As anyone who has worked on a presidential campaign knows, there is always an undercurrent of trepidation that the candidate or a trusted advisor will say or do something that connects in a very negative way with the vast majority of voters.

As much as most in Hollywood bow, kneel, and even weep in joy before their Messiah Barack Obama, they are not doing him any favors of late with the release and massive viewing of first, The Hunger Games and now, The Avengers.

The Threshold Editions division of Simon & Schuster (the publisher of Dick Cheney, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, and Laura Ingraham -- defenders of Traditional Values, all) has just published my new novel titled Vengeance Is Mine. No surprise that some liberals are already attacking the book and the beliefs of the main character.

At what point in a nation where approximately 80% of the citizens identify themselves as "Christians" will Christian candidates defend themselves and their faith from the bigoted and deliberate smears of far-left journalists?

Okay. It is now officially crunch-time for conservative voters. Time for them to grow-up, stand on principle, admit there is not a perfect candidate, cast aside the pretenders, flip-floppers, and flakes, and unite behind the most genuine traditional values espousing candidate in the field. That being Texas governor Rick Perry.

As our nation and our world spin more and more dangerously out of control because fewer and fewer people of substance, faith, and integrity are willing to step into that perilous arena, we need to pause every once in a while to acknowledge those who have.

As the Republican primary process continues, there is no doubt that the establishment GOP is winning and the Tea Party is losing.

In politics, character does and should count.

I once had a conversation with a well-connected Democrat in Washington, D.C., with regard to lack of advertising in conservative publications.

Leaving aside the televised, overly scripted, predictable and marginally useful "debates" now taking place between the Republican candidates for president, there are much more important discussions going on between conservatives and independents who are unified in their belief that for the good of the nation, Barack Obama must be defeated.

I must confess that I no longer have a clear understanding as to how many of our major newspapers operate.

Surprise. Despite his "jobs" speech, President Obama's own handpicked White House Office of Management and Budget has just predicted grim employment numbers right through 2012. Well, with that reality in mind, a news flash to the unemployed, the underemployed, and the mainstream media: The jobs are never going to come back under Barack Obama or under the liberal/socialist policies of far-left Democrats. Never.

In their quest to widen the low-road and increase its rider-ship, the liberal Washington, D.C-based Politico just offered up this hackneyed but oh so predictable headline: “Is Rick Perry Dumb?”

Posted August 29, 2011

When you hear every single liberal media outlet in the country say, "We will know more about Rick Perry after we vet his 11 years in office," you need to understand that what they vindictively mean is...

As our economy continues to self-destruct; U.S. credit is shockingly downgraded; home prices remain at historic lows; unemployment rises; small businesses continue to close their doors; public-employee-bloated cities, towns, states and employers continue to default...

I spoke recently with a senior Democrat strategist who offered up a quite logical and incredibly frightening scenario for those who are desperate to vote Barack Obama out of office in 2012.

Even as Mitt Romney inexplicably flip-flops on his past very accurate observation that President Obama has made the economy worse, liberals in the mainstream media are now underscoring the former Massachusetts governor's initial charge.

As a conservative with some experience in presidential politics, it's more than amusing for me to watch left-of-center mainstream reporters and pundits work overtime to lock the 2012 GOP contenders into 'conventional wisdom.'

The conservatives, Republicans, independents, and even the growing number of Democrats who embrace traditional values and strongly oppose Barack Obama and his socialist tendencies, are tired. They are bone tired, worried beyond words, and quite frankly sick of one pretend GOP candidate after the other leaving them at the altar.
