Dick Durbin Questions The Wisdom Of The First Amendment

While many Americans were recognizing the solemn events of the Memorial Day Weekend, the inside the beltway Sunday news shows rolled inexorably on. One US Senator used the opportunity to call question the wisdom of one of the most sacred of all liberties that are protected by the Constitution. In a poorly timed attack on the freedoms that the soldiers we honored fought and died for, Dick Durbin questioned the First Amendment protections enjoyed by bloggers and users of social media:

Why Do We Do This? My Answer to Glenn Beck

At BlogCon in Dallas, many of us had the unique opportunity of being in the studio audience for two tapings of the Glenn Beck show at TheBlaze Studios. During a panel discussion on the harassment and intimidation faced by conservative bloggers, Glenn challenged us.

Big Government Is Bad Government

The recent spate of scandals involving the federal government should not surprise anyone.  While it's important that bad actors in government be held to account, the system corrupts even the best people. If all that comes of this exposed corruption is the firing of a few public employees, nothing will change, and those seeking power over their fellow man will be emboldened.

May Day Protesters, Please Return to the Ash Heap of History

It happened again. A peaceful gathering of truth-seeking progressives was marred by a small group of violent anarchists. These politically unaffiliated youths unexpectedly took over a polite May Day celebration in Seattle, to the horror of the placid, tolerant majority.

No, Congress Is Not Exempt From Obamacare

[Note: This article was written before the July 2013 announcement by President Obama's Office of Personnel Management (OPM), that it would allow Members of Congress and their staff to keep their workplace health insurance subsidies despite having to obtain their coverage in a government health exchange. This special treatment is enjoyed by no other class of Americans. With the OPM announcement, Congress became effectively exempted from ObamaCare. -- Dean Clancy, FreedomWorks]A carefully crafted story in Politico caused a stir this week by claiming that congressional leaders were in talks to exempt staffers from the effects of Obamacare. It isn't true.Will Politico print a retraction? It's more likely that they will merely pat themselves on their collective back, hoist a toast at their favorite DC watering hole, and share a laugh over another episode of successful trolling completed.

Actively Engaging the Opposition: James O'Keefe and Media Matters

By far, one of the most substantive discussions at this year's largest conservative gathering, CPAC, was the panel that followed the screening of Hating Breitbart. The film which focused on the career and character of Andrew Breitbart, showcased his wit, grit and determination.

The Media is Biased. Do Something About It.

Few things are as annoying as the right's collective whining about media bias. Yeah, I just went there. Yes, the media is painfully biased. Yes, the majority of press outlets systematically blackout stories and seem to be in collusion with one another in the painting of the national news picture. Yes, it's unfair and yes, it sucks - hard.
