    When Jen Hatmaker speaks to stadiums full of Christian women, she regales them with stories about her five children and her garden back in Austin, Tex. — and stays away from politics. But recently she took to Facebook and Instagram to blast Donald J. Trump as a “national disgrace,” and remind her legions of followers that there are other names on the ballot in November. “Trump has consistently normalized violence, sexual deviance, bigotry and hate speech,” she said in an email interview. “I wouldn’t accept this from my seventh-grade son, much less from a potential leader of the free world.”...

    Although the U.S. Justice Department didn't end up pursuing criminal charges against Hillary Clinton, she's still having to answer questions about her private email server. And it's not just on the campaign trail — it's in court. Clinton's attorneys submitted on her behalf answers to 23 of the 25 questions posed to her by Judicial Watch as part of its Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against Clinton. Judicial Watch is a "conservative, non-partisan" watchdog organization. She signed and submitted her answers under penalty of perjury on Monday. And Thursday, Judicial Watch released Clinton's responses. Many of the responses included the...

    The Christian Post has allowed a Democrat operative to shill for Hillary Clinton, who rivals Barack Obama as the most pro-abortion presidential candidate in history. I’m trying to imagine if the issue were slavery, would the Christian Post give its space to the promotion of someone so determined to violently dehumanize God’s creation? If it’s remotely Christian to support a billion-dollar business that daily destroys nearly 1,000 defenseless human lives, then Christians can support anything.Eric Sapp authors a ridiculously dishonest piece entitled “Hillary Clinton is the Best Choice for Voters Against Abortion”.

    Ben Rhodes is perhaps the weirdest foreign policy adviser in the history of the White House. His path to his current position as deputy national security adviser for strategic communications was, as this New York Times profile informs us, "perhaps not strictly believable, even as fiction." Forget his title. Ben Rhodes is "the single most influential voice shaping American foreign policy aside from Potus himself," according to the Times. What makes that so bizarre is that Rhodes has no background in foreign policy at all. He was a failed short story writer who wandered into the orbit of Obama aides...

    Trump’s supporters loved his promise last week to create a “deportation force” to remove all 11 million illegal immigrants living in America, and his repeated declaration that everyone here illegally will “have to go.” But his supporters tend to overlook his other promise—repeated in the Fox Business debate in Milwaukee on November 10—that under his immigration plan “they will come back.” That’s right. Under Trump’s immigration plan, almost all of the 11 million illegal aliens (save for a small minority with criminal records) will get to return and get permanent legal status to stay here in America. Trump supports amnesty.

    Obama did not grow up in a religious household and became a practicing Christian as an adult. He has written more extensively about his spiritual awakening than almost any other modern president, addressing it in two books before he was elected to the White House and in more than a dozen speeches since. His faith had been central to his identity as a new kind of Democrat who would bring civility to the country's political debates by appealing to Republicans through the shared language of their Judeo-Christian values. With just one year left in his second term, Obama now holds...

'What is true is that from the start our goal has been first to contain them and we have contained them.' Contained, said Rhodes, was simply meant in terms of geography.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton and her family personally paid a State Department staffer to maintain the private e-mail server she used while heading the agency, according to an official from Clinton’s presidential campaign. The unusual arrangement helped Clinton retain personal control over the system that she used for her public and private duties and that has emerged as an issue for her campaign. But, according to the campaign official, it also ensured that taxpayer dollars were not spent on a private server that was shared by Clinton, her husband and their daughter as well as aides to the former president.

    President Obama doesn't need to step foot in a church to find spiritual inspiration -- it comes directly to his BlackBerry. Every day, the president receives "devotionals," or passages meant to bring one closer to God, from Joshua DuBois, the head of his Office of Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. "Whether it's a passage of scripture or a piece out of a book that I think he might be interested in or a prayer, it's something to start his day off on the right note," DuBois told Fox News. When he took office, Obama fought vehemently with his security staff...

    It was only five years ago when Barack Obama fought mightily to keep his BlackBerry — becoming the first president to be connected by email. Now, he may be looking for an upgrade. The White House is in the early stages of testing smartphones, the Wall Street Journal reported on yesterday, with devices from Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics being examined by the White House Communications Agency. If the president leaves his BlackBerry behind for a new smartphone, it’s another sign of the times from when George W. Bush famously sent a farewell message from his AOL address when he...

    Obama was reported not to be operational without his blackberry communication device. He even had a "special", extra secure device configured just for his use. Is it not a requirement that all communications orginating from the President of the United States have some kind of transcript so as to be able to reconstruct events in case of a disaster, or a gross mistake made by our elected officials? How can any kind of transcription made from a blackberry conversation? Is it recorded? Who is Obama talking to in secret on his blackberry? Inquiring minds just asking questions....

    I’m guessing the answer is no—Steve Jobs and geniuses at Apple will release the iPhone 5 (or the iPad 3) whenever they are damn well ready. Until then, I guess we will all be left drooling and craving. Now back to Barack. The President of the United State loves his technology and for many years fanned out over his trusty BlackBerry. But things have changed—Obama now is ready to join the cult of Apple. That’s right—Barack Obama wants an iPhone. I don’t blame him. I was a BlackBerry devotee for years.Then the iPhone came out. I was jealous, but patient—I...

    There's a new "holy grail" for hackers — President Obama's super-secure BlackBerry. Despite warnings from his advisers, the president insisted on keeping his beloved PDA, which now has specially designed superencrypting security software. But that just makes cracking into it more challenging — and, yes, it can be done, says the world's most famous hacker. "It's a long shot, but it's possible," Kevin Mitnick told "You'd probably need to be pretty sophisticated, but there's people out there who are."

    WASHINGTON - Before he ran for president Barack Obama quit smoking. Now that he's won the job, he may have to break another addiction: Checking his BlackBerry for e-mail. The president's e-mail can be subpoenaed by Congress and courts and may be subject to public records laws, so if a president doesn't want his e-mail public, he shouldn't e-mail, experts said. And there may be security issues about carrying around trackable cell phones

    It's become a cause for some: to let Barack Obama keep his BlackBerry when he takes office. What stands in the way? The primary concern has been the Presidential Records Act, which requires all presidential documents to be put in the official record. Now, realistically, no matter what people say, it's not so much about national security as it is as making sure that if a "Watergate" happens, We The People have plenty of evidence to back it up. Ans as that's the issue, what's the problem. We can track his cell phone calls. We can track his emails. So...

    Washington (CNN) - Congress isn't getting a glimpse of what's on President Barack Obama's Blackberry - or any more internal White House communications related to the bankrupt solar company Solyndra, which received a $535 million loan guarantee from the federal government. House Republicans investigating the loan controversy had requested all internal White House documents about the issue. House Energy and Commerce subcommittee chair Rep. Cliff Stearns said that includes emails on the President's Blackberry. On Friday the White House Counsel sent a letter to the House Energy and Commerce Committee explaining they won't comply with the request because it "implicates...
