Want to end the problem of excessive use of force by police ? Easy. Eliminate police unions.
Set against the recent growth of the Black Lives Matter and social justice movements (which pretty much denigrate all cops as inherently evil, and also seek to emasculate the police) there has arisen a spirited, (and happily civil debate) among conservatives and libertarians, at Red State and elsewhere, as to the proper role and function of police in our society, and how some fear we | Read More »
Josh Earnest just stepped in it, BIG TIME!
WH Press Secretary Josh Earnest was on “Fox & Friends” this morning, and got into a rather contentious discussion with Elizabeth Hasselbeck. It’s been all over the internet. But of course, everyone’s missing the key point to come out of Earnest’s comments. At the end, Steve Doocey asked Earnst about the growing opposition to admitting Syrian refugees to the US, as fears increase of Islamic | Read More »
Syrian refugees, illegal immigration, the Tom Bradley effect, and the 2016 election.
Somehow the question of whether or not the US should accept tens of thousands of Syrian refugees has merged with the issue of what to do about the tens of millions who are already here illegally in the US. Nearly all Democrats, and most of the MSM are pushing the view that we must be “compassionate,” stand up in unison and recite Emma Lazarus, and | Read More »
Happy 240th Birthday to my beloved Marine Corps!!
Today, November 10th, is the 240th birthday of the United States Marine Corps. First, enjoy “Madison Rising’s ” stirring birthday salute: I can’t believe that it was 51 years ago that I first entered Quantico for a summer of PLC. I knew I wanted to be a Marine officer; I wasn’t sure if I could hack it. I was about to find out. It | Read More »
If Obama moves to close Gitmo by executive order, Republicans MUST immediately impeach; or we no longer have any semblance of a constitutional republic
Rumors are beginning to emerge that Obama is planning his latest effort to subvert the Constitution by ordering Gitmo closed, and the transfer of the remaining prisoners to prisons in the US. Should he take this action, congressional Republicans will have absolutely NO option but to commence impeachment. If they fail to act, then they might at well shut Congress down; for we will no | Read More »

Understanding the REAL importance of the CNBC debate debacle: laying down markers for the 2016 general election debates. (Time to change the format?)
The CNBC debate was a disaster for the MSM. It exposed, for all to see, to a heretofore unimaginable degree, the blatant partisanship of the MSM. The candidates on stage were able to turn it to their advantage, launching memorable, and very successful attacks on the three moderators, and the format in general. As a result, we are now seeing considerable shifting in the debate | Read More »
Barack “wretched fiasco” Obama…………
It was just about a decade ago that Democrats owned up that for them, politics doesn’t stop at the water’s edge…..indeed, it runs straight across the oceans direct to Bagdad. Though having mostly supported the Iraq war, even those who were “for it before they were against it,” Democrats took every opportunity to rail against and eviscerate the war. Indeed, an individual hitherto unfamiliar with | Read More »
So, what would House Republicans do if EVERY Republican presidential candidate tonight calls on them to vote against the budget deal?
There is a GOP presidential debate tonight on CNBC. There is also a horrible budget deal just waiting for a vote in the House. The latest episode of GOP(e) Failure Theater is all set to go. What’s uncertain as I write is if the bill will be called up late tonight, after the debate, or it will get carried over until tomorrow. [mc_name name=’Rep. Paul | Read More »
