  • Texas Republican Ted Poe Quits Freedom Caucus Over Their #NeverTrump Intransigence

    03/26/2017 4:48:17 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 43 replies
    Texas Republican Congressman Ted Poe has announced he is giving up membership in Hillary’s Favorite Caucus over their unwillingness to support President Trump: “I have resigned from the House Freedom Caucus,” Poe said in a statement. “In order to deliver on the conservative agenda we have promised the American people for eight years, we must come together to find solutions to move this country forward. Saying no is easy, leading is hard, but that is what we were elected to do. Congressman Poe’s exit from #NeverTrump leaves 29 remaining members.

    The Internal Revenue Service will propose new guidelines next year that would cap the amount of political activity allowed for tax-exempt advocacy groups, according to the agency’s commissioner. The new plan, the agency’s second attempt at writing guidelines for so-called social welfare groups, could be a game-changer for organizations such as Americans for Prosperity, part of a conservative network supported by Charles and David Koch, and the League of Conservation Voters, a group on the left. Campaign-finance watchdogs have complained that a growing number of nonprofits are using “dark money” to influence elections, since the existing 501(c)(4) rules allow them...

    "...It’s past time true conservatives reject these organizations. Stop sending them money, burn your memberships cards, and join organizations that actually represent your values. instead of supporting the Chamber of Commerce, support the Club for Growth. Instead of supporting National Right to Life, support the National Pro-Life Alliance. Instead of suporting the NRA, support Gun Owners of America and the National Association for Gun Rights. These are uncompromising organizations with plans for action...."

    House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA02) isn't even trying to hide his anti-conservative efforts any more. VIrginia conservatives are now publicaly calling him out for helping the moderate GOP-E group, Republican Mainstreet PAC, raise money to defeat the Tea Party. This Virginia Vision Action PAC opens up a big can of whoop a** on Cantor with a heaping helping of daming facts. Watch the video ad here.

    American Thinker ^ | 1/20/2014 | Rick Moran
    That's the title of a new book by Fred Jerome, a compilation of essays from these and other noteworthies: This anthology features essays by revolutionary thinkers, activists, and artists-including Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore, civil rights activist Angela Davis, incarcerated journalist Mumia Abu Jamal, and economist Rick Wolff- addressing various aspects of a new society and, crucially, how to get from where we are now to where we want to be, living in a society that is truly fair and just. I suppose that's one way to describe their vision. I might ask the question, "fair and just for whom"?...

    Senate Conservatives Fund ^ | 12/17/13 | Senate Conservatives Fund
    House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) joined Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) last week in declaring war on conservatives. John Boehner called conservatives "ridiculous" for opposing the budget agreement that increases spending, raises taxes, and funds Obamacare while Mitch McConnell previously called us stupid "traitors" who should be locked in a bar and "punched in the nose." These Republican leaders are attacking conservatives because they don't like it when the grassroots hold them accountable. Unfortunately, their attacks go beyond words. A top conservative aide in the House was fired last week for opposing John Boehner's budget and Mitch McConnell has...

    Conservative activists are hitting back. More than 50 high profile conservatives signed onto a statement Wednesday responding to both House Speaker John Boehner’s harsh words for conservative groups earlier in the day and to the firing of the Republican Study Committee’s long-time executive director Paul Teller. “It is clear that the conservative movement has come under attack on Capitol Hill today,” the statement reads.
  • Vanity: Create a website that catalogs repression against conservatives

    I posted the Politico story a couple days ago about here how Sharyl Attkisson has had strange computer problems ever since she started reporting things unfriendly to the Obamunist regime. That started more than one response from people here who had experienced bizarre behavior from the goverment of a repressive nature. For instance, one commenter noted: Welcome to the world of the “birthers”, Sharyl. All the corrupt tactics we “birthers” were ridiculed for mentioning because it was too “conspiratorial” are now wide out in the open. What still remains hidden to the public is what these tactics are supposed to...

