If […]

Weaponizing the IRS Alinsky Style

It seems official. Barack Obama has weaponized the IRS along with the Justice Department and the EPA – to name just a few.

Why the Supreme Court ObamaCare Ruling is Proper

Like everyone else on the right, I detest this ruling and truly hoped that it had gone the other way. But in the back of my mind, when the government made the argument that the mandate was a tax, I thought that was something worth worrying about. Of course, the argument during the legislative process […]

Obamacare Upheld – Repeal on the Way!

The ruling shocked nearly everyone. And the Democrats were, indeed, wrong. The mandate is not constitutional under the Commerce Clause. That much was affirmed.

CONTACT IRANIAN INTERESTS SECTION to PROTEST DEATH SENTENCE of FOLLOWER of CHRIST IN IRAN – PASTOR YOUSSEF NADARKHANI

I wholeheartedly support and endorse the Guardian’s (UK) editorial on the death sentence of Pastor Youssef Nadarkhani.

Both were appealed. The supreme court in […]
