Bloggers Honoring Bloggers: Award Nominees To Be Voted On At Blogbash CPAC

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Blogbash was created for one purpose: to honor the unpaid, activist bloggers who are making a huge difference in the conservative movement. They are, as Pamela Gellar said, “the ones who will change the world.”

This year, we’re adding something special: A tangible way for bloggers to honor bloggers by nominating posts, blogs, tweets, podcasts for awards. Seeing all the amazing things bloggers have done over 2011 in one place is inspiring.

Below, you’ll find the nominations for the different awards and you bloggers will be able to vote for the winners.

You’ll also note the categories of awards to be chosen by committee.

This is so exciting! Please tweet this post and share all the great work bloggers are doing!

See you Thursday!

Podcast: The President, Little People, The Press, Levi’s Palin Penis Johnson

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

Stephen Green joins me to discuss the Obama-Education talk controversy. He takes on AllahPundit with wit and style. [I would have asked AllahPundit to be on the show had I thought the man would come out of hiding.] We talk about Obama’s cult of personality. We also discuss The Moment President Obama’s presidency went off the rails.

Brandon Vidrine also joins me to discuss the evolution of news online and the new tools to keep people informed.

Finally, Levi Johnson’s …johnson. Sorry, couldn’t help it. I talk about the press’s Levi-erotica. It ain’t pretty. And then, there’s the Cougars. Growl….

Afghanistan, Arrogant Independents, Alcohol Taxes and Alpha Males

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Steve Schippert of Threats Watch joined me for a furious segment about American policy in Afghanistan. Also, is President Obama a foreign policy genius? General Jim Jones thinks so. Steve has a quibble with that take. This is a must-listen to take on America’s place in the world.

It’s super popular these days to call oneself a political Independent. I call bull sh*t. Here’s a bit from my American Issues Project column on the subject:

Where Barlett differs from Beck is action. Where Glenn Beck encourages Americans to get involved, and he himself has supported Tea Parties, traveled the country and done his own forms of protesting and paid for it, Barlett sits in his easy chair playing Monday Morning Quarterback to….everybody.

That’s the new cool: hating everyone.

I, myself, have written about the pathetic political class. It’s patently obvious that D.C. is insular, out-of-touch and entitled. They feel more like lording over than representing. The power equation is reversed. However, I’ve also attended, reported from and painted signs for Tea Parties. In addition, there is no question in my mind that the road to salvation for America won’t be through a third party–a political porn fantasy for many Ron Paulian Republicans and other independents. The solution is to change the Republican party. The only way to do that is to change it from within by action.

Also, today in Illinois, alcohol taxes increase by 90%. Hmmmm…. I wonder what those fine citizens will do.

Finally, are Alpha Males a beast that’s nearly extinct? Maybe. That doesn’t seem like a good thing. More on that later, but it’s talked about in the podcast.

Podcast 33: Media Bias & Malpractice With Dan Gainor

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center, Townhall, and Newsbusters joined me to discuss the media’s bias–both covert and overt–and how it shapes public opinion. It does work. The media does shape opinion, even though most news organizations have moved to a British model of journalism. The difference is that a Brit journalist will admit his bias, whereas an American journalist likes to view himself as objective. His delusion makes him more dangerous.

Below, you’ll see some links to some other podcasts. I’d like to draw your attention to Steve Schippert of National Review Online Threat’s Watch. His show is a must for anyone wanting to stay informed about world events. He lays out what is happening strategically with North Korea. I highly recommend listening to his show.
