PETA to bear-mauled girl: You deserved it!

PETA to bear-mauled girl: You deserved it!

on December 18, 2013, 6:15 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Over the past year we have published 7 articles involving PETA and each shows the organization’s leadership and its disdain for human life. In an editorial by Wesley J. Smith, published in the  National Review Online, he has summed this picture up quickly. I really do believe that PETA is a people hating organization, at least among its leadership. Alpha wolf […]

Confession: I have no idea how to talk to my kids about sex. How do YOU do ‘the talk’?

Confession: I have no idea how to talk to my kids about sex. How do YOU do ‘the talk’?

on December 18, 2013, 6:04 AM / in Opinion

by Kirsten Andersen At nearly ten, my eldest son is a bundle of contradictions.  The world of demographics and marketing calls him a “tween,” and the description seems apt.  He is somewhere between a child and an adolescent, a gangly boy five feet tall with a video game addiction and a touch of acne who still sleeps with stuffed animals […]

The Political Corollary to You Will Be Made to Care

By: Erick Erickson / RedState   Many of you are convinced you can sit on the sidelines or quietly take the side of the Republican Establishment in the upcoming primary season.  Many of you are convinced it does not matter.  Many of you are convinced that the GOP will do the right thing once they have control. Many of you […]

The Pope and Capitalism

The Pope and Capitalism

on December 17, 2013, 7:19 AM / in Opinion

By Walter E. Williams Pope Francis, in  his apostolic exhortation, levied charges against free market  capitalism, denying that “economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and  inclusiveness in the world” and concluding that “this opinion … has  never been confirmed by the facts.” He went on to label unfettered  capitalism as “a […]

Budget deal shows the GOP has PTSD

on December 17, 2013, 6:32 AM / in Opinion

By Marc A. Thiessen / Washington Post Since taking office, Barack Obama has run the table on congressional Republicans, racking up one government-expanding victory after another — from the stimulus to Dodd-Frank, Obamacare and the $620 billion in fiscal-cliff tax increases. The GOP’s sole victory — its one, lonely government-reducing achievement — was the passage of the Budget Control Act […]

The Spiral of Absurdity

on December 17, 2013, 6:12 AM / in Opinion

by Maggie McNeill Modern man must descend the spiral of his own absurdity to the lowest point; only then can he look beyond it.  –  Václav Havel For several years now, I’ve been pointing out examples of the increasingly-bizarre claims of “sex trafficking” hysterics; regular readers have watched the claimed numbers of “sex slaves” rise along with their supposed number […]

What would you want them to do if it were your house?

on December 17, 2013, 6:00 AM / in Local News, News, Opinion

By Claire  Wolfe Original Post I took the dogs for a walk downtown yesterday afternoon. Passing a vacant house, I noticed an awful lot of water on its patio. Normally, that’s not unusual, this being the NorthWET, but it hasn’t done more than sprinkle the last couple of days. I poked around and sure enough, not only was the house […]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILL OF RIGHTS

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILL OF RIGHTS

on December 16, 2013, 6:29 AM / in Opinion

By Michael Gaddy <montezumaconstitution@gmail.com> 224 years ago today, our Bill of Rights, when ratified by the state of Virginia, became the “law of the land.” Unfortunately for Liberty, those rights are almost as inaccessible to the people today as the original document that is stored in the National Archives. To make matters worse, the great majority of people in this […]

War With China?

War With China?

on December 16, 2013, 6:18 AM / in Opinion

I’ve said it before; it’s only a matter of time before we are in a real shooting war with China. Before you start bumping fists and screaming “hell yeah”, bear in mind that some of that shooting will be taking place on American soil. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying we should ever back down from ANY aggressor, EVER, […]

Quote for Today December 16th 2013

on December 16, 2013, 6:05 AM / in Opinion

“Evil is not just a theory of paradox, but an actual entity that exists only for itself.  From its ether of manifestation that is garlanded in perpetual darkness, it not only influences and seeks the ruination and destruction of everything that resides in our universe, but rushes to embrace its own oblivion as well. To accomplish this, however, it must […]

I heard a knock on the door of my hotel room. It was Donald. “Turn on Megyn Kelly. She is reporting about an MSNBC commentator’s claim that using the term “Obamacare” is the same as calling him the N word.” http://bit.ly/18QPu5V  MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry’s accusation is absurd. It is an obvious weak attempt to distance the president from Obamacare […]

The Sheriff’s Race…..

on December 15, 2013, 10:08 AM / in Opinion

During the 1994 election I concluded as early as my first interview with David Woolfork that he was a charmer. He was smooth like a good scotch. He could recount stories that would connect you to him via your brother, your sister, your cousins, your uncle, or your parents. If you didn’t know better, you might think he grew up with you. […]

Christmas Under Assault, but Faithful Fight Back

Written by  Dave Bohon It has been a tough road the last few years for those who wish to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, and thus far this holiday season hasn’t held much hope for an end to the various and sundry attacks on those celebrating the birth of the Savior. Several weeks ago, a choir director for a […]

Where Have You Gone, Bill of Rights?

on December 15, 2013, 7:20 AM / in Opinion

On June 8, 1789 James Madison, the congressman representing Virginia’s 5th District, rose to speak in a session of the First Congress and advocated passage of a slate of amendments to the Constitution that would come to be known as the Bill of Rights. On December 15, 1791, the requisite number of states (three-quarters, or nine states) ratified 10 of […]

I am currently on the west coast doing a string of dates and will fly back home on Monday with only New Orleans left on the 20th to finish up the touring year. It’s gone by in a hurry and, as always, I have thoroughly enjoyed being on the road with my guys and thank God that I can make […]

Culture of Corruption: The Dems’ Dangerous DHS Pick

on December 13, 2013, 9:10 AM / in Opinion

 By Michelle Malkin The “S” in President Obama’s DHS doesn’t stand for “security.” It stands for “sleaze.” In the wake of Dirty Harry Reid’s sabotage of the filibuster, Democrats have rammed through the Senate nomination of a shady Chicago crony associated with dangerous Clinton corruption and at least two visas-for-sale schemes. The White House wants Alejandro Mayorkas to helm the […]

Boehner’s Crocodile Tears for Amnesty

on December 13, 2013, 8:44 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

By: Erick Erickson It is an odd fight.  Such a weird little battle over meaningless and known outcomes.  Conservatives, aware from press reports and congressional leaks, knew what would be in the Paul Ryan drafted budget plan.  The conservative groups released statements in opposition to the plan based on what they had been told.  But there was never any doubt […]

A Line In The Sand Is Being Drawn Again

This column is archived here. In March of 1836, a young man of twenty-three years of age took his sword out of its scabbard and drew a line in the sand in front of an old mission outside of San Antonio, Texas, and called on the men defending that mission who were willing to stay on the ramparts and face […]

Are the Senkakus Worth a War?

on December 13, 2013, 6:17 AM / in Opinion

“The U.S.-Japan Mutual Security Treaty of 1960 obligates the United States to treat any armed attack against any territories under the administration of Japan as dangerous to [America’s] own peace and safety. This would cover such islets as the Senkakus also claimed by Beijing.” So this author wrote 15 years ago in “A Republic Not an Empire.” And so it […]
