Stephen Moore: Virginia outperforms high-tax Maryland

Posted: September 12, 2012 at 9:00 am   /   Elections, Politics

Two of the most high-profile governors in the U.S. preside over the affairs of the states immediately adjacent to the nation’s capital. One of them, Martin O’Malley, is the governor of Maryland, and frequently mentioned as a possible presidential candidate for 2016.  He has governed as a strict disciple of the Obama spending philosophy, and […]

Gingrich vs Friedman Smackdown on Abortion Rights Extremism

Posted: September 4, 2012 at 7:45 am   /   Elections, Politics, Videos

In this two-minute video excerpt from the Sept 2, 2012 edition of Meet the Press, Newt Gingrich staggers Tom Friedman, one the high priests of the Left’s intelligentsia.  Newt does so with two quick jabs, despite David Gregory’s attempt to run interference for Friedman.  The annotations in the video were added by me. Newt Gingrich […]

Are the Democrats Sensing Defeat? Ask Chris Matthews.

Posted: September 2, 2012 at 4:50 am   /   Elections, Politics

Are any of you Conservative news junkies sensing what I’m sensing? Namely — It seems the Leftist media are finally sensing defeat in November.  And I mean really sensing it. The willful self-deception that they’ve cultivated for so long is crumbling.  Their messiah is false.  He’s failed.  And rather miserably at that.  And he may […]

Climate Change as a Tool for Social Control

Posted: September 1, 2012 at 5:00 pm   /   Politics

Typically my posts here look mostly at the nutty things the left says in promoting their environmental causes. From Bill McKibben’s views on hyper-local, communal-yet-militarized economies to Naomi Klein’s brand of eco-socialism and from Andrew Kimbrell’s ‘wild law’ to Pentti Linkola’s views on population reduction, the left is full of radical ideas to transform society.

RNC Day 3: The rest of the speeches

Posted: August 31, 2012 at 11:00 am   /   Elections, Politics

Whether the United States of America can avoid the Stockholm Syndrome that Obama is hoping we will suffer from on Election Day remains to be seen, but this convention did just what it needed to. It introduced and humanized Mitt Romney, and it showcased the ideals of free enterprise, limited government, free people, and individual responsibility […]

Bill Whittle: Why the Paul Ryan Nomination Is a Very Big Thing

Posted: August 30, 2012 at 4:30 pm   /   Elections, Politics, Videos

Schweikert and Quayle: Why couldn’t they both win?

Posted: August 29, 2012 at 1:01 pm   /   Arizona, Elections, Politics

I am a big fan of BOTH Ben Quayle and David Schweikert. Yes, the campaign got fairly nasty, and that was disappointing. But both of these men are excellent congressmen. David Schweikert is an amazing numbers guy; his grasp of the true natureof our fiscal situation is almost unmatched in Congress. He’s a freshman, and […]
