In light of the unambiguous and unbroken history of more than 200 years, there can be no doubt that the practice of opening legislative sessions with prayer has become part of the fabric of our society. To invoke Divine guidance on a public body entrusted with making the laws is not, in these circumstances, an “establishment” of religion or a step toward establishment; it is simply a tolerable acknowledgment of beliefs widely held among the people of this country. — Marsh v. Chambers, July 5, 1983, http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/historics/USSC_CR_0463_0783_ZO.html

Just Wondering

Jim Bowman

Who among us remembers the rotund Nikita Khrushchev from our Cold War days? I know it’s a generational thing. Yet, here was this enemy, sitting in the midst of the enemy’s chamber called the United Nations, making a boast that now seems to be somewhat prophetic yet at the time produced nothing but genuine laughter. I wonder how many of my generation remembers his words? Very close to its fiftieth anniversary date of June 19th, 1962, Khrushchev predicted, “The United States will eventually fly the Communist Red Flag…the American people will hoist it themselves.”

Lies About ObamaCare: Are You Really Surprised?

Michael Peroutka

In the liberal mind, the progressive agenda is good for Americans but Americans are just too dense to see it as clearly as liberals do. Liberals are therefore reluctant to let the rest of us make our own decisions. This reluctance leads them to lie to us for our own good. Is any of this a surprise to you?

ObamaCare: Seeing Through the Lies

Rick Manning

Obamacare was built and sold on a series of lies. To quote an insurance company commercial, everyone knows that. We've known it since then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi uttered her famous line, "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it." Now Jonathan Gruber's admissions made in what must have been a self-congratulatory tour of elitist institutions destroy any legitimacy the law once had.

A Debate Still Worth Having

Erica Wanis

I can appreciate that the pro-choice camp is tired of playing defense and might be refreshed to see someone rising from the ranks to offer positive affirmation. However, simply refusing to acknowledge the wrongness of an act doesn't negate its wrongness. A thief can stand up and announce to the world that he's a thief and not sorry about it, but at the end of the day, theft is still wrong and everyone knows it. Lying, cheating, stealing, murder... these basic offenses against nature and against one's neighbor have been prohibited in virtually all cultures at all times throughout human history.

Abortion in ObamaCare

Guest Author

After four years of denying the law covers abortion-on-demand, the General Accounting Office (GAO) finally blew the lid off the ObamaCare lie and confirmed what groups like FRC have said all along: that Americans are footing the bill for the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion in history. And making matters worse, the entire administration refuses to admit it. Remember “we have to pass ObamaCare to find out what’s in it?” Well, now, “you have to buy it to find out what’s in it.”

Bob Ellis

It didn't take long for South Dakota U.S. Senator-elect Mike Rounds to move from merely cheering for the Surrender Caucus of gutless "Republicans" in Washington D.C. to officially joining their ranks.

"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
