When Cities Fail to Control Riots, the Federal Government Should Intervene

Conservatives should generally support state and local sovereignty, but when states and cities can’t control violent mobs, that’s not an exercise of sovereignty, and the federal government should step in to protect American citizens and property. The following is a transcript of the above video: Hey guys, hope you’re doing well. I just want to […]

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the Face of Abortion

just as I’m not going to celebrate her death, I’m also not going to celebrate Ginsburg’s life, and join in this rather bizarre elevation of her to sainthood across the political and social spectrum. Few jurists have been more wrong, more often, and more loudly, than Ginsburg, and with more horrible, real-world consequences. And worse, this cannot be written off as simply a failure of judgment, when it’s quite clearly a failure of values.

Debunking the Lies about Trump’s Social Security Plan

The latest scare tactic of the left is to tell seniors that Trump’s Social Security plan will bankrupt the program in just a few short years. This is false. And I don’t mean it’s an economic fallacy, that different economists can analyze differently and disagree on. I mean it’s just a lie which results from people taking his words out of context, and then ignoring the important parts, because there’s an election and the left wants to scare seniors. It is true that if you were to eliminate payroll taxes that Social Security would go bankrupt within a few years, but ONLY IF YOU DIDN’T PAY FOR IT SOME OTHER WAY! Trump’s plan is not simply to eliminate Social Security taxes, but to replace funding for Social Security directly from the government’s general fund. And if anything, this would be much more progressive. The 12% payroll tax that presently funds Social Security is regressive, imposed as it is on all income up to $137,000, regardless of your tax bracket. By shifting the revenue source to the general funds, which are paid for disproportionately by higher earners, the tax burden of Social Security would be moved away from the poor and middle class, and onto the wealthy. But please everyone, don’t let facts get in the way of useful lies.

Understanding Today’s Two Religious Liberty Supreme Court Decisions

The Supreme Court issued two religious liberty decisions today, one concerning whether religious organizations are required to provide contraceptive coverage in their insurance plans under Obamacare, and one concerning the extent to which religious organizations are immune from liability in employment discrimination cases. And as usual, the media understands neither.

It’s Not 1984 in America. It’s Fahrenheit 451.

What we’re seeing in today’s culture war is not government oppressing us and attacking free speech.  We’re doing it to ourselves.  That’s arguably much worse. “Every record has been destroyed or falsified. Every book re-written, every picture has been repainted. Every statue and street building has been renamed. Every date has been altered and the […]

Take Down the Confederate Statues, For Goodness Sake!

It’s one thing to debate the proper place of men who did great things and incidentally owned slaves, like Washington, Jefferson, and Columbus, or who, post-slavery, still harbored racist feelings of white supremacy that remained prevalent, especially among the “enlightened” class, such as Woodrow Wilson, all of whom arguably get more of a pass than they should. But Lee and the Confederates are honored specifically for fighting in defense of the institutions of slavery and white supremacy.
