ObamaCare turns five this week, but not many Americans are celebrating. The President promised his health care overhaul would lower costs and improve access to care. Instead, all we’ve seen are rising premiums, canceled plans, and a failed website with a $1.7 billion price tag.

To commemorate the 5-year anniversary of ObamaCare being signed into law, the House Republican Conference is sharing five stories every day for five days. Submitted to us via, these stories come from Americans in all …

Hillary Clinton’s criminality and corruption are even worse than you think, and they may—if the law of this country is actually upheld—be her undoing.

The dark secret of the left is that everything they espouse is wrong, and everything they implement ultimately fails.

The even darker secret is that sometimes, when you look at their history or a policy they espouse, you find racist or even eliminationism, implementation of policies undergirded by the vilest motivations, and sympathy for some of the worst characters and movements in human history. The progressive love of eugenics, their fondness for Mussolini, their support of the brutal and oppressive Soviet leaders, …

Take a look at this chart:


It seems to indicate that major spikes in the homicide rate correlate with major increases in gun control, and that drops in the rate correlate with relaxations of laws restricting gun ownership. But is it true? Is correlation actually causation?

When you list the bluest of blue states, which ones come to mind? California, New York, Massachusetts, and Illinois are at the top of the list. And lo and behold, people (and their money) are bailing out of these states and moving to red states. In fact, with a small number of exceptions most blue states are losing population and wealth to most red states.

I think I am going to start referring to Hannan as the “James Bond of Liberty” or something like that. He’s brilliant, charming, well-spoken, and absolutely fearless in his devotion to freedom and the value of individual human rights, made relevant in the modern world by the culture and institutions produced by the English-speaking peoples.
