Obama’s get-out-the-vote director sued to keep underprivileged white woman out of law school

Talk about a war on women. Buffy Wicks, who leads the national get-out-the-vote effort for President Obama's re-election campaign, sued to keep an underprivileged woman from attending the University of Washington law school – because the woman is white.

1970s sitcom star Jimmy J.J. Walker – known for his catch-phrase “Dyn-o-mite!” – said recently the “good times” only occur in traditional marriage.

Sen. Tom Coburn Unloads on our Affirmative Action President

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-OK, answered a recent question by saying Barack Obama is promoting government dependence because federal programs promoted him to the presidency.

Obama’s Homeland Security Dept. Promotes Al Jazeera

National security has fallen so far under Barack Obama that a high-ranking official in the Department of Homeland Security is berating American cable companies for not carrying Osama bin Laden’s favorite television network.

A Reason for the Left to Hate MLK

Earlier I noted the reasons Martin Luther King Jr. was not a conservative. He was not a New Left street radical, either.

Sotomayor’s Racialist Judicial Activism

This article originally appeared as the weekend lead for Friday, June 26, 2009. Five months later, it was chosen for inclusion in Opposing Viewpoints, America's Prisons, vol. 2.

An American Renaissance Man

On Saturday evening, the physical life of Jack Kemp came to an end, but his contributions to American political and intellectual life have never been more timely. An advocate of a strong economy, missile defense, and broadening the base of the Republican Party by including minorities, Kemp’s past may prove the conservative movement’s prologue. A man as forward-looking as Kemp would appreciate … [Read more...]
