    Jeb Bush’s likely presidential candidacy will face its first major test on Friday when he addresses a rowdy group of activists at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). It’s a critical moment for the former Florida governor as he looks to convince conservatives that he appeals to more than just the GOP establishment.

    Leo McNeil ^ | February 27, 2015 | Leo McNeil
    Scott Walker spoke to the folks at the CPAC convention yesterday. He looked Presidential, he looked like someone who could win. His best line was “we celebrate our independence from government not our dependence on it.” He defended the rights of the unborn, outright by noting that Wisconsin no longer funds Planned Parenthood and more subtlety by including the unborn as worthy of protection while he rattled off a number of other basic groups to be protected. If nothing else Walker will provide a stark contrast to the whiny liberalism of the GOP establishment’s candidate Jeb Bush. The GOP can...

    Arizona state Senator, Dr. Kelli Ward, added an amendment to a bill on restoration of civil rights.  The amendment would remove several obsolete and arcane weapons bans.  The bill, SB 1460, would add second amendment rights to civil rights that are restored when a person who had been convicted of a felony petitions a court for restoration of their rights.  From havasunews.com: Her amendment to SB 1460 legalizes devices "made or adapted to muzzle the report of a firearm.'' Also gone would be prohibitions against any rifle or shotgun with an overall length of less than 26 inches, with...

    Internet is a medium by which every one may publish to every one. The medium must not can not be regulated. Regulation is an abridgment of the freedom of speech and of "the press" Internet is “the tyrant’s foe, and the people’s friend” The FCC is seizing control of the medium. They claim laws of the 1930's as their authority. The 1930's are well before computers and internet existed. The FCC has no authority to regulate the medium. There can be no authority to control the medium.

    Governor Sarah Palin brought focus onto the military veterans who have served this nation in a powerful speech delivered at this year’s CPAC conference. Palin focused on the sacrifice veterans and their families have given to this country, and how our D.C. politicians and the current Obama administration have failed their service. It was a well received emotional speech that resonated strongly with the audience. After her remarks, Palin took a few questions from the event moderator. Palin was introduced by Medal Of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer to a packed audience at the Gaylord Resort in National Harbor, Maryland.

  • Obama Approves Funding for Pipeline

    02/26/2015 5:57:23 PM PST · by mission9 · 18 replies
    In 2014, the World Bank Group committed $5 billion in new technical and financial support for energy projects in six African countries, including Kenya, which have partnered with US president Barack Obama’s Power Africa initiative. Among the projects funded, is the world's longest heated pipeline, which will bring newly discovered Ugandan oil fields to market. The Japanese conglomerate, Toyota, is the major contractor. Much of the oil, is committed to Asian markets, like China. On February 24, 2015 President Barack Obama, vetoed the Keystone XL pipeline, which would be a big boost to mid American and Canadian oil production. When...

Rush did say that the ban was on specific ammunition, but that people should not be fooled.  They want to go after all ammunition, and they have to start someplace. Rush is not a "gun guy"; but he is a far sighted political thinker, and he can see the...

    Socialists, Democrats, Communists and liberals rely on people being kept in the dark about their policies. Things are so much easier for them that way. When the media never asks inconvenient questions, any chance of the truth getting out is generally non-existent. But when the bottom publically falls out of one of their fake “benefits” it becomes impossible for these people to keep us in the dark. When the Berlin Wall was coming down the Communists were still telling people to go back to work at their useless factories where they were making useless commodities no one wanted; but the...

    The University of Minnesota has banned the use of race when describing crime suspects when only a "limited" amount of information is known about them. Specifically, if the race of the suspect is known, but some other identifiable traits are not, the college will not release the race of the criminal. The college uses "Crime Alerts" to warn students of suspects or criminals who may endanger them. However, over the course of several months, the university has looked into how to improve the system. The solution that they announced yesterday: you can no longer identify a suspect using his race...

Giuliani wants to dwell on our exceptionalism -- the idea that we're different from other countries, and much better. It's an old idea that Obama took on in the second year of his presidency, when he said: "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism."That comment annoyed those who wished him to...

We can gather that their state rejects peace as a matter of principle; that it hungers for genocide; that its religious views make it constitutionally incapable of certain types of change, even if that change might ensure its survival; and that it considers itself...

