Despite Big Challenges, Conservatives Will Continue to Fight

The recent upset victory by Republican candidate David Jolly for the open seat in Florida’s 13th congressional district, a district carried by Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, has produced a rush of excitement in Republican circles.

Mighty Warrior

Worship precedes the victory. We need to remember that praise gives us the proper perspective. As we praise and worship God, it puts other things into their rightful place in our thinking.

Mighty Warrior

Louis Albert Banks tells of an elderly Christian man, a fine singer, who learned that he had cancer of the tongue and that surgery was required. In the hospital after everything was ready for the operation, the man said to the doctor, "Are you sure I will never sing again"? The surgeon found it difficult to answer his question. He simply shook his head no.

A recent article in The Wall Street Journal took note of what has occurred since the 1990s when some three dozen gray wolves were captured in Canada and transferred to the wilderness of Idaho. According to federal biologists, this was necessary to restore the ecological balance in a region teeming with elk and other creatures on the gray wolf food chain.

J. Matt Barber: "Guys, I’m here to tell you, the 'social issues' aren’t going away. But keep up this fatalistic nonsense and the GOP’s Christian-conservative base just might."

Is the GOP Suicidal?

Leave it to the Republican Party to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

on Tuesday, 25 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Letter From Congress

Sen. Barrasso: "The United States has an opportunity to become a major player in the international gas market—it just needs a willing partner in the White House. The Obama Administration should waste no time in acting on other pending LNG applications."

Why Government Does Not Function

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 24 March 2014. Posted in Books, LifeStyle, Opinion, Alan Caruba

America is choking on a miasma of regulation and law. The scale of the problem is presented in “The Rule of Nobody,” the new book by Philip K. Howard.

Why Government Does Not Function

Do you have the feeling that we no longer have government from the federal to the local level that is able to function because of vast volumes of laws and regulations that have made it impossible to do anything from build a bridge to run a nursing home? If so, you’re right. The nation is falling behind others who do a better job by permitting elected and appointed officials to actually make decisions. We are living in a nation where lawsuits follow every decision to accomplish anything.

Raunch: Huffington Post Says Friends Should Have Casual, Meaningless Sex

Written by J. Matt Barber on Sunday, 23 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

Have you noticed that progressives love everything that runs counter to moral and ethical behavior? No? Here's an example.

Raunch: Huffington Post Says Friends Should Have Casual, Meaningless Sex

I don’t know whether to laugh, throw up or both. A reader tipped me to this Huffington Post article by D.A. Wolf headlined: “5 Benefits Of Having a Friend With Benefits.” In case you’re not hip to liberal-speak, “friends with benefits” refers to the “progressive” idea that it’s really cool for friends to use each other for casual, meaningless sex.

Where’s America's Right To Referendum, Secession?

Written by Ilana Mercer on Sunday, 23 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Ilana Mercer

If we Americans are the freest people in the world, where’s our right to a referendum on, say, that “little” legislative “blip” called Obamacare? And if we’re so bleeding free, where’s our right to secede from D.C.?

Where’s America's Right To Referendum, Secession?

From a node in the neoconservative network, a Fox News studio, Charles Krauthammer has complained about the eviction of the Ukrainian Navy from the city of Sevastopol, where it was headquartered. Not a word did the commentator say about the city’s location: Sevastopol is on the Crimean Peninsula. It would appear that the city now falls within Crimean jurisdiction—starting on March 16, the day the people of Crimea voted to secede from Ukraine.

Should New GM Be Liable for The Misdeeds of Old GM?

Written by Eric Peters on Sunday, 23 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

Without moral hazard, there is no free market – only the freedom to profit at the expense of others – and get away with it.

Should New GM Be Liable for The Misdeeds of Old GM?

The unfolding fiasco over GM’s apparent shoving-under-the-rug of a potentially life-ending defect with the ignition switches in millions of its vehicles brings up the interesting issue of moral hazard and how it applies to corporations.

Criminals Don’t Ask for Permission

Written by Bradlee Dean on Sunday, 23 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Bradlee Dean

America has reached a tipping point that represents both an opportunity and a challenge. The republic can yet be saved, but if current trends continue, it may be lost forever.

Criminals Don’t Ask for Permission

Over the past 14 years, in the course of doing more than 350 public high-school presentations across the country in 24 states, my ministry team and I have (without fail) fought on the behalf of a generation that is being subjected to everything and protected from nothing.

Solar and Wind Power Losing Worldwide Support

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 21 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

U.S. Energy Information Administration reports that the United States is producing less electricity now than it did when Obama took office even with the inclusion of wind energy.

Solar and Wind Power Losing Worldwide Support

In his state of the union speech in January President Obama claimed that the U.S. was closer to “energy independence” than ever. He was referring to solar energy while ignoring that his administration has been the most anti-fossil fuel energy than any previous one.

Irving Kristol and the Truth About Neoconservatism

Written by Jack Kerwick on Thursday, 20 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Kerwick, Jack

Irving Kristol admits what other neocons prefer to keep secret: the neocon movement has the welfare state and big government at its heart.

Irving Kristol and the Truth About Neoconservatism

In spite of the ease with which the word “conservatism” is thrown about these days, most people who associate with the “conservative” movement are not really conservative at all. In reality, the so-called “conservative” movement is a predominantly (though not exclusively) neoconservative movement.

The Destitute Woman

Written by Michael Anthony Peroutka Esq. on Thursday, 20 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Michael Peroutka

When government violates God’s law, what Jefferson and our Founders called “THE LAW OF NATURE AND OF NATURE’s GOD,” or when it violates the limits placed on it by the constitution, it is acting criminally.

The Destitute Woman

Imagine you and I are strolling down the street one fine day on our way to have a nice lunch and we come across a woman who is truly destitute. She needs many things including food to feed her baby. Imagine also that you just cashed a check and you know, and I know, that you have $200.00 in your pocket.

Discipling A Nation

Written by Rev. David Whitney on Thursday, 20 March 2014. Posted in David Whitney, Opinion

We need to train up the people, families, churches and civil government to obey God’s Law in everything, lest we face further decline and danger.

Discipling A Nation

Have you ever been frightened for your safety. Perhaps you parked your car in the city during daylight hours, only to return after dark. You walk down the street that seemed fine in the daylight, but at night there is a whole different sense. You look nervously over your shoulder concerned that this doesn’t seem a safe part of the city. You have a realistic appraisal of the situation without any obvious direct threat to your well being that having been made, but can you think of a situation where there was a clear and present danger – a direct and obvious threat to your safety and well being?

The Path to War

Written by Alan Caruba on Thursday, 20 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

We are embarking on a rapid return tragectory to the Cold War. Whether it turns hot depends on many factors, not the least of which is how America handles its foreign policy.

The Path to War

Having lived through the long Cold War with the former Soviet Union, including the Cuban Missile crisis, my thoughts over those years were that their leaders would not risk war because the outcome would be disastrous for Russia. When it collapsed in 1991, its Eastern Europe satellite states broke free to establish their independence.
