Freedom is open to abuse by those that scorn the liberty of others. A British portal carries this title: “Extremists are setting up anti-British schools”. What does this tell us? The foes of liberty exploit the freedoms we grant. Thus, basic rights become instruments […]
This is an excerpt from John Harris’s new book, Climbing Backward Out of Caves, which makes a case for the rational basis of belief in a higher being.
Finally we have what is perhaps the twentieth century’s premier reason for denying God’s […]
Over 230 years ago, a group of men had a dream. They dreamed of a nation of free people. A nation that existed solely to allow its citizens to live out their own dreams on their own terms with their own God given talent and grit.
From Louisville, Kentucky, U.S. Senator Rand Paul declared his candidacy for the presidency. The run-up had all the pageantry now associated with such affairs: prayers, recitations of the Pledge of Allegiance, a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, and well-produced campaign videos galore.
There also was something […]
Paul Krugman, a few years ago, wrote at length to extol the magnum opus of science fiction grandmaster, Isaac Asimov, the Foundation Trilogy. Prof. Krugman’s reflections thereon are of keen interest.
I met Asimov once, 40+ years ago, at a world science fiction convention. I even […]
While modern leftist academics routinely mock the Judeo-Christian apocalypse prophesied in both the Old and New Testaments (Joel 2; Isaiah 24; Matthew 24-25; 2 Thessalonians 1-2; Revelation 6-19) as something only a deranged literalist could entertain in his own fundamentalist mindset, they remain completely […]
THIS IS AMERICA! This was the mantra of generations after the establishment of the United States of America. Our history shows that this nation was built with grit, toughness, a do it yourself and a get it done attitude. Sure, like any other great or not so great […]
On Tuesday, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul announced he was officially entering the Republican primary race for president. He is the second candidate to announce after Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. His speech was full of Reaganesque declarations, practically declaring a war on Washington, D.C. “We have come […]
Does this sound like an admonition? Such as in “run for good health”. Since the writer has experienced the University of Oregon’s legendary Bill Bowermann, and since then has stuck to daily running and weight lifting interrupted by reading Russian, such a call would be […]
How are we to understand the Democratic Party’s view of what validates a “majority view.” For the DP, the votes of the American people do not themselves legitimize the existence of a majority. All majority views are viable and to be tolerated as long as the majority is […]
Inspired by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s account of a Soviet labor camp revolt in Gulag Archipelago, Volume III, the story of FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS follows political prisoners and security officials at a corrective labor camp in Kamas, Utah, where inmates seize control during the summer of 2024.
There is a sharp and consequential asymmetry between left and right in American politics. It is my purpose here to describe the asymmetry and explain both its origins and consequences. But first an important clarification: the asymmetry does not refer to the stark differences in […]
In order to control millions of people totalitarian or proto-totalitarian governments find it necessary to somehow prod their subjects into accepting that which is not true. Intelligent people will naturally see the truth and thereby comprehend when government lies to them – and so that’s the rub […]
Day Four of Genesis gives us the second fundamental principle of morality, the principle that is the foundation of justice – equality under the law.
Day Four begins by confirming that the process of transforming the quantum universe into the Classical universe was complete. And according to Genesis, central to the process was the observation […]
The current presidential administration and State Department have been long touting that global warming/climate change are just as dangerous as Russian bears and Islamic terrorists. In February 2014, Secretary of State John Kerry addressed Asian leaders in Jakarta by informing them, “Climate change can now be considered […]
Taxation brought to you by ObamaCare. Capitalism or Socialism?
It has been a while since we devoted a full page to ObamaCare. I do love the fact that it is called ObamaCare. Some would call it a legacy for the communist, but it feels more […]
Now there are those who will scoff at the very mention of the word sin. But scoffing at sin is the same thing as scoffing at crime.
That is because crime is simply a human interpretation of sin. Crime has its origin in sin.
Judicial systems are an expression of our subconscious knowledge of right […]
The state of our nations’ disunity is epic. Our once great nation is in an accelerating death spiral and nobody seems to know who to blame or what to do about it, no matter how obvious the answers to those questions.
Unfortunately, most Americans have been carefully […]
The Republican Party has an embarrassment of riches in good prospective presidential contenders for next year’s race. Thus Gov. Jeb Bush’s debut speech — on February 4th, in Detroit, the start of of his “Right To Rise” tour — took on heightened importance.
Presidential campaigns are about […]
Rational discussions about National Socialism are often hard to come by. The word “Nazi” has become a vitriolic buzzword that only the Left has a license to use, especially against conservatives where many on the so-called political right are metaphorically and wrongfully characterized as present day fascists. All too many have since precluded that Nazism […]
It was a great pleasure to witness the decisions by the King of Jordan and President of Egypt to enter the fight against the scourge attempting to take over the Middle-East in the name of an “Islamic state.” This is a self-contradicting name. Islam is incapable of […]
We should be clear at the outset what we will be doing in this analysis.
We will not simply be substituting God for those things science cannot yet explain, although it is remarkable that Genesis does in fact make reference to the intervention of God at precisely those moments.
Neither will we claim that only […]
A wide array of issues and controversies populate the political terrain, but none are as important as the health and future of the middle class. A strong middle class has historically stood as a pillar of American society and constitutional democracy. It gave America its unique democratic […]
This series of articles will show that the evidence for the existence of God is overwhelming. In legal terms, the evidence proves the existence of God beyond a reasonable doubt. They will also show how God chose to reveal Himself to us, and how that enables us to know His Law and His […]
