• Kay Coles James, World: “The calvary is not coming” – I believe in limited government because limited government gives you the most freedom. But I met recently with young African-American conservative professionals and said, “I have a newsflash for you: The cavalry is not coming. There is no one coming to save us. The conservative movement, the evangelical movement, and the Republican Party don’t care about us anymore.”
  • Michelle Malkin: Rotten to the Core, Part III – Texas is a right-minded red state, where patriotism is still a virtue and political correctness is out of vogue. So how on earth have left-wing educators in public classrooms been allowed to instruct Lone Star students to dress in Islamic garb, call the 9/11 jihadists “freedom fighters” and treat the Boston Tea Party participants as “terrorists”? As Texas goes, so goes the nation. The fight against the federalization of academic standards is a national education Alamo.
  • Herman Cain: On the Next Manufactured Crisis – Remember when a crisis was, say, thousands endangered by some disaster? Now we’ve grown accustomed to the idea that a “crisis” is the mere refusal of our elected leaders to perform the most basics functions of their jobs without tempting the fate of institutional collapse every few months.
  • Mychal Massie: United We Stand, Silent America is Destroyed –  One voice speaking out against injustice, when it is joined by other voices, becomes a cacophony.  That cacophony is what is needed to combat the purveyors of racial discord that is being used to divide us.
  • Ana Puig: Why Republicans Can’t Conquer the Hispanic Vote – Republicans are getting it all wrong with Hispanic outreach because they view  their efforts through a lens of political strategy, when they should be focusing  on values and community building. It’s time to take a page from the Democrat’s playbook, and get out and  organize at the community level. Educate people on the benefits of economic  empowerment, and take the time to explain how free enterprise is actually the  most compassionate agenda for the poor and underprivileged.
  • Ruben Navarrette: Obama’s Deportation Policy a Bag of Tricks – When trying to be tough, the administration will count the nanny — or housekeeper, gardener, senior caregiver, etc — as part of its list of “criminal” deportees. When trying to be compassionate, it is just as likely to leave them off the list. There are so many games, so many tricks.
  • Lloyd Marcus: Tea Party: Come Together – Every  time the Obama media hear negative news  and infighting in the Tea Party, they have an orgasm.  Since our inception,  Obama’s media has tried to portray white Tea Party members as redneck racists  against a black president and black members like me as Uncle-Tom  sellouts.
  • George Rodriguez: The President Who Cried “Wolf” – The Sequestration is Obama’s law and he must now deal with it. He can do this by giving government agencies authority to move money around for priorities. But apparently he prefers to play politics and scare people instead of governing.
  • Maria Belen: Starting Young: Progressive Education - One of the many problems with the United States of today is the education system. Children are being taught from an early age that socialism is the proper way of life.
  • Christina Martin: Logic Fail: Kill the Baby to “Save” it from Abuse – In a recent opinion piece on the Duluth News Tribune, a writer remarked that aborting children who could potentially suffer abuse is an act of kindness. This type of deluded thinking is common in our society today. The abort to “save the child pain” philosophy masquerades itself as compassion, when it’s truly rooted in selfishness.
  • Kevin Fobbs: Governor Declares Financial Emergency for Detroit – This continuing big city budgetary nightmare is a harbinger on what other large cities across the nation are facing. Other liberal city leaders have also imposed tax policies and overly generous union long-term contract liabilities on their cities as well. The result has left their own city coffers financially crippled.
  • Anthony Bradley: Corporate Welfare: Why? – I have yet to read a moral argument for why the taxes collected from working men and women should be redistributed to businesses. It’s called “corporate welfare.” This is the odd state of affairs where business owners compete for government funding rather than exclusively competing for customers in the marketplace.
  • Nadra Enzi: Choose Grassroots Over GOP Establishment – The way forward may rest in by passing the GOP establishment and running Tea Party and third party Black conservative candidates who otherwise wouldn’t get Old Guard Republican support.
  • Artur Davis: Defending Christie – To put Christie’s appeal in perspective, it’s worth noting that conservatism’s main challenge lies not in a sea of particulars on issues that will fade, but in the ability to outline just how and why collectivism and top-heavy bureaucracy diminish the public good.
  • Michelle Lancaster: Remembering Andrew Breitbart – This suburban Annie Oakley (another great term from Andrew) WILL use the label of hispanic conservative if it will get the attention of someone who thinks we don’t exist.  I will play their game in order to promote economic freedom and liberty. Think what you will, but I know that Andrew would be proud of me doing my little part to change the narrative.
