American Voters: Let States Decide Same-Sex Marriage Law
On Tuesday April 29th the Supreme Court began hearing oral arguments on the very controversial case of same-sex marriage. The Court will hear arguments surrounding two separate questions: first if same-sex marriages are Constitutional under the 14th Amendment. The second will address whether states banning gay marriage are required to recognize lawful same-sex marriage from elsewhere. Perhaps the most important debate should surround how much | Read More »
Senate Holds Hearings on Medicare Fraud
Crony capitalism comes in many forms but the ability of the American Hospital Association (AHA) to lobby the White House to pull the plug on an anti-fraud program that saved taxpayers nearly $10 billion dollars might constitute the crown jewel of cronyism. When it comes to waste and fraud in government, Medicare appears to be ground zero. Tens of billions of dollar are paid out | Read More »
Google Tacitly Admits Stealing Is a Lousy Thing to Do
The titanically huge mega-corporation Google yesterday took time out from its record-setting-most-money-ever lobbying of Congress to admit – accidentally, perhaps – that the systemic, wholesale stealing of which it is so fond is a lousy thing to do. Which is more than a little ironic – in many, many ways. For instance, Google has ramped up further still their massive lobbying efforts – in large | Read More »

Gay Mafia whacks another victim
Following the uproar over the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that passed in Indiana—and was subsequently retracted—I wrote a piece about a group that Bill Maher once referred to as the “Gay Mafia.” In that piece, we learned about the hit man tactics used by homosexual-extremists to snuff-out anyone who opposed their radical agenda, especially when that objection was based on religious freedom. A few days | Read More »
GOP should use “Baltimore” to defeat Obama’s amnesty
At some time in the near future, the riots in Baltimore will subside, people will begin the clean up, and attempt to rebuild their shattered lives. And the inevitable claims, counterclaims, and recriminations will begin. We’ll hear yet again about the “root causes”: poverty, bad housing, lousy schools, no jobs….. We’ll be told that the answer is MORE!!! MORE of everything. MORE money, MORE programs, and | Read More »
The Flags that Fly Here
Timonium is a suburb outside of Baltimore, sitting north of the intersection of Baltimore’s Interstate 695 Beltway and Interstate 83. That latter road is the fastest route to downtown; Interstate-83 runs from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor all the way to the Pennsylvania line. The road shares many flaws common to East Coast thoroughfares – traffic is heavy, maintenance is poor, and the speed limit is usually 10 lower | Read More »
Harry’s Knickers In a Twist
Last Thursday, the Senate confirmed Eric Holder…er, I mean Loretta Lynch to be the 54th Attorney General of the United States. That morning, Senate Minority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 0% took to the floor to take exception to a Wall Street Journal editorial titled “The GOP Uses Its Advice and Consent to Beat Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 0%.” Looking | Read More »
Where Does Identity Preference End and Mental Illness Begin?
This is not an easy article to write without inevitably hurting the feelings of some people. It is not my intention to do so. My objective is to instead have an honest conversation about where we are headed as a society. I do not pretend to understand the great struggle that those who deal with gender identity conflicts deal with, nor do I in any | Read More »
Marita Noon: It is a bad time to be in the renewable energy industry
About a decade ago, when more than half of the states enacted strict Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS), Oklahoma, and a few other states, agreed to voluntary targets. Now, nearly one-third of those states are reconsidering the legislation that sounded so good in a different energy era. Back then, it was widely believed that there was an energy shortage and “dealing with global warming” was a higher public priority.

So who will start a GoFundMe for Christians?
Recently, a GoFundMe account was shut down by “Social Justice Warriors” that was taking donations for a Christian bakery, Sweet Cakes. They have been hit with a perposterous $135,000 fine for not making a wedding cake for a homsexual couple’s “wedding”! Last I checked, before the account was closed by GoFundMe, they had about $110,000 that would have gone towards the fine. I have come to believe | Read More »
God Would Have Spared Sodom for Less Than the Gaystapo Would Destroy a Baker
CNN published an inane hit-piece by Tim Holbrook yesterday, in which he argues that there is indeed bullying and denigration of gays and lesbians today, and therefore all the extreme measures to protect these wilting flowers is justified. The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community has long had various epithets hurled against its members. There are the well-known “f” and “d” words thrown at those | Read More »
Boom: Gays Admit “Not Born That Way!”
