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
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% 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 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 »

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
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
As we’ve pointed out over and over, the Obama administration, and to a great extent the toolish Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 46%, 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
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 »
Carafem: the perfect intersection of left-feminism and bro culture.
It takes a certain amount of “Oh my God what is that?” to get me to make a response. This Carafem ad qualifies.

Objectivity by any other name…
Thanks to some fantastic work by the Washington Free Beacon, ABC chief news dude George Stephanopoulos has now admitted (albeit to POLITICO) that he has donated more than $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation. ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos has donated between $50,001 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation, the charitable organization run by his former boss, records show. At least a portion of that money was | Read More »
Hawaii’s Obamacare Exchange is Going Under
At some point, we have to ask ourselves, “Is there an Obamacare exchange that isn’t an utter failure?” The latest news regarding the Hawaii Health Connector, Hawaii’s Obamacare exchange, might be the worst faced by any state-run exchange in the country. It’s more than just glitches in the system or being millions upon millions in debt. No, the Hawaii Health Connector is in danger of | Read More »
Failure Theater: Elizabeth Warren edition
Failure Theater is a term we use here to describe the operating principle of the GOP. You make a big show of fighting for something your base really wants while at the same time sabotaging your own efforts. Finally, you just throw up your hands and say “we tried.” What follows after than will be either “the votes just weren’t there” or, “hey, look, over | Read More »
