Soldier forbidden to read conservative literature while in Uniform A veteran member of the U.S. Army Band said he is facing retribution and punishment from the military for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his car, reading books written by conservative authors like Mark Levin and David Limbaugh, and serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at his promotion party.

In an earlier story we had mentioned that there were 32 African-Americans running under the Republican Banner during the 2010 Primary.
Although Most of the News has been about Florida’s Allen West and South Carolina’s Tim Scott, there are 12 other black GOP candidates looking to make history in this year’s midterms:
OP-ED by Kathryn L. Milliron Okay, if you’re like me, you are completely tired of all of the name calling and put downs that have been hurled at conservatives and independents in recent days. And I want to set a few things straight on behalf of a whole lot of the normal, average, everyday people living in the US. 1. Stop calling me racist if I don’t believe in the […]

Nearly thirty-two African-Americans are running this election season as Republicans. If you only watched the mainstream media, you would think there were only three: South Carolinas’ Tim Scott, Allen West of Florida, and Republican strategist Angela McGlowan of Mississippi. But there are 28 others who are running under the banner of Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the most since reconstruction. Many are running in the deep south and maybe I shouldn’t use this word, but the south appears to be more “progressive” than its northern neighbors.
Many of the candidates have been endorsed by their local teaparties and the always controversial former Vice-Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. Maybe that is the reason the media isn’t reporting on these candidates, their endorsements from the tea party movement doesn’t jive with their premise that the movement is racist because of their disagreement with President Obama’s policies. Maybe the real truth is the tea parties descent is about ideology and not the color of Obama’s skin.
The New York Times took a look at the many candidates of African descent who are running under the Republican banner. We have added the names of the candidates and a link to each so one can learn more about each of the candidate running this election season.

The can be no doubt that two things are true. The […]

Tim has a remarkable success story. He grew up in poverty and was raised by a single-mom who struggled to provide. With help from a mentor and his brave mom, Tim learned to appreciate the value of hard work and American opportunity. He went […]
Dana Loesch, a radio host and blogger who has topped the 20 Hottest Conservative Women in the New Media list two years running, is in Playboy. She jokes, “I can’t wait to tell my Baptist mother that her daughter is in Playboy.” No, she’s not pictured nude. Indeed, she doesn’t appear to be pictured at all. Apparently, the “articles” which everyone claims as their reason for reading Playboy actually do […]
