One Nation Under Obama

May 30, 2009 | Politics

Barack Obama has long been known for his socialistic convictions and messianic tendencies. That he therefore wants to rule rather than represent and to dictate rather than debate is not hard to understand. And while he may not come right out and say it, he expects us to pledge allegiance to him. He said as much when he told Republican House members just three days after his inauguration that the quicker they quit listening to voices that run counter to his, the better for us all. Read more…

Frank Miniter on Recapturing Manhood

May 28, 2009 | Politics

In this day where words have lost their meaning and men have lost their chests, as C.S. Lewis foresaw decades ago, Frank Miniter’s The Ultimate Man’s Survival Guide: Recovering the Lost Art of Mahood is as refreshing as it is necessary. For it is not simply a list of “how to’s” directed toward those who may unexpectedly find themselves in a life and death situation in the wilds of Alaska, the suburbs of Chicago, or the deserts of the Sahara, but an honest guide to what Miniter calls “manly” living. As such, it is ultimately as much a guide to manhood as it is a guide to survival itself. Read more…

Obama’s Plan to Make Us All ‘Cul-eee-forn-yans’

May 27, 2009 | Politics

President Obama’s deficit spending is driving us deeper into debt than did that of any president before him. He’s actually driving us deeper into debt than did every previous president combined, and the deficits he’s creating are greater than any we saw throughout all eight years of George W. Bush’s administration. Yet as new and dangerous as Obama’s spending is on the federal level, it is not completely without precedent. In fact, we only have to cast our eyes West, to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Cul-eee-forn-ya” to see just where such spending is certain to take us. The parallels between Schwarzenegger and Obama are legion. Read more…

Dick Cheney: Unplugged and Unashamed

May 17, 2009 | Politics

Long before Dick Cheney chose Rush Limbaugh over Colin Powell as worthy of Republican emulation in a recent Face the Nation segment, he made a name for himself as a conservative of the caliber of Ronald Reagan. Throughout the course of his political career the former vice president, defense secretary, congressman, and oilman has proven to be a stalwart and a leftist’s worst nightmare, for he is not only conservative but seemingly unaffected by the Left’s derisive politics of shame.

The Democratic Double Standard

May 12, 2009 | Politics

During Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court, allegations were made that he had sexually harassed Anita Hill. The allegations were unfounded and eventually proven false. When Bill Clinton was accused of having an affair with a White House intern, he said,”I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” Days later he admitted he had indeed had sexual relations with her.

Do Democrats Want to Take our Guns?

May 4, 2009 | Politics

Few things in this life are more politically divisive than guns. Generally speaking, liberals hate them and conservatives love them. Yet both history and experience teach us that few things are as integral to freedom as guns. Therefore, when liberal politicians push for more gun control, freedom-loving Americans panic because they know that an assault on guns is an assault on freedom. Read more…

May 1, 2009 | Politics

How are Democrats able to push their hyperliberal agenda in what otherwise appear to be conservative states such as Colorado and Iowa? Who is behind the sudden rush of laws allowing same sex marriage? Read more…
