A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government. — George Washington

Senator Rand Paul Speaks at Values Voter Summit

Bob Ellis

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was the first speaker at today's opening day of the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C. He spoke of violence throughout the world, violence in the womb here at home, as well as the moral and spiritual crisis our nation faces.

Getting Underway at the Values Voter Summit

Bob Ellis

I had the honor of having breakfast with former US Attorney General Ed Meese at the Liberty University-sponsored breakfast. Ambassador Barukh Binah, Deputy Chief of Mission at the Embassy of Israel in Washington, DC., was the keynote speaker. I also learned that in addition to GOP Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan speaking this morning, GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney will also speak.

Covering the Values Voter Summit

Bob Ellis

I flew to Washington D.C. today to cover the Family Research Council's Values Voter Summit. This year's event should be especially exciting for a number of reasons. It's an election year, GOP Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan will be speaking, and tensions are elevated with the shooting of a FRC security guard by a homosexual activist less than a month ago. Should be interesting.

Senator Ted Cruz: Person of the Year 2013

Rick Manning

No politician had a greater impact on the past year than freshman U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Cruz made his biggest mark when he and fellow freshman Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) led a last-ditch national grassroots effort to defund ObamaCare before the law went into effect fully. Imagine how many Senate Democrats wish right now that they had heeded Cruz’s entreaties and agreed to delaying or defunding it for one year.

Ted Cruz Won After All

Rick Manning

Ted Cruz won. Senate Democrats are scrambling to delay the implementation of the very individual mandate they fought to keep in place by choosing to shut down the government. Now, they apparently have seen the light, no longer bamboozled by Obama’s promises that the $600 million healthcare exchange website would work and that all would be OK in the Sebelius fantasy world if the mean Texan just stopped talking.

GOP: Explain Values to Millennials, Don’t Abandon Values

Bob Ellis

There is a growing contention that "young adults haven't rejected the case for marriage; they simply haven't heard it." Exactly. Very few people, even in conservative circles, can articulate why marriage is important and must be defended from counterfeiters and other attackers. In the past, when society was strong and values were passed on from one generation to the next by stable family environments, such things were simply understood. Now we find ourselves--largely due to our own laziness and negligence, conservatives--in a culture where we must explain what was once obvious. If we consider the values that produced the greatest nation in history important enough to maintain and pass on, we are going to have to start explaining and articulating those values to the culture, and help them understand why they are so critically important.

Ted Cruz isn’t abnormal; Washington is

Star Parker

Only in Washington is it considered abnormal and obstructionist for a member of Congress to ring the alarm about the loss of freedom in America, to take a stand to restore it, and suggest that Americans, particularly low-income Americans, should be able to decide what kind of school they send their child to and to keep and save more of their hard-earned income. Only a left-wing press can conclude that the abnormal obstructionists are those taking a stand for freedom in a country that is supposed to be free.

Republican Senator Doesn’t Trust Republicans

Bob Ellis

Looks like I'm not alone in my distrust of "Republicans" to do the right thing. An elected Republican in the U.S. Senate says he doesn't trust "Republicans" any more than he trusts Democrats to do the right thing.

Star Parker Launches Radio Show

Bob Ellis

If you enjoy Star Parker's column, you're going to love her new radio show. I've heard her speak live a number of times at the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C. as well as heard her interviewed on news shows, and she's a firebrand for traditional values. A former welfare mother who had multiple abortions, when God got ahold of her life, she radically changed. Now she's on a mission to help change the world, and change it for the better.

Violence Against Women Act Shreds Rights

Gina Miller

On Thursday, the House voted to approve the latest incarnation of the Violence Against Women Act. So, it’s a done deal, and it’s not good. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor threatened conservatives who had opposed the new version of the Violence Against Women Act, and many Republicans bowed down in obedience to their debilitating fear of standing on conservative principles.

Rush Was Right: The War on the Suburbs

Robert Romano

“What better way to give a boost to the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Act and the remaking of American neighborhoods than to start injecting illegal immigrant populations into targeted cities and towns in the suburbs all across the country?” That was national radio talk show superhost Rush Limbaugh commenting on a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulation, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.”

The Power of the Gospel

A.J. Castellitto

The power of the gospel must never be overlooked. It lives in the hearts of men. It annihilates the evil nature and iniquitous disposition. It resides in the heart and soul of Nicky Cruz. Nicky Cruz was a young, cold, heartless, murdering, New York City gang leader when he was subdued by the only power outside the grave that could stop him...

Impeach Barack Obama, the Anti-American, Marxist Fiend

Gina Miller

Whether it’s the insane, deliberate exploding of the welfare rolls, the wicked, near-daily flood of lawlessness from Obama, his administration and federal departments, the treasonous Obama administration-orchestrated illegal alien invasion of our nation from the southern border, the swapping of terrorist enemy combatants for an Army deserter, his EPA’s war on our energy supplies, his war on our military and so much more, we are witnessing the defeat and destruction of the United States of America by enemies within.

Has Obama Sold Out “His” People?

Dave Daubenmire

Be sure to forward this commentary to everybody you know who voted for Barack Obama. Especially if they are black. Especially if they are burdened by white guilt. Especially if they think that Obama cares about “regular” people. Especially if they think he gives a rip about poor black kids. Especially if they think he wants to bring healing and equality to the races. Especially if they are Christians. Especially if they think he is one of them.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
