Poll: Most Republicans Agree with the Tea Party

Poll: Most Republicans Agree with the Tea Party

Pew Research has a new poll out reminding Americans once again that they are supposed to follow the herd and view the Tea Party negatively because that’s what all smart people do, after all. Not a whole lot of new ground covered here–just the usual cycle from the “mainstream” media of “Let’s vilify the Tea Party, then run a poll to see how well our propaganda campaign worked”–but there are some important lessons to be learned, buried in the material.

Stace Nelson: Candidate for U.S. Senate from South Dakota

Stace Nelson for U.S. Senate Releases Financial Report

U.S. Senate Candidate Stace Nelson released his third quarter financial report for the campaign today, noting that he had raised $43,717 and that based on those results, if he had been in the race as long as competitors Larry Rhoden and Annette Bosworth, he would have raised more than either of them in the same time period.

Republican Establishment Pushing for a Third Party

Republican Establishment Pushing for a Third Party

You know it’s true. The liberal GOP establishment is completely ashamed of the conservatives and Tea Party people that form its base and still believe in the party’s documented values and priorities. If they are in fact trying to drive real Republicans out of the GOP with this Leftward swing (that we sometimes write off as asinine stupidity on the part of the leadership), then it could accurately be stated…

Republicans Embracing Liberal Agenda Brings More Third Party Calls

Republicans Embracing Liberal Agenda Brings More Third Party Calls

You know it’s getting bad for the “Republican” Party when Sean Hannity says it may be time for a third party; Hannity, after all, has defended the RINOs in the last couple of years far more than I’m comfortable with. Hannity had Sarah Palin on his show, and both agreed that the “Republican” establishment has been joining the Democrats and helping them advance the liberal agenda and hinder the conservative agenda.

When Government Uses Names to Hurt

When Government Uses Names to Hurt

This past week White House Adviser Dan Pfeiffer compared Tea Party Republicans to, “people with a bomb strapped to their chest.” Why does this matter? It matters because this Administration has the power to enforce law enforcement action against those they deem to be terrorists, and by characterizing their political opponents in this manner it is no longer just words, it is a not so veiled threat.

John Boehner

House Republicans Thwart RINO Boehner’s Sellout

Though the U.S. House “leader” Speaker Boehner is eager to sell out the American people on the altar of ObamaCare and more runaway spending, it seems that at least some Republicans in the House understand what’s at stake–and aren’t willing to go-along-to-get-along.

Photos: National Holocaust Museum

Photos: National Holocaust Museum

These are a few photos from my family’s recent visit to Washington D.C. and the National Holocaust Museum. I wasn’t able to take too many pictures (photography is not allowed in most of the museum…and most of the photos involve some of the most depraved cruelty imaginable), but I did get a couple on the outside, and they allowed me a few photos in the Hall of Remembrance.

The Tea Party: Smarter Than You Thought

The Tea Party: Smarter Than You Thought

William A. Galston has an interesting article at the Wall Street Journal. While I’m dubious of some of his implied conclusions, he cites some telling statistics about the Tea Party movement based on a New York Times survey. None of this is really a surprise to me, having been a Tea Party founder and organizer since the beginning, but it is notable that a Leftist publication like the New York Times actually managed to be so transparent and so accurate about a group that it and its primary constituency loath.
