By Senator Chris McDaniel

Who is America’s greatest national security threat at the present time?

Is it ISIS, the radical Islamic group spreading their reign of terror across Iraq and the greater Middle East in the hopes of establishing a Muslim Caliphate?  Or is it our very own President, who seems clueless to this threat and is placing our nation in a very dangerous situation with his attitude, inaction, and weakness?

Plunkett: Political Upheaval That Gave Rise To M. Stanton Evans Is Same Challenge Conservatives Face Today

By Keith Plunkett | UCF Staff

In the fall of 1960, 90 young conservatives met at the Sharon, Connecticut home of National Review editor William F. Buckley, Jr., where they founded Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) to serve as an organization for young conservative activists. As their statement of principle, the group adopted the Sharon Statement, which was drafted by 26-year-old newspaper editor M. Stanton Evans. Written “at this time of moral and political crisis,” the statement is a succinct summary of the central ideas of modern American conservatism.

Evans, long now considered an icon of the modern conservative movement, passed away March 3 at the age of 80. [Read more…]

Rick Perry Hires Another Barbour for Presidential Campaign

In an article out today in the New York Times, as well as the Clarion Ledger, it has been announced that Rick Perry, the former governor of Texas, has hired yet another Barbour for his presidential635609124077837286-austin-barbour campaign.  Austin Barbour, the brother of Henry Barbour, has been tapped by Perry to run his Super PAC.  Unfortunately, this is not Perry’s first Barbour hire.  As was reported back in September, Perry hired Henry Barbour to advise him on his campaign for the White House.  And judging from the Barbour Brothers’ conduct in the Cochran/McDaniel race, specifically the despicable actions they took last June, one must wonder if this will be the strategy used by Perry to win the Republican nomination, assuming he can, at the very least, remember what departments he wants to cut this time around.  For Mississippi’s True Conservatives, the supporters of Chris McDaniel, this should be the death knell of any support for Perry.

From the New York Times story:

Rick Perry, the former Texas governor who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, is continuing to put the pieces in place for a 2016 campaign.

Mr. Perry is moving to establish a “super PAC” to back his effort, and has turned to Austin Barbour, a Mississippi-based lobbyist and political operative to head it, according to three people with knowledge of the moves.

Mr. Barbour’s brother, Henry, is a Republican national committee member who has supported Mr. Perry for years. The brothers’ uncle is Haley Barbour, the former Mississippi governor and a senior figure in Republican circles.

Austin Barbour most recently worked with his brother to help re-elect Senator Thad Cochran, the Mississippi Republican, in 2014, in one of the most competitive Republican primary fights of the midterm cycle.

Both Mr. Barbour and a spokesman for Mr. Perry declined to comment.

The aim of the super PAC is to raise large sums of money from donors, largely to finance television ads. Part of Mr. Barbour’s job will be to attract donors and assure them their money is being spent well.

Mississippi GOP Establishment Jabs McDaniel, Insults Tea Party Over LG Race

Ryan S. Walters | @ryanswalters73

The Republican Establishment in Mississippi is downright gleeful, or so they say, over the fact that neither Chris McDaniel nor Michael Watson jumped in the Lieutenant Governor’s race to challenge Tate Reeves. But are they happy, or relieved?

On WLBT’s political “Red Blue Review” show with Nash and Taggart, the pundits used the occasion to strike out against McDaniel and his conservative base. [Read more…]
