In 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor no one sat around wringing their hands and wondering “why did they do this to us?” Instead, they responded that if the Japanese want war, we will give it to them. They then declared war and went off to fight. Compare that with today when we have […]
Four Marines are dead. Gunned down in cold blood by a cowardly terrorist named Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez in Chattanooga, TN. These four Marines will never go home. Four families’ lives are forever changed. America lost four heroes.

We used to occasionally hear of Christian persecution taking place around the world, and it was disturbing but never on the scale we’re seeing today.

Jonathan Keiler’s interesting piece in the American Thinker on The Collapse of Arab Nationalism is misnamed. It is not that I disagree with most of Mr. Keiler’s assertions, but that the central premise of the title is that Arab Nationalism exists at all. It doesn’t, except for a […]
Having debated leftist veterans of the United States Armed Forces, one detail of their ethos is nauseatingly clear: if they served during wartime, they were entitled by proxy to be considered exceptional American citizens.
