The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments last week in the Hobby Lobby case, to decide whether a business that provides health-care insurance to its employees can be forced to include abortifacients in its coverage. Hobby Lobby filed a […]
How can the United States of America jump-start job creation? Obviously there’s nobody better to answer that question than a politician who’s been on the U.S. government payroll for nearly half a century and has never owned or operated a business – Vice President Joe Biden. “There’s no reason […]
“Mr. President, we will not let you run roughshod over our rights. We will challenge you in the courts, we will battle you at the ballot box. Mr. President, we will not let you shred our Constitution… It is decidedly not a time for the faint of […]
The Republican National Committee recently passed a resolution, by the unanimous vote of its National Committeepeople, calling for the creation of a national Monetary Commission. This legislation is prime sponsored in the House of Representatives by Joint Economic Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Tx) and in the US […]
Crony Socialism is, in part, the government cutting special deals for certain companies – at the expense of other companies, and the free market.
It is particularly pathetic when companies publicly troll for this treatment. It’s almost as […]
There has been a lot of talk or writing last week about the housing bubble. And that the so called mortgage fraud that was to be taken to the wood shed is another Obama fantasy that just ain’t happening. […]
Ever since the 2009 advent of the Tea Party, Democrats on Capitol Hill and the liberal media have been obsessed with its destruction. Of course such a response is entirely understandable, since a cohesive and effective alliance of grassroots […]
“I [sic] give my left n** to bang down your door and come for your gun,” said the cop. This statement, made by Branford, Ct., police officer Joseph Peterson in a Facebook conversation earlier this month, created quite a blogosphere firestorm. Internet commenters from Sacramento to Saratoga […]
We shouldn’t be talking about 2016. It’s 2014 and there are obviously important mid-term elections in November. Beyond those, in 2015 there are significant local and state contests across the country, which in many ways are more important than this year’s horseraces. However, discussing the next presidential […]
A few years ago, I was privileged to hear Justice Antonin Scalia speak at my husband’s alma mater, Iona College. On display, among other things, were the wit and wisdom which have made him perhaps the most […]
Dilige, et quod vis fac—“Love, and do what you will.”
According to the theologian love is not restricted to realm of […]
While Barack Obama’s recent telephone conversation with Russian president Vladimir Putin about the Crimean standoff has been widely reported, the exact substance of the discussion has remained a mystery.
That is, until now.
Owing to highly placed confidential sources, I’m pleased to report that I have become […]
The concept that the whims of public opinion, the fads of the moment, or the opinions of an ideological opponent should fundamentally alter what a particular political party stands for has always seemed rather odd to me. It is an argument I see trotted out in articles […]
A preferred ploy of left-wing change agents is to ridicule critics when they point out the undeniable parallels between the goals of today’s “progressive” movement, to include the Democratic Party in general, and the goals of the early, and very much still alive, communist movement.
If, for […]
As a major power Russia has always had a problem. That problem is its coastline, or rather the lack thereof. Compare it to America and its three coasts, all of which have numerous warm water port facilities, and the problem becomes stark. Russia has a lot of coast, but much of it is either […]
Past aggression is resolutely fought but the present’s cases are met with restraint.
Much that comments upon Russia’s Crimean adventure is self-serving. Some moves are made to act as excuses to:
(1) Maintain the moral high ground while
(2) A costly response is avoided […]
The Brussels’ home of the U.S. Ambassador to NATO received $704,198 in gardening and landscaping services. The purchase included, “960 violas, 960 tulips, 960 begonias, 72 Japanese evergreen shrubs, 504 ivy geraniums, 168 […]
After young and healthy Marine Matt Parker fought for his country in the Middle East, he mysteriously came down with tumors. Now, he finds himself without adequate help from the country he fought for. I’ve known Matt since he was a small child; our families grew […]
Here is a joke, entitled “Looking for Work,” that has worked its way around the Internet:
An Israeli doctor says: “In Israel, medicine is so advanced that we cut off a man’s testicles, put them on another man and in 6 weeks, he is […]
Will Americans continue allowing a radicalized environmental agenda to animate Washington, one that prohibits the utilization of natural resources – oil in particular – and that squelches the nation’s economy? Or could it be that, at such a time as this, rationality might take-hold in the USA yet again?
As if our own problems aren’t […]
During an interview with Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto on Friday, the man known by many as “America’s Toughest Sheriff” said he believes that the Obama administration’s claim that more people in the U.S. illegally have been deported than ever before since President Barack Obama took office […]
It is interesting how wealthy liberals are continually blaming the American middle class for global warming, terrorism, and pretty much all of the world’s problems. Simply put, it is all your fault. Our Consumption Factor Imperils Us All (http://www.international.ucla.edu/asia/news/article.asp?parentid=87722) “People in the third world are aware of […]
