Spy vs. DiFi

The needle already was in the haystack. That essentially is the message embedded in the Democrats' Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on CIA interrogations and detentions, approved without a single Republican vote and released by committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein of California. 2014-12-21T00:01:00-05:00 2014-12-22T02:24:59Z Debra J.

Ringside Politics Champion Of 2014: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx)

16 min 49 sec ago
The U.S. Senate has never seen the likes of Ted Cruz. He does not play by the rules or the politics as usual game. Instead, Cruz acts independently, displays tremendous courage and a strong commitment to conservative values. 2014-12-21T00:01:00-05:00 2014-12-22T02:24:59Z Jeff Crouere

Some people sighed a big sigh this last week: a few with a grateful, at long last sense of relief; others with all the hopefulness that Sisyphus mustve felt each time he put shoulder to boulder at the bottom of the mountain, and started rolling his fated rock up the slope again. 2014-12-21T00:01:00-05:00 2014-12-22T02:24:59Z Paul Jacob

The Strange Source of Our Cuba Policy

16 min 49 sec ago
For a long time, the U.S. ostracism of Cuba has been like the vintage American cars on the streets of Havana: obsolete but imperishable. It didn't topple the Castro government, didn't force human rights progress and didn't unite the world behind us. Yet failure was no enemy of longevity. 2014-12-21T00:01:00-05:00 2014-12-22T02:24:59Z Steve Chapman

It's the perfect Democrat weapon of mass destruction. It combines, global warming, with a welfare program, with union graft, with ultimate failure, all for more money! 2014-12-21T00:01:00-05:00 2014-12-22T02:24:59Z John Ransom

Perhaps it was Al Gore who popularized the term inconvenient truth. Although his truth is disputable at best, it is a fact that real truth is often poorly received by the populous. 2014-12-21T00:01:00-05:00 2014-12-22T02:24:59Z Michael Youssef

Kerry: Lose that Limp Shrimp Pink Tie!

16 min 49 sec ago
Well, heres the problem. No wonder the U.S.-Iranian nuclear talks are going nowhere. Sec. of State John Kerry has had to kick the can down the road--again. He just gave Iran another extension on the Wests deadline to come to an agreement about Irans drive for a nuclear weapon. Deadline? Red line? Dead red line? 2014-12-21T00:01:00-05:00 2014-12-22T02:24:59Z Ken Blackwell

JESSICA CHAMBERS: Teen Murdered Immediately After Local Blacks Called For Rape & Burning Of White Women

16 min 49 sec ago
This is a powerful piece by Donald Joy, that originally appeared on my website ClashDaily.com, about the brutal murder/burning of Jessica Chambers. I decided to run it in place of my column because this case seems to have escaped the notice of Lame Stream Media, Al Sharpton and Eric Holder. 2014-12-21T00:01:00-05:00 2014-12-22T02:24:59Z Doug Giles

As if we needed more reminders of just how despotic and power mad some world leaders can be, weve been confronted lately by a number of examples of liberty under assault and reminders we must be vigilant in its defense. 2014-12-21T00:01:00-05:00 2014-12-22T02:24:59Z Derek Hunter
