Can a Liberal Be Christian?

    Can a Liberal Be Christian?

      Anna Marie Cox posed a useful question when she compared her faith to President Obama’s, who has been roundly criticized by conservatives such as my friend Erick Erickson, who wrote that Barack Obama is not a Christian in any meaningful way.  Cox asked “if Obama’s not Christian, what does that make me?” She announced her Christian faith to the world by writing “My understanding of Christianity is | Read More »

    Remembering Breitbart and His Message: Make enemies

    Remembering Breitbart and His Message: Make enemies

    “America has finally awoken to your Saul Alinsky bull**** tactics, and we’re coming to get you.” Andrew Brietbart, 2012 CPAC Three years after his death, and we’re still missing Breitbart. Why? Many reasons: because he was so good at exposing lies, half-truths and obfuscation, because nobody has stepped in to fill the void. Butt mostly because he was such a symbol of what we inherently | Read More »

    The Roberts Court and Obamacare

    Back when the Supreme Court decided NFIB vs. Sebelius- the celebrated Obamacare case- I distinctly remember watching the news that June morning.  Every broadcast was anticipating the decision since it was the last day of the term.  Every station was there and they all broke into their regular scheduled programming to bring the news.  They all erroneously initially reported that the law had been struck down | Read More »

    Will the real leaders please step-up

    About two months ago, the GOP took over both the House of Representatives and the Senate. After they finished patting themselves on the back at the rout they delivered to the Democrats, both houses re-elected their leaders, Congressman Boehner and . There was some minor resistance to them being re-elected, but it was token resistance at best. Those of us that live out side the | Read More »

    The ignored wisdom of Mr. Spock and the timeless morality play, Star Trek

    The ignored wisdom of Mr. Spock and the timeless morality play, Star Trek

    Surely there’s some significance in the fact that Leonard Nimoy’s death intersected precisely with the death of the Internet as we know it. And even if not, it might serve as a good opportunity to review another timeless intergalactic morality play about an Emperor who ruled the universe by fiat. Spoiler Alert: that one didn’t end well, for the Emperor. Death Star, proceeding according to | Read More »

    Obamacare Budget Recently Changed How Its Funds Cost Sharing Programs

    Yesterday it was reported that the Treasury Department paid $3 billion to cover Obamacare cost-sharing subsidies without Congressional approval. The heart of the dispute appears to be whether or not these subsidies were supposed to be funded via yearly appropriations or not. The House Ways and Means Chair, , argues the former. Health and Human Services, via the Department of Justice, argues the latter. In | Read More »

    Jeb Bush’s CPAC Debacle Wasn’t Saved By Bussing In Supporters

    Jeb Bush's CPAC Debacle Wasn't Saved By Bussing In Supporters

    Jeb Bush’s campaign is calling Dick Tuck to see if he’s behind the debacle he suffered at CPAC 2015. Gateway Pundit confirmed that Jeb bussed in supporters so it wouldn’t look like everyone in the room hated him (or worse, left).  But it didn’t matter, because they booed him anyway. And they left. And Slate got hold of the emails from Fritz Brogan telling his | Read More »

    We Need to Transform Politics from a Career to a Part-Time Job

    We need politics to become a part-time job. Career politicians are destroying this country. The more time people spend in Washington the more detached they become from the rest of the country. They live in a world where they are wined and dined and promised lucrative jobs should they ever get tired of their power trip (or have it cut short by voters who have | Read More »

    Gitmo Closing, Thomson Opening

    The federal Bureau of Prisons, Democrat congresswoman , and Sen. “Little” Dick Durbin have formally announced that the CRomnibus spending bill passed last December contained $58.7 million to get Thomson prison in Thomson, IL open. The Prisons warden and the Bureau of Prisons say the first 200 minimum security inmates will be incarcerated at the prison in the next two to three months. As I | Read More »

    Obama Administration Proposes Final Phase In Killing Small Business Programs

    In the last year the Obama Administration has implemented policies and legislation that will slowly dismantle all federal programs for small businesses. In his 2016 budget he announced his plan that will permanently close the Small Business Administration by combining it with the Department of Commerce. I predicted Obama would close the SBA by combining it with the Department of Commerce in 2008 after working | Read More »

    Net Nonsense

    Competition is GOOD. Period. Government regulation stifles competition. Period. Ergo most government regulation is NOT GOOD. This is especially true on something like the internet, that is a major mechanism of free speech today, both by individuals and by formal media (whether “mainstream” or not). Note, this administration is and has always been about CONTROLLING and TAXING the net, not trying to do anything else that | Read More »

    An open letter to Jeb Bush

    To Jeb Bush, It is one thing to actually be a one-percenter, be born choking on a diamond encrusted, gold plated, spoon. But those alone do not make you President. It is comforting for you to know that when you were born, your life was all planned out; the right schools, the right friends, the right jobs, the right cars, boats, vacation homes, but they do not | Read More »

    Can You Choose Who You Love?

