Letter from a Birmingham jail – 51 years later
Today, Dr. King would be writing from a jail cell because there are laws that suspend free speech near an abortion clinic. There are clergy who avoid the issue in order to preserve, or build, their own influence. But the main reason that Dr. King would take up the cause of stopping abortion is that the unborn are the ultimate oppressed citizens with no voice. Take the sentence “If today I lived in a Communist country where certain principles dear to the Christian faith are suppressed, I would openly advocate disobeying that country’s anti religious laws” and remove the word “Communist”. That’s today’s America.

Obama’s War on Women
After watching Lila Rose ably defend every woman’s right to life on Crossfire, I have been toying with an argument that bypasses the viability and preference minutia. This is probably written more technically than I would like, but it communicates what I believe to be a strong case for the inherent contradictions in the pro-abortion argument. I pray that we recognize that there are 2 | Read More »

Today’s biggest threat to blacks
“Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born.” Forty-one years ago today, the world’s most destructive inhumanity was born. The number one killer of African-Americans today is not HIV, not diabetes, not homicides– the number one killer of African-Americans today is abortion. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, was founded by a woman hailed by many as a “hero” yet openly | Read More »
Saving Lives One Baby at a Time – The Case for Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers
Each year pro-life pregnancy centers save thousands of lives. Women in their most desperate time of need, searching for answers and just a simple helping hand, have been ministered to. Countless future doctors, nurses, engineers, inventors, and moms and dads of the next generation have been saved because their moms made the choice to let them live. Those unborn children were given a chance because someone gave their mom a chance, a chance for hope, a chance for success.
Yet, to pro-abortion radicals, these pro-life centers are the competition, and they want the competition shut down.

Today Virginia votes. Republicans, and in particular conservatives, come to this election after a difficult year to endure. The Governor depressed us, the Lieutenant Governor depressed us, the transportation deal depressed us, and of course DC establishment Republicans like Eric Cantor depressed us.
But today we face a clear, easy choice: Ken Cuccinelli or Terry McAuliffe. Easy call. We must make sure to vote today for Ken Cuccinelli for Governor, E. W. Jackson for Lieutenant Governor, and Mark Obenshain for Attorney General. It’s important. Please vote.

It would have you know that it would rather not comply with regulations to ensure the safety of its patients than spend money upgrading facilities. Never mind all the money Planned Parenthood has.Turns out that some of that money is due to over billing Medicaid. According to Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, Planned Parenthood has just | Read More »
The Permit Power, The IRS and The Troll Under The Bridge
Since August or September of 480BC, Western Culture has been well aware of the power multiplier that comes with establishing and holding a choke point. When King Leonidas of Sparta held a vast army of Persians at bay for several days with a smaller force at Thermopylae; the world then knew that chokepoints were strategic fulcrums from whence power could be leveraged far beyond its initial limits. The economic analog to such a chokepoint is the monopoly. The government permit power is just such a chokepoint generating function to empower the state beyond its circumscribed constitutional limits.
When the government controls activity via permit, they are able to do several things that go far beyond their enumerated Constitutional powers. They can pick winners and losers. They can dictate the size and scope of activities without having to depend on the approval of courts or legislators. An agency wielding permit power can skim a surplus off the top through fees that go beyond the cost of providing inspection and certification related to the permit. Like a gang of brigands controlling a bridge, a regulating agency can use the permit power to dictate who gets to pass, how much traffic traverses the road and how much in bribes have to be paid in order to get across the river

Can Obama pardon Kermit Gosnell?
The power to pardon by the President is granted by the United States Constitution, Article II, Section 2: The President … shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment. Since the murder convictions of “Doctor” Kermit Gosnell involved state and not federal crimes, Obama is unable to pardon him, but there’s plenty of evidence | Read More »

The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. I got our first e-mail listener feedback from what I talked about last episode, regarding whether or not legalizing same-sex marriage necessarily leads to polygamy.
