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

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.

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 […]

mubarak_adams_cropped_highlighted_square

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

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.

Are You Whittemore Tough?

Are You Whittemore Tough?
