Why another book on Israel? I asked myself this question for a long time before deciding […]
RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE IN THE NAME OF RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE
Kudos to the defenders of religious freedom at graduation ceremonies at Brandies and Stanford University.
Nice to know that, in the enlightened Obama era, the Hamas hate […]
POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL
Well fancy that!
Traversing across the nation, in frenzied effort to promote her new memoir, “Hard Times”, Hillary Clinton has been unleashing little white lies faster than a used car salesman, in […]
Rush wrote a brilliant children’s book. It is about our Brave Pilgrims. Limbaugh appears to be hated by the left but almost anything he touches usually is quite successful. If you listen to Rush on the radio around Thanksgiving the story about the pilgrims always […]
Richard Adams (TheGuardian‘s ‘education editor’) sort of gives the game away when he says that the “Trojan horse affair” has “race” as part of its “Birmingham-sized bundle”. (In his article: ‘Is the Trojan horse row just a witch hunt triggered by a hoax?’) Apart from the fact […]
We are free traders. We want maximum exchange – with minimum government interference.
Markets always work better the freer they are. Free from all but the barest necessity laws and regulations, and the least taxes possible – up to and including none at all….
Aside from attacks on the Second Amendment, there is a certain theme that’s now repeated after every massacre committed by an unhinged individual: that most all mass killers are white. After the recent Elliot Rodger murders, for instance, Michael Moore said that he no longer had “anything […]
Ah, nostalgia! Merriam-Webster online defines it as, ”pleasure and sadness that is caused by remembering something from the past and wishing that you could experience it again.” And so it was that I experienced an acute pang of pleasant wistfulness as I watched Hillary Clinton’s hair-tossing attempts […]
“Again we are all sprung from a heavenly seed, all have that same Father…”
~ Lucretius, On the Nature of Things, Book II
If thou art pained by any external thing, it is not this that disturbs thee, but thy own judgment about it. And […]
The Tea Party is sweeping America. […]
The following is a transcript of a talk given at the Maryland Center-Right Group on June 12, 2014
I’ll begin with a few words about America, its historical ideals, which, of course, conservatives treasure and seek to preserve; and then I’ll discuss where Israel fits into the […]
To understand the compelling appeal of Dave Brat’s message in his primary campaign against Eric Cantor, we need to go back to the founding of America as a nation.
When Thomas Jefferson first saw the Constitution of the United States he was said to have been utterly dismayed. But it was not […]
Rand Paul has bungled the immigration issue again. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time.
My hunch about Rand has always been that he believes very much like his father.* but he is playing a political game because he wants to be President. But unlike some, I don’t […]
MORE BRAVE (RCMP) POLICE HEROES MOURNED IN CANADA:
FALLEN MONCTON RCMP OFFICER’S POLICE DOG, DANNY, BREAKS THE HEARTS OF CANADIANS AS HE WHIMPERS AT FUNERAL
ENOUGH TO BREAK YOUR HEART
MY OWN RESPONSE
Of course, my sympathy goes out to the family, friends and colleagues of these unjustly “assassinated” RCMP police heroes, in Canada’s […]
Something remarkable is taking place in our mother country. Late last month, a third party on the right overtook both major political parties in a national election, as significantly more people in England voted for the right over the left. The UK Independence Party (UKIP) […]
For the last several years American political analysts have been politely arguing about exactly what was going on in the Oval Office. Was Barack Obama ignorant, or misguided, or simply foolish in his conduct? After all, his foreign policy actions looked as if he was completely out of touch with the reality of the […]
We’ve seen it in too many sectors of the economy to possibly mention – both domestically and internationally. The greater the government involvement in an economic sector – the greater the ensuing economic damage. To that sector – and the broader economy.
Every additional upward ratchet […]
And a happy “Gitmo Sell-Out, By America’s Most Inept President In History, Day” to all readers.
This morning I’d like to put on my investor adviser hat (https://twitter.com/MurraySoupcoff) and talk about what is probably the second most interesting topic after Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Saturday night suggestion that Barack Obama should be IMPEACHED (http://beforeitsnews.com/obama/2014/05/judge-jeanine-unleashed-impeach-obama-2463070.html)
Now there’s […]
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 […]
