Millions of Illegals Given Work Permits Since 2009

When President Obama went on national television to unveil his plan for executive amnesty, conservatives hung their heads in dismay. This was it. This was the hope and change he’d been talking about.

UVA Prez: RS Story False, But Restrictions Stand

It’s an axiomatic truth that all conservatives understand: once a law is passed, it is virtually impossible to get it repealed. That’s why we wanted to fight Obamacare with such ferocity. We knew that once it became law, the fight to get rid of it would be a bloody battle with little hope of success. But the truth about the ...

Obesity and The Death of Personal Responsibility

Watching American waistlines expand beyond the point of insanity, experts are desperate to find an answer. As such, we’ve seen just about every “reason” under the sun thrown out to explain the epidemic. Too many video games. Too much television. Unhealthy school lunches.

Pesky History Stands In the Way of Liberal Efforts

If there is one great flaw to liberal philosophy, it is that it runs counter to the facts. This is no problem, of course, when you control 99 percent of the media, have Hollywood falling over itself to produce movies that propagandize your efforts, and a base willing to believe anything you say.

Gun Buybacks: An Opportunity for Profit

When states and municipalities began developing “gun buyback” events, they saw them as a way to get dangerous firearms off the streets. With a strict no-questions-asked policy in place, the community was encouraged to come in, turn in their guns, and get some nominal present in return.

Boehner on Dissension: It’s About Fundraising

According to Speaker of the House John Boehner, the pushback he’s been battling from conservative Republicans is entirely explained by Tea Party leaders looking to expand their fundraising coffers. In an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes, Boehner said that the differences between him and the Tea Party had nothing to do with strategy or vision. “It’s a disagreement over tactics, ...

The False Perception of Conservatism

A recent article in Five-Thirty-Eight pointed out the problem of empathy and how Republican candidates don’t seem to have it. Polls show that Mitt Romney, John McCain, Ronald Reagan, and other GOP politicians are perceived as less caring than their Democratic counterparts. While Republicans habitually fare better than Democrats on issues like national defense and fiscal responsibility, it is Democrats ...
