The AP’s Liz Sidoti — A Gust of Fresh Air from the Left?

Posted: June 11, 2013 at 11:15 am   /   Arizona, Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Frankly, I don’t often read Associated Press (AP) editorial material because so much of it is so mawkishly Left-leaning and supportive of Big Government that the articles make my teeth hurt. But on June 10, Liz Sidoti published an editorial that felt like a gust of fresh air.  The article begins (emphasis added): As a […]

Becky Gerritson, Stuart Varney, and the IRS Targeting Scandal

Posted: June 5, 2013 at 3:00 pm   /   Arizona, Elections, Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories, Videos

What makes the IRS Targeting Scandal different from all other Obama-regime scandals? Why has the testimony of Alabaman Becky Gerritson, one of the IRS’s victims, touched a nerve across America, well beyond the elites in Washington and the media? Why are even some on the Left (finally) ashamed of how their beloved Big Government has […]

Brit Hume on the Big Lesson of the Benghazi, IRS, and AP Scandals

Posted: May 20, 2013 at 11:22 am   /   Arizona, Elections, Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories, Videos

Most on the Left will grudgingly admit that Big Government can go horribly wrong.  The histories of Russia, China, and North Korea are the extreme examples. But, the Left claims, Big Government can work well if the right people are in charge. In America, those right people were ostensibly those that Obama chose for his […]

Don’t pit Marco and Rand against each other!

Posted: March 21, 2013 at 9:25 am   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories, Videos

The pundits will do it because it makes for good talk. The left-wing media (redundancy alert) will do it because it hurts Republicans. Conservatives will do it because they’re afraid of the change Rand Paul represents (the slow but inevitable ascendance of libertarianism within the GOP) Libertarians will do it because they’re obsessed with ideological […]

Conservatives Must Never Give Up. Never.

On October 21st, 2010, Western Free Press—then a brand-new organization—covered the American Solutions event at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix. There were a number of powerful speakers, including then-candidate David Schweikert and American Solutions founder Newt Gingrich. The  event was memorable, but the highlight was the moment in Speaker Gingrich’s address when he spoke of Washington’s […]

Plotting the Future of California’s GOP

Posted: February 25, 2013 at 2:00 pm   /   Elections, Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Last month, I was invited to be on a panel at the bi-annual convention of the California Congress of Republicans.  This isn’t just a gathering of like-minded conservatives.  These are political activists whose lives are built around actually trying to wage successful campaigns in a state so blue, it could be renamed East Hawaii. In […]

Ten rules for advancing conservative and libertarian ideals

Posted: February 14, 2013 at 11:45 am   /   Features, Politics

Several days ago, I published The Key to Republican Victory (for real this time!). It features a fairly intense call to arms from David Horowitz, and a preamble that defends Horowitz’s approach. And the approach is certainly valid. When one is getting repeatedly struck in the face, it is reasonable to take all necessary steps to […]
