Ben Bullard

Ben Bullard Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic. Email this author.


Rand Paul Stakes Out His Reagan Territory Before The Other Presidential Candidates Can Get There

Rand Paul Stakes Out His Reagan Territory Before The Other Presidential Candidates Can Get There

After winning a second CPAC Presidential straw poll, Rand Paul (R-Ky.) realized it was time to start taking control of an important conservative brand name before the other guys could beat him to the punch.

Atkisson Quits CBS News Over Network’s Liberal Bias, Complicity In Promoting White House Narratives

Sharyl Atkisson, one of the few reporters in mainstream media who has never strayed far from the lessons they (presumably) still teach in J-school, has agreed to an early resignation from her investigative correspondent’s position at CBS News.

Who’s Ready To Talk About Climate Change All Night? Senate Democrats

Why this sounds like a good idea during an election year is anybody’s guess, but a bunch of Senate Democrats are planning to stage a faux-filibuster tonight to draw attention to the evils of man-made climate change. The effort, headed by Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) is supposed to last until 9 a.m. Eastern time tomorrow. […]

Gay Conservatism A Non-Issue At CPAC 2014, But Progressives Take Shots Anyway

Whether to cast the canopy of the conservative Big Tent wide enough to welcome homosexuals into the fold has largely been a non-issue at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, thanks in no small part to the controversial dis-invite of another marginal group: conservative atheists. This year’s spat between the American Atheists and the American […]

Is Arizona Finally Turning On John McCain?

Should Senator John McCain seek another Senate term in 2016, all that matters, perhaps, is that he’s popular inside his State. But according to a new poll, McCain is now the least popular Senator in America. If he doesn’t recover, will McCain finally bow out gracefully?

Two new surveys reveal something President Barack Obama and his Congressional yes-men (and women) should have known – indeed, according to some single-payer prognosticators, have known – all along: uninsured Americans, the people intended to benefit the most from Obamacare, are all but refusing to sign up for it. As The Washington Post reported today, the […]

McConnell’s CPAC Gun Stunt A Cheap Shot At Conservatives

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), already an odd fellow amid the heady mix of conservatives and libertarians at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, knew his only reason for appearing at the event would be to pander to the few stragglers in the GOP’s anti-establishment movement gullible enough to believe whatever he had to […]