UNDERCOVER FOOTAGE OF GAYS ADMITTING THEY WERE NOT “BORN THAT WAY” Please Donate Now: http://www.gofundme.com/rightontheedge FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: OnTheEdgeReporting@gmail.com I recently went undercover in Palm Springs, California posing as a same-sex marriage activist. I asked the following question: “Do you believe being gay is strictly genetic?”Here is the link to the video.

The Priority of Fetal Personhood
From the diaries… From the bowels of the absurd beast that is Slate came more complaining this past week about the “hardships” facing women in this great land. Of course, this was from the mouth of Amanda Marcotte, the one who barely takes a breath between her sputtering accusations of oppression. The piece entitled “Which State Was the Worst for Women this Week?” didn’t give | Read More »

Economy could sink sitting governors in 2016 race
By Matt A. Mayer (@ohiomatt), President of Opportunity Ohio. If a month is a long time in politics, then eight months is an eternity. Of the various candidates who have officially jumped in or set-up a pseudo-campaign apparatus, the ones with the most to lose between now and December are the ones currently sitting in governor’s offices. That list includes Louisiana’s Bobby Jindal, New Jersey’s | Read More »
(At Least) Three Reasons Why Government Being in the Broadband Business is a Terrible Idea
Likely the least regulated private economic sector going into the Age of the Barack Obama Administration – at least at the federal level – was the Internet. Which is largely why the Web has become an ever-evolving, free speech-free market Xanadu. This Administration views this is a tremendous failing – that they are rushing to rectify. Just after this last election, the President’s Federal Communications | Read More »
The Gaystapo and the difference between Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler…
During an undergraduate Political Science class a few decades ago one of my professors discussed the difference between Stalin and Hitler. While both were indeed power hungry and responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of people, they were distinctly different in motivation. Stalin, he suggested, was completely focused on power. He didn’t care how he got it or who he had to work | Read More »
Has Toni Morrison Solved the Racial Problem?
I’m no fan of Toni Morrison, but every so often she demonstrates that she knows the turn of a good phrase. In a recent interview she spoke of “lived wisdom.” She says we can rely on the wisdom of the elderly, because, “It’s not the book learning, it’s the lived wisdom.” As a person being dragged forward into a place where someone might consider me | Read More »
The Supreme Court Term to Date
Thus far, the Supreme Court has heard oral argument in 61 of 68 cases this term. They have reached decisions and issued opinions in 26 of those cases heard thus far. The vast majority of these cases have been 9-0 unanimous decisions with four other 8-1 near unanimous decisions. In fact, at this point in the term 50% of their decisions have been at least | Read More »
Bullies be Gone! OPT-OUT of Standardized Testing!
“BULLIES, be GONE!” OPT-OUT Liberty is the Freedom to exercise our Constitutional Rights and not be “bullied.” State assessments are voluntary. In California, the right to opt-out of standardized testing is a parental right guaranteed by CA Ed. Code 60615 which says, “Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a parent’s or guardian’s written request to school officials to excuse his or her child from any | Read More »
LGBT Moral Equivalence: Making a Pizza = Beheading
LGBT activists view Saudi Arabia’s beheadings as equal to the smallest microaggression by American Christians, while ruining someone’s life for their political views or their blog posts is perfectly acceptable (as long as it’s done to those who disagree). They see moral equivalence for the smallest slight or limitation of their lifestyle versus instigating your complete financial and personal ruin. Don’t believe it? Here’s objective | Read More »
Judging by the body language and facial expressions of George Stephanopoulous and Lanny Davis, Hillary is in deep doo-doo.
Peter Schweizer, the author of “Clinton Cash,” did two live interviews today on the Sunday shows. He was interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on ABC and Chris Wallace on FOX. Stephanopoulos’ ties to the Clinton’s are well known. Indeed he spend more time trying to discredit Schweizer than he did examining the facts and allegations raised in the book. Wallace’s interview of Schweizer was followed by | Read More »
Remember the “reset button” – Russian hackers sure do, they’re using it
So it’s worse than previously believed and relayed to the American public. Ha! Believed by whom. Today’s New York Times, amid other media, published a story that Russian hackers read White House unclassified emails, and that the Administration’s senior officials were so flummoxed, that for several weeks, they met on a daily basis rather than use any electronic media. The hackers gained entrance to the | Read More »
The Trans-Pacific Partnership and Politics
There is a very strange dynamic building in Congress regarding the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) which is creating an alignment between liberal Democrats and some of the more conservative members of the GOP. One can safely say that when a former Congresswoman like Michelle Bachmann joins a socialist Democrat like Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) 6%, there is something interesting going on here. Like | Read More »
Doctors will be made to care
You may have heard of the recent changes to the medical school admissions test, the MCAT, if you read it in this WSJ article.

