Monday, January 26, 2015 -- Protocol, 21st Century Paul Revere, GOP Campaign Begins, Remembering Churchill

Protocol?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues to get pummeled in Israeli and American media for accepting Speaker John Boehner's invitation to address a joint session of Congress. What is the prime minister supposed to do? Congress has been overwhelmingly supportive of Israel, whereas Obama has been increasingly hostile.

The core argument the Obama White House is making...

"A Global Joke"

You might think that is a comment about Barack Obama's foreign policy, but it is actually a statement about our immigration policy. There are disturbing reports from Capitol Hill that the so-called border security bill currently being drafted by the House Homeland Security Committee represents a step backwards.

First, The Daily Caller reported that the bill unbelievably...

Defending Life

Hundreds of thousands of Americans came to Washington, D.C., today for the annual March for Life. The march marks a tragic anniversary in America -- the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision legalizing most abortions nationally. Since that ruling 42 years ago, more than 57 million innocent lives have been sacrificed in the name choice.

Our nation was...

Wednesday, January 21, 2015 -- Out Of Touch, Tehran's Talking Points, Beards And Abortions

Out Of Touch

Last night's State of the Union address was vintage President Obama. He sprinkled references to bi-partisanship, cooperation and working together throughout his hour-long speech. And he insisted that he would offer "practical, not partisan ideas."

Yet by the time Obama finished, he had set a record for the number of veto threats issued in a State of the Union address. Obama made...

Tuesday, January 20, 2015 -- Obama Plays Robin Hood, Militant Islam Marches On, Israel On Alert

Obama Plays Robin Hood

President Obama will deliver his annual State of the Union address tonight. He is expected to present a wish list of new tax hikes and spending increases.

Virtually none of it is expected to pass the Republican Congress, but that's really not the point. Obama's speech is more about politics than policy, setting the stage for the 2016 presidential campaign.

Several...

Monday, January 19, 2015 -- Remembering Dr. King, Supremes To Define Marriage, Hollywood Haters

Remembering Dr. King

Today is a federal holiday honoring the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. President Obama is encouraging Americans to observe the day by performing acts of community service. I would like to add to that suggestion: Let's honor the man by remembering his cause and what inspired him.

I encourage you to read King's...

You've Got. . . To Be Kidding Me

The Obama Administration is still reeling from criticism over its failure to march in Paris with other world leaders in the aftermath of the jihadist attacks. Today, Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Paris with singer James Taylor in tow. Taylor serenaded his French audience with one of his 1970s hits, "You've Got A Friend." Get it? This...

Stand With Israel

Congratulations to Pastor John Hagee and Christians United for Israel! Last week, CUFI announced that its membership has swelled to more than two million people. That is incredible for a group that is not even ten years old.

I am honored to be a member of CUFI's Executive Board, and I whole-heartedly support its unyielding work in defense of the Jewish state. CUFI and I have some...

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...
