Can you imagine an alleged burglar investigating his own burglary, or a serial killer his own crimes? How far do you think those investigations would get?

Sir John Dalberg-Acton famously observed, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." No federal agency enjoys more power than the "absolute power" wielded by the IRS.

Under Pres. Obama, "justice" is anything but blind. Neither is it deaf. It appears to be watching your every move and listening to your every word. If you're a federal employee, now it's even listening for your silence.

So, 34 year-old NBA free agent Jason Collins has been declared a hero for publicly announcing that he digs dudes. Well, it's about time! Used to be all a guy had to do was die at Omaha Beach or some other such nonsense.

What’s the big deal? I mean, why are we surprised that an abortionist and his staff would, behind the walls of an always-lethal abortion clinic, commit one of the most horrific serial killings in American history? What did you think abortionists do, heal people?

Be they theist or be they atheist, on this most scientists agree: In the beginning there was nothing. There was no time, space or matter.

I just had breakfast with the Rev. John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg. Well, not the real Peter Muhlenberg, but a preacher friend of mine named Travis Witt. Travis does a powerful impersonation of the Revolutionary War-time pastor-patriot at churches and other venues around the country.

If the Supreme Court makes counterfeit "same-sex marriage," then a whole lot more freaky deaky will follow before marriage extinction inevitably occurs.

It's little wonder that Pres. Obama seeks to associate himself with this great man at every possible turn. Even so, in terms of worldview, political philosophy, integrity and honorability, the two men are as north to south.

Any chance of killing the Obamacare zombie is gone, right? Wrong.

Who am I? I'm a husband and a father. And, by the grace of God, I'm a follower of Jesus Christ. This is what motivates me to write you. You don't have to read on, but I pray you will.

The Boy Scouts of America will soon decide whether to violate its own mission statement, oath and law by changing its policy to allow Scouts and Scoutmasters who are open practitioners of the homosexual lifestyle.

Thank you, thank you and thank you, Mary Elizabeth Williams! What a glorious service your article has done the pro-life cause. Though, I'm sure that's not what you intended.

If they try what I think they might, but hope they don't, I fear this nation - already on the precipice of widespread civil unrest and economic disaster - might finally spiral into to utter chaos, into a second civil war.

It's a good rule of thumb that if the mainstream media and liberal blogosphere remain silent on an otherwise newsworthy event, such event doesn't bode well for them.

First it was "LGB" - liberal shorthand for "lesbian, gay and bisexual." Then they added a "T" for "transgender." Today, this nonsensical alphabet soup of sexual deviancy has ballooned to a marvelous "LGBTQQIAAP."

I offer the only words I can at this inexpressibly mournful time.
