Are Establishment Republicans Stupid, Or Do They Just Play Stupid After Being Elected to Office?

A few weeks ago Republicans (who run both houses of Congress, by the way) fully funded Obamacare for another year, and today House Republicans voted to repeal Obamacare in its entirety.  Stated differently, recently Republicans handed Obama the money to fully implement Obamacare (and in the process further destroy healthcare in America), yet today they symbolically voted to repeal Obamacare ...

Remembering Dr. King’s Struggle Against Gun Control

As we approach MLK day, we requested reprint permission from our friends at The Typical Shooter for this informative article. Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Like every year, there will be discussion of his life and achievements. I wish to tell a different story: the story of his struggle against racist gun control laws. Dr. King, who was ...

Someone Please Tell Obama That the Following Things Are Not “What We Are”

Right off the bat it must be said that none of Obama’s actions and policies are “what Americans are” as a nation.  The phrase “not what we are” is a popular one with our Barry as he tries to convince us that we should behave as a nation just as he declares we should, even though his actions are contrary ...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as Veterans center snubs Obama

I read about the obama regime edict that all veterans units refrain from saying “MERRY CHRISTMAS” but to instead to use the secular “happy holidays” greeting and to not display any Christmas decorations in public because it might “offend” someone. I am happy to report that the Claremore facility honored God by ignoring the asinine edict from dictator obama. There ...

‘Where White People Meet’ ad causing uproar

A billboard for dating website WhereWhitePeopleMeet.com on SR 201 in West Valley City, UTAH is getting a lot of attention. Utahn Michelle Dessau said “I just feel we should be past that whole mindset of staying within our own race and segregation pretty much,” but is political correctness causing an over-reaction? People date how and who they choose and if the market supports a ...

Making the World a Little Better in 2016

In spite of all the challenges and vicissitudes we’re facing domestically and globally this year, and the daunting challenges facing the country and our culture, there is much good that oftentimes escapes our notice. Sometimes as we review the year, both societally as well as personally, it can be a matter of perspective, whether we deem the glass half full, ...

What is the Place of Loyalty in Modern Politics?

What role should loyalty play in democratic politics? On the one hand, party systems are necessary to republicanism. They provide structure, put a face on distant and often shrouded political mechanization for voters, unite like-minded individuals around ideas and help them ensure they support policies that work best for them. But take this idea too far and politics becomes about ...

In Defense Of Capitalism: Earned Value Creates Better, Happier Lives

There’s a reason non-capitalist nations are so poor and have populations that are miserable, and why capitalist nations are wealthy and comfortable. The reason capitalism is successful anywhere it’s tried is that the money that makes manufacturers and small businesses wealthy is earned by them. This also applies to the employees of corporations who also earn the money they make ...

Engage: How to Talk Politics with Complete Strangers (Yes, you CAN do it!)

(TRS Lead writer – Gwendolyn Sims) In these chaotic, contradictory, and downright confusing times, I’m often asked how to talk politics with strangers. As conservatives, we are by nature, well, conservative, but that shouldn’t stop us from talking about what we stand for and what we believe. In fact, that unwillingness to articulate what and who we are, often works ...

What Is It With Hillary’s Videos and Obama’s Cable TV Remarks?

Usually politicians are clever enough to discuss believable things that make their point or that endear them with the public, but in the case of Hillary and Obama they are stuck on dumb and dumber, each with their own favorite lying subjects. These two leaders of the Democrat party are repeat, proven, pathological liars, and while they lie about a ...

Grinches Trying to Steal Christmas

It’s that wonderful time of year when pristine snow blankets the Rockies; decorated evergreens and colorful lights adorn most homes; people of all faiths welcome the appearance of Kris Kringle and the exchange of gifts; hearts of Christians turn to the birth of Messiah; and secularists and atheists play the Grinch role to stymie the festive season. Yes, regrettably, the ...

White Students Push Back

I find it pretty ironic that in the mid 1960’s and early 1970’s the big civil rights movement was trying to give blacks equal treatment, they wanted to make blacks equal to whites. Because of that Affirmative Action was introduced into our society, (which I am against I might add.) Blacks wanted to go everywhere that whites went and be ...

Liberals Love Government Power; Privately Owned Guns Oppose Government Power; So Liberals Oppose Guns

Ever wonder why liberals are so opposed to guns but don’t try to ban knives that kill people or jet aircraft that knock down skyscrapers, killing thousands?  And ever wonder why liberals are so intent on blaming inanimate objects like guns for crimes and not the human operators of the guns?  It’s because there are two basic sources of power ...

Radical Tolerance and the New Political Lexicon

Compromise in a free society should not come at the price of conscience. Too often nebulous ideas such as “civility” or “society” result in censorship, either people living in fear of upsetting people in proximity with their opinion and keeping quiet or, if they dare speak, being beat to death by the avenging angel of social justice, salivating from the ...
