No worries dude, I got your back. There is absolutely no doubt. Cantor is worried about re-election. Majority Leader Cantor took a phone call from the President about immigration today. Supposedly it offended Cantor so much he “blasted” the President in a “blistering” statement after: “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how […]

This news has some interesting (and […]

A combination of favorite children’s books.** ———————————————- Chapter 8 Chicken Little  played with his yo-yo, up and down, up and down, went the string. One day, a piece of wood fell on his head. “The sky is falling, the sky is falling!” cried Chicken Little, as he squawked running to Cocky Locky for help. “Look here, I […]

That’ll teach those Nativists. Over the past week Shaun Kenney went into hiding. Instead of going on Ingraham’s show, or any other large outlet for that matter to defend his call for ‘nativists’ to be purged from the GOP, he sent out a fundraising email late in the week and that was it for the public […]

It’s time! Majority Leader Cantor is on his way to Amelia Island to hang out with leftist extremists who aren’t in the GOP to discuss purging grassroots who are in the GOP. I’m thinking that the big tent is going to be a ziploc bag when it’s all over. And then he’ll blame…. the nativists. […]

Now I know, from first hand experience, that going on radio shows can be kind of nerve wracking.  Especially at 6:30 am on a Monday morning, but that’s beside the point. I’m a writer, not a talker, so I’d rather get the word out via memo. On the other hand…..Shaun Kenney was formerly the Communications […]

“And he should not do what Gov. Rick Perry did when he was attacked over supporting a piece of legislation that allowed children of illegal aliens to attend schools paying in-state Texas residency at our colleges and universities, which was to question the motivation of his policy opponents, he called them ‘heartless.’ Gov. Bush has […]

NBC’s Ryan Nobles recently interviewed Eric Cantor, asking him to respond to charges made by primary opponent Dave Brat that Cantor was engaging in political tactics meant to silence conservatives. Cantor responded with typical talking points,  without answering the question, or mentioning Brat by name. That’s how he rolls. Cantor’s history is one of never acknowledging his conservative opponents […]

From Bearing Drift Blog: Letting it all hang out. Friday’s post brought, as expected, a rebuttal from the Main Street Partnership affiliated Brian Schoeneman at Bearing Drift Blog. The fact that there was pushback? Welcomed. The tone of that pushback?  Elitist garbage. What we have here, is not a failure to communicate.  The message from […]

Bob Goodlatte, the GOP chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, wants the pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants to be through our military. So.  How many recruiting spots are we going to need? We better find another war to fight, pronto. A family member of mine, a US citizen who has broken no laws whatsoever (and […]

Read it and weep. As the “Fast for Families Across America” national bus tour enters its sixth week, faith, labor and immigrant rights advocates traveled to Richmond’s Monroe Park Thursday to launch a four day water-only fast hoping that Rep. Eric Cantor will use his leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives to force immigration […]
