    There are about 90 to 100 million of us who claim Jesus. The problem is only half of you register to vote and out of the half of you that registers to vote, only half of that group actually goes and votes…. Therefore, when you’re looking up there and griping and complaining about what you see in Washington, D.C., you might as well shut up. The reason they’re there is we’re putting them there. If you don’t get anything else out of this, remember this — register to vote for crying out loud… If the dude or woman is for...

    Louisiana Republican Rep. Vance McAllister — known as the “Kissing Congressman” — has decided to seek a full term after announcing his retirement earlier this year. McAllister had hinted for weeks he was considering running for reelection, but he confirmed it in an interview with the Monroe News-Star this morning. He later confirmed the news at a press conference at a park in Monroe, where he was greeted with “enthusiastic applause” by upwards of 75 supporters, the newspaper reported. “I wanted to make sure everything was good with our family,” McAllister told The News-Star earlier in the day.

    The Republican Party has a lot of problems, and if there’s one that doesn’t get enough attention, it’s the party’s broad appeal to provocateurs, faux martyrs, and grifters. Just look at the speakers list for the Republican Leadership Conference, which began on Thursday. There’s Donald Trump, the man who made “birtherism” a national cause; Herman Cain, whose presidential run was a glorified book tour; Dinesh D’Souza, who just pleaded guilty to a felony campaign finance violation, and Phil Robertson, the Duck Dynasty star who—like Cliven Bundy—believes black Americans were better off under racist oppression. In fairness, I’m sure Robertson despises...

    Recent events have not been kind to the radical homosexual lobby and its efforts to impose "homo-normalization" onto America. For years, Big Gay has given the appearance of being an unstoppable juggernaut as it rolled from one court victory to the next, leaving behind it a wreckage of ruined lives of people who had the temerity to not show enough deference to the gay agenda. Yet, there are a few recent signs that this might be changing. It brings up the question, "Are average, everyday Americans finally tired enough of being bullied, hectored, accused, attacked, shouted at, threatened, and otherwise...
  • Special Report: The Status of the Tea Party Movement Part One: The Tea Party in 2013

    During the month of January 2014, IREHR will publish a multi-segment special report on the current status of the Tea Party movement. We will publish a track the membership of the principal organizations in the movement—a task undertaken by no organization or agency other than IREHR. We will look at geographic regions where this membership is concentrated. And we will look at some of the money that keeps this movement in the public eye. In the piece below, we follow the Tea Parties over the course of 2013. It was a year of countervailing winds and storms. A drive against...

    It happened again. This time it was Phil Robertson, the patriarch of “Duck Dynasty,” who pulled back the shades on an immense body of TV viewers who had apparently escaped the notice of top execs at A+E Networks. But they should have known. It was this “mystery audience” that made History’s miniseries “The Bible” a smash hit not long ago. Yet A+E leaders Nancy Dubuc and Abbe Raven can be forgiven for failing to anticipate the nuclear backlash that benching the fuzzy-faced man from West Monroe, La., would stir after his condemnation of homosexual behavior in an interview with GQ...

    A Vietnam veteran has taken aim at Duck Dynasty products on sale at a Veterans Affairs Medical Center store in Albuquerque, and it looks like all the items in his cross hairs will be removed from the canteen's shelves. Robert Anderson is one of many people upset over a magazine interview in which Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson made comments they found racist and homophobic. In the January issue of GQ, the 67-year-old TV patriarch calls homosexuality a sin, comparing it with bestiality. Robertson, who is white, also claims that African-Americans he knew during the Jim Crow era in the...

    As I was preparing for a study of the Jewish Feasts Days, I happened across Leviticus 18:22-30 and the words grabbed me and held me there. I had read the verses before, but it seems I was just looking at the word "abomination" and thought it was unusual for God to describe that particular sin in a more forceful way, than say, "stealing". As I re read the verses, It caught my eye that God was giving the Jews the land because the people before them had committed sodomy before them. Then God warns the Jews that if they did...

    Missy Robertson has always been busy long before the fame of A&E's Duck Dynasty came knocking on her door. As the wife of Jase Robertson, her growing schedule demanded numerous public appearances and beckoned her to fill a void in the fashion industry a stylish yet comfortable and age appropriate clothing line. The line is in collaboration with Stephanie Carter's Southern Fashion House, which produces Judith March, Jacque and Janis clothing lines and DejaVu boutiques. Robertson has long been a fan of the Judith March line and immediately turned to Carter to help bring her vision to fruition. "I...

    Prediction: 2014 will be an amazing year for you and me. To borrow a line from Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, I predict 2014 will be: “Happy, Happy, Happy.” We’re less than one week into the New Year, and I can already tell that 2014 has wondrous things in store. For nearly six years, independent and conservatively-minded Americans have endured the grey skies and choppy waters of the Obama administration. Now, I feel like the tide is finally turning. A new sun is rising. The smell of joy is in the air. In Genesis, when Noah wanted to see whether...

    As we reported the other day, CNN and the the Huffington Post have tried to invent a new phony controversy, by taking a humorous relaying of marriage advice to a teenager in 2009 video of Phil Robertson ridiculously out of context. The Robertson Family are no strangers to vicious attacks and smears from the Left, but no family member has yet gone on the record to specifically speak out on behalf of their patriarch. Until now. Phil's oldest son, Pastor Alan Robertson, recently spoke to The Christian Post about his dad, stating he was standing up for Christian values in his comments...

    When MSNBC's Thomas Roberts announced the new line of Duck Commander guns on January 3rd, he was joined by Len Everett of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. Everett claimed Phil Robertson, of Duck Dynasty fame, made his controversial comments to sell guns to conservative, middle-aged, white males and criticized the Robertson family for selling the kinds of guns used in mass shootings. Roberts used leading questions to guide Everett in making these points throughout the segment. For example, Roberts introduced Everett by pointing out that the new line of guns includes a "semi-automatic pistol" and "two semi-automatic rifles." Moreover,...

    On Friday, MSNBC host Thomas Roberts talked with Len Everett of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence about the joint release of a new line of Duck Commander shotguns and rifles from gunmaker Mossberg and the Robertson family of "Duck Dynasty" fame. Amazingly, the conversation hints that because of the rifles' high-capacity magazines, they could be used for more than just ducks -- perhaps even shooting people. During the conversation, Everett explains that the gun industry's consumer base is predominantly "conservative, middle-aged, white males," which host Roberts says is the exact audience that watches Duck Dynasty. Then, they jump to discussing the...
