What is the alternative to the rule of law? We may be on the verge of re-learning that ancient lesson the hard way.Of course, those of us who is served in places where there was no law, where leftists and other aspiring totalitarians ignored the rules and norms of civil society, already know.
The GOP is in the midst of a public foreign policy debate. Debate is fine, but as Republican we must agree on some basic premises.
It's astonishing that an ideology which such an unbroken track record of failure has adherents who are so incredibly pleased with themselves
Here’s a wacky idea. Let’s win the war against our jihadi enemies.
Conservatism is the Ramones at CBGB – loud, fast and alive.
Liberals never met a civil right they didn't dislike. As with everything about liberal ideology, liberals’ great concern for civil rights is a scam, a lie, a fraud designed to sucker in the weak-minded and disguise their goosesteppy inclinations.
?Some conservatives live to fight.They love to take their opponents down. They hate compromise and hesitation.Think Andrew Breitbart taking over Anthony Wiener’s news conference. Call us the Battle Cons.We feed off of the energy of conflict; we’re commandos in the war for America's culture.
The liberal attack on religion stems from envy, greed, anger and hate, just like every other precept of liberalism. Liberals envy the loyalty and devotion that religion inspires. They hunger greedily to have it for themselves.
Refusing to support every GOP nominee means you are choosing to be silenced, disenfranchised and disarmed.
The establishment – defined less by party than by power – is using every weapon it has to shut you up, to marginalize you, and to beat you into submission.
Non-lawyers often ask me, “What is the best way to argue with a liberal?” This is silly, because there is no best way to argue with a liberal. They're beyond argument.
Happy Memorial Day. Sadly, many in Washington seem committed to pushing policies that will ensure that there will be plenty of deceased veterans to memorialize.
When the whole shoddy edifice of the progressive project collapses under its own dead weight, it will largely be because the liberals forgot to breed enough mindless minions to keep shoring it up. The left has always depended on a never-ending parade of credulous children to revitalize its dwindling ranks as the march of time and maturity depletes them.
Liberals have a new word for what normal people call “success.” They call it “privilege,” as if a happy, prosperous life is the result of some magic process related to where your great-great-great-grandfather came from.
Ironically, the blizzard of YJ-82X cruise missiles launched from the Chinese subs lying off the coast of Baja California crossed the beach directly over the SEAL training complex on Coronado. America had decided that its special forces were a cheap substitute for the less glamorous hardware and formations that had traditionally been the foundation of American military power. Now, those elite warriors watched helplessly as the missiles roared overhead north toward the two carriers berthed at North Island.
Liberals like to call the Constitution a “living document.” Oh, how many activists in robes cite that mind-bogglingly misguided metaphor as they turn a foundational document into a kind of political Mad Lib where they scribble nonsense into blanks that don’t exist?
Honest liberals are having their Andrew Breitbart moment. Andrew started out as a liberal, except he was the kind of liberal that’s exceedingly rare today. He was a liberal who actually believed in the things liberals say they believe in, like free expression and personal autonomy.
Democrats are waging war on the faithful and are even comfortable booing God on national TV. Give it three more presidential election cycles and the Democrat Party’s platform will be expressly antireligious.
Can you feel the excitement? The Washington Post reports that all the important Republicans have decided that Jeb Bush is going to be our nominee in 2016. Phew, that’s a relief! If we had had a primary, we conservatives who actually do all the working and voting for the GOP might have had a say.
?It’s difficult to understand liberals when you don’t live in their sheltered cocoon of participation trophies, faux caring and feel-good lies.
