    It’s very clear by observing the state of our nation that the Republican Party is on the wrong track. Not just because our so-called leaders are looking after themselves and their personal self interests. That’s been the theme for decades. No, another major reason is their belief that embracing the priorities of the “youth” is a ticket to electoral success and it's NOT.

    Nevermind for the moment that I have been posting – for the last year or so – sourced, circumstantial evidence that the United States has a dirty deal with Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood, and by extension, IS[IS]. Nevermind that I provided sourced evidence that NATO contracts with heroin smugglers for the Taliban, through the Pakistani National Logistics Cell. I was asked by the President of this club to self-censor, and remove the article. I received an email requesting this, but was not near a computer. By the time I got home, at which point I could respond to the...

    It was difficult to miss Ian Jacobson at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Known as Rooster, he was 33, with an ample beard, earrings and a towering orange-and-aqua spiked Mohawk haircut. But he also sported a pinstriped suit, French cuffs and a natty contrast collar. Mr. Jacobson’s sartorial contradictions matched those of his politics: He is among the young Republicans who are pro-free market on fiscal issues and libertarian on social ones. While his views represent a potential growth wing for a party that is losing among other demographic groups, they also show an emerging tension with the older social...

    You know something is changing in American mores when the supposed leader of the culture wars from the right, Sarah Palin, declares that smoking pot is “a minimal problem” and that “if somebody’s gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody any harm, then perhaps there are other things our cops should be looking at to engage in.” Like many other pointless wars, the culture conflict has mainly resulted in exhaustion. Now the troops are laying down their arms and going home. More and more Americans, particularly in the youngest generation of adults, are shrugging at drug...

On Tuesday afternoon, Glenn Murphy Jr. e-mailed media outlets a letter announcing his resignation from both positions, citing an unexpected business opportunity that would prohibit him from holding a partisan political office.

    It doesn't take much to see that conservative, Republican voters are still having a little trouble deciding which way to turn in the 2008 presidential election. If you listen closely to the American people, you will hear people talking about the concept of an ideal candidate. Sean Hannity described him as someone with the optimism and the ability to speak to the public like Ronald Reagan, and with the intellectual backbone of Newt Gingrich. Let me make a proposal to you about Congressman Duncan Hunter. Congressman Hunter is not just another politician. If you look at his list of accomplishments,...

    The former head of the Michigan Federation of Young Republicans admitted today that he sexually abused a colleague during a national convention here last summer. Michael Flory, a 32-year-old attorney from Jackson, Mich., pleaded guilty to sexual battery on the day he was to stand trial for rape. The teary-eyed college student he overpowered in a downtown hotel room gasped and dabbed her eyes as Flory replied to Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Peter Corrigan's question, "Are you indeed guilty?" "Sure - yeah," Flory said. Corrigan set sentencing for Sept. 13. Flory faces a sentence that ranges from probation to...

He branded Democrats as "the party of despair." Chants of "Fred" and "Run, Fred, Run," greeted the actor and former GOP senator from Tennessee from many among the 350 people at the Young Republicans National Convention. The crowd interrupted his nine-minute speech with wild applause and mobbed him when he left. "It makes me feel like the waters are pretty warm," Thompson said afterward. He has formed an exploratory committee to gauge...

He said he is “raising seed money” and “getting people together.” “We’ll be making a decision in the not too distant future,” he said. Speaking of the 2008 elections, he said “we’ll win this next election, like so many we have before.” Thompson thanked the Young Republicans for their support, noting that he started a chapter of the group as a young man after reading “Conscience of a Conservative,” by Barry Goldwater.

    Sorry, no pictures. I just returned from California State University at Monterey Bay where the University is hosting Ward Churchill this evening. The Young Republicans on campus held a very nice candlelight vigil, attended by about 50-60 people. Three young ladies read the names of every 9/11 victim to remember them as people, not as the "Little Eichmans" that the left, and Mr Churchill have labled them. It was a very nice event. That is, as nice as it could be against the backdrop of about 150 of the great unwashed, chanting anti-Bush slogans throughout the reading of each name....

