Lately, conservative pundits like Glenn Beck and Hugh Hewitt have been questioning why America seems so apathetic about ISIS. Beck says Americans don’t realize how serious Islamic terrorism has become; we are on the verge of World War III. ISIS has expanded under Obama, even though, as […]
President Obama’s ill-considered attempts to negotiate with Iran suggest that he still hopes to be remembered for “peace,” but he has engaged in scores of military actions around the world, with few successes other than killing bin Laden. It was considered premature to award him the Nobel Peace […]
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in 2007 over President Bush’s objections.
Almost half the Senate — nearly every Republican — warned the Iranian government in a letter on Monday that if Obama makes an agreement with Tehran, […]
Political discourse has degenerated in recent years into petty insults and fake offendedness. Instead of debating the merits of issues, the focus in politics has changed to gotcha moments. Social media and TV shows are nauseatingly full of them. Both the insults and the hyped up responses […]
Nigel Farage, leader of the UKIP
I attended the annual Conservative Political Action Conference this past weekend, and as usual, it ended with a much hyped but slanted presidential straw poll. Alternative conservative Rand Paul came in first place, followed by Scott Walker, then […]
Students at Benchmark Preschool and Elementary School in Phoenix
If you haven’t paid close attention to the school choice movement over the past 10 years, you might not realize how much it has changed. Due to lawsuits and other limitations, innovators have figured out that tuition […]
Mired in scandal, the longtime Democrat governor of Oregon, John Kitzhaber, finally stepped down from office last week. Plenty of Democrat politicians become embroiled in scandals yet continue serving in office for many years, so what made this different? Kitzhaber took on a powerful government union and […]
State bars are acquiring a chilling reputation for misusing the dues of attorneys forced to join them, including using those dues to target conservative attorneys. Right-leaning attorneys are frequently disbarred and disciplined for actions completely unrelated to the practice of law, a gross overreach […]
In recent years, conservative politicians have found themselves prosecuted not for the types of crimes elected officials committed in the past like theft, bribery and nepotism, but instead for nebulous sounding activity, the kind where it is difficult to understand why exactly something was wrong. It has proven easy for Democrat prosecutors to convict each […]
The North American Idea is one man’s version of the “European Idea,” also known as the European Union – the result of multi-national social, economic and political integration of a disparate people. The authors of the recent Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) task force […]
The Washington Examiner has the exclusive story about today’s launch of the new site I am working for. Today happens to be the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, which has special meaning for the Catholics onboard, as St. Dominic started his order of friars […]
Dear French personnes,
I’ve been deep in thought while drinking a Double Ristretto Venti Half-Soy Nonfat Organic Chocolate Brownie Iced Vanilla Double-Shot Gingerbread Frappuccino at Starbucks, and feel like I owe an apology to you people for ditching France last Sunday. I realize over 40 world […]
Last week, John Boehner (R-Ohio) easily won re-election as Speaker of the House. Only 25 Republicans defected, with 216 Republicans voting for him. In the days before the election, there was a flurry of emails and activity on social media about the vote, calling on […]
San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer
Although man-made global warming has been thoroughly exposed as an embarrassing scam, the green movement is strangely expanding, not retreating. A member of Congress privately told me this is because the green movement is completely driven by […]
Since forming a presidential exploratory committee earlier this month, Jeb Bush is being considered a serious Republican candidate for president. But as George Will astutely pointed out last week, Bush has two significant hurdles; his support for Common Core and […]
Seattle’s Socialist city councilwoman, who got the minimum wage increased to $15/hr.
I left Washington state about 20 years ago for Arizona. A Washington native, I had become fed up with the left-wing politics of Seattle. A couple of years ago, I moved back to the Pacific […]
Diane Douglas, a little-known, outspoken opponent of Common Core who ran for Arizona Superintendent of Schools on that issue, surprised everyone this fall when she won. Incredibly, only five days after the election – the day it was announced she had won – a couple of opponents […]
Gun owners illegally transfer firearms at the rally in front of police.
Fed up with the passage of an 18½-page incoherent, rambling, unconstitutional gun control initiative that was bankrolled by billionaires, gun owners across Washington state […]
Just starting to add photos to this now….more coming later today and tomorrow….
Gun owners violating I-594 by transferring their guns to each other.
A concealed weapons permit owner burns his permits in a fire pit.
Race is like gender. As society becomes more equal in those areas, leftist instigators resort to making up conflicts in order to create victim status where there is no longer much left. The Ferguson riots are a classic example. Every day across the country, police officers shoot […]
Photos from the rioting in Ferguson and around the country after the jury announced its decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson over the shooting of Michael Brown on November 24th. All photos are from Twitter #Ferguson as they were posted throughout the evening.
Years of massive corruption by the man known for stirring up race relations and making them worse are finally being exposed. While flying around the country first class, dressed in lavish suits, and most recently stirring the pot in Ferguson, Mo., Al Sharpton has avoided paying millions […]
Obama’s frequent vacations and increase in golfing excursions have become bizarre, considering so many continue to struggle economically almost six years into his presidency, and the world is being rocked by an epidemic of Islamic jihadist torture and horrendous murders, moving increasingly closer to our shores. Few […]
Obama appointed left-wing academic John Holdren as his senior advisor on science and technology issues in 2009. Holdren is a zealous proponent of sustainability measures and claims man is causing global warming. Holdren recently expressed an interest in implementing government regulations and mandates to coerce […]
