The Lost Confidence of the GOP

reagan

Here we sit, mere hours before the first Republican presidential debate and all I can think to myself is, “Please God don’t let them embarrass us even more.” I can’t help but think gone are the days of excitement over the possibility of bringing in a candidate capable of countering the damage done by the…


Life has no safe rooms.

One of my favorite authors, Jon Krakauer of Into the Wild, and my personal favorite, Into Thin Air fame, has penned a new book on the increasingly publicized issue of the campus rape culture.  In Missoula, Rape and the Justice System in a College Town, Krakauer weaves an agonizing tale surrounding the sexual assault of several University of Montana…


I’m excited to announce…

Hello friends, I’m happy to announce I’ve accepted the position of Director of New Media with Tea Party Express.  I can’t express my excitement over, what feels like, being called to the front lines of the upcoming elections. I started down this road because of my passion and love for politics and this nation.  The…


Happy Bill of Rights Ratification Day!

If you don’t get the daily email from Bill Bennett and his American Patriot’s Daily Almanac AND you get goofily excited about history like myself, then what’s wrong with you?  Sign up for it man! I love history and I always have. But more so now especially when it comes to American history and learning…


You’re a Part of the Conservative Symphony

When I first delved into political punditry I was like a puppy running my way through a grassy spring field full of dandelions with my tongue and tail wagging with hope.  Then I got smacked up side the head. For some reason I believed if you were a conservative you would think the same way…

Is this a good thing for the…


The Little Mentioned Cultural Side-Effect of Abortion

By DONLYN TURNBULL Everyday certain headlines pop out at me and I think the exact same thing, if only life wasn’t so cheap now.  Of course there have been moments in human history where life was greatly cheapened.  You need only visit the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. to be reminded of that.  But “life”…

Everyone Blog About the Howard County State’s Attorney Day

I agreed to participate in this blog day for some very personal and specific reasons.  Let me ask you a question. Have you ever had a stalker?  I hope your answer is no because I have and it was a living, breathing, nightmare. It takes an incredible toll on you mentally, emotionally and eventually physically….


The Sunday Rundown with Donlyn

Yes, this is the former Sunday Under the Covers from DSP Magazine.  So why the change?  Let me explain. When I first began writing about politics I firstly did so anonymously and just for fun. It wasn’t serious and I had a blast writing it.  Also, writing with anonymity comes with a certain amount of freedom. I…
