Ferguson—Michael Brown Got Justice

John Nantz,   Ferguson, Missouri is a litmus test. If you think Michael Brown, who happens to be black, was a victim of police brutality, you’re probably a racist. If you think the Grand Jury should indict officer Darren Wilson, who happens to be white, you’re most likely a racist and/or a Bolsheviki dupe. We all […] Read More →

Politics: Guess who had the worst week in Washington?

Ed Morrissey,  Hey, on the plus side, she won’t have too many more of them. Mary Landrieu started the week desperate to pull off a legislative coup that would convince her increasingly hostile constituents that they need her muscle in the Senate, even though they know now that she’d be in the minority. In theory, […] Read More →

How the Youth Vote Failed Democrats

 Democrats needed a big turnout from 18- to 29-year-olds in this month’s midterm elections. Spoiler alert: It didn’t happen.  But there were some interesting elements to the failure. So before we move on to 2016, here is a quick survey of 18- to 29-year-old voters in 2014. These tidbits rely on — notably fallible — exit […] Read More →

In rare rebuke, Democrats shun Pelosi ally and back rival for committee leadership

Noah Rothman,  Democrats are reportedly fuming over Nancy Pelosi’s decision to deny Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) a proxy vote in House elections for leadership posts and committee assignments.

Are New Ferguson Riots Inevitable?

 If I had family or friends anywhere near Ferguson, Missouri, I would offer two layers of advice. First would be the recommendation for a well-timed family trip out of town. Barring that, the other suggestion would be the immediate purchase of a gun. Not because I know for a fact that rioting will break out […] Read More →

Here’s What a Woman Got After Calling Muslim Terrorists “Filthy Rodents”

 Columnist and former British reality television sensation Katie Hopkins has landed in a bit of hot water after making what some have called racially-charged comments on social media.

David Axelrod to Hillary: You’re not inevitable

 No less a Democratic figure than long-time Obama advisor and campaign guru David Axelrod is warning Hillary Clinton that he is starting to see dark shades of the 2008 race casting a pall over the purportedly inevitable 2016 presidential nominee. Speaking at a Wall Street Journal breakfast, Axelrod warned Clinton that she needs to stop […] Read More →

Joanne Moudy,   Dirty politics, lies and cover-ups are the liberal, socialist Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) stock in trade, but one hopes for higher standards from the Republican National Committee (RNC). But apparently that’s too much to expect, especially in Arizona. On Saturday, November 8, Arizona’s RNC National Committeeman Bruce Ash got on the airwaves with […] Read More →

Republican Dan Sullivan wins Senate race in Alaska

 Republican Dan Sullivan won Alaska’s U.S. Senate race, defeating first-term incumbent Democrat Mark Begich. Sullivan led Begich by about 8,100 votes on Election Night last week and held a comparable edge after election workers had counted about 20,000 absentee, early-voted and questioned ballots late Tuesday.

Blacks Must Embrace Freedom, Learn, and Progress

Star Parker,  I am a conservative. I believe in the truth of traditional values, of limited government, and free markets. And I believe in personal freedom and that it is not possible without all the above. Our country has been going in the opposite direction and things, predictably, have not been going well. The American […] Read More →
