Your Liberty is Our Interest


When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in “diversity” and demanding “safe spaces.” — Mona Charen

If you’re a conservative anti-amnesty activist who wants control over the border, respect for United States laws and sovereignty, but doesn’t want forced abortions, sterilizations, radical environmentalist wackoism and anti-Catholic bigotry, then NumbersUSA, FAIR, and CAPS are not your friends. Leon Wolf

Ted Cruz won the North Carolina Tea Party caucus, followed by Ben CarsonFreedomworks blog

Ben Carson’s words are historically accurate. It cannot be denied that gun control facilitated the disarming of political opponents and Jews in Nazi Germany and helped Hitler accomplish his horrific goals.  As for those who would register and disarm American citizens today, the history of Nazi Germany teaches a lesson that should never be forgotten.Stephen Halbrook

The left is in full-blown smear-Carson mode. He is, after all, the left’s worst nightmare — a black Republican who is brilliant, kind and widely admired, including by many blacks.Dennis Prager


If the Export-Import Bank gets reauthorized, if Planned Parenthood gets funded, and if the government continues to grow it will be because Kevin McCarthy turned a blind eye and got the legislation to the floor of the House where John Boehner could then rely on Democrat votes.  House conservatives are being played the fool by McCarthy and Boehner both in this.  The question is whether they are willing to show themselves for fools.Erick Erickson

The right thing to do is to defund Planned Parenthood. If President Obama shuts down the government, Republicans should explain what the shut down is for. They should wonder why the President is more invested in funding Planned Parenthood than children’s food assistance programs.  We have been confronted with savagery.  We have been confronted with seventeen hours of videos showing American citizens carving up dead children for profit.  If Republicans in Washington are not willing to fight that, shame on them.  The rest of us will just keep having to replace them.  Boehner has been taken out.  How many more must we defeat until the GOP finally does what is right?  - Erick Erickson

If Christianity had results that were as consistently disastrous as the results of  Leftism, I would give it up.  It appears that Leftists have much greater faith than I do.  No matter how consistently disastrous the results of their religion are, they stick with it.  - Theresa Camoriano

This is a fight on principle over whether the Republican Party should stand by and let our tax dollars be used to subsidize the American Mengeles of Planned Parenthood or not. This is a fight about whether our tax dollars should be used to subsidize harvesting children’s brains and hearts and lungs and livers. This is not a fight about politics. This is a fight about life and death. That Washington Republicans refuse to see that explains why they’re getting their butts kicked by a guy like Donald Trump. Their cynicism will be their death, even as they try to keep the death train rolling for Planned Parenthood. Pay attention. Look at which pro-life groups are standing up and which are sitting in Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58%‘s office.Erick Erickson

 There are people in the world who want to kill us. They are evil. And the President of the United States, when confronted with the mess of his predecessor shows no leadership when he just walks away saying it wasn’t his doing. What he did by walking away was let evil run and grow and spread. – Erick Erickson

It is not that Obama is weak. Nor is it that he is timid. It’s that he constantly turns a blind eye in the face of evil — a willful malfeasance. - Erick Erickson

So let me get this straight. Our president declines to enforce certain laws because he’s got other ideas… media darling. Various mayors and city councils declare their cities to be refuges for illegal immigrants, and decline to do the jobs for which they were elected… media darlings. Kim Davis declines to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples… TWO MINUTES HATE! Got it. Prufrock on September 3, 2015 

What this story reveals beyond the headlines is that the moral revolution on marriage and human sexuality will leave nothing as it was before. No area of life will be untouched, and no address will be far removed from the front lines of the revolution.Dr. Albert Mohler

If holding traditional Christian beliefs disqualifies a person from working for the government, then there is something seriously wrong with the government. — Theresa Camoriano

