Conservative commentary on American politics and the issues of the day.

The Second Amendment and the Tale of Two Women

When the story broke about the 18 year old widow who killed an intruder while defending herself and her infant baby it made big news. The 911 call was replayed over and over again. But why? The truth is that every year in the United States, thousands of people defend themselves from those who are attempting to hurt them. Few ...

Bob Beckel: Liberals Created A Dependent Society With Welfare

We live in a world of “Gotcha Journalism” that greases its wheels with quotes like the one in this video.  That is why I’m going to try to share it responsibly.  Bob Beckel, the “resident Liberal” at Fox News, made a startling comment today on The Five.  When briefly discussing entitlements, he said that Liberals had made a “terrible mistake” ...

More judicial tyranny in Sharia law ruling

When judges are deciding cases in American courts, you’d think we would want to limit them to using laws that were enacted by our elected representatives.  Not so according to U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange.  In fact, she believes it could actually be unconstitutional. In the 2010 election, the voters of Oklahoma approved an amendment to that state’s constitution that ...

President Mitt Obama.

Timmy Pawlenty started the comparison of Mitt Romney to Barack Obama using the phrase Romneycare. Yet, the reality is that Mitt Romney has done the best to promote the idea that he (Mitt Romney) is the duplicate of Barack Obama. I prefer to call him Obama-lite. Tonight in the FOX Debate in South Carolina twice in the first twelve minutes ...

Jon Huntsman Drops Out; Ain't A Dang Thing Changed

In case you haven’t heard, former governor of Utah, Jon Huntsman Jr. has officially dropped out of the Republican primary.  That’s not surprising, really, considering that he spent most of the past year in the single digits.  What is surprising is that he didn’t bow out on the night of the New Hampshire primary; the guy practically lived there, and ...

Patriotism and Partisanship

I’ve noticed a troubling trend in patriotism lately. It would appear that those who live and breathe politics see patriotism as a partisan (or, at least, right versus left) issue. People hear the word “patriot,” and automatically assume that it’s code for “conservative.” They see some kind of covert plan to rebrand conservative ideology. Is it possible that patriotism has ...

Remembering Dr. King's Struggle Against Gun Control

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Like every year, there will be discussion of his life and achievements. I wish to tell a different story: the story of his struggle against racist gun control laws. Dr. King, who was a registered Republican, kept guns at home for self-defense. He applied for a permit to carry a handgun, but was ...

The part of James O'Keefe's video that no one is talking about

James O’Keefe’s latest video – in which several election officials in New Hampshire handed out ballots for dead people – has a lot of people talking about the issue of requiring photo ID at polling places.  But for me, it immediately brings up a different question. Why should it be illegal to videotape public officials? When some local politicians in ...

Too Dumb to Live?

“Dumber than a bag of hammers”, “one peanut short of a snickers “, “dumber than a rock”…  I could go on….  And I will!  “A few fries short of a happy meal”.  “One clown shy of a circus”….   Dumber than a post… a doornail…. an entire sector of the population that doesn’t have to pay taxes and will subsequently ...

The choice will be between the winner of the Republican nomination process, and incumbent President Barack Obama. The overwhelming topic that will drive the election is jobs and the economy. Without a stable, vibrant work force, ...

Letter to Congress: Uphold Your Oath or Resign

January 10, 2012 Sen. Inhofe, Sen. Coburn, Rep. Boren: I am writing concerning several issues that show a total contempt for the Constitution and We the People of the United States of America by Barack Obama, and more frightening, the Congress of the United States of America. I have just been made aware of S. 1698 which seeks to strip citizenship ...

Republicans Attempt to Change a Light Bulb

I don’t know precisely how many Republicans it takes to change a light bulb, but I can tell you that 289 are evidently not enough. That’s how many Republicans are in the House and Senate, yet they can’t accomplish a relatively simple task and repeal the ban on incandescent bulbs that went into effect January 1st. And this repeal isn’t ...

Ron Paul Isn't Dead Yet

Yesterday I described the need to capitalize on Ron Paul’s following among younger voters. Despite predictions that his campaign is now on the decline, I don’t think we should count him out just yet. Paul’s success to date has been attributed- rightly or wrongly- to the fact that Iowa allows same-day registration, and New Hampshire is an open primary state. ...

The Importance of the Church being Culturally Relevant

The church’s role in a social interacting and advanced, technological paradigm-shifting world is very intriguing, but yet so important to world culture. The big question surrounding this is: How does the church engage in cultural outside the theological remedy without violating its core principals? Culture is all about engagement. To be engaged, of course, means that you cannot be an ...
