An Inconvenient Truth: Bob Bennett and Tim Bridgewater Together
Months ago I told you Bob Bennett and Tim Bridgewater were cutting a deal. I got so much blowback from so many people I actually had to remove the post from the front page of RedState. I stood by the story, but the brouhaha that resulted necessitated the post going into draft mode so we could get on with the day. Well, I was and | Read More »
The Wall Street Journal Takes the NRA to Task For Its Sell Out to the Left
The Wall Street Journal has a fantastic editorial about just how awful the NRA’s carveout deal with the Democrats is. The NRA may swing a big lobbying stick by virtue of the breadth and voting power of its members, but it draws its legitimacy from the Constitution and it has drawn support on gun rights from those who care about the entire Bill of Rights. | Read More »
Republican Senators Declare Themselves Gutless Wonders
The Politico has a story about Republican Senators running away from Sharron Angle. It includes this gem of gutless wonderdom: Several Senate Republicans told POLITICO that they don’t favor privatizing Social Security, as Angle has supported. Small government conservatives said it doesn’t make sense to eliminate the Energy and Education departments – as she’s called for in the past. And some recoiled at the thought | Read More »
Add Federal Judge Stephen Robinson to the “Must Impeach” List
When Republicans take back Congress, they need to take seriously the issue of federal judges being impeached. Just the other week, a federal judge in Washington ordered the government to act in a way the Supreme Court had already said could not be ordered. Now, a federal judge in New York has thrown out the American standard of one man – one vote. Federal judge | Read More »

Pamela Gorman Drives the Left Crazy
I don’t know what it is about attractive, powerful, conservative women, but they drive the left absolutely crazy. That’s just another reason to support Pamela Gorman. In the Arizona State Senate, Pamela was willing to be the lone vote against matters and was willing to drop amendments on popular legislation to kill it because, while popular among politicians, the legislation would be detrimental to freedom. | Read More »
Barack Obama Embraces His Inner Jimmy Carter
“Barack Obama, like Jimmy Carter before him, has proven himself overwhelmed by the job, not up to the task, and looking for answers in all the wrong places. Let’s hope the nation can survive him.” Perhaps it is because his chief speechwriter has spent the crisis playing beer pong in Georgetown bars. Perhaps it is because while embracing peak oil, the oil spill never piqued | Read More »
To Democrats, Words Are More Dangerous Than Physical Violence
The Democrats are crying foul over a college student videotaping Congressman Etheridge’s assault. You see, it was a right-wing ambush and Bob Etheridge was justified in assaulting the college student. Caught on tape, Etheridge pulled the student’s hand toward him and the student asked to be released. Etheridge refused. This all happened after the student asked Etheridge if the Congressman supported the Obama agenda. Contrast | Read More »

Yet Again the NRA Sells Out Freedom to the Democrats
From the NRA press release on the day of the Citizens United decision, Wayne LaPierre called the decision “…a defeat for arrogant elitists who wanted to carve out free speech as a privilege for themselves and deny it to the rest of us.” SOURCE There are few organizations purportedly on the side of freedom that aggravate me more than the National Rifle Association. In fact, | Read More »
Guess Who Is Ahead in South Carolina?
Easy answer. Nikki Haley is leading the Democrat 55% to 34% according to Rasmussen. Nice. Consider this an open thread.
Did a Candidate for the U.S. Senate Use Your Tax Dollars to Help a Mexican Drug Trafficker?
By now it’s a well known and established fact that Utah Senate candidate Tim Bridgewater isn’t exactly the traditional small business man that he wants Utah voters to believe; rather, he’s a lobbyist who specializes in getting taxpayer money for his own and for his clients’ businesses – including overseas businesses like Indonesia Power. But did Tim Bridgewater stoop so low as to secure a | Read More »

At Least One Indiana Republican Is Showing True Leadership Skills
Mike Pence was on CNN earlier today and Candy Crowley asked him about Mitch Daniels’ proposed truce on social issues. Pence handled it as a real conservative should. He said he “believes with all of [his] heart that Republicans need to continue to fight for the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage with everything [they]‘ve got in 2010 and in 2012.” But he | Read More »
