When the body of a people are altogether corrupt in their manners, the government is ripe for dissolution. Good laws may hold the rotten bark some longer together, but in a little time all laws must give way to the tide of popular opinion, and be laid prostrate under universal practice. Hence it clearly follows that the teachers and rulers of every religious denomination are bound mutually to each other, and to the whole society, to watch over the manners of their several members. — John Witherspoon, signer of the Declaration of Independence, “The Works of the Rev. John Witherspoon”, (Edinburgh: J. Ogle, 1815), Vol. IV, pp. 266-267, from “A Sermon Delivered at a Public Thanksgiving after Peace”

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.

Check and Mate

Dr. Robert R. Owens

According to Zach Taylor, an outspoken former Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent who is the chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, “As the government allocates resources to South Texas, it is systematically leaving areas within the U.S., as well as vast swaths of land along the border, unguarded.” Taylor continues, “This gives people that are trying to get their infrastructure, their personnel, their drugs, their dirty bombs, their biological weapons, their chemical weapons into the United States without being noticed” the opportunity to do so, “because this part of the border is open, it is not being controlled.”

SOS: Speaking of Seniors – Get More for Your Money

Woodrow Wilcox

So many senior citizens tell me about their money troubles that I’m always on the lookout for ways that seniors can make or save money. So, when I had chance to attend the REI EXPO in Schaumburg recently, I did so. I was not disappointed. I have been to many expos and seminar events. The REI EXPO was the best organized and best managed seminar event that I have ever attended. It was organized by REI EXPO from Kansas City, Missouri

The nation was taken by surprise on July 28 by an Associated Press (AP) report stating that the Obama administration was planning to arbitrarily implement executive action that could suspend most deportations, grant legal status to millions presently here illegally, and excuse visa overstays.

Why All the Global Antisemitism?

David Pepe

The question by many Jews today is why is anti antisemitism so rampant and where is the G-d of Israel to intercede on the Jews behalf? The Jew today has hardened their hearts against the G-d of Abraham , Isaac, Jacob and Moses and possess a resentment of heart and a bitterness against Almighty G-d for their horrific treatment over the centuries since 586 B.C.

JUDGE

Only Fools Don’t Judge

Dave Daubenmire

My experience has taught me that there is one Bible verse that all of America believes…those who call themselves Christians as well as those who do not. These two words have become the standard by which all Americans are to live their daily lives. These words are, “Judge Not…!”

"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
