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

The Dodd-Frank-Dinsdale Act of 2010

There’s a saying about politics and law making that if you’re not at the table you’re on the menu. In other words, if you’re a businessman and a big government liberal threatens your industry, cozy up to him to try to minimize the damage. The alternative is to take a principled stand and oppose the big government scheme for the bad policy it is. This is the dilemma bankers in Nebraska faced when confronting Dodd-Frank in 2010 according to articles from Nebraska Watch and American Banker. Guess which side Nebraska Senate primary candidate Sid Dinsdale fell on?  From Nebraska Watch May 12, 2014 5:23 AM PT

Obama's War on Workers

The Obama Administration wants to eliminate jobs and make more people dependent on the government.  There simply isn't any other way to put it.  They have turned their sites on for-profit, non-traditional colleges, like trade schools and continuing-ed programs for those who are seeking additional skills or training in a competitive job market.  From Derek Hunter at Townhall: May 8, 2014 12:20 PM PT

Shane Osborn is a Bad Friend

The World-Herald reported that television station KETV in Omaha declined to run a 60 Plus Association ad featuring retired service members who disapprove of Osborn because he created and circulated a fake memo. KETV refused to air the ad after a (likely empty) threat of lawsuit by the Osborn campaign.  Breitbart's Frances Martel has more on how this is playing out here. May 7, 2014 10:09 AM PT
