Jimmy Carter Invites the Money Changers Back to the Temple
And Jimmy entered the temple and invited in all who sold and bought in the temple, and he set up the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons.

Kelo Decision A Rousing Success
Nine years ago the US Supreme Court, in an opinion authored by noted Second Amendment authority John Paul Stevens, eviscerated the “takings” clause of the Fifth Amendment. That decision, Kelo v.

Jews In Ukraine Told To Register Or Leave
Yet another foreign policy success of the Obama administration and the isolationist wing of the conservative movement is shaping up nicely Ukraine.
