Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ But conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’ And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right. — Martin Luther King Jr.

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?

GOP Leadership: Afraid of Its Own Shadow

Bob Ellis

Erick Erickson at RedState points out some interesting truths about the political situation in 2014, especially when compared to that of 1998. Some (including Byron York) are wringing their hands that (gasp) the GOP might actually make the 2014 midterm election a referendum on President Obama. And of course, since Barack Obama has done so many things worthy of impeachment, the spectre of impeaching President Obama comes up in the conversation also.

What Makes You an American?

Michael Peroutka

Are you an American? If you are, can I ask you a question? In your way of thinking, what makes you an American? Is it where you were born? Is it because of where you presently live? Does a SSN make you an American? Or a passport or driver’s License?

The Bread of Life

David Whitney

The crisis on the border has just begun its planned devastation on our republic. It turns out there is an obscure Obama administration policy that’s deliberately driving this flood of illegal unaccompanied minors. “This policy [and executive order] issued in August of 2013… is called the ‘Family Interest Directive,’ and it essentially forbids Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from deporting, arresting or even detaining any illegal immigrant who is the caretaker of a child.

Baker Sentenced to ‘American’ Reeducation Camp

Bob Ellis

In a stunning blow to religious freedom, Colorado baker Jack Phillips has been sentenced to be "reeducated" along with his staff by a pro-homosexual court. Phillips' crime: he refused to make a cake celebrating counterfeit marriage.

Truth On Our Side?

Guest Author

One of the primary critiques of religion popular among New Atheists and secularists generally is that it is arrogant and close-minded for any group to claim a monopoly on Truth. The idea that a divine creator had a plan and ordered things a certain way, that he (or she, or it) revealed the Truth to an elect group and that all mankind will be judged by how closely they aligned their lives with the Truth... nothing could be more offensive to the secular progressive worldview. On the contrary, secular progressives claim the mantle of open-mindedness and tolerance.

"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
