Evolutionists Outraged At County Fair Creation Science Displays
The July 2014 cover story of Earth: The Magazine Of The American Geosciences Institute warns “Creationism Comes To The County Fair’. It is further cautioned “County fairs have proved good places for creationists to reach captive audiences”. But aren’t these venues less captive than those in which evolutionists purvey their own propaganda? For example, no one is forced to attend the county fair. However, unless | Read More »
‘Tis but a scratch
“Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake”. ~Napoleon Bonaparte. (BrainyQuote) As the 2014 elections draw closer, it seems more and more likely that the Democrats have two strategic options: 1) an all-out assault on Republicans, slinging as much mud as they can, ideally adding a few rocks to their mud by recording a Republican candidate saying something stupid, which they then apply | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ State of the State (and a couple territories) Primaries
July has been a strange month politically. With virtually no primaries scheduled, we have been left with watching the debate over whether or not to begin impeachment proceedings for President Obama, lamenting over what to do with the current influx of illegal immigrants on the border, rooting for Israel in spite of Kerry, and waiting to see if Chris McDaniel will prevail in his fight | Read More »
Mainstream Media “Fall Over Each Other to Support” Hamas Terrorist Propaganda
It has been well documented that Hamas, a recognized terrorist organization, has been intentionally firing thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians while using Palestinian civilians as human shields, basing their attacks in hospitals, and hiding their rockets in schools.
Despite these grave war crimes and violation of any semblance of humanity, the mainstream media has bought into Hamas’s propaganda campaign. The terrorists want to be viewed as the victims, and somehow the media is buying into that narrative hook line and sinker.

Dr. Ben Carson’s alternative to Obamacare – Part Five
In the usual back and forth between the Democrats who want socialized medicine and the rest of the world who don’t, the Saul Alinsky-ites of the left often rail about the lack of an alternative from the Republicans. Besides the fact that this is total bovine fecal matter—Bobby Jindal’s proposal for example—there have been many alternatives offered to improve our previous system without nuking it | Read More »

What if Hamas chartered a liner, put 1,000+ Palestinian kids aboard, and sailed for NYC?
Author’s mea culpa ( and some necessary background perspective): I admit it. I used to like George Will. There, I said it. I always did. Maybe it’s because we share a love for the great game of baseball, America’s national pastime. So much so that more than a year ago, I posted a diary on Red State: “An open letter to George Will: Time to | Read More »
Help! My paradox meter broke: an “atheist church”?
The last time I was in Houston, I had to change the fuse in my paradox meter after meeting a self-described pro-choice Republican woman, who was also a lawyer. I told her at least she was better than Wendy Davis, to which no response was offered. I said it a second time, and with a puff of white smoke, the paradox-meter died.
Dang, the fuse just blew again, reading Time’s August 4 issue, Religion section article “Atheist “Churches” Gain Popularity—Even in the Bible Belt” (behind a paywall). Yup, the “Atheist Church” they wrote about is in Houston. I think the heat and humidity is corroding people’s grey matter in that city.

Regime Change ≠ New Direction
Despite what some may claim, there is indeed a dime’s worth of difference between the two parties. Just don’t expect to find it among the party’s elite. The party leadership insists that they must be supported to win, despite spitting in our faces whenever they get the chance. The recent campaign debacle in Mississippi recently brought this issue to a head, leading some to declare | Read More »
Barack Obama Is Like A Serial Arsonist
I’ve been thinking a lot about this poseur in the White House, all of his many crises and it dawned on me that he is like a serial arsonist. He’s not particular about the size of the fire he starts, as long as it burns a sufficient amount of time to distract the populace and send the “opposition party” running in the planned direction to try and | Read More »
The Invisible Man
On January 20, 2009, Barack Hussein Obama became the 44th President of the United States after running on a campaign platform of hope and change. He also pledged to fundamentally return America to her course of greatness. Eight years after 911, six years into the Iraq war, and only a year into the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, Americans came out in droves | Read More »

Iowa Democrats Look To Use Closed Juvenile Home For Illegal Immigrants
Iowa Democrat Gubernatorial candidate state Sen. Jack Hatch and former Iowa Democrat congressman Dave Nagle are joining forces with a local chapter of the AFSCME in an effort to reopen a juvenile home for use as a shelter for illegal immigrants. The Obama administration is scrambling to find space that it can use to house the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants, both adult and | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi’s Perversion of Piety: A Page Out of the Proof-texting Playbook
Nancy Pelosi’s Biblical proof-texting reveals her inherent dishonesty and willingness to pervert piety for political ends. Her recent claims prevent non-Christians from knowing the Triune God and his redemptive plan outlined throughout Genesis to Revelation.

