A Nation Of Fallacies

There are many frustrating aspects of the Gang of Eight amnesty  currently wending its way through Congress. The truncated amendment process, circumscribed debate, and monstrous size of the bill itself-similar in scope to the Obama health care bill so many Republicans purportedly detest-are merely a few of the substantive objections that can be raised against S.744.  However, what has...

Questions Begging For Answers

The answer is simple, it won’t. In fact, the structure of Obamacare rewards employers who fire their American workers in order to hire newly naturalized, i.e. amnestied, immigrants. While the people who need help the least will benefit the most should amnesty become law, those who are already struggling to survive in this distressed...

Opening Salvo

  Debate begins this week on the Gang of Eight amnesty. Much like Obamacare-another legislative monstrosity imposed upon an unwilling American public-this was crafted exclusively by special interests, some of them foreign governments which represent no Americans. The views of those tasked with enforcing-or not enforcing-the law were disregarded, even as those who have...

May Day: Part II (Marx v. Washington)

In this case, a wholesale amnesty which would cost upwards of six trillion dollars in the coming decades. While most of...

It’s not a stage-managed affair crafted by its participants with the intent of obscuring differences and evading questions such as whence do rights derive, and how...

Philadelphia Phreedom/End The Fed

Philadelphia Phreedom/End The Fed

That is Congressman Ron Paul, speaking to a surprisingly large crowd of supporters on the extremely wet lawn of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania the day before today’s Republican presidential primary. The site where this nation’s founding charter was drafted was an apt forum for a candidate whose entire campaign is based upon a...

What Breitbart Left Behind

What Breitbart Left Behind

When Andrew Breitbart died unexpectedly at the beginning of this month he left a void, not only in the conservative movement but in our national political discourse, which is too often characterized by trite cliches and predigested sound bites. Breitbart not only challenged the assumptions of media talking heads, but often changed how mainstream...

Remembering Breitbart

Remembering Breitbart

A man dying in the prime of his life, even as he was ascending to the summit of his vocation, is something that rarely occurs in this country. Even my paternal grandfather, and his son, i.e. my own father, whose lives were tragically cut short by bad genes-as well some unwise personal decisions-lived long...
