The Constitution Had Nothing To Do With It

The worst part of the Supreme Court’s redefinition of marriage is the failure to connect this decision to the Constitution. Even the reckless ROE  V. WADE case was based on a “right to privacy” supposedly stemming from an “emanation of a penumbra” in our founding document. But marriage isn’t about privacy; it is by definition a public institution, officially sanctioned by the state. The five justices who altered marriage forever did so not because the Constitution demanded it or ever suggested it but...

DIANE MEDVED: Supreme Court Redefines “Marriage” as “Love”

By Diane Medved   President Obama was so romantic when commenting on the Supreme Court 5-4 ruling that same-sex marriage be permitted nationally.  “Love is Love,” he declared, in a puzzling statement of the obvious. Yes, love is love. But it is not marriage, though the president implied that’s so. Do all people who deeply love each other naturally want to marry? The nursery rhyme that “love and marriage go together like a horse and carriage” is as outdated as the horse and...

Honor Heritage with the RIGHT Flag

225px-Flag_of_South_Carolina.svg

In the raging controversy over the Confederate battle flag, defenders of that controversial banner insist it symbolizes Southern Heritage. But that flag only officially represented the South for four years – the deadliest, most destructive years in all Southern history, in a failed conflict to dismantle the United States and preserve slavery. Why not honor the South and its admirable patriotism by flying the flag under which Southerners fought heroically in all our wars—and that would be Old Glory? Or else,...

Censoring Great Art: Foolish and Fascistic

Clark_Gable_and_Vivien_Leigh_-_Wind

Hysteria over symbols of the Confederacy and the South has now reached the level of insanity. Apple banned images of the Dixie flag in Civil War computer games, for instance.  Meanwhile, many books, games and videos about World War II still use the swastika. Does this mean the Confederacy is now deemed worse than the genocidal Nazis? Worst of all, film critic Lou Lumenick has suggested that GONE WITH THE WIND be placed “on the shelf” and shown only at museums. Yes, it’s dubious and misleading as a work of...

How Rice as Running Mate Could Power Victory

220px-Condoleezza_Rice_cropped

Imagine Republicans running against Hillary with the slogan: “Not your grandmother’s GOP.” If they choose a young leader, Scott Walker or Marco Rubio for president, and Condaleezza Rice for Vice President, that slogan emphasizes that tired charges of Republican racism no longer work. It also emphasizes the GOP youthfulness advantage: the grandmother in the race is Hillary. And Dr. Rice as VEEP candidate invites a direct contrast between two female secretaries of state. Rice ran State when the bold Iraq surge...

GOP Ticket Needs a Woman: Which One?

For two reasons, Republicans must select a female nominee for Vice President. First, because a woman can play the attack-dog role against Hillary without backlash about sexism and, second, because the GOP must win a decisive majority of white females for any chance of victory. But which female leaders to consider? Kelly Ayotte is youthful and charismatic, but is busy this year defending her crucial Senate seat in New Hampshire. Governor Nikki Haley is also dynamic, but deeply controversial at home in South...

The Key Target of Hillary’s Campaign: White Women

Despite recent setbacks, Hillary Clinton’s campaign remains serenely confident of victory because of their candidate’s strength among one crucial group in the electorate: white women. Actually, Hillary doesn’t even need a majority of this group; she just needs to come within ten points of the GOP candidate. In 2012, Romney won white women by a landslide margin of 14 percentage points. But Barack Obama still won the overall women’s vote because non-white females, nearly 30% of the women’s vote, gave him a...

Media Distortions Fuel Spike in Murders

  The month of May saw tragic spikes in murder rates in Baltimore, New York, Chicago and other big cities—an alarming reversal of nearly 30 years of progress in reducing violent crime. Irresponsible media coverage of police-tensions with the black community combined with demagogic posing by leftist politicians and agitators to raise the levels of urban violence. The obsessive focus on incidents of police shooting African-American males served to spread the false idea that the cops in general are a threat to...

G.O.P. Debates Shouldn’t Be Limited to 10

businessman standing on podium

Fox News made the unfortunate decision to limit the first Republican debate, scheduled for two months from now, to 10 participants, based on their standing in national polls. This will exclude some worthy contenders on a flimsy basis—including a candidate with 4% support, while a rival with 3% is excluded. Given that the margin of error in most polls—their admitted rate of inaccuracy—is at least 3-6%, this makes no sense. Also, ten candidates on stage is far too many since each prospective president will be...

Students Say Bush Is Even Worse Than Stalin

Fashion students being attentive in class

A recent study asked 7,000 university students in 37 countries to evaluate 40 names to choose the greatest heroes and villains in world history. On the positive side, respondents chose Albert Einstein as the leading hero of all-time; Jesus Christ ranked sixth. On the negative side, Adolph Hitler earned the greatest villain title, with Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein his runners up. But on the list of top villains, just a notch better than Saddam and even worse than Stalin and Mao, was George W. Bush! Given the...
