W. SCOTT LAMB: Theodore Roosevelt's famous quote about college

- The Washington Times

If your recent high school graduate desperately wants to do something other than head directly into college, challenge them to "take up and read" (in the words of St. Augustine) and spend the next year reading the Bible several times from cover to cover. Don't take it from me though. That comes from a former POTUS!

How Washington Shaped Chuck Colson

"How now shall we live?" "By embracing God's truth, understanding the physical and moral order he has created, lovingly contending for that truth with our neighbors, then having the courage to live it out in every walk of life. Boldly and, yes, joyously."

The new currency of offense

There's a new currency gaining prominence in American culture; it's the currency of offense. This currency is based on the perceived value of victimization and people buy, sell and trade with it every day. The pictures on the bills change with the daily news. This particular currency uses the leverage of impugned guilt, and promises gratifying profits in the form of entitlements, forced cultural acceptance and indignation.

Third Planned Parenthood video released

- The Washington Times

This video contains material shot from within an abortion clinic. As such, it shows in much more graphic detail the reality of what it means to harvest material from aborted babies. The glass of wine and salad are gone, and the brutal nature of the business is on full display. The content of the video is disturbing.

FILE - In this May 9, 2014 file photo, Russian President Vladimir Putin heads to speak at a navy parade marking  Victory Day in Sevastopol, Crimea. Angry with the West's response over Ukraine, Russia is moving rapidly to bolster ties with North Korea in a diplomatic nose-thumbing that could complicate the U.S.-led effort to squeeze Pyongyang into giving up its nuclear weapons program. Russia's proactive strategy in Asia- which also involves cozying up to China and had been dubbed "Putin's Pivot" - began years ago as Moscow's answer to Washington's much touted rebalancing of its military forces in the Pacific.

Russia unveils new naval doctrine, but can it afford it?

Sunday was Navy Day in Russia, celebrating the power and history of the Russian fleet. The Kremlin used the occasion to announce a new naval doctrine on its website which lays out an ambitious plan to modernize and reconstitute a blue water Russian naval force. Although it sounds powerful on paper, the real question with oil trending below $50 a barrel, is whether Russia can afford this agenda.

This might be the only way to stop Donald Trump

I was there in the audience when Donald Trump made his unfortunate comments about John McCain's war record as a POW. And then followed it up by admitting to a room of thousands of evangelicals he'd never sought God's forgiveness for anything in his life.

The point of such deception is to subsequently tell everyone what you had done. The point is to reveal, not to hide. The hiding is merely a preamble to a great unveiling of the truth -- in this case, the truth that Planned Parenthood has far surpassed Mengele in cold-blooded, reptilian ghoulishness.
