After being lifted from fringe figure in the Nevada State Assembly to become an all-star for Religious Right and Tea Party groups across the country, Sharron Angle is now plotting her next move after losing to Harry Reid in November. Even though voters in Nevada rejected Angle in three separate elections, including races for the State Senate, House, and US Senate, Angle is floating another bid for higher office. According to Guy Benson, the political editor of the conservative Townhall.com, Angle may be a candidate for “statewide office” in 2012 despite her humbling loss to Reid... MORE >

The other day we noted that members of the Freedom Federation had sent another letter to members of the Senate urging them to delay any vote on repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell until next year (when Republicans would have enough votes to kill any such effort). Today, The Daily Caller printed a memo written by Freedom Federation founder Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel that was distributed to his Religious Right allies laying out the ten senators they intended to target: Senators need to know that they will be held accountable for how they vote on this issue. Within the next 48 hours be... MORE >

In yesterday's Washington Update from the Family Research Council, Tony Perkins writes that Senators will have "the blood of innocent soldiers on their hands" if they vote to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell and allow gays to serve openly in the military: How many brave men and women are liberals willing to sacrifice so that homosexuals can flaunt their lifestyle? The only reason for changing the present policy is if it would help the military accomplish its mission. So far, no one has produced a single reason how it would. Until then, the Senate has to ask itself: Do they want the... MORE >

A few weeks ago, dozens of Religious Right leaders signed on to a letter calling for any effort to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell to be put off until next year (when Republican gains in Congress would allow them to kill any such effort). The most recent effort to repeal DADT failed in the Senate failed, so now Congress is making one last push to overturn the policy, leading this same group of Religious Right leaders to re-issue the same letter: Ninety-four organizations have joined together to sign a letter to members of the U.S. House and Senate opposing the repeal of the law...

Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America calls on RNC Chair Michael Steele to step down. Judge Napolitano of Fox News says 9/11 “couldn't possibly have been done the way the government told us” on Alex Jones's show. Speaking of Alex Jones, Rand Paul went on his show in 2009 to compare Obama to Hitler. Down 10,328 votes and still not giving up, Alaska’s Joe Miller intensifies legal battle with new “baseless” claims. Unsurprisingly, Sharron Angle blames “disconnected” people in “urban areas” for her loss to... MORE >

Following last Tuesday's election, RWW will bring you our list of the "The Ten Scariest Republicans Heading to Congress." Our sixth candidate profile is on Lou Barletta, America’s anti-immigrant mayor: Those disappointed to see anti-immigrant zealot Tom Tancredo off the national political stage will find a similar one-issue firebrand in Pennsylvania congressman-elect Lou Barletta. Barletta rose to national prominence as the mayor of Hazleton, Pennsylvania, a small working class city that in 2006 enacted some of the most draconian anti-immigrant measures in the country....

Every time the Republicans lose in national elections, we see all sorts of articles about how this signals the end of the Religious Right ... articles which are the followed up some time later with other articles noting the sudden "resurgence" of the Religious Right. On the flip-side, whenever Republicans win national elections, we see columns like this one from Ed Messe crowing that the conservative movement is now unified and ready to remake America: The conservative movement won a resounding victory Tuesday. Not only did many conservative candidates win, the American people... MORE >
