Obamacare: split decision

When a plane like this was shot down over Ukraine, de facto President Obama failed of leadership.

Leadership: epic fail!

Two days ago, rebel forces in eastern Ukraine shot down an unarmed civilian airliner. Our de facto President barely acknowledged this. He was on his way to yet another fundraiser. Now we More »

Plasmodium falciparum illustrates irreducible complexity by being slow to develop resistance to the quinines.

Irreducible complexity

Irreducible complexity. That phrase gets a lot of attention in the creation-evolution debate, or the accident-design debate. As well it should. Irreducible complexity shows that life did not come about by accident, More »

Israel invades Gaza

Thirteen years of pseudo-war, continued terrorism, and lately unprovoked attacks came to an end today. Israel has now invaded Gaza, from land, sea and air. The only remaining question is: will they More »

Police state USA?

A Nashville Sheriff's Police Bearcat. Sign of a police state?

Is America turning into a police state? Is someone deliberately turning America into that? Several disturbing signs, each explainable by itself, form a chilling pattern. And the pattern might reach deeper in history than one administration.

Problems small and large

The problems of taxation and immigration are really the problem of taxation and government giving away free lunch.

Politicians make the news today, talking about problems they say are big problems. In fact, they are small problems, and symptoms of much larger problems. Until the people embrace a solution to the larger problems, even the smaller problems will stay insoluble.

Spitting toward heaven

Jeroboam spit toward heaven. Remember where that got him.

Last week we witnessed four denominations emboldened by this criminal, “sodomite-advocating” administration, joining the ranks of the apostate in America. Namely, the United Church of Christ (that claims 1 million members with about 5,200 congregations), the Presbyterian Church USA, the Moravians, who voted to ordain gay clergy, as well as the Pentecostal Church International (1 Timothy 4:1).

Thad Cochran will lose anyway

Thad Cochran

Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) can’t win the general election. His campaign did many disgusting and possibly illegal things. But suppose he wins the legal battles to come? Suppose no judge or jury can or will convict him or his campaign? He still can’t win. Because he laid himself wide-open to a common Democratic attack. So CNAV repeats: he will wind up hoist by his own petard.

Thad Cochran: specious story

The campaign staff of Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss) vigorously deny buying votes with direct cash payments. But the key witness in this affair has four text messages that speak to such payments. Yesterday the chief spokesman for the Thad Cochran campaign tried to explain them away. And his explanations are worse than specious.

Thad Cochran: more evidence

Ballot box. The Electoral College compact relies on stuffing this.

Evidence continues to mount against Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). Yesterday a witness came forward and charged that Thad Cochran paid voters to vote in the Republican runoff. If this charge holds, then Thad Cochran could lose the nomination by default. He might also face expulsion from the United States Senate. Either way, he would find himself hoist by his own petard.

The board is nailed

A typical Muslim national flag: green with a white crescent and star.

The Daily Iowan Editorial Board appears to have fallen prey to some very dangerous rhetoric – as though influenced by an un-American entity. Rather than provide an overview or opinion, their editorial presents a plethora of deceitful statements in defense of Islamic sharia law – preaching that it is compatible with religious liberty.

Hobby Lobby wins for us all

Supreme Court rules for Hobby Lobby

The Hobby Lobby store chain, and more particularly the family that holds all its shares, won their case before the United States Supreme Court. They do not have to give any good or service, as a benefit to those who work for them, when such giving would break their religious faith.

Chris McDaniel still fights

Ballot box. The Electoral College compact relies on stuffing this.
Print Friendly

Chris McDaniel, as everyone knows, “lost” the Mississippi Republican runoff election to Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). The quote marks have a reason behind them.  In fact, Thad Cochran won with at least 35,000 votes, and maybe 38,000, that normally would have gone to a Democrat. And if enough of them did go to one Democrat or another in the primary earlier this month, those votes can’t count in the runoff. And with that, Chris McDaniel might win after all.

Cycle of tyrants and nations

God, if you are there, strike me dead!

– Italian dictator Benito Mussolini

Many years later God did accommodate when the tyrant Mussolini and his mistress were condemned to death. Mussolini said, “Let me save my life and I will give you an empire!” then began shouting “No, No.” They were both executed along with main members of his cabinet on April 29, 1945. Their bodies were savagely beaten then hung upside down at an Esso gas station in the Plazzale Loreto in Milan.
