The Rapid ‘Progress’ of Progressivism

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In the eternal search for perfect justice and equality, what starts out as liberal can quickly end up as progressively absurd. The logic of equality of result, rather than equality of opportunity, demands that there is always one more group, one more grievance, one more complaint against the shrinking and overwhelmed majority.

Silicon Valley Billionaires Are the New Robber Barons

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

There are no modern-day progressive muckrakers in the spirit of Upton Sinclair, Frank Norris, and Lincoln Steffens, warning of the dangers of techie monopolies or the astronomical accumulation of wealth. Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook are worth nearly $1 trillion each. Hip billionaire corporatism is one of the strangest progressive hypocrisies of our times.

How Progressives Will Scare Off Moderates and Squander the Moral High Ground

Elliot Kaufman, National Review

Abandoning the left's radical organizations would incur the wrath of the party faithful. Not abandoning them could incur the wrath of nearly everyone else.

Rick Perry Wins

Erick Erickson, Red State

The drunk in charge of the Travis County D.A.’s Office wants to settle a political grudge with a criminal indictment. Perry will make more money off this than the D's ever will. R's should be thanking Rosemary “Vodka” Lehmberg for highlighting just what contempt progressives have for the democratic process.

Why Big Business Wanted Regulation

Timothy P. Carney, Washington Examiner

Preservation of the status quo is often the aim of corporations. It's consistently the consequence of fed. action. It's the enemy of entrepreneurship, economic growth and free choice. As today's progs. continue TRoosevelt's collusive policies hidden by populist rhetoric, we need Gabriel Kolko's insights more than ever.

Study: More Immigration Helps Dems, Hurts GOP

Byron York, Washington Examiner

"Immigrants, particularly Hispanics and Asians, have policy preferences more closely aligned with progressives than with conservatives."

The Washington Post Aiding and Abetting Obama Cover-Up of IRS Targeting of Tea Party

The editors of The Washington Post bought the political spin from the Obama administration and congressional Democrats even when it was flatly contradicted by the Inspector General charged with actually investigating the targeting of the Tea Party for the Treasury.