The Culture War Isn’t About You
A gay activist challenged me if I would have dinner with Hitler, to justify their excoriating gay businessmen Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass for simply hosting a party for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%. They are asking the wrong question. But to answer, yes. Yes, I would have dinner with Hitler, if it gave me an opportunity to share the Truth with him–not | Read More »
Gaystapo Takes No Prisoners: GoFundMe Torpedoes Sweet Cakes
The LGBT-Gestapo adapts rather quickly. After Memories Pizza raised $842,432 in just a few days, and Arlene’s Flowers raised over $173 thousand on GoFundMe, the Gaystapo couldn’t let Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of the now-shuttered Sweet Cakes by Melissa, use that fundraising platform. A GoFundMe account was established for the Kleins, and raised over $6,000, until the website took it down. The website GoFundMe | Read More »
March for Marriage 2015 is Today!
In light of everything that has been going on lately with the SSM Social Justice Warrior activism, the March for Marriage going on today is a refreshing opportunity to stand in support for protecting and preserving traditional marriage in American society. With the upcoming SCOTUS case pertaining to SSM, this is a wonderful chance for those who support traditional values to make their voices heard! | Read More »
If It Isn’t America First What Is It?
The very words “America First” have gained a social stigma accorded few things in American History; things such as “McCarthyism,” or “America for Americans,” or “Reverse Discrimination.” These words that have been made politically incorrect by the media wing of the Progressive Republocrat Party. The original America First Committee was painted with the broad brush of anti-Americanism for opposing America’s entrance into WW II. The | Read More »
Our first rodeo?
The one thing we Republicans have in common with Canadians is that we are great at complaining but not so great at doing anything about our plight. The latest complaint is over Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 60% and a gaggle of other Senators voting for Loretta Lynch. Look, my fellow conservatives, we voted these charlatans back into office. Did we not know | Read More »
A Change of Face in Georgia
Full disclosure: I’ve not been fond of Nathan Deal for a few years now. My chagrin began when he started the cluster-[CENSORED] that is the Georgia University system consolidation. It took a bunch of colleges and merged them, which has improved nothing and has led to more than a few problems, but I digress. Short version: when I voted in the last election, it was | Read More »
States Tackle Lawsuit Reform as a Way Toward a Stronger Economy
At least 22 state legislatures are considering lawsuit reform this session. As states struggle to reemerge from weak economies, lawsuit reform can be the extra boost needed to lift economies out of their slug. Fortune 500 companies continue to rate lawsuit reform as a top consideration when deciding where to do business and whether to expand operations in a state. It was the reason Toyota | Read More »
The GOP Senate Caves Again and Calls It a Victory
Senate Republicans are really proud of themselves today: They got the Democrats to accept the human-trafficking bill after weeks of filibustering it, without removing the language banning abortion funding—a rule that had been around for 39 years. All the Republicans had to do was move forward on the Loretta Lynch nomination, which McConnell had blocked until the Dems ended their filibuster. They confirmed her | Read More »
Gay Marriage: The Left’s Pink Herring
Let’s review: Domestically the federal government has accelerated its death march towards insolvency through profligate spending, uncontrolled borrowing and monetary digitization. Nobody … nobody can persuasively explain how the existing entitlement programs will be sustained two or three decades out. One such program, Obamacare, is only now emerging from its protective cocoon of delay and obfuscation to reveal itself more disastrous, by orders of magnitude, than even its worst | Read More »
Harry Reid in a Skirt
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 60% and his leadership team put a big, fat knife in the back of gun owners in connection with the confirmation of anti-gun loon Loretta Lynch to be Attorney General. As you may know, over 40 senators had announced their intention to vote against Lynch’s nomination. As you may also know, pro-gun senators were filibustering Lynch. And conservatives | Read More »
Hillary Blaming It All On Bill?
