“12 Times the GOP Establishment Kicked the Conservative Base in the Teeth”

by Skip October 27, 2015

It isn’t just the Obama IRS that has been shafting conservatives when seeking non-profit status (and then the Obama DOJ now clearing Lois Lerner of any wrong doing – blaming it on incompetent management), or the Obama Labor department going after large Republican donor / entrepreneurs for “labor violations” or the FEC now targeting conservative […]

The Crony Capitalists at the US Chamber of Commerce LOVE Kelly Ayotte!!!

by Skip July 29, 2015

You’ve already seen the kissey-face political ads celebrating US Senator Kelly (R-NH) running on NH stations with the message of the US Chamber of Commerce NH NEEDS KELLY.  Methinks it is more for the Chamber than for NH.  But the Chamber is already going for her as no one has step to primary her as […]

Chariots of fire

by Susan Olsen July 6, 2015

“Recently I’ve been hearing a lot of conservatives saying things like, “It’s over. The left has won. This is no longer America. I’m not even going to celebrate the Fourth of July this year.” I confess this disturbs me. I expect feminists to squeal like hysterical little girls. I expect Social Justice Warriors to act […]

Are the Republican chickens coming home to roost?

by Skip July 1, 2015

From Erick Erickson at Redstate – he points out what a lot of us are thinking, that the fundamental transformation has taken root and a big part of it is the turning upside down and inside out of both our public policy (which WILL be enforced as YOUR new private morals (and what you have now be […]

“There’s a baby in that bathwater…”

by Susan Olsen April 8, 2015

“For conservatives who ostensibly venerate the Constitution, it is odd to see so many of them fail to acknowledge that proposing it’s complete revision undermines their political position dramatically. Displaying respect for the Founders’ ideals and creating the conditions whereby their work might be entirely demolished are mutually exclusive.” – National Constitutional Center [Header taken […]

Carlos Martinez, Constitutional Conservative, I have an answer for you! Ted Cruz to announce…

by Skip March 22, 2015

Get yourself some Bill O’Brien. Why?  Liberals will bleed out their eyes and spit on their keyboards in a demented race to refute anything this man says.  (And so will establishment Republicans.)

However, I bet that Presidents Dole, McCain, and Romney disagree with Senator Ted Cruz

by Skip January 13, 2015

I just don’t understand why, though… Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, reiterated Tuesday that he believes the GOP has a track record of failure when the party nominates a presidential candidate from the “mushy middle.” “There are a lot of folks in Washington who argue that the way Republicans should win is that they should […]

GrokTALK! – Drive the TEA Party Out?

by Steve MacDonald December 17, 2014
Thumbnail image for GrokTALK! – Drive the TEA Party Out?

GOP leadership gets fingered for playing at RINO King maker in the NH House. Was it all part of a plan to drive the grassroots out of the party? How does that affect elections? Does the establishment even care or are they content to hang on to enough power to horse trade for favors? We’ve […]

Jeb Bush, may I introduce you to two NH candidates…

by Skip December 16, 2014

No, seriously, with each passing day this sounds more like Huntsman II. But with lots, lots, lotsmore money involved. But before pursuing the presidency, Mr. Bush is grappling with the central question of whether he can prevail in a grueling primary battle without shifting his positions or altering his persona to satisfy his party’s hard-liners. In conversations […]

Wink wink nudge nudge…

by Susan Olsen December 8, 2014

So what if the whole Jassper kerfuffle was just a head fake? What if the NH GOP RINO plan all along was to throw conservatives under the bus at the opening bell, disenfranchise them for the session and try to neutralize their expected opposition to McAyotte in 2016? And, on the home front,  riddle me this. […]

Liberals vs Conservatives…

by Skip November 28, 2014

Like the cake shop owner that folks have raised over $230,000 to rebuild her store.  Yet, there are liberals out there that ARE defending the rioters.  They show their disrespect for others and their private property – and feel good about it. (H/T: Liberal Logic 101)

What Is it That Liberals Are So Afraid Of?

by Steve MacDonald September 22, 2014
Thumbnail image for What Is it That Liberals Are So Afraid Of?

