Atlanta Journal Declares Potential Legal Violations a “Moot Point.” Of Course a Democrat is Involved.
That Jason Carter was soliciting campaign money while the Georgia legislature was in session is “a moot point”, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Why? Because the legislature is not in session any more. Georgia law prohibits state legislators from collecting contributions or pledges while the legislature is in session. Jimmy Carter’s grandson Jason was doing just that. The invitation for a fundraiser this Sunday | Read More »
David Keene Takes the NRA Down the Wrong Path
Update: Maybe the NRA got there on its own. Keene is actually no longer President of the NRA. My mistake. ———————– NRA and former American Conservative Union President David Keene has done it again and this time taken the NRA with him. He has a terrible, embarrassing record of endorsements. His latest embarrassment is, as President of the NRA, endorsing Mike Simpson for Congress in | Read More »
As the Northern Hemisphere begins its slow tilt toward the sun, American Protestants will start giving their churches money to send their children away. These spring break and summer excursions will most often be to tropical places or a few remaining snowy places for skiing. The teenagers can work on their tans on the beach in Central America while sharing the gospel and hammering nails. | Read More »
Jason Carter, Jimmy Carter’s Grandson, Starts His Gubernatorial Campaign With an Ethics Problem
Democrats in Georgia are having such a hard time finding candidates to run for office, they’ve had to go back to the seventies. They’ve conjured up Jimmy Carter’s grandson Jason and Sam Nunn’s daughter Michelle to be their statewide candidates for Governor and Senator. Jason Carter had intended to make ethics a big issue in his gubernatorial campaign. He might want to rethink that with | Read More »
The Georgia Legislature Should Support Allen Peake’s Medical Marijuana Legislation
Today, the Georgia Legislature meets for its final day. By constitutional mandate, the Georgia Legislature can only meet for 40 days. Any legislation that does not pass today will die. My friend Allen Peake has been pushing legislation this year to legalize possession of a form of medical marijuana. It is not, as in some places, marijuana that is smoked. This is an oil based | Read More »
T.W. Shannon for U.S. Senate
I was genuinely disappointed that Jim Bridenstine did not get into the race in Oklahoma. He would have been the best candidate hands down. But we must take the race as it is, not as we wish it to be. That leaves a potential rock star and a congressman. Count me with T.W. Shannon in Oklahoma. Sarah Palin has already endorsed him. I’m sure others | Read More »
The San Francisco Democrats Finally Rule the Roost
“Vladimir Putin did not read Barack Obama’s soul. He just read Obama’s resume and knew he could take him.”In 1984, Jeane Kirkpatrick, a lifelong Democrat who Ronald Reagan appointed Ambassador to the United Nations, took to the stage at the Republican National Convention in Dallas. The Republicans and this Democrat roundly mocked the unseriousness of the Democrats who wanted to replace Ronald Reagan. Calling them | Read More »
Is Hillary Clinton on the Missing Malaysian Airlines 777?
Hillary Clinton must be on the missing Malaysian Airlines 777. That seems to be the only plausible explanation that an unbiased press corps has for not asking her how her Russian reset is going. It was Hillary Clinton who presented a physical reset button to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in 2009. To make a big deal about the Obama Administration resetting and rebuilding a | Read More »
Right-Wing Mobs? No, A Cleaning Crew.
I was not with Ann Coulter in her support of Chris Christie for President. And it took me a lot longer to get to Romney. Ann went to him once it became clear Christie wasn’t running. I waited till all the others were eliminated. But I like Ann and I find myself with her more often than not. But not with her defense of Mitch | Read More »
Judgment and Leadership
Charlie Crist, now running as a Democrat for Governor of Florida, could be a United States Senator. Trey Grayson, now working for a super PAC to elect Democrats, could be a United States Senator too. Bob Bennett, who joined Democrats to come up with a federal individual mandate, could still be a United States Senator. Arlen Specter, who recently passed away, could have died still | Read More »
Why Does Progress Texas Photoshop Paraplegics?
Does Progress Texas have something against paraplegics? Greg Abbott, the Republican candidate for Governor of Texas, is wheelchair bound. But in this attack against him from Progress Texas they’ve photoshopped him standing up. Why? Notice also that they paired him in the attack with a shorter hispanic woman instead of even trying to pit him against Wendy Davis. In fact, Progress Texas, which presumably supports | Read More »
“Drunks,” “Bullies,” “Traitors,” “Fringe,” and Other Things Mitch McConnell Has Called Conservatives
Mitch McConnell is doing his best to walk back his comments about conservatives. He told the New York Times he intended to “crush them everywhere.” Now he says he was only talking about the Jim DeMint founded Senate Conservatives Fund and its candidates — candidates like Ben Sasse supported by Paul Ryan, Mike Lee, Club for Growth, RedState, National Review, and others. Actually, Mitch McConnell | Read More »
Madison Project + Mike Lee + Me
On Wednesday night, I’m going to join the Madison Project and Senator Mike Lee for a Tele-Townhall. Among the topics of discussion will be: How shrinking the federal government and fostering free market competition will benefit average American families while interventionist policies raise the cost of food, fuel, and healthcare – often to benefit well-connected special interests; Ideas for eliminating corporate welfare and corporate favors; | Read More »
‘Crush Them Everywhere’
“Crush them everywhere.” That is not Mitch McConnell’s expectation on beating the Democrats. That is not Mitch McConnell’s hope against Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats. This — “crush them everywhere” — is what Mitch McConnell tells the New York Times he intends to do to conservatives. “They cannot crush this conservative uprising; they can only delay it.” Across the country, as conservatives realize that | Read More »
On the Beach Your Ship is Burning
On the beach your ship is burning, conservatives. You may not realize it. Certainly, many of you did not set fire to your ships. But there on the beach, lighting up both day and night, the ship you sail within the conservative movement is burning on the sand. Many conservatives resent the fights they think others, myself included, have dragged them into. They grumble in | Read More »
