SPLC Labeling FRC As A “Hate Group” Endangered My Life
  8 Feb 2013     4:41 am      Anna Maria Hoffman

by Anna Maria Hoffman

On Wednesday, Floyd Lee Corkins II, who was responsible for the  Family Research Council shooting on August 15, 2012, pleaded guilty to three charges, which included committing an act of terrorism.While interviewed by the FBI, Corkins admitted that he wanted to “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in victims’ faces, and kill the guard.”I was one of those people who could have been his victim. I was on the 6th floor of the FRC building working on my pro-life internship assignments. I could have lost my life. My …

So God Made a Farmer…
  5 Feb 2013     6:25 pm      Anna Maria Hoffman

by Caleb Parke
Among the majority of Super Bowl commercials with fast-paced, carefree humor, one ad made everyone stop and listen. No, it wasn’t Beyonce’s voice — it was the nostalgic voice of Paul Harvey.
The commercial features captivating images of farmers, highlighting the hard work they do before the sun rises until after the sun goes down in rough elements and tough times.
I am reminded of all the stories my grandpa told me growing up and listening to Paul Harvey give “The Rest of the Story.”
This ad lit up Twitter and …

Dear Fellow Females: Firearms, Not Rape Whistles, Best Deter Criminals
  5 Feb 2013     6:13 pm      Anna Maria Hoffman

by Gabriella Hoffman

The Left is relentless in their efforts to ban guns. They will stop at nothing to see every law abiding gun owner disarmed and helpless. It is also apparent that the Second Amendment means bupkis to them. Instead of using firearms to deter criminals, leftists have proposed women taking up rape whistles and scissors.What? 
We’re often told that women shouldn’t be able to handle guns because they’re “scary killing machines,” yet somehow we’re now expected to serve on the front lines. But I digress… Additionally, the Left views women as victims …

The YOLO Effect
  30 Jan 2013     1:57 am      Anna Maria Hoffman

by Levi Fox
You only live once.
This twist of carpe diem, coined by Canadian rapper Drake, has become the anthem of our culture.
In the 2013 season debut of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Maroon 5′s Adam Levine, the comedians of New York’s finest satirically countered this debaucherous message of “YOLO.”

In comparison with this SNL digital short, the idea that “you have only one life to live” can present itself with two reactions:
One—Eat. Drink. Be merry. Repeat.
Two—Don’t waste it.
Pop culture drives you through door number one. Society propagates a worldview contrary to what …

The Communication Cliff
  10 Dec 2012     12:01 am      Robert Cleveland

Republicans should be less worried about the Fiscal Cliff than about their own Communication Cliff. It seems that the GOP leadership has been gripped by a great communicative ineptitude, and until they escape from its grasp, they will continue to languish in political poverty, taking blame for fake crisis after fake crisis manufactured by the Democrats for the express purpose of placing blame for our nation’s continuing economic woes at the feet of the Republican Party.
Our nation’s leaders have been focused on this Fiscal Cliff for weeks now, and it …

On 10th Anniversary, Netroots Bummed That They’ve Been Marginalized
  25 Oct 2012     8:24 am      William Teach

At one point, the Netroots, the bloggers and such on the Left, were a major force within the Democrat Party. That was a time when George W. Bush was in office, and Democrats wanted that cool, sweet money and support from people who intentionally decided to see how crazy they could be. Who constantly referred to W as a monkey, who wrote and said disgusting things about Bush, who were constantly calling for his death, etc and so on. And the Daily Beast has sad face story up about their …

The Slow, Painful Coming Death Of The Independent, Liberal Blogosphere
  25 Oct 2012     3:07 am      John Hawkins

Back in July of 2011, I wrote a piece that got a lot of attention called The Slow, Painful Coming Death Of The Independent, Conservative Blogosphere (Part 2 here).
Long story short, the point of the column was that the market is saturated and that the opportunities for a small blogger with talent but no money and name recognition have shrunk considerably since the early days of the blogosphere.
Just to give you an example of how much things have changed, when I got started back in 2001, I was …

