    The Purdue University staffer who allegedly threatened online to rape pro-life women handed in his resignation Monday after refusing to apologize for his comments. Jamie Newman quit Monday morning amid outrage from students, the local community and pro-lifers across the nation, according to the Lafayette Journal & Courier. “Yeah, I just quit,” Newman wrote in an email to the newspaper. “Tell the world.” Purdue spokeswoman Julie Rosa said they accepted Newman’s resignation, which they believe is “the appropriate outcome” to the situation. Last week, Students for Life of America reported discovering Newman’s violent comment while monitoring online discussions about its...

    WASHINGTON - Former MSNBC progressive pundit Ed Schultz has found a new television home. The former Fargo area talk show host who famously switched from supporting conservative to liberal causes, announced in a YouTube video today that he’s now working for RT America, formerly called Russia Today. RT America is funded by the Russian government. Standing by a set of railroad tracks, Schultz announces: “For decades the American middle class has been railroaded by Washington politics. Big money corporate interest has drowned out a lot of voices. That’s how it is in the news culture in this country now. That’s...

    Republican lawmakers reportedly laughed at House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) after he told them he had been given a promise from Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). Lawmakers were amused at Ryan's naiveté for thinking that Reid is someone their party can trust. "I know, I know," Ryan replied with a smile, according to The Hill. Reid and Ryan just finished working together to help pass a $1 trillion dollar spending bill, which many argue contained far more liberal policies than conservative ones. Reid has promised Ryan that he will return to regular order in the New Year....

"What makes America America is that we offer that chance."

    Republican Donald Trump isn’t going away anytime soon, I now believe. That assessment doesn’t mean I think Trump is the favorite for the Iowa caucuses or the GOP nomination, but it does reflect a fundamental shift in my thinking. I can no longer say that with any certainty, though it remains the single most likely outcome. Trump’s favorable rating jumped from 27 percent in the May Selzer & Company’s Iowa Poll for the Des Moines Register and Bloomberg Politics to 61 percent in the August 23-25 Selzer survey. At the same time, his unfavorable rating dropped from 63 percent to...

    Today in America we have no shortage of fools. That is an obvious no-brainer. A fool is - in the Biblical sense - a stupid, wicked (especially impious), or vile person; fool (-ish, -ish man, -ish woman). A scoffer, blockhead or reprobate, a despiser of Almighty God and all that is truly good. The secular definition of fool is: one who is deficient in judgment, sense, or understanding. In both cases we see that the fool is a sound rejecter of the Laws of Nature, and of Nature's God. What is Foolishness to Whom? Conservatives, conservatism, and the adherence to...

    Arizona Sen. John McCain and other like-minded Republican senators could end up reprising roles as key deal-makers as the party seeks a final negotiated solution to the government shutdown. With a core group of House Republicans sticking together in their chamber, and Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell taking a low public profile in the fight, that leaves McCain and similar-thinking GOP senators to look for a deal. McCain has argued over and over again that this is one battle that the Republicans simply cannot win. And most Republican senators seem to agree with him, but there is little evidence that...

    With the threat of a government shutdown looming over a conservative battle to defund Obamacare, tensions on Washington are reaching a fever pitch. It was with that likely in mind when Nancy Pelosi opened up to POLITICO about Republican hatred of President Obama. She said she’s never seen anything quite like it before, and surmised that Republicans can’t stand Obama because he’s “eloquent” and “effective.” Mike Allen asked Pelosi if the hatred is more “personal” than normal. Pelosi threw out this argument for why the GOP hates Obama so much. “He has a vision for our country. He’s brilliant, has...

    President Obama's decision to cancel his planned trip to Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin was the right thing to do in light of Russia's decision to grant asylum to Edward Snowden. But it also illustrates problems of the president's own making. One of Obama's chief aims upon assuming office was to remake the image of the United States in the world's eyes. And he has -- but not in the way he imagined. Speaking in Cairo in 2009, Obama promised specifically a "new beginning" in American foreign policy. Many interpreted the speech to be merely a criticism...

He appeared everywhere and said anything to convince the American Jewish community that the same man who sat in the church pews listening to Rev.

Currency wars have already started he said, citing the recent decision by the Swiss National Bank to peg the Swiss franc to the euro.

    Today, instead of warning another country, he praised Algeria for lifting its state of emergency decree that's been in effect since Obama was in law school somewhere.

So, Obama took the occasion Thursday to make a considerably longer statement celebrating the Motown Sound and Black History Month at another star-studded White House music party.

    Fools and Their DisobedienceThis is the first article in a series of articles on fools. Some people may hear the word fool and think of a silly friend or comedian. However, most folks associate the word fool with a negative connotation. The Bible has much to say about fools and without hesitation it presents the foolish in a negative light. Why study fools? If the Bible frowns on the foolish, then it would behoove man to learn about fools so that they can avoid being one. The series to be embarked upon will examine foolishness in a number of categories:...

    The president has lost the means for Clinton-style triangulation. It’s almost enough to evoke sympathy: The entire journalistic world poring over President Obama’s post-election comments and applying a humility meter to his words, his facial expressions, and his mood. Does he get it? Is he sufficiently abashed by the voters’ rebuke? But just when you think the guy has suffered enough, he short-circuits your pity. Traveling in India, the president misinterpreted the comments of an Indian businessman in a way that reveals his tenacious self-worship. As Jake Tapper reported, Mr. Bhupendra Kansagra, founder of Spice Jet, greeted the president: “Welcome,...

    Ed Schultz, a liberal commentator who has a television and radio show, has made it a common theme on his show to bash conservatives on a daily basis, calling them sexist, homophobic, and so on. Most recently he got in hot water for calling New Jersey governor Chris Christie a "cold-hearted, fat slob." In the meantime, he prides himself on his 'egalitarian' mindset. He is a "progressive," he says, nothing more. But be warned, if you should ever look in to what he allows on his Facebook pages, you will find a stream of homophobia, sexism, and pro-Socialist garbage. For...

    Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) weighed in on the controversy over a proposed mosque near the World Trade Center site Wednesday, calling the recent opposition to the project "one of the most disgraceful things that I've heard."  Franken was born in Manhattan, and lived there again while writing for "Saturday Night Live" over a period of 20 years. "I don’t know how many of you have been to New York, but if a building is two blocks away from anything, you can’t see it," he said of the mosque's proposed site. "It’s a community center. They’re going to have a gym....

    WASHINGTON--Michelle Obama and daughter Sasha returned from Spain on Sunday, a vacation at a lavish hotel on the Mediterranean coast that triggered her first controversy since becoming first lady. I'm told she made the trip because she promised one of her closest friends, a longtime Chicago pal who just lost her father, she would spend time with her. (snip) So why did Mrs. Obama go to Spain at this time? She's not tone-deaf politically. What was behind the "mother-daughter" vacation? A White House source told me that Blanchard's father passed away and Mrs. Obama was not able to make the...
