In honor of International Women’s Day, the women of Red Alert Politics put together a short list of conservative women who have inspired us. These women have paved the way for us to succeed in a male-dominated world and are true examples of women young female conservatives should model themselves after.

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) took the stage on Friday at Springfeld Highschool in Virginia in front of an energized and packed gymnasium. Hundreds lined up as early as three hours before the rally began to show their support for Rep. Paul Ryan. Along with Ryan, two other notable speakers at the rally were former Congressman Artur Davis (D, then R- AL) and Virginia Attorney Republican General Ken Cuccinelli.
On Friday hundreds of conservative activists gathered on Capitol Hill for a rally to repeal Obamacare organized by Americans For Prosperity (AFP).
The rally coincided with the AFP Foundation’s Defending the American Dream Summit in Washington, D.C., which thousands of conservatives are attending this weekend to show their support for limited government principles and participate in grassroots trainings.
RIVERSIDE, Calif. — In the Inland Empire, an economically depressed region in Southern California, President Obama’s health care law is expected to extend insurance coverage to more than 300,000 people by 2014. But coverage will not necessarily translate into care: Local health experts doubt there will be enough doctors to meet the area’s needs. There are not enough now.
Other places around the country, including the Mississippi Delta, Detroit and suburban Phoenix, face similar problems. The Association of American Medical Colleges estimates that in 2015 the country will have 62,900 fewer doctors than needed. And that number will more than double by 2025, as the expansion of insurance coverage and the aging of baby boomers drive up demand for care. Even without the health care law, the shortfall of doctors in 2025 would still exceed 100,000.
The 2012 Campus Progress National Conference was graced with the early morning presence of the eccentric and vulgar poet, Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai. The Chinese-Taiwanese-American shared a few of her political poems with the young, liberal crowd and while reciting pro-feminism poem “Real Women I Know,” Tsai encouraged weed-smoking and masturbation.
Her other poems included “Black, White, Whatever,” and “ Lilly’s Hands,” a poem about overseas contract workers.
Before reciting “Lilly’s Hands,” Kelly chided U.S. colleges, telling the crowd that “their schools were not doing their job,” because not many of them knew what an overseas contract worker was.
Congresswomen and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) addressed the young attendees of the 2012 Campus Progress National Conference to tout Obama and Democrat’s impact on student loan interest, and to remind the young progressives that government is their solution.
Although it was Congress who passed the law to extend low student rates, Wasserman Schultz credited President Obama also and said, “Congress and President Obama were able to prevent the interest rate on student loans from doubling for those looking to get a college education. Without action, millions of students would have faced owing thousands more in student loan debt.”
At Smart Girl Politics Action’s fourth annual Smart Girl Summit Friday, Hicks, spoke on a “War on Women” panel about the disconnect between women and politics.
Don’t forget to catch Hollywood’s new hit movie, The Obama Effect, which opened Friday.
This new groundbreaking film should be icing on the cake for those in denial about Hollywood’s slobbering love affair with Barack Obama.
Set during the 2008 election, it centers around a man who suffers a heart attack, decides to quit his job and puts his entire life on hold to creepily worship Barack Obama and join his campaign.
What was supposed to be nearly 1,000 protestors on Monday in New York City ended up being only a few dozen in the fight against Mayor Bloomberg’s soda ban. Although their numbers were small, their message was loud and clear for the Mayor, who’s attempt to fight obesity comes in the form of selective food bans, instead of health education and nutritional training.
19-year-old Zach Huff, from the volunteer grassroots organization NYC Liberty HQ, organized the march on City Hall. Huff said the protest was created, “to send a message to Mayor Bloomberg and his administration that they can’t get away anymore with the ideas that they can tell us how much salt to put on our food or what size drinks we can buy.”
Huff expressed his concern to the crowd and shouted, “they already tell us how much water goes through each flush of the toilet and tell us what light bulbs we can buy- what are they going to tell us next, are they going to get in the bedroom?”
Young people were outside the Supreme Court yesterday in full force to make their voices heard in response to the court’s Obamacare ruling.
Although the number of young people in favor of Obamacare outside the court outnumbered the young people against it, both groups represented in their own unique ways.
You can now add Sarah Jessica Parker to the list of celebrities throwing their influence into politics to help Obama win the youth vote.
