A recent phenomenon in American politics amid the conclaves of the media and academic elites is the stultifying debate over an outgoing president’s so-called “Legacy.” The nation now finds itself embroiled in this conversation as none other than Barack Obama, by his innumerable self-serving speeches, countless appearances on a multitude of media platforms and myriad gatherings with fawning supporters, has attempted to establish a positive spin on his legacy. He has far exceeded anything the previous occupants of the Oval Office have done to reinforce their image as they leave the White House behind. That he feels compelled to do so is indicative of the fact that Obama knows his presidency will go down in history as a monumental failure.
There is little doubt, except to his die-hard supporters (which includes a vast majority of the mainstream media), that his failures are legion. … Continue Reading

I am pleased to report that Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis has been released from jail. But I have been very disappointed by the parade of leading Republicans — Donald Trump, Governor Jeb Bush, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, Governor Chris Christie and others — who are distancing themselves from Davis.
This sorry episode is yet another example of our side playing by one set of rules while the other side plays by its own.
When the law was the Defense of Marriage Act, the president and attorney general of the United States refused to enforce it.

Biden was challenging prospective Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson’s assertion last week that homosexuality is a choice … a learned behavior — not a gender or inherent biological state of being.
“A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they’re gay,” the acclaimed neurosurgeon told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question.”
Apologizing later for his “choice of language” on a Facebook post, Carson wrote that even though he opposes same-sex “marriage” due to his Christian beliefs, individual states should be able to choose whether it’s legal.… Continue Reading

According to CNN writer John Blake, President Barack Obama is “a religious pioneer” who, in the opinion of some scholars and pastors, is “also expanding the definition of who can be a Christian by challenging the religious right’s domination of the national stage.”
To be candid, and with due respect to the office of the president, Obama should be viewed as a religious apostate more than a religious pioneer. He has shown an extraordinary disregard for society’s most innocent and vulnerable members (babies in the womb), he has misused the Bible to defend the radical redefinition of marriage, and he has trashed religious freedoms with his health care mandates to the point that groups as disparate as Hobby Lobby and Catholic hospitals are suing the government.… Continue Reading
