BREAKING: Obama has lost Peggy Noonan!
Four years ago Peggy Noonan was one of a group of erstwhile Republicans who succumbed in varying degrees to the Cult of Obama. Noonan, who’s claim to fame rests entirely on having written some very good speeches for President Reagan, also saw fit to join in the general trashing of Sarah Palin in her newly assumed position of “thinking conservative”. Now after three years of | Read More »
Tragic and dishonest distortion of the Commerce Clause
The impressive sounding Commerce Clause has been used for roughly 80 years to steal our liberty and allow the exponential growth of federal power. That any judge ever assented to the bludgeoning and torture of a simple sentence in The Constitution is regrettable, but that conservative lawyers have aided that process through timidity is a travesty. To begin let’s take a look at the infamous | Read More »
Feeling good about the Supreme Court so far.
I have been arguing over in this thread that I believe there is both a strong basis and considerable reason to hope for an overturning of Obamacare. In coverage of today’s session the Washington Post provides quotes from four center-right justices that point in that direction. Clarence Thomas rarely speaks during public sessions but he is viewed as the most likely justice to vote to | Read More »
Logic dictates choosing the best option. Romney for President.
As we trudge through life the wise among us always strive to make the best decision at each point where one is required. Whether it is deciding to not throw rocks through Old Man Smith’s window, or deciding not to punch someone in the mouth, or deciding to go to the university that gives us the best chance to succeed regardless of how unsexy the | Read More »
Regarding the quill67 vs mbecker908 cage match
A standard feature of political discourse between putative allies is when each side claims the other is an illegitimate proponent of the faith. This is currently on display for viewing in the competing threads for and against Rick Santorum’s proposed manufacturing tax policy. Unlike Quill and Becker I have not given enough thought to the specific proposal to take a comprehensive position, however I do | Read More »
Santorum has earned a one-on-one match with Romney
Back in December I endorsed Newt Gingrich. I sent his campaign a relatively generous donation and have stayed with him through thick and thin over the past three months. With the failure yesterday to win Alabama and/or Mississippi, the Gingrich campaign has stalled and, while nothing is certain in this weird primary season, likely will now either quickly crash or slowly flutter downward like a | Read More »
We lost the war now we’re just negotiating the surrender terms.
Our world has gone mad. Up is down and right is wrong. Civilization is on a steep declining slope toward a recreated Babylon. In these perilous times we have effectively lost our right to free speech. Sure we can still curse each other, or say the president, or senator, or governor is a loser, or loudly pound the table with our shoe and denounce Obama-care. | Read More »
Kathleen Parker reads Redstate
I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this clip from Meet the Press: http://video.msnbc.msn.com/meet-the-press/46530957 The reason this comment struck me so forcefully is that recently a diarist on RedState said precisely the same thing. http://www.redstate.com/barleycorn/2012/02/01/mitt-romney-is-a-dork/ Coincidence? I don’t think so.
Sharia Law enforced in Pennsylvania
If this is in fact an accurate report, then we are getting close to the abyss indeed. According to Jonathan Turley a Pennsylvania Judge has essentially invoked Sharia law in a case where a Muslim attacked an atheist marching in a parade. The atheist was portraying “Zombie Mohammad”. Here is part of the rambling dissertation by “Judge” Mark Martin as he chastises the victim. | Read More »
Conservatives can’t win if they…..
1. …primary right of center incumbents in swing states. Yes, Richard Lugar is who is foremost in my mind. It doesn’t matter that he has become an arrogant jerk over the last 30 years in Washington, spending millions to take him out is not a high percentage move. Orrin Hatch, different state, different story. And before you bring up Florida and Marco Rubio, Charlie Crist | Read More »
