The High Cost of Empire - Obama’s Outrageous Travel Expenses

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Tuesday, 08 April 2014. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

If the President really cared about income inequality and restoring prosperity for Americans, he would lead by example and his own behavior would be much more modest.

The High Cost of Empire - Obama’s Outrageous Travel Expenses

President Obama and the dumb-o-crats are always worried about the little people. Income inequality is holding them back, they say as they feign worry about the lower castes of American society.

A new analysis finds that America is not the happiest nation on earth. Here are five reasons the country is in the dumps.

Not So Happy in the Good Old USA

The latest pseudo-scientific nonsense delivered by a “big data” analysis of dreck dredged up from social media comes from an outfit called “Jetpac” that publishes travel guides.

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."

It’s Time To Stop the Transfer of American Wealth to Other Nations

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Tuesday, 04 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Everyone knows the Federal Budget is out of control. To start reigning in spending, it’s time to cut off the foreign aid gravy train.

It’s Time To Stop the Transfer of American Wealth to Other Nations

The United States is deeply in debt. As of February 27, 2014, total federal debt amounted to $17.4 trillion dollars. The figure topped $17 trillion in October after a then unprecedented $328 billion increase. Since hitting the $17 trillion mark, the Obama administration has added an additional $350 billion to the debt since then.

John Kerry’s Dialectic: The Climate Change Gambit

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Saturday, 22 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

The Secretary of State’s attack on climate change skeptics is classic collectivist propaganda.

Secretary of State John Kerry

Collectivists are very simple minded. Unable to come to grips with the complexity of individuality, they instead lump people together into groups. For the National Socialists of Hitlerian Germany, there were groups of Jews and Aryans. For the international socialists of the communist nations, there were the bourgeoisie and the proletariat. For tribal collectivists, there is one tribe versus another. But, ultimately, all collectivism is of a tribalist mindset.

If You Wear Google Glass, You Might Be a Terrorist

Federal Agents from the Department of Homeland Security interrogate man wearing Google Glass at an Ohio movie theater.

If You Wear Google Glass, You Might Be a Terrorist

What does the Department of Homeland Security do?

Based on the name of the vast bureaucracy, you’d think that it would be involved in stopping terrorist attacks, or securing the nation against other existential threats.

Cynics, on the other hand, would say that the agency has Orwellian overtones and that it represents a threat to basic liberties.

America's Brain Drain on Display

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Tuesday, 01 October 2013. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Far from being an exceptional nation, it seems we've become instead an exceptionally ill-informed one. As a result, voters have accepted, and even demanded, government policies that are causing the decline of the nation.

America's Brain Drain on Display

Employers these days lament that students entering the workforce lack basic skills. College professors fret that incoming freshman lack basic understanding of history, language, science and culture. And voters keep putting Democrats in office and Obama in the White House.

Clearly, we're in deep trouble.

Congress, War Powers and Syria

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Tuesday, 27 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

The potential for an attack on Syria once again raises the thorny constitutional question of who, the President or Congress, has war-making authority.

Congress, War Powers and Syria

In the wake of the deadly poison gas attack in Syria that has claimed many, many lives, expectations around the world hold that the Obama administration will approve military action against the Assad regime.

Obama Administration To Investigate Itself Over Surveillance Scandal

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Tuesday, 13 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

In the wake of the surveillance scandal unveiled by leaks delivered by whistleblower Edward Snowden, the administration has now announced that it will investigate itself.

Obama Administration To Investigate Itself Over Surveillance Scandal

On August 12, Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper posted a brief statement on the Director of National Intelligence Website announcing the formation of a "Review Group On Intelligence and Communication Technologies."

It's Just Metadata?

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Friday, 21 June 2013. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Maybe the government isn't reading or listening to the content of your communications. But its collection of metadata is just as bad.

It's Just Metadata?

The NSA scandal erupted a few weeks ago with revelations from Edward Snowden that the super secret agency was collecting electronic information about all Americans. That scandal has tempered somewhat in the face of the government's attempt to smear the messenger and its effort to assure people that they are only collecting metadata rather than the actual content of the intercepted communications.

Bradlee Dean versus the Progressive Regime

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Tuesday, 28 May 2013. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Bradlee Dean’s ongoing legal battle with Rachel Maddow is a David vs. Goliath encounter, and he needs your help.

Bradlee Dean versus the Progressive Regime

If it wasn’t obvious before, it should be by now. The progressive establishment, which has captured many of the levers of hard power in government, and which controls a large percentage of the soft power wielded by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the media, has embarked upon an aggressive campaign to use its massive power to crush and punish its conservative and libertarian opponents.

Surfing the Nanny State

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Wednesday, 30 January 2013. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

An extreme athlete appears to have set a new world record by surfing a towering 100-foot wave. A nanny-state mentality would have prevented this achievement.

Surfing the Nanny State

The nanny state is predicated on the idea that people are stupid and need to be protected from harming themselves and others through their ignorance. 

Should We Ban Guns or Abortion?

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Thursday, 10 January 2013. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

While the White House and Congressional Democrats work themselves into a lather over gun deaths, they have nothing to say about ending the genocide of abortion.

Should We Ban Guns or Abortion?

Vice President Joe Biden has said that the Obama administration is going to take executive (read dictatorial) action to implement gun control.

Welcome to the End of the World

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Friday, 21 December 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Everyone worries about the end of the world and how it will come, by flood, volcano, or comet. But what if the apocalypse was not a material event but a cultural and political one?

Welcome to the End of the World

Here it is, at long last, the day the Mayan calendar runs out according to popular culture. Browsing Netflix will show just how popular this idea of the end of time is as documentaries on the "2012 Apocalypse" abound. The viewpoint expressed in these and countless online articles on the same subject is that the material world, and human civilization with it, will be destroyed.

Perspectives on Gun Violence and Gun Control

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Tuesday, 18 December 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Those calling for more gun control believe this to be self-evident: More regulation will mean fewer guns, resulting in less gun crime. But is it true?

Perspectives on Gun Violence and Gun Control

In the wake of yet another mass shooting, liberal demagogues from the President on down are suggesting it is "time to do something" to control private ownership of guns in the United States. Their argument is that the easy availability of firearms in America makes it possible, and even likely, that horrible mass shootings will be commonplace and that removing guns via strict regulation will cause gun violence to decrease, saving lives.
