    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)

    Salsa Subsidy Highlights Worst Queso Scenario

    Why go to the mall when you can do your shopping on the floor of Congress? Over the past 12 months, plenty of members have dipped into taxpayers' pockets to deliver gifts to the special interests in their lives. And, thanks to Senator Tom Coburn's (R-Okla.) annual "Wastebook," Americans are learning just how generous they were forced to be. As ... (more)

    ObamaCare Drag Show Aims to Heel

    It looks like the President really is skirting the issues with ObamaCare. Thanks to a new partnership with a Louisiana drag queen show, the administration thinks it's finally tapping into a market it needs to boost enrollment numbers. With the help of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a troupe of transvestites called Wednesday Night Tea has ... (more)

    I Now Pronounce You Man and Wives...

    Turns out, marriage isn't about two people who love each other -- it's about three or five or six. That was Judge Clark Waddoups's opinion in the most explosive ruling the media isn't talking about. Late last week, the U.S. District Judge's ruling should have kicked off the evening news in every major market across America. Instead, his 91-page ... (more)

    Troops, Trouble, and Treasure

    The service members tuning in to tomorrow's Army-Navy game at Lincoln Financial Field may have another reason to cheer. Before jetting off to celebrate Christmas, House members delivered their own package: a Defense Authorization bill that takes some of the uncertainty out of military pay, weapons programs, conscience protections, and other key ...

    Secrecy Clause Plays Santa Claus to Abortion Crowd

    Don't expect Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Congressman John Shimkus (R-Ill.) to be sharing a cup of Christmas wassail anytime soon. The two leaders got into a heated exchange during the HHS chief's latest turn in the House's witness chair. In a scene eerily similar to October 30 when Sebelius first testified, Shimkus pressed the ObamaCare boss ... (more)

    Up on the Hill, There Arose Such a Clatter...

    Senator Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) party got a bench for Christmas -- a federal one. That's the unfortunate effect of the Left's latest power grab, which yesterday yielded its first prize: a radical appointment to the D.C. Circuit Court. Two months ago, the nomination of Patricia Millett, an anti-Christian, anti-marriage ideologue, was a nonstarter ... (more)

    Doc the Halls with Fewer Health Plans...

    The weather may be chilly, but it's nothing compared to people's reactions to ObamaCare. This month, the only thing falling faster than the temperature is the number of the new law's supporters. Making matters worse, the policy's biggest defectors seem to be the ones most crucial to it: the medical community. Thousands of doctors are walking ... (more)
