Marco Rubio: Immigration Point Man

Posted: January 14, 2013 at 11:30 am   /   Politics

Marco Rubio, the dynamic freshman senator from Florida, is about to make the biggest wager of his very young political career. He is prepared to bet his own political future on immigration reform, perhaps the most contentious domestic issue of the next two years. Rubio’s headlong plunge into the immigration issue may be a profile […]

Teachers Union President: Behead the Wealthy

Posted: January 9, 2013 at 2:15 pm   /   Politics

Some might think that the references I occasionally make to the French Revolution—and the left’s ideological provenance therefrom—are overwrought. (In fact, I made a couple of such references earlier today.) First of all, from the standpoint of political history and political philosophy, they’re not overwrought, they’re accurate. But occasionally, the left will let the mask […]

Josh Boston takes on Piers Morgan (and does well, but misses an opportunity)

Posted: January 9, 2013 at 9:45 am   /   Politics, Videos

A couple of quick points and then straight to the video. 1) It seems likely that Morgan was respectful ONLY because Boston served in the military. Most people on the left have finally figured out that spitting in soldiers’ faces and calling them baby-killers is bad PR, so they bite their tongues. And maybe, in […]

Should Republicans start acting like Obama?

Posted: January 9, 2013 at 6:15 am   /   Politics

Marc Thiessen asks a salient question in Monday’s Washington Post: I wish more Republicans were like Barack Obama. Really. Give the president his due: he fights for what he believes in. In his first year in office, Obama faced a popular backlash against his stimulus spending bill and saw a Republican elected to Ted Kennedy’s Senate […]

George Will: Liberalism’s decline began with cliff deal. Do you agree?

Posted: January 8, 2013 at 9:18 am   /   Politics

First, watch: Will makes two arguments here. The first is that the left has essentially conceded on the tax argument. Democrats voted in overwhelming numbers to lock in the Bush-era tax rates for 99.5% of taxpayers permanently (or at least as permanent as anything can get in DC). Yes, there was a lot of garbage […]

Do we hate our children?

Posted: January 3, 2013 at 9:45 am   /   Politics

It certainly seems like we do? After all, we have, for decades, been engaged in a program of systematic theft from them. In the previous post, we showed a visual demonstrating the absurdity of our current national discussion. Through an ongoing public sleight of hand, the right’s focus on low taxes and the left’s focus on […]

Reason for freedom lovers to be optimistic

Posted: December 29, 2012 at 4:30 pm   /   Politics

In Rome, America, and the Collapse of the Welfare State, I wrote the following: I am going to go out on a limb here and predict now that humankind is about to go through another such sea change: The Collapse of the Welfare State. All the signs are there, from Greece to Portugal to Ireland to […]

Shatner calmly takes Behar to school

Posted: December 27, 2012 at 2:00 pm   /   Politics

Joy Behar is an extremely unpleasant individual. Not only are her politics terrible, and deeply hypocritical, but she does not appear to be a very nice person. (Of course, since people on the left has convince themselves that they are on the side of the angels in the macro sense, it’s not really necessary for […]

Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to sing Kwanzaa songs

Posted: December 22, 2012 at 4:10 am   /   Politics

As conservatives and libertarians, the cultural deck is stacked against us. The left enjoys the informational equivalent of air superiority in the media, entertainment, and our schools. Everything we hear, see, and read is suffused with left-leaning information, arguments, and cultural messages. It is constant and inescapable—the very air is redolent with it. In so […]
