Gilmore speaks during a Unity Dinner in Iowa

Jim Gilmore: Alive and Kicking

With so much attention focused on the entirely unforeseen popularity of that bombastic billionaire, it is easy to forget that Virginia has its own candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. He’s a man who made many friends and few enemies while serving as the 68th Governor of The Commonwealth.  A man respected by both the […]

    The Trump CardColumns, Politics

    You may hate Donald Trump.  Or love him.  The polls suggest you are probably in one camp or the other.  But the talk has already turned from whether he is simply a vehicle for protest to whether he can actually sustain his remarkable early dominance of the Republican presidential race. Fully realizing the likelihood of […]

    Mandatory or ForbiddenColumns, Policy

    The distinguishing feature of the emboldened left has increasingly become their thinly-veiled desire for control of as many areas of our lives as is humanly possible.  And the most effective way to do so is to pass laws and regulations that reduce individual freedom by categorizing things in one of two ways: Mandatory or Forbidden. […]

    Rethinking WColumns, Featured, Policy, Politics

    Isn’t revisionist history great?  It allows us to constantly re-jigger the balance sheet on historical figures, events and patterns with the benefit of 20-20 hindsight.  It reveals seismic shifts in the way people think.  It turns everyone into a Monday morning quarterback…long after the season is over. Revisionist history most often takes hold many years, […]

    The Enduring Legacy of ObamacareColumns, Politics

    Let me start by saying this is not a prediction of how the Supreme Court will rule in the days ahead on the Obamacare case before them.  Nor is it a rant against the evils of Obamacare, or a proposal for how to replace it, as my able BD colleague has outlined. No, what is […]

    Hillary: Demagogue-in-ChiefColumns, Policy, Politics

    “What is happening is a sweeping effort to disempower and disenfranchise people of color, poor people, and young people from one end of our country to the other….Republicans are systematically and deliberately trying to stop millions of American citizens from voting.” That was not said by Frederick Douglass in the 1860’s, or Medgar Evers in […]

    NSA: Major Media MessColumns, Policy

    While the fourth amendment was invoked by many interested parties during the recent heated debate about the NSA on Capitol Hill, it was not the only constitutional protection in play. We are all well aware that freedom of the press was so widely viewed by the founding generation as critical to the burgeoning American republic […]

    Waco: Sending a Dangerous MessageColumns, Featured, Policy

    We all know much about the first and second amendments in the Bill of Rights, and perhaps the fourth and/or fifth and/or tenth.  But when was the last time you thought or heard about the Eighth Amendment?  It states unambiguously:  Excessive bail shall not be required….nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
