    EDITOR’S NOTE: Two years ago today, I shared the news below for the first time. In light of the fact that a verdict is imminent in the Oklahoma City Bombing Trial that’s been taking place in federal court in Salt Lake City recently (yes, it’s true), I decided to share it again with only minor modifications. Click on image above to download document (PDF). Jesse Trentadue’s ongoing effort to obtain information from the FBI continued this week when he filed a motion (PDF) aimed at convincing a federal judge in Utah to allow him access to information about the FBI’s…
  • Why Is Christian Persecution Ignored?

    You hear all sorts of things on the news these days but none of them have anything to do with Christian persecution. You may wonder why this is true and so do I. The fact is that the world seem to care more about what gadget is hot and who is dating whom than who is being killed for their religious beliefs. It’s sad but true that neither the media nor anyone else these days cares about you, but it’s time to shed some light on things. The fact is things like a seven year old slave boy in Sudan being crucified on a board and left for dead by his owner simply because he snuck out to go to a…

    **Written by Doug Powers During an interview with Vox, President Obama spoke about “vicious zealots” who “randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.” In other words, “unkind acts of randomness.” Instead of walking it back, Josh Earnest et al are sounding like defense attorneys for the attackers attempting to get their clients out of hate crime charges: “Does the president have any doubt that those terrorists attack that deli because there would be Jews in that deli?” Karl asked. “It is clear from the terrorists and the writings…

    When Engage moved into our offices on 725 8th St. SE at the end of 2010, it was a perfect fit for the budding company. Located in Eastern Market on historic Barracks Row, our office was right down the street from Capitol Hill and offered easy access to downtown DC. We enjoyed watching the neighborhood grow and change, and tried the new restaurants and bars that opened over the years. But four years later, after new staff additions (including me!) and several different furniture configurations, it became apparent: we had outgrown our home in Eastern Market. It was time to start looking for a…

  • Another ‘general policy’ bites the dust': Kerry and Biden meet with Netanyahu election rival

    Doug Powers
    9 Feb 2015 | 4:22 am
    **Written by Doug Powers President Obama recently gave this excuse for why he wouldn’t meet with Benjamin Netanyahu when he’s in the country for a planned speech to a joint session of Congress (less any Democrats who are definitely not boycotting but just might be too busy to show up): A meeting so close to Israel’s March 17 election could be seen as helping Netanyahu. “I’m declining to meet with him simply because our general policy is we don’t meet with any world leader two weeks before their election,” Obama said in an excerpt of a CNN interview…

In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a…

  • Meet Colleen: Engage’s Operations Intern

    As a Georgetown student, I think it’s sometimes difficult to venture out of what we affectionately call “the Georgetown bubble.” Stepping off the King Street metro for the first time to come to my new internship, I knew I had finally done it. Engage is located in Old Town Alexandria, and this area is indisputably beautiful. One of the best parts of coming to Old Town for work is the walk home. At night, as the sun begins to set, trollies pass by and the trees that line the brick sidewalks glow with festive lights. This nighttime walk has become a perfect opportunity for me to reflect…
  • Meet Francisca, Engage’s Spring 2015 Intern

    3 Feb 2015 | 3:06 pm
    On my way to Engage on the first day of my internship, I could feel a mixture of excitement and stress. My thoughts jumped from making sure I had brought everything I needed, to a backup plan (a large coffee and asking for directions) if I did not quickly find my destination. However, as soon as I met the team at Engage, my stress was overtaken by excitement of joining the team! As a Government major at Georgetown University, I am captivated by the growing number of factors and events that affect governing. From a neighborhood block watch to a city government to a country’s legislature,…
  • Meet Alex, Engage’s Newest Digital Strategy Intern

    Hey guys! I’m Alex, Engage’s newest Digital Strategy intern. I hail from Los Angeles California, but have lived here in DC for the last few years while attending Georgetown University. Georgetown is where I met Maggie, the Operations Manager here at Engage. Maggie worked at this cool grocery store on campus where my freshman dorm friends and I would all go to get milkshakes late at night when we didn’t feel like doing homework. Fast-forward to three years later, and here we are again, hanging out at Engage. No milkshakes here, but I’ll make sure that changes soon.

