After the Iran Deal was announced, my social media feeds lit up with both scorn and derision coming from my interventionist friends and praise and thanksgiving coming from my non-interventionist friends. While I am a very vocal non-interventionist and am glad a deal with Iran was reached rather than not, I find myself in the […]
Despite the fact the U.S. is highly dependent upon oil and natural gas, and it is scientifically dubious that their production and use is destroying the earth, environmental activists continue to expand their efforts to relentlessly get the energy sources stamped out of society. Now there […]
On the night of 9/11/2012 our Special Mission in Benghazi was attacked. Lost were four men who served the country proudly and at great risk. It never been fully explained what happened that night, and very probably may never be. But there are some aspects of the entire encounter that is Troubling to the American […]
Now that it is a question of “when” and not “if” Iran gets a bomb. What are the ramifications for Israel. The Obama administration appears to have been helping the mullahs get what they want, conceding on a whole host of “redlines” that the State Department had set. Our policies for the negotiations were based […]
For years, the right has been frustrated by the left’s ability to unite various interest groups successfully as a force. The right hasn’t had as much success, with factions calling each other RINOs and lecturing about Reagan’s 11th Commandment. Now, it looks like the […]
Time to redraw the map… again?
Could our cultural descent into the abyss lead to a fertile valley if we step carefully rather than allow ourselves to be pushed in?
In 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor no one sat around wringing their hands and wondering “why did they do this to us?” Instead, they responded that if the Japanese want war, we will give it to them. They then declared war and went off to fight. Compare that with today when we have […]
Re-examining a perennial topic.
You might have gotten tired of the “Greeks” who have dominated the news for the past six months. Since you were, without wanting to know it, closely involved in the consequences, you seem to be wrong. In case you overlooked […]
It appears Obama has a challenge with red lines. We all know of the one in Syria and their use of chemical weapons on its own people. And as we learned later, Obama, according to him never set a red line, but the world did. We were told to believe what we are told and […]
Democrat Congresswoman Anna Eshoo just penned an editorial for the San Francisco Chronicle. That has the patchouli whiff of her writing while sitting at the corner of Haight and Ashbury – in August 1968. It is warmed-over Hippie-Dippie, Flower Power, Socialist nonsense.
But Congresswoman Eshoo writes […]
There are those, a few, who believe this is a racist nation. They point to the fact that Americans fly the Confederate Battle Flag. They claim we honor the racist Generals and Politicians from the Old South. They further claim that in order to stamp out racism […]
For the past six years, conservatives have been on the defensive, opposing various aspects of the Obama agenda. But now that Republicans control both houses of Congress, and with the 2016 presidential campaign looming, conservatives must articulate a positive governing agenda.
Several obstacles have hindered such an articulation. […]
John Gray has been described as a secular prophet, a soothsayer fond of nihilism. If so one should expect prophetic language, secular jeremiads impugning contemporary political theory. His central message is stark. Tear away the thin veneer of civilization and one finds an allegorical everyman nothing […]
On the evening of June 17, 2015, 21-year-old Dylann Roof, of Shelby, North Carolina, walked into Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, where a Bible study session was taking place. He was invited to participate by those sharing the fellowship, and […]
Four Marines are dead. Gunned down in cold blood by a cowardly terrorist named Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez in Chattanooga, TN. These four Marines will never go home. Four families’ lives are forever changed. America lost four heroes.
Today’s horrific shootings took place at a recruiting center […]
Remember in 2009 when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with a poorly translated “reset” button? Or Donald Trump saying recently that if he ascends to the White House in 2016, U.S.-Russian relations will improve, as he and President […]
We are living is a time when morality is no longer relevant, and when responsibility for oneself, is based on relational or negotiated settlements. Even in the case of Europe, the Greece debt is ignored and even more money is thrown at a socialist state that has already failed. Negotiating and blaming the rest of […]
More than two dozen speakers include Jim DeMint, Dr. Benn Steil, John Stossel, and more
August Conference to challenge Federal Reserve policy head on: are central banks the problem or the solution?
Jackson Hole, Wyoming – Today the American Principles Project announced a list of more than […]
We used to occasionally hear of Christian persecution taking place around the world, and it was disturbing but never on the scale we’re seeing today. ISIS is brutally slaughtering not just hundreds, but tens of thousands of Christians, Jews and other dissenters who oppose its repressive version of […]
Much has been written about the Kingdom of God, ranging from ridicule to the ‘Hollywood spectacular’ of chariots and trumpets.
I can’t claim to be familiar with all interpretations and criticisms, but I am unconvinced by those I have encountered. And the reason is simple – I can’t find much Scriptural support for them.