Why are liberals so afraid of conservative women? “Now, I’m no reflexive Palin-defender, …But more than anything … I’m struck by how she causes people with progressive tendencies to lose their ever-living minds.“ I’m honestly wondering why, though. Why are we such a threat? Is it the power of our non-barren wombs? Is it the […]

Yes, Reince Priebus, that’s just about right….let’s talk price

by Skip August 8, 2014

Watching FoxNews “Special Report” is a staple for me – while it seems that they do try to report the news fairly straight up (yes, sometimes shaded a bit or bit more to the Right – let’s be honest here, as do the others shade (or in the case of MSNBC, leap) to the Left), it […]

Erstwhile 2016 Democrat Prez Candidate thanks Establishment Republicans for doing Democrats’ dirty work

by Skip July 18, 2014

Irony; Hillary Clinton thanks the Jr. Partners of the Democrat Party for doing the Democrats’ dirty work.  She knows EXACTLY – and GOP Establishment wing of the GOP can’t deny it as they made big deals of what they were going to do to Conservative and TEA Party candidates.  And more than a few cases […]

Signs The Orange One Is Untethered from Reality

Thumbnail image for Signs The Orange One Is Untethered from Reality

I used to think the Orange One was just another morally corrupt, empty headed politician seeking self aggrandizement at the expense of his neighbors, constituents and the American people at large. I still do think that. But I also think he’s completely out of touch, not just with his own constituents, and not just with […]

Notable Quote – Kyle Becker

by Skip April 25, 2014

“…What makes Constitutional conservatives different from progressives is that they do not desire to rule their political opposition or otherwise impose their will on their fellow citizens. Instead, most conservatives want to restore the nation to its Constitutional foundations, establish fiscal responsibility in government, reinstate the free market economic principles that allowed the majority of […]

Conservatives are for You, Progressive Politicians are for Themselves

by Don March 16, 2014

Conservatives want the very best for everyone. We want people to be free, happy, healthy, independent, safe, financially secure, and to feel they are leading lives of accomplishment by providing for their families and contributing to others. These blessings are enabled and fostered by Conservative policies. Everyone applauds Bono’s humanitarian efforts in Africa. Bono realized […]

by Susan Olsen February 11, 2014

“Time and again, year after year, the Republican leadership in the House and Senate has come to grassroots conservatives, and Tea Party supporters pleading for our money, our volunteers, our time, our energy and our votes. In return they have repeatedly promised not just to stop the liberal assault on our freedoms and our national […]

Equality: How Liberals think Conservatives see it – Part III

by Skip November 22, 2013

A great graphic that I’ve chopped up a bit – last Part  tonite For Progressives, “Equality” seems to be the driving force – everyone MUST be equal no matter what area of life is being viewed.  Anything that promotes or allows “inequality” must be stamped out.  Freedom is reserved for the realm of “free from […]

Notable Quote – Jonah Goldberg

by Skip November 8, 2013

The difference, however, is that conservatives tend to see government as a necessary evil, and therefore see policymaking with some humility. Liberals tend to see government as a necessary good, and see ordering people to do things “for their own good” as a source of pride, even hubris. From a conservative perspective, telling people how […]

I heard the John Wayne interview on the way to work Friday. I was struck by the striking similarities between then and now.

Pork scraps.  Ouch. ‘The GOP is not, in any meaningful sense, a conservative, first-principles, Constitutionalist party — and unless it’s subsumed by the Tea Party, it never will be. Rather, it’s content to be the lesser half of the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party as long as it can collect some of the pork scraps from […]

Progressives hate it when Conservatives take over their church

And make no mistake, to Progressives, politics IS a religion!  This is the post that I read from while we were yakking with Bill O’Brien during GrokTALK!