I am now a Digital Strategy intern at Engage. This is the first time that I am working in my field of interest in what we college kids call “the real world” and I am beyond excited for the opportunity. So, why did I choose Engage for my first internship? I was…

    Mike McDaniel
    3 Mar 2015 | 6:58 pm
    The leader of the free world spoke to a joint session of Congress today. Barack Obama refused to attend, refused to speak with him, and would admit only to “looking at” a transcript of his speech. He, of course, is Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu. I’m not going to quote extensively from the speech. Anyone wishing to read it–and it is a speech that will rank among the most important in history–may do so here.  A video of the speech–a bit more than 40 minutes–is available here.  Before I present a variety of views from around the Internet, it may be…

He had the great misfortune to be caught by the police with a 300 year-old flintlock pistol he had just bought for his collection of historic relics, and arrested, was facing up to a decade in jail.   In that article I noted: This is the height of insanity and abuse of power. Police officers have substantial discretion, and that discretion exists for cases just like this. While I have no doubt that New…
  • Respect Me Or Else!

    Mike McDaniel
    2 Mar 2015 | 7:13 pm
    Among the first things I teach my students every year is the difference between self-respect and self-esteem. Self-esteem is nothing more than positive feelings about oneself based on no criteria whatever. One can be among the worst people on the planet, yet have stratospheric self-esteem. Self-respect, however, is earned positive feelings about oneself based on external criteria. It is reflected in the good will and opinions of others, in good deeds and kindness, not a self-indulgent imagination. Self-esteem is meaningless; self-respect is vital. That’s why I am so often amused by people…

Malcolm Forbes said:” if you have a job without frustrations, you don’t have a job,” the point being, of course, that all jobs have frustrations; it’s the nature of the beast. As much as I love what I do, I’ve had, of late, more than my fair share of frustrations. Perhaps they may provide a bit of insight concerning certain issues.

    credit: Wallace Halldallasobserver andcan turkyilmaz Jim Schutze in the Dallas Observer has a remarkable story about how a lone good guy can make a difference, though all the resources of a powerful state are arrayed against him. All too often, education provides for the building of fiefdoms and power bases, and for lining the pockets of the unscrupulous. Frequently, teaching and learning have little to do with anything. The state is Texas, and as in many states, the story is familiar. An honest man—Wallace Hall—is appointed by the Governor to a state oversight board—The State Board of…

    So, let me set the background, here.  The Huffington Post decided last week to run a hit piece (the lack of link is deliberate, and meant as an insult) on the LIBRE Initiative, which is a Spanish-language activist group that is also big on small-government conservatism (full disclosure: my friend/former RedState colleague Brian Faughnan happens to works for them). This sort of thing infuriates the (largely white) progressive leadership cadre, mostly because said leadership cadre has written for themselves a wonderful narrative where they’ve selflessly taken up the White Enlightened…

    4 Mar 2015 | 4:00 am
    The Ethical Vision of Hillary Clinton (Image Credit: Ed Driscoll) Hillary Clinton violated the professional ethics of her office as Secretary of State. She used a personal email address for official business. This is unethical because the official work emails of a Federal Civil Servant or Executive Appointee are supposed to belong to the government and be archived for posterity. The furor over the Department of Justice and their deliberate obstruction of discovery regarding Lois Lerner’s emails should give you an idea of just how corrupt this is. If it doesn’t, an official with the…

    When Bill and Hillary Clinton look at themselves in the mirror, they see poor people. They are rich. They have a huge house in a wealthy neighborhood. They do not have to fly commercial. Their daughter has married into a wealthy family. They’ve done quite well for themselves. But the richer they get, they still see themselves as poor. So they are greedy. That is the ultimately problem for the Clintons. It has caused them, in their quest to keep up with imaginary Joneses, to behave as authorities unto themselves. Both have gamed the system to increase their income. Both have obstructed…

    On Wednesday, the GOP-led U.S. Senate will vote to undo the National Labor Relations Board’s announced rules enabling unions to “ambush” companies with so-called “quickie elections.” According to the Hill: Republicans are using the Congressional Review Act that allows lawmakers to undo regulation through a motion of disapproval, which needs a majority vote in both chambers. The motion can’t be filibustered or amended, which will help it bypass Democratic opposition. The NLRB’s new rules, announced in December, are set to take effect on April 14th and…

    Are you a creator? Do you write, draw, paint? Do you craft stories or crochet? Do you sculpt in marble or in marble rye? (Sandwich artists, anyone?) I assume that you’ve said ‘yes’ to at least one of those because you were made in the image of God, the consummate, quintessential, original Creator. He made us to be creators, like Him, though not on the same scale. Of course, we rebelled against our Creator and messed everything up, including, especially, the Creator/creature relationship between God and us. If I could digress for a minute, I’d like to take you inside a…

    I haven’t seen a great deal of reporting on this in the American press and I didn’t want to let it slip away without remarking on it. There is presently a major operation under way in Iraq’s Anbar province to retake the city of Tikrit from DAESH. The operation is a joint one including the Iraqi army, Shi’ite militiamen, and Iranian advisors: The Iraqi military launched a major campaign to take back a key city from the self-proclaimed Islamic State over the weekend—a move that caught the U.S. “by surprise,” in the words of one American government…

