This past weekend, the establishment wing of the Republican Party finally laid its cards on the table. They’ve finally thrown off the veil of faux conservatism to show the entire world just who they really are. The question is, are we now smart enough to see them for who they are? With the passage of …

This story might cause some disagreement among Godfather Politics readers. That’s OK. But there’s a lesson in it for conservatives who say they believe market decisions should decide the success or failure of a business. Marriott International has been ordered to “pay the government a $600,000 fine for jamming conference attendees’ own Wi-Fi networks at …

ISIS, a term the White House refuses to use any more, stands for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

I saw a few posts on Facebook about the unusual number of earthquakes taking place in Oklahoma. After researching Oklahoma earthquakes online, I found that there are hundreds of recorded earthquakes which are being attributed to the oil and gas industry and “hydraulic fracturing” (fracking).

The Tenth Amendment says, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” But Barrack Obama says, I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone, and I can do what I want. Not the states, …

The following exchange is from the 1953 film Shane, starring Alan Ladd and Jean Arthur. Ladd’s character is trying to live at peace with the world. He’s hung up his gun. He doesn’t want trouble. He also knows that there are some bad people in the world who don’t care about peace. Better to be …

The Seattle City Council, liberal brain trust that it is, has set an example for the entire nation by voting to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. “This legislation sends a message heard around the world: Seattle wants to stop the race to the bottom in wages and that we deplore the growth …

Only a liberal would bring pliers to a gunfight. That’s effectively what happened when U.S. District Judge Robert Dow Jr. dismissed a complaint filed on behalf of a Chicago teacher who was suspended for bringing a household toolbox to class for a lesson about tools. In rejecting the complaint, the judge said officials at Washington Irving …

How is it possible that less than 2% of the population can wield such power? As expected, Mozilla Chief Executive Brendan Eich has stepped down. What did he do that was so evil? Did he murder someone? Did he molest a child? Does he have a Swastika tattooed on his forearm? Get ready for it. …
