The Dedicated Remnant

In case you missed this important announcement a couple of weeks ago from President Obama, let me remind you of it right now: the War on Terror is over! We’ve won! The threats have diminished to the point where we can officially declare it passé. I’m glad to be the bearer of such good news. Well, let’s be serious now. For a war to be over, both sides must agree it is over: Anyone who believes that Muslim radicalism is… Read more »

Our Departure from the Laws of God

Four people died in the Boston Marathon bombings and subsequent manhunt. Four people died in the Benghazi terrorist attack. We had wall-to-wall coverage of the first, virtually nothing on the second, although that may be changing. Hearings this week will highlight whistleblowers who have tales to tell about this administration’s attempt to cover up its incompetence and failure to act. That failure seems to be the result of lack of desire to call out Islamic terrorism for what it is… Read more »

Erecting Our Own Gallows

Yesterday’s post dealt with the ongoing Gosnell trial—the one many Americans have never heard of, thanks to the ideologically biased news media—and President Obama’s speech before Planned Parenthood, in which he pledged his unyielding support of abortion—without ever using the word, of course. Sometimes, the best political cartoons about an event appear after I’ve written about it. I think this one is particularly clear and direct: I don’t think it’s a stretch to believe Obama is far more concerned about… Read more »

Obama & Islamic Terrorism

When Nidal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar” and killed thirteen and wounded twenty-nine at Ft. Hood in 2009, the Obama administration refused to call it what it was: Islamic terrorism. The Department of Defense classified the attack as simply “workplace violence.” Remember the comical attempt by Janet Napolitano, our chief of Homeland Security, to rename Islamic terrorism as “man-caused disasters”? The September 11, 2012 Benghazi terror attack, which killed our ambassador and three others, was blamed on an obscure anti-Mohammed… Read more »

So Who Needs Pressure Cookers Anyway?

President Obama suffered a stunning defeat the other day when gun control legislation failed to pass Congress. His statement afterwards was vintage Obama: arrogant, whining, blaming. This has become a wearisome pattern these past four-plus years. The fact is, none of the proposed legislation would have done anything to prevent gun violence. The Boston bombers had unregistered guns. Boston has strict gun control laws. That worked well, didn’t it? How many times do we have to be shown that criminals… Read more »

Unfair & Unbalanced

As regulars readers of this blog know, one of my principal concerns is the manner in which the news media present—or fail to present—stories. A twin concern is the entertainment media, with its subtle undermining of Biblical morality in its programming. There are also times when the mainstream news media act almost like entertainment media. When it’s hard to tell the difference, you know we’re in deep trouble. The events of last week with the Boston Marathon bombing and the… Read more »

Passing Thoughts

There are just too many stories this morning, so I’ll offer some passing thoughts on a number of them. We have to begin with the Boston Marathon bombings. Unlike many of the liberal news anchors [forgive the redundancy], we need to withhold our speculations on who is responsible for the attacks that killed at least three. There is no need to rush into accusations. Wait and see where the evidence leads. Apparently, all the pressure on the media to cover… Read more »
