Before You Vote This Week…
An appeal to my reasonable conservative friends: If you are not reasonable and open-minded, don’t read any further. I’m not looking for “zots.” I’m looking for reasonable people who are serious about making the right choice. When I know I’ve chosen wisely, I feel at peace, without doubt in my mind, and start to get excited – like Chrissy Mathews, I get “that tingle.” How | Read More »
Sebelius attacks! …the good guys, of course.
Shocking things have become such a daily occurrence under the Obama regime that I gave up blogging a few months ago. There was no way to cover all the outrages — or even to pick what to cover from the overwhelming barrage. This morning, however, something came along that hits so close to home, I am inspired to write. The horror of ObamaCare has now | Read More »
Thad McCotter Shakes Up the Presidential Race
If you don’t know who Thad McCotter is, don’t worry; you will soon. The next GOP candidate debate is scheduled for August 11, and it’s safe to say that McCotter’s presence in the lineup will get a lot of folks’ attention. Let’s put it this way: he’s not only the tallest guy in the room, but the brainiest. Also, the wittiest — as anyone who’s | Read More »
Henry Kissinger thinks he knows YOUR future
Here is a chillingly prophetic piece dating from January 7, 2009. Think back, for a minute, to those days after Obama had been elected but before he’d been inaugurated… those days of “The Office of the President-Elect” and the cheap-imitation presidential seal… And then, only 25 days after this piece was written, Obama was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize — after being in office | Read More »
Bin Laden’s dead — but Hezbollah’s stronger than ever. And they’re HERE.
Oh, if only the death of Osama bin Laden’s death could solve all our problems. No doubt we’ve dealt a serious blow to al-Qaeda. Unfortunately, Hezbollah, which has terrorist cells all over the Western Hemisphere — including within U.S. borders — is an even greater long-term danger to us than al-Qaeda is. In case anyone needs a refresher, Hezbollah is the Iranian-sponsored terrorist organization that | Read More »
Can There Be An “Islamic Reformation”?
What exactly is the nature of Islam? Specifically: Is Islam itself evil — or only certain interpretations of it? Can Islam be reformed — or is that impossible by its very nature? Should we encourage “moderate” Muslims — or is that just wasted effort? Ever since 9/11, Americans have been asking themselves these questions. Christians often ask an additional question: Is it worthwhile, or even | Read More »
It’s 1938 — all over again
Nothing should shock me anymore about the depth of humanity’s oldest hatred — nevertheless I am in shock. The next Holocaust is being prepared — as the world looks on. And does nothing. On Wednesday, in Cairo, Fatah — the terrorist group founded by Yasser Arafat that now styles itself as “moderate” and runs the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — signed a reconciliation | Read More »
Obama: “The Disconnected One”
Many psychologists and pundits have commented, over the years, on Barack Obama’s aloofness, stiffness, weird sense of humor and apparent emotional disconnect from those he is supposed to be serving. In the last few days, this topic has again come to the fore, as many Americans have noted the rather strange discrepancy between Obama’s knowing, as of Friday, about the planned attack on Osama bin | Read More »
Why I’m not an “environmentalist” any more
Don’t get me wrong. I recycle every kind of paper, metal, glass and plastic; I take my own reusable canvas tote bags with me to the grocery store; I purchase from local and/or organic farmers as much as possible. I believe in good stewardship of the earth God has given us. What’s changed is my attitude toward “environmentalist” advocacy groups. I joined the Sierra Club | Read More »
It’s fun. It’s easy. It’s cheap. Join the Sticky Note Campaign!
Here’s something we all can do — and all you need is some post-it notes! … … … … A Facebook page has been set up for this campaign. The people behind it are encouraging people to send in photos of their own like the ones above. To borrow a line from an old leftie, “…and, friends, they’ll think it’s a movement!” By the way, | Read More »
Beware of Donald Trump: He’s no conservative!
I am very distressed by Allen West’s giving even the slightest bit of consideration to Donald Trump as a serious candidate, much less a serious Republican candidate. West recently said that he’d consider being Donald Trump’s running mate if it were offered, and Trump and West shared the stage at a South Florida Tax Day Tea Party rally. This is both puzzling and disturbing. The | Read More »
Obama slaps Israel in the face — on Passover!
