Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small "L" libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America's Founders back into our culture again.

CAIR – even handed – NOT!

CAIR says that it is a civil rights group.  Google them – in the midst of their own proclamations of being nothing more than a civil rights group, lots of  stories will emerge that show a more thuggish nature, claiming wrongs done to Muslims every which way to Sunday, and showing behavior that demonstrates their …

Spineless whining!

CAIR (Council for American-Islamic Relations) has done it again.  Just as they have silenced talk show hosts and forced retractions from politicians, now they have gotten a blogger silenced by putting the muscle down on their hosting service.  While they style themselves as the largest Muslim civil rights organization in the USA, based on their …
