Why Don’t We Accept More Christian Refugees?

Why would the United States want to deport refugees from the Middle East who managed to make it to this country? That is what is happening to a group of 20 people who fled the Islamic State in Iraq and made it to the United States. But these people weren’t Muslims; they are Christians.

Please Shut Down the Federal Government

The Republicans have won solid majorities in both the House and the Senate. This means they should be able to pass any legislation they want, right?

Ready for a Biden-Warren Ticket?

The political pundits are all agog over the latest rumor sweeping Washington: that not only will Vice President Joe Biden enter the race to become the Democratic nominee for president, but he has struck a deal with ultra-liberal Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts to become his running mate.

Ted Cruz Calls Mitch McConnell a Liar

Forget about the fireworks on the campaign trail. This past week, things were more incendiary — and more interesting — in Washington, D.C.

Last week was a bad week for the Democratic front-runner. First, polls showed Hillary Clinton trailing possible Republican challengers in three key states. Next, surveys revealed — surprise, surprise! — that voters just don’t trust her. And finally, a new controversy erupted over classified material on her private email server.

Of Course We Must Arm Our Troops

When Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez rammed his car through the gate at the Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and opened fire, the people he shot couldn’t defend themselves. Thanks to a 23-year-old Department of Defense policy, they were unarmed.
