Who Settled Science? (and how you can too…)
By   |   10.19.15
"The science is settled." It's becoming an incessant catchphrase. More and more frequently, this simple statement is used as conversational pepper-spray to discourage contention and dissuade any who would continue to press their objection to the status quo. Those foolhardy enough to persist in their dissent are often labeled science-deniers; which, in today's culture of scientism, is tantamount to being branded with the Scarlet Periodic Symbol and cast from the village.
Tarry Not For the Sunshine

The housing market wasn’t the only bubble which burst in 2008. It was the first time many Christian conservatives realized just how much had changed and how far afield we had corporately strayed. Not only were our most stable assets,...
Unbroken, American Sniper — Fantastic True Stories
By   |   12.26.14
There are a number of Americans of which every young boy and girl should learn. George Washington, Abigail Adams, Sam Houston, Frederick Douglass, Theodore Roosevelt, and Louis Zamperini. Zamperini (or “Zamp” to his friends) first achieved celebrity as track athlete...
Storage Wars: The Midterm Edition
By   |   12.08.14
Now that the heady rush of jubilation has faded from the election, it’s time to take stock of what we actually achieved. The numbers couldn’t be more forthright. It’s as if the American people interrupted the President to interject, “Now,...
Conservatism: A Thinking Man’s Game
By   |   11.17.14
Thus modern liberalism, founded on the failed political fallacies of generations past, has staked its exclusive claim to be the default setting for American intellectualism, thereby drawing young minds as moths to a funeral pyre. Overwhelmingly, it's the conservative who is painted as a luddite; this despite the fact that modern liberalism still drives the same broken-down ideological Yugo with nothing more than a fresh coat of Kool-Aid-red paint. Somehow we are idiots because we don't believe in ideas which have failed whenever they have been implemented. And we allow this slander to stand.
The Amazing Bendable Jesus!
By   |   11.10.14
Being a Believer in America has become a complicated business lately. I should probably clarify, I’m not speaking about just any sort of believer. After all, believing “there is no god but Allah” is not complicated. You’ll earn a scandalous...
MULTICULTURALISM: The Social Equivalent to a Participation Trophy
By   |   10.28.14
Liberals have given us some silly ideas over the years. Gun-free zones. Public-sector unions. Socialized medicine. On and on. The list is extensive, but one of the dumbest ideas to emerge from the intellectual vacuum known as modern liberalism has...
The Perversity of Righteousness—A 180-Degree Moral Shift
By   |   09.27.14
It is downright difficult to shock or awe anyone anymore. The convergence of instant-media platforms and invisible data networks, which connect these platforms to millions of eyeballs, means that anything which happens in the world is eligible for prime time....
Our New National Security Policy—Never Let an ISIS Go to Waste
By   |   09.18.14
Boy, turn your head for one minute and suddenly everybody is a war hawk! Wasn’t our government in the full-time occupation of blaming Bush for his bloodthirsty colonialism..? All of a sudden, Senator Dianne Feinstein (Chairman of the Senate Intelligence...
COMPROMISE: Pavlovian Response of a Wussbag Worldview
By   |   08.29.14
Why do we assume that compromise is a good thing? The word itself provokes a Pavlovian response across Western culture, but is compromise categorically a good thing? By definition, compromise requires all parties involved to meet somewhere in the middle...
Postmodernism’s Assault on Truth
By   |   07.28.14
If this assessment was true in Gilbert Keith’s day, how much more so today? What we consider Christian virtues have been pulled apart to the point of complete isolation. These virtues are meant to be grouped together as different facets of a complete individual, but as the deconstruction of our culture has progressed, they have been amputated and mutated as Chesterton describes.
I Don’t Want to Write About Barack Anymore…
By   |   07.18.14
I am sick to death of writing about Barack the Destroyer. Ever since that cold November day in 2008, when a chill settled into the heart of every American patriot, we have been fighting. Fighting with written word. Fighting with...
Men Without Chests and the Women Who Love Them
By   |   07.05.14
The world will soon belong to the men without chests. As it is, many of the first-world nations are already steered by such men, including America herself. Britain, France, Iraq, Spain, and our own United States are all run by men without chests. Looking at Congress, the courts, and the heads of Industry, this epidemic is not confined to the walls of the White House either.
Obama’s (and Alinsky’s) Game Plan: “I Know You Are, But What Am I”?
By   |   06.20.14
It was an honest mistake. We’ve all been there. You call the IT department and get nothing but the run-around, right? All you want to do is get back into your Outlook, but no dice. This is the situation in...
Epic Fail:  We Should Have Swapped Gwyneth, Charlize, Kanye & Tom
By   |   06.05.14
We made the wrong exchange. In exchange for Bergdahl the Deserter, we sent five of the most dangerous criminals behind bars to Qatar, where they will inevitably be released to return to their Taliban rat-holes. To say this was an...
