Conservative Truth
He Should have asked The Question
Dr. Tom Barrett
On Fox News Sunday today (February 18, 2018), one of my favorite commentators missed a major opportunity to ask a vital question of one of President Trump's key advisors. Wallace is known for asking tough questions of his guests, even when he knows asking them may mean that guest will never return. So why did he fail to ask The Question today?
 
It is a question if asked and acted upon that could change the entire course of the president’s next seven years, allow Congress to do its job, and guarantee continued Republican control of both Houses of Congress. It is probably the most important question anyone could ask the president or his staff. I don’t expect the Liberal news media to ask it because it is not in their interest for the American people to think along these lines. But as Wallace interviewed Trump’s OMB (Office of Management and Budget) Director, I was shouting at him to ask The Question. Read more...

Writers with more direct experience than I have in Balkan politics have cast serious doubt upon the justice of this trial. But even more, the case is only one example of how political operatives today can clothe their political ambitions in judicial robes.  Read more...

Our founders, who were learned students of political history, also knew this. It is why they set up a unique system of deliberate checks and balances, represented by three separate but equal branches. It is also why the founders fashioned the Electoral College, to prevent such majoritarian tyranny. Through republicanism, the minority will always maintain a voice in governance, and why the left seeks to undermine it. Unlike a republic, a democracy allows for the temporary passions of the public to overrun reason and directly affect laws.  Read more...

While I have strong criticism of leftist black leaders who attack racism (whether real or not) as a reason to live, I do demand equal and fair treatment for everyone - so that would include blacks. I resist, ridicule, and reject any special treatment for any group, but since this is Black History Month, I want to praise my boyhood hero, Booker T. Washington - a fellow West Virginian who rose from slavery to scholarship, from poverty to prosperity, and from intentional humility to international honor.  Read more...

The National Cathedral in D.C. is a magnificent Gothic building but it is full of dead men’s bones. Christ’s comparable term was “whited (whitewashed) sepulcher.” The official name of the church is Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in the City and Diocese of Washington, but I’m convinced Peter and Paul would not be welcome in their pulpit.  Read more...

“Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?" If you’re a fan of vintage radio from the 1930’s, you will recognize this idiom and possess the ability to respond to this query from the popular detective broadcast, the answer was, “The Shadow Knows."  Read more...

So while I don’t believe Jesus won the Super Bowl for the city of Philadelphia this year, I do believe by His providential hand through many of his disciples the stage was set for a free-market society where sports and entertainment can thrive. This is just another reason we should all be grateful to Jesus Christ and His gracious love towards us. Read more...

My wife Becky thinks there is much truth in the idea that, the more someone complains, the longer God will let them live. I’ll have to think about that one. One thing is for sure, complaining is draining to both the complainer and those around them. Here is a story about complaining to get us thinking.  Read more...
As a country, our collective acceptance of Clinton set the table for the audacity of Obama.

Nearly 44 years after his resignation, I found myself contemplating the much-maligned Richard Milhous Nixon and his political demise. Inevitably, the behaviors of William Jefferson Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama came to mind. Comparing and contrasting the men came about because of one word – honor – as summed up by one Nixonian phrase: “...what was best for the nation.”  Read more...

Conservatives constantly complain about a lack of transparency in Washington, and for good reason. Just look at the Mueller investigation, the FBI, and FISA. But on at least one issue, things are as transparent as they can be.

This issue is immigration and the transparency is John McCain's white-hot hatred of Donald Trump. McCain will not miss a single opportunity to stick a finger in the eye of Trump, regardless of the damage to his Party and especially the nation.

And so it is yet again as the great Maverick of the Senate, John McCain, joined forces with democrat Chris Coons to introduce their own “bipartisan” immigration proposal. Read more...

In 2012, Proctor & Gamble introduced laundry detergent in pod form. It was simple and easy to use. I’ve been using them for years. They’re great. However, poison control facilities began receiving calls. Evidently, little kids, thinking they were candy, were eating them.

May I ask the obvious? Where are the parents? Oh that’s right. Parents are no longer wholly responsible for their OWN kids. It is up to the village, as in, 'it takes a village to raise a child.'  Read more...

The idea of an American military parade came evidently from Trump’s attendance at the recent French military parade, where he was the guest of honor.

“The French march well. We fight well. Take your pick,” Lt. Col. Ralph Peters told FOX News. “If we really want to honor our troops and support them, pass the defense budget. Give them the tools and the funding they need.”   Read more...
