Let’s Be Honest
Most conservatives thought they had the Burwell case. They’d all concluded that they were going to lose on gay marriage, which they will, but that Burwell they had. And it was a big loss. But we should also be honest. The United States Supreme Court saved the Republican Party from itself. In closed doors on Capitol Hill, Republican leaders had every intention of rushing through | Read More »
June 25, 1876. Little Bighorn
Perhaps no battle in American history has been as thoroughly dissected and is still subject to as much controversy as the Battle of Little Bighorn. This was not a large battle. Custer’s command consisted of twelve understrength cavalry troops totaling 647 officers and men. It wasn’t even the largest defeat the US Army suffered at the hands of American Indians. The Seventh Cavalry lost 268 | Read More »

Mark Meadows reinstated as subcommittee chairman
In a day that has seen the Constitution shredded by Chief Justice John Roberts and his band of merry iconoclasts there is some small amount of good news. A couple of days ago, Erick reported on how a couple of Speaker Boehner’s lickspittles, Elise Stefanik and Mimi Walters, were trying to eject conservative Ken Buck from the ceremonial position as president of the freshman class. This was a triumph | Read More »
TIME Magazine: Army Embraces Confederacy with Fort Names
If TIME Magazine’s Mark Thompson has his way, the media-driven outcry over public displays of the Confederate Flag will eventually force the U.S. Army to start changing the names of some of its most venerable posts that dot the American south. There is no room for any individual or institution – including the U.S. Army – to defend the evils of slavery or the reprehensible | Read More »
The Affordable Care Act is back on the table
The mind-numbing decision from the Supreme Court regarding the King v. Burwell case is just one of many things that folks on the right will cite as evidence that this nation is going to the dogs, and they are probably not wrong. However, in terms of political opportunity, considering Barack Obama has a year and a half left in office, there is great potential for Republican presidential | Read More »

For all the liberal bloviating about the new direction of SCOTUS under CJ Roberts, today’s opinion in King v. Burwell demonstrates that essentially, nothing has changed. The court is still forced into feckless pragmatism whenever a conservative principle is at stake, but is perfectly willing to venture beyond the expressed will of Congress in order to advance liberal agenda items on their own initiative. Today’s decision, | Read More »
The Confederate Battle Flag Debate: I Didn’t Sign On for This
For the most part, I’ve been trying to avoid the recent debates over the acceptability of the Confederate battle flag. Seeing my friends and acquaintances talk about it has done nothing but exasperate me. I am a born and bred Southerner. Some of ancestors settled along the Mississippi Coast in about the 1750s. The family I have that fought in the Civil War all fought | Read More »

I’m Pro-Life and Support the Death Penalty
In the midst of the continued sorrow from last week’s massacre in Charleston, another act of terror was once again back in the spotlight. On Wednesday, the formal sentencing of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the two responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing in April 2013, occurred. His sentence? Death.

Rush Is Right
This morning at 6:15 am ET, I will be on Fox & Friends. The kicking off point for the conversation is Rush Limbaugh’s comment that the Confederate flag is just the starting point for a leftwing assault on American culture at large. The left is led by a President who himself has said our nation is not really special. After all, every other nation thinks | Read More »
