One hundred and five years ago today, Arizona entered the Union as the 48th state. Fast-forward just over a century, and this Valentine’s Day baby has truly come into its own. Move over, Texas, here comes the Copper State!
Arizona’s title as one of our most successful conservative states comes by way of bold leadership, an eye for modernization and a deep-seeded love for western rugged-individualism that would make Barry Goldwater smile from the Great Beyond.Read more
Cass Sunstein, a Harvard law professor and intellectual heavyweight on the left has perfectly encapsulated the cavernous divide between the battle of ideas and the fight for the soul of the American judiciary.
In a recent article, Sunstein claims to accurately represent originalist Constitutional thought and goes so far as to list specific policy provisions he purports to exclaim Originalism can “easily lead to.” The list includes: banning the sale of contraceptives, federal and state racial discrimination, state establishment of religion, and the invalidation of the Endangered Species Act and Clean Water Act.Read more
Halloween has been over for nearly three weeks, but something evil is brewing in the bowels of the Capitol and the basements of Trump Tower. Congressmen and Senators are reading incantations. Government contractors are drawing pentagrams in chalk. Their goal: to resurrect the undead zombie of failed economist, John Maynard Keynes! Get ready to run, it’s stimulus season!
George W. Bush called his $168 billion stimulus a package “a booster shot for our economy.” Barack Obama’s $825 billion stimulus included $90 billion for infrastructure and $32 billion to fortify the electricity grid. Now, it’s 2016, and the incoming administration has floated a $1 trillion dollar spending package to “fix our crumbling infrastructure.” The measure is also seen as a bipartisan outstretch of the hand from the Trump White House to Democratic Congressional Leaders. Republicans should beware the economic consequences of the peace when dealing with the Left.

President-elect Donald Trump can wake up every morning with a yuge grin on his face. He happens to be in a position that comes along once in a Super Moon. With substantial majorities in both the House and Senate, Trump can become a legendary president. #MAGA be damned, we should be talking monuments.
The truth is that Trump need only accomplish three simple tasks to become the conservative hero of this generation: (1) Appoint a conservative justice to fill Scalia’s seat, (2) Repeal and replace ObamaCare, and (3) Sign an appropriations bill that funds the construction of a border wall. It really is that simple. After those three basic accomplishments, Trump creates a veritable “legacy floor,” from which he could ostensibly spend the rest of his term playing golf at Mar-A-Lago.Read more
