RNC Punishes the National Review for Attacking Donald Trump

You have probably heard of The National Review’s issue devoted to attacking Donald Trump. Even if you are in favor of attacking Trump, the National Review has a history of attacking Patrick Buchanan, Ron Paul, and others. And we all know they would have happily ordered us to support Jeb Bush. The Republican National Committee has “disinvited” the National Review from the next debate.  Politico reports, National Review agreed to partner with NBC for the Republican debate scheduled for Read more […]

National Review Comes Out for Homosexual “Marriage”

The managing editor for the National Review has published a long article arguing for same sex “marriage.” I should have known that, with the onset of real persecution and the use of civil rights legislation against Christians, the National Review would not hesitate to jump ship and try to redefine conservatism as pro-same-sex “marriage.” Jason Steorts writes the sustained attack on natural society: “An Equal Chance at Love: Why We Should Recognize Same-Sex Marriage.” Steorts writes Read more […]

Conservatives Defend the Police: National Review Says the “Love Affair” Should Stop!

Do Conservatives defend the police as an instinctive reaction? A. J. Delgado writes that they should stop: “It’s Time for Conservatives to Stop Defending the Police.” Imagine if I were to tell you there is a large group of government employees, with generous salaries and ridiculously cushy retirement pensions covered by the taxpayer, who enjoy incredible job security and are rarely held accountable even for activities that would almost certainly earn the rest of us prison time. When there Read more […]

Why a Conservative Defending “Common Core” Doesn’t Make Sense

The conservative I have in mind is Bob Riley writing at the National Review website, “Why I support Common Core standards.” The paragraph that, in my opinion, shows fantasyland thinking is this one: To many educators and parents, the goals of Common Core are eminently reasonable, particularly in states that rank below average or far below average in the all-important areas of math and science education. Just stop. Does anyone seriously think that the discrepancy between states is due Read more […]

Is the Tea Party In Trouble For Caring About Social Issues?

Is the Tea Party in trouble because it has departed from economic issues and embraced social issues? That’s what Michael Turner argues at the National Review. I think Turner cites information that should concern us all as we think about strategy and goals, but I also think he’s not considering all the relevant facts. Ultimately, his story is false. While he tells a tale of the Tea Party drifting from its core principles, it is actually Leftists who changed their strategy and started using Read more […]

Ron Johnson, Republican Senator Traitor On Obamacare?

Now that Obamacare is super failing, and we have a majority who want it rolled back and repealed, the pressure is on the Republicans who were playing along with the conservatives to suddenly pull back and try to save another big government usurpation of the American economy and the people. There really can be no other explanation. If people were willing to vote for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and were willing to vote in favor of the government shut down, then why would the possibly change Read more […]

The True Radicals in America

A recent article written by Kevin D. Williamson for National Review makes a very bold assertion. In his first sentence, Williamson states that there is only one “authentically radical social movement of any real significance in the United States,” and that this radical movement is homeschooling. Williamson well understands the cultural and social significance of homeschooling, and that it runs much deeper than simply being about education. He writes: “Homeschoolers pose an intellectual, moral, Read more […]
