    • Watching the “Invincibles”
      The extraordinary and typically lawless retreat by President Obama from the demand that Americans shut up and get new plans from the non-functioning exchanges has led to a key dilemma, especially for young people aged 18 to 34. They are the funders of this hair-brained scheme known as Obamacare. They [...]
    • Party of Educational Elites
      The recent gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey produced very different results for the Republican nominees but exit polling showed identical patterns when it came to electoral divisions based on education level. In both states, the GOP nominees – Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia and Chris Christie in New Jersey [...]
    • Overheated Rhetoric
      This is Hugh Hewitt for Townhall.com. With the government shutdown in Washington heating up, the rhetoric – particular from the left – has gotten out of hand.

    • Gender Politics at Homecoming
      A recent report in the Philadelphia Inquirer tells the story of the Western Pennsylvania school board that is reviewing a request by a biologically female transgender student who wants to appear on the ballot for homecoming king.

    • Lessons from Reagan
      Republicans seek to follow Ronald Reagan’s example to recapture the presidency but they’re confused about the way he actually won. Reagan didn’t win by mobilizing conservatives: in fact, the percentage of self-described “conservatives” in the electorate in 1980 was only 28 percent – the lowest in the last 30 years! Reagan [...]

    • Late-term Abortion Ban Is Worthy GOP Goal
      In a poll done by Gallup earlier this year, the biggest complaint lodged against the Republican Party was “inability to compromise.” When I read the daily headlines, I see this theme continue. Republicans, particularly tea party Republicans, are portrayed as obstructionist, extreme, unreasonable, and unwilling to compromise. But let’s get perspective. If we are [...]

      In the midst of all the racial hullabaloo stirred up by so-called advocates for black empowerment after the Zimmerman trail, guess who is really being harmed? Answer: Black America.

    • Back to the Negotiating Table
      Suddenly, Israel is back at the negotiating table with representatives of the Palestinian Authority. To get the long stalled talks restarted, Israel agreed to release more than 100 convicted terrorists over a period of time as talks proceed. It was a high price to pay but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is [...]
    • ‘Separation’ Nonsense From Lying Secularists
      Anti-Christian extremist groups like the ACLU, the Freedom From Religion Foundation and People for the American Way hate God. They also hate America. True America.

    • Good News on Race Differences
      The media continue to stress glaring inequalities between blacks and whites but on the most important measure of them all, African-Americans have made spectacular progress.

    • Run Guillory Against Landrieu For Louisiana Senate Seat
      Amid the dense fog and hot air blowing around the Republican Party, a new voice of clarity has emerged. It’s the voice of Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory, who announced several weeks ago his departure from the Democratic Party, which he calls “the party of disappointment,” to become a Republican. I wrote [...]
    • Non-Sexualized Boy Scouts Alternative Launched
      Recently, millions of Americans were shocked and saddened when the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) disgracefully bowed to left-wing political pressure and became something it had never before been: a hyper-politicized, aberrantly sexualized petri dish for social and sexual experimentation. Created in 1910 to “prepare young people to make ethical and [...]
    • Real Immigration Reform
      For months now I have written extensively in numerous national publications about the treacherous legislation that is the “scamnesty” bill that passed out of the U.S. Senate last week. When you have a “gang” writing legislation you get gangster government just like this. All of the people — and by all I mean all– claiming [...]
    • The rainbow assault on America’s children
      It’s bad enough that the Supreme Court is inventing rights to homosexuality-as-marriage that don’t exist in the Constitution – but with the worldwide phenomenon of “gay pride” in our streets each summer, there’s reason to believe this movement is too much to overcome. But is that really true? Anything based on [...]
    • Same-sex marriage is war on religion
      The Book of Proverbs, part of biblical canon, once a vital part of American culture, tells us: “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” It’s this haughty spirit, this pride that precedes destruction, that lies behind the Supreme Court’s decision last week to bury the Defense of Marriage [...]
    • Obama’s Late-Term Abortion Conundrum
      The House passed a historic piece of legislation last week that prohibits late term abortion. The “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” — introduced by Rep.

    • SCOTUS and Marriage: What It Means
      There are four key things to know following Wednesday’s much-anticipated U.S. Supreme Court opinions on the hot-button issue of marriage.

    • Canning Trash Talk
      “Well, your mama wears combat boots.” Perhaps an insult in a day and age when the men went to fight in war, and women kept the home fires burning, now such an insult could be taken as a compliment for one that supports an American’s willingness to voluntarily serve his, or [...]
    • A Reproach to America
      It is a sad day for our nation. The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has ruled that DOMA, the Federal Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. The Act defined marriage as a relationship between one man and one woman. Now our federal tax dollars will be spent on federal [...]
    • Court rulings elevate sexual identity over race
      The Supreme Court’s decisions are dividing Democrats as much as Republicans. This week the U.S. Supreme Court issued a series of opinions defining civil rights that could portend a dramatic change in American culture, but it’s probably not the one you’ve heard the most about. Despite all the bluster, the reality is [...]
    • Grand Old Propaganda

      SCOTUS Saves the Biggest for Last By Thursday of this week, the high court will have ruled on four very key cases involving affirmative action, voter’s rights, state’s rights, and the definition of marriage.

