The Climate Charlatans Gather in Warsaw

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 12 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

In Warsaw, Poland, for two weeks starting on November 11, the usual group of climate change charlatans have gathered for the 19th Conference of the Parties (COP-19) to try to breathe life into this greatest of all hoaxes.

The Climate Charlatans Gather in Warsaw

Back in 1997, the United Nations held a convention in Kyoto, Japan, that put together the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. It was a treaty that required the nations that agreed to it to reduce “greenhouse gas” emissions, principally carbon dioxide (CO2) in order to save Earth from the perils of “global warming.” There were 192 parties to the convention and, although the U.S. “signed” the treaty, the U.S. Senate unanimously defeated participation. By 2011, our neighbor, Canada, withdrew from it.

Why Not?

The government is making you buy things you may not want to buy, and is making them more expensive, too. Cars are a case in point. Where's the outrage?

Why Not?

In this economy, can anyone seriously doubt that there is a market for simple, reliable – and inexpensive – transportation?

Senator Johnson: “When I heard it, the analogy I was thinking of was, you tell somebody, 'Boy, I'm really sorry your dog died,' but you refuse to acknowledge you ran over that dog with your car."

What Ken Cuccinelli’s & E.W. Jackson’s Losses in Virginia Mean

Written by Robert Broadus on Monday, 11 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Robert Broadus

Cuccinelli's and Jackson's losses in Virginia - are they a sign that America has turned its back for good on truth, justice, and limited government?

What Ken Cuccinelli’s & E.W. Jackson’s Losses in Virginia Mean

As I write this, it is the night before the November 5th elections, 2013, where the people of Virginia have the opportunity to elect their current Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, as their Governor over Democrat fundraiser Terri McAuliffe. They also have the chance to elect E.W. Jackson, (a Black, Christian minister, lawyer, and retired Marine) as their Lieutenant Governor over Ralph Northam.

Pragmatism vs. Principle

Written by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas on Monday, 11 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

Constantly the refrain: be more pragmatic to get ahead. But this relativist strategy ignores right and wrong. For real happiness, fidelity to truth is required.

Pragmatism vs. Principle

“Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers.” (Exodus 18:21a).

Grounds for Impeachment

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 11 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

It is unlikely that President Obama can be impeached given the current make up of Congress. Nonetheless, he should be impeached.

Grounds for Impeachment

I am beginning to think that, short of Obama being videotaped murdering a Fox News reporter on the east lawn of the White House, he will not be impeached.

The Disappearance of Heroes – Perception or Reality?

Written by Luke Hamilton on Monday, 11 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Luke Hamilton

Much as the figure of the father is under assault in the social arena, the hero is a target in the realm of entertainment.

The Disappearance of Heroes – Perception or Reality?

Our stories are changing. Wonder and Beauty slowly eke from our world, unnoticed and unmourned. I used to think it was a natural cessation from the Neverland of youth; a necessary immigration from the immature trappings of youthful imagination to the logical constraints of a moribund maturity. However I’ve found that this is not just my perspective, draining of imagination and wonder as I age. Our stories, our heroes are changing. Our children seem less prone to idealism, more immune to wonder; and this points to a tidal shift in the culture itself.

Beware Of Liberals In Libertarian Drag

We have RINOS and maybe now also LINOS - Libertarians In Name Only. Did one of them cost a libertarian-leaning Republican the election in Virginia?

Beware Of Liberals In Libertarian Drag

As analysts of the exit polls in the Virginia gubernatorial race have it, Robert Sarvis, the libertarian lite, third-party candidate is not to blame for "siphoning off" votes from conservative Ken Cuccinelli and spoiling an election in what was once a reliably red state.

Amidst the doom and gloom, those of us who call God our Father know that somehow in the scheme of things, He is working behind the scenes and has everything under control.

“What You Know Just Ain’t So”

Written by Michael Anthony Peroutka Esq. on Monday, 11 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Michael Peroutka

The same is true for a culture and its government. No matter how much we might believe something to be true, if we take action based on things that turn out NOT to be true, the results are usually very bad.

“What You Know Just Ain’t So”

A man known as Josh Billings, one of the leading American humorists during the second half of the nineteenth century, once said this:

The Last Word on the Cuccinelli Race

Written by Selwyn Duke on Monday, 11 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

It's counterintuitive, but the way the Dems worked to split the vote in Virginia for McAuliffe actually suggests that the conservative candidates have the stronger position in upcoming elections.

The Last Word on the Cuccinelli Race

There has been much analysis of the Virginia governor’s race in which Clinton crony Terry McAuliffe edged out Republican Ken Cuccinelli by two points. Liberals have portrayed the outcome as heralding the death of the Tea Party, while conservatives have, among other things, blamed the GOP establishment for failing to provide the financial backing that could have put Cuccinelli over the top. But the truth?

Obama's Iranian Deal is a New Disaster

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 11 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Is the rush to strike a deal with Iran a good idea for America, or is it an Obama administration effort to divert attention from Obamacare while undermining US standing with allies in the Middle East?

Obama's Iranian Deal is a New Disaster

The headline of the lead, page one article in The Wall Street Journal on Friday, November 8 was “U.S., Iran Close In on Nuclear Deal” with a sub-headline “West Set to Ease Some Financial Sanctions in Exchange for Tehran Freezing Most Advance Work.’ Secretary of State John Kerry cut short a visit to Middle East states, including Israel, returning to Geneva where the deal was reportedly close to being signed.

Test Drive: 2014 Kia Cadenza

Kia - and corporate parent Hyundai - have been on a roll. That looks to continue with the Kia Cadenza for 2014.

Test Drive: 2014 Kia Cadenza

The Kia Cadenza and Hyundai Azera are fraternal rather than identical twins. They both spring from the same corporate loins (Kia is a subsidiary of Korean mega-conglomerate Hyundai) and both share a lot of “DNA” – including identical powertrains.

Picking Through the Political Detritus

The latest Rasmussen poll reveals that Congress is held in low esteem by 75% of the voters. The problem with that are the voters who put its members into office in the first place.

Picking Through the Political Detritus

The outcomes of elections allows us to pick through the detritus in an effort to “make sense” of the choices voters made.
