3 Lessons Our Politicians Should Learn From Fort Hood
  8 Apr 2014     12:06 am

As with all Americans, my wife, Gena, and I had our hearts broken again last Wednesday as we heard about another killing spree at Fort Hood, Texas, in which four people died and 16 more were injured at the U.S. Army’s largest active-duty installation.

Chelsea Schilling, WorldNetDaily’s commentator editor and journalist extraordinaire, reported shortly after the tragedy: “The shooter, identified as 34-year-old Ivan Lopez, is among the dead. Lopez reportedly died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” but only after being confronted by a courageous female military police officer in the parking …

US Air Force Airbrushes Religious Liberty Again
  1 Apr 2014     12:06 am

Fox News reported a few weeks ago about how the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., removed a Bible verse from a cadet’s personal whiteboard. I am personally so disappointed that the branch of service that I served in to protect our freedoms is now trying to suppress them.

When one walks the dorm halls of the Air Force Academy, one immediately notices the hundreds of whiteboards hanging on students’ doors. This past week, Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., cited Air Force officials who explained that cadets “often use these boards …

Obamacare’s Oh-bummers for Americans
  25 Mar 2014     12:06 am

With Obamacare’s March 31 sign-up deadline and subsequent penalties looming over the heads of young and old Americans, citizens are wondering more than ever — and with good reason, I might add — whether Washington has dished out another bill of bad goods. And here are a few more solid reasons our skepticism about socialist medicine continues.

Reporter Bob Unruh at WorldNetDaily recently reported about how Obamacare is blocking patients from paying for their own treatments. The feds are already capping what some citizens can spend on their own health care, …

Living Beyond Limits
  18 Mar 2014     12:06 am

At 15 years of age, Amy Purdy took up snowboarding and quickly advanced in the sport she came to love and master.
At 19, Amy contracted meningococcal meningitis. She had less than a 2 percent chance of living.

Amy miraculously survived, but not without the life-altering loss of her spleen, her kidneys, the hearing in her left ear and both of her legs below the knee because of the ravage of the disease upon her circulatory system.
But against all the odds, Amy learned not only to walk again but also to snowboard. …

America’s Founders and Legalizing Marijuana (Part 3)
  11 Mar 2014     12:06 am

In the first two parts of this series, I explained the comparative dangers and health risks of alcohol and marijuana. To elevate one over the other is like saying a plain doughnut isn’t so bad as a glazed one. The point is that neither of the drugs is good for us or our culture.

We examined both of their addictive natures, the withdrawal symptoms and the hazards they create when those using them operate motor vehicles. We then looked at what science has concluded about their effects on our minds, bodies …

Alcohol, Marijuana and the Youth of America (Part 2)
  4 Mar 2014     12:06 am

A few weeks ago, I began to show from extensive studies and evidence how alcohol use and marijuana use compare in terms of addiction, withdrawal and using motorized vehicles.

This week, I will discuss in greater detail how alcohol and marijuana compare in their effects on our minds, bodies and relationships. And then I want to conclude by addressing the most overlooked aspect of the marijuana legalization debate: its effects on the youth of America.
CNN recently reported on multiple studies on alcohol and marijuana use. Of course, we know that long-term …

A Force More Powerful Than Oscar
  25 Feb 2014     12:06 am

I don’t have to explain to anyone how television is much more risqué, with some programs being downright lewd, than it was decades ago. But I want to tell you about something that can change the course of values in television and movies.

Once upon a time, about as edgy as it got was Barbara Eden’s “I Dream of Jeannie” character, who showed her trim tummy, and Elvis swinging his pelvis on “The Ed Sullivan Show” — though the broadcast screen only captured the upper half of his body as he …

When Sportsmanship Trumps Cereal Boxes
  18 Feb 2014     12:06 am

There are those who are champions on courses of competition. Then there are those who are victors in their caliber of character, too. In our often wayward world, the latter ought to be given not just a gold medal but a golden crown.

Being dead last is never fun. I would imagine that it is particularly painful if you’ve trained like a world champion, traveled halfway around the world and are competing at the Winter Olympics.
Roberto Carcelen of Peru was racing in a 15-kilometer cross-country skiing event. One unique hurdle he …

What Is Your ‘Back 16 Japan’?
  11 Feb 2014     12:06 am

(Editor’s note: Chuck has postponed the second part of his series “Alcohol vs. Marijuana” until after the Winter Olympics so he can address some moments of inspiration from the games.)
American snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg, a native of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, made the decision of his life in Olympic competition over the weekend, and it paid off big-time, with the first American gold medal — and the first gold medal in general — in the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Whatever our aspirations, his example shows us the way to our ticket …

The Super Bowl, the Olympics and the Best of America
  4 Feb 2014     12:06 am

Football. Olympics. The mere terms reflect pride, passion and the American way.
Football is one of the best pastimes in our country, and its crescendo reached its zenith this past Sunday with the Super Bowl. Congratulations to the NFL champions, the Seattle Seahawks.

