German Churches Struggle With the Concept Of Christianity
v Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. This is the Great Commission. It is the foundation of Christianity. As Christians it | Read More »
Is Metrojet Flight 9268 Russia’s Version of the USS Cole?
It’s always a tricky proposition, believing what the Russians say during the course of any crisis. Caginess, particularly with the West, is practically ingrained in Russian DNA and Putin, who is a creature of the KGB, is no different. So as the Russians remain tight-lipped about the downing of Metrojet Flight 9268 – which most of the West is publicly assuming was caused by an | Read More »
More Potential Problems in Ben Carson’s Recollections
As might have been predicted, the largely discredited Politico story about Ben Carson’s “scholarship offer” from West Point has caused the media to question pretty much all aspects of this story. The next shoe to drop has been the revelation that General Westmoreland was not in Detroit in the days around Memorial Day in 1969. This sounds like a pretty damning piece of information, but | Read More »
Chris Christie’s Backhanded Support Of The Pro-Life Movement
Last week, Chris Christie was in New Hampshire and he gave a talk at a town hall meeting on substance abuse that has taken on nearly a viral nature. In some ways it was good. It reminded us of why a decidedly un-telegenic guy like Christie can arise to national prominence. It makes you wish you could clone the guy and have him run for | Read More »
Ben Carson’s Vetting By An Situationally Curious And Maybe Racist Media
This has been one of the most shameful weeks in the history of American media, and that covers a lot of waterfront. The scurrilous and obviously false attacks by POLITICO were only the worse. CNN dispatched people to try to find Carson’s 8th grade classmates to verify their memory of… wait for it… Carson’s memory. I have no idea how that works. I can give | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Signed An NDA That Could Have Her In A World Of Trouble
President Lyndon Johnson will be remembered for many things. Signing the Freedom of Information Act is often treated as a footnote for his legacy but actually has much more importance. People within the federal government like their secrets and it is only because of FOIA that information the public should have anyway, is released to the public. This recently happened with Hillary Clinton and she | Read More »
The Lionheart of 2016
Richard the First, or Richard the Lionheart, was a beloved figure in England, known by his subjects as a fierce warrior and an all-around righteous man. He spent his younger years fighting to secure his lands and build a unified base. Following his ascension to the throne, he spent virtually no time in his land, preferring to use his seat to wage even larger fights. | Read More »
Nothingburger Demolished: Marco Rubio Releases All Credit Card Payment Information
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94%, as promised, released all his AmEx bills from his time in the Florida legislature and the Washington Post and POLITICO find nothing amiss. Stunned? Yeah, me, too. “People need to understand what they’re talking about. It wasn’t a credit card. It was an American Express charge card secured under my personal credit in conjunction with the [Republican] | Read More »
Supreme Court to rule on Obamacare’s ongoing war against nuns.
The best way to win a public relations battle against of an order of nuns who are dedicated to serving the elderly poor is to run away and hide.

Starbucks: The Caffeinated Grinch Who Stole Christmas?
The holidays are approaching, so get your cultural outrage meter ready. If you’re watching the calendar, Thanksgiving is two weeks from this coming Thursday, and the Christmas season will soon be in full swing. At many stores, the holiday season begins with Black Friday shopping, that zoo-like day-after-Thanksgiving (or sometimes night-of-Thanksgiving) event which highlights our obsession with stuff. Right now, businesses already show signs of | Read More »
The Fix Is In On Hillary’s Emails; Top Secret Now Info Downgraded To “Sure, WTF”
A week ago I posted on how Hillary Clinton was “too big to jail” in the case of her gross mishandling of, and apparent trafficking in, classified information. Now we see how this sad story is going to end. After exerting public pressure on the FBI Director to pull his punches in the investigation, now one of Obama’s appointees, the rather hapless Director of National | Read More »
.@Politco And Reporter .@elizacollins1 Continue To Lie About Ben Carson
Yesterday, in the space of only a few hours, a cheap, dishonest attack on Ben Carson by POLITICO was beaten down. By the end of the day, not only had they changed their headline, they had surreptitiously re-written the story. One would have thought they would have learned their lesson about this kind of douchebaggery, but no. This is a left wing propaganda organ that | Read More »
How Marco Rubio Shuts Down A Gotcha Question And What It Means
For me the highlight of this election season is the GOP having a handful of candidates who can duke it out with the media… and win… on a regular basis. While Jeb Bush, John Kasich, and Lindsey Graham get that stunned-mullet-deer-in-the-headlights-hog-staring-at-a-wristwatch look, many of the others don’t. The beatdown that Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz delivered to CNBC moderators was little short of epic. In fact, entire religions | Read More »
Why Did Obama Just Give the South China Sea to the Chinese Communist Regime?
Not content to diminish American power on his watch, Barack Obama seems dead set on a course of action to ensure that he locks in that sadly reduced America for his successor. For some years the Chinese have been aggressively pushing their influence into the South China Sea. This is not some obscure region. Forty percent of the world’s trade and fifty percent of all | Read More »
