Liberals and the Truth
Obviously liberal leaders and commentators can’t read a legal brief or even listen to the arguments presented in the latest Supreme Court ruling. Telling the truth about their outrage that a family owned company should pay for abortions sheds light on their belief that abortion is simply another form of birth control. If that case was presented, many of the so-called critics of the decision | Read More »
VIDEO: Lessons from Lois Lerner
The IRS is one of the most feared agencies in the federal government. But Lois Lerner cracked the code.
Our team at ACLJ Films put together a digital short to show just how absurd the IRS, media, and Democrat excuses for “lost” emails really are.

How to Turn College Campuses Red
For my first post, I would like to touch on an issue that is very close to me, and is a goal that I am working to achieve each day. Most people overlook the issue, or don’t even think about it, but it can change elections for Republicans and conservatives for years to come. During my short time thus far as Chairman of the Temple | Read More »
DailyKOS Petitions to pack SCOTUS with Ginsburgs
I’m really not sure where DailyKOS expects to go with this petition but I’d LOVE to see how many signatures they get. It would be very telling traffic-wise to know numbers on this one. Anyway, this pop up greeted me today as I went over to peruse the opposition.
The Watercooler ~ The National Psychology of Barack Obama’s Presidency
Granted, we still have over two years left of a two-term presidency that has marked the nation in many ways. The first black president, the first super-radical progressive in my generation to ascend to such heights of power — at what some of us would describe as a startling (and unmerited) pace. There was just too much romanticism to resist the lure of Barack Obama’s | Read More »
Wagging US by the Condom
Headlines everywhere have pronounced the recent SCOTA rulings a major blow to Obama, but in regards to the Hobby Lobby case it may turn out to be actually the opposite. No mainstream outlets are talking about the economy, employment, foreign policy, and health care; where the President is failing on all fronts. The only thing this administration has been even halfway successful in lately is | Read More »
SBA Expected To Release Fraudulent and Falsified Small Business Data Soon
Every year about this time the Small Business Administration (SBA) issues a press release claiming the federal government barely missed the 23% small business contracting goal required by law. In reality, the Obama Administration has never come anywhere close to reaching the minimum 23% small business-contracting goal. Based on all the information I have been able to obtain under the Freedom of Information Act, I | Read More »

There is no moral equivalence between Israel and Palestinian groups
Moral equivalence between Israel and the Palestinian leaders turns a blind eye to many things, but the main things are innocence and intent.
There is no moral equivalence here. Israelis don’t use children as a shield for rocket launch sites. They don’t send young men and women to blow themselves us in Palestinian cities, markets and buses. The various Palestinian groups and Hamas do. They do it regularly.

Solution to a crisis manufactured by the Chicago Mob in Washington.
Anyone that listens to talk radio knows that conservatives have big hearts, and are willing to open their pocket book for the worlds children. We support missions to feed the children across the globe. So of course the Chicago tyranny wants to use that against us. As Nancy Pelosi has declared, this is not a crisis it is an “opportunity to care for the worlds | Read More »

Articles of Impeachment- Part 4: Illegal Libyan Intervention
One area where there is some confusion, from a constitutional standpoint, is the conflict between the power of Congress to declare war and the president’s powers as Commander-in-Chief. This tension was put to the test with Obama’s intervention in the conflict in Libya and possible violation of the War Powers Resolution. To understand the possible violations, a timeline of events is necessary. On February 14, | Read More »
A Voice of Reason on the Hobby Lobby Decision
As I was scrolling through my Twitter and Facebook feeds yesterday and today I was shocked to see how many of my friends and followers had seemingly become legal experts over night. It seemed that every single person had an opinion on yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby. While I do not claim to be any sort of expert, it did not | Read More »
Headline Potpourri #56
The cover story of the May 2014 issue of the Atlantic Monthly is titled “Closing The Confidence Gap: Even successful women lack self-assurance at work.

So long as there is not an atmosphere of outright abuse or verbal belittlement going on, is | Read More »
Taunting is SO Unbecoming of the President of the United States
The Taunter-In-Chief has spoken on immigration….again. He will act if Congress won’t with his infamous pen and phone. Speaker Boehner told him last week he won’t bring up Senate Bill S. 744. Period. And so he goes to his teleprompter to taunt the Republicans into acting on a flawed bill. If I was a fly on the wall in that meeting, this is what I’d | Read More »
CHANGE BECAUSE ITS NECESSARY
The Asbury Park Press editorial “Don’t snub vocational training” and proposed State legislation to expand that curriculum were right on target.

