Seatbelt Laws and Gun Control

Written by Eric Peters on Saturday, 01 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

Incrementally, the nanny state is taking personal liberty away from Americans. The first salvo was seatbelt laws. Now it is gun control and Connecticut is ground zero.

Seatbelt Laws and Gun Control

First, an acknowledgement. A reader suggested this – I’m merely taking the ball down the field….

Razing Arizona: Conservatives Succeed at Failing Again

Written by Selwyn Duke on Friday, 28 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

The progressives have stepped up their totalitarian campaign against freedom of association as evidenced by the veto of SB 1062 by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.

Razing Arizona: Conservatives Succeed at Failing Again

Perhaps Arizona governor Jan Brewer was sincere when saying that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (SB 1062) she vetoed yesterday could “create more problems than it purports to solve.” After all, observers such as Napp Nazworth at The Christian Post contend that SB 1062 might actually — contrary to all the hysteria — have made it harder for most business owners to refuse service to homosexuals. This analysis may have merit and can be read here, but it’s irrelevant to a larger point:

The Russkies Are Coming! The Russkies Are Coming!

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 28 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Decades of Cold War have made many Americans reflexively fearful of Russia. They still think Russia intends to destroy America even today. But where's the evidence of this?

The Russkies Are Coming! The Russkies Are Coming!

I have written about Russia and its love of tradition here, its resistance to social Marxism here, and have shown here that in terms of economic policies and social policies, the US is much more socialist than today’s Russia.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer Chooses 'Gay' Tyranny over Freedom on SB 1062

on Friday, 28 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Guest Column

It's a core tenet of American civic life: the freedom to exercise one's religious beliefs shall not be infringed. But in America today, that freedom is being extinguished.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer Chooses 'Gay' Tyranny over Freedom on SB 1062

The powerful, media-fed “Gay Hysteria” machine exploded over Arizona Senate Bill 1062, which sought to protect the state’s citizens’ First Amendment liberty NOT to violate their conscience with regard to homosexual “marriages.” Arizona’s Republican Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed the bill, choosing to reward the Lying Left (the bill was terribly distorted) and cave in to political correctness rather than defend her constituents’ right to live out their faith.

Can a King Nullify the Law?: (Eight Reasons the Founders Would Be Against Nullification)

Written by Robert Broadus on Thursday, 27 February 2014. Posted in Robert Broadus, Opinion

The concept of nullification is lately in vogue. But those who see in it promise for limiting tyrannical government, also overlook the threat it poses to legitimate constitutionally limited government.

Can a King Nullify the Law?: (Eight Reasons the Founders Would Be Against Nullification)

The United States were founded in the singular, decisive act of asserting their freedom in the Declaration of Independence. This document explains why Christian men could go against their earthly rulers, something admonished by Romans 13. It also declares the principles upon which many would fight in order to win their liberty in generations to come.

Stupid, Evil or Both?

Written by Alan Caruba on Thursday, 27 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The policies of the progressive power block that controls our government are not only holding the nation back, they are damaging our standing in the world and undermining the well-being of citizens at home.

Stupid, Evil or Both?

For a long time now I have been trying to determine whether the Obama administration is stupid, evil or both. In addition to its long list of scandals, its governance of America increasingly looks like and acts as if the power granted to it by two elections exists to intimidate and harass Americans, inflict endless new taxes, and granted it the right to destroy one of the best healthcare systems and militaries in the world.

Why Obama is Uneducated

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 27 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Our republic is now infested with millions of fiction voters who elected a fiction president based on fairy-tale promises. And it’s looking less and less like our story ends with “happily ever after.”

Why Obama is Uneducated

A few years ago I participated in a radio debate on “white privilege” with a certain man, whose name is unimportant, who had a Ph.D. in “ethnic studies.” At one point he introduced an argument by saying, “If whites are 80 percent of the population…,” which prompted me to interject and point out that whites (non-Hispanic) are now only 63 percent of America. Of course, you might think that someone with a doctorate in “ethnic studies” would know what the ethnic and racial composition of the country is.

Tortured Traffic Laws

Written by Eric Peters on Thursday, 27 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

Traffic laws are obnoxious. They often are at odds with logic and safety. Sometimes, they appear to have been the work of the clinically insane.

Tortured Traffic Laws

At some point – I think it happened back in the late ’80s – a government bureaucrat decided it was “unsafe” to ride a motorcycle without wearing a helmet. Not content to wear one himself (assuming he rode motorcycles; in all likelihood he – probably she – never did) a law was passed requiring that all motorcyclists wear helmets.

Impeachment Chronicles

Written by Michael Anthony Peroutka Esq. on Thursday, 27 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Michael Peroutka

The Obama Administration is reportedly “debating” cold blooded murder. Should Congress be debating impeachment in response?

Impeachment Chronicles

According to a February 11th New York Times article by Mark Mazzetti and Eric Schmitt, the Obama administration is debating whether to authorize a lethal strike against an American citizen living in Pakistan.

Seeking the Blessing in the Midst of a Perverse and Crooked Nation

Written by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas on Wednesday, 26 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

We must stand for the truth and know the world will hate us for it (Matthew 10:22). This suffering, however, is redemptive and not destructive in scope.

Seeking the Blessing in the Midst of a Perverse and Crooked Nation

"And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing (Genesis 12:2)."

It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times

Written by Rev. David Whitney on Wednesday, 26 February 2014. Posted in David Whitney, Opinion

Americans are no longer taught, and no longer understand, where real Law comes from. Most now believe it is derived from the majority, while some believe law is justly promulgated by the police state, or by the unitary executive.

It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” So begins the famous work of Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities, a vivid historical novel describing that notorious reign of terror known as the French Revolution.

Voter's Remorse Over Obama

Written by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, 26 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

That members of Congress, pundits, and others now routinely call Obama a liar is a good sign because he is. But he is also still President of the United States of America and I suspect he doesn’t care what people say about him anymore.

Voter's Remorse Over Obama

I don’t recall when I first wrote about Obama telling lies, but it surely must have been early in his first term, if not even earlier in the 2008 campaign. So much of the information about his life was subject to question that it raised my concern.

Yes, We Should Discuss the Clintons' Past

Written by Star Parker on Tuesday, 25 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Star Parker

It is no accident that as values collapsed, as family disintegrated, the welfare state, big government, has grown and taken its place.

Yes, We Should Discuss the Clintons' Past

When Kentucky Senator and Republican presidential aspirant Rand Paul re-surfaced the Monica Lewinsky scandal as relevant to Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy, fellow Republican Karl Rove immediately took him to task on national television.
