Governor Mike Pence Fights For Marriage
Indiana Governor Mike Pence delivered his State of the State address Tuesday and did not hesitate to stand up for normal marriage.
Indiana has been an unlikely battleground in the culture war. While more than 30 states across the country overwhelmingly approved constitutional amendments protecting marriage as the union of one man and one woman, liberal politicians who previously controlled Indiana's state legislature routinely refused to let Hoosiers vote on the issue.

Nuke Deal Is Obamacare Of Foreign Policy
Like Obamacare, President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran gets worse the more we find out what is in it. The goal was to put in place tough conditions to stop Iran from developing its nuclear weapons program. Is that what it does? Not according to the Iranians.

Justices Challenge Obama's Abuse Of Power
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments today in a case challenging one of Barack Obama's abuses of power. Like you, I am frustrated that Obama is getting away with what appears to be extra-constitutional actions. Rarely a day goes by when I am not asked, "Why isn't something being done?"

Christie In The Crosshairs
Finally! The media have woken up and are focusing on scandals. What took them so long?
If you think I'm referring to the IRS scandal, sorry. That's not it. Is Benghazi on the front page of the New York Times? No. In fact, as we have reported, the New York Times has devoted its resources to aiding the Benghazi cover-up. Fast and Furious? Nope. Are the extra-constitutional actions by the president getting attention? Not that either.

A book by former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has Washington buzzing today. In Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, Gates blasts the Obama White House as excessively controlling and obsessed with politics.

High Court Delays Same-Sex Marriages In Utah
The Supreme Court this morning surprised some observers when it ordered a halt to same-sex "marriages" being performed in Utah.
The week before Christmas, federal Judge Robert Shelby sadly struck down Utah's state marriage amendment, which protected normal marriage. The amendment was supported by 66% of the state's voters in 2004. Utah officials are appealing Shelby's attack on normal marriage, and have sought to block its enforcement while their appeal proceeds.

Dialogue With Terrorists?
On Christmas Day the Egyptian government issued a decree declaring the Muslim Brotherhood to be a terrorist organization. The Obama Administration, which had thrown its support behind the former government of Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi, protested the designation.
"We think it is essential for Egypt to have an inclusive political process," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. "There needs to be dialogue and political participation across the political spectrum."
