Rand Paul Wins CPAC Straw Poll

March 9, 2014

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul won the CPAC straw poll yesterday with 31% of the total vote, getting nearly three times more votes than the nearest competitor, Ted Cruz.  In case you missed it, here is Rand Paul’s speech last Thursday at CPAC.  Generally, these polls are not bellwethers or harbingers, but are a useful snapshot.

Russia to Invade Ukraine

March 1, 2014

Events are moving fast in Ukraine:  violent protests, parliament removing their leader, an interim government trying to catch its breath, etc.  Complicating the situation is the ethnic makeup of Ukraine — 17.3% are Russian, most of whom live in the eastern part of the country. After making plenty of noise about possibly sending troops, the [...]

Talking with Taliban and Syrian Rebels Evoke Shades of the Cold War

June 18, 2013

In our not-too-distant past, America clearly stood for freedom and free markets around the world, as those concepts were in our best political and economic interests. Then the Cold War came and we had to do business with sketchy people in order to out-maneuver even more sketchy people bent on world domination.  Yet, we promoted [...]

Midnight Movie Massacre in Colorado

July 20, 2012

While the details are still being revealed as I write, what we do know is that a 24-year old gunman named James Holmes went into a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado.  Using noxious gas canisters and 2-3 guns, Holmes killed at least 12 people, wounding 58.  Those numbers are likely [...]

Todd Palin Tips Hat to Newt

January 9, 2012

It was reported today that Sarah Palin’s husband Todd spoke with Newt Gingrich this morning, offering his support to the Speaker’s campaign to replace Obama.  Still no word on who Sarah’s going to support.  McCain’s supporting Romney because McCain, for establishmentarian reasons, must.  Sarah will probably go rogue from her former 2008 campaign partner. I [...]

Establishment Hero, John McCain

July 28, 2011

Over the last day or two, the ruling class elites in the Republican Party establishment have gotten their knives out.  The Tea Party is more of an existential threat to them than the Democrats are, so an aggressive push against them has reared its head now that the GOP’s Tea Party faction is facing maximum [...]

Huckabee’s Gaffe May Sink 2012 Run

March 2, 2011

Potential 2012 GOP Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee repeatedly told the Steve Malzberg Show audience that Obama grew up in Kenya, rather than Indonesia, but went further by creating a narrative about an anti-British sentiment Obama demonstrates as a result (fyi: Indonesia was under Dutch not British control). Gaffe?  Sure.  Bad gaffe?  Potentially.  In fact, I’m [...]

Time to Tackle Entitlements

February 16, 2011

It’s going to be an interesting two years.  The GOP, at the prodding of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and the GOP Freshman Class, is apparently serious about attempting to tackle entitlement reform this year.  Obama’s sham budget does nothing to address the fiscal mess that we have gotten ourselves into, and the GOP appears ready [...]

Liberals Don’t Understand the Constitution

February 1, 2011

We often talk about how liberals don’t believe in the Constitution, and don’t adhere to its principles.  Most Conservatives know that from observation.  Yet it is becoming clearer and clearer that, not only do Liberals not believe in the Constitution, they don’t even know what it says.  Back during the ObamaCare debate, Rep. John Conyers [...]

Palin Slams Liberal Obama and His WTF Slogan

January 27, 2011

In yesterday’s fantastic column on the State of the Union, Ann Coulter managed to work in a dig against John McCain’s 2008 campaign when she criticized the Maverick for his excessive cooperation with the left: You knew it was bad when John McCain leapt up and enthusiastically applauded. The last time I saw McCain applaud [...]

We Must Not Let the Elite Define Us!

January 11, 2011

In the aftermath of the Arizona shootings, many on the left disgustingly blamed Sarah Palin for the act of an insane madman.  Over the last several months, in conversations that I have had with fellow politically-aware Conservatives, talk naturally turns to potential GOP nominee in 2012, and of course, Sarah Palin’s name comes up.  With [...]

Liberals Exploit Shooting of Gabrielle Giffords to Smear Sarah Palin

January 8, 2011

I don’t know why I’m even posting this because it is so predictable.  With Congressman Gabrielle Giffords still in intensive care, some liberals and the media (but I repeat myself) are using the tragedy to dishonestly smear Sarah Palin.  The source of their latest faux outrage is this “target list” that Sarah Palin made in [...]

“Restoring Honor” Rally a Success

August 30, 2010

In case you missed it, Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally in Washington was a complete success, focusing on honoring our troops and their sacrifices as well as focusing on returning to God.  I watched the first hour on C-Span Saturday morning through Sarah Palin’s speech honoring those serving in the military.  She was slated to [...]

And So Begins the Rationing of Health Care

August 17, 2010

Leave it to the Brits to tackle a story that we missed.  Of course, the Brits have 50+ years of experience in this area, so they should know the warning signs.  I’m talking specifically about Nationalized Health Care.  The story, out of the UK Telegraph, recounts how, after a couple of studies that showed a [...]

Rep. Cohen’s Big Time Tea Party Insults

April 5, 2010

Tennessee Democrat Representative Steve Cohen is sure to really get under the skin of the Tea Party Nation with this ridiculous interview with the Young Turks last week: Jeez!  Why all the hatin’ on the Tea Party?  I do appreciate the honesty that Cohen displays on this talk show.  He obviously felt comfortable enough to [...]

Miss Him Yet?

February 10, 2010

Well, duh, of course we do!  But, this is an actual billboard paid for by a “group of small business owners and individuals who just felt like Washington was against them” up in Wyoming, Minnesota.  Those who paid for the billboard want to remain anonymous, but their sentiment is made plain:  as much as George [...]

Scandal! Sarah Palin Used Notes While Delivering Speech to Tea Party Convention!

February 7, 2010

The rank hypocrisy of the left never ceases to amaze me.  At this very moment, the liberal blogosphere is salivating over the fact that Sarah Palin had a few bullet-point notes written on her hand while she delivered her speech to the National Tea Party Convention.  Of course these same liberals rarely utter a peep [...]

Rahm’s F*&%ing Retarded Statement

The President’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used the phrase “f*&%ing retarded” during a strategy session last August, which has only recently come to light.  So, here we go — the Politically-Correct Police are on the move! Some in the news media are making a HUGE deal about this.  So Rahm needed to get the [...]

Tea Partying the National Tea Party Convention?

January 23, 2010

Seeing the widespread grassroots power of the amorphous Tea Party Movement it should come as no shock that some have sought to create an exclusive national leadership as an attempt to coalesce the movement around certain people, events, and message.  The catch is trying to be the first ones to do it so that your [...]

What’s the Big Deal about Sarah Stumping for McCain?

January 22, 2010

No one can ever accuse me of being a fan of Arizona Sen. John McCain.  True, I’ve always admired his service in the war, and also some of his views on spending and his consistent refusal to take earmarks.  Yet at the same time, his constant focus on bi-partisanship and coddling up to the media [...]

Palin Strikes Back at William Shatner

December 14, 2009

In July, William Shatner appeared on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, doing a poetry “interpretation” of Sarah Palin’s farewell speech as Governor of Alaska.  Shatner’s interpretation was mildly humorous, although some Palin fans took it as an affront to her and yet another media attack (I personally did not find it particularly offensive, but [...]

Limbaugh Interviews Palin on Policy

November 18, 2009

Sarah Palin, in the midst of her media tour for Going Rogue, appeared on the Rush Limbaugh radio program yesterday.  Rather than interviewing her exclusively about the book, Limbaugh asked her a number of questions about policy matters, from taxes and spending, to health care, to energy, to Afghanistan and Iran.  Palin’s answers were detailed, [...]
