• Judge: Obamacare Paying Insurers without Permission from Congress is Unlawful


    US District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer dealt the Obamacare administration a blow when she sided with House Republicans that the administration was unlawfully paying Obamacare insurers without permission from Congress.

    “None of the secretaries’ extra-textual arguments — whether based on economics, ‘unintended’ results, or legislative history — is persuasive,” wrote Judge Collyner, a George W. Bush appointee, in her comments against secretaries for the Treasury and Health and Human Services departments who claimed they had done nothing wrong. READ MORE...

  • The Odd Idea of a Trump-Rubio Ticket


    It’s still awfully early to start speculating about possible VP candidates, but Jacob Heilbrunn has a suggestion for Trump:

    Perhaps there is a final option for neocons such as Kristol, however. It’s that Trump reaches out to Florida senator Marco Rubio to be his vice president. Before his battering at the hands of Trump — who crowned him ‘little Marco’ — Rubio was the neocons’ finest creation. He is a foreign policy ultra-hawk who touted as his campaign slogan nothing less than a ‘new American century’. On Tuesday, Rubio indicated he would back Trump. Might Trump return the favour by making him his running mate? READ MORE...

  • The Beneficial Functions of Endogenous Retroviruses



    The List of Beneficial Functions for Endogenous Retroviruses (ERVs) Continues to Grow: ERVs also Promote Healthy Immune Responses—Another Creationist Confirmation1

    All viruses are amazing creations by God. They are molecular machines.2 If we couldn’t trust God’s Word from the first verse and if we believed He used evolution to create, we could only conclude that God designed viruses to kill us all the day long. He wouldn’t be the Creator God of the universe that declared everything “very good” anymore because today’s viruses are very bad. From observing very bad viruses without the clear teaching of Scripture regarding sin and its ushering in of disease and death, we could only conclude that any god or gods are only remotely part of our existence (if at all). God would be reduced to a cosmic killjoy responsible for very bad viruses and doing nothing about them. However, we have Scripture and know that it is without error, so we know that this world contains very bad things because of man’s sin (not because of God). Just because this world has very bad things in it doesn’t mean that God didn’t originally create everything perfect and call it “very good” (cf. Genesis 1:31). The existence of very bad things like viruses should simply remind us that we live in a fallen world. READ MORE...

  • Donald Trump and the "Pain Principle"


    There are some among my friends and esteemed colleagues who claim that they absolutely will not vote for billionaire Donald Trump should he officially secure the GOP nomination at the Republican convention later this year because he is not a real conservative with a proven conservative track record. Others assert that they absolutely would not have voted for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz if he had secured the GOP nomination because he is not a natural born citizen of the United States as stipulated in Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, of the U.S. Constitution. READ MORE...

  • The wrong lesson on Hiroshima


    Later this month, President Obama will make a historic visit to Hiroshima, becoming the first sitting American president to visit either of the two sites on which the United States dropped an atomic bomb at the close of World War II.

    Mr. Obama’s visit, to be accompanied by Japanese Prime MinisterShinzo Abe, will highlight the maturity and depth of the U.S.-Japan alliance. Despite the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, the Bataan Death March, the brutal combat on Iwo Jima and elsewhere, the fire bombings, and the atomic bombings on the home islands, the U.S. and Japan have since forged an enduring partnership—one that has greatly benefited both countries and the rest of Asia.

  • Communist Democrats Demand Gun Confiscation: Background Checks are not Enough!


    The political winds continue to shift, and the Democrat Party seems to be growing ever more confident about their immediate future because they are getting ever more aggressive about infringing on our rights.

    Whether it’s about forcing us into genderless bathrooms, or forcing us to do work we find morally repugnant, or telling us what we can and cannot say (or think), the Democrats are assaulting our freedom on many different fronts. Now they’ve moved back to one of their favorite tyrannical hobbyhorses… the 2ndAmendment. READ MORE...
