• Does Congress Even Matter Anymore?

    Congress is no longer an effective check on the Executive Branch. It is a radical assessment. Not one reached lightly, but it also happens to be true. What else can one make of President Barack Obama’s most recent usurpation of Congress’ constitutional powers, arbitrarily changing federal law and granting millions of illegal immigrants amnesty, and then Congress after a brief fit voting overwhelmingly to grant him the funds to carry it out?

  • The 75 Republicans Who Funded Amnesty

    Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today condemned 75 House Republicans who voted to fund President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty for 4.5 million illegal immigrants with U.S.-born children: “The vote to fund President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty will have a profound negative impact on our nation for years to come. The 75 Republicans who lost courage have aided and abetted the shredding of the U.S. Constitution by giving Obama the funds to rewrite federal law.”

  • What is Wrong With Murdering Someone?

    Lying and moral relativism are rampant in America today. Consider the problem with them. If relativism were true, then lying along with stealing and murder are all perfectly acceptable as well. The more people adopt relativism as their belief system, the more lying, stealing and murder can be expected.

  • Netanyahu Demonstrated Statesman’s Handling of Truth

    Greatness in statesmanship is a rare commodity. Not every generation is blessed to know a truly great statesman. Those who have never seen greatness in a leader have no idea of how to identify or measure greatness in their own generation without having learned history sufficiently well to see their present leaders in the context of world events.

  • Republican Legislature Upholds Transgender Agenda in Schools

    On Tuesday, the South Dakota Senate Education Committee heard testimony on HB 1195 to “declare void the transgender policy of the South Dakota High School Activities Association and to establish a determinant in identifying a student’s sexual identity for the purpose of participation in high school athletics.” The “Republican” supermajority legislature killed the bill on a 4-3 vote.

  • God or Government?

    If our society accepts the notion that the source of our liberty is government rather than God, then that liberty is no longer secure. What the government gives, it can take away. Thomas Jefferson rightly asked, “Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?” Every American should ask themselves this same question.

  • Pelosi and the Condescension Netanyahu Drama

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s “condescension” claim sets a new height on the bar of hypocrisy. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was condescending during his speech before Congress and other guests? How about you, Nancy Pelosi?

  • Boehner Caves to Obama’s Amnesty

    “We were never going to win in Congress.” That is the epitaph spoken by Speaker Boehner ally Representative Tom Cole on the collapse of House Leadership’s resolve to legislatively fight Executive Amnesty. It may also be the final nail in the coffin for the notion of co-equal branches of government, as President Obama has already announced that he is considering using unilateral executive actions to ban ammunition and raise corporate taxes, on top of his massive Internet regulation announced last week.

  • Billionaires and Billions of Food Stamps

    The United States ranked second among new billionaires, contributing 57 new billionaires. Who is the most famous rookie on the billionaires list? Michael Jordan, just doing it! Just under 23 million households or 46 ½ million persons rely on food stamps. Twenty percent of American youth are now dependent on food stamps.

Key Quote

I have always been puzzled by the inability of some political and media types to understand exactly what is meant by adherence to political principle. All too often in the press and the television evening news it is treated as a call for “ideological purity.” Whatever ideology may mean—and it seems to mean a variety of things, depending upon who is using it—it always conjures up in my mind a picture of a rigid, irrational clinging to abstract theory in the face of reality. We have to recognize that in this country “ideology” is a scare word. — Ronald Reagan, 1977 CPAC speech

A Sandy Foundation

Scientism, naturalism and atheism are the foundational trinity of modern secular thought. A rejection of all that is sacred and pure is the new normal.

AL Supreme Court Pushes Back Against Federal Marriage Tyranny

It is so refreshing to finally see at least one state (Alabama) stand up and push back against the tyranny of the federal government and judicial activists. Six Alabama Supreme Court justices issued an opinion today that federal tyranny doesn’t alter the judges’ duty to administer state law, which defines marriage as between only one man and one woman.

SPLC Bullies MS School District into Bowing at Hijacked-Rainbow Altar

Last week the anti-Christian hate mongers of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) successfully bullied a Mississippi Gulf Coast school district into giving obeisance to the homofascist agenda. It was the Moss Point School District that caved in the face of lawfare waged by the SPLC on behalf of a homosexual high school student who claims she was bullied at school. Did this really need a lawsuit?

Net Neutrality Wakeup Call for Obama Supporters

President Obama’s famous pen and phone were hard at work last week, as he launched an attack on some of his closest allies. Using 80-year-old telecommunications law, the Federal Communications Commission, under what appears to be direct orders from the President, announced far-reaching rules to govern the Internet, effectively turning it into a public utility. Now, it seems as if some of the President’s left-wing Silicon Valley supporters are not amused.

Religious Freedom Again Treated with Contempt by South Dakota ‘Republicans’

The South Dakota Legislature recently had another chance to consider protecting the religious freedom of South Dakotans from homosexual activists and others who seek to force their will on others. HB 122o was submitted to protect the free exercise of religion in South Dakota–something under heavy attack nationwide and which may soon be under full attack here in South Dakota. Yet the “Republican” supermajority legislature voted to kill the bill in committee 10-3.
