The Right to Resist

Written by Eric Peters on Friday, 19 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

Why do random strangers in special costumes get to wield life and death power over us? And why are we told we must defer to them, even if it does cost our lives?

The Right to Resist

If someone attacks you, it is unquestioned that you have a right to defend yourself. If, in the process, the attacker is injured – even killed – it’s fundamentally on him.

Sydney Hostage Tragedy and its American Cousin

Written by Jake MacAulay on Friday, 19 December 2014. Posted in Jake MacAulay, Opinion

The Sydney attack was terrible in its senseless brutality. But we shouldn't forget that senseless lawmaking has resulted in millions of innocent deaths and unconstitutional assaults on freedom.

Sydney Hostage Tragedy and its American Cousin

Just a few days ago a dangerous and deadly hostage ordeal unfolded in Sydney, Australia. According to news reports the Muslim man who perpetrated the event is a self-proclaimed minister of the Islamic state.

Anger Can Be Murder!

Written by Rev. David Whitney on Friday, 19 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, David Whitney

But anger can also be justified and righteous. And it can be the motivation for a people to set right those things that threaten freedom.

Anger Can Be Murder!

One of the most powerful emotions within our souls is anger. The sense I have is that the palpable level of anger in America is rising. “The more we learn about government, the more we learn about central bankers, the more we learn about the military industrial complex, the more we learn about social justice and the environmental movement, the more we learn about the move towards world government, the more we learn about politicians and political institutions and the corruption, waste, fraud, abuse and negligence they oversee and profit by, the angrier we get.”(1)

The Expert's Cloudy Crystal Balls

Two authors, both experts, have radically different expectations for the future of American success. Which is right, asks Alan Caruba in his latest book review.

The Expert's Cloudy Crystal Balls

In late October I wrote a commentary “Is America in Decline?” based on a book by James MacDonald, “When Globalism Fails: The Rise and Fall of Pax Americana”, due for sale in January from Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Within days I received “The Accidental Super Power: The Next Generation of American Preeminence and The Coming Global Disorder” by Peter Zeihan. 

Is Belief in God Required to Hold Office in America?

Written by Jake MacAulay on Thursday, 18 December 2014. Posted in Jake MacAulay, Opinion

The constitutional requirement that an office holder must believe in God is a logical and consistent protection against those who might drive our constitutional republic in a bad direction.

Is Belief in God Required to Hold Office in America?

There are seven states including Maryland with language in their constitutions that prohibits people who do not believe in God from holding public office.

The New Congress Must Save the USA from the EPA

Written by Alan Caruba on Thursday, 18 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

If the Republican controlled Congress does not launch legislative action to control the EPA the consequences for Americans will continue to mount.

The New Congress Must Save the USA from the EPA

When the Republican Party takes over majority control of Congress in January, it will face a number of battles that must be fought with the Obama administration ranging from its amnesty intentions to the repeal of ObamaCare, but high among the battles is the need to rein in the metastasizing power of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Worst New Car “Safety” Features

Written by Eric Peters on Thursday, 18 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

In the bad-old pre-computer days, you might have had to kick your car to get it to do something you wanted. These days, the car kicks you (in the name of safety, of course).

Worst New Car “Safety” Features

Some of you might remember the ’90s sci-fi flick, Demolition Man. It starred Sylvester Stallone and portrayed a future world obsessed with “safety.” That’s our reality, today.

Natural Law Versus Positive Law

Written by Jack Kerwick on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Kerwick, Jack

Natural law theorists who seek to make an example of the Eric Garner case, risk using arguments that, in reality, undermine the concepts of Natural Law.

Natural Law Versus Positive Law

Eric Garner, many libertarians seem to think, was innocent as far as the natural law is concerned.

Muslim go BOOM!

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

Isn't it interesting that arrayed against the life-affirming faiths of Christianity and Judaism, one finds the life-denying forces of both Islam and liberal-progressivism?

Muslim go BOOM!

“When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them.” 

– The Quran, Surah 9:5

Chanukah Celebrates Rededication

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

As the first Chanukah candle is lighted this year, we are days from celebrating Christmas. This is a good time to remember to resist those for whom religion is a reason to hate others as well as those who reject spiritual faith.

Chanukah Celebrates Rededication

Sometimes I think that Jews are going to have to arm themselves in order to celebrate Chanukah. These days, merely praying in a synagogue, whether it is in Jerusalem or Brooklyn has become hazardous.

When Liberal Preferences Meet Islamic Principles

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Multiculturalism is the cancer afflicting Western civilization, and which threatens its ultimate destruction.

When Liberal Preferences Meet Islamic Principles

There was a recent scandal that, as much as anything else, illustrates the intellectual emptiness and moral ennui of the modern liberal man. It occurred in Britain but reflects a wider phenomenon; what can be said about it can be said about happenings in Sweden, France, Holland, Canada or Belgium — or the United States.

Let's Get Government Out of the Charity Business

Written by Star Parker on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Star Parker

Why focus on trying to make government more efficient rather than on what government should or should not do?

Let's Get Government Out of the Charity Business

The story is told that when Tennessee frontiersman Davy Crockett served in the US Congress (between 1827 and 1835) he voted for a bill appropriating $20,000 for relief for victims of a fire that broke out in Georgetown.

We're Number Two

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

For "Main Street" America, the economy has not recovered, and now China has officially surpassed America as the number one economy. Both facts are outcomes of the strangulation of federal regulations and socialism.

We're Number Two

The U.S. was the world's number one economy prior to World War II, but it took off bigtime after the war and there has not been a day of my long life in which we were not number one—until now.

How Uncle Killed Pontiac

Written by Eric Peters on Tuesday, 16 December 2014. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

Arguably, Pontiac was the greatest of GM divisions, and its demise the saddest. Unknown to most, it didn't die a natural death, but was strangled by Fed regulation.

How Uncle Killed Pontiac

The French philosopher-economist Frederic Bastiat wrote about the unseen repercussions of government interfering with the market’s natural progressions. In other words, what might have been. Perhaps the saddest four words in the language.
