The major news media, with the exception of Fox News, has been deafeningly quiet about the federal government’s thwarted raid last week on a Nevada rancher. Heavily-armed agents from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) descended upon Cliven Bundy’s ranch, seizing 389 of his 900 cattle. The [...]
Good news: the U.S. Department of Agriculture has published research indicating that there are lots of un-filled jobs and career opportunities in the farming industry. Bad news: the Obama Administration has been cannibalizing the nation’s farmers for the bigger part of the last six years. First the [...]
The word sacrifice when used by a liberal is always applied as an expectation for others, while conservatives use it individually.
The liberals/progressives/Democrats make every effort to enact laws to take more and more tax money from successful Americans to redistribute to their perpetually needy constituents. The [...]
For over two hundred and thirty years the American Republic has weathered wars, epidemics, hostile neighbors, worldwide conflicts, economic disasters, internal struggles, and competing ideologies. Its birth was a long and desperate struggle for independence against the strongest and most advanced military in the world. In the [...]
Should Puerto Rico explore following Crimea into the Russian Federation?
Puerto Rico’s biggest problem in dealing with Washington is of the same nature as that increasingly shared by too many Americans. Puerto Rico’s biggest problem in dealing with Washington is of the same nature as that [...]
Your average government – anywhere in the world – has more resources at its disposal than just about any private company on the planet.
So when a government sets its sites on making a private company’s life miserable – it almost always can. Because it can [...]
Each week it seems tougher to decide what to write about. There are so many things going wrong that it would be easy to write 5-6 articles a week. Think about it, elections in Afghanistan, Putin, missing airliner, civil rights, ObamaCare, global warming, climate change, mud slides, [...]
Going unnoticed amid this week’s entertainment news—the various selfies and jokes of jester-in-chief Barack Obama—came news that, according to a Harris poll, John Wayne is currently the seventh most favorite actor in America. Yes, you read that right. And while it’s true he was mostly the pick [...]
A short click over to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) website confirms their claim to be “the only national organization solely devoted to electing Republicans to the United States Senate.” This makes one wonder why the NRSC would involve itself in primary fights seeking to defeat [...]
Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people. ~Socrates
In my ongoing series on the Classics of Western Civilization, we now come to Plato, however, since Plato was a student of Socrates as well as the primary source for what we know [...]
I left a five minute message yesterday on the office telephone of President Lawrence of Brandeis University explaining why his decision to rescind the proposal to award Aayan Hirsi Ali an honorary degree was “A small step for Brandeis but a giant step for dhimmitude” (a [...]
If you think so, you need to reconsider.
The initial endeavor of newsmen is to “tell all”. Except when the gathering of information imperils the journalist’s life, that is the easy part. Alas, the bare facts get the public bored. By the [...]
Since the Internet now permeates our lives in every possible way, it is disturbing that Obama has relinquished U.S. control over its underlying structure. Control will be turned over to a global panel, which will include totalitarian countries that do not value our First Amendment protection of [...]
Network Neutrality is socialism for the Internet – it guarantees everyone equal amounts of nothing.
We’ll let college professor and avowed Marxist (please pardon the redundancy) Robert McChesney identify Net Neutrality’s objective:
“(T)he ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the [...]
Crimea. Venice. Scotland. Quebec. Catalonia. Colorado.
Crimea’s vote, a popular vote of no confidence in Kiev, to leave Ukraine (and rejoin Russia) is in some ways unique.
In other ways it appears part of an emerging, worldwide, trend.
Venice voted last week, in a nonbinding referendum, to [...]
The West Wing was for several years a fabulous television show – about a Democrat White House. Yes, I know, I’m a conservative and I wasn’t supposed to like it. But great writing is great writing, and Aaron Sorkin can seriously write. (He doesn’t bat 1.000, but [...]
In the summer of 2012, when Marita Noon and I began our collaboration in exposing the entire green corruption scheme, we covered a favored White House Spanish conglomerate in our piece “How Democrats Say ‘Crony Corruption’ in Spanish: Abengoa.”
Early this year, we received bombshell testimony, [...]
The Democrats, liberals and progressives in America have been assigned a distinctively political obligation to keep in step and in sync with their chosen one, Barack Hussein Obama. Why? Not to help America as a whole but to maintain the illusion of Obama’s success. They have been [...]
On Wednesday March 26, an audit of expenditures of federal funds by Wyoming government agencies was released to the public, in which the state Department of Education received extremely high marks for proper spending practices. This situation hardly made the news, and has generally been greeted with [...]
If a famine befell us and you couldn’t save everyone, would you withhold the food you had and let every citizen starve rather than endure the inequality of just saving some? If recent history is any guide, certain leftists just might say yes.
A good example of [...]
Halperin and Co. wrote a book about Obama’s bid for re-election. The Book Double Down Game Change 2012 doesn’t quite make sense and then it also makes a great deal of sense. Parts of the book are written as though the authors were sitting in on [...]
Fate is a disposition inherent to changeable things, by which Providence connects each one with its proper order.
~ Aquinas (attributed to Boethius)
The idea of Fate in literature, poetry, philosophy, politics and history was often presented in human form, sometimes abstractly personified as the opponent [...]
