John Kasich Appeals to Sins of Reagan to Justify Himself

Are all the sins of Reagan now going to be trotted out as precedents for Republican malfeasance? John Kasich is the Republican governor of Ohio and he is running for President. I have no idea why. I have never heard of him before. But he is one of those governors who took the Washington D.C. Obamacare bait and increased funding for Medicaid in his state. The Federal government’s story is that this is free money that can do a lot of good. Of course, the real story is that this is increased debt Read more […]

Forward: The Intentional Limits to Growth

“We believe then and now, there are no limits to growth and human progress when men and women are free to follow their dreams.” – Ronald Reagan Are you still trying to figure out what the President’s campaign slogan, “Forward” means? In 1798, Thomas Malthus’ “An Essay on the First Principles of Population” became the precursor to countless evils and the justification for murdering millions of people. In his essay, Malthus argues as follows: a.  Food is necessary for human Read more […]

Child Porn Allegations & Lamar Alexander’s Chief Of Staff: Will The Real History Of GOP & Homosexuals Ever Be Known?

What two administrations have been associated with a homosexual scandal? Before I answer the question, let me explain what raised it in my mind. The breaking news today is that Lamar Alexander’s Chief of Staff is being included in a Child Porn investigation. Law enforcement agents have searched the home of GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff over allegations of child pornography, according to a statement released by the senator’s office. Ryan Loskarn was removed from his home in Read more […]

Re-creating 9-11 Via Syria

The Independent reports, “Jihadists see Syria insurgency as just the beginning of a Middle East revolution.” Shortly before its operatives killed 14 Iraqi Shia children in a school bombing this month, the group once known as al-Qa’ida in Iraq sent guerrillas into northern Syrian villages with orders to reopen local Sunni classrooms. In a series of early-autumn visits, the militants handed out religious textbooks and backpacks bearing the group’s new name: the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. A Read more […]

Pat Buchanan: Republican Politicians Hate Republican Voters And The Media Applauds

The media/liberal (but I repeat myself) hysteria against the Republicans in Congress who are demanding that Obamacare be delayed a year are being treated as if they were evil. Yet all they are doing is (1) honoring the wishes of the voters who put them into office and (2) ignoring the wishes of Wall Street money or other people who are not in their district. Here we have a situation where, for once, our government is not being completely run by an oligarchy. There are a sizable number of people Read more […]

Bill O’Reilly: The Jack Kevorkian of the Republican Party

So Bill O’Reilly, great defender of folks, is officially on the immigration bandwagon. Hooray! Another conservative bites the dust. Although I guess that’s not accurate. O’Reilly has never described himself as a conservative. I’ll second that. He’s not. But even if he had after coming out in favor of “immigration reform” he could no longer wear that moniker. His claim is that if Republicans don’t line up behind the RINOs (my word, not his) and support the bill, all will be lost and Hillary Clinton Read more […]

Calm Down—Rubio Is Not A RINO

President Obama thanks him for his work on the Senate immigration bill; Senator Chuck Schumer “think[s] the world of him”; but I assure you, ladies and gentlemen, Senator Marco Rubio is not a Democrat. I do believe Rubio needs to resign from Congress, but not because he’s a RINO; only because he was a main sponsor of a bill that, if it became law, would do irreparable damage to conservatism by nearly ensuring no Republican would ever be president again. So it’s time for him to go. But Rubio Read more […]

Fire All the Republican Consultants

Liberals and Republican consultants insist that conservatives must be kinder, gentler, and more compassionate if they are ever to win another national election. In other words, stop being so consistently conservative for we all know conservatives are cold, mean, and heartless. The inside-the-Beltway crowd has been shouting this at Republicans for decades. Our wonderful consultants have been telling candidates and incumbents alike that they must soften, they must move to the center, and learn the Read more […]

Will Texas Become California 2?

Who hasn’t heard the new pro-immigration ads? It seems like they’re playing on every news-radio station, all day, every day. Americans for a Conservative Direction is a lobbying group put together by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who is definitely not a conservative. The southern RINO Haley Barbour is also involved. The ads posit the notion, put forth by Republicans Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan, that the current immigration system is de facto amnesty. They neglect to mention that the current Read more […]

“Common Core”: The ObamaCare of Education

It sends shivers down the spines of freedom loving individuals. It is the Obamacare of education with its national standards and testing and its one-size-fits-all government model. While the implementation of the Common Core curriculum is new, the passion for and the idea of national education has been burning in the hearts of progressives for more than a century. Many people blame George W. Bush for Common Core. After all Common Core is just the natural extension of Bush’s “No Child Left Read more […]

The State Can’t Be Benevolent Because it Doesn’t Have any Money

The Obama administration believes the State — erroneously called “government” — is in the salvation business. The belief is so pervasive that it colors every program proposed by Washington. Sadly, millions of Americans willingly accept the canard that State-initiated directives are the engine of change for all that’s good in society. If history is any indicator, the faith is ill-placed. How many past political regimes that promised salvation instead brought tyranny and oppression? The Read more […]

Is President Obama Liberalism’s Gorbachev?

Angelo Codevilla has spent more than his share of time as a sojourner among America’s ruling class. He was a key part of the Reagan transition and point-man in the Gipper’s efforts to transform both the foreign and the intelligence services. Then later he served as a professor of International Relations at prestigious Boston University. From this vantage point, Codevilla was able to get a close look not only at the international relations elite, but at the entire American ruling class, from which Read more […]
