Teary Obama Won’t Cry For Constitution

‪On Tuesday, President Obama unleashed a disgusting assault on more than half of Americans, suggesting over and over again that if they cared about dead children, they’d simply make way for his gun-control agenda.


George Will: Beating Hillary Less Important Than Stopping Trump

As the end of the year approaches, Donald Trump is solidly ensconced at the top of the Republican polls nationally. The man just behind him? Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), an establishment bugaboo. The establishment’s favorite candidate, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), is currently running far behind in national polling, a distant third in Iowa, and in a deadlock with Cruz and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for second in New Hampshire.

The party is over. Last one out, turn out the lights.

This week, we’ve seen both grassroots conservatives and elitist establishment-types threaten to leave the Republican Party.


If You Care About Trump’s ‘Schlonged’ Comment, You’re a Dumb Schmuck

‪The fuddy-duddies are out in force. There are plenty of reasons to label Donald Trump vulgar: his attacks on John McCain’s war record, his oblique reference to Megyn Kelly’s menstruation. But for those tut-tutting Trump’s characterization of Barack Obama’s 2008 run against Hillary Clinton – lighten up.

King Obama Wins Again

Our elected King gets precisely what he wants from his compliant parliament. Elected Republicans refuse time and time again to use either of the constitutional powers delegated to them to stop an overreaching executive: impeachment or the power of the purse.


Republican Debate Grades: Trump Actually Won This Time

Tonight’s Republican debate did little to shift the field. After tonight, Donald Trump will remain the frontrunner; Jeb Bush will continue to bring up the rear; John Kasich will continue to be the boil festering on the ass of the American public.

How Many Americans Must Die For The Left’s Gun-Grab To Work?

Monday marked the third anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre by evil psychotic Adam Lanza.

Republican Establishment Will Eventually Settle Behind Trump

The establishment seems unwilling to throw over any of its candidates in favor of someone like Sen. Ted Cruz, because they disagree with regard to policy and approach with Cruz. But then they complain that Donald Trump isn’t conservative enough.

San Bernardino Shootings Destroy Leftist Narrative After Leftist Narrative

Over the last 48 hours, the unserious parade of clown leftists in politics and the media have jumped on every narrative rake in sight. They desperately wanted the shooting in San Bernardino to be a right-winger with an NRA tramp stamp gone mad. Instead, it turned out to be two Muslims who dropped their six-month-old baby off in order to pursue killing.

Democrats Leave Bodies in Their Wake to Protect Their Power

Democrats will do anything – anything – to stay in power. That’s the lesson from the last 24 hours of revelations from the Obama administration, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the Rahm Emanuel mayoralty in Chicago.

Obama: ‘Un-American’ Not to Take in More Muslim Refugees

President Obama wants more Syrian Muslim refugees in the West. Speaking in Turkey on Monday, Obama explained that the West needed to open its heart to Muslim refugees, who after all were fleeing from terrorism in the Middle East to the safe and warm arms of the West.

Mizzou Misérable: Here’s What These Fascist Student Protesters Are Actually Demanding

The kiddie Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact is in full swing. One the one hand, we’ve got the Pantywaist Fascists too timid to handle “microaggressions” but just aggressive enough to call the cops for hurt feelings, the racists who ban white students from their “safe spaces,” and their weak-kneed allies calling for “muscle” against reporters. On the other, we’ve got the intellectual flotsam of the Occupy Wall Street movement, insisting that the one-percenters at the banks that grant loans now hand that money over for free so that they can use it for their vital degree in gender studies and their concentration in lesbian dance theory.

Media Get Curious About Hillary’s Story of Joining The Marines

The Republican field has had, well, a field day bashing the media – and for good reason. The botched hits on Ben Carson’s biography, the attacks on the finances of Marco Rubio, the endless parade of whining about Donald Trump’s various statements – the media have been all over the Republican candidates from the outset.

What Is ‘White Privilege’?

The president of the University of Missouri, Tim Wolfe, had to go. He had to go because he benefitted from “white privilege.” That, at least, was the victorious argument of the intellectual heavyweights of Concerned Student 1950, who insisted that Wolfe acknowledge his “white privilege” before leaving office in a handwritten – not typed, dammit! — letter.

The Right to Try: How the FDA Is Killing Americans

This week, Darcy Olsen, president of the Goldwater Institute, released a vital and fascinating new book, The Right to Try: How the Federal Government Prevents Americans from Getting the Lifesaving Treatments They Need. It’s a must-read rebuttal of the left’s number one argument for big government: the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) protects us from evil capitalists who would alternatively poison us or toss us into meat grinders for the viewing pleasure of Sinclair Lewis.


Seven Lessons from the University of Missouri Debacle

Hillary Says Gender Is a Social Construct, But We MUST Have a Female President

The city of Houston decided on Tuesday not to engage in the mass delusion that says that men are women and women men. The 2-1 vote not to allow biological men to use female bathrooms, and not to force employers to continue paying employees who decide to impersonate members of other sexes on the job, is a welcome breath of fresh air. But that has 2016 Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton all hot and bothered.
