A Few More Thoughts on Noah
I get that some of you like art house Euro sci-fi movies. Not me. The scene where Noah is explaining the history of the world and shows silhouettes of people killing each other from tribal men Roman centurions to red coats fighting yankees to the world wars was just silly to me. I did not go for a Christian film or a Biblical film. I | Read More »
Mark Begich, carpetbagger.
Hey, I’m just following the same rules that Begich stalking horse Put America First PAC is trying to implement: “A Super PAC in support of Sen. Mark Begich (D., Alaska) is attacking his Republican opponent for having a home out of Alaska despite the fact that Begich himself owns a home in Washington, D.C.” Essentially, one of the Republican candidates (Dan Sullivan) bought a house | Read More »

Darren Aronofsky’s Noah
“[W]e might should consider burning at the stake any Christian leader who endorses this movie.” I don’t get all the claims of radical environmentalism in Noah. I saw it last night. I did not draw out of it the environmentalism. In the movie, Noah took the position that all mankind had corrupted the earth with sin and God intended to wipe them all out. Noah | Read More »
House Leadership Makes Another End-Run Around Conservatives
Once again, House GOP leaders have shown why it is important for us to elect enough stalwarts to replace the entire leadership team. Every Republican complains about spending. One establishment Republican is even running an ad promising to “castrate” D.C. spending. Yet few of them are committed to blocking a new spending increase, much less roll back existing programs. Today, House leaders brought a bill | Read More »
Openly Gay Speaker of Rhode Island House Resigns After FBI Raid
Gordon D. Fox, the out-n-proud gay (NTTAWWT) Speaker of the Rhode Island House of Representatives, who spearheaded the drive, so to speak, to make homosexual marriage legal in Rhode Island has resigned.

Yes, the government can run out of money
While we wait for the meat wagon to arrive and carry off what’s left of Matt Yglesias after Erick Erickson’s epic ground-and-pound this morning, let me add that the popular liberal fantasy of unlimited government money is one of the most dangerous ideas in the modern world. Our children will grow to hate us if we don’t kill this idiotic talking point stone dead. The | Read More »
Who is Lying to @RebeccaKiesslin?
Rebecca Kiessling is a real pro-life warrior. Her mother was raped. Thankfully, Rebecca was not aborted, but adopted. She is an advocate of the personhood amendment and spokeswoman for Personhood USA. I was kind of flattered she would tweet at me, but then became really disturbed that someone is lying to her. She thinks I am helping create a new pro-life group in Georgia that | Read More »
6 Reasons Why #IA-SEN Candidate @BruceBraley Has Had A Very Bad Week
Iowa Democrat Bruce Braley’s Senate campaign has had a rough week, which has only gotten worse after the now-infamous video of Braley at a Texas fundraiser deriding Chuck Grassley as “a farmer from Iowa”. How bad? Let’s review 6 ways: 1. Everybody’s Piling On The commentary on Braley’s gaffe has been brutal. The Iowa papers have been all over the story, with heavy coverage in | Read More »
A French Solution To The Crimean Crisis
The French establishment has spoken on the annexation of Crimea. Writing in The Christian Science Monitor, Jacques Attali. former advisor to French President Francois Mitterrand and founding president of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, says hey, what’s the big deal, the bitch had it coming. (For maximum effect, you must imagine all blockquotes being read by Pepe Le Pew.) Can I Dismiss the | Read More »
Outstanding New Video From Ted Cruz: Repeal? Yes We Can!
The latest video from the Cruz campaign will get any conservative heart pit-a-patting. Ted Cruz has a way of speaking directly to the inner voice of the conservative base in America. But this is not due to calculation. It’s because it’s an inner voice that he shares. The rejection of an overbearing government trampling on the freedoms, liberties, and sanity of Americans is as natural | Read More »
Ebony News Editor Jamilah Lemieux Has No Time For ‘White’ People Like Raffi Williams
This morning a news editor from Ebony decided to show her ignorance and racism to the world. In a series of tweets Jamilah Lemieux, the News and Lifestyle Editor for Ebony Magazine, called Dr. Ben Carson insane for his beliefs on race, politics, and “anything else other than his medical work.” Her objections appear to be that Carson is conservative to some extent and therefore any ideas he may have on race are forever tainted. Indeed, even his own blackness should be questioned.

Perpetuating Unemployment and Phony Spending Offsets
**Update: The following senators voted for cloture to open debate on the extension of unemployment benefits with the ridiculous offset provision: Ayotte, Coats, Collins, Corker, Heller, Johnson, Kirk, Murkowski, Portman, and Toomey.** What happens when instead of fighting the premise of creating a permanent unemployment entitlement, many Republicans focus on offsetting the cost of the extension? We get the extension without any offsets! Tomorrow, Senator | Read More »
The Georgia Life Alliance
We had hoped to sit back and make it through this weekend, but opponents are attacking us as “the establishment” trying to weaken the pro-life cause. In fact, in an email from a reporter, I was asked about us having a less hard line position than the other organization. I’m talking about the Georgia Life Alliance, of which I am a part and will be | Read More »
