That was, in part, how former First Lady / U.S. Senator / Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that business owners with religious objections can refuse to pay for health insurance policies that cover contraception.
“I obviously disagree” [...]
As Palestinian terrorists rockets continue to rain down on Israel, targeting the Jewish population, President Barack Obama offered the help of the United States on Thursday “in negotiating a cease-fire to end escalating violence between Israel and Hamas.” But critics of the Obama administration believe [...]
Comes now to respectful international attention a volume entitled War and Gold: A 500-Year History of Empires, Adventures, and Debt by Member of Parliament Kwasi Kwarteng. This near-perfect volume appears with almost preternaturally perfect timing around the centenary of [...]
It was headlining AOL on Friday, a story about a woman stabbing a schoolteacher to death in front of a class of five and six-year-olds. The gruesome and bloody crime occurred in the southern French town of Albi; the victim was a 34-year-old mother of two.
Unanimous Supreme Court rulings are certainly noteworthy. When a case lines up every single Justice – appointed by Democrats and Republicans both – the decision must be unbelievably clear cut.
Nine-to-nothings don’t happen very often. The ever-overreaching Barack Obama Administration, however, is in historic fashion racking them [...]
In 2016, if America does not correct the imbalance imposed on this nation by a socialist President who has opened our national coffers to entitlement seekers and created a situation where over half of this nation is now on some from of entitlement or subsidy, has designated [...]
During the Sunday morning news shows, a number of Republicans and advocates for legal immigration called on The President Barack Obama to deport the children — and adults hiding among them – as they amass at the Texas border and that deportation should to take place immediately. [...]
Recently I read a post that stated something I have heard numerous times; “religious convictions have no place in influencing legislation in a secular society.” By the word “secular,” I can’t help wondering if they mean non-ecclesiastical or demonstrably irreligious. While our Founders certainly created a functional [...]
The pernicious effect of government warping markets is absolute – and the evidence is obvious and everywhere.
When 300+ million Americans (and when 8+ billion worldwide are able to) make their own decisions, markets constantly morph to accommodate those decisions – and the maximum amount [...]
There is only one reason for House Republicans to sue Obama over his many treasonous acts against this country, the legal citizens of this nation and our Constitution – to avoid taking any real constitutional action. It’s a blatant act of cowardice!
The only constitutional solution for [...]
Kirsten Powers shows up on Fox News quite often. She used to be a liberal commentator of sorts but she seemed to be leaning to the right. She even admitted she did not vote for Obama in 2012. Obviously she admired him in 2008. She looked a [...]
Texas officials on Thursday claimed that President Barack Obama and his administration are turning U.S. military installations into “‘refugee camps” instead of working to secure the U.S.-Mexico border as a human tsunami illegal alien children flood the nation’s immigration system. One U.S. congressman scolded President Barack Obama [...]
I recently encountered a piece of commentary entitled Moral Equivalence, Moral Idiocy by Bruce Thornton; an excellent item explaining exactly what is going on in the “Arab-Israeli dispute.” It reminds me, in some ways of a piece written by Israeli commentator Ephraim Kishon that I read in 1968 or thereabouts, in the wake of the [...]
Jihadism has declared war on all other systems, ways of life and cultures. Ignoring that excuses the momentary denial of the implications. There is a reason; confronting such threats contradicts PC-approved “solutions”.
News suppression is the preferred approach of our political elites who shun the [...]
Lynne Cheney has written what may be the most authoritative and comprehensive book ever on the life of Founding Father and president James Madison. It [...]
Last weekend there was a tragic fire (see initial news report) in Scottsdale, AZ at the home of a sub-standard breeder. While no one yet knows how many Papillons perished in the fire, reports have approximated anywhere between 10 and 20.On the day of the fire, Jason [...]
It’s just been made public that various leaders in the UK drew up plans to equip and train a force of up to 100,000 “rebels” to fight against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria. (That figure of 100,000 Syrian rebels is interesting: the Free Syrian Army only [...]
A few days ago, the news broke that Texas was being flooded with thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants, mostly children, from Central America. The numbers are so overwhelming for the state that they started busing the immigrants to Arizona and California.
We citizens sense that we are being lied to by those in authority. We can’t quite put our finger on it. We are right, though. Let me guide your finger to the spot.
The biggest lie that Big Government, Big Business, and Big Media are telling us [...]
Eighty years ago. The depths of the Great Depression. Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt blindly flailing around, throwing ever more government-centric “solutions” at the growing list of problems. Each new centrally-planned effort making matters worse – and the Depression last longer.
Remember, Ladies and Gentlemen, Hideki [...]
In the beginning of this nation, due to British rule, the idea of the United States was a whisper and a dream. The Puritans desire for religious and economic freedom is proclaimed in our Declaration with the terms, “… that all men are created equal, that they [...]
The gentleman’s guide to change
Dr. Ben Carson has very quickly climbed the ranks of prospective Republican presidential candidates thanks to some obvious strengths: he’s relatively young, eloquent, polite, passionate and generally conservative. Frustratingly for Republicans, Carson has repeatedly and publicly declined any offers to run [...]
Growing up during the 1960’s in the People’s Republic of Berzerkeley, I was, more often than desired, treated to statements criticizing “the establishment.” As I grew older I found opportunity to ask exactly what this “establishment” was, and found that the only answers I received were nebulous, blaming “the established order” or a bit more [...]
