“Just looking at faces, I could tell there were some folks who are here not because they were born here.” – President Obama in California pushing amnesty
So, Democrats are racially profiling immigrants now? What happened to judging people on the basis of character and not skin color? America is historically known as a melting pot — a country that embraced people from all walks of life with open arms. For instance, my parents are immigrants. How can one tell? They have accents, unique worldviews, and powerful stories from behind the Iron Curtain. (My sister and I are extremely blessed to call them our parents.) Do these qualities make my parents any less American? No! Are they supposed to look a certain way? No! My parents assimilated into this country and embrace the American way of life.
Immigrants have greatly contributed to this country. Whether they hail from Europe, Asia, South America, or Africa, immigrants come to the United States to escape tyranny, enjoy freedom, pursue opportunities, and fulfill their dreams. Instead of using immigrants as pawns to advance big government policies, cherish them and see them for their individual worth.
I’ve penned a new column at Counter Cultured just in time for Election Day here in Virginia. My family and I will be voting for Ken Cuccinelli for Governor, E.W. Jackson for Lieutenant Governor, Mark Obenshain for Attorney General, and Brian Wolfe for Fairfax County Sheriff.
Below is an excerpt from my column criticizing Terry McAuliffe’s misogynist views and crusade for big government:
Tomorrow is Election Day here in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Many of you have seen me comment, tweet, and write about the gubernatorial race in great detail. (Disclaimer: I’m a Ken Cuccinelli supporter and have been since he launched his campaign in Summer 2012.) This race is important for our state, and its outcome will have an impact nationwide.
A win for Cuccinelli is a win for freedom; a win for McAuliffe is a win for big government.
Much to the dismay of Terry McAuliffe and his surrogates, Ken isn’t an extremist or a woman-hater. On the contrary, Ken is pro-woman–more pro-woman than McAuliffe could ever claim to be.

I often talk about the power of Twitter on my social media outlets. I cannot stress it enough. One tweet or retweet can carry immense sway and even land in an article or news story.
So, that happened to me again.
Jill Lawrence of National Journal, which is no bastion of conservative thought, borrowed one of my tweets in order to write why it was appropriate for President Obama to insert himself in the George Zimmerman trial. Lawrence took great issue with being “dangerously conservative.” (It’s called having a sense of humor.)
Below is the excerpt:
Inevitably, conservatives charged that Obama was stirring up controversy needlessly, and showing bias against whites. “Remarkable that the president of the United States continues to fan the flames on George Zimmerman. #StopTalkingSir,” tweeted Republican strategist Brian Walsh.
“Can this president and his ilk get over race? You’re dividing and destroying this country with your race-baiting—making Karl Marx proud,” tweeted Gabriella Hoffman, a regional field coordinator for the Leadership Institute who describes herself as “dangerously conservative.”
Yet for the black community, Obama’s remarks were more than four years overdue. After the Zimmerman verdict, they pleaded with him to say something commensurate to their pain over this case—to speak not just about race but about racism.
I’ve penned a new column at Campus Reform on why young people shouldn’t trust big government.
During a commencement speech at The Ohio State University last month, President Obama warned the Class of 2013 to reject the voices warning against big government.
“Unfortunately you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all of our problems,” he said. “[T]hey’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner.
“You should reject these voices,” he continued. “Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.”
Ironically, these words came back also immediately to haunt him.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) scandal broke, followed by the National Security Agency (NSA) scandal, as well as the Department of Justice’s snooping on Fox News journalist James Rosen and Associate Press reporters.
Young people must always be wary of an intrusive government that promises a life of security coupled with limited freedoms.

Last Saturday, I had the privilege of speaking at Maryland Conservative Action Network’s “Turning the Tides” conference in Annapolis, MD alongside three other young panelists – Brandon Cooper, Brian Meshkin, and Trae Lewis.
Our generation will be hardest hit by Obama’s disastrous economic policies. Therefore, it’s imperative that conservatives bolster their numbers with more young people. Conservatism, not a diluted version of it, will entice people to our side. Any attempts to abandon conservatism will lead to more elections lost and less voter turnout.
Those in attendance enjoyed hearing from us on the panel. Everyone gave wonderful speeches.
My speech beings at the 19:28 mark. Let me know what you think!
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” – Ronald Reagan
Bailey Connell – who is known for her singing talents, blogging, and work with Resistance 44 – has released a new music video. In it, she raps and sings about the need to defeat Obama…to the tune of Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend.”
Watch it, and do your part to make it go viral. Kindly share!
If you have attended public school in America, you know very well what goes on in classrooms. (I will recap my time in public school from K to 12 and college after I graduate.)
This video recently surfaced, and it’s rather telling of indoctrination in the classroom.
From Chicks on the Right:
A heated conversation took place in a North Carolina high school. The social studies teacher in the classroom was OUT OF CONTROL and screaming at her students, because they asked the question, “Hey – didn’t Obama admit to bullying someone in school too?” (Apparently, the conversation started about that over-hyped, completely irrelevant story of Mitt Romney bullying someone like a billion years ago.)
The teacher simply WOULD NOT HAVE anyone in her classroom suggest that Obama is anything other than a total saint. And she claimed that people were arrested for saying bad things about President Bush (who, by the way, she called “sh*tty. TO HER STUDENTS.)
There are two things that struck me about this video. The first and obvious thing is that this teacher is a complete idiot who is unable to control her emotions or say anything remotely factual. But secondly, even though the kid in this video is absolutely right, I’m amazed that this is how a classroom operates. There’s yelling, cussing, interrupting – on both sides. When I was in school, kids simply didn’t behave this way, because we were taught to respect our teachers and stay quiet and follow the rules, etc. Granted, this teacher is an idiot and probably one of the least deserving people of respect EVER. But WOW – I’m just blown away that this is how ANY classroom functions now.
