Every time Pope Francis opens his mouth on gays or women, journalists twist his words. Why?
In this country, we believe in free speech and religious freedom, as expressed in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It is concerning that journalists, whose livelihood depends on free speech, constantly run headlines distorting the Pope’s words and thus attacking religious free speech. Continue reading
Democrats are blushing. And not because Anthony Weiner is back on Twitter, direct-messaging pretty young girls.
Vice President Joe Biden has long held the title of “Liberal Loose Cannon.” But Biden is such a grand hugger and hand-shaker that Democrats still let him work the crowds, crossing their fingers that he won’t say something like: “In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian Americans, moving from India; you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent… and I’m not joking!” Continue reading
What happened to the bulldogs in the media? When it came to covering the Benghazi terrorist attack, the media sounded like a pack of Chihuahuas. The media is the last guardian of free speech in America. If the media becomes a megaphone for politicians, then there is no point to the media at all.
We can’t expect politicians to behave themselves if reporters don’t hold politicians accountable. If the Benghazi coverage taught us anything, it’s that journalists need to be more aggressive, more inquisitive and more driven to get to the facts in stories. Continue reading
Pause and reflect on this hypocrisy: The Department of Justice prosecutes young hackers who use computers to promote free speech while highly educated adults within the DOJ threaten to use lethal drone force against American citizens without due process. Which is worse?
Certainly, I do not condone hacking. However, you and I need to start talking about the best way to handle cyberattacks while also recognizing that the same government officials we trust to protect us are assaulting our constitutional freedoms. Continue reading
President Obama and Sandra Fluke both call themselves lawyers and “reproductive rights activists” without giving you any indication that they understand the Constitution or basic biology.
I’m not a lawyer, but I understand the Constitution. I’m not a reproductive rights activist, but I aced Biology 101. So I can tell you that Sandra and Barack are wrong when they classify women in combat and contraception as “women’s issues.”
Military combat and contraception coverage are not women’s issues. They are freedom issues and freedom is just as important to men as it is to women. Continue reading
Who knew? My parents are cool. Homeschooling is becoming hipster. Celebrity parents like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie proudly discuss their homeschooling lifestyle. But pioneers like my parents set the trend of educational freedom.
The plan was to send me to public school. My mother enjoyed her job as an R.N. and was not bored. She was simply a creative rebel. And my father encouraged her to pioneer—because he believed in freedom. Continue reading
Ten, nine, eight… what do you appreciate? When life seems crazy or hopeless, count your blessings backwards—that is, find something to be thankful for in the midst of darkness. It is reverse psychology for adults.
Think of the most onerous regulation or politician in your life and find one reason you are thankful for this trial. For example, President Obama’s reelection could be an opportunity for you to develop a stronger character or feel greater motivation to achieve your goals. This is an uplifting mental exercise, particularly during Thanksgiving week. Here are a few more examples: Continue reading

Dagny Taggart is not just the entrepreneurial heroine of Ayn Rand’s magnum opus novel, Atlas Shrugged. She is the inspiration of real women everywhere who are taking up her shield and fighting her battle for freedom using the weapons of entrepreneurship, education and free speech.
The media continually talks about the “war on women.” What the media never admits is that the government is waging a war against women through unjust … Continue reading
Hit the gym; grab dinner with friends; build a bonfire. These are three evening activities I prefer to watching presidential debates—and I am a political commentator. Few young people watch presidential debates and I understand why.
After Wednesday’s initial presidential debate, I realized that Republicans are failing to exploit the debates and attract independent voters. Instead, Republicans seem to be preaching to the choir. Continue reading
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When Washington gives you lemons, make lemonade and don’t forget the rum.
D.C. lemons make it challenging to remain upbeat. “Lemon legislation” coming out of Washington, D.C. is effectively shredding the Constitution (think Obamacare or the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the National Defense Authorization Act and President Obama’s executive order to expand the use of domestic drones).
