  • Pat Roberts: Jarrett Involved with IRS Scandal (estab Repub actually gets something right)

    Republican Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts said Friday that he thinks the IRS targeting scandal was driven by Valerie Jarrett’s office in the White House, according to information that he saw that Democrats tried to “whitewash.” Roberts told talk radio host Hugh Hewitt that he participated in a Senate Finance Committee investigation into the IRS scandal but “the effort was made by the majority, by the Democrats in the Congress, to simply end that investigation,” which he called a “whitewash.” “I’m convinced that even Valerie Jarrett was involved,” Roberts said.

    Need some help remembering: where Mike Huckabee has demonstrated his establishment thinking and his lack of understanding of conservative issues (outside of the social issues)- and where he has bought into big government solutions. I'm on a panel tomorrow about Huckabee in 2016 (I did not choose the topic) - and I need some memory jogging.

    A funny thing happened on the way to Michael Sam just wanting to play football -- and on being judged by his performance on the field and not his sexual orientation. After all, we were told ad nauseam, by Sam and his promoters in the sports media, that this is what Sam is about. If you Google “Michael Sam just wants to play football,” some 67 million results pop up. He also flatly stated that he "wanted to stop talking about his sexual orientation" and "let (his) work on the field speak for itself” in a radio interview, among other...

It happened just as I came across his show - so I must say up front I may have heard it wrong, or perhaps out of context. If anyone can correct this, please do so. BUT, I think he said something to the effect of he's happy to go thru the process, that if it will keep us all safer, we should all just do it.

    The Lindsey Graham campaign is still trying to defend the establishment incumbent’s “yes” vote on a key ObamaCare measure – not to mention their highly deceptive TV ad that is now running. “Lindsey Graham still doesn’t get it,” said Lee Bright, the upstate Senator who is the leading challenger to Graham for the Republican nomination. “Leadership takes vision and an understanding of the times. Ted Cruz understands, Graham does not, and that’s why he was joining Team Obama and the Washington establishment in criticizing Cruz at the very moment Cruz was taking the hard stand.” Bright went on to say,...

    In what could be a major turning point in the race to oust Lindsey Graham from the U.S. Senate, most of South Carolina’s grassroots and Tea Party leaders are officially lining up to endorse Lee Bright Thursday morning on the front steps of the State House in Columbia. The announcement is set for 10 a.m. The boost for the upstate Senator comes a little over a month after the Tea Party Convention in Myrtle Beach, where the consensus was that Bright carried the candidates’ debate – and had a clear plurality of support – dynamics that have been supported by...

    Upstate Senator Lee Bright’s campaign appears to be gaining steam while incumbent Lindsey Graham looks to be in deep trouble according to a recent poll of likely Republican Primary voters in South Carolina. The big picture results of the survey show that South Carolinians are deeply dissatisfied with Graham, Bright is dominating the crowded field of challengers, and both trends seem to be building. Only 38% of voters said that Graham deserves to be re-elected, while 49% said it’s time for someone new. That someone would appear to be Bright, who polled more than Nancy Mace, Bill Connor and Richard...

    It's been almost comical to watch the liberal sports media's obvious arousal over what they deem the heroic effort by the Northwestern football team to unionize. I say almost comical because this effort is something that could change the face of college athletics forever, and not necessarily for the good either. It is also based on a fundamental flaw. And as is the case with liberals in general, the MSNBC wannabes at ESPN - and other outlets - have no situational awareness of the potential unintended consequences if this is successful. They are simply driven by the leftist reflexive hatred...

    In typical establishment fashion, Reince Priebus and the wizards at the RNC have looked at the last presidential nomination cycle and learned the wrong lessons. They have concluded that not allowing Mitt Romney a smooth coronation was the problem, and they are out to make sure their anointed one never has to face that again. As such, the prescriptions for change recently announced by Priebus will only make things worse. This is what happens when a national party is isolated from -- and igorant of -- its nation. Yes, the debates did become a series of shameless food fights as...

    Sports offers teachable insights into the leftist mindset, and even cursory observations verify that everything is political with these folks. This is unavoidable, I suppose, when your power is derived from electoral or public relation successes of the grievance industry. Thus, we know for sure liberals could not simply enjoy Monday's BCS Title Game the way normal folks did. Having been dealt one setback after another in their quest to force the NFL's Washington Redskins to change their moniker, one of the nations leading liberal sports journalists (aren't they all?) has made it official: Florida State is now the cause...

