Rep. Barletta: "Our agents should not be babysitters. They should be doing the job they are trained to do-- protect our borders. Asking them to do otherwise is an operational flaw."

Trevor Loudon’s America: A Path to Victory

John Kirkwood on his time with Trevor Loudon, and a proposal for victory in 2016.

Trevor Loudon’s America: A Path to Victory

There was an old saying that if you wanted to know about America, “Ask a Frenchmen.” I’d be comfortable with that if we were talking about Alexis De Tocqueville and Frederic Bastiat, but nowadays I’d prefer if we asked an expert on Communism from New Zealand. Trevor Loudon is best known as the source that exposed Van Jones as an open Communist. Glenn Beck, a frequent reader of Loudon’s blog (http://www.trevorloudon.com/), first saw his reporting on Van Jones and pursued it with such vigor, the Obama “Green Jobs” advisor was forced to resign.

In Today's America, 'Mainstream' Means Left

Mainstream means shrugging your shoulders at $17 trillion in federal debt, $4 trillion in federal spending, and a tax code of over 73,000 pages.

In Today's America, 'Mainstream' Means Left

Just when Tea Party obituaries were being sounded around the country, Washington fixture of 42 years, Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran, loses to upstart Tea Party candidate Chris McDaniel.

Why I Hate Soccer

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 17 June 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Selwyn Duke: "But why do human beings, with their particular anatomical configuration, want to use their feet for a task performed infinitely better by the hands? It’s no wonder the scoring in soccer tends to hover around Joe Biden I.Q. territory."

Why I Hate Soccer

This article will be a departure from my usual fare. I will not claim there is some Absolute Truth deeming soccer the bane of humanity’s sports. I do not contend that some objective, divine standard places it in Dante’s ninth circle of athletic arenas, though I wish I could. Sport is a matter of taste, and, as G.K. Chesterton said (okay, so this isn’t a complete departure for me — I’m quoting Chesterton), “There are no uninteresting subjects, only uninterested people.” I get it. And I, I confess, like golf. So mock away. But in this piece I’ll ditch the Mr. Spock act, let my human side emote, may even contradict myself, and will say something.

Obama’s Cloward-Piven Immigration Strategy

Written by Steve Deace on Tuesday, 17 June 2014. Posted in Steve Deace, Opinion

Named after the two Leftists who authored it, the strategy here is simple — flood the welfare state with needy people until it reaches its breaking point, and the people have no choice but to accept Marxism as a substitute.

Obama’s Cloward-Piven Immigration Strategy

The American people have been inundated with stories the past few days of a tragic humanitarian crisis. At least 100,000 kids from Latin America have illegally flooded across the border. Of course, the Obama Regime is claiming this is a result of our lack of “immigration reform” (aka scamnesty). And they’re pretending to be surprised by the whole thing.

Iraq Agonistes

The Bush-Obama foreign policy has left Iraq a disaster, and ISIS now threatens to destroy the entire nation.

Iraq Agonistes

I remember how the Vietnam War seemed to drag on for years without resolution, from Lyndon Johnson’s initial expansion in 1964, after he was elected in his own right through his second term, marked by many marches in Washington, D.C. demanding the U.S. get out. It took Nixon’s and Kissinger’s efforts to secure an end to the conflict in 1973.

What to do When Forced to Perform 'Gay Weddings'

Written by J. Matt Barber on Monday, 16 June 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

It won't be long before the progressives demand that churches perform homosexual "weddings." When that becomes law, here's how the church should react.

Churches in Denmark are now compelled, by law, to host same-sex “weddings.”

The Paltrow Of Politics (Minus Looks & Ethics)

Written by Ilana Mercer on Monday, 16 June 2014. Posted in Opinion, Ilana Mercer

The Left pines for Hillary in 2016. But, just as she bungled Benghazi and hoped to bomb Syria, she'd complete the destruction of America.

The Paltrow Of Politics (Minus Looks & Ethics)

Hillary Rodham Clinton has done some "conscious uncoupling" from reality. The term was disgorged by a celebrity, Gwyneth Paltrow, to announce a separation from her spouse. In the same breath, the actress bemoaned her gilded, glamorous life, and offended America’s military sacred cow by comparing the cyber-attacks she endures to the experience of war.

Clover and The Fourth Amendment

If the state’s armed goons can waylay people and search them “just because” then there is in principle no limit to their Authority over us, "right thinking" progressives regard as acceptable.

Clover and The Fourth Amendment

A Clover – EPautos’ term for people of the left and right persuasion, who love government force and despise individual rights – wrote the following love note to me in response to a post about Florida cops randomly stopping people and forcing them to submit to an inspection of the contents of their beverage cups (see here for the news story).

TIME Magazine’s Tyrants of the Year

Written by Bradlee Dean on Sunday, 15 June 2014. Posted in Opinion, Bradlee Dean

TIME magazine has long been one of the progressives' favorite propaganda organs and its long-time adoration of tyrants and dictators is revealing.

TIME Magazine’s Tyrants of the Year

“It has been in every age that it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter, who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both, to deceive and overawe the People.” – Unknown (2 Corinthians 11:14)

It is Time to Pray with Your Legs

The only reason we are losing this country is because “works” has become a five-letter word in the Christian vernacular. Without a corresponding action prayer is wasted ammunition.

President Chris Christie?

Written by Alan Caruba on Sunday, 15 June 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Despite the bridgegate scandal, Gov. Chris Christie has held up under scrutiny and remains a potential GOP contender in 2016.

President Chris Christie?

A fatal crash on the George Washington Bridge this morning caused major backups, trapping commuters for up to three hours and stalling traffic back to the Garden State Parkway and other highways leading to the bridge. After Gov. Chris Christie spent two hours answering every question reporters asked following the revelation that an aide—whom he fired immediately—had engineered a comparable problem I had no problem believing he had nothing to do with it.
