That "Honest" Dialogue on Race

Written by Jack Kerwick on Monday, 22 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Kerwick, Jack

Discussions of race and racism in America are usually skewed to support one ideology or another, and therefore tend to avoid a full accounting of relevant facts and perspectives.

That

For years, Eric Holder has bellyached over the unwillingness of this “nation of cowards” to have an “honest” discussion over race. The George Zimmerman verdict is the latest occasion that Holder has exploited for renewing his call on this score.

Too Much Trayvon and George

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 22 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Nothing Obama said before and after the trial was helpful and all seemed to have little purpose than to stir up the divided passions on both sides, black and white.

Too Much Trayvon and George

I can only speak for myself, but I want to be relieved of having to change the channels in order to get away from too much talk about Trayvon Martin and too much talk about George Zimmerman.

Zimmerman Speech Obama SHOULD Have Given

Written by J. Matt Barber on Monday, 22 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

If President Obama really wants to move the nation forward, then here are the remarks he should have delivered following the acquittal of George Zimmerman.

Zimmerman Speech Obama SHOULD Have Given

My fellow Americans:

I am your humble servant. You have entrusted me with the tremendous honor and responsibility to serve you as president. I am not president of black America, Hispanic America or white America. I am not president of liberal America or conservative America. I am president of the United States of America. 

The Colosseum of Courtroom Cretins

Written by Ilana Mercer on Monday, 22 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Ilana Mercer

If the trial of George Zimmerman taught us anything at all it is that debate in mass media is monopolized by a noisy, all-powerful elite of idiots to whom reason is racism.

The Colosseum of Courtroom Cretins

American mainstream media is a Colosseum of cretins. 

Take the attorney for the Trayvon Martin family, Jasmine Rand.

Who is Supporting this Administration?

The mainstream media would have Americans believe that the Obama administration is sustained by massive popularity among voters. But Obama's popularity is little more than smoke and mirrors.

Living in a Communist Economy

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 22 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The United States under Obama is experiencing the kind of economic maladventure formerly only known to Communist nations.

Living in a Communist Economy

In the former Soviet Union, the joke was “They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work.” It took over four decades of the Cold War to finally put an end to the lie that Communism as an economic system works. After the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, the Soviet Union came to an end on December 25, 1991. By then Communism worldwide had killed hundreds of millions of people.

The Upside to $4 a Gallon Gas...

Expensive gas is a pain in the you know what. But, there are some upsides....

The Upside to $4 a Gallon Gas...

Gas prices seem to have stabilized – at last temporarily – at the New Normal of about $3.40 or so per gallon for regular unleaded.

Middle East Insanity

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 19 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

President Obama’s efforts to put some distance between the U.S. and the turmoil in the Middle East are beginning to look like a good idea.

Middle East Insanity

There’s not much I like about President Obama’s policies, but I am beginning to think that his resolve to militarily withdraw the U.S. from the Middle East is likely based on his insights into the Islamic mind.

Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman, and the Fundamental Transformation of America

Written by Jack Kerwick on Thursday, 18 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Kerwick, Jack

The long-standing American tradition of localism and limited government is now imperiled, for the persecution of Zimmerman can’t but make many an American think long and hard before involving themselves in local affairs, in helping out their fellows.

Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman, and the Fundamental Transformation of America

George Zimmerman has been acquitted and justice has been done.

Yet the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman issue tells us much about the left’s agenda to “fundamentally transform” America.

Wasting Time on Palestinian Fantasies

Written by Alan Caruba on Thursday, 18 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Why would Secretary Kerry waste his time on the question of what to do with the Palestinians when there are many other pressing diplomatic problems and challenges?

Wasting Time on Palestinian Fantasies

After the state of Israel declared its independence and sovereignty in 1948 it was attacked by its Arab “neighbors” repeatedly until they concluded that was a bad idea. The name Palestine comes from ancient Rome and, in more recent times from the former British Mandate to oversee the holy land dating back to the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. There were no Palestinian citizens then, nor are there any now because Palestine is not a state, nor ever was.

Holder and Zimmerman: Will Blackness Trump Fairness?

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 18 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

At the DOJ under Eric Holder, an inquiry into George Zimmerman is underway. But legitimate questions have been raised about the Attorney General's impartiality in this case.

Holder and Zimmerman: Will Blackness Trump Fairness?

While George Zimmerman has been acquitted, his troubles are hardly behind him. It’s not just that no small number of thugs want his head on a platter, but that the baddest of them all is the highest law-enforcement official in the land.

What should the libertarian position be on the Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case? Eric Peters has some thoughts.

In the Zone: How Scientists Search for Habitable Planets

on Thursday, 18 July 2013. Posted in Space, Sci/Tech

The hunt is on for planets about the size of Earth that orbit at just the right distance from their star – in a region termed the habitable zone.

In the Zone: How Scientists Search for Habitable Planets

There is only one planet we know of, so far, that is drenched with life. That planet is Earth, as you may have guessed, and it has all the right conditions for critters to thrive on its surface. Do other planets beyond our solar system, called exoplanets, also host life forms?

More Bad News for Trayvon

Written by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, 17 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Thanks to the Zimmerman trial and all the discussion that has followed in its wake, Americans are debating black and white racism.

More Bad News for Trayvon

I heard it on ABC radio’s Geraldo Rivera show. Commenting on the Zimmerman trial and, specifically about the lawyers representing the Martin family, a white woman said “I would never hire a black lawyer” because she felt they ignored the facts in the case following the acquittal.
