Is it time for a Mutiny? Recall Governor Little?

Who is steering our conservative ship Idaho? Captain Bligh? It is seldom that we see governors recalled, although two have been recalled successfully in U.S., with the most recent being Scott Walker of Wisconsin who was victorious in a recall election with the Mayor of Milwaukee. The second was Gray Davis from California in 2003 […]

Is Tommy Ahlquist a Real Conservative or Just Another kind of Crony?

I have to say, after listening to Tommy Ahlquist on the Kevin Miller show answer questions and pontificate about how he is going to fix health insurance, I am even more skeptical of the rhetoric that he has been tossing around in his ads about the other candidates. He had an opportunity to defend himself […]

Response to Rep. Brian Zollinger’s Comments on the Kevin Miller Show 580KIDO

Zollinger’s comments on the grocery tax and election were spot on. The real shame in Idaho politics was allowing Governor Otter to win a third term. He is and always will be a crony establishment politician. He takes care of the lobbyists and those that keep him and the rest of the establishment in office. […]

First You Say You Do and Then You Don’t

We were doing a little more homework on Mr. Ahlquist and read an article written by Kevin Richert in Idaho Education News. After reading the article and listening to a one-hour interview with Mr. Ahlquist, we once again need to question Mr. Ahlquist about his platform on Common Core.

Will the Real Tommy Ahlquist Please Stand Up?

When we first received this letter in our inbox, my first reaction was shock and awe, but then I remembered it was sent out before Tommy Ahlquist had made up his mind which party to run for. The fact that Mr. Ahlquist had to decide which party to run for is in itself very disturbing […]