    ESPN's normally excellent "Sports Reporters" show joined the ranks of GLAAD, Organizing For America (OFA), Out2Enroll and others in yet another attempt by the cultural left to redefine what it means to be a man in this country in 2013. At least, this was the apparent goal of panelist Pablo Torre, who ended the show in his Parting Shot (all four panelist get a parting shot each week) with a soliloquy titled "Redefining Masculinity." It can be searched and found under that name in fact, and for what it's worth, you will notice that Torre could easily be a stand...

    American Thinker ^ | 12-16-13 | C Edmund Wright
    Last Thursday, Rush Limbaugh gave tacit approval of a stunning idea: a virtual Congress. To start, Rush spent the better part of two hours brilliantly explaining why even the best people we send to Washington will never rein in the federal government. Simply put, once in Washington, the vast majority of our elected officials become of Washington, and their limited-government instincts die. There are many reasons for this, but all fall under the general heading of irresistible human nature. As economist Jerry Bowyer says, Washington is a company town, and the company is government. I love Jim DeMint, but if...

    Economics: It seems the official position of Pope Francis is that the free market is a wicked enemy that must be restrained. With all due respect, he's mistaken. The free market has been a heavenly blessing. Two days before our American Thanksgiving, the Argentinian pontiff, in his first apostolic exhortation, called the free market a "new tyranny." "Some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world," he wrote in the Vatican report. Claims of free-market success, he said, have...

    LINDSEY GRAHAMS APPEASEMENT APPROACH PROVEN FAILURE The naïve bipartisan strategy preferred by Republican moderates like Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Mitch McConnell was further embarrassed on Thursday, as Harry Reid and the Democrats rammed through a measure limiting the rights of the Senate minority on a party line vote. “I wonder if Lindsey Graham and John McCain have learned their lesson yet” said Lee Bright following the 52-48 vote engineered by Reid that takes away the 60 vote cloture rules on certain Senate votes.

    The leading challenger to Lindsey Graham, Lee Bright, took on NBC Political Director Chuck Todd on Todd's "Daily Rundown" show on MSNBC - in an interview just completed. Todd repeatedly tried to trip Bright up on Common Core, but Bright was having none of it - calling one of Todd's questions "absurd" at one point. Todd's facial expression clearly showed disappointment, as he obviously thought he had some "gotcha" moments….but they all failed. I'll post video as soon as available.

    The main reason I left the insurance industry years ago was the fatigue of marketing a product that is misunderstood by the vast majority of its customer base, not to mention the majority of functionaries inside the industry. I was a lousy agent frankly, but for some reason, the concepts were very intuitive to me.

Alas, this escape was only temporary, as we all now live in a country where...

    To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, you’d have to have a heart of stone not to laugh at the unraveling of Obamacare. First, the obligatory caveats. It is no laughing matter that millions of Americans’ lives have been thrown into anxious chaos as they lose their health insurance, their doctors, their money, or all three. Nor is it particularly amusing to think of the incredible waste of time and tax dollars that has gone into Obamacare’s construction. And the still-unfolding violence that this misbegotten legislation will visit on the economy and our liberties is not funny either. This very magazine has been...

Laurens County GOP Chairman Travis Cash knows that 2014 is not a normal circumstance, and is enthusiastically endorsing Lee Bright for the U.S. Senate. “This is a man who has consistently voted for constitutional law, and when he says he’ll do something, he does it,” says Cash of Bright. “He’ll continue that going into the US Senate.

    While the Republican establishment was obsessing over the government shutdown, the evils of Ted Cruz, and the latest Jurassic media poll designed specifically to fool them, they remained blind to the massive iceberg that was about to nearly destroy the McAuliffe money machine campaign. As such, they missed a golden opportunity to nudge Ken Cuccinelli across the finish line -- an opportunity the GOP base understood. While Michael Barone did not say this in so many words, these are the inescapable conclusions of his Virginia race analysis. That iceberg? That would be the reality of ObamaCare, as it sinks in...

In addition, the membership voted unanimously to adopt the RNC’s resolution to flatly reject Common Core. “This is another great result for our campaign,”...

    In his weekly radio address, President Obama preposterously pouted that "it's well past the time for folks to stop rooting for [ObamaCare's] failure," with the obvious implication that conservative Republicans are in fact cheering for the pain of the un-insured. No, Mr. President, we are not. We are, however, having a delicious moment of schaden-fraud.

