Liberals and magical thinking

We all know that children think magically, and naturally inhabit a world of fantasy and imagination. It's the perfect place to be when you're a kid. The problem is, adults on the left seem to have decided they deserve to live in that same magical world, where facts and logic and reason just don't exist. Published April 27, 2015

Saving Social Security on the backs of taxpayers

When politicians insist on "reforming" some program they mismanaged and destroyed, they always turn to the average American and begin explaining the "sacrifice" we have to make in order to save it. Published April 20, 2015

Blessed are the pizza proprietors who are reviled for their faith

For Christians and Jews last week, Holy Week was filled with reminders why their religious freedom is so important. All Americans should be shocked not just at what is happening to Christians abroad, but also by the increasing intolerance here at home for people of faith. Published April 6, 2015

Lifting the covers on ‘Obamoogle’

During this past week as we've been swamped with bad news pouring out of every corner of the globe, it wouldn't be surprising if you missed one of the more shocking revelations about White House actions that would make even Richard Nixon blush. Published March 30, 2015

American stalker

In 1983, the No. 1 song of the year was "Every Breath You Take" by the rock band The Police, written by their lead singer Sting. At the time, many people thought the song was about a stalker, and we were right. Sting has since noted, "I didn't realize at the time how sinister it is. I think I was thinking of Big Brother, surveillance and control." Published March 23, 2015

Saying ‘so long’ to the First Amendment

Two weeks after the Federal Communications Commission voted to regulate the Internet as a utility, the masters of the universe at the FCC, three unelected Democrats, are finally allowing Americans to see the actual order on exactly how they intend to ruin one of the major free speech and free market successes in the world.

A preference for the Muslim faith

Over the years it's been disturbing to see an increased effort by the federal government to punish and marginalize Christianity. After all, we know the separation of church and state is meant to keep the federal government from establishing an official state religion; it's not about eliminating faith from the public square. And yet if you were to look at federal actions since Barack Obama became president, there is a certain trend of promoting and embracing one religion (Islam) while punishing and marginalizing another (Christianity).

CPAC, freedom and saving the country

Attendees of last week's Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC), the nation's largest conference for conservatives, heard a few tried and true conservative messages from potential presidential candidates and activists alike — calls for lower taxes, more freedom for business, a strong national defense, the importance of killing the enemy and the need for a serious foreign policy. Published March 2, 2015

FCC, FEC look to ruin the Internet

We knew this was coming. Within the last couple of weeks, both the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Election Commission declared their intention to regulate the Internet. Fascists always explain their actions as efforts to either make something more efficient, "fair," or to supposedly "protect" their target. Sometimes they simply lie, like saying they're nationalizing health insurance to make it more affordable and to increase access to health care. Published February 16, 2015

Obama’s myopic crusade

Every week President Obama delivers some new experience that makes me wonder how the entire nation got dropped down Alice's rabbit hole all at once. Yet, in these first few weeks of Mr. Obama's last two years in office, he's made sure the United States won't turn into a collective Sally Field, exclaiming, "You like us! You really, really, like us!" Because, simply, he really, really, doesn't. Published February 9, 2015

What Julianne Moore’s rejection of God really means

Actress Julianne Moore's declaration last week to The Hollywood Reporter magazine that she doesn't believe in God is making some news and getting her roundly condemned on social media by many who purport to be people of faith. Published February 2, 2015

Payback from the IRS

The Internal Revenue Service's woes did not begin or end with Lois Lerner and the agency's targeting of political opponents with punitive action. Earlier this month we became painfully aware (again) that political games and punishing the taxpayer appear to be the burgeoning raison d'etre of the tax-collecting agency.

Terror undeterred by mass surveillance

The failure of the massive surveillance state established by liberal western governments is becoming more and more apparent. One such failure was accidentally confirmed by both Sen. Dianne Feinstein and House Speaker John Boehner in just the last week. Published January 19, 2015

Saying no to terror as the new normal

As the world continues to reel from the horror of Islamist terrorism in France, one common refrain from commentators and “experts” is that this is now the new normal, that we must be prepared to deal with so-called lone-wolf terrorism for decades. Published January 12, 2015

Maureen Dowd's self-destruction

The now-consumed 2014 has been perfectly described by some commentators as the year when facts died. Published January 5, 2015

Hillary Clinton’s jaded sense of justice

The Benghazi massacre most certainly deserves to be a subject Hillary Rodham Clinton should be held accountable for and never allowed to forget. Yet there is another, even more recklessly dangerous thing that will affect Mrs. Clinton's designs on the White House: her attitude in general toward America's enemies. Published December 22, 2014

Another Obamacare blow to personal privacy

Get ready to fight back: Last week, the Health and Human Services Department announced a plan to share your medical records with over 35 federal agencies — all in the name of "health care," of course. All in the name of "efficiency," the favorite excuse used by fascists wherever they appear. Published December 15, 2014
