In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution. — Thomas Jefferson

Mike Rounds Supporters Continue to Play ‘Race Card’ Against Conservatives

Bob Ellis

I see the head liar at the unofficial Mike Rounds campaign blog (aka "South Dakota War on Conservatives" aka "South Dakota War College") has once again dragged out the favorite play of liberals: the "race card." The race card never needs proof, and is relied on to stand even in the face of contradictory evidence. It's long been a favorite of liberals in the Democrat Party, and has now become a favorite of liberals in the "Republican" Party.


Gordon Howie: Here, There, Everywhere

Bob Ellis

Those Gordon Howie for U.S. Senate signs just keep cropping up everywhere I go! It's amazing to witness the ardor so many people have for this conservative independent candidate, even at a time still deep in summer when most people's minds are as far away as possible from political campaigns.

Gordon Howie for U.S. Senate signs continue to just keep popping up everywhere you go. I encountered this sight just off Omaha Street in Rapid City today. Gordon Howie--on the move, headed right!


Gordon Howie on Illegal Immigration Goes Viral

Bob Ellis

Gordon Howie, independent conservative candidate for U.S. Senate from South Dakota, recently released a video which spoofs " target="_blank">a video of Rep. Steve King getting ambushed by an illegal immigration activist with Senator Rand Paul making a quick exit. The video has quickly caught on, and is now being covered by national media outlets such as Politico, the Chicago Sun Times, and others.


Republicans Fight Conservatives Harder Than They Fight Democrats

Steve Deace

We have become a nation of two Americas, with two dramatically different value systems attempting to fly the same flag simultaneously. Similarly, there are now also two Republican Parties, each claiming the same branding but with two dramatically different visions.


In Praise of the Republican Party Establishment

Steve Deace

Friends, Americans, patriots — lend me your ears. For once I come not to bury the Republican Party Establishment but to praise it. That’s right, it is I, a man who has been excommunicated so many times by the GOP establishment I’ve lost count, who is now here to tell of their mighty deeds. Just as “only Nixon could go to China,” so must the waxing poetic of the GOP’s “heroic” exploits come from a malcontent like me.


Lawlessness Has a Cost, Mr. President

Tom Toth

Republicans have been gifted the opportunity to set themselves up for a landslide victory in the 2014 midterms, thanks exclusively to another one of Obama’s lawless pen and phone executive actions. Will the Republicans take their chance to go for the jugular and sweep the Democrats in the November elections?

Another Attack on Religious Liberty

Bob Ellis

Religious liberty continues to fall under attack from homosexual activists and their "useful idiots" in government. One of the latest incidents to be reported nationally is in New York, where a family farm is being forced to accommodate a counterfeit wedding for two homosexuals.


Family Reunion

David Whitney

One of the great differences between all the creatures God made on earth and mankind is the long period of dependency. Many creatures are up and out of the nest in a matter of a few months. Human offspring however remain dependent longer than any creatures of comparable size.

Disposing of Those with Down Syndrome

Ken Connor

In today's culture we are constantly cajoled about the need to concern ourselves with "niche interests" and to demonstrate acceptance for those who choose to live "outside the norm." Unless, that is, the different characteristic is Down syndrome.


Growing Opposition to Common Core

Rick Manning

Not since conservatives virtually deserted the battlefield over textbook content and curricula in the 1970s leading to the gradual acceptance of the legitimacy of a federal Department of Education, has the public revolted against education policy so completely. The unifying factor is the Obama Administration’s Common Core program that was sold to states as a means to receive federal education dollars.

To Cross Israel’s Rubicon

Victor Sharpe

A great alliance exists between two peoples who share principles of democracy, the rule of law, freedom of religion and speech, and human rights. That alliance and friendship between the American and Israeli people largely remains, exemplified by the support of Congress, despite the policies of the current administration.


"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
