Or maybe both? Left-leaning “news explanation” site Vox has trouble differentiating between the National Rifle Association, the largest firearms safety training organization in the world, and the National Recovery Act, a ruthless system of wage and price controls created to help introduce socialism into the U.S. Note to Vox: Guns and butter is just a • Read More »

I wholeheartedly endorse everything Frank J. Fleming talks about in this article, 5 Rules for Victory in the Culture War. I watched “Christian culture go from something that was *almost* accepted by the mainstream (The Jesus Freak movement) into something that is openly derided and mocked by the trendsetters and culture mavens of our society.

He knows if your gun’s ok, so be good for 5 bills’ sake. Baltimore to offer $500 if you squeal on your neighbor’s illegal guns. In an effort to reduce violent crime, Baltimore officials and Metro Crime Stoppers are giving $500 rewards for tips that lead to illegal gun forfeitures. If a tip leads to • Read More »

It appears that the dextrosphere is panicking over the fact that an iconic worldwide brand closely associated with a nation of immigrants uses immigrants to sell its product.   For the record, as an immigrant to the U.S., I thought this Coke commercial was pretty neat. It’s a good reminder that people come to this country • Read More »

Phil Robertson quotes the Bible in an interview with GQ and humbly emphasizes that it is God that judges man, not him.  He’s kicked off his own show, despite A&E’s history of forgiving controversial reality stars.  Ethan Krupp, Obamacare’s pajama-clad poster boy, was accused of racism and anti-Semitism and proudly describes himself as a “liberal • Read More »

The news is brought to you by the Democratic National Committee

If you were unfortunate enough to watch KPNX’s 6:00 news show yesterday, you would have been treated to one of the most blatantly pro-Democrat “stories” of the year running as their lead story. Apparently, according to CNN, 2013 won’t be known as the year that the IRS was used as a weapon of political chicanery • Read More »

Rob Long writes TV shows for a living, and he’s good at it. He’s also a conservative, so when he talks about the realities of reality TV, we should listen.  A&E will cave. Some weasel-worded press release will go out, some oddly-constructed sentence about “faith” and “love” and some other stuff is probably right now • Read More »

It was never a question of “if”, it was only a question of “when.” Phil Robertson, one of the stars of the hugely popular “Duck Dynasty” show on A+E television, has been suspended indefinitely from the show for “anti-gay” remarks he made in an interview with GQ. “It seems like, to me, a vagina — • Read More »

I realized this morning that over the new few weeks, I’ll be hitting the trifecta of center/right radio in the Phoenix area. This Sunday I’m going to tweeting/working the “Ask A Jew” event at Scottsdale Bible Church this Sunday for KKNT radio (look for my stuff with the “#askajew” hashtag).  Then in a couple of • Read More »

The Washington Post *swears* the Obama is a nice guy most of the time, it’s just that sometimes he gets angry and hurts them.

Someone get this newspaper to a shelter for battered spouses and a book on co-dependecy. The Post was able to interview John Delong, NSA director of compliance for the article and they were initially informed “DeLong and members of the NSA communications staff said he could be quoted ‘by name and title’ on some of • Read More »

  What do you get when you mix 14,000 pounds of high explosives, 20,000 gallons of gasoline and a case of road flares? I don’t know, but I know the results of that mixture won’t be HALF as exciting as what happens when Jim Sharpe, James Allen and myself get together over at KFYI.  More • Read More »

Jim Sharpe and John McJunkin go after Mike Broomhead for supporting Governor Brewer on Medicaid.  Mike Broomhead returns fire.  There are some people who say that we must support either Jim/John OR Mike.  This is a false choice: We can hate them both with equal vigor. 🙂  But let us set aside the divisions that tear • Read More »

The current push to ban the best-selling rifle in America began as a reflexive response to the tragedy in Newtown. It’s not an appeal to common sense, it’s a play on emotions, because “even if it saves just one life, it’s worth it”.  Two can play that game.  Hollywood, academia and big media have been • Read More »

” I once heard the conservative political philosopher Hadley Arkes, in a speech, refer to media bias as akin to the “law of gravity.” There was much wisdom in that comparison: To say that the law of gravity is the cause of plane crashes is not especially helpful, and if airlines got in the habit of relying • Read More »

Are the Republicans smart enough to figure out that opposing perpetual copyrights is a big, big win for them?  I hope so.  I agree with a whole bunch of other people that the liberty and freedom that conservatism offers is better and cooler than the statism of the left.

I actually enjoy reading The New Republic because they’re one of the few lefty sites out there that respects intellectual integrity. I may not (and usually don’t) agree with what they say, but they usually come to their conclusions by way of logic and not polemics.  And they’re certainly spot-on with their takedown of John • Read More »

If you rely on the TV networks, the newspapers, or magazines to get your information…you are being lied to.  Just because it looks official doesn’t mean anything. I was at my parent’s house the other day.  Both of them are in their early 70’s and faithfully read the newspaper and watch TV news.  My dad • Read More »

It’s not enough for Newsweek to announce it’s going all-digital, now Arizona’s birdcage liner newspaper of record decides it doesn’t want people to sign up for their brand-spanking new pay-per-view website.    “Cookies must be enabled to view articles” as your search engine results?
