Will the Tea Party Support Romney?
By Tony Katz
With Rick Santorum out of the GOP race, Mitt Romney becomes the presumptive nominee. How will the Tea Party react? Tony can provide unique insight into this crucial development:
• What will the Tea Party do?
• What are the real problems with Romney?
• Where will the Tea Party be most effective?
• Does the Tea Party trust Romney?
• What happens after Election Day?
Santorum Exits Race
By Doug Johnson
Regardless of the reason Rick Santorum exited the GOP race, the fact is that he accomplished an amazing feat rising to a second place finish with virtually no money. Santorum brought to the table important issues, reminded us that principles are important, and showed us by his life that there are some things more important than power and position. Many of those issues will continue on to the GOP convention in Tampa, probably with some being adopted as parts of the GOP platform. And just because Rick is out of the race does not mean it’s over. Newt Gingrich is still holding on and may rise again like a phoenix from the ashes to have a significant impact on this contest. With Newt, you have to wait and see because even when he’s down, you can never be sure he is out. And with such a strong distaste for Romney on the part of many conservatives it is very possible that many of Santorum’s supporters may move their support to Newt Gingrich. It may be enough to make Newt a serious player at the GOP convention in August. [more...]
Time to Set the Tone for November in Wisconsin
By Dave Bego
Last August, Big Labor attempted to undo Gov. Scott Walker’s initiative to cure Wisconsin’s massive debt, incurred as a result of years of Big Labor collective bargaining gone wild. The plan was to recall votes on six state Senate Republicans in order to regain the majority in the Wisconsin senate, but the plan failed miserably. Big Labor was confident that the pressure created through its foot soldiers would encourage voters to oust all six Republicans. However, only two were defeated, leaving the majority of the state Senate to the Republican Party and preserving the Governor’s laws to reign in Big Labor and its collective bargaining monopoly. Now Big Labor is after Gov. Scott Walker in a recall election which is certainly the most important non-presidential election of the decade. [more...]
Ted Kennedy is Unlikely Hero
I was never a big fan of Ted Kennedy while he was alive and screwing over the taxpayers. But since his death, I’ve started to really appreciate the guy. He has managed to do in death what he never accomplished in life - become a hero and patriot. In essence, Ted Kennedy saved America and capitalism from Obama. His death changed the course of history; it opened the door for Scott Brown to become the new Massachusetts senator, the first Republican to win in almost half a century. That one gift from Kennedy deprived Obama of the 60th vote he needed in the U.S. Senate to push through every socialist program his little heart desired. So by dying, Ted Kennedy became the anti-Obama. [more...]
'Hunger Games' Star Jennifer Lawrence Hits PETA
By James Hirsen
Jennifer Lawrence, the newly minted Hollywood superstar of the blockbuster film “The Hunger Games,” recently made some distinctly right-of-center remarks in an interview that appears in the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine. Lawrence, who in “The Hunger Games” plays archer warrior Katniss, spoke about a scene in “Winter’s Bone,” a movie in which she previously appeared, which has her gutting a squirrel. Addressing the issue of whether or not the scene had been created by Hollywood special effects, Lawrence let her feelings be known about the animal rights organization, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). “I should say it wasn’t real, for PETA,” Lawrence said. “But screw PETA.” [more...]