    All across the country, voters are paying closer attention to the particulars of Senate procedures. As a result, they were angered and insulted by Senator Lindsey Graham, who dishonestly tried to hide behind procedural motions like the recent cloture vote and claim to support defunding ObamaCare while their votes actually make it more difficult to do just that. This newfound understanding and interest by voters is a positive development for the future of liberty. It is an extension of the engagement on the part of citizens that was sparked by Rick Santelli's 'Lake Michigan Tea Party' rant in early 2009,...

    “Once again, Sen. Lindsey Graham has ignored his constituents by helping the Democrat Senate Majority Leader pass a Continuing Resolution which includes full funding for Obamacare. Lindsey Graham has been in Washington for decades but he is still falling for the tricks of Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer. It is disheartening to see that, despite the heroic efforts of Senate conservatives to stop the implementation of Obamacare, Sen. Graham followed in lockstep with Senator John McCain, saying that because McCain and Mitt Romney lost the last two elections, Republicans should completely surrender to every demand President Obama makes. I disagree."

    As our nation contemplates the awful assault on innocent Americans on September 11th twelve years ago, elected officials in the Washington beltway elite are contemplating an attack in Syria, an attack which will aid the very groups who perpetrated those 2001 attacks. These elites are supposedly the best and brightest among us, but this situation with Syria reminds us, as so many other issues have in recent years, that they are no longer capable of leading us. I submit they are not the best and the brightest, but simply the most arrogant and isolated.

    Once thought to be a sure bet for re-election, a new poll shows that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has seen his support fall among South Carolina Republicans, as his three primary challengers begin their campaigns against him. The poll, conducted by Landmark Communications and Rosetta Stone Communications, shows Graham at 42%, Lee Bright with 13%, Nancy Mace taking 10%, and Richard Cash at 7%. And though he fares better in head-to-head matchups against his primary challengers, Graham is still under 50%. “These numbers should be of concern to the Graham campaign. The senator fails to reach 50% of the vote...

    This morning we showed up at Moore Square at 9:00 a.m., just like we have done virtually every Saturday and Sunday for the last six years. We provide, without cost or obligation, hot coffee and a breakfast sandwich to anyone who wants one. We keep this promise to our community in cooperation with five different large suburban churches that help us with manpower and funding. Today officers from Raleigh Police Department prevented us from doing our work, for the first time ever. An officer said, quite bluntly, that if we attempted to distribute food, we would be arrested.

    Red Statements recognizes the continuance of Lindsay Graham as senator from South Carolina is intolerable. We here in the Palmetto State need a representative who reflects our conservative values and who does not “go along to get along’ or wants the job to improve their personal desires. South Carolina needs Lee Bright. Lee Bright is not a follower, he is a leader. Glenn Beck’s, The Blaze asks if Lee Bright is the next Ted Cruz. The answer is a resounding yes. Bright has a 100% score from the South Carolina Club For Growth and a 92% conservative rating from the...
  • Debate's Biggest Loser? Chris Wallace and Fox (2011 advocating Levin et al as moderators!!!)

    (snip).....Perhaps it is time to totally rethink some debate assumptions, at least from the party standpoint during the primary process. The Jurassic media is really not a necessary ingredient in this process in this day of the new media and the social media. Engaged primary voters, who are the entire ballgame at this juncture, are easily able to follow the candidates through talk radio and the internet -- including the social media. In other words, there likely are not legions of Republican primary voter in the country who care a whit what Chris Wallace thinks. After last night, many will...
  • Really Stupid Things Said by Melissa Harris-Perry...and other liberals

    Melissa Harris-Perry, a Tulane Professor and a paid contributor at MSNBC, has said - for the record - several astonishing absurdities in just the past few weeks. She said that parents determine when life begins, she said that Detroit is what happens when government is too small, she wore tampon ear rings on cable TV - and it seems to me she said some blitheringly ignorant things on Zimmerman as well. And of course, another professor, Michael Eric Dyson, said that blacks kill other blacks because they are so mad at white racism. Then there was the MSNBC commentator who...
  • Schadenfreude, Michigan and Mitt's Big Campaign Fumble

    In all honesty, I am having a hard time not feeling a touch of schadenfreude as the abject disaster of the once great city of Detroit becomes obvious. I'm not defending that response -- and I do have other emotions as well -- I'm just being honest. You probably feel it too. After all, we both know that people in the Motor City, and the state of Michigan in fact, have brought this doom on themselves with their very liberal ballot habits of the past 60 years. Conservatives have warned them about it for at least several decades, to no...
