Nothing

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

Authorities determine that President Obama’s swap of five Muslim terrorists for an American soldier who walked away from his post is illegal, and the press says nothing. It turns out that the federal government does have Lois Lerner’s e-mails after all, but–gosh, darn it–it’s just too much trouble to retrieve them, and the press says nothing.

What good is freedom of the press if nothing newsworthy interests the press?

Just because you can grow a beard doesn’t mean you’re a man.

You’ve probably heard of it by now, the Ice Bucket Challenge. Those challenged are supposed either to dump an ice bucket of cold water over their head, or donate to ALS research. Most people do both, posting a video of their icy bath. It’s a stunt, but has successfully raised awareness of ALS as well as donations for research. But people should consider where their donations go and how the money is used.

JV Team

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

I’m glad ISIS is just the “JV team” of Islamist terrorism. I don’t think our sports-fixated president could handle the varsity.

A Call for Moral Rearmament

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

Because of the president’s extremely naive remarks this week (“a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century”), as well as newly revealed terror threats against the U.S., perhaps now is a good time to revisit my January 2010 column, “A Call for Moral Rearmament.”

September 11 should have put to death for all time the quaint notion that the world is getting better and better as it marches toward a bright, secular future—presumably with personal jetpacks, moon colonies, and every hut wired to the Internet. If anything, the planet is getting more religious, not less. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Fomenting

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

I have a sneaking suspicion that if the police officer in Ferguson is exonerated completely in the shooting of Michael Brown that certain “community organizers” will never be happy. They have a vested interest in fomenting rage and unrest. No amount of evidence will cause them to celebrate the man’s innocence. Unfortunately, some people will only be satisfied if the man is hanged publicly, no matter what. How many of these racially charged mob actions must America have to endure?

Martyrs in the Time of the Charity Selfie

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

By Stan Guthrie

Historians tell us that when a great plague wreaked havoc in the Roman Empire during the third century A.D., many pagans fled. The followers of Jesus (sometimes called Galileans) tended to the sick and dying, at times paying for their compassion with their lives.

Blame

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

The threat from ISIS must be pretty severe, because it even got President Obama to come off the golf course–at least for a few minutes. However, as per usual when Muslims do something evil, he was quick to assure the rest of us that Islam is not to blame, saying that “no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.” One wonders when Mr. Obama last read the sacred literature of Islam. Evidently a significant percentage of those who actually do read it (religiously) has come to a different conclusion.
