Are Conservatives 'Underreacting' on Immigration Decree?

A little less than two weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to the 20th anniversary of the David Horowitz Freedom Center's Restoration Weekend in Palm Beach, FL.  Seriously, you can't beat the view.  There were some familiar faces and topics, but it was also a good opportunity to talk to politicians outside of D.C. since many of them hang around for the entire weekend.  (One highlight was talking to Rep. Michelle Bachmann about my book and the dating scene in D.C.) Nov 24, 2014 12:34 PM PT

Who Will a Higher Minimum Wage Actually Help?

The Daily Signal put up this video of comments from federal workers who are on strike because they want a higher minimum wage.  Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) says that it isn't fair for the top 1% to have so much income and that it should be redistributed.  The current minimum wage for federal workers is $10.10 (thanks to an executive order from the President).  Perhaps I could get on this redistribution bandwagon if we applied it to the top 1% of federal workers.  I'm sure they're all overpaid, so let's redistribute it to those who risk their lives for their country rather than those who work at the National Zoo (which has a pretty dismal record).   Nov 18, 2014 8:01 AM PT

Do You Believe in Miracles?

There was a time when I didn't believe in God or miracles or anything else related to Christianity.  I wrote in my book, Finding Mr. Righteous, about my religious journey and the moments that led to becoming Christian.  One of them was having the opportunity to sit next to author Eric Metaxas at a dinner event.  We had mutual friends and I told him that one of them had recommended his books.  I sheepishly admitted that I hadn't had a chance to read them yet.  He said he brought one copy of Everything You Always Wanted to Know about God (But Were Afraid to Ask), The Jesus Edition and that perhaps it was meant for me.   Nov 3, 2014 7:27 AM PT

This Halloween Be as Sexy or Offensive as You Want to Be

For the last couple of years we can't stop hearing about ridiculous sexy costumes.  Sexy Pizza.  Sexy Ghostbuster.  Sexy Mouse.  Even Sexy Wednesday Addams.  This has prompted a lot of articles from feminists with phrases like "we should be asking ourselves" and "what kind of example are we setting for young women?"  It's as if these aren't the same women who preach to young women about abortion-on-demand and empowerment through non-committal sex.

The Good Guys

The recent news of Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers stopping a terrorist at the Canadian Parliament is a much-needed reminder that the best defense against a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.  Oct 28, 2014 6:53 AM PT

Winning the Senate Depends on Picking the Right Battles

I'm generally skeptical of consultants who hype up digital and social media capabilities while ignoring the "old-fashioned" part of campaigning.  Much was made in the 2012 election about the Obama campaign's use of technology, while ignoring the boots on the ground networking.

VIDEO: Dem Candidate Let FALN Terrorists Go Free As Favor To Hillary

This TV ad was put out by 60 Plus Association.  Not only does it hurt Fred DuVal, the Democratic candidate for Governor in Arizona, but it is a reminder that the narrative of Hillary Clinton as stately grandma is far from the truth.  As Joe Connor, the son of a man killed in the bombing, said in the ad, Democrats like Clinton and DuVal "played Russian Roulette with the American people."

Man Gets Caught Stealing Republicans' Signs in Arizona

A reader sent me this video of a man stealing Republicans' campaign signs in Phoenix.  The video seems to be going viral in Phoenix, as many candidates have noticed signs being taken.  Police found this man and he admitted to stealing even more signs over a 12 day period.  One of the candidate's realized signs were being stolen, so it looks like they were ready to catch someone in the act.   Oct 13, 2014 2:21 PM PT

The Lobbyist and the Entrepreneur

Last week, Glenn Reynolds (the great Instapundit) remarked that “when lobbying pays better than any other investment” you end up with a decline in entrepreneurship.  Sep 22, 2014 6:59 AM PT
