Will President Trump push the 14th Amendment debate to SCOTUS?

PragerU on American values and the design of One Nation, with life and liberty for all

WASHINGTON. PragerU’s latest video “American values”  is little more than historical fiction. American Values, Dennis Prager claims in the video, are a result of America’s unique position. As a country, we are not a nation of one people, like Italy which is only 7.5% non-Italian born (a percentage that is increasing with refugee immigration). We ...

Electoral College Map 2016

The very important historical memory of the Electoral College

WASHINGTON: The Electoral College intent is not to prevent democracy. It is (or was) to elect a chief presiding officer over a union of sovereign republics.

The Supreme Court Confirmation by Senator Sasse and Several Dwarfs

WASHINGTON: Why does Congress have hearings for people only to parade them through Senate Judiciary Committee-chaos? All for the examination as to their qualifications. The Supreme Court Justices certainly require more than an educated person. As we see with all our Supremes, there is a certain gravitas of intelligence. The Senators examining SCOTUS nominee Judge ...

Liberals Dark Heart, Political Dagger, Paul H. Yarborough, liberals, equality

The irrational concept of equality: A political dagger aimed at Liberals dark heart

WASHINGTON: Conservatives should do more than protest liberal electioneering of equality, they should explain it for what it is.

It has the care ...
