Sen. MARTIN and Del. BELL win the CHESTERFIELD LINCOLN/REAGAN DINNER YESTERDAY!

I was invited by Senator Bell’s campaign to attend the Chesterfield Nottobenamed/Reagan Dinner.  It was a nice presentation with a great speech from Jim Kuhn, who worked for my hero from 1976 through the end of his second term (I am surprised I did not mob him like a rock star!) who wrote this book:  […]

“…FERROUS MATTER OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY…”

It looks like the heroes of my youth are fading off into the sunset.  But the ideas of Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II and Margaret Thatcher will endure forever. I could hardly improve upon the thousands of columns on the late PM but I honoured Baroness Thatcher by listening to this speech which could […]

Congressman Rigell (R-VA) Joins Obama and the Democrats in Calls for Higher Taxes

Another Virginia Congressman has turned his back on the Conservatives who put him into office. Congressman Scott Rigell is now the latest to justify expanding government through tax increases. And he has even adopted the Progressive’s “code word” for tax hikes calling them “revenue enhancements” to blur the truth. Rigell’s approach is to take away deductions […]

The Republican’s “Obama Lite” Candidate Loses (AGAIN!)

Insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results. And by that definition Republicans have suffered from insanity for the past two election cycles. John McCain was a horribly liberal candidate and Barack Obama handed him his head on a platter by being the bold colors to McCain’s pastel shades of Liberalism. […]

WSJ Blasts Top Senate Dem For Obstruction On Tax Reforms

In an editorial today, The Wall Street Journal editors takes a top Senate Democrat to task for a speech staking out a position that would sink tax reform efforts. They write, “The polls say voters want more bipartisanship, and one possibility in 2013 is tax reform that trades lower rates for fewer loopholes. Well, so much for that. […]

MUST SEE VIDEO: Jimmy Carter 2.0

It seems that Obama is now lifting speeches from fellow failed president Jimmy Carter. Keep in mind as you watch this video that Tim Kaine supports Obama 100%. (Kaine even resembles Jimmy Carter a bit, don’t you think?) This short video shows Carter and Obama giving the same speech. Stunning. Absolutely stunning. And keep in mind that […]

Tom White Endorses Mitt Romney for President in 2012!

Last night was a pretty big night for Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. He won the Illinois Primary by a pretty good margin.

SHOULD OXFORD UNIVERSITY have a CENTRE NAMED AFTER PM MARGARET THATCHER? NO! BUILD it at HILLSDALE COLLEGE INSTEAD!

There is a very thoughtful article right here in the UK Independent from Yasman Alibhai-Brown on the idea of a “centre” at Oxford University named after former PM Margaret Thatcher.  Alibhai-Brown feels that it would debase the university for it to take the money to do the center named after Baroness Thatcher: An academic centre […]

IF NEWT GINGRICH WINS THE GOP NOMINATION – he CANNOT (at this time) pick Governor McDonnell as his VP!

I wrote on this some time ago:  How Newt Gingrich is actually resident of Virginia.  When he set up his campaign, Georgia is his base of operations but he is legally a resident of Virginia.This ought to cause some soul searching among Virginia GOPers.  But it begs the question: Who might be Speaker Gingrich’s running […]