    Ok, so I’ve had a lot of debate and talk over a particular topic; can you choose who you love?  This argument is used tremendously by the homosexual community to make a stand for gay marriage.  Let’s take this idea and remove the concept of homosexuality from the equation.  We can do this because of the claim that “love is love and all love is equal”. | Read More »

              Democrats favor Hillary Clinton for President simply because she’s female? Ignored is her shallow record as U.S. Senator, lack of genuine accomplishments and serious failures while Secretary of State?

    A Rose By Any Other Name

    The main lesson we learn from History is that we don’t learn from History.  The lack of historical perspective is, I believe, one of the major contributing factors in America’s current state.

    GOP Is Looking For "Captain America," But  Captain America Wouldn’t Outlaw Midget Bowling

    I’ve been perplexed for six years as to why Hillary-the-Inevitable has already been deemed our next president. Likewise, I didn’t understand the Dems insistence on continually pumping up the deflated War on Women balloon and attempting to send it aloft again…and again when it clearly hasn’t been ready for prime time since the ‘80’s. Mylar; perfect. Then, as I was reading Daniel Henninger’s column, Captain | Read More »

    Mini Obamacare Bailout? Treasury Covers Some Obamacare Costs Without Congressional Approval

    A few weeks ago, I wrote about how Obama’s budget contained a $22 billion student loan bailout to cover a massive shortage of funds for the Department of Education Federal Student Loan program. Because the program is categorized as a “credit program”, due to a “quirk in the budget process for credit programs, the department can add the $21.8 billion to the deficit automatically, without | Read More »

    The Obama Drilling Game

    The Obama administration’s Interior Department recently released plans to allow offshore oil exploration and drilling off the eastern coast of the United States from Virginia to Florida.  In the states affected- Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina and Virginia-, there is generally wide bipartisan support.  The opposition is coming from the environmental Left, Democrats in Congress, and some misinformed interest groups.  However, we need to | Read More »

    Back to Sun Tsu and The Art of War: Victory begins with a profound understanding of your adversary.  With the Somali Islamists threatening to attack American shopping malls as they did in Nairobi last year, and the President refusing to utter the phrase “Islamic terrorism”, it is no wonder that the portion of Americans who believe that we are winning this war is down to 15%. | Read More »

    Internet Freedom Comes from Markets Not Government

    Progressives are good at use and abuse of language, in particular defining their agenda items in terms of the broad goals rather than actual impact of their proposals. Hence, we see and hear earnest advocates for “net neutrality” argue about how great the internet is and would be if only the wonderful ‘net neutrality’ that it is built on it is guaranteed – by a | Read More »

    Obama’s Bizzaro Middle East

    The Obama regime has turned the entirety of the Middle East political landscape upside down. Apparently there is nothing of substance in this country’s historical alliance with Israel, and the regime is now behaving as if our relationship with sponsors of worldwide terrorism means more to us. And it’s nothing short of surreal. Just days ago, in a Q&A with , Secretary of State affirmed | Read More »

    Obama’s View of Life Through the Lens of Victimhood

Corn said he was surprised by O’Reilly’s “use of rhetoric that had a violent tone to it,” and while he isn’t personally concerned, he does have friends and family who are worried about him.

    Southern Baptist Functionary Lays Claim To Your Extraneous Income

    According to Southern Baptist Missions Board President David Platt, Christians ought to set for themselves a financial spending cap.

Interestingly, Platt is not providing this advice so that you might provide better for yourself in the rocky times ahead likely to result from a declining economy. Instead, | Read More »

    Picking a Hostage We Can Shoot

    Of course, it’s not the Republican party that made DHS funding a hostage in the fight over Obama’s executive order on immigration.  That was a decision of Democratic senators.  But it’s hardly shocking this happened, and that put the Republican Congress in a ridiculous position.  Americans don’t really want to cut off money to DHS.  How does letting that happen help the Republican brand?  It’s not realistic to think Obama | Read More »

    Decoding Obama: No, Muslims Did Not Found America

    Obama recently claimed, “Islam has been woven into the fabric of America since its founding.” This is both true and false. It is true in the sense that Islam posed a threat to America’s early existence. The North African Islamic Barbary Pirates proved to be a significant impetus towards uniting a divided colonial delegation to sign the Constitution and strengthen their Navy and Marine Corps. | Read More »
