    The Media’s Attempts to Troll America on Palestine Have Failed

    The Media's Attempts to Troll America on Palestine Have Failed

    It is difficult to find a subject on which the Western media is more monolithic in its view than the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Despite the uncontroverted fact that the latest round of fighting – like virtually all the other rounds of fighting – was unquestionably started by the Palestinians, and that the Palestinians have rejected a cease fire, the media are | Read More »

    Mark Pryor Stands Against Religious Liberty

    Mark Pryor Stands Against Religious Liberty

    Mark Pryor is in the fight of his political life against Tom Cotton in what has become one of the reddest states in the country, and also one of the most religious states in the country. It is no coincidence then that Pryor has been seen holding a Bible and saying the word “Jesus” more often than a revival preacher in a tent. Pryor’s first | Read More »

    Louisiana Common Core Fight Coming to a Head Today

    Louisiana Common Core Fight Coming to a Head Today

    For those who have not been following the issue, Louisiana is the current ground zero in the fight over the implementation of Common Core standards. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has issued an executive order suspending implementation of Common Core and suspended a contract that State Superintendent John White had entered into for the purchase of Common Core related materials and supplies. The Louisiana Board of | Read More »

    Playing the Race Deck

    Playing the Race Deck

    It is almost tiresome at this point to address the topic of race and opposition to Obama. But with Eric Holder’s remarks earlier this week that a significant part of opposition to Obama and Holder was driven by “racial animus,” the President’s many apologists in the media have yet again taken up the cry. Someone named Dorothy Brown, who is a Critical Race Theory professor | Read More »

    The Commodification of Men

    The Commodification of Men

    Last week, author Susan Patton was on Fox and Friends with Steve Doocy and the resulting segment has become a source of some controversy not just among the usual feminist crowd but also among even some conservative professional women. ThinkProgress summed up the exchange thusly: The controversial author criticized today’s women for “acting like such an entitled princess” and prioritizing careers ahead of their families. Men, Patton | Read More »

    Neither Charles Blow nor President Obama Knows How to Take Responsibility

    Neither Charles Blow nor President Obama Knows How to Take Responsibility

    I have said for many years that there is literally nothing that Obama could do that would not earn either a defense or outright praise from New York Times Parody Columnist Charles Blow. The latest example of Blow’s inimitable lickspittlery purports to be an indignant response to John Boehner’s facially obvious assertion that Barack Obama refuses to take responsibility for anything. Blow claims, in his | Read More »

    Mark Begich’s Feeble Attempt to Run Away From (and Against) President Obama

    Mark Begich's Feeble Attempt to Run Away From (and Against) President Obama

    Predictably, Mark Begich (D-AK) is attempting to run away from, and even against, President Obama, who was never particularly popular in Alaska on his best day and is performing especially poorly now. Begich is so desperate to create space from Obama that he is attempting to create the impression that he is not just different from Obama; he is actively opposed to Obama. BARROW, Alaska | Read More »

    Amanda Marcotte’s Continuing Assault on Facts, Decency, and Reason

    Usually I avoid responding to political columnists who are obviously afflicted with particularly insidious forms of dementia which of necessity includes Amanda Marcotte. But this particularly insane rant – which exists solely to take unsourced and spurious accusations against crisis pregnancy centers – is so blatantly dishonest and delusional that it demands at least some sort of response. The basic thrust of Marcotte’s argument is | Read More »

    Mark Udall (D-CO) Objectifies Women

    Mark Udall (D-CO) Objectifies Women

    It’s often said that men objectify women by reducing them to one (or more) of their body parts in a sexual fashion. Colorado’s Democrat Senator Mark Udall, who is in deep trouble in his re-election bid, is guilty of just such objectification as he desperately tries to woo women voters to save his job. Udall has made it clear that he intends to make women | Read More »

    The Common Core Assault on Homeschooling

    The Common Core Assault on Homeschooling

    Ohio is one of the many states in the U.S. that is scheduled to implement the controversial Common Core requirements next year. Although the Ohio legislature has attempted to essentially “half opt in” to Common Core by at least theoretically allowing county school boards to construct curricula outside of Common Core, and although Common Core at least in theory does not constrict homeschooling, Ohio homeschooling | Read More »

    The Hidden Costs of Obamacare

    The Hidden Costs of Obamacare

    Obamacare is a tax that is costly to businesses and individuals in a lot of obvious ways. Many of those, though – the penalties, the fees, the increased costs of coverage, the loss of doctors and health plans – have already been covered ad nauseam. One aspect of the law’s cost to the American economy that has received comparatively little attention has been the compliance costs | Read More »

    President Obama Refuses to Treat the Border Crisis Seriously

    President Obama Refuses to Treat the Border Crisis Seriously

    Right now, a legal and humanitarian crisis is unfolding on our Southern border. And our President simply cannot bring himself to take the problem seriously. By all accounts, tens of thousands of refugees have spilled across the border, many of whom are unaccompanied minors or single parents. A large plurality of the accumulated mass are not illegal immigrants seeking to come here for work, but | Read More »

    The Indifferent Leader

    The Indifferent Leader

    Obama has had a very bad year at the Supreme Court. As catalogued by Reason, the President has suffered a series of stunning and mostly unanimous rebukes at the hands of SCOTUS (including the two Justices he appointed) in connection with executive branch overreach. Predictably, Obama has responded to this rebuke by going on the stump and swearing to do even more than he has | Read More »

    The White House Does Not Understand What Happened in the Hobby Lobby Case

    The White House Does Not Understand What Happened in the Hobby Lobby Case

    It is not surprising that most leftist commentators are completely missing the boat on the Hobby Lobby decision. After all, one does not become a writer for The Nation or Mother Jones or DailyKos by being smart or knowledgeable. What’s troubling is that the White House seems equally clueless as to what actually happened today – although it’s still up in the air whether this | Read More »

    Totalitarians Oppose Today’s SCOTUS Rulings

    Totalitarians Oppose Today's SCOTUS Rulings

    Make no mistake, both of today’s SCOTUS rulings were about freedom. And the parade of screeching liberals opposed to both results has made it clear that when it comes to freedom, they are against it. The first case, Harris v. Quinn, dealt with the freedom of employees to refuse to join a union or pay compulsory dues to a union they don’t wish to belong to. | Read More »
