Democrats & the Blue Green Alliance: Union Flunkies Flunking History.
There is a question that has been debated in some circles for a while now: Are the union-controlled Democrats purposely trying to drive the nation into another Great Depression, or are they just that ignorant?

The OneNation March: November’s Choices Are Clearer Than Ever
The choices in November and beyond have never, ever been clearer… They came, they preached Marx, they trashed D.C., disrespected WWII vets (yes, those are SEIU signs), attacked Tea Parties as ‘insidious’ and ‘villainous,’ and they showed the rest of America what vile contempt they have for the Land of the Free. By all accounts, it was a success. For they were finally able to | Read More »

A Pitchfork Moment: How Washington State Voters Can Shackle Serial Job Killers
If jobs are the oxygen that fuels a nation’s economy, then politicians with their heavy-handed regulations, unions and high taxes, are the serial killers that strangle the creators of those jobs.

GOTV: Can a Leaderless Army Defeat the Leviathan of the Left?
Countdown to Nov. 2nd: 37 days. Perhaps it is from spending too many years in Chicago; or, perhaps, it is his SEIU/ACORN training. In either case, our President has a fondness for “The Chicago Way,” even going so far as once having used the line: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” In November, many freedom-loving Americans (and their candidates) will | Read More »
