Is the Christian world about to suffer through another World Vision moment?

Gingrich: ‘New fascism’ . . .

N American Ice Age copy

By Larry Leonard

April 7, 2014 — He’s talking here about global warming, according to this piece intended to trash him. It’s a juvenile piece, like so much of what passes for modern journalism. If you go to it, its one of those that is set up sticky. Hard for some computers to get back

The Communist States of America

By J. Matt Barber

A preferred ploy of left-wing change agents is to ridicule critics when they point out the undeniable parallels between the goals of today’s “progressive” movement, to include the Democratic Party in general, and the goals of the early, and very much still alive, communist movement.

If, for instance,

Crowd-sourcing the Malaysian plane disappearance

Malaysian airline copy

The internet and of course the pubic media are all exploding with discussions about this subject. But it’s in the internet where the action really is: the billions of interactive discussions and comments, where one or several of which has hit the jackpot, with the lotto winner announcement yet to be made.

The chances

Send Copy of This to Everyone You Know

By Fred Delkin Oregon magazine readers are urged to send the following to everyone they know. It violates all those standards we all learned when we took our first writing class. Be certain you address a copy to the President of our nation. Unleashed by his second elected term, Obama runs wild. He shows no

No Political Fix to America’s Death Spiral

Truth Lies

By J. Matt Barber

The question is not, “Is America falling?” but, rather, “Why is America falling?”

I’m currently writing from CPAC 2014, the nation’s largest gathering of conservative political junkies. The event is being held at the beautiful Gaylord National hotel, adjacent to the scenic shoreline of the historic Potomac River.

An Absolute Right to Refuse Service

By J. Matt Barber

Albert Einstein once said, “Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.”

He was right.

In the aftermath of the Arizona religious freedom skirmish, I have a few questions for those who would presume to compel religious business owners,

Snapshots in Time

Oregon morning

by Larry Leonard

February 28, 2014 – – Rudyard Kipling in Captain’s Courageous described one boy’s youth during one period of time as a misguided exercise in the misuse of power. I don’t recall the name of the man who told me that a life is a journey on a railroad train that

The North Star of Hollywood

Stalin et al copy

By Larry Leonard

February 21, 2014 — In the early 1940′s, Sam Goldwyn made a movie starring John Huston, Dana Andrews and Anne Baxter. (It was released in ’43.) The story began in a happy Stalinist agricultural commune in the Ukraine. There was nothing but plenty in this place. The girls all had

Sex-Obsessed Lefty Horrified by ‘Toxic Purity Culture’

By J. Matt Barber

Hey, gals, want to avoid being raped? Put away that Lady Smith 38. No need for pepper spray. Self-defense classes? Not necessary. The solution is simple. The best defense against rape is to just cast away your “deeply troubling” Christianity and become a secularist slut.

Not to Impeach is Racist

Lady Justice

by Art Hyland

If there is one thread that weaves throughout the conservative landscape it is this: if Barack Hussein Obama were a Republican, impeachment proceedings would have been seriously considered long ago, and the general mass media would have been providing the grist for it.

Here’s the argument that

Oregon’s Czar for All Seasons

Kitzaber

By Art Hyland

Democrats were ecstatic in 2010 when they learned that ex-Governor Kitzhaber was still willing to run for office again. No reason to vet someone with his liberal experience and history. It was basically anyone but a Republican, something of a mantra in Oregon politics. But it seems that Oregon has

Ducks Threaten Pac12 2014 Football Title Run

Oregon Ducks

By Fred Delkin

“Any failsport ignoring the Pac12 network coverage of almost every organized team sport activity known to humans deserves severe condemnation.”

Mariota’s bum leg gave Pac12 rivals late season relief last fall, though the Oregon QB showed a full recovery by bowl time…just ask Texas. Given full health in 2014, the

The Constitution Has a Big Tiller

SchoonerView

January 18, 2014 — A knife may be used to cut vegetables or throats. You can tell which is going on by looking for blood on the floor. A Constitution is a tool, as well. Like some boats, it has a tiller. From the standpoint of civil rights, the national economy, foreign relations and the

Obama Moves to Weaponize IRS

By Matt Barber

In 2010 millions of American tea-party constitutionalists, to include the GOP’s Christian base, united in a remarkable grass-roots effort to rein in our unbridled federal government and return it to its expressly limited constitutional confines. As a result, an unprecedented number of counter-constitutionalist lawmakers (read: liberal Democrats) were swept from office.

The
