  • Chuck Norris: What America Needs Now
    Forty-five years ago, there was a day like few others that rallied Americans and changed America forever. Yet I could find but one or two news stories about that momentous occasion and triumph. Do you remember what it was? It's the type of event that America needs now, maybe more than ever before.

     

    If you're old enough, you remember July 20, 1969, when 123 million of roughly 200 million Americans were riveted to their televisions, watching astronaut Neil Armstrong 240,000 miles from Earth. As he stepped off the Eagle -- the lunar landing module -- to become the first human to walk on the moon, Armstrong's words were heard by over a billion people around the globe: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." 



  • Bryan Fischer: Gov. Perry can and should give arrest authority to National Guard

    National Guard on the southern border: According to today’s New York Times, Gov. Perry has the authority to grant arrest powers to his National Guard troops on the southern border. And he should do it. The purpose of a “well-regulated militia,” according to the Second Amendment, is to protect “the security of a free State,” as in the state of Texas. If it takes arrest powers and the force of arms for the governor to protect the sovereignty of his state, Gov. Perry not only has the authority but indeed the responsibility to direct the Guard to apprehend and detain as necessary. 

    He doesn’t need permission from the federal government for this. His permission and authority come directly from the Constitution, the supreme law of the land.



  • Dr. Jerry Newcombe: Explaining the “Sacred Right of Conscience” to the Left

    It has been about three weeks now since the Hobby Lobby decision, and based on all the brouhaha from the left against the decision, you would think that the Supreme Court had virtually overruled the Constitution. 

    The case: Should a business be forced to provide contraceptives, including abortifacients, for their employees, even if that violates the conscience? 5 to 4 on the High Court said no.



  • Bryan Fischer: Marco Rubio really, really, really wants to be the GOP nominee

    Marco Rubio made it unmistakably clear yesterday that he wants to be the GOP nominee in 2016 so badly he is willing to touch the third rail of American politics (the radical homosexual agenda) to get there. In fact, he wants to be president badly enough he’s actually willing to campaign on the GOP platform. 

    Speaking at the Catholic University of America, Rubio said that defining marriage is a matter our Constitution leaves to the states, and no judge has the moral or legal right to disenfranchise voters who have decided this issue at the ballot box.



  • David Limbaugh: Moral Equivalence Is Usually Moral Negligence

    Efforts to proclaim moral equivalence are not always misguided; sometimes each side is equally at fault or close enough. But these efforts are often misguided and unhelpful -- and sometimes harmful.

    Throughout my life, there has been an increasing trend to attach moral equivalence to all kinds of disputes and conflicts, such as Israel vs. Hamas, which is the subject of a future column. I assume this is mostly an outgrowth of our culture's descent into moral relativism, but it's also a product of our intellectual laziness. 



  • Bryan Fischer: Constitution says Gov. Perry can militarize border with National Guard

    An often overlooked phrase in the Second Amendment protects Gov. Rick Perry’s right to militarize his southern border with National Guard troops. 

    Here’s the complete text of the Second Amendment (emphasis mine): 

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.  

    In other words, this amendment was enacted to ensure the right of the individual states to protect their sovereign liberty and their sovereign borders with their own armed forces.



  • Bryan Fischer: Obama’s executive order unconstitutional on every level

    On Monday, President Obama issued an executive order which violates every part of the Constitution it touches. Not, of course, that this is unusual for this president.

    His order requires every company, large or small, religious or non-religious, to hire men who want to wear dresses, earrings, lipsticks and panty hose to work or face crippling sanctions.



  • Bryan Fischer: Obama politicizes air tragedy to promote sexual deviancy

    About 100 AIDS researchers died a tragic death in the Malaysian airliner disaster. They were on their way to an international conference devoted to the subject of dealing with the AIDS epidemic. 

    President Obama, taking a page out of the Alinsky-ite “never let a good crisis go to waste” playbook, shamelessly and tackily used the occasion to promote the legitimacy of sexual deviancy.



  • David Limbaugh: Has the Right Lost Its Will to Fight?
    I don't think Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against President Obama right now, but I also don't think that considering the idea is "crazy talk."

     

    The man has, in my view and that of many others, committed multitudinous impeachable offenses, and we need to strenuously object and bring it to the public's attention every chance we get. The idea of turning our heads and looking the other way is repugnant. 



  • Bryan Fischer: Evangelicals and their biblical imbalance on immigration

    Russell Moore and other evangelical leaders promote amnesty through their group, the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), a group which has the socialist money of George Soros lubricating its gears. 

    They frequently cite verses from the Scripture that instruct followers of Yahweh to care for the alien. Moore and others cite these Scriptures as if nobody in America is obeying them, but we are. Our immigration policy already is the most generous, open-handed and open-hearted policy on the planet.



  • Dr. Jerry Newcombe: Our Lawless President Opens the Borders

    Our founders based our nation on the rule of law. But now lawlessness is becoming the rule. One of the Bible’s definitions for sin fits here: “Sin is lawlessness” (1 John 3:4). 

    The border crisis is a strong case in point. Congress said no to the DREAM Act, but the president has a phone and a pen, and he says yes.



  • Ray Rooney, Jr.: Palatable
    Is it the Church’s job to make God palatable to the world?  One wonders if that is not exactly the adopted mission of modern day Christianity.  The world doesn’t think it is in need of saving.  So a God who sends His Son to die on a cross “that the world might be saved through him” (John 3:17) is unsavory.  A more palatable message is that Christ came into the world to proclaim universal acceptance before God.  Granted, you have to ignore troublesome passages like Colossians 1:20 that speaks of “peace by the blood of his cross” but ignore it many in the Church do.

  • Bryan Fischer: The Pledge of Allegiance and Muslim immigration

    To continue the practice of virtually unrestrained Islamic immigration is to pursue a practice that is guaranteed to further Balkanize the United States and to guarantee continued social unrest. 

    This is for one simple reason: the implacable hostility of Islam toward anything Jewish or Christian. Muslims - in league with neo-Nazis, by the way - have firebombed synagogues in France and trapped hundreds of Jews inside their houses of worship. Together, Muslims and neo-Nazis as one chant “The Jews Are Beasts,” in harmony with the teaching of Muhammad that Jews are nothing more than apes and pigs.



  • Dr. Ray Pritchard: The Coming Evangelical Divide

    The evangelical movement is about to divide.

    Nothing could be clearer.

    It’s true that we have often disagreed over things like church government, views of the Second Coming, baptism, lifestyle habits, worship style and musical preference. But those differences, though deeply felt, were intramural debates over secondary issues.

    This time we are going to divide over a primary issue. 



  • Bryan Fischer: Illegal alien tsunami deliberate part of Obama’s anti-America agenda

    Pundits have been debating whether the humanitarian crisis on our southern border demonstrates Obama’s incompetence or his limitations. 

    I would suggest neither. I suggest that the deluge of illegal alien children, a deluge of biblical proportions, is neither innocent nor accidental but a part of the president’s deliberate and malevolent plan to fundamentally transform America.



  • David Limbaugh: Obama the Problem Creator
    Only if we understand that Wednesday was "Opposite Day" can we comprehend President Obama's bizarre remarks in Texas concerning our border crisis.

     

    He said he had asked Gov. Rick Perry, "Are (members of Congress) more interested in politics, or are they more interested in solving the problem? ... If the preference is for politics, then it won't be solved."
