    Just a Reminder: Nikki Haley Remains Awesome

    The Myrtle Beach newspaper brings word to conservatives nationwide that Nikki Haley remains awesome.The Governor, who had a series of vetoes overridden by the state legislature because she dared to cut spending, has also wielded her veto pen and seen the legislature back down recently. But, what’s so awesome, is the tears shed by liberals. Get this — she, in the words of the newspaper, | Read More »

    Will Congressman Akin Put His World View Ahead of His Pride?

    The hyperbole from the left over Todd Akin has been disgusting. The man truly believes that children who are conceived out of rape should not be killed. The Bible teaches us that God raised us up from the dust of the earth and stitched us together in our mothers’ wombs. When you believe that, as Congressman Akin does, then it is asking much to tear | Read More »

    Break Up The Banks

    I hope the Romney campaign seriously takes on this idea. We have created a financial situation in this country, with Dodd-Frank and other policies, that have stacked the banks against the American people. They have become so massive that they can do pretty much what they want because they can hire all the lobbyists they need to get what they want from Washington and if | Read More »

    Be Ashamed

    When John Edwards was doing what he was doing with Rielle Hunter, much of the conservative movement was up in arms that the man had an affair on his cancer stricken wife, had a baby with the adulteress, and then tried to cover it up. The National Enquirer, of all places, was first on the story and it took the more traditional media forever to | Read More »

    Todd Akin’s Dumb Comment vs. Obama’s Support of Infanticide

    Todd Akin, the Republican Senate nominee in Missouri, made an inarticulate and rather dumb statement about rape and abortion on television in Missouri. He subsequently clarified his remarks. Congressman Akin, like many devout Christians, does not believe in a rape exception for abortion. Naturally, the very same left that gave Joe Biden a pass on his “put y’all back in chains” comment is horrid by | Read More »

    Evil Preaches Tolerance

    Archibishop Chaput of Philadelphia knows a thing or two about tolerance. I preached a Sunday School lesson about tolerance today. I’ll get into it later. Let me quote the Archbishop though. We need to remember that tolerance is not a Christian virtue. Charity, justice, mercy, prudence, honesty — these are Christian virtues. And obviously, in a diverse community, tolerance is an important working principle. But | Read More »

    Keep Running Joe: American Crossroads Hits It Out of the Park

    I’ve been critical of a lot of the Super PAC ads, but I have to say that American Crossroads has hit it out of the park today:That is staggeringly awesome. Go give them some cash so they can get that ad up everywhere.
