    Thanks in very large part to The Donald, the illegal immigration issue has come raging to the fore in the consciousness of a great many American citizens (and others) in recent times. People are not only thinking about the issue, but they have started talking about it, oftentimes with great passion. And this is so regardless of which side of the dispute the contenders align with. It seems there are two basic, contending schools of thought, both premised in the Fourteenth Amendment, which says: Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction...

    Last night I posted some of this on the thread about Trump's IA speech. I got so many requests to make this its own thread, that I enhanced and developed it a little, but I've said about the same thing for months. If you look at the latest New Hampshire poll, for example, you find that Trump is leading big---but is leading in almost every single category and subgroup: women, men, younger, older, conservative, liberal, moderate. That is truly Amazing. He's preferred by almost 40% of HISPANICS in the latest Nevada poll. In national polls, he's up 3:1 over his...

    Matthew 15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. The polls are the story even though they are all useless. Since I said Trump and Cruz would be the leaders, during Trumps first obituary over Mexicans; when all the pundiots were claiming the frontrunners were Bush, Walker and Rubio we should look at why they were so utterly wrong. The primary reason they were so far off is that their poll models are as bad as Global Warming models. When you use phones as...

    The article is the typical "these poor people are sick, they need help, we need funding to study pedos" BS. Skim it. But check out the (closed) comments section. Very interesting. Some of the commenters admit to being pedophiles. Also, commenters debate the differences between sexual interest in a mature LOOKING teen versus the prepubescent children. The article has one good point. Maybe we should allow pedophiles to get help from shrinks without them being forced to report directly, as long as the pedophile doesn't admit to actually touching a child. That is a good subject for debate - maybe...

We voted conservatives in to de-fund if not repeal Obamacare and to stop Obama’s executive amnesty and to stop Obama and the democrats in general. What have they done? They screwed over the conservatives we voted in, declared war on the conservative voters, and gave Obama every damned thing he asked for. Screw George Will! Screw...

    As penetration of social media plays an increasingly important role in presidential politics, I thought it might be useful to point out where the currently announced candidates stand with regard to Twitter followers. Ideally, I would like to update this weekly so that we can see who is gaining the most followers, as that is an indication of momentum. Whereas, if a candidate’s follower growth is “flat”, that is an indicator that the candidate may be losing momentum. Now some caveats here. Some politicians have been known to boost the number of their followers with bogus accounts. For instance, Shrillary...

    As a 'damn Yankee' -- that is, a Northerner who came to the South and didn't leave -- the Confederate Flag has never really held meaning for me. I understood that for most who displayed it, it meant a reverence for the heritage of the South and expressed the rebellious spirit I so often find, and admire, here. Then the events of the shooting in South Carolina played out. Dylann Root was found to have embraced that flag, but for different and objectionable reasons of true racism.

To set the context: Most conservatives and most economists indeed most Americans, agree that fair trade is economically beneficial. By the Milton Friedman analysis, those who efficiently produce goods do so and trade them for goods made by people who make other goods more efficiently. Everybody wins. As a theoretical and even practical analysis this is something we conservatives obviously favor but it is not something...

    General Dwight D. Eisenhower arrived in London to command Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF) for the last five months of planning for D-Day. During that time he achieved much more than the oft repeated portrayal of someone managing a political/military alliance. Though he never led troops in combat, his leadership sustained many unprecedented initiatives for the successful Normandy landings. The air assault exemplifies the frightful uncertainties plaguing this “Day of Days”. The night before D-Day, 20,400 American and British paratroopers dropped behind the Normandy beaches from 1,250 C-47 aircraft plus gliders. This massive assault was attempted just 17 years...

    Proverbs 12:20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy. Once again we find the Establishmedia caught with its hand in the Corruption Jar. George Stephanopoulos has once again shown how the media is nothing but an arm of the DNC. It is not so much a revelation as it is a confirmation of this fact. It simply underlines how the Leftwing Media is an enemy of freedom and democracy which manipulates the dialogue to maintain and advance the Marxist agenda. It shows we have moved from moral relativism to...

    On December 18, 2014, Barack Obama officially began the war on police as he signed an Executive Order establishing the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. Since the signing of this Executive Order, 55 Officers have been killed in the line of duty. Yet, this mattered little to Obama who justified his Executive Order as he spoke about “the distrust that exists between too many police departments and too many communities – the sense that in a country where our basic principle is equality under the law, too many individuals, particularly young people of color, do not feel they...

    We send good conservative people to Washington, DC. Most go wobbly, rino or worse. Oppression is on the rise. Institutions that worked so well to keep us free for so long are powerless to stop a rampaging executive branch. What happened? We stopped maintaining our republic. There isn’t a worldly creation that doesn’t need continual upkeep and renewal. Without regular maintenance to our marriages, autos, homes, bodies and souls, they will degrade and eventually cease to operate, or will ill-serve their intended purposes. Everything not consciously maintained and reinvigorated will degrade and spoil. The ancients were aware of this as...

    On Friday, the Pentagon raised the threat level across all military bases and compounds within the United States to “Force Protection Bravo” in response to the “increased and predictable threat of terrorism”, announced Captain Jeff Davis of U.S. Northern Command. The threat level was raised after FBI Director James Comey admitted that ISIS has thousands of sympathizers currently living inside the country ready to wage jihad. The FBI has also ordered agents to put under 24/7 surveillance more than one hundred U.S. residents that are considered possible terror threats. Officials from the FBI told ABC News that agents have been...

    Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Throughout the week Pam Geller has been singled out as someone who unfairly provoked Muslims into attacking her by having a Mohamhead drawing contest. Nobody will disagree that to Islam drawing a picture of their death cult leader is the same as poking a lion with a stick, the question is should she. The secular answer according to the media is mostly no, she should not yell fire in a crowded theater, in her case the theater is on fire while...

    “American liberalism today”, writes Jonah Goldberg, “sees no realm of human life that is beyond political significance, from what you eat to what you smoke to what you say. Sex is political. Food is political. Sports, entertainment, your inner motives and outer appearance, all have political salience for liberal fascists”. While Liberal fascism differs from classical fascism, what unites them are their “emotional or instinctual impulses, such as the quest for community, a faith in the perfect ability of man, the authority of experts, and an obsession with the cult of action, and the need for an all-powerful state”, notes...

  • To Those Who Fear A Runaway Article V State Amendments Convention.

    Vanity (A good one)
    A couple of prominent conservatives have expressed concern over the possibility of a ‘runaway’ Article V state amendments convention. Such is their anxiety that runaway tyranny from Rome-on-the-Potomac pales in comparison to the possible horrors of the states getting together to relieve their people from oppression. Are these concerns fact based or irrational or somewhere in between? An important, and likewise extra-congressional vestige of the federal system of 1787, and quite similar to an Article V state amendments convention in its constitutional foundation remains in force today. It is the familiar Electoral College (EC). Like the state amendments convention, the...

    Two leading newspapers have posted incorrect reports regarding the role of Free Republic in the dissemination of a bogus story about an alleged pre-existing spinal injury to Freddie Gray that contributed to his death in Baltimore police custody. Those incorrect reports are being repeated by blogs. The Baltimore Sun falsely reported: "The Free Republic website said Wednesday that Gray's "life-ending injuries to his spine may have possibly been the result of spinal and neck surgery that he allegedly received a week before he was arrested." The article also said the injury was the result of a car accident and cited...
