In 1776, Thomas Paine wrote in his iconic Revolutionary War pamphlet The American Crisis the following:
THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of […]
Government is terrible at…well, pretty much everything. The examples are legion – and myriad.
In large part because government doing anything violates the Wallet Rule.
You go out on a Friday night with your wallet. You then go out the following Friday night with my wallet. […]
One sneaky new way gun-control activists are taking away gun rights is by forcing gun ranges to shut down. By using vague […]
Michelle Malkin said about what happened to Rachel Alexander:
“Make no mistake: This is just another nasty battle in the Left’s long war to marginalize, demonize, and criminalize conservative dissent. The selective protection of free speech is unconscionable. The freedom to blog is under assault on so […]
In the book “Stonewalled”, Sharyl Attkisson shows the answer is “yes”.
Myself, I had thought that the Fast and Furious scheme was simply an effort to trace how guns get to Mexican Cartels, and that though it went horribly wrong, it was non-political.
And indeed […]
It was the best of coverage – it was the worst of coverage.
You’ve heard of Virginia ex-Governor Bob McDonnell, yes? And his wife?
Ex-Virginia Gov. McDonnell […]
It came as a surprise to no one when Hillary Clinton announced on Sunday that she was formally entering the race for president. Most political observers think she will easily win the Democratic nomination, since few Democrats dare to challenge the Clinton dynasty.
The former First Lady, […]
At sometime approximately the same as when this column is being written Hillary Clinton is expected to formally announce her candidacy for President of the United States in an informal manner – Twitter, as opposed to the traditional speech, as used by Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. […]
There’s an old military pilot adage – believed to have been born during World War II.
“When you’re taking flak, you’re right over the target.”
Last week, the Wall Street Journal offered up:
Google Makes Most of Close Ties to White House
When progressives can’t beat Republicans square and fair at the ballot box, they resort to dishonest Alinskyite tactics, such as character assassination and abusing the left-wing dominated legal system. They’ve been after America’s popular Sheriff Joe Arpaio for years and are finally circling around him like sharks. A […]
The Farm Bill is a bane of we Conservatives’ existence – and Reality-based policymaking. It is a relic of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR)’s horrendously failed New Deal – a top-down, central-planning nightmare mess.
And over the last eighty-plus years, FDR’s heinous domestic policy has gone global. […]
In ratifying law-breaking by both President Obama and millions of aliens, Boehner removed any lingering doubt that he is the Democrat-preferred Obama-Pelosi House Speaker. After the amnesty debacle, there can be no doubt that he is not even a RINO; he is the next-best-to-Pelosi front-man for the far left Democrats.
“I won,” declared Barack Obama, adding what is now a cliché: “Elections have consequences.” But, due to endless RINO lying to voters, Boehner and his henchmen have proven that is only partly true. Lying has been central to this country’s decay. First and foremost, campaign lying and liars must be stopped. This is an absolute […]
Reactions to John Boehner’s re-election as Speaker included scant attention to its implications for representative democracy. There is now no way for a majority of voters to obtain representatives who will represent them; and no way to compel a purportedly representative government to comply with their clear wishes on matters they consider most crucial.
House Speaker John Boehner is a traitor to the U.S. Constitution and the American people.
By agreeing to fund ObamaCare as well as President Obama’s Executive Amnesty for illegal immigrants—-and by shamefully attacking his Tea Party Republican colleagues who refuse to go along with such travesties-—Speaker Boehner has demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt […]
Back in 2009 the author published critique of the Supreme Court case of Texas v. White. This case was a Reconstruction Era matter, which Supreme Court Chief Justice Salmon Chase manufactured into an excuse for declaring that the states of the union had no right to leave it once they had joined. Despite this, there […]
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 […]
This gem from John Nolte came across my Twitter feed the other day: “Met Brian Williams once in DC. Starting to wonder about that story he told me about saving all those hostages at Nakotami Plaza. Barefoot.”
Brian Williams is a liar. I don’t mean that as […]
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 display of thousands of law enforcement officials representing departments and agencies throughout the country standing in the streets of the Queens section of New York City on Saturday, to honor one of two police officers assassinated last week, was a sight not seen since the large […]
