  • Obama Says Politics Is Infecting Our Communities

    RUSH: So Obama is back on the campaign trail, stump speeching for Democrat candidates for whatever, which guarantees those candidates are going to lose, by the way. But he said something that typifies to me the divide that we have in the country. Obama is saying that instead of politics reflecting our values, politics is now intruding or corrupting or whatever our communities. There it is again, our communities, instead of politics reflecting our values. Now, the arrogance of that — let me tell you what Obama means by that. He means that when he was president and his administration...

    I saw the strength of America this past weekend, her will, her goodness, her compassion, her unity and her greatness. It was in Payson – a small town in Arizona I’m sure most of you have never even heard of – when the residents of the area came together on a Saturday night to honor their veterans. Farmers, cowboys, merchants, clerks, truck drivers and Americans of all professions, put aside their beliefs and political persuasions, their differences and banded together to pay homage to those who had put their lives on the line for the liberty of our beloved America....
  • Paying the price for breakdown of the country's bourgeois culture

    Too few Americans are qualified for the jobs available. Male working-age labor-force participation is at Depression-era lows. Opioid abuse is widespread. Homicidal violence plagues inner cities. Almost half of all children are born out of wedlock, and even more are raised by single mothers. Many college students lack basic skills, and high school students rank below those from two dozen other countries. The causes of these phenomena are multiple and complex, but implicated in these and other maladies is the breakdown of the country’s bourgeois culture. That culture laid out the script we all were supposed to follow: Get married...
  • A teen burned, buried her baby? So what?

    Brooke “Skylar” Richardson, an Ohio teen, landed in court last week for killing, burning and burying her newborn daughter, birthed a day or two after the school prom in May. She pleaded, “Not Guilty.” No big deal; we’ve been legally killing kids since 1973. If she hadn’t been so distracted preparing for prom, a quick trip to Planned Parenthood the day before would have done the trick with no negative ramifications. What difference does a day make?

    Conversation with liberal associate | 12 June 2017 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    A liberal friend and I had a conversation the other day after I called her and asked what her take was on the Comey hearing. The topic of discussion was the clear statement by Comey that the news stories about the Russian manipulation of our electoral process are false. The woman first denied my supposition that the media stories were "made up" and that they had deliberately put out lies. As the conversation progressed and through calm, logical explanation that Comey had said the stories were false and my belief that those producing such stories should face libel charges for...

    Values and what MY mom taught me | 9 June 2017 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    James Comey mentioned in his testimony at one time something about "what my mom taught me" in regard to values. He lied. Any man taught Biblical values properly by one's parents and/or Bible teachers at church and sometimes in an educational setting will stick by those values for the rest of his life. Comey hasn't done that. His priority in life was his income and retirement. So, he would go with the political winds in order to survive. Many have done this in their lives in order to remain employed and/or earn more money. So many senators praised Comey for...

    Our older son is finally moving out next week. He is 23 and has worked for our small business throughout his young adult life, but hadn't been able to find full time work that would pay enough to live on his own. He did pay rent while living here after college. The problem is that he has completely rejected our family values. I guess he was indoctrinated in college unfortunately. This was a kid that went with us to the original Bush rallies during the recount and was proud to be American, and even wrote a paper on my great...

    Under Armour could have lost one of its most popular clients hours after CEO Kevin Plank sang Donald Trump’s praises. Stephen Curry, who has built a strong partnership with the sports-retail brand over the years since he ditched Nike in 2013, heard Plank call Trump an “asset” for supporting American businesses in an interview with CNBC Tuesday. So Curry trimmed a few letters to fit his beliefs. “I agree with that description,” Curry told Mercury News, “if you remove the ‘-et’ from asset.” Curry, who quietly supported Hillary Clinton in the election, opened up on Wednesday about the frantic aftermath...

