Zuckerberg, Christie and Booker Couldn’t Save Newark’s Schools Because It Wasn’t Their Primary Goal.
If you are going to save a terrible, dysfunctional school system, then you are not going to do it from the couch of Oprah Winfrey. You are not going to be liked. You are going to be hated.

Nationalism Is Hard, But Worth It If You Love America
One thing frustrates me about people who purport to be my allies on wanting to enforce America’s immigration laws anew and restore the value of our citizenship. They won’t willingly pay any price for it. It’s always someone else’s fault. Sadly, fixing and repairing things costs money and hardship. The rain will fall on both the wicked and the just. It will cost us an | Read More »
For Wendy Davis And Other Leftists Losing Is Never Saying Good-Bye
Perhaps if Barack Obama’s latest Hail Mary Pass on Climate Change falls incomplete, there’s yet another leaf in the old Jackass Party Playbook – The Hail Satan. They won’t call it that, any more than they’d call their playmaker, Wendy Davis, by her popular nickname outside the fever swamps, Abortion Barbie. The vehicle by which she’ll dupe the rubes and plot her grab for more | Read More »
Only The Most Sick and Depraved Would Join #ShoutYourAbortion
The advocates of the more widespread and aggressive aborting of pregnancies have attempted to change the moral terrain upon which they fight their battles.

Finally. A claim so stupid that even @Voxdotcom won’t buy it
We’ve seen it all at Vox.com. The bridge from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank. The missing everglades. The American Revolution as a really bad idea. The Hong Kong democracy protesters using “hands up, don’t shoot.” The routine and virulent anti-Semitism. But yesterday, for a few blessed hours, Vox.com redeemed itself. It all started with an attempt by TalkingPointsMemo to start a leftist gang-bang | Read More »
Muslim and homosexual bakers decline to make cakes. No one cares.
One of the things that Muslim and homosexual rights activists have in common is that while they use the cry of “equal rights” what they are really campaigning for is a position of privilege where they have rights that are available to no one else. In the aftermath of Ben Carson’s comments on his view (and mine) that Islam is incompatible with the presidency, Jonathan | Read More »

I had discussion with a friend of mine over the weekend. We go back a long ways, having served together a company commanders in the same battalion.

If The Catholic Church chooses to reduce itself to being just another boring Left-wing interest group that shills for the collective immiseration of mind, body and spirit that Marxism typically entails, then it needs and deserves condign replacement as a legitimate moral authority. This is quite the radical proclamation, but only when viewed through the lens of credulous, rather than skeptical faith. This week President | Read More »
Washington Post’s dishonest hackery in support of late term abortion
Hard cases make bad laws. This is an axiom that probably goes, in one form or another, back to Hammurabi’s Code. It is true. When you come up with a particularly horrible case that you attempt to accommodate you end up creating very bad law. That is what the pro-aborts are up to today. They are reeling under the impact of the the CMP videos | Read More »
