The Supreme Court Is Not Supreme

Arthur Schaper,  On Friday, the Supreme Court of the United States declared: “I now pronounce same-sex couples free to marry.” In another tortured five-four ruling, authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy (a wavering California Republican who has deliberately placed himself as a swing justice), the court invalidated same-sex marriage bans nationwide, arguing that the Fourteenth Amendment… [Read More]

Michelle Malkin: The Media’s Vile Attacks on Conservative Assimilationists

I have had enough of smug liberal elites wrapped in their “Celebrate Diversity” banners tearing down minority conservatives. Look in the mirror, media and academia bigots. Your own reflexive racism and divisive rhetoric are poisoning public discourse. There’s nothing “progressive” about attacking the children and grandchildren of immigrants who proudly embrace an American identity. We… [Read More]

Bernie Sanders Wants To Tax Americans At 90%. His Reasoning Is Priceless…

Steven Crowder,   Yes, this is a real thing. No, Bernie Sanders didn’t have a public meltdown of epic, Charlie Sheen proportions. This is what he believes. It’s what he’s always believed. Remember this when your leftist friends talk about how “radical” the “far right” has become in this country. Please, remember this. In an interview with NBC… [Read More]

Rise Up for Free Speech!

Bill Murchison,  Columnist and Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers’ new book, “The Silencing: How the Left Is Killing Free Speech,” links her snugly to the cause of unfettered thought and expression — important for conservatives, certainly but also for non-conservatives. As it should be for any American, come to think of it, as the “progressive”… [Read More]

The First Lady and the Race Card

Suzanne Fields, Michelle Obama can give as good as she gets, and she’s getting a hard time from conservatives over two speeches she gave last week. The first was a commencement speech at Tuskegee University in Alabama, and the other was at the opening of the new Whitney Museum of American Art in downtown New… [Read More]

Lethal injection case exposes U.S. top court’s death penalty divide

 Tensions on the Supreme Court over America’s use of the death penalty boiled over on Wednesday as the justices appeared badly split in a case challenging Oklahoma’s lethal injection method as a breach of the Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment. The nine-member court’s five conservatives seemed likely to side with Oklahoma in the… [Read More]

Republican stance on death penalty appears to be shifting

 Nebraska’s Republican-dominated Legislature is making a concerted push to do away with the state’s death penalty, the latest sign of cracks in conservatives’ once-bedrock support for capital punishment. When lawmakers voted 30-13 vote to repeal the state’s death penalty last week, Republicans delivered 17 of the votes in favor of the measure, outnumbering the 13… [Read More]

Jindal: We need to defend religious liberty with public policy

Ed Morrissey,  Dude, he’s running. While other Republicans struggle to deal with the media’s insistence on making RSVP answers to hypothetical wedding invitations a litmus test for the presidency, Bobby Jindal has decided to double down on support for protecting religious scruples in the marketplace. In an essay for the New York Times, which put… [Read More]

If Liberals Are The Good Guys, Why Do They Lie So Much?

John Hawkins, Liberals never argue with one another over substance; their only dispute is how to prevent the public from figuring out what they really believe. Meanwhile, it is a source of constant alarm to conservatives that the public will not understand what they really believe. – Ann Coulter If you listen to liberals, you’d… [Read More]

Ahem, The dream of “Romney 2016″ is alive and well, thanks to … Marco Rubio?

Allahpundit, A few days old, but it’s so rare that I’m right that I need to showcase it. A month ago I argued that Rubio’s best/only shot to gain a foothold among the establishment against Jeb was to (a) show that he’s the strongest candidate in the field among Latinos and (b) become the official… [Read More]

Study: Conservatives say they’re happy, but liberals show it

 Conservatives say they are happier, but liberals show more cheer in smiles, word choice and even emoticon use, claims a new scientific study. Other researchers found fault with the study, which looked at how Democrats and Republicans differ in positive language in speeches entered into the Congressional Record, photos in the congressional directory, tweets by… [Read More]

20 Things Conservatives Want For Americans

John Hawkins,   Conservatives spend a lot of time talking principles, but not as much time as they should telling people what they want to do for the average American. On the other hand, liberals talk incessantly about what conservatives want to do “to” the average American, but almost all of it is wrong. Here’s what… [Read More]