The Obama campaign’s first national television ad will debut tonight during the MTV Movie Awards, according the Entertainment News. The ad features Parker inviting supporters to her home for a fundraising dinner with the president, herself, Michelle Obama, and Vogue editor-in chief Anna Wintour.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) says the Republican Party needs to be more welcoming to Ron Paul supporters if it wants to reinvigorate the Republican Party.
In a speech at the Cato Institute Paul said he told fellow members of the GOP “there was a whole new positive response of all these new people.”
“I keep trying to convince the Republican Party, you may not like everything that he’s presented, but at least appreciate that your electric is getting bigger, your party is getting bigger,” he said.
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) charged that President Obama and the Democrats are unwilling to compromise on the budget during an appearance on NBC’s Meet The Press Sunday morning.
“The president and his party leaders in the Senate are refusing to do anything to address this debt crisis,” Ryan said.
The House Budget Committee chairman said that who wins in November will determine how or if the debt crisis is resolved.
Ryan, whose proposed budget received 41 votes in last week, has predicted a grim outcome if Obama gets re-elected.
Newark, N.J.’s Democratic Mayor Cory Booker expressed a difference of opinion on Meet the Press Sunday morning with the Obama campaign’s effort to paint Mitt Romney as a greedy Wall Street type by going after Bain Capital.
Booker, who normally agrees with the Obama White House on most issues, said that the attacks on Bain Capital made him “very uncomfortable.”
Defending Bain Capital, Booker said, “I live in a state where pension funds, unions are investing in companies like Bain Capital, they’ve done a lot to support business, to grow business.”
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius gave the commencement address for Georgetown University’s School of Public Policy for the school despite efforts form various conservative Catholic organizations urging another speaker. Sebelius’s address was interrupted by a screaming protestor.
The Cardinal Newman Society and other groups drafted petitions to attempt to remove Sebelius as the speaker for Georgetown University the oldest Catholic and Jesuit school because of her involvement in the Obamacare mandate which would demand that even religious institutions provide free contraception to employees regardless of their religious beliefs.
Mitt Romney is using his first general election ad to describe what he would do on ‘Day One’ as President.
According to the ad, released this morning, on Day One Romney would approve the Keystone Pipeline which would create thousands of jobs that have been blocked due to Obama.
Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) is receiving criticism for getting involved in the 2012 GOP Senate primaries after promising fellow Republicans he wouldn’t try to play kingmaker this year the way he did in 2010.
Republicans on Capitol Hill were angry with DeMint after his PAC donated $500,000 to the Club for Growth, a conservative group that helped Indiana State Treasurer Richard Murdock defeat moderate Senator Dick Lugar,who had served in the US Senate for almost four decades.
DeMint denies that he intended for his donation to go toward beating Lugar, however.
Voters in North Carolina last week approved a state constitutional amendment to define marriage between a man and women. The amendment passed with 61 percent support, which proved the same sex marriage issue is a deal breaker for North Carolinians.
With the latest Rasmussen Reports poll showing presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney surging ahead of the Barack Obama, it is undeniable that the president’s post-referendum announcement of his support for same sex marriage did not play an issue in the recent poll results, which may have seen the April jobs report may have contributed to Obama’s sliding numbers.
The Susan B. Anthony List released a video today titled “Womanhood,” a more accurate depiction of the so-called Republican “War on Women.” In this video’s dystopia, any divergence from the Obama Administration’s conformist concept of what it means to be a “real woman” earns a summary rejection of an “Application for Womanhood.”
Democrats who have claimed that it is the Republicans have started a “War on Women” because the GOP stands up for voices who do not believe that the government should pay for contraception is based on a false assumption that all “real” women expect their birth control to be paid for.
The Cato Institute held a discussion Tuesday evening with Brian Doherty, author of “Ron Paul’s rEVOLution: The Man and the Movement He Inspired” and Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to discuss the Ron Paul’s libertarian movement and its undeniable impact in this election.
Brian Doherty reflected on the first time he met then-former Congressman Ron Paul at University of Florida in 1988 when Paul the Libertarian Party’s nominee for president. There was only about 100 people in attendance curious about the 3rd party candidate. He compared his most recent run in with Congressman-again Ron Paul at UCLA when there was over 7,000 in attendance, and those who were there because not because they were curious, but because they knew about and believed in his message.
