About Marie Stroughter

The traditional bio for Marie Stroughter would be: “Loving wife to hubby of over 20 years, and homeschooling mom to three adorable kids (and one spunky cat!).” Getting a little bolder would be to say that she is an adoptive mom of two, and a freelance writer and copyeditor. Unique factoids might include: social media addict….uh, maven, avid knitter and Founding Mama of her local knitting Guild, and a devotee of all things gadgety. The rabble-rousing version would read: “Marie Stroughter is the activist mom turned co-founder of African-American Conservatives, and, the opinionated, no-holds-barred host of the African-American Conservatives radio show carried on Blog Talk Radio, and, From The Right Radio where she chats weekly with political movers and shakers like Karl Rove, Steve Forbes, Michelle Malkin, Star Parker, Newt Gingrich, Senator Jim DeMint, and other conservative all-stars and rising stars in addition to her contributor status with Breitbart.com and the iVillage #iVoices and iVote projects.” But the latter would be a run-on sentence, so we’ll stick with the others.

Barack Obama and Things That Make You Go ‘Hmmmm’

Twenty-five years ago, The Arsenio Hall Show was the hottest ticket in late-night television. It even spawned the career of a (then) almost unknown politician — one Bill Clinton, who made playing the sax look cool. The show also spawned … Continue reading

Barack Obama’s Scandalous Alphabet Soup

As a child, the most pressing question for my generation was, “How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?” The answer, of course, was, “The world may never know…” That’s an … Continue reading

Hillary Clinton’s Money

Let’s set aside the stink of Benghazi that still clings to her almost two years later, but can someone tell me, with our debt over $17.5 trillion, how we could even breathe Hillary Clinton’s name in the same sentence as … Continue reading

Why Barack Obama is Nothing Like Jesus Christ

Despite anything a Hollywood “comedian” might tell you, or some common artist who paints the President as dying on a cross, newsflash: Barack Obama is not the Savior. Comedian Jamie Foxx made remarks at a recent awards show that I … Continue reading

My Thoughts on Election 2012: This World is Not My Home

Those who know me well know I am rarely silent about anything! However, the events of the last two weeks have temporarily rendered me speechless. Not because I don’t have anything to say — I do, and plenty of it … Continue reading
