The Obama Credo

on March 12, 2013, 11:48 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Original Post By Stella Paul I believe that a child who pretends his pastry is a gun poses an imminent danger, but 5,000 criminal illegal aliens released from jail enhance public safety. I believe that New Yorkers must be protected from the risk of drinking 16 ounces of soda, but exposed to the risk of bringing Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law […]

By Bruce Bawer If the many postings I’ve seen on Facebook this weekend are any indication, the story of Nicky Howse, as told in the Daily Mail on Saturday, has already achieved a good deal of visibility on both sides of the Atlantic, which is terrific. But in my view absolutely everybody in the free world should know about this, […]

Last Friday’s Surprisingly Strong Jobs Numbers Aren’t Real

on March 12, 2013, 4:16 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Written by Bob Adelmann At first blush the jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday looked pretty good, catching establishment economists off-guard by about 80,000 new jobs. Instead of the 160,000 new jobs expected in February, the BLS reported 236,000, which pushed down the unemployment rate to 7.7 percent. This came on top of a drop […]

Communism: What you don’t know is killing the unborn

by Kristen Hatten I have written several pieces about China, from my most recent post on “birth tourism” to my coverage of the It’s A Girl documentary and the work Women’s Rights Without Frontiers is doing to save baby girls.

Expose Teaparty Infiltraitors

on March 11, 2013, 4:13 AM / in National News, News, Opinion, State News

Wishful thinking aside that everything will be hunky dory after April 15th has seen a huge turnout in tea party protests nationwide, it’s quite likely that a number of them will be attended by thugs whose sole purpose is to discredit the movement with inappropriate behavior (e.g. violence, crudeness, anything to make legitimate protesters look bad). The communists are good […]

Rand Paul, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham Are All Wrong

on March 9, 2013, 9:07 AM / in Opinion

Posted by Thomas DiLorenzo From the LRC Blog So Senator Rand Paul held a thirteen-hour filibuster to protest the Obammunists’ assertion of a “right” to murder American citizens with drones.  Senators McCain and Graham predictably defended the murder of American citizens without any due process because, well, because they are fascists, as is the hysterical David Frum and quite a […]

Christian, Please Wake Up!

on March 8, 2013, 9:14 AM / in Opinion, Religion

What is it going to take for pastors and churches to wake up and realize that America is in the throes of a burgeoning police state? Ladies and gentlemen, the long-standing veneration for law and order does not include blind submission to governmental abuse of power. Yet, it seems that very few Christian conservatives are even paying attention to what […]

BRING AMERICA BACK TO HER RELIGIOUS ROOTS

on March 8, 2013, 4:11 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

For years I have listened quietly while others have explained to me their reasoning for separating the Christian Church from government. And while I replied on several instances that I felt their summaries were flawed, I never held it against them and still don’t. But this time read the words of Pastor Roger Anghis and maybe you might understand the […]

Late last week I learned that nullification bills regarding protecting the Second Amendment were introduced and passed in one house in four states. In fact, the fallout from the New York attack on law-abiding gunowners as been swift. I’m told that half of the counties in New York have introduced resolutions decrying the new gun-grabbing law and a third of the counties have […]

The Law Of Necessity

on March 4, 2013, 4:49 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

This column is archived here. Most of us are taught from childhood to respect and obey the law. On the whole, Americans are law-abiding people. This is only fitting for a nation that was built on the principles of law. Remember, at our core, this is supposed to be a “nation of laws, not men.” This is one reason that […]
