Restricting Guns to “Officials” Doesn’t Keep Us Safe

A recent murder by an illegal immigrant should make people reconsider, not just immigration enforcement, but the value of restricting guns. From CNN: “Gun used in San Francisco killing belonged to federal agent, source says.” The shooting death of a San Francisco woman had already fueled a fresh round of fierce debate over U.S. immigration policies. Now a new detail in the investigation adds another dimension to the discussion. The gun used in the killing of Kate Steinle belonged to a Read more […]

Anti-Discrimination Laws Don’t Work for Anyone

Statists take choices away from everyone when they create anti-discrimination laws, including the people they claim to want to help. It’s pretty clear Jeffrey Tucker and I have some significant differences, rooted in our understanding of the purpose of life. But he and I have nearly full agreement on his subject matter here at the website of the Foundation for Economic Education in an essay entitled, “Gays Need the Freedom to Associate.” He is right: Anti-discrimination laws are counter-productive Read more […]

New Movie on Dealing with Homosexual Culture

A new movie used secular, pro-homosexual actors to portray a Christian message. Ray Comfort has a new film coming out, and the way he produced and cast it… I don’t see how even he could have imagined what God was going to do. The film is a timely exploration of how Christians should respond in the midst of a world awash in pro-homosexual sentiment. The Westboro cult has it entirely wrong, and this presentation powerfully depicts how we should prepare ourselves to discuss the Gospel—no matter Read more […]

The ACLU Finally Finds a Chief Executive Who Should Obey the Law

Perhaps the ACLU might try to show us some commitment to principle? Or is that not possible? The ACLU is mad at the Oklahoma governor. According to Tulsa World, “Gov. Mary Fallin, monument unmoved by Supreme Court’s Ten Commandments ruling.” Gov. Mary Fallin on Tuesday said the Ten Commandments monument will stay at the Capitol despite a court ruling that said it violated the state Constitution and must be removed. Fallin said Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has asked the Oklahoma Read more […]

Mitch McConnell Claims Congress Helpless before Supreme Court

Has Mitch McConnell read the Constitution? Here’s a headline from The Hill: “McConnell: Congress can’t roll back gay marriage decision.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) said there’s little lawmakers can do to overturn a Supreme Court ruling allowing same-sex marriages in every state, suggesting any further action will rest largely with the courts.  “I don’t think so. I think the courts have pretty well spoken. We’ll be taking a look at whether or not religious liberty needs Read more […]

JPMorgan and Citigroup Give Themselves a Monopoly

JPMorgan and Citigroup are acting on the principle that they are too big to jail and the government is going along with it. Example #53 that the Rule of Law is dead and buried in America. From Zero Hedge: So to summarize: as we reported first (and we would be delighted if other so called financial experts dedicated as much effort to digging through the primary data as they have to desperately try to disprove our article), JPM [i.e. JPMorgan] has indeed cornered the OTC commodity market, with Read more […]

The Marriage Debate is Battle of Two Different Religions

Patrick Deneen, writing for Georgetown University’s Berkley Center, in many ways, nails it. As he points out, the debate over same-sex “marriage” should always have been seen as a battle of two different religions. Many times I have pointed to Liberalism’s flawed anthropology as a root of its painful failures and conflicts, and Deneen sees it, too: “Liberalism… was never ‘contentless,’ and its toleration was always limited to specific kinds of belief that would conform to deeper liberal anthropological Read more […]

ISIS Murders POWs Using Children

Be prepared to hear vehement denials that ISIS murders are in any way related to Islam. The Religion of Peace doing what Muhammad did. Here is the report in the Daily Mail: “Slaughter in the Roman amphitheatre: Horrific moment ISIS child executioners brutally shoot dead 25 Syrian regime soldiers in front of bloodthirsty crowds at ancient Palmyra ruin.” Child executioners are shown in the video being forced to brutally slaughter a group of more than 25 regime soldiers.  The video shows Read more […]

Happy Presbyterian Rebellion Day!

Yes, many observers have described the movement we celebrate on July 4 as a Presbyterian rebellion. Looking for someone to blame for the demise of freedom in America? Perhaps you need look no further than your local Presbyterian elder who has completely neglected the application of God’s truth for the civil realm. “John Calvin was the virtual founder of America” — influential German historian, Leopold Von Ranke (1795-1886) Don’t like taking the word of an historian? Then consider the statement Read more […]

Christian Speech Ban: Oregon Labor Commissioner Cancels First Amendment for Couple Being Bankrupted for Refusing to Bake Same-Sex “Wedding” Cake

Not only are Christians being punished for not speaking a Liberal message, but they are subject to a Christian speech ban. [Editor’s note: Happy Fourth of July!] You think the modern rainbows are all about “tolerance,” eh? Yeah, tolerance meaning: If you don’t agree, we’ll sue you, fine you, bankrupt you, and strip you of your First Amendment rights to even talk about what we’ve done to you. Uh huh, that kind of tolerance. [See also, “Christian Cake Bakers Bankrupted by State.”] As Read more […]

The IMF Has Arranged Financial Doom for the EU

The financial doom will be when every insolvent nation demands the same bailouts that Greece is getting, even though they are too big to bail. “Tyler Durden” at Zero Hedge asks, “Did The IMF Just Open Pandora’s Box?” By now it should be clear to all that the only reason why Germany has been so steadfast in its negotiating stance with Greece is because it knows very well that if it concedes to a public debt reduction (as opposed to haircut on debt held mostly by private entities such as Read more […]

CNN Anchors Both Carry and It Saved Their Lives

If these CNN anchors had both been unarmed, they would probably be dead and we would be hearing more anti-gun news stories about it. Watch this one go down the CNN memory hole almost immediately. (They did feel compelled to acknowledge the story.) Former Headline News anchor—Lynne Russell—and her husband (a former CNN correspondent) BOTH carry concealed weapons, and had to use them to defend themselves against a violent thug. Here it is from KOAT.com: “A former CNN correspondent was Read more […]
