Conservatives Must Never Give Up. Never.

Posted: February 27, 2013 at 2:15 pm   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

On October 21st, 2010, Western Free Press—then a brand-new organization—covered the American Solutions event at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix. There were a number of powerful speakers, including then-candidate David Schweikert and American Solutions founder Newt Gingrich. The  event was memorable, but the highlight was the moment in Speaker Gingrich’s address when he spoke of Washington’s […]

Plotting the Future of California’s GOP

Posted: February 25, 2013 at 2:00 pm   /   Elections, Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Last month, I was invited to be on a panel at the bi-annual convention of the California Congress of Republicans.  This isn’t just a gathering of like-minded conservatives.  These are political activists whose lives are built around actually trying to wage successful campaigns in a state so blue, it could be renamed East Hawaii. In […]

Ten rules for advancing conservative and libertarian ideals

Posted: February 14, 2013 at 11:45 am   /   Features, Politics

Several days ago, I published The Key to Republican Victory (for real this time!). It features a fairly intense call to arms from David Horowitz, and a preamble that defends Horowitz’s approach. And the approach is certainly valid. When one is getting repeatedly struck in the face, it is reasonable to take all necessary steps to […]

More on “speech codes” on campus

Posted: January 31, 2013 at 4:45 pm   /   Politics, Videos

A few days ago, in Mommy, Why Do the Democrats Hate Freedom?, I concluded thusly: Why can’t we choose? If I am on a college campus—where the Democrats, statists, and the left reign supreme—why can’t I say what I want? Why do I have to go to a special “free speech zone”? In some places, […]

Obama’s money laundering operation in serious jeopardy

Posted: January 27, 2013 at 11:10 am   /   Elections, Politics

It was, rather, a money laundering operation. Obama and the Democrats took 800 billion dollars from taxpayers (and […]

We all know that whenever liberal politicians start insisting that guns are evil, it’s for the same reason that stage magicians employ patter, top hats and silk capes.  It’s done in order to distract us.  At present, Obama would like us to ignore the fact that thanks to the end of the payroll tax holiday […]

Mommy, Why Do the Democrats Hate Freedom?

Posted: January 15, 2013 at 8:35 am   /   Politics

We will, herebelow, use the term Democrats, but we could just as easily say statists, the left, Obama, etc. These are essentially interchangeable. Democrats love to portray themselves, and their policies, as being “for the people.” But if they truly cared about, loved, and respected us, don’t you think they would trust us more to […]
