First Monday in October: New Supreme Court term begins
The Supreme Court is starting its new year, with Justice Neil Gorsuch on board for his first full term.

The Left Hates You. Act Accordingly
Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead.

How the Democrats Set Up Puerto Rico for Disaster
What New Orleans, Houston and Puerto Rico have in common.

Carr: Left cries 1st Amendment only when convenient

What about the Christian bakers in Oregon who were sued out of business for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding? Or the clerk in Kentucky (a Democrat by the way) who refused to issue a marriage license to a gay couple? Don’t they have the same First Amendment rights as the Beautiful People?
