Rush: The Republican Party isn’t Presenting an Alternative

Rush Limbaugh, RushLimbaugh.com

Top Ten Reasons for Mitt to Run...AWAY!

C. Edmund Wright, American Thinker

Ted Cruz and the Real ‘War on Women’

Tony Lee, Breitbart

Karl Rove’s Crossroads group spent $450 million on the 2012 election cycle – with no wins. After recalibrating to attack conservatives in 2014 primaries, donations dried up soon after. Now, the group announced it will likely stay out of the 2016 presidential primaries.

Time for Conservative Cultural Surrender?

Brent Bozell, CNS News

Will NRSC Ever Help Conservatives? Now’s the Chance

Ted Cruz on 2016: Who is Standing Up and Leading?

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

The Texas Senator is on the road trying to turn out conservatives in November, but he says the litmus test for GOP voters in the presidential primaries should be whether a given candidate has led on the battlefield of ideas against the left and political establishment as a whole.

Viguerie: Priebus Speech A Victory For Conservatives

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Republican Senate candidates who are lagging a month out from the election, such as Thom Tillis in North Carolina and Pat Roberts in Kansas, should take Chairman Priebus' speech as their cue to start campaigning as conservatives and then deliver on that campaign when they get to Washington.

Why Lib. Press Loves Right’s Reaction to O’s ‘Latte Salute’

Noah Rothman, Hot Air

Conservatives’ criticisms are valid, but they are also not immediately apparent to the vast majority of civilians who've never served. This includes the political media complex. Out of ignorance, they see the criticisms of Obama on matters like these as trite, baseless, and rooted in hatred.
