Death Drinks Tea at the White House

Friday, October 2nd, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Thank God my mother isn’t pro-abortion; otherwise I might not be here. “You’re almost 37,” the doctor told her, “are you sure you want to start all over again?” When that line of thinking comes from a woman who declares she never wants kids, it’s selfish. When it comes from a medical professional, it’s crass. […]

“She admitted in court to having sexual contact in 2009 with two boys who were age 10 and 12 at the time, Smith-Norton said.

Is HuffPo Suggesting That More Sexual Assaults Against Men Would Balance the Scales?

Monday, August 31st, 2015 - by Michael T. Hamilton

Last Wednesday was “Women’s Equality Day,” but not all cries of gender discrimination are created equal. In her article commemorating the special day (“7 Things To Know If You Think Women Are Equal To Men”), Huffington Post Deputy Editor Nina Bahadur wrote: According to the CDC, an estimated 1 in 5 women in the United […]

10 Jobs More Dangerous Than Cop: Does That Matter?

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

The above meme caught my eye on social media, posted to the Facebook page of an outfit calling itself Police the Police. The implication is that police officers should not be granted sympathy or any benefit of doubt on account of the dangers they face in the conduct of their duties. After all, the Bureau […]

Cop Teaches Peers to Deal with Autistic Suspects

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

As a father to a son on the autism spectrum, I learned early on that traditional forms of discipline don’t always have the desired effect. A child with autism does not respond in expected ways. The ways in which they do respond can seem like defiant tantrums. When the confrontation takes place between parent and […]

Secular Media Could Not Ignore Charleston’s Powerful Expression of Christianity This Week

Sunday, June 21st, 2015 - by David Forsmark

This year’s Juneteenth would have been the saddest in recent memory, if not for the most remarkable example of Christian witness in this generation. Dylann Storm Roof’s stated aim was to divide the nation, but despite the best efforts of Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton, he was unable to do so. Largely thanks to the victims’ […]

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015 - by James Jay Carafano

You thought the Chinese are bad actors online?   Now comes news the FBI are investigating the St. Louis Cardinals for hacking into the computer system of the Houston Astros.  If the allegations are proved true, this is a big deal.  Hacking is not just another case of baseball hijinks. It is serious criminal activity. Bad baseball behavior online is […]

Duggar Girls’ Pain Makes for Great Spin-Off PR

Monday, June 8th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Why hasn’t TLC officially cancelled the Duggars? Ask Jill and Jessa, the daughters who are going through “immeasurable pain” presumably because they have to re-live the humiliating experience of being fondled by their brother when they were pre-teens. They’re so humiliated that they booked an exclusive with Fox News to air their shame before an […]

Media Greed Causing Immeasurable Pain to Duggar Daughters

Friday, June 5th, 2015 - by Jamie Wilson

When I read about Josh Duggar’s —  I can hardly say it even now — molestation of his sisters and another young girl, I was just as appalled and shocked as anyone else might be. ‘House of Horrors!‘ screeched the In Touch headline. Other media outlets followed suit: Salon with ’Fox News’ Freak Show Heroes’…columnist Clarence Page with […]

Friendly Fire: When Christian General Prays, All Hell Breaks Loose

Thursday, June 4th, 2015 - by Michael T. Hamilton

A two-star Air Force general drew heavy fire for mentioning Christ at a National Day of Prayer event on May 7, when the shrewdly named Military Religious Freedom Foundation called for “Major General Craig S. Olson [to] be immediately, aggressively and very visibly brought to justice for his unforgivable crimes and transgressions via trial by […]

Here’s Why Blacks Aren’t Voting Republican

Thursday, April 16th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

Black Americans vote for Democrats 95% of the time. Republicans frequently argue that blacks should recognize the historic role which the Republican Party played in ending slavery, defeating Jim Crow, and fighting for civil rights. Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly demonstrates in the above clip why that narrative doesn’t connect with blacks. People care more about […]

Friday, April 3rd, 2015 - by Rhonda Robinson

Pervi Patel, an Indiana woman, was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison for not having a proper abortion. According to the Chicago Tribune Patel opted for the convenience of abortifacient drugs from China, rather than seeking the assistance of a doctor. When the infant was born premature and still alive, the new mother left […]

Are You Smarter Than the Average Psychopath?

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015 - by Audie Cockings

The psychopath is the most fascinating of killers, inordinate individuals free from penitence, heedless to consequence: Jeffrey Dahmer and his English equivalent Dennis Nilson, Ted Bundy, the “Green River Killer,” the “Acid Bath Murderer,”… Barbosa… and of course Pedro Alonso Lopez, having the highest body count of the bunch, 300. As a young girl, I […]

Thursday, March 12th, 2015 - by Aaron C. Smith

See Frank J. Fleming opening the discussion: “This Is Today’s Question: What Does It Mean To Be ‘Civilized’?” And Mark Ellis: “The Future of Civilized Society: One World“ Most people use the word “civilization” as a sign of progress, something to which we should aspire. We’ve slowly worked our way out of the muck, pulling ourselves […]

How the Western Intelligentsia Denies Islam’s History of War and Crime

Saturday, February 28th, 2015 - by Robert Spencer

The Western intelligentsia is very, very anxious to make sure that you have a positive view of Islam. Thus we see a steady stream of articles in the mainstream media assuring you that the Qur’an is benign, the U.S. Constitution is Sharia-compliant, and the Islamic State is not Islamic. These articles come in a steady […]

What is the Future of Assassination? Meet Rico, A Genetically-Enhanced Hitman

Thursday, February 26th, 2015 - by Liberty Island

Killing is ugly. A living body is designed to survive; killing opposes its entire purpose. Nothing dies in an artful manner — a body is just damaged until it fails to sustain itself anymore. Put enough holes in something, and it will eventually stop moving, stop functioning. And often a living creature’s last moments are […]
