This afternoon the United States Senate effectively blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act, a liberal initiative that would narrow the "fictional" pay gap between men and women.
The Paycheck Fairness Act should be called out for what it is-a sham. Liberals continue to perpetuate their so-called "War on Women" by creating issues out of nonexistent problems. In fact, young, single women in urban areas throughout the United States are actually outpacing and outperforming their male counterparts. This Paycheck Fairness Act is legislation that only seeks to objectify and victimize women, something that the Left is notorious for.
Liberals are obsessed with gender disparity, but yet they are the ones objectifying women through these legislative initiatives that don't actually seek to empower women. more >>
For former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, supporting marriage must feel like an awfully lonely position. But according to a new Rasmussen Poll, it's anything but. In what should be an eye-opening survey that the media will go out of its way to ignore, the survey house announced a flat-out tie between Americans who back same-sex "marriage" and those who don't. Holding almost completely steady from its 2013 numbers, 43 percent of people, when asked "do you favor or oppose gay marriage," said they supported, compared to another 43 percent who opposed. The debate, which the media pronounced dead and buried, has never been more alive!
Meanwhile, sportscasters are being fired from their jobs and brilliant CEOs are chased out of their offices because of their so-called "extreme" views on marriage. Turns out, the only extremists are the ones prematurely ending the conversation! Despite everything the Obama administration, the courts, and the liberal media have thrown at Americans on marriage, the country is a long way from walking away from natural marriage.
And here's the irony: the Left's campaign of intimidation and totalitarianism isn't exactly persuading the other half to join them. If anything, the public shaming of people like Craig James, Brendan Eich, Dr. Angela McCaskill, and others may be having the opposite effect. Even reliable liberals are outraged and disgusted by the "gay McCarthyism" sweeping the nation. Obviously, the media is desperately trying to make conservatives feel that same-sex "marriage" is inevitable, and that everyone but you thinks it's okay. Trust me, you're far from alone in your support for natural marriage. more >>
I was recently involved in an interesting exercise-examining taqiyya about taqiyya-and believe readers might profit from the same exercise, as it exposes all the subtle apologetics made in defense of the Islamic doctrine, which permits Muslims to lie to non-Muslims, or "infidels."
Context: Khurrum Awan, a lawyer, is suing Ezra Levant, a Canadian media personality and author, for defamation and $100,000. Back in 2009 and on his own website, Levant had accused Awan of taqiyya in the context of Awan's and the Canadian Islamic Congress' earlier attempts to sue Mark Steyn.

There is no doubt that there is real suffering among the Palestinians living in Gaza and the West Bank (which is actually ancient Judea and Samaria). The question is who, precisely, is most responsible for their suffering?
Certainly, Israel is far from blameless in its treatment of the Palestinians, and it helps no one when we overlook or whitewash Israel's failings, as some Christian Zionists are prone to do.
But is Israel primarily responsible for the difficult living conditions faced by the Palestinians today? more >>
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for failing to testify about the IRS scandal involving the targeting of conservative, pro-life and evangelical groups.
The vote, 21 to 12, was along party lines. The contempt charge will next go to the full House for a vote.
"Our investigation has found that former IRS Exempt Organizations division Director Lois Lerner played a central role in the targeting scandal and then failed to meet her legal obligations to answer questions after she waived her right not to testify. In demanding answers and holding a powerful government official accountable for her failure to meet her legal obligations, this Committee did its job. If the House takes up and passes the resolution, the matter will be referred to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, which statute requires he take to a grand jury," Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said. more >>
A well-known conservative blogger and journalist has described U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister as the "sleaziest politician in Louisiana" after a security video, released Monday, showed the married congressman locking lips with one of his former female staffers, who is also married.
In a post titled "Vance McAllister, Homewrecker," conservative writer Rod Dreher states, "This guy, my Congressman, for whom I voted, blaming the liberals for everything, exploiting his wife and children to get himself elected, then running off and having an affair with his friend's wife. Thanks, Dad, you're a prince. Vance McAllister has got to be the sleaziest politician in Louisiana, and brother, that's saying something."
Dreher, former conservative editorial writer and columnist for The Dallas Morning News, elaborated to The Christian Post that his reaction was strong given that McAllister (R-La.) had touted himself as a family man. more >>
