The 25 Best Blogs Now

This is my list of the 25 most important blogs to follow right now, right now meaning in these times. These blogs are leading the charge against Obamacare, runaway government power grabs, entrenched politicians who care nothing about the Constitution, those who would take our guns, those who would impoverish us all in the name of fighting climate change, radical race baiters, and radical Feminists, and yes, the Islamization movement that would have us bow to Sharia Law. In short these are the 25 best blogs to read if you love America, our Constitution, and liberty! 

No, I did not include this blog, although I think it is right up there with those I did list.

As an aside, ALL the blogs on my blogroll rock, and deserve special mention for fighting for our founding principles, so no offense at all is intended to those not listed here. WE appreciate all they do

Hey look kids, Dear Leader wants you to ignore those “bloggers”

Chris has the correct response

Please do not adjust your set, state-run media will tell you everything you need to know. Bloggers?We’re the enemy. Your president said so today.

… now that the government has reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio …

Spoken like a true Marxist there Mr.President, but i echo what Mr. Wysocki says

You don’t get to supercede the First Amendment. Not today. And not tomorrow. I don’t care how much of a dictator you fancy yourself to be. In the immortal words of Ronald Reagan, I paid for this microphone. And no pissant community organizer is gonna take it away from me. 

Amen!

 

Most Influential Bloggers?

Ed and I have been named as two of the most influential bloggers around. The Lonely Conservative, Mind Numbed Robot, Matt at Conservative Hideout and William Teach have all been influenced by us in one way or another. So, now I have to answer some questions, nominate some other bloggers, and post this. The rules

According to whoever came up with this little exercise, there is no actual voting, it’s just a fun way to bring recognition to other blogs and bloggers that are out there.

Here are the rules:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you

3. Answer 7 questions decided up by your nominator

4. Nominate ( no limit of nominations ) other bloggers for this award and link back to them.

5. Notify those bloggers of the award requirements.

Post THIS spiffy award!

MIB

Now for the questions I am asking of the bloggers I nominate

1. Why did you start a political blog, and when?

2. Who is the one person still living that you would most like to meet and chat with?

3. Which historical figures do you most admire? Name the top 5

4. Would you replace Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Roberts if given the opportunity, and if so why and replace with whom?

5. If you were governor of your state, what would be your first action?

6. Who are your biggest crushes in the blogosphere/media/sports media?

7. If you could go back and change history, would you?

Now, the questions asked of me.

1. Why did you start a political blog and when?

I started this blog in June 2008. I had been writing op-ed columns for some internet sites and local papers since 1996 and I was burned out on that, too much structure. I needed something different, and I started reading Michelle Malkin’s Hot Air, which was a lot better when Michelle ran it by the way. She inspired me to  start blogging, which is why I refer to her as my  blogging role model. I wanted to do the blog with somebody, and one name popped into my head, Edward Daley. We had known each other since around 2000, and I knew how talented and passionate Ed is. He was my first choice.

2. Who is the one person still living that you would most like to meet and chat with?

Several names come to mind. Michelle Malkin obviously, also Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, and Mark Steyn. But the one person would be Dennis Prager I think. Fascinating, and wise man.

3. Would you replace Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Roberts if given the opportunity, and if so why and replace with whom?

Hell yes, he is a traitor in my view. He knew what was right, and went the political route. There is no American I loathe more than him, he is a disgrace. My replacement pick would be Clarence Thomas.

4. If you could visit one nation you have never visited before, what nation would that be?

Scotland

5. What is something you would collectively change about humanity?

I would want people to care about character, depth and substance rather than style and image.

6. If you could stand up in front of the elected GOP leadership, what would you tell them?

I would assert to them that they must BELIEVE in Conservative principles, and stop trying to make the media and Democrats like them. The Democrats are NOT our friends. I would also tell them to look at the political candidates the media and Democrats attack, those are the candidates they fear the most. Also I would try not to curse but it would be hard, as stupidity really agitates me.

7. If you could change any law or practice in the USA, what would it be and why?

So many to change, so little time. I would try to end all laws that attempt to supplant personal responsibility and choice with governmental rules.

Now on to the blogs I find influential.

And now, Ed injects his own thoughts into the mix.

1. Why did you start a political blog and when?
I’ve created several political blogs since around 2002, but none of them really took off due to my complete unwillingness to market them or even share their content with anyone other than my cat. Basically, my personal sites were just depositories for links to other websites that I liked, and I would occasionally post my own op-eds on them along with whatever other weird crap I’d created… pictures, parody song clips, videos, etc.

Then one day several years back I was chatting with Gator Doug on a political forum he was running, and he asked if I’d like to be a contributor to his new blog. For some strange reason he had already decided to include my last name in its title, so I figured I’d post a few things on it in order to seem a little less like the ungrateful jackass that I usually am.

