Benghazi Report: We've Been Lied To

Now that the truth has finally surfaced by way of the January 15, 2014 Senate Intelligence Committee report, we see that al-Qaeda affiliated networks were indeed responsible for the September 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya. The finding stands in stark contrast to the yarns fed to us by President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the administration at large, suggesting a video, not al Qaeda, inspired those attacks.

Free Speech, Duck Hunting and Double-Standards

Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson's interview with GQ magazine sparked an all-out assault on him, his family and of course, Christianity. This overreaction underscores the double standard of those who applaud free speech, as long as they approved the message.

Climate Change and Environmental Socialism

As world leaders at the UN Climate Summit reached an agreement to tighten the shackles of oppressive global warming regulations late November, God laughed, and the moisture from his breath touched the earth, painting the place where the Christmas story began, the Holy Land, white with snow December 13. The same day, the Arab Spring region witnessed an Arab winter, when dusty desert streets were dusted with the first snowfall in 112 years. And last week, Australia's summer landscape became a winter wonderland.

The Misery of the Liberal Mind

The liberal mind, writes Dr. Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr. in his book, The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness, views the world through the prism of "pity, sorrow, neediness, misfortune, poverty, suspicion, mistrust, anger, exploitation, discrimination, victimization, alienation and injustice" for people who are "poor, weak, sick, wronged, cheated, oppressed, disenfranchised and exploited."

The Liberal Version of the Hunger Games

Welcome to the Liberals' version of the Hunger Games, America; unapologetically brought to you by our Progressive friends in the Democrat Party, whose economic policies have lifted a record number of Americans from the middle class and plopped them face down -- into poverty the past five years.

An Argument Why Our Nation Should Give Thanks

In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln called a nation divided by war to join together in a time of corporate thanksgiving and repentance when he proclaimed that Americans "set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens."

Obama's Obamacare Fix is Sugar-Coated Manure

Frankly, I'm sick of the dishonesties that gush from President Obama's mouth. Last week, he promised an "administrative fix" for Obamacare, which was nothing more than an attempt to revive his tanking poll numbers, protect at-risk Democrats up for reelection in 2014, and deflect blame to insurance companies.

The Climate is Changing; It's Fall!

This time it's about climate change; you know… that thing that's been happening four times per year since the dawn of creation, with rainy springs, hot summers, dry falls, and cold winters or, sometimes, dry springs, cool summers, wet falls, and warm winters.

Obamacare Could Boomerang on Democrats Reelection Plans

Not every bad thing that happens to us is bad, long term. I've learned it well; some of life's biggest blessings arrive unexpectedly, wrapped in the most unsightly dressings. It's as if the alchemy happens in the waiting. And so it may be for the GOP, as they now get to witness certain Democrats, who supported Obamacare, paying a hefty price for their misdeeds.

Obama and the GOP: The Worst Is Yet To Come

Democrats have only one goal to accomplish between now and the 2014 elections: To paint Republicans as the bad guys. In doing so, they'll win the 2014 elections, gain control of the House of Representatives, and as President Reagan once said, the rest of us will be spending "our sunset years telling our children…what it once was like in America when men were free."

Obama's Uncivil America

The "new era of civility in politics" called for by President Obama after former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) was shot, lasted about five Washington minutes. Since then Obama has adopted a scorched earth public policy in an attempt to destroy his political enemies, but sacrificing the Constitution as collateral damage.

Reasonable People Compromise

Reasonable people compromise - unreasonable people do not. Instead, they trample over those around them to selfishly get their way. And the government is shut down this chilly October day in 2013 because unreasonable Democrats behaving like spoiled children would rather refuse treatment to terminally ill children, ravage the economy, disparage veterans and make the rest of our lives miserable -- than compromise.

ObamaCare and the Arrogance of Liberalism

ObamaCare teaches us that liberals don't believe in true freedom or unalienable rights. Nor do they think we are smart enough to make personal decisions. Instead, they pervert the Constitution and misuse governmental authority to coerce us to do what they say is good for us. And then exempt themselves from their own laws.

Benghazi: Is America Run By Fools?

It seems like only yesterday when President Obama stood in front of an electrified audience at the 2012 Democratic National Convention just days before the deadly September 11, 2012 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, reminding supporters, "al Qaeda is on the path to defeat and Osama bin Laden is dead."

Is Assimilation Possible?

It is reasonably simple to find your way here in America: Follow the rules. Integrate. Drop labels. Assimilate. Be productive. Repeat. Before long, you begin to experience the freedom that comes with being an American.

Where Was God During the Boston Marathon?

As the F.B.I. and Department of Homeland Security sift through the collateral damage in Boston, one thing is abundantly clear: it was an act of terrorism. Questions, like who is responsible and their motivation, remain to be determined. Along with those questions, one cannot help but ask where God is during events like this.
