This evening, the debate we’ve all been waiting for will finally begin. Not traditionally a debate most Americans focus on, the lone Vice Presidential debate has become more of a focus this year due to the President’s poor performance in the only debate thus far. The Vice Presidential candidates have been relatively secluded the last week, both working overtime to study for tonight’s debate. Vice | Read More »
I’ve made no attempts to hide my former Democrat self, as anyone who knows me can attest. I enjoy connecting with other reformed Democrats and sharing stories of the group-think we were a part of, unbeknownst to us at the time of course. That there are so many of us is a large part of why I find it hard to resist debating Democrats today; | Read More »

As tensions continue to rise in the Middle East, so does the price of oil and concerns that energy supplies from the region may be disrupted.

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has said that he will move forward with the Keystone XL pipeline project that | Read More »
Google Profits From Sex Trafficking
Recently the issue of sex trafficking came to light in the cities hosting the RNC and DNC, as large gatherings typically exacerbate what has become the second largest illegal industry in the world. However, traffickers don’t have to wait for conventions to come around, the internet provides them with unlimited opportunities to commit their crimes.

VIDEO: Bart Stupak says HHS Mandate Violates Executive Order and is Illegal
Bart Stupak was a vital swing vote in the Obamacare debate 2 years ago. As a pro-life Democrat he could not support Obama’s signature initiative without some assurance that abortion would not be covered by the monstrous healthcare overhaul.
Sex Trafficking At The Conventions
As thousands gathered last week for the Republican National Convention and will this week for the Democratic National Convention, another major story goes largely unreported right outside the convention doors. As is the case with other large events, sex trafficking will spike in the convention cities and local efforts to fight the problem may partially be in vain.
UPDATE: Jumah At The DNC A Bust
Jumah At The DNC, a two day event sponsored by the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), did not turn out as organizers expected this past Saturday.

Backstage at the RNC
Yesterday marked the official start of the 40th Republican National Convention and after two years of planning, the setup shows the thoughtfulness of the design.

Women Pilots in Afghanistan Up In The Air
As U.S. and NATO forces have begun to withdraw from Afghanistan, problems previously manageable for the Afghan air force have become serious concerns, with no resolution in sight. As of June, the majority of their helicopters joined already grounded cargo planes deemed unfit to fly due to maintenance and safety issues such as missing parts, a lack of spare parts, and generally just being old. | Read More »
Paul Ryan: Radical American
If there’s anything we’ve come to expect from the Obama administration and his media lackeys, it’s demonizing those opposed to his agenda. So it was no surprise when his campaign’s immediate response to Mitt Romney’s Vice Presidential pick of Paul Ryan was to label him “radical”. In the same predictable fashion, Democrats cheered at another chance to play the radical card: “I haven’t been this | Read More »
Do Women Like Paul Ryan?
One of the most immediate questions from the media was whether women voters would back Paul Ryan, given that he cares about the economy first and holds a decisive opinion on the matter of their uteri. It’s a serious question. The women’s vote is one both sides work hard to secure. Fortunately, Mary Katharine Ham & Kelly Maher have posted a concise video that sums | Read More »
Be Quiet Chick-fil-A, You Know the Rule!
Update: I spoke today on the radio with Wild Bill McKubby from Z-94.5, out of Baxley, GA, about the Chick-fil-A controversy and today’s Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. It’s the age old rule, ingrained in our society since the left deemed it so: Discussing politics and religion in public is rude. Chick-fil-A somehow missed the memo and this past week has suffered a constant barrage of | Read More »
Candidate Interview: Dan Forest
From the diaries Republicans in North Carolina will head to the polls Tuesday to choose their candidate for Lt. Governor and, while runoff elections usually have a smaller turnout, voters would be wise to participate in this race in the effort to take back the state from Democrats. Dan Forest, an architect from Raleigh and son of Sue Myrick, will be up against Tony Gurley, | Read More »
