Ethno-Entrepreneurs Responsible For Nigeria’s Divisiveness, says Professor Akpan

Professor Akpan Wilson, Deputy dean of Research and Internationalisation at the University of Fort Hare in South Africa, has said that the fault lines in Nigeria exist because it furthers the interest of ethno-political entrepreneurs who ensure non-cessation of tension and violence in the country.

Thinking Reasonably – WOTUS is Worse

Written by Dale Pflug on Tuesday, 28 October 2014. Posted in Dale Pflug, Opinion

If the Clean Water Act was bad because it is a bureaucratic and regulatory nightmare, then the EPA's latest WOTUS is a nightmare wrapped in catastrophe and surrounded by a debacle.

Thinking Reasonably – WOTUS is Worse

WOTUS? Another acronym! We live in a world of acronyms. It makes people feel isolated if they aren’t up to speed with the latest techno-speak. Examples include the USA, UN, NATO, EPA, ISIS or ISIL, the IRS, DHS, DOD, DOE, BLM just to name a few. POTUS means the President of the United States to those that are in the know. So would you understand a statement that “POTUS was told by the UN that DHS should be prepared for an ISIS threat or they would bring NATO into the USA to make us we mind our P’s and Q’s”? Well, hang on to your hat, because WOTUS is going to shock you!

Passionate About Conservatism

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 28 October 2014. Posted in Books, LifeStyle, Opinion, Alan Caruba

Conservatives often feel outnumbered because of the incessant cacophony of the liberal media. But a new book by the "Chicks on the right" reminds that conservatism is popular (as well as right).

Passionate About Conservatism

We conservatives tend to be rather low key when it comes to expressing our commitment to conservative values. We are all about the Constitution, small government, a strong military, and fiscal prudence, but these are not things that are easy to talk about in a passionate way, no matter how strongly we feel about them.

The Special Treatment Homosexuals Demand

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 28 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Homosexual activists don't want the Catholic church merely to accept them (as it does with all sinners). Instead, they want Catholicism to be equated with hate. They don't want acceptance - they want destruction.

The Special Treatment Homosexuals Demand

There is one particular thing that illustrates better than anything else the unreasonableness — and some would say gall — of homosexuality activists. It’s not demanding that bakers, shirt printers and wedding planners be party to events and expression deeply contrary to their principles, as offensive as that is. What I speak of is something even more fundamental, something again brought to light by the recent Vatican synod on the family.

What the 'Gay Marriage' Debate is Really About

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 28 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

The common law, natural law and reality itself preclude any man, any court, any government, even state governments, from presuming to redefine the institution of marriage.

What the 'Gay Marriage' Debate is Really About

It’s called Pandora’s Box.

And the Supreme Court just opened it.

Obama's War on U.S. Energy

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 28 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Wondering why the US economy still seems so fragile? Part of the answer is the Obama administration's relentless war on energy.

Obama's War on U.S. Energy

September 19th was an anniversary you did not read or hear about in the nation’s news media. It marked six years—2008—since the first permit application for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline was submitted to the federal government. Can you imagine how many jobs its construction would have created during a period of recovery from the 2008 financial crisis? President Obama is universally credited with delaying it.

Boozman Pushes for Withdrawal of Harmful Water Regulation Proposed by Administration

on Tuesday, 28 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Letter From Congress

The EPA and Corps proposal would give the administration much greater power to oversee the land use decisions of homeowners, small businesses and family farms throughout the country.

Boozman Pushes for Withdrawal of Harmful Water Regulation Proposed by Administration

By the office of Senator John Boozman

U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) joined with several of his Senate colleagues to document abuses in the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) rulemaking process and call on EPA and Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) to immediately withdraw the proposal to claim federal control over almost all state and local waters. Boozman also joined with fellow members of the Senate Agriculture Committee, to urge the withdrawal of an “Interpretive Rule” which is causing significant confusion about which farm and ranch activities will be affected by the new EPA and Corps mandates. 

The Islamic Madness Persists

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 24 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The Middle East is a boiling cauldron, with millions of refugees, aggressive terrorist organizations, and nation-states with dangerously high stakes.

The Islamic Madness Persists

The lull in the coverage of all things Islamic was broken by two terrorist attacks in Canada, a reminder that so long as the world does not unite to destroy the Islamic State, we shall all remain vulnerable. A “lone wolf” terrorist can kill you just as dead as one in a terrorist organization, particularly one encouraging these attacks.

Are all Muslims Equal? Ask Their Christian Neighbors

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 24 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Mindless propaganda in the West insists that all Muslims support violent jihad. But this is not true, and some even defend persecuted Christians.

Are all Muslims Equal? Ask Their Christian Neighbors

The neocons and Democrats, which share the same diabolical anti-biblical philosophy, want conservatives to keep mouthing slogans asserting that all Muslims are equally dangerous and that no Muslim sect is any better or worse than another. This gives the elites free reign to attack the many more-tolerant Muslim groups, such as the Alawites (of which Assad is one), the Druze, the Kurds and others (including many Shias), who defend minorities in the Middle East, including Christians.

No Ebola Panic Despite Media Hysteria

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 24 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The results of Obama’s six years in office have been a disaster in many ways, and handling of ebola has been another debacle.

No Ebola Panic Despite Media Hysteria

One man has died of Ebola in the U.S. and he came here from Liberia. Two of the nurses that tended him are in intensive care and likely to survive. A third was thought to be infected, but wasn’t. That news has been sufficient to keep most Americans calm as the media has done its best to exploit Ebola-related news.

Thinking Reasonably – Stewardship of Liberty

Written by Dale Pflug on Friday, 24 October 2014. Posted in Dale Pflug, Opinion

The maintenance of liberty can not be delegated to the government. Instead, it is the duty of an ever-vigilant people to make sure that government does not despoil citizens of their freedoms.

Thinking Reasonably – Stewardship of Liberty

Stewardship is defined as “the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving”! Liberty is: “freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control; freedom from external or foreign rule; and freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, hampering conditions, etc., power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice.” The Declaration of Independence documents our God-given right to Liberty. Therefore, it is apparent that We The People must provide the “responsible overseeing and protection”.  Government in and of itself cannot provide the stewardship to achieve and maintain liberty. The People must stand fast in the rule of law and turn from our foolish practices of experimenting with the careless whims of men.

The Larceny Is Larger than You Think!

Written by Michael Anthony Peroutka Esq. on Thursday, 23 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Michael Peroutka

It should not come as a surprise that the city of Houston is restricting freedom of speech since we've allowed government to restrict all of our other freedoms as well.

The Larceny Is Larger than You Think!

Last week the mayor of Houston enraged many Christians when the city subpoenaed the sermons of some Houston area pastors. This got me to thinking…