Indeed, they seem unable to restrain that grasping instinct even when it undermines their presumably more important goals–as, for example, when Hillary extracts $300,000 from universities for 45 minutes of platitudes. Tomorrow’s Washington Post reports that while Hillary was Secretary of State, “[t]he Clinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars from seven foreign governments.” How many millions? Weirdly, the Post doesn’t say. It does tell us...

    The Muslim Issue ^ | March 2, 2014
    Muslims who consist of only 4% of the UK population have 200 times the number of sexual perpetrators than any other group, is only a small number of the actual reality. It only represents cases that have come to light. The more cases that are prosecuted, the higher that number goes... Muslim child pimping in the UK, a rampant and widespread crime taking place all across the country that has been covered up and protected by local Muslim politicians and Muslim police officers. This is why Muslims should never be allowed in any form of government position. In fact, immigrants...

    I always find it distressing when a Facebook friend of mine posts something appallingly stupid. It’s one thing when someone you don’t know does it. A total stranger who you’ll never meet is quickly forgotten. Someone you know isn’t so easy to dismiss. It’s the same sort of unsettling feeling I get when I try to imagine the sort of people who buy those tacky commemorative plates they advertise in TV Guide. I realize there are people out there who have no sense of taste whatsoever. But I’m perfectly happy to remain in comfortable ignorance, knowing that I’ll probably never...

    My daughter is graduating this summer--she has a dear friend who lives in Seattle and has suggested my daughter might move out there. Daughter could move anywhere she can find job in her field. My daughter is a conservative tho not a political junkie like her mom LOL. Her friend is probably a moderate, but not particularly political. I have a "moderate" republican friend who said Seattle is just growing by leaps and bounds and lots of young people are moving there. Though I have no direct say in the matter as daughter is an adult and I have not...
  • Sweden: Muslims in Södertälje Getting Harrassed by Assyrian Christians…….

    <p>Some Muslim families are now feeling the pinch in Sweden, as Assyrian Christian youths wrongfully attack Muslims in their areas, with very hurtfull language. Their conduct is condemnable, but it should be noted however, that no matter how wrong their actions are, and indeed they are, it’s prudent to note that they’re only responding in the manner in which the Muslim community treated them when they were living in Islamic lands.</p>
  • Recovery? The World Eases...

    Despite endless proclamations that the world has 'escaped' the financial crisis, the data (and actions) simply do not back that up. The constant propagandizing of either a) US is economically strong and will drive the world's growth engine (factually incorrect), or b) the rest of the world is about to revert to higher growth seems entirely anathema to the fact that in 2015, we have seen a wave of monetary easing - most recently today by Israel. That makes it20 central banks that have cut rates (or eased policy) in the last few weeks - covering over 50% of the...
  • DEFUNDING OBAMA'S AMNESTY: Litmus test for Republicans - true conservatives standing on principle?

    The Midnight Ride ^ | 2/25/2015 | Andrew L. Jaffee
    Republican leadership seems on the verge of caving in, breaking their November 4, 2014 election promises, and funding President Obama's blatantly unconstitutional executive directives to grant amnesty to approximately 5 million illegal immigrants. Did Republicans get the message voters sent in the November 4 election? Republicans took the Senate, strengthened their hold on the House, took a good number of state houses, and won an amazing number of governorships, but voters weren't solely endorsing the GOP -- not by a long-shot. Voters were more concentrated on repudiating President Obama's policies and those of his out-of-control "liberal" establishment. But, before dissecting...

    Do you really feel, by his own words and actions, that this President truly loves this nation? The President of the United States is now claiming that in order to win the fight over terrorism we must sit down and actually address their grievances? Maybe if we find terrorists jobs they will stop killing? The media are the problem not ISIS? Climate change is the biggest threat to the United States today? White House Press calls their own comments “too nuanced” for average Americans to understand? The president has no issue labeling Christians as the problem in the crusades, but...

    America and Russia must both be brain dead in ignoring Islamic State's increasing threat to their vital respective interests in the Middle East Whilst the American—led coalition continues its largely ineffectual air strikes in Iraq and Syria—Islamic State has spread its barbaric tentacles into Libya with alarming rapidity. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for: Attacking Tripoli’s downtown luxury hotel in January - the Corinthian - which left 11 dead The brutal mass beheading of 21 Egyptian Christian Copts A multi-pronged suicide attack that killed at least 45 people in the town al Qubbah in Libya’s east.
