  • Pro-Life People: When Debating Abortion, Avoid This Embarrassingly Common Logical Mistake

    Don’t you hate it when your honest clarification question is mistaken for the start of a fallacious argument? Almost every time in the last year I’ve talked with pro-choice students at a pro-life outreach, I’ve had an exchange that goes something like this: Pro-Choice Student: The fetus isn’t even a person. Tim: We agreed earlier that a newborn is a person. Do you think a fetus is a person right before birth? Pro-Choice Student: *sigh* I know where you’re going with this, you’re going to try to trap me by asking if it’s a person right before that, or right...

    Monday’s big election law news came from the Supreme Court’s penultimate decision of the term upholding Arizona’s congressional districts. But before handing down its last three decisions, the court made voting-rights advocates happy by deciding not to review a different election case. “Arizona citizens can continue to participate in voter registration drives without worrying about not having proof of citizenship documents,” Shirley Sandelands, of the League of Women Voters of Arizona, said in a statement Monday. The case, Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al., was about whether Arizona and Kansas could require voters to prove their citizenship...

    San Francisco will close borders to talented and artistic teens looking for a free and prestigious arts education at the city’s Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, a decision derided by many students, parents and teachers, yet unanimously approved by the school board Tuesday. The decision ends the long-standing practice of allowing transfer students from other school districts to audition and gain admission to the high school, considered among the region’s most elite public art schools. The new policy will apply to admission for fall 2016. Current out-of-town students would be allowed to complete high school there, as well as...

My new Democrat opponent, Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, is one of the strongest ObamaCare supporters in Washington. She even said her vote for ObamaCare was the one she "was most proud about."

As you know, one criminal who committed a heinous act had sometimes sported the symbol, so, the thinking…er, feeling…goes, it should be sent to cultural Siberia.

That moment has already arrived. Just last week, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issued a report that found that co-signers have a rough time getting released from their promises to repay private student loans....

The term “assault rifle” is not a catch-all to describe any gun you think is scary; it actually has a very specific meaning. The term “assault rifle” is almost always used to describe a selective fire weapon designed for...

The figure is far higher than initially reported. While the payments to Sidney Blumenthal may not reflect any apparent conflict of interest, his work with Brock's liberal advocacy and media groups was a focus of his high-profile deposition on Tuesday before the House Benghazi committee. Republicans' rationale for the questioning was that his financial and political...

Yet the gun rights that they believe are guaranteed by law may very well be an illusion.. That's because we have allowed lawyers instead of language professionals to interpret the Constitution of the United States. Ask any high school English teacher to parse the Second Amendment, and they will say that it does not prohibit common-sense restrictions on the purchase and possession of guns, in spite of the National Rifle Association's claim to the contrary.

It's aptly titled; she makes the case that it is goodbye to the America we know and love if we don't stop diluting our population with people who don't love America, don't respect our Constitution and laws, don't even speak our language, and commit all sorts of unspeakable crimes. "Adios, America!" brims with the scathing humor that has made Coulter's previous 10 books bestsellers. Coulter gives hundreds of specific examples of major crimes committed by...

    Monday while President Barack Obama was answering questions at a town hall with YSEALI Fellows, an exchange program for community leaders from ASEAN, The Association of Southeast Asian Nations, he said his administration has restored the Untied States as the “the most respected country on earth.” Obama said, “People don’t remember, but when I came into office, the Untied States in world opinion ranked below China and just barley above Russia, and today once again, the Untied States is the most respected country on earth. Part of that I think is because of the work we did to reengage the...

    The political left in America is blind to the agenda, desires, and reality of Sharia law.Liberals are literally scoffing at the professed desires of Islamists and jihadi radicals who want to murder in plain daylight hundreds of citizens for drawing a cartoon of the historical person Mohammed. They do so in the aftermath of two jihadis having attempted to carry out just such a plan. The left does not recognize Sharia as a threat to America. The New York Times in 2011 wrote:"The crusade against Shariah undermines American democracy, ignores our country's successful history of religious tolerance and assimilation,...

    Author’s Note: Please watch this video before reading the column. Dear Scott Burgess: I am in receipt of your message saying that I am “A douche bag and an embarrassment to our university.” It’s been several weeks since you’ve written and I have been busy. But now that I have the time I wish to respond to your concerns that my weekly political column is causing embarrassment to our university and to higher education in general. Back in 2013, a reader named Edward wrote to tell me that I was the biggest embarrassment to higher education in the entire country....

    racist: [rey-sist] verb (used without object) The characteristic shrill and repeated distress call made by the Common North American Lib Loon (Liberalis Vacuous). It is typically sounded, ad nauseum, when the birds feel cornered, which happens often due to their innately poor sense of direction and unawareness of surroundings. The vexing sound is soon loudly repeated by all other distressed Lib Loons across a wide territory. Most other bird genus, such as the once-numerous Common Sensiblem and Haveworktoduem, have learned to largely ignore this useless sound. This contrasts with a highly symbiotic species, Mainstreamum Mediaus, which is known to fly...

    At Valdosta State University last month, activist Eric Sheppard led a protest of flag-stomping participants and was promptly met by veteran and former Playboy model Michelle Manhart in a skirmish that captured headlines. The defacing of the American flag by stomping on it caught on and became known as the “Eric Sheppard challenge.” Now, the wanted activist Sheppard has been arrested for possessing a handgun in his backpack on the Valdosta State University campus. WCTV reports: Valdosta police have confirmed that Eric Sheppard was arrested in Tampa, Florida Thursday morning without incident. Sheppard is widely known for stomping and walking...

    President Obama's second-term agenda, it seems, is in the hands of the courts. Same-sex marriage. Obamacare. Climate change. And now immigration. And in many cases, there is significant doubt about whether his signature initiatives will stand legal scrutiny. The latest blow to Obama's second-term plans came Tuesday when a federal appeals court in New Orleans denied the administration's request to move forward with implementing his expanded executive action on immigration to defer deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants. Texas and 25 other states have sued to have it shelved. The drama is sure to ensue for months, writes the Post's...

    Annd it came to pass that the earth turned and another campaign season spun into view and the liberal commentariat rose from its siesta to begin its usual moping about the perverse political powers wielded by the Fox News Channel. This time, the sentinel waking the commentariat to the alleged Fox menace is not a liberal but a self-described conservative, Bruce Bartlett. Bartlett, a prolific writer on politics and economics who has worked for congressional Republicans (Ron Paul and Jack Kemp), Republican presidents, (Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush) and conservative and libertarian policy shops, broke with his party a...

    Most Americans hold either liberal or conservative positions on most matters. In many instances, however, they would be hard pressed to explain their position or the position they oppose. But if you can't explain both sides, how do you know you're right? At the very least, you need to understand both the liberal and conservative positions in order to effectively understand your own. I grew up in a liberal world -- New York, Jewish and Ivy League graduate school. I was an 8-year-old when President Dwight Eisenhower ran for re-election against the Democratic nominee, Adlai Stevenson. I knew nothing about...
