    After NBC's "Meet The Press" host David Gregory ran an anti-ObamaCare ad targeting Sen. Mark Pryor from Arkansas featuring a couple with a southern accents questioning the confusing nature of the Affordable Care Act, Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker objected to Americans for Prosperity using people with southern accents in political ads running in Arkansas: "I think you could find someone who doesn't have a southern accent who is confused by this act," Parker said. "We always seem to find the character who seems a little countrified, who can't just fathom this. You know there there are plenty of smart...

    Early today Clint Tarver, known as “The Hot Dog Guy” here in Lansing had his business attacked and destroyed by out of line and out of control protesters near the Capitol. Everyone who has passed the hot dog cart knows what a kind and caring individual Clint is. He never fails to bestow a smile or friendly greeting. In no way [did] he provoke this attack, nor any of the behavior displayed toward him. Mr. Tarver has been operating his food businesses since 1990 in the Lansing area. He had been hired by Americans for Prosperity to cater their tent...

    Americans for Prosperity, the Tea Party organization backed by the Koch brothers, is set to begin a $25 million advertising assault aimed at President Obama, its largest effort to date. The ad takes a relatively straightforward approach, avoiding hyperbole or over-the-top negativity. An image of the national debt clock appears on screen for much of the ad, ticking ever higher. It ends with Mr. Obama's words, "If I don't have this done in three years, then there's going to be a one-term proposition."

    FOX News analyst and CBN News Chief Political Correspondent David Brody told the FOX News Sunday panel today the Wisconsin recall vote this week will be a clear defeat for unions. Brody praised the Tea Party, FreedomWorks, AFP and others for their outstanding work in the state. “It’s a huge defeat for unions clearly. I think what you’re seeing here is what Scott Walker, Paul Ryan and others, you’re seeing this word courage come up a lot. That they had the courage to take on the tough problems… I got to tell you, I think the unreported story here is...
  • PICKET: (video) Occupy protesters attempt to bust into DC event

    Occupy DC protesters attempted to bust into the Washington DC Convention Center on Friday night, where an Americans for Prosperity dinner was taking place. Protesters aimed their ire at AFP donors Charles and David Koch throughout the night. Interestingly, David walked through the crowd of protesters with friends and associates of his and went completely unnoticed by the Occupy DC crowd. I captured video of a throng of protesters trying to muscle past security at the DC Convention Center. The Daily Caller's Michelle Fields was one of the journalists covering the melee outside of the doors, who later reported that...

    Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is quietly courting the Tea Party as it becomes increasingly clear that the conservative grass-roots movement, which has stubbornly refused to embrace him, represents a bigger threat to Romney's quest for his party's nomination than any of his rivals. Less than two months before the Iowa caucuses, Romney is skipping a major Iowa event Friday -- where every other GOP hopeful will be -- to deliver a keynote speech on fiscal policy to the conservative advocacy group Americans for Prosperity. Americans for Prosperity is led by billionaire Republican donor David Koch, whose endorsement Romney seeks....

    Mainstream America is finally getting to know the billionaire brothers backing the libertarian movement, thanks to a pair of dueling profiles in New York and The New Yorker. Now that we've heard about their charitable giving, David's 240-foot mega-yacht and role as patrons of the Tea Party movement, it's time to ask a more serious question: How libertarian are they? The short answer...not very.Charles and David Koch, the secretive billionaire brothers who own Koch Industries, the largest private oil company in America, have spent millions bankrolling free-market think tanks and pro-business politicians in order, as David Koch has put it,...

    **If we don't act on this NOW, then God help us all** THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION now wants to takeover, or "regulate," the internet. And it looks like they're well on their way to doing just that. As we all know, there is nothing wrong with the internet. The internet seems to be developing and growing just fine, thank you, very much. But Obama sees it much differently. Americans for Prosperity has launched an ad campaign to alert those Americans who are not yet aware of another government intrusion into the private sector--the internet. AFP has a petition for you to...

    Now Magazine ^ | Wait, these are the "Hitler Youth" Christopher Monckton is talking about? | Alice Klein
    Climate deniers are on the offensive, even here. Check out the press release to see the way these guys operate. In the advisory, they call themselves the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) and they are inviting the press to an International Climate Eco-Summit (ICE 2009). Sounds so smooth. Meanwhile tomorrow's event comes after another one organized by the Americans for Prosperity just yesterday where a group of fifty U.S. clean energy youth activists stormed the stage in Copenhagen during a live webcast also featuring endless climate crisis denier Christopher Monckton. He goes buck. Here's the video (Monckton spills the...
