    Respect Life Sunday

    Respect Life Sunday

    Today is Respect Life Sunday, the first Sunday of October, the month dedicated to increasing our respect for human life from conception to natural death. We continue to make baby steps, if you will, of progress. Women are fleeing abortion evangelist Wendy Davis in Texas. More Americans are becoming skeptical of abortion as anything but a way of killing inconvenient children. States are enacting laws | Read More »

    Pro-Aborts and Planned Parenthood dealt defeat in Texas

    Pro-Aborts and Planned Parenthood dealt defeat in Texas

    In July, 2013 Governor Rick Perry signed into law a bill, HB 2,  regulating abortion in Texas. What the bill did was bring the freewheeling abortion industry under the same type of regulation as other similar medical facilities. While useful in itself, it also exposed the utterly fraudulent nature of anyone who uses “women’s health” as an excuse to support abortion. Because abortion is big | Read More »

    Sin, Homosexuality, and Fascism

    Sin, Homosexuality, and Fascism

    Perhaps nothing is more indicative of the true agenda behind the homosexual right movement than whining article in The Atlantic titled “Half of Americans Believe That Gay Sex Is A Sin.” These three data points represent a significant divide in how Americans see the gay community. Half of the country sees homosexuality as sinful, opposes gay marriage, and believes businesses should be able to refuse | Read More »

    Trey Gowdy: a force to be reckoned with

    Until recently I’d never paid much attention to SC Congressman Trey Gowdy. He first popped on my radar when he was appointed to head the investigation into Benghazi, my concern was that the fix was in and a go-along-get-along apparatchik had been appointed to bury it so as to not discomfit Hillary Clinton as she, Hamlet-like, mulls a run for the White House. I was | Read More »

    Battle of Mogadishu. October 3-4, 1993

    Operation GOTHIC SERPENT. Blackhawk Down. The Battle of Mogadishu. They’re all the same. An attempt to turn around a deteriorating state of affairs, to the extent that anyone could really tell that Third World pest hole was deteriorating, in Somalia during Operation PROVIDE COMFORT, the CNN generated military operation/humanitarian relief campaign we found ourself embroiled in during the latter days of the GHW Bush administration. | Read More »

    Lesbian sues over artificial insemination misadventure

    Lesbian sues over artificial insemination misadventure

    I’ve written a couple of times on surrogacy, the process by which a person is hired to be carry a child on behalf of another party, and the ways it degrades the relationship between parent and child, essentially turning the child into a commodity that can be rejected if it is imperfect (here | here). The opposite side of surrogacy is artificial insemination where either | Read More »

    Mother declines cancer treatment to save baby

    Mother declines cancer treatment to save baby

    Over the past few weeks we’ve posted on the efforts of the pro-abort movement to portray abortion, even in late term, as a difficult, yet noble, act worthy of praise but at the very least an act immune from criticism. Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is one of the most prominent people to take this stance, using the late term abortion of her daughter, who | Read More »

    The Rather-ization of Neil DeGrasse Tyson

    The Rather-ization of Neil DeGrasse Tyson

    A couple of days ago we looked at the exploits of serial fabulist and pop-science impressario Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Sean Davis, writing at The Federalist, took the time to dig into the various anecdotes Tyson lards his lectures with which are designed to make him look smart and those he doesn’t like look dumb. Of particular interest was a quote that he attributed to President | Read More »

    Cindy Sheehan: Democrats support war because of “reverse racism”

    Cindy Sheehan: Democrats support war because of "reverse racism"

    One of the questions everyone has been asking since 20111, when Obama started his slow motion, unilateral and ineffectual wars against a lot of stuff in the Arab world, is where the hell is Cindy Sheehan? Sheehan, you may recall, was the frothing, addled woman who shambled about the political landscape during President Bush’s second term protesting the Iraq War based on the loss of | Read More »

    Elizabeth Warren: Money talks and populist bullcrap walks

    If politicians “grow” in office, then Elizabeth Warren can now play center for the San Antonio Spurs and claim Japan’s Sumo championship title. Warren’s only compelling attribute, other than the high cheekbones that are a hallmark of Cherokee ancestry, is her reputation as an “economic populist,” someone who, like most rich liberals, spends every waking hour nannying you to make sure you are making the | Read More »

    The anti-vaccine cult

    One of the interesting things about the elevation of science to a secular religion is watching as science begins to mimic the behavior of religion on the eve of the Thirty Years War. In its purest form science is devoted to discovery. Truths are proven. Axioms are tested and retested. Science today has become a hodgepodge of beliefs that have more in common with the | Read More »

    Military officers resigning over policy differences is a bad idea

    Last week it was reported that Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn was urging general/flag officers in the US Armed Forces to resign if they disagreed with Obama over policy: During a question-and-answer portion of the forum, a service member urged Lamborn to work with his congressional colleagues in both parties to “support the generals and the troops in this country despite the fact that there is | Read More »
