Wednesday, December 23, 2015 -- Graham's Call To Arms

Graham's Call To Arms

An extraordinary statement was issued yesterday by a renowned leader of Christian evangelicals, Reverend Franklin Graham. His statement should be considered as a thunderclap to the Republican Party.

The GOP is already at loggerheads with its more populist economic supporters in the Tea Party, which we have chronicled in this report for the last several years. It has been unable to recreate the kind of message that...

Tuesday, December 22, 2015 -- Obama Appeases The Ayatollah Again, What's Wrong With Washington

Obama Appeases The Ayatollah, Again

During negotiations over the Iranian nuclear deal, the Obama Administration did whatever was necessary to appease the ayatollah's demands. Many on the left hoped that by negotiating with Iran, the regime might moderate its anti-Western attitudes, curb its belligerence and open up to world trade.

Instead, Iran has...

Hillary's Trouble With The Truth

There was a Democrat debate over the weekend. Did you notice? Many pundits commented on the fact that the timing of the debate -- competing with the newest Star Wars movie and the last weekend of Christmas shopping -- seemed designed to keep viewership low and to protect Hillary Clinton's status as the Democrat front runner. Not surprisingly, Saturday...

A Tale Of Two Elementary Schools

W.R. Castle Elementary School in Wittensville, Kentucky, was set to host a performance of that classic holiday special "A Charlie Brown Christmas." Unfortunately, political correctness kicked in and school officials decided to censor Linus.

Thursday, December 17, 2015 -- Another Bad Deal, What's Wrong At Wheaton, Obama's Failure

Another Bad Deal

A budget deal has been reached in Washington. It is a mammoth bill, at least 2,000 pages long. I am sad to report that I don't see what our side got out of it.

It is pretty clear, however, what Obama, Pelosi and Reid got. I won't ruin your Christmas by going through all the gory details, but I'll just mention two.

Planned Parenthood gets full funding. So, too, does...

Wednesday, December 16, 2015 -- Debate Recap, The New "Gotcha" Question, Keep God First

Debate Recap

Last night's GOP presidential debate certainly featured its share of arguments and insults, and the occasional good discussion of policy. But, ultimately, I did not see any clear winners or losers.

Three candidates appear positioned to go the distance -- Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. It is easy to see how any of them could become the party's nominee.

Dr. Ben Carson...

Tuesday, December 15, 2015 -- Trump Raises Eyebrows, Debate Night, Good News

Trump Raises Eyebrows

Donald Trump has raised eyebrows on more than one occasion so far in this campaign. But over the past few days, he has left many conservatives puzzled.

As Senator Ted Cruz has moved up in the polls, Trump, predictably, has gone on the attack. On Fox News Sunday, Trump said, "The way he's dealt with the Senate -- where he goes in frankly like a bit of a maniac -- you never get things...

Obama's Social Media Mishap

No, the president did not accidently tweet an embarrassing photo. Regrettably, this is far more serious.

Over the weekend, the New York Times reported that Tashfeen Malik "...

Terror Fears Rising

There are widely differing polls over whether Donald Trump is going too far with some of his latest remarks about Muslims and terrorism. But what the polls don't disagree on is that the American people are increasingly concerned about the threat we face from radical Islam.

A new CBS News/New York Times poll finds that fears of terrorist attacks are at their highest levels...

Farook's Friend

San Bernardino jihadist Syed Farook used two rifles in his murderous rampage that were purchased by a friend, Enrique Marquez. According to published reports, Marquez is expected to face charges in the ongoing investigation into last week's terrorist attack.

As it turns out, Farook and Marquez are related by marriage, and Marquez told investigators that he and Farook had...
