About self-administered verbal anesthesia.
Every age and all cultures tend to accept certain statements as self-evident and, therefore, as true. The term, “crutch” comes to mind. One possibility is that the allegation is correct. Even for agnostics, the Ten Commandments might fit the category. [...]
If you haven’t seen Jim Sharpe’s interview with Andrew Thomas, please watch, it’s good. He has a proven record of not compromising, and still won’t. I’m very excited he got 40% of the vote in a Maricopa GOP straw poll. The next two closest candidates didn’t even get 20% each. This despite the fact that [...]
The Republican Party stands at the precipice of leading America back from the cultural, economic, legislative, and diplomatic disasters of the Obama years, except that in recent decades it has proven itself devoid of the necessary courage, leadership, or ideology to accomplish such a feat. Instead, it [...]
In the UK there’s an organisation, by the name Unite Against Fascism (UAF), which says that its primary aim is to “fight against racism and fascism”. This is what it says on the tin: “We believe that these dangers [“fascism” and “racism”] require a strong and united [...]
The Veterans Administration (VA) has been a disaster since just about its inception. Because it is government-only monopoly single-payer health care. Championed by the exact same people dying to impose it on all the rest of us.
Then-Community Organizer Barack Obama:
“I happen to be [...]
It has been an important hallmark of the conservative movement during its 50 year run to point to the steady decline of Western Civilization; to a broad disrespect for the rule of law in general, and specifically in the areas of religion, education and government. But many [...]
In reporting on the Navy’s reported new acquisition of helicopters for the president to be delivered in 2020, The Washington Post opens:
The last time the Pentagon tried to upgrade the president’s coolest ride — the fleet of helicopters that drop him at his doorstep on the [...]
The Media Marxist Left pushing the terrible Internet policy known as Network Neutrality oft are absurdly called “consumer groups.”
Major U.S. Consumer Groups Support (Federal Communications Commission) FCC Action on Net Neutrality
They want Net Neutrality because they want a single-payer government Web – they [...]
The latest Muslim rationalisations for the 1,400 year-old war between Islam and all that is non-Islamic involve the so-called “occupations” of Muslim countries; as well as the military actions (including drone attacks) carried out by Western states in Muslim countries. Take Asghar Bukhari (a British Pakistani) of [...]
It is time once again for a reality check, which may be difficult to achieve amid the liberal fanfare over the negotiated release of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held captive by the Taliban since his “capture” in 2009. If all of the joyous proclamations on the nightly news are any indication, the [...]
Once again, the American people have been betrayed by the Obama administration and blatantly lied to by administration officials. The anti-American Islam-friendly Obama regime has unilaterally and in violation of U.S. law, traded five high risk Taliban leaders detained at Club Gitmo for a traitor to the [...]
Commenting recently on the Elliot Rodger killings, arch-leftist Michael Moore wrote that while “other countries have more violent pasts…more guns per capita in their homes…and the kids in most other countries watch the same violent movies and play the same violent video games that our kids play, [...]
“All that has by nature with systematic method been arranged in the universe seems both in part and as a whole to have been determined and ordered in accordance with number… by the domination of number preexistent in the mind of the world-creating God…”
~ Nicomachus of Gerasa, Arithmetic I, Chap. VI
Republican U.S. Senator from Texas Ted Cruz represents a perfect opportunity for the American “constitutionalist” to examine the true Founders intent and meaning of the Natural Born Citizen clause found in Article II of the U.S. Constitution, a condition of eligibility for the highest political office in [...]
You were already thinking it.
For Richard Nixon, it was a cover-up surrounding illegal wiretapping. For Bill Clinton, it was lying under oath about sex with an intern. Obama thinks he’s untouchable. He believes he’s above the law.
Evidently, he’s right.
What will it take for [...]
One of the major complaints leveled at Veterans Administration (VA) officials has been their retaliation against military hospital staff who identify problems within their facilities. But according to the VA’s acting chief on Friday, those involved in intimidation or retaliation against whistleblowers will face serious disciplinary action. [...]
Despite President Barack Obama and his minions claiming the strength of the world’s radical Islamist network is waning and the threat to the United States minimal, a study released on Wednesday by a well-respected and highly-regarded think-tank contradicts what many call Obama’s myopic view of the terrorist [...]
It’s quite hilarious really: a Guardian (Britain’s leading “progressive” newspaper) article about election fraud throughout the UK lists all the places in which such fraud has been a serious problem. Virtually all those places have large Muslim populations. The problem is that The Guardian, of course, never [...]
Elliot Rodger, 22, son of Hunger Games director Peter Rodger, killed 7 people, including himself on May 23rd, 2014. He stabbed 3 people first, then shot 4, struck two cyclists, and wounded several others in his rampage before killing himself. He was addicted to graphically violent video [...]
Lawrence Lessig may be the greatest radical at work in America today. Lessig, a polymath, professor at Harvard Law School, is no ivory tower type. He is a radical — someone who strikes at the root of things — in the tradition of Thomas Jefferson. His latest [...]
Did you see that headline at CNN Money? The publication reported that recently revised numbers from the federal government show the economy shrank during the first quarter, marking the first decline in economic growth in about 3 years. The story then quoted an economist who believes the [...]
WHEN A PRESIDENT GOES ROGUE
By George F. Will, Washington Post, June 4 2014
What Winston Churchill said of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles — that he was a bull who carried his own china shop around with him — is true of Susan Rice, who is, to be polite, “accident-prone” .
How did Obama end up in this morass? Health-care reform long has been a central focus of modern American liberalism. The high priest of American socialism who offered the substance for these policies was John Rawls, an American political philosopher. Obama absorbed his views at Harvard Law [...]
