Huckabee Hits Cruz with Whopper Lie; Then Denies It’s a Lie

“Accuracy is the twin brother of honesty; inaccuracy, of dishonesty.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne I am profoundly disheartened by Mike Huckabee’s behavior. I was a supporter of his in 2008 because he was clearly the more conservative alternative to John McCain, but a short eight years later, he’s let me down–not because he’s polling at a paltry 1.8%, but because he was willfully dishonest when asked about a recent attack on a fellow candidate. A Super PAC supporting Mike Huckabee recently ran an ad Read more […]

The Debate You May Have Missed: Economics and the 2nd Tier of Candidates

On Tuesday during prime time you may have enjoyed the fireworks on Fox Business as the top tier of GOP presidential candidates took turns laying out their vision of America’s economic future. However, you may have missed the earlier debate featuring the lower polling GOP candidates, namely Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ), Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA), Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum. That debate also had some good moments, particularly for Chris Christie and Bobby Jindal, and is well worth your Read more […]

Three GOP Candidates Take a Stand Against Cronyism in the Government

Three GOP Presidential candidates are taking a stand against crony capitalism, opposing the Overseas Private Investment Corporation. More than 40 years old, OPIC has been lambasted by critics as a shining example of corporate welfare. OPIC’s functions closely mirror those of the Export-Import Bank, which recently became a prime target for free market Republicans. Thanks to a rebellion against the GOP establishment, including House Speaker John Boehner, Ex-Im’s charter was allowed to expire Read more […]

Mike Huckabee Slams the Clinton Family!

GOP Candidate for President Mike Huckabee was in Iowa this week when he took the opportunity to slam the Clinton family and their mutual Arkansas roots. Is there anybody on our side that has a good opportunity to take on the Clinton political machine. Folks, I’m the only one who has ever done it, because every election I ever ran in Arkansas. Every time, I didn’t just run against an opponent, I ran against the entire political apparatus they built over a 25 year period. And I’ll tell you something Read more […]

The Trump Effect: How Donald Trump is Capitalizing on Modern Political Discourse

Political commentators are using the term the Trump Effect to explain why fringe Republican candidates for the 2016 presidential race are stumbling over each other to say inflammatory things. Apparently, Trump has been getting very good traction with Republican voters for his willingness to say just about whatever controversial thing comes to his mind, and other candidates want in on the publicity, apparently. A case in point. Mike Huckabee made a fool of himself by claiming that, with the Iran Read more […]

The Iran Deal, the Holocaust, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz

“I told him that I did not believe that they could burn people in our age, that humanity would never tolerate it.” – Elie Wiesel, Night The Holocaust is one of the most significant events in history in which evil was so blatantly evident. As such, many have used it as a marker against which all other evil is measured—the lessers and the greaters. This has led to inappropriate comparisons as well as comparisons that are strikingly relevant. During a radio interview Sunday, Presidential candidate Read more […]

“The Supreme Court is Completely Out of Control” says GOP Presidential Candidate

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal took no time in condemning the Supreme Court Friday for their decision to legalize gay marriage. “The Supreme Court is completely out of control, making laws on their own, and has become a public opinion poll instead of a judicial body,” he said in a statement. “If we want to save some money lets just get rid of the court.” The Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision Friday that all 50 states must recognize same-sex marriage, but Jindal accused Read more […]

Dr. Ben Carson Wins Georgia Straw Poll for President in Stunning Landslide!

Where might you expect to find Dr. Ben Carson’s stronghold of support? Look no further than the deep south, where in my home state of Georgia, the GOP Presidential candidate scored a stunning victory in the 2015 Georgia State Convention Straw Poll. Dr. Carson won just over 76% of the convention vote easily dominating Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) who came in 2nd and 3rd with 7% and 6% of the vote respectively. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) rounded out Read more […]

Did Mike Huckabee FLip-Flop on the Common Core?

The straightforward position Huckabee puts forward on his website, however, masks a past in which he has offered eager praise for Common Core, or suggested that the only real problem with it is its name. Like many Republicans, Huckabee was a supporter of Common Core before it became controversial, and he was still expressing strong support at late as 2013, when several other Republicans were starting to switch. Huckabee even defended the standards from Republican critics, arguing the conservatives Read more […]

‘I Stand Sunday’ Rally in Houston to Support Pastors Persecuted by Lesbian Mayor

Let me quickly summarize what has been taking place in Houston with their liberal Christian hating lesbian mayor, Annise Parker. Earlier this year, Parker, along with the help of a sexually confused councilman who thinks he’s a woman, forced through an ordinance that gave special privileged status to LGBT people. One of the provisions of that ordinance allows men who claim to be female or sexually confused to use the women’s bathroom, showers and locker rooms, even if they are still anatomically Read more […]
