This YAF video shows young Americans blissfully ignorant of the 9-11 Anniversary AND the brutal murder of 2 American journalists. Why? We're not teaching our kids to care about what's going on in the world at a young age. Stop protecting. Start teaching.Read More
There's a good chance, if Obama and his desperate White House political team continue to fan the flames of impeachment, they might have a bonafide conflagration on their hands just a few more executive orders down the road.Read More
Democrats are trying desperately to distance themselves from the President especially in places like West Virginia. Democratic Senate candidate, and Obama supporter, Natalie Tennant, put out an ad where she actually simulates shutting off the lights at the White House to tell Obama: Stop messing with coal.Read More
My latest from the Washington Times:
Think the “War on Women” meme is passe? Run its course? Think again.
“Turn on a TV in Colorado and you might assume there are no issues more important to state voters than abortion rights, access to contraception and the definition of personhood.” That according to an article about the contentious U.S. Senate race there in Real Clear Politics this week.
If it strikes one as odd that a Colorado race, or any of the many U.S. congressional races where it is happening, would be obsessing over “women’s health” issues, given the abundance of crises facing our nation at the moment, Katie Pavlich can explain the conundrum. She does so with clarity, passion and an overwhelming abundance of evidence in her hard-hitting new book, “Assault and Flattery: The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women.”
The author writes, “The playbook [for the 2014 elections] is simple. War on women. Birth control. Republicans better be ready to counter it …”
Making this wake-up call all the more urgent: The GOP establishment’s apparent readiness to blow it again. Case in point: an original interview the author conducted in 2013 with the epitome of the establishment himself, Mitt Romney. To the question of how he could have handled the War on Women attacks more effectively, Mr. Romney responded, “Well, there are a lot of outrageous lies I just don’t think women believe, so I’m not sure how damaging they are.”
After the draft of of proposed cease fire agreement was leaked (interesting in itself), Israeli news media responded with withering attacks on Kerry. The US State Department jumped at the chance to condemn Israel for those attacks, even though the attacks on Kerry came from the media--not the Israeli government.Read More
These courageous ministers have every right to be outraged. Not only at having been mislead by a man running for office, but by being dismissed by national and state media outlets with no consideration of the underlying facts whatsoever.Read More
Even though they know full well that these characters will resume their merciless assault on all who disagree with their grotesque world view, the Democrats are on the same page when it comes to closing down Gitmo by releasing some of the most dangerous people in the world.Read More
Our Founders knew that renegade public officials, intentionally bypassing the proper limits on their authority, endanger our republican form of government. Mr. McAuliffe and Mr. Herring, by ignoring the will of the people as expressed by their direct vote (as in the constitutional amendment on marriage) or through their representatives, are doing just that. Going rogue and replacing the people’s wisdom with their personal political agendas. That’s just not how it’s done — not in Virginia, and not in America.Read More
Monica Wehby blows all other ads away with this tender, compassionate testimonial. This Republican Senate candidate will capture the attention of women, not just in Oregon, but across the country. And she'll make it much tougher for the Democrats to peddle the War on Women scare tactic.Read More
While Obama is hanging out Between Two Ferns, David Cameron stays focused on the enormous implications of turning a blind eye as one nation tramples another.Read More
One in 6 young people smoke marijuana chronically. The chronic use of marijuana obliterates ambition and leads to potential psychosis--all sorts of mood disorders.Read More
In the face of economic uncertainty and malaise, "climate change" has a rather hollow ring to it. That's why so few Americans are stressing over it compared to their fear over keeping their jobs and making ends meet in economic hard times.Read More
The fact that Republican Women's Clubs aren't out there leading the charge against the War on Women lies, and are actually questioning the dedication of their own candidates toward their gender says the strategic decision to remain silent in the face of vicious, baseless Democrat attacks is having disastrous consequences.Read More
Well, no one does it better than Sarah Palin. She called out Democrats for "demeaning women" and treating them like cheap dates with the fictional War on Women, while giving good swift kick in the pants to Republicans. She said they need to start articulating the values of true liberation espoused by their party: independence, a strong work ethic, family, faith and freedom. "If the boys are not up to the challenge, conservative women are happy to lead the charge." Tony Lee at Breitbart.com gives the best recap of the speech I've seen, so check it out: Palin Slams Liberals for Treating Women Like Cheap Dates.
We conservatives are getting creamed with this War on Women lie and yet we sit back waiting for the Left to get tired or ashamed of bashing us over the head with it. As long as it's working for them, they're not going to stop. And trust me: it's working. It's high time we fight back.Read More
This--the economic implosion--is what happens when government sticks its nose in and tries to meddle around to achieve a particular, redistributive outcome. It wasn't a little blip. It was a catastrophe.Read More
The "War on Christmas" is an utter absurdity, championed by those who claim we are somehow an atheistic nation and that any display of faith surrounding a faith-based holiday, in a faith-based nation is a violation of their Constitutional rights.Read More
We live in the freest, most prosperous and generous nation on earth, but only because of the warriors willing to fight and die to protect the blessings we claimed over two hundred years ago. Today, and I hope every day, I won't take the gift of being an American for granted.Read More
Is anyone else bothered by the seemingly constant emphasis on subsidies as the cure-all for unaffordable insurance plans individuals are being required to buy? While far fewer than they're suggesting will actually qualify for the subsidies, it seems rather unsettling, to say the least, that the government is trying to push so many into a form of dependency. I find it galling. The government is not just making people aware of this option, we're pretty much forcing them to enter the cycle of dependency. You MUST have health care. If you cannot afford it, come to us. we will help you. Yes. The nine most terrifying words in the English language: "I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
This is not an inconsequential moment in our nation's history. Not only are we watching the government take over one-sixth of the economy, but we about to witness as a portion of free Americans--many of them young, filled with ambition, hopes and dreams--submit themselves and their future to the will of the state.