Senate Democrats have used the filibuster to block legislation that would have funded the DHS while defunding President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration. Even though…

    Warner Todd Huston

    The left is all about destroying the traditional family and supplanting it with “families” of its own making. While non-traditional families aren’t necessarily an “evil” that need to be eliminated, the destruction of the traditional family is an evil that needs to be stopped. The problem with discouraging the traditional, two-parent family is that children born of a one parent family (or even living with no parents) are generally forced into asking for support from outside the family–whether it be from government or community–or going without any help at all. In the case…

Here is an excerpt from an AP story titled “Vatican seeks to quell Mexican anger over pope’s drug comment“: The Vatican sought Wednesday to defuse a diplomatic tiff with Mexico after Pope Francis referred to the possible “Mexicanization” of his native Argentina from drug trafficking, the latest instance of Francis’ casual speaking style…

  • Avoiding Religious Persecution

    admin
    27 Feb 2015 | 10:03 am
    How can it still be that a person cannot practice their religion freely without someone else telling them what they believe is not correct? And that is not even the extent of how badly some people are treated because of their beliefs. Certainly times have changed and things have gotten better in many ways, but it is not even close to being a safe world for every kind of religious group. There are so many different religions out there that it is hard to believe that any religion is right in what they think. Of course it is not important who is right in their beliefs, just that we all have the…

    We live in a day where the average religious person is required to follow a certain standard. What I mean by that is that the religious people of the world, especially the United States, are asked to keep their faith quiet and their ideas to themselves. In the United States the rights of Christians are typically left alone. However the past few years have seen a huge spike in the number of religious liberties that are being denied. However the bigger issues that we find in the United States have to deal with the Islamic faith. In the United States it is a problem for many folks if you share…

    This ISIS thing is out of control and we as Christians need to do something about it. The Christian persecution by ISIS is bad and is getting worse. The Pentagon has issued a statement warning of the severity of this issue and the danger that ISIS poses. This group by the name ISIS is much more than a terrorist group and they are letting everyone around them know that. They are beheading Christians, men, women and children. No one is off limits to this group of horrible people. I hope that they will be stopped before it is too late. I have heard rumors that ISIS members are crossing American…

    You hear all sorts of things on the news these days but none of them have anything to do with Christian persecution. You may wonder why this is true and so do I. The fact is that the world seem to care more about what gadget is hot and who is dating whom than who is being killed for their religious beliefs. It’s sad but true that neither the media nor anyone else these days cares about you, but it’s time to shed some light on things. The fact is things like a seven year old slave boy in Sudan being crucified on a board and left for dead by his owner simply because he snuck out to go to a…

    You work hard to keep your home as clean as you possibly can. In a constant war with the dust, you sweep, vacuum, and dust every single day. Sometimes you even pull everything out of a room and scrub the place from the top to bottom. What might not have occurred to you at this point is that you should also focus on trying to free your home of any negative energy that might be clogging things up. This negative energy might be the reason everyone has been feeling frustrated and irritated all the time. It can also be one of the reasons you might be currently struggling to communicate with your…

    3 Mar 2015 | 6:54 pm
    The House voted Tuesday to fund the Department of Homeland Security, ending a months-long impasse and averting a weekend shutdown at the agency. The vote highlighted the rift in the GOP over the measure, as all of the 167 no votes came from Republicans -- more than twice as many as the 75 who supported the bill. It cleared the House on a 257-167 vote only because of the unanimous support of the House's Democrats. The vote allows Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to finally turn the page on an ugly chapter in his leadership that consumed the opening months of the new Republican-controlled…

    As Iraq launches a new military operation to retake the city of Tikrit from the self-proclaimed Islamic State, thousands of Iraqi forces and militia fighters have converged in the city Samarra to strike nearby ISIS strongholds. The United States is expected to provide air support as part of its continued bombing campaign. The offensive comes as the Iraqi military prepares for a major U.S.-backed operation to retake Mosul from ISIS in the coming weeks. ISIS "is one of the results of the United States hitting a very vulnerable society with a sledgehammer, which elicited sectarian conflicts that…

    Paul Mirengoff
    4 Mar 2015 | 7:25 am
    (Paul Mirengoff) I found Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress persuasive in all but one respect. I question Netanyahu’s claim that the alternative to the deal Obama seems prepared to settle for is “a better deal.” It believe that the Iranian regime’s overriding goal is to obtain nuclear weapons. If that’s the case, Iran will not agree to a deal that significantly impedes its ability to reach this goal. It follows that the most likely alternative to a bad deal with Iran is “no deal.” Accordingly, President Obama and his supporters have a point…

We would also have been treated to disparaging stories about Clinton dating back to her days as a Goldwater Girl. But the MSM’s fondness for double standards has its limits.

