The Biggest Threat to America’s Future Is the Media

Written by Rick Hayes

The United States of America is by far the most powerful nation on Planet Earth, spending about as much on defense as the entire rest of the world.  According to a report on globalization from Credit Suisse, the U.S. has maintained its position as the world’s strongest military.  As an example, although Russia has the most substantial number of tanks, approximately 15,000, with the U.S. coming in at around 8,000, the U.S.… Continue Reading

America Has Always Been Politically Divided

Written by Pat Hickey

You got that right, Al.

Party-line, lock-step, propaganda-swallowing Americans have been with us always. New York Loyalists wanted nothing to do with the Sons of Liberty, and now Deplorables and the Resistance spit at one another.

Can’t we all get along?

Nope. Never have.

When I was ten years old, Chicagoans had the choice of reading these daily newspapers:

  • Chicago American, 1900–1939 (became the Herald-American and then Today)
  • Chicago Daily News, 1876–1978
  • Chicago Sun-Times, 1948–present
  • Chicago Tribune, 1847–present
  • Chicago Defender, 1905–present
  • Southtown Economist 1906 to 2014 (swallowed by the Chicago Tribune and Sun-Times News Group)

Now, at the ripe milestone of 66 years, this Chicagoan has the choice of not reading the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times.… Continue Reading

Return of the Feckless Chick-Fil-A-Phobes

Written by Michelle Malkin

Move over, Trump Derangement Syndrome. Another unhinged liberal pathology is back:

Chick-fil-A-phobia.

Perhaps, in the interest of public health, the CDC should launch a weekly C-F-A-P surveillance report to map the recurrence of this culturally infectious disease. Early-onset symptoms include fear of pressure-cooked poultry, allergic reaction to waffle potato fries and an irrational hatred of cow costumes. Anti-Christian prejudice and coastal elitism are common comorbidities associated with this debilitating progressive condition.

Ground zero for the latest outbreak?… Continue Reading

White House Bible Study Leader Criticized for Views on Homosexuality, Gender Roles, Catholic Church

Written by Michael Gryboski

The leader of a weekly Bible study that includes prominent members of the White House like Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions is garnering controversy for his views on social and religious issues.

Ralph Drollinger, a former basketball player-turned-pastor who oversees Capitol Ministries, which ministers to public officials, oversees the Bible study every Wednesday.

On Sunday, the BBC published a report that was critical of the Bible study, and put a spotlight on Drollinger’s views, such as his biblical views on homosexuality and complementarianism.… Continue Reading

Chicago Tribune Endorsement of Pinocchio Rauner

Written by Laurie Higgins

The Chicago Tribune has endorsed Bruce Rauner despite his lousy track record, his lousy debate performance, and his penchant for bald-faced lying (as amply demonstrated in his campaign ads).

The Trib sees Rauner’s resolve in opposing Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan as his chief accomplishment. But surely the editorial board knows that resolve in the service of principle is—along with her command of public policy—one of Ives’ most notable attributes.

So, why endorse Rauner who was named the “Worst Republican Governor in America” by National Review?… Continue Reading

Southern Poverty Law Center Is a Hate Group

Written by Josh Goldstein

Like many leftist organizations, the Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC, started out with good intentions. It was founded in 1971 by Morris Dees and Joseph Levin and is headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama.  The Southern Poverty Law Center rightly condemned, as did conservatives such as the great William F. Buckley and Ronald Reagan, the American Nazi Party and the Democrat-affiliated Ku Klux Klan.

A favorite SPLC tactic was suing Klan affiliated organizations for their crimes and then distributing the money to the victims.  … Continue Reading

I Wish I Were as Bad a Christian as Mike Pence

Written by David Limbaugh

I’ve repeatedly said that though President Trump gives his leftist enemies plenty of fodder in his tweets to attack him, they would malign any Republican president unless he totally capitulated to their demands — and switched parties. Indeed, they always have.

The liberals say Trump is such an awful person, which apparently excuses their monomaniacal obsession with destroying his presidency. Yet Vice President Mike Pence is one of the finest people around, and they can’t stand him, either.… Continue Reading

Chicago Tribune Endorses Feckless Bruce Rauner for Governor

Written by Laurie Higgins

The Chicago Tribune just endorsed “No-Social-Agenda” Rauner for governor. Yes, the man named the “Worst Republican Governor in America” by National Review, the man who admitted that after three years in office he’s “not in charge,” and the man who went down in ignominious and humiliating defeat in his debate with Jeanne Ives was just endorsed by the Chicago Tribune.

The Trib’s endorsement of Pinocchio Rauner reveals that the issues that matter most to the Trib are the dismissively called “social issues.” Just two weeks ago, the editorial board waxed enthusiastic about Ives’ debate performance and her command of policy.Continue Reading

Chicago Tribune Dumps on Ives

Written by Laurie Higgins

Last week the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board, columnist Eric Zorn, columnist Rex Huppke, and “reporter” Kim Janssen all took shots at gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives’ campaign ad.

The Ives campaign released an ad that criticized policies using actors to depict the constituencies Bruce Rauner serviced through his boneheaded Leftist decisions, and Leftists became apoplectic. Actually, they mainly cared about the depiction of a cross-dressing man—or what the Left risibly calls a “transwoman” to conceal the existential and immutable reality of his sex.… Continue Reading

Of Immigration and S—hole Countries

Disclaimer: In the following essay a vulgar term, attributed to president Trump, is used once to frame the discussion.  If a coarse word offends you or you think it inappropriate for a Christian writer to use such words, please close the article now.

By Jonathon Clay de Hale

The news cycles so fast these days that president Trump’s alleged denigration of Haiti and Africa using a repugnant term is already fading from view. But since the topic of immigration is front and center again, it’s worth pausing for a moment to think through the gist of his comment.… Continue Reading
