Obama’s Legacy of Retreat, Shame, and Betrayal

Obama’s Legacy of Retreat, Shame, and Betrayal

Tuesday’s State of the Union speech was yet another glaring reminder of just how out of touch our president seems to be with reality and the true threat of radical Islam on the West. Our son Aaron was a US Navy SEAL. He’d seen the enemy our president refuses to acknowledge face-to-face. His heart had been seared by the blackness of those who exist solely to discharge the terror of Jihad not only on America, but the entire globe.

Is the Senate GOP Going to Cave on Amnesty?

Is the Senate GOP Going to Cave on Amnesty?

Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-OD) is blasting Senate leadership for sending a wishy-washy message on amnesty. Labrador drew distinction from 2014 election campaign promises to what is now taking place on the ground: “Last year the message was, ‘We cannot get our way because we don’t have a Senate [majority].’ Now this year’s message is, ‘We cannot get our way, because we only have 54 votes.’ That’s not leadership. That’s not why the American people voted for us.”

Why ‘Gay Marriage’ is Evil

Why ‘Gay Marriage’ is Evil

Truth is universal. It applies to everyone, including to the relativist who might prefer wandering aimless and far removed from logic’s narrow path, the wilderness of spiritual death. It remains true for all, for instance, that if one leaps from the Sears Tower, one will, absent some intervening salvation, splat below like a ripe tomato. Whether we like it or not, this is the natural order of things. The question at hand is this: What exactly is “same-sex marriage”?

Bankrupt? Who’s Bankrupt?

Bankrupt? Who’s Bankrupt?

A few years ago, with tongue securely in cheek, I wrote about the Fed buying treasury bonds. I tried using the absurd to make a point. I explained this would be like issuing your own credit card, buying everything you want, paying for the credit card with your checking account, and filling the checking account with cash advances from the credit card. I was just kidding. I never thought this would actually happen. It has. My problem is that it’s getting hard to be absurd in America today.

Firearms Rates and Murder Rates

Firearms Rates and Murder Rates

By now, you’re very familiar with the Left’s oh-so-predictable attempt to use every shooting by an amoral wacko (who often had his gun illegally) to promote taking guns away from the vast majority of law-abiding gun owners. Bill Whittle decided to take a fresh look at some of the pap the Leftists smear around.

Government housing is a bad idea

his past week, following the nation’s celebration of the birthday of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the U.S. Supreme Court heard an important case related to landmark law enacted during the civil rights era – the Fair Housing Law of 1968. This case highlights how some policies that followed civil rights era legislation – in this case government low-income housing projects – actually have hurt the very communities they were supposed to help.

The Global War on Terror is being used to bring in a Global Government of Terror

The Global War on Terror is being used to bring in a Global Government of Terror

“I remember when there were those who were exposing government corruption and it was called a ‘conspiracy theory.’ Now, 50 years later. I find that it was not theory.  In fact, it is now a reality.” (Jeremiah 11:9) – Posted from commenter at Bradlee Dean’s Facebook page I am humored by the sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity that some people in this country accept concerning their representatives on the topic of “Global terror.” Friends, it is not just America that I am now addressing, I am addressing the peoples, the governments and the incumbent representatives on a global scale. We see these officials act rather strangely after these supposed “terror attacks.” They seem to conglomerate on cue and ally themselves to condemn the acts, yet not the actors.  In the end, they ask the people to give up their rights while attempting to disarm them for the “global good.” Additionally, […]

Democrat Says Pot Legalization in CO Was Bad Idea

You know an immoral act is truly bad when a Leftist Democrat opposes it. Yet Democrat Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper says he wishes he could wave a wand and erase the 2012 decision to fully legalize marijuana in his state.

Why is the GOP Dithering About Global Warming?

Why is the GOP Dithering About Global Warming?

A recent poll found 91 percent of Republicans and 86 percent of Democrats agreed that the economy was a top priority, and 83 percent of Republicans and 89 percent of Democrats said the availability of good jobs was. Posturing on climate change won’t make a lick of difference electorally if the economy does not improve. So, get to work.

Pro-Family People: Let’s Stop Being Whores

Pro-Family People: Let’s Stop Being Whores

After the pro-life betrayal of the “Republican” Party on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act yesterday, RedState’s Erick Erickson is definitely fed up with the liberals-in-Republican-clothing that passes for a GOP majority in congress. He puts it plainly and bluntly: The Pro-Life Movement Must Stop Being Whores of the Republican Party.
