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?

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?

Strengthen the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act

Written by Star Parker on Tuesday, 18 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Star Parker

My colleagues find in their investigations around the nation that Kermit Gosnell was by no means one of a kind.

Strengthen the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act

One year ago, on March 18, 2013, the trial of abortion monster Dr. Kermit Gosnell began in Philadelphia. Two months later Gosnell was convicted on three charges of murder, 21 felony counts of performing illegal late-term abortions, and 211 counts of violating the 24-hour informed consent laws.

Tranny Time: U.S. Military Becoming Global Joke

Written by J. Matt Barber on Monday, 17 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

Progressive socialists in America have long sought to weaken and undermine the nation's commitment to honor and morality. To facilitate this effort, they have targeted the traditionally conservative branches of the military.

Tranny Time: U.S. Military Becoming Global Joke

Hold on, I’ve got a good one. What do you get when Joycelyn Elders, Barack Obama and a cross-dressing billionaire walk into a bar to discuss the U.S. Marines?

U.S. Energy, the Ukraine, and Russia

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 17 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

U.S. energy policy and U.S. foreign policy are both at odds with the best interests of Americans.

U.S. Energy, the Ukraine, and Russia

Ukraine came apart when a protest against its president forced him to flee to Russia. The issue was whether Ukraine would be allied with Russia or with the European Union. Due to a combination of the obscene corruption of its former president, Viktor Yanukovych, and the mismanagement of the nation in general, the Ukrainian Parliament ousted him in February, a move supported by 328 members of the Parliament. He still claims to be president.

Higher Education Is A Hard Row To Ho

To avoid raising a genius of genitalia is not that hard. But how do we stop dads from choosing the gore of war?

Higher Education Is A Hard Row To Ho

Who's the bigger prostitute? Sex kitten "Belle Knox," alias Miriam Weeks, a promising porn star who is studying at Duke University, or her father, Dr. Kevin Weeks, an army doctor who recently returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan?

If Cops Want to Be Viewed as Heroes...

Written by Eric Peters on Monday, 17 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

If police want our respect – rather than our contempt – they ought to behave more like the heroes they purport to be. That means talking first – and shooting later. Ideally, never – unless shot at first.

If Cops Want to Be Viewed as Heroes...

Cops seem to have an almost frantic need to be regarded as “heroic” – yet they all-too-often act in ways that are downright cowardly.

Common Core Will Federalize Education

on Monday, 17 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Letter From Congress

Rep. Bridenstine: "True education reform would put power back in the hands of the states and local school boards, where government is closest to parents and students."

Common Core Will Federalize Education

By Congressman Jim Bridenstine

While Common Core may have started as a state-led effort, the Obama Administration has seized on it as a federal goal and is using federal funds to coerce states into implementing Common Core. 

What’s So Special About the US Constitution, Anyway?

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Friday, 14 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Most every nation has its own Constitution, and even at least one Supreme Court Justice thinks foreign constitutions might be better than our own. But the U.S. Constitution is special.

What’s So Special About the US Constitution, Anyway?

Progressives hate the Constitution. They like to claim that it is a "living" document that should change with the times. Columnist and pastor Byron Williams exemplifies this view. Writing for the Huffington Post in 2012, he quipped: "Though I would not consider myself on an intellectual par with James Madison, I would say that I have a better understanding of what 'We the people of the United States in order to form a more perfect union' looks like in the 21st century than he does."

Victimization of America

Written by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas on Friday, 14 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

Under the Obama Administration, America has entered an Alice in Wonderland nightmare. In the name of the courts, law is denied. In the name of freedom, tyrannies multiply. In the name of choice, abortion murders. In the name of fairness, injustice reigns.

Victimization of America

Relentless Global Warming "Scientists" Continue Their Scams

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 14 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Now some scientists are pointing to new gases in the atmosphere in another attempt to stoke environmental fears.

Relentless Global Warming

Despite the growing worldwide recognition that global warming—now called climate change—is a hoax and that the Earth has been in a cooling cycle going on seventeen years, those most responsible for it continue to put forth baseless “science” about it.

Neither a degree in political science nor an IQ above four is required to know that neoconservatism has always championed Big Government.

A colleague of mine has drawn my attention to a Washington Post blog post—“Why Most Conservatives Are Secretly Liberals”—by a Professor John Sides, a political scientist at Georgetown University. 

The GOP: Playing David to the Tea-Party’s Uriah

Written by John Kirkwood on Wednesday, 12 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, John Kirkwood

What has the GOP done lately to haul back on the reins of big government? Nothing, of course. And now entrenched RINOs are stopping at nothing to squash tea party inspired and backed candidates.

The GOP: Playing David to the Tea-Party’s Uriah

Mitch McConnell (R-epulsive, Ky.) is talking tough about tea party-backed candidates challenging GOP Establinishtas in this year's midterm elections, "I think we are going to crush them everywhere," the Senate Minority Leader told the New York Times. "I don't think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country."

The Palestinian's Real Enemies

Written by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, 12 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Who are the enemies of the Palestinians? It is not the Israelis who have spent more than six decades trying to come to some arrangement with them to achieve peace and end their daily attacks.

The Palestinian's Real Enemies

As the crisis in Ukraine unfolded, President Obama met with Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel while John Kerry, the Secretary of State, continued to flog Obama’s push to get Israel to grant the Palestinians a state of their own. At their meeting Netanyahu was far more concerned with Obama’s failure to stop Iran from making its own nuclear weapons. He repeated that Israel will do whatever it must to protect itself.
