The Presidency
Rubio’s response to Obama –
I am not going to join the thousands of others examining the list of Obama’s promises in the State of the Union address, promises he claims will cost nothing. As a social conservative I do want to point our the fourth paragraph of Senator Marco Rubio’s response to Obama: “But America is exceptional because we believe that every life, at every stage, is precious, and that everyone everywhere has a God-given right to go as far as their talents and hard work will take them.” This strong pro-life statement that life is precious “at every stage” has been ignored by the conservative media. Why?

Ft. Hood hero says “Obama betrayed us” –Three years after the White House arranged a hero’s welcome at the State of the Union address for the Fort Hood police sergeant and her partner who stopped the deadly shooting there, Kimberly Munley says President Obama broke the promise he made to her that the victims would be well taken care of.

Obama stunned at Prayer Breakfast – Dr. Benjamin Carson, holder of the Medal of Freedom, shocked President Barack Obama as he spoke against political correctness and the horrendous debt facing our nation at the National Prayer Breakfast. Obama sat emotionless just a few feet from Dr. Carlson as he tore apart the President’s agenda. Video of speech here.

McCain rationalizes arming Islamists –
To make an omelet, eggs have to be broken. In Syria the Christians are the eggs and the omelet is the containment of Iran. In an interview with Chris Wallace, Senator John McCain explained his reasoning behind wanting to arm the jihadists in Syria this way: “There is a national security component; it would be the greatest blow to Iran, in the last 25 years, if Bashar al-Assad fell, not to mention Hezbollah.” In other words it is good to bring al-Qaeda to power in Syria if it means our “greatest enemy,” Iran, is damaged by that action. How did that work for us in Afghanistan when we armed the Islamists to oust our “greatest enemy” at the time, the Soviet Union?
Religion and Culture
MovieGuide Gala –
This evening I will be participating in the MovieGuide Gala at the Universal City Hilton Hotel. For decades MovieGuide.org has given families reviews of movies that can be counted on, by evaluating language, sexual and violent content. The spiritual worldview of films is also examined. Founded by Ted Baehr, the MovieGuide.org organization has helped Hollywood reduce the number of R rated movies by half in the last two decades. I will be offering the closing prayer at the Gala which will be shown on the Hallmark Channel later this year.
Violence proves the weakness of Islam – Islamic scholar Dr. Mark Durie exposes the apostasy laws as proof of the weakness of the religion of Islam. Muslim leaders must literally kill people to stop them from converting to other religions. The growth of Islam since Mohammed has been through violence. Read more

UK: “Moderate” mosque hosts fund raiser for terrorist –
