The Church Militant

The refrain that is heard from the right when they refer to liberal actors is “Shut up and Act.” The same goes for leftist musicians: “Shut up and Sing.” Don’t involve yourselves in matters you know little to nothing about. Leave the politics to politicians, and leave armed conflicts to the military.

Because one is popular, famous and has a large following doesn’t automatically make an actor or musician an authority on matters political or military. Save for a very few, history is not on their side. Not many have gone on to become great political or military leaders. read more

Will ISIS Use Dirty Bomb to Blackmail?

Who doesn’t love the current price of a gallon of gas? I was driving in to my office recently and noticed more than one fuel station posting gas at $1.55 per gallon. When George W. Bush first took office in 2001, the average price of a gallon was $1.55.

Remember back in 2012, during a debate with Mitt Romney Obama said: “When I took office, the price of gasoline was $1.80, $1.86. Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse.” So what does it tell us about the present Obama economy that gas prices are now some 30 cents lower than 2009 and in free fall? Sure, it’s great for us consumers – we’re saving a fortune on gas and heating oil – but it’s not great for our nation or the world economy. read more

USA: TODAY’S WEIMAR REPUBLIC?

America is piling up debt like crazy. As of fiscal year 2013, our federal government was borrowing 46 cents of every dollar it spends, with seemingly no end in sight. Our national debt is almost $20 trillion, and unfunded liabilities are approaching a quarter of a quadrillion dollars. Unfortunately, or fortunately, there eventually will be an end. There has to be.

Article I, Section 10, of the Constitution: “No state shall emit bills of credit, make any thing but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts, coin money.” The Founding Fathers knew that irresponsible governments would print paper money, backed by nothing, overspend and devalue the currency, causing “inflation” and destroying the economy. But did we listen? Of course not.

In 1971, during the Nixon administration, we officially went off the gold standard and unpinned our paper money from anything of real or intrinsic value. George Santayana is quoted as saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Many question the brilliance of the founders who have warned us of virtually every major mistake our country has made, yet still we don’t heed them. read more

CRUZ: A PROFILE IN COURAGE

I’ve been a Ted Cruz guy from before day one – admiring him, Mike Lee and a few others for standing up to the Washington machine from the minute they showed up in D.C. No one in recent memory has had more of an impact on the Beltway cartel than he – and in such a short period of time.

Cruz told the people of Texas what he would do if elected, and enough of them liked and believed what he said. And unlike virtually every other politician, he has done what he promised – to fight the unconstitutionality of the federal government. This makes Cruz a public servant – not a politician. read more
