It is the function of a judge not to make but to declare the law, according to the golden mete-wand of the law and not by the crooked cord of discretion. — Edmund Burke, Preface to Brissot’s Address, 1794

How to Defeat the Left: Understand the Enemy

Bob Ellis

I plan to share a few excerpts from David Horowitz' new book "Take No Prisoners: The Battle Plan for Defeating the Left." over the coming days, in the hopes that Republicans and conservatives might become enlightened--or at least more informed--about the nature of our current conflict, that they will buy a copy of the book, and read it...and then get to work.

Sex Trafficking Is Big Business: Our Dirty Little Secret

John W. Whitehead

It is estimated that there are 100,000 to 150,000 under-aged sex workers in the U.S. The average age of girls who enter into street prostitution is between 12 and 14 years old, with some as young as 9 years old. This doesn’t include those who entered the “trade” as minors and have since come of age. Rarely do these girls enter into prostitution voluntarily. As one rescue organization estimated, an underaged prostitute might be raped by 6,000 men during a five-year period of servitude.This is America’s dirty little secret.

Climate Zealots Play the Race Card

Bill Wilson

You can't argue with global warming zealots: Whatever the thermometer reads, they're right and you're wrong. Whatever the short-term, intermediate or long-term data suggest, all these eco-radicals see is additional proof of their distorted worldview. Hot summers? Mild winters? That's global warming. Mild summers? Frigid winters? That's global warming, too.

Americans concerned about declining influence of religion

Star Parker

Over the last 12 years, the percentage of Americans that think religion is losing influence in American life has increased dramatically. In 2002, 52 percent of those surveyed said religion is losing influence. In 2014, 72 percent of Americans said religion is losing influence. However, while increasing numbers of Americans feel religion is losing influence, most feel this is a bad thing.

Cheapened Christianity and Fraudulent Faith

A.J. Castellitto

I have a bad habit of entertaining things that present themselves as "Christian." Unfortunately, once you get past the label (a mere marketing and recruitment ploy), there is little left in terms of faithful distinction for those things deceptively deemed 'Christian.'

"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
