    A Kauai man was sentenced to one year probation and a $200 fine on May 29, 2014 for letting his 8-year-old son walk one mile home as punishment for getting in trouble at school. I wondered what the progressive courts would do to American parents who would allow their minor children to trek unaccompanied across Mexico, hanging on trains, on buses, walking with a coyote, in order to arrive in a more prosperous country where welfare and economic security would await them through the generosity of a president who decided to nullify the southern border? Social services and progressives don’t...

    I recently had someone accuse me of sounding like an “angry republican,” based simply on the facts that I have researched and written in my articles. As a result, I have decided to write a response to this accusation and set the record straight! Let’s get one thing clear…. I don’t consider myself a republican, a tea partier, an independent or a libertarian. What I do know is that I am NOT a Democrat or a Liberal, I am not a racist or a flat-earther or a bigot or a terrorist, as the President of the United States has described...

    The idea of a Constitution of Opportunity is both refreshing and relevant. For too long, progressives have allowed conservatives to monopolize claims of fealty to our unifying national document. In fact, those who would battle rising economic inequalities to create a robust middle class should insist that it’s they who are most loyal to the Constitution’s core purpose. Broadly shared well-being is essential to the framers’ promise that “We the people” will be the stewards of our government.

    Gov. Bobby Jindal struck a chord around the nation when he voiced the sentiment held by millions: “I can sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American Dream for our children and grandchildren.” What Gov. Jindal did was merely vocalize the serious frustrations of a majority of Americans, namely, that we no longer have a representative government. Our elected officials don’t even pretend to represent us anymore. It’s all a high-stakes game. A scam. A con. Our politicians pat us on the head...

No matter what the regime says, those in power become more prosperous and acquire more power.

Barack Obama, late of a Black Liberation church, protege of Communist Frank Marshall Davis, buyer of real estate from a convicted felon, and community organizer from a political machine as corrupt and ruthless as any in the country, wasn’t going to be Madison’s alter ego. Beyond the gate of political correctness and white guilt, we expected a rough, if not fatal, four years—but no one – and I mean, NO ONE – called this. That it would be this bad, this unmoored, and that, despite a train of scandals, four would become EIGHT abject years,...

    For We the People, Obama’s time in office has thus far been tantamount to a march through hell with the complete deconstruction of America strapped to our backs and with despair and immiseration clinched in our teeth. And for the privilege of being unwilling participants in this death march, Obama believes we should be grateful. Obama has usurped and overrun congressional authority in less time than it took for the Kudzu vine to overrun the South. Some years back I wrote: “Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they...

    Saul Alinsky described in his book, Rules for Radicals, the eight levels of control necessary to create a socialist regime. Healthcare, welfare (food, housing, income), and education must be controlled by the state. Religion must be made irrelevant by removing it from government and schools. Guns must be confiscated in order to create a police state. Create as much poverty as possible. Poor people are easier to control. Explode national debt to unsustainable levels by out of control spending fueled by new and suffocating taxes that create more poverty. Use escalating class warfare rhetoric to fuel the division between “rich”...

    When Congress threw ethanol producers a gigantic bone by expanding the Renewable Fuel Standard through the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 by annually increasing the amount of ethanol that fuel refiners are required to blend into the nation’s gasoline supply, they blithely made the crucial assumption that Americans’ gasoline consumption would continue to increase indefinitely. Thanks to heightened fuel efficiency and slackened driving habits, however, Americans’ demand for gasoline has actually decreased, meaning that refiners would have to blend gasoline with ethanol well above the E10 level that is considered safe for most of the older cars and...

Back in April, Princeton freshman Tal Fortgang punched back twice as hard at one of the latest cliches the left uses to avoid having argument — “Check your privilege,” a disguised form of racism, as the privilege implied is based on skin color.

    Originally published by the The Princeton Tory. There is a phrase that floats around college campuses, Princeton being no exception, that threatens to strike down opinions without regard for their merits, but rather solely on the basis of the person that voiced them. “Check your privilege,” the saying goes, and I have been reprimanded by it several times this year. The phrase, handed down by my moral superiors, descends recklessly, like an Obama-sanctioned drone, and aims laser-like at my pinkish-peach complexion, my maleness, and the nerve I displayed in offering an opinion rooted in a personal Weltanschauung. “Check your privilege,”...

The University of Illinois at Chicago, a dismal and endless slab of concrete that is easily one of the ugliest campuses in America, was the well-known professional home of unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers from 1987 until his retirement in 2010. Until just recently, the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, the semi-prestigious flagship school of the state’s college system, employed James Kilgore, an adjunct instructor of global studies and urban planning, a felon and a former member of the infamous Symbionese Liberation...

