The so-called government “shutdown” which is not really a shutdown at all, but perhaps more of a slowdown, is now approaching the end of its first week. In that time, President Obama has used the vast powers at his disposal as the chief executive to intimidate, harass, and otherwise persecute the American people for daring to disagree with him. However, the same is also true of the rest of his... More
Our government is out of control.
First, it was the World War II veterans who had to break down barriers to see the open air, un-attended memorial erected in their honor. A memorial which is on public land but is supported – including the National Park Service fee – with private funds. This week there was more security surrounding this memorial — just to keep elderly veterans... More
After relentless and vociferous criticism from feminist organizations, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius has abandoned her opposition to the over-the-counter sale to minors of the so-called “Plan B” contraception pill which can also be used to cause the abortion of a fertilized egg. This cowardly retreat by Secretary Sibelius is hardly surprising, but it is nevertheless rev... More
The Washington Post now reports that officials at the highest levels of the Internal Revenue Service were aware of the program to target conservative organizations applying for tax-exempt status prior to the 2012 elections but that they remained silent. The deliberate and shocking targeting of conservative organizations that sought tax-exempt status stands in contrast to government collusion wit... More
There is an ancient Jewish proverb that, “The world is a staircase; some are going up and some are coming down.”
This is especially true of men entrusted with great power. In the case of President Obama and soon-to-be Pope Emeritus Benedict, the contrast of the two men’s fortunes is especially instructive. Whereas the latter is descending the proverbial staircase with grace and self-... More
It’s worth noting, isn’t it? That if Romney had won the election, there would be no talk of false ‘accommodations’ with the HHS mandate. The mandate would be gone.
And we also wouldn’t have this…
The President of the United States recorded a message for NARAL Pro-Choice America, which celebrated the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on Tuesday.
“To everyone at N... More
The horror felt is real, because the carnage of massacre was horrifying.
Twenty young children, slain for no good reason. Adam Lanza just decided they were inconvenient to him. It was horribly wrong to do this. What Lanza did was wrong not because the parents of those children loved them and wanted them to remain alive. What Lanza did was wrong because each those children was an individual, uniqu... More
Ironic that the second inaugural of President Barack Obama falls on the memorial of St. Agnes of Rome.
Legend has it that when she was sent naked to the brothel, her hair miraculously grew long enough to cover her virginal body.Agnes was 12 years old when she was chosen to wed Procop, the son of the powerful prefect Sempronius. She refused, having pledged her life and her virginity to Christ. The ... More
During his gun control press conference today President Obama referenced a few young children who were in the room who had written letters to him concerning violence with guns.
After reading excerpts from their letters and getting them to wave he said,
These are our kids. This is what they’re thinking about. And so what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them, and ... More
¡Amigos para siempre! (Means you'll always be my friend.)
[Thanks to Don Shaolin in the comments for the assistance with my Spanish.]
As predictable as Michelle Bachmann introducing a complete Obamacare repeal, über-liberal representative José Serrano of New York introduced a repeal of the 22nd Amendment, the one that instituted presidential term limits.
Now, to be sure, ... More
