Question With(out) Boldness: In Which Glenn Beck Jumps the Shark

Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear. – Thomas Jefferson At the risk of being redundant, I must join Michael in pointing out the sheer hypocrisy of Glenn Beck’s hatchet job of a radio…


Chris Matthews Smears Debra Medina

Why, she can’t be for (the Principles of 1798 as enunciated in Jefferson and Madison’s Virginia and Kentucky Resolves) nullification and interposition! Who does she think she is, John C. Calhoun? That’s Jim Crow, says the ignorant and evil regime shill Matthews. (Thanks to Travis Holte)

A Question for Glenn Beck on Global Warming and Conspiracy

Glenn: I’m under the impression that you consider the science behind global warming to be inaccurate, and that the efforts to promote it include hiding truth. A grand conspiracy, of sorts. On your TV show in November, 2009, you said: Count them. There’s Jones, Mike, Keith, Gene and Caspar, whoever they are. Potentially deleting emails…


States Can’t Nullify, Because I Said So!

Funny to watch the establishment’s reaction to the reappearance of the idea of state nullification of unconstitutional federal laws. This isn’t allowed, of course — the right of Ivy Leaguers to impose their theories on the country shall not be infringed. The extremely conventional Sanford Levinson trots out all the old arguments. My book on…


A Few Answers to the DSCC

Last week, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee made some news with a memo of how they plan to “marginalize” republicans with some direct questions.

Repeal the 17th Amendment

Does it seem cold to anyone else right now?  I’m sure the answer is yes.  More signs that the sub zero temperatures have extended as far down as hell appeared today, or at least what I read in the today’s Huffington Post seemed equally shocking.  In Tony Blankley’s latest piece for The Huffington Post he took…


Obama is not lying, but he thinks he is.

All the pundits are blasting Obama for his comments this week declaring similarities between the momentum that brought him the Presidency and the momentum that brought Scott Brown to the Senate. Obama said: “Here’s my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts but the mood around the country: The same thing that swept Scott…


Already Rep. Lynn Faces Attacks for Nullification Statements

Already the fear-mongering and unfounded claims of slavery support have been thrown at Rep. Susan Lynn for her recent statements regarding nullification. Read the following post for all the details, but here is a taste: Rep. Mike Turner, chairman of the House Democrats’ political caucus, said Tuesday Lynn’s comments harkened back to Civil War-era arguments.…


NYTimes: 10th Amendment Really Just a Plot By Big Health Insurance

As it so often does, the New York Times gave much-deserved credit to its readership’s intelligence Monday, with an article describing the brewing battle over health care “reform” at the state level as the work of insidious insurance lobbyists, who have apparently been plotting for years to derail the ever-shifting corporatist giveaway known as ObamaCare.…
