The war on religious faith continues
There probably hasn’t been a Supreme Court decision since Bush v. Gore, and definitely since Citizens United, that has been as maligned and mischaracterized as the Hobby Lobby case. Those opposing the decision are crying Armageddon! as though the proverbial gerbil of Religious Freedom was seeking a source light in the alimentary canal of the secular left. In the immediate aftermath of Hobby Lobby, the | Read More »

President Obama Refuses to Treat the Border Crisis Seriously
Right now, a legal and humanitarian crisis is unfolding on our Southern border. And our President simply cannot bring himself to take the problem seriously. By all accounts, tens of thousands of refugees have spilled across the border, many of whom are unaccompanied minors or single parents. A large plurality of the accumulated mass are not illegal immigrants seeking to come here for work, but | Read More »
Gun Control Will Never Stop Barbarism
This Man Does Not Care About Laws During the 48-hour period of May 30-June 1, there were 16 incidents of gunfire and 19 people hit by bullets. Only 2 suspected shooters were arrested. Overall, roughly 25% to 30% of nonfatal shootings result in an arrest, compared with arrests in about 80% of homicides, according to an NYPD spokesman.(HT: New York Daily | Read More »
The Christian Thing to Do
“He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing.” Deuteronomy 10:18 (ESV) “I do not think we should let these people stay here. But I think while here we should, in private charity, show mercy and give comfort where we can.”Christians are used to hearing people say “it’s the Christian thing to do.” Most often, it | Read More »
Let’s Not Impeach Obama
Impeaching Obama Not Her Best Idea “So Sue Me!” Taunts His Most Grandiloquent Emperor of The Sand-Trap. If Barack Obama can’t do anything intelligent to better the American Nation’s commonweal, then perhaps John Boehner can distract attention away from the emperor’s sartorial elegance. I have high hopes that John Boehner’s lawsuit threats are ultimately rhetorical. He was smart enough not to | Read More »
America, This Is What an Obama Administration IRS Cover-Up Looks Like
Less than two week after learning of the IG’s report alleging that the IRS targeted conservatives and one month before she “apologized,” Lois Lerner was covering her tracks at the IRS.
“Congress has asked for emails … so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails.”Read More »

Background is, somebody from the White House called to complain to Cuellar about his call for the White House to do more about the current border crisis. “Who called you?” [Fox & Friends] | Read More »

Senate Democrats outraged by the result of that decision are taking the only step available to them to reverse the decision, gut religious liberty.Read More »
John Boehner is Right on Impeachment
I maintain that John Boehner’s lawsuit against the President is a political stunt. There may be some plausible legal grounds to get the suit into court, but even if successful President Obama will be out of office before such a suit is finally resolved. It’s a political stunt wasting taxpayer dollars. I maintain that the House Republicans should be more interested in doing what is | Read More »
The stress of citizenship
I once worked for a company that put its employees through one of those lengthy performance evaluations that included psych-test essay questions, such as “How do you define ‘stress,’ and how could you reduce the amount of stress in your workday?” I was young and new to such evaluations, so I’d never really thought much about “stress” before. I was convinced it had nothing to | Read More »

Your W, T, and F of the Day Brought to You by Jen Psaki and the US Department of State
The State Department’s spokesman, Jen Psaki, was asked about Hamas’s role in the unity government within the Palestinian territory. QUESTION: Well, what about the – what about Palestinian President Abbas sending a strong message to Hamas? I mean, you are recognizing his government, of which Hamas is a part. I mean, doesn’t he bear some responsibility for reining in Hamas? MS. PSAKI: We don’t recognize | Read More »

Republican Fantasy Fan Porn vs. Democrat Fantasy Fan Porn
There is a dark undercurrent in the Harry Potter world. Abnormal and obsessed fans generate fan pornography based on the fantasized love interests in Harry Potter. Yes, be as disturbed as I was to learn this. But Washington politicos do the same. Not a day goes by without some left leaning reporter trotting out new theories about how Hillary Clinton will lead neocons and moderate | Read More »

August is never good, September could be worse
August is when things happen in politics. Typically, it’s a scandal, and it hurts sitting presidents and their parties. Right now, the crisis at the southern border looks to be the next big thing about to really bubble over (it’s bad now, but reports of terrible diseases among the camps could make this a lot worse). It’s a terrible situation because the Democrats were banking | Read More »

New York Times supports Hamas human shields while condemning Israel
The Hamas terrorists controlling Gaza never waste a crisis. The senseless murder of teenager Mohammad Abu Khedir by Israeli teens, acting out revenge for the triple kidnapping and murder of teens Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Frankel, was used as justification for massive rocket barrages on Israel.
Those barrages have now reached Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv.
But while the Israelis prepare for a long, deadly war with warplanes, 40,000 reserve troops, ships and tanks, Hamas is preparing for a different war. Hamas’s war is fought with thousands of cheap rockets, human shields, video cameras, and the world press.Read More »
