    The House GOP Should Man Up Instead of Resorting to Political Theater in the Courts

    John Boehner and the House Republicans may lack the testicular fortitude to fight President Obama, but I would kindly ask that he save the taxpayers further money on a political stunt “John Boehner and the House Republicans may lack the testicular fortitude to fight President Obama, but I would kindly ask that he save the taxpayers further money on a political stunt ” John Boehner | Read More »

    Thank You David and Barbara Green and Anthony Hahn

    Christianity is a religion of the public square. Followers of Christ are called to glorify Him in all aspects of their life, including their vocation. In fact, Christians are to view their jobs as a ministry. David and Barbara Green have done exactly that. They created a business called Hobby Lobby and they poured their hearts, their sweat, and their faith into it. They treat | Read More »

    Help Chris McDaniel Investigate Election Fraud

    I hope you might consider donating to Chris McDaniel to help his campaign investigate the possibility that the election was stolen.

    Abuses Too Far

    Abuses Too Far

    Yesterday, Barack Obama lost his twelfth unanimous decision before the United States Supreme Court. His own Justices on the Court ruled against him.

    Will There Be a Consequence?

    Will There Be a Consequence?

    It was the Republicans in Washington and their allies in Mississippi who distributed fliers to Democrats in Mississippi calling conservatives racists, klansmen, Nazis, etc. It was a concerted effort by the GOP to beat their own base at any cost.
