Gingrich Nails Media Hypocrisy Over Sandra Fluke With a Railroad Spike

Bob Ellis

If only Newt Gingrich were more consistently conservative, dang I'd love to back him for president! As he is so good at, once again he nails the hypocrisy of the "mainstream" media and the rest of the Left to the wall with a railroad spike. He points out all the things the media doesn't want to talk about, like President Obama's apology to our enemies while throwing our troops under the bus of Islamic extremism, Obama's defense of infanticide, and the fact that RomneyCare perpetrates an assault on religious freedom just like ObamaCare.

Church and State Coming Back Together

Bob Ellis

Some interesting developments are afoot in the 2012 presidential election...and the Left probably doesn't like most of them--and those they do like, the probably aren't happy that anyone noticed. It was no surprise to hear Barack Obama reach out to liberal black churches to support his campaign (though his call fro "congregation captains" was remarkable). But Newt Gingrich recently spoke from the pulpit of a Georgia church, and openly condemned Obama's anti-freedom and anti-Christian policies. Freedom is beginning to ring again in America's churches.

Gingrich Slams Obama, Media Bias Double Standard

Bob Ellis

I can't support Newt Gingrich for president with a wishy-washy record like his, but he deserves credit where credit is due. He is very good at keeping the focus where it belongs (on President Obama, and on the media lapdogs who support him) and defending even his fellow Republican competitors in the face of the real and greater threat. He did so during the debate last night by exposing media hypocrisy over Rick Santorum's contraception opinions, and Barack Obama's support of infanticide.

A Guide to Identifying Real Conservatives

David Bozeman

The defining traits of conservative leadership are too varied and detailed for this limited space.  But as the GOP’s 2012 nominating process continues, a few pertinent points bear further examination, lest the voters be fooled by spin-meisters and charlatans.

A Bad Deal

Bob Ellis

Who has supported cap and trade global warming taxes, government bailouts, amnesty for illegal aliens, and government control of health care? Take a look and see. the answer might surprise you (they should have included Mitt "RomneyCare" Romney in this deck of cards, too).

Snakes in the grass, and more on the way!

William R. Mann

Well, well, well. Do we now see snakes in the grass? Some of you may not handle well what I am about to offer up, so fasten your seat belts please. It seems Mitt Romney wants to do to all of the states what he did with RomneyCare in his own state. Have all the RINOs now stepped out of the background at last and shown their true colors?

Waiting for an Anti-Newt

David Bozeman

As a political junkie, my biggest wish was always for someone to put elite-media commentators and debate moderators in their place.  Now that Juan Williams and John King have both been savaged by the agile tongue of the great anti-Romney, I solemnly ask — is it too late to take that wish back? Discourse that was meant to be Reagan-esque now sounds calculated and predictable.

The Drudge Distort

J. Matt Barber

You’re being manipulated. A well respected, highly influential news source has cast aside all journalistic integrity to shill for the liberal, GOP establishment candidate in this presidential race. The New York Times, you say? MSNBC? The Washington Post? No. We all gave up on those “progressive” rags a long time ago. Regrettably, the latest media outlet to assume a decidedly yellow hue during this heated primary cycle is the Drudge Report.

Fearing Newt Gingrich

J. Matt Barber

What do establishment Republicans and liberal Democrats have in common? They’ve long labored under a shared misconception: conservative candidates are unelectable. In 1980, conventional wisdom held that Ronald Reagan didn’t stand a chance against Jimmy Carter. The GOP leadership, the mainstream media and liberal politicos alike lined up against the Gipper in an attempt to derail his presidential campaign.

A Way Out for College Kids

Guest Author

American education is in trouble—that much seems to be a given. Our public schools and colleges are getting poor results, our young people are drowning in debt, new graduates can't find jobs, and our overall rankings in the world are pretty dismal. We are greatly in need of a transformation, but we need to think big, because the problem is huge.

Liberals in California Target Judges with Boy Scout Ties

Gina Miller

Give them an inch, and they’ll demand a mile. We warned you that the terrible decision by the Boy Scouts of America to allow openly homosexual boys into membership would only lead to further attacks against the organization by the militant homosexual Left. We were right, and the target is now judges who have ties to the Scouts.

The Rightful Remedy

Guest Author

Two hundred thirty years after the Founders won American independence from a tyrannical monarch, the inheritors of their estate are facing a hard reality: liberty is jealously defended or it is lost. As all three branches of the federal government exercise powers beyond those granted, our God-given rights are under sustained assault. The question is: what is the remedy?

"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
