Recent ColumnsJohn Kerry admits: Iran deal isn’t in treaty form because it would never be ratified by Congress
By Robert Laurie --American Politics
If you’re looking for someone who will admit what the left thinks, but usually doesn’t say, John Kerry might be your new best friend. Last week, we saw him testify that his nuclear deal with Iran would most likely lead to the deaths of American citizens. It was a disgusting, and probably treasonous, moment. It was also just the beginning of Kerry’s revelations.
Hillary’s energy plan is like Obama’s Clean Power Plan on steroids
By Marita Noon --Global Warming-Energy-Environment
The Clinton campaign’s newly announced “ambitious renewable energy plans” move far beyond Obama’s highly criticized efforts that have increased costs and jeopardized reliability—but they appease environmental activists and wealthy donors. Obama’s policies push a goal of producing 20 percent of the nation’s electricity from renewables by 2030; hers is 33 percent by 2027. We are at 7 percent today.
The Locker Commission’s “All Inclusive” Defense Budget: Where is the Big Picture?
By INSS--Shmuel Even --World News
The June 2015 Locker Commission report is primarily a collection of recommendations pertaining to the defense budget, yet while each recommendation is worthy of careful consideration, it is difficult to accept them as a package. The commission’s recommendations are formulated as directives, and some lack the data and analysis necessary for weighing their relative merit.

Pakistan’s authorities appear to have found a solution to at least one of their problems in the international arena: Aasiya Noreen, or “Asia Bibi,” a 50-year-old Christian woman and mother of five who has been on death row for six years for allegedly insulting Muhammad.

Recent ColumnsBlack Skin Privilege: To Be Above the Law
By Matthew Vadum --American Politics
It is true that black Americans are not treated equally by the nation's police forces -- far too often they are treated better
than members of other races because police are quite properly terrified of being accused of race-based discrimination.
Dog Days, Garden Etiquette, Rose Scent
By Wes Porter --Life-Pets-Gardens-Food
The sultry summer dog days are well and truly here. CBC’s meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe was right when she predicted back in early May that from coast to coast, this summer would be ‘hot hot hot!’ Rather than water the garden with the sweat of your brow, it is time to take advantage of your previous labours, lay back and watch the sprinklers swish back and forth.
This is Your Nuremberg, Planned Parenthood
By Matt Barber --American Politics
Nazi monster Dr. Josef Mengele is known to have ordered the murder of over 400,000 Jews at Auschwitz from 1943 to 1945. Thousands more he kept alive and mercilessly tortured to death during experiments intended to create an Aryan super-race.
A Tour of Our Decadent Civilization
By Daniel Greenfield --American Politics
Civilizations normally go through three stages; Barbaric, Vigorous and Decadent.
It’s easy to find examples of barbaric and decadent civilizations. We can find all the barbaric civilizations to suit an entire faculty’s worth of anthropologists in the Middle East. And then back home we can see the decadent civilization that employs their kind to bemoan the West.
McConnell announces Tuesday vote to defund Planned Parenthood
By Herman Cain --American Politics
It’s starting to look like Mitch McConnell has done something right, although I realize sneaky majority leaders have ways of making it look that way when it’s not really true. Planned Parenthood has become so indefensible, McConnell appears to think he has no choice but to allow a Senate vote to defund it – which is scheduled for Tuesday.
Was There a Quid Pro Quo?
By Chuck Lehmann --American Politics
The definition of of “Quid Pro Quo” is: “a favor or advantage granted or expected in return for something of value”. Do any prominent people in our political system seem to be engaged in the practice of a “quid pro quo”? Does the name Clinton come to mind?
Well, if not, maybe it should. It seems that every time the Clintons got paid for a speech or a donation to the Clinton Foundation, something good happened to the donor (mostly financial). That smelled something like a “quid pro quo”, don’t you think?
Dem’s Desperately Digging for Dirt on the Donald – The Birther Revival?
By Rev. Michael Bresciani --American Politics
This writer would make the Donald my last choice in a field of sixteen candidates from the GOP primary, but if he is the last man standing after the primaries he would be my first choice for president.
The press tried to get Trump to retract remarks he made to no avail.
Fifty Shades of Grey . . . Garden
By Wes Porter --Life-Pets-Gardens-Food
Like a certain popular pornographic novel, monochrome gardens have had their detractors. Nevertheless, as recently as summer of 2011, Julia Hess, a senior horticulturist at the celebrated Missouri Botanical Gardens in St Louis created a sensational black-and-white display in the five acres of grounds surrounding the residence of the garden’s director. Whether she was inspired by the black-and-white themed artists’ ball so ably directed by Vincent Minnelli in An American in Paris, reprised with equal success a few years later in the screen version of My Fair Lady, Hess isn’t saying. What she has admitted is that, if ever she repeated such a planting, she would add more silver plants to the palette or, more prosaically, shades of grey.

Obama strikes again
By Caroline Glick --American Politics
Obama’s first hope was to reach a deal with his Iranian friends that would leave the Assad regime in place. But the Iranians blew him off.
Huckabee is Right: Iran Nuclear Deal Brings us Closer to Catastrophe of Holocaust Proportions
By Anne Bayefsky --American Politics
This article by Anne Bayefsky originally appeared on Breitbart News.
When former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee raised the specter of the Holocaust in his evaluation of President Obama’s Iran deal, he touched a raw nerve because Huckabee got it right: The Holocaust taught us that evil is not satiated after it consumes Jews. A deal that is catastrophic for Israel is also catastrophic for the United States.
