CPAC 2010 Day One – Recap


The first day of CPAC 2010 offered up an exciting melange of prominent conservative voices.  In addition, the diversity of viewpoints comprising the modern conservative movement was evidenced by the organizations who had purchased booth space in the exhibition hall here in Washington’s Marriott Wardman Park Hotel.  Groups as disparate as GOProud (a gay conservative [...]

CPAC – Senator Jim DeMint continues…


“Every Congressman and Senator takes an oath to protect and defend the Constitution.  I think it’s time they started taking that oath seriously.  Freedom includes the freedom for mismanaged institutions to fail.  There is a battle raging in Washington now between those who want to defend the Constitution and those who wish to disregard it.
I [...]

Marco Rubio Kicks off CPAC


CPAC’s kickoff speaker this morning is Marco Rubio, who is running for the Senate from the state of Florida and is a rapidly rising star in the Republican Party, here is some of what he had to say:
“We will do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes to defeat radical Islam.  We will [...]

Reality-Denial Obama-Style: The SOTU Address


Anyone who managed to watch even part of Obama’s first State of the Union address tonight got a taste of just how completely out-of-touch this president really is with the American people.  While we are suffering through what can credibly be said to be the worst economic downturn since the 1930s, he spoke of how [...]

Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Fellow Zinnophiles Rant; America & Her Admirers Gag


I must admit I approached The History Channel’s presentation of “The People Speak” with a healthy dose of skepticism.  After all, a ‘documentary’ based upon the views of Marxist, revisionist American historian Howard Zinn isn’t exactly what I’d call a “must-see” event.  What I witnessed certainly lived down to my low expectations. One hare-brained actor [...]

Why Are Conservatives So Quick To Eat Their Own?


I must admit that this entire controversy (conservative feeding frenzy?) surrounding Governor Mike Huckabee’s commutation of Maurice Clemmons’ sentence back in 2000 makes me a bit queasy.  Am I the only one that thinks the vitriol and condemnation of Huckabee over this is way over-the-top?  Let’s take a step back from the beat-down for just [...]

Grabar: Conservatives, End the Apology Tour


My good friend, English professor Mary Grabar, has an excellent article published on the American Thinker website which I encourage Newsreal readers to study in depth.  It is a learned examination of the currently-fashionable idea that conservatives must distance themselves from “extremists” within their ranks and also a discussion of the origins of this unfortunate [...]

Obama on Ft. Hood: Cover Your Ears & Close Your Eyes


President Obama took all of about one minute and 30 seconds on Friday morning to comment on Thursday’s Ft. Hood massacre before moving on to comments regarding the economy.  We were admonished thus:
“I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.”
Exactly what IS one to conclude about this incident in which [...]

The Death of Obamamania


Despite the fact that Obama’s job approval rating is reported to be near 54%, this did not translate into Democrat victories in either Virginia or New Jersey last night.  In fact, according to polls, his approval ratings with regard to the economy, health care, and the war in Afghanistan are all below 50%.  Last night [...]
