Live from New York! It’s King George the Third!!!!!!!!!

CNN’s Piers Morgan, a British citizen, has been in the news lately for his views on gun control. He’s for it.
He’s not so big on the U.S. Constitution.
As he made clear in this exchange with Breitbart’s Ben Shapiro. At one point, Morgan picked up a booklet copy of the U.S. Constitution Shapiro had brought with him, saying:
Morgan: “…you come in and brandish your little book…”
Shapiro: “That’s the Constitution of the United States.”
Later in the show was this exchange as Shapiro made the point about tyrannical governments turning on their own citizens:
Morgan: Are you saying you really believe your own government is going to turn on you in a way that you require an AR-15 to challenge them (garbled)…
When Shapiro says governments have in fact turned on people, citing the French Revolution in the 19th century and the rise of Nazis and Fascists in Germany, Italy, and Spain in the 20th century, Morgan is incredulous.
Shapiro did a superb job in making his case — but he left out one very notable example of a government turning on its own people.
That would be, of course, the British government. And the tyranny brought to American shores by Piers Morgan’s ancestors in the middle of the 18th century.
By the sheerest of chance — Morgan’s selection by CNN as a replacement for Larry King — America gets to see close-up the modern embodiment of just how America and the United States Constitution itself came to be.
Let’s go back in time, shall we? Not to France, Germany or Italy or Spain. But to America.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
