otp ted cruz

Oregon Tea Party Endorses Ted Cruz for President in 2016. The Oregon Tea Party PAC has made a foray into presidential politics in the all important 2016 election cycle.

NETU-protest-620x412

A union of government tax collectors that opposes small-government Conservatives & anti-tax Tea Parties–and Obama doesn’t want a special prosecutor…Coincidence? [cross posted from RedState: LaborUnionReport] At a protest in downtown Manhattan last week, a group of federal workers chanted: “Hey, hey, ho, ho, sequestration has got to go!” Where do the anti-sequester, federal government workers-turned-protestors […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 — […]

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 […]

Keep the Faith

Keep the Faith Header

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 […]

Have Faith

Have Faith

Today is Election Day! A day to exercise out patriotic and civil duty, a day to remember the past while we decide the future. It’s also a day to have some faith. But doesn’t mean staying at home and “having faith” things will all work out. Faith is putting action to your belief. Take a […]

There Are Two Paths

There Are Two Paths

My friend Ben Howe hits it out of the park again.

In the words of Andrew Breitbart, “There are two paths,” which we must choose between in this election.

Which path will we choose? Will we choose individual freedom and the free market? Or will we choose socialism and a culture that expects government to take care of it? These are not pastel colors or shades of gray. These are two distinctly different choices with two distinct destinations.

  • A Thousand Nights of Trump January 22, 2017
    Chuck Todd introducing 3 Doors Down on MSNBC must qualify as the single whitest act in the history of creation. It is difficult to imagine how Nature herself did not revolt by raising up the ghost of Percy Sledge. As much as I would like to turn away from the television, I find that I […]

  • InterludeMost Europeans Don’t Ride Transit Either January 20, 2017
    Contrary to popular belief, Europeans don’t ride transit a lot more than Americans. In fact, most rarely use transit. Conventional wisdom holds that Americans drive cars while Europeans ride transit and intercity trains. In fact, while there are some differences in travel habits, differences in rail and bus travel are a lot smaller than most […]
  • Reason #8 Most Americans Don’t Ride TransitLife Is Complicated January 19, 2017
    Transit works best going from point A to point B if you happen to be near point A and want to get to point B. Transit doesn’t work well for trip chaining, going from point A to point B via points C, D, and E. Because life is complicated and people don’t want to spend […]
  • Reason #7 Most Americans Don’t Ride TransitIt Doesn’t Carry Freight January 18, 2017
    Carrying large packages, suitcases, or shopping bags on transit is awkward at best and impossible at worst. Anyone who expects to travel with such cargo, even if only some of the time, will do best with a car. In 2007, Ikea opened its first store in Portland. It is 280,000 square feet, has around a […]
