To an extent that would have been unthinkable in past elections, one of the leading candidates for the Republican presidential nomination has stocked his inner circle with advisers who are vocal proponents of gay rights.
The world is watching idly as an Islamic army sweeps across the Middle East and engages in a genocide that rivals the Turkish Ottoman Empire genocide against Armenian Christians in the early part of the 20th century. More than 1.5 million Armenians were slaughtered in the first holocaust of the 20th century.
Twenty-four U.S. Senators and House Representatives continue to fight against this kind of insanity and have written a letter to current Secretary of the Army, John McHugh, regarding a chaplain who was disciplined for simply giving spiritual guidance as part of a suicide prevention briefing to Army Rangers while stationed at Fort Benning, GA.

“The only way to deal with ISIS is to fight and kill them,” Gohmert said. “That is the only thing that has worked against radical Islam.” Gohmert said the U.S. should stop short of putting boots on the ground but that Congress should provide military support, including training personnel and providing equipment and air support to Egypt, Jordan and other predominantly Muslim countries fighting radical terrorist groups.

This is a major victory for the rule of law; the District Court’s ruling states that President Obama must now stop implementing these policies in ‘any and all aspects.’ Last summer we saw a humanitarian crisis on our southern border that was a direct consequence of Obama’s previous amnesty. Republicans are now standing together to try to ensure that it never happens again.
ACU’s new chairman Matt Schlapp, new executive director Dan Schneider and other staff sat down with Breitbart News for a lengthy interview at the ACU’s headquarters in downtown Washington, D.C., last week—an interview in which they walked through the themes of this year’s conference. A large focus will be discussing how to apply Ronald Reagan’s three legged stool of conservatism–social conservatism, national security conservatism, and fiscal conservatism–to the problems ahead.
Heroic leadership is hard, but for George Washington it was his legacy. For Washington, leadership was not about himself.
