    Race War to Victory

    The Democrats do not have an agenda to run on in 2014. And contrary to the prognostications of the left, no doubt consoling themselves, Obamacare is not going to sink the GOP. In fact, the Republican Party, like the Democrats in 2006 and the GOP in 2010, can run as the party of “NO”. Most Americans are tired of Barack Obama, they are tired of | Read More »

    Resurrection Sunday: Easter 2014

    Resurrection Sunday: Easter 2014

    But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they | Read More »

    Lunatic Lord

    Lunatic Lord

    We accept that Socrates existed, though Socrates did not leave writings behind. A few people so intent on believing Jesus is imaginary have decided Socrates was too. These are largely weak minded fools. Socrates may have no writings on his own, but Plato, Xenophon and Aristophanes — all of whom we know existed — wrote about Socrates. We derive knowledge of Socrates from those who | Read More »

    Ecce Homo: Good Friday 2014

    Ecce Homo: Good Friday 2014

    And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.  And sitting down they watched him there;  And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. Now from the sixth hour there | Read More »

    Jimmy Carter Invites the Money Changers Back to the Temple

    And Jimmy entered the temple and invited in all who sold and bought in the temple, and he set up the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of politics,’ but you make it a den of rich contributors.” Going back to the nineties there have | Read More »

    Christians Side With Mammon. Mammon Sided with Barabbas.

    Christians Side With Mammon. Mammon Sided with Barabbas.

    No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24 “One thousand nine hundred eighty-one years ago today, the world chose to spare a criminal and crucify God himself.” 1,981 years ago today, the world put God on | Read More »

    Pray for the President

    Pray for the President

    St. Peter wrote, “Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.” (1 Peter 2:17) That Emperor would go on to execute Peter, Paul, and other Christians. St. Paul wrote, “I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified | Read More »

    “Abortion Barbie” is Losing and May Be Corrupt

    "Abortion Barbie" is Losing and May Be Corrupt

    If the only thing I accomplish during campaign 2014 is being credited with labeling Wendy Davis as “Abortion Barbie,” I will be happy. Defining her early as a single issue candidate outside the mainstream and doing so based on her own words, pink shoes, and hagiographic press clippings is paying dividends in Texas. She is losing women voters to Greg Abbott. She is failing to | Read More »

    Milton Wolf Starts His Ad Buy

    In Kansas, Milton Wolf is beginning to do what I suggested this morning he do — reach out to Kansas voters to show he is a credible alternative to Pat Roberts. Here is the first in his series of ad buys:

    The Challengers Under Attack

    The truth may hurt, but is not mean, as my friend Andrew Breitbart would say. The truth is the major challengers to incumbent Republican Senators — Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas, and Chris McDaniel in Mississippi — are behind. This is not to say they cannot win. I believe they can. But, this is to say that for them to win, their | Read More »

    The Rich Man and Lazarus’s Big Gulp

    The Rich Man and Lazarus's Big Gulp

    It is always sad when you realize someone is on the road to hell. There is a sense of foreboding in it. For Christians, we should be fearfully in prayer for others — even our enemies as the Lord tells us. There is no better time than Holy Week to be reminded of that. A great case in point is Mayor Mike Bloomberg. He is | Read More »

    If Obamacare Were Working, They Would Not Do This

    One must admire the Obama Administration’s willingness to use every tool at its disposal to win an argument. They are now changing the way the census records healthcare data to wipe out any qualms about Obamacare. The Federalist has a good background on what is happening, but it is not just the Federalist that is paying attention. Even the liberal New York Times realizes what | Read More »

    The Common Core Problem

    The Common Core Problem

    I don’t think Common Core supporters understand what they’ve done. The supporters of common core seem to think that people should be thanking them for the great benefit that is being bestowed upon their children. At its heart, it makes sense that in a highly mobile society, students should be essentially on the same path of study so there is no disadvantage in a parent | Read More »
