In Matthew 24:1-14 Jesus is telling us about the end time. John the Baptist and Jesus both preached, “Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3:2; 4:17) Though Israel rejected Christ as their king, His Kingdom was not defeated.

Back during my time at the U.S. Air Force Academy – “The Zoo” or USAFA as we called it – what we learned came under the “Whole Man Concept.” (There were no women there at the time save as visitors, guests and staff.) That is, we were to learn as much as possible about as many different subje…

A lot of people don’t care about the nation’s growing debt. Some believe that low interest rates for the foreseeable future essentially means a free lunch for the government. Others believe that no matter what the cost of this debt, it is all worth it because of the purported higher returns …

The richest man on Earth briefly lost that title Tuesday morning, but only because for a few floaty minutes he was no longer on Earth. Jeff Bezos has spent two decades using his Amazon wealth to underwrite a rocket venture, Blue Origin. On Tuesday the company launched its first manned flight…

Last week, a federal judge in Houston ruled that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy was “illegal,” which halted accepting incoming applications. I was in South Texas for my father-in-law’s funeral when the news broke. His widow – mi suegra – is one of the strongest women I’ve …

Call me naïve, but I’ve never quite gotten why some politicians want to limit voters’ ability to cast their ballots. Sure, I know that plenty of people like to flip the classic Clausewitz quote and say that politics is war by other means. All’s fair, etc., they insist.

Every policy wonk will tell you that after you live in Washington long enough, you start seeing the same issues reemerge on a regular basis. Common ones are praise for the magical ability of government spending to help pay for itself during recessions and handwringing over the myth of middle…

Signs along the highway read, “Never Leave a Child or Pet Alone in a Car.” But as summer heat grips much of the country, seven children in the U.S. have already died this year from pediatric vehicular heatstroke because they were left unattended in cars.

One of the most amazing and thrilling sights for me back in the 1980s was the rise of Solidarity, the first non-Communist-run trade union in Poland. Harassed and otherwise beset by its Communist government, Solidarity, led by Lech Walesa, persevered in its efforts toward real democratic refo…

America has so many regulations that today, often the only way to do something new, to create something great, to prosper is to ignore rules.

The ongoing effort to reduce funding and authority of law enforcement agencies across the country is having predictably bad effects. In fact, one could be forgiven for seeing it as a no-brainer in advance. Yet the efforts to “defund the [supposedly by-definition-racist] police” are ongoing i…

In June of 2019, my husband and I bought a 1926 suburban brick duplex to create our dream home. The idea was to live in the two-bedroom unit on the second floor while remodeling the first floor. We put solar panels on the roof and a deck off the back, and we gutted the first floor. We even i…

Donald Trump says fraud is the only reason he lost the 2020 election. Some even think Mr. Trump will be reinstated once the truth comes out. Anyone who finds this narrative at all appealing should take 30 minutes to read the investigative report posted by Michigan Republicans. It’s only 35 pages.

If you look at the polls of how Americans feel about the job Congress is doing, they’ve been remarkably consistent for the last few decades. The institution’s favorability rating, as measured by Gallup’s monthly surveys, hasn’t been above 50 percent since 2003; these days it’s in the low 30s…
