DID THE OSCARS EVER FEATURE LAURA BUSH?: Advancing Conservativism in the ‘Liberal’ Arts

Lisa Mei Norton is a retired Air Force Senior Master Sergeant turned conservative singer/songwriter and is founder and CEO of BigDawg Music Mafia, a free social networking site launched in August 2010 to help showcase Conservative/Libertarian grassroots artists. She is also CEO of BigDawg Music Radio, which features music and radio shows by the members of BigDawg Music Mafia and BigDawg TEA-V, featuring music videos by “BigDawgers.” Ms. Norton is also a columnist for and Smart Girl Nation Magazine. While serving in the Air Force as an airborne Russian linguist, Lisa moonlighted as a lead vocalist in various cover bands at military clubs overseas. In 1990, she competed for and was selected to tour with the elite Air Force “Tops in Blue” entertainment troupe, performing as a vocalist/dancer for military families at 138 bases around the globe. Lisa’s passion for music carried on after retiring from the Air Force in the form of political songwriting with her friend BigDawg Andrew, beginning with the 2008 elections and continuing on with the advent and rise of the Tea Party movement. Lisa works full-time as a defense contractor and, in her “spare time,” does all her songwriting, recording, performing, producing, writing for and Smart Girl Nation, and promoting BigDawg Music Mafia and its members—not to mention, she also hosts four weekly radio shows. To this day, she continues to honor the oath she took to “protect and defend the Constitution.” While she may have hung up her uniform, she intends to do everything in her power to keep the message of freedom alive—and her music is now her weapon of choice.
