Why Enoch was Right.

Perhaps my mixed heritage provides me with a different perspective on the topic of immigration. My father’s family is from Jamaica, originally Nigeria, and my mother’s family is from England. I am, therefore, ethnically half Afro-Caribbean and half English. Most liberals would defend my father’s family in their right to self-determination, whether in Jamaica or in Africa. Why, then, do they not afford my mother’s family the same privilege? Surely, all countries should be able to have a conversation about national security, borders and immigration levels. Not only is it in their best interest, but it is also the job

‘SPERMAGEDDON’: Humanity May be Functionality Infertile by 2050, New Study Warns.

/

Massively declining sperm counts are a global problem, according to new research that has evident implications for the survival of the natural human race. Current trends in sperm counts, if extrapolated, suggest that, as early as 2050, the species may have trouble reproducing. The median man will have a sperm count of zero, meaning that one half of all men will produce no sperm at all, and the other half will produce so few as to be functionally infertile. Researchers have further corroborated prior information gained on sperm counts in North America, Europe, and Australia, revealing the decline in sperm

Carly Fiorina versus Renee Ellmers?

Last week in the Daily Caller, I reported on two profiles of courage – or rather one courageous woman and one. . . not so much. Here was my main point: It isn’t often that The Washington Post describes a defender of abortion as having the “worst week in Washington.” But that is what Post columnist Chris Cillizza did in picking Rep. Renee Ellmers for the honor, thanks to her strange timing in opposing a popular late-term abortion limit while hundreds of thousands of pro-life marchers were in town last week. By contrast, a different female leader had the best week in politics: Carly Fiorina. .

Perry’s Two Legged Stool?

It was amusing to see Politico try to portray Gov. Perry’s APP gala speech as indicating “A new more, moderate Perry.” It was even more amusing when Drudge called Politico on it, linking to the article under the far more accurate headline: “Perry pumps up conservatives at DC Confab.” (That would be our gala). Perry gave a great and conservative speech.  But I noticed both at APP’s gala, and perhaps even more oddly at Steve King’s Iowa Freedom Summit on Jan. 24, Perry eschewed speaking at all about life, marriage or religious liberty, the classic “social issues.” He may see himself as

It’s Not Income Inequality, Stupid

David Shribman, editor of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, is worried about the GOP economic message.  In an article called  “What Isn’t Being Said About 2016,” Shribman speaks with great compassion of “the anguish Republican candidates are having in trying to figure out how to address economic issues.”  Shribman describes the problem as “conservatives struggling to address the wealth gap.” Ah, Republicans don’t be fooled, for this, of course, puts the argument in liberal Democratic terms. The income or wealth  “gap” is not the problem voters care about.  Their problem (and ours) is the stagnation of American workers who are running harder and harder

Will Huckabee Stand Alone?

So far in the GOP race for 2016, there has been only one candidate to stand up strongly in the last few weeks and months against the new raging political correctness that has completely overtaken the gay marriage and religious freedom debate: Gov. Mike Huckabee. He’s not stopping at just government policies either. Huckabee has made headlines recently for calling out Christians for “evolving” on the issue. From OneNewsNow.com: “As a biblical issue, unless I get a new version of the scriptures, it’s really not my place to say, OK, I’m just gonna evolve,” the former Arkansas governor contended. “It’s like

Russell Moore to GOP: God Talk Is No Longer Enough

The threats to Christian freedom and inclusion in this country are multiplying but the GOP has yet to rise to the defense, preferring to flee anything that offends the Human Rights Campaign’s powerful network. Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptists’ Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, lays down a new call to action: “In recent years candidates have assumed that they can win over evangelicals by learning Christian slogans, by masking political rallies as prayer meetings, and by basically producing a long-form new birth certificate to prove they’ve been born again. This sort of identity politics is a luxury of a past

Is the Fed Off-Limits?

The liberal economic elite is circling the wagons to preserve the Federal Reserve.  Alan Blinder denounces proposed laws which will “encourage congressional meddling with monetary policy.”  Catherine Rampell takes up the cudgel against legislation mandating an audit of the Fed, on the grounds that “monetary policy is a complex technical apparatus that not everyone (read Congress) is equipped to operate.” What is raising the liberal establishment’s ire? Three modest bills authored by Representatives Scott Garrett and Thomas Massie, and Senator Rand Paul, which seek to remind the Federal Reserve for whom they work. The Federal Reserve is as close to

The New Problem with Governors’ Girlfriends

New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo isn’t the only governor with a girlfriend problem. Oregon’s Democratic Governor John Kitzhaber is in hot water for the fact that his girlfriend cum fiancée cum “first lady” has been using their personal relationship to make money, as Washington Post’s Wonkblog noted. The liberal Oregonian is calling on him to resign. Not, of course, for the bad example to the children which we now take for granted but at least for the affront to good government and taxpayers, bless ‘em: “To recite every reported instance in which Hayes, ostensibly under Kitzhaber’s watchful eye, has used

Taking on the Real Marriage Inequality

The Democrats like to talk about every kind of inequality, except the most devastating: marriage inequality. No I am not talking about the fact that non-marital unions aren’t treated as marriages (whether it is same-sex unions, or the latest progressive complaint over “singlism”). The most important marriage inequality in America is that 42 percent of children are growing up apart from their own mom and dad joined by marriage, according to the Census data (Current Population Survey) analyzed by respected family scholar Nicholas Zill. Of course the half-full good news in that is marriage is showing persistent and surprising strength: overall almost 6 in
