    Furloughing Faith?

    President Obama can't veto the First Amendment, so he's doing the next best thing: refusing to let his troops exercise it. In his most combative move yet, the administration warned Congress yesterday that it strongly opposes Rep. John Fleming's religious freedom amendment, which sailed through the House Armed Services Committee with bipartisan ... (more)

    A Majority of the Minority?

    If there's one Republican who can't be accused of obstructionism, it's Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). Two years after gaveling the House into session, members noticed a significant difference between John Boehner and his liberal predecessor. Unlike Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who used the majority to bludgeon the other side, this class of ... (more)

    To B or Not to B...

    If there's one thing the Obama administration has mastered, it's walking out on their responsibilities in court. Yesterday, the Justice Department sent its Plan B appeal to the same dust heap as its DOMA defense, telling reporters that it would give up its legal campaign after a couple of recent setbacks. The administration's policy, which for two ... (more)

    The Buck(eye) Stops Here on Abortion Funding

    Most Americans probably have no recollection of what happened on March 24, 2010 -- except maybe former Congressman Bart Stupak. He was in the White House that morning to watch the President sign a deceptively meaningless executive order that promised the government wouldn't fund abortion as part of the health care law. Given the subterfuge that's ... (more)

    Defending our Defenders

    You know that old saying, "Once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, and three times is a pattern?" Well, when it happens over a dozen times, it's a scandal -- especially when it's happening in our military. Almost every week, we're reading about a new incident of religious hostility in the ranks, as anti-Christian bullies punish people in ... (more)

    Straighten up and Fry Right!

    Chicken may not be bad for your health, but it's certainly hazardous to your military career. An Army Master Sergeant found that out the hard way when he tried to celebrate his August promotion by serving Chick-fil-A. The party, which happened to coincide with last summer's Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, was a private event -- paid for out of the ... (more)

    The Trouble with Barack's Barracks

    It must have taken a lot of restraint for America's top military leaders to sit through yesterday's Senate hearing on sexual assault and never say the one thing on everyone's minds: "We told you so." A little over two years ago, the same Senate ignored the warnings of many of the men assembled Tuesday and charged ahead with its repeal of "Don't ... (more)

    Air Force Tries to Brush off Christian Painter

    When it comes to religion, the Air Force really is the picture of intolerance. Yesterday, we told you about a California-based artist who was shocked to discover that one of his prints, the fifth in an inspirational "Heroes" series, was considered too offensive for an Idaho military base. The portrait, which -- until last week -- hung in the ... (more)

    Dance Video Shows off IRS Boogie Men

    The IRS isn't exactly waltzing away with your tax dollars -- but almost. A new video released by the House Ways and Means Committee shows that the IRS wasn't too busy attacking conservatives to cut a rug. The incriminating footage, taken during the agency's Anaheim conference, shows employees enjoying taxpayer-funded dance lessons. When they ... (more)

    HHS Plows through ObamaCare's Slush

    If there's one thing ObamaCare is ensuring, it's the growth of the President's agenda. While the rest of the country is focused on the law's biggest eyesores, Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been quietly sitting on a multi-billion dollar pile of undesignated cash. This slush fund, which FRC warned about as early as 2009, has more people's ... (more)