      More often than not, when someone says, “I hate to say I told you so,” they love to say they told you so. Prepare to have a bucket of gloat dumped on your head. Still, there are those rare occasions when people both say it and mean it. A few possible [...]

      “The U.S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it.

    • Sequester: The Sky Did Not Fall
      In March the president and his cabinet told us the sky would fall if the sequester – across-the-board federal budget cuts – went forward.  But like Chicken Little’s fear the sky was falling when an acorn hit his head, the sequester has been something of a non-event. The stock and housing [...]
    • Two Black Democrats Become Republicans in Louisiana
      Anyone who doubts that the Republican Party can attract black voters needs only look south to Louisiana.

    • The Administration: Scarier Than You Could Imagine
      If a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it, does it make a sound? If the Obama Administration breaks the law at will, lies to the American people, uses every government agency at it’s disposal to punish it’s conservative/Republican enemies and no one does anything about it, [...]
    • We DO Have Some Problems Here
      Breitbart.com recently carried a report saying, “During his speech in San Jose, California on Friday, President Obama took one question from the press on national security monitoring of Americans.

    • Big Brother Obama Is Watching
      It has become evident that Barack Obama’s definition of “fundamentally transforming the United States” includes Big Brother harassing selected conservatives while monitoring everybody’s email and telephone traffic. These seem to be among the surprising duties of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the National Security Agency (NSA), respectively. It’s clear that [...]
    • E.W. Jackson enhances GOP’s Virginia ticket
      Some 25 years ago, I changed my life. A visit inside a church opened my eyes to the destructive life I was living, financed by welfare checks generously provided by American taxpayers.

    • We Need a Special Prosecutor
      The initial report of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration on the great Tea Party purge is disturbing.

    • Why Are You Here Today?
      The Press Dithers on the Scandals The Obama administration has tried to diminish almost every God-given right of Americans, attacking the Bill of Rights as if it’s a to-do list. The media has largely ignored or cheered their efforts, until now. The regime has committed the unpardonable sin–they’ve messed with the press. [...]
    • Memo to Christian Troops: ‘We’ve Got Your Back’
      When NBA basketball player Jason Collins recently announced to the world that he’s sexually attracted to other men, Michelle Obama tweeted, “So proud of you, Jason Collins!

    • Mark Sanford, Welcome Back to Washington
      Put me down as happy to see former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford coming back to Washington. He handily defeated Elizabeth Colbert Busch in Tuesday’s special election for a House seat he himself once held. I hope he brings his piglets with him. Once as governor, Sanford showed up at the statehouse [...]
    • Gosnell’s teachers-union stooges
      Kermit Gosnell appears to be a big yawn to America’s teachers unions. Some of us found out on Mother’s Day weekend just how radical and stone-hearted these folks can be.

    • Planned Parenthood Targets Black Women
      In 1854, Abraham Lincoln confronted America’s first “pro-choice” Senator, Stephen Douglas, in a speech in Peoria, Illinois. “Choice” then was about slavery, not abortion. Douglas sponsored the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which addressed the sticky question of how to deal with the legality of slavery in new territories entering the union. The Kansas-Nebraska Act [...]

      If what Chris Broussard said on ESPN yesterday amounts to hate speech, then the day will soon arrive when preaching the Bible publicly is no longer free speech.

    • TOP IOWA CONSERVATIVE: Gay Marriage Could ‘Determine The Future Of The GOP’
      The modern primary system for determining presidential nominees we take for granted nowadays began in earnest in the 1970s. For the Republicans, it really started in 1976 when Ronald Reagan challenged President Ford. That year Reagan won 11 states and was the runner-up for the nomination. That’s the same number of [...]
    • Comprehensive Reform Must Include Guestworkers
      The word comprehensive is usually attached to current references to immigration reform, but the Gang of Eight’s bill is stumbling over reform of guestworkers.

    • A modest proposal for polygamy
      If we’re truly champions of diversity, it’s time to embrace polygamy, polyamory or “multiple marriage.” Those arguing for “marriage equality” at the U.S. Supreme Court this week should be ashamed of themselves.

