As a minister, the “mission field” with which I’m primarily concerned is that difficult-to-understand and freakishly lost people group commonly referred to as “America’s youth.” This extraordinarily confused demographic is the tribe that I feel particularly called to reach.
Federal District Judge James Robertson, who resigned from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) court in protest over secret wiretaps ordered by President Bush, is regarded in Washington legal circles as one of President Bill Clinton's most liberal and partisan judicial appointments.
Thanks to Don Fulsom, a White House correspondent during the Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton presidencies and UPI bureau chief in Washington for seven years, who each year hands The Beltway Beat the poem read at the Christmas Party in the White House press basement.
Inside a South Florida Wal-Mart last Thursday, union-sponsored protesters handed out empty, gift-wrapped boxes to children and made them cry, according to multiple witnesses—and it appears that the arrests of two of the protesters may have been part of a grand strategy designed by Big Labor-backed WakeUpWalMart.com.
Good news, Democrats. We've established that A) the Iraqis appear optimistic, B) our economy remains strong (even if you refuse to give a little credit to Bush's tax cuts), and C) our president is not a racist. Happy New Year.
Do you think manmade global warming threatens the planet? Or that it’s little more than an environmentalist sham? Either way it’s time to realize that the celebrated Kyoto Protocol – long touted by the greens as essential to preventing ecological disaster – isn’t just dying, it’s decomposing. It’s time for something new.
As we approach Christmas I am reminded of Mexican President General Porfirio Diaz's lamentation after the Mexican American War: "Pobre Mexico! Tan lejos de Dios, y tan cerca los Estados Unidos (Poor Mexico! So far from God, and so close to the United States.")
Germans, like Americans, argue over the politically correct language of the season, but the Jewish Museum puts things into perspective, tracing the origins of the religious, cultural, commercial and political images associated with both Christmas and Hanukkah.
Members of Congress have been known to vote for legislation they haven't read. But is it possible Congress authorized warrantless wiretaps without realizing it?
Playing on Christmas nostalgia, which most Americans share, the trailer promised a rollicking, good-natured comedy about family foibles and the frustrating moments that eventually become our favorite memories. What the film delivers is a ham-fisted primer on blue-state values.
Last week, the House of Representatives voted to establish a dictatorship in the United States and to prevent hopeless citizens from escaping it. That, at least, is what the casual listener might have concluded from the rhetoric mustered in opposition to the building of a better security fence on the U.S.-Mexico border.
By age 25, she was one of the world's top models. Now, Petra Nemcova is best known for being the woman who, for several hours, desperately clung to a tree, her pelvis broken in four places and her legs unable to move, when the catastrophic tsunami struck South Asia on Dec. 26.
Former White House speechwriter Peggy Noonan believes most biographies of Pope John Paul II “locate” the late pontiff in the context of history and explain his place in it. What they often “avoid,” she says, is speaking “at any great length of what he believed at his core."
Convicted murderer of four and founder of the notorious Crips gang, Tookie Williams, is gone, executed under the death penalty of the state of California. Now those who protested his conviction, and worked for his clemency, want him to be remembered as a hero.
Chancellor Sullivan: In 2004, you carelessly told a member of the UNC Board of Governors to help you "get Mike Adams off your back" following a decision to hire (for $3000) a porn star to speak at UNC-Greensboro
The House International Relations Committee last Thursday voted 24 to 19 to send to the House floor, "without recommendation," a resolution requiring President Bush to turn over documents relating to 16 words in his 2003 State of the Union Address.
During a recent speaking engagement at a DC high school, I talked about the importance of cultivating an entrepreneurial spirit. One student after another told me that the white people would prevent them from becoming successful entrepreneurs. These kids were only teenagers, and they had already given up.
