Hugh Hewitt: 2017 And The Big Story Elite Media Missed

12/28/2017
More
As we approach a new year, it is clear that 2017 will be remembered as a momentous year for news. Perhaps the biggest story of the year will turn out to be this: How the United States defeated ISIS and its caliphate, and almost no one took notice. When ISIS was roaring to power, under the watchful eye of the Obama Administration, no one could figure out how to stop them. In less than a year, under the military guidance of the Trump Administration, ISIS has been defeated and Iraq and Syria...

David Davenport: Jerry Brown’s Blue Christmas

12/27/2017
More
California governor Jerry Brown has been everywhere, preaching the gospel of blue-state California. California wildfires are the curse of climate change, he told 60 Minutes, while he whisks off to yet another climate conference in Paris, warning that the world is on the road to hell. He says the new federal tax cuts are a “monstrosity,” while he raises taxes at home. Brown has turned California into a blue-state model of governance, but all is not calm or bright. Even with higher taxes and...

Lanhee Chen: Significant Accomplishments For GOP And Trump In 2017

12/22/2017
More
It’s been an eventful year in American politics, but don’t let the hype distract from the reality. It’s also been a year of significant accomplishments for the Republican Congress and, yes, President Donald Trump. Congress passed significant legislation to cut taxes for many middle-class taxpayers, make our economy more competitive, and set the groundwork for long-term gains in wages, job creation and economic growth. The tax cut bill also dealt a big blow to Obamacare, by neutering the...

Albert Mohler: RC Sproul 1939 - 2017

12/22/2017
More
On Thursday December 14th, R.C. Sproul met his Savior, Jesus Christ, face to face. My own pilgrimage as a theologian cannot be traced without the indelible influence of R.C. Sproul. He was one of the great defenders of historic Christianity of our times. It is fair to say that R.C. was the greatest and most influential proponent of the recovery of Reformed theology in the last century. He was a stalwart defender of the Word of God, and one of the primary architects of the Chicago Statement...

Albert Mohler: The Full Joy Of Christmas

12/22/2017
More
‘Tis the season for Christmas carols, and one of the beautiful of our carols asks the most important question of all: “What child is this, who, laid to rest, on Mary’s lap is sleeping?” Christmas demands an answer to that question. Even with all the fanfare and frantic activity of the season, that question remains. Even though commercialism and secularism and political correctness try to push the question aside, the question still stands. In the stillness of a winter’s night, the question...

A Christmas Story Special

12/21/2017
More
Townhall Review -- December 23, 2017 In this special edition of the Townhall Review, Michael Medved tells the story of Christmas, from the humble beginnings of Jesus Christ’s birth to Saint Nicholas to Santa Clause. Medved shares how Christmas was both frowned upon and celebrated in colonial America and how General George Washington used the holiday to his advantage in the Revolutionary War. Dennis Prager rounds out the show by expressing his gratitude for religion and particularly...

Albert Mohler: The Message And Majesty Of Handel’s "Messiah"

12/21/2017
More
Everyone knows about George Frideric Handel, but few remember Charles Jennens, but it was Jennens who wrote and conceived the idea of the “Messiah,” the massive oratorio that is performed thousands of times worldwide at Christmas. Jennens wrote the libretto—the text—of the “Messiah,” tying together the Bible’s central story: God’s salvation of His people through the work of the Messiah. He used the very words of the Bible for his text. Jennens had a purpose in his project, and that was to...

Michael Medved: Hanukkah Affirms History Over Fantasy

12/20/2017
More
During the eight-day festival of Hanukah, it’s worthwhile to connect the holiday to recent controversies surrounding Jerusalem. The joyous holiday celebrates the purification and re-dedication of Jerusalem’s Second Temple in 164 BC, but today the official Palestinian position denies that this Temple ever even existed. That absurd notion not only contradicts hundreds of references in both Old and New Testaments, but also goes against incontrovertible historical and archaeological evidence....

Jerry Bowyer: The True Meaning Of A Christmas Carol

12/19/2017
More
“If they would rather die they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.” With that quote, Ebenezer Scrooge makes perfectly clear the true political message of “A Christmas Carol.” Dickens was writing amidst a wave of hysteria about population growth, triggered shortly before by Thomas Malthus, who argued that reproduction would exceed growth in food. Scrooge was both anti-procreation and anti-marriage. He fell out with his nephew Fred simply because the latter decided to...

