Useful Idiots | Alan Charles Itzkoff

useful-idiots

Nothing screams “unhinged” more than the behavior of Hillary voters since the shocking electoral victory of  Donald Trump this past November.  If ever there was an example of a nation full of people stuck at the first stage of grief, this is it.  Coming to terms with the concept that the American people rejected their [...]


Is Obama A Radical Muslim Sympathizer? | Alan Charles Itzkoff

obama-muslim

Many people have accused Barack Hussein Obama of being a closet Muslim.  But, so far, there is no evidence to suggest that this is so.  The President claims that he is a Christian and a man should be taken at his word unless it can be proved otherwise.  That said, Obama may not be a [...]


Blood On Their Hands | Alan Charles Itzkoff

cnn-blood

It has been said that perception is reality. When I was a kid growing up in NJ in the Sixties and Seventies, my parents told me to respect the police and I did. I watched shows like Dragnet (Just the facts ma’am) and Hawaii Five-O (Book him Dano!) where the cops were the good guys. [...]


Why Must The SJW Crowd Be Such Jerks? | Alan Charles Itzkoff

sjwarrior2-jpg

Personally, I am a live and let live kind of guy. As long as you are not interfering with my pursuit of happiness, I am more than happy to let you enjoy yours. But, that isn’t enough for many. There are far too many folk in this country who feel like they have the right [...]


Every Senate Budget Committee Democrat Votes ‘No’ on Balancing the Budget | Guy Benson

bankruptcy-sign

Imagine that!  Their own plan doesn’t even come close to balancing, of course, and they’re not interested in other ideas to get there.  The first Republican amendment they torpedoed yesterday called for increasing federal spending at a clip of “only” 3.4 percent per year over the next decade, rather than the major acceleration that Democrats [...]


Popes and Dopes | James Taranto

popefrancis

The Roman Catholic Church has a new pope, and The New Yorker’s Jane Kramer brings her readers the astonishing news that “you will not see women in the priesthood anytime soon; or married clergy; or an end to the bans on divorce, abortion, and contraception; or a reprieve for the nuns in trousers who go [...]


Caddell Unloads on ‘Racketeering’ GOP Consultants | Mathew Patrick Leahy

Karl Rove

“When you have the Chief of Staff of the Republican National Committee and the political director of the Romney campaign, and their two companies get $150 million at the end of the campaign for the ‘fantastic’ get-out-the-vote program…some of this borders on RICO [the 1970 Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act] violations,” Caddell told the [...]


Commerzbank, Eric Holder and Too-Big-to-Jail | Jonathan Weil

Bank Bailouts

  The Republicans are the party of the rich and Wall Street?  Think again.  The real truth is about the kleptocracy that is the Democrat party: Dennis Lerner, a former tax director at Commerzbank AG (CBK) in New York, isn’t too big to jail. But the bank he once worked for may well be, along [...]


The Dogma of Multiculturalism | Thomas Sowell

sotomayor-cartoon

Intellectuals who imagine that they are helping racial or ethnic groups that lag behind by redefining their lags out of existence with multicultural rhetoric are in fact leading them into a blind alley. Multiculturalism is a tempting quick fix for groups that lag; it simply pronounces their cultures to be equal with others, or “equally [...]


How Chuck Hagel stalled the president’s agenda | Matthew Continetti

Mad Obama

The president is stuck in a congressional quagmire and no amount of “outside pressure” will get him out. Spring is about to begin. The first 100 days of his second term will end in a little more than a month. Before long baseball will resume, and then the NFL season will begin, and Congress will [...]


Common Core as Trojan Horse | Michelle Malkin

Altering documents

As I noted in last week’s column, the national Common Core student database was funded with Obama stimulus money. Grants also came from the liberal Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (which largely underwrote and promoted the top-down Common Core curricular scheme). A division of the conservative Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. built the database infrastructure. A [...]


Rumblings From the Conservative Street | The American Conservative

Rand Paul

Shortly after Rand Paul’s talking filibuster unexpectedly seized national attention, Bill Kristol came back with his normal comedy routine. The junior senator from Kentucky was dismissed as an emblem of “kookiness” and “fearmongering,” “waxing semihysterical” as a “spokesman for the Code Pink faction of the Republican party.” John McCain and Lindsey Graham were Kristol’s opening act. McCain [...]