  • So Much for Hubbert's Peak Oil Theory: $20 Per Barrel Oil Soon?

    All right, the headline might be a tad hasty. Nevertheless, geologist M. King Hubbert famously (and so far) correctly predicted in 1956 that U.S. domestic oil production in the lower 48 states would peak around 1970 and begin to decline. In 1969 Hubbert predicted that world oil production would peak around 2000. Hubbert argued that oil production grows until half the recoverable resources in a field have been extracted, after which production falls off at essentially the same rate at which it expanded. This theory suggests a bell-shaped curve rising from first discovery to peak and descending…

But a lessening of U.S. support for Israel certainly would be [bold mine-DL]. With an indifferent America, Israel would become a lonely, frightening place. That’s almost certainly not true. If it is true that America doesn’t need Israel, as Cohen acknowledges, it is equally true that Israel doesn’t really need America. Whether it became a “lonely, frightening place” or not…

    14 Jul 2013 | 11:00 pm
    歯が一度欠損してしまうと、自然には元には戻りません。欠損した歯を補う治療として、入れ歯やブリッジなどがありますが、どちらの治療法も強度にやや難があります。 入れ歯の場合は健康な歯にも大きな負担がかかりますし、ブリッジの場合は、健康な歯まで削らなくてはいけません。 噛みあわせが悪くなってしまったり、硬いものが食べられなくなってしまったり、何かと問題も多いんです。…
  • インプラント治療はどれくらいの期間が必要か?

    admin
    5 Jul 2013 | 11:00 pm
    ただ、インプラントは大掛かりな設備が必要と聞いて、治療期間も長引きそう、と思い敬遠する人も多いようです。しかし、その治療期間は当日のみで終了するという超短期治療で完了します。施術前にインプラントが可能かどうかの検査が必要になるのですが、それも一日で終了し、後は手術日まで待機します。合計しても事前検査の日と手術日の2日間で、治療は終了するのです。…

  • Are FBI Informants Working Inside America’s Churches?

    EDITOR’S NOTE: Two years ago today, I shared the news below for the first time. In light of the fact that a verdict is imminent in the Oklahoma City Bombing Trial that’s been taking place in federal court in Salt Lake City recently (yes, it’s true), I decided to share it again with only minor modifications. Click on image above to download document (PDF). Jesse Trentadue’s ongoing effort to obtain information from the FBI continued this week when he filed a motion (PDF) aimed at convincing a federal judge in Utah to allow him access to information about the FBI’s…

    I enjoy chocolate and politics, but I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day. Therefore, I decided to share some history that combines the first two topics with the commercialized holiday instead of sharing my chocolate. This illustration by cartoonist Clifford Berryman appeared in the Washington Evening Star Feb. 14, 1907, and depicted Valentine’s Day surprises based on then-current political issues.

  • Sunday Humor Round Number Two — Literally

    admin
    8 Feb 2015 | 11:18 am
    Call it Round Two of my Sunday funnies. After sharing a piece involving the late actor, Don Knotts, earlier today, I thought I’d share more humor in the form of a television commerical for Poo~Pourri Before-You-Go Toilet Spray, a product actually sold around the world. Enjoy! Yes, I know this viral video is almost nine months old and has been viewed more than 2.8 million times on YouTube, but I still found it funny enough to share. I’m on a laughing binge today. For links to other articles of interest as well as photos and commentary, join me on Facebook and Twitter.  Please…

    Sometimes, one has to get away from business and politics and simply enjoy something funny. Today, I offer you the chance to do just that by watching a video of the late actor Don Knotts. Best known as “Deputy Barney Fife” on “The Andy Griffith Show,” he got his big break by playing a nervous weatherman in a skit on “The Steve Allen Show.” Post by West Virginia Celebrities. According to the folks at the West Virginia Celebrities Facebook page, dedicated to news and information about celebrities who call West Virginia home, Knotts made his debut on “The Steve…

  • New Hampshire Ends Brief Flirtation with National ID Compliance

    Jim Harper
    4 Mar 2015 | 5:50 am
    Jim Harper When the REAL ID Act passed in 2005, Senator Joe Lieberman (D-CT), no civil libertarian, called the national ID law “unworkable” for good reason. It seeks to herd all Americans into a national ID system by coercing states into issuing drivers licenses (and sharing information about their drivers) according to complex federal standards. The hook REAL ID uses in seeking to dragoon states into compliance is the threat that TSA agents will refuse IDs from non-complying states at our nation’s airports. The threat is an empty one. Consistently over years, every time a…
  • Bibi vs. Frost

