  • Scott Walker reminds us money can get you on the stage but if you can’t sing you get the hook

    Like a significant number of conservatives I thought Scott Walker would be the right man to lead the Republican Party to victory next year. He seemed to have what it takes to fight Democrats and win even in a Blue State. His list of accomplishments impressed others as well. Then came the first Presidential Debate. Walker’s performance was stunningly poor. Worse still was his disappearance in the second debate which cost him the support of 98% of his previous backers. In the first debate he was a silent crash dummy. In the second go-round Walker, the guy who had built...

    Early in September, Shaquandra Ratliff was killed in Chicago. The young mother was shot when a fight broke out at a “death remembrance party” for a gang member slain a year ago. But police say Ratliff had no gang affiliation and simply was at the wrong place at the wrong time. In other words, this is a story about yet another innocent black person shot to death. A report on the killing was posted on Yahoo! News, the most popular news site in the United States. Yahoo! News allows people to comment on articles and/or to vote on comments. A...

    Rep. Kevin McCarthy is not even Speaker of the House yet, but there is already a group ready to fire him. A group of prominent right-leaning organizations formed a coalition Wednesday dubbed "Fire Kevin McCarthy," pledging to remove the California Republican should he be chosen to replace John Boehner when he retires at the end of next month. "Having worked with Kevin McCarthy in the House, I'll admit he's a friendly guy," former Georgia Rep. Paul Broun said in a statement announcing the formation of the coalition. "But we need a dramatic change in House leadership — we can't afford...

    While more conservative GOP lawmakers in the House celebrated the decision of Speaker John Boehner to leave his post, those same Tea Party lawmakers readily acknowledged that they are passing on the idea of trying to elect one of their own fellow conservatives as Boehner’s replacement, or even to fill another expected opening for a top Republican leadership post in the House. “This has never been about making the conservatives the leaders of the party,” said Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID). “We never thought we had enough votes to get one of our own elected,” said Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), as...

Talk show host Rush Limbaugh often promoted Fox News in the early years of the network, helping to establish the connection with conservatives across the country. In fact, thanks to Rush and others on talk radio, Fox News enjoyed tremendous ratings growth over the...

The feds claimed Hillsdale, which offers a traditional liberal arts curriculum grounded in Judeo-Christian and Greco-Roman traditions, does not grant enough bachelor degrees to be ranked, while Grove City – a staunchly Christian institution – was snubbed because it refuses federal funding.

Having Jason Chaffetz of Utah deliver the news was supposed to somehow protect Boehner from the anticipated blow back, but it didn’t. Under extreme pressure he never saw coming,...

    House Speaker John A.

    LONDON — A veteran anti-war campaigner known for his unapologetically socialist views has won a landslide victory to lead Britain's opposition Labour Party — an outcome that delighted supporters and dismayed others who never imagined he could be elected. The overwhelming support for far-left lawmaker Jeremy Corbyn, 66, was one of the biggest shake-ups in British politics in decades. His win Saturday marks a sharp left turn for his party — and will significantly challenge the tone of mainstream British politics, which is now dominated by Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives.

Khan, a former human rights lawyer, will stand in elections being held next May to decide who should follow Conservative Boris Johnson, one of Britain’s best-known politicians, into City Hall. While the mayor of London has fewer powers than in comparable world cities such as New York, it is a high-profile job which usually attracts ambitious figures.

Pristinely dressed in the black robes and scarlet sash of the princes of the Roman Catholic Church, Wisconsin-born Cardinal Raymond Burke sat in his elaborately upholstered armchair and appeared to issue a warning to Pope Francis. A staunch conservative and Vatican bureaucrat, Burke had been demoted by the pope a few months earlier, but it did not take the fight out of him. Francis had been backing a more inclusive era, giving space to progressive...

Veteran CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller asked him if such a uniform ban would affect the president "adversely."

    There are few uglier phrases in the modern conservative lexicon than "anchor baby," not least because of the literal imagery the term brings to mind of a human infant, wrapped in chains and flung overboard to secure a vessel in place. But even as a figure of speech, it's a despicable concept. It refers to the notion that undocumented immigrants exploit the quintessentially American policy of birthright citizenship, which confers the status of citizen to anyone born on U.S. territory, by sneaking across the border to give birth to their children. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush recently stumbled into the...

Whether out of panic or sincerity, a number of other Republican candidates have joined the bandwagon. This is probably good politics for the GOP nomination and almost certainly bad politics for the general election. I am inclined against the idea as a matter of public policy, because the costs would outweigh the benefits. But I am far from convinced it is something to be outraged about.

    US Tribal Warfare , Human Evolution, and the Welcome Death of Politics, and the Obama Way I used to think and say that, “Liberals belong here too. They are part of the gene pool. Obviously, we are genetically pe-programmed to argue both sides of all important questions and then reach a workable, reasonable synthesis.” I don’t think that anymore; or say it. I now think and say, that if Liberals existed back during the Ice Age they must have been put out on the ice flows at night, for being extremely dangerous to survival of the tribe and clans....

    Like Jonathan S. Tobin at Commentary, I have little doubt that TrumpMania will soon fade away. There has always been a willingness among a part of the electorate to get behind an angry outsider, but when push comes to shove, even those voters opt for a candidate they can trust. Trump simply isn’t that guy. Tobin’s third argument, which I consider to be the most important one, is as follows: "Third, the assumption on the part of some that a public that has been watching Trump on TV for years already knows all it cares to learn about the man...

    Mark Levin’s new book will no doubt be a bestseller, just like his previous offerings. But his latest work should be required reading for every recent college or high school grad just starting to make his way in the world, as well as every American voter. Levin explains in elegant, but easy to understand terms just how Washington and the elites who infest the nation’s capital are stealing our future. Woven into his narrative are both his original analysis of the corruption of our modern state and thoughts on liberty and freedom from great statesmen like James Madison and Edmund...

    According to a Gallup survey conducted this month, American liberals are more likely to drink than American conservatives. From July 8-12, Gallup asked 1,009 adults in the United States: “Do you have occasion to use alcoholic beverages such as liquor, wine, or beer, or are you a total abstainer?” The results, which had a margin of error of ± 4 percentage points, showed a number of trends. Only 61 percent of self-identified conservatives said, yes, they do have occasion to use alcoholic beverages. However, 65 percent of moderates said yes, and 69 percent of liberals said yes. …

    Remember back in the late ’80s and early ’90s, when the Berlin Wall was coming down and all the talk about perestroika and glasnost were making the rounds, when Gorbachev came to power and was being viewed as the great Russian reformer who would bring about the long-awaited change that would bring the deprived population into prosperity and twenty-first century convenience, when scores of MiG fighter jets were mothballed at obscure Balkan air bases and the Russian leadership was making overtures about better relations and stronger ties with the west? Remember when western leaders were acting as if the long...

  • Conservatives Are Going After Law Enforcement Agencies In the Name of Property Rights

    Joseph Rivers, an aspiring artist from Michigan, had his dreams shattered by federal agents. On a train to California, where he was going to start a video production business, he had his $16,000 in life savings seized by the Drug Enforcement Agency under the mere claimed suspicion that it was going to be used as drug money. A hunch or suspicion is enough for some law enforcement agents to seize someone's property and hold it until they prove themselves innocent. As the Albuquerque Journal, which first reported Rivers' case, quoted the DEA agent in charge: "We don't have to prove...
