When you are a Democrat President of the United States and you begin to lose the mainstream media, which has carried your water and covered your backside from day one, you might be in real trouble. The latest piece from Ron Fournier of National Journal is a particularly good example of sharp criticism that President […]

I am becoming more convinced day by day that Leftists live in a parallel world where the things they imagine are reality, and reality itself is simply ignored as if it is someone else’s imagination. A Leftist journalist is a special inhabitant of this parallel world. It’s his or her job to promote the delusion, […]
Texas Senator Ted Cruz spoke today at the Iowa GOP “Summer Picnic & Luncheon” held at the Iowa GOP headquarters in Des Moines. The event got off to an interesting start, as some 3-4 dozen protesters made their way to the front door of the building and nearly pushed their way in. They were held […]
Let’s start with some full disclosure: As much as he annoys me on occasion, I like Governor Branstad. I especially like Lt. Governor Reynolds. So it’s a little hard for me to be critical of them over an issue that is something of a tempest in a teapot. Nonetheless, I think they’ve handled this speeding […]
Watching the Paula Deen controversy in the news the last few days has been a painful experience. There she is begging for forgiveness on You Tube. There is Matt Lauer asking her if she is a racist, and asking if her apology is all about damage control for her business interests. And then there are […]
It’s been all over the news the last few days: Exodus International, a “global outreach to churches, individuals and families offering a biblical message about same-sex attraction”, has announced its closure. Furthermore, Alan Chambers, Exodus International’s President, issued an apology for the “shame” and “trauma” that the organization had caused. Chambers stopped short of renouncing […]
I’ve been meaning to write a comprehensive piece on “Climate Change” for quite awhile, and while this post will certainly not be that comprehensive piece I had envisioned, it will briefly touch on an extremely important part and that is this: Even if we believe in what is known as Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW), it […]
“I dismiss the premise, the idea that these are scandals,” Carney said flatly, calling the controversy over Benghazi a “total concoction by Republicans,” and the IRS scandal merely “inappropriate behavior” by the IRS. Jay Carney has become absolutely breathtaking in his willingness to spout unmitigated crap to the American people. I don’t remember anyone even […]
We’ve all heard the stories by now: On March 1st, if the government doesn’t act to prevent it, the dreaded “sequestration” will happen. On March 2nd, babies will be thrown in the snow. Old people will die of spontaneous combustion. The rest of us be will be fighting over the odd can of dog food […]
We learned five things at Hillary Clinton’s testimony on Capitol Hill last week regarding the Benghazi attack: 1. She takes responsibility for the matter. 2. She gets a lot of communications via cable (over a million per year), and she can’t possibly read them all. 3. Congress won’t give her the funding she needs. 4. If […]
Fresh from his performance at President Obama’s second inauguration, James Taylor was interviewed by Nicholas Ballasy of The Daily Caller. Taylor made a number of interesting comments, but none more eye-opening than this one: “I think the nation is very divided on gun control, but I think the majority of us feel strongly — even the majority of gun […]
Two articles discussing the election results came out recently that I found rather interesting. One was written by Janet Daley of The Telegraph, and the other is written by Gerri Willis of Fox Business. They both make comparisons between the U.S. and Europe in light of the election results, and they both conclude we are busy […]
The following piece is by Judge Andrew Napolitano. It is a scathing assessment of President Barack Obama, but it also has within it some keen insight on how the country arrived where we find ourselves today. There is finally a sobering look at what probably lies ahead. Only in America can a president who inherits […]
I wrote this short piece a few years ago. I’m re-posting it because I think we all (myself included) need to hear this perhaps now more than ever. As we engage in political discourse in this election year, we Christians would do well in remembering that our divisions may serve to help no […]
Is there only one way that Evangelicals can approach on whether or not to vote for Mitt Romney? Is a vote the same as an endorsement? What is the nature of a vote?
“Incredibly, Jay Carney, White House spokesman, is spinning a complete fairy tale that the Islamists really like America and Mr. Obama. The murderers are just upset about a movie trailer that came out months ago. How stupid do they think we Americans are? If Mr. Obama really believes (this), he belongs in a straitjacket. If not, his […]
