Get the DOJ Out of our Restrooms!

From the right to abortion to “the separation of church and state,” the nation's courts seem to be in the habit of inventing new “rights,” entitlements, and emanations of penumbrae to justify their predetermined decisions. In that spirit, I propose a new legal doctrine: the separation of restroom and state. This novel concept is inspired by the Obama administration's decision to force the … [Read more...]

New Proof of Perjury, Obstruction in Black Panther Case?

A series of major new developments threaten to expose the full extent of the Obama administration’s role in dismissing charges against the New Black Panther Party, an investigation that could reveal obstruction of justice and perjury. Most significantly, Christopher Coates, who was head of the Justice Department’s Voting Rights section at the time and suggested the case proceed, will testify … [Read more...]

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. The young MLK rejected Marxism: During the Christmas holidays of 1949 I decided to spend my spare time reading Karl Marx to try to understand the appeal of communism for many people. For the first time I carefully scrutinized Das Kapital and The Communist Manifesto. I also … [Read more...]

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. The inclusion is a special honor for me. Not only is the Opposing Viewpoints series in nearly every high school library in the country, but it provides an invaluable service: fairly representing conflicting views on an … [Read more...]

Socialism We Can Believe In

Now that a 2001 public radio interview has surfaced to confirm The One has plotted to redistribute middle class wealth since the beginning of his political career, the media are in overdrive to save their savior. In a burst of “news” stories culled directly from the talking points of the George Soros-funded Media Matters, a string of reporters have accused the McCain/Palin campaign of … [Read more...]

Decoding Immigration Doublespeak

“The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right names” – Old Chinese proverb. The elite media have always been out of touch with American values, and their reporting has often been at odds with reality. (See “Offensive, Tet.”) However, their coverage of the last week’s massive pro-illegal immigration rallies bordered (no pun intended) on the Orwellian, virtually requiring one to … [Read more...]

Cheapening Coretta Scott King’s Legacy

IF LAURA INGRAHAM WRITES A FOLLOW-UP BOOK, IT SHOULD BE TITLED, SHUT UP AND MOURN! Yesterday, the Left again chose division over reconciliation, bitterness over harmony, and the transient over the transcendent at the funeral of Coretta Scott King. For the third time in as many years, leftists politicized a funeral service. And the most outspoken partisans present were a failed former president and … [Read more...]