For the first year or so I only dropped by the site maybe two or three times a week and posted articles on it even less often. Over time, however, I began to realize that The Daley Gator really didn’t suck as much as I’d first suspected, and if I just started getting into the habit of posting regular articles on it, it might end up sucking even less.

Not long after that day I figured out that you can actually get OTHER people to read your blog if you take a few minutes to tell them that it does, in fact, exist. Then I figured out that things like facebook and twitter could be used as tools to spread the site’s content around the web, thereby driving even more traffic to it.

Anyway, I think that answers the question… or, perhaps not, still it does answer a few questions that were never even asked, so I feel satisfied.

2. Who is the one person still living that you would most like to meet and chat with?
Hmmm… Well, I supposed that would have to be Newt Gingrich, or “The Newtster“, as I like to call him. I’d love to sit down with him and ask one or two questions which have haunted my mind for a while now, questions like: how the hell does an obviously brilliant man like you end up co-starring in a global warming PSA with Nancy freakin’ Pelosi?! Did you have a minor stroke or something during the last decade that escaped my notice? Oh, and why is it that every single RINO idiot who’s ever run for president has had a better campaign organization than you did in 2012?

3. Would you replace Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Roberts if given the opportunity, and if so why and replace with whom?
It depends. Do I also get to throw his sorry ass off the court completely along with every other smarmy, activistic douchebag currently infesting it? If so, then yes… yes I would.

As for whom I’d replace him with, only one name immediately comes to mind… Mark R. Levin Esq.!

4. If you could visit one nation you have never visited before, what nation would that be?
My first choice would have to be Ireland, because – a.) I have an Irish name. b.) I like Guinness Stout. c.) In Ireland they speak a language which is not entirely dissimilar to English. And d.) I’ve always heard that Irish chicks put out.

5. What is something you would collectively change about humanity?
The inexplicable need most folks seem to have for asking me silly questions.

6. If you could stand up in front of the elected GOP leadership, what would you tell them?
To quote the famed, American real estate magnate, Donald Trump, “You’re fired!”

7. If you could change any law or practice in the USA, what would it be and why?
Just one? Holy crap! Uh… okay, so I guess I’d change the law that bans me from swatting people I disapprove of over the head with a rolled-up newspaper whenever I see fit. I mean, sometimes ya just gotta blow off steam, right? Am I right?!

Okay then, I guess this is the part of the excercize where I post my nominees for the 2013 “Most Influential Blogger” award. Oh sure, I could compile an extensive list of websites that fit the bill, but frankly, I’m much too lazy to do that, so instead I’ve decided to limit my selections to only two.

They are:

Pat Dollard, because nothing gets by this patriotic American.

And…

Weasel Zippers, because with a name like Weasel Zippers, it has to be good.

5 Reasons Why The Daley Gator Should Be Your Conservative Blog Of Choice In 2013


1.) The Daley Gator is run by two genuinely conservative (aka God-fearing, gun-owning, anti-abortion, leftist-hating, oil-loving, RINO-bashing, Tea Party-supporting, Obama-mocking, Constitution-respecting, America-defending, law-abiding, border-securing, fiscally responsible) men… of mostly Irish heritage.

2.) The Daley Gator is way cool! Doug and I post the most interesting news and opinion articles, videos, and hot chick pictorials that you’re likely to find anywhere on the net, and the only times we find ourselves lacking in these respects is when we’re either too drunk, hungover, crestfallen or pissed off to bother… and that’s not very often.

3.) We’re classy sons o’ bitches! Hell, we OOZE class. In fact, The Daley Gator is so chock full o’ class that once you’ve left this site, the class that’s rubbed off on you’re clothes will linger long after you’ve washed them… and in rare cases, our classiness has been known to clean a viewer’s apparel all by itself. True story.

4.) The Daley Gator exists for the sole purpose of helping conservative Americans (see definition above) take back their country from the vile, pernicious, immoral, military-hating, putrid, tax-and-spend, treasonous, violent, corrupt, gun-grabbing, parasitic, baby-killing, self-loathing, hypocritical, racist, moronic, evil leftists among us. If that’s not a noble endeavor, then I don’t know what the word noble means.

5.) Doug and I are too damned old to give half a shit about offending people anymore… and to tell you the truth, I don’t think either one of us ever worried much about being offensive to society at large when we were young. For the most part, society can bend over and kiss my royal, Irish ass! I, like my good friend Doug, am all about individuality, and if you’ve got a problem with that concept, I suggest you turn your sorry self around and get the fuck outa here!

In conclusion, The Daley Gator is a really good news-and-information blog, and it was one before I – Edward L. Daley – came on board more than two years ago. It’s a good blog because the folks behind it are good Americans who know the difference between right and wrong, between good and evil, and who possess more than their fair share of intelligence, education, morality and wisdom.

Join us in this new year as we strive to reclaim our common birthright for ourselves and our progeny.

And may God bless us, everyone.
