The Breitbart Election

I regret that I’ve been too busy to blog lately, particularly in this crucial election year.  However, despite my lack of time, I would like to put one point on the record prior to tomorrow’s historic presidential election: Regardless of which candidate wins, this election can be accurately described as “the Breitbart election.”   Simply put, the ideas for which Andrew Breitbart advocated long before his premature death bore fruit [more . . . ]

It's Ryan!  Immediate Impressions

In his recent piece, Charles Krauthammer set out two approaches that Mitt Romney can take in his campaign against the president. Stewardship or ideology.  Krauthammer asserted that Romney would win with an ideology approach.  In a previous post, I wrote that Romney needs to be an architect, not a handy man; he needs to have a vision for the country, not just a pragmatic fix for it. By picking Paul Ryan, Romney [more . . . ]

Just Plain Wrong

In my last post, on June 1, I predicted that the ironically-named Affordable Care Act would be struck down as unconstitutional.  I was just plain wrong. I was correct that the law violated the commerce clause, which was the primary authority on which the government based its argument.  I also opined that at least one liberal justice would concur in the “violates the commerce clause” point, but would provide that the [more . . . ]

Specific Thoughts on Random Things

Time flies!  It’s been nearly two whole months since my last post.  Please forgive me, dear readers, but since my last post I wrapped up law school and I am currently studying for the bar exam . . . no rest for the weary.  However, while I have not been blogging much, I have been thinking about a few things . . . The subtitle of Wake Up Winston! is [more . . . ]

About Breitbart . . .

Things change.  And they did so dramatically last week, when we lost Andrew Breitbart. I met Andrew only twice. Before I attended law school, I enjoyed a moderately successful career as an actor and writer in Los Angeles.  Andrew and I hung out in, shall we say, the same circle of friends. The first time Andrew and I met was no more than an introduction.  The second time was a [more . . . ]

The Parasitic Left

The Obama administration’s recent foray into ObamaCare rule-making and its  implications for the First Amendment’s free exercise clause are well-reported and appropriately criticized by people who respect religious freedom and our Constitution, which protects it.  For examples, see here, here, and here. In a nutshell, the president’s administration required religious institutions to violate their theological doctrines when it mandated every employer – including churches and church affiliated employers – pay [more . . . ]

Leftists, Catholics, and Abortion

I had an epiphany tonight.  I was pondering the question as to why Obama seemingly sought to tick off Catholic voters.  I was puzzled because it seemed to be a form of political suicide that lacked any political benefit; Obama didn’t need to offend Catholics to secure the support of pro-abortion voters. I had incorrectly assumed that Obama was a political animal like Bill Clinton and would take actions that [more . . . ]

The Best Non-Romney Is Actually . . . Mitt Romney

I was going to write about the fickleness of conservatives.  Fickleness seemed an apt description.  In this primary season, conservatives swooned first over Michelle Bachmann.  Then Herman Cain.  Rick Perry was king of the prom for a dance or two.  Then Newt Gingrich wooed conservative hearts . . . until he attacked free enterprise, which wasn’t too smart because conservatives like free enterprise.  Rick Santorum, of course, turned heads in [more . . . ]

Ezra Levant hosts “The Source” on Canada’s Sun News.  In the below videos, this Canadian accurately explains how President Obama’s recent decision to prevent the Keystone Pipeline illustrates – among other things – the president’s siding with special interests over American interests, broken campaign promises to the American people, and the continued standing up for our enemies while standing against our friends. President Obama’s decision to prevent the creation of [more . . . ]

The “Vision Thing” Revisited

I previously wrote about Mitt Romney’s vision problem.  Tonight, in his New Hampshire primary victory speech, Mitt took some steps in the right direction.  For example, he said: Our plans protect freedom and opportunity, and our blueprint is the Constitution of the United States.” As I wrote in that prior post,  Mitt needs “to articulate the principles that his solutions serve.”  His speech tonight was a step in the right direction.  I [more . . . ]