But before concluding that all is hopeless, consider a few aspects of the situation.

Republican Mark Callahan, who is running for US Senate in Oregon, was in a candidate review meeting with other colleagues in order for Willamette Week, a publication in Portland, to decide who they would endorse in the upcoming primary. An opponent of his, Republican Joe Rae Perkins, was on speaker phone. There were others in the room but I’m not sure who they were specifically.

He would restrict gun ownership to militia members; ban the death penalty; and allow government to set "reasonable limits" on campaign financing, among other things. But Stevens says he's no radical: "I think every one of my proposals is a moderate proposal," Stevens told ABC's George Stephanopoulos in an interview that aired Sunday on ABC's "This Week." One of Steven's proposals would add five words to the Second Amendment, which would then read: "...the right of the people to keep...

    President Obama was doing his favorite thing this week: talking to crowds of adoring young people who already agree with him while acting like he persuaded them about something. They also seemed to give Obama the impression that he’s a really funny guy. On Wednesday, he told a crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan that he visited a local deli, Zingerman’s. He proceeded to tell a long story about ordering the small Reuben sandwich, which he said was “killer.” That description got a good laugh. Then he explained how he thought the sandwich was too big, so he...

    At 63, Chuck Schumer can still dance—for awhile. But eventually, age or ambition caught up with the New York senator. On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough grilled Schumer over Harry Reid's accusation, uttered on the floor of the Senate, that the Koch brothers are "un-American." For as long as he could, Schumer moonwalked away from Scarborough's question as to whether the Kochs are un-American. As one of Harry Reid's top lieutenants—and a lean and hungry senator who almost surely aspires to take Reid's leadership role when the opportunity arises—Schumer was on the spot. But Scarborough to his credit was relentless,...

    Democrats control the Senate, but instead of bringing up a Democrat-sponsored climate-change bill, a few dozen of them pulled an all-nigher on the Senate floor to draw attention to the issue. It's a clear indication that Democrats don't have the votes -- or the public support -- to pass their own climate-change legislation. And they blame the lack of bipartisanship on billionaire Republican donors and "all that dark money," as one Democrat described it.

Despite the embarrassing history of government-funded green-energy failures, “wealthy environmentalists are pushing Democrats to take bolder positions on climate change”—and global warming, as an issue, provides the impetus for more green-energy spending. The Boston Globe reported on a recent “summit between Washington’s liberal elite and San Francisco’s climate intelligensia” that included “Senate majority leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, six other senators, and … Al Gore.” The Globe points to new efforts by Democrats to “make global warming a central issue during the midterms.”

    I was elated but very suspicious when communism failed suddenly in Eastern Europe in 1989. I suspected that the communist elites had decided to go underground to recoup and gain the trust of the west while attempting to rebuild their ranks. The communists’ economic system of surplus was such a dismal failure that it was necessary to hide for a while. People were starving literally and figuratively for capitalism, economic freedom, personal freedom, religious freedom, and a better life for their families. They had reached the breaking point where suffering would change into revolt. The Romanian military finally turned against...

(AP) — The ship captain being played by Tom Hanks in a Hollywood movie said on Tuesday before a benefit screening near his home that he never felt empathy for the Somali pirates who hijacked his vessel and took him captive four years ago. "That never entered my mind," Richard Phillips said in an interview. "We were always adversaries. I thought it was important to make sure we both knew we were adversaries in that. I thought that was important for me and my survival. There was no Stockholm syndrome."

    I am pro-life. I know that life begins at conception, and destroying that life for any reason is an unspeakable evil. I know that individuals have the right to bear arms to protect themselves from the tyranny of the federal government, criminals, and foreign enemies. I know that free market capitalism is the only way to run an economy, despite the fact that I'm not a millionaire like Chairman Obama's pals, Sarah Jessica Parker and Eva Longoria or a billionaire like Chairman Obama's boss, the evil George $oros. I know that homosexual "marriage" is destructive and wrong. I know that...

This is our third Ramadan as her employers and just like the previous two years, I feel a pit of fear in my stomach, worrying about her health and that of my children as she cares for them while the temperatures soar. I know how this will go. For the remainder of the holy month,...

    PHILADELPHIA, April 12, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The gruesome report of the “house of horrors” abortion clinic run by Kermit Gosnell makes a profound statement about abortion – that it should be legal, according to a number of left-wing media outlets. Media Matters crafted a preemptive response to the Gosnell “tweetfest” today that generated more than 166,800 tweets in 12 hours. The liberal organization wrote that Gosnell's Women's Medical Society stands as "an indictment of the outcome if the anti-choice movement achieves its goals.” “Far from the practices of well-established medical facilities, the Women’s Medical Society was the modern-day back alley,...
