    Behold the Face of Progress

    America faces an enemy that is more dangerous than the entire worldwide collection of Islamic terrorists, and more threatening to our long-term sovereignty than our massive national debt. This enemy is the slow and creeping rot of the social institutions that hold this country together – the invisible bonds that make America what she is and that are necessary to the success of any country. | Read More »

    GE, NFL Pay Tribute To Ronald Reagan

    In the panoply of Reagan tributes being issued in memory of Reagan on what would have been his 100th birthday (next Wednesday), this one from GE stands out as being extremely well done. As the tribute notes, Reagan had a relationship with GE as a spokesman in the early days of his political and pre-political careers, and this video does a remarkably good job of | Read More »

    Rare

    “No one is pro-abortion.” -Barack Obama By now I am sure that you have all seen the video of Planned Parenthood actively participating in the coverup of underage sex slavery. If not, please take a few minutes and do so here: We were honored to have SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser cover this story yesterday, and I would encourage you all to read her post | Read More »

    Witness to Atrocity

    Although it is a fact that we only dare to confront in the occasional dark night of our souls, this country has been teetering on the brink of moral illegitimacy for the last 38 years.   Yesterday, I was forcibly reminded of this when someone sent me this excerpt from the forthcoming book Unplanned, in which former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson explains her conversion | Read More »

    Andrew Sullivan is a Raving Moron.

    My friend and RedStater emeritus Pejman Yousefzadeh has discovered a truly astounding thing: The Apocalypse is upon us. Sarah Palin did something, and Andrew Sullivan professes to not giving a hoot. What’s next? An admission that Trig is Sarah Palin’s son? Stock up on the canned goods, and shotguns, people. The Seventh Seal is about to be broken, and the Cubs might win the next | Read More »

    Answering a False Attack

    I should note at the outset of this post that I do not have very strong feelings one way or the other about Reince Priebus, who is currently seeking to replace Michael Steele as RNC chairman. This post is not really intended to be an argument that Priebus is the best candidate for the job. It is merely intended to set the record straight on | Read More »

    Give Bradley Manning His Pillow and Blankie Back

    Glenn Greenwald is really, really upset that we have taken Bradley Manning’s pillow and blankie away. He’s so upset, he’s written one of his typical 8 billion word posts (complete with several pointless updates) explaining, in his prissy and hyperventilating style, that we’re effacing the poor boy’s personality (which by all accounts, would be a desirable result in this case, but that is beside the | Read More »

    I Think Michael Steele Hired Meghan McCain to Write This Statement

    Contrary to the fervent hopes of, well, darn near everyone, Michael Steele has announced that he is seeking another term as RNC chair. In a rambling conference call last night that was reminiscent of Lebron James’ ill-fated The Decision special on ESPN (both in terms of total vacuity and clueless narcissism), Steele announced, to widespread cries of “Ah, crap.” that the RNC could have two | Read More »

    Obamacare’s Individual Mandate Exceeds Congress’ Commerce Clause Power

    I have had time now to briefly read Judge Hudson’s opinion ruling that the individual mandate portion of Obamacare is unconstitutional. My initial impression is that, while this ruling will widely be viewed as a victory for opponents of Obamacare, there are some potential problems with the opinion that may result in this opinion being a net loss down the road (where it will inevitably | Read More »

    Stephen Breyer Takes a Stab at Originalism: Hilarity Ensues

    I have read enough of his opinions to know that Stephen Breyer is not an idiot. However, despite any protestations to the contrary he might make, he undoubtedly is a partisan. And his partisanship leads him down paths that require him to engage in intellectual dishonesty, which serves to make him look like an idiot far more often than he shoud. For example: Appearing on | Read More »

    Gov. Christie and the Fight over Judicial Reform

    Chris Christie’s fights with the teachers’ unions in New Jersey have been well documented in the national press and conservative blogosphere.  However, Christie has been engaged in another, possibly more significant fight over reforming the New Jersey Supreme Court that has, until now received relatively scant amounts of national attention. As detailed in the New York Times and the WSJ ($), the fight erupted in May | Read More »

    Ron Paul Stands With the Totalitarians

    It’s been quite a week for American’s most execrable Congressman. Apparently not content to definitively and irrevocably align himself with enemies of America, Ron Paul has decided to make sure everyone knows that he is the only Member of Congress not opposed to brutal totalitarianism. As in, literally the only one – from Pence to Pelosi, every member of the House (other than Paul) voted to | Read More »

    Al Qaeda’s Favorite Member of Congress Opens His Mouth

    To be fair, when Ron Paul said yesterday that it was completely awesome that Julian Assange was spreading our classified secrets across the internet for the entire world to see, he probably couldn’t have foreseen that the information would contain this: A long list of key facilities around the world that the US describes as vital to its national security has been released by Wikileaks. | Read More »

    Responding to the Two-Inch Crowd on Assange

    Apparently some folks were upset by my suggestion yesterday that it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world if Julian Assange were to find a small caliber bullet in his cranial cavity. I say “apparently” because, if this post from Mediaite is any indication, it’s really hard to tell when these people are actually exercised about something. I had always wondered what Rush meant | Read More »

    A Very Stupid Argument Advanced by Opponents of America

    One would expect, in the wake of the incalculable damage done to America’s diplomatic position in the world by WikiLeaks’ revelation of illegally-obtained diplomatic cables, that condemnation of WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange would be nearly universal among everyone who is not openly rooting for the demise of America. And indeed, when Oliver Willis steps off America-hating bus (see here, here, here, and here) | Read More »
