Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Bilks Taxpayers out of Millions

Just over three years ago, subsequent to the Dodd-Frank financial “reform” bill passing, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau came into existence. As Elizabeth Warren’s intellectual baby, it should be no surprise to conservatives that the CFPB is an exercise in the biggest kind of government. However, in the third year of the CFPB’s existence, a bevy of stories have broken that underline that the bureau | Read More »

US Christian leaders must compel president to act on genocide in Iraq

Where are America’s moral clarity and outrage? Where is the shock and awe that will compel President Barack Obama to react to the Christian genocide in Iraq? U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., understands how desperate this situation is. He spoke three times on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives last week calling the situation a genocide and demanding action.

So Then What About Bowe Bergdahl?

The ISIS/ISIL nuts are not above trading a hostage for American dollars to later use against us. They made a ransom demand to the United States.

Doing so would only put more Americans at risk of being taken captive,” said the | Read More »

The New York Times reconciles itself to losing the Senate.

(H/T: Hot Air) It wouldn’t publish an article like this unless it had come to terms with the situation: A Republican takeover of the Senate this fall would hurt Mr. Obama for the final two years of his presidency, but it might help Mrs. Clinton if she runs to succeed him.

I Increasingly Find Conflict Between My Faith and Some Conservative Discourse

“On the last day there will be a narrow gate. That makes me pessimistic about my future in politics and the future voices on the right” Were I to recreate this site, I think it would have no comments section. Disqus is just horrible. I do not recommend it to anyone. And it just helps further what I see on so much social media these | Read More »

The failed rescue of James Foley and the price of prevarication

In the aftermath of the callous execution of photojournalist James Foley we are told that a rescue attempt was mounted to free him and other hostages: The Pentagon attempted a rescue operation to free James Foley and other U.S. hostages held in Syria by Islamist militants, but the mission failed because the hostages weren’t where U.S. planners thought they were, U.S. officials told NBC News | Read More »

Obama’s Irresponsible Leak of the Failed Operation to Rescue Foley

Yesterday, the news broke that the United States had tried to rescue James Foley and several other American hostages of ISIS somewhere in Syria.
