Almost since its founding in the late 1850’s, the Republican Party has been plagued by internal strife. It’s a party of moral righteousness (and, often, self-righteousness) that takes founding principles very, very [...]

You may recall the Oregon businessman who took offense to Obama’s “You didn’t build that” quote and put a large sign in his shop window stating, “Hey Obama, I built my business by myself, you lousy incompetent excuse for a President.”
Provocative, to be sure. But understandable, given this President’s [...]
If there ever was a time to start a movement, that time has come. Did we really think that our everlasting freedom would be won by a few funny tweets, a handful of hashtag hijacks, and a charismatic duo in Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan? To believe that freedom could be won so easily does a disservice to the immense worth of freedom, and also a d [...]

Will Ferrell will grovel on a billiards table, wearing a lounge suit made from the finest threads, as long as you agree to vote for Barack Obama.
Seriously, he’ll make you a meal of roast flamingo and seared perch. He’ll bungee jump from the Golden Gate Bridge wearing nothing but an ill-fitting trash bag. He’ll eat… [...]

The New York Post reports:
The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign [...]

This weekend, U.S. forces airdropped medical supplies, weapons and ammunition to Kurds outside the city to fight ISIS.

The White House is trying to connect with Millennials using Sesame Street tactics. Democrats sent out an email listing their accomplishments for generation Y using emoijis and “hip” TV references. Unfortunately, this probably won’t bring out the youth vote. This generation isn’t interested in the midterms, and cares more about the economy than infographics.
1) The word used to summarize continued nuclear talks between the U.S. and Iran is “progress” which came from reports by each party. Sec. of State John Kerry met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif yesterday. There is little discussion on what that progress might be. The deadline for the talks is late November. […]
