Live Action: Gosnell Isn’t Alone
Gosnell is an outlier. Gosnell is the end result of anti-choice legislation. More Gosnells will be created if abortions are outlawed, and pro-lifers hate women. These were the many talking points pushed by the pro-abortion crowd when conservatives put Dr. Kermt Gosnell – and his Philadelphia abortion clinic – back into the limelight. Now, Live Action has released a new video after a six-month investigation exposing how Gosnell isn’t alone when | Read More »
So, When Will The ABC, NBC, and CBS Report on Obamacare?
As the Big Three –NBC, ABC, and CBS – continue to engage in, to borrow a George Will term, journalistic malpractice over Obamacare’s adverse effects on the economy, they probably missed the development concerning some Democrats, who’ve started to chip away at portions of the bill. Some labor unions are calling for full repeal, and Democratic senators are trying to excise the medical devices tax | Read More »
Progress Kentucky Executive Director Met With White House Officials
In the fallout of the Progress Kentucky being outed for recording of Sen. Mitch McConnell’s campaign strategy meeting last February, ethics violations were lobbied by both sides. Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington (CREW), a Soros-funded group, accused McConnell of using his staff for campaign activities, specifically opposition research, on government time. Yet, there seems to have been a copyediting mistake – or intentional | Read More »
Kermit Gosnell: Feminists Deny Abortion Doctor Cover Up and Blame Conservatives
As the Kermit Gosnell case proceeds, the grand jury report was released this week detailing the abortion doctor’s house of horrors. Yet, as conservatives slam media outlets for their lack of coverage, the left reacted by saying that they had reported on Gosnell since his arrest in 2011, and how the pro-life movement is somehow responsible for the “underground” operation he set up in Philadelphia. While it’s great | Read More »
Kentucky Progress: Did the Left Put A “Hit” On Senator McConnell
We know now that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s recent campaign strategy meeting regarding Ashley Judd was recorded by Progress Kentucky, who admitted to making the tape, and that it was done outside in an adjacent hallway. David Corn, who broke the story, has no comment. Local Kentucky Democrat, Jacob Conway, said he outed the group to “protect the Democratic Party.” Regardless, it still doesn’t negate the fact this recording was | Read More »
Do Democrats Think They’re Immune for Obamacare’s Fallout in 2014?
Matt Canter, the Deputy Executive Director for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, is fired up about Obamacare, and how it might be innocuous to Senate Democrats in 2014. Yet, could this be a sign of the hubris that sunk Republicans in 2006, 2008, 2012? After all, prior to the 2006 slaughter, the GOP was ahead of Democrats concerning targeting voters and digital strategy. Remember Voter | Read More »

I Smite Thee, in the Name of Andrew!
We lost Andrew Breitbart just over a year ago. Since then, there have been endless discussions about how best to honor his memory, pondering over whether anyone could possibly fill his shoes. As I look back over the past year, I’m sad to admit that I think we as a conservative movement are doing a very poor job of carrying on Andrew’s legacy. Now, I don’t claim to | Read More »
EDIT: I should have been a little more clear when I discussed compromise. As Bill S. says in the comments, more often than not, it boils down to libertarians and liberals calling for social conservatives to go their way, rather than vice versa. Compromise is a two-way street. Over the past several days, we’ve watched our country devolve into arguments over a social issue that | Read More »
Kagan ’09: ‘There is No Federal Constitutional Right to Same-Sex Marriage’
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane. It’s 2009, and Elena Kagan is answering questions during her confirmation hearing for the position of Solicitor General within the Obama administration. According to William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection, who posted this piece on March 25, this is what she had to say about gay marriage: 1. As Solicitor General, you would be charged with defending the Defense of Marriage Act. | Read More »
Is The Marketplace Fairness Act A Giant Tax Increase?
The Marketplace Fairness Act passed last Friday, and conservatives are somewhat lukewarm about it. As Robert W. Wood wrote in Forbes on March 23, …[the bill] doesn’t impose a federal tax or even a new state tax. Online sellers are already required to collect sales tax from customers in their own states. But under the Supreme Court’s 1992 holding in Quill v. North Dakota, retailers don’t | Read More »
Finally! Radical Caitlin Halligan Withdraws Nomination To D.C. Court Of Appeals
Well, it took three years, but Caitlin Halligan will not be a sitting on the D.C. Court of Appeals. She’s known for her progressive political views and judicial activism, which were so far outside the mainstream that other courts rejected her legal arguments. Ed Whelan at the National Review has documented her radical judicial philosophy. In 2004, Halligan signed a report issued by the Association of | Read More »
Bostic Hopes For A ‘Ted Cruz’ Moment Against Sanford
In the the race to fill the vacant seat left by former Congressman – now Senator – Tim Scott (R- South Carolina), we have disgraced former Gov. Mark Sanford (R-South Carolina) and Curtis Bostic. Sanford failed to received 50% of the vote, which means there’s going to be a runoff election on April 2. Robert Behre of the Post and Courier wrote yesterday that: Bostic said Sanford stole tax money, | Read More »
We Must Take Care of Our Own
What are conservatives supposed to think when they elect 240 members to Congress who ran as limited government warriors, only to find a few dozen members actually fighting for those values when it counts? Were they all a bunch of frauds? Undoubtedly, there are many Republicans in Congress who never were conservatives from day one or who never understood the true meaning of conservatism when | Read More »
Lindsey Graham Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall Of Shame
Have you heard that scientists are going to start using lawyers and politicians instead of rats for laboratory experiments? Apparently, this keeps the scientists from becoming too attached to their subjects . . . and there are simply some things even a rat won’t do. While it’s true that every member of The Strident Conservative G.O.P. Hall of Shame is worse than a rat when | Read More »

Sen. Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban Amendment is DOA
Well, any conservative could have seen this coming, despite the incessant rambling of anti-gun zealots calling for a ban on so-called assault weapons. The first ban had a de minimis effect on lowering violent crime, and Democrats paid a heavy political price during the ’94 midterms for it. Now, the Washington Post’s Ed O’Keefe reports today that this anti-gun provision is dead on arrival. Furthermore, it’s not included in the | Read More »
