This column is archived here. I realize it is hard for some people to understand (especially those holding political office), but in the United States, “We the People” are the sovereigns. America has no king. In America, “We the People” are Caesar. Someone rightly said, “In America, the people rule; they have the power of the ballot box, the jury […]

Troublesome

on November 6, 2013, 7:48 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

There is a disturbing trend happening in the highest levels concerning the United States military and the men who have helped to make it the greatest fighting force the world has ever known, and a president who seems determined to remand it into the hands of less experienced, more politically agreeable people. I call this a trend for a reason […]

“Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don’t fall out of the sky. They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens.

Some will probably remember the incident, on October 16, 2013, when a House stenographer stepped to the House floor microphone and summarily chastised the entire U.S. House of Representatives. This chastisement occurred during the final moments of the House voting on H.R. 2775, the 2014 appropriations act. Most won’t recognize that House Resolution number because the mainstream media, when talking […]

Jonathan S. Tobin | @tobincommentary Original Post The Virginia governor’s race was supposed to prove how the Tea Party destroyed the GOP. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli was supposed to be too extreme and too much of a right-winger to be competitive. McAuliffe, who had a double-digit lead as late as two weeks ago, was coasting to victory on the strength of […]

Memo to Merkel: Tell Obama to Take a Hike

Chutzpah. I believe that’s the word for it. Just days after learning the Americans have been tapping her phones and taping her conversations, Angela Merkel has been publicly upbraided by the U.S. Treasury for being a bad global citizen. What did she do to deserve this? Merkel just won a third term as chancellor with a record vote and has […]

Indeed, in the study, four Australian and  British psychologists also claim that racism is associated with opposition to  gun control. The lead paragraph on this study in Friday’s New York Daily News summed up  the claim […]

Have Churches Become Agents Of The State?

on November 2, 2013, 7:27 AM / in National News, Opinion

This column is archived here. Then-Senator Lyndon Baines Johnson devised what has proven to be a brilliant strategy in which to silence and neuter America’s churches. His bill, which created the 501c3 tax-exempt corporation status for churches back in 1954, has, over the decades, effectively muted America’s pulpits. The vast majority of churches today are thoroughly and completely intimidated by […]

Things may be changing “My Christian home and education did not teach me what God wanted to do with my life.

Dirty Ads

Dirty Ads

on November 1, 2013, 6:22 AM / in Opinion

I have this theory about negative ads for political campaigns. It is something like this, “if the depth of a candidate is so shallow that nothing more can be said about his or her position on any subject then start throwing mud at the opponent”. Hiwassee College history instructor John Prince says it’s not uncommon for political ads to turn negative when […]
