  • Police are safer under Obama than they have been in decades

    In the aftermath of the mass shooting of a dozen police officers in Dallas this week, some conservatives rushed to lay blame for the incident at the feet of the Obama administration. Former Republican congressman Joe Walsh said on Twitter that "Obama's words & [Black Lives Matter]'s deeds have gotten cops killed." Rep. Roger Williams (R-Tex.) said, "the spread of misinformation and constant instigation by prominent leaders, including our president" contributed to the killings. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said the shooting had "roots" in the "anti-white/cop events illuminated by Obama." These statements are part of a broader narrative of a...
  • Cruz joins in Red River property dispute

    This week, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz joined an amicus brief on behalf of 22 members of the Texas congressional delegation in support of private landowners along the Red River. The Bureau of Land Management has recently made waves by claiming thousands of acres of privately owned Texas land along the Red River. It has done so by utilizing — in apparent violation of a nearly 100-year-old Supreme Court precedent and tradition — an arbitrary and bizarre gradient boundary survey method that has adversely impacted private landowners. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) joined Cruz in the brief...
  • The 2009 Fort Hood victims finally receive their Purple Hearts

    “It’s long past time to call the Fort Hood attack what it was: radical Islamic terrorism. And, this recognition for Fort Hood terrorist victims is overdue. The victims and their families deserve our prayers and support, and this legislation rightly honors them for defending our nation in the face of a heinous act of terror”
 - Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Reps. John Carter (R-Texas) and Roger Williams (R-Texas) added words to legislation of the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that expanded “eligibility for the Purple Heart to include members of the Armed Forces who have been killed or wounded...

    A Texas Republican plans to introduce a resolution of Articles of Impeachment for Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday. Rep. Pete Olson’s (R-Texas) office said this morning that “this was not a decision made lightly,” but comes with Holder’s “pattern of disregard for the rule of law and refusal to be forthright with Congress and the American people” since being held in contempt in June 2012. That 255-67 vote on criminal contempt, which included 17 Democrats, was tied to the Fast and Furious scandal and marked the first time Congress has found an attorney general in contempt. A measure of...

    Roger Williams, the virtuoso pianist who topped the Billboard pop charts in the 1950s and played for nine U.S. presidents during a long career, died Saturday. He was 87. [snip] "Roger was one of the greatest pianists in the world, and could play anything to classical music to jazz. He was one of the greatest personalities I've ever known," said Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, a longtime friend of Williams and himself a musician. "He could touch any audience, from teenagers to senior citizens." Williams' 1955 hit "Autumn Leaves" was the first instrumental song to reach number one on the...

    Former President George H.W. Bush will endorse Republican Roger Williams this afternoon for the U.S. Senate seat that Kay Bailey Hutchison now holds. The race to succeed Hutchison, who is not seeking re-election, has drawn interest from a number of Republicans, including railroad commissioners Elizabeth Ames Jones and Michael Williams. Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst is also considering a run. Roger Williams is a Weatherford car dealer and former Texas secretary of state who was a major Republican donor before he was a candidate. The Bush endorsement could give his campaign a nice boost, particularly since the field is crowded and...

    I'm tired of having to choose between nominating the RINOs because "they can win" or nominating the person that I agree with that can't attract independents. Maro Rubio is the ideal candidate. He is a strong conservative but also has great appeal to independents. Right now, Roger Williams of Texas and Ken Buck of Colorado are two other candidates that have what it takes to appeal to broad section of their respective states, and ARE CONSERVATIVE. Here is a great link from Roger Williams: and one from Ken Buck. These are two leaders we need in the Senate...

    Why Can’t They “Just Get Along”? V-Day meets P-Day on campus. By Christina Hoff Sommers Warning:The following contains adult (in this case, collegiate) language, along with gratuitous references to male and female genitalia. College administrators have been enthusiastic supporters Eve Ensler’s play The Vagina Monologues and schools across the nation celebrate “V-Day” (short for Vagina Day) every year. But when the College Republicans at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island rained on the celebrations of V-Day by inaugurating Penis Day and staging a satire called The Penis Monologues, the official reaction was horror. Two participating students, Monique Stuart and Andy...

    AUSTIN — Gov. Rick Perry's pick for secretary of state, Roger Williams, was easily backed by the Senate Nominations Committee on Wednesday as he emphasized the need to not only turn out more Texans to vote but bring them more jobs. His nomination, endorsed 6-0 by the committee with one member absent, heads to the full Senate. While Williams said no task is more important than administering elections, he said his role also is to be the state's "chief business officer." "I will take Texas to America and ensure everyone knows Texas is the best place in America to do...

    Sometimes schools do silly things, particularly in the name of racial diversity, that, more frequently, only deepen racial division. When Jason Mattera, a student at Roger Williams University, offered a controversial “whites only” scholarship to students at the school, the project drew national criticism. “Fifty radio stations had me on with the local director of the NAACP,” Mattera remembered in an appearance before Accuracy in Academia’s Conservative University conference in July. Mattera, who heads the College Republicans at Roger Williams, remembered that even the state GOP wanted no part of the project, which he said was intended to parody government...

    I was reading something earlier, and came across the name Roger Williams. I remembered the name, because I recall when I was young asking my Mom if we were related to anyone famous. She said, well my family name is Williams, and we are descended from Roger Williams, the man who founded Rhode Island. Of course, I wasnt too impressed as I never had heard of him, but it did stick with me.Well I had a few minutes to google around, and in reading about him I discover that he founded the first Baptist Church. This blew me away because...
  • Separate but Equally Delicious (Activist Campus Conservatives Improve on Leftist Tactics)

    03/05/2004 8:17:38 PM PST · by Zunt Toad · 14 replies · 294+ views
    The phrase “student activists” usually conjures up images of sign-waving protestors railing against various evils of the establishment. Indeed, for decades after the modern student movement began at the University of California-Berkeley in the 1960s, such protestors were traditionally liberal —and reflexively so, given that administrations were comparatively conservative. But now that today’s educational establishment is populated with yesterday’s student radicals, conservatives find themselves in the odd position of being the protestors. But rather than rely on disruptive tactics, modern conservatives are improving on plays from the liberal handbook: They’re making their points with wit and humor, not catcalling and...

    Our Mission by Jedediah Jones The political left controls most media venues and institutions of learning and through them manipulates public opinion to launch a ruthless assault on the traditions, values, and integrity of the United States of America. These so-called “liberals” regulate inquiry, suppress free speech, endorse big government, and promote socialist and communist ideologies in their quest to fulfill false promises of unachievable collectivist utopias, to usurp power from individuals and place it in the hands of the State. In their ongoing effort to brainwash Americans through overt and hidden biases and historic domination of communicative outlets, these...

    Horowitz at Roger Williams U.By Richard SalitProvidence (R.I.) Journal | March 6, 2003 Note:  The following account of my speech at Roger Williams College in Rhode Island appeared in the Providence Journal, a liberal paper in a Democratic state. By and large the account is accurate, but the following three items need correction:1) I said "when your country has been attacked there can be no peace movement," and not just that the fact that we are already at war with Iraq and have been since 1991 means that there can be no peace movement. 2) In my reparations campaign I did...