There are few events better than sitting (and standing) with family and friends cheering on your favorite team in that ultimate competition. And it’s a pretty good excuse for munching the best of American grub as you do!
Also, the Winter Olympics are about to begin — Friday, Feb. 7, …

Alcohol vs. Marijuana (Part 1)
  28 Jan 2014     12:06 am

I understand the arguments for the legalization of marijuana: It can generate tax revenue. It can reduce illegal supply and demand. It can strip power from cartels and lessen crime across and at our borders. And it isn’t so dangerous as other illegal drugs or alcohol.

President Barack Obama even claimed one of those arguments when he recently told New Yorker Editor David Remnick, “As has been well-documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes …

Obama Bullying Nuns (Part 3)
  21 Jan 2014     12:06 am

With the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade this week, it’s time to blow the whistle on the greatest advocate of abortion in the modern age: President Barack Obama.

To date, it is still unknown when U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will rule on whether or not Obama and Obamacare will force a group of nuns — the Little Sisters of the Poor — to provide contraception, including drugs that possibly induce abortions, to the employees at the care facility for the elderly that they run or be fined because …

Obama Bullying Nuns (Part 2)
  14 Jan 2014     12:06 am

Last week, I pointed out how PolitiFact crowned the promoter in chief’s sound bite for Obamacare the “Lie of the Year” for 2013: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”

I also made a prediction that among his top 10 falsehood contenders for 2014 will be a reversal of what he emphatically stated back on Sept. 9, 2009: “Under our (health care reform) plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions.”
I showed how President Barack Obama already has repeatedly broken that promise over the past …

The Case For Christmas (Part 2)
  31 Dec 2013     12:06 am

Last week, I cited “The Case for Christmas,” an excellent little book that is full of evidence of the reason in the reason for the season, by Lee Strobel, an investigative journalist at the Chicago Tribune who was educated at Yale Law School and was once an atheist.

I gave snapshots from scholars he interviewed in answering two of four critical questions to decipher fact from fantasy in the Christmas story:
1) Can the biographies of Jesus (in the Bible) be trusted?
2) Does archaeology confirm or contradict Jesus’ biographies?
3) Did Jesus fulfill …

The Case For Christmas (Part 1)
  24 Dec 2013     12:06 am

Lee Strobel earned a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, became the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and was a spiritual skeptic until 1981. I recently read his short 91-page booklet titled “The Case for Christmas,” in which he viewed the sacred holiday as an investigative journalist and interviewed scholars on the heart of its meaning. You can call his book “The Rationale, or Reason, in the Reason for the Season.”

Strobel explained in his Introduction, “Essentially, that’s what I did for a living as …

American Hostages, My Granddaughters, and the Hope of the World
  17 Dec 2013     12:06 am

I’m interrupting my series on Common Core State Standards for public schools to join the appeal to Iran and North Korea for the release of American hostages like imprisoned American pastor Saeed Abedini and missionary Kenneth Bae. And I’m also calling upon President Obama and Congress to step up their action, stand for religious freedom and fight for the release of these godly men, whose crimes were nothing more than exercising their faith.

For those who haven’t followed the news on these men of the cloth, pastor Abedini was sentenced to …

Is Common Core Good for Kids and Teachers? (Part 5)
  10 Dec 2013     12:06 am

Advocates of Common Core State Standards love to point out how 45 states and the District of Columbia have voluntarily adopted this new national public school regimen. What they’re not telling you, however, is how federal and state funds were used to muscle its adoption or how expert reviews and efficacy shortfalls have prompted political and educational action in at least 17 of those states to restrict or reverse the tides of CCSS rollout, according to a brand-new report in The Huffington Post.

In August, Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Oklahoma and Utah …

Feds’ 3 Tentacles in the Common Core (Part 4)
  3 Dec 2013     12:06 am

In Part 1 of my series on the Common Core State Standards being infused into 45 state public school systems, I revealed how the feds spent $350 million of taxpayer money, giving grants and waivers to muscle states and local school districts to accept the standards. And that was after 2009, when feds awarded, in the Department of Education’s words, “governors approximately $48.6 billion … in exchange for a commitment to advance essential education reforms … including: college- and career-ready standards (aka CCSS).”

In Part 2, I showed how the feds …

Feds’ 3 Tentacles in the Common Core (Part 3)
  26 Nov 2013     12:06 am

After months of the feds doing everything they could to distance themselves from the origin and launch of the controversial Common Core State Standards, more and more of Washington’s tentacles are surfacing through public rage, implementation revelations and the White House’s own foot-in-mouth disease.

After Education Secretary Arne Duncan cast bigoted blame on “white suburban moms” for nationwide resistance to CCSS — an oops from which he still is reeling in public humiliation and maternal fury — White House spokesman Jay Carney dodged Duncan bullets by claiming ignorance to his statements. …
