TIMOTHY P. CARNEY RNC Chairman Reince Preibus and House Speaker John Boehner on Tuesday railroaded the party's grass roots in order to shut down any debate over rule changes or the decision to unseat 10 Ron Paul delegates elected in Maine... (more)

YOUTUBE "We turn now to a major eruption of fury at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday as the formal nomination process got underway. Part of Maine's delegation stormed off the floor in protest against a decision to strip away half of the state's Ron Paul delegates. Supportive members of other delegations rose to their feet and hollered their objections, angered by new rules that they say will make it harder for grassroots candidates to stand a chance in future elections"...

THE BLAZE For those of you who were hoping to see a hologram Ronald Reagan this year at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, here's the good news: it exists... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST The Republicans were thrown a bit off their stride by having to skip the first night of their convention on Monday, thanks to Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac. But once they got going, their revised orchestration was on the proverbial roll... (more)

FRED HUTCHISON, RA ANALYST Happiness cannot be long sustained unless one lives a life of meaning and purpose. How does one obtain a strong sense of meaning and purpose? Meaning is derived from things which are transcendent and universal. Such things are not accessible to the individual unless man has a nature that is universal to all people... (more)

ALAN KEYES Just moments ago, I read the following email from someone reacting to an article I posted earlier today: Dr. Keyes, I admire and promote you. These messages at this time are not prudent. Although I agree with your thoughts, I fear another non-vote (by ten million Republicans) for the Republican nominee as the very same as when RINO John McCain ran... (more)

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY At the Republican National Convention, party officials flouted the rules and railroaded longtime conservative activists, Tea Party newcomers and Ron Paul delegates. You might think a party whose power in Washington is due to bottom-up, decentralized grassroots passion would not resort to top-down, centralized control... (more)

JIM SIMPSON AB Independent Productions, in collaboration with Veteran investigative journalist Cliff Kincaid of America's Survival, has released a new video that reveals in detail for the first time, the story of how communist and probable Soviet agent Frank Marshall Davis -- arguably the most influential person in Obama's life -- was discovered, and how the national media attempted to cover this story up...

JOSEPH FARAH To the Republican establishment, Rep. Todd Akin, a Missouri candidate for the U.S. Senate, is a liability. Mitt Romney and Karl Rover pulled the rug out from under the GOP candidate to replace Sen. Claire McCaskill because of an inconsequential gaffe. So what should Todd Akin do now? Should he heed the advice of Romney and Rove and all the sophisticated Republicans who have never misspoken in their lives?... (more)

DASHIELL BENNETT Several news outlets have finally got their hands on a copy of the new book about the raid on Osama bin Laden's Pakistan compound, and the details emerging contradict many of the earlier reports about what happened inside the house on the night the al Qaeda leader was killed...

MICHELLE MALKIN While all eyes were on the Republican National Convention in Tampa and Hurricane Isaac on the Gulf Coast, the White House was quietly jacking up the price of automobiles and putting future drivers at risk. Yes, the same cast of fable-tellers who falsely accused GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney of murdering a steelworker's cancer-stricken wife is now directly imposing a draconian environmental regulation that will cost untold American lives... (more)

SEN. JOHN CORNYN As our nation enters the final two months of another spirited election, Republican Senate candidates are on offense in states Democrats won in 2006. A record of broken promises coupled with an unprecedented attempt to push through an extreme liberal agenda has put Democrats in the unenviable position of being forced to play defense and facing daunting odds in areas where just a few short years ago they cruised to victory...

WASHINGTON TIMES Mitt Romney's campaign has stepped back from a major confrontation with fellow Republicans who were irate over what several ranking party officials had called a "power grab" by the presumptive nominee... (more)

JOHN FUND It's no secret that Team Romney wants a button-downed convention where everyone focuses solely on victory in November and there is no outwardly visible conflict. That goal almost blew up this week when Romney backers led by uber-lawyer Ben Ginsberg engineered a set of rules changes for the 2016 convention that many conservative delegates interpreted as an attempt to insulate Romney from any possible conservative challenge in 2016 should he become president...

PHILIP KLEIN All credentialed media checking into the Republican National Convention are being given a swag bag featuring brochures and items from various sponsors such as sunglasses and a pocket fan. But the bag also contains a copy of the original hardcover version of Mitt Romney's book, No Apology, in which he suggested his approach to health care in Massachusetts could be accomplished in the rest of the country...

PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY The Republican Party platform may be the best one ever adopted. The party has long since learned that fiscal, social and sovereignty issues cannot be ignored or separated, but must be addressed as all part of a national campaign... (more)

REUTERS The Republican Party is calling for a crackdown on pornography in a move that could pit social conservatives against hotel operators, television providers and other businesses that profit from the sale of sexually explicit material... (more)

BLOOMBERG More Americans are interested in what the Democratic and Republican platforms have to say, rather than the party's presidential nominees, according to a poll released today. The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press survey was taken as Republicans gathered in Tampa, Florida, this week and Democrats prepared to meet a week later in Charlotte, North Carolina...

DENNIS PRAGER I am in Tampa, and the weather is beautiful -- a warm, light, tropical rain is falling. Whoever decided to cancel one-fourth of the convention two days before it started should appear publicly and offer a rational defense of this decision. But I doubt they will. Because there is no rational explanation... (more)

NEWSMAX Missouri's Republican delegates are resisting calls from the top of the ticket on down to knock Todd Akin out of the Senate race because of his comments on rape, Politico reported. The Akin back and forth is causing a rift among Republicans, with delegates saying Akin could still possibly win his race against Sen. Claire McCaskill in November... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY "From what I understand from doctors, that's (conception as a result of rape) really rare. If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let's assume that maybe that didn't work or something, I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not attacking the child."... (more)

SBA LIST On August 28, 2012 the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced the launch of a $150,000 television ad campaign across Missouri highlighting President Obama's extreme record on abortion and featuring abortion survivor Melissa Ohden. Missouri has recently been at the center of the conversation on abortion... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST Vice President Joe Biden had planned to show up at the Republican National Convention so as to steal some of the GOP's thunder in Tampa. But we're told the threat of Hurricane Isaac convinced him to scrap the venture... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID The big news is that the Republican Convention in Tampa has been delayed because of Tropical Storm Isaac. Perhaps this is an opportunity for the GOP to think twice about nominating Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination... (more)

ALAN KEYES "I know that Romney's bad. But first we get Obama out. Then we'll hold Romney's feet to the fire." That's one of the most common things I hear from self-blinkered GOP partisans hacking for the artificially-engineered Romney nomination. They angrily pretend that rank and file conservatives have no choice but to obey the "eyes wide shut" command emanating from the GOP's elitist faction party bosses... (more)
