She Did Not Go Wobbly
It is sad news to learn as the sun rises today that Margaret Thatcher has passed away. She was the first politician I ever met. As a kid, I had the opportunity to, in passing, meet her. She was charming. History brought us Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and John Paul II at the same time to battle communism. She was the last of the three | Read More »
Filibuster Reid Gun Control Bill Now
When you are in the minority in the Senate, there is one thing you can do to stop unconstitutional legislation from getting started. You filibuster the motion to proceed with debate. We are all painfully aware that once the amendment process gets rolling, too many GOP senators are enticed into cutting a deal. Momentum builds for passage of the underlying bill, and Republicans feel the | Read More »
Union Bosses Should Imagine A World Without Obama’s NLRB

Learning To Cheat
Guess who America’s new role model is? Her name is Beverly Hall. She is Atlanta’s former Superintendent of Schools. She is dynamic – a mover, a shaker, an achiever and a total and utter fraud. On April 2, 2013, her deception came to a final end. She and 34 other co-conspirators have been indicted for rigging the standardized test scores dating all the way back to 2001.
Not only has she destroyed the trust and honor in the Atlanta School System, she has obviously spawned copy-cats. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia’s municipal schools are also rife with cheating conspiracies. Here is the latest in brotherly love and deceit.

Rick Perry’s Freedom Agenda
This morning’s post on Texas generated a lot of commentary. I’ve talked to people close to Governor Perry and want to give some information from their perspective. Yesterday, the Texas House voted to begin the expansion of medicaid under Obamacare. Later in the evening, they rescinded the effort. Several reporters and others I talked with explained that while Governor Perry is “rock solid” on the | Read More »
Elective Despotism and the Second Amendment
Yesterday, the Maryland state legislature voted to infringe upon my Second Amendment rights. In a state already riddled with violent crime despite (or rather because of) some of the strictest gun laws, law-abiding citizens have no recourse. Under the new law, hundreds of guns would be banned, high capacity magazines would be prohibited, all gun owners would have to submit to finger printing, and state | Read More »
Rick Perry’s Failure to Lead Leads Texas Closer to Obamacare
Late Thursday afternoon, the Republican-controlled Texas House of Representatives took the first step toward capitulation on the Obamacare Medicaid expansion. A few hours later, the amendment directing the Texas state healthcare bureaucracy to start preparing for the expansion was reconsidered and rescinded after a handful of conservatives scrambled to rescue the situation — but the fact that it passed at all is a wake-up call.Here’s | Read More »
Why Not Incest?
Jeremy Irons is making headlines for his hesitancy on gay marriage and whether it might lead to incestuous marital relationships if only to avoid estate taxes. Irons says, Could a father not marry his son? … It’s not incest between men. Incest is there to protect us from inbreeding, but men don’t breed… If that were so, then if I wanted to pass on my | Read More »
Did Law Enforcement Miss Warnings About Holmes?
While Colorado lawmakers focus on guns, an area university psychiatrist claims police ignored warnings that James Holmes was a threat to the public, my emphasis: A University of Colorado psychiatrist told campus police a month before the Aurora movie theater attack that James Holmes had homicidal thoughts and was a public danger, according to records unsealed Thursday. Lynne Fenton, a psychiatrist at the Denver campus, told | Read More »
Exposed: President Morsi’s ‘Brotherhoodization’ Plan for Egypt
The Muslim Brotherhood’s former General Guide, Mahdi Akef, the organization’s supreme leader from 2004-2010, declared during an interview published yesterday by Kuwait’s well-known newspaper, Al Jarida, that the “Brotherhoodization” of Egypt’s state organs—which would see the transformation of Egypt into the image of the Muslim Brotherhood—is President Muhammad Morsi’s grand plan for the nation. Akef was referring to Morsi’s electoral program, also known as his | Read More »
Are Teachers Bullying Conservative Students?
A Wisconsin school district has launched an investigation into accusations that teachers have bullied and harassed a politically active conservative student. Benji Backer, a 15-year-old student at Appleton North High School in Appleton, tells me that he’s been subjected to name-calling, foul-language and classroom lectures that bashed Gov. Scott Walker and labeled Republicans as racist “They are harassing and bullying me as well as indoctrinating | Read More »

Wisconsin Among Worst for Business Taxes, State Contemplates Circus Bailout
Wisconsin led the nation in collective bargaining reform for public employees in 2011, but the state’s current tax and regulatory climate led the Tax Foundation to recently declare Wisconsin among the worst in the country for business taxes. But while lawmakers mull over how best to reduce taxes and streamline regulations, they are being asked by one state agency to spend $3.7 million on a | Read More »
Progressives: “How Do We Guns?”
The most disturbing trend in the gun-control conversation is that the most uneducated people on the topic are the ones in charge of policy. Take for instance Congresswoman Diana DeGette and her demonstration before the Denver Post editorial board: I’m the Prime House Co-Sponsor on the ban on the high capacity magazines and I believe that as this bill works through it has an excellent chance of passing. | Read More »
Media Covers up Democrat-Backed Planned Parenthood’s Support for Infanticide
For almost as long as there have been two parties, there have been accusations of mainstream media bias. Conservatives know it’s real. Liberals insist it’s imagined. Bias is evident not only in how events are covered but also in what is covered—and more importantly what is not covered. Consider two events from last week. First, in North Dakota the governor signed into law bills that | Read More »
