The Commodification of Men
Last week, author Susan Patton was on Fox and Friends with Steve Doocy and the resulting segment has become a source of some controversy not just among the usual feminist crowd but also among even some conservative professional women. ThinkProgress summed up the exchange thusly: The controversial author criticized today’s women for “acting like such an entitled princess” and prioritizing careers ahead of their families. Men, Patton | Read More »
Why Natalie Tennant Can’t Win
For the better half of a year, the West Virginia Democratic Party could not seem to find anyone to run against Shelley Moore Capito for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jay Rockefeller. Many political observers said that Capito was “unbeatable” and that any Democrat would have a hard time launching a credible campaign, or even beating her. After months of recruiting, including | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ Irreconcilable Differences: Grounds for Divorce from Establishment Repubs
I’m a total team player. Loyal to a fault some would say. I have dutifully followed Erick and RedState’s counsel to vote conservative in the primary and Republican in the general. In reality, what other choices do we have? We know that trying to form a third party is doomed from the outset. So, where do we go from here now that the evidence is | Read More »

Democrats love them some crony capitalism
There is great story about the British cavalry officer who was so dumb that even the horses started to notice. The same effect is happening in the Democrat party. Democrat politicians are so deeply involved in corporate welfare and crony capitalism that even the Democrat pundits are beginning to notice. Right now the US Export-Import Bank is teetering on the razor’s edge of extinction. The | Read More »

Iron Dome, Missile Defense, and scientific ideologues
One of the reasons the current Hamas offensive has been such a colossal failure is because of the Israeli anti-missile system called Iron Dome. From the Washington Post, Iron Dome, Israel’s antimissile system, changes calculus of fight with Hamas: ASHKELON, Israel — The roar of sirens echoed across this sun-kissed city Monday afternoon, and in a heartbeat the woman in the pink bikini was out | Read More »
Senator Cornyn Needs to K.I.S.S. This Idea Goodbye
I appreciate Senator John Cornyn working on a bipartisan solution to stem the border crisis, but I do not understand why people in Washington can’t remember to K.I.S.S. their policy proposals — Keep It Simple Stupid. We cannot just secure our border, we must have a comprehensive plan. We cannot work on our healthcare, we must have comprehensive socialism. Washington, not “we” to be fair, | Read More »
CONFIRMED: Senate Republican Leaders Paid for Attacks Against Conservatives
I can confirm that the attack ads in Mississippi run by “All Citizens for Mississippi” were funded by Senate Republicans, including Senators Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker, and Roy Blunt. It appears our Senate Republican leaders are willing to risk losing a Senate majority so long as they can get their own re-elected. Yes folks, it is true. I can confirm what | Read More »
Rep Sean Maloney (D, New York-18) decided that FAA regulations don’t apply to Rep. Sean Maloney.
It’s not that Rep. Maloney decided that the law, indeed, is stupid… New York Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney’s wedding last month had it all — celebrities, fireworks and even a small drone used to shoot a spectacular wedding video. But the Federal Aviation Administration prohibits the commercial use of drones like the miniature helicopter that gathered the breathtaking aerial footage of Maloney’s June 21 wedding | Read More »
Senate Democrats Want to Give Priority to Their “Religion”
Two weeks ago, in a narrow ruling that won’t affect the vast majority of Americans, the U.S. Supreme Court simply applied the provisions of the bipartisan Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which protects Americans from being forced by government to violate central tenets of their faith. This Hobby Lobby ruling was little more than a straightforward application of a law reflecting the common sense of a | Read More »
Extreme Pro-Abortion Senate Bill Would Eviscerate Over 200 Pro-Life Laws in America
Over the past few years, numerous states have followed the will of the people to increase protections for women and unborn children by enacting reasonable, commonsense restrictions on abortion.
Pro-abortion radicals on the other hand have been trying to challenge these laws in the courts and the court of public opinion to no avail. Now they are attempting to eviscerate these pro-life laws with one piece of federal pro-abortion legislation, S.B. 1696.

So, the Veterans Administration was off bugging people. …As in, monitoring their communications.
Remember: the Veterans Administration was held up as a shining beacon by the Left on how to do socialized medicine. Or should I say ‘Socialist?’ – Because this story is certainly, ah, evocative: As the hearing stretched into the night, [House Veterans Affairs Chairman Jeff] Miller told the committee about a visit some committee staff took to the Philadelphia Regional Office earlier this month. As | Read More »
8 Myths In The Immigration Debate
The ongoing debate over immigration, and over illegal immigration in particular, is one of the most acrimonious – usually needlessly so – in our politics. It divides both parties, though it’s no secret that the divisions within the GOP on this issue are far worse. And all sides in this debate are guilty of peddling myths and rhetoric that do more harm to the debate | Read More »
