Is IRS Censorship Coming to a Church Near You?

Obama’s relentless attack on religious freedom continues with his favorite enforcers, the IRS, poised to begin the crackdown on Christians. Surprising? Not at all. According to the atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), an agreement has been reached with IRS that the beloved Obama enforcer will abandon its policy of non-enforcement of 501(c)(3) regulations…

WW2 Pearl Harbor Martial Law Provided Order, Saved Lives

The mainstream media remains behind riot-like demonstrations as the instrument of choice for fomenting social change.  Can we forget their role in the so-called Arab Spring, perhaps imagining a hip democracy fueled by liberal news shows and enabled by handheld i-Whatevers.       Then on to the Ukraine, encouraging violent demonstrations again to overthrow the…

Robin Williams:  Should Society Open the Gates to Drug-Enhanced Talent?
