Another Dred Scott Ruling?
March 11, 2015: As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to consider whether to overturn the marriage laws of all the states-as some activist federal judges have already done in some of the states--conservatives are naturally calling for judicial restraint. We must warn the court against another exercise of "raw judicial power" like that handed down with its infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. That cruel and unjust ruling is viewed as illegitimate by tens of millions of Americans. Young people, especially, are turning against abortion-on-demand. We see this in every pro-life march. And this public outcry is being translated into a bumper crop of pro-life legislation bubbling up in state legislatures.
Susan Rice: Choking on a Gnat
February 28, 2015: Even in a Senate then controlled by Democrats, President Obama's National Security Adviser, Susan E. Rice, could not be confirmed as his second term Secretary of State. That's because she notoriously went on five Sunday television news talk shows to claim that the September 11, 2012 attack on our diplomatic compound at Benghazi was provoked by an anti-Islamic video. It soon became clear that cover story was false. She was then our Ambassador to the UN.
The Word for this Administration: Islamisant
February 18, 2015: We Americans have been puzzling over our President's curious inability to see twenty-one ISIS terrorists cutting off the heads of twenty-one Coptic Christians on a beach in Libya and call the horrible deed what it is -- an Islamist atrocity. Not, you will note, Islamic. By using the adjective Islamist, we are distinguishing this brutal and savage action from those billions who claim to be adherents of the Islamic religion.
President Obama: If You Like Your God, Keep Him
February 11, 2015: "Confession is good for the soul," said Mark Twain, "but it's bad for the reputation." Candidate Barack Obama in 2008 confessed to his top advisor, David Axelrod, "I'm just not very good at bull____ing." Actually, he was very good at it. He told millions of Americans that he believed marriage was "a sacred union" between a man and a woman. He answered about marriage in Rick Warren's question famed Civic Forum, going even further to say that "God is in the mix."
Common Core German Lesson
February 11, 2015: We haven't heard what the Common Core curriculum has planned for foreign language instruction, if anything. But we offer this German lesson as an introduction and a warning to all those who want central control over what is taught and what it thought in this country: "Wir sind nicht preußischen" We are not Prussians!
February 01, 2015: Good for Michelle Obama! She refused to cover up during a recent snap visit to Saudi Arabia. And our First Lady showed more grit than the entire Obama administration. She is also closer to a correct U.S. posture vis à vis the Mideast.
Liberals' Israel Crisis
January 30, 2015: "Netanyahu's Contempt for President Obama," reads the headline of the online version of Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen. The print edition toned it down somewhat, calling the Israeli prime minister's acceptance of a speaking invitation from Speaker Boehner unwise and an example of "Israel Goes Partisan."

Will GOP Stop Obama-Created Humanitarian Crisis on Southern Border
January 29, 2015: The 2014 midterm elections was one for the history books. When President Barack Obama said all of his policies were on the ballot, voters rushed to the voting booths to give Republicans an extraordinary landslide victory. And as we know now, one of the biggest motivating factors was Obama's illegal executive actions on immigration policy.
For Maryland's New Governor, Some Old Business
January 29, 2015: Many visitors to Maryland's historic Old State House are eager to see the Senate Chamber where Gen.

There are, as well, many other significant events associated with this beautiful and classically proportioned Capitol, America's oldest continuously used legislative building.
