TownHall - 27 min 34 sec ago
While listening to Bill Bennetts radio program the other morning, a caller, respectfully, yet passionately, expressed his incredulity over the fact that anyone continues to take the Bill Kristols and Max Boots (and, by implication, the Bill Bennetts) of the world seriously when it comes to issues pertaining to American foreign policy vis--vis the Middle East, particularly Iraq. 2014-09-18T16:03:00-04:00 2014-09-18T21:15:14Z Jack Kerwick

Where Have All the Allies Gone?

If unchecked, the Islamic State will turn what is left of the nations of the Middle East into a huge Mogadishu-like tribal wasteland, from the Syrian Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf. And they will happily call the resulting mess a caliphate. 2014-09-18T00:01:00-04:00 2014-09-18T21:15:14Z Victor Davis Hanson

Fed Policy is Turning into a Joke

TownHall - 27 min 35 sec ago
The Yellen Fed seems determined to keep pushing for some artificial economic growth. Doing the same thing over and over, while expecting different results, is apparently NOT the definition of insanity Its just Federal Reserve policy. 2014-09-18T00:01:00-04:00 2014-09-18T21:15:14Z Ransom Notes Radio

The Challenge: What "Runs in the Family"

TownHall - 27 min 35 sec ago
If you could take any aspect from the family you grew up in and bring it into the family you have created, what would it be? A certain holiday tradition? The way your home was always filled with visitors? The friendship and affection your parents had for each other? Or maybe even the tough, but refining love they showed you? 2014-09-18T00:01:00-04:00 2014-09-18T21:15:14Z Rebecca Hagelin

Why do Americans Hate America?

TownHall - 27 min 35 sec ago
After some hand-wringing over British citizens who have chosen to fight with ISIS, Prime Minister David Cameron said he thinks one reason for the defection is that too many of the defectors have forgotten what it means to be British. As a means of fighting the radicalization of young people, he wants all of Britains schools to again teach British values." 2014-09-18T00:01:00-04:00 2014-09-18T21:15:14Z Cal Thomas

We the Sheeple and Baaaaad Government

It seems we have a government who increasingly, since the establishment of this great nation, thinks that in order to promote the general welfare it needs to generally promote welfare for all. 2014-09-18T00:01:00-04:00 2014-09-18T21:15:14Z Ryan Bomberger

An Idiotic Government with Idiotic Goals

A disturbing story came and went, barely noticed a few weeks ago. InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is being unceremoniously booted off the campuses of Californias 23 state universities.

Smells and Politics

TownHall - 27 min 35 sec ago
As a life-long, occasionally conscripted political volunteer, I've encountered my share of smells along the political way. Fried chicken in the summer at church picnics and BBQ on Fourth of July in Newnan, Georgia, (with the argument about which BBQ was better -- Melear's or Sprayberry's). Then there was the smell of glue from the backs of the envelopes we were sending. (Yes, if there are enough freshly licked envelopes you can smell the sticky, sweet smell of the glue). 2014-09-18T00:01:00-04:00 2014-09-18T21:15:14Z Jackie Gingrich Cushman

I'm Living Large, but It's an Illusion

TownHall - 27 min 35 sec ago
A few months ago I made a trip to attend my daughter Isabelle's commencement at an institution of higher learning. Having no apparel to signify my investment in this particular school, I entered the bookstore and found a shirt emblazoned with its name. Too impatient to try the shirt on, I eyeballed the medium and the large and decided the medium would fit. 2014-09-18T00:01:00-04:00 2014-09-18T21:15:14Z Steve Chapman

We hear where she goes. We hear what she wears. We hear how much she makes. But what we dont ever seem to hear about Hillary Clinton is what she would do as president.

Prayers and Preparation

TownHall - 27 min 35 sec ago
A trial is a thing to be avoided whenever possible. When it becomes impossible to avoid, it consumes you. You lose a measure of control over your life and you just have to trust your attorneys and follow their orders. In March, my attorneys ordered me to sit down and read my deposition, which was taken back in 2009. They warned me that in my trial, which was scheduled to start on March 17, 2014, opposing counsel might try an old trick on me. They might just ask the same questions from that deposition, simply for the purpose of eliciting an inconsistent statement that could impeach my credibility. 2014-09-18T00:01:00-04:00 2014-09-18T21:15:14Z Mike Adams