    Benjamin H. Friedman
    3 Mar 2015 | 4:22 pm
    Benjamin H. Friedman There is a lot to say about Israeli Prime Minster’s Benjamin Netanyahu’ speech to Congress today. I could object to his use of worst case scenarios and overstatements of Iranian power. Instead I’m taking issue with his treatment of Robert Frost’s The Road Not Taken. My point, besides being pedantic, is that Frost’s realist sensibility makes him a poor reference for Bibi. Netanyahu tells us that we face a crossroads. One path is the deal being negotiated, which may contain the Iranian nuclear program temporarily but will “lead to a nuclear-armed Iran whose…
  • Obama Police Task Force Report Includes Worrying Recommendation

    Matthew Feeney
    3 Mar 2015 | 1:53 pm
    Matthew Feeney Yesterday, President Obama met with the Task Force on 21st Century Policing, which on the same day released an interim report outlining dozens of recommendations related to how policing can be improved. The report was released the day after police in Los Angeles shot and killed a man during an altercation in which, according to the LAPD, he and officers “struggled over one of the officer’s handguns.” What makes the shooting notable is that at least one of the officers involved in the shooting was wearing a body camera. According to LAPD commander Andrew Smith, the…
  • California Outliers

    3 Mar 2015 | 11:10 am
    Patrick J. Michaels Today’s Washington Post story by Darryl Fears on California drought frequency in a warming world compelled me to take a look at the Golden State’s temperature history. In my 2011 book Climate Coup,  I showed that the alarm over California warming was rather odd, as most of the changes had taken place thirty years previously.  That was then, and this is now. But what about history? Here are California temperatures, for the last 38 years, beginning in 1976.  That’s the year of “The Great Pacific Climate Shift,” a sudden and lasting change in both the…
  • Long Range Bomber’s Big Bill

    Nicole Kaeding
    3 Mar 2015 | 8:12 am
    Nicole Kaeding Over the next several months the Pentagon will award the contract for the Long Range Strike Bomber. If the Department of Defense’s history repeats itself, cost overruns on the project seem likely. According to 2010 estimates each new plane is officially expected to cost $550 million. More recent estimates are higher. A 2014 report from the Congressional Research Service included estimates of up to $810 million per bomber. The Air Force is expected to buy 100 planes, which would cost a total of $55 billion even if the low official estimate per plane panned out. One reason for…

  • Dan Senor: Obama Admin Elevated Netanyahu’s Convincing Speech

    Washington Free Beacon Staff
    4 Mar 2015 | 7:18 am
    Dan Senor, an expert on the Middle East, said he believes the White House only “elevated” the stage for Netanyahu to speak on. “I’ve been doing a number of these Israeli leader speeches,” Senor said. “The Congress—no one has paid attention. This one, the world was watching. There’s one person to thank. His name is President Obama.” Senor called Netanyahu’s speech a substantial move that may make President Obama’s negotiations with Iran tougher. “What the Prime Minister tried to do is just lay out why this is a bad deal,” Senor said. “You, Mr. President,…

  • Planet Hillary Sends in The Cavalry to Debunk Email Scandal, Fails to Correct the Record

    Washington Free Beacon Staff
    4 Mar 2015 | 5:26 am
    One Hillary Clinton ally believes the New York Times owes Clinton an apology. David Brock, known for his loyalty, went on Morning Joe Wednesday to come to Clinton’s defense. Brock called Michael S. Schmidt’s article about Clinton using a private email address while Secretary of State “sloppily done” and demanded a retraction. Instead, the reporter doubled down. Schmidt reported Wednesday that when Clinton was asked for emails related to the Benghazi scandal, the State Department did not hand over any emails from Clinton’s personal account. Brock said the media was not treating…
  • Experts: U.S. Concessions Handing Iran a Clear Path to Nuclear Bomb

    Adam Kredo
    4 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    The Obama administration is pursuing a nuclear deal with Iran that leaves the Islamic Republic a year away from obtaining a nuclear bomb and which, according to experts, gives the United States insufficient leverage to dismantle Tehran’s nuclear infrastructure. As negotiations with Iran hit a critical juncture, U.S. officials and policy experts from across the spectrum are warning that the Obama administration is poised to agree to a deal that all but guarantees Tehran the ability to build a nuclear bomb. The position outlined by President Obama and key administration officials in recent…
