With Duck Dynasty in the news over remarks made by one of its cast members, some conservatives are questioning the very existence of reality TV shows. Say “reality TV” and most people think of The Bachelor or [...]

The Administration is Discovering Private Enterprise is Complicated

gvtrgltns2President Barack Obama recently uttered one of the most frustrating, angering and mind-numbingly uninformed things ever extruded by a government official.

ObamaCare is in the midst of its gi-normous, historic, inevitable fail – taking down with it the entire health insurance industry and large swaths of [...]

Duck Flap: Truth is 'hate' to those who 'hate' truth

dckdynstyAs widely reported, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E’s breakaway hit “Duck Dynasty,” recently ran a-fowl of homosexual pressure groups, ruffling “progressive” feathers throughout concentrated pockets of deep blue America. He remains suspended “indefinitely” for candidly summarizing, in a recent interview with GQ Magazine, the millennia-long “Love [...]

Abandoning Our Liberties And Livelihoods: Lessons From The Obamacare Debacle

You’ve got to hand it to President Obama’s partisans among the pundits: they won’t be deterred, no matter how bad the President’s policies prove to be.

Even as Mr. Obama himself continuously alters and delays implementation of his own healthcare agenda (all without congressional participation), his faithful followers in [...]

Joseph BH McMillan Reviews The God Argument: The Case against Religion and for Humanism, by AC Grayling.

The best I could say about The God Argument is that it is just another contribution to the singularly undistinguished tradition of the ‘thoroughly mediocre … utilitarian Englishmen’ who walk ‘clumsily and honorably in Bentham’s footsteps’. It also has that ‘small-soul smell’ of the ‘socialist dolts and flatheads’ in their drive for the ‘animalization of [...]

A Bonhoeffer Christmas

bnhfr2It’s time now for something to be done. He who has the courage to act must know that he will probably go down in German history as a traitor. But if he fails to act, he will be a traitor before his own conscience.

What Makes American Children Want to Kill?

hpnchngFor more than 237 years, America has been the most free, peaceful, prosperous, generous and yes, well-armed society on earth. Through most of this period, parents taught their children to pray, to honor thy mother and father, to tell the truth, to work, sacrifice, earn and own, [...]

Obamacore

This article is about the travesty called the Common Core Standards. Its design began before Obama was elected but I and others refer to it as Obamacore because Obama played a major role in imposing it on the country, and like Obamacare it was passed without being read, and [...]

Homosexuals Get Duck Dy-Nasty

When I saw the headline yesterday about how “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson had commented on a certain sexuality-defined group, I wondered how long it would be before he got the “treatment.”

I saw the next headline no more than a few hours later.

In case you haven’t heard, the faith-filled Louisianan wound up in [...]

Duck Dynasty And The New Fascism In America

The network A&E issued a statement late Wednesday branding Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s recent statements to GQ about sin and homosexuality unacceptable and indicated that his beliefs “in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who [sic] have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.” The network has placed Phil under [...]

‘Duck Dynasty’ Controversy Should Have Us Talking More Politics and Religion

phlrbrtsnAs Duck Dynasty fans rally behind the bearded reality TV family’s patriarch and Washington’s so-called power brokers attack each other over the budget, I can’t help but think about that an old etiquette tip that admonishes us not to talk politics and religion in polite company. Christmas [...]

Governor Christie’s Vanishing Mystique Is Good News

Though it is not yet 2014, the Republican “Establishment” is already attempting to determine the party’s candidate for the 2016 presidential election. And their top picks range all the way from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Any true conservatives are immediately pronounced “unelectable” and their candidacies declared dead on [...]

We Feel Your Pain

rcsnFor you young conservatives, the first five years of the Obama presidency must have seemed like a lifetime, with the prospect of three more a thought almost too awful to bear. And it’s not hard to see why. It’s not just the lies behind Obamacare that rankle, [...]

Pope’s Time Magazine Recognition is Ominous

ppfrncs2A big pre-Christmas news story was that Roman Catholic leader Pope Francis was named Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year.” That happening requires an interpretation. In my estimation, it is one that is an ominous sign for cultural trends. While I’m happy that the Pope was selected [...]

How the United States Will Amend the Constitution To Rein In A Power Drunk Washington

On December 7th, nearly 100 state legislators, many distinguished, representing 32 states, assembled at Mount Vernon.

They gathered at the homestead of George Washington, 15 miles from the capital city named for him. The purpose? To discuss how, safely, to revive an overlooked, but invaluable, provision in the United States Constitution to allow a [...]

Leftists to Americans: ‘Embrace the Government Suck’

dmcrts5Uber-Leftist House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently chided her caucus to vote for a Paul Ryan-Patty Murray budget agreement – which they didn’t particularly like – by telling them to “Embrace the suck.” Stay classy, Congresswoman.

This is the same woman who teed up the ObamaCare [...]

Act of Real Heroism Call to Rafael and Ted Cruz

rftdcrzJunior Texas Senator Ted Cruz has captured the imagination of many American conservatives hungry for a “real deal” statesman willing to stand up for American principles and values. His fiery pro-American tone is undoubtedly inherited from his very fiery father, Rev. Rafael Cruz.

Rev. Rafael Cruz has [...]

When Britain Savages Itself

To Hell With Paul Krugman

The hope and change he promised never materialized, instead replaced with deteriorating conditions.

Angst over Ryan-Murray Agreement is Symptomatic of a Deeper Divide

paulryanThe Ryan-Murray budget agreement has certainly provoked some sharp disagreement on the right flank of the conservative blogosphere. Actually, the agreement represents a true compromise in that each side achieved part of some of its aims, and both sides abandoned (if only temporarily) many of their desired [...]

Officer J.D. Tippit

This is part II of my thoughts on JFK and his assassination, with the 50th anniversary of the president’s death only recently passed. Certainly, and regrettably, the conspiracy folks had their day in the sun…again.

Get over it: Jesus and Santa are White

sntsclsjsSome people want to give Fox News’s Megyn Kelly a lump of coal for Christmas after she remarked on Wednesday that Jesus and Santa Claus were white and that those who had a problem with it should just get over it. Well, I’m making a list and [...]
