  • ISIS is Barack Obama's mess and now he wants Canada's help

    ISIS is Barack Obama’s mess. He made it and now he wants our help to clean it up. What do Canadians owe him? He’s turned his back on allies such as Israel, having proven himself a bigger friend to the likes of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood than to the Jewish state. He’s no friend of Canada’s. Instead of working with his friends, he’s tried in vain to appease such longtime enemies as Iran. His rush to pull out of Iraq without leaving a reserve force behind has led to the disaster we see unfolding there now. Now Obama needs...

    Growing up in the South, the narrative surrounding slavery I heard was that the Africans were walking around free in their own country, minding their own business when white men came over in ships. The white men attacked, chained, kidnapped and forced the Africans aboard ships. This storyline was repeated both at school and in the black churches. However, the chain of events never quite added up with me. I remember the first time I raised a question about this narrative to my sixth grade teacher. I asked her how was it that these white men could invade a foreign...

    The more things change, and all that. Here’s a satirical piece I found in my files from the year 2000, inspired by a previous president. Now, when Obama is being celebrated for his “Lie of the Year,” it seems like a good time to publish this piece. I haven’t changed a syllable….President Clinton today told a delightful litany of small distortions and big whoppers to an admiring audience of ordinary hand-picked citizens. Reporters on the scene said they had rarely seen the president in such good form. President Clinton announced two bold new programs he has no intention of supporting,...

    As a youngster, I remember being taught to offer your seat on the bus to any elderly person. It was not unusual to see people offering to help carry a heavy or awkward box when a perfect stranger was obviously struggling with one. In today’s culture, it would not be unusual for the stranger to encounter harsh criticism instead of help, because he failed to appropriately plan the transport of the heavy box. What has produced the coarsening of attitudes in modern society? Are the crude and mean-spirited comments heard on television and read in the print media having an...

    The belief among the American people that President Barack Obama is “honest and trustworthy” has hit an all-time low, according to a Gallup poll released today. Nonetheless, 50 percent of those surveyed by Gallup do believe the president of the United States is an honest and trustworthy man. Forty-seven percent do not. Also hitting or matching all-time lows, according to Gallup, are the beliefs that Obama has a clear plan for solving the countries problems, that he can manage the government effectively, that he understands the problems Americans face in their daily lives, and that he is a strong and...

    Barack Obama says more dumb things in a day than some people say in a lifetime. For instance, regarding the shutdown, he said: “The House Republicans are holding the government hostage.” I know that Obama isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer and that he has only a passing relationship with the Constitution, but someone should tell him that the House is a part of the government, no matter how he feels about it. So, were we to take him at his word – always a bad idea! – the House Republicans would be guilty of holding themselves hostage. One...

Billy Ray Harris was able to buy house and car after donors rewarded his act with more than $190,000 in online gifts. "When I think of the past, I think, 'Thank God it's over,'" he told the "Today" show. "I mean, I feel human now." Harris was living on the streets of Kansas City, Mo., in February when Sarah Darling dropped a few coins and her diamond and platinum ring in his cup. Neither noticed until later. Harris said a...

Perhaps the single greatest fact that impedes our nation’s ability to engage in civil discourse is the existence of the “elephant in the room” – the one fact that half of Americans simply can not bring themselves to admit, or they rationalize away with the excuse, “everyone does it.” Perhaps the single most vile, disgusting,...

Gingrich, a trained historian and author, began his 15-minute speech by noting President Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the first national military cemetery when he spoke of “government of the people, by the people, for the people." “And we’re going to have people power to defeat money power in the next six months,” he said in a reference to Florida victor Mitt Romney,...

    This shouldn't surprise many people. According to a Pew Research poll, the liberals who relentlessly advocate higher taxes are three times more likely than conservatives to think it's okay to cheat when paying them. They are more than twice as likely to excuse getting paid under the table so as to keep collecting unemployment benefits. Liberals also have less of a problem with shoplifting and buying stolen goods. A study published in the Journal of Legal Tax Research confirms that liberals take tax evasion less seriously. One in the Journal of Business Ethics found that conservatives have "higher levels of...

    "Restore Our Future, a super-PAC supporting Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, will run full-page ads attacking Newt Gingrich in the New Hampshire Union Leader and The State in Columbia, S.C., the most prominent newspapers in the next two primary states. The decision to attack Gingrich is a curious one, as Rick Santorum has emerged as Romney’s top rival for the GOP nomination after he virtually tied Romney on Tuesday in Iowa’s caucuses. Post-voting analysis shows much of Gingrich’s support in that state ended up going to Santorum."

