If progressives were honest about wanting to limit political pressure from government decisions, they would do well to recall Thomas Jefferson’s words: “That government is best which governs least.”

Everyone should agree to ban AR-15s. That was the conclusion of a recent article in the Atlantic magazine by a radiologist who was shocked by the bodily damage revealed in a CT scan of one of the victims of the mass murder at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
For about five decades, the nation has commemorated ‘Presidents Day’ in place of Washington’s birthday, despite the fact the law still officially recognizes the latter.
To commemorate his birthday, let us draw on the history lessons of Abraham Lincoln, almost universally lauded as a wonderful person, if not the nation’s best president.
After Oprah gave a speech at the Golden Globe awards, the press began to tout her as a natural winner for democrats if she runs for president against Donald Trump in 2020.
Global warming has never been about the earth getting warmer. It’s always been about control and money – their control and our money.
Here’s some advice for those who still chafe at Trump’s histrionics. It’s all theatrics. Rope a dope. Distraction to aggravate and get the opposition responding to things that don’t matter.
Here’s to an end to pretending evil is praiseworthy and for a new era in which God-ordained government can be trusted to punish evil doers and suppress evil.
Every election is a choice between greater and lesser evils. That’s guaranteed in a world populated exclusively with fallen sinners.
We on the right side of the spectrum delight in pointing out The Left’s hypocrisy. But hypocrisy is a two-lane highway. The self-righteous on our side travel it as well.
Illegal aliens flooding across the border, unable to speak the language, having few skills to contribute, refusing to assimilate, reliant on government handouts. Rome. The USA.
It’s truly sad that a presidency that has done so much good can be undone by what some call The Deep State of unaccountable, faceless government operatives and their sharp knives in the media.
There is one more reason Paris went up in smoke: a man who recognized its fatal flaws was in position to do something about it. Donald Trump refused to drink the Kool-Aid.
It is a season of hard lessons. It can be fruitful – but only if the lessons are learned. Don’t hold your breath. Trump seems to be following through with his campaign promise to drain the swamp.
Many of our Christian brethren demand more refugees be brought to the U.S., citing as justification the Good Samaritan parable and commandments to love our neighbor and to share the Gospel.
If the FBI has discovered 300 refugees that slipped through “rigorous” vetting, how many more will be among the next 680,000?
Since Trump took on the intelligence establishment he has been afflicted by one leaked scandal-in-the-bud after another, all clearly originating from that realm of secrecy populated by agents and spies. Coincidence? Or conspiracy?
It’s that time of year when praise is heaped on the man many Americans believe is the all-time best United States president. Sadly, they are wrong. It’s hard to be more wrong.
While we’re at it, let’s make English speaking, reading and writing the law of the land, certainly for people who want to come here from other countries.
But before long, it became obvious Obama wasn’t incompetent. He was in fact achieving precisely what he told everyone he intended to achieve: fundamentally change America.
If an instance of disputable ‘news’ automatically disqualifies a publication from consideration, we would be left with no publications.
Donald Trump apparently wants to downsize the CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Remember the last president with similar intentions?
You don’t need “fact-checkers” to know what’s what. Indeed, be aware: the more self-laudatory the fact-checker, the more likely you’re getting sophisticated spin.
How did Trump “persuade” Carrier? Initial news reports including in the Wall Street Journal, say Carrier was promised $7 million in tax breaks.
Congratulations America. “Elections have consequences.” Babies can be saved. Taxes can be reduced. Wars can be averted. Borders can be patrolled. Islamist terror can be defeated. Jobs can be created.
It’s not an either-or choice. It’s not politics or God. It is, and should be, both. Voting for godly men can result in a nation’s laws being more good than bad, accommodating good while suppressing evil.
Hillary won’t even concede that a baby on the verge of birth is a ‘person.’ That’s how she justifies killing the child for the mother’s convenience.
Hillary regards people as widgets, not human beings deserving of dignity. Most assuredly, Hillary will be literal death to millions of unborn babies who she finds no reason to regard as human beings.
In Hillary Clinton, a third great leap looms. She would dramatically advance big government and progressivism to extents unimagined.
There is nothing wrong with grieving. The Bible tells us to grieve when appropriate. Even Jesus wept. Patriotism also is not an evil when it exalts high principles that set us apart from the rest of the world.
