6 Nov 2012 2:59 am John Hawkins
* Since Friday of last week, I’ve been in Las Vegas, Nevada working with Dustin Stockton.com and Western Representation PAC, both of which have been doing a final get-out-the-vote push to try to get the GOP over-the-top in the state.
Today, I’m still in Vegas, but I’m covering the election for The Tea Party News Network. You’ll be able to watch a live feed of our broadcast right here and follow our tweets at the hashtag #TeaPartyVotes.

Tonight at 9 PM EST, there will be a GOP debate in Iowa. I will be liveblogging. So, when you turn on the TV to watch the debate, head over to RWN and chip in your two cents in the comments section while you’re watching.
9:02: Here. We. Go.
9:02. You politicians, who speak in nothing but talking points, can you put aside the talking points? Dumb opener.
9:03: Michele Bachmann is sticking with her, “We shouldn’t have raised the debt ceiling at all” position, which appeals to certain people, but is a …

Liveblogging Obama’s Libya Speech At 7:30 PM EST
28 Mar 2011 7:28 am John Hawkins
Tonight at 7:30 PM EST, I’ll be liveblogging Obama’s speech on his ill-thought-out Libyan adventure. So, rather than watch the incoherence and scream at the TV alone, head on over to RWN, where you can commiserate with other people about what an idiot we have in the White House.
7:31. Here we go.
7:32: Oh, now we’ve “led” the effort in Libya — and it’s not a good sign when you have to explain why this “matters to us.”
7:33: Our interests are at stake in Libya? That’s not what Robert Gates said.
Axelrod: The GOP Blocks Everything done To Help Recession
4 Sep 2010 4:58 pm Heather Bachman
While the possibility of yet another stimulus package stood in the wings, Senior White House Advisor David Axelrod recently discussed his conservative opponents involvement in the attempt to revive the nation our of the current recession as attempts “to block” every effort to repair the issues. Obviously not able to make any examples, yet another statement from the White House has more holes than ever thought possible.
Aside from attempting to restrict the now $862 billion stimulus and its detrimental affects such as a 9.5 percent and rising unemployment rate, …
A Glenn Beck Rally and Our Current Culture of Bias
4 Sep 2010 12:07 pm Heather Bachman
It is not news to hear that we are in an environment of bias which is fueled by our mainstream media. It is not even news when we hear that people who speak truth are pushed down by this sector. However, a recent situation has forced us to not only see the strength of this realization but also the danger. Can a Glenn Beck rally turn the tide?
Recently, Glenn Beck carried out a rally to influence and enhance the honor of this nation in one of its most tumultuous times since the …
Why are We Suprised?
21 Jul 2010 11:25 am Heather Bachman
Just around MemoGate I was an aspiring reporter who was prepping for a career in investigative journalism. In my spare time, I had a political Internet radio program called The Conservative Watchdog. This was the only place I allowed my political views to surface, especially as a consistent stringer reporter and intern. While at a New York Conference, I raised my hand to ask about my program and how it could assist me in some way through political reporting, the responding “Journalism Expert” stated: “You could always work for Fox …
Talk about Biting the Hand that Fed You: Obama’s Attack on America’s Students
24 Jun 2010 2:26 pm Heather Bachman
Whether we like to actually admit it, the youth of our nation voted en masse for President Barack Obama. Exit polls indicate he won as much as 66% of voters under 30 years old. Enchanted by the word “change” entering into the prospective definition of their future, Obama calmed this worried, young sector of society and made them believe they would be safe with him.
After carefully waiting, watching him travel the world and have dinner with celebrities, finally a piece of legislation was announced: ObamaCare. While the signed …
Obama Knew all and did Nothing….
21 Jun 2010 3:34 pm Heather Bachman
From day one of the spill, we have seen that it has left more than tragedy and waste in its path but also a magnifying of exactly what our White House holds: Zero real leadership and continuous degradation of the U.S. Constitution. While many political experts have said time and time again that our Commander is no more a leader than Kim Jong-il is a fan of freedom, the American people are experiencing this first hand.
Before the spill, we saw ourselves with a President who, knowing that there were …
Liveblogging The Obamatrina Address Starting At 8 PM
15 Jun 2010 7:47 pm John Hawkins
7:46: Obama speaks to the nation in 14 minutes. Grab the popcorn, tune up your BS meters, and hold your wallets tight.
