Firstly, he had spent a portion of his youth in Indonesia, and purportedly had traveled to Pakistan at some point. Secondly, he had taken a class in foreign affairs or foreign policy while at Columbia University. Proponents of […]
Putin under pressure, while some concessions confirm that their originator is a fool.

In the wake of the recent Bundy Ranch standoff, the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has placed its greedy eyes on a 90,000 acres of land on the Texas / Oklahoma border.

Beginning in the late 1970s, an offshoot of Marxism known as Critical Legal Studies took hold in the American legal academy. Born in May 1977 at a law and society colloquium at Madison, Wisconsin, Critical Legal Studies was an outgrowth of postmodernism. This school of thought held […]
Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In and Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, has a line in her book that states “I want every little girl who’s told she’s bossy to be told instead that she has leadership skills.” As you have probably heard by now, her Lean […]
This columnist’s admiration for Senator Rand Paul is driven, in part, by Sen. Paul’s consistent and honorable stand against the “warfare/welfare state.” Rising-star national talk radio host, and columnist, Steve Deace astutely observes in a recent Washington Times op-ed, “he’s the only candidate running that is attempting […]
It’s Tax Day in America. Which brings to mind one of the late, great Ronald Reagan’s many great lines:
“Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the Democrats believe every day is April 15.”
And of course Reagan was right. Taxes damage […]
It seems to me that any human would appreciate the opportunity to ‘be the best he or she can be’. Of course, in this world conditions to afford this opportunity are somewhat limited to say the least. Where education is provided it is predominately controlled by government. […]

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men […]

Aggression must also have a price.
The Ukraine is one of those places that conventional education encourages the West to ignore. As taught, history and politics can write off a region because it is tagged as “confusing”. All nations are complicated; therefore, that […]
The tiny nation of Israel is beset by many challenges, some of them unique in kind among the countries of the world. The challenges are well-known to interested parties and a brief summary of the main ones will be assembled below. But here I wish to focus primarily on a crisis that apparently concerns only […]
The major news media, with the exception of Fox News, has been deafeningly quiet about the federal government’s thwarted raid last week on a Nevada rancher. Heavily-armed agents from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) descended upon Cliven Bundy’s ranch, seizing 389 of his 900 cattle. The […]
Good news: the U.S. Department of Agriculture has published research indicating that there are lots of un-filled jobs and career opportunities in the farming industry. Bad news: the Obama Administration has been cannibalizing the nation’s farmers for the bigger part of the last six years. First the […]
The word sacrifice when used by a liberal is always applied as an expectation for others, while conservatives use it individually.
The liberals/progressives/Democrats make every effort to enact laws to take more and more tax money from successful Americans to redistribute to their perpetually needy constituents. The […]
For over two hundred and thirty years the American Republic has weathered wars, epidemics, hostile neighbors, worldwide conflicts, economic disasters, internal struggles, and competing ideologies.