      Republicans are getting a lot of unsolicited advice about how to recover from last year’s defeat, and most of it is either ignorant or coming from people who don’t have Republican Party victories in their game plan. One of the worst of these bits of advice is that Republicans should [...]
    • What Did You Expect?
      ‘Last week’s editorial page of The Wall Street Journal released an article entitled, “A Pope for the People,” where they make this very interesting comment on the new Pope: As for the lament that Pope Francis is merely another Catholic who believes in Catholic dogma, what do you expect?

    • Caring for the Most Vulnerable
      There is only one statistic needed to explain the outcome of the 2012 presidential election – the YouGov poll which found that only 33 percent of Americans said that Mitt Romney “cares about people like me.” Whatever excuse or explanation you may provide, perception is political reality, and many Americans are [...]

    • Laissez Faire Marriage?
      There are three kinds of people nowadays advocating the state get out of the marriage business altogether.

The next group [...]
    • Sequestration and Military Manipulation
      On Tuesday last week the White House cancelled tours of, well, the White House, another terrible fallout of the sequester the president himself designed and pushed.

      Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus has launched a nationwide “Growth and Opportunity Project” reviewing eight key areas he believes must be examined in the wake of a disappointing 2012 campaign.

    • They Keep Talking . . . and We Keep Vetting
      Rand Paul’s filibuster last week did more than get Eric Holder to back down and put in writing the President’s “new” stance on drone strikes on American soil. It did more than galvanize conservatives around any type of leadership for 13 hours. It did more than bring the Senate Minority leader to [...]

      The Democrat Party has hoisted Barack Obama up as some kind of liberal, god-like, superhero. Barry has been very happy to fill the britches of such a false god, but as some kind of anti-hero that, armed with his arrogance, can destroy federal budgets with a single bound. To the [...]

      Dr. Benjamin Carson, holder of the Medal of Freedom, shocked President Barack Obama as he spoke against political correctness and the horrendous debt facing our nation at the National Prayer Breakfast.

    • The Hypocrisy of Amnesty Advocates
      Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. The Ronald Reagan amnesty of 1986 was a conspicuous failure, and a virtually identical plan failed in 2007 when it was pushed by John McCain, Ted Kennedy and George W. Bush. Now the establishment has lined up [...]

      The Super Bowl had something for everyone this year, including fans who like blowouts and comebacks, boring games and thrillers.

      Karl Rove was once known as the “architect” but now a more appropriate nickname might be “demolition man.” Give Rove credit for one thing. He knows how to coalesce the conservative movement.

    • A Compromise That Pleases No One
      The announcement last week that the Boy Scouts of America may soon rescind its national policy prohibiting the participation of openly homosexual members and leaders fell like a thunderclap. The proposed new policy amounts to a local option, with each Boy Scout unit deciding its own policy—with no direction from the [...]
    • Divorce: Republican Style
      First Things is one of the most read social conservative blogs in the country, so when it publishes a piece titled “Not Peace but a Sword” that says it may be time to let the Republican Party split, that’s worth noticing. The piece says the Christian’s natural inclination to seek [...]

    • The Wrong Argument for Immigration Reform
      Republicans make a terrible mistake when they argue for immigration reform as a matter of GOP survival. First, it’s questionable that support for a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants will automatically win support from Hispanic voters, though it’s undeniably true that past anti-immigrant rhetoric from some conservatives has [...]

    • Immigration … and Education
      Immigration reform is coming … to the United States Congress. Of this there is no reasonable doubt and the passage of some sort of bill is as close to a political inevitability as death and taxes. Republicans thus must decide what they want to assure has a place within the legislation. [...]

      Karl vs. the Tea Party We’ve always known they hate us. They don’t want us in their “party.” They don’t believe in the same constitutional conservative principles we do.

      Another one bites the dust.

      With so many folks seeming to water down their full-bodied Conservative values into Liberal-Lite – sadly seeking to get along with Obama and win over his low-info-voters, I feel a little like Gary Cooper in the movie western, “High Noon”. As sheriff, Cooper unsuccessfully sought help to tackle bad guys scheduled [...]

    • Is This the End of “Women and Children First”?
      Cultural change sometimes comes very slowly. At other times, the velocity is almost shocking. That’s what happened when Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced that all restrictions against women in combat were to be lifted. There are pragmatic and utilitarian questions, but the bigger issue is moral. Is it indeed moral [...]

    • When Is a Victory a “Rebuke”?
      If an incumbent wins easy re-election but with reduced levels of support, is that a sign of public “rebuke”? For American media, it depends on that incumbent’s political correctness. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cruised to re-election with his party winning nearly double the support of his closest rival. But most [...]

    • Government Knows Best on Guns – and Everything
      The passionate push for gun control demonstrates the liberal compulsion to tell others how to live. Callers to my radio show insist “there’s no reason to own assault weapons” or “a gun in the house will more likely kill a family member than an intruder.” If these arguments make sense to [...]

