New Congress Wastes No Time Introducing Pro-life Legislation
In terms of legislation, this just may be the most pro-life Congress Washington has ever seen. Returning pro-life senators like (R-KY) and Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) have spearheaded former pro-life legislative efforts, as well as representatives like Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ). What’s more, an historic 21 pro-life women are now serving in Congress – and they’ve already shown that is more than just a number. | Read More »
Administration ignored warnings about ISIS
We have repeatedly chronicled how the policies of the the Obama administration are directly responsible for the rise of ISIS and because of that bears partial responsibility for the slaughter that has raged in Syria and Iraq over the past two years. In short, the misbegotten embrace of “Arab Spring” destabilized Syria while creating an al Qaeda safe haven in the power vacuum we created | Read More »
Putin’s Fascism Vs Barack Obama’s
One of the things that really chaps my butt about the Alternative Right is their tendency to talk about how wonderful it would be if we could have a good, authoritarian in charge over here like Vladimir Putin. If Putin ever decided to take up an acting career slightly off of Sunset Blvd; over in The San Fernando Valley, he’d certainly be accompanied by his | Read More »

RMJ’s 2015 Economic Wish: Crash, Burn and Keep Me Warm This Winter
Bill Gross of Janus Capital looked into the abyss…. Gross writes: “When the year is done, there will be minus signs in front of returns for many asset classes. The good times are over.” He says this because oil is down to $49 per BBL. Treasury Yields are falling lower. And as of this moment the DJIA is also dropping like rock in a tossed | Read More »
[Breaking] Probable Islamist attack in Paris: 11 dead at satirical magazine.
Via @PhilWillSays comes this report of Islamist* terror in Paris: “Armed men stormed the Paris offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday morning, killing 11 people and injuring more, French President François Hollande said. The men opened fire inside the magazine’s offices using automatic AK-47 rifles before fleeing, a police officer said.” The ‘Islamist’ bit is not yet confirmed; but, given that this isn’t | Read More »
Time for a 2020 Vision, Not Platitudes
Whoever the next President is, he will seek a second term in the year 2020. For the Republicans, they should take advantage of 2020 and tell us with foresight, not with hindsight, what their vision for America is. And I want to extend an invitation to all of them from Jeb Bush, who has announced, to the rest who will announce, to share their vision | Read More »
Atlanta’s Mayor Fires the City’s Fire Chief For Being a Christian
In 2013, more than a year ago, Atlanta’s Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran wrote a book called “Who Told You That You Were Naked?” The book outlined his Christian faith. Chief Cochran is popular with Christians in Atlanta. Having previously left Atlanta to work for the Obama Administration, he came back as Fire Chief and wrote his book. His book was published more than a year | Read More »
Mitigating the Suck
I campaigned for Jody Hice and Barry Loudermilk in Georgia. They both said they were opposed to as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Today, the both voted for him, having previously voted against him in the Republican Conference. They both stood behind that as their justification to vote for him today, but their constituents thought otherwise. For an hour on the radio in Atlanta | Read More »
Planned Parenthood: Abortion by Any Other Name, Still Raking in Huge Profits at the Taxpayer’s Expense
Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report is a sobering reminder that it remains the unquestioned leader of the Culture of Death.
As it has seen across the board increases in abortions, taxpayer dollars, and profits during President Obama’s time in office, Planned Parenthood continues to play the American people for fools.

It’s official: the Obama administration hates it when you have cheap Keystone oil.
It only took three relentless Congressional electoral cycles to get Barack Obama to admit it, too. Not that the administration wants to admit it, even now. They just ran out of options: The White House on Tuesday for the first time issued a veto threat over Republican-backed legislation to approve the Keystone pipeline, setting up a likely showdown between President Obama and the GOP-controlled Congress in | Read More »
On the Election of John Boehner as Speaker of the House
Yes, it has always been pretty much a fait accompli that Boehner would be elected speaker. And yes, it looks like conservatives were unable to deny Boehner the victory on the first vote, although it was closer than I initially believed. That said, I think that both sides of this debate are wildly overreacting to what happened here. I think the anti-Boehner side is way | Read More »
Whoa. Hold On Folks.
Sure, I wanted to lose. And yes, it is continually frustrating to know conservatives in their quiet place are ready to vote against him, but when they get to the floor they cave. But I am seeing some hysterically enraged tweets, direct messages, Facebook posts, emails, and text messages. Maybe it is because I’m sitting in a seminary class right now while everyone else is | Read More »
The missing Cuban dissidents– or Barack Obama drives one hard bargain
Color me agnostic on the Cuba embargo. I think we could have driven Clan Castro from power years ago if we had subsidized cheap airfares and flooded Havana with hipsters and libertarians. Be that as it may, that was not the deal negotiated by the nimrods in the White House. No matter what the deal was, if the US is to retain even a thread | Read More »
Glenn Grothman Is All Talk
The reason people are so deeply cynical about politics is because they rally around candidates who say bold things only to see those candidates immediately cave once secured in their position. Behold Glenn Grothman, a Congressman from Wisconsin. “I would have no problem looking for an alternative to Speaker Boehner,” Grothman said in a candidate debate Aug. 1. “I have no problem standing up to | Read More »
