At least the Pope understands the grave nature of the crisis and understands the need for concrete action not talk!
As he does in so much else Obama continues to dither on what to do about the unfolding genocide in Iraq. His confused policy of limited air strikes, which even his own Pentagon spokesman admits won’t stop ISIS is an embarrassment.
By contrast Pope Francis speaks with absolute clarity. In a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon concludes:
The violent attacks that are sweeping across Northern Iraq cannot but awaken the consciences of all men and women of goodwill to concrete acts of solidarity by protecting those affected or threatened by violence and assuring the necessary and urgent assistance for the many displaced people → Read More
This is somewhat off the beaten path of the news that is garnering more attention, but it is more than newsworthy. Every once in a while, it helps to insert a dose of reality into the rhetoric that we hear every day. Such is the case with what some people call the Obama economy. Mr. “I won the election” President likes to tout his economic achievements, telling us constantly how the economy has recovered. Of course, that only started taking place after he finally ran out of excuses to blame President Bush. At any rate, he has no problems reminding us of the recovery we are in. Trouble is, the reality tells us Obama’s economic recovery isn’t so much of a recovery. Even President Obama’s → Read More
I know this isn’t a popular view to hold in today’s America, but it seems to me religion is under an ever-increasing pressure and attack in America. Specifically, Christians are under attack. I know some atheists will deny that statement, but I believe it can be upheld by looking at the facts. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is running rampant with the lawsuits it is filing. Not necessarily in this order or in order of importance, the FFRF has decided the IRS hasn’t been doing its due diligence when it comes to policing churches. They also have decided that a discount being offered at Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem, NC was violating someone’s civil rights. You see, the diner gave everyone who prayed over → Read More
There will always be questions that beg to be pondered. We could start with two that are similar in comparison. Why does President Obama not make the small effort it would take to use his influence with the Mexican government to free U.S. Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi, who has been sitting in a Mexican jail for almost five months. His plight seems to be on the ignore list for the Obama administration. Nary a word from a President who bragged that we did not leave our people behind when he was espousing the virtues of trading five Taliban prisoners for Bowe Bergdahl. The man is likely a deserter from the United States Army, but President Obama moved a lot of hell and high water to → Read More
He made this mess by pulling all U.S. troops out. He needs to clean it up! Dismissing seriousness of the ISIS threat Obama in January said: “If a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.” Some jayvee team hunh?
In his Nobel Prize winning six volume memoir of the Second World War, Winston Churchill described the advantages and strengths that were tossed away by the West in a vain hope to preserve peace. Instead they got a war that was beyond any horror they might have imagined:
Here is a line of milestones to disaster. Here is a catalogue of surrenders, at first when all was easy and later when things were harder, to the ever-growing German power. But now → Read More
I know many of the people who may read this post are already fans of Trey Gowdy. He a Republican member of the House of Representatives and he has been charged with leading the investigation into what really happened in Benghazi. To put him in a nutshell, he is a former prosecutor and it shows when he sets his sights on a witness during questioning. He’s like a pit bull, with no give in him until he gets the truth from the poor soul who happens to be under his gun. No quibbling or waffling, just a single-minded purpose to get to the truth.
I came across this at Angry White Dude, who is fond of asking his readers to “fire away, inquiring minds want → Read More
Until that changes there will be no peace in Palestine!
So far, the 72 hour cease fire between the Israelis and Hamas seems to beholding. Unlike prior cease fires that Hamas violated almost immediately. Perhaps Hamas has finally had enough, though I doubt it. Israel traded land for peace and ended it’s occupation of Gaza years ago (yet you won’t hear the handwringers on the left acknowledge that fact). Instead of peace, they got a never ending rain of rockets.
Hours before the ceasefire took effect Hamas soldiers were still at it. Here, a rare video from Indian television shows a Hamas fighter setting up and firing a rocket from a residential and hotel district in Gaza putting civilians at risk:

This shouldn’t come as any kind of major surprise to anyone who has paid attention, but former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news. He is really making a splash with an op-ed he coauthored, in which he pushes for our government to formally recognize the terrorist organization, Hamas, as a legitimate political actor. Aren’t you glad this man isn’t in charge of our foreign policy right now? Although, what our current leadership is sadly lacking.
Does anyone really take Jimmy Carter seriously anymore? The idea that he can be so obscenely incorrect in his assessment of the situation in the Middle East gives us a major clue as to why his presidency was such a colossal failure.

Would you care to venture a guess about what I find so interesting, possibly even humorous, about the conversation that is constantly going on between liberals and conservatives? While you are pondering that question, I’ll give you a hint. Facts are strange things. They usually pop up on the radar when you least expect them and sometimes, when you least need them to appear. Especially if your side of the conversation is used to playing fast and loose with the facts that supposedly support your argument. Facts are apt to rise up and slap you down, making you and your argument look foolish and inept. If we could only get some of these facts into the light of day, it is entirely possible the American → Read More
It has long been said that liberalism is a form of mental illness. I would tend to agree. How else can you explain the willful abandonment of logic that seems to inflict most liberals? Everywhere you look, it almost always goes hand in hand with liberals and their twisted way of thinking. It is even attached to people you may not realize. In his latest installment of Firewall, Bill Whittle gives a great example of how he used to be inflicted with mental illness. He explains that period of his life and how he too suffered from the willful abandonment of logical thinking. I think you’ll enjoy what he has to say.

Make no mistake, I am proud to be an American. I will apologize for that to no one. I am glad I was born here, in the best, the freest, the safest country in the world. We have been involved in conflicts throughout our history, but there has always been one overriding factor that has always kept us safe. Looking back on our history, I am certain mistakes were made. There were probably conflicts in which we were involved that we should have stayed out of. But no one dared strike us on our homeland, for fear of the terrible reprisal that would surely follow. I call it the big stick philosophy of fear and respect. We have had the strongest and most far-reaching military → Read More
Have you ever attended Vacation Bible School? Around here, we call it VBS and it is the time of the year, usually during summer vacation from school, that children gather at a local, or not so much, school to learn about the Bible and the principles it teaches. In the case of the VBS put on by our church, it is some children’s only opportunity to attend an event that is both educational and uplifting. Not to mention, a lot of fun.
During the week, representatives of the local police and fire departments, as well as the local paramedics. It depends on the theme of the VBS. For instance, the theme at our local VBS this year was God’s Garage. The children have a lot → Read More
