Black on Black History Month and Race

on February 10, 2014, 7:12 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Ah, another Black History Month, or should I say Annual Bash America Month. Every year the usual suspects (Democrats and liberal media) use the month to promote hate via false narratives such as young black men are routinely hunted by whites; Conservatives and Republicans hate a commercial that features a biracial couple, and so on. You know the drill. America […]

Devvy’s News, February 10th 2014

on February 10, 2014, 6:38 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

By Devvy Kidd / http://devvy.com/ Americans were handed a shock in August 2008 when the banking crisis unfolded – an issue untold numbers of us warned about for decades. It is wonderful to see so many organizations, tea party chapters and 9-12 groups not only becoming activists when that catastrophe hit, but also with a burning desire to know what […]

Civility, Socialism and the Governor

on February 10, 2014, 6:28 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

By David Deming Original Post From New York State comes news that Governor Andrew Cuomo has declared that “extreme conservatives” have “no place in the state of New York.”  I don’t know why anyone, conservative or otherwise, would want to remain in a state with high tax rates that is notorious for its hostility to business.  But even so, the […]

Posted  by Joe Wurzelbacher Original Post America: Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and.. Chevrolet? I wonder, does that include gay marriage, gay and lesbian families and gay teens now?

So far,  the city has fired three school principals, and The Wall Street Journal  reports, “Nearly 140 teachers and administrators in Philadelphia public  schools have been implicated […]

ONLY WASHINGTON KNOWS BEST By Paul Craig Roberts Original Post The control freaks in Washington think that only the decisions that Washington makes and imposes on other sovereign countries are democratic. No other country on earth is capable of making a democratic decision. The world has witnessed this American self- righteousness for eons as Washington overthrows one democratic government after […]

By Sarge / Thanks for Listening “Trickle-down theory” is a term in United States politics attributed to Will Rogers, who said during the Great Depression that “money was all appropriated for the top in hopes that it would trickle down to the needy. Hey! Guess what! We’ve got another major fiscal deadline coming directly at us like the “World Killer” […]

Obama at Prayer Breakfast: ‘Killing the Innocent’ Is ‘Ultimate Betrayal of God’s Will’

on February 7, 2014, 8:54 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

At the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. on Thursday,  President Barack Obama said that “killing the innocent” is the “ultimate  betrayal of God’s will.” But the president was talking about terrorism, not abortion: “Extremists  succumb to an ignorant nihilism that shows they don’t understand the  faiths they claim to profess, for killing the innocent is never  fulfilling God’s will.

By: Erick Erickson / RedState The Republicans look like they are doing well and headed to pick up the Senate.  Polling in Arkansas, Louisiana, and elsewhere shows strong Republican support. Ironically, the GOP may wind up still losing the Senate because of Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky.  Another new, independent poll — this one from WHAS-TV and the Louisville […]

“If these negotiations [with Iran] fail, there are two grim alternatives,” said Sen. Richard Durbin, “a nuclear Iran, or war, or perhaps both.” Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham returned from the Munich security conference saying that even John Kerry agrees that President Obama’s Syrian policy has failed. They are urging another look at air strikes. North Korea is warning […]

Thoughts On The Super Bowl And Sports In General

This column is archived here. I have always enjoyed sports. As a youngster, I played organized sports–even into college. Over the years, I played football, basketball, and baseball. I ran track. And I was on the high school wrestling team. Football and wrestling were my two favorite sports. As an adult, I have always enjoyed watching college and professional sports […]

by Tad Cronn / Original Post It doesn’t happen too often, but I must admit that I was wrong. (Just to be clear, the admitting it part is what doesn’t happen often. I’m wrong all the time, but I usually just shut up and hope my wife doesn’t notice.) But when I said in past articles that President Obama’s use of […]

by Joseph Backholm Original Post Recently, Eastside Catholic High School caused an uproar when they dismissed their vice-principal who entered a same-sex “marriage” in violation of church teaching. In a story that could have implications for this case, as well as for churches everywhere, last week the Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD) filed a complaint against a Catholic […]

The Obamacare Scam

The Obamacare Scam

on February 7, 2014, 6:45 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

The Affordable Care Act is a scam. Before Obamacare, indeed before managed care health plans, catastrophic policies had high deductibles and fairly low costs. That’s because they were purchased solely for financial protection against the cost of medical catastrophes like coma, car crashes and cancer. They were true insurance and thus relatively inexpensive. People reached for their checkbook, not their […]

By Michelle Malkin What are you doing for Valentine’s Day? Bleeding-heart progressives across the country are raising money for “an evening of music, song and sharing love for recently released People’s Lawyer Lynne Stewart.” Warm fuzzies for one of the world’s most notorious terrorist helpers? I can’t think of a more stomach-turning way to mark the holiday. Thanks to the […]

Hillary’s question: not if, but how

on February 6, 2014, 6:59 AM / in Opinion

By Matt Bai, Yahoo News Let’s be clear about this much: no matter what the soothsayers on cable TV tell you, Hillary Clinton is no more likely to clear the Democratic field and avoid a primary in 2016 than Dennis Rodman is to become her secretary of state. Walter Mondale couldn’t pull that off in 1984, and Al Gore couldn’t […]

The CBO on Obama’s bifurcated economy. By Matt Purple / The American Spectator “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.” So said Hillary Clinton at a fundraiser back in 2004. Conservatives, in a rush to tag Clinton as a Marxist, sometimes strip out the context; she was talking about repealing President Bush’s tax cuts. […]

The American Scene French Catholics are outraged at new sex education curricula in French public schools. I think the outrage is largely misplaced, but I wrote a post (in French) arguing to my fellow French Catholics that they should realize they’re a (tiny) minority now and they shouldn’t be surprised when the majority enacts public school curricula that disagree with […]
