When it Comes to School Shootings, Stop the Bickering and Solve the Problem.

The Chamber of the Florida House of Representatives is a very austere place.  Upon entering, you feel the weight of your constituents urging you to work for the betterment of all Floridians. Despite its loftiness, during session, it is also a place bustling with activity as members scope out other members’ positions on issues and […]

Another Liberal Activist Judge Rules — Congress Can Stop The Madness

In another striking judicial development, Judge William Alsup, a Clinton appointee from San Francisco, issued an injunctive order Jan. 9 prohibiting President Trump from moving forward rescinding President Obama’s DACA order. Although it only applied to established DACA applicants, and left untouched the ban on future applications, the order is offensive nevertheless, and demonstrates the […]

America: The World’s Only Entity That Is Truly Too Big to Fail [+Video]

It has been less than two weeks since Ambassador Nikki Haley’s historic posture at the United Nations. The moment her hand raised in opposition to the tide of anti-Semitism flooding the General Assembly, Haley became a symbol for American resoluteness and the resumption of bold and principled leadership on the part of the United States of America.

An Otherwise Uneventful Desert Evening

It was an evening like any other in Bethlehem. The desert was enveloped in a quiet darkness characteristic of any other night. But this particular evening was colossally different.

Recently, Speaker Paul Ryan was confronted with the following question from a Dominican nun: How do you reconcile your political philosophy (meaning conservatism and its defense of the free market) with Christ’s teaching that we should always stand on the side of the poor and the destitute? Of course, the question presupposes that Speaker Ryan […]

Who’s to Blame for the Events in Charlottesville? Charlottesville!

The events that transpired in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12 were truly vile and disgusting. Set into motion under the guise of protesting the city’s decision to remove the statue of Robert E. Lee from Emancipation Park, the gathering instead devolved into a display of violence and intolerance that struck at the face of democracy […]

The Press Is Free No More

Few institutions are more instrumental to the protections of our liberties than a free and unencumbered press. To this end, John Adams said liberty of the press is “essential to the security of the state.” And Thomas Jefferson, at times a bitter enemy of Adams, nevertheless agreed on this point: “Our liberty depends on the […]
