Councilwoman Resigns because of Christmas Tree

As far as I can tell, Charlene Storey had no objection to the ceremonial lighting of a large evergreen tree that was decorated with many ornaments. But when the city council called it a Christmas Tree, she flipped out. NJ.com reports, “Roselle Park councilwoman quits over ‘Christmas’ tree lighting.” Minutes after the council voted 4-2 Thursday night to change the name of the ceremony from A Tree Lighting to A Christmas Tree Lighting, the councilwoman-at-large, left the meeting. She later submitted Read more […]

Obama’s Christmas Fantasy: Jesus Taught “Bedrock Values of All Faiths”

Barack Obama took it upon himself to preach his version of Christianity at the lighting of the National Christmas Tree. An excerpt: Now, this is the 93rd time Americans have gathered by the White House to light the National Christmas Tree.  And as always, this tree is not alone -– all across America, in living rooms, and offices, churches, and town squares, families and neighbors are gathering to decorate trees of their own and get into the holiday spirit.  It’s a chance to come together and Read more […]

New York Times Calls for America to be Disarmed

Who didn’t see this coming? The New York Times, in its first front-page editorial in almost 100 years, today called on the government to force Americans to give up their guns “for the good of their fellow citizens.” “It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency,” the editorial states. After the events of the past week, which featured saturated coverage of two mass shootings, the media have Read more […]

‘Workplace Violence’ Crashes Planned Parenthood Pity Party

It’s been a week for juxtapositions, that’s for sure. First, a lone nut with a history of philandering, spousal abuse, drug usage, animal abuse and sexual deviancy, who seems to have had no contact with any church or any pro-life group, kills people near a Planned Parenthood clinic, utters the phrase “no more baby parts” and becomes an oxymoronic symbol for “Christian terrorism.” Then a married Muslim couple who recently spent a month in Saudi Arabia, who officials say had been “radicalized” Read more […]

Thanksgiving, Collectivism and Christianity

I know way too many ultraliberal folks. (Probably comes from living in California.) That being the case, Thanksgiving is not only a day for giving thanks, but it is a day of annual inevitability when the conversation at some point will turn and someone will assert that Thanksgiving is the very model of socialism and a demonstration of how collectivism is the moral duty of mankind as demonstrated in the Bible. Said assertion means Thanksgiving is also the day when I annually choke on a piece Read more […]

ABC’s ‘Scandal’ Shows Abortion as Sacred Experience

Modern liberalism has been compared by some people to a religion, and abortion has been said to be its sacrament. ABC seems to have unwittingly demonstrated that point with an episode of its show “Scandal” in which the main character, Olivia Pope, played by actress Kerry Washington, has an abortion. The scene is one of the most horrifying I’ve ever seen on television, and I’m a “Walking Dead” fan. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve never watched a full episode of “Scandal,” and after Read more […]

Racism, Economic Illiteracy Fuel Campus Protests

Yesterday apparently was unofficial Protest Day at campuses across the country. Encouraged perhaps by the nonsense that has recently been going on at “Mizzou” — the University of Missouri — students around the nation took up their pickets and pitchforks and marched. What for exactly varied, and in some cases the students themselves didn’t seem too certain why they were making a hullabaloo. Racism seemed to be the main issue, although as befitted a fundamentally socialist movement, economics Read more […]

If Bush Era Is Over Why Is Hillary Clinton Inevitable?

Republicans are through with Bushes but Hillary Clinton has the nomination locked. The Bush era is over, writes Edward Luce in the Financial Times: Jeb’ll fix it” is the latest mantra of Jeb Bush’s flailing campaign. Whatever problem America faces, Florida’s former governor has the nous to solve it. Alas, Jeb’s reinvention as a regular Joe with a toilet plunger is unlikely to fix his own campaign. Just one in 25 Republican voters now support him. Big donors are looking elsewhere. At Read more […]

Carson Surges; Media Get Their Racism On

As Ben Carson’s presidential candidacy seems to be soaring, the left-wing media are in a lather to destroy him. A new Quinnipiac poll shows Carson crushing Hillary Clinton by 10 points in a theoretical matchup. Therefore, the media have decided he must be stopped. This is what the media do to black Americans who stray from the liberal farm. It’s the same sort of attempted lynching given to Clarence Thomas all those years ago. To be sure, the lynching of Ben Carson hasn’t gotten into full Read more […]

Tom Tancredo Quits GOP; Should You?

Is former Congressman Tom Tancredo setting an example for us? By now you have all probably seen his editorial at Breitbart.com. Tom Tancredo begins: In a panel discussion at the University of Colorado after the recent Republican debate, I was asked by a student why she should be a Republican. The question forced me to ask myself the same thing. I gave the young woman the standard talking points–that Republicans believe in smaller government, individual rights, fiscal responsibility, and free Read more […]

Muslim Migrants Vanish From Refugee Camps

It’s hard to say which stage of The Plan we are on, or even whose Plan it is at any given moment, but clearly in matters related to the Muslim migrant invasion of Europe, all the plans are advancing. In what began in one German refugee camp and has now apparently become an epidemic, the German media reports, as many as half of the Muslim migrants flowing into the country and sent to refugee shelters have vanished and are presumed on the run inside Germany. The first mass disappearing act was Read more […]

DOJ Lets Lois Lerner, IRS Off the Hook

It was a foregone conclusion, but the Obama Administration’s right hand just couldn’t find anything wrong with what the left hand did, even if it was designed to help the president win a second term by targeting his political opponents. The Department of so-called Justice announced Friday that Lois Lerner and other IRS managers will not face any charges after singling out for harassment conservative groups that applied for nonprofit status leading up to the 2012 election. Dozens of conservative Read more […]
