Editorial: God bless Kim Davis for her faith

 

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis believes in Jesus Christ and the Bible and she is willing to stand up for what she believes. For that, a federal judge has put her in jail. Davis understands that the Bible teaches – in the Old Testament and New Testament – that marriage is a holy bond between […]

Editorial: Financial rumblings in the market

 

It’s coming, folks. The volatility in the Stock Market earlier this month is just a warmup for a big financial adjustment that could really damage American families. The “perfect storm” could be on our doorstep. Our national debt is $16,700,000,000,000.00 and rising. Congress just can’t stop borrowing and spending. American Treasury bonds are no longer […]

Editorial: President Obama’s inaction

 

While racists among the Black Lives Matter movement advocate the murder of police officers, President Obama is silent. In a period in our history when a president could use his bully pulpit to bring people closer together, Obama, America’s first black president, won’t denounce the dangerous rhetoric against law enforcement. His stance or inaction isn’t […]

Editorial: Presidential lies about energy

 

President Obama said his energy policies will mean lower energy bills for Americans. That’s just a lie. In August, Obama said Americans are choosing wind and solar power because “they like saving money.” That is so far from the truth that it is laughable. Energy costs for homeowners are skyrocketing because of Obama’s war on […]

Editorial: Journalism versus activism

 

At a Dubuque, Iowa, press conference in August, Univision reporter Jorge Ramos stood up and started asking presidential hopeful Donald Trump a series of questions that were more accusations than inquiries. “You weren’t called,” said Trump. “Sit down.” As Ramos, who is based in Miami at the Spanish-language network, continued, Trump told him to sit […]

Editorial: Christian religious persecution

 

Some Denver city councilors want to prevent the Denver Airport from allowing a Chick-fil-A restaurant in the airport. Why? Because the CEO of Chick-fil-A believes that marriage is between one man and one woman. The councilors are not alleging discrimination by the restaurant chain or its employees. No, this is a classic case of “viewpoint […]

Letter to the editor: The lives of unborn babies matter, too

    

Do Black Lives Really Matter? The black community is protesting police departments across the country, carrying signs saying “Black Lives Matter!”  Black “leaders” like Al Sharpton, are leading these protestors and telling the world that “police departments in the United States have a vendetta against black people and are not treating them fairly.” And when […]

Letter to the editor: EPA misfires with WOTUS

    

With the EPA threatening to enforce its egregious Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rules, farmers and ranchers are among a growing list of Americans who fear the heavy hand of a bureaucratic federal agency. During a recent town hall meeting, U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, R-Oklahoma, said the EPA is the most hated federal agency in […]

Editorial: Banning the Ten Commandments

 

What issue could unite Jewish rabbis with Muslims who are part of an organization linked with extremism? In Oklahoma, those two groups plus ultra-liberal “Christian” organizations have joined forces in a “noble” cause to ban display of the Ten Commandments from public view. That’s right. So-called Christians, nonorthodox Jews and Muslims can’t stand the idea […]

Editorial: Obama and the heroin epidemic

 

America has a heroin epidemic and that shouldn’t surprise anyone. President Obama promotes a socialist government that emphasizes entitlement and minimizes the value of work. When people don’t work and aren’t encouraged to work, they turn to alcohol and drug abuse. It’s gotten so bad that Obama had a big announcement that he would spend […]
