Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

Iraq and the Bloody Price of Lies

Iraq and the Bloody Price of Lies

BY SELWYN DUKE Western civilization lied and people died. It lied, that is, to itself. I am referring to Iraq, but not to the hapless George W. Bush and the claim of WMDs’ existence, which wasn’t a lie at all. What is at issue here is more fundamental. It’s a lie that imbues Bushes, Clintons and Obamas, both the left and the right [...]

Benedict Obama’s Invasion of America

Benedict Obama’s Invasion of America

BY SELWYN DUKE If millions of soldiers from south of the border were flooding our nation for the purposes of colonizing our land, we would easily recognize the threat. And if some amongst us were aiding and abetting this invasion — purposely lowering border security to facilitate it — we’d know what to call them. And we’d know how they [...]

How Covering up Minority Crime Leads to Gun Control

How Covering up Minority Crime Leads to Gun Control

BY SELWYN DUKE Commenting recently on the Elliot Rodger killings, arch-leftist Michael Moore wrote that while “other countries have more violent pasts…more guns per capita in their homes…and the kids in most other countries watch the same violent movies and play the same violent video games that our kids play, no one even comes close to [...]

Leftists Cancel School Honors Night — Too “Exclusive”

Leftists Cancel School Honors Night — Too “Exclusive”

BY SELWYN DUKE It’s increasingly the case in America that the nail that sticks up gets hammered down. A case in point is Archie R. Cole Middle School in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. Writes East Greenwich Patch: Citing concerns about the "exclusive nature" of the annual honors night at Archie R. Cole Middle School, school officials have [...]

A Question for Those Who Believe In Homosexual Scouts

A Question for Those Who Believe In Homosexual Scouts

BY SELWYN DUKE Not satisfied with having pressured the Boy Scouts of America into lifting their prohibition against openly homosexual scouts, activists now want homosexual scoutmasters to be allowed as well. Equality, you know, is the order of the day. Yet the truth is that virtually all of you who advocate this social change operate with a [...]

Where is the rehabilitation for “racists”?

Where is the rehabilitation for “racists”?

BY SELWYN DUKE For decades liberals have lobbied against punishment and for rehabilitation. The argument was that a mugger or murderer was just a victim of his environment, someone caught in the crosshairs of bad nurturing and neighborhood. Accountability is unwarranted because the person bears no responsibility: he knew not what he did. And so [...]

The Liberal Media’s Donald Sterling Race-baiting

The Liberal Media’s Donald Sterling Race-baiting

BY SELWYN DUKE Never let a racial crisis go to waste is, I suppose, the credo of the Machiavellian mainstream media. Since the release of the Don Sterling audio, liberals haven’t missed a chance to play the race card for all its worth. One of the worst offenders is a New York Daily News columnist named Harry Siegel, who — in a piece of [...]

So What if Cliven Bundy is a “Racist”?

So What if Cliven Bundy is a “Racist”?

BY SELWYN DUKE For the record, I don’t believe Cliven Bundy is a “racist.” For the record, I don’t even care. Such indifference to that damnable failing, that thing we all know is the worst thing one can be, must make me a damnable man. But I am flexible. I just want equality. I’m perfectly willing to demonize “racists,” [...]

The New York Times Discovers the Rule of Law

The New York Times Discovers the Rule of Law

BY SELWYN DUKE Leave it to The Gay Lady to be a day late and a few brain cells short. The New York Times recently published an article by some journalism-school retread about the Cliven Bundy situation, a piece containing all the usual talking points about how the “racist” rancher’s reasoning is really risible. Rinse, wash and repeat. [...]

Vladimir Putin Caesar and Our Great Geo-political Turning Point

Vladimir Putin Caesar and Our Great Geo-political Turning Point

BY SELWYN DUKE We are witnessing, I believe, a turning point in geopolitical history, one future historians may analyze as we have the Roman Empire’s fall. Vladimir Putin is making a move — and it’s not just against Ukraine. It may not be just a move against Eastern Europe. It’s not even, perhaps, just a move against US world [...]
