The passing of the Age of Obama. The American Spectator Conservatives need to wake up and start thinking past the rapidly passing age of Obama. Increasingly likely every day is that voters this November will remove Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader. By electing a new Republican Senate majority, the voters will also render Barack Obama a lame duck, one […]

The Lord is in Control, So Don’t Worry (and above all, don’t DO anything)

I have yet to find in scripture where we are instructed to just lay down and submit to EVIL.  I do find where we are instructed to RESIST EVIL and that is hard to do if you simply lay down and surrender to EVIL.  Those who preach “silence” (can’t lose those tax exemptions by speaking out)  are misleading the flock.  […]

Is Obama Wrong on Ukraine?

on May 6, 2014, 9:11 AM / in Opinion

“What Would America Fight For?” That question shouts from the cover of this week’s Economist. It is, asserts the magazine, “the question haunting its allies.” While most agree that America would fight to defend her treaty allies and to protect vital interests if imperiled, the question is raised by President Obama’s reticence in Crimea, Ukraine and Syria. Asked in Manila […]

Kevin Michalowski Open carry. Yes, it is legal in some places, but is it the best idea? Open carry advocates have every right to do what they do. If you want to make a political statement by practicing open carry, remember that in doing so you give up the tactical advantage a concealed weapon gives you. Into the Fray, Episode […]

Close Call

on May 6, 2014, 8:35 AM / in Opinion

Something diabolical, something that would have adversely affected the rights of every American came frighteningly close to happening in the US Senate last year and I’ll bet you didn’t even know it was happening, I know I didn’t. On March 23, 2013, an amendment to “uphold the Second Amendment and prevent the United States from entering into United Nations Arms […]

Investor Business Daily Benghazi Cover-Up: The administration’s tangled web of deceit now includes lying about prior lies as the White House press secretary tries to cover up its cover-up of why four Americans died in a terrorist attack.

If a single word could sum up the goal of Barack Obama’s Asia tour, it would be “reassurance.” Obama went to Tokyo to reassure Japan that, should China attempt to seize its Senkaku Islands, America will fight at her side. He reassured Seoul of our commitment to defend South Korea. He went to Manila to reassure the Filipinos, who threw […]

I met Garnett ‘Bill’ Bell some years later then the time of his book at Fayetteville, NC at some Engineering function near Fort Bragg. Special thanks to Bill Bell for reminding me. As the US Marine Corps helicopter lifted from the roof of the American Embassy in Saigon at daybreak on April 30, 1975, I thought about the carnage that would result […]

The last line of our Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. flag speaks of “one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.” We, or at least my generation, learned the pledge early in our lives and repeated it in our schools, scout meetings and just about anywhere else there was anything resembling an official gathering. We learned it […]

What Conservatives Want from Washington

What Conservatives Want from Washington

on May 3, 2014, 6:05 AM / in Opinion

By Bruce Walker / American Thinker Conservatives have historically been divided into three areas of interest:  national security, fiscal soundness, and social morality.  Today all stripes of conservatives just want Washington to leave them alone. National security conservatives, historically anti-communists, support the federal government when it protects them from foreign dangers, defends our nation’s interests against threats, and supports those values […]

 George F.

As I often state –  The only *color* we humans should take note of is the *color* of another’s HEART. Skin color does NOT indicate who and what a person is –  it is the color of the HEART that makes that identification. One can change the color of their heart by being washed in the Blood of Jesus.

“Upon further review, the ruling on the field (court)…” These are the words stated by referees after they’ve gone to the reply booth (monitor) in order to clarify a controversial call. Often, the reason for the review is because of a coach’s challenge. Therefore, in the same light, let us review the case of LA Clippers owner, Donald Sterling. There […]

By Walter E. Williams Let me run through a few good ideas. I think it’s a good idea for children to eat healthful, wholesome foods. In the raising of our daughter, before-dinner treats were fresh vegetables, and after-dinner treats were mostly fruits. I arrive at my gym sometime between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m., at least four times a week, […]

Meanwhile, the NAACP, which withdrew Sterling’s lifetime achievement award he was set to receive this week, said they’re willing to “forgive” him — if he makes some strategic donations. […]

By William Norman Grigg  / Pro Libertate Blog The conflict between the BLM and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has laid bare evidence of deeply entrenched institutional racism. No, I’m not referring Mr. Bundy’s awkward but earnest effort to encourage people of all ethnic backgrounds to seek an end to the suffocating embrace of government paternalism. I’m talking about the fact that the […]
