I'm a staunch Republican and a politics junkie who was recently the Executive Director for the Dauphin County Republican Committee in Harrisburg. Before that, I interned with the Republican Party of Pennsylvania in the summer of 2011 and Mary Pat Christie, First Lady of NJ, within the Office of the Governor of NJ in 2010. I was responsible for updating his personal contact list. My first political internship was with Tom Kean Jr's. U.S. Senate campaign in 2006.

Why Hello G.I. Jane

Why Hello G.I. Jane

As Bridget Johnson tattled this morning, polls show support for women in combat.  There has been a lot of discussion regarding Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta lifting the ban on women in combat positions.  As Fox News posted on January 24: The change would open hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs to women. Panetta […]

Roe at 40: A Discussion with Live Action's Lila Rose

Roe at 40: A Discussion with Live Action’s Lila Rose

On January 22, the United States celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case, which legalized abortion in all fifty states.  In doing so, the Court usurped a developing consensus amongst the state legislatures on the issue, and violated the principle of federalism that should guide how we enact policy in […]

Whoops! New NY Gun Law Forgot To Exempt Cops On High-Capacity Mags

Whoops! New NY Gun Law Forgot To Exempt Cops On High-Capacity Mags

There’s a reason why moving slow on legislation is good.  If it’s too big, or you do it too fast, you often complicate the problem.  New York has just passed the most stringent anti-gun laws on the books.  Yes, government did something! However, as progressives crack open the champagne, they forgot to exempt law enforcement […]

Never Put The Bill of Rights on a Graduated Scale

Never Put The Bill of Rights on a Graduated Scale

I’ve seen Facebook statuses from some of my liberal friends that go like this: First Amendment ≠ Second Amendment.  No. There should be equal advocacy for honoring the entire Bill of Rights in American political discourse. Only liberals seem to put things on graduated scale.  It makes things more palatable to their base to swallow, […]

What Did Ed Rendell Say?

What Did Ed Rendell Say?

After the heinous shooting in Newtown, CT, it never ceases to amaze me how the political left continues to salivate over the tragedy, and keep the gun control dialogue alive.  They must be desperate.  After all, the number of gun control mentions in the news decreased dramatically after the holidays.  It’s not resonating.  However, some […]

Stephens: ' [Hagel] Confirmation Process Should Be Illuminating'

Stephens: ‘ [Hagel] Confirmation Process Should Be Illuminating’

Chuck Hagel, former Senator of Nebraska, has been tapped to head the Department of Defense.  He’s a Republican, who vociferously criticized the Bush administration during the Iraq War – and equated ‘The Surge’ as the biggest foreign policy blunder since Vietnam.  I also think Iraq was more of a distraction, than brilliant strategic thinking – […]

Dems Gain the Voter ID Edge, Again

Dems Gain the Voter ID Edge, Again

The pendulum in the war between liberals and conservatives continues to swing with Democrats regaining the voter ID edge in the aftermath of the 2012 election.  According to Mike Flynn of Breitbart, he wrote today that this shouldn’t be a surprise. A new survey by Gallup shows Democrats regaining their edge in party identification over the GOP. […]

The Journal News Doxes (possible) NY Handgun Owners

The Journal News Doxes (possible) NY Handgun Owners

(Westchester County, NY) Watch out for those spooky gun owners!  At least that’s what The Journal News wants you to think when they published the names and addresses of everyone with a handgun permit in Westchester and Rockland counties. Journal News released the Google Map, which doxed these people, through an affiliate site called lohud.com on […]

The Progressives Push For New "Assault" Weapons Ban Is Bad Policy

The Progressives Push For New “Assault” Weapons Ban Is Bad Policy

I stand firm with my fellow members at the National Rifle Association.  I couldn’t be more proud to be part of an organization that defends the Second Amendment, which is one of the most important rights within our Constitution.  Over the past forty-eight hours, the NRA has been slammed for being somehow complicit in the […]

Have you bought your 'abornament' yet?

Have you bought your ‘abornament’ yet?

Yes, abortion rights activists have reached a new level of depravity. Apparently, as everyone indulges in the holiday spirit, the pro-choice camp decided to create abortion ornaments – or ‘abornaments’ – to be part of the commemoration of the birth of Christ. The fact that pro-choice Americans threw this in the face of those who […]

I'm waiting for liberals to make their own 47 percent comment on guns

I’m waiting for liberals to make their own 47 percent comment on guns

In the wake of the Newtown shootings, the left is clamoring for more gun control.  They want to ban assault weapons – which is liberal speak for scary guns – and do something about high-capacity magazines because they incentivize us to be mean, vicious, and violent.  However, as John Fund noted in National Review, it’s time […]

Abject union thuggery

Abject union thuggery

We’ve all seen the video of the Lansing, Michigan union protests.  They’re mad that Gov. Rick Snyder passed a right-to-work law, which would curtail the power unions have in the state.  It’s Wisconsin reloaded.  However, the level of thuggery and violence has reached a whole new level.  Union supporters thought that they could really make […]

A second shooting was stopped on the same day as Newtown tragedy

A second shooting was stopped on the same day as Newtown tragedy

While a horrific tragedy occurred in Newtown, CT, a similar event was stopped in Oklahoma.  Sammie Eaglebear Chavez, who is only 18, plotted an attack on his high school in Bartlesville, according to Fox News. An arrest affidavit says Chavez tried to convince other students to help him lure students into the auditorium, chain the […]

Repeat after me: gun control isn't the answer

Repeat after me: gun control isn’t the answer

The tragedy in Newton, CT should shake us all to our very core. Of the 26 who were killed yesterday, 20 of them were children. It’s evil. It’s grotesque. And I’m sure many mothers and fathers were holding their children a little tighter last night. Sadly, for twenty families, that will no longer be possible. […]

Hip/hop artist and his legion of morons spew hate at Michelle Malkin

Hip/hop artist and his legion of morons spew hate at Michelle Malkin

Here we go again. Conservative blogger and Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin has reaped a whirlwind of hate tweets from fans of hip/hop artist The Game.  It’s due to the cover art of his new album Jesus Piece, which features a depiction of Christ that some consider blasphemous.  Malkin had a post about it on her […]