The people in Davis’ county can easily go to the next county to get married, so they are not suffering any injury.  Governor Beshear could easily make an accommodation so Davis’ name does not have to be on the marriage document.  So why not do it?  Because this is not about upholding the law, and it is not about gays.  It is about making it very difficult, if not impossible, for believing Christians to hold government jobs.  It reminds me of how the Soviet Union used to put pressure on people to comply.  If you did not comply, you lost your job and your family starved.  We are not that far along yet, but we are moving in that direction. — Theresa Camoriano

The Republican Party is dying because the GOP in DC has gone corporate and K Street. They attack any Republicans who dare hold them to their promises. -Erick Erickson

 ”You must look at facts, because they look at you.” — Winston Churchill

God bless Sen. Cruz and all others who are trying to govern precisely as they promised and to give conservatism — and thus America — a fighting chance.David Limbaugh

If one can put aside the revulsion for a moment, it is worth asking the deeper question of why an organization like Planned Parenthood even exists.  They claim to exist to provide “health care” to women. But the destruction of our own children is not “health care.”  – Laura Hollis

As we have said here for weeks, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58% has never for a second planned to do anything that would actually stop your tax money from going to Planned Parenthood. That is why he did not allow even a roll call vote on the Cruz/Lee amendment to the Highway Bill. That is why he humored Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87% with a standalone bill that he knew good and well would fail. And that is why he has already declared that he will not allow a Planned Parenthood rider to the CR this fall.  His plan all along has been to fail, and to fundraise off his failure,Leon Wolf

There was a great Marxist named Lenin / Who did two or three million men in / —That’s a lot to have done in / But where he did one in / That grand Marxist Stalin did ten in. 

When Obama betrayed his pledge and went to the Security Council on Monday, he gave Congress an opening to reconsider its position, ditch the restrictive Corker-Cardin law and reassert the Senate’s treaty approving authority.Caroline Glick


Iran has been at war with us for 36 years, and this deal–the latest of its kind–gives Iran lots of money to kill even more Americans.  – Michael Ledeen

Today, people mock Chamberlain. But just change the names, and you realize that we are living through a repetition of Munich. Substitute the Islamic Republic of Iran for Nazi Germany, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei for Hitler, Barack Obama and John Kerry for Chamberlain, Israel for Czechoslovakia and for Europe’s Jews, and the increasingly unsafe world of 2015 for the increasingly unsafe world of 1938.Dennis Prager

Changing the goal after the fact is just one of the ways the left has portrayed its failures as successes. Thomas Sowell

Leftism appeals to those who wish to remain innocent children. Growing up and facing the fact that life is messy, difficult and painful is increasingly a conservative point of view. — Dennis Prager

All men are created equal, but as each man becomes himself, each to his own design, no two men can ever be ‘equal’ again. This is the essence of Liberty : God gives each man the same start, the same ‘chance’ to prove his ‘inequality’ from all the others. Socialism seeks to impose ‘equality’ where it cannot possibly exist.——John Knapp  

As Gelonesi explains it, “The power of the family to tilt equality” creates an “unfair advantage” for children without loving biological parents. “When a parent wants to do the best for her child,” he claims, it necessarily “makes the playing field for others even more lopsided.” And so, whereas the conservative solution is to offer a leg up, the “progressive” solution prefers a jackboot down -Matt Barber (Is it time to abolish the family?)

Despite pious rhetoric on the left about “asking” the more fortunate for more money, the government does not “ask” anything. It seizes what it wants by force. If you don’t pay up, it can take not only your paycheck, it can seize your bank account, put a lien on your home and/or put you in federal prison.  So please don’t insult our intelligence by talking piously about “asking.”  And please don’t call the government’s pouring trillions of tax dollars down a bottomless pit “investment.” — Thomas Sowell

Time for a new Sexual Counter-revolution:  Men: What if you saw yourselves as gentlemen — men of honor, whose social responsibility it was to protect the women you are with (for an evening or longer)?… Women: What if you refused to settle for a drunken hookup in a dorm room with an equally inebriated stranger?— Laura Hollis
