Actively Homosexual Ex-Vatican Officer Thinks He Kept His Vow of Celibacy

homosexuals vow of celibacy Full disclosure: I don’t think any officers of the church should be forced to take a vow of celibacy. That said, I think that any church officer who takes any vow of office should keep that vow. With that in mind, here’s the sad story of Krzysztof Charamsa, former officer of the Vatican: Less than a month after Monsignor Krzysztof Charamsa of Poland was fired from his job at the Vatican office immediately after coming out, the high-ranking priest has now been defrocked for continuing “to Read more [...]

Obama Speaks Out on Criminal Justice Reform

blind-justice Over the Halloween weekend President Obama used his weekly address to speak out on criminal justice reform. Over the last few years, conservative (and libertarian) members of the GOP have led the way on pushing for criminal justice, and recently President Obama and other Democrats have grabbed on to their coattails in an effort to win a few more votes. (Check out the GOP efforts on criminal justice reform here, here, here and here.) The President has made criminal justice reform an important part Read more [...]

New York's Failed Obamacare Co-Op Deliberately Misled Government...?

obamacare burning New York insurance regulators said Friday the financial condition of Health Republic of New York, the largest of 23 health insurance co-ops established by a $2.4 billion Obamacare program, is “substantially worse than the company previously reported in its filings.” It is unclear if the co-op deliberately misled state regulators in their original filings, or if regulators found evidence of financial wrongdoing while they tried to close down the defunct non-profit. The co-op’s insolvency Read more [...]

Concealed Carrier Shoots, Kills Masked Armed Robber

drawing concealed weapon An armed robber came in a Chicago neighborhood store and announced to an employee there that he was robbing the place. He ordered one of the workers to the back of the store at gunpoint, presumably to steal the cash that was in the safe. Unfortunately for the robber, there was a customer who had walked in during the robbery who also was a licensed concealed carrier. He sprang into action, pulled his firearm, and shot the armed robber, killing him. No one else was hurt. This is how things Read more [...]

"Irresponsible and Unpatriotic": Obama to Double National Debt to $20 Trillion

obama shrug If you recall, it was then-presidential candidate Barack Obama who criticized then-President Bush for raising the debt ceiling and for accruing so much national debt. Remember when he said this? It was irresponsible and unpatriotic for Bush to add $4 trillion to the national debt. But it’s okay for Obama to add nearly $10 trillion. When he does it, it’s okay. He is, after all, still trying to clean up the mess that Bush left behind. It’s all Bush’s fault. As the Washington Times Read more [...]

A Letter to Melissa Harris-Perry Regarding 'Hard Workers'

melissa harris-perry Dear Melissa Harris-Perry, I was watching your show on MSNBC when you rebuked Alfonso Aguilar for using the term "hard worker" to describe Representative Paul Ryan. You told him: "I just want to pause on one thing, because I don’t disagree with you that I actually think Mr Ryan is a great choice for this role. But I want us to be super careful when we use the language ‘hard worker.’ Because I actually keep an image of folks working in cotton fields on my office wall, because it is a Read more [...]

No One Really Wants States’ Rights Because No One Really Wants Local Accountability

tax states rights It’s that simple. States’ Rights advocates all over the country talk about how states have no authority or power and how the federal government has subsumed powers that do not properly belong to it in the Constitution. But the most important piece of this discussion revolves around taxation, and it’s where even some of the most ardent states’ rights folks start to falter. I believe that the only way to return power to local governments is for local governments to be the only tax-collecting Read more [...]

Paying the Fee to See the Private Grave of Karl Marx

Highgate_Cemetery Karl Marx I love these kinds of stories—when the incongruity between concept and reality exposes the ideological cracks in leftist thinking. It turns out that the privately owned cemetery, Highgate Cemetery in London, where Karl Marx is buried charges a fee to see his memorial. Karl Marx, the father of communism and a zealous proponent of the abolition of private property. Yes. That Karl Marx. His grave and memorial site are a paid attraction, and lots of people are willing to pay to see it. That’s Read more [...]

Rand Paul Sums Up the Left’s Climate Change Problem: How Much is Man-Made and How Much is Nature?

rand paul GOP candidate for President and Senator from Kentucky Rand Paul (R-KY) was a guest this past week on Glenn Beck’s the Blaze. During a long and winding conversation where Paul was able to answer a host of questions with one word “yes or no” answers, the candidate for president took a few moments to explain his views on climate change. His response is brilliant and it really exposes the religious nature of the climate change community, as they seem to discount natural climate change altogether Read more [...]

CNN: 10,000 Kids Killed Every Year by Guns

unnamed-35 CNN political commentator Sally Kohn threw out a statistic about guns and children that was a little farfetched, to say the least. She said that 10,000 kids are killed every year by guns. The title of her piece was “We regulate toys, so why not guns?” Her main argument was that since it doesn’t take much for the government to outlaw toys or appliances when they’re found to cause injury or death, gun manufacturers should be treated the same. For example, she said: Recently, my CNN colleague Read more [...]

Ted Cruz: "Climate Change is Not Science – It’s Religion"

unnamed-34 Liberals hate hearing this, but deep down, they know it’s the truth. The theory of manmade global warming, or climate change, or period of increased climatic unpredictability, is not actually based on science. It’s not unlike a belief in a false religion. Their main premise is their belief that humans are causing the earth to heat up at a rapid pace. That’s their first premise. Then all the data they accumulate are then squeezed and twisted in order to fit in that first premise. Then their Read more [...]
