Tweet Case in point: Here’s the biographical information Peterffy included with the video, which he plans to spend several million dollars running in swing states: Thomas Peterffy grew up in socialist Hungary. Despite the fact that he could not speak English when he immigrated to the United States in 1956, Thomas fulfilled the American dream. [...]

Tweet Modern England makes me weep, but all my long-time readers know of my passion for British history. Watching this Prager U video makes me realize that there may be a connection between my love for England’s past and my believe in America’s future: By the way, for an in-depth analysis of the British Empire’s [...]
Tweet Max Boot reminds conservatives that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, at least not when it comes to crowing about the Leftist habit of embracing dictators. Over the decades, conservatives have done more than their fair share of dancing with bad guys: It occurred to me, re-reading the item I penned [...]
Tweet Two things happened on November 26, two entirely unrelated things, that nevertheless ended up merging into a single thought in my mind: In the modern world, fossil fuels equal liberty. If you cannot assure the people the former, forget about trying to foist upon them the latter. Let me walk you through my thought [...]

Tweet What the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protestors don’t realize (yet) is that they have been suckered into becoming the agents of their own enslavement. Orwell had it so right in defining the Left because he was a man of the Left. The term “Orwellian” now refers to the Left’s use of terms to mean [...]
Tweet This is Ronald Reagan’s 1964 “Time for Choosing” speech. What’s fascinating about it is that, while some of the details are dated, the overarching principles are as fresh today as they were almost 50 years ago. That’s because freedom is an ageless concept, and that’s what Ronald Reagan is articulating. As we watch our [...]
Tweet A couple of weeks ago, I included in a post the statement that Barack Obama is anti-American. A dear and respected friend suggested that I was exaggerating. Obama may have a different vision of or goal for America, he said, but that’s scarcely the same as being anti-American. I’ve been thinking that over for [...]
Tweet All of us have long known that poverty in America isn’t like poverty anywhere else in the world. There really isn’t anything here comparable to the poverty in Haiti, or Calcutta, or large swathes of Africa. Even poor people have televisions and phones. And it’s apparent that a surprising number of people who are [...]
Tweet This clip of today’s Sotomayor hearings may just have hit upon the most important constitutional question that faces us all as we confront our devolution into the Obamatopian State. In this segment, Senator Tom Coburn (R., OK) asks Judge Sotomayor whether she agrees that Americans have a basic right to self defense. The ensuing [...]
Tweet On July 4, 1776, American citizens made their Declaration of Independence known to the world. Although the bulk of the document is a catalog of very specific grievances against George III, the document is remembered for its stirring beginning, describing “unalienable” rights inherent in all human beings, as well as describing a government’s role [...]
Tweet Mary Katharine Ham caught John Kerry finally admitting what Democrats fear most of all: that people will take control over their own destinies, without the elite in government dictating how their hard earned money should be spent. Perhaps if Kerry had ever held a real job and earned the money himself, he might have [...]
Tweet One of the things that puts the Kumbi-ya crowd into an absolute frenzy is President Bush’s refusal to deal directly with murderous dictators. Forgetting the example set by Neville “Peace in Our Time” Chamberlain, this crowd is certain that, if they can just wrest a smile from someone evil, they’ll be halfway to ending [...]
