Ed Martin Moves to Censure Henry Barbour Over Racist Mississippi Ads
August 7, 2014
Go Ed! A few weeks ago, hunkered down at my laptop in my hotel room in Jacksonville, Florida. I was exhausted from seven hours of travel and a time change. But I had to take a moment to recognize Ed Martin’s commitment to all the best the Republican Party stands for. Ed is determined to expose the GOP establishment’s willingness to do anything to destroy grassroots insurgents. Thad Cochran’s forces in Mississippi threw ethics, morality, and decency to the wind in their quest to stop a Tea Party candidate from unseating the 128-term Cochran.
Bill Radles Endorses Ed Martin for Attorney General
November 1, 2012
I Endorse Ed Martin Dear Friends, This is an email to encourage you to remember to do all you can to get Ed Martin elected Attorney General of Missouri. I know there are a lot of races and it is easy sometimes to overlook some of the down-ticket offices. But the Attorney General is an extremely important office. He is the chief law enforcement official of the state. He is responsible for seeing to it that our laws are faithfully enforced and our constitutional rights protected.
Turns Out The Guy Dumping On The Middle Class Is Joe Biden
October 10, 2012
A couple weeks ago, Joe Biden made the news by declaring that the middle class in America has been getting dumped on ever since he and Obama took their oaths of office. The statement marked the first time Biden got something right since that day. What Uncle Joe failed to mention was that he has been in charge of the White House’s Middle Class Task Force since January 30, 2009.
Happy Birthday, Jack Hennessy
October 2, 2012
I don’t get into town to visit my dad often enough. That’s my loss. Jack Hennessy, my dad, epitomizes what we call The Greatest Generation. He helped raise his younger brothers and sister after their mother passed away. Jack was ten. His youngest sibling, my uncle Jim, was a newborn. Jack Hennessy answered the call of World War II. He was a Machinist’s Mate in the Navy. He answered, again, when North Korea crossed the 34th Parallel.
If We Don’t Flip Some Toss-Up States, Romney, Ryan, and the USA Are Screwed
August 12, 2012
Choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate was a great Romney move. Looking ahead, Romney sees movement conservatives working hard right up to the election—even if he or his advisors continues to say stupid things. That was necessary. SCROLL DOWN FOR TWO IMPORTANT EVENTS THIS WEEK But it wasn’t enough to win the election and unseat America’s first anti-American president. To do that, we must find a way to win over the selfish middle.
August 11, 2012
I was surprised to learn that Sarah Steelman conceded the GOP Senate race at 10:00. I’d talked to Todd Akin at my polling place on Tuesday morning, and he confirmed my suspicion the [Missouri](https://maps.google.com/maps?ll=38.5,-92.5&spn=3.0,3.0&q=38.5,-92.5 (Missouri)&t=h) Republican race for US Senate would be close. It really wasn’t. Mr. Akin won handily, considering the 3-way race. John Brunner’s remarkably negative, nasty, angry campaign should have made the race much closer. It didn’t. Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Ms.
Ed Martin’s AG Race Makes 3rd Anniversary Tea Party Even More Important
January 28, 2012
Two weeks ago, weeks ago, how many Missouri statewide offices did you expect to flip? Be honest. Yes, there are great people running for Governor, Secretary of State, and Treasurer. And we already have a fine Lieutenant Governor Kinder running for re-election. But numerous factors, like name recognition, experience, and Jay Nixon’s weird relationship with Republican House leadership, made a major upset unlikely. And no Republicans had stepped up to challenge Chris Koster for Attorney General.
11 Minutes of Exactly What We’re Talking About
August 30, 2011
Ed Martin spoke the the Tenth Amendment Center’s Nullification conference in Kansas City. This is a remarkable description of the problem, the dangers, and the solutions of political seduction and abuse of power. Ed Martin at Nullify Now conference in Kansas City, MO One point that I should have made before being prompted by Ed’s speech. Trading Missouri sovereignty for a few pieces of ObamaCare silver is simple cowardice. Governor Nixon, and any Republican who voted for the healthcare exchange, should be retired—on their own or in a primary.
Let Me Apologize
July 22, 2011
In my response to Dan Riehl’s hit piece on Ed Martin, I wrote one more line than I should have. I wrote about an establishment takeover of Big Government. Mike Flynn, the editor of Big Government, has quietly (and not so quietly) led the fight for liberty and good government for decades. His Big Government site has been a backbone in the resurgence of our first principles. Much more importantly to me, Mike Flynn is a friend of mine.
Give Me 5 Minutes, And I’ll Give You a New Friend

I have to tell you about a man I know. He’s a good man whom I respect deeply. **When I’m done, I hope you’ll have a new friend. ** But first, I have tell you about microwave towers and optical illusions. Microwaves and Curves Has this ever happened to you? When I was a kid, my dad worked for a company that owned a small resort for employees about 90 miles south of St.
McCaskill’s Call to Fight
March 7, 2011
I’m getting a lot of requests to pump news about Claire McCaskill’s comments to Democrats. According to Brian R. Hook of Missouri Watchdog, McCaskill gave Democrats a set of instructions very similar to those I usually give at the end of Tea Party rallies. (Only Claire’s instructions seem a bit less human than mine.) Some national political scientists believe McCaskill’s Senate seat is one of the most vulnerable in 2012.
Shady City Votes and Ego-Trip Riders
November 3, 2010
Three precincts in the city of St. Louis delivered 3,800 votes for Carnahan in the last hour of counting. Wahby’s district. Wahby’s wife works for Mayor Francis Slay. They waited until they knew how many votes they needed, then they manufactured them–typical Dems, in my view. Now I ask you: how many dead or non-existent people voted in Wahby’s precincts? Ed Martin won, and everyone knows it. City Democrats have no qualms with committing felonies to steal elections.
Do You Hear The People Sing?
November 1, 2010
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1iBjVlg6lw&w;=480&h;=385] It’s been almost two years since we met. At the time, I had no idea where this was going. Or what I was doing. I still don’t know what I’m doing, but we all know where America is headed. Beginning Tuesday, because of your passionate, tireless efforts, America is returning to the right course to meet the destiny our founders envisioned. On Tuesday, your vote, joined with millions of others, will turn the country around.
The Debate’s End
September 28, 2010
Thirty minutes after the debate’s official end, pods of people remained in the Arnold Rec Center Sunday night: a circle in the vestibule, a half-moon in the center aisle, two or three amorphous clumps up front, the one I belonged to, and the loud groups around Ed Martin. “Why didn’t Russ Carnahan stay and talk to people,” a young woman asked, implying a contrast with Ed Martin’s happy conversation a few feet away.
Healthcare Freedom Pledge
August 11, 2010
Ed Martin’s launched the HealthcareFreedomPledge.com site. Here you can find candidates who committed to protecting your right to choose your own healthcare options. Great idea. The site contains short statements from candidates for both state and federal office who pledge to defend our basic rights. Ask candidates in your area to sign the pledge today.
On to November
August 7, 2010
The primaries are over. I honestly believe that in the St. Louis area, the rightward-most, viable candidate won each of the key votes. The people of Missouri are in a position to make historical shifts in our Washington representation. And those shifts are just the first step and restoring America’s First Principles.
