BIO

Jayson Veley started his broadcasting career in 2009 with The Junior Factor, a local access television show that he co-hosted with a friend and aired until 2012. Shortly after, he took on a bigger project — launching a network called Junior Factor Nation. The network consists of several different talk radio programs, all hosted by conservatives in their teens and early twenties. His own show, Factor Talk Radio, airs from 7-8 PM on Monday and Thursday nights. Veley plans on continuing with radio after college, hoping to become the next Mark Levin or Rush Limbaugh.

 

 

Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or another capacity?

Right now, we are seeing our young people being indoctrinated with liberal propaganda like never before. Both the mainstream media and the public education system are conveying a false narrative — that the Founding Fathers were nothing but a bunch of racists, the Constitution is outdated, and America really isn’t the greatest country on earth after all. Once these ideas have been ingrained in the minds of the youth, the whole notion of conservatism is essentially eliminated. The progressives are succeeding in their quest to make things like income equality, socialism, and political correctness “cool” among the youth. That is why right-of-center youth MUST become involved immediately — to combat this indoctrination, which is destroying our future. Now is the time to speak without fear.

 

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

If there is one thing that I have noticed, it is that young people do not like authority — they don’t like being told what to do or how to do it. This, believe it or not, is the key to successfully conveying a conservative message to the youth. If Republicans in office reached out to the Millennial generation and said “we are the party that believes in staying out of your way,” while at the same time saying “the Democrats are the ones who want to tell you what to do,” I believe that we will see young people abandoning liberalism by the millions. To deliver this message, I think more elected officials should be speaking at high schools and colleges at every chance.

 

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

10 years from now, I want the conservative movement to be stronger than ever. I want the values of personal responsibility and liberty to exist in the heart of every American. I want the people to be well aware that tyranny is never more than one generation away, and that freedom must be defended constantly if we are to remain the greatest nation on earth. I also hope that the definition of conservatism is not altered in any way. Right now, we have several Republicans in office who call themselves conservatives, yet stand for things like gun control and amnesty. This is not the definition of conservatism now, and I hope that it won’t be the definition in 10 years.

John Oliver gloats over net neutrality

John Oliver, who once spurred his followers to crash the FCC’s website demanding net neutrality, is positively gleeful over the news that the agency has approved rules to regulate the internet like a public utility.

Biden jokes about his creepy photos

Remember that time Joe Biden got close to Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter’s wife?

The 'Notorious RBG' takes over SNL
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg gives pretty hilarious and biting interviews in real life — “not 100 percent sober” ringing any bells? — but Kate McKinnon’s version of the “Notorious RBG” on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” may just take the cake. From jokes about her morning exercise routine to her sexy dreams about […]
Jimmy Kimmel 'censors' Obama

Thanks to some mischievous editing from Jimmy Kimmel, these originally innocent TV clips will put your mind straight in the gutter.

White House

Calling for cooperation, Obama engages in confrontation

WASHINGTON (AP) — Amid appeals for bipartisanship, President Barack Obama in just three days has provoked Republicans on issues as disparate as immigration, Wall Street and the Keystone XL pipeline — a combative mix of defense and offense that underscores Washington's political realignment.

It’s on: Obama follows through and vetoes Keystone pipeline

Defying the Republican-run Congress, President Barack Obama rejected a bill Tuesday to approve construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, wielding his veto power for only the third time in his presidency.

Joe Biden—everyone’s favorite creeper and truth-bomb-dropper.

MSNBC Host: Obama’s terrorism summit is a ‘dog and pony show’
You know it’s bad when President Obama has even lost the support of MSNBC. MSNBC Host Andrea Mitchell basically called the White House’s Summit on “Countering Violent Extremism” a farce during her show Wednesday. “Here he has the summit, no heads of government coming, the participation has not been at a particularly high level. We’ll have […]

Congress

Dems worry about Warren's leftward push

The Hill reports that Democrats are beginning to worry about Elizabeth Warren's gravitational pull on the party's direction. It's a black hole of progressivism, baby.

Boehner: GOP infighting over 'tactics'
After a week that saw Republican infighting leading to a dramatic near-shutdown situation for the Department of Homeland Security, House Speaker John Boehner was questioned on CBS’s “Face the Nation” about his leadership. Boehner downplayed the divisions and said that it wasn’t the big picture that they disagreed on, but rather how to accomplish it. […]
DCCC fundraises off shutdown that didn't happen
Democrats really jumped the gun on this one. It seems that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee was in such a hurry to fundraise over their hatred for Republicans this weekend that they were willing to spread a little misinformation to do so. The DCCC emailed supporters Saturday morning incorrectly saying that Republicans had allowed the Department of […]
Rand Paul calls on Hillary to retire

Rand Paul’s speech at CPAC Friday felt a lot like a campaign rally—and the crowd left little room to doubt that they wanted it that way, breaking out into chants of “President Paul! President Paul!” at least three times over the course of his remarks.

Cruz: Obama, Carter similarities 'uncanny'
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has his sights set on 2016, but he is not very optimistic about what will happen both at home and abroad in the mean time. Cruz laid out his predictions for the direction he believes President Obama is leading the country in during a round table event with reporters and bloggers […]
