The President of the United States is in many ways like the CEO of Uncle Sam, Inc., the world' biggest corporation. As such, he, like all other top executives and presidents before him, sets corporate culture.3 comments
Most of the historic imbroglios have involved sexual affairs or money. The Nixon-era transgressions, however, took a more sinister turn, that of attempting to manipulate government agencies to silence opponents, and chilling the press in its attempts to investigate and report. Now it seems the unfolding of the reportedly scandalous layers of the Obama regime may be every bit as extensive.14 comments
There is nothing new under the sun, wrote Solomon after squeezing out all the novelty in living that he could. The alleged Obama Administration scandals prove it.13 comments
The New Majority tsunami will demolish everything that stands in its path – including the Republican Party establishment and all others who hunker down in denial.42 comments
It was another Monday morning, and Howard Phillips – who died April 20 – sat at my White House desk once more, his eyes afire with the inferno of a Hebrew prophet.8 comments
"To what does one assimilate in modern America?" That question was posed by Nathan Glazer and Daniel Patrick Moynihan in their 1963 book, Beyond the Melting Pot. It still is the most important but most neglected issue in the immigration policy debate.8 comments
The USS Traditional Marriage has sailed. So reports emergent-evangelical leader Rob Bell, who has recently signed on with the USS Same-Sex Marriage.
"Love wins" – but does it always? Are there situations when "love" might even cause people to "lose"? Will the Supreme Court become the grand arbiter of what love is even as it became the definer of what a human life is and when it begins? As the Supremes deliberate on the nature of marriage, will they be the new Moses descending the mountain with freshly chiseled tablets of revised law to be universal in defining marriage?10 comments
The "Robsy twins" have become the latest advocates of same-sex marriage. One of these ideological mates is Rob Bell, a communicator with admirable skills. The other Robsy twin is Senator Rob Portman, Ohio Republican, friend of small businesses, crusader against unfunded government mandates, would-be IRS reformer, and supporter of the Defense of Marriage Act. Until recently – on the marriage issue, at least.136 comments
In keeping with the heritage passed down through my grandmother, Belle O'Brien, and her daughter, my mother, who airbrushed me to sleep with the gentle tones of Celtic lullaby, and all the Hanleys and O'Hanley's of County Roscommon, and the McGaheys of the Northern Counties, I must pause to speak of things Irish.5 comments
The Henley Theorem: The absence of law begets law, and law always sires more law. Colorado is now proving the case, as will Washington State, whose legislatures are busy trying to figure out how to regulate what has been deregulated, namely recreational use of marijuana.26 comments
Senator Rubio departed from the script. That's simply not done. Speaking of unscripted moments at lofty tables brings to mind Dr. Ben Carson's "uh-oh" speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington ten days before. He blasted political correctness in front of the nation's sternest protectors of the socio-cultural script.10 comments
The scrubby, pock-faced island once was an asylum for the insane. In another era, lepers tried to hack out survival on the gritty land 12 miles off Cape Town's coast. Then Robben Island became a prison, the "Alcatraz" of South Africa some would call it. Nelson Mandela may not have used that label, though he spent 18 of his 27-year incarceration there.3 comments
His voice is raspy as a film noir mob boss, its message erudite as a polished scholar, and dynamism zesty as one of those TV product-pitchers who can persuade you to dial immediately for a combination carrot-dicer and log-splitter.
The lack of honesty following glaring humiliation brought on by dizzying hubris destroyed a President of the United States.2 comments