Kentucky Governor’s embarrassing ObamaCare distraction from Hobby Lobby failure
Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear did not veto budget language earlier this spring defunding ObamaCare in the Bluegrass State because, he said, federal funds would be available to fund it throughout the two year budget cycle. That was a lie and he just admitted it in writing. In an executive order filed with Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes late yesterday, Beshear attempted for the third time to administratively create | Read More »

SCOTUS RFRA Hobby Lobby
Letter I wrote to many Newspapers and Magazines… and encourage others to write on topic… Dear Editor: SCOTUS directly referred to RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act); which gotta love when Democrats do something to pretend to care about Religion/Faith and it comes back to bite them; and the Left – as usual – runs around and LIES and deflects to do anything/everything but discuss the | Read More »
I have a dream
I have a dream that someday soon this great nation will restore itself from the ruins in which it currently sits. Right now, it is a nation divided. Its people have no loyalty to an idea they intend to collaborate on to achieve. They are motivated for the most part by self-interest and by divisive group and industry interests. This cannot stand. Already it has | Read More »
Open primaries with open runoffs are a bad idea
By now it’s pretty obvious that Thad Cochran actually lost the Republican primary runoff to Chris McDaniel, probably by at least 8 points. But because Mississippi employs some anachronistic primary voting laws, known as open primaries with open runoffs, the Barbour machine, the NSRC, and Cochran’s thumb-sucking campaign staff was allowed to enlist anyone who hadn’t voted in the Democratic Party primary to vote in the Republican runoff. This was perfectly legal to do, although I doubt that it was done perfectly legally. It certainly was not done with honor.

Obama Responds to Hamas Terrorists’ Murder of US Teen with “Strongest Possible” Meaningless Words

Hobby Lobby Decision isn’t About Birth Control, it’s About Bullying
The Supreme Court made the right decision by ruling that the owners of Hobby Lobby are not required to pay for certain forms of birth control that conflict with their religious beliefs. Make no mistake- I have nothing against birth control. Nor do I think that the birth control methods in question are abortifacients. My opposition to ObamaCare’s contraceptive mandate is that the government is | Read More »
Mr. Burton is an Idiot
MR.BURTON, a cheap,scheming, capitalist-hating, penny-pinching customer I had the displeasure of having to suffer yesterday, thinks democracy and capitalism are separable.

The Watercooler ~ Illegal Immigration Costs California Taxpayers $25.3 Billion per Year

Random Observations on Government

Despite interest rates close to zero throughout his terms, during the first 5 years of his presidency the | Read More »

Hobby Lobby and the Amusing Meltdown on the Left
The reaction on the Left to the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision has been colorful if nothing else. When not urging that Hobby Lobby stores be burnt to the ground, some have urged organized F#!@-ins at the stores “in the glitter aisle.” With commentary like this, they certainly do more harm to the cause of feminism than any Supreme Court decision could ever achieve.

First Post-Hobby Lobby Decision Halts Abortion-Pill Mandate for Nonprofit
In the first post-Hobby Lobby decision issued by an appellate court, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals has granted an injunction, halting the HHS Mandate, to a nonprofit religious organization.
The key aspect of this new decision is that the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision was confined to for-profit businesses; this decision is the first application of the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding religious liberty to cases involving nonprofits. It marks another step towards the abortion-pill mandate’s defeat.

Marita Noon: Overreaching federal government makes strong men weak
A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument. I cited numbers such as the 600,000 acres the monument encompasses when the private property is included; 1906 when the Antiquities Act—which allowed President Obama to sign the national monument proclamation—became law; and 95—the number of families who’d receive direct negative impacts from the designation. Now the numbers had faces. I heard their stories. I saw the tears. I felt their pain.

If you don’t support Israel, what else don’t you believe?
Politically, culturally, and theologically, American Christians should support Israel, as a Jewish state, as a free nation, and as the Holy Land set aside for God’s purposes. Believing otherwise is counter to scripture, Christian faith, and American interests.

The Watercooler ~ Scalawags and Scoundrels Abscond with the Vote
Well, it’s a done deal. The Republican establishment has proven themselves to be every bit as low-down, dirty-rotten as any leftist Dem. The McDaniel campaign has now found 1,500 invalid votes. Volunteers working for tea party challenger Chris McDaniel in Mississippi say they have already found 20 percent of the invalid double-votes they need to cancel Sen. Thad Cochran’s business-funded runoff victory. “We’re finished with | Read More »
The Case for American Exceptionalism
The trendy thing is to perceive the notion of American Exceptionalism as narrow-minded, politically incorrect, and/or just plain uncool. It’s not that self-deprecation, humbleness, or anything of that sort is in. God no. It’s just that anti-AE is the type of liberal dogma that has been perpetuated, thanks to everyone from flower-smelling liberal professors, to our very own mom jean-wearing, never-had-a-real-job-community-organizer President.

Heists and Revolution
In December, 2008, the Russian government announced the creation of a state commission to study the legality of the sale of artwork, jewels and artifacts by the Soviet government in the 1920s.

That episode, with its dark consequences for Russian culture, provides a remarkably vivid illustration of | Read More »

Best Way to Prevent Illegal Immigration from Central America: Stop the Train in Mexico

EPA’s climate-change plan based on convicted felon’s “playbook”
It just keeps getting deeper. The steaming pile of bovine excrement on which the Obama administration bases its policies on global warming climate change is a lie engineered by liars, and now felons are added to the club.
A Senate staff report from the Committee on Environment and Public Works reveals the EPA’s most famous felon, John Beale, as the architect of policies leading directly to Obama’s ability to effectively close coal-burning power plants. Beale, you may remember, is the EPA employee who claimed to be a CIA spy, and earned his $200,000 salary by doing, literally, nothing, for years.
