The black community is home to the presidents greatest supporters, unwavering in its loyalty. So many of the hopes of the past, present and future were vested in him in a way that is incomprehensible to anyone outside that community. And Barack Obama failed them in monumental ways.
On November 11, 2011, Congress voted to award a Congressional Gold Medal for the 20,000 black Marines of Montford Point, the first blacks to serve as Marines. I write about Staff Sgt. Elder -- and my struggle to understand him -- in my latest book, "Dear Father, Dear Son."

Liberals learned an unforgettable lesson: Price controls on gasoline don't work. In recent decades, when gas prices have soared, Democrats have shown no desire to repeat the lesson. But they embrace a similar approach for another problem: low pay for many workers.
A front-page headline in the Wall Street Journal screams out: "Islamic State's Gains Reveal New Prowess on the Battlefield."
I believe that America is kept safe by the military, which has had a spiritual shield held over it from before we were even a country---by the chaplains. But today chaplains are under enormous pressure to fully embrace political correctness.

While Memorial Day weekend featured the traditional parades, barbecues and moments of silence at baseball games for those who gave their lives in wartime to preserve our freedoms, in some of America's biggest cities virtual shooting galleries produced the sort of carnage more likely to be found in the Middle East from Islamic State terrorists.
When I was commissioned as an Army officer in 1982, one of the books listed on our mandatory reading was Sun Tzu's Art of War. I willed my original copy to a young subordinate officer years ago. However, I still maintain a copy in my office at the NCPA.
During the early years of the Reagan administration, a Washington news conference was held for me for my first book, "The State Against Blacks." Before making summary statements about the book, I offered the reporters assembled that they could treat me like a white person.

For a selected few in the know, the elections of President Obama and the passage of his signature health care act mark not the pinnacle (as is widely assumed) but rather the twilight end of a golden era of racial progress and progressive social policy in America.
The people of New Hampshire have always understood the importance of their role in helping to choose the person who will fill the most powerful office on Earth, and carefully considering each candidate has become something of a family tradition. Its not surprising then that it has been said, As New Hampshire goes, so goes the nation.
The only Member of Congress also serving as a military chaplain speaks out against the Obama administration and the Pentagon's hostility towards the chaplains serving those serving us all in uniform.
Think of a glorious, leaf-strewn fall afternoon on a football weekend in what was then a small university town in the Midwest, and how you could hear the roar of the crowd in Tiger Stadium clear across little Columbia, Mo., as it echoed and re-echoed.
A United States Marine was convicted at a court-martial for refusing to remove a Bible verse on her computer a verse of Scripture the military determined could easily be seen as contrary to good order and discipline.
The fight against the Islamic State is making for some odd bedfellows -- namely, the U.S. and Iran. Perhaps that isn't a bad thing, as average Americans could be the ultimate beneficiaries.
I am Catholic and conservative, and I believe the time has come for conservatives and the LBGTQ community to compromise and unite against our common foes.

Ireland has just had a national referendum that passed a constitutional amendment to legalize gay marriage. Same sex couples can already get married in 36 states, and next month the Supreme Court is likely to recognize a right to gay marriage under the Constitution.
As ISIS continues its orgy of rape and beheadings in Ramadi, perhaps our president could show a rare flash of dignity by simply slipping out the back door of the White House and down the road to the links instead of putting on his annual farce of honoring the sacred dead at Arlington.
Only our bumbling Republicans could take the number one issue we have against Obama, losing to Islamic terrorism, and turn it into George W. Bushs fault.
I have no desire to pile on with more comments about Josh Duggar, who appears to be a very serious and committed Christian who has made no excuses for the sins of his youth and who deeply desires to make a positive impact for the Lord in the years ahead.
This Memorial Day, in-between the water balloon fights at the backyard BBQs and roasting of marshmallows around the camp fire, it's important to remember what this day is really about. Of course it is great if you are lucky enough get off from work to spend time with family.
Do Americans really want to remember their war heroes?
