    NRO ^ | 8/12/14 | Robert Barron
    I was chagrined, but not entirely surprised, when I read Woody Allen’s recent ruminations on ultimate things. To state it bluntly, Woody could not be any bleaker in regard to the issue of meaning in the universe. We live, he said, in a godless and purposeless world. The earth came into existence through mere chance and one day it, along with every work of art and cultural accomplishment, will be incinerated. The universe as a whole will expand and cool until there is nothing left but the void. Every hundred years or so, he continued, a coterie of human beings...

    Former U.S. Congressman and Lt. Col. Allen West expressed his opposition to a potential move by Pres. Obama to use military enlistment as a vehicle to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. In a post on his website on Thursday, Lt. Col. West said, "the purpose of serving our nation should not be about earning citizenship. It should be about being a guardian of the Republic." Lt. Col. West added that he'll speak out against any Member of Congress who supports a policy to grant a military amnesty.

    Some time ago, a lesbian living in Canada viewed a few of my YouTube videos on the subject of homosexuality, and a lengthy debate ensued. We went back and forth discussing all of the oft-repeated and ridiculous homosexual talking points. Our conversations also included an examination of the New Testament’s teachings about homosexuality. I shared the traditional and obvious scriptural prohibitions against all types of same-sex behavior. My lesbian debate opponent, on the other hand, provided the typical contortionist interpretations of biblical sexuality. And no matter how comprehensive or meticulous my explanations, she was completely convinced (deceived) that the New...

    Mia Farrow and Ronan Farrow didn't hold back their disdain for Woody Allen on Twitter Sunday evening. The mother and son tweeted out against the tribute to the director at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. "Time to grab some ice cream & switch over to #GIRLS," Mia tweeted when Allen's tribute began to start. Diane Keaton accepted the Cecil. B. DeMille Award on behalf of the Hollywood heavyweight—extolling the director's work with actresses, dropping a few curse words and even singing during her monologue. But Ronan's tweet made it clear that he wouldn't be offering any tributes at his house....

Some conservatives and tea parties have called for West to challenge Rubio after the senator’s support of immigration reform. West continues to show no interest in taking Rubio on.

Kelley filed suit against the federal government in early June alleging her privacy had been violated by employees of government agencies. Last week a federal judge granted a request to give the government 30 additional days before responding to Kelley's complaint. The government cited the length of Kelley's suit and the need to confer with multiple government agencies. Kelley's defense...

    BANGKOK — Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta has ordered the Pentagon to find out why so many generals and admirals have become embroiled in legal and ethical problems, a trend exacerbated by recent investigations of two of the military’s best-known commanders. The Pentagon disclosed Panetta’s directive on Thursday after he arrived in Thailand as part of a visit to Asia. But aides insisted that he had been considering the review for some time and that it was not prompted by revelations that the FBI has been investigating former CIA director David H. Petraeus, a retired Army general, and Marine Gen....

    WASHINGTON — The coalition can still “win” in Afghanistan, but the U.S. must maintain a strong presence and commitment after 2014 to maintain stability in the region, Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford told Senators on Tuesday. “From my perspective, winning is achievable,” Dunford, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, told the Senate Armed Services Committee. Dunford, the commander of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan, defined winning as completing the transition to an Afghan lead on security, supporting a democratic political process and denying al-Qaida sanctuary. “If we do those three things … I believe by the end of 2014,...

    Florida Rep. Allen West — the tea party pugilist and face of the class of House Republicans that stormed to power two years ago — conceded Tuesday to 29-year-old construction executive Patrick Murphy in one of the nation’s highest-profile congressional races. After two weeks of battle with St. Lucie County elections officials — and a recount of early votes that wound up extending Murphy’s lead — West acknowledged that he couldn’t surmount his 1,904-vote, or 0.58 percent, deficit. That difference was just outside the 0.5 percent threshold to automatically trigger a recount of all votes.

In the episode, airing four days before the election, Allen’s uber-conservative character, Mike Baxter, tries to persuade his impressionable 18-year-old daughter to vote for Mitt Romney.

    Yesterday, Democrat Tim Kaine asked his Republican opponent to join him in taking a “balanced” approach to avoiding the looming sequestration cuts. Unfortunately Tim Kaine seems to suffer amnesia on his attempt to implement the same kind of “balanced” approach while he served as Virginia’s Governor. Such an approach included billions of dollars in new and higher taxes. Kaine called on George Allen to “set aside his Pledge,” and work for a “responsible path forward.” Translated, what Tim Kaine means is that he’s asking Allen to break his written commitment to Virginia taxpayers and join with him in an approach...

Two older veterans called her out on it and she proceeded to tell one of them “f— you!”, at which point the veterans’ wife stepped in to defend her husband. The liberal groupee then slightly shoved the wife who promptly shoved right back and threatened to wrap her cane around the liberal groupee’s neck. Awesome! This is just more evidence of the profound effect Allen West is having on the left in Florida. Their heads are about to explode! Watch below:

    Allen West’s comments that there are nearly 80 Communists in the House just won’t go away. And CNN is making sure of that. CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien, for example, had a testy exchange with West on Thursday morning, confronting him on the remarks and demanding he “name names.” From the beginning, O’Brien was combative, vehemently disagreeing with Allen West regarding Ted Nugent’s controversial recent comments. Then they turned to West’s own remarks. After playing the clip, O’Brien asked him about it, and West said that Communists have “renamed themselves progressive” but the ideology has stayed the same.

The probable Soros-backed group Stand Up Florida is now specifically campaigning against Congressman West in the 18th congressional district that he is running for re-election in. Here’s the link to Stand Up Florida’s website which makes no attempt to hide their contempt for West. Stand Up Florida’s advertisement is now on Craig’s List (screen capture below) that calls on folks in N.Palm Beach, Martin, and St.Lucie counties-the...

    Yes, it’s true that Representative Allen West (R-FL) hit a Porsche this morning, but it was to bring attention to a bill that he is co-sponsoring in Congress called the Safe Teen and Novice Uniform Protection (STANDUP) Act – H.R. 1515. West spoke to students, educators, and law enforcement officials at Jupiter High School emphasizing his support for the bill after he took the simulated driving test that shows what can happen when you text and drive. "If you're gonna hit something, hit a Porsche," West said as his test came to an end.
