Politics and the Rise of ‘Christian’ Polytheism

on July 22, 2017, 7:45 AM / in Opinion

An email from a constituent and professing Christian last week helped crystallize my understanding of a view of civil government and politics that is being touted by an increasing number of professing Christians. When thoughtfully considered, it amounts to what could be called nothing less than “Christian” polytheism. The email said this: “Do we want the Legislature enforcing our faith-based […]

Though we have never met, I smiled recently seeing my favorite Walmart employee. For over ten years, I witnessed him gathering shopping carts in the parking lot. He is a white millennial who only has the use of one arm, walks with a severe limp and appears slightly mentally challenged. I once saw him leaving work driving a new looking […]

Is Iran in Our Gun Sights Now?

on July 21, 2017, 8:57 AM / in Opinion

“Iran must be free. The dictatorship must be destroyed. Containment is appeasement and appeasement is surrender.” Thus does our Churchill, Newt Gingrich, dismiss, in dealing with Iran, the policy of containment crafted by George Kennan and pursued by nine U.S. presidents to bloodless victory in the Cold War. Why is containment surrender? “Because freedom is threatened everywhere so long as […]

If you think Obamacare is bad (and it is), Ryancare, Trumpcare, Obamacare 2.0–call it whatever you will–was even worse. In spite of fierce bullying tactics by House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and President Donald Trump, ONE MAN stood like a stonewall against it. He would not be bullied or bribed, and he almost single-handedly stopped this […]

By Ben Shapiro Expectations define behavior. The success of a marriage nearly always depends on the expectations of the parties going in. If you believe marriage is going to be a rose garden of happy trips to the beach interspersed with moonlight dinners and foot massages, you’re more likely to end up cheating on your spouse when that doesn’t materialize.

QUESTIONABLE POLICE SHOOTINGS — IS THIS THE REASON?

Anything that can be abused, will be.  I’ve written that many times because it is a universal truth about basic Human Nature. If a welfare program can be abused, it will be.  If police are given discretion when to activate or turn off their body cameras, that ability will be abused. In the case of a 40 year-old Australian fiance […]

The following was released by the Congressman’s office this week. Just so we have no pretense as to our position on the work the Congressman is doing, we are willing to admit that the Congressman was somewhere near the bottom of the barrel as a Republican candidate.

By BEN MARQUIS By all appearances it would seem that Republicans have once again reached an impasse on their plans to repeal and replace Obamacare and have kicked the health care can down the road once more. Meanwhile, as the GOP has been almost singularly focused on their futile attempt to please each and everyone with a health care bill, they have virtually […]

By Charlie Daniels  Many times, when I do a column about the appalling state of affairs in our nation or point out issues that are irritating to me, somebody asks a perfectly fair and legitimate question. “Okay, we all know what’s wrong. We agree with you, but what is the answer? You’re able to critique, but you don’t have solutions.” Basically, […]
