    By Faith: I Am Proud of Franklin Graham

    All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. If they had been thinking of the country they had | Read More »

    Actually it looks like the Democrats will be the ones destroying social security

    A headline at CNN back on August 13th proclaimed “Democrats to use Social Security against GOP this fall”.There is just one problem.The Wall Street Journal is reporting that it is Barack Obama’s own debt commission that intends to destroy social security as we know it. In addition to raising the retirement age, which is now set to reach age 67 in 2027, specific cuts under | Read More »

    Obama Blames Democrats For Economic Stall

    Andrew Malcolm notes that prior to King Louis Mr. Obama heading off on his ninth vacation he blamed Congressional Democrats for the economic stall. The jobs bill that is stalled in Congress would completely eliminate taxes on key investments in small businesses. It would allow small business owners to write off more expenses. And it would make it easier for community banks to do more | Read More »

    Democrats Told To Stop Campaigning On Obamacare

    The Politico headline is actually New Dem message: ‘Improve’ health care, don’t talk cost , but that is not wholly what is going on. What is going on is a recognition from the Democrats that after a year of trying to sell Obamacare as a panacea of right thinking and improvement, the voters headed to the polls in November disagree and are angry.Consequently, the Politico | Read More »

    BREAKING: Obama Appoints Maria del Carmen Aponte as Ambassador to El Salvador

    This is huge news coming on the heels of Barack Obama’s support for the Ground Zero Mosque. He has appointed Maria del Carmen Aponte to be Ambassador to El Salvador. Three United States Senators have a hold on her nomination. Why? Because she had a longterm relationship with a top Cuban spy. She withdrew as a Clinton appointee back in the 90′s because of it. | Read More »

    The Associated Press Takes Sides Again

    Consistent with the operations of the 29% fringe political elites who have no problem with the Ground Zero mosque, the Associated Press has ordered a full stop on usage of “Ground Zero Mosque.” We should continue to avoid the phrase “ground zero mosque” or “mosque at ground zero” on all platforms. (We’ve very rarely used this wording, except in slugs, though we sometimes see other | Read More »

    Flaming Hypocrisy and the Convenient Constitutionalists of the Fringe Political Elite

    For weeks on end the political elite in this country and their sycophants have told us we must support the Ground Zero Mosque because our founding principles demand it. This fringe group, no larger than the birthers or 9/11 Truthers and smaller than the mainstream group called the “tea party movement” the fringe political elite has labeled fringe, are not afraid to tell you that | Read More »

    The Growing Detachment of the Political Class

    I hate to keep harping on this topic, but it is so very relevant to the present political discussion. The political class and its sycophants — and I want to be clear here that this is bipartisan and, to a degree, across ideological lines — has grown hopelessly out of touch with the rest of America. The political class that supports things like the Ground | Read More »
