Now I’m Only Going to Say This Once: The Three-Fifths Compromise

Ed Schultz closes his eyes to history. While chiding Glenn Beck for his cherishing the U.S. Constitution, MSNBC talk show host Ed Schultz repeated one of the most oft-repeated lies about the Founding Fathers: they considered blacks less than fully human. In an episode of “Psycho Talk,” Schultz blasted Beck for saying “Progressives” believe individuals are the problem, and “in Samuel Adams’ … [Read more...]

Valerie Jarrett: The Next Van Jones

I was gratified to learn Sean Hannity mentions this article in his newest book, Conservative Victory: Defeating Obama's Radical Agenda. In chapter two, Sean gives a brief overview of Jarrett and Marilyn Katz, among others. This article has a great deal more background information about these women, as they are (thankfully) not the book's focus. I'm proud and pleased that Sean Hannity cites this … [Read more...]

IT MUST MARK A NEW LOW IN PRESIDENTIAL HISTORY when the fact that someone is a self-described Communist is not the most damning thing that can be said of a presidential adviser.

Although the media focused on her inappropriate attire, police … [Read more...]

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...]

White Devils Strike New Orleans

Weeks after leftists began claiming President Bush’s environmental policies and budget cuts caused Hurricane Katrina’s devastation – and that Bush did not dispatch federal aid workers to Louisiana more quickly because of the victims’ skin color – the Left’s politics of perpetual demonization have reached their logical conclusion: one seasoned race-baiter has accused the president of ordering … [Read more...]

A Troubling Presence at a Funeral

Patriotic Americans will always cherish their memories of Ronald Reagan’s strong and courageous leadership during the Cold War. However, his funeral at the National Cathedral may uncap different emotions. Among those the Reagan family has invited to the ecumenical service is Mohammad Magid, a D.C.-area Muslim imam with disturbing ties to suspected terrorists. Magid, who was born and educated in … [Read more...]
