For the last several weeks the American and the Israeli national press, as well as the American Jewish press have debated the wisdom of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to accept House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to address a joint session of Congress concerning the Iranian nuclear program. President Obama has indicated […]
I tried to watch the Academy Awards with my wife on Sunday night, February 22nd,but I could not get through the entire event. It has been several years since I watched an entire Academy Awards presentation and I now know why.
The organization behind this self-congratulatory left wing […]
Washington, DC, is the capital of the United States. Yet Silicon Valley is the true capital of the America of the present and the future. Silicon Valley and its satellites gave us personal computers, web browsing, email, Amazon, eBay, PayPal, Facebook, Uber, Airbnb, iPhones, iPads, and other […]
The Barack Obama Administration’s Thursday Internet uber-power grab is awful for just about every American. It will lead to dramatically more expensive Web access – because of both raised service costs and huge new taxes.
And we will see a spiraling, regressive devolution of speed. It […]
Nigel Farage, leader of the UKIP
I attended the annual Conservative Political Action Conference this past weekend, and as usual, it ended with a much hyped but slanted presidential straw poll. Alternative conservative Rand Paul came in first place, followed by Scott Walker, then […]
It is a historical reality that successful societies, nations and the like eventually reach a point of maturity, and then proceed to transition into something else, burn out, or become the victims of conquest. It is this premise that lies behind Richard Engle’s new book, The Last […]
I made plenty of my male friends jealous meeting pundit Michelle Fields. My cousin thinks we’re related. Not sure how I feel about that, since she’s rather good looking!
I had barely submitted this article for publication when I was made aware of an article that claims researchers at MIT had proved that atoms naturally produce life.
The article claims that the “new theory … proposes that when a group of atoms is exposed for a long time to a source of energy, it […]
This past Monday marked the 70th anniversary of Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima, the most famous photograph in U.S. military history and one of the greatest photographs of all time. As is generally known, it was taken by Joseph Rosenthal, an Associated Press photographer, on February […]
By the end of Day Two, the material in the universe had not changed from the beginning of Day Two. The universe was still composed of hydrogen, helium and traces of beryllium and lithium. And there were photons of light.
The only thing that had changed was the concentration of the material in certain places […]
Interest in the 2016 presidential election contest is heating up. It is an arguably unfortunate aspect of the US national political scene that no more than midway through a presidential term, the nation might be paying as much attention to whom the next occupant of the […]
Students at Benchmark Preschool and Elementary School in Phoenix
If you haven’t paid close attention to the school choice movement over the past 10 years, you might not realize how much it has changed. Due to lawsuits and other limitations, innovators have figured out that tuition […]
The key to understanding the account of Day Two in Genesis is the word in verse 6 that has been translated as “the firmament.”
Again, for ease of reference, here is the full account of Day Two. References are to the King James Version.
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst […]
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 […]
Obama’s recent comments at a national prayer breakfast raised a host of critical eyebrows. The most offending comment from the president’s address was as follows..
“Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and […]
You’ve heard the phrase “patent trolls,” yes? Certainly not a positive sounding term. I mean – trolls? How positive an image does that conjure?
The Media are almost always opposed to all things good. So when they with near unanimity help promulgate a term – you […]
It is amusing to say the least to read Hillary’s book Hard Choices. She must have thought she could be like Obama and write a book for blacks and get the black vote. Hillary thought she could write a book about woman and mention the words woman […]
Our Constitution has become a suicide pact.
That’s the view of Thomas Jefferson, expressed in an 1819 letter to jurist Spencer Roane, when he said “If this opinion be sound, then indeed is our constitution a complete felo de se” (suicide pact). The opinion Jefferson referred to […]
Dear candidate for president of the United States:
Congratulations on your decision to pursue a career as leader of the free world. The following exam, while in no way comprehensive, is intended to assess your basic qualifications and level of occupational competency. Though a failing grade does […]
Ever since my days at the Evergreen State College when I listened to died in the wool Marxists and environmentalists peddle their propaganda to many empty jeans (Evergreen students), I have always been criticized for being an idealist in my writings and discussions – which is a […]
American Electric Power and FirstEnergy have been trying to leverage their positions as monopolies to drive rooftop solar out of West Virginia. The goal is to force a private sector competitor out of the market. What’s worse, the monopolies are turning to the government to do their […]
Back in 2009 the author published critique of the Supreme Court case of Texas v. White. This case was a Reconstruction Era matter, which Supreme Court Chief Justice Salmon Chase manufactured into an excuse for declaring that the states of the union had no right to leave it once they had joined. Despite this, there […]
This column likes to assert that the threat to our way of life does not reflect the muscles of its enemy. Materially, the challenger is too backward to upset the world order. This applies, whether the identified foes are Marxists, traditional ethnic imperialists (Russia), religious […]
