    Union Thugs Shout "I'll Kill a Mother F***** With a Gun!" While Assaulting Opponents

    *UPDATE* Dana Loesch has set up a donation page to help put together a reward to locate the perpetrator of the assault so that he may be reported to the proper authorities. Steven Crowder is in Michigan recording the protests that are taking place. At some point, as Moe Lane noted earlier, the crowd started tearing down the AFP tent that was there.

    Three Tools to Educate an Uninformed Electorate on the Fiscal Cliff

    Three Tools to Educate an Uninformed Electorate on the Fiscal Cliff

    Over several months now, I have been devoting attention to the question of how conservatives can win both policy debates and elections, not by appropriating policies that Democrats advocate and putting a Republican stamp on them, but rather by educating Americans and converting those who don’t already share our perspective to it. My basic thesis is that we win by getting more people to agree | Read More »

    Watch Radio Host David Sirota Flip Out on Mike Rosen

    This actually happened over a month ago but seems to have mostly flown under the radar.  I think it’s worth a look.  After all, it’s rare that you get the joy of seeing an established left winger completely melt down in front of an audience. No, wait it’s not rare at all actually. But definitely fun. Such was the case when watching David Sirota, a | Read More »

    VIDEO: There's Still Time President Obama

    In 2008, President Obama campaigned on hope and change. He made lofty promises from closing Gitmo to changing the sea levels. At a debate in 2008, in between John McCain obsessively saying “my friends”, we heard a different Barack Obama than teh one we hear today. One that believed we must deal with our entitlement crisis and we must deal with it swiftly. He addressed | Read More »

    Campaign Sources: The Romney Campaign was a Consultant Con Job

    Campaign Sources: The Romney Campaign was a Consultant Con Job

    If you spend your time watching politics and haven’t been hiding in a deep depression since Tuesday, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about “ORCA.” According to the Washington Post, ORCA “was designed as a first-of-its-kind tool to employ smartphones to mobilize voters, allowing them to microtarget which of their supporters had gone to the polls.” There is now widespread condemnation of the program as | Read More »

    How to Stop Losing

    Several months ago I wrote an article condemning the manner in which we conducted our tax arguments. I felt they were too divisive and failed to teach anyone why our policies were right. In short, while it feels good to hold up a piece of paper complaining that the 53% pays for everything, it does little to convince the 47% to vote for us. And | Read More »

    GOP Poll Observers Being Blocked in North Carolina

    Reports are coming in that Lenoir County North Carolina has not allowed GOP Poll Watchers into the polls all day because, they claim, something was wrong with a draft of the paperwork submitted with the poll watchers names. However, the State Board of Elections has recommended that the county allow the poll watchers access as, one assumes, the integrity of the process should take priority | Read More »

    Reading the Tea Leaves: Google Donates Big Money to Obama

    There’s no shortage of warnings about what the next four years could involve should President Obama win reelection whether it’s the continuation of Obamacare implementation or Supreme Court nominations. But it’s worth noting the sources of his contributions as well, not only from individuals but from corporations. Specifically which corporations and what the influence of those corporations might tell us about legislative priorities of a | Read More »

    VIDEO: With Apologies to Chevy Owners

    via Revealing Politics: General Motors continues to be one of President Obama’s key talking points with the now famous line, “Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive!” And while it’s true that after receiving billions of dollars in bailout money from both President Bush & President Obama, the question must be asked: at what cost? Cost aside from the billions of dollars we’ll never | Read More »

    Big Bird vs. Coal

    “If you don’t have a record to run on… you make a big election about small things.” – Barack Obama, 2008. In 2008, Barack Obama made the above comment. In 2012, he is proving it to be true, attempting to refocus this year’s presidential election on the weighty topic of… Big Bird. But while Obama attempts to eke out a win by spotlighting a muppet, | Read More »

    CAUGHT ON TAPE: Democrat Congressional Candidate Tussles with Cameraman & Takes Camera

    In the world of politics, trackers have become a part of campaign life. Sometimes they are professionals and sometimes they are concerned citizens who are simply filming and happen to catch something on camera.

    Government Finds New Ways to Perpetuate the Bailouts of Fannie & Freddie

    The cost of the bailouts seems never-ending and more of the mounting evidence that it didn’t work, like a bailout recipient laying off 16,000 workers this year, continue to make the news. Tied to the root cause of the financial meltdown of 2007-2008, are mortgage giants Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae in light of their penchant for bundling sub-prime mortgage securities in the years preceding | Read More »