Since then I've noticed that Herman Cain fears no one to the right of him and seems to cherish the fight with those he considers to be to his left(politically speaking). Do you think that Herman Cain is the (CAIN+PALIN) express because of his conservative values? Can Herman Cain win if Palin won't endorse a candidate in the primaries? Do you believe Herman Cain has proven to be equal or better than Palin as a conservative? Finally, Why as Herman...

Cain would need independents and Palin has a lot of negatives, also, she's from Alaska, not a key state. The simple truth of the matter is Palin is no longer important as some think she is. And any candidate that latches on to her, or rather, let's Sarah latch on to them could quite possibly end up losing the independents. So, watch for the nominee to distance himself (whoever he...

    For too long, politicians have been afraid to speak honestly about entitlement reform — but the American people deserve the facts, Texas Gov. Rick Perry writes in an op-ed that appeared Monday in USA Today. Perry provides the cold, hard truth: Social Security’s unfunded liability is calculated in the trillions of dollars. Last year, annual Social Security outlays exceeded annual revenues for the first time since 1983. The Congressional Budget Office projects that outlays will be roughly 5% greater than revenues over the next five years, worsening as more and more Baby Boomers retire.By 2037, retirees will only get roughly...

    Brannon Howse of “Worldview Weekend” responded to my article “A ‘Howse’ Built on Prophetic Sand.” The title of his response article is “Howse, Markell, Hunt, Ice, Reagan, McTernan, Salhus, and Rosenberg, Are Not the Enemy or the Problem with America.” As anyone who read my original article can see, Brannon never responded to a single point I made. This is bad form for the head of a worldview ministry. It sets a bad example for the church and the world. The following is an example of how the head of a Christian worldview ministry should respond to a critical article:...

    Jennifer Aniston is in hot water for using a politically incorrect term on “Live with Regis & Kelly” Thursday morning. While promoting her flick “The Switch,” Aniston discussed her recent Barbra Streisand-inspired photo shoot for “Harper’s Bazaar” on the show. "Yeah, I got to play dress up,” Jen said to Regis, “I do it for a living, like a retard!" Now, disability advocates are bashing the actress for her word choice. A rep for the Special Olympics tells “Us Weekly,” "People with intellectual disabilities have fought their whole lives for understanding and recognition. When people continue to use the R...

    Housekeeper finds $6,000 and gets a $100 rewardNeed a sign that there is still some good left in the world? Look no further than Jeanne Mydil. The cleaning woman at the Miami International Airport Hotel was honored Thursday for returning $6,000 in cash that she found in a hotel nightstand after the guests had checked out. What makes the honest act even more remarkable is Mydil's husband died just a week before and she was struggling to figure out how to pay for his burial. But Mydil had a feeling the money was more important to someone else than it...

    It is no secret that many of us who reject Obama's neo-communist agenda have turned to the Founding Fathers for guidance; when you think your country's founding principles are under attack, it's natural to re-acquaint yourself with the writings of the extraordinary group of men who wrote our founding documents.   When we examine this genius cluster, George Washington is perhaps the best loved.  Last week Glenn Beck recommended the four-year old, 1208-page tome, George Washington's Sacred Fire, which discusses pop culture fave topics like the religious beliefs of our first President.  The book shot to number one on Amazon's bestseller...

    What are your most embarrassing moments? You don’t want to admit them. And if you do admit them, you certainly won’t add to your shame by inventing embarrassing moments about yourself to make you look even worse. Who’s going to lie to make himself look bad? People will lie to make themselves look good (especially politicians), but no one will lie to make himself look bad. That’s why when historical accounts contain events embarrassing to the authors (or heroes of the authors) those events are probably true. Historians call this the principle of embarrassment, and it’s one reason why I...

    (CNN) -- I wish the titans of Wall Street could meet Mark Dalton. Not that it would be likely to change anything. But I wish the leaders of Goldman Sachs and of the other big banking firms could talk to Mark Dalton for just a few minutes. They might learn a few things about how to better connect with the American people. I didn't know Dalton's last name until a few days ago. For almost two years, I've held onto something he mailed to me. There was no reason not to throw it out, yet I had a feeling that...
