Generic Congressional Vote Starting to Look Ugly for Democrats

Generic Congressional Vote Starting to Look Ugly for Democrats

Conventional wisdom about this midterm election is that while Democrats are defending difficult turf in the Senate and face possible substantial losses, the redistricting after the 2010 census eliminated significant ...

Staci Appel (D CAND, IA-03): against taking away terrorist traitors’ passports!

From comments to this post comes a remarkably tin-eared comment by Democratic candidate Staci Appel on whether Americans who join terror groups should be allowed to keep their passports.  I sincerely doubt that anybody here will be surprised to hear that Ms. Appel has a problem with taking away those passports: I would not be urging taking away their passports… I think we need to make sure | Read More »

Bill Bennett paid to pimp for Common Core

Last week Reagan administration Secretary of Education Bill Bennett appeared on the op-ed page of the Wall Street Journal called The Conservative Case for Common Core. That’s the fundamental idea behind a core curriculum: preserving and emphasizing what’s essential, in fields like literature and math, to a worthwhile education.

Obama uses war on ISIS to overthrow Syria’s Assad

One of the things that has intrigued me about the Obama administration’s alleged strategy to combat ISIS is the degree to which it focuses on Syria. Not only are airstrikes within Syria contemplated but another attempt will be made by the administration to arm the Syrian opposition forces. To me this seems counterintuitive. Not only is he heartland of ISIS in Iraq but expanding our | Read More »

What Title II Regulation of the Internet Actually Means

There is a great deal of discussion today about empowering the FCC to regulate internet services providers as if they were public utilities. Supporters of Net Neutrality tend to think this is a good idea, because they fear that ISPs will give discriminatory access to bandwidth, creating a so-called “internet fast lane” for companies with enough capital to pay. The solution, many argue, is to | Read More »

Let me begin with two bits of information: If I made the rules, Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson would be out of the NFL and probably both of them would be doing some time for assault and child abuse. I really don’t care about NFL football.  My sports seasons are MLB and NHL.  I watch the NFL for about 2 weeks before hockey starts.  Remember, | Read More »

Many Insurance Providers are Paying for Abortions under Obamacare

One of the biggest obstacles to the passage of Obamacare was the question of whether it would officially fund abortion. This issue was only resolved, in a manner of speaking, when President Obama signed an executive order barring federal funds from being used to fund abortion, but many of us on the Right knew this would not be the end of it. After all, Barack | Read More »