Barack Obama seems to think that attending a Passover seder once a year will fool Jews into thinking he likes them. Forget that he gave massive financial support — not to mention weekly attendance — to a church whose pastor, Jeremiah Wright, delivers anti-Semitic jabs on a regular basis. Forget that his first phone call from the Oval Office after his inauguration was to Mahmoud | Read More »
Obama wants to control your access to credit
The Dodd-Frank financial reform bill passed last year contains something every bit as dictatorial — and dangerous — as Obama’s unconstitutional “czars.” I found out about it in an email I received from Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) [boldface and first hyperlink added by me]: This week I introduced commonsense legislation to reform the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Better consumer protection is a shared goal | Read More »
Looming government shutdown reveals Obama’s top priorities: Killing babies and killing businesses
Good golly, Miss Molly, some days I wake up and I still can’t believe my fellow Americans elected this creep to the White House: President Obama said Tuesday he would not sign a budget agreement to keep the government running that cuts funding for Planned Parenthood and the Environmental Protection Agency. “There can be some negotiation about composition,” Obama told reporters…. “What we can’t be | Read More »
Today is “Terri’s Day” — commemorating Terri Schiavo
Today is the sixth anniversary of Terri Schiavo’s murder. I can already hear people objecting to that choice of words – so let’s just get that issue out of the way right off the bat. Murder is the deliberate killing of a human being. Terri was a human being, and her killing was deliberate. The dirty secret of the murder of Terri Schiavo is that | Read More »
Could the Middle East become “Christenrein”?
The ongoing unrest all across the Middle East is resulting in native Christian communities suffering ever greater persecution.

How to deal with those pesky pro-lifers? Shoot ‘em, bomb ‘em, run over ‘em!
A few years ago, a friend of my sister was peacefully praying outside an abortion facility in Dallas, TX. A man who’d brought his girlfriend there to abort his child got so furious at my sister’s friend just for being there that he deliberately veered his car over and ran her down. She was critically injured. Fortunately, she eventually recovered. Not everyone is so fortunate. | Read More »
UNBELIEVABLE: Virginia Military Institute celebrates the caliphate; national ROTC program partially in hands of jihad-connected foreigners
Did you ever think you would see the day when the Virginia Military Institute would be celebrating jihad and the caliphate? Or when ROTC training would be partially in the hands of a foreign, Arab government? Such is life in the Twilight Zone that is the Age of Obama. From Big Peace: Amid talk on Capitol Hill about defunding public broadcasting—and just after NPR was | Read More »
God save the (Congressman) King!
If you do one thing today to help save our country, please make it a phone call to your Congressperson to tell him/her to support Congressman Peter King’s hearings on homegrown Islamic terrorism in the U.S. and the radicalization of the U.S. Muslim community by jihadists and sharia promoters. (Congressional switchboard: 202-224-3121.) Or go to your congressman’s website, http://xxx.house.gov, where xxx is your representative’s last | Read More »
Churches into mosques, American style
At least two Protestant churches have recently opened their facilities to Muslim groups whose own buildings are either too small or under construction. From Fox News: Heartsong Church in Cordova, Tenn., let members of the Memphis Islamic Center hold Ramadan prayers there last September. And Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Alexandria, Va., allows the Islamic Circle of North America to hold regular Friday prayers in | Read More »
Bye, bye, Miss American Pie — and Lady Liberty, too?
America, behold thy future… unless we wake up! Pretty sick joke, huh? Alas, it’s no joke. As the good folks at Weasel Zippers inform us, a group called Shariah 4 America is dead serious about plans to drape our beloved emblem of liberty in a burqa, and eventually turn the statue into a minaret. Here’s their blueprint: The UK-based Shariah 4 America group (I’m linking | Read More »
“The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb”
Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had an abortion years ago, and regretted it. Now she’s a leader in the “Silent No More” movement. And although she is an evangelical Protestant, she is one of the top staffers at Fr. Frank Pavone’s Priests for Life organization. Clearly, Alveda King is a woman who thinks for herself, and frustrates those | Read More »
We’ve become totally dependent on China for the “rare earth elements” that make modern life possible
Never underestimate the capacity of the Left to shoot itself in the foot — and injure the rest of us in the process. The New American reports: Most of their pet “alternative energy” projects — solar panels, hybrid and electric car batteries, wind turbine magnets, compact fluorescent light bulbs, etc. — are dependent upon “rare earth elements” that have been made all but unobtainable here | Read More »
Yes We Can (confront these people)!
Seeing Allen West confront that CAIR guy with facts the other night reinforced for me how amazingly powerful the simple truth is. The Left is so rooted in a false ideology, and so accustomed to deceiving people in order to get their way, that they instinctively recoil from truth — including from plain, unadorned facts. It’s like a crucifix to a vampire. Like water on | Read More »
