The sham of a mockery that was Michael Sam’s attempt to re-enter the NFL via the Veteran Combine has been exposed. Weeks ago in a CNS News article, I forewarned that Sam’s decision to participate in “Dancing with the Stars,” airing only one week before the start of the combine, would hurt Sam physically. He was supposed to be training for football at that time. Not learning the Rumba.

A new report by the non-partisan Tax Foundation shows that America has higher capital gains tax rates than other industrialized countries. Nevertheless, President Obama is pushing Congress to raise taxes on capital gains still further. America’s tax treatment of capital gains already raises the cost of capital and reduces investment, and raising rates would create more disincentives to business investment and growth.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report showing that over a three-year period, groups that advocate for or whose affiliates perform abortions have received hundreds of millions of dollars from the federal government.

When PLO leader, Yasser Arafat, negotiated a “peace” treaty with Israel, he was criticized by other Muslims for conceding too much. Arafat responded with, what would be to the West, a cryptic response. “I see this agreement as being no more than the agreement signed between our Prophet Muhammad and the Quraish in Mecca.”

It is easy to dismiss the decay of Christian morals as a sign of the times against which not much can be done. For example, many see the fact that the traditional family is no longer considered a means for the security of our future as simply a sign of the times. The same might be said about the denial that a father and a mother constitute the two most natural and normal components of a family.

In recent months, heartbreaking stories of Americans such as Brittany Maynard struggling with devastating diagnoses have captured our empathy—and launched a national conversation about physician-assisted suicide. In response, activists are using these stories to advance legislation that has otherwise been rejected by the people.

The Washington Post recently published two opinion pieces in which the authors claimed that the economic policies of President Ronald Reagan—called Reaganomics—wreaked financial havoc on African Americans. To the contrary, the incomes of black households and families broadly rose during the Reagan administration, while in contrast, they have generally fallen during the current economic recovery.

Christians in America closely watched the recent elections in Israel, relieved and hopeful when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was elected to a fourth term in a resounding victory.

Recently, members of the Oklahoma chapter of the SAE fraternity were caught on video chanting a mind-bogglingly racist song that included “a line that suggests lynching blacks is preferable to admitting them in the fraternity.” Quite reasonably, the national fraternity “shut down the chapter.” More controversially, the University of Oklahoma (which, unlike the fraternity, is part of the government and thus constrained by the First Amendment) expelled two of the fraternity members.

Then, as now, for publicity and profit, the race hustlers stoke the very societal divisiveness they claim to abhor — and knee-jerk journalists suffering institutional amnesia aid and abet them.

Ted Cruz is unacceptable to the liberal media because he won't compromise. An unsigned staff editorial in The Washington Post is steeped in denial, if not intellectual obfuscation, ignoring the governing reality of Obama, the uncompromising wacko bird.

One thing is clear: It should now be our policy to support — not destabilize — secular Middle Eastern and North African regimes that resist, for their own reasons, militant Islamic radicals.

If you like your shower, you probably can't keep it once the bureaucrats are done. The War on Women and Men Taking Showers began with a 1992 law that restricts how much water can flow through each nozzle. In 2010, the feds cracked down against multiple-nozzle showerheads. Now the EPA wants to limit how long we can stay in the shower.

One of the popular arguments for legalizing abortion on demand is that it helps to protect maternal health. The claim that abortion generally is safer for pregnant women than giving birth has been made by “pro-choice” advocates of abortion-on-demand for decades. Despite being frequently discredited and buried by medical and other scientific studies around the world, the “abortion-is-safer-than-childbirth” argument still is regularly resurrected.

A school in Virginia suspended an 11-year-old boy for 364 days after he brought a leaf to class that resembled marijuana.

Some conservative groups have become known for uncompromising opposition to the Constitution’s convention method of proposing constitutional amendments.

I believe that Cruz, like so many of us, has had it up to here with the lawless practices of President Obama and wanted to make a pronounced public statement of dissent and to call out Obama for what he is doing.

Though "Bibi" Netanyahu won re-election last week, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations will still look into whether the State Department financed a clandestine effort to defeat him.

The Economist magazine recently published "What's gone wrong with Democracy ... and what can be done to revive it?" The suggestion is that democracy is some kind of ideal for organizing human conduct. That's a popular misconception.

National Geographic’s latest cover story generated lots of attention for comparing climate change skeptics to those who fear vaccinations, disbelieve NASA’s moon landing, and oppose water fluoridation.

The New York Times is nowhere closer to viewpoint diversity. The ideological range is still radical-left to country club liberal Republican.

Bibi Netanyahu is looking out for Israel first. America needs a president like Ike who will start looking out for America first.

This scandal pattern is as obnoxious as it is predictable. A liberal newspaper breaks a serious news story about a liberal, everyone might take it seriously for a week or 10 days, but then it dies without resolution.

This is the new platform of the congressional wing of the party Ronald Reagan once led: We will increase federal spending by 3.3 percent per year.
