When leftists start talking about “civility,” watch out for your freedom of speech. This again comes to mind with reports that some media outlets are eliminating online comments sections in civility’s name. And while it’s not a First Amendment violation (these are private-sector actions), it is largely motivated […]
One thing worse than supporting bad policy is knowingly supporting bad policy.
Worse still is knowingly supporting bad policy and shielding yourself from its destructive effects — while visiting that policy on children.
There has been much debate recently surrounding so-called “gun-free zones,” places such as schools, […]
Anchor babies is an interesting concept. If you can have a baby in the United States they don’t care what planet you are from, you automatically have a right to become an American citizen. We really don’t know how many people have become American citizens in this […]
Last month, I wrote about a high school football coach at my alma mater who was bullied into dropping a voluntary prayer he performed on the 50-yard line after games. He was told if he didn’t stop praying, he would be fired. After this all came out […]
Over the last few weeks, there has been a firestorm of controversy about guns in the USA. Now let’s just forget about the Second Amendment for now. Let’s just forget about the Constitution as a whole, for a second.
I know what many of you are saying […]
“This is something we should politicize.” – Barack Obama, remarking on the Umpqua Community College shootings
As Ronald Reagan would have said, “Well, there you go again.” Is there no shame in our current president whatsoever? The victims’ bodies weren’t even cold and Obama was […]
The top 5 countries for mass shootings per capita all have “restrictive” gun policies.
Another horrendous massacre has occurred at one of our schools, in one of our quiet, upstanding neighborhoods; this time Roseburg, Oregon. We are shaken, and our shared center of gravity is suddenly thrown into […]
Political correctness has invaded my alma mater. I was disappointed to receive an email from our hometown pastor last week, informing me that the assistant football coach at my high school alma mater in Washington state was being investigated for praying with his team. My late brother played […]
Adam Freedman’s timing in publishing A Less Perfect Union: The Case for States’ Rights is fortunate, sorely divided as Americans are in regard to the language of the Declaration, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions. Mr. Freedman undertakes to renew […]
Since the adoption of our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, there has existed an ongoing struggle for separation and balance of powers between the three branches of the Federal Government, as well as between that Federal Government under Federal Supremacy and States Rights under the Tenth […]
Kim Davis, the Democrat Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses because of religious objections, was ordered to jail for contempt of court last Thursday.

Lately the media has made a huge issue of immigration, especially illegal immigration and the whole Anchor Baby issue. This is only because Donald Trump has opened his big mouth numerous times on the subject and forced the other Republican Candidates for President to react and comment. […]
What do the ingredients in this potpourri of observations about current events have in common? Truth and high toxicity.
According to their About Us statement, “Stop This Insanity, Inc. is a national non-profit 501 (c)(4) organization created in 2009 for the education and advancement of the constitutional conservative values of the Tea Party Movement. This organization was created to help give the power of government back to […]
Noviana Malewa after “Month of Peace”
Remarking inconvenient truths about radical Islam can ruin your career–but not doing so will ruin lives.
The Founding Fathers knew what Lord John Dalberg-Acton knew. And far too few of us know the totality of Lord Acton’s sage sentiment: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”
“Great men are almost always bad men.” America […]
The talking heads of the establishment are heaping scorn on Donald Trump like squawking crows defecate on those underneath the phone lines where they sit. The long knives are coming out of the sheaths of the New York-Washington literati. Everyone is attacking Donald Trump. But why is such animosity spewing from our media, our corporations, […]
At least one former and four current Senators, as well as one former Representative are running for president. Unfortunately, well-intended but easily misunderstood roll call voting analyses often enable legislators to lie about their true positions instead of revealing them, thus doing more harm than good.
This Martian artifact “shouldn’t be there”.
There’s a heck of a lot of sophisticated technology we’re not being told about—and the monsters playing with it are terrestrial rather than alien.
Several years ago Representative Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) stated:
“When I went to law school they said the law’s what a judge says it is. Whether it is constitutional or not is going to be whether the Supreme Court says it is.”
Such an opinion runs counter to […]
