Obama, Illegal Immigration, & the Court

The Obama administration has had quite an innovative approach to the problem of illegal immigration. Whenever a state decides to enforce the federal laws that already exist, such as in Arizona where the law they passed was merely a reaffirmation of what the federal government should be doing, they get a rather strange reaction from Washington: The Obama Justice Department is so outraged by states trying to help that it has taken this all the way to the Supreme Court….

Proverbs 9:7-10

He who corrects a scoffer gets dishonor for himself, and he who reproves a wicked man gets insults for himself. Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you; reprove a wise man and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Going “Forward”

The campaigns are well underway now; no one is holding back. The Obama team apparently has come up with the new buzzword. In 2008, of course, it was “Hope and Change.” That obviously won’t work this time around because people would be thinking, “yeah, we do need a change—that might be our only hope.” So now Democrat legions are to be inspired by the one simple word “Forward,” which is supposed to be a positive message. However, it seems to… Read more »

The Moral Majority?

I believe there are… Read more »

A Hierarchy of Courage vs. a Partisan Political Ploy

President Obama seems to have stepped in it again. He has taken an event that should have been a uniting feature of the War on Terror—the killing of Osama bin Laden one year ago—and turned it into a partisan political ploy. A new ad has Bill Clinton—Bill Clinton, mind you—praising the courage and leadership of Obama as he made the decision to proceed with the raid that led to bin Laden’s death. Now, I’m not going to detract from the… Read more »

The Obama Record: It’s Broken

I can never run out of things to say about President Obama’s economic policies. He just keeps providing more to talk about. Take, for instance, his promotion of the so-called Buffett Rule lately, the one that thought it was a good idea to tax the rich more [as if that would have actually made a dent in the deficit]: Apparently, Congress wasn’t as convinced. It went down to defeat in the Senate. It was never a serious proposal for deficit… Read more »
