    April 7, 1865. Prelude to Appomattox

    On April 6, 1865, the Army of Northern Virginia lost 8,700 men, about one-fifth of its strength, at the Battle of Sayler’s Creek. As a result, Lee lost his rearguard and any hope he had of eluding Grant and linking up with Joe Johnston in North Carolina vanished. Lee, observing the action, was heard to say “My God! Has the army been dissolved?” Moreover, the | Read More »

    Mike Pence and Asa Hutchinson are out of step with America.

    As Indiana Governor Mike Pence and Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson flail about trying to accommodate the insatiable demands of the homosexual left, Dave Weigel, reporting at Bloomberg Politics, has some bad new for them. They are out of step with most of  America. In doing so, all of the critics are on the wrong side of public polling. According to a March edition of the | Read More »

    .@SallyKohn is a dishonest lackwit

    The key issue over the Indiana RFRA and the similar bill in Arkansas (as well as the bills currently in effect in about 30 other states) is pretty simple. Can someone use the force of law to compel you to either violate your religious beliefs or be punished. For all observant Christians, homosexual acts — not the sexual attraction per se — are sinful. Homosexuality | Read More »

    Obama convinces scientists to support Iran nuclear surrender

    Obama convinces scientists to support Iran nuclear surrender

    As part of its breathless cheerleading for the Iran nuclear deal, POLITICO ran a story titled White House looks to scientists to sell Iran deal. The White House is calling in the geek squad to sell its Iran deal. The president’s top nerd, MIT-nuclear-physicist-turned-Energy-Secretary Ernest Moniz, who has been chosen to lead the effort brought his expertise to the White House briefing room Monday, explaining | Read More »

    Iran: US agreed to immediate lift of sanctions

    Iran: US agreed to immediate lift of sanctions

    Earlier this week, Barack Obama committed the United States to a disastrous course of action that ensures the terrorist state of Iran will be allowed, with Western assistance, to build a nuclear weapon. I outlined how Obama lied to the nation about the deal and how the Iranians, themselves, accused Obama of lying about the deal. A translation of the Iranian version of the agreement | Read More »

    Holy Saturday and the Harrowing of Hell

    Holy Saturday and the Harrowing of Hell

    From the Apostle’s Creed: born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; While most Christians are familiar with the events of what happens during the Easter or Paschal Triduum, those three days between the end of Lent and Easter Sunday. Holy or Maundy Thursday | Read More »

    .@CBS employee files false fraud report

    Not content to hound a small business into bankruptcy, militant homosexuals are now engaged in filing fraudulent fraud reports. Most of you know that Memories Pizza, of Walkerton, IN, has been run out of business by vengeful and somewhat deranged homosexual rights advocates because they would not cater pizza to a homosexual wedding reception. Mind you, no one has ever heard of such a reception | Read More »

    Iran accuses Obama of lying about the nuclear weapons deal

    Iran accuses Obama of lying about the nuclear weapons deal

    It is a sure sign you’ve failed when your political opponents and the people you are negotiating with accuse you of lying. Yesterday, Obama lied to the American people in the boldest possible terms on what the nuclear negotiations deal meant. In simple terms, Iran gave up the ability to have a nuclear energy program and in return got permission from Obama to build a | Read More »

    Indiana turns religious freedom law into a law punishing religious freedom

    Indiana turns religious freedom law into a law punishing religious freedom

    This is Orwellian. When confronted by the rage of homosexual activists and their supporters… most of whom do not live in Indiana and none of whom would ever vote Republican… Mike Pence and the two imbeciles leading the Indiana legislature, Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne), and House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis) [pictured above] did what all moderates do when criticized by people who | Read More »

    Obama lies about Iranian fatwa against nuclear weapons

    Obama lies about Iranian fatwa against nuclear weapons

    Yesterday, Barack Obama told one of the most egregious series of lies any American president has ever uttered to the American people. It would be fair to say it was unprecedented. The closest approximation would be a tie between Richard Nixon’s “I am not a crook” and Bill Clinton’s “I did not have sex with that woman.” In neither of those cases, however, was the | Read More »

    The Sexual Revolution and the death of love

    The Sexual Revolution and the death of love

    The attack by homosexual activists and their supporters on the ability of religious people (primarily Christian because they are afraid members of some other religions might blow them up if pressed) to practice their faith as anything but a cultural artifact on Sundays and a few holidays has reached full-throated roar over laws passed in Indiana and Arkansas. Tim Carney made this observation in the | Read More »

    The demise of American Christianity

    The demise of American Christianity

    Today is Holy Thursday. If you are Catholic this is the first day of the Easter or Paschal Tiduum. In Christian theology, tonight is the memorial of the Last Supper. Catholic Churches and some Protestant denominations will do the symbolic “washing of feet,” which is how Christ reminds us that when you are a leader you are a servant not a master (this lesson is | Read More »

    Babies for sale

    The road to hell, as they say is paved with good intentions. And no small number of those good intentions occur when science and technology are able to inject themselves into the human life cycle. Abortion and euthanasia already exist. Euthanasia is being pushed not only to reduce medical costs but to provide a supply of organs for transplants. 1978 marked a watershed, of sorts, | Read More »

    @AsaHutchinson assumes fetal position

    I posted earlier today about the Arkansas legislature voting overwhelmingly for a state version of the RFRA, a law that would permit people of faith to live their faith publicly. Governor Asa Hutchinson (@AsaHutchinson) has said he won’t sign the current bill. Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Wednesday he would not sign the Religious Freedom Restoration Act passed by the Republican legislature Tuesday as it’s | Read More »

    Border Patrol ignores illegals and begins harassing citizens

    I’ll used this opening graf from the Houston Chronicle because it says it all: No drugs or would-be immigrants were hidden in the sedan that rolled up to a Border Patrol checkpoint on a Southern California highway last week, but within 90 seconds the driver was handcuffed. His 4-year-old boy was crying. And a video camera mounted on the car’s dashboard captured the moment. The | Read More »