    The Other McCain ^ | May 19, 2012 | Robert Stacy McCain
    Federal tax forms filed by convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin’s tax-exempt non-profit Justice Through Music Project (JTMP) show that the 501(c)3 group collected $1.8 million in gifts, grants and other contributions during its first six years of operation. An analysis using database research indicates that more than $300,000 of that sum came in the form of grants from tax-exempt foundations, including the George Soros-connected Tides Foundation, the Fidelity Investments Charitable Gift Fund, the Barbara Streisand Foundation, and the Heinz Family Foundation, connected to Democrat Sen. John Kerry’s wife. Convicted of multiple federal felonies in connection with a string of 1978 bombings...

    Michael Long, chairman of the Conservative Party of New York, is urging fellow conservatives not to contribute to the National Republican Congressional Committee. His complaint: The NRCC is supporting the Republican candidate in New York’s 23rd Congressional District, who he says is out of step with GOP values. The Republicans have nominated centrist State Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava as their candidate in the special election to be held on Nov. 3. In response, the Conservative Party nominated its own candidate, local accountant Doug Hoffman. Hoffman has been getting some traction, winning endorsements from several conservative groups and garnering 16% support in...

    I think we all realize that our open southern border is a real problem. Illegal aliens are raping, murdering, stealing our identities and assaulting our citizenry, not to mention sucking up welfare dollars by the billions and devastating our medical facilities and our economy in general. What do we hear from the media? We need the illegal aliens here, the Mexicans are doing the jobs that Americans won’t do. Well, for once, the media is right. But it’s not picking cabbage or washing dishes that Americans won’t do, Americans have always done that. So what job won’t Americans do? There...

    Barry, it's impossible to ignore the ongoing discussion and renewed calls from members of Congress to bring back the Fairness Doctrine or what many are saying will be legislation that will go by a different name.  As we've discussed before , the Fairness Doctrine is an antiquated Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rule dating back to the 1940s that was abandoned in 1987 during the Reagan administration.   In theory, the Fairness Doctrine was designed to enhance political discourse by requiring television and radio broadcast stations to "cover vitally important controversial issues of interest in their communities" and "provide a reasonable opportunity for...

  • Alexandra Pelosi Oozes Elitism in Interview About Her 'Angry Conservatives' Documentary

    NewsBusters ^ | February 17, 2009 | P.J. Gladnick
    The Alexandra Pelosi (daughter of Nancy) documentary, "Right America: Feeling Wronged," premeried on HBO last night. One word perfectly describes it: "tedious." Over and over and over again, Pelosi tries to hammer home the point that conservatives are angry because they just don't know what is best for them. And what is best is least in Pelosi's opinion. Overall, her documentary offers very little insight except for the fact that Pelosi thinks socialism is misunderstood by the "unenlightened" yahoos. However, a Salon.Com interview with her about the documentary reveals quite a lot of insight into the incredible elitism of...

    Limbaugh will not be charged over Viagra By BRIAN SKOLOFF, Associated Press Writer 13 minutes ago Rush Limbaugh will not face criminal charges after authorities found he had a bottle of Viagra that was apparently prescribed to someone else, prosecutors said Wednesday. Limbaugh, 55, was detained for more than three hours at Palm Beach International Airport on June 26 after he returned on his private plane from a vacation in the Dominican Republic. Customs officials found Viagra in his bag, but his name wasn't on the prescription, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. Limbaugh's lawyer, Roy Black, has...

    Posted on Mon, Mar. 17, 2003 Appoint State BOE The old adage "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" does not apply to the State Board of Education. The board is broken, as it often is hamstrung by ideological divides and agendas. And the Senate Education Committee needs to vote this week on how to fix it. Several reform proposals are before the committee. Our preference is creating a governor-appointed Board of Education, similar to the Board of Regents. Such a change would elevate the board's stature and the quality of its members. Restructuring would take a constitutional amendment, requiring...
