Oh Brave New World
Texas’s Attorney General Ken Paxton has released a letter with guidance that I suspect we will see around the country. The question is whether county clerks, county employees, justices of the peace, etc. must be compelled to issue a license for a gay marriage. The answer, as it should be, is no dependent on facts.

Rick Perry’s ACTUAL Legacy
When Rick Perry announced his run for office, the emergence of a raft of memes from the rabid left was a foregone conclusion. They despise Rick Perry, just as they despise all of Texas. Because Wendy Davis. Because guns. Because Bush. And because Rick Perry already ran in 2012. Like the sun rising in the east and setting in a carefully concealed sound stage run | Read More »
Abortion Industry’s “Hail Satan” Lawsuit Against Texas Pro-Life Law Goes Down in Flames

Fracking might not be Cause of Those Earthquakes After All
One of the favorite stories trotted out by the media and opponents of fracking is that the process causes earthquakes. Unsurprisingly, it looks like this is yet another case of the media and the Left relying on the narrative instead of scientific facts.

I appreciate the point Martha McCallum and Franklin Graham made. Just because we have the right, does | Read More »

Normal people were appalled at the atrocity, and several more knew that the phrase “Don’t Mess With Texas” was more than just words.

God Bless Texas
My favorite drawings at the Muhammad cartoon festival in Texas were the two chalk outlines out front.— Evan Sayet (@EvanSayet) May 4, 2015 Liberals who are perfectly fine dropping a crucifix in a jar of urine and calling it art are appalled that Pamela Gellar would hold a “draw Mohammed” contest in Texas. “She’s just asking for trouble,” they proclaimed.
