Tom Cotton: Rock Star
The National Journal carries an interview by Jeffrey Goldberg, a rather doctrinaire kind of lefty that populates the national media, and Senator Tom Cotton. It is worth your time to read it. (Trigger Warning: If the use of military force offends you or you find yourself mumbling “neo-con” at random intervals, you might not want to read this.) I went to speak to Cotton not only | Read More »
Why the Washington Post’s commenters should not be allowed to vote
Today is April 15. The day your federal income taxes are due. Every year, nearly eight out of 10 U.S. tax filers get a federal tax refund. The average amount paid over the past few years was roughly $2,800, according to the most recent IRS data. Who gets these refunds varies by income group. While 84% of those making less than $50,000 received a refund in | Read More »

Abortion, capital punishment and the left’s malleable morality
On April 29, 2014, the State of Oklahoma executed a vicious and unrepentant rapist and murderer named Clayton Lockett. The execution team missed Lockett’s vein with the IV and injected the drug into muscle tissue. It wasn’t pretty. But it worked. Lockett eventually died of a heart attack– perhaps after experiencing some of the terror that his victims experienced as they waited to die. The | Read More »
Hillary: The Last, Dying Gasp of Generation Phony
“Let Them Eat Astroturf!” Madame Hillary loudly proclaimed. Hillary Rodham Clinton has cornered the market on Digital AstroTurf. No, I haven’t fallen for another fake post at The Daily Currant. It appears Hillary Clinton really has purchased tens of thousands of Fakebook Likes from a click farm. And then there are Hillary’s Twitter followers… Although Hillary Clinton boasts a robust 3.6 million Twitter followers, not | Read More »
Cruz, Paul, Walker, Rubio, Perry, Jindal, and Bush Walk Into a Ballroom
There are going to be lots of corrals to meet the Presidential candidates. That’s the nature of it. They march in, they give speeches, and they leave. In many of these events, if you pay extra, you get closer. You may pay even more and get a photo opportunity. Good luck getting a question answered. That was one reason I wanted the RedState Gathering to | Read More »
Only 4% Got the Right Obamacare Subsidy
Tax Day is tomorrow, and if Obamacare wasn’t complicating people’s lives enough already, it’s going to make paying taxes even more of a pain for most of the people who have signed up for subsidies. According to Betsy McCaughey over at Investor’s Business Daily, if you applied for a federal Obamacare subsidy, chances are the bureaucrats got it wrong. Per the article: ObamaCare is making | Read More »
Indiana feticide conviction reveals pro-abort agenda
In a sane world the conviction and sentencing of Purvi Patel for inducing an abortion and then tossing the baby in a dumpster to die would be unremarkable. What she did, regardless of motivation, was horrendous and the only questionable thing involved was that she was convicted of feticide rather than the blatantly obvious murder she carried out. Patel was found guilty in February of neglect | Read More »
Leader of U-Mich “American Sniper” protest caught vandalizing apartment
In the heart of every Progressive, and not very deep in that heart (assuming, arguendo, that such an organ actually exists), dwells a budding fascist. One only has to look at the godfather of the Progressive movement, Woodrow Wilson, to see how it works. As Jonah Goldberg observed in Liberal Fascism, Wilson and his ilk are not believers in the individual: Hence Wilson argued that | Read More »

Babies Born Alive After Botched Abortions are being Murdered or Left to Die Globally
Two years ago I told you about the grizzly practice of babies being born alive after botched abortions and then grotesquely murdered.
They are physically strangled, mutilated, or left to die on the abortionist’s table.
This vile desecration of human rights takes place not only in the us, but all across the world at a stunning rate. The worst part is that the medical community has begun attempting to cover it up.
