Is the Islamic State Really ‘Not Islamic’?

Sunday, September 14th, 2014

By Jonah Goldberg

Anyone who thinks jihadism is authentically Muslim won’t change his mind because Obama says so.

Certainty

Sunday, September 14th, 2014

A smart person told me that while deciding when human life begins is “above [the president's] pay grade,” Mr. Obamsa apparently knows with theological certainty that the Islamic State really isn’t Islamic. I just wish he knew as much about being commander in chief as he knows about Muslim theology.

Outsourcing

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

ISIS has declared war on us, so why haven’t we declared war on ISIS? And if ISIS is the threat that President Obama says it is, then why are we refusing to put our own boots on the ground and instead outsourcing the job to our “partners”? (Assuming the great multilateralist and expert on Islam can get anyone to join him for this muddled venture–Germany and Turkey have already said “no thanks.”) Haven’t we learned anything since Vietnam? If we’re going to go to war, doesn’t it make sense to actually try to win it? This requires “blood, toil, tears, and sweat,” not “pinpricks” or “kinetic action.”

One Book, One Story

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Q&A with Daniel Darling

“I think a lot of our evangelical churches aren’t doing the hard work of preaching and teaching. Too often, we learn a piecemeal approach. Do our children’s Sunday schools present a series of disjointed stories and characters, or do they present the plan of salvation as Jesus did, ‘beginning with Moses and all the Prophets,’ explaining how it all points to him? The same thing goes with our preaching. Are we presenting the whole counsel of God, or are we cherry-picking favorite or popular topics?”

Bungling

Friday, September 12th, 2014

I hope President Obama’s new policy on ISIS (made necessary by his prior bungling on ISIS) is as effective as his speech on Wednesday night, but I have my doubts. Is it wise to tell an enemy as brutal as the Islamic State–which by the way, isn’t Islamic–that you’ll put no boots on the ground? Why not let them wonder? And let no one suspect that ISIS will go along with whatever combat restrictions Mr. Obama places on American troops, anyway. ISIS doesn’t fight fair.

Tardy Obama talks tough on ISIS. But can anyone really believe him?

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

By Andrew Malcolm

Unfortunately, these 1,985 well-spoken words of Obama’s come in the context of a presidency that has been degraded and virtually destroyed by his own actions — and inactions.

Distractions

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

Tell me again how the NFL just can’t handle the distractions that Tim Tebow brings to the game? It seems to me that pro football could use a little Tebowmania right about now.

So You Want to Write a Christian Book

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

By Jerry B. Jenkins

A psychologist once told me, “I’ve always wanted to write a novel.”

I said, “Interesting. I’ve always wanted to be a counselor.”

He said, “I didn’t know you were trained for that.”

Apparently one has to be trained for his profession, but not for mine.

Strategy

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

We’ll find out tonight whether the president finally has a strategy for ISIS, but we already know that he has a strategy for the 2014 midterms. Inside sources have told The New York Times that Mr. Obama, to help Democrats avoid the wrath of voters, will delay until after the election his executive order granting amnesty to millions of illegals. He must think we’re really dumb. Of course, he’s gotten pretty far thinking that, hasn’t he?
