The U.S. is Becoming a Weaker Nation

  The news that the U.S. Air Force, joined at long last by some of the Arab nations most threatened by the Islamic State (ISIS), began bombing their headquarters and military sites in Syria was long overdue, but welcome. It took time because Obama had originally dismissed ISIS as a threat. It no doubt took […]

More Misguided Spending Won’t Deter ISIS

Our famously detached president has recently decided to become very hands-on in the application of air power. Obama, like LBJ in Vietnam, is personally choosing the targets where he will employ U.S. aircraft. The first display of Air Force One might that we have the figures on was a $700,000 close-support effort in Denver for […]

  THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS IS ALMOST GONE. By: Al Cronkrite The culture of the United States of America is beginning to adjust to the new economic status brought on by the trade treaties and the world government legislation passed by our elected officials.

DIVIDED WE STAND: A TRADITIONAL MANIFESTO

  By: Selwyn Duke Conservatives are generally very nice people — who never saw a culture war they couldn’t lose. That is to say, we often hear cracks about how Barack Obama and his ilk may “evolve” on issues, but conservatives exhibit that tendency, too, and their evolution goes something like this: “Marriage is between […]

Goodbye Eric Holder

Goodbye Eric Holder

  In a nation where there is a scarcity of good news, hearing Eric Holder give a farewell speech upon his announcement that he will be leaving as the Attorney General was surely welcome in some circles. I was never a fan of his because he was in my opinion always more of a politician […]

Obama’s Ignorance

From time to time I hear President Obama described as “an evil genius”, but he is neither. He’s not evil. He’s something much worse. He is a fool who thinks he’s a genius. This is not about his intelligence. No one gets to be President of the United States without some degree of intelligence. One […]

NIH Makes Monkey’s Uncles Out of Taxpayers

| September 22, 2014

The National Institutes of Health has billions of tax dollars to give away each year in the form of research grants. I’m sure that senior bureaucrats have the really famous diseases and maladies already booked up. That means the newbies have to identify their own causes and studies to make sure that every last penny […]

Go Away. Hillary

Go Away. Hillary

 Other than earning her law degree, name one thing that Hillary Clinton has accomplished on her own. Her accomplishments—slim as they are—have been achieved on the coattails of either Bill Clinton or Barack Obama. Had she not been the First Lady, would anyone have ever heard of her in the context of high power political […]

Our Pathetic President

The first thing you need to keep in mind is that Syria and Iraq are now just lines on a map at this point. They don’t exist as national states because the former is locked in a civil war that will replace its dictator one way or the other and the latter’s alleged government is […]

Liberated Women and the Traditional Family

  My generation, born in the late 1930s and the 1940s, has witnessed a dramatic change in the role and the rights of women in America. A significant result of the women’s liberation movement is a change in the role of traditional marriage that was reported in early September. “If you count a generation as […]
