Missouri News Round Up

Lefty Blogger Political Incest

Since the November elections, Missouri state government has been infested with former left-wing bloggers, according to 24th State.  More news on the revolving door between FiredUp and Nixon/Carnahan junta to follow on 24th State blog.

Conservative Heartland Leadership Conference

Dana Loesch and Bill Hennessy were privileged to participate in a Social Media Marketing panel at the Conservative Heartland Leadership Conference held at the Millennium Hotel June 3 and 4.  Ed Martin of American Issues Project masterfully pulled together the first annual even which could, someday, rival C-PAC.   Watch the CHLC web site to stay up-to-date on next year’s conference.  If you can’t attend, send a high schooler or college student.

Home School Heroes

Dana Loesch and others helped defeat a plot to harrass home schoolers in the Missouri legislature.  Congratulations, home schoolers, for this victory.  We should all take this as a reminder that the statists will never stop in their attempts to thwart our liberty. ( A well educated electorate is the last thing the left wants.  )  About 2,000 home schoolers turned out at the Capitol to fight the legislation.

Rumor: Jay Nixon Shutting Down Transparency

Rumor has it that Governor Jay Nixon plans to shut down the Missouri Accountability Portal to hide his fiscial activities.  The Portal, hailed as the international model of government transparency, allows citizens to see the check register of every penny spent by state government.  Governor Matt Blunt started the portal as tool allow the people to police Missouri government, so why on Earth would Nixon close it?  Tea Partiers should write the Governor and their local newspapers, radio and television stations demanding more transparency, not less.
