a live audience that brought some genuine opposition to the premise of the film, which never fails to be interesting | Read More »

    Great Video! Nevada Assemblywoman Faces Off With MSNBC Host Over Bundy Ranch

    Yesterday, MSNBC host Chris Hayes interviewed Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, and the result was a fantastic bit of back and forth about the Bundy ranch situation. As Caleb notes at The Right Scoop, Fiore doesn’t cede ground to Hayes, nor does she let him lead her onto his own talking points. Instead she stays on target and comes across strong and uncompromising. At Hot Air, Jazz | Read More »

    Mitch is in Trouble. #McConnelling

    Mitch is in Trouble. #McConnelling

    This is a thing now. I even got a mentioned on MSNBC because it is such a thing. But this is by far the best version of that thing. Created during the work day by my Art Director, Michael Deppisch. Consider this an open thread obviously.

    My old pal Eric Schmidt – you know, the guy who was hanging out in Obama’s Chicago campaign headquarters on Election Day eve in 2012, only to later bankroll a consulting firm exclusively for Democrats – is at it again, trying to convince the world that he and Google are really, for serious, super-duper upset about the NSA invading our privacy. Schmidt told a conference | Read More »

    Obama: You could afford insurance if you gave up your cable and phone

    Obama: You could afford insurance if you gave up your cable and phone

    In 2009, President Obama famously told a woman that her 100 year old mother who might be refused a pacemaker under Obamacare might need to “simply take pain killers.” This is an attitude common to liberals. They know what’s best and when pushed, they’ll spell it out for you: make whatever accommodations you must but you will comply with what they’ve presented to you as | Read More »

    Does President Obama Think Sandwiches & Taxes are the Same Thing?

    This can’t go unanswered. Last week Kentucky Senatorial candidate Matt Bevin got in hot water for some comments he made about gay marriage. “If it’s all right to have same-sex marriages, why not define a marriage — because at the end of the day a lot of this ends up being taxes and who can visit who in the hospital and there’s other repressions and | Read More »

    EXCLUSIVE: Emails Show SC Attorney General Concerned About Absentee Voter Compliance

    Last week, the Super PAC of which I am a board member, Carolina Conservatives United, announced our intention to push for South Carolina to come into compliance with existing federal election law as it pertains to absentee ballots and the amount of time overseas troops & citizens have to get their votes counted. Federal law requires a 45 day period, however South Carolina currently misses | Read More »

    Thomas Sowell Makes the Case for Ted Cruz

    Thomas Sowell Makes the Case for Ted Cruz

    I’ve spent most of the last 12 hours debating whether or not conservative hero Thomas Sowell jumped the shark with a recent article he wrote about Senator Ted Cruz. In it, Sowell warns against the politics of self-interest and the dangers of failing to unify at delicate points in history. More to the point, he accuses Ted Cruz of working against such unity and invokes | Read More »

    South Carolina Is About To Get Interesting

    Out of all the Republican primaries taking place across the country, there is only one that I have taken an active interest in seeing a particular outcome. Senator Lindsey Graham has given voters a litany of reasons to doubt his loyalty to the ideals of small government conservatism. But really it boils down to this: why should we have to have a “good enough” Senator | Read More »

    Obama’s Plan to Bankrupt Coal Continues Without Congress

    Obama's Plan to Bankrupt Coal Continues Without Congress

    Remember back during the 2008 presidential campaign when Barack Obama promised to bankrupt anyone who wanted to build a coal-fired power plant and essentially shut down the coal industry? For those not paying attention, despite his inability to get cap-and-trade passed, he is still pursuing this plan. Now, he’s doing it via EPA regulations known as New Source Performance Standards (NSPS)– which amount to a “cap” | Read More »
