Obama's Moral Relativism
President Obama's moral relativism sees America and Christianity in terms of the Crusades, the Inquisition, slavery, and Jim Crow.
At the 2015 National Prayer Breakfast President Obama stated:
"Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ."
President Ronald Reagan had a much clearer vision:
"The greatness of America doesn't begin in Washington; it begins with each of you-in the mighty spirit of free people under God, in the bedrock values you live by each day in your families, neighborhoods, and work-places. Each of you is an individual worthy of respect, unique and important to the success of America. And only by trusting you, giving you opportunities to climb high and reach for the stars, can we preserve the golden dream of America as the champion of peace and freedom among the nations of the world." - President Ronald Reagan, November 5, 1984.

Obamacare To Cost Taxpayers $50,000 Per Enrollee
"I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits" - President Obama, 09/09/09
According to The Budget and Economic Outlook: 2015 to 2025 conducted by the Congressional Budget Office, "The ACA's coverage provisions will result in net costs to the federal government of $76 billion in 2015 and $1,350 billion" over the next 10 years.
That's right, Obamacare will cost $1.35 trillion to cover between 24 and 27 million Americans, roughly $50,000 per enrollee.
Yet another mistruth by President Obama that will cost taxpayers over a trillion dollars.
Convicted RINO Congressman Resigns, Opening Seat for Conservative
Congressman Michael Grimm (NY11), infamous for being indicted on 20 counts of wire fraud and federal tax evasion and perjury, pleading guilty on a count of felony tax fraud and threatening to throw a reporter over a balcony, has announced that he would resign from office. He was also one of the most liberal Republicans in Congress with a 2013 American Conservative Union rating of 27%.
A member of the so-called Republican Main Street Partnership, he voted for the recent "Crominibus," a massive $1 Trillion spending bill as well as a move to give President Obama a blank check by suspending the National Debt Ceiling until March 15, 2015.
A special election will soon be held in New York's 11th Congressional District. This district is made up of Staten Island a little bit of Brooklyn. Local party officials will choose the candidates.
The apparent frontrunner for the Republicans is Daniel Donovan, Staten Island's district attorney. If he is the nominee, he also should be able to get the New York Conservative Party nod. (In the 2010 New York Attorney General Campaign, Donovan won the endorsement of the Conservative Party of New York.) Donovan will be more conservative than Grimm.
The Democrats have several possible candidates but left-wing NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio is very unpopular here. Grimm won reelection in November, even after the indictment, because he was successful in tying the Democrat candidate to de Blasio. The new Republican nominee will be doing the same.
As Appearing in Human Events
2016 -- The Challenge Ahead
The 2014 elections were great for conservatives. Conservative Victory Fund was right in the middle of the battle.
Look at the results: Harry Reid will no longer be Senate Majority Leader - a great victory for constitutional government. And looking toward 2016, the next goal is to fire Harry Reid from the Senate.
As you can see from the article immediately following this one, a number of conservatives were elected to the Senate.
The same is true in the House. Conservative Victory Fund was involved in primaries to help conservatives win: conservatives like Jody Hice in Georgia, Frank Guinta in New Hampshire, and Alex Mooney in West Virginia. The result is that a number of new solid conservatives have been elected and will fight for conservative goal in the U.S. House.
We can't rest on our laurels though. The battle for 2016 is already beginning. Liberal special interests will be targeting conservatives in states that Obama won 2008 and 2012 like Wisconsin's Ron Johnson and Pennsylvania's Pat Toomey. Other solid Senate conservatives will face the voters again in 2016 such as James Lankford, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Tim Scott. The Republicans will have 24 seats up: the Democrats 10.
However, among those 10 states are some opportunities for conservatives including Harry Reid's seat in Nevada. Our goal is to fire Harry Reid.

CVF Conservative of the Day
Mike Lee (UT)
Mike Lee received his first lessons in conservatism at the dinner table from his father, Rex Lee, who was Solicitor General for President Reagan. Mike's father instilled in him a deep respect for the Constitution and the principles of the founding fathers.
This respect for the Constitution served him well as a legal clerk for future Supreme Court Justice Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr. Senator Lee has a well-deserved reputation for his strong support of the U.S. Constitution. He also was the chief sponsor in the Senate of the "Cut, Cap and Balance" initiative that would have started us on the road to a balanced budget and drastically cut spending.
Senator Lee led the 2010 uprising against politics as usual. He defeated an incumbent U.S. Senator in the Utah Republican Convention, then won the primary, and then the general election.
Mike Lee has established himself as a leading constitutional conservative in the Senate. He has proved over his long legal career that he has the sound judgement and keen understanding of the Constitution that is so desperately needed on Capitol Hill. Conservative Victory Fund was honored to be able to help elect such a dedicated and principled conservative to the U.S. Senate.
