Rush: CNN Set Up Trump on Birther Issue

By Rick Pearcey • May 31, 2012, 10:44 AM

As Rush puts it:

Here’s Donald Trump being set up by Blitzer and CNN, for the express purpose of what? Using that interview last night to do nothing but besmirch Romney with Trump and this birther business. That becomes the media narrative all day, so you can talk about Romney and his associations.

Obama Ducks Call to Release Collegiate Transcripts

By Rick Pearcey • May 29, 2012, 12:15 PM

Dave Boyer reports at the Washington Times:

When President Obama gave the commencement address last week at the Air Force Academy, he congratulated the cadets for excelling at one of the most demanding schools in the country.

But decades after Mr. Obama completed his own college course work, his academic performance is still a mystery.

Before and after his election as president, Mr. Obama has refused to release his college transcripts from his days as an undergraduate and a law school student.

VFW Slams MSNBC Host

By Rick Pearcey • May 28, 2012, 11:58 AM

Alex Pappas writes at The Daily Caller:

A spokesman for a leading veterans organization criticized MSNBC’s Chris Hayes for arguing on his television show that that he’s “uncomfortable” describing American soldiers who died in battles as heroes.

“If Mr. Hayes feels uncomfortable, I suggest he enlist, go to war, then come home to what he expects is a grateful nation but encounters the opposite. It’s far too easy to cast stones from inexperience,” Veterans of Foreign Wars spokesman Joe Davis told The Daily Caller on Sunday.

150+ Maine Churches to Launch Campaign Protecting Marriage

By Rick Pearcey • May 25, 2012, 11:56 AM

In an AP story posted at The Blaze:

Scores of Maine churches will pass the collection plate a second time at Sunday services on Father‘s Day to kick off a fundraising campaign for the lead opposition group to November’s ballot question asking voters to legalize same-sex marriages.

Between 150 and 200 churches are expected to raise money for the Protect Marriage Maine political action committee, said Carroll Conley Jr., executive director of the Christian Civic League of Maine evangelical organization and a member of the PAC. Conley is also trying to drum up support for the Maine campaign from religious leaders from around the country.

Kudos to people of goodwill in Maine stepping up to protect kids, families, and marriage from the extremism and aggression of pro-homosexualist activists and their secular enablers in the media and elsewhere.

Love of neighbor includes protecting the neighborhood.

Stand up to monodimensional secularist bullies who despise the wonder and liberation of male-female diversity in marriage.

And overcome those reactionaries who would impose their private, subjective values upon a body politic rooted in verifiable truth rather than relativistic marketing campaigns awash in half-truths, distortion, and invective. 

Here is the Facebook page for Protect Marriage Maine.

Heresy in the Black Studies Tabernacle

By Rick Pearcey • May 17, 2012, 09:59 AM

Bruce Bawer writes at Frontpage.com:

There's the academy, and then there's the real world.

The Chronicle of Higher Education, which is the academy's weekly newspaper of record, has long seemed interested in keeping, if not one foot in the real world, then at least a toe or two in the real world, publishing articles that are written in lively, non-academic prose and even, from time to time, in the name of intellectual diversity, running pieces that take a less than entirely reverential view of higher education's left-wing orthodoxies.

It's a delicate balance -- how much heresy can you allow into the tabernacle without outraging the faithful?

Answer? "Any hint of dissent is verboten."

By Rick Pearcey • May 16, 2012, 06:06 AM

AP reports:

An insurgent Republican lawmaker in Nebraska will square off against former Sen. Bob Kerrey this fall in the state’s U.S. Senate race, as Democrats look to hold onto the Senate seat and control of one part of Capitol Hill.

In Tuesday’s Republican primary, state Sen. Deb Fischer rode a wave of discontent with the GOP establishment to best Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, the preferred candidate of Washington, D.C.-based Republicans, and Treasurer Don Stenberg in a race that drew national attention from outside groups in its final, unpredictable weeks.

Among those who endorsed Fischer: Sarah Palin and Herman Cain.

Pearceys Resign From Rivendell Sanctuary

By Rick Pearcey • May 11, 2012, 08:54 AM

Nancy and I tendered our resignations to Rivendell Sanctuary yesterday. What follows is from the letter of resignation, submitted to CEO Bobby Norment:

We are writing to let you know that our family is moving to Houston, Texas, so that Nancy can assume a new appointment as Scholar in Residence at Houston Baptist University. As a full professor, her duties will include teaching, research & writing, and helping to create a new MA program in Apologetics. Rick is pursuing exciting opportunities that would be premature to announce at this time. 

John Mark Reynolds of the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University was recently announced as the soon-to-be new Provost of HBU.

Here's more news: Today, Nancy and I depart for a series of lectures at the Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Also, there is the recent publication of Darrow Miller's important new book, Emancipating the World: A Christian Response to Radical Islam and Fundamentalist Atheism

I was honored to write the Foreword, which you can read here.

"Most Klansmen and most racists have been Democrats"

By Rick Pearcey • May 8, 2012, 08:54 AM

Walter E. Williams writes:

MSNBC's Chris Matthews, in a recent debate with former Republican National Chairman Michael Steele, called the Republican Party the "grand wizard crowd."

Grand wizard is the title given to the leader of the Ku Klux Klan. It is truly misinformed to call Republicans the party of the Klan.

Throughout our history, most Klansmen and most racists have been Democrats. Here are a few racist quotes from major Democratic figures. . . .

IRS Faces "Legal War" If It Investigates Bishop After Hitler Comments

By Rick Pearcey • May 1, 2012, 09:31 AM

Patrick B. Crane reports at LifeSiteNews:

A pro-life law firm is promising a “legal war” if the Internal Revenue Service heeds a complaint filed two weeks ago against Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria. The complaint came after the bishop said that President Obama’s attack on religious freedom through the contraceptive mandate indicates he “seems intent on following a similar path” as past totalitarian dictators such as Hitler and Stalin.

“The Internal Revenue Service has no legal right to investigate, let alone threaten or penalize, the Catholic Diocese of Peoria for illegal ‘electioneering’ after Bishop Daniel Jenky, C.S.C. referred to policies of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin while delivering a robust, wholly legitimate critique of current federal efforts to quash and curtail religious liberties,” says Tom Brejcha, President of the Thomas More Society, a public interest Chicago-based law firm.

LifeSiteNews also reports that "Brejcha, whose law firm has successfully faced down the IRS twice recently on behalf of pro-life groups, is promising free legal counsel to any religious leader who is threatened for speaking out by the government or interest groups."
