Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers. — John Jay, First Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court

Gingrich Nails Media Hypocrisy Over Sandra Fluke With a Railroad Spike

Bob Ellis

If only Newt Gingrich were more consistently conservative, dang I'd love to back him for president! As he is so good at, once again he nails the hypocrisy of the "mainstream" media and the rest of the Left to the wall with a railroad spike. He points out all the things the media doesn't want to talk about, like President Obama's apology to our enemies while throwing our troops under the bus of Islamic extremism, Obama's defense of infanticide, and the fact that RomneyCare perpetrates an assault on religious freedom just like ObamaCare.

Church and State Coming Back Together

Bob Ellis

Some interesting developments are afoot in the 2012 presidential election...and the Left probably doesn't like most of them--and those they do like, the probably aren't happy that anyone noticed. It was no surprise to hear Barack Obama reach out to liberal black churches to support his campaign (though his call fro "congregation captains" was remarkable). But Newt Gingrich recently spoke from the pulpit of a Georgia church, and openly condemned Obama's anti-freedom and anti-Christian policies. Freedom is beginning to ring again in America's churches.

Gingrich Slams Obama, Media Bias Double Standard

Bob Ellis

I can't support Newt Gingrich for president with a wishy-washy record like his, but he deserves credit where credit is due. He is very good at keeping the focus where it belongs (on President Obama, and on the media lapdogs who support him) and defending even his fellow Republican competitors in the face of the real and greater threat. He did so during the debate last night by exposing media hypocrisy over Rick Santorum's contraception opinions, and Barack Obama's support of infanticide.

A Guide to Identifying Real Conservatives

David Bozeman

The defining traits of conservative leadership are too varied and detailed for this limited space.  But as the GOP’s 2012 nominating process continues, a few pertinent points bear further examination, lest the voters be fooled by spin-meisters and charlatans.

A Bad Deal

Bob Ellis

Who has supported cap and trade global warming taxes, government bailouts, amnesty for illegal aliens, and government control of health care? Take a look and see. the answer might surprise you (they should have included Mitt "RomneyCare" Romney in this deck of cards, too).

Snakes in the grass, and more on the way!

William R. Mann

Well, well, well. Do we now see snakes in the grass? Some of you may not handle well what I am about to offer up, so fasten your seat belts please. It seems Mitt Romney wants to do to all of the states what he did with RomneyCare in his own state. Have all the RINOs now stepped out of the background at last and shown their true colors?

Waiting for an Anti-Newt

David Bozeman

As a political junkie, my biggest wish was always for someone to put elite-media commentators and debate moderators in their place.  Now that Juan Williams and John King have both been savaged by the agile tongue of the great anti-Romney, I solemnly ask — is it too late to take that wish back? Discourse that was meant to be Reagan-esque now sounds calculated and predictable.

The Drudge Distort

J. Matt Barber

You’re being manipulated. A well respected, highly influential news source has cast aside all journalistic integrity to shill for the liberal, GOP establishment candidate in this presidential race. The New York Times, you say? MSNBC? The Washington Post? No. We all gave up on those “progressive” rags a long time ago. Regrettably, the latest media outlet to assume a decidedly yellow hue during this heated primary cycle is the Drudge Report.

Fearing Newt Gingrich

J. Matt Barber

What do establishment Republicans and liberal Democrats have in common? They’ve long labored under a shared misconception: conservative candidates are unelectable. In 1980, conventional wisdom held that Ronald Reagan didn’t stand a chance against Jimmy Carter. The GOP leadership, the mainstream media and liberal politicos alike lined up against the Gipper in an attempt to derail his presidential campaign.

Why Nativity Scenes Matter in the Public Square

Doug Carter

When Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, he explained that our freedoms come from God. “All men are created equal,” he says, and “they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” A nativity display on government property reminds us that all humans have unalienable rights- rights which cannot legitimately be taken away- because these rights come from God.

Bush Paved Way for Obama Executive Abuse

Robert Romano

To save American car companies in 2008, then-President George W. Bush opted to use $17 billion from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), which had been enacted to extend loans to financial institutions caught in the mortgage backed securities meltdown. There was nothing in the law that had allowed the bailout funds to be used for auto manufacturers. The Administration just made it up.

Congress Allows Obama to Slap Them With Cuba

Rick Manning

It only took a couple of days for the ink to dry on Congress' decision to fund the Obama administration's objectives for the rest of the year before it came back to bite them. The choice to fund all of the government for the next nine months, besides the Department of Homeland Security, means that Congress has little recourse to rein in Obama's Cuban bailout.

It is Time for a Christian Values Party

Dave Daubenmire

This is the way the American political system works. Democrats/liberals are the counterweight to Republicans/conservatives. The constant teetering gives the impression of movement, but the status quo rarely changes. This has never been more evident than what has occurred in Congress since Obama was ‘handed his hat’ in the mid-term elections; except nothing has really changed. The teeter has tottered to Republican control of the Congress, yet the policies that Obama has pushed forward still remain in place.

The Purpose of the Church

Michael Day

Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California has given us the idea of the purpose driven church and the purpose driven life. So, what are “the five basic fundamentals” of the Christian faith? Where did they come from?

"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
