How Rep. Peter King Is Working With Harry Reid To Limit Gun Ownership
Yesterday, we posted on the dangerous push is making to close the “terrorist loophole” in our gun laws. It sounds terrible, right, that suspected terrorists would be allowed to by firearms. That is, until you think about it. The terrorist watch list that the Democrats are so anxious to use comprises well over a million names. In 2013, the Nation Terrorism Center celebrated the inclusion | Read More »

Book Review: Hubris by Alistair Horne
I was privileged a couple weeks ago to receive a review copy of Alistair Horne’s newest book Hubris, which hit shelves this week. Horne is of course one of the most accomplished military historians of all time, having written the definitive history of one of the most infamous battles in human history, the brutal battle of Verdun in 1916, along with numerous other works. Horne’s typical milieu | Read More »
Why In the Name Of Heaven Is the DNC Praising George Bush?
Yesterday was one of those days that had a lot of bizarre threads running through it. Donald Trump enlisted the aid of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity to claim he never said what he obviously did at least twice during the week. Doddering, permanently concussed Senate Minority Leader claimed you could buy explosives and fully automatic weapons in unlimited quantities. And the DNC released what | Read More »

Old and busted: tweets that make sense. New hotness: class warfare. No one working full-time in America should have to raise their kids in poverty. — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 20, 2015 Don’t get me wrong, it sounds great.

Harry Reid Supports Allowing Terrorists Into America But Wants To Stop Gun Sales
Ever since Harry Reid was punched in the face by a gay hooker had an “exercise band” “break” while attached to his “shower door” last year, he has become more and more emotionally unstable. Even before his unfortunate “accident” he used the floor of the Senate to tell lies about the Koch brothers. This was an act completely unprecedented in the history of the republic. | Read More »
What Did Donald Trump Say About Registering Muslims?
Sometimes Donald Trump would be better served by being quiet. Because his inability to self-edit his stream of consciousness leads to those cringe-worthy moments when he says things that are scary if he believes them and equally scary if he doesn’t believe them. On Tuesday, Trump was on Sean Hannity’s show and he had this to offer about Islamic terrorism: GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump | Read More »
Planned Parenthood Launches $20 Million Fight Against GOP
Cecile Richards, Head of Planned Parenthood, has announced a counter-attack against her pro-life opponents. The impact that the videos from The Center for Medical Progress have had upon her bloodthirsty organization originally appeared to be minimal. Not because the videos didn’t contain gruesome footage which deeply affected most of us, but because our reaction seemed to have barely registered with Cecile, her colleagues, and their allies. This | Read More »
The One Big Secret That Will Make Hillary’s Foreign Policy A Success
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton gave a speech on her strategy for countering ISIS yesterday at the Council on Foreign Relations. If anything it exhibited anything at all it was that she was completely bereft of insight, introspection, and ideas. Broken down, here are her main themes.

Is the United States an Empire in Decline?
There’s long been a growing sense in America that things have not been going right, and that all is not well in the halls of our sacred institutions. But while questions about our economy and culture have grown, we have still felt more or less reassured that at least our military stands unparalleled in the world. That is still true but there are increasingly | Read More »
You Won’t Believe What John Kasich is Saying on the Stump Now
Maybe John Weaver is a political genius and we just can’t see it. Maybe his plan – which always consists of running against conservatives – will one day earn someone the Republican nomination for President. Thus far, though, the results have been pretty abysmal. In 2012, Weaver worked for a guy (Jon Huntsman) who was by all accounts more conservative than Mitt Romney, but their | Read More »
