    King, who has been active in Cuyahoga County Republican politics since 2001, explained that the establishment Republicans are trying to infiltrate the local county party in an effort to help Dolan in the upcoming 2024 Senate race’s Republican primary after his failed attempt in 2022 when he came in third behind now-Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) in the GOP primary. “The activists and the conservatives, you know, we’ve been fighting for a long time,” King acknowledged. “We just stopped a lobbyist from taking over the Ohio Republican Party. There’s a huge fight between the lobbyists and the conservatives in the Ohio...
  • McCarthy puts his conservative critics on Rules panel in the wake of Speaker fight

    Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) appointed two of his conservative critics to the House Rules Committee on Monday following this month’s protracted Speaker’s race, when the GOP leader agreed to increase the number of hard-line Republicans on the panel. McCarthy appointed GOP Reps. Ralph Norman (S.C.) and Chip Roy (Texas) to the powerful panel, giving them a seat on the committee that controls how bills are debated on the House floor after the pair voted against McCarthy’s Speakership bid on the first 11 ballots earlier this month.
  • A Florida bakery kicked out a Black man: But No, this isn’t some story about an old-fashioned, KKK-style racist.

    Gianno Caldwell is one of the bravest people in America. How do I know that? Because he’s an openly conservative Black man, a Fox news political analyst and political podcaster, an enemy of PC culture, and the author of a book advising Republicans how to bring disenchanted Black Democrats back to the Republican party. Those views saw him kicked out of a North Miami bakery. For those unfamiliar with Caldwell, who grew up on Chicago’s southside, once Barack Obama’s political stomping grounds, here’s the key paragraph from Caldwell’s website bio:Gianno’s first book, TAKEN FOR GRANTED: How Conservatism Can Win Back...

    Gianno Caldwell is a Fox News contributor, author and activist. Raised on the south side of Chicago, Caldwell often credits his upbringing with helping him to be resilient and driven. When his teenage brother was murdered by random gunfire on a Chicago street corner one Friday morning last summer, Caldwell became a passionate spokesperson for justice. In particular, Caldwell has railed against the lax crime policies of liberal legislators and prosecutors in cities across the nation. He even testified in front of Congress recently, as someone who has been directly affected by the unchecked violence plaguing American cities. Caldwell...
  • Hung Cao Could Be the Republican Who Retires Tim Kaine in 2024

    Cao was a great candidate for the House, and he might be Republicans' best hope to flip a Senate seat and send Kaine out to pasture. As many learned during his 2022 campaign, a four-year-old Cao and his family fled to the United States as refugees from communism just before the fall of Saigon. He then went on to graduate from the Naval Academy and become a Navy Captain (now retired) working with Special Forces around the world. "The U.S. gave me a home, a flag to stand under, and an opportunity," Cao noted during his run. "I’ve been committed...

    The House Republican Steering Committee on Tuesday selected several conservative firebrands to serve on the Oversight Committee during the 118th Congress, including multiple members who previously had their committee assignments stripped by House Democrats during the previous Congress. The GOP-led House Oversight Committee will be composed of Reps.

    The College Fix ^ | 01/02/2023 | Jennifer Kabbany
    A professor recently began to advance his idea on how to combat onerous progressive ideologies on campus, encouraging students to report professors who bash Christians, white people and conservatives to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Title IX offices for investigation. Conservative students should file complaints for speech that attacks their identity – especially when it comes from a professor, said Adam Ellwanger, a professor of English at the University of Houston-Downtown, in a recent telephone interview with The College Fix. “There is a perception that the DEI and Title IX offices exist just to support leftist activism, but there is...

    The Washington Times ^ | January 4, 2023 | Cal Thomas
    The new slim Republican majority in the House of Representatives lacks something besides its slim majority and the battle over leadership positions. It lacks intellectual depth. The Reagan administration may have been the last one to challenge Americans to think for themselves, and for that matter, just to think. Perhaps this lack of thinking and intellectual depth in our politics is caused by instruments and websites that do the thinking for us. We now tune in to whatever newspaper, cable network or website reinforces our beliefs and care little about how ideas were developed, whether they work and who benefits...

    John McEntee, the former director of presidential personnel under President Trump, recalled having a difficult time trying to connect with fellow conservatives in a big blue state and wanting to create a solution to his problem. “So I’m from Southern California. Everyone says, ‘How could you live there?’” McEntee said in an appearance on “Mornings with Maria” Thursday. “Some of the most conservative people I know live there, we’re just having trouble finding each other because of the cultural pressure. So if you’re in New York, L.A., D.C., pretty much any major city in this country, you just kind of...

    Majority of students opposed to bringing conservative speakers on campus, report found.. College students at America’s largest 203 colleges continue to censor themselves inside and outside of the classroom, a national survey of 45,000 students concluded. Students play a significant role in censoring free speech on campus, but colleges can enforce policies that protect it, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression’s third annual College Free Speech Rankings, released in September, for the 2022-23 school year. Adam Goldstein, FIRE’s vice president of research, told The College Fix in an email on December 16 that the wider culture has...

    Independent journalist Bari Weiss revealed on Thursday how Twitter used blacklists to limit the visibility of tweets coming from conservative users in the latest disclosure of the social media giant’s internal operations. Right-wing talk show host Dan Bongino, Stanford University’s anti-COVID lockdown advocate Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, and conservative activist Charlie Kirk were among the users targeted for suppression by Twitter, according to Weiss. Weiss’s tweets followed Friday’s bombshell revelations by fellow independent journalist Matt Taibbi, whose Twitter posts were promoted by new company owner Elon Musk as “what really happened with the Hunter Biden suppression story by Twitter.”

Punchbowl News reported on Thursday that McCarthy “helped tweak and build support for” some of the key provisions conservative members proposed in the “internal GOP conference debate” on Wednesday.
  • WHERE ARE THE CONSERVATIVES?

    I just had a thought while reading about the shooting in Colorado. Where are the conservatives? As the years go by, we - fellow conservatives and Freepers - watch as liberals, progressives, socialists, and statists take over American institutions. School board, teachers inside the schools, AG's throughout the states, social media sites, orgranizations such as Ford Foundation, Nobel committees, inside sports organizations, inside big businesses, and so on. As these anti-American/Constitutional forces move in, where are the conservatives? Where do they go? What organizations do they belong to and/or control? Even on FR, you have voices that sound more anti-American/Constitutional...

    Millions of households face a cost of living crunch in April with average energy bills rising by £900 as the government's cap ends - and council tax almost certain to soar. Chancellor Jeremy Hunt is poised to confirm the end of the blanket subsidies on energy prices when he delivers a grim Autumn Statement on Thursday. It will be part of an 'eye-watering' package of savings and tax rises to fill a black hole of up to £60 millionbillion [sic] in the government finances.

Governors Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Ron DeSantis of Florida, Jared Polis of Colorado, Brad Little of Idaho, Bill Lee of Tennessee, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, Brian Kemp of Georgia, and Greg Abbott of Texas were all ranked in the top 10 of conservative governors in a Laffer-ALEC analysis last year and coasted to reelection on Tuesday.