On Branding and Self-Ghettoization | Ace of Spades

Stand up and Fight

Actually, I like that idea of a speaking circuit [of sending conservatives out to speak on college campuses]. And specifically of bloggers and “minor players.” Further, you need a group that is not directly linked to any of the Conservative players. Then, it’s not “The College Republicans Hosting [Whomever],” rather it’s “The Open Ideas Society* [...]


Orson Scott Card: Blacklisted for Defending the Family | Moonbattery

PC

Welcome to modern day leftist McCarthyism as practiced on one of Sci Fi’s most respected authors: here’s a price to be paid by countermoonbats with courage enough to stand up for decency and sanity in a culture that is swirling down the toilet. Ask Orson Scott Card. After pro-homosexual activists promoted an online petition demanding [...]


Trouble in the Nanny State | Ann Coulter

Illegitimacy

In honor of the new Pope and the start of CPAC, today’s Conservative Top Ten is devoted to examining the philosophical battles shaping our nation today in the hopes that an honest discussion of issues might lead to a better tomorrow.   Sadly, modern politics, particularly the tactics employed by the left, are designed to polarize [...]


Intellectuals and Race: Part III | Thomas Sowell

race hustlers

One would think that with the first African-American to rise to the presidency, the nation would have seen some progress in our racial dialogue.  Sadly, just the opposite has occurred.  Any objection to the policies of what most honest observers will admit is the most liberal president of modern times is met with charges of [...]


Is American Life Really Slanted in Favor of Women Over Men? | John Hawkins

Women Rule

If it is necessary to reexamine all our pre-conceived and liberal sanctioned beliefs about race that are in tune with the new century and the new reality, it is also essential to do so with the question of the male/female dynamic: It would be hard to argue that, one hundred years ago when women couldn’t [...]


The Perils of Intellectual Apostasy | Paul A. Rahe

Do we believe

In order to have productive national conversations on illegitimacy/poverty, race and sex, we must first be able to freely express our point of view.  Unfortunately, the left, like any other orthodoxy, sees all new information and different ideas as apostasy: When I was an undergraduate at Cornell , then Yale and a graduate student at [...]


Along the Watchtower: Meditating on Bob Dylan and Pope Francis | Jeanette Pryor

All along the watchtower

Apparently, questioning liberal dogma such as Darwinian evolution is enough to get you branded as a heretic in the scientific community.  But, is there actually a contradiction between the physical and the spiritual?  Can one believe in God and still believe in science?  With the ascension of a new Pope, these are important questions we [...]


The Obamas- Arrogant Aristocracy in America | Rusty Humphries

obama-michelle

When your lives are not centered on the spiritual….  When you think you are somehow smarter and “better” than everyone else…  When you believe you are entitled to talk one way and live another…  When your words don’t match your deeds…  Then you can call yourself an Obama: Once upon a time, the common man [...]


America’s New Theocracy | Jeffrey Lord

Calorie Cops Michelle

What is it about the left that makes them so arrogant when they seize power?  What kind of hubris do they have to believe that they know better than you how you should live your life?  Why the incessant need to control?  To Ban?  Until we expose this universal desire on the part of Statists [...]


What if nanny is a thug? | Andrew Napolitano

I am not a dictator

One of the central questions raised the past two weeks is how much power shall the individual surrender to the state.  The great contribution of the Rand Paul/Drone filibuster and the Michael Bloomberg/ Soda Ban was to give the American people an idea of how far some people are willing to go to impose government [...]


How Woodward’s Truths and Sullivan’s Smears Expose Our Corrupt Media | John Nolte

I love O

In order for any constructive intellectual discussion to happen, we must first end the hypocrisy that makes our news media no more than the stenographers of the state. Until the narrative bias is eliminated and both sides given fair hearing, the American people will be denied the full information on which to decide which argument [...]


Transforming Government Through Your Cell Phone | Newt Gingrich

spemainphones

And last, but certainly not least, one of the major initiatives conservatives should push is how to bring a government bureaucracy that was created for a nineteenth century world into the present day.  Whether you are liberal or conservative, those who are truly compassionate want the money that we do spend helping our fellow man [...]
