    The Heretics Are Upset

    You may have never heard of Andrew Wilson, but you should. He is a theologian in the United Kingdom and has done a marvelous job repackaging so much of the heresy of the modern age in this very brilliant post. In fact, a bunch of “Christians” who’ve declared 2000 years of church orthodoxy wrong and themselves right are screaming like stuck pigs. It is a | Read More »

    Sarah Kliff at Vox.com Walks Back Her Prior Statement on Jonathan Gruber

    Sarah Kliff at Vox.com Walks Back Her Prior Statement on Jonathan Gruber

    Vox.com has, by now, been well established as a propaganda outlet, instead of a news outlet, but we have one more data point for the file. Sarah Kliff tried to explain the Jonathan Gruber situation and did so by downplaying his role in formulating Obamacare. What role did he play in developing the Affordable Care Act? Mostly number-crunching. In 2009 Health and Human Services awarded | Read More »

    Dinner With the President

    I had dinner with President Bush the other night, got to hear from Ben Carson, and have some thoughts on what Carson said. It’s all on last night’s show.

    Here Comes President Obama’s Amnesty Plan

    Here Comes President Obama's Amnesty Plan

    The President’s amnesty plan is coming. He intends to allow a lot of people who crossed the border illegally to stay in the country indefinitely. He is, in effect creating second class citizenship where people can exist in the space between daylight and the shadows with dubious status. The Republican response should be to make Camp David a refugee holding facility and close down every | Read More »

    Barack Obama Lies About His Carbon Plan

    Barack Obama Lies About His Carbon Plan

    Barack Obama’s team put this on his twitter account: This is huge: The United States and China have just agreed on an ambitious new joint plan to cut carbon pollution. http://t.co/Ntu6NFpSFY — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) November 12, 2014 That is not true. There was a joint agreement for both sides to do something. It was only to cut American carbon pollution. China is making no | Read More »

    Placating the Envirogelicals With the Fierce Urgency of Eleven Years From Now

    As many of the United States are seeing record early snow fall, the President has gone to China to cut a deal with the Chicoms on global warming. The left wants us to know it is a major, pressing issue. In fact, if we don’t do something immediately, Miami is going to be under water, there is no stopping it, and we sure as heck | Read More »

    We Remember the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month

    We Remember the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month

    On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of this year in the twenty-first century, we pause to honor our veterans on this Veterans Day and remember that first of the great world wars, which ended the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. To those who served, we thank you. In Flanders fields the poppies | Read More »

    The Treasuries of God and the Treasuries of Man

    We are a week removed from the “drubbing,” as the media chose to call what happened. The elation of conservatives is well deserved. I’ve noticed a sense of optimism coming from a lot of my politically connected evangelical friends who seem to think we have gotten a reprieve. I encourage the sense of optimism, but also must caution two things. First, conservatives have descended into | Read More »

    Don’t Let Victory Cover Over Weakness

    The Democrats, in defeat, have one advantage the defeated always have — they get a more clear eyed assessment of defeat than winners get through the glassy eyes of celebration. We on the right are all still giddy from defeating Barack Obama and the Democrats last Tuesday. And yes, Democrats, it was a defeat for the President. But in the giddiness, we should not fail | Read More »

    Very Important

    This is short, sweet, and to the point. Go to this tweet and retweet it. I’m a “wingman” for Folds of Honor. This is legit and hopefully will help raise them money for a worthy cause. Go retweet this now.

    The Second Stage

    The Second Stage

    From denial, wherein Democrats swept out of office have decided to keep the same party leaders in the same position, we are moving on to anger. We have liberal writers positing Pelican Brief scenarios of dead Supreme Court Justices causing 4-4 preservations of Obamacare to others claiming the GOP wants to kill people. Along the way, all the liberal tributes to the fall of the | Read More »

    Congratulations GOVERNOR Rick Scott on Defeating Charlie Crist

    Congratulations GOVERNOR Rick Scott on Defeating Charlie Crist

    It’s been just short of week since Rick Scott destroyed the political career of Charlie Crist and I still get a smile thinking about it. Four years ago, I was one of very, very few conservatives who dared even be nice to Rick Scott. His primary opponent had been a congressman and an impeachment manager in the Clinton impeachment. Virtually all of the major conservative | Read More »

    The Democrats’ Obama Problem

    The Democrats' Obama Problem

    Democrats began telling themselves demography is destiny back in 1968 after Richard Nixon’s election. They have been saying it ever since. That day may eventually arrive, but today is not that day. They may also believe they are a permanent party, but history is filled with Ozymandias like permanence. Last Tuesday’s voter turnout should not give the Democrats the comfort they have taken from it. | Read More »

    Battleground Texas Got Curb-Stomped

    This is just wonderful to read. You really need to read the Texas Tribune article. You almost get the sense it was written in the fetal position. Allow me to be direct. After every campaign cycle, the media makes heroes of individuals who did things in campaigns. Campaigns are most often won on fundamentals, but we live in a day and age of the Cult | Read More »
