    Omnibus or Omnibust? Congress Debates Trillion-Dollar Deal

    This New Year's, one person who isn't going on a diet is Uncle Sam. In the spending package released yesterday, Congress blows by the old sequester caps, giving leaders a trillion-dollar rope to string along taxpayers. The bill, which at 1,582 pages is about as long as the local phone book, was more than three and half years in the making. But not ... (more)

    Obama's Same-sex Marriage Ring Leader

    Justice Secretary Eric Holder was already held in contempt of Congress -- but a Supreme Court reprimand may not be far behind. Regardless of where the justices fall on the question of same-sex "marriage," they probably had to pick their jaws up off the floor after the country's chief law enforcer put the Court's latest marriage decisions through ...

    On Abortion, GOP Puts Tax Dollars in Life Savings

    Sending in your taxes shouldn't mean signing over your beliefs. But when it comes to issues like abortion, that's exactly what the Obama administration is asking America to do. As pro-lifers, we have fought to give the medical community a way out of procedures they object to. As taxpayers, we deserve that same protection. No one should be forced ... (more)

    Wedding Bills Ring on Capitol Hill

    It's been a convenient talking point of the media that Republicans haven't said much about the marriage debate since the Supreme Court's summer ruling. Today, they let their legislation do the talking. After a string of bad court decisions, Congress is stepping in to do the job that five justices did not: protect state marriage laws. Under the ...

    Gatesway to Truth

    If President Obama was hoping to regain his political footing in 2014, a new "tell-all" book just made that job a lot tougher. The 594-page PR nightmare is set to hit shelves next Tuesday, but the excerpts are already sending shockwaves through D.C. The book, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, is a lengthy look back at Defense Secretary Robert ... (more)

    How Does the Army Spell Extremism? S-P-L-C

    The United States may not negotiate with terrorists, but it certainly hasn't minded using curriculum tied to them in official Army briefings. Despite being linked in federal court to a case of domestic terrorism, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has been a go-to "source" of the Obama Pentagon in a string of military training sessions. ...

    Hill Takes the Hypocritic Oath with New Health Plans

    It may be a new year, but there's nothing new about the frustration over ObamaCare. For millions of Americans, the headaches they suffered when they woke up on January 1st were purely financial. Starting last Wednesday, the government officially flipped the switch on its health care exchanges, turning on the coverage for hundreds of thousands of ... (more)

    In Thy Dark Streets Shineth

    Christmas is the time when Heaven and Nature sing. And it's the time for us to reflect on the greatest gift of all-the gift of new life in Christ. We often read of the humble stable in which our Savior was born.  It was indeed a rude, unfinished place. We might think it strange for the King of Kings to be born in a lowly habitation for animals. ... (more)

    Fa La La La Law to Protect Our Troops

    Long before "Duck Dynasty," other camouflaged Americans were being persecuted for their beliefs: U.S. service members. Now, thanks to Congress, our brave men and women will finally have the legislative armor they need. It took until almost midnight, but when the Senate passed the Defense Authorization bill, it was worth the wait. After a year-long ... (more)

    A Beard's Eye View of Intolerance

    A&E wanted a reality show. Trouble is, they weren't ready for the realities that came with it. Anyone who's watched "Duck Dynasty" (and there are close to 90 million of you) knows the Robertson family stands unapologetically for Christ. And if they didn't know, they found out in May, when patriarch Phil Robertson told the network, "God and ... (more)
