Wednesday, January 14, 2015 -- Enough Is Enough, Obama In Denial, The Left-Wing Mind

"Enough Is Enough!"

Speaker John Boehner threw down the gauntlet today. In a speech on the House floor closing debate on legislation to stop President Obama's executive amnesty for illegal immigrants, Speaker John Boehner clearly stated what was at stake -- obedience to the Constitution and the rule of law.

During his remarks, Boehner read 22 quotes attesting to the limits of presidential power -- all...

Tuesday, January 13, 2015 -- Carter's Strange World, Coincidence, Is Congress Relevant, Primary Problems

The Strange World Of Jimmy Carter

President Jimmy Carter was a guest on Jon Stewart's The Daily Show Monday night. When Stewart strangely asked him whether the jihadists attacks in Paris were motivated by something other than Islamic extremism, Carter responded by doing what he does best -- he blamed Israel.

"Well," Carter said, "one of the origins for it (the...

Monday, January 12, 2015 -- Paris Sans Obama, Was March Serious, Hypocrisy Award, More Threats

The World Marches Sans Obama

Obama is usually wherever two or more are gathered. This weekend was the exception. Forty world leaders marched at the head of a million Parisians against radical Islamic terror on Sunday. Our country conspicuously had no representative. Not Obama, not Kerry, not Biden. (Isn't this type of event the reason God made vice presidents?)

Democratic strategist...

Friday, January 9, 2015 -- Paris Siege Ends, A Fifth Column, The West's Response, The Left's Surrender

Paris Siege Ends

Two hostage crises in Paris were resolved today. Cherif and Said Kouachi, the two jihadists responsible for Wednesday's slaughter at Charlie Hebdo, seized a hostage and entered a printing plant outside of Paris. They told police that they wanted to die as martyrs. They got their wish.

Not long after the police cornered the Kouachi brothers, a second jihadist...

Thursday, January 8, 2015 -- Muslim Radicalism, Liberal Media Fears, White House Response, Jewish Realignment

How Deep Is Muslim Radicalism?

Many commentators are assuring us this morning that sympathy in the Muslim world for the kind of terror attack that took place in Paris yesterday is incredibly small. But last year a Pew Research survey in Muslim countries found disturbingly...

Wednesday, January 7, 2015 -- Paris Under Siege, Message To The Media, Will GOP Fold Or Fight, Obama's Threats

Paris Under Siege

In the wake of this morning's terrorist attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, Paris looks like a city under siege. Soldiers armed with assault rifles are patrolling streets, subway stations, houses of worship and major tourist attractions like the Eiffel Tower. And with good reason: At the time of this writing, the gunmen still remain at large.

Carol's Mom Goes Home To The Lord

Carol's mom, Jean Hoke, has passed away. She loved the Lord. We know she has gone on to her new home in Heaven, where a place filled with the glory of God, free of anxiety, pain and suffering, has been lovingly prepared for her.

Over her 91 years, Jean was a loving wife and mother. Like so many of the "Greatest Generation," she...

Monday, January 5, 2015 -- Republican Rebellion, Obama's Back, Grubergate Continues, Israel Wiped Off The Map

Republican Rebellion

There is a rebellion brewing in the House Republican ranks -- a "mini-mutiny" as one columnist put it -- against Speaker John Boehner. Two strong conservatives, Reps. Louie Gohmert of Texas and Ted Yoho of Florida, are putting their names forward as candidates for speaker of the House.

Dislodging Boehner will be challenging. Republicans made historic gains...

Grimm Gone

Late yesterday evening, Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) announced that he would resign from Congress effective January 5th -- one day before the new Congress formally meets. Grimm's resignation was necessitated by last week's guilty plea on charges of tax evasion, which could send him to jail for three years.

First elected in 2010, Grimm has been dogged by allegations of campaign finance violations since...

GQ's Left-wing Bias

The end of the year always brings lists of some kind. Lists of celebrities who passed away. Lists of new breakthroughs and products. Lists of new laws taking effect. The biggest blockbuster movies and most popular songs. We can thank GQ for providing this year's list of the 20...
