Naomi Wolf Cries Fascism

One of my pet peeves with the Left is the tendency, almost by default, to liken the Bush Administration to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. It is a significant reason I could no longer bring myself to associate with the Left.

Question: Did the Resolution Condemning Turkey Create a Constitutional Crisis

Recently, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, chaired by US Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA), passed a resolution that recognized the killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks in 1915 as genocide. While the circumstances surrounding the slaughter are disputed, the killings did occur. The larger questions this action presents could very well be as disturbing as the killings themselves. What was there to gain by issuing this non-binding resolution at this moment in time? And, did the issuance of the non-binding resolution usurp the Executive Branch’s authority to establish foreign policy?

Fake Male Syndrome is on the way out

There’s good news within the popular and consumer culture.  “Metrosexual” is out “menergy” is in. For those who aren’t familiar with the term “metrosexual” it applies to testosterone challenged, narcissistic, heterosexual males whose primary focus is on their physical appearance.

Evil

Man has long asked how a loving God could allow evil to exist in the world.  It’s an age-old philosophical question that can cause those who want faith to doubt and those who want to doubt to mock faith.  A Christian’s answer to this question is “free will,” a concept critics may regard as something reduced to a convenient cliche.  The truth is, though, that this is a most fascinating subject to inquisitive minds.

Republicans NOT Worried About ‘08

Even though every national poll shows Hillary Clinton running away with the 2008 Presidential election, Al Gore is busy racking up award after award, becoming more of an international leftist icon than ever before, and RNC front-runner Rudy Giuliani has peaked at only 32 percent support from Republican voters, Republicans still seem disinterested in the 2008 election.

A biting assessment of socialized medicine

Historian Will Durant wrote that first century Romans had access to dentistry, including “gold teeth, wired teeth, false teeth, bridgework, and plates.”  Many 21st century Englishmen probably wish they had it so good.

Vote to Kill ‘Fairness Doctrine’ Forever Could Come up Today

In an effort to kill it forever, Representative Mike Pence (R-Ind.) is attempting to force a vote on the floor of the House today over the future of the so-called “Fairness Doctrine.” Pence already secured passage of the “Free Flow of Information Act” to protect the press and is now launching an effort to nix the ability of the executive branch from re-instituting the woefully unfair “Fairness Doctrine,” a relic from the 1980s that deserves to remain dead and buried.

The Keyes to Reno

Ambassador Alan Keyes addressed several hundred attendees of the Conservative Leadership Conference being held in Reno, Nevada on Friday night, October 12th. Ostensibly, he was there to explain why he was running for president of the United States but it soon became obvious that he was there far more for a cause separate from a simple run for the White House. Ambassador Keyes was there no less to rejuvenate the Republic and if mere passion could turn back the tide of anti-Constitutionalism, Alan Keyes would be the dynamo powering that effort.

Death of a Messenger

Don’t kill the messenger! You’ve heard that saying before and it has as much relevance today as in the past. Ages ago before the wondrous technologies for long distance communication were available; the means of sending messages between individuals over great distances fell to the responsibility of the humble messenger.

The Old Man and the Law of the Sea Treaty

It’s always fascinating to watch tenured faculty members leaving their ivory cocoons where they lecture to impressionable teenagers and 20-somethings to come face-to-face with skeptical middle-aged men. Such an encounter occurred last week in one of the few hearings the U. S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee deigned to hold on the Law of the Sea Treaty, the U.N.-generated pact that many fear would cede control of the oceans to that international body.
