  • On the Super Bowl and the Social Fabric

    02/07/2018 4:40:54 AM PST · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | February 7, 2018 | Ben Shapiro
    On Sunday, I attended the Super Bowl, along with my father, my business partner and the president of our company. It was an amazing event. That wasn't just because the game was terrific -- although it was. It was because for all the competitive fire, for all the passion and excitement, one feeling permeated the stadium in the freezing wilds of Minnesota: love. Yes, love. The people in the stadium may have hated the other team, but they didn't hate one another. Patriots fans sat next to Eagles fans, and everybody got along; we all shouted ourselves hoarse when the...
  • Are Protestants Together?

    Running Away From My Church Blog ^ | 2/2/2018 | Robert Messner
    Some time ago, I read the short book Are We Together? A Protestant Analyzes Catholicism written by the late Reformed preacher R.C. Sproul. It was a good read; I thought that Sproul treated this controversy with a degree of fairness and accuracy that was not present in other books that I have read on this subject. He basically laid the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Westminster Confession side-by-side as he worked through the major differences. Sure, there were some snarky comments here and there but I overlooked these since it was clear that the book was being targeted...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Sunday touted the Democratic Party's growing unity against President Trump amid signs of discord among the party's leadership, Politico reported. "We have come together as the party of opposition," Warren said after a town hall in Massachusetts, according to Politico. “We are not going to let a Republican majority that does not represent the will of the people just run over this country and I think it has shown up in health care, and I think it's now going to show up in the tax fight," she said, Politico reported. "We're in this one all...

  • BLM Co-Founder: No, We Wouldn’t Meet With Trump; He’s The Epitome of Evil

    Every time the nation appear divided, there’s always someone from Washington, whether it be a president, a senator, or a member of Congress that calls for bridging divides. We saw that with the assassination attempts on Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) and Steve Scalise (R-LA) in 2011 and 2017 respectively, though everyone returned to their partisan corners within days or weeks. It’s the nature of politics these days. When it comes to Black Lives Matter and the Trump administration, it’s no shocker that the two sides vociferously disagree on everything. Should they meet? Well, according to the co-founder of Black Lives...

    (This article contains language some may find offensive. All tweets attributed to Bellamy have been quoted as written.) Wes Bellamy's tweets contrast with other published messages of unity, empowerment Charlottesville Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy published several tweets between 2009 and 2014 using gay slurs, comments against white people, lewd slang for female genitalia and other profanities. Many of the old tweets show a stark contrast between his more recent posts lauding women’s and LGBTQ rights. Bellamy made his Twitter account private this Saturday. The tweets surfaced on social media after local blogger Jason Kessler posted criticism of the tweets on...

    So much for defanging the poisonous debate in Washington. Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park. Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it. One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.” The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP...

    First of all, today is the Feast Day of the Blessed Trinity, and so we would wish all of you a Happy Feast Day, and in particular we would wish the Eternal Father a Happy Father's Day! For those who are unaware or need to be reminded, belief in a Trinitarian God, that is Three Persons, One God, comes to us from our elder brothers and sisters in the faith, the Jews. The belief in the Trinitarian God as described is the universally accepted criteria to receive and accept the designation as a true Christian. So we Catholics should be...

    In the days leading up to the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump on Jan. 20, New York City has been a hotbed of non-violent protest against the soon-to-be 45th U.S. president. On Saturday, documentary filmmaker Michael Moore announced he's teamed up with actors Alec Baldwin and Mark Ruffalo to lead a star-studded demonstration Thursday evening outside the Trump International Hotel near Columbus Circle. Writers like Michael Cunningham and Eve Ensler gathered on the steps of the New York Public Library Sunday afternoon to defend freedom of expression under the incoming Trump administration. And at least five local congressional representatives have decided to boycott the swearing-in on Capitol Hill. However that political action didn't spook Michigan brothers Rob...

    It wasn’t an apology, but former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney appears to be embracing President-elect Donald Trump in a stunning turnaround from his days as a prominent leader of the Never Trump movement. After joining Trump for dinner at Jean-Georges restaurant in New York City, Romney made a lengthy statement to the press pool of reporters, remarking that he had a “wonderful evening” visiting with the president-elect. “These discussions I’ve had with him have been enlightening, and interesting, and engaging. I’ve enjoyed them very, very much,” he said. He expressed hope for America under the leadership of Donald Trump,...

    SALT LAKE CITY — As presidential candidate Evan McMullin (I) and his team watched the election results come in Tuesday night, they were furiously rewriting his speech. They, like most of the nation, were shocked that Donald Trump was poised as of early Wednesday morning to potentially win the presidency of the United States. But McMullin’s core campaign message, that the Republican party had forsaken its principles and allowed itself to be hijacked by a parasite named Trump, was validated by the incoming results, he told the crowd of supporters here in Utah. As of late Tuesday night, Trump led...
  • Prager: A Final Plea to Never-Trumpers

    It is very hard to publicly affirm a position for nearly a year and to then, at the last minute, change one's mind. Nevertheless, even as late as Election Day itself, I wish to address those conservatives and Republicans who have declared themselves Never-Trumpers. I was one of you in vigorously opposing Trump's nomination -- on my national radio show and in my syndicated column. And I paid a price, as you have, in losing longtime supporters -- in my case any number of listeners who supported Trump from the outset and found my strong opposition to him disappointing and...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has officially joined the Donald Trump campaign and has already hit the trail with Gov. Mike Pence in Iowa and Michigan. After a heated primary season for the Republican Party, Trump and Cruz came out of the Republican National Convention with a less-than-friendly relationship. "Sen. Cruz will join Gov. Pence in Iowa and Michigan today," Pence's press secretary Marc Lotter told USA TODAY. "Having Sen Cruz join the governor today underscores what he has been saying for the past few weeks and we are seeing happen across the country - it is time for Republicans...

After weeks of on again, off again support for Trump -- many of Utah’s elected officials say their nominee is not as bad as they thought “Donald Trump is no choir boy,” said Utah Senior Senator Orrin Hatch, but he knows Hillary Clinton and believes she cannot be President. “We are not voting for the pope,” reminded another at a rally at Utah’s State Capitol. “We are voting for a President.” Utah republicans who were bashing Trump...

    CNN)House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday urged Republicans to vote for their party's candidates -- including the GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump -- in what could be his final pitch before Election Day. "Republicans need to come home," Ryan said during an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. "Republicans need to vote." Ryan confirmed this week that he cast an early vote for Trump in Wisconsin, warning that a Hillary Clinton presidency would bring a torrent of scandals and investigations. But Ryan's recent expressions of support for the real estate mogul mark something of a change.

    Have been listening to Mark Levin for the last hour or so. Am happy to report that our old friend Mark appears to no longer be a NeverTrumper. It appears that he now believes Trump is a lot more of a constitutional conservative than McCain or Romney (well, duh). It seems Mark's biggest disagreement with Trump now is on free trade. Laments that no one sides with Reagan's trade policies anymore. (Hmmmmm.... I don't recall Reagan being all that much of a "free trader," thought he was very much for the working man, but that's just me). At any rate,...

We feel confident about Florida. We feel confident on Ohio. He is going to be out there pounding that pavement. We’re all going to be out there pounding that pavement. What we know Stewart is if Republicans come home, and it is time to do just that, he will win in November.
