As the case of the ex-UVa worker who pled guilty Tuesday to attempted abduction and sexual assault of a 19-year-old reminds us: liberals claim to care about the safety of women, yet they leave them to their own devices (or whistles and call-boxes) to protect themselves from unimaginable horror.Read More
Obama calls on us to "Reject these voices" that warn of tyranny. Now we face the Benghazi cover-up, IRS scandal and AP phone records seizure. Ignore these voices, is more like what the President is saying. Pretend you don't hear their warning, and then dismiss evidence that those warnings were not so crazy after all.Read More
The media--and the Obama Administration--know that if the bombings are tied to radical Islam (and the only way you can say they weren't is to ignore the mounting evidence), that will open up a broader discussion in this country about the increasing threat here from those who have been radicalized--how it's happening, who is doing it, and who is financing it. That's actually a discussion that needs to happen, yet the media and the administration seem determined not to let it.Read More
Can we really bemoan the state of politics, the tendency of our leaders to let us down, to lie to us, to cheat on us, and to act in their own personal best interest at the expense of ours, when we have a pretty good expectation from their track record that they are going to do all of the above?Read More
Today attorney Ted Olson argued in the Supreme Court that those who voted in California for traditional marriage must have a problem with "those people."Read More
I want my boys to strive for more. To be men of honor in a world that

I have been saying for a long time: voters want someone who stands courageously for what he believes in. And moderates and independents aren't just looking for "Democrat-lite."Read More
Oh, the drama. Sequester is hardly the equivalent of war, though by threatening to cancel the Easter Egg Roll, Obama clearly wants it to been seen that way.Read More
Rats. Dems are finally on to a little problem with Ashley Judd in KY: "She doesn’t fit the damn state.” Read More
I'm hesitant to say anything adulatory about Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) these days after his appalling reaction to Senator Rand Paul's (R-KY) courageous filibuster, but I've got to give him credit. He's exposing the Democrats' hypocrisy on guns, and their real motive: banning gun. Shocking, I know.
Graham is pushing a bill that would require the mentally incompetent to be added to the National Instant Criminal Background System, so that in the event that they attempt to purchase any type of gun, they would be prevented from doing so. This is taking the real issue behind many of the horrific mass shootings in this country head on.
According to Fox News, Graham illustrates the need for this measure with a compelling story: A South Carolina woman, Alice Bolan, threatened to kill President Bush in 2005. She pleaded not guilty, by reason of insanity. Yet this year, she bought a gun legally, and tried to shoot someone. That's, pardon the expression, nuts.
The Left claims if conservatives really care about the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, they would support banning certain types of weapons--many of which are quite popular for self-defense. They know perfectly well that Senator Diane Feinstein's (D-CA) ban will do virtually nothing to limit gun violence. Yet they ignore an issue that could bring about positive results--the issue of those whom we have prior knowledge to be mentally incompetent, unstable or violent from being prevented from purchasing weapons.
Why do they ignore the issue? Because it distracts from their real goal: banning guns. They want to exploit the emotion around the Sandy Hook shootings to guilt and shame elected representatives into supporting their unconstitutional, counterproductive approach. And they have the audacity to say conservatives don't care about the nation's school children.
The Left wasn't too pleased with a bunch of women on stage at CPAC talking politics. They like to think that's their turf.
I tend to think the American people do understand the threat to freedom, and that's why Rand's moment will be remembered as one of the more noble, and least political of our recent Congressional history.Read More
I haven't been this angry in a long time. After Amanda Collin's testimony in front of a Senate panel, we get
galling, patronizing comments from Democrat Sen. Evie Hudak as
she lectures Ms. Collin's on what was her inevitable doom, weapon or no
Colorado's ban on concealed carry moves along, leaving in its wake stunned heartbreak on the part of young women realizing how very intentionally the government dismisses their safety in favor of the "comfort" of others--comfort, by the way, that is entirely illusory. This bill will ensure that far from being comfortable, students, particularly women, will be sitting ducks.Read More
Michelle Obama's appearance on ABC's Good Morning Appearance makes it painfully clear that the administration is using the senseless death of children to further its political agenda of banning certain guns.Read More
Look, there is no doubt about it: colleges and universities, with their leftist course offerings and mandatory freshman "sensitivity training" orientation (otherwise known as: how to have any kind of sex with anyone, anytime, anyplace) are the final stage of the leftist indoctrination program that began in kindergarten.Read More
