There They Go Again

With metronomic precision each year the national press corps begins running columns by “religion scholars” who wish you to know that Jesus Christ is a fictional character. Mind you, no newspaper of note in the world is brave enough to run a similar story about the Prophet Mohammed. The latest comes from a “lecturer in religious studies” from Australia named Raphael Lataster. The Washington Post | Read More »

Hanukkah, Jeb Bush, and the Virginity of Mary

Yes, believe it or not, last night I covered all three of those topics. In the first segment, I explained what Hanukkah is. I covered a bit of ground on Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. Then I spent a pretty significant amount of time explaining why, if you are a Christian, the virginity of Mary is pretty fundamental to your beliefs. In fact, you probably | Read More »

Communists Win the Day. Frank Marshall Davis Would Be Proud Of Obama

Few could have predicted that communist regimes would win the day on December 17, 2014. Communism was so twentieth century. But Barack Obama, promising to fundamentally transform America, has done so. His mentor, communist activist Frank Marshall Davis, would be proud of him. To reiterate my conclusion on Barack Obama’s world view and policy objectives: to make the world safer, the United States must be | Read More »

Three Questions for Jeb Bush

Jeb Bush has declared he is officially looking at running for the Presidency in 2016. Many conservatives acted with horror. But before dismissing Jeb Bush, I think conservatives should probe where his mind and heart are on issues. He was an excellent governor of Florida. I disagree with Bush on common core and immigration, but I think his record in office generally stands the test | Read More »

Jane Mayer is an Idiot

Jane Mayer is a staggering idiot. I say that because of this line in her piece on the Democrats’ torture propaganda: “in releasing the long-awaited Senate Select Intelligence Committee report on the C.I.A.’s interrogation-and-detention program, , the committee chairman, proved that Congress can still perform its most basic Madisonian function of providing a check on executive-branch abuse” This would be the same Dianne Feinstein who | Read More »

The Moral Minority

Turns out that 49% of people believe sometimes water boarding is justified. Further, 57% think it may lead to useful information. That is a CBS News poll. According to Pew, 51% think the CIA methods against enemy combatants were justified, 56% think we gained useful information from doing so, and 42% oppose the Senate releasing its report while 43% support it.
