What Progressives Want

If you were afraid that things couldn’t possibly get worse than having Hillary Clinton as the next president, don’t worry — things can indeed get worse than that. Elizabeth Warren is coming on strong as the preferred candidate for everyone who thinks Hillary Clinton is a traditional-values, free-market, small-government Reaganite. What’s got the hard-core progressives so fired up about Warren? Larry Correia takes More …

Steyn on the Knockout Game

It’s a Mark Steyn column that references C.S. Lewis, therefore, according to the bylaws of this website, I had to post it: “No justification of virtue will enable a man to be virtuous,” wrote Lewis — and, likewise, no law can prevent a thug punching an old lady to the ground if the thug is minded to. “A society’s first More …

Anthony Weiner and Cheap Grace

I’m going to refrain from writing too much about the Anthony Weiner Debacle 2.0, because we’ve already reach the point where just the act of making a joke about him is kind of a joke in itself, and that’s way too meta for me. I’ll just recommend this post by David French: We’re all susceptible to cheap grace. Perhaps that’s More …

When Did the Midwest Become the Weimar Republic?

I know it’s bad form to compare people to Nazis. But it’s also bad form to shout “Fire” in a crowded theater… unless the theater is actually on fire! First Wisconsin and now Michigan have been swarmed by labor union thugs trying to take over the duly elected state government. These people are brownshirts, and somebody needs to start pointing More …

Exodus Now

E.W. Jackson is calling for an exodus of black Christians from the Democratic party. I’m not black, and I’m not a Democrat, but, dang, he has my attention: If he’s successful, maybe we can get him to launch a push to get white Christians out of the Democratic party too. And then all other colors of Christians. And then people More …

The Democrat’s Love/Hate Relationship with Jews

Basically it’s that they love their money, but they hate they’re country. I was afraid I was too harsh on the Democrats’ treatment of Christians, but Roger Simon asks some deadly serious questions to his fellow Jews: Which leads me to the incendiary part of this article.  I address it to my fellow Jews who are currently in the Democratic More …

The Democrats’ Love/Hate Relationship with God

I never want people to think that I believe “Republican = Christian” and “Democrat = Heathen.” I think that Christians of goodwill can have political beliefs that range from tree-huggingly liberal to gun-polishingly conservative. However, it is time for Democrat Christians to recognize the fact that their party leadership has a serious problem with God. As exhibit A, let’s look More …

Obama DNC Speech Breakdown

Big Government has posted a handy breakdown of Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention, conveniently color-coded in these four categories: Things no one saysThings everyone supportsEmpty promisesPleading for votes Actually, this would work on every speech Obama gives.

Republican and Democratic Platforms on Abortion

Justin Taylor points to Kevin DeYoung’s analysis of the Republican and Democrat party platforms on abortion in the post-Roe v. Wade era.  Needless to say, the party positions on abortion have just become more and more significant as time has passed. Taylor adds his own observations, including: …the Democrats have chosen a new tact this year in explicitly highlighting and More …
