Mo Brooks Stops The Outsourcing of Military Slots To Illegal Aliens In The NDAA

    Mo Brooks Stops The Outsourcing of Military Slots To Illegal Aliens In The NDAA

    No Empire Which Makes Poor Policy Is Immune To Downfall. For most of its history, Rome’s military was the envy of the ancient world. But during the decline, the makeup of the once mighty legions began to change. Unable to recruit enough soldiers from the Roman citizenry, emperors like Diocletian and Constantine began hiring foreign mercenaries to prop up their | Read More »

    Islamic State seizes key portions of Ramadi, we’re-still-calling-it-Iraq.

    Islamic State seizes key portions of Ramadi, we're-still-calling-it-Iraq.

    Well. I guess we now know why it was suddenly important to ask all the Republican candidates whether they would have gone into to Iraq, knowing now what we knew then.  It was done apparently to distract from the fact that the current Democratic President is still busy losing the war that the Republican President won for him: “Islamic State fighters took control of key sites | Read More »

    Obama: that chlorine gas Syria is using, well I’m fine with it

    Obama: that chlorine gas Syria is using, well I'm fine with it

    On April 22, 1915, the German army launched an attack to reduce the Allied salient at Ypres, Belgium. After the preparatory bombardment died down, the Germans released chlorine gas from canisters (5730 90-lb canisters) they had moved to the frontline trenches. The gas, which is heavier than air, was propelled by the wind and seeped into trenches manned by French reservists and colonial troops. Panic | Read More »

    NATO foreign ministers meet to discuss Russian aggression

    NATO foreign ministers meet to discuss Russian aggression

    I’m thinking of giving up blogging. Maybe I’ve lived too long (there are many who would vote ‘yes’ on that question). Maybe the world has changed in ways that leaves me a stranger. I could handle homosexual marriage and the idea that some people think Obama is an “orator” and the notion that three lesbians could “marry” and do whatever it is they want to | Read More »

    Defending Marriage & Religious Liberty: Where Is Texas?

    “Texas has two weeks left to stand up for religious liberty.” It sure didn’t take long to miss Rick Perry’s leadership in Texas. As I have written here many times, there is a war waging against people of faith and the values we hold.  Nowhere is that more evident than the war on marriage that soon likely will culminate in another Supreme Court decree, this | Read More »

    Iran bill passes; the Constitution continues to die

    Iran bill passes; the Constitution continues to die

    Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 64% and Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%, with the willful acquiescence of most of the GOP, have in one act abrogated their responsibility, gutted the Constitution, and put the US on an irreversible glide slope towards a nuclear war involving Iran. The House on Thursday passed legislation requiring congressional review of a nuclear deal with | Read More »

    Hey Free Beacon! Don’t Forget This George Stephanopoulos Story

    I call for the Washington Free Beacon to remember this story. I didn’t think at the time that it got the attention it deserved. But with the latest George Stephanopoulos story, I think it is time to revisit this. The Free Beacon exposed the Clinton Foundation donations and Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager interning for Stephanpoulos. The Politico story from 2009 pointed out that the Clinton | Read More »

    This!

    This is a must read by Howard Kurtz on the George Stephanopoulos mess. The key paragraph for me is this: For George to give money to the Clinton Foundation, out of all possible charities, knowing full well that Hillary was gearing up to run, is a grave error in judgment. For him not to disclose this to his network or to viewers—especially when he was | Read More »

    The Believer In the Public Square

    On Saturday, I’ll deliver my first  actual sermon at an Apologetics conference in Chicago.  I submit it here now for your consideration.  Frankly, if I keep staring at it, I’m going to make changes again, so I’m getting  it in the wild now.  It’s written to be spoken, which I have not done in a long time. This is actually one of the most difficult | Read More »

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Friends: Amtrak, Iraq, and the Latest from Capitol Hill

    Follow the Money: Ceres Conference 2015

    Just a short drive across the Coast Ranges of California from the drought stricken Central Valley, business elites are meeting at The Fairmont San Francisco this week for the annual Ceres Conference to advance the liberal environmental agenda. Of course, according to the event homepage, “climate change” is to blame for “torrential rain events” and “unprecedented drought” making “the time ripe for creative disruption”.  We’re | Read More »

    You’re Missing the Story on George Stephanopoulos

    You're Missing the Story on George Stephanopoulos

    Former Clinton employee George Stephanopoulos, who plays an objective reporter for ABC News on television, gave $75,000.00 to the Clinton Foundation. Shocker. No, not really. George Stephanopoulos has now decided to forego moderating a Republican Presidential debate. Shocker. No, not really. The real story in my mind is that the Republican Party ever thought George Stephanopoulos should moderate a Republican Presidential debate to begin with. | Read More »

    Russians: If Iran cheats there will be no sanctions

    Russians: If Iran cheats there will be no sanctions

    As we’ve pointed out over and over, the Obama administration, and to a great extent the toolish Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 45%, have been relentlessly lying about the nature of the Iran nuclear talks. The agreement that is being considered by Congress does nothing but lock in the forward progress of Iran’s nuclear weapons program while simultaneously removing sanctions. Not only does | Read More »

    Gay Marriage Activist was engineer in AMTRAK wreck

    Gay Marriage Activist was engineer in AMTRAK wreck

    Yesterday the left was all thigh-sweaty over the idea that the AMTRAK wreck in Philadelphia was a result of AMTRAK only getting north of $1 BILLION per year in federal subsidies and the GOP was to blame. In fact, their delight over the wreck and the potential of extracting more of our tax dollars to feed into the insatiable maw of yet another failed government | Read More »
