On April 24, 2012, President Obama went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to make his case for student-loan forgiveness and college affordability. After slow-jamming the news, Obama pointed to a surprisingly traditional justification for helping young people reduce their student loan debt: It was causing them to delay marriage.
This moment encapsulates the overlooked underpinning of President Obama's economic message: his focus on family. It is an approach fit for our times, as families in America face extraordinary pressures, obstacles and burdens. Both parties would be wise to emulate this in the upcoming midterm elections. more >>
Eric Holder has resigned, ending the reign of the most racially divisive and political Attorney General in modern history.
Now he can do ceremonial things like attend baseball games. The Washington Nationals might ask him to attend the first game of the year; he can go to the pitcher's mound and throw out the Second Amendment.
Like Obama, Holder came into office with a racial score to settle, even though they were both products of affirmative action. They see race in everything. One cannot sort laundry nor have one's teeth whitened without the two calling it "racist." more >>
Adolf Hitler said, "the great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one."
President Obama, Hillary Clinton, David Petraeus, the CIA, among others, provided weapons and billions of dollars to Islamists who are beheading Americans, systematically committing genocide against Christians, and destroying the democratic gains once achieved in Iraq. more >>
Academic leftists are so used to talking to themselves (and their under-educated students), that they long ago passed the point of even realizing their own ignorance. They delight in their own arguments and their ability to make students "shift uncomfortably in their seats," yet succeed only in singing to their own condescending choir, with the music published in their house hymnal, the New York Times.
And nowhere is that reality more apparent than when they discuss the Christian faith.
The latest example comes from a University of Washington psychology professor named David Barash, writing a piece called God, Darwin and My College Biology Class. In it, he boasts about "The Talk" (yes, he capitalized it) that he gives his young charges, a talk that purports to demonstrate the following: more >>
Despite praise from U.S. officials about recent airstrikes targeting Islamic militant group ISIS in Syria, a member of the terror group is taunting the U.S.-led coalition by describing the strikes as a failure.
"We've been ready for this for some time," said the Syrian ISIS fighter who spoke with CNN under the pseudonym Abu Talha. "We know that our bases are known because they're tracking us with radars and satellites, so we had backup locations."
Over the past week the U.S.-led coalition has launched strikes against ISIS targets such as mobile oil refineries and vehicles, according to CNN. But the 28-year-old ISIS fighter said those attacks will not stop ISIS. more >>
No one grows up with aspirations of government dependency. Social issues give Conservatives the perfect opportunity to prove they're the big brothers to Americans and not the bullies. Can you imagine what America might look like today if the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, had not taken on the social issues of his day, slavery and polygamy?
Imagine being the parents of Sandra Fluke as you observe your child beg for subsidized condoms on national television during the 2012 DNC. How disappointing. No father tells his son "work hard, go to college and get on food stamps as soon as possible." No little girl wearing a princess dress and a blinged out plastic tiara dreams of marrying her prince charming then aborting her firstborn. Leftist are transforming our men into boys, our women into usable goods, and their favorite targets are minorities.
According to BlackGenocide.org, 78 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority communities. Who's going to fight against the existential threat that's being perpetrated against my people due to the Left's social policies? Republicans used to be the definitive answer. more >>
