Synonyms: Right-winger, reactionary, rightist, die-hard (www.dictionary.com) Best selling author Brad Thor tweeted on Saturday that he would primary President Donald Trump in a 2020 run “IF no conservative steps up…..” (emphasis mine).

The Purple GOP and Why it Must Bleed Red Again

By Janice Barlow WELL, IT’S FINALLY HERE. The year of the midterm elections. Instead of being revved up and ready to hit the ground running, Republicans seem skittish. The candidates and Congress members are not red-blooded anymore. They are oxygen depleted and absorbing the blue of the liberals. They are turning purple.

By Janice Barlow After last week’s foot-in-mouth disease where talk show host Bill Maher used the “N” word live on the air, it is a wonder he has any following left at all.

The Choice is To Choose Life: Republican Senators Will Show Their True Colors on Spending Bill

By Janice Barlow In a strange twist of events in DC, the most conservative of House Republicans decided to go along with the revised version of the Health Care bill, which was far from a repeal and replacement of Obamacare.
