Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) never disappoints, and his epic rant on the House floor this past week is worthy of air time. Gowdy compared "Senator Obama" to "President Obama," showcasing many of the president's complete reversals. Next, while most - if not everyone - will say they are for "fair and free" elections, we're still met with some resistance. Take voter ID laws, for example. Attorney General Eric Holder cries out "racism" when someone even suggests that we should have voters...

TRUE THE VOTE on fair elections and voter ID laws

While most, if not everyone, will say they are for "fair and free" elections, we're still met with some resistance. Take voter ID laws, for example. Attorney General Eric Holder cries out "racism" when someone even suggests that we should have voters prove their identity. On the phone is Matt Armstrong, the National Program Director with True the Vote - a non-partisan organization dedicated to ensuring our elections are fair and free.

3/16/2014
More
Inspired by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee's gaffe on the Constitution's age, Matt makes some cold calls asking callers if they know the age of our founding document. (HINT: It's not 400 years old, Sheila.)

This past week, the face to the IRS scandal targeting conservative groups yet again pleads the Fifth. Former IRS official Lois Lerner refused to answer questions from Congressman Darrel Issa's House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. With a scandal so obvious and tyrannical, will we ever get to the bottom of this issue? Next, Barack Obama has revealed his latest budget for fiscal year 2015. With a backdrop of children, he claims it's about our future. With a ballooning deficit and...

The danger of programs like "The Daily Show"

3/3/2014
More
Many get their information from non-news sources like "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central. There's nothing wrong with watching these shows, but understanding that it's... comedy... is often forgotten and leads to an ill-informed electorate. As an example, Matt plays a scathing clip from the show, mocking opponents of Medicaid Expansion.

University of Michigan's only conservative publication

How do we take back the youth? Like every issue, it begins with education, especially within our college campuses. Derek Draplin is the Editor-in-Chief of "The Michigan Review," the only conservative and libertarian student publication of campus affairs at the University of Michigan. He speaks with Matt about his work on campus and how the issue of affirmative action has been brought back into the spotlight.

Matt asks a caller if she can (accurately) tell him the difference between Republicans and Democrats.

Is there a difference between Republicans and Democrats?

3/3/2014
More
Many say it's a "two party system," but when both Republicans and Democrats are pushing for bigger government, it's more of a one party system. This past week, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called for the GOP to "retake" their party, since it was "hijacked" by the TEA party and those like Senator Ted Cruz. With new voices advocating for limited government and personal freedom, the left is in full panic mode. No wonder Ms. Pelosi was cheering on the "old" Republicans.

With NO conditions, NO spending cuts, and NO emphasis of getting our fiscal house in order, the GOP-lead U.S. House passes a "clean" debt ceiling increase. Next, instead of allowing market forces to rebuild Detroit and the auto industry, the United States handed billions of dollars to General Motors and Chrysler. Five years later, the city of Detroit is bankrupt and almost $20 billion dollars in debt. "Bankrupt - How Cronyism and Corruption Brought Down Detroit" is a new documentary that...

Former Republican, now Democrat, Charlie Crist claims that he left the GOP because the party has moved too "far to the right." Really Charlie? Is this the same Republican party that is also expanding the size of government?

Jerry Seinfeld was recently asked about gender diversity in comedy. The comedian was quick to point out the hard truth - it doesn't matter what color or gender you are. Funny is funny. The same can be applied to the work environment or to our universities. If you're qualified, you're qualified... race and gender shouldn't matter. You'll hear the word "diversity" or the phrase "social justice" a lot within political circles, academia, and even in the corporate world. In almost every case,...

Challenging the GOP Establishment in 2014

2/8/2014
More
It's big government vs. limited government and Washington insiders vs. We the People. In today's America, the GOP establishment more often than not falls into the "big government" category and thus not too dissimilar from their Democrat counterparts. When constitutionalists like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul advocate for a more limited government, they are called "radicals." How is it radical to simply follow the law of the land? The real radicals are those complicit in the demise of our Republic....
