Obama, Putin And Ukraine

The Obama Administration is attempting to ratchet up the pressure on Russia in response to the Ukrainian crisis. Yesterday the Pentagon announced that it had "put on hold all military-to-military engagements between the United States and Russia." Russian agricultural officials have been blocked from attending a trade meeting in Washington.

A $1 billion emergency loan package was announced this morning, and Secretary of State John Kerry is in...

Ukraine & The U.S.

Our community organizer-in-chief is once again confronted by the harsh realities of the world. Over the weekend, Russian troops invaded the Crimean Peninsula, a critically important region of Ukraine. Obama's response has been flailing. Already we are seeing hints that he will deploy his usual strategy, which is to drag out a straw man.

Whenever the left gets in a bind for promoting failed policy, it goes on the attack, accusing conservatives of having...

The Ninth Circus Strikes Again

Yesterday the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued yet another ruling likely to cause the blood pressure of patriotic Americans to skyrocket. In this case, the court ruled that officials at Live Oak High School, in a San Jose suburb, were justified in ordering students to take off or turn inside out their American flag t-shirts in order to avoid racial violence.

Why would American flag shirts prompt violence? Hispanic students at the school...

Brewer Picked The Pigskin

Sadly, as was widely predicted, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer yesterday vetoed SB 1062. Responding to her veto, Todd Starnes of Fox News tweeted, "Protect the Super Bowl or religious liberty? Brewer chose the pigskin."

Worse than the veto was that the left was allowed to frame the debate. Legislation intended to preserve religious liberty was cast by most news outlets as an effort to restore Jim Crow laws, which prevented black...

Gay Rights vs. Religious Liberty

Arizona is ground zero in the latest culture clash. Governor Jan Brewer is under enormous pressure to veto a bill (SB 1062) that strengthens religious liberty protections for individuals.

The state legislature passed a bill intended to protect religious business owners from being forced to conduct business in any way that violates their religious beliefs. Eighteen states have laws preventing the government from substantially burdening an...

Obama's Obsession -- I

Almost every day when you pick up the newspaper or turn on the TV, it seems there is some new way that the Obama Administration is promoting the radical homosexual public policy agenda. The issue is its obsession.

Today's Washington Post has a lengthy story about Uganda's new law criminalizing homosexual behavior. The headline reads: "Ugandan President Defies U.S., Signs Anti-Gay Bill." The subtitle warns: "Western...

Obama Proposes Big Budget Cuts!

There was great applause today when the Obama Administration announced big budget cuts. Of course, those cuts are aimed at reducing the Army to its lowest levels since before World War II. According to one report, the plan from Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel "takes into account the fiscal reality of government austerity."

Last week we were getting an entirely different message from the Obama White House. Thursday the Washington...

You Read It Here First!

If you've been watching Fox News in the past day or so, then you know about the latest controversy involving the Obama Administration's efforts to silence its critics by using the Federal Communications Commission to go after the news media.

We reported on this outrageous assault on the First Amendment last week. Thankfully, Fox News is now giving the issue...

Whoops, He Did It Again

Barack Obama learned nothing from his rhetorical missteps regarding intervention in Syria. No doubt you recall his infamous "red line" remark from August 2012. "We have been very clear to the Assad regime … that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized," he said.

But after chemical weapons were used a year later, Obama backtracked and denied he ever drew a red...

Faith Under Fire

News about religious persecution abroad and threats to religious liberty here at home increasingly are part of this daily report. That fact is a sad testament to the times in which we live. But it is important for men and women of faith to understand the danger.

During a recent interview with CNSNews.com, Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia issued a stark warning about the growing danger to religious liberty in America. Here are some...
