Passionate About Conservatism

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 28 October 2014. Posted in Books, LifeStyle, Opinion, Alan Caruba

Conservatives often feel outnumbered because of the incessant cacophony of the liberal media. But a new book by the "Chicks on the right" reminds that conservatism is popular (as well as right).

Passionate About Conservatism

We conservatives tend to be rather low key when it comes to expressing our commitment to conservative values. We are all about the Constitution, small government, a strong military, and fiscal prudence, but these are not things that are easy to talk about in a passionate way, no matter how strongly we feel about them.

Obama's War on U.S. Energy

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 28 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Wondering why the US economy still seems so fragile? Part of the answer is the Obama administration's relentless war on energy.

Obama's War on U.S. Energy

September 19th was an anniversary you did not read or hear about in the nation’s news media. It marked six years—2008—since the first permit application for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline was submitted to the federal government. Can you imagine how many jobs its construction would have created during a period of recovery from the 2008 financial crisis? President Obama is universally credited with delaying it.

The Islamic Madness Persists

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 24 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The Middle East is a boiling cauldron, with millions of refugees, aggressive terrorist organizations, and nation-states with dangerously high stakes.

The Islamic Madness Persists

The lull in the coverage of all things Islamic was broken by two terrorist attacks in Canada, a reminder that so long as the world does not unite to destroy the Islamic State, we shall all remain vulnerable. A “lone wolf” terrorist can kill you just as dead as one in a terrorist organization, particularly one encouraging these attacks.

No Ebola Panic Despite Media Hysteria

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 24 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The results of Obama’s six years in office have been a disaster in many ways, and handling of ebola has been another debacle.

No Ebola Panic Despite Media Hysteria

One man has died of Ebola in the U.S. and he came here from Liberia. Two of the nurses that tended him are in intensive care and likely to survive. A third was thought to be infected, but wasn’t. That news has been sufficient to keep most Americans calm as the media has done its best to exploit Ebola-related news.

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 greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country: assalaamu alaykum”

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.