The ObamaCare of the Airwaves?
The Federal Communications Commission needs spectrum and its Chairman Tom Wheeler has come up with a plan. He has proposed a so-called “reverse auction” in which the Commission will establish a price it is willing to pay for “blocks” of spectrum and those broadcasters who are interested in selling will unload some of their spectrum rights. As the Hill reports, “In the auction, the FCC will buy back | Read More »
Why I’m beginning to disagree with Sarah Palin about the impeachment of Barack Obama
I love Sarah Palin, but I’m beginning to disagree with her on impeachment. Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution says the following about impeachment: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

In case you hadn’t noticed ( or forgotten);Thad Cochran is in line to be the next chair of the Senate Appropriations committee
Much has been written about the contested Mississippi GOP primary. How Haley Barbour and the GOPe..along with their K street pals… will do anything to hang onto power, etc…. As one who has followed the primary in Mississippi carefully for months, I suddenly realized that one simple fact has rarely, if ever been mentioned: If Thad Cochran is re-elected, and the GOP takes control of | Read More »
Marita Noon: 2007–a great year for growing bad legislation like the ethanol mandate
Compared to 2007, several things are different today. The big one is the economy. We, as a country, were still living large in 2007. We were also still dependent on oil from overseas and our purchases were funding terrorism. Plus, it was, then, generally believed by many that our globe was warming—and it was our fault because of burning fossil fuels. When presented with the idea of growing our gasoline, even though it might cost more, it seemed worth it—after all, what was a few cents a gallon to thumb our nose at the Middle East and save the planet?

CNN promotes Hamas while U.N. asks for more case-fires
The U.N. Security Council held a midnight session…they want an immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. They wanted it on record before dawn of the Muslim holy day Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan.
The milquetoast Security Council achieved nobody’s wishes. The Palestinians want the U.N. to force Israel to withdraw, so they can restock their terror tunnels. Actually, they didn’t give a reason, so we have to assume that one since it’s what they’ve done in the past.

RSC Tried To Solve GOP’s Women Problem
Single women could be a deciding factor in the 2014 midterms. Democrats know they’re the key to keeping the majority in the Senate, so how do conservatives push back against war on women narratives? The Republican Study Committee hosted a panel about these issues facing conservative women earlier this month. The Wall Street Journal Kimberley Strassel, who moderated the panel, said reaching women voters is | Read More »

One major difference today is their reliance on cherry picked falsified “studies” that are designed with the end result | Read More »
The State of the Senate Races

Some Senate races have not been set yet as the GOP has not chosen candidates in potentially competitive primaries in Kansas, Alaska and Minnesota.

Obama’s “Inversion” Crusade Is Really Just Another Attack On Businesses

Inversion is not a “corporate loophole” and companies who do so are | Read More »

The Underlying Question Being Missed In the “Beck Debate”
I have watched conservatives carry out a vicious circular firing squad on this issue from day one.

Waging War On Women Using Birth Control As Bullets
The mainstream rallying cry about the “War on Women” implies that “reproductive rights” is solely a woman’s issue and benefits women. But, the truth is that women are targeted, experimented on, and even killed through “family planning” initiatives that encourage women, not men, to use life-threatening medication. I know– because birth control nearly killed me. No feminist acknowledges the negative consequences created by primarily promoting female “birth control.” One significant consequence is that it reinforces long-held, and profoundly sexist, cultural and legal norms that ignore male responsibility and culpability, which actually creates tangible gender inequalty.

Sen. Ted Cruz Warns House of Senate Trojan Horse on Immigration
Yesterday, in a meeting with 20 House conservatives that make up the Conservative Opportunity Society, Sen. Cruz warned the House not to pass any immigration bill to fix the crisis at the border. He advised that the Senate would gut any House bill on fixing immigration and insert parts of S. 744, the loathed bipartisan Gang of Eight Immigration Bill from 2013. And here I thought | Read More »

Outrage: the FEC tramples Paul Ryan’s First Amendment rights
Wisconsin GOP Congressman Paul Ryan’s leadership PAC, Prosperity Action, asked the Federal Election Commission for permission in advance of doing something fairly logical. They want to buy copies of Ryan’s published book, The Way Forward: Renewing the American Idea, to give away to supporters, in conjunction with a book tour. Of course they’d also help promote the book, since its author is also their candidate.
In an Orwellian reversal, the FEC responded to Ryan’s innocuous request with not one, but two drafts. The second, “Draft B”, would be a major policy change, calling the PAC’s purchase a “third party contribution” with “excessive personal use.”

Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto – The cure for global warming
Long considered the bible of socialist thought for progressives, Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto has been an essential tool—kind of like a hammer and sickle—for politicians, union members, and tenured college professors to spread the idea that Marx’s work in the area of economics laid the basis for understanding labor and its relation to capital. In the first two sections of his book, Marx describes the | Read More »