8:00: I am watching MSNBC for the liveblog so I can learn how this is what Lincoln would have said about a massive oil spill in the gulf.
8:01: Key words to remember as you watch this: “Never let a crisis go to waste.”
8:03: In the coming weeks and days, we should capture 90% of the oil.
8:03: This is like an epidemic we will be fighting for months and years. …
Andrew Breitbart Thinks the MSM… Well, Sucks
20 Feb 2010 3:19 pm Sharon Soon
It may sound irreverent, but thank God for Andrew Breitbart. I mean it.
For so long I’ve agonized over the single one great reason that has allowed liberals to deceive the American public, lying about themselves and about us: the liberal media, vile, vindictive, and until recently, largely unreigned.
Just as Breibart says, the MSM has been employing “street thuggery” for years, and they’ve gotten away with it. They, along with liberal academia, have controlled what the public sees, hears, and thinks. Without the media, even the loudest voice, …
Rick Santorum: I Was Wrong About Specter
20 Feb 2010 1:11 pm Sharon Soon
In case I haven’t mentioned this a hundred times before, Rick Santorum is my favorite senator. From the war on terrorism – his more recent focus – to values to the cultural plagues of our society, I really believe he has full depth of understanding; even more significant is that he’s a politician who puts his principles before power and popularity.
Today, spent the majority of this time discussing the war on terror, which he believes the be America’s greatest threat and should be our greatest focus, for …
Liveblog Of Obama’s Speech
27 Jan 2010 10:30 pm John Hawkins
I was liveblogging Obama’s speech on Twitter as part of a feed that CBS was running on their website. Since I’m done, I thought I’d go ahead and report it here.
* Let me get started early: Obama, you lie!!!
* Has any President every walked out and said, “The State of the Union is…aw, who am I kidding. Run while you still can!!!”
* I love Joe Biden’s earnest nodding in the background. It may be his biggest contribution as VP.
* No, we didn’t “all” hate the bank bailout. We didn’t want …
Live Video Blogging the SOTU!
27 Jan 2010 9:01 pm Tabitha Hale
Melissa Clouthier and I are rocking the video blogging – sorry about my delay. It’s ustream’s fault.
Live TV : Ustream
9:54 – I had some seriously unbelievable technical issues. Like, my whole neighborhood was powerless so I apologize.
9:58 – Wow. Did he really just attack the Supreme Court? Had anyone ever gone after the SCOTUS like that?
10:05 – If Obama REALLY wanted a bipartisan effort, he’d quit addressing the Republican and Democratic parties and start addressing the US Congress.
10:07 – “As a candidate I promised that I would end this war. …
Live Blogging – Tweeting – U-Streaming (I hope) The SOTU With A Twist Of Lime
27 Jan 2010 7:20 pm Melissa Clouthier
We watch so you don’t have to, but I strongly encourage drinking with us and commenting here. Also, if we can make it work, Tab Hale will be doing a simulcast and for sure live blogging on Right Wing News. She’s a braver soul, so if we make this video stuff work, it will be her win, most likely.
I’ll try embedding the code for the U-stream. This is new to me. We’ll see how it goes.
Hawkins will be live Tweeting for CBS news, I think. Here’s the info:
His tweets, …
Liveblogging Obama’s Speech On Afghanistan At 8 PM EST
1 Dec 2009 8:00 pm John Hawkins
Tonight at 8 PM EST, I’ll be liveblogging Obama’s speech on Afghanistan. So, if you’re watching, make sure to head over to RWN, refresh to read the real time commentary, and chip in your two cents in the comments section.
7:25: Supposedly, Obama is going to set up a “timeline” in this speech. That was a dumb, politically motivated idea in Iraq and it would be even dumber in Afghanistan because it lets the bad guys know exactly what you’re going to do. If they know all they have to do …
Fort Hood Massacre Liveblogging
5 Nov 2009 7:19 pm John Hawkins
* I’m going to update this semi-regularly for the next couple of hours. At the moment, information is surprisingly not-so-surprisingly sketchy. Often times, you get conflicting information about what happened in the immediate aftermath of an event like this.
So far, I’ve heard, there are two key pieces of data that I’m hearing conflicting data on:
* Was there one shooter or three shooters?
* Some sources are saying the one confirmed shooter, Malik Nadal Hasan, was a newly converted Muslim, while there are denials that is the case from other quarters. …
