Huffington Post: Too many Catholics on the Supreme Court
You scratch a progressive and you find an fascist. That has been the lesson learned from the Hobby Lobby decision. One of the most notable bits of fascist commentary appeared in the Huffington Post by an anti-religious bigot named Ronald A. Lindsay, The Uncomfortable Question: Should We Have Six Catholic Justices on the Supreme Court? Unfortunately, a majority of the Supreme Court may now be resurrecting | Read More »
Obama is the worst President since World War II
That legacy thing isn’t working out so good for President Obama. A new Quinnipiac poll finds that voters now say Obama is the worst president since World War II. Obama is less popular than President George W. Bush. Voters, by a 45 to 38 percent margin, say the country would be better off if Mitt Romney had won the 2012 presidential election. Ronald Reagan is considered the | Read More »
I guess the Left is comfortable with our quiet troop buildup in Iraq.
Guess even the most hardcore Lefty can detect a brick wall after he’s run into it six or seven times.

Uniguest Needs a Better Explanation for Why Conservative Sites Are Being Blocked
James Varney of the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, stayed at the Hyatt Place hotel in Riverhead, NY. He tried to look at the Drudge Report, but was blocked from doing so by his hotel’s internet connection. In fact, he tried looking at a number of conservative websites, including Powerline and Instapundit. They too were blocked. He then tried a number of liberal websites from Talking | Read More »
The GOP plays heads-I-win-tails-you-lose with conservatives
The American, the magazine of the American Enterprise Institute, has an article this month that I classify as a must-read for conservatives searching for a way ahead. The article is titled Why the voters got rid of Cantor. Most people do not decide which candidate to vote for based on who shares their opinion on the specific issues. They know that issues are complicated, and | Read More »
Jim DeMint Will Be At The RedState Gathering
We would not be doing a lot of what we are doing had Jim DeMint of South Carolina not stood up and led the grassroots in its fight for smaller government. Senator DeMint was willing to tell his own party no long before many in Washington were. Not only was he willing to tell his party no, he was willing to fight to get like | Read More »
#MSSen FEC Now Looking Into Pro Cochran SuperPAC
From Roll Call, the defecation has begun to hit the rotary wind device: The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has sent a Request For Additional Information (RFAI) to Mississippi Conservatives, a Super PAC supporting the re-election of Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss. The committee has until August 1st to respond, or the failure to do so “could result in an audit or enforcement action.” Not only do we have allegations of vote buying | Read More »

Obama assails GOP on immigration and says he’ll go it alone
John Boehner seems to have abandoned the plan that we heard so much about earlier in the year, i.e. waiting until after the primary season to push the noxious Senate comprehensive immigration reform law, and decided that the GOP base is simply not in the mood to move such a monumental bill under a president who is so disdainful of the law of the land. | Read More »
Hysteria, Thy name is Woman
“For at least two thousand years of European history until the late nineteenth century hysteria referred to a medical condition thought to be particular to women and caused by disturbances of the uterus” – wiki As the screeching over the SCOTUS ruling on the Hobby Lobby case reached a fever pitch, I thought to myself how women on the left were going into hysterics even though nothing | Read More »
Why Barack Obama won’t just unilaterally fund access to abortifacients.
If the administration decided to fund procedures that an extremely large swath of the population considers to be abortifacients then they’d be in for several more exquisitely painful months in the public disapproval barrel.

Tech at Night: I agree with Alito, not Roberts, in the phone search case, Riley v. California
I admit, when I see too much libertarian cheering about something, I look for the catch. So I had to take a closer look when I saw people disagree with aligned with people I sometimes agree with and sometimes disagree with, all cheering the Supreme Court’s decision in Riley v. California, which asserted that in a police stop, a warrant is required by police to search the data on the phone.
I have to say I agree with Justice Alito’s concurrence, more than I do with the opinion of the court by the Chief Justice. He points out that searching arrested persons predates the fourth amendment, was not altered by the fourth amendment, and is all about gathering evidence, not securing cops. So the court was right, but for the wrong reason.

The White House Does Not Understand What Happened in the Hobby Lobby Case
It is not surprising that most leftist commentators are completely missing the boat on the Hobby Lobby decision. After all, one does not become a writer for The Nation or Mother Jones or DailyKos by being smart or knowledgeable. What’s troubling is that the White House seems equally clueless as to what actually happened today – although it’s still up in the air whether this | Read More »
