"Voting is a right best exercised by people who have taken time to learn about the issues." - Tony Snow
After the first debate of the 2016 election cycle ended, and the media rushed the candidates for post-debate interviews, Carly Fiorina made a remark while speaking with Chris Matthews that struck me. Fiorina, whose debate performance was a masterclass in how to make everyone else completely forgettable, mentioned that only fifty percent of Republican voters even know who she is.
I'm neck-deep Read more [...]
The brilliant radio host Mark Levin went on Fox News Wednesday night to opine about the sad fact that Republicans have never had the opportunity to vote for an actual conservative. While his fellow panelist George Will believes that the base is angry, Levin believes that the base is more disappointed and frustrated than anything else.
I don't think anger describes the base. I think disappointment and frustration describes the base and rightly so. We have a Republican Congress that keeps surrendering Read more [...]
New Hampshire legislators stripped the state’s six Planned Parenthood clinics of state funds Wednesday, deleting roughly one third of their public funding.
The state’s Republican-led Executive Council rejected a $639,000 funding contract with Planned Parenthood, reported local ABC affiliate WMUR9. The Council cited a series of undercover videos in the meeting, which show top Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and participating in the harvesting, dissection, and distribution of aborted fetuses.

We’ve written about these sorts of situations many times before. If you’re at all familiar with my articles, you’ll know that I don’t like the idea of a "hate crimes." Punishment for a crime shouldn’t be more severe just because the perpetrator’s motive had to do with his victim’s race. Criminal acts should be punished, not the criminal’s alleged thoughts. There should be no such thing as a thought crime.
But in this day and age, the powers that be over-emphasize race in every Read more [...]
A group of Duke University students penned an editorial in which they posited that Dylann Roof didn’t act alone in his murderous rampage at a Black church in Charleston. White privilege, and by extension, every white American played a part and even “held the church door open” for Roof. Here’s a choice snippet:
Being white does not mean that you owned slaves. It does not mean that you bought a house with the G.I. Bill. It does not mean that you benefitted from welfare. But, the minute you Read more [...]
People should stop trying to out-trump Donald Trump. It’s basically not possible. First off, Trump is willing to say wilder, more controversial things than you are. Second, he won’t be as embarrassed as you will be when he watches himself later on TV. In fact, I don’t know that he is able to be embarrassed. But if anyone can compete with Trump, it has to be Kelly Osbourne. I mean, they both have a famous penchant for bad hair. So there’s that.
Anyway, I can’t let this one slide because Read more [...]
I know we’re not supposed to make comparisons between the Nazis and anyone else. Godwin’s Law and all that. I get it. But in this case, I think the comparison needs to be made because the ethical dilemma is quite similar. To the point, if we are squeamish utilizing the (possibly life-saving!) medical research accumulated by the Nazi torture of Jews, why are we any less uncomfortable utilizing the (even more dubiously life-saving) medical research accumulated from the torture (What else are you Read more [...]
In the above video, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest uses what has quickly become the go-to defense for Planned Parenthood supporters in the wake of the Center for Medical Progress releasing a string of undercover videos in which abortion providers are discussing the sale of organs and tissue Sent from my iPad
"These videos have been selectively edited!" chant the liberals in unison.
In fact, even when Jake Tapper challenges that idea, Earnest dodges:
Earnest: "I haven't actually Read more [...]
93% of all pregnant women who enter Planned Parenthood for “counsel” leave without their child.
Planned Parenthood claims that 3% of all their health services are abortion services but that’s not even close to the truth. Watch this video to learn what percentage of their health services are abortions.
Chronic marijuana use as an adolescent has no link to mental or physical health problems later in life, according to a new study conducted over the past 20 years.
Published by the American Physiological Association, researchers from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Rutgers University divided participants into four groups from their teenage years onward.
One group almost never smoked marijuana, one used it mostly in their teenage years, another started using in adulthood and Read more [...]
How dare they try to remove federal funding from an organization that provides infanticide reproductive healthcare for women. Everyone knows that Planned Parenthood is the only place that provides cancer screenings and STI testing. No doctor’s office or urgent care clinic offers those very unique services. Shutting off federal funding to Planned Parenthood would mean that women will now have to be forced to get cancer and STIs.
Only a group of people who had “lost their moral compass” Read more [...]
Even though the Senate still wants to keep federal money flowing into Planned Parenthood’s coffers, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal wants to do what he can to cut off the flow of public money to the “women’s health” organization. The Blaze reported:
“In recent weeks, it has been shocking to see reports of the alleged activities taking place at Planned Parenthood facilities across the country. Planned Parenthood does not represent the values of the people of Louisiana and shows a fundamental Read more [...]
