Jonathan Keiler’s interesting piece in the American Thinker on The Collapse of Arab Nationalism is misnamed. It is not that I disagree with most of Mr. Keiler’s assertions, but that the central premise of the title is that Arab Nationalism exists at all. It doesn’t, except for a […]
Having debated leftist veterans of the United States Armed Forces, one detail of their ethos is nauseatingly clear: if they served during wartime, they were entitled by proxy to be considered exceptional American citizens. Most overwhelmingly are, and thank God for that. But just because one served his country during Vietnam where scores […]
Hate Speech Hypocrisy: Free Speech for Me – But Not for Thee
You just have to love this.
According to a report, which has been disputed, the Canadian Government intends to use hate crime laws against advocates of boycotting Israel. (Whether or not this particular report is […]
America is a country of immigrants, but that immigration historically occurred within an enforced national policy on immigration. The arrival of immigrants to America and the legal enforcement of a national immigration policy traditionally went hand in hand.
Currently, there is a great divide on the immigration […]
Every American knows this nation was built by immigrants therefore, correctly, there is a huge sympathy for immigrants. We are a hospitable nation. At the same time we need to remember immigrants must be assimilated into this unique nation or the United States will cease to be a […]
I wrote this little essay to help me clear up my own bewilderment about racial issues. I hope it will also be useful to others
My brow is furrowed, and I have question marks colliding with each other in my brain. Oh, where to begin? Research is always […]
The United States of America has always been a land of opportunity. Unfortunately, that has meant both good and bad opportunity. We all know about the good opportunity because it is what the American Dream is based upon. The American Dream brings out the best in all of […]
We just ended our second war not too long ago. The Global War on Terror is officially over. I’m sure some Martini glasses clinked in DC when the bureaucrats were finally able to make the long awaited announcement, followed by pats on one another’s backs at black […]
Last week’s deadly Amtrak crash was absolutely horrendous.
For Democrats and their fellow Big Government advocates – it was a serious crisis they are trying desperately to not let go to waste.
They first tried to say the cause of the crash was a lack of government […]
Progressives are a Faithful lot. They live, and die, by a Creed. Welcome to the Church of State.
We saw the religiosity at work again recently in the United Kingdom. We saw Martyrdom.
When the voters toss out a Left-wing political party (two, actually) for having moved […]
It is an empirical fact – a metaphysical certitude. Government overreaches.
And the Barack Obama Administration has the longest, most overactive arms ever. With many, many, MANY power-grabbing hands.
Obama’s Legacy of Overreach
Obama Amnesty ‘Unprecedented’ Threat to Constitution
Obama Is Breaking The Law By […]
There are some academic conservative authors on politics and society who feel that discussions of the popular culture are beneath the dignity of their calling. But if their calling is to properly diagnose the condition of the society in which they live, and to identify all of […]
Conservatives frequently complain there are not enough of us in show business, but that may be because they are overlooking some of their top talent. Evan Sayet, a former mainstream stand-up comic and writer for comedians like Bill Maher, has hosted The Right to Laugh for years, […]
By now, it is no secret the global market for oil prices are seeing record low totals when compared to the past decade. But contrary to conventional wisdom, this is not at all good news, as global economies are destabilizing, the threats of state bankruptcy due to their heavy reliance upon the energy bubble to […]
We have our times of great joy and thankfulness that we spend with loved ones close to us. In these times of joy we prize what is important in our lives and for many it is the renewed bonding, friendship and love […]
Everyday I seem to read of horrific stories of young women and little girls brutally raped and slaughtered by illegal immigrants, and how others over time are found “Not Guilty” or their case is expunged from the legal record for matters of political expediency. It has grown into a double standard to […]
In a recent column for Townhall John Hawkins asks an important question. When Did America Turn Into Such A Nation Of Wimps? Yes, he probably knows several answers for this question, and so do many other intelligent people, but it seems proper to address it […]
Graph correlating increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) with global cooling.
I seem to find myself amused of late reading frequently-published commentaries by non-certified psychobabblers how “Climate Change skeptics” suffer from mental illness. Apparently, skepticism rather than abstaining from […]
The other day, I was watching a documentary program about the Church of Scientology. This program was not particularly flattering to Scientology. In fact, it was downright disparaging. Its conclusion, although the producers did not come out and actually say it, was that Scientology was nothing more than […]
American intelligence bought the myth from 1947 to 1951 that the new Israeli state might be pro-Soviet because of the large presence of the Socialist-Zionist political parties and the proven success in combat of the Hagana and Palmach, units with a large participation of leftwing kibbutz members. Taking […]
Lincoln Chafee, a former Republican senator from Rhode Island, announces his support for Obama […]
