  • Why a Georgia sheriff posted this 'politically incorrect' welcome sign

    Drive through western Georgia on State Route 116 and you might notice an unusual declaration on a welcome sign: Harris County is not politically correct. The sign, which went up earlier this week, cheerfully welcomes visitors to the county — and then warns them. "WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect," the sign states. "We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America and In God We Trust. We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you ... LEAVE!" Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley put up the sign because, he said, over the years he has seen "the silent majority” grow...

    Europe is dying. Its culture has been coming apart since World War I, and it is now almost gone. Western culture is beginning its descent in America as well. It is a tragedy, and many people will have their lives made miserable and many more will die before it is resolved. Yet there are some who actually celebrate the death of western Christian culture. They act like petulant children, incapable of imagining that they could ever drown, who are drilling holes through the bottom of their boat because a service provider didn’t smile at them. They are so myopic all...

    Considering the Freedom Center’s aggressive political work, poetry may not be something one would expect to find as part of its intellectual arsenal. But as many conservative writers such as Andrew Klavan and myself have noted for years, reclaiming America means reclaiming the culture, and that means engaging in the arts. As Finch writes in his introduction, “[I]f as a people, and a nation, we can return to something lost, recovering something from our culture that has been torn, then it can only happen through art.” The art of Finding Home is Michael Finch’s deeply personal contribution to the culture...

    The Hesburgh letter recognized “the validity of protest” but made clear that any group that “substituted force for rational persuasion, be it violent or nonviolent,” would be given 15 minutes to meditate. Students who persisted would have their IDs confiscated and be “suspended from this community.” On cue, Yale President Peter Salovey calls for civility and has repeated Yale’s commitment to free expression. But at a moment when people thirst for a university president who will back up his words, Mr. Salovey, like so many others, apologizes. “We have failed you,” he told protestors. Indeed they have failed. Just not...

    Tuesday’s Republican debate will be focusing on economic issues, including how to restore prosperity to this country for all Americans, how to strengthen our middle class and create more good-paying jobs. On Friday, we found out that the economy added 271,000 jobs in October with the unemployment rate falling to 5%. But those numbers don't reflect reality for millions of Americans still struggling to find a job. The number of Americans who are currently working or actively looking for work is at 62.4%, the lowest level since 1977. Median household income has actually fallen since President Obama took office in...

    Nearly a month after a tragic mass shooting shook Umpqua Community College, a rural Oregon county roughly two hours west of the school passed a measure directing the sheriff to bypass state and federal gun laws if he judges them unconstitutional. Coos County residents smoothly approved the Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance on Tuesday with more than 60 percent voting for its passage. The ordinance bars public employees from using county funds to enforce any laws the sheriff deems unconstitutional. It also prohibits enforcement of Oregon’s recent law requiring background checks on private gun transfers, including transactions between friends. County employees...

    We are in the midst of a cultural collapse. One of the indicators is a phenomena called “mircoaggression.” Most people have never heard of the term, but its applications are taken for granted at most American universities. Microaggression is a phrase used to refer to a variety of verbal and nonverbal forms of communication that could be said to show disrespect for a particular group of people, especially those who have encountered historical discrimination, and which now includes any group the liberal establishment has classified as victims. The implications of the paradigm behind the term should not be minimized. We...

    A New York court recently ruled that a Long Island woman who killed her baby in a car accident cannot be convicted because her baby was not a person yet. The Times Union reports Jennifer Jorgensen previously was found guilty of second-degree manslaughter for causing the death of her baby daughter in a car crash. She also was indicted for driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the report. Jorgensen was in her third trimester when the car accident occurred in May 2008. Her daughter was delivered by C-section after...

    Among the things that make America great are grilled cheese, free speech and Beyoncé. But another quality that many often take for granted is the rich mix of cultures that make up this unique country. Immigration has been a highly debated topic in the media and politics. And though some candidates have candidly expressed strong opinions for and against it, there’s no doubt that immigration has profoundly impacted American culture for centuries. The Melting Pot is a place where you can find a Vietnamese supermarket around the corner from a Ukranian diner; a Mexican quinceañera party next to an Indian...

In fact, the number one killer of black Americans is abortion.

    The prevailing social dogma of our time that economic and other disparities among groups are strange, if not sinister has set off bitter disputes between those who blame genetic differences and those who blame discrimination. Both sides ignore the possibility that the groups themselves may differ in their orientations, their priorities, and in what they are prepared to sacrifice for the sake of other things. Back in the early 19th century, an official of the Russian Empire reported that even the poorest Jews saw to it that their daughters could read, and their homes had at least ten...

    Western culture is not transmitted through the genes. It has to be taught to each succeeding generation. To transmit this heritage, we depend on our schools and colleges. Never has a public trust been more misplaced. We are reminded of the rupturing of our cultural pipeline by the current debate over curricular changes at Stanford University. In a speech at Stanford on April 18, Secretary of Education William J. Bennett blasted that University for scrapping its basic course, "Western Thought," which has been required for all freshmen. The "Western Thought" course was introduced in 1980. It was a step toward...

But the answer for Californians it turns out is to provide "free" interpretationservices for litigantsin all cases both criminal and civil by 2017. Despite being gratis, it will actually cost California taxpayers more than the $92 million currently appropriated for administering its court interpreterprogram. Naturally, as noted in the Associated Press article about this policy, California is extending services under pressure from that great purveyor of justice during the Obama era, theDOJ. Merits...

    [...] Todays massive influx of people has been devastating to the middle class. During the low-immigration period from 1948-1973, real median compensation for U.S. workers increased more than 90 percent. By contrast, real average hourly wages were lower in 2014 than they were in 1973, four decades earlier, the report says. And the number of green cards doesnt tell the whole story. In addition to permanent resident green cards, Washington has been handing out temporary work permits, such as H1B and L1 visas, referred to as non-immigrant visas. Immigration reform legislation supported by Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz would...

    "Life is a long series of forgetting. . an abandonment of the knowledge we entered this world with, so natural and obvious to anyone, including a child. What is truth, what is deeply known and felt, what is bestowed on us by our Creator, slowly drains from our minds, like water from a sieve. Sometimes we remember again, usually in bits and pieces, in fragments of memory that pierce the darkness. Like light unfolding into day, we get a hint of what was forgotten; and then we have a choice to make: to keep remembering, or to remain, like an...

    In his fourth book, "American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures in North America," award-winning author Colin Woodard identifies 11 distinct cultures that have historically divided the US. "The country has been arguing about a lot of fundamental things lately including state roles and individual liberty," Woodard, a Maine native who won the 2012 George Polk Award for investigative reporting, told Business Insider. "[But] in order to have any productive conversation on these issues," he added, "you need to know where you come from. Once you know where you are coming from it will help move the...
