In recent weeks, there has been a lot of talk in the media concerning the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). DOMA was passed in 1996 by large majorities in both houses of Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton.
Now that President Obama has released his proposal for gun control in America, those of us who care about our constitutional liberties should reflect on what will happen if his policies become law. Among the proposals Obama is calling for are a ban on certain semi-automatic rifles and the limiting of ammunition to just ten rounds. This latest attempt at gun control is in response to the Newtown, Connecticut shootings, where a mentally disturbed young man, Adam Lanza, shot and killed his mother and more than 20 innocent people at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.
This past Friday, August 24, 2012, while campaigning in Michigan, Republican Party presidential nominee Mitt Romney made a joke concerning his own birth certificate. The Obama campaign reacted with outrage to Romney’s joke, even though President Obama has joked about his own birth certificate in public. Naturally, responding to the Obama campaign’s outrage, some members of the media followed suit and did the same. Yet, the Obama campaign and the media refused to show outrage when Vice President Joe Biden recently made racially charged comments while on the campaign trail.
In this year’s election, the economy has certainly taken center stage. This is for good reason, of course. The real unemployment numbers for our nation show a figure between 15-20% when all factors are considered, including the underemployed and those who have stopped looking for work.
March 23, 2012, marks the 2-year anniversary of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act becoming law, otherwise known as “Obama Care.” It was On March 23, 2010 that President Obama signed the act into law and sanctioned one of the greatest power grabs by our federal government in our nation’s history.
On June 15, 2010, President Barack Obama made his first address to the nation from the oval office. Hearing his address, several things struck me.
On Thursday, March 11, 2010, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is the most liberal court in the history of the United States, upheld as constitutional the phrase, “One Nation Under God,” found in the Pledge of Allegiance, as well as the phrase, “In God We Trust” on our currency. The Ninth Circuit rejected two legal challenges by the rabid atheist, Michael Newdow.
On Tuesday, January 5, 2010, the United Kingdom’s Times On Line reported that the Obama administration had released six Guantánamo Bay (GITMO) enemy combatants (terrorists) and sent them back to their home country of Yemen just last month, December of 2009.
This past Monday, December 7, 2009, Harry Reid, the Democrat Senate Majority Leader, spoke from the Senate floor and uttered these words concerning the Republican Party’s opposition to socialized health care.
President Obama is now bringing terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay (GITMO), the American military base in Cuba, to the USA for trial. He is risking our safety by bringing these terrorists to the USA; he is also setting an ugly legal precedent, one where terrorists who are not even American citizens, are given the same legal rights as the citizens some of these same terrorists have harmed or killed.
This Thursday, September 17th, 2009, will be the 222nd anniversary of the signing of the US Constitution. We have come a long way as a nation in that time, but have we gone the way our founding fathers intended us to go?
Well, Barack Obama has now passed the seven-month mark of his presidency and we are seeing what we have to endure for the next three years and five months. Already, we can tell that the Barack Obama administration is just one disaster after another.
In the first three months since President Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States, he and his Democrat colleagues in Congress have engaged in the largest power grab in our nation’s history, all to the tune of about a $13 trillion deficit.
In August of 2008, during the Saddleback Forum at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA, Pastor Rick Warren asked Barack Obama a sobering question. Warren asked at what stage of pregnancy does a baby get human rights?
While watching the Obama inauguration on television, I could not help but be struck by two very different emotions.
In my last article with Townhall, I wrote about the misuse of the phrase, “separation of church and state.” The origin of that phrase’s misuse begins with a horribly decided Supreme Court case in 1947.
With this year’s Thanksgiving holiday at our door, it is fitting that we ask an important question that has so much to do with our Constitutional liberties: What is the Separation of Church and State?
Here we are, less than a week until the November 2008 elections and the “progressive” spin machine is in high gear.
During the Saddleback Forum, held this past August at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA, Barack Obama was asked which Supreme Court members he would not have nominated if he were President.
