Thirty-five miles northeast of Damascus is a small Christian village built into the mountains of Syria.
Between my 6 year old son and Barack Obama, I’ve been having a hard time of late telling the two apart. When President Obama gives a press conference, it’s like watching a child in the middle of a temper tantrum.
Should I vote with my heart or my brain? It’s a question most Libertarians will ask themselves when they step into the ballot box in 2014 and 2016.
Rand Paul has ideas. Chris Christie has gimmicks and a shtick that may win him views on YouTube, but ultimately one that is unsatisfying for millions of Americans tired of big-government Republicanism.
The morning of June 16, 2013 started off like any other traditional morning in Amy Gibbon’s house.
I can think of many great attractions in Chattanooga, TN. You can stay in the famous Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel.
The ultimate goal is clear -- to neuter America’s military as an effective fighting machine and encourage the development of a global “peacekeeping” force.
Vince Flynn was a New York Times bestseller and the creator of such great characters as Stan Hurley, Irene Kennedy, Scott Coleman, and Mitch Rapp. To me, Vince Flynn was not only an amazing author; he was a friend and a mentor, never wasting an opportunity to encourage a person to find the magic of her own life story.

You are beginning to worry me. I am afraid you are losing touch with the people on whom your fame is based. I, after all, was one of your biggest supporters once. I am thrilled that you get invitations to go to NBA games, that you display your Chick-fil-A shirt, and that you go and support your daughter and her celebrity friends on Dancing with the Stars.
If you’re looking to see what a policy of liberalism can do to a city, look no further then Rock City. Despite one of the most aggressive ECD campaigns featuring celebrities Eminem, Jeff Daniels and Tim Allen, not even Hollywood can save Detroit from going broke.
