The Atheist Crusade Against a Conservative Christian History Professor

Recently I received an email, the subject line of which provocatively suggested that atheists were on the “warpath” against a university professor. Intrigued, I clicked on the email and opened up the linked article. I have to admit that I was less interested in the story than I was in identifying this conservative professor and […]

Race and Justice in Ferguson Missouri

 

As expected, the lack of an indictment in the matter of the death of Michael Brown has sparked riots, violence, looting, and according to some reports at least one death.

Freedom of Religion is Not a Suicide Pact

My worthy colleague George Handlery recently wrote a piece on how the enemies of freedom are using our constitutional protections and similar freedoms in other nations as a leverage to take over those governments and societies. Mr. Haldlery’s analysis is correct, raising the question of when one may restrict freedoms in the name of preserving […]

Duly Noted - The Enemy? He is Us.

It is a natural inclination to endeavor to assess threats, whether immediate or only discernible to those with a vision. Such calculations are made in terms of the foe’s inclinations, and physical means. These estimates like to […]

Misunderstanding the Military

General Patton was famously quoted back during World War II that it wasn’t the job of the soldier to die for his country; his job was to make the other SOB die for his. Patton was correct, as is Rush Limbaugh when he says that the job of the military is to kill people and […]

1. The Ukraine complained that a Russian armored column has entered her territory. That came after the “peaceful invasion” of quickly re-painted army trucks.

Foreign policy as an act of atonement.

Is “Christian” the Latest Word to Mean Nothing at All?

Pope Francis and El Gran Carnicero

Rather than swinging the vote rightward on critical issues, self-styled Christians are increasingly opting for secular utopia.

Does it make sense to practice the Christian faith? Is it right to do so?

These are two distinct questions, and the answers to both, […]

Why the Left Hates Israel

Sometimes one is left wondering exactly why the political left hates Israel so much. After all, a large number of people who founded the state were on the left, themselves. That is why the Kibbutz settlements were so popular. People voluntarily organized into collectivist communities in some of which private property was not recognized. Additionally, […]

“Higher Values” exploited to Justify Convenient Inaction.

 

While growing-up in the happy realm of the Soviet Union’s “outer empire”, one was harangued with the assertion that “western decadence” guarantees “final victory”. That trait was attributed to capitalism, which was condemned to death by its […]

Duly Noted - Hardliner Immigrants and Compliant Hosts

Duly NotedIt would be convenient to claim that “Duly Noted’s” responds here to the International Day of Refugees (June 20th). It would also be opportune to add that the writer represents an earlier vintage of refugees to defuse guilt by violating PC. However, the truth is beyond […]

PROGRESSIVE REFORMERS LOVE & NEED THE MISERY OF THOSE WHOM THEY ALLEGEDLY HELP

When will the “caring” activists of the left ever learn? Never have so few individuals – with so many good intentions – created so much misery for so many people whom they wanted to help.
