Bait, Hate & Switch

A.J. Castellitto

Less than a few prominent and influential organizations have been working very diligently to advance their power of persuasion. Most notable are SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) and RWW (RightWingWatch). Sure, they expose some legitimate hate groups, but lately it's been difficult to separate the haters from the baiters.

Republicans Wimping-Out On Repeal Of Obamacare?

JD Longstreet

Obamacare has not even begun to affect your life yet. The law is so large, so intrusive in your private life that you are just not going to believe the depth of government meddling that attends Obamacare. It has yet begun -- but it's coming, I assure you. And now the GOP is backing away from a total repeal of Obamacare.

Free Speech, Under the Homosexual Boot

Bob Ellis

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality and Canadian pro-family activist Bill Whatcott were recently arrested in Regina, Saskatchewan for telling the truth about homosexual behavior and abortion.

Food Stamps for Cash

Robert Romano

Perhaps the foolish ones are those who keep working. As it turns out, many federal and state-based welfare programs, including the federally funded $17.3 billion a year Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), legally allow for cash withdrawals from ATMs and cash back options at grocery stores and elsewhere.

Alice in Wonderland in Nevada

Michael Peroutka

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in a rather scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice (remember Alice in Wonderland), “whether you can make words mean different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “who is to be master – that is all.” Perhaps Alice can give us some insight into what the government is doing right now in Bunkerville, Nevada.

Oklahoma House Speaker T.W. Shannon being sworn in, January 8, 2013

T.W. Shannon: Rising Black Republican Star

Star Parker

Oklahoma House Speaker T.W. Shannon is used to establishing milestones. Became the first black Speaker of the Oklahoma House, and at the age of 34, became Oklahoma's youngest Speaker in history. Now T.W. Shannon is making new headlines. He has stepped down from his position as House speaker to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Oklahoma Republican Senator Tom Coburn. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex) has just joined Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), Dr. Ben Carson and Sarah Palin in endorsing Shannon.

Who Does This Guy Think He is Kidding?

Bradlee Dean

The battle for gun control laws attempts to set emotion and passion against logic and reason. History shows that when these two contest against one another (that is why they are using moms), logic often loses. So, as long as the American people accept the rhetoric of the Bloombergs of the world, you can expect more meaningless and harmful gun legislation until, at length, America is disarmed.

War is Coming!

JD Longstreet

The Ukraine is effectively gone. The moment Russian forces set foot in the Baltic States they will face resistance from NATO troops. The US will be committed -- as an attack on ANY NATO member is considered an attack upon all NATO members.

Mark Levin’s ‘Liberty’ Amendments: Legalizing Tyranny

Publius Huldah

For 100 years, the federal government has usurped powers not delegated to it in our Constitution. What should we do about it? Should we reclaim our existing Constitution and put an end to the usurpations? Or should we “modernize” the Constitution by delegating to the federal government the powers it has usurped – so as to legalize what is now unconstitutional?

Is Praying in Jesus’ Name Revolutionary?

Michael Peroutka

Carroll County (Maryland) Commissioner Robin Frazier opened up last Thursday morning’s Board of Commissioners budget meeting with a prayer containing references to Jesus Christ. This is, of course, a perfectly normal and appropriate and legal thing to do. When Commissioner Frazier offered the prayer she was telling the truth and following the law.

The Constitution is Not a Self-Enforcing Document

Michael Peroutka

Although the Constitution is the supreme law of our land and provides limits on the powers and authorities of our federal, state and local governments, its words cannot and will not leap off the page and enforce themselves. The common folk of America must be the champions of their own liberty.

"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
