Margaret Thatcher, the combative "Iron Lady" who infuriated European allies, found a fellow believer in Ronald Reagan and transformed her country by a ruthless dedication to free markets in 11 years as prime minister, has died. She was 87.
Unlike major Washington, DC-based events or national political conventions, the people who come to Lincoln Day (on the GOP side) or Jefferson-Jackson Day (for the Dems) dinners, or county picnics during the summer, or participate in parades are the people who are truly the backbone of American politics.
When the radicals start defending “standards,” that’s when you have to become suspicious—of the standards. That is the case with Obama’s federalized education plan called Common Core.
In what may be the greatest victory to date for the sophisticatedly asinine organization "No Labels," the Associated Press has embraced a new policy against "labeling people."
At a committee hearing in the Florida legislature on a proposed “Born Alive Bill,” Planned Parenthood’s Alisa Lepolt Snow stunningly asserted that the fate of a child who survives a botched abortion should be left to the discretion of the mother and her doctor.
A Wisconsin school district has launched an investigation into accusations that teachers have bullied and harassed a politically active student.
Billions of Christians around the world celebrated Easter last Sunday, but not our media. Once again the holiest day of the Christian year slipped under their godless radar.
The quest to live longer is an old one. Around this time, we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the first known European discovering Florida---Ponce de Leon.
The Student Government Association at Johns Hopkins University compared pro-life students to white supremacists and denied them official club status at the school.
During a time when we are about to celebrate the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus the Christ, the United States Supreme Court is deliberating the possible crucifixion of the moral foundation of America.
Planned Parenthood is as secretive as it is deadly. In other words, it not only ends the lives of hundreds of thousands of unborn children each year but also conceals records revealing pertinent aspects of its operation costs, important details regarding “policies and services available to minors,” and it provides different numbers on salary information based on whether it is filling out state or federal paperwork.
The Supreme Court is hearing a challenge to the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, deciding whether the federal government can deny benefits to same-sex couples. A majority of the justices are indicating the law is in jeopardy.

Are women equal to men? Are Jews equal to gentiles? Are blacks equal to Italians, Irish, Polish and other white people? The answer is probably a big fat no, and the pretense or assumption that we are equal -- or should be equal -- is foolhardy and creates mischief. Let's look at it.

The feminists have ratcheted up the laws against men to such an outrageous level that paternity fraud is not just ignored, but routinely rubber stamped by the courts. Whether one agrees with the concept of child support or not, virtually everyone can agree that jailing men for child support over children who are not theirs is morally wrong.
The battle over gay marriage takes center stage at the Supreme Court this week as justices hear arguments over California's ban on same-sex marriage Tuesday, followed a day later by a challenge to the Federal Defense of Marriage Act.
Evidently, it takes four months and 100 pages for the RNC to figure out why the party lost the 2012 presidential election and how to fix it. Most of conservatives could tell you in three paragraphs. That 100-page Growth & Opportunity Project to me was billed by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus as a “bold, raw, real” autopsy of the state of the GOP.
Speaker of the House John Boehner says his opposition to same-sex marriage comes from his upbringing. He also discussed the Defense of Marriage Act, which will be considered by the Supreme Court next week.
