Daily Caller: Brent Bozell Wants Scott Walker To Fire Brad Dayspring Immediately

From The Mirror at the Daily Caller by Betsy Rothstein:

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell has some rather harsh words for Brad Dayspring, the former National Republican Senatorial Committee strategist who is now working for presidential hopeful Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker‘s SuperPAC.

Dayspring is well-known for his hotheaded ways. His personality has even earned him a nickname in certain GOP circles: “Brad Dayscream.” As most who travel political Washington terrain know, when he departed then-House Maj. Leader Eric Cantor‘s office, he nearly came to blows with a senior staffer. [Read more…]

The Right to Privacy: Where Republicans Fall Flat

Ryan S. Walters | @ryanswalters73

On Tuesday a Florida judge, Chief Circuit Judge Charles Francis, blocked a state law that would require a 24-hour waiting period before a woman could get an abortion. The law was set to go into effect July 1. In his order the judge reasoned that the law placed an additional burden on a woman’s “right to privacy,” which is the right conjured up by Roe v. Wade to provide the right of choice. [Read more…]

Scott Walker Hires Brad Dayspring, Assailer of Chris McDaniel

As reported by Red State, Streiff (Diary):

Scott Walker just dropped off my list of acceptable candidates. I like a lot about Governor Walker but people are policy. And his decision to hire Brad Dayspring, an unprincipled political operative who combines viciousness and incompetence in equal measures tells us a lot. [Read more…]

The Supreme Court: Last Among Equals

Ryan S. Walters | @ryanswalters73

With the recent decisions by US Supreme Court, we are once again presented with a constitutional question that has been around as long as the Constitution: Which branch of government rightfully has the exclusive authority to interpret the Constitution and the laws of the United States?

Most contend that the power resides with the Supreme Court, including many conservatives, as a recent exchange between Megyn Kelly and Mike Huckabee will attest.  Kenneth Starr has even referred to the Supreme Court as a “First Among Equals,” and while I have great respect for him, he is simply wrong in this regard.

The Daily Beast Blames Slaveholder Thomas Jefferson for the Confederate Flag, Ignores FDR’s Internment

Ryan S. Walters | @ryanswalters73

In an interestingly dishonest piece in The Daily Beast, writer Nicholas Mills, a professor of American Studies (aka Anti-American Studies), casts blame for the Confederate flag on Thomas Jefferson, even though Mr. Jefferson died in 1826, some 35 years before the war began. He does that by blaming Jefferson for the legacy of slavery, which is what the Confederacy was founded upon you know.

You can read the whole disgusting piece here if you want to and be treated to all Jefferson’s hypocrisies, which silly professors delight in pointing out. I guess we should tear up the Declaration of Independence and destroy Monticello. I’m sure the fanatics would love that.

But I found something at the end of his article very interesting, or should I say a lack of something.  Mills notes that FDR dedicated the Jefferson Memorial in April 1943.  During the ceremony, FDR remarked, “Today in the midst of a great war for freedom, we dedicate a shrine to freedom.”  Of that Mills writes, “Like Lincoln, Roosevelt focused only on the side of Jefferson that inspired him. In the midst of World War II, with D-Day more than a year way, FDR could not be expected to do better. But today we can.”

Yet Mills never bothered to mention that it was FDR who ordered hundreds of thousands of American citizens, of Japanese ancestry (i.e. not white), into concentration camps in January 1942, the year before he dedicated the Jefferson Memorial. So, Professor, where did FDR get his inspiration for the internment camps, from Hitler?

Will the hypocrisy never end?

So I’m awaiting the call from liberals to burn down FDR’s presidential library and bulldoze his monument in DC.  But I won’t hold my breath!


John Brown vs. John Calhoun: Some Perspective and an Answer to Kevin D. Williamson

Ryan S. Walters | @ryanswalters73

This evening I read a very interesting piece by Kevin D. Williamson of National Review, an article entitled “We have officially reached peak leftism.” I thought it was pretty good until I reached one sentence: “My sympathies are more with John Brown than John Calhoun,” he wrote.

As a historian I was stunned and could not read the rest of the piece. I immediately tweeted Mr. Williamson about the quote. Here is part of our exchange:

I simply found it a bit creepy that Mr. Williamson feels more sympathy for a maniac like John Brown, a terrorist who committed several gruesome murders and hoped to commit many more, than he does for John Calhoun, who committed no acts of violence in his lifetime and who is regarded as a great American political thinker even by those who have no sympathy for the South or the Confederacy.

Senator Chris McDaniel Releases Statement Regarding Supreme Court Gay Marriage Ruling

Senator Chris McDaniel today released the following statement regarding the ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on gay marriage:

“Five unelected lawyers have, once again, ignored the democratic process.

Regardless of how one may feel about gay marriage, it cannot be plausibly maintained that it is a “fundamental” American liberty, and wishful thinking does not make it so. Otherwise, every state at the time of the 14th Amendment’s adoption would not have limited marriage to one man and one woman, without doubting the constitutionality of such actions.

Justice Scalia put it best in his dissent when he wrote that the court’s “practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.”

The Supreme Court is not a legislature. Under the Constitution, the federal judiciary only has the power to say what the law is, not what it should be.

The “right” announced today by this court has absolutely no basis in the Constitution. Nor does it have any basis in the common law. Consequently, it should have been left up to the respective states to decide the controversial issue of gay marriage.”

Chris McDaniel is an attorney, conservative commentator and was a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in 2014. He has represented the 42nd District, which encompasses part of South Mississippi, since 2008. He resides with his family in Ellisville, Mississippi.
