This is the second in a short series of articles designed to offer balance in our celebration of black history month, by honoring a few black conservatives who are making a difference.
Meet Scott Turner, a first term Republican Texas State Representative, representing District 33 which encompasses all of Rockwall and parts of Collin counties. I interviewed Scott over this past weekend, to hear about life in Texas’ 83rd legislative session, and to find out more about this soft-spoken, confident yet humble, successful man. Read more »
Before Black History month in America ends, and in light of the fact that so much of the 2013 celebration honors left-wing African-Americans, this short series of articles offers praise for some truly brave Americans---black Republican and conservative leaders.Read more »
Groundhog Day is a quasi-official national holiday celebrated on February 2nd each year. It is also the name of a classic 1993 movie featuring Bill Murray as Phil, who must live the same day over and over until he learns a lesson or two about life. Seems like voters might want to channel Phil for a while to consider why voting for Democrat policies and government in big cities is imposing the same day over and over on their poor, suffering residents.

Georgetown Constitutional Law Professor Michael Seidman’s January 2nd, 2013 New York Times Op-Ed “Let’s Give Up on the Constitution” has created a stir. While some dismiss his op-ed as a rant based on frustration that House Republicans are raising mild protest to the President’s tax agenda, Seidman’s proposal carries monumental consequences for America and should be roundly rejected.
Seidman argues that America should abandon the Constitution because (1) America hasn’t historically
The fiscal cliff deal in America involves higher taxes, and virtually no spending cuts. On January 1, Americans were hit with a $1 trillion Obamacare tax hike. And, the tax penalty under Obamacare will hit nearly six million uninsured Americans.
In related news, the scholarly and widely respected 2012 Index of Economic Freedom verifies that America is marching steadily and insistently away from freedom.
The Index is an annual international study of 184 countries around the world that focuses on 10 measures of economic freedom, including property rights, investment freedom, and business, trade, fiscal and monetary policy
NOW President urges women to become more dependent on government & supports forced confiscation of Americans’ private property
It is time for a new and honest national conversation in America about what spending policies actually help women.
Does increasing entitlement spending, and growing the size, power and control over society by the federal government make women more independent, successful and “liberated,” or does growing government negatively impact women and their opportunities to flourish and succeed?
My new book, Ladies, Can We Talk? America Needs Our Vote! invites women to take a fresh look at what kind of future our votes today will create. It urges women to consider
UN Conference on Global Warming or Global Wealth Redistribution? And why was Lord Christopher Monckton Evicted?
The United Nations conference on climate change met in Qatar last week, with the purpose of making plans to deal with the supposed impending disaster that conferees believe will flow from global climate change caused by increased levels of manmade CO2 in the atmosphere. No mention in anything that I read about the conference of the fact that only 3% of the CO2 in the atmosphere is manmade, and all the rest is just a naturally occurring element, which is vital for life on earth.

A Proper Tribute to Pearl Harbor: What Have American Leaders Learned in the Seventy-One Years Since the Attack on Pearl Harbor?
Seventy-one years ago, on December 7th, 1941, the Japanese attacked American forces at Pearl Harbor, killing 2,402 Americans, wounding 1,282, destroying 188 aircraft, sinking four Navy battleships, and, as the world later found out, awakening a sleeping giant. Tribute to the victims and to those who fought courageously in World War II should include some examination of how we got to Pearl Harbor Day, and how to not do that again. Read more »
Florida U.S. Congressman Allen West, a strong Tea Party supported conservative Republican has fought some hard battles in his life, as a U.S. Army officer in combat zones including in Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and later in Afghanistan. His awards for brave, valorous and meritorious service are too many to mention. Congressman West’s bravery extends beyond the battlefield: as an African-American Republican he stands strong for conservative principles in the face of relentless attacks by Democrats and liberal organizations and officials.
West’s current battle is to demand a fair and accurate count of the votes in his bid for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives representing Florida’s District 18. Read more »
Insanity Definition (doing the same thing and expecting a different result) Illustrated in Cleveland, Ohio
Yesterday, the day before Election Day 2012, after completing my last “knock on door and distribute literature” assignment as part of the Mighty Texas Strike Force, I drove from the Cleveland suburbs into the city, to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections building. This election location was open for Early Voting on election eve, and the lines were literally multiple city blocks long.
En route from suburb to city, I passed through neighborhoods featuring sagging front porches, roofs missing more tiles than remained intact, litter strewn and weed-overgrown empty lots, more businesses shuttered than functioning, and a depressing sense of bygone bustle and business. The main still-in-business entities I saw were bars. Read more »
