    In the race for U.S. Senate in Texas, the conservative candidate clearly is Ted Cruz. His record of fighting for conservative ideals is clear, as I have noted before. Senator DeMint has endorsed him, as has Senator Mike Lee, the Club for Growth and a number of other important conservative voices. But the establishment and conventional wisdom remains behind Lt. Gov Dewhurst as the favorite | Read More »

    The World According to David Brock

    David Brock says he got famous for calling Anita Hill “a slut.”That is his own description of how he became famous.Compounding the irony, David Brock says Rush Limbaugh made him famous. That’s right folks, the head of Media Matters For America, on a personal quest to destroy Rush Limbaugh after spectacularly failing to do the same to Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Anita Hill, and more, | Read More »

    Sinners In the Hands of Anthony Kennedy

    “The left is pretty sure if they scream partisanship loudly enough, no Republican will stand up and defend the Court as the left assaults its integrity.” Yesterday the left descended into madness. The madness came early in the day. It happened shortly after 10 o’clock in the morning. Justice Anthony Kennedy opened his mouth and uttered his first question on the issue of the individual | Read More »

    Obama in South Korea is no Reagan in Reykjavik

    One the arguments Mitt Romney’s opponents have against him was defined by Romney’s own campaign’s “etch-a-sketch” comment. No one seems to know what Mitt Romney really stands for and the etch-a-sketch comment gave a visual image, created by Romney’s own campaign, to drive home the lack of trust in Mitt Romney.With an open microphone, Barack Obama has now done the same to himself. One of | Read More »

    Evan Feinberg in Pennsylvania

    The Republican Primary in Pennsylvania is one month away. I have documented just how terrible Congressman Tim Murphy is. I’d like to encourage you to support his opponent, Evan Feinberg. Evan is endorsed by Senators Tom Coburn and Rand Paul. He is a solid conservative and a great fit for Tim Murphy’s district. Conservatives lost a primary with Don Manzullo’s defeat last week. What conservatives | Read More »

    MSNBC’s Karen Finney Says the Koch Brothers Killed Trayvon Martin

    Trayvon Martin‘s death in Florida is a terrible tragedy made even worse by a police department that seemingly bungled the investigation. There are multiple eyewitnesses, some who saw the shooter, George Zimmerman, yelling for help. Others saw Trayvon Martin yelling for help. It shouldn’t be a partisan issue. But MSNBC decided to make it one. According to Karen Finney on MSNBC, the Koch Brothers, NRA, | Read More »

    Nikki Haley at the NRCC

    I was at a separate meeting in Florida a few weeks ago where Nikki Haley spoke. She left such a good impression people were still taking about her the next day. It’s not often you hear people putting Thatcher’s name in the same sentence with the Governor of one of the fifty states. She really left a strong, positive impression.Here’s her speech to the National | Read More »

    People Are Badly Misinterpreting Rick Santorum

    Much hay is being made of Rick Santorum saying he’d prefer Obama to Romney. Except that is not what he said or what he meant. Certainly he could have had a clarifying clause in his statement, but given the context, I think he was saying no more and no less than what I have been saying.I’m on record thinking it is over and Romney is | Read More »
