The Battle For The Soul Of The Republican Party

350px-andrew-breitbart-edit

  [5440 note: this is an adaptation of a presentation given by the author at the TechRoanoke Conference in Bellevue, WA, June 2014] There is a battle on for the soul of the GOP. But to clarify, I’m NOT going to be talking about the 800lb gorilla in the room. The factional infighting, the purity […]

You’ll Never Believe Where Saba Ahmed Showed Up

1saba

On Monday, June 16, the Washington DC press got a glimpse of Saba Ahmed, and were all too eager to provide her the platform she craves. Conservatives in the Pacific Northwest are quite familiar with her tactics to distort and twist conservative messages, but she’s found new fertile ground as she’s relocated. Given the headlines […]

Guest Post: “RINO” vs. “Moderate Republican” | JSL Consulting

Northern_Spotted_Owl.USFWS-thumb

My buddy John LaRosa has a compelling new post at his blog: “RINO” vs. “Moderate Republican” | JSL Consulting.   In case you haven’t noticed, there is a battle going on, and I’m not talking about the “war on” poverty, drugs, illiteracy or terror. The conflict I’m talking about is taking place within the Republican Party. In […]

Give It Up, Legacy Media

Give It Up, Legacy Media

A good working definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, always expecting a different result. By that definition, the American legacy media are collectively nuts. Note to legacy media: it may be about time to consider shutting the hell up. Let’s face it – you’ve never been right; you’ve been drooling […]

Oregon Patriots Rally For Gun Rights

GunRallyDanSandini

On Jan 19th, thousands of patriots rallied for “Guns Across America” in state capitols all across the nation, including Salem, Oregon.  They came to voice opposition to the Obama administration’s shameless exploitation of the tragic murder of innocent school children in order to punish law-abiding citizens’  by restricting their gun rights – the same administration that […]

National Guard Conducts Terror Drill That Portrays ‘Disgruntled’ 2nd Amendment Supporters As The Attackers

M110727-A-2569T-021

So far, they’ve used Tea Partiers, Pro-lifers and Christian homeschoolers as the villains for these drills.  Now they’re implicating supporters of the 2nd Amendment as potential terrorists.  Are you starting to see a pattern here? WSAZ News reports: A dead science teacher, weapons of mass destruction, first responders in hazmat suits and the Ohio Army National Guard […]

5 Things You Can Do RIGHT NOW To Fight For Liberty

Sign up as a possible candidate for local office.  The next election is in May, when there will be several spots opening for school boards and other offices.  Many have gone uncontested in the past.  We need conservative candidates on all these boards! Become a Precinct Committee Person (PCP)and help us take over the GOP from the […]

Americans Can No Longer Afford Détente With The Socialist Left

PHO-10Mar22-213187

For decades after World War II, both parties followed an uneasy strategy of détente with the Soviet Union, trying to appease communist demands while appearing “reasonable.”   The Soviets played them for the suckers they were, increasingly demanding more accommodations as their strength and aggression grew. When Ronald Reagan burst onto the political scene, he threw détente out […]

Art Robinson announces bid for Oregon GOP chairmanship

44481_10151145908713581_1976291148_n

Awesome!  I honestly can’t think of anyone better! The Republican party in Oregon is currently run by an elitist “consultant class” of so-called “moderates” who continually water down conservative principles in the hopes of appearing more “centrist.”   It has cost them election after election, but they have refused to learn from their mistakes, preferring […]

Regarding Dick Armey | RedState

6183521218_0828fb1f62

For your consideration, from Erick Erickson: Regarding Dick Armey | RedState. This constant drip of stories about FreedomWorks is rather pathetic. So Dick Armey shows up with a gun toting security guard to launch a coup against FreedomWorks? OK. What’s telling is that Team Armey is doing a lot of talking to Mother Jones — […]

An Apology to Our Founding Fathers

Us_declaration_independence

    My buddy Laurin posted this note on Facebook today, and I found it compelling enough to repost. Dear Founding Fathers: I’m sorry that after all we have been through as a nation that we cannot see when something is wrong under our very eyes. I’m sorry that we have become so dependent on […]

Media Ignores Union Violence, White House Refuses To Condemn It

unionviolence

If Tea Partiers behaved like this, I guarantee Obama would have soundly condemned it and the footage would have been all over the news 24/7 for the next week. Instead, the media has done a nearly complete blackout: Last night, all the major television networks chose not to show footage of violent union members in […]

Boehner Declares War On Tea Party, Purges Fiscal Conservatives From House Committees

Screen-Shot-2012-10-03-at-9.51.00-AM-620x390

It appears John Boehner doesn’t want fiscal conservatives anywhere near positions of power where they can challenge his compromises with the enemy. Francesca Chambers reports at Red Alert Politics: The fissure between the GOP establishment and Tea Party members in Congress blew wide open Monday evening when conservative members of Congress were suddenly removed from […]

Is This The Beginning Of A Republican Party Split?

who knew

We may be looking at the beginning of a party split. Tea Partiers are fed up and dumping the party in droves, going unaffiliated, Independent, Constitution party or Libertarian.  We can’t accomplish anything if we’re fractured all over the place.   At some point the only way to bring back cohesion may be to start an […]

On His Way Out The Door: Adams Rubs Elbows With Racist

mubarak_adams_cropped_highlighted_square

Dateline Portland Oregon, November 16, 2012:  It’s as if his trist with Beau Breedlove, lying to his constituents to cover it up, and presiding over Occupy Portland‘s $2M+ violent destruction of the downtown area wasn’t enough.  Finishing up his tour as Mayor, Sam Adams has apparently decided that rubbing elbows with racists is the right way […]

  • Have Democrats Pulled Too Far Left? May 28, 2015
    The Obama years have been politically good for Mr. Obama; they have been disastrous for his party. In the last two decades the Democratic Party has moved substantially further to the left than the Republican Party has shifted to the right.

  • Inequality Is More About Successful Firms Than Successful People May 28, 2015
    New research is suggesting that inequality is not driven by executives grabbing more income at the expense of workers within their companies. Instead, it is driven by some companies having higher average income than others. A lesson from this research is that inequality is unlikely to be solved through policies that ensure that the gains […]
  • To Protect Our Climate, Stop Purchasing Coal May 28, 2015
    Coal-fired electricity is responsible for about 80 percent of carbon pollution from our state’s electricity sector, and the Colstrip power plant in Montana is one of the most-polluting plants in the American West. The takeaway is clear: We need to help Colstrip’s main owner, Puget Sound Energy, protect Washington customers from Colstrip’s costs, set an […]

  • Low-Speed, Infrequent Rail May 28, 2015
    Quentin Kopp, who once chaired the California High-Speed Rail Authority and led the effort to persuade voters to pass the 2008 law authorizing its construction, is speaking out against the project as currently planned. To succeed, he says, high-speed rail needs to run on dedicated tracks at high speeds and frequencies. Instead, the current plan […]
  • Defining Suburbs May 27, 2015
    Based on surveys asking people whether they thought the lived in urban, suburban, or rural ares, Trulia economist Jed Kolko has defined the borderline between urban and suburban as 2,213 households per square mile (slightly less than 3.5 per acre), while the line between suburban and rural is 102 households per square mile (about 1 […]
  • Amtrak & Innumerate Liberals May 26, 2015
    A number of articles in National Review last week supported the Antiplanner’s view that more infrastructure spending wouldn’t have prevented the May 12 Amtrak crash in Philadelphia. Rich Lowry says Amtrak is a huge waste that carries so few passengers that it is “a rounding error of American transportation.” John Fund shows that Congressional budget […]
