    It’s been a long week and I think we could all use a palate cleanser. How about FLOTUS visiting sick children at the National Institute of Health to pass out Valentines and make cookies?The media coverage was predictable, as usual: Melania Trump was feeling the love on Valentine's Day in $2,995 Calvin Klein look. [Imagine that, wife of billionaire wears designer coat.] Melania Trump Spends Valentine's Day with Ill Kids as Husband's Lawyer Admits He Paid Off Porn Star. [Guess what? We still don’t care.] And my personal favorite: Twitter calls her out for not wishing her husband a happy...

    On February 14 around the year 278 A.D., Valentine, a holy priest in Rome in the days of Emperor Claudius II, was executed. Under the rule of Claudius the Cruel, Rome was involved in many unpopular and bloody campaigns. The emperor had to maintain a strong army, but was having a difficult time getting soldiers to join his military leagues. Claudius believed that Roman men were unwilling to join the army because of their strong attachment to their wives and families. To get rid of the problem, Claudius banned all marriages and engagements in Rome. Valentine, realizing the injustice of...
  • Sick Planned Parenthood Valentine’s Day Prank Asks People to Show “Love” for Abortion

    Planned Parenthood’s Valentine’s Day prank demonstrates just how devoid the organization is of true love. To spite United States Vice President Mike Pence and re-enact a previous prank, Planned Parenthood released a call this Valentine’s Day to donate to their abortion group in Pence’s name, the Federalist reports. The abortion chain apparently is replicating actress Mila Kunis’ prank that accomplished the same trick. Planned Parenthood jokingly remarked that it is urging this donation to “break Mike Pence’s heart.” The remainder of the report demonstrates that the vice president’s heart is not the only one that Planned Parenthood seeks to break....

She quickly prepared to jump in with frosting and sprinkles for the heart-shaped cookies being decorated by kids ages 4 to 11, who suffer from a variety of rare illnesses. "Do you like to play and run around with your friends?" the first lady asked of Lucy Wiese, a 9-year-old from Virginia who has a rare immunodeficiency disease and has already made 29...

    I believe that the one most revealing, the most essential characteristic of our Creator is love. By His love He made us, and because of His love He redeemed us. We are closest to His nature and what He created us to be when we are living our lives according to His idea of love. He also told us that His entire law can be summed up with one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” What does that mean? What does it mean to love your neighbor as you love yourself? First of all, who is our “neighbor?” Most of...

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that . . . Let’s take a break from the MSM’s non-stop Rob Porter coverage and note an amusing CNN moment. Chris Cuomo was interviewing GOP Rep. Jim Jordan this morning. Jordan began by wishing Cuomo a Happy Valentine’s Day. There was a problem with Cuomo’s earpiece, and as they were checking it, Jordan repeated the greeting twice more. When they finally got the problem straightened out, Jordan said: “Chris, first time I’ve ever told a guy Happy Valentine’s three times in one day.” Get the rest of the story and view the video...

    A couple displaced by the Oroville Dam evacuations almost had their Valentine’s Day wedding plans canceled -- were it not for a number of fellow evacuees and Placer County workers who helped put on an impromptu wedding at the evacuation center. Henry Rueda and now-wife Leotta's marriage was 10 years in the making, but Sunday they were forced to evacuate their Olivehurst, California, home for the Placer County Fairgrounds, with about 300 other displaced residents. Authorities ordered people to leave the area when a hole developed in an eroded area of the spillway, raising concerns that the spillway could fail...

    Today, February 14, is Valentine’s Day, the sacred day that intimate companions mark to celebrate their love and affection for one another. If you’re thinking about making a study of how couples celebrate this day, the Muslim world and the milieus of the radical Left are not the places you should be spending your time. Indeed, it’s pretty hard to outdo Islamists and “progressives” when it comes to the hatred of Valentine’s Day. And this hatred is precisely the territory on which the contemporary romance between the Left and Islamic Supremacism is formed. The train is never late: every year...

  • BECAUSE OF ISLAMIC IMMIGRATION--NO VALENTINES DAY FOR AMERICAN KIDS.

    Because of the cult of multiculturalism and Islamic immigration, kids in the Bruce Vento Elementary School in St. Paul, Minnesota will not be having Valentines day anymore. The school is also thinking of doing away with Thanksgiving and Christmas. We must not upset the sensitivities of our new Muslim neighbors. There is a discussion about how to deal with Islam. The talking heads seem to agree that we are all against terrorism and radicalized Islam but we are for moderate Islam. So where does this fit in? It isn't terrorism because the muslims are not attacking or threatening physical assaults...

    A waiter has posted a check online, which he claims was from Valentine's Day. On it, a lengthy, angry note is written, telling the waiter that he was "stereotyping" his customers by assuming he would receive no tip. Therefore, because he stereotyped them, he received no tip. The bill came to a sizable $163.40. Next to "tip," two lines were drawn through indicating that the waiter would receive nothing extra. The explanation was on the back of the receipt...
