Illogical Extremism of the left


Recent events prove beyond reasonable doubt that members of the institutionalized “progressive” left are more than enthusiastic about attacking guns and gun owners. True to their Alinsky roots, they are ready, willing and eager to demonize gun owners and Second Amendment proponents by disparagingly using the term “gun lobby” to describe them.  It is no secret that they are openly ...

“Progressive” Gun Control

bho gun control

The Second Amendment is not about hunting.  It is about the Right of the American people to prevent the likes of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Diane Feinstein, Andrew Cuomo et al from obtaining unrestrained power. It is about the power of the people to prevent their being rounded up and put in gulags and/or concentration camps. The American people are ...

The Progressives Push For New “Assault” Weapons Ban Is Bad Policy

Screen Shot 2012-12-20 at 2.00.11 AM

I stand firm with my fellow members at the National Rifle Association.  I couldn’t be more proud to be part of an organization that defends the Second Amendment, which is one of the most important rights within our Constitution.  Over the past forty-eight hours, the NRA has been slammed for being somehow complicit in the various incidents connected gun violence – ...

I’m waiting for liberals to make their own 47 percent comment on guns

Screen Shot 2012-12-15 at 6.57.04 PM

In the wake of the Newtown shootings, the left is clamoring for more gun control.  They want to ban assault weapons – which is liberal speak for scary guns – and do something about high-capacity magazines because they incentivize us to be mean, vicious, and violent.  However, as John Fund noted in National Review, it’s time to talk about the mental ...

Abject union thuggery

Screen Shot 2012-12-17 at 1.00.32 AM

We’ve all seen the video of the Lansing, Michigan union protests.  They’re mad that Gov. Rick Snyder passed a right-to-work law, which would curtail the power unions have in the state.  It’s Wisconsin reloaded.  However, the level of thuggery and violence has reached a whole new level.  Union supporters thought that they could really make a difference in this debate ...

Repeat after me: gun control isn’t the answer

Screen Shot 2012-12-15 at 7.40.44 PM

The tragedy in Newton, CT should shake us all to our very core. Of the 26 who were killed yesterday, 20 of them were children. It’s evil. It’s grotesque. And I’m sure many mothers and fathers were holding their children a little tighter last night. Sadly, for twenty families, that will no longer be possible. Our thoughts and prayers should ...

Jim DeMint – Change in Washington Can Only Come From the Outside


Great conservatives like Marco Rubio, Mike Lee and Rand Paul can only be topped with a Senate majority. If so, it won’t be with Senator DeMint as he moves to the Heritage Foundation. The true fight in engaging Washington and politics in general is from the outside. …you cannot change Washington from the inside. You can only change it from ...

The Lonely Position of Neutral

Screen Shot 2012-12-12 at 2.29.52 AM

I hate raising taxes.  I find high tax rates immoral.  However, we lost the election.  An increase in revenue is inevitable.  What’s perverse about this whole episode is that if we fall off the cliff – Democrats will get everything they want. They’ll get their tax increases, their revenue, and defense cuts.  They would complete their decade-long project of ending ...

Tea Party-Unite

Tax Day Protest

With the re-election of Barack Obama and the continuation of Harry Reid’s reign of terror in the U.S. Senate, these are dark times for America. For America to survive, Americans must save it.  Expressions to the contrary notwithstanding, Americans reside within the Tea Party. Members of the Tea Party must stop their infighting turf wars if they ever hope to ...

Justice Alito Stresses Federalism As Refuge from Usurpatory Government

Screen Shot 2012-11-17 at 3.33.49 AM

  With the Supreme Court and the future of constitutional government in doubt, it’s always reassuring to hear from the voices who espouse those views.  I’m an ardent optimist.  I have faith that the electorate will correct their decisions made on Nov. 6, and constrain this president’s pernicious agenda of implementing a hyper-regulatory progressive state.  The Federalist Society’s 30th Anniversary ...

Sen. Mike Lee and Senator-Elect Ted Cruz: ‘Our Ideas Work, Their Ideas Don’t’

Screen Shot 2012-11-17 at 3.26.14 AM

Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Senator-Elect Ted Cruz (R-TX) were adamant about two things when they addressed The Federalist Society’s discussion about constitutional law and the Supreme Court yesterday: “our [conservative] ideas work, their [ liberal] ideas don’t.”  Furthermore, our ideas have been winning the argument, which explains why law schools are limiting the amount of speakers – invited by ...

How Immigration Ruined The Californian Republican Party

Screen Shot 2012-11-12 at 1.26.20 AM

As we on the Right continue to ponder how we got handily beaten by a president with a dismal record, one of the areas that are salient in our rebuilding efforts rests with Hispanic voters.  About fifty thousand latinos turn eighteen every month, making this a key demographic Republicans must become competitive if we to survive as a political force. ...

The Day After…

Screen Shot 2012-11-08 at 12.50.27 AM

Well, we lost.  Mitt Romney didn’t win comfortably.  BUT, Republicans maintained control of the House of Representatives.  In one of the most ignominious highlights of the night, the GOP lost two senate seats – increasing the Democratic majority by two.  The current makeup is 55 Democrats to 45 Republicans.  In a milestone for the ladies, 20% of the U.S. Senate ...

My Prediction: Romney Wins Comfortably

Screen Shot 2012-11-05 at 11.37.45 PM

The day has arrived.  In about twenty-four hours, the stains of Barack Obama will be wiped clean and honor and dignity will be restored to The White House under President-elect Mitt Romney.  It hasn’t been an easy road.  Conservatives waged a brutal primary battle that left us with a scarred nominee – Romney – coming out of the gate to ...
