We must not allow our desire to be decent and well-mannered people to overwhelm the substance of our principles or our determination to fight for their success. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, American Enterprise Institute speech, Feb 16, 2001

ObamaCare: Quarter-Million Virginians Losing Health Coverage

Tom Toth

250,000 Virginians will see their health insurance canceled before the year’s end due to Obamacare fallout. Explaining why people are losing their health coverage because of the law you created is hardly the closing argument any incumbent wants to make.

Marxist ‘War on Poverty’ Wastes Trillions

Bob Ellis

Anyone who has been paying attention understands that the U.S. financial situation is beyond out of control. Not only are we over $17 trillion in debt, the latest figures show more than half of Americans are now on the take--via the federal government--from their fellow Americans, and a $22 trillion 'war on poverty' has done exactly zip to reduce poverty.

Should Christians Be Politically Active?

Gina Miller

Are some correct in their claim that Christians should not be politically active? This is a question with which many Christians have struggled, due to the lack of overt New Testament admonitions to do so. Yet how many Christians throughout history, inspired by the fire of God’s Word in their spirits, have stood firmly against evil actions by civil governments? Were they wrong?

‘Blessings of Liberty?’ Will I Despair or Will I Declare?

Michael Peroutka

There is a right way to think about and a right way to do something about the mess that American has become. We cannot and should not despair. Rather, we should decide and declare our commitment to live liberty and to pass on the Blessings of Liberty to our posterity.

War with ISIS: Don’t Touch the Mountain

David Whitney

We were told last week that the greatest threat to our well being today is some new Mohamedean group ISIS who is ravaging the Middle East. We have also been advised that the best security is for us to go to war against this new threat. So last Wednesday the imposter essentially declared war against ISIS.

Social Issues, Geraldo Rivera and Glenn Beck

A.J. Castellitto

I take my convictions wherever I go. I can't just pretend the truth, that I know to be universal, is 'all relative.' Silence is consent and affirmative votes confirmation. A true Christian loves his/her fellow man with a saving love that transcends natural propensities.

ObamaCare Prototype Flops

Bob Ellis

Yes, we already knew RomneyCare was, as all government health care schemes always are, a complete boondoggle that made health care worse in the state of Massachusetts. Now I learn that the RomneyCare health care exchange (and website) have turned out to be complete flops, and are being abandoned...to push everyone onto ObamaCare.

Taxpayer-Funded Illegal Alien Transportation Service

Bob Ellis

To say that the illegal immigration problem (as well as a lot of other problems) in our country has reached complete insanity levels...is an understatement.

Is an Islamic Organization Islamic?

Bob Ellis

Is the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) "Islamic"? Well, getting beyond the "DUH!" concerning an organization whose name begins with "ISLAMIC," Andrew Klavan and the Revolting Truth examine this perplexing (for some, like our president, at least) question.

The Real Problem With The NFL

Dave Daubenmire

Go ahead and put on your flack jacket and your helmet. I’m a straight shooter and I am about to shoot. I make no apologies, and I offer no qualifiers for what I am about to say. Today, my target for truth is the NFL...or rather their reaction to “public pressure” put on them by the gaggle of non-thinking leftists that make up the “media”.

The Press for Assisted Suicide

Ken Connor

Since law tends to be a reflection of culture, it is incumbent upon policy makers to understand the implications of embracing the "right to die" movement wholesale. They will also do well to remember that the idea that there are some lives "not worth living" undergirded Adolph Hitler's Aryan-supremacy world view. His policy of eliminating the "unworthy" began with the mentally handicapped and physically disabled but spread to millions of Jews.

How Did the SD GOP become Pro-Choice, Pro-ObamaCare, and Pro-Common Core?

Guest Author

On a Christian radio program today it told of a much-loved pastor who had a sexual affair that almost ruined his ministry and his church. He recovered by confessing the affair; going to his church to ask forgiveness; and subjecting himself to his parishioner's scrutiny. One couple asked, "How did this happen?" He answered, "I just made small concessions, just a few minor excuses at a time."

George Washington Condemns the Modern GOP

Bob Ellis

As I was reading and reflecting on George Washington's Farewell Address of 1796 today, it hit me like a soft ton of bricks how prescient President Washington was some 218 years ago. He warned against and soundly condemned the behavior that has unfortunately become the very heart and soul of the "Republican" agenda today.

Bob Ellis

David North at the Center for Immigration Studies has a new article on the South Dakota EB-5 scandal, and $120 million in EB-5 funds that are missing. CIS, as their name implies, is concerned with immigration into America, and as a part of that, they have been looking into the scandal surrounding EB-5 in South Dakota for some time now.

The Continuing Blunder of Retreat

Victor Sharpe

If Israel was forced to commit national suicide by abandoning its historic, spiritual and strategic territory - in what the world prefers to call by its Jordanian occupation name, the West Bank - and exist in a narrow waist of land, a mere nine to 15 miles wide, it would not take long for the Palestinians and the Islamo-Nazis to finish it off.

To Cross Israel’s Rubicon

Victor Sharpe

A great alliance exists between two peoples who share principles of democracy, the rule of law, freedom of religion and speech, and human rights. That alliance and friendship between the American and Israeli people largely remains, exemplified by the support of Congress, despite the policies of the current administration.

Approaching Constitution Day, An Unbearable and Choking Hell

John W. Whitehead

Ironically, just a short week after the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we find ourselves commemorating the 227th anniversary of the ratification of our Constitution. Yet while there is much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there has been little to celebrate.

The 17th Amendment: The Irrelevant States

Tom Toth

Elections to decide who will control Congressional majorities in the House and Senate are less than seven weeks away, and this calm before the political storm is as good a time as any to analyze the state our government’s most powerful branch—the people’s Congress. Specifically, why exactly do we have two chambers that are elected the same way, with one being less accountable to the people and yet more powerful than the other?

The Tyranny of Democracy

Michael Peroutka

Does it drive you crazy when you hear politicians and talking heads refer to America as a “democracy”? If it does, I sympathize with you. And so do the founders. What didJames Madison, our fourth President and the man they call the “Father of the Constitution,” say about democracies?

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
