Exposing the Myth of Big Government as an Ally of the Average Person

government-Uncle_Sam-61The argument used by liberals since the New Deal is that a bigger federal government is a necessary aid to the poor and average American. It is as if government and the private economy represent two, mutually opposed constituencies. The economy serves the rich and powerful, and […]

Hillary's Hard Choices are About to Get Harder

2013-01-17T015659Z_1_CBRE90G05F200_RTROPTP_3_OSCE-CLINTONI finally finished the epic book by Hillary. I should at least be up for a Nobel peace prize. Obviously the book did not do well. And at the end of the day, it looks like Hillary has not accomplished much in all these so called years of […]

Forcing The Freedom to Vote: Obama’s Oxymoron

wpid-svoped_july20-420x0On March 19th, President Obama remarked to a crowd that America should have mandatory voting.

3 Alternatives to Starbucks’ RaceTogether Campaign

deaecd4b65c24dc9feb64923b663ddc9Espresso makes you hyper. When you’re hyper you sometimes make rash decisions. When you make rash decisions you usually regret it. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz evidently chugged a Venti-five-shot-double-pump-skinny-vanilla-latte on Monday before announcing Starbucks’ new “RaceTogether” public relations stunt. As he describes it, the über-”progressive” head of […]

School Choice Litigation is Winning

What-is-Parental-School-ChoiceThe Franklin Institute recently put on a seminar in Phoenix, Arizona, to educate bloggers about school choice.

The Faithless Elected: Boehner and the House Dons

“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 […]

Speaker Boehner and Frustrated Conservatives

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.

Interventionists Need a Lesson in American Government

In the wake of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress, an e-mail arrived in my inbox declaring “A Quarter of Congressional Democrats Choose to Betray Israel.” Obviously this was intended to get me to click on the linked article, which it succeeded in doing. It was also clearly supposed to outrage me, which […]

It was considered premature to award him the Nobel Peace […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part VI): Science in Genesis – Day Five.

Day Five introduces instinct and reason to the universe, and thus establishes the basis for what will become evil, or sin, and eventually the entire concept of crime.

On a reading of Day Five, that may seem like a rather peculiar conclusion to draw, but I would urge the reader to bear with me. It […]

The Consequences of America’s Asymmetric Politics

LibvsConserv

There is a sharp and consequential asymmetry between left and right in American politics. It is my purpose here to describe the asymmetry and explain both its origins and consequences. But first an important clarification: the asymmetry does not refer to the stark differences in […]

Iran: Why No Deal is Better Than Any Deal

Why do you imagine that Obama is allowing John Kerry to make a deal with Iran? I mean, why any deal AT ALL? In Iran right now, our sanctions are making life VERY uncomfortable for people. Many everyday items can’t be found and friends there have told me […]

Separation of Powers Showdown Escalating Between GOP Senators and Obama

Nancy Pelosi - Assad

Boehner the Traitor

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 […]

Janet Yellen’s Historic Meeting With The Right

jntyln2At CPAC, recently, an estimated 10,000 conservatives and libertarians, together with many presidential aspirants, gathered across the Potomac. They did so amidst massive hoopla and intense media fascination. We in the media are nothing if not suckers for hoopla.

History, however, typically emerges without hoopla. Janet Yellen, […]

Obama’s EPA: Racing Against Time to Pummel the Private Sector

Orwellian Doublethink and Controlled Insanity

orwlndblthnkIn order to control millions of people totalitarian or proto-totalitarian governments find it necessary to somehow prod their subjects into accepting that which is not true. Intelligent people will naturally see the truth and thereby comprehend when government lies to them – and so that’s the rub […]

Duly Noted - What is Wrong Here?
