    An Age of Seriousness Returns

      Until Friday, we lived in an age where the United States government could, with a straight face, assert that the most serious national security issue of our time is global warming. Until Friday, we lived in an age where men could be thought of as boys, living in their parents’ basement, on their parents’ insurance, tweeting angrily in support of two dudes and an | Read More »

    Only Democrats Can Be Prophets

    Back in 2008, the foreign policy press corp of America ridiculed Sarah Palin for predicting that Barack Obama’s displays of weakness and softness would set the stage for a Russian invasion of Ukraine. Blake Hounshell, then the left leaning editor of Foreign Policy and now Deputy Editor of Politico’s magazine, labeled the claim “strange.” After Hounshell’s 2008 article started circulating on twitter the other day, | Read More »

    The 2014 Democrat Slogan: “F. U. America”

    On Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden told Democrats, “We should not apologize for a single thing.” Also on Thursday, Senator Harry Reid said all the horror stories related to Obamacare are lies. He dismissed them as “Koch Brother” smears. The woman with caner is a liar. The man whose mother can’t get her cancer medication covered is a liar too. The guy with multiple sclerosis? | Read More »

    An Upside Down World

    In December of 1865, the several American states ratified the thirteenth amendment constitutionally ending involuntary servitude in the United States. In the twenty-first century, Americans are coming full circle. In a number of states, a black man can again be forced by the government to work involuntarily for a white man. Not since the nation eliminated Jim Crow laws during the civil rights era have | Read More »

    Democrat Alex Sink Wants Immigrants To Clean Rooms and Plant Flowers

    Here again is another example of media bias. Very few have bothered to report on Alex Sink, the Democrats’ nominee for Congress in Florida, saying what she said. In explaining the need for immigration reform, Alex Sink — a seasoned political veteran mind you — actually said we need more immigrants to clean hotel rooms and landscape yards. If a Republican said this, the press corps | Read More »

    Debt Man

    This video from the Madison Project speaks for itself.

    Governor Jan Brewer Should Sign the Religious Liberty Legislation

    It is sad that we, in the 21st century, are at this point in the United States of America. We should be willing to leave each other alone and have basic respect for one another. We should not wish to impose our views on others or force others to serve us against their will. Unfortunately, in the name of tolerance, a group of activists nationwide | Read More »

    Support Dr. Milton Wolf

    Pat Roberts is Kansas’s Senator. He does not live in Kansas. His home is in Virginia. He drives a car with a Virginia license plate. His wife is a Virginia realtor. His house in Kansas is rented out to someone. He says when he goes to Kansas, which is less and less frequent, that he sleeps in a friend’s recliner. Pat Roberts has a challenger | Read More »

    Draft Bob Beauprez for Colorado Governor

    Draft Bob Beauprez for Colorado Governor

    There are seven people running for the Republican nomination for Governor of Colorado. None of the seven have shown an ability to unite the Colorado GOP. None have shown the ability to win the tough race. None have shown the ability to raise the significant money they will need for a very tough race. None even seem to have a very strong, statewide grassroots network | Read More »

    Two Must Reads

    Really, I need not say anything else. I know that is unusual, but just go read these two pieces. The first is by Andy McCarthy. The second is by Russell Moore. Read them and retweet them and put them on Facebook. It will save me the trouble of having to repackage and repeat arguments made better that I could.

    A Christianity Only American Liberals Would Recognize

    A friend sent along the following responding to this piece in the Daily Beast about religious liberty. My personal impression is that the piece is deeply shallow, but uses enough fifty cent words to cover that up. Beyond that though, you should go read the piece, then come back and enjoy this from my friend: I’ll try to pick out discrete lines here to respond | Read More »

    Yes, Jesus Would Bake A Cake for a Gay Person

    Yes, Jesus Would Bake A Cake for a Gay Person

    Jesus Christ would absolutely bake a cake for a gay person. He’d bake a cake for a straight person. He’d bake a cake for a girl, a boy, a person who isn’t sure what they are, a black person, a white person — Jesus would bake that cake if it, in  some way large or small, drew that person closer to Him. And Christians should | Read More »

    Standing With Matt Bevin

    Standing With Matt Bevin

    Matt Bevin ran a company, something Mitch McConnell has not done. While running that company, Matt Bevin put his signature on a prospectus for his company in which the company touted the economic benefits that would be derived from TARP. Pretty much every financially oriented business in America did the same at the time. That’s what Mitch McConnell, George Bush, Hank Paulson, and virtually everyone | Read More »

    Useful Idiots for Baal

    Useful Idiots for Baal

    I stumbled upon a Christian author I was not familiar with the other day and saw that he had written from a host of secular publications about faith. From CNN to National Journal to the Huffington Post to USA Today to the Atlantic to others — these are publications that tend to be hostile to people of traditional, orthodox Christian faith. When a Christian author | Read More »

    Why This Fight

    Why This Fight

    I was once an elected Republican. I started the College Republicans at my school. I served as the state chair of the College Republicans in Georgia. I have worked for more than two decades to get Republicans elected. But more and more I cannot tell you what it means to be a Republican other than opposition to Barack Obama. I want to be for something, | Read More »