    A United States naval midshipman, David Farragut, commanded a captured British vessel during the War of 1812 — at age 12. Now major universities provide “healing spaces” with Legos, coloring books, Play-Doh, and puppies for students who “can’t handle” Donald Trump’s election victory.In 1798, Giocante Casabianca, who was 10 to 13, would not abandon his post without his commander’s word, and perished on his ship’s fiery deck during the Battle of the Nile. Today, undergraduates demand protection from “microaggressions,” which can include statements such as “America is the land of opportunity” and “I’m colorblind! I don’t see race.”Calvin Graham became...

    I will not buy Kellogg products. In fact, I won’t buy ANYthing from those who are not “aligned with our values.” BREITBART.com “DumpKelloggs: Breakfast Brand Blacklists Breitbart, Declares Hate for 45,000,000 Readers.” #DumpKellogs Hi kids. I’ve been eating Kellogg’s “cereal” for 70 years or more. Little did I know it appears to contain more apparent crap than a 1945 childrens’ chemistry set. Plus, they hate me.

    As the reality of President-elect Donald Trump settled in very early Wednesday morning, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes summed up an explanation common to many on the left: The Republican nominee pulled ahead thanks to old-fashioned American racism. But the attempt to make Trump’s victory about racism appears to be at odds with what actually happened on Election Day. Consider the following facts. Twenty-nine percent of Latinos voted for Trump, per exit polls. Remarkably, despite the near-ubiquitous narrative that Trump would have deep problems with this demographic given his comments and position on immigration, this was a higher percentage of those who...

    I love traveling abroad, and since 1986, I have traveled outside the United States (primarily overseas) close to 200 times, including almost 50 trips to Asia and more than 70 trips to Europe.During these trips (all for ministry purposes), I’ve spoken thousands of times through translators, sometimes in exotic jungle areas where man-eating tigers have been on the loose, sometimes in massive stadiums, sometimes in majestic, old church buildings, sometimes in huts.Who can describe the experience? The different sounds; the different cultures; the different tastes; the different clothes; the different languages; the different expressions – yet always the same...

    It took 200 years for the Roman Empire to fall. It appears to have taken the Constitutional Republic of The United States of America only 60 years, but still counting. What we see now is the fruit of decades of Marxist/Liberal infiltration and influences within the vital social, governmental, media, and cultural institutions of the America we have known. Their purpose: To radically change, or destroy, the Constitution, the government institutions and systems flowing from it. By so separating the Constitution from our national life, they degrade our traditional culture and values of Judaeo-Christianity that underpin the Constitution and stand...

    American Thinker ^ | September 6, 2016 | Noel S. Williams
    Conservative values are more conducive to lasting happiness; liberal values tend to engender fleeting pleasure. Liberals pursue happiness, but for conservatives it naturally ensues. Ever wonder why so many liberal Democrats are seething in discontent? It’s because they are takers, not givers. Mounting research indicates that generosity, rather than selfishness, is more likely to produce lasting happiness, an elusive emotion for liberals who languish on the wrong side of the generosity gap. Supported by analysis of IRS tax data, there’s plenty of evidence that states who voted for John McCain gave far more of their discretionary income to charity than...

    Modesty and Beach Volleyball Msgr. Charles Pope • August 14, 2016 • One of the less edifying aspects of the Summer Olympics in Rio is the attire of the women’s beach volleyball players from Western countries. Most of the women wear a tiny bikini with the bottom being especially tiny. (I do not show a picture here because I deem it immodest to do so. Instead, I show a picture of some of the men, whose attire I mention below.) Embed from Getty Images  Frankly, playing volleyball in a tiny bikini seems quite unnecessary. I would argue that it...

    It also encourages the teaching of the Bible in public schools because, the amendment said, a good understanding of its contents is “indispensable for the development of an educated citizenry.” Additional provisions included those that promoted state laws to limit which restrooms transgender people could use, nodded to “conversion therapy” for gays by saying that parents should be free to make medical decisions about their children without interference and stated that “natural marriage” between a man and a woman is most likely to result in offspring who do not become drug-addicted or otherwise damaged.
