  • Is Questioning Obama ‘Offensive’?

    No doubt you’ve heard about CBS’ decision to ban billboards questioning Barack Obama’s eligibility for office as "offensive, misleading or incompatible with community standards." That’s fine. As I have explained before, I don’t care if CBS prohibits the use of | Read More »

  • Obama Tells Jews Where They Can Live

    Barack Obama is taking what he and his administration refer to as "a more balanced approach to Middle East policy." Let me explain what that means in real terms. It indicates the U.S. government is now using its clout with | Read More »

  • Is This the End of America?

  • What’s Wrong With Socialism?

    Sometimes those of us who have been around for a while take too much for granted.   I tend to assume, for instance, that most Americans understand socialism is an evil, immoral system of economics and government.      But then | Read More »

  • Why Colin Powell is Wrong

    I don’t know whether the endorsement of Barack Obama by former Secretary of State Colin Powell will change any voters’ minds, but I’d like to attempt to change some minds about Colin Powell. Powell is perceived as a steady, moderating | Read More »

  • Biden, Faith, Patriotism and Taxes

    Following Joe Biden’s logic is not always easy. Recently, he told Americans that paying more in taxes is the "patriotic" thing to do; that Jesus supported higher taxes; and that he is heeding — selectively, on the issue of taxes | Read More »

  • Sarah Palin’s Knockout Question

    In case you didn’t notice, there is a concerted war on serious biblical faith in our post-Christian society. And that’s why any day now, you can expect Sarah Palin to be asked a question designed to knock her right out | Read More »

  • Here’s to Rush Limbaugh!

    I became a Rush Limbaugh fan the first time I heard one of his "homeless updates," featuring the inimitable Clarence "Frogman" Henry on vocals. Then I heard Klaus Nomi doing "You Don’t Own Me." I’m not sure, but I think | Read More »

  • Barack Obama’s $439 Billion Secret

    Last week, I blew the whistle on Barack Obama’s secret $439 billion plan for a mysterious initiative called the "civilian national security force." We don’t know any more about this plan than we did when Obama announced it July 2 | Read More »

  • Celebrate Heller; Buy Guns

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: No court is going to preserve your God-given right to bear arms and defend yourself and your family from criminals, terrorists or tyrannical government. It’s up to you to preserve that | Read More »

  • Same-Sex Marriage Through History

    "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." — Ecclesiastes 1:9 Is there anything new under the | Read More »

  • What Do Scientists Know?

    Will the news that 31,000 scientists signed a petition rejecting the catastrophic, man-made global warming threat change the political and cultural dynamic in this country on this phantom problem? I hope so, but I sincerely doubt it. This myth, this | Read More »

  • Abuse of Power in Texas

    Question: What’s worse for children than to have parents who are members of a polygamy cult? Answer: To have the state be their parent. And that’s just what has happened in Texas following the state’s raid on the so-called polygamy | Read More »

  • For President: None of the Above

    It’s probably no secret to anyone who reads my column regularly that I will not be voting for either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton for president. But I also will not be voting for John McCain. I could tell you | Read More »

  • No Good Guys in ‘Palestine’

    Why does the U.S. government continue to promote the creation of an independent state of Palestine, which never has existed in the history of the world, is born of terrorist violence, and is pledged to the destruction of Israel? Even | Read More »

  • US Gets Serious About Border

    I have some good news to report: Washington finally is getting serious about building a border fence. Some $23 million has been allocated for engineering teams that will focus on smuggling tunnels and building a sturdier, impregnable border fence. The | Read More »

  • Hillary’s Sociopathic Lies

    I have waited a good long time to weigh in on Hillary Clinton’s lies about surviving sniper fire in Bosnia. I did so because I wanted to give the former first lady a chance to repent. She hasn’t. All she | Read More »

  • Obama Digs Hole Deeper

    When I heard Barack H. Obama compare his white grandmother — unfavorably, I might add — to his racist hatemonger of a pastor, I realized this guy would step on anyone to get to the top. In a speech being | Read More »

  • Scalia Is Wrong About Abortion

    I seldom have found myself in disagreement with Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia. He has a brilliant mind, and he knows and reveres the Constitution and the American form of government. But he’s wrong about abortion. Recently, he told | Read More »

  • What Are Red Letter Christians?

    There’s a movement afoot to seduce evangelical Christians into anti-biblical, socialist, tyrannical politics — the kind currently energizing Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. I know this because I just read a new book by the self-proclaimed godfather of the movement: Tony | Read More »
