Thank You, Senator Paul
I hope the other Republicans candidates say what Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 84% said today. In Kentucky, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 84% pointed out both Republicans and Democrats have been driving up spending. He said Republicans cannot win by being Democrat-lite, but they too have contributed to the national debt. It is true. And it is something the GOP | Read More »
Obamacare’s rather foolish birth control mandate gets another day in court.
The Democrats would have been better suited to never have a birth control mandate in the first place.

April 7, 1865. Prelude to Appomattox
On April 6, 1865, the Army of Northern Virginia lost 8,700 men, about one-fifth of its strength, at the Battle of Sayler’s Creek. As a result, Lee lost his rearguard and any hope he had of eluding Grant and linking up with Joe Johnston in North Carolina vanished. Lee, observing the action, was heard to say “My God! Has the army been dissolved?” Moreover, the | Read More »
Sabrina Rubin Erdely’s OTHER Possibly Fake Rape Story
Everyone I spoke to in connection with this investigation was crystal clear that at no point did Sabrina Erdely or Rolling Stone ever contact them whatsoever, even to ask for background information. This is exactly the same lapse in journalistic standards that doomed the UVA story and ultimately led to its retraction. The fact that it occurred in this story is indication of a systemic problem with Rolling Stone and Sabrina Erdely’s reporting, not of a single lapse in judgment.

Mike Pence and Asa Hutchinson are out of step with America.
As Indiana Governor Mike Pence and Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson flail about trying to accommodate the insatiable demands of the homosexual left, Dave Weigel, reporting at Bloomberg Politics, has some bad new for them. They are out of step with most of America. In doing so, all of the critics are on the wrong side of public polling. According to a March edition of the | Read More »
Surprise! The Rand Paul Store Blatantly Caters to the Paranoid
Well, surprise surprise, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 84% is officially running for President. However, in the category of actually surprising news, Paul’s basic argument for his primary candidacy is… that he’s the most electable candidate in the field. Seriously. Paul gave a sneak peak into what his message will be in a pre-announcement video that has been prominently featured on the influential conservative | Read More »
.@SallyKohn is a dishonest lackwit
The key issue over the Indiana RFRA and the similar bill in Arkansas (as well as the bills currently in effect in about 30 other states) is pretty simple. Can someone use the force of law to compel you to either violate your religious beliefs or be punished. For all observant Christians, homosexual acts — not the sexual attraction per se — are sinful. Homosexuality | Read More »
Obama convinces scientists to support Iran nuclear surrender
As part of its breathless cheerleading for the Iran nuclear deal, POLITICO ran a story titled White House looks to scientists to sell Iran deal. The White House is calling in the geek squad to sell its Iran deal. The president’s top nerd, MIT-nuclear-physicist-turned-Energy-Secretary Ernest Moniz, who has been chosen to lead the effort brought his expertise to the White House briefing room Monday, explaining | Read More »
Welcome to the Arena, Senator Paul
Today, in Kentucky, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 84% is going to announce his campaign for President of the United States. In 2010, when I backed Senator Paul in the primary, I got an enormous amount of grief from many conservatives and Republicans who did not like Senator Paul’s father and assumed that Senator Paul would be a clone of his father. I | Read More »
Big Business Targets Conservatives
While we’ve been distracted by pizza restaurants in Indiana, you need to pay attention to what big business is doing. With the blessing of Republican leaders, they have begun systematically targeting conservative members of Congress. Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) 95%, Barry Loudermilk, Jody Hice, Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) 91%, Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) 89%, and others | Read More »
The unbridled hysteria over Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was also directed toward places like the falsely reported “anti-gay” pizzeria, would not, I believe, have occurred ten years ago. Nonsense has always existed, but outrageous cries of discrimination have become mass-produced, are set off at the slightest inconvenience, and are fueled by omnipresent social media. Even though this is true: “…the words ‘gay,’ ‘lesbian,’ | Read More »
It’s time for #WMATA reform.
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, or WMATA, is an organization created by interstate compact. It runs the DC Metrorail system (America’s second-largest subway) in the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland, and is governed by the compact between those jurisdictions and the US Government. It’s broken, and it’s constantly being found to be broken in new and disappointing ways. It’s time for meaningful fixes | Read More »
And on this Day, America Returned
It has been a long, cold winter. Over the last five months, we have braved unusually bitter temperatures, unusually bitter disappointments with our government, discord in the world at large, and the emergence of Meghan Trainor as a thing. But today, as we emerge from yet another unusually late brutal national cold snap, people all across America will begin a ritual. They will wake | Read More »