UVA College Democrats Accidentally Blast Awkward E-Mail
  25 Sep 2012     10:04 pm      Matt Vespa

Justin Higgins at JHPolitics has obtained a rather awkward email detailing a meeting of the University of Virginia’s College Democrats chapter.  In the email, we reportedly had a woman named Carmen who went nuts, a bad turnout at their phone bank, and a bad turnout canvasing. As Higgins noted, their plan to remedy their unenthused cohorts is to conscript “hotties” from their respective sororities. The first lesson of E-Mail 101 is to be mindful of who is on the recipient list.

Gawker Wants Us to ‘Sympathize’ with Pedophiles
  10 Sep 2012     5:50 am      Matt Vespa

Cord Jefferson’s September 7 column on Gawker should churn your stomach.  He wrote about how some consider pedophilia a sexual orientation and how it deserves public sympathy.  The first sentence stopped me cold – “it’s not easy to listen to Terry talk about the time he had sex with a seven-year-old girl.”
It started with him [Terry] walking around the house naked with an erection, making sure to amble past the little girl and inspire her curiosity. After doing that a couple times, Terry began to masturbate with the door open. When his …

Weekly Standard Says Christie “Under Serious Consideration” for VP Spot
  6 Aug 2012     10:15 pm      Matt Vespa

Say What? New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie is now under “serious consideration” for the number two spot on the ticket.  At least that’s what Stephen Hayes and Bill Kristol at The Weekly Standard have insinuated in their post published today.  I know the chatter about who the nominee will be is intensifying, but from I’ve heard from top conservative activists at the AFPF’s Defending the American Dream Summit this past weekend is that T-Paw is probably going to be Mitt’s running mate.
Some have clamored for Rep. Paul Ryan due …

Video Interview with Glenn Reynolds on The Higher Education Bubble
  7 Jul 2012     4:19 pm      Ed Driscoll

Since my blog was one of many inspired by Instapundit.com in the immediate wake of 9/11, and since it’s celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, I had wanted to do a video interview with Glenn Reynolds to discuss the history and state of the Blogosphere. Given that he has a new “Broadside” (much longer than most magazine articles, but shorter than most books) from Encounter Books on the Higher Education Bubble and the impact of its aftermath on both students and academia, this seemed like the perfect opportunity. With a …

Scenes From Tim Scott’s Latest Fundraiser…And why Showing Up is Fifty Percent of the Battle [Picture Dump]
  14 Jun 2012     12:01 am      Susannah Fleetwood

[Congressman Tim Scott with my son, Jackson.]
This past Sunday afternoon, my husband Chris, my son Jackson and I attended Tim Scott’s latest fundraiser in Charleston, South Carolina. I gotta admit, it was a surreal experience.

[(R to L) Me, Congressman Scott holding my son, Jackson, and my husband, Chris.]

[Congressman Scott, Jackson and me.]

Why was it so surreal? Well, two years ago, I took the initiative and did a lot of blogging on Congressman Scott’s behalf when he began his run for congress. (I even covered his birthday …

National Blogger Going Dark Day – Speak Up For Free Speech!
  8 Jun 2012     8:00 am      William Teach

Ace at Ace of Spades has stated that his site will go dark today in order to stand up for Free Speech regarding the acts, SWATing and lawfare, performed against bloggers who have exposed Brett Kimberlin (aka The Speedway Bomber) and his associates. Like Michelle Malkin and John Hawkins, I’m not good at shutting up. The whole reason I started this blog way back in July 2004 was because I had things on my mind that I wanted to write about, whether anyone read it or not. It was cathartic. …

If You’re Going to Play the Game of Politics, Play to Win
  31 May 2012     12:16 am      Susannah Fleetwood

Last week, Meghan McCain–who, for better or worse, has become a player in the game of politics–went on Al Sharpton’s unwatchable show on MSNBC (which is most famous for being mocked on SNL) and stated the following with regard to Michelle Malkin and the late Andrew Breitbart:
I really don’t understand the popularity of Michelle Malkin and Andrew Breitbart who exacerbate people’s fears.
(The video of this exchange is below.)

