Will the South Carolina Democrats Tolerate This Racism?
Phil Bailey sat next to South Carolina State Senator Jake Knotts when Knotts called Governor Nikki Haley, then a candidate for Governor, a “raghead.” Phil Bailey did nothing. Phil Bailey is the Executive Director of the South Carolina Senate Democratic Caucus. It seems he is now intent on one upping Jake Knotts. Bailey, who had no problem with Knotts’ “raghead” comment when even the First | Read More »
The Club For Growth’s Depressing Study: Failure and Lies of the Tea Party Congresscritters
“If the tea party is not much more successful in primarying Republican candidates and then having those guys practice what they preach, the GOP is within a decade of going the way of the Whigs.” There have been many studies out on the “tea party congress” and just how tea party it actually is. One study last year noted that 70% of candidates who went | Read More »
Will Mitch McConnell Stand With Conservatives Against Obama & the Federal Reserve?
The Federal Reserve is not my issue. Audit it if you want, I’m with you. But it’s not something that drives me crazy or makes me passionate. But there is one issue that really gets me and the Fed has been at the center of it lately — crony capitalism. Barack Obama has nominated Jeremy Stein and Jerome Powell to the Federal Reserve Board of | Read More »

House Republicans Still Hate Spending Cuts
Last week, the House passed H.R. 5326, the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, by a vote of 247-163, providing $51.131 billion in discretionary appropriations for fiscal year 2013. That’s $1.61 billion or 3% below the amount of funding provided for these programs in fiscal year 2012–and $731 million or 1.4% below the amount requested by the president for fiscal year 2013. Not | Read More »
The Democrats Train to be Race Baiters #EERS
The Democrats have been taking professional training on how to be race baiters in this election cycle. I’m surprised this hasn’t gotten significant coverage. I’ll get into it tonight and the logical outcomes of Obamacare start to kick in as Obama starts inserting himself into other Presidents’ biographies. You can listen live tonight on the WSB live stream from 6:05 pm to 10pm and call | Read More »
Whether It’s Deb Fischer or Don Stenberg, It’s About Jon Bruning
I like Don Stenberg. He’s a friend. He’s been a great leader in Nebraska. I’d like to see him in the Senate. But over the past month, as Stenberg and Bruning have gone nuclear with each other, Deb Fischer has run up the middle and may very well win the Nebraska Primary today. I’d gladly support her. It seems that in the withering back and | Read More »
May 6, 2012: The Day Obama Lost
If there is a day to finger for Barack Obama losing the Presidency in 2012, it will be Sunday, May 6, 2012. On that day, Joe Biden* went on national television and proclaimed himself in favor of gay marriage. It started a media spiral for the President. Two days after Biden spoke, North Carolina voters voted by overwhelming margins to leave marriage alone. The next | Read More »

The Moral President #EERS
It’s that time again. We’re going to focus on the moral President and more. You can listen live tonight on the WSB live stream and call in at 1-800-WSB-TALK. Consider this an open thread.
On Fairness & Moral Cases
Another day, another socialist takes to the New York Times to denounce capitalism. With his criticism — he is a professional critic, which is a job no socialist society would really see value in except as an agenda of propaganda, but he thrives in the capitalist society he condemns — he premises it on some sort of morality. He mocks Christians for embracing capitalism with | Read More »

Where Is The Balance?
In the past week, I’ve been called a bigot, a hater, had people wish I died, and had people wish Christians had died, been rounded up and killed, or experienced their own personal holocaust. All this came from proponents of gay marriage. The media won’t cover most of this. The media sees most stories as victims versus victimizers and those who support gay marriage are | Read More »
