And, thanks to Jeffrey Lord, we can remember Kemp’s finest moments of civil rights activism: Read more →

Spy Tactics for Conservatives: 7 Easy Steps to Protect Yourself

You are a target. They want you dead. You are a conservative activist. They call themselves “progressives.” You want to live. And you want to remain active in politics. They want you dead.

It’s a Beautiful Spring Day, And Dellena Struggles to Stay In Business

We metDellena Jones during our first Ferguson BUYcott in August. Since then, St. Louis Tea Partier, Dottie Bailey, has made it her mission to help Dellena’s business survive and flourish. https://youtu.be/r-ye3nSe2Vk Dellena’s business has fallen 60 percent since the first riots. She’s repaired the damage to her salon, but business is slow.

They weren’t all lying. Only the “leaders” lied. House leadership is trying to weasel out of its commitment to voters to block Obama’s illegal activities. The House can easily** attach a rider to the upcoming spending bill** prohibiting any money from going toward Obama’s 10 illegal illegal alien memoranda. Read more →