Shrug. My first impression of the above exchange was that it was kind of a nothing burger. If a tree falls …

Arizona to Ban “Annoying” Behavior on the Internet
  4 Apr 2012     1:51 pm      Rachel Alexander

You and I may not use profanity in our Facebook posts, but what about that crazy relative who puts up the funniest posts that sometimes cross the line? Almost no one approves of swearing, but with the exception of broadcasting during daytime TV and radio, it is not illegal. Now new legislation inArizonawould effectively make swearing on the internet a crime.
 
Sponsored by Democrats and liberal Republicans, Arizona House Bill 2549 passed both the House and Senate almost unanimously last week, and has gone back to the House for a minor …

Americans with Disabilities Act Necessity: Conservative, White, Male Bloggers NEED a Federal Subsidy
  10 Mar 2012     3:34 pm      Warner Todd Huston

OK, you people, I am sick and tied of this. The Americans with Disabilities Act is NOT being fairly applied. That’s right. You read that headline correctly. Conservative, white, male bloggers NEED a hand from Washington. In fact, I’d say we have a right to it. We are being discriminated against even from those on our own side. It’s time for redress. I DEMAND a handout.
For years I’ve been wondering why the heck few of us white, male, bloggers ever make it big. Why aren’t there ever any white, …

Stupid Internet Meme of the Week: Santorum’s ‘Rough’ Handshake With Ron Paul Outrage
  24 Feb 2012     12:58 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Buzzfeed was the first to indulge it’s inner gossip — well, maybe its outer gossip since that is all that site is; gossip. Anyway, the stupid story of the day is based on the hearty handshake that Rick Santorum gave Ron Paul after Wednesday’s debates. Paul’s fans took offense at the handshake for some idiotic reason and now it is the “thing” to talk about it.
First, let’s go to the video, shall we?

As Buzzers has it:

Rick Santorum topped off a disappointing debate performance with an oddly enthusiastic handshake with …

Obama’s Budget: More Tax, Borrow and Spend
  13 Feb 2012     5:57 pm      Michael Fell

The White House presented its 2012 budget Monday. A $3.8 trillion proposal which includes $1.43 trillion in new taxes on households whose incomes meet or exceed $250,000 (note: this is the new “progressive” definition of millionaires and billionaires), a fourth straight year of $1 trillion-plus deficit spending (which will require yet more borrowing), and new mandatory spending intended for the Education and Energy Departments.

As has been the case for the past three years, the White House pays lip service to calls for reduced spending. There are no efforts made to …

My Video At Heart of Controversy in Florida House Race
  12 Dec 2011     12:41 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Apparently, a video I made in Denver is at the heart of a controversy in a race for the House of Representatives in Florida.
While at Blogcon 2011 I had the opportunity to interview Karen Harrington, a Republican candidate for the 20th District House seat now held by Debbie Wasserman Schultz — who is also the Chairman of the Democrat National Committee. I made a video of that short interview as I have so many other candidates.
In our interview Harrington, recently endorsed by GOP Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, went through some …

The 40 Best Conservative Blogs For 2011 (Version 4.0)
  12 Dec 2011     8:40 am      John Hawkins

It’s time for me to rank my favorite blogs for the 4th quarter of 2011.
Do keep in mind that as the quarter has progressed, some blogs have, of course, moved up and others have dropped, based on how often I visit them, how much I like what I see when I get there, how often the blogs are updated, etc., etc. Also, as per usual, do keep in mind that this sort of list changes frequently over time based on a variety of factors. So if a blog didn’t get …
