Rep Justin Amash Wants to Have His Cake and Eat It
has some ‘splaining to do. But first, some background. Speaker showed some backbone on the House floor yesterday, as that body passed a funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, with amendments attached which would roll back DACA—something that’s long overdue—and remove funding for President Obama’s executive edicts (they weren’t executive actions because he simply spoke them into being like Zeus from Olympus) dealing | Read More »
Montgomery County MD Officials Conspire With NARAL Against Pregnancy Crisis Centers
I know that this is Breeanne Howe’s bailiwick, but I didn’t think it should wait for her next installment of The Vine. Besides, I think The Vine lifts me up more when it’s about positive pro-life stories, and this one is decidedly sad. Actually it makes me burning, seething, mad. Lifesitenews did some digging into the too-cozy relationship between Montgomery County, Maryland officials and pro-death | Read More »
Why the Left is Hyperventilating Over Dynamic Scoring
The Left is so used to controlling information that they believe it to be their birthright. For nearly 100 years, they’ve assumed the mantle of impartiality simply to cover their own failed policy aspirations. Now they are all going bat-guano crazy because the Republican majority in Congress wants to make a small dent in the gleaming fact-fogging machine the Left has built, by directing the | Read More »
Obama Cares THIS Much About Islamic Terrorism
When the world press took the White House over its knee for President Obama’s absence at Sunday’s anti-terror rally in Paris, the official response might well have been “my dog ate my homework.” The White House cited security concerns and the fact that the rally came together quickly, in about 36 hours. [White House press secretary Josh] Earnest said presidential or vice presidential security for events | Read More »
French PM Didn’t Want Netanyahu in Paris, Declares French Republic Failed If Jews Flee
For all the pageantry displayed in Paris in support of Charlie Hebdo’s free speech, and against the terrorists who slaughter innocents, France remains one of the least hospitable (read: most anti-Semitic) places for Jews in Europe. While the New York Times concerns itself with a possible backlash against Muslims in France, and supporting those who refuse mandatory military service in Israel, it’s clear that Jew | Read More »
Nous Sommes Charlie – Beating The Kobayashi Maru
In the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo attacks and related hostage-taking and murder at a Kosher meat market, the Left, the media, and much of the world is pretending they can beat the Kobayashi Maru. There is no gaming the system to defeat this foe. There’s no tiptoeing around terms like “backlash” and “profiling”. This is not about religion, which is made plain by the huge gathering in Paris. It’s about humanity. And humans have to take sides. Failure to choose a side means you have taken the side of those who seek to overthrow civilization and replace it with their brand of tyranny, because unless you oppose them, you will be under their boot.

The Prophets of Politics Are Angry
It doesn’t take anything more than the possibility of a Christian right candidate like Mike Huckabee running for president to turn the Tea Party-aligned Republican mood rings from algae green to obsidian black. The reaction runs the gamut from not taking Huckabee seriously in spite of his tenure as a two-term governor and solid campaigner, to outright hostility that someone who believes the Book of | Read More »
Mike Huckabee Quits Fox, Exploring Possible 2016 Run
Governor Mike Huckabee is considering a run for president in 2016. Huckabee’s Facebook page carried this message tonight: This evening I wanted to share with you some news that is very personal to me. Because you have been such a good friend and a strong supporter of all my efforts, I wanted you to know first that tonight I will do more than just say goodnight | Read More »

2015: The Year of Neutrality
As a New Year’s resolution, I thought I would look at making 2015 the Year of Neutrality. The idea of Net Neutrality is so absurd that it I thought we might apply it to everything. Here’s just a few I came up with. Airline Seat Neutrality. Oh, you bought a business class seat? Great! You paid the airline to fund that seat and we’re very proud of | Read More »