Jonathan Chait has joined the liberal choir experiencing buyers remorse for Hillary Rodham Clinton. Maureen Dowd of the New York Times previously fired two bullets (here and here) at Hillary, first comparing her to Nixon (leading to the affectionate nickname “Grandma Nixon”), then encouraging her to run like a Tumblr Chick (I doubt Hillary has ever visited the site), or as Tina Fey’s “Bitch is | Read More »
Frat boys spit on, throw beer bottles at wounded warriors
Once again, a fraternity group appears to have embarrassed itself with lewd and hateful behavior. This time, members of a fraternity were observed spitting on and throwing beer bottles at wounded warriors on a retreat in Florida. Fox News reports: Investigations have been launched at two universities over accusations that fraternity members taunted wounded war heroes, urinated on an American flag, and spit on a | Read More »
Corporate Personhood: Standing Between Capitalism and Socialism
If you really want to get a liberal to react like a dysfunctional fembot in the Austen Powers movies , just mention Citizens United. If you want their heads to explode, tell them that corporations are persons. This is one thing that really upsets them and recently the $2.5 billion presidential wannabe, Hillary Clinton, mentioned it as one of the four things why she is running | Read More »
Paging Mr. Deace; Mr. Steve Deace
Well, Steve Deace has done it again. Clearly the guy has no equal when it comes to his transparency of bias against the potential candidacy of one Ben Carson. When it comes to writing of Carson, apparently Deace cannot see ‘the forest of common sense through the trees’. Let’s just take the following words from Deace’s current hit piece against the doctor to make my | Read More »
What do we need them for?
To be honest I dislike Rinos even more than I dislike liberals. At least liberals are honest about who they are. Rinos lie to us and then attack us when we call them on their B. S. Today Loretta Lynch was confirmed. It was the usual suspects in our “party” who jumped ship. The MO is always the same. First the tough talk Kabuki theater. | Read More »
The Coronation Will Be Ruined, Again
In early 2008 Hillary Clinton was the shoe-in to be the Democrat Party Presidential nominee and was destined to go on to become President of the United States. It was to be a coronation. That was ruined by one Barack Obama. Now we are in the early stages of the 2016 presidential cycle, and things are repeating themselves for the Clinton’s. Hillary is supposed to | Read More »
Ready for Carly
In the 2016 presidential election the Democrats are betting everything on one candidate whose only real selling point is that she is a woman. The crowded Republican field which will dominate national politics for the next 19 months solved its ideological, ethnic, generational, and geographic diversity problems, but the gender problem remained. Enter the antidote – Carly Fiorina. The advantages: – Fiorina is not the Party’s spokesman, and in all likelihood will not be. She can | Read More »
Stop Me Before I Vote Again
Hillary Clinton has been calling for sweeping changes in the way that private citizens choose to get involved in the political process. Yes, I know, the term is “campaign finance reform.” She went so far as to say that she’d be willing to support a Constitutional amendment to “reform” the way voters spend their money in political campaigns. She’s not the only Democrat who feels | Read More »
The Armenian Genocide In Photos
Via The Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute: “What is the Armenian Genocide? The extermination of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire and the surrounding regions during 1915-1923 is called the Armenian Genocide. Those massacres were masterminded and perpetrated by the government of Young Turks and were later finalized by the Kemalist government. The First World War gave the Young Turks the opportunity to settle accounts with Armenians living | Read More »
What Good Are Principles If You Won’t Stick To Them?
Last November, the people of Georgia State House district 102 reelected me to a third term. A few weeks ago my 5th Legislative session ended.

I still believe people run for office out of a genuine desire | Read More »
Follow the Money: Earth Day 2015
Forty-five years ago, 22 million Americans celebrated clean air, clean water and a clean environment on the very first Earth Day. The day itself was created by Republican (gasp) President Richard Nixon. He signed the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requiring all federal agencies to prepare environmental impact statements and commemorated the very first Earth Day on April 22, 1970. The history books gloss over | Read More »
MSNBC: “Taxes for Thee, Not for Me”
“Taxes for thee, but not for me” is the liberal mantra. The celebrity-worshipping elite Left exalts the “middle-class” while not deigning to join it, and certainly doesn’t lower itself to such plebeian pursuits as paying taxes. While Melissa Harris-Perry laments the plight of inner-city black women (and beclowns herself by asking Eric Holder to “quack for us”), she also accumulates quite a lot of loot | Read More »
Shakedown 101: The Campus Speaking Tour of a Convicted Fraudster
For most institutions, you would think that inviting a speaker who was found guilty of “egregious fraud” probably isn’t a good idea. Yet it seems that never occurred to anyone at Harvard Law’s Institute for Global Law and Policy, nor at Georgetown’s Center for Latin American Studies. The speaker in question is Steven Donziger, the controversial lawyer at the center of a $9.5 billion case | Read More »
Presidential Candidates not addressing the rise of the machines
Economists point out that we are in the midst of the third industrial revolution thanks to rapid advances in digital technology that will transform the world economy and create a new class of workers. Yet despite the potentially devastating economic consequences to follow for workers left out of this revolution, no presidential candidate is talking about this. The revolution has already happened to an extent. | Read More »
