The Sheriff’s Race…..

The Sheriff’s Race…..

on December 15, 2013, 10:08 AM / in Opinion

During the 1994 election I concluded as early as my first interview with David Woolfork that he was a charmer. He was smooth like a good scotch. He could recount stories that would connect you to him via your brother, your sister, your cousins, your uncle, or your parents. If you didn’t know better, you might think he grew up with you. […]

Christmas Under Assault, but Faithful Fight Back

Christmas Under Assault, but Faithful Fight Back

on December 15, 2013, 7:23 AM / in Opinion

Written by  Dave Bohon It has been a tough road the last few years for those who wish to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, and thus far this holiday season hasn’t held much hope for an end to the various and sundry attacks on those celebrating the birth of the Savior. Several weeks ago, a choir director for a […]

Where Have You Gone, Bill of Rights?

on December 15, 2013, 7:20 AM / in Opinion

On June 8, 1789 James Madison, the congressman representing Virginia’s 5th District, rose to speak in a session of the First Congress and advocated passage of a slate of amendments to the Constitution that would come to be known as the Bill of Rights. On December 15, 1791, the requisite number of states (three-quarters, or nine states) ratified 10 of […]

I am currently on the west coast doing a string of dates and will fly back home on Monday with only New Orleans left on the 20th to finish up the touring year. It’s gone by in a hurry and, as always, I have thoroughly enjoyed being on the road with my guys and thank God that I can make […]

Culture of Corruption: The Dems’ Dangerous DHS Pick

Culture of Corruption: The Dems’ Dangerous DHS Pick

on December 13, 2013, 9:10 AM / in Opinion

 By Michelle Malkin The “S” in President Obama’s DHS doesn’t stand for “security.” It stands for “sleaze.” In the wake of Dirty Harry Reid’s sabotage of the filibuster, Democrats have rammed through the Senate nomination of a shady Chicago crony associated with dangerous Clinton corruption and at least two visas-for-sale schemes. The White House wants Alejandro Mayorkas to helm the […]

Boehner’s Crocodile Tears for Amnesty

on December 13, 2013, 8:44 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

By: Erick Erickson It is an odd fight.  Such a weird little battle over meaningless and known outcomes.  Conservatives, aware from press reports and congressional leaks, knew what would be in the Paul Ryan drafted budget plan.  The conservative groups released statements in opposition to the plan based on what they had been told.  But there was never any doubt […]

A Line In The Sand Is Being Drawn Again

on December 13, 2013, 6:20 AM / in Opinion

This column is archived here. In March of 1836, a young man of twenty-three years of age took his sword out of its scabbard and drew a line in the sand in front of an old mission outside of San Antonio, Texas, and called on the men defending that mission who were willing to stay on the ramparts and face […]

Are the Senkakus Worth a War?

Are the Senkakus Worth a War?

on December 13, 2013, 6:17 AM / in Opinion

“The U.S.-Japan Mutual Security Treaty of 1960 obligates the United States to treat any armed attack against any territories under the administration of Japan as dangerous to [America’s] own peace and safety. This would cover such islets as the Senkakus also claimed by Beijing.” So this author wrote 15 years ago in “A Republic Not an Empire.” And so it […]

Long-Term Vision

on December 12, 2013, 9:56 AM / in Opinion

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) announced the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 Tuesday night, and, as expected, it’s a mixed bag. There are no tax increases and no extension of costly unemployment benefits but the compromise also busts the hard-won sequester caps from the 2011 Budget Control Act. Ryan argues, “In divided government, you don’t always […]

Sending Holiday Season Regards to our Conservative Warriors

on December 12, 2013, 8:17 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Pleasantly surprised and a bit shocked, I enjoyed religious Christmas Carols played in the elevator of a major hotel. Progressive bullies are relentless in their quest to repeal the celebration of Jesus’ birthday, Christmas, declared a federal holiday in 1870 by President Ulysses S. Grant. Illustrating the effectiveness of the progressive’s intimidation, anonymously signs are being stealthily posted in public […]

By William Norman Grigg / Pro Libertate Blog Utah resident Virginia Ward cried on November 18 as she was sentenced to 90 days in jail – and three years of probation — for drug trafficking. This meant that she would join the large and ever-growing population of prisoners she helped to create as a former Justice Court Judge. As if in compensation […]

In it I noted that Contrary to the line being pushed into the conventional wisdom by the Ruling Class, the government shutdown was much more than a disagreement over tactics [The Budget Shutdown Was About Ideology Not Tactics], it […]

The Ryan Budget Fight is Partly Bill Clinton’s Republican Legacy

on December 12, 2013, 7:57 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

By: Erick Erickson Everyone really should be able to admit it is the oddest and most nonsensical fight. The Ryan budget does raise taxes.  It does fund Obamacare.  It does break sequestration.  And it does nothing to address the debt and deficit.  It is a compromised can kicked down the road just to a further distance than normal.  In doing […]

By: Michael Hammond / The RedState Greta Van Susteren claims not to like ObamaCare.  Last night alone, she talked about how ObamaCare was destroying the insurance industry, destroying medical practice, compromising your privacy, and insuring that (unlike the “1%”) you would not have access to the top doctors treating your serious medical condition (and would be forced to die).

CHRISTMAS WITHOUT CHRIST

By William A. Donohue Even though roughly 80 percent of Americans are Christian, 96 percent celebrate Christmas. Can non-Christians and non-believers really celebrate Christmas? To some extent they can, just the same way those who are not Irish can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day: they can partake in the fun aspects of it, but that’s it. At bottom, it’s a hollow […]
