We Hear You: ‘Elitist Media Believe Themselves Superior’

Editor’s note: The pretensions of the “mainstream media” remain on the minds of our audience. Today’s collection of mail kicks off with those concerns. Got an urge to write us? See how below.—Ken McIntyre Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Dear Daily Signal: The Washington Post’s attack on The Daily Signal’s participation in the White House press pool is an egregious confrontation that highlights the difference between elite and citizen journalism (“The Daily Signal Won’t Be Bullied by the Establishment Media“). The reason the elitist press wish to deny access to a non-elitist press: They fear they will lose their influence and power. This power struggle between the two is nothing new or unusual, and we are hearing about it now because of President Trump’s battle with elite news sources, more often … Read entire article »

Remembering George Washington’s New Year’s Victory Over the British at Princeton

Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month PRINCETON, N.J.—What began as a retreat from battle-hardened, bayonet-wielding British soldiers 240 years ago, Gen. George Washington reorganized into a counterattack after arriving with well-armed reinforcements in a place known as Maxwell’s Field. This battleground in Princeton, New Jersey, is where the U.S. War of Independence reached a critical turning point. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); “Parade with us, my brave fellows!” Washington is said to have called out to his troops, “and we will have them directly.” A tall and imposing figure even by today’s standards, Washington was “an easy mark for any British soldier” while mounted on his white horse, historian David Hackett Fischer recounts in his book “Washington’s Crossing.” Get Select TV + Free HD TV Antenna + Entertainment Bundle An 1848 painting by American artist … Read entire article »

Despite Conservative Victories in 2016, Assisted Suicide Has Gained Ground

Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month While the nation’s attention has been squarely on President-elect Donald Trump’s win in recent weeks, election night also saw several significant losses for conservatives. Among these is Colorado’s Proposition 106, known as the End of Life Options Act, which passed by an astounding two-thirds percentage and effectively legalized suicide in that state. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Proposition 106 signals a stark shift in the cultural and legal landscape in one of the nation’s most purple states. Colorado became one of the first two states to legalize marijuana in 2012, and over the past four years, it has been one of the top two states in receiving an influx of young professionals under 40. Even though local mainstream media and editorial opinions that are not typically conservative … Read entire article »

Getting Rid of Electoral College Would Mean a Tyrannical Rule of the Majority

Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month It is alleged that Hillary Clinton won a popular vote majority. Therefore, if the nation were not burdened with the antiquated Electoral College, anguished and freaked-out Americans whine, she, instead of Donald Trump, would be the next president of the United States. You say, “Hold it. Before you go further, Williams, what do you mean it is alleged that Clinton received most of the popular vote? It’s a fact.” (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I say “alleged” because, according to Gregg Phillips of True the Vote, an estimated 3 million noncitizens voted. Presumably, those votes went to Clinton. In 2000, Al Gore won the popular vote just as Clinton allegedly did. Such outcomes have led to calls to abandon the Constitution’s Article 2 provision for the state … Read entire article »

Marcus Evans, the vice president of Yes California, filed a proposed ballot measure with the Attorney General’s Office on Monday that would appear on the November 2018 gubernatorial ballot. “We always thought that if we just connected with the people who thought about this, but didn’t tell their friends and family because they would be seen as kooky and weird, that … Read entire article »

The Continuing Relevance of the Constitution

Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Public policy is often exciting and urgent. When a war begins or ends, when votes are counted in an election, or when a major bill is passed, everyone senses the magnitude of the event. Some struggles end and new struggles begin. Consequences carry far into the future. Compared to this, and especially given the way we think today, the Constitution seems like a boring subject. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); But how do we know whether the public policies we adopt are good? How do we know whether the results of the election will be happy? How even do we know if the war we have fought was worth it? Those questions cannot be answered except by reference to things that are outside the immediate excitement and … Read entire article »

Thanksgiving Through the Years

George Washington was first in war, first in peace, and in November 1789, the first president to proclaim a national day of thanksgiving, openly acknowledging God as the source of all “the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.” Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Among the “favors” were a Declaration of Independence that inspires us to the present day, a remarkable military victory over the most powerful nation in the world, and an ingenious Constitution of checks and balances that places “we the people” at the center of our government. For the next fourscore and seven years, most states honored a November date as a day of prayer and fasting, but there was no national celebration.