Albert Mohler: A Political Earthquake In Alabama

12/18/2017
More
A political earthquake recently occurred in the state of Alabama. For the first time since 1992, the voters of Alabama elected a Democrat to the United States Senate. That Democrat, Doug Jones, bested Republican Roy Moore who was embroiled in accusations of sexual misconduct with women who were minors at the time. Ever since the 2016 presidential election, many people in America have been asking how voters will resolve the conflict between political convictions and the character of a...

Michael Medved: What all the Abusers and Harassers Have in Common

12/15/2017
More
Recent charges of assault and harassment have destroyed powerful figures in every field of endeavor. These accusations have afflicted liberals and conservatives, straight and gay, black and white, with only one factor linking every one of the accused: they are all men. That's not because women have no power to abuse: females occupy some commanding heights in politics, business and entertainment, yet no woman producer used a casting couch like Weinstein, and none of the 105 women in...

Townhall Review -- December 16, 2017 Hugh Hewitt invites Congressman Jim Jordan to share the latest about the growing FBI scandal and conspiracy surrounding the unreleased FBI emails. Kimberly Strassel, of the Wall Street Journal, who has been tracking every twist and turn of this story, shares more on this story with Dennis Prager. Following the Alabama Senate election, Hugh Hewitt speaks with Congressman Mike Gallagher about what the election implications will be in Congress. Tom Von...

Hugh Hewitt: A Blockbuster Revelation At The FBI

12/13/2017
More
The Washington Post recently reported that a former top FBI official, Peter Strzok, who had previously been assigned to and then removed from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation, had “exchanged politically charged texts disparaging [President] Trump and supporting Democrat Hillary Clinton” and that Strzok was also “a key player in the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server.” This is a blockbuster revelation, carrying the possibility of shattering...

Jerry Bowyer: A Necessary Fix On Tax Reform

12/12/2017
More
The Senate version of tax reform has a hidden problem which needs to be addressed. It would greatly increase the tax burden on companies which are in debt. When a company expands operations, by say, building a factory, they usually borrow money to do it. The tax code has always allowed business to take the cost of that borrowing into account when they calculate their profit for the sensible reason that it is a cost of doing business. Tax reform is cutting that back, and the Senate version...

Albert Mohler: Masterpiece Cake Shop And The Future Of Religious Liberty

12/11/2017
More
This past Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case formally known as “Masterpiece Cake Shop vs. The Colorado Civil Rights Commission.” In terms of religious liberty, there has been no recent case before the Supreme Court more important than this one. The backstory is that in 2012, Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop, denied a request made by two men to create a cake in order to celebrate their marriage. Jack Phillips and his attorneys from the Alliance...

Hugh Hewitt: Our Culture And The Sexual Misconduct Crisis

12/8/2017
More
Sometimes we have to remind ourselves of the good thing that can come when a bad thing happens. The recent wave of sexual misconduct is very disturbing. We can probably call this “the Great Purge,” how American society woke up and rid itself of bad and boorish behavior—sometimes worse than bad and boorish, sometimes criminal—from men taking advantage of their powerful positions. The good thing in all of this is the opportunities for recourse that are now being afforded young women who had...

Michael Medved: A Great Movie’s Misleading Message

12/7/2017
More
The magnificent new Churchill movie, “Darkest Hour,” easily counts among the year’s best, but a crucial scene sends a message the real Sir Winston would have hated. In the movie, the Prime Minister wavers over starting peace talks with Hitler, and on the way to a cabinet meeting, he wanders into the Underground—London’s subway. He asks the opinions of ordinary Englishmen in his car, and—only when they tell him to keep fighting at all costs—does he convey that message to Parliament in the...

Lanhee Chen: Confirm Azar as New Secretary for Health and Human Services

12/6/2017

President Trump has nominated Alex Azar to be the next Secretary of Health and Human Services. It’s an important job, as the future of Obamacare hangs in the balance and Republicans continue to express their desire to repeal and replace the law. Azar is highly qualified for the post: He served as the number two official at the department—and its chief counsel—during the George W. Bush Administration. He was a law clerk for Justice Antonin Scalia. And he’s been a senior executive at one of...

Albert Mohler: The Truth About The American Bar Association

12/5/2017

The American Bar Association has recently tipped its hand, showing how very partisan it has become. Joe Palazzolo, writing at the Wall Street Journal, reports that “tensions between Senate Republicans and the bar association, the largest organization of lawyers in the nation, have escalated in recent weeks after the ABA pronounced a Nebraska lawyer unfit to serve on the Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.” Why? Because of his, “‘deeply-held social agenda.’’ The nominee, Mr. Steven Grasz,...
