McDaniel Blows it in Mississippi by Ignoring Blacks
  30 Jun 2014     1:05 am

Incumbent Republican Senator Thad Cochran’s successful game plan, which drove his run-off victory over Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel for Mississippi’s Republican Senate nomination, was unconventional.
But most incredible was the success of this game plan – to reach out to liberal black churches and get Democrat black voters to turn out and vote for Cochran – despite being executed in broad daylight.

Soon after Cochran lost to McDaniel in the primary, necessitating a run-off because McDaniel fell short of getting 50 percent of the vote, papers reported the intent of Cochran’s …

Court Decision in California will Improve Education
  23 Jun 2014     1:36 am

California superior court decision, which struck down teacher tenure law in California public schools, is good news for everyone worried about America’s future.
The decision, finding these provisions unconstitutional and discriminatory against low-income and minority students, was even applauded by Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

With the success of this lawsuit, similar suits can be anticipated around the country.
Everyone, except the teachers unions, seems to grasp that public education in America, particularly in low-income communities, suffers because of lack of competition.
The lawsuit, filed by 9 California public school students, was backed by a …

In Today’s America, “Mainstream” Means Left
  16 Jun 2014     1:00 am

Just when Tea Party obituaries were being sounded around the country, Washington fixture of 42 years, Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran, loses to upstart Tea Party candidate Chris McDaniel.

And one week later, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, in the blockbuster of this year’s political season, is booted out of office in the Virginia Republican primary by an economics professor from Randolph-Macon College, total undergraduate enrollment – 1,312 students.
Turns out that reports of the death of the Tea Party are greatly exaggerated.
According to the New York Times editorial page, writing about Cantor’s …

Why Are Establishment Republicans Supporting Thad Cochran?
  9 Jun 2014     1:59 am

Anyone that wants to know what is wrong with today’s Republican Party need only look to the state of Mississippi.
A 76-year-old Republican Senator, Thad Cochran, who has been serving in the United States Congress for 42 years, is running yet again for another six-year term. This, while his dementia-ridden wife has been sitting in a nursing home for the last 14 years.

In the primary last Tuesday, Cochran lost by half a point to Tea Party Republican challenger Chris McDaniel. But because McDaniel garnered 49.6 percent of the vote, short of …

Harry Reid Threatens Private Property in America
  2 Jun 2014     1:29 am

The Commerce Department reports that first quarter GDP contracted by one percent. The Wall Street Journal notes that a contraction of GDP during a time not in recession is rare.

So we continue in the slowest economic recovery since the end of World War II, with unemployment, in the 6th year of the Obama regime, at 6.3 percent, still well above its historic average.
According to a recent Gallup poll, the economy is the number issue on the minds of Americans. Ninety one percent of Republicans and 87 percent of Democrats say it …

Can Republicans Be As Ideological As Obama?
  26 May 2014     3:47 am

Talk about Republican Party differences between the “establishment” and the Tea Party is taking attention from where it really needs to be focused – on the real issues facing the nation.
With all our differences, Americans agree that we’re on the wrong track.

The latest Gallup poll asking “Are you satisfied or dissatisfied with the way things are going in the United States at this time?” shows just 25 percent satisfied. Even among Democrats just 35 percent are satisfied.
Lest you think that Americans are chronically unhappy, satisfaction in 2000, when George W. …

Blacks, Evangelicals Will Continue Fight for Traditional Marriage
  19 May 2014     12:35 am

In 1831, a French aristocrat named Alexis de Tocqueville arrived in America and spent several years travelling and studying life in the communities of the new nation.

He produced a book called Democracy in America which Harvard professor of government Harvey Mansfield calls “at once the best book ever written on democracy and the best book ever written on America.”
Tocqueville looked at America with open eyes and saw its strengths and its flaws. He reported with honesty about the human damage caused by slavery. But he also saw the beginnings of …

Tea Party Alive And Well – And Influencing Blacks
  12 May 2014     1:59 am

What’s all the crowing about regarding North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis’ victory in the North Carolina Republican Senate primary this week? I’m talking about the crowing that this is some kind of defeat for the Tea Party.

Sure, Greg Brannon was the Tea Party candidate and endorsed by Rand Paul. And, yes, the Republican establishment big names – including, of course, Mr. Establishment, Karl Rove – came out and backed Tillis with endorsements and lots of money.
But let’s not get carried away, folks. Tillis is an experienced politician with solid …

Unhealthy Trends in Nation Beg for Conservative Leadership
  28 Apr 2014     12:02 am

A new, sweeping demographic snapshot of the United States, “The Next America,” has been produced by the Pew Research Center.
The data and graphs present a stunning picture of how dramatically the United States has changed and how dramatically it will continue to change.

The big themes that one walks away with is that America is getting older, less white, less religious, less traditional, and less patriotic. These trends suggest big questions regarding the future of the country and what the implications are regarding our politics and public policy.
In 1960, 9.2 percent …

T.W. Shannon – Rising Black Republican Star
  21 Apr 2014     12:41 am

In January of 2013 T.W. Shannon established two milestones.
He became the first black speaker of the Oklahoma House of Representatives. And, at the age of 34, he became Oklahoma’s youngest House speaker in history.

