Illegitimate government and penciled-in borders

As is his wont, Ron Paul managed to go overboard in his defense of Vladimir Putin's annexation of the Crimean peninsula, somehow extrapolating a legal Russian right of invasion from their lease on the Sevastopol naval base.  He thought Russia might respond to our accusations of occupation by snapping that America's occupying Cuba because of Guantanamo Bay, which bizarrely ignores the significant detail that the United States is not actually occupying Cuba, the way Russia has troops all over the Crimea, and Putin's talking about how the boys might enjoy a romp all the way to Kiev.

Sticking up for Julie Boonstra

Dan Calabrese at the Detroit News lays into the media organs that helped Democrats paint cancer patient Julie Boonstra as a liar for complaining about ObamaCare, recalling an earlier age when the media afflicted the powerful with tough questions, rather than teaming up to take down inconvenient private citizens: Mar 13, 2014 8:45 PM PT

In defense of Tesla

I've been highly skeptical of electric cars in the past, not because I have any problem with the cars or anyone who wants to drive them, but because of all the compulsory tax money forced into the programs.  The Chevy Volt is by far the worst offender.  It's one of the biggest wastes of U.S. taxpayer money you can find, outside of ObamaCare.   Mar 13, 2014 8:56 AM PT

Mysterious Mexican Army border incursion

Vladimir Putin isn't the only one who can slip a few armed men across an inconvenient border.  Buzzfeed has a big story about a possible Mexican Army incursion into Arizona.  It's a big enough deal to have Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) on the case: Mar 8, 2014 2:07 PM PT

Russian troops drop a minefield in Crimea

Hey, didn't their used to be a determined group of international activists who thought land mines were a crime against humanity, given their propensity for causing civilian collateral damage, sometimes long after the conflict has ended? Mar 8, 2014 1:27 PM PT

Liberty and transcendence

During their CPAC 2014 speeches, both Mike Huckabee and Ralph Reed mentioned the importance of religious faith to the American understanding of liberty.  The ongoing assault against freedom of conscience - and it is an assault, deliberate and strategic - makes it more important than ever to understand this connection between liberty and transcendence.

In praise of being against stuff

New Jersey governor Chris Christie got a great reception at CPAC 2014, which is quite a comeback, considering he wasn't invited last time.  This might be partially due to a circling of conservative wagons, as Christie is widely seen as victim of a huge media double standard.  Barack Obama gets to awaken each day pretending he's stunned to find himself in Washington, with no clear memory of how he got there, or anything he's done for the past five years.  The media yawns when Obama repeatedly claims he has no idea what any of his subordinates are doing, and they don't know what their underlings are up to, but Christie gets wall-to-wall saturation coverage over a bridge lane closing.
