Elites fan the fires of racial outrage.

One has to hand it to a few brave members of the liberal mainstream media, such as The Washington Post’s Richard Cohen and Slate’s William Saletan, who have gone against their counterparts (and our president) who continue to perpetuate the false narratives of the Zimmerman-Martin saga. They are the rare exception, and this is likely […]

Obama for Stand Your Ground before he was against it.

President Obama channels his inner John Kerry on “Stand Your Ground” laws. [WSJ] In his remarks last Friday on George Zimmerman’s acquittal, the President said it would be wise to “examine” state and local laws governing the use of firearms in self-defense.

People have a visceral reaction to guns, which is why the reactions to the Supreme Court’s recent decision in McDonald v. City of Chicago have been so emotional. One extraordinarily telling reaction came from David Ignatius of the […]

Kerry’s Absolutely Backwards Gun Control.

[Houston Chronicle] At Monday’s hearing, [Senate Foreign Relations Committee] committee Chairman Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., said he had been shocked to see killings and beheadings “just a stone’s throw across the Rio Grande from where we’re sitting this morning.” Across the border, thousands of Mexican soldiers patrol Ciudad Juarez, which saw about 2,000 murders in […]
