Your 'To Do' List to Save America

Letting in the Wrong Refugees
Fresh terror busts in Australia expose a common Achilles' heel of the West: Indiscriminate refugee policies turn free countries into breeding grounds for jihad. It's the same game in America. Soldiers of Islam have weaponized our blind generosity against us.

The Power of Changed Minds
Should any Republican step to any microphone and announce he has changed his mind on global warming, the press will hail him as a hero. He has taken new evidence, processed it, and changed his mind. Should any Republican do the same on gay marriage, tax increases or a host of other matters, the same will happen.
Which Is the Weaker Party? Your Call
Which of our two great political parties is the stronger? Maybe it makes more sense to ask which of the two is weaker.
Feminists Demand TV Agitprop
Indian-American actress Mindy Kaling not only stars in her own sitcom on Fox called "The Mindy Project," she's in charge of it. You might think that feminists would celebrate that achievement, but that would show that you don't know about feminists. Apparently, nothing satisfies them. Instead, they are demanding she use her program to sell feminism, and its crowning joy, abortion.

Steve Springer, Evangelism and the Divine Conspiracy
In my new book, "Jesus on Trial," I explain how the Bible itself serves as its own apologetic. Holy Scripture, if we'll give it a chance, can bring us to faith. So one of the main goals I have with my book is to encourage people to crack open this amazing book and give it a chance to work in their lives. They may be surprised.
The Lawyer on Trial for Christ

Thanks to Free Ride on Funding Measure, Ex-Im Survives … For Now
Congress has returned to Washington after a 5 week hiatus to deal pressing problems facing the nation both here at home and abroad. Unfortunately, the definition of what constitutes a pressing issue is often different in Washingtons marbled halls than in Main Street America. In no case is that more clear than with the last minute extension of the controversial Export-Import Bank.
What Will Victory Look Like?
"Congress must now vote to support the first steps of what will be a long march toward victory," said Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
The Israelization of Anti-Semitism
Angela Merkel is the stand-up lady of Europe. The German chancellor is forthright in calling anti-Semites to account.
Biden Gets Another Free Pass
Remember when the media freaked out for three days over Sarah Palin's completely innocuous use of the term "blood libel"?
Quit Defending Abuse
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's arrest on child abuse charges has sparked a huge debate about corporal punishment, one that exposes deep cultural rifts. I have to admit I've been surprised -- no, shocked -- at those who've jumped to the 217-pound football player's defense.
When Lawmakers Forget The American Interest
I'm trying to look on the bright side of what passed for debate over another doomed effort to secure U.S. interests by embarking on the fruitless pursuit, cultivation and empowerment of Islamic "moderates," this time in Syria.

Pros & Cons of Alibaba IPO
At some point weve all read the story of Alibaba and the Forty Thieves and the vault of riches hidden behind bushes that unlocked and opened upon the command of Open Sesame.

Washington DC Maintains Its Prohibition on the Second Amendment

Why We Must Revisit The Iraq War
While listening to Bill Bennetts radio program the other morning, a caller, respectfully, yet passionately, expressed his incredulity over the fact that anyone continues to take the Bill Kristols and Max Boots (and, by implication, the Bill Bennetts) of the world seriously when it comes to issues pertaining to American foreign policy vis--vis the Middle East, particularly Iraq.
Prayers and Preparation
A trial is a thing to be avoided whenever possible. When it becomes impossible to avoid, it consumes you. You lose a measure of control over your life and you just have to trust your attorneys and follow their orders. In March, my attorneys ordered me to sit down and read my deposition, which was taken back in 2009. They warned me that in my trial, which was scheduled to start on March 17, 2014, opposing counsel might try an old trick on me. They might just ask the same questions from that deposition, simply for the purpose of eliciting an inconsistent statement that could impeach my credibility.
