By Ryan S. Walters

The great historian Burton Folsom, professor history at Hillsdale College, wrote a groundbreaking book defending many of the so-called “robber barons” of the Gilded Age, infamous men such as John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and J. P. Morgan.

United Conservatives Fund Responds to False Reports on Y’all Politics

The United Conservatives Fund (UCF) today released the following statement regarding a false report on the website YallPolitics.com.  The post headline claimed UCF was “backing” a candidate for Lt. Governor in the upcoming statewide elections, and the article claimed the race was “widely expected to be a litmus test for tea party/liberty groups including the United Conservatives Fund.”

“Once again we see how Alan Lange and his cohorts at Y’all Politics are fond of broad misrepresentations without respect to facts,” said UCF spokesperson Keith Plunkett. “UCF has a system in place for candidates to submit their information, and our executive committee is looking at many who have done so.

Should she decide to reach out we will take a look at her information just like we have all the others.” [Read more…]
