54% of “political class” think federal government should have unlimited power
Let’s ignore for a minute the 9% of people who have no problem with full government control, according to this Rasmussen poll. That number is disturbing in and of itself. Let’s look at this part: By a 54% to 43% margin, the Political Class believes the federal government should be allowed to do most anything. Mainstream voters reject that view by a 94% to three | Read More »
It’s Pamela Gorman Day!
FTR Radio is hosting Pamela Gorman Day today! I had the pleasure of meeting Pamela Gorman a couple weeks ago at RightOnline in Las Vegas. I was familiar with the AZ-3 race, but was highly impressed with her, and am happy to be able to support her. I’m going to tell my favorite Pamela Gorman story, as she told it to us on the Tammy | Read More »
Rep. Pete Stark: Constitutional Limits on Federal Power Totally Don’t Exist
This is one of those stories that you read and really don’t know whether to take seriously or check for a link to The Onion. Watch this (text after the jump):
Crist further prepares himself for run as a Democrat
Charlie Crist, who defected from the Republican Party just a few months ago upon the realization that he would lose in the primary, is growing more comfortable in his role as an independent Democrat. According to this WSJ article, he’s thinking he found a “sweet spot” by not formally affiliating with either major party. Sure, people are disenchanted with both parties, and each one brings | Read More »
GA-4: Campaigns are hard!
Update: The facebook page linked isn’t her campaign manager. My bad. It’s another guy who spreads his lies and anti-gay agenda for free. As of late, Liz Carter’s primary opponents have worked harder to smear her than they have worked collectively throughout the course of the entire campaign. Maybe they realized she was actually a threat and that a Republican might actually take this district? | Read More »
Remember when Stupak held out for that executive order against Fed abortion funding?
Obama’s exectuive order has been effectively rendered a useless piece of paper. Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The Obama administration has officially approved the first instance of taxpayer funded abortions under the new national government-run health care program. This is the kind of abortion funding the pro-life movement warned about when Congress considered the bill. The Obama Administration will give Pennsylvania $160 million to set up | Read More »
The NAACP vs. Black Americans
The NAACP has made it official: The Tea Party is racist. The attacks are driven by nothing but fear – the Democrats are terrified of the results of the November elections, and are in a visible tizzy. Black voters aren’t nearly as revved up without Barack Obama on the ballot, and stirring up racial tensions turns out Black voters, which helps Democrats. I reckon they | Read More »
Financial Regs Bill/Affirmative Action all in one!
I haven’t figured out why no one is really talking about this yet, so here goes. The Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill, which passed on June 30th, is a mess. As is anything that has “Dodd” and “financial regulations” in the title. Liberty Central did a grat breakdown of some of the issues with this bill here. However, it’s this part that I want to highlight: Did | Read More »
Obama Stumping for Harry Reid…
Harry Reid is clearly in trouble, and now Obama is strengthening his presence in Nevada. His poll numbers haven’t been above the low 40’s in ages, and most of the polling shows Sharron Angle ahead. The Senate Majority Leader seat currently held by Reid is a symbolic one, and would be particularly painful for the Democrats to lose in November. In 2004, Tom Daschle became | Read More »
Killing white babies is okay… in context.
At this point, most of you have heard about the New Black Panther Philadelphia leader King Samir Shabazz and his awful tirade against the “crackers” and their babies. For those of you that missed it, here’s the video. You’d think that would be a pretty easy thing to denounce, right? I mean, who could really support a man like this? Oh, right! The Attorney General | Read More »
RNC Struggles With Fundraising
So the RNC is struggling with fundraising. First reaction: It’s the economy, stupid. The problem is that it’s not. From the Washington Times: Under Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, the Republican Governors Association reported $18.9 million for the April-through-June period — which it says is its largest fundraising quarter ever. Even though it helped finance winning gubernatorial election campaigns in Virginia and New Jersey in November, the RGA | Read More »
What We Can Learn From Yesterday’s Primary
Yesterday was a glorious one for the movement. Nikki Haley won in South Carolina – which really wasn’t a surprise. Gresham Barrett embarrassed himself by even staying in the race, but I suppose it was even more entertaining that way. Utah was a less certain situation. In the absence of any credible polling, no one really had a handle on how either candidate was doing. | Read More »
On the ground in Utah for Mike Lee
FreedomWorks PAC has taken a lot of flack from the Bridgewater minions for being here in Utah for the last couple days before the primary. Apparently, we’re the evil DC establishment that is invading the pure, uncorrupted Utah political process. Here’s the thing – we’re here mobilizing activists from the ranks of our own membership in Utah (about 4,000 total). Tim Bridgewater is the Bob | Read More »
Was Bridgewater behind the nasty mailing that cost Mike Lee an outright victory?
Via FreedomWorks: Nearly two weeks ago, The Salt Lake Tribune broke a story about a controversial mailing that may have cost Republican Senate Candidate Mike Lee an outright victory for the nomination at the recent state party convention. The mailing, sent to Republican Convention Delegates who would soon be selecting the party nominee for U.S. Senate, used LDS temple imagery (a veritable taboo in Utah | Read More »
TN State Rep: “You have to lift up their skirts to see if they’re women.”
Democrats hate women. Rep. Janis Baird Sontany (D-53) said of female Republican state legislators, “You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women. You sure can’t find out by how they vote!” …Because all women are supposed to vote the same way? So much for thinking for yourselves and letting women make “choices.” It’s like pretending that all black people are | Read More »
