Brussels and #NeverTrump

As I awoke this morning to the news of the multiple attacks in Brussels, a lot of things rushed to mind. Not only sympathy for our friends in Belgium, but a reminder of how much worse it could be in this War on Terror. Every time I hear about a…

Finding Islam’s ‘Luther’

A few weeks ago I saw a this video on The Kelly File of a Fredericksburg, Virginia man calling Islam evil and saying every Muslim is a terrorist and I got pretty angry. Why? Because I know that video went viral in the Muslim world, and it plays right into the…

Kim Davis – Fighting the Wrong Battle

Well, I just watched a clip of the former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee at the Kim Davis rally, complete with the song ‘Eye of the Tiger’ and people at the rally waving crosses. And as a Christian who believes the Supreme Court ruled incorrectly in Obergefell vs. Hodges, seeing that…

Toughen Up, Buttercup

When I started this piece it was meant to be a full-throated endorsement of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) for president. I believe he is at this moment the best candidate for Republicans to go forward with, given his record as governor and the fact that former Secretary of State…

Giving the Left a Taste of Their Own Medicine

Two New York City police officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were brutally murdered Saturday by someone claiming to exact revenge for what happened to Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. and what happened to Eric Garner in New York.

Republicans – Time to Go Bold!

Republicans won a smashing victory November 4, the scale and size that’s been rarely seen in politics. The GOP took the Senate, expanded its majority in the House of Representatives to the largest since 1928, and had one of the greatest nights in gubernatorial races any party’s ever experienced. This…
