No one will ever accuse Mark Levin of not getting to the point.

The top-tier national radio host has several best selling books, including The Liberty Amendments, which I reviewed in 2013. Levin described his project as follows:

Obama Press Conf Iran Deal end July 15 2015

The Obama administration thinks it outsmarted opponents of the Iran deal by running to the U.N. Security Council for international approval before Congress’s review period even started.

It was a typical Obama F-U to his domestic opponents.

Since Congress now needs a super-majority to block the deal, the outcome is uncertain. The Obama...

charles clarke civil asset forfeiture

There’s a simple explanation for why civil asset forfeiture laws are coming under fire—they ruin lives.

Not in the way a hefty speeding ticket or 7 am-on-the-dot tow “ruins lives,” but in a real, “my life savings are gone and I don’t know how I’m going to pay for my next...

It’s often said that the Second Amendment makes all the others possible.

Let’s take a step back.

The Second Amendment is good, I’ll admit.  But as readers know, the Third Amendment is just as — if not more — important:

When the 18th amendment was ratified

This day in 1919 was irrefutably one of the darkest days in American history — the day the 18th amendment to the Constitution was ratified, making Prohibition the law of the land.

Forever the hallmark of nanny-statism run amok, Prohibition was a progressive dream come true — an amendment to the...

Wow. It’s not often that I can say it but this new video from the GOP is really powerful.

Whoever made this video deserves a promotion. The ad uses an audio track of Hillary Clinton criticizing George W. Bush’s so-called “imperial presidency.”
