Spectacularly Wrong

Written by Alan Caruba on Sunday, 10 August 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

If you read Barack Obama’s Cairo speech from start to finish, you are likely to conclude that a self-deluded fool gave it, a man determined to avoid confronting the enemies of mankind until an Islamic-inspired genocide required it.

Spectacularly Wrong

A Remarkable 37th President

Written by Alan Caruba on Saturday, 09 August 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Nixon brought about change on the basis of his vast knowledge of history, foreign affairs, and his judgment regarding the American people. By contrast, President Obama does not seem to like the American people or America.

A Remarkable 37th President

Forty years ago, on August 9, 1974, Richard Nixon resigned the office of President; the first and only President to do so.

It's about the Money, Not the Climate

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 08 August 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The lies that governments, the United Nations, and the International Monetary Fund tell about the climate are about the money they can extract from citizens who must be kept frightened enough to pay taxes on their use of energy.

It's about the Money, Not the Climate

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), the Irish poet and dramatist, wrote “Pray don't talk to me about the weather. Whenever people talk to me about the weather, I always feel quite certain that they mean something else.”

Islamic Slaughters and Short Memories

Written by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, 06 August 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

We cannot expect President Obama to engage the Islamic State. The term “Commander-in-Chief” has never been more misapplied to him than any President.

Islamic Slaughters and Short Memories

"We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized.  That would change my calculus. That would change my equation."

The News Media Now Reports All Weather as "Extreme"

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 05 August 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The news media will continue to misrepresent the weather and/or climate and those determined to keep us from accessing and using the USA’s vast reserves of coal, oil and natural gas will continue to lie about it.

The News Media Now Reports All Weather as

In a desperate effort to keep the global warming hoax alive even though it is now called “climate change”, the meteorologically challenged print and broadcast media is now declaring all weather “extreme” these days.

Yes, Sue Our Lawless President!

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 04 August 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Is suing the President just a political stunt? Not exactly.

Yes, Sue Our Lawless President!

“Today, however, President Obama has taken the concept of discretion and so distorted it, and has taken the obligation of faithful enforcement and so rejected it, that his job as chief law enforcer has become one of incompetent madness or chief lawbreaker. Time after time, in areas as disparate as civil liberties, immigration, foreign affairs and health care, the President has demonstrated a propensity for rejecting his oath and doing damage to our fabric of liberty that cannot easily be undone by a successor.”

The War on Smoking (Except Maybe Pot)

Written by Alan Caruba on Sunday, 03 August 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

More and more, “progressive” government is taking the joy out of life. By its very nature, it must control everyone and everything they eat, drink, or enjoy.

The War on Smoking (Except Maybe Pot)

How obscene is it for a Florida jury to award $23.6 billion to the widow of a man who died of lung cancer in 1996? She sued R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company by asserting that her husband had been “fooled” into starting the smoke at age 13. Apparently he had never heard cigarettes referred to as “coffin nails”, a slang term that has been around since the last century. And how come all those patches, chewing gum, and other means to stop smoking had no effect, if used by her late husband?

The Carbon TAX Scam

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 01 August 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

In addition to all the other White House efforts to saddle Americans with higher costs, it has now launched a major effort to push its “climate change” agenda with a carbon tax high on its list.

The Carbon TAX Scam

In a recent appearance before a congressional committee, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy told them that the agency’s proposed sweeping carbon-regulation plan was “really an investment opportunity. This is not about pollution control.”

Climate Alarmists Never Quit!

Written by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, 30 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

In the months to come we will see marches and meetings intended to further the global warming lies. The good news is that fewer Americans are being influenced by such efforts.

Climate Alarmists Never Quit!

In the same way Americans are discovering that the Cold War that was waged from the end of World War Two until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 is not over, Americans continue to be subjected to the endless, massive, global campaign to foist the hoax of global warming--now called climate change—on everyone.

Israel's "Disproportionate" Self-Defense

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 29 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Would Americans tolerate random missiles raining on their cities? Would Europeans tolerate this? Would anyone? So, what should Israel do, if not defend itself?

Israel's

On Sunday, July 27, Eleanor Clift, a member of The McLaughlin Group panel, referred to Israel’s “disproportionate” response to the thousands of rockets and missiles that Hamas has been firing at its citizens for months, if not years.

The Next Great War

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 28 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The war we are in today, in the Middle East, in Africa, in Europe and in America, and around the world, is a war against Judaism and Christianity.

The Next Great War

In the July 24 edition of The Wall Street Journal there was a commentary, “Wanted: Converts to Judaism” by the chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary, Arnold M. Eisen. I thought to myself that this was an extraordinary time to be suggesting conversion to a faith that is literally under attack in Israel and being attacked by the reemergence of anti-Semitism in Europe. Here in America we are witnessing the most pro-Islamic and anti-Semitic administration in the history of nation.

Should the Government Tell You What to Eat?

Written by Alan Caruba on Monday, 28 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The government has no business telling Americans what they should eat. It too frequently offers bad science and almost always propaganda. In the home of the brave and land of the free this is yet another intrusion in the lives of Americans.

Should the Government Tell You What to Eat?

Given the successive scandals and monster laws like Obamacare that have been imposed on Americans, the federal government’s efforts to control and determine what you eat doesn't receive the attention that it should. The ultimate question is whether the government should tell you what to eat and then seek to enforce their views about it? The answer is no.

A Great Plan to Replace the EPA

Written by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, 23 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The EPA has grown into a regulatory Godzilla, devouring the wealth and prosperity of the nation. It's time it was abolished.

A Great Plan to Replace the EPA

For years now I have been saying that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must be eliminated and its powers given to the fifty states, all of which, have their own departments of environmental protection. Until now, however, there has been no plan put forth to do so.

The Nexus of Illegal Drugs and Illegal Immigration

Written by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, 23 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The appetite for illegal drugs that has been a part of life in the U.S. for many citizens has contributed to the illegal alien flow from the Latin American nations whose governments have been undermined by the drug cartels.

The Nexus of Illegal Drugs and Illegal Immigration

All manner of reasons are being offered to explain the influx of thousands of illegal aliens, not the least of which is President Obama’s open invitation to Latin Americans to come here with the promise of becoming citizens at some point. By overloading the southern border, this has opened the doors to criminals and potential terrorists as well.

The Nemesis of Agenda21

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 22 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Did you know that being opposed to "sustainable development" as called for by Agenda 21 is enough to get you branded as a hateful extremist?

The Nemesis of Agenda21

Watching left-wing organizations lose their wits denouncing conservatives is always fun and particularly if you know one of their targets. In my case, that would be Tom DeWeese, the founder and president of the American Policy Center; the most expert and outspoken opponent of Agenda21 in the nation.
