Political-Industrial Complex Attacks TBOR for Fight Against Gerrymandering

June 25, 2019

The shrill reaction of critics in the political-industrial complex to Take Back Our Republic daring to challenge the redistricting process in Massachusetts are included in this piece in the Talking Points Memo. They are eerily similar to the reaction of the political-industrial complex to this National Review article a year before Take Back Our Republic was formed, when they expressed the same contempt for our now Executive Director’s decision to run Dave Brat against the sitting Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

Opinion: Hyper-Partisan Attacks Undermine Real Threats

October 16, 2018

A credible reform organization alleged an ethics violation against the Trump Administration, and the media was chomping at the bit to run with the story. Outlets like Yahoo, AOL, The Hill, Huffington Post, Newsweek, and others all covered the story leading with the likelihood of a Hatch Act offense. Except, respectfully, the issue really wasn’t a big deal nor was it likely a violation. The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a respected albeit strongly left-leaning reform group, filed […]

Nike has Political Leanings… to the Right?

October 3, 2018

AUBURN, AL- Your ultra conservative friends on Facebook- you know, the ones posting pictures of themselves burning their shoes- may now hate Nike for its recent advertising, but the apparel company’s political leanings may surprise many.

Meet the New Boss …

May 25, 2016

Kudos to Gabrielle Bluestone for her “Meet the New Boss” tagline from The Who song “Won’t Get Fooled Again” in this story.  The line is in reference to the investigation of the current Virginia Democratic Governor being investigated while the most recent Republican Governor waits to hear if the US Supreme Court will overturn his conviction. The Who’s line in “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” concluded, “Meet the new boss …. same as the old boss.” Peter Schweizer, who also serves on […]

An interesting recent vote on a money in politics issue

November 18, 2015

The Roanoke Star reported on voters once again speaking out in favor of addressing corruption related to money in politics. There are many groups advocating most liberal solutions to money in politics, and obviously Take Back Our Republic is more focused on conservative solutions, Represent Us, which led the charge on this vote, is one group that really seems to work toward whatever solutions seem to work – whether making conservatives uncomfortable by using the words “campaign finance reform,” or making liberals uncomfortable by focusing on “government […]
