BP Makes Largest Political Contribution in U.S. History

Posted: 26 Jun 2010 01:00 AM PDT

Ryan Lees Amidst all the mistakes, misspeaks and obvious mechanical malfunctions, BP's next move is to contribute $20 billion to an escrow account to pay out claims in the Gulf region. This sounds like humanitarianism and accountability, but there is something more sinister here. This is corruption. This is government domination of private business and this is political fundraising. The account will be wholly controlled by the federal government. Kenneth Feinberg, the Obama...

Fanning the Flames of Feminism

Posted: 26 Jun 2010 12:58 AM PDT

Rich Tucker Here's something you don't hear from a conservative every day: I'm a feminist. Wait -- don't go scrambling for the emergency exit just yet. This doesn't mean I'm joining NOW. But, having recently welcomed a daughter into the world, I want nothing but the best for her. Of course, what's good for an individual woman isn't necessarily going to be good for women in general. But, by definition, a "feminist" should support policies that benefit women in to… ...

Obama Courts Latinos by Suing Arizona

Posted: 26 Jun 2010 12:56 AM PDT

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann Why is President Obama suing to invalidate the Arizona law on illegal immigration? Why is he incurring the enmity of even his own Democratic congressmen from the Phoenix and Tucson areas by trying to kill a law that two-thirds of Arizona and a similar proportion of America as a whole supports? The answer: It is a desperate, last-ditch attempt to rebuild his sagging popularity with America's Hispanic voters. Furious at Obama for failing to keep his...

Kupelian’s ‘How Evil Works’ Shines Bright

Posted: 25 Jun 2010 08:27 PM PDT

By J. Matt Barber I'm a tremendous fan of author and Christian apologist C.S. Lewis. Rarely does one find a writer who can elucidate so profoundly, as could he, the stark contrast between secular humanism – "materialism" as Lewis called it – and the Judeo-Christian worldview. Seldom does one come across a wordsmith capable of so effectively, objectively and concisely distinguishing between good and evil. I've found that wordsmith. My wife Sarah and I were listen… ...

Another Failed President?

Posted: 25 Jun 2010 07:34 PM PDT

Pat Buchanan In Year One of the Reagan Revolution, in which he was a shining star, Budget Director David Stockman told reporter William Greider: "Kemp-Roth (President Reagan's 1981 tax cut) was always a Trojan horse to bring down the top rate. ... It's kind of hard to sell 'trickle down.' So the supply-side formula was the only way to get a tax policy that was really 'trickle down.' Supply-side is 'trickle-down' theory." An astounding admission. The president's principal salesman of tax...

Marriage Petition Case Was Not a Defeat for Traditional Marriage

Posted: 25 Jun 2010 07:32 PM PDT

Ken Klukowski Today the Supreme Court dealt a setback to supporters of traditional marriage. But it's not the defeat that gay-rights supporters (and many of their fans on the media) are hailing it as, and leaves open the possibility that traditional-marriage supporters may be the ones celebrating at the end. Washington State passed a law providing many of the benefits of marriage to gay couples. Groups sought to get enough signatures to put the issue on the ballot, so that the voters...

A Truly Obaman Command

Posted: 25 Jun 2010 07:29 PM PDT

Scott Wheeler and Buckley Carlson Of the many interesting narratives swirling around the Obama/McChrystal saga, the least explored to date – less than 24 hours in – are these vaguely subtle, dual messages put forth by Democrats and their not-so-silent brethren in the mainstream media: 1) President Obama's swift dismissal of General McChrystal demonstrates his solid command of the military, his decisive nature, and his commitment to success in Afghanistan; and 2) that McChrystal is just one...

Is the Welfare State a Ponzi Scheme?

Posted: 25 Jun 2010 07:28 PM PDT

Howard Rich Ponzi schemes rely on people falling for promises that are literally too good to be true – but the outcomes are never really in doubt for the perpetrators of these scams, are they? First they are playing with money that does not belong to them – which means they cannot lose. Also, when the scams finally unravel, the perpetrators have invariably moved on to their next group of unsuspecting victims –where the fleecing begins anew. Sound familiar? It should. This is the modus...

Sleep Walking in America: quisnam mos excito populus

Posted: 25 Jun 2010 06:20 PM PDT

Rev Michael Bresciani As if America has fallen into a condition of protracted somnambulism, most public officials along with the summarily distracted citizens of our nation seem bent on plunging headlong to their own demise: but why? We're not yet the walking dead but we may be close to a nation of sleep walking dullards who need to wake up before we lose everything. Not a day passes when someone does not read my article entitled, Prophecy 2010 – America Approaches the Fork in the Road...

The Spiritual and the Secular

Posted: 25 Jun 2010 04:58 PM PDT

Today's discussion is coming from a biblicaly based perspective. I realize I have readers whom are not Christian. That's fine. But I think you will be able to follow my reasoning here, even if you are unfamiliar with some basic Christian teachings. I believe my conclusions will be applicable even if you are an unbeliever. We now live in a time and country where most Christians are offered so many variables on Christian practice, how can they…

Some Words from An American Patriot: Daniel Webster

Posted: 25 Jun 2010 09:27 AM PDT

As we approach another July 4th, patriotic Americans should be mourning over the travestity of justice that now occupies the White House. We were betrayed in November 2008 as a free people, not only by the Democrats (whose core values are socialism) but by the Republican leadership as well. Consider well, my friends, the words of a great American patriot from the past, and ponder the implications of what he wrote for America today: …

Are We Missing McCrystal's Point?
