My Endorsement This Year: Rick Santorum 2012
If you watch politics long enough, you’ll see a moment where the tragedy of a losing campaign gets so bad that you actually stop and laugh. It was the “Taliban Dan” ad back in 2010 that convinced me that Alan Grayson was off to his next stop on his professional career. Examples of this have abounded in the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary. Who can forget | Read More »
The First Amendment And Obamacare
“Conscience is the most sacred of all property.” James Madison Yet another aspect of the American Affordable Care Act has caused the Obama Administration to come-a-cropper with the United States Constitution. The act has already inspired a dense thicket of law suits over its individual mandate provision that forces people to buy insurance or pay a penalty tax for not so doing. Recently, Health and | Read More »
Romney and Faust
And that is called paying the Dane-geld; But we’ve proved it again and again, That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld You never get rid of the Dane. – Rudyard Kipling The Jeffersonian.com There are certain things you should never be willing to do just to get ahead. In the end, the short-term gains never justify the cost of having sold out your | Read More »
Defeat That Omnibus!
“Why are we bailing them out from their biggest debt with the voting public? Why are Republicans in a rush to move on from issues that embarrass Democrats?” It is still inexplicable to me why Republicans should violate their pledge against passing an Omnibus, in order to meet an artificial deadline set by those who never passed a budget. Democrats were too incompetent to pass | Read More »
Tech at Night: It is urgent that we stop SOPA; Google wising up?
Censorship’s the big word right now. The FCC’s under pressure to ban pro sports blackouts, and the Supreme Court may end national profanity rules. However I consider those things small. Few people have access to television broadcasts. Most of us aren’t actually censored by these regulations. We all have access to the Internet though; that’s how a nobody like me is able to shape the | Read More »

SBA List Video Highlights Obama’s Laser Like Focus on Government Funding of Abortion
It has been said many times that President Obama is the most pro-abortion President in our history. I wonder where people possibly get that idea? Could it be because he thinks it is more of a “punishment” to have a baby than to live with the life-long guilt and pain of aborting a child? Or could it be because he talks about babies as ‘it’ | Read More »
Is It Pro-Choice, If It’s An Offer You Can’t Refuse?
“I asked the doctor if it was a boy or girl,” Wei said. “The doctor said it was a boy. My friends who were beside me said the baby’s body was completely black. I felt desolate, so I didn’t look up to see the baby. The nurses dealt with the body like it was rubbish,” Wei said. “They wrapped it up in a black plastic | Read More »
The Boehner Plan: Phony Cuts, Slimy Procedures, Dangerous Ignorance
The main problems with the Boehner proposal are: Most of the initial $1.2 trillion of discretionary cuts are (1) from defense, or (2) are phony, out-year, and easily avoided. The compensatory immediate $1 trillion increase in the debt limit is, on the other hand, very real. Even worse, however, the notion of giving a Reid/Pelosi/McConnell/Boehner-appointed commission the power to devise non-filibusterable, unamendable tax increases (or, | Read More »
Proclaim Liberty Throughout the Land on this Independence Day
As Benjamin Franklin left Independence Hall after the Constitutional Convention, he was reportedly asked by a lady, “well doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” He famously replied, “a republic, if you can keep it.” Today, more than ever before, is a time to celebrate the roots of our founding – and resolve to preserve this republic as a paragon of liberty | Read More »
Key votes on Abortion, DADT, START, and Gitmo This Week.
Today, the House will consider two bills with some amendments that are important to conservatives. Abortion After a period of morning speeches, the House will finish work on H.R. 1216- the fourth bill brought to the floor that defunds mandatory appropriations for an Obamacare program. This bill rescinds all unobligated funds for graduate medical training programs created under Obamacare. It also subjects the remaining appropriations | Read More »
Modern technology brings diagnoses earlier–even in the womb. In the U.S., that means that 90% of children with Down’s Syndrom are aborted thanks to amniocentesis. In this UK example, a child diagnosed via ultrasound with Spina Bifida was aborted [WARNING: this is very disturbing]. His mother’s experience is what follows: Yet if making that choice was hard, the physical ordeal was only just beginning. At | Read More »
In Ocala, Florida Modern America Reaps What It Has Sown.
Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. – Galatians VI King James Version (HT: The Phrase Finder) The town of Ocala, Florida played host to an absolutely brutal crime. A 15-year-old boy, who apparently had the survival will of Rasputin, was beaten, shot seven times, burned, killed and cremated. Afterwards, the ashes were hidden in several paint cans. How horrible! Who could do | Read More »
Counting Our Hot Buttons: Abortion Numbers in Perspective
With the recent debate over federal taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood bringing the abortion debate back to the surface, it is sometimes useful to look at the numbers to get a little perspective on why this issue is such a large one. (All of these are estimates, and sources vary, but there’s no serious debate as to the scale of the numbers). Number killed or | Read More »
Planned Parenthood Clinics Help Statutory Rapists Cover Their Tracks
Planned Parenthood claims to support women’s health. Their institutional actions, though, indicate they support criminal activity that would harm a child. How? By facilitating abortions for children raped by adult men. Fully 91% of the abortion clinics contacted would help an underaged girl receive an abortion even when the clinic counselor knew the father was an adult male. Consider only one of 813 examples of | Read More »
Ezra Klein Supports Killing Black Babies
What’s wrong with you, bitter clingers? Don’t you realize that a dead child is a cheap child? I mean, all dead babies cost is the funds to suck or cut them mercilessly from their mother’s womb. Presto! No more pesky expenses of a living child. Ezra Klein, writing at the Washington Post, actually proffers that argument in favor of taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood; that abortions | Read More »