    Throughout 2003 and into 2004, a surge of protests roiled American campuses. You probably think the kids were agitating against war in Iraq, right? Well, no. Students at the University of California-Los Angeles, Michigan and many other schools were sponsoring bake sales to protest ... affirmative action. For white students and faculty, a cookie cost (depending on the school) $1; blacks and Latinos could buy one for a lot less. The principle, the protesters observed, was the same one governing university admission practices: treating people differently based on race. The protests shocked the mainstream media, but to close observers of...

Naturally, they headed to a basement bar in Georgetown that has become an unofficial clubhouse for the Jenna and Barbara Bush generation. At that bar, Smith Point, these refugees in cummerbunds and gowns shimmied to a D.J. playing the Beastie Boys and slurped vodka shots poured down an ice-sculpture luge.

In 1954, when he was 28, William F.

That formulation held the movement together for five decades, as Ronald Reagan brought conservatives to power, George H. W. Bush declared victory in the cold war...

    College students are usually expected to be sophomoric in political outlook, only discovering conservative values once they're finally forced to pick up their own bar tabs. "Anyone who isn't a socialist at age 20," Churchill is erroneously said to have said, "doesn't have a heart." College is a time of protest and experimentation that temporarily places students to the left of their working peers and parents. However, a recently released survey conducted by Harvard University's Institute of Politics (IOP), casts some doubt on this picture. The IOP interviewed 1,202 undergraduates in the first part of October, (with margin of error...

The controversy surrounding Diana's 24-year-old staff assistant, Karl Brabenec, started at the Young Republicans national convention July 11, when his friends distributed fliers "for lots of beer, liquor and sex" at a party dubbed, "Karlpalooza '03." Since then, copies of the incriminating invites have surfaced in Orange County, prompting cries of disgust from women's groups, county legislators and fellow Republicans. The furor reached a fever...

    With their ranks swelling on college campuses, young conservatives say they are revolutionaries fighting a liberal establishment. They're meeting in D.C. this week to promote the cause. They've come to hear words of wisdom from Ferris Bueller scene stealer Ben Stein, funkadelic music promoter Reginald Jones, bomb-throwing bombshell Ann Coulter, and the impossible-to-squelch G. Gordon Liddy, among others. They're here to tour Capitol Hill, hear a lecture on "the failures of feminism," and hang out with others of their kind. The 187 high school and college students attending the 25th Annual National Conservative Student Conference that began Sunday and ends...

    BOSTON (Talon News) -- Michael Mack was narrowly elected the next chairman of the Young Republican National Federation (YRNF) on Saturday, defeating opposition candidate Mike Flory to move up one rank from his former position of national co-chairman. Concerns about the integrity of the election process have been widespread since the convention began, however, and became especially pronounced after the official tally was announced. At the YR National Board Meeting on Sunday, Flory filed a complaint to investigate the charges. An official complaint would involve the establishment of a "dispute resolution" committee, led by the chairman of the YR State...

    Tempers Flare at Young Republicans Convention as Delegates Clash over Amendments By Stephen Dewey Talon News July 12, 2003 BOSTON (Talon News) -- The Young Republicans convention broke down into shouting and some physical contact on Friday as delegates for opposing tickets clashed over amendments being considered by the Young Republican National Federation's (YRNF) Constitution and By-Laws Committee. Such amendments would realign the YRNF's administrative regions to match those of the RNC, easing cooperation between the two organizations. The change would also provide legitimacy to the ticket of Mike Flory and DeAnna Brangers. Currently, Brangers would be ineligible to serve...

    The New Black Panther Party leader was invited for what was billed as an "open-minded dialogue" during the group's annual meeting. The crowd, mostly white males, warmed up to the bombastic leader once he said he does not hate them or other whites, supports the GOP's stance on family values, opposes affirmative action, and belongs to the National Rifle Association. But the most spirited applause came when Quanell X described Democrats as "pimps" who often trick blacks into supporting them, only to betray them once elected. Quanell X also had caustic comments about the Republican Party, which he called a...
