  • Thumbs Down for Justice Roberts

    Last week’s Supreme Court rulings on Obamacare (Burwell) and same-sex marriage (Obergefell) were enormously dispiriting for reasons beyond the substantive issues of socialized medicine and same-sex marriage.

  • Quo Vadis, America?

    “Natural law — God’s law — will always trump common law,” said Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and a Christian leader in her own right, “God will have the final word in this matter.”

  • Supreme Court Disasters

    Many people are looking at the recent Supreme Court decisions about ObamaCare and same-sex marriage in terms of whether they think these are good or bad policies. That is certainly a legitimate concern, for both those who favor those policies and those who oppose them.

  • On Obamacare, John Roberts Helps Overthrow the Constitution

    Conservatives are dismayed about the Supreme Court’s complicity in rewriting the Affordable Care Act — its ratification of the IRS’s disregard of the statute’s plain and purposeful language. But they have contributed to this outcome. Their decades of populist praise of judicial deference to the political branches has borne this sour fruit.

  • Coolidge Was America’s Most Successful Conservative President

    Americans love the 4th of July—and for good reason. Writing to his wife in July 1776, John Adams hailed the Fourth as “the day of deliverance” and predicted that it would be “celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.” He correctly foresaw these annual celebrations “with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.” On the first anniversary in 1777, the celebrations started, and they have continued ever since.

  • Worse Than the Supremes: Obamacare Economics Is A Taxpayer Bailout in the Cards?

    The judicial decision to uphold all of the president’s health care subsidies may be very disappointing, but the economics of Obamacare are far worse than whatever constitutional mistakes have been committed by the Supreme Court.

  • Papal Nonsense

    Pope Francis’ much ballyhooed encyclical on the environment is, unfortunately, riddled with error, unsound science and unwarranted visions of an imminent apocalypse generated to a large extent by free market economics. Like so much information spread by radical environmentalists, the encyclical makes numerous assertions that are either false or dubious, at best. Let’s examine some of the more egregious flaws in the encyclical:

  • It’s the End of America as We Know It, and America Feels Fine

    Much of the global population doesn’t realize it, but the most powerful nation in the world threw in the towel today on the entire notion of what it means to live in a “land of liberty,” when its Supreme Court ruled in a 6–3 decision the rule of law no longer matters.

  • Total Depravity: Christian Carnage and Western Indifference

    The following represents some of the persecution Christians experienced at the hands of Muslims during the month of April, 2015 alone. One wonders how Western media, politicians, and other foolish talking heads would react if Muslims experienced the same sort and amount of persecution in Western nations in just one month—or even a tithe of it.
