At an intimate gathering in Berlin shortly after the National Socialists came to power, the author heard Hitler discuss his true intentions as they related to
One of the universal laws of economics is “Whatever you subsidize, you get more of it.” Joe Biden was asked if government subsidies have had an impact on tuition cost hikes. Here’s what the Vice President said: [G]overnment subsidies have impacted upon rising tuition costs. It’s a conundrum here. But
I just got back from speaking at a Christian Worldview conference. I addressed the issue of Christian activism and the excuses Christians use for not getting involved. While the conference was going on, news was coming out that the church may have awakened from its slumber: Catholic leaders . .
The President and his liberal compatriots were excited to see the Arab Spring bring democracy to a nation like Egypt. There is no doubt that the presidency of Hosni Mubarak was corrupt and needed to be changed. Riots in the streets don’t breed confidence. It would be like putting the
Charles Murray has been a keen observer of American society for nearly 30 years. He unraveled the welfare state in 1984 with his book Losing Ground: American Social Policy 1950–1980. The book that rocked the establishment was The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life (1994). Murray wrote
Over the weekend I watched an hour-long program on Joe Namath. Namath is best remembered for winning Super Bowl III against the heavily favored Baltimore Colts. Now we learn that a lot of teenagers (and adults) may not be able to decipher this year’s Super Bowl number. III is easy.
Christianity has been described as “Socially irrelevant, even if privately engaging.” Phil Johnson, executive Director of Grace to You, a Christian organization that features the preaching ministry of John MacArthur, writes that it’s wrong for Christians to lobby, rally voters, organize protests, and harness the evangelical movement for political clout.
The latest Newt-Reagan flap has me boiling. I’ve been in the debate business a long time, and if it’s one thing I’ve learned it’s this: Tell the truth about your opponent. As much as you might believe your opponent’s position is wacko, don’t lie about it or misrepresent it. It’s
The lies keep on coming. Someone once said that in “the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive
Hugh Jackman and Olivia Newton-John have thrown their support behind a campaign to legalize homosexual marriage in Australia. Jackman is best known for his portrayal of Wolverine in the X-Men film franchise. The series has been viewed as a metaphor for homosexual rights. People should not be persecuted for being
On a Sunday morning appearance on “Fox & Friends,” conservative columnist Ann Coulter tried unsuccessfully to explain why Romney got beaten by Newt Gingrich in the South Carolina GOP presidential primary. Here’s what she said: “Apparently, South Carolinians would rather have the emotional satisfaction of a snotty remark toward the president than
Building codes and zoning laws have been used to deny the right of churches to establish or continue the operation of Christian schools. The IRS tried to impose racial and ethnic quotas on Christian schools during the Carter administration to deny tax exemption to schools that refused to comply with
A coalition of African-American pastors and pro-family Christian and Jewish leaders held a press conference outside the headquarters of the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama, to protest the SPLC’s smearing of pro-family groups that oppose homosexual activism as “hate groups.” The SPLC has been co-opted by a Leftist,
I just got back from a recording session with the “Politichicks.” The four lovely young ladies asked me questions about the role Christianity played in the founding of America. In the short time I had, I addressed several topics. In order to answer the question, it’s necessary to get in
Christian pastors, you are now free to talk about politics from the pulpit. You can even endorse a candidate. And when your sermon is finished, you can register people to vote right in your church. Who gave you this right? Well, first, the men who drafted the Constitution, specifically, the
Secular Libertarians are working hard to make the case that their worldview “can fix what’s wrong with America.” In their book The Declaration of Independents, authors Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch argue for a Libertarian ethic based on the Declaration of Independence, a document they describe as “the most influential
Obamanomics has been described as Robin Hood economics, taking from the rich to give to the poor. Actually, Robin Hood took back from the king (and in some traditions of the story from corrupt clergymen) what had been taken from the people by the government. In terms of popular culture’s
As I was getting ready for work yesterday morning, I was watching the 1949 film The Red Danube. It stars Walter Pidgeon, Peter Lawford, a very young and trim Angela Landsbury (Murder She Wrote), Ethel Barrymore, and Janet Leigh. Pidgeon plays British Col. Michael “Hooky” Nicobar who is assigned to