Also noteworthy is that this young black American is a Republican.
Now T.W. Shannon is making new headlines. He has stepped down from his position as House speaker to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Oklahoma Republican Senator Tom Coburn.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex) has just joined Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), Dr. Ben Carson and Sarah …

Repeal and replace Obamacare
  14 Apr 2014     1:11 am

The announced departure of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius marks the end of a chapter of American history. Sibelius, aside from President Obama, has been the most prominent public face on the signature initiative of the Obama administration – the Affordable Health Care Act.

The question before Americans today is whether we are concluding the first chapter of a dream come true or whether this may be the beginning of the end of a nightmare.
I’m hoping Americans will wake up and see Obamacare for the nightmare it is.
Victory dances are taking place …

Fewer Limits on Campaign Contributions Strengthens America
  7 Apr 2014     3:14 am

The Supreme Court’s decision last week in McCutcheon v Federal Election Commission, eliminating the total limit that an individual can contribute in an election cycle to candidates and party committees, amounts to a shot of adrenalin to American democracy.

The court ruled that such limits violate First Amendment free speech protection.
Limits remain on the total funds that an individual can contribute to a given candidate in an election cycle. But the limit on the total contributions that an individual can make are now gone.
The principle involved – that participation in elections …

The Problem Is Liberalism, Not Racism
  31 Mar 2014     7:49 am

When Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif, went off on Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis, for his remarks that “We have got a tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work,” the wrong part what she had to say got all the attention.

The big buzz that Congressional Black Caucus member Lee generated was her accusation that Ryan’s remarks were a “thinly veiled racial attack.”
But the part of her remarks …

Despite Big Challenges, Conservatives Will Continue to Fight
  24 Mar 2014     5:37 am

The recent upset victory by Republican candidate David Jolly for the open seat in Florida’s 13th congressional district, a district carried by Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, has produced a rush of excitement in Republican circles.

This coupled with polling data – Americans are increasingly unhappy with our president, with his signature health care law, with an economy still far from recovery, and with perceived weak American leadership on the international stage – is producing Republican optimism about 2014 mid-term election prospects and about 2016.
But while unhappy voters may favor …

Strengthen the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act
  17 Mar 2014     12:02 am

One year ago, on March 18, 2013, the trial of abortion monster Dr. Kermit Gosnell began in Philadelphia. Two months later Gosnell was convicted on three charges of murder, 21 felony counts of performing illegal late-term abortions, and 211 counts of violating the 24-hour informed consent laws.

Gosnell’s convictions really just reflected the tip of the iceberg of what was going on in that clinic. Until inspectors showed up in February 2010 as result of investigation into suspected illegal drug prescription use, Gosnell’s facility operated uninspected for 17 years. According to …

Why Matt Bevin is Challenging Mitch McConnell
  10 Mar 2014     12:02 am

It’s with mixed reviews that the Tea Party is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its emergence onto the nation’s political scene.
According to a Pew Research Center survey, unfavorability rating of the Tea Party stood at 45 percent in October 2013, up from 25 percent in February 2010. Favorability was at 30 percent, modestly down from 33 percent where it stood in February 2010.

Why the unfavorable trend?
There is no instance where any Tea Party principle has been shown to be off base.
If there has been a single defining theme of the …

The Cultural War Against Christians
  3 Mar 2014     6:21 am

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was right to veto SB1062, which would have amended the Arizona Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
The bill, per most interpretations I’ve read, would have given broad discretion to business owners, because of their religious convictions, to refuse to do business with anyone associated with homosexual lifestyles.

Religious freedom is about protection of your right to practice your religion and not being forced to violate it.
However, the right to religious freedom does not mean the right to write-off and marginalize into non-existence a whole class of citizens whom you …

Yes, We Should Discuss the Clintons’ Past
  24 Feb 2014     12:31 am

When Kentucky Senator and Republican presidential aspirant Rand Paul re-surfaced the Monica Lewinsky scandal as relevant to Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy, fellow Republican Karl Rove immediately took him to task on national television.

“Frankly, Rand Paul spending a lot of time talking about the mistakes of Bill Clinton does not look like a big agenda for the future of the country,” said Rove.
Actually, it was Paul’s wife Kelley who first brought it up in a Vogue Magazine interview. Why should Republicans be accused of a “war on women” when Mrs. Clinton’s …

Ted Cruz and Debt Ceiling Gamesmanship
  17 Feb 2014     12:09 am

Once again, bitter feelings are being cast in the direction of Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz.
With the House passing the “clean” debt ceiling bill and sending it to the Democrat controlled Senate, it was clear that this was the bill that was going to get passed and sent to the president.

But Cruz didn’t want to let Senate Republicans, including Minority leader Mitch McConnell, off the hook and give President Obama a blank check to once again increase the debt ceiling as we are drowning in red ink. He didn’t want …

MyRAs – Washington’s Latest Scam
  10 Feb 2014     12:02 am

The president’s annual state of the union address is another example of how dysfunctional our government in Washington has become.

Article 2, section 3 of the US Constitution says that the president “shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union….”
The president is the chief executive of our government. As chief executive, it makes sense that he report periodically about the state of affairs to the body responsible for passing laws, the Congress, so they have a sense of what needs to be done.
If …
