The Constitution means what the delegates of the Philadelphia Convention and of the state ratifying conventions understood it to mean; not what we judges think it should mean. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, American Enterprise Institute speech, Feb 16, 2001

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 Dark Side of Humanity

A.J. Castellitto

Corruption, pride, control, deceit, dishonesty, etc., has permeated throughout Washington and Wall Street/Corporate America for many decades. Government, in particular, has steadily become a monster of man’s design, and it’s turning on us. Government cannot be trusted. The media cannot be trusted. Too many corporations cannot be trusted (to do right by their consumers and employees).

Americans’ Ignorance Enables White House Criminality

Bradlee Dean

The American people and their representatives are guilty of dereliction of duty when it comes to the failure to impeachment the criminal in office, Barack Hussein Obama, as well as this criminal administration. America is adding strength to tyranny by giving permission to destroy for yet another two years.

Canada Becoming More ‘American’ Than America

Bob Ellis

I have often remarked in recent years that the American people now blissfully put up with far, far, FAR more taxation and oppression than we rebelled over in 1776. Frankly, we owe King George an apology.

Thinking Reasonably Part 3

Dale Pflug

Collectivism is defined as the practice or principle of giving a group (the collective) priority over individual members. Individualism is belief in the primary importance of the individual and in the virtues of self-reliance and personal independence for society to succeed. The terms social justice, fairness and equal rights are also a part of collectivism. Collectivism believes that society is some type of super-organism that exists over and above the individual members and must be considered the primary unit of reality and standard of value.

Reality or Make-Believe: ‘Civil Rights’ in Ferguson

Michael Peroutka

Despite man’s attempt to defy gravity, it is immutable. Obviously, we can see clearly that the law of gravity, one of the physical laws of the universe, is not within our power to ignore or to repeal. We really can’t break it without getting broken by it.

Justice the Guardian of Liberty

David Whitney

There is a monster loose in America. It is a tyrannical monster whose perfidy grows every day. He is intelligent, educated at the most elite institutions and is holding some of the most powerful and prestigious positions in our land. He’s at his worst when all decked out in black. In the past month alone by means of its multitude of tentacles this monster has conducted a coordinated attack on the most ancient and most valuable of human institution, the one that pre-dates everything short of the first six days of creation.

Why I Insist on Shaking Sleeping Americans Awake

Bradlee Dean

It seems as if no matter how many times one tries to wake the American people up to who are conspiring against us, there are always going to be some people who will take a step back – namely, the cowards who walk contrary to their own professed beliefs. Conservatives today do not want to stand up for the truth they profess to hold on to. They love their freedom so much that they are not willing to fight for it.

America in 2039: What if Revival Doesn’t Happen?

Steve Deace

Beyond the obvious technological advancements that have mostly benefited our lives, many of the issues we are currently wrestling with as a people weren’t even conceivable in 1989. Given that trend line, and the fact we are domestically debating unprecedented existential threats to individual liberty, the next 25 years could become American Exceptionalism’s tipping point moment barring revival.

Patriotism: Something to Think About

Ricki Pepin

Most Americans today would call themselves patriots. Would you? But what does that mean…to be an American…to be a patriot? What is the basis for your self-description as a patriotic American? This is something to think about!

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.

"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
