Professor Hugh Hewitt, recently published a column for Townhall.com in which he cited a statement by former Ambassador Ryan Crocker, who represented the US in Afghanistan, in which he called the present ISIS/ISIL force wreaking havoc across Iraq as “evil incarnate.” There are those of us who understand this and have done so for a [...]
Now I shall endeavor to make that which is divine in me rise up to that which is divine in the universe.

In 2005 Gaza was unconditionally given to the Palestinians. They quickly handed it over to Hamas, made it a terror fortress, and smuggled in all the weapons of war that they could (which brought about a blockade). All efforts of peace since then have been met [...]
AND THIS CAMPAIGN-FUNDS HUSTLER WAS ALLEGEDLY A HARVARD LAW SCHOOL PROFESSOR?
Straight from the sober folks at the Wall Street Journal, here’s a rational explanation of why Barack Obama often feels compelled to mimic the language of the “bad-asses” of the hood:
The ongoing regulatory assault on the coal industry by the President continues. Major coal producer announces plans to lay off 1,100 West Virginia coal miners by mid-October.
Alpha Natural Resources Inc. (ANR) gave notice to coal workers in West Virginia last week that more than 5.5% of [...]
CAUTION … NEAR-TREASONOUS THOUGHTS AHEAD:
If you are somehow still a supporter of a separate Palestinian state … or support the far-leftist wing of the Democratic Party (or even America’s community-organizer-in chief, himself) … then please skip the speculative op-ed below:
FRIGHTENING: SEE HOW OBAMA’S TIES TO RADICAL ISLAM & SOCIALISM RUN DEEPER THAN YOU [...]
HAMAS SCHOOL IS SO MUCH FUN!
A SHOCKING VIDEO CLIP SOURCED FROM SEVERAL MIDDLE-EAST FORUMS ON AUG 4 2014:
GAZA PALESTINIANS HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THEIR SELFISH & PUBLICITY-HUNGRY HAMAS RULERS
So why won’t the incompetent & dithering fools in [...]
Regardless of how you feel about fixing the [...]
Professor Paul Krugman, in his New York Times blog, says my recent column, about him, is “funny and scary.” Last week’s column here inferred that Prof. Krugman is leaving Princeton in quiet disgrace. It drew pretty wide attention. It also drew over 150 comments. Many commentators merrily [...]
For people who think that it is obvious that the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama has been an incredible, dismal failure just is not viewing his record of successes from the viewpoint of his minority constituency. Obama has successfully performed the following;
He has established a taxation [...]
As we asked last week – who says bipartisanship is dead?
The allegedly “do-nothing” Republican-led House of Representatives has actually done a lot of good stuff – a lot of it bipartisan in nature.
“We’ve put together a helpful list of bipartisan [...]
Sometimes one is left wondering exactly why the political left hates Israel so much. After all, a large number of people who founded the state were on the left, themselves. That is why the Kibbutz settlements were so popular. People voluntarily organized into collectivist communities in some of which private property was not recognized. Additionally, [...]
In my previous column, I lay out exactly why the future of the Republican Party will be determined this November on the single issue of impeachment. In short, congressional Republicans have played dead for six years and unless they take a stand with the [...]
Republican lawmakers on Tuesday proposed a total revamping of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), accusing the agency of being a political group rather than a nonpartisan government collection agency, according to the House pf Representatives Oversight Committee’s latest report titled, “Making Sure Targeting Never Happens: Getting Politics [...]
In the past several weeks, the pervasive buzz around Washington has been about supposed Republican plans to impeach Barack Obama. Oddly, such talk comes almost entirely from the Democrats. Once again Beltway Republicans are reverting to their standard role of playing exclusively on defense, in hopes that [...]
“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”

I’m not quite ready, just yet, to put on my “The End is Nigh!” sandwich [...]
Astronomy and religion have quite separate tasks, one teaching how the heavens go, the other how to go to heaven.

Science and scientists weren’t always like they are today—tools of the Leviathan socialist and progressive governments from whom most [...]
The Left has quietly colonized the retreats that average Americans beat into the “safe zone” of sports. Sometimes its agenda leaks out.
“Higher Values” exploited to Justify Convenient Inaction.
While growing-up in the happy realm of the Soviet Union’s “outer empire”, one was harangued with the assertion that “western decadence” guarantees “final victory”. That trait was attributed to capitalism, which was condemned to death by its [...]
With the ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza I decided to re-publish this Open Letter which I wrote during one of the previous Israel/Gaza conflicts. Nothing much changes, it seems. But hopefully this time Israel will deal with the terror-mongers once and for all.
But it seems that John Kerry has either bought into the [...]
