A Progressive Perverts the Commerce Clause; but O’Reilly Gets it Right!

Publius Huldah

Bill O’Reilly (Fox News) made our Framers proud when, on March 26, 2012, he correctly explained [probably for the first time ever on TV] the genuine meaning of the interstate commerce clause. O’Reilly’s guest was Big Government Progressive Caroline Fredrickson, Esq., of the inaptly named “American Constitution Society”. In trying to defend Obamacare, she said that our Framers intended to grant to Congress extensive powers over the “national economy”--even though founding documents clearly contradict her.

Where Does the Supreme Court Get Its Power?

Dr. Robert R. Owens

This past week, the eyes of everyone concerned with the continuance of limited government were riveted on the Supreme Court. This is the first time that a majority of the States have combined to protest an act of Congress. In the face of the ever expanding power of the central government often the Supreme Court appears to be our last line of defense. But where does the Supreme Court get its power?

No matter who wins...

The Cold, Hard Truth About Congressional ‘Republicans’

Bob Ellis

I received this email from Erick Erickson of RedState this morning (you can read it online at RedState here). And I could not possibly agree with it more. If you are under any illusions that America will be protected now that the "Republican" Party is in control of congress...you'd better open your eyes REAL fast, or you're in for a rude awakening in short order.

Rick Manning

In an unheard appeal for calm in the wake of a Grand Jury’s decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in what was determined to be a justifiable shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., President Barack Obama urged that we learn lessons from the tragedy. But what lessons will be learned?

Some True Thanksgiving

Bob Ellis

As Godless liberalism has gained ascendancy in America and our heritage has been whitewashed, many Americans don't know some important facts about our nation's Christian history. Ben Shapiro at the Revolting Truth shares some important history about Thanksgiving--so important, there wouldn't have BEEN a first Thanksgiving without these truths.

Liberty Versus Comfort

Ken Connor

For decades, liberal society has been obsessed with multiculturalism and tolerance. Generations of children have been raised to believe that it's good to accept everyone, celebrate differences, avoid value judgments, and affirm "authenticity" in all its forms. "I may not agree with what you say, but I'll die defending your right to say it" has been the credo of liberal societies the world over. In recent years, however, the notion of what it means to be "tolerant" has changed radically. Now, instead of merely tolerating my neighbor's differences, I must refrain from saying, doing, or even thinking anything that threatens my neighbor's ideology or makes him/her feel "uncomfortable."

"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
