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.

Cop: I’d Love to "Bang Down Your Door and Come for Your Gun"

Police officers sometimes argue that their job is to enforce all laws equally. But should unjust laws be enforced?

Cop: I’d Love to

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order was issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment.

Jan Brewer Veto Represents the Pursuit of Unhappiness

Written by Michael Anthony Peroutka Esq. on Wednesday, 12 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Michael Peroutka

Living prosperously by living righteously is what Jefferson meant when he used the phrase “pursuit of happiness.”

Jan Brewer Veto Represents the Pursuit of Unhappiness

When Arizona Governor Jan Brewer recently vetoed a bill that would have given some measure of protection to business owners in Arizona who wished to exercise their liberty of conscience and their right NOT to be associated with persons and activities that violate their religious beliefs, she demonstrated, I believe, what happens when civil government becomes untethered from God’s eternal, transcendent standard of right and wrong.

on Wednesday, 12 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Letter From Congress

Rep. Cantor: "We all know ObamaCare is not working, but the bottom line is that no law should jeopardize our American values of religious freedom, military service, volunteerism, and entrepreneurship."

Congressman Eric Cantor (VA-7) released the following statement on three pieces of legislation that remove punitive mandates under ObamaCare that punish volunteers, veterans, and those with certain sincerely held religious beliefs:

Fear Paralyzes

Written by Rev. David Whitney on Wednesday, 12 March 2014. Posted in David Whitney, Opinion

The Connecticut legislature passed a gun registration law. History clearly teaches us that registration is the first step to confiscation. So it is no surprise to see what has happened next.

Fear Paralyzes

It seems that we live in dangerous times. There are those who tell us the danger is some people hiding in a cave over in the Middle East that is our gravest danger, but there is another line of thinking that reveals we have a greater danger right here on our own shores. Consider what is happening in the State of Connecticut.

Obama Golfs While Americans Job-Seek

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

Obama and his administration is so detached from reality that it is afflicting millions of Americans who want to work while at the same time its policies are reducing the number of new jobs being created.

Obama Golfs While Americans Job-Seek

A close relative of mine has been spending months job-seeking and the news from the White House in the first week of March was that the President was playing golf in Key Largo while Joe Biden was in the Virgin Islands soaking up the sun. It’s not that they don’t deserve some down time, but down time for the unemployed is full time. The U.S. has 866,000 fewer people employed today than when the recession began in the wake of the 2008 recession.

No Political Fix to America's Death Spiral

Written by J. Matt Barber on Tuesday, 11 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

We are drowning in a turgid river of postmodern relativism. This is a spiritual problem, not a political problem. This is a worldview matter, not a partisan matter.

No Political Fix to America's Death Spiral

The question is not, “Is America falling?” but, rather, “Why is America falling?”

I’m currently writing from CPAC 2014, the nation’s largest gathering of conservative political junkies. The event is being held at the beautiful Gaylord National hotel, adjacent to the scenic shoreline of the historic Potomac River. We’re just a few short miles from Washington, D.C., which, at least for now, remains the modern-day equivalent of the Roman Empire.

From Rotten Luck to Rotten Row and the Journey in Between

Whether it be a physical need or a spiritual need, God is still active and working in our generation using human clay pots as earthling agents.

From Rotten Luck to Rotten Row and the Journey in Between

A lifetime member of the Side Saddle Association, there was a time when I was passionate about riding side saddle. After taking my first lesson at the Mark Phillips Equestrian center then located at the Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland, I was hooked. Even after the horse bit me.

It’s with mixed reviews that the Tea Party is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its emergence onto the nation’s political scene.

Straw Votes and Real Votes

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 11 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

If the Democrats wasted all their political capital on Obamacare, by contrast, CPAC this year shows that the Republicans have been building a strong team of Governors and legislators who are poised to be strong conservative voices for years to come.

Straw Votes and Real Votes

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is over after three days of speakers and seminars. It drew a huge crowd of mostly younger voters, many drawn from the Young Republicans for Freedom who, in 1973, teamed with the American Conservative Union for the first conference. Over the years roughly half of those attending have been of college age.

Mr. Rohrabacher's Additional Views on the Science Space & Technology FY 2014 Budget

on Tuesday, 11 March 2014. Posted in Space, Sci/Tech, Opinion, Letter From Congress

Rep. Rohrabacher: "We have not yet received a budget request from the President for Fiscal Year 2014, and the previous request did not contain any real budget planning for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)."

Mr. Rohrabacher's Additional Views on the Science Space & Technology FY 2014 Budget

By the office of Congressman Dana Rohrabacher 

Although I strongly agree with much of the Committee’s Views and Estimates, there is one specific area on which I wish to state a different view, as I have done for the past few years.

Democrat Climate Caucus Reveals Its Stupidity

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 10 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Democrats are so afraid of the political fallout from the devastation of Obamacare and the lies told to support it that they are desperate to divert voter’s attention to anything else.

Democrat Climate Caucus Reveals Its Stupidity

The nation seems to be passing through a period in which too many U.S. Senators have been elected without so much as a high school level understanding of what drives the Earth’s climate and it isn’t the 0.038% of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere.

This year's Academy Awards: Once again, a celebration of the depravity and decay of American cinematic art.

John Bolton for President?

Written by Donald Hank on Monday, 10 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

John Bolton has some conservatives fired up. But don't be fooled - he's just another in a long line of neocon hawks.

John Bolton for President?

Some Americans are stirred up over John Bolton's speech at CPAC, which is linked to in enthusiastic viral emails. I’m sure you’ve seen it by now. The fact is, though, that Bolton is just another GOP shill who knows how to throw conservatives a bone or two but sidesteps the meaty issues.
