Consensus: “The process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values, and policies in search of something in which no one believes, but to which no one objects; the process of avoiding the very issues that have to be solved, merely because you cannot get agreement on the way ahead. What great cause would have been fought and won under the banner: ‘I stand for consensus?’ — Margaret Thatcher

FRC Issues Inaccurate, Anti-Conservative Voter Guide

Bob Ellis

The Family Research Council, a pro-family organization I have supported for at least 20 years, emailed a South Dakota Voter Guide to their constituency in South Dakota Friday. While I would normally consider this a good thing, I was gravely disappointed in the voter guide because it misrepresented Mike Rounds' position on the issues.


South Dakota EB-5: Show Me the Money

Bob Ellis

David North at the Center for Immigration Studies has a new insightful article on how the "cash for visas" EB-5 program was handled in South Dakota. It seems someone in South Dakota was making a cash haul, especially compared to what goes on in other states.


Gov. Daugaard Earns ‘C’ in Fiscal Policy

Bob Ellis

The Cato Institute has released its latest Fiscal Policy Report Card on America's Governors. The grade is based on seven items: two spending, one revenue, and four based on tax rates. Governors who cut taxes and spending most received an "A" and those who increased taxes and spending most received an "F".

Mike Rounds Rated ‘Somewhat Conservative’

Bob Ellis

Well, that's a ringing endorsement if I've ever heard one. "Somewhat conservative" is how, linked in at the South Dakota Family Policy Council, rated the establishment-bought GOP candidate Mike Rounds. As someone I really look up to once said, I'd rather a person be either hot or cold.

Custer State Park Buffalo Roundup

Bob Ellis

My family and I went down to Custer State Park for the annual Buffalo Roundup today. As you can see from the pictures, there were a lot of people there, and the line of traffic was long for getting into the area. Though the event went quickly, it was a unique and worthwhile experience to see a herd of buffalo rounded up right in front of you.

Crony ‘Capitalism’ Strikes Tesla

Tom Toth

Tesla Motors, the American car maker created in 2003 by “engineers who set out to prove that electric vehicles could be awesome,” has been banned from opening stores in Michigan to advertise and sell its vehicles.


How’s Romans 13 Working, Pastor?

Dave Daubenmire

I guess I don't understand all the hubbub. Why are Houston's pastors objecting to turning over their sermons to the government? Haven't they told all of us to “obey the authorities?” Doesn't Romans 13 demand that we obey un-Godly government?


What if Republicans DO Get Control of Congress?

David Pepe

As the 2014 midterm elections heat up... expect the Left and the Main Stream Media to do whatever it takes to secure a leftist socialist progressive Democratic win and keep its lawless, bulldozer "a" rolling. Nothing will be beneath them as they use any lawless means to accomplishing this goal. These will seek to incite and stir up the rage of the masses of socially, subjective, lawless government dependents, godless women and the majority of African Americans who have been oppressed by white liberals policies for decades.


Honoring the One True God

David Whitney

It is now beyond question that Christianity is under direct assault in the culture war. “The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity to Annise Parker, the city’s first openly daughter of Sodom mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.”


Righteous Anger and Carnal Destruction

A.J. Castellitto

Dark forces are reigning and winning. But are they? I guess it's all a matter of where we stand. Maybe, we should take a cold, hard look where that is exactly. How firm is our foundation? Does our faith lie in a religious institution?


"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