Thomas Jefferson Now Politically Incorrect at the University He Founded

A group of students and professors at the University of Virginia want to give the founder of their school the shaft. In a letter to the university’s president, Teresa Sullivan, they asked her to remove Thomas Jefferson quotes from messages to students, according to the Washington Examiner. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month “For many of us, the inclusion of Jefferson quotations in these emails undermines the message of unity, equality, and civility that you are attempting to convey,” the group wrote. Sullivan said in a response that she would not backpedal from quoting Jefferson, according to another report from the Examiner. The Sage of Monticello—as the author of the Declaration of Independence has often been called in tribute to his home in Charlottesville, Virginia—had such high hopes for the school … Read entire article »

25 Years After Thomas Joins Supreme Court, a Friend Hails an American Originalist

Not every justice on the Supreme Court connects the “magical words” of the Declaration of Independence with the government structure set up in the Constitution to protect natural rights as expressed by Thomas Jefferson. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month In fact, the only one to do so with any consistency in recent years is Justice Clarence Thomas, a friend and former White House lawyer said in an interview with The Daily Signal on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Thomas’ swearing-in. “What we now have after Thomas has served for 25 years on the court is not just an amazing and inspiring life story, but a remarkable record of jurisprudence,” recalled Mark Paoletta, who was on the White House legal team when President George H.W. Bush nominated Thomas to … Read entire article »

Millennial Cluelessness About Communism’s Massacres Demonstrates the Need for School Choice

American education is failing thousands of students every year. But this crisis is not just about poor scores in math and reading. It is a deeper failure, leaving entire generations of Americans without the most basic knowledge of the country’s past and its civic institutions. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month As The Daily Signal reported, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s first “Annual Report on U.S. Attitudes Towards Socialism” showed that just 42 percent of millennials view capitalism favorably compared to 64 percent of Americans over 65. Perhaps more disturbingly, a third of millennials believe that more people were killed under former President George W. Bush than under notorious Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, and just 37 percent of millennials had a “very unfavorable” view of communism.

The Political Theorist Behind Today’s Identity Politics

Elections are opportunities for Americans to take a serious look at their country and evaluate its current health. Looking around as the election season shifts into high gear, we find several ominous symptoms of political illness. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Consider, for example, our increased ideological polarization, the repeated disregard for the Constitution by office holders, heightened racial tensions that have erupted in violence, the shriveling respect for religious freedom, and the growing habit of using the judiciary rather than the legislature to change public policy. One reason we have these problems is because of the way we tend to think and talk about politics in America. The political landscape today has been heavily influenced by someone whose name most people do not even know: the late Harvard University … Read entire article »

To Protect Taxpayers From Funding Abortion, the Hyde Amendment Must Be Permanent

To Protect Taxpayers From Funding Abortion, the Hyde Amendment Must Be Permanent

In our Declaration of Independence, the Founders declared that everyone is endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, including and especially life. Science has revealed and affirmed the notion that an unborn child is human life with unique DNA. For more and more Americans, this fact of life is becoming more clear with each new scientific discovery. Kill Your Cable Bill!

9/11 Anniversary: 10 Lessons Learned From the 15-Year ‘Long War’

Having been in the Pentagon on 9/11, it does not seem as if it was 15 years ago that our lives and national trajectory were changed so much. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month For those who have been in the middle of it all, the time has gone swiftly. To many others, it is ancient history. Some interns at The Heritage Foundation were only as young as 4 and 5 years old on that chaotic day. That said, what lessons could we learn from the trial of the Long War? Here are 10 worth considering. Every nation is vulnerable, and democracies are even more so. The optimism and freedoms of America make it open to attack.

Unlike the NFL’s Colin Kaepernick, Frederick Douglass Loved ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’

National Football League player Colin Kaepernick created a stir on Friday when he refused to stand for the national anthem at the start of a preseason game. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback cited the prevalence of racism and oppression in America as the primary reasons he sat during the playing of the song. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month The Bay Area football star has been fading over the last few years and he’ll likely be doing a lot of sitting this season—for the national anthem or otherwise. But Kaepernick’s protest has initiated a national debate over patriotism and respect for the American flag. “The Star-Spangled Banner” was written by Francis Scott Key during the War of 1812; it was officially adopted as the national anthem in 1931 and has been … Read entire article »

True Feminism and the Constitution Have Always Been Compatible

Feminists have convinced many Americans that the U.S. Constitution was and remains an impediment to the rights of women. They argue that freedom and equality for women have come to fruition only as a result of modern feminism. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month In reality, as I argue in “The Modern Feminist Rejection of Constitutional Government,” the Constitution has always been compatible with women’s equal political rights. Although modern feminists frequently speak the language of equal opportunity and rights, the movement has strayed from this narrow mission in favor of a far more radical agenda. In the name of “equality,” modern feminism seeks to eliminate gender distinctions and promote absolute parity between the sexes in all areas of society based on a monolithic view of what it means to be … Read entire article »

The History of the United States, as Told by Young Democrats

PHILADELPHIA—Young Democrats appear to be part of the coalition championing that dictum from William Faulkner: “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month I expected the youth caucus meeting at the Democratic National Convention, which I attended Wednesday, to focus almost entirely on current liberal concerns such as student loans, jobs, LGBT issues, and climate change. (Given the near absolute lack of mentions of terrorism on the convention’s main stage, I wasn’t so naïve that I expected any talk about the Islamic State terrorists or national security.) But this was no MSNBC event, and far from leaning forward, two of the three participants on a panel went on extended diatribes about the United States’ history to a room with enough empty chairs to satisfy … Read entire article »
