What Julianne Moore’s rejection of God really means

Actress Julianne Moore's declaration last week to The Hollywood Reporter magazine that she doesn't believe in God is making some news and getting her roundly condemned on social media by many who purport to be people of faith. Published February 2, 2015

Payback from the IRS

The Internal Revenue Service's woes did not begin or end with Lois Lerner and the agency's targeting of political opponents with punitive action. Earlier this month we became painfully aware (again) that political games and punishing the taxpayer appear to be the burgeoning raison d'etre of the tax-collecting agency.

Terror undeterred by mass surveillance

The failure of the massive surveillance state established by liberal western governments is becoming more and more apparent. One such failure was accidentally confirmed by both Sen. Dianne Feinstein and House Speaker John Boehner in just the last week. Published January 19, 2015

Saying no to terror as the new normal

As the world continues to reel from the horror of Islamist terrorism in France, one common refrain from commentators and “experts” is that this is now the new normal, that we must be prepared to deal with so-called lone-wolf terrorism for decades. Published January 12, 2015

Hillary Clinton’s jaded sense of justice

The Benghazi massacre most certainly deserves to be a subject Hillary Rodham Clinton should be held accountable for and never allowed to forget. Yet there is another, even more recklessly dangerous thing that will affect Mrs. Clinton's designs on the White House: her attitude in general toward America's enemies. Published December 22, 2014

Another Obamacare blow to personal privacy

Get ready to fight back: Last week, the Health and Human Services Department announced a plan to share your medical records with over 35 federal agencies — all in the name of "health care," of course. All in the name of "efficiency," the favorite excuse used by fascists wherever they appear. Published December 15, 2014

Ferguson and the useful application of mayhem

For President Obama and his cronies, everything is political and everyone is a pawn. After a grand jury declined to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, the White House and Department of Justice immediately pushed the meme that the issue in Ferguson was about racism and policing. While a legitimate issue, in reality it is a symptom of the systemic problem of big-government-sponsored poverty, made worse by the liberal agenda so dear to Mr. Obama himself.

It's the Ebola incompetence, stupid

There are a few things in the world that we know for sure, including the existence of Ebola, what those infected go through, and the fact that, as of now, there is no cure or official universal treatment that mitigate its fatality rate said to be around 70 percent. Published October 20, 2014

These people who traveled to Syria to join and support an army of psychopathic mass murderers, will simply be "tracked" once they get back on our soil. Published October 13, 2014

Containing the facts about Ebola

As the Ebola crisis unfolds here in the United States, it's becoming painfully obvious why the American people can't trust their own government. Published October 6, 2014

If the government is paying the bill, it's best to die young

Much is being made of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel's essay in The Atlantic, "Why I Hope to Die at 75," where he argues that dying at 75 would be best for everyone. He's entitled to his opinion, of course, but what makes this especially concerning is his role as an architect of the so-called "Affordable Care Act" (Obamacare). Published September 29, 2014

How ISIS already threatens America
