    Time Magazine’s Bryan R. Walsh (@bryanrwalsh) Must Be Hoarding Water and Tuna

    When ran for President in 2012, she said if she were President she would get gas below $2.00 a gallon. That led to much ridicule from the left/press who claimed that was impossible. One of the leading voices giving credibility to the rejection of Bachmann’s claim was Time Magazine’s Bryan R. Walsh. Walsh wrote of Bachmann’s claims, “If you see sub-$2-a-gallon gas again, I strongly | Read More »

    Into the New

    There are 365 days in a year, unless the President is campaigning for office, then we have one additional, insufferable day. Each day has twenty-four hours. Each hour has sixty minutes. Each minute has sixty seconds. For all the near precision of the world wobbling, spinning, and orbiting the sun, time does not seem precise, but seems to slow sometimes almost to a crawl and | Read More »

    This Was the Standard

    New House GOP Spin: Scalise Hanging With Racists Helps Him Work With Conservatives

    The House GOP will stand by , signaling they will hold their leadership to lesser standards than they would conservatives. Now they are just rubbing everybody’s nose in it. Their latest spin, courtesy of the Washington Post, is that Scalise’s ability to connect with racists makes him a bridge builder between conservatives and Speaker Boehner. I kid you not. From the article: Racist elements have | Read More »

    I’ll Be Filling in for Rush Limbaugh Today

Nonetheless, you can tune in live from 12:00pm ET to 3pm. You can also listen live at RushLimbaugh.com or just go over to my home station, WSB.

    Steve Scalise, David Duke, and Electability Over Principle

    I do not think Steve Scalise is a racist. I may disagree with him on a lot of policy, but I do not think he is a bad or indecent person. In fact, he is a very nice person and there is bipartisan agreement on that front. My problem with Steve Scalise is judgment. He, like much of the Republican leadership, is so focused on | Read More »

    If You Criticize Obama, Kurt Eichenwald Thinks You Are A Sinner

    Kurt Eichenwald is the non-religious scholar who wrote a screed against Christianity in Newsweek that contained basic factual errors. Not only did it contain basic factual errors, it also took criticisms of non-Christians as fact without any rebuttal by believers. It would be as if Eichenwald decided believers in global warming cannot be trusted to be know the facts and only skeptics can be believed. | Read More »

    How Do You Show Up at a David Duke Event and Not Know What It Is?

    Hey Pastor, Can I Have a Minute of Your Time?

    Newsweek is back and this time it is fully a leftist rag. It’s latest is Christian troll bait written by non-religious scholar Kurt Eichenwald of Vanity Fair who, if you’ve ever paid attention to him, holds Christianity in disdain to begin with. So of course a guy who hates Christianity is going to attack it. His attacks, for knowledgeable Christians, are silly fabrications and half-truths. | Read More »

    The Most Powerful Conservative in America

    I am very flattered by the suggestion, but I am sure there are others more deserving of the title “Most Powerful Conservative in America.” Nonetheless, it is what the Atlantic has dubbed me. For almost the last year, Molly Ball of the Atlantic has been doing the hard work of putting up with me and exploring my background. She followed me around CPAC and the | Read More »

    Christmas From Eve to Mary

    As we wind down for the holidays and I gear up to fill in for Rush Limbaugh (12/26, 12/30, and 1/2), I will be doing a special presentation on WSB Radio for Christmas Eve. Putting my seminary learning to good use, I spend an hour tying Eve to Mary, explaining the significant of the smoking pot to Abraham, and breaking down why in 200 AD | Read More »

    To Understand the Beginning of the End, You Must Understand the End of the Beginning

    To Understand the Beginning of the End, You Must Understand the End of the Beginning

    In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth. And it was perfect until temptation and sin crept in. In the last 24 hours, left-wing articles have attacked Christianity, accused God of raping Mary, and denied there is a deity at all. They have no understanding of either the theology or history of Christmas. For sane people, to understand what this is all about, | Read More »

    A Fund Has Been Set Up to Help Officer Ramos’s Family

    UPDATE: Bowdoin College reached out and asked if I would note the following regarding this: Just to be clear, while these funds can be used by the Ramos family at their discretion, they will NOT be needed to pay college expenses for Justin Ramos.
