National Review & Trump (Cont.)

I want to revisit the important message of National Review‘s issue “Against Trump,” but first I want to make sure no one missed a statement Trump made while speaking Saturday at Dordt College, a Christian Reformed institution in Iowa. Attempting to be funny, Trump commented that his supporters are so loyal that he could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue in New York and shoot somebody and still not lose his voters. According to an eyewitness account, the joke… Read more »

Unions: Members & Leaders

Protesters have finally left the Wisconsin capitol, but estimates are coming in as to the cost of that occupation. We’re learning now it could cost as much as $7.5 million to clean up and repair the damage they have done to the building. Most of that, $6 million, is to restore the marble inside the building; another $1 million to do the same to the outside. As one commentator has noted, Imagine how many teacher positions, textbooks, and new computers the… Read more »

The Real Purveyors of Hatred

I would like to introduce you to Eric Fuller, in case you haven’t yet heard of him. I’m not sure how much coverage this man is getting in the mainstream media, but he just may be the face of the unhinged Left. Fuller was in the crowd in Tucson the morning that Jared Loughner decided to unleash himself on the world. Two of Loughner’s bullets hit Fuller—one in the leg and the other in his back. His injuries were not… Read more »

The Restoring Honor Rally: A Reflection

I wasn’t able to attend the Restoring Honor Rally in D.C. last Saturday, but I know a couple of people who did. They were deeply impressed by what they experienced. The crowd easily exceeded expectations, with estimates running as low as 300,000 [how’s that for a “low”?] up to more than 500,000. The central stage was the Lincoln Memorial. In this picture, you get only some idea of the size of the crowd. A bird’s-eye view provides a better perspective:… Read more »

Race, Sherrod, and Victimhood

Racial issues ought to be receding in America. Yet they have once again intruded onto the national consciousness. It all started [at least the latest round] when the NAACP passed a resolution calling on the Tea Party to excise the racists in their midst. No real evidence was presented that racism was a major problem within the movement, but that apparently was beside the point. I commented on this in my July 14 post, if you want to review it….

Correcting a False Perception

I like Glenn Beck very much. He has helped a lot of people understand some basic principles. That’s why I was disappointed a couple weeks ago when he mentioned Whittaker Chambers in a negative way. I’m convinced it’s due to ignorance of what Chambers accomplished, and that he just passed along something his staff gave him. To help remedy that, I wrote a post for Big Government to correct the false perception he may have. You can see it at… Read more »

Sedition? Are You Serious?

I suppose I should be used to this by now, but it’s hard not to be outraged. Remember when disagreeing with the government was a sign of real patriotism—you know, back in the bad old Bush years? At that time, we were told continually by the Democrats and the media that dissent was a cornerstone of American liberty. Well, there’s a whole lot of dissent going on out there right now. It started as a trickle, became a shocker with… Read more »
