    On the day that a gunman attacked a Colorado Planned Parenthood facility, Mike Adams was in North Carolina. Yet, Adams, a criminology professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington notorious for his anti-abortion and Christian views, was on the receiving end of an inquiry from a fellow professor who wondered about Adams' potential involvement with the shooting suspect. "Did you correspond with him Mike? Maybe inspire him a bit to complete his mission of murdering a university officer and 2 civilians?"

    Hallie Turner, the 13-year-old girl who took North Carolina to court over climate change, received disappointing news the day before Thanksgiving. A Wake County Superior Court judge ruled against her effort to overturn a December 2014 decision by the N.C. Environmental Management Commission. But with the pluck of a teen wise beyond her years, Hallie said Friday the ruling from Judge Mike Morgan had not deterred her. It’s an issue that I’m always going to continue trying to make a difference in, Hallie said during a phone interview. There’s lots of next steps that can be taken.

We fear what the Democrats are doing to destroy the country but we’re angry about what the Republicans aren’t doing to repair the damage. This is why Donald Trump and Ben Carson have been so popular. It’s why so many people are willing to tell pollsters that they support either of the anti-establishment candidates.Thankfully, there’s a third candidate who would stand in stark contrast to the ineffective Republican Establishment that has been harming the party and...

Forty-seven Democrats joined all but two Republicans as the House passed the measure by a veto-proof 289-137 margin, a major setback to the lame duck president on an issue —the Islamic State group and the refugees fleeing it — that shows no signs of easing. The vote exceeded the two-thirds majority required to override a veto, and came despite a rushed, early...

There's concern, after Friday's brutal attack in Paris, that ISIS fighters are infiltrating those fleeing Syria and will carry out future violence...

    Sen. Ted Cruzs wide appeal among conservatives was in high gear this weekend as he got rock star treatment at Texas and North Carolina events. Of six GOP presidential contenders who appeared at an evangelical gathering at the campus of a 7,000-seat mega-church in Texas, Cruz was clearly the favorite, frequently interrupted by cheers and standing ovations. And he was the winner of the North Carolina Tea Party Constitutional Caucus, in which he won 51 percent of the statewide vote, according to The Hill. Cruzs popularity among conservatives is no accident. He has diligently courted evangelicals and Tea Party members...

Cruzs victory over the weekend signals that conservatives will coalesce around the Texas senator, rather than...

    In an interview with NBC's Kristen Welker, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy offered his honest and correct assessment of his party in Congress. Here's the key bit: I think the House is bordering on ungovernable right now. ... Being Speaker is a very difficult job. We need to have a family conversation and sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before that conversation starts. We're getting close ... Now, Gowdy was explaining to Welker why he wouldn't be interested in the soon-to-be vacant job as speaker of the House. But his reasoning is almost certainly why Paul Ryan...

    John Boehner is out (eventually). Kevin McCarthy is out. Conservatives in the House of Representatives are on a roll. But where is the roll going? I applaud the ouster of these insiders. The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the career ambitions of politicians. But what comes next, what follows bold action, is just as important, if not more. On that front, it seems conservatives were wholly unprepared. Nothing against Daniel Webster or Jason Chaffetz, but are they really people who leap to mind when you think leader? Or even articulate and quick-witted conservative? Have...

    The surprise withdrawal of Rep. Kevin McCarthy from the race for Speaker of the House gave the New York Times an excuse to issue a series of front-page stories larded up with hostile "hard-line" and "hard-right" labels mocking the apparent chaos surrounding congressional Republicans, being held "hostage" by the party's conservative wing. - See more at: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/clay-waters/2015/10/10/nyt-bashes-white-rural-clutch-unyielding-hard-line-conservatives#sthash.8A8MH9Mf.dpuf

    The news alert about Kevin McCarthys abandonment of his pursuit to become John Boehners successor hit my phone just as I was about to go for a run. Rather than read the whole story, I just smiled and hit the pavement. Within the first few steps I wondered how long it would take before the hyperbole-laden garment rending would begin in the left media about conservatives being the death of the Republican Party, congressional compromise, and the frolicsome joy we so love to see in puppies and kittens. It was a short run, but they were on it by the...

    ABC11 is running a poll to gauge whether people think armed, trained, teachers should be allowed to protect students. They have framed the question as an all or nothing choice between all teachers being armed and none. The people voting on the poll are not buying it, and are voting for armed teachers almost 2-1.Here is a link to the poll. It is a down on the bottom of the article. The article is about a North Carolina father petitioning the local school to allow select and trained teachers to protect children. Wrenns proposal says any administrator or teacher that...

    In what has become an all-too-frequent occurrence, Fox News wasted no time taking a swipe at conservatives. We've seen it plenty of times now -- from commentators having meltdowns because their establishment candidate isn't the frontrunner to openly criticizing conservatives as out of touch or crazy. Now, the race for Speaker of the House is up in the air, and Fox News has singled out a certain conservative candidate as the possible culprit. Some of the Fox News bias really came to light with the ascendance of Donald Trump. Trump is certainly no conservative, but he speaks out against the...
