    Earlier today EW Jackson hosted a conference call with Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz. The open call was part of a weekly feature for Jackson and his organization STAND.Cruz began with opening remarks on his position on religious freedom and how he'll push back against the PC police whenever they try to admonish someone for being religious. Cruz then touched on his continued fight to defend traditional marriage. His opening was short and narrowly focused as he seemed genuinely more interested in taking questions than filling the time up with prepared talking points, which caught me as unexpected and a...
  • Watch: Most Journos Fail to Stand for Anthem at Democratic Debate

    LAS VEGAS — Hundreds of journalists declined to stand during the national anthem at the Democratic debate at the Wynn Las Vegas, with only 20 out of nearly 400 rising from their seats, some recognizable from conservative media outlets. There are differing views as to the proper convention for a televised national anthem, though some suggest that when the anthem is played at a public event, even on television, those present should stand–even if they are observers. At the Republican presidential debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California last month, few journalists stood for the anthem
  • Conservative Black Leaders: Obama’s Likening Selma to Gay Activism ‘Ridiculous,’ ‘An Insult’

    Conservative black leaders are calling President Barack Obama’s likening of homosexual activism to the 1965 Selma to Montgomery civil rights march “ridiculous” and “an insult.” […] “I think it’s a problem not only for the president but for a lot of people, who are deeply misguided, to compare people who are protesting to have their behavior, their sexual behavior, recognized as some kind of civil right or for that matter civil virtue and compare that to people who are trying to vote, trying to go into a restaurant and get a sandwich, are trying to stay in a hotel overnight...
  • Politico: Conservative Stand Against Obama's Executive Amnesty Leaves White House in Disarray

    The White House must have thought Republicans in Congress would fall in line behind Speaker John Boehner and let President Barack Obama do what he’s “gotta do” on executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. Politico reports that as Republicans have instead organized behind incoming Senate Budget Committee chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) to oppose the President, the Democrats and White House—including Obama himself—are showing signs of weakness. Obama showed his frustration during a press conference in Myanmar on Friday, Politico’s Seung Min Kim and Carrie Budoff Brown wrote late Friday night. “They [Republicans] have the ability to fix the...

    COMMONERS President Obama went for a walk last week, and even mingled with some commoners beyond the White House walls. The “surprise” occasion was (shockingly) captured on camera and widely disseminated; the White House posted the “raw video” here. Most of the commoners were thrilled to encounter the president walking amongst them. One woman was “so excited,” and remarked that it was “like the best day of my life.” One bro fist pumped while yelling: “America! Freedom! Peace! Hope! And charity! [sic]” But not everyone was so impressed. At the 2:41 mark, you can see some disgruntled workers who are...

    The Senate Judiciary postponed their hearing on "Stand Your Ground" laws on Tuesday morning, after the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard one day earlier. "Stand Your Ground" came into national prominence last year after George Zimmerman shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida, where the law allows people to use deadly force to defend themselves. Martin's mother was expected to testify, along with the parents of Jordan Davis, another unarmed, black teenager killed in Florida. RT's Meghan Lopez talks to Jordan's father Ron Davis and his lawyer, John Phillips, about the controversial legislation.

    A source with intimate information about the events that happened on the ground in Benghazi the night the U.S. Consulate and the CIA annex was attacked by terrorists told Breitbart News that, ultimately, only the President of the United States, or someone acting on his authority, could have prevented Special Forces either on the ground or nearby from helping those Americans who were under deadly assault. According to the source, when the attack on the Consulate occurred, a specific chain of command to gain verbal permission to move special-forces in must have occurred. SOCAFRICA commander Lieutenant Col. Gibson would have...

    Chick-fil-A reported record sales last Wednesday as thousands showed support for owner Dan Cathy and his stance on Biblical marriage. However, while individual believers stood in long lines to publicly endorse God’s plan for the family and vent their frustration at the media’s criticism of Dan Cathy’s Biblical stance, a number of churches seemed to opt out of the conflict. While the mayors of three large cities and a few University administrators were publicly threatening to ban Chick-fil-A, and while the discussion was the hot news topic of the week, there were many ministers who said little or nothing at...

    DAYTONA BEACH -- Charles Robbins stumbled to his feet as someone pounded on his door. Outside the Woodland Avenue residence stood 24-year-old Tyler Orshoski, a career criminal who police believe was ready to strike again. The 82-year-old man grabbed a World War II-era Russian-built Tokerev, walked to the door and fired once. "I did what I had to do and I would do it again," the Daytona Beach man said. Minutes later, Orshoski lay dead on Robbins' porch. Robbins was never charged. The shooting is one of numerous killings in Volusia and Flagler counties from 2005 to 2012 carried out...

    McAllen, TX -- Gone are the days when a kid could make a few extra bucks by selling lemonade on the corner of their street. These days, it's against the law. A 12-year-old girl and her little brother were just trying to earn a few dollars for their two hermit crabs when a city code enforcement officer in Texas came and shut them down. The officer told their grandmother that the children needed a permit to sell lemonade, and their grandmother was ticketed for the offense. "I was mad," the 12-year-old said. "I don't understand why someone would want to...

    April 16, 2011 On This We Stand Jason McNew We must clearly articulate the precise philosophical doctrine of the Tea Party. Classical Liberalism, the political philosophy of The Founding Fathers, has yielded incredible planet-wide improvements in the human condition. Few politicians (and nearly no academics) understand this, nor are they able to articulate this truth in a meaningful way. Such is the theme of this speech, authored by me and given today at a Tea Party rally in Hanover, Pennsylvania (video here): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZbOuyhUbdE Given a forthright chronicle of man's history, both ancient and modern, we must somberly recognize that human...

    WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- Thirteen-year-old Chelsea Edwards says last weekend was the first time she ever tried her hand at a money-making venture. The seventh-grader at Feagin Mill Middle School says it wasn't too long though before a couple showed up and soured her first business experience. "The man bent down and seen the money jar, and he grabbed it," Edwards says, recalling what happened Saturday. Edwards says a man and woman had approached the stand she was running with her two friends. She says they started asking questions about the price of lemonade. That's when Edwards says the man...