    • Will We Change the Times? Or Let the Times Change Us?
      Searching for catchy phrases among arid platitudes in Barack Obama’s uninspired inaugural, his media admirers focused on one brief, pithy formulation. Clip: “…when times change, so must we.” That statement seemed to reflect the president’s addiction to change as a goal in itself, rather than shaping current circumstances to reflect timeless values.

    • Unprecedented Contrast
      The 2012 election is—in a number of ways—a great American worldview test.   There may have been a day when you could say—as George Wallace did—there’s not “a dime’s worth of difference” between the Democrats and the Republicans. That’s certainly not true today.   Take the issue of marriage: As recent as 1996, President [...]

      The day after the first presidential debate, the government released its new unemployment numbers at 7.8 percent, a somewhat surprising and drastic reduction from the previous 8.2 percent.

    • Political Sanity in the Last Place You’d Look
      Post debate analysis was interpreted fairly cleanly down party lines. Conservatives, Republicans and their media outlets touted Romney’s performance in light of the stacked questions, the biased moderator, and considerable less talking time. Democrats, Liberals and their media outlets declared Obama the winner because he was prepared this time, landed [...]

      Part of the problem with true “democracy” is that might makes right. It is the foundation stone for socialism, communism, fascism, even Islamism.

      This is Hugh Hewitt for Townhall. With less than three weeks until Election Day and crowds surging around Mitt Romney events in Ohio, Virginia, Colorado and Florida over the past week, the impression has grown of an Obama campaign in utter disarray.

    • The Morning Brief: October 17
      It was a draw. And by “draw” I mean Mitt Romney really lost. He lost a golden opportunity to put the nail in the Obama campaign’s coffin. Since the primary subject matter of this second Presidential  debate was the economy and jobs and Obama’s record is abysmal on both, Romney should [...]
    • On the Road to Death Panels
      With the first presidential debate and the only vice-presidential debate behind us, it seems pretty clear that so-called “social issues” are not going to get much attention in this year’s presidential politics.

    • A Bizarre Debate
      Vice President Joe Biden turned in one of the most bizarre performances in a national debate when he faced off against Congressman Paul Ryan in the presidential campaign’s sole meeting between the running mates.

      Increasingly, I am hearing the following mantra/narrative from Black Christians. “I’m voting for Obama because he is the lesser of the two evils.” This is an extremely weak veiled attempt to justify their racism and loyalty to The Black Code (never side with a white against a fellow black). From a [...]
    • Like ObamaCare, Obama Core Is Another Power Grab
      When we list the areas that Barack Obama wants to “fundamentally transform” as he promised before his 2008 election, let’s not overlook his plans for education. They are as fundamentally transformational, costly and dictatorial as ObamaCare. It’s well known that public schools are not graduating students as well-educated as before, that [...]

      Paul Ryan won. Not only is that my opinion, but it seems to be the general consensus among everyone who does not pray to someone named Marx, Mao, or Che, or who doesn’t draw a paycheck from the DNC. Even CNN grudgingly admits it with their numbers, although their headline belies [...]

    • Why the Obama bubble still hasn’t burst
      Can there be political bubbles like financial bubbles? Financial bubbles, inflated by hopes and dreams, burst when reality negates any possibility that those hopes and dreams will be realized. At that point, sky-high stock or bond or real estate prices come crashing down to earth. Can the same thing happen in politics? [...]

      If I were a part of the brain-dead racist herd of African-Americans who voted for Obama solely because he is black and celebrated him winning the presidency, I would feel pretty betrayed and embarrassed by Obama’s debate performance. I mean, after all, we were told by the MSM and the [...]

      Many have compared this election to the contest between Hoover and Roosevelt in 1932, but they’ve all missed one crucial point: Obama is Hoover.

    • As the Debates Begin…
      On Tuesday Vice President Biden said the following: “This is deadly earnest.

Mitt Romney doesn’t want to raise taxes but instead promising [...]

      …I’m more worried about the “home team” than the Dems. For years Americans have been living large, to a great extent — since the 50′s and 60′s — our nation has lived life without having to think about God. This historically, distinct Christian nation has lost its bearings, its [...]

    • Chicago Strike Tells Us Answer Is School Choice
      It says something about today’s public education reality that the two sides in the teachers’ union dispute in Chicago are the union and the mayor.

    • The Lighter Side

      The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports in its Career Guide to Industries, 2010-11 Edition that “With about 2.0 million civilian employees, the Federal Government, excluding the Postal Service, is the Nation’s largest employer.” Additionally, it uses the US Constitution to justify its position: “The Federal Government [...]

    • Depressed? How to overcome depression!
      We can get way down if we aren’t aware of how Satan works on us and how to beat the demons. I got a message from a concerned friend today asking what he should do.  I reiterated to him what my current and former pastors have taught me. I got [...]
