Concert Review: Kelly Clarkson & Maroon 5 at Jones Beach, 8/11/13
Sunday night, my wife & I went to see a double-billed concert, Kelly Clarkson and Maroon 5 at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach (in a fit of corporate sponsorship, this is billed as the “Honda Civic Tour”).

Marco Rubio and the immigration surrender
Of all the arguments advanced in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens, perhaps the most outrageous came from Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) during a radio interview on Tuesday with Preston Scott on WFLA out of Tallahassee, Florida.

The Importance of Virginia
Yesterday, the AFL-CIO declared it was going all in in Virginia to get Terry McAuliffe elected. The AFL-CIO has massive amounts of money and, should McAuliffe win, as Jim Geraghty, I, and others have noted, the media and liberal Republicans will claim conservatives cannot get elected. Ken Cuccinelli, as the Attorney General of Virginia, was the first State AG to go to court opposing Obamacare. | Read More »

Victory: “No Atheists in Foxholes” Article Reinstated on Chaplain’s Website
Angry atheists bizarre arguments and incendiary tactics were once again exposed and soundly defeated as a military chaplain’s blog post has been reposted on a base website.
The inaptly named Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), an anti-Christian organization headed by Mikey Weinstein, makes it its mission to antagonize military chaplains for doing their duty. Weinstein has compared Christians serving in our military to al Qaeda and repeatedly refers to Christians in uniform as “monsters who terrorize.” A few weeks ago, MRFF demanded that an article detailing the historical context of the phrase “no atheists in foxholes” be removed from a military chaplain’s website.
