    Common Core and Education Reform

    Part of what makes Common Core such a murky and bipartisan issue is the fact that we readily recognize something in our education system needs to change. As a resident of Louisiana, I know how bad it can get. I was born in Natchitoches (which is pronounced exactly as it looks like it should be – NACK-UH-TISH), which is in one of the lowest performing | Read More »

    Remember: #ItsTheLaw

    Remember when we were told by the Left told us the Affordable Care Act was the law? That they won and we lost? That the law was here to stay? We’ve now gone from “It’s the law” to “It’s a drafting error that shouldn’t be taken into consideration.” I’m referring to, as you’ve no doubt heard by now, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals gutting | Read More »

    Barbours unapologetic for racial tone of ads

    This piece at National Review has quite a few interesting things to note about the involvement of Haley Barbour’s political machine in Mississippi. The political-action committee that aired the ads raised eyebrows from the outset. For one thing, it had the same address, phone number, e-mail domain, and leader — the bishop Ronnie Crudup — as the Jackson-based New Horizon Church International. Crudup told Mississippi’s Clarion-Ledger earlier this month | Read More »

    The Borgia Presidency

    There was once a Cardinal of the Catholic Church named Rodrigo Borgia. His uncle was Pope Callixtus III, who bequeathed unto him the position of Cardinal. At the same time, Borgia was named Bishop of Valencia, an “inheritance” after his uncle had to vacate the position to sit in the Throne of St. Peter. Then, in 1492, he became Pope Alexander VI, defeating Giuliano della | Read More »

    The Further Weaponization of the United States Government

    Since at least before the 2012 re-election, and unbeknownst to Americans until fairly recently, the administration that currently runs the White House has been weaponizing various government agencies at a rate never before seen in U.S. history. The Internal Revenue Service was used to silence conservative groups. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office was used to force social change, despite receiving zero complaints prior. I | Read More »

    August is never good, September could be worse

    August is when things happen in politics. Typically, it’s a scandal, and it hurts sitting presidents and their parties. Right now, the crisis at the southern border looks to be the next big thing about to really bubble over (it’s bad now, but reports of terrible diseases among the camps could make this a lot worse). It’s a terrible situation because the Democrats were banking | Read More »

    Clean House at the @NRSC

    It’s high time for something to be done about the group currently in charge at the National Republican Senatorial Committee. It is a group that is ineffective at best in securing the support necessary to gain and maintain Republican support for its candidates, and you need to look no further than this primary season to see the effects of that. Leon Wolf pointed out a | Read More »

    Unpopular Opinion: Don’t support a Democrat Who Is Not Conservative over a Republican Who Is Not Conservative

    Right now, the Conservative Movement is at a Crossroads (no, not Karl Rove’s). On the one hand, we have made significant gains in races across the country. Our own Tea Party favorites, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, successfully filled the narrative void over the course of a summer and made Obamacare defunding not only a talking point, but made it more of a possibility than | Read More »

    Landrieu reimburses Republican endorsement

    This via WWL in New Orleans: Just weeks after ship builder Boyse Bollinger endorsed US Senator Mary Landrieu in a commercial, the lawmaker from Louisiana today announced she included $318 million for six Fast Response Cutters for the Coast Guard in the bill that funds the Department of Homeland Security. The vessels are built at Bollinger Shipyards in Lockport, Louisiana. “Even though I am a | Read More »
