“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 [...]
Just yesterday, President Obama said this: ”I’ll work with anybody who wants to work with me to continue to improve our health care system and our health care laws, but the law I passed is here to stay.” Count this as one of those times when I desperately hope I’m wrong. Perhaps more so than any [...]
“The consequences of the things that you put in your regulations lack common sense…if the federal government can regulate the kind of relationship between parents and their children on their own family’s farm, there is almost nothing off-limits in which we see the federal government intruding in a way of life.” - Kansas Republican Senator Jerry [...]
“The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened. The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway [...]
Note: This piece is from 2008. I try to post it annually in honor of Earth Day. A few weeks ago we were making a presentation to a prospective customer and one of his employees, when someone mentioned that a particular feature of our products and services would help in compliance with environmental regulations. ”Yeah”, said the employee, “We’ll be [...]
The two-step that was so clumsily danced by the Susan G Komen organization last week brought a great deal of chatter on the internet as well as in the mainstream media. It was on Facebook where, as usual, I saw most of this chatter, and once again I found myself a bit surprised by what [...]
Here’s some random observations on the caucus season which has just concluded and we’ve either enjoyed or endured, depending upon your view: Much has already been said about the Kent Sorenson switcharoo, but one thing I haven’t heard as yet is discussion on the implications of the flap upon the Christian faith. Sorenson, Michele Bachmann, [...]
