Political Outreach is a Fickle Business for Liberals and Conservatives

There's always talk of outreach to independents and the "mushy middle," but what about people who just don't care about politics?  Or those who think politics don't affect their daily life?  How do we reach them?  An article in the Washington Post suggests that maybe conservatives shouldn't.

How Long Until Tim Howard Gets Tim Tebow'd?

I'm not a soccer fan and didn't pretend to be these last few weeks.  I am a fan of America though, so I rooted for our team and its break-out star, Tim Howard.  He's been making the media rounds, but an article in Huffington Post showcased a side that no other media outlet has.  Tim Howard is a committed Christian.

AZ Democrats Continue False Narrative About Scott Walker

Perhaps one of the most blatant media lies this month (though we still have a week to go) is the recycled news of the baseless investigations of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.  This primer on the media's smearing of Walker is worth reading.  From the article: Jun 24, 2014 11:19 AM PT

VA's Single Payer System is Pelosi's Goal for Everyone

Democrats claiming they want to "fix" Obamacare are not to be believed.  As Sean Noble of American Encore noted, their goal is single-payer.  They will paint Obamacare as a failure of a "free market" system and suggest single-payer is the solution.  What you're not hearing from the media is that the VA system is single-payer.  The VA is everyone's future if Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats have their way.  From Noble in Townhall: Jun 20, 2014 11:12 AM PT

Junk Science Babe Goes After Beer

Time and time again the Left falsely claims we're the ones who are "anti-science."  So, whenever I see a story about junk science, particularly, one pushed by the media I have to address it for its sheer stupidity. Unfortunately, the BuzzFeed-ification of science reporting is all too common.   Jun 17, 2014 9:28 AM PT

Another Reason Not to Support Transparency of Political Donations

This week on Tom Brokaw's nationally syndicated radio commentary, "An American Story," he suggested that there be a website that lists all campaign/political donors.  It's the latest in the phony calls for transparency from those on the Left and in the media.  It sounds good, but in the current climate of retaliation against conservatives it's disastrous.

The End of GOProud

I'll get a few things out of the way.  I was the Director of CPAC from 2006-2011.  I fought for GOProud's inclusion.  When they let me go in 2011, the board also voted to keep GOProud out.  Unfortunately, that didn't change in 2012, 2013 or 2014.  Later in 2011, I joined the GOProud board of directors.  I was then elected chairman in January 2012.  I decided to leave the board earlier this year because I didn't think I had anything to contribute given their new direction and activities.  Others also felt the same way and left the board.

Are We Faking Cultural Literacy?

I'm an avid non-Section A reader of the New York Times.  It really is a good little paper for everything not related to politics or policy. Jun 5, 2014 5:53 AM PT

Casting Your 2nd Vote

Truth be told, I've never been a big believer in boycotts.  But times could be changing.  The Left has made it their mission to integrate politics into every part of our lives.  The shows we watch, the restaurants where we eat, and the stores where we shop.  While I was content to enjoy my Chick-fil-a and Ben and Jerry's, the Left has decided that you can't enjoy a meal or a show without being bludgeoned over the head with the purveyor's views and why they're wrong.  Maybe they're right. Maybe the culture wars do begin with the pocketbook.  A new conservative organization and app thinks so.  From May 20, 2014 6:56 PM PT


Check out this video from American Encore and American Commitment.  Good stuff.  It's going to be a tough election for Democrats... as long as Republicans stay on message and hammer home on the Obamacare lie. May 20, 2014 1:10 PM PT

AZ Republican Primary Candidate 'Quibbling' with the Truth

In the Arizona Republican primary, several candidates are lining up to replace Gov. Jan Brewer.  One of them seems to be making national news for all the wrong reasons.  First time candidate Christine Jones has a problem with telling the truth about her resume.  From Alex Pappas at The Daily Caller: May 19, 2014 8:10 AM PT
