I had the pleasure of appearing tonight on The Mark Levin Show. We covered the anti-Israel boycott movement, and why it should matter to conservatives. Thanks to Mark for shining a spotlight on this issue. Thanks also to our friends at The Right Scoop for pulling the audio for us so I could post…

Wendy Davis’ campaign has had its problems. The revelation that her life story of personal struggle and triumph as a single mother was embellished was a game changer. Her campaign has had a communications problem as well, playing media favorites and putting Davis on stage with a shotgun in a Dukakis-in-tank moment. The…

Last week we featured Mark Steyn’s column about forced intellectual conformity on campus: Universities are no longer institutions of inquiry but ‘safe spaces’ where delicate flowers of diversity of race, sex, orientation, ‘gender fluidity’ and everything else except diversity of thought have to be protected from exposure to any unsafe ideas….

Republican Rep. Tom Cotton is challenging incumbent Democrat Mark Pryor in the Arkansas Senate race. It is considered a prime flip opportunity for Republicans. The polling shows Cotton in a strong position (with the usual caveat that there’s a lot of time before the election). Pryor stepped in it when he said a few…

We have seen this movie before. When passing Obamacare in the first instance, the government co-opted the health care and insurance companies it regulated and would regulate into supporting the bill. Their cooperation was critical. Fast forward to the Obamacare sign-up problems. A key player has been the private Enroll America, which itself…

Max Blumenthal is the virulently anti-Israel, anti-“right wing,” author whose writing about a supposed conspiracy by pro-Israeli money men to buy the 2012 election for Bibi Netanyahu was cited with approval by Glenn Miller, the Klan leader and neo-Nazi enthusiast who murdered three people in Overland Park, Kansas.

Did Justice Antonin Scalia just recognize the concept of a legal insurrection? Here’s the definition of the allegedly oxymoronic term: “a rising up against established authority; rebellion; revolt” “in conformity with, or permitted by law.” Here’s part of Scalia’s recent speech in Tennessee, as reported by the Knoxville News (emphasis added): “You’re entitled to criticize…

With the rise of the internet, and blogs, and Twitter, and Facebook, more people are reading more things. Like Upworthy. But there’s “reading” and there’s “reading.” Short-form reading is up, long-form reading is down. TLDNR. That’s my sense of things. There probably is a study out there about it.

I don’t think we’ve written here yet about the Bundy Ranch standoff, mostly because we didn’t have enough information about the situation to make a judgment about what really was going on. And I didn’t have enough time to figure it all out. Was it, as some portrayed, a heroic struggle against…
