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.

RINO Socialists Hate Tea Party Conservatives and Libertarians

Written by Jack Kerwick on Wednesday, 19 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Kerwick, Jack

It is establishment Republicans who fuel the perception that they’re zealous purists, “extremists” and “one issue voters,” when they wax hysterical over just talk of reducing by a single red cent our tremendous defense budget.

RINO Socialists Hate Tea Party Conservatives and Libertarians

When, on March 13, a caller to Bill Bennett’s radio show charged the host with being unduly supportive of “establishment Republicans” over Tea Partiers, Bennett admitted that while he’s an admirer of the Tea Party, he would not endorse those of its candidates who, even if they won, would hurt the party.

The Lord is a Man of War and Failed American Manhood

Written by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas on Wednesday, 19 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

The Church in America, if not elsewhere as well, has sought to eliminate masculinity from the pews.

The Lord is a Man of War and Failed American Manhood

“The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name (Exodus 15:3).” 

To the modern day milquetoast, feminized, peace-at-all-cost boys in America this is a rather strange depiction of the Lord. The reason is less complicated than one might imagine. For several decades, the church in America has been content to abandon the warrior, masculine aspects of the God of the Bible and replace Him instead with an adaptation that suits America’s “nicer than Jesus” mentality. Many pulpits throughout America have consistently preached a feminized version of the Gospel. It is no small wonder why people would cringe at this aggressive portrayal of God Almighty in Scripture.

Can America Survive Obama?

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 18 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Obama has continued to lie to the point where anyone above the age of five has concluded that nothing he says can be trusted.

Can America Survive Obama?

After a series of events that continue the decline of America’s global reputation along with increasing questions about the level of Obama administration corruption within the Internal Revenue Service, these and other factors lead inevitably to the question of whether America can survive Barack Hussein Obama.

Rand Paul Just Outed Himself

Written by Eric Peters on Tuesday, 18 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

On foreign policy matters, specifically Russia and Crimea, Rand Paul has just revealed that he's no libertarian.

Rand Paul Just Outed Himself

Rand Paul is one of them.

Maybe they got to him. Maybe they have the negatives. Or maybe he was just never one of us, no matter how much some of us may have hoped he might be. It doesn’t matter why. What does matter is that Rand Paul has added his voice to the lunatic neocon warble that could very well lead the world to a nuclear war over... 

America Spirals Down the Socialist Sinkhole

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 18 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

What we have been witnessing over the last century and this one is the assertion of more and more federal control by our own government.

America Spirals Down the Socialist Sinkhole

America for its first century and a quarter was home to a capitalist system and philosophy that took it from a largely agricultural economy to one that saw the rise of its vast industrial base. In 1913 that changed with the creation of the Federal Reserve, a banking cartel, and the introduction of income taxes. It was a time that gave rise to socialist ideas focused on a central government that controls all aspects of the economy and the lives of citizens.

Hose Heroes?

Written by Eric Peters on Tuesday, 18 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

There is no legitimate reason for community fire services to exist on other than a voluntary/free-exchange basis. But, that's not how it is in America.

Hose Heroes?

Cops (enforcers of the law) are far from “heroic” . . .  but what about firemen?
