Is Islam Compatible with Free Speech?

Briefly summarized, the city of Dearborn, MI, which has a large Arab American population, annually holds an Arab International Festival that is free and open to the public. As | Read More »
What the Heck is Happening in Georgia?
Freak out!!!!!! At least that seems to be the GOP’s reaction to the polling in Georgia. Relax people. We are going into overtime for sure in the Senate race. That runoff will be in 2015. Georgians will have to endure two of the smuggest politicians ever to run for office for two more month. But hey! For those of us with radio shows in Atlanta, | Read More »
Bristol Palin, Chrissy Teigen, and the misogyny of the American Left
This week has provided an interesting example of how, in the left’s mind, the famed #WarOnWomen only pertains to women who are on the left or with whom they have sympathy. Earlier in the week, the infamous Palin family brawl that eventually saw 24 year old Bristol Palin knocked down, was a news item. This was a shameful incident by any standards. But what was | Read More »
New Ebola screening is an epic failure
It certainly didn’t take long for that system to break down. On Wednesday, CDC Director Tom Frieden announced new screening for all passengers traveling from one of the nations with an active Ebola outbreak: People arriving in the U.S. from Ebola-affected countries in West Africa will be actively monitored for symptoms for 21 days after they land. The new monitoring regime announced by Centers for | Read More »
Michelle Nunn Doesn’t Understand Basic Economics
Michelle Nunn has been getting a lot of traction on the “shipping jobs overseas” rhetoric in an effort to paint her opponent, David Purdue, as unsympathetic to American workers. It’s a tactic toward anyone who is in business to them demagogue for shipping jobs overseas, just like they did to Romney in 2012. Michelle’s cheap shots have lead her to create an ad campaign specifically | Read More »
Al Gore Lies; Ted Lewis Already Explained Why Mother Nature Could One Day Die
We all know that modern, industrial society has carelessly wounded the Earth’s environment. Sometimes we ask ourselves some fairly deep questions. What role did we have in creating this mess? What type of people cause it? What can be done? All of these questions have apocryphal answers. Ted Lewis, in one of the best noir fiction novels ever; gives us intelligent speculations. The novel Jack’s | Read More »
This is Horrifying
As you know by now, ISIS was able to capture a military shipment dropped into the Syrian/Iraq area that was meant for Kurds. The shipment of weapons and supplies for the Kurds was intended for use combatting ISIS. What is so horrifying about all this is why the Department of Defense says ISIS capturing the pallet of supplies is “not significant.” Here is Jim Sciutto | Read More »
#GASen: Obama Knows What a Michelle Nunn Victory Would Mean
The Georgia Senate race is one of the closest races this election cycle. Democrat Michelle Nunn has found herself in the complex situation faced by so many other red state Democrats this cycle of being a member of Obama’s political party while trying to get the votes of a conservative electorate greatly dissatisfied by the President’s performance in office.Thus far, the polls indicate that she has | Read More »
Out of Ignorance or Out of Spite?
On more than one occasion in the last couple of weeks (the most vital couple of weeks as we near election day), President Barack Obama has said things that are, simply put, strategically dumb. It’s more than likely that Republicans, barring a tremendous disaster, will take a majority in the Senate this year. The Democrats, even House ones, are struggling in key races, and groups | Read More »
White House pretends that not trusting them on immigration is crazy-talk.
There are times when I don’t really get this administration’s messaging strategy. The White House said Wednesday it was “crazy” to attempt to divine the president’s post-election plans for an immigration executive order based on a procurement request issued by the Department of Homeland Security. “I mean, this is crazy,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said, adding he would caution reporters against “making assumptions” based on | Read More »
I noted last night that we do not hear of new converts to Christianity going on to kill, behead, or blow themselves up. More often, though, we are finding in the relativistic, amoral modern West that new recruits to Islam are doing just that. A convert in Oklahoma beheaded a lady. In the last two days various new converts to Islam in Canada have engaged | Read More »
The White House Gaslights America on Immigration
The evidence by this point has become pretty overwhelming that the White House plans some sort of mass amnesty via executive fiat immediately after the elections have concluded. Disgruntled Democrat Hispanics have openly declared that Obama has promised them as much, and earlier this week, Breitbart News revealed that the Administration was placing a supply order that would enable them to issue 34 million green | Read More »
California Instructs Churches To Bow Before The Golden Idol of State Power.
4Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, 5That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:Daniel 3:3-4 If you had any doubts over whether the State of California respected the | Read More »
A Denuded Victory
If the polls are to be believed, the Republicans are more likely than not going to regain control of the Senate next year. Probably, they will increase their margin of control in the House. These are good things, I guess, in the sense that all elected Democrats are pro-abortion and removing one from power is always a net positive. So a week from Tuesday I | Read More »
With 12 Days to Go, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce Wants Republican Leaders to Oppose Religious Liberty
Georgia is facing a very close election. Public polling has the Democrat leading the Republican for the U.S. Senate seat. The Republican Governor is neck and neck with Jimmy Carter’s grandson. And Georgia’s Chamber of Commerce today wants Georgia’s Republicans to publicly stand against Hobby Lobby, the Little Sisters of the Poor, and religious liberty in general. Many of the state’s Republican leaders will do | Read More »
