Attention

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

If you think that life is all about getting through with as few problems and as much stuff as possible, then you haven’t been paying attention.

Poet Wendell Berry responded to the technological utopianism of naturalistic scientism with an observation that I believe frames the entire discussion of what it means to affirm the complementarity of man and woman in marriage. His observation was that any civilization must decide whether it will see persons as machines or as persons. If we are creatures, he argued, then we have meaning and purpose and dignity—but with all of that we have limits. If we see ourselves as machines, then we will believe the Faustian myth of our own limitless power and our ability to reshape even what it means to be human.

Hollow

Monday, November 17th, 2014

President Obama says that the latest ISIS beheading is an act of “pure evil.” I agree, but how much weight should we ascribe to his words? Let’s face it. After spending years calling Republicans such as Mitt Romney evil, his use of the word against ISIS reveals how hollow his pronouncements are. We have no reason to believe anything our president says,. even when he somehow manages to say the right thing.

The Loneliest President Since Nixon

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

By PEGGY NOONAN

You don’t begin a new relationship with a threat, but that is what he gave Congress: Get me an immigration bill I like or I’ll change U.S. immigration law on my own.

Mr. Obama is doing what he knows how to do—stare them down and face them off. But his circumstances have changed. He used to be a conquering hero, now he’s not. On the other hand he used to have to worry about public support. Now, with no more elections before him, he has the special power of the man who doesn’t care.

Enthroned

Friday, November 14th, 2014

President Obama is never one to bow to the electorate. In the wake of the 2014 midterms debacle for Democrats, Mr. Obama is refusing to see that the voters told him clearly that they don’t like his policies–including his open-borders approach to illegal immigration. They don’t like his executive orders, and they don’t like him panderung and playing politics with important national issues. So why is he promising to grant amnesty unilaterally to 5 million illegals?

There are no elections left for the president. Like a king, he believes he can do what he wants now. Expect even more edicts from the throne in the next two years.

Deal

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

President Obama has just reached a global warming agreement with China that forces us to cut our emissions while allowing them to increase theirs. Aside from the ridiculous particulars of the deal itself–and does the Senate get a say?–has Mr. Obama seen a weather report from America lately?
