Helter Skelter amid a perfect storm
By Doug Hagmann Full Story
“Look out… Helter Skelter… She’s coming down fast… Yes she is.”
Two police officers were executed in New York City by a lone gunman on Saturday who was reportedly exacting revenge for the deaths of two black men by police, one from Ferguson and the other from Staten Island. The bold execution of two uniformed officers sitting in a police car in broad daylight, in a city that has one of the most oppressive gun control laws in the nation, is destined to quickly become one of a series of seminal events in our nation’s history.
Harvard Capitulates to Anti-Semitism
By Mitch Wolfe Full Story
As a Harvard graduate, class of 1974, I am thoroughly disgusted by the Harvard Administration’s cowardly capitulation to the anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divestment, sanction) movement on campus.

By Warner Todd Huston Full Story
Al Sharpton is able to fly around the country advocating for violent protests and the murder of cops because many of the nation’s top corporations have fallen for his shakedown efforts and give him millions to fund his activities. It is time to pressure these corporations to stop finding this charlatan’s efforts.

Fracking is Fundamental
By Alan Caruba Full Story
“It is a sad day when a state chooses to listen to the fear, uncertainty, and doubts spread by anti-fossil fuel agitators rather than making a decision for economic strength that would benefit schools, communities, and many of its poorest citizens—especially when the vilified technology, hydraulic fracturing, has been used safely and successfully for more than 60 years and has brought prosperity to other formerly struggling regions.”
Falling Oil Prices and the Climate Change Agenda
By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story
The latest falling oil prices to $55.96 (West Texas Intermediate), dropping from a high of $105 per barrel in June 2014, as a result of increased domestic oil production from fracking, is making the price of $150 per barrel of renewables look ridiculously expensive, not counting the wasted government subsidies in bankrupt solar power companies. The green agenda, which has become a climate change industry, is very lucrative for wealthy climate alarmists and for the United Nations.
Love and respect for the Blue Line trump the laughter and clapping in Brooklyn

There’s, at least metaphorically speaking, a black ribbon on millions of front door Christmas wreaths today.
A Pack of Wolves
By Tabitha Korol Full Story
Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron responded to the terrorist attack in Sydney, Australia, in which two of more than 17 hostages were killed by an Islamic extremist. Referring to “lone wolf terrorists,” he said this was a reminder of danger that Britain faces. It would seem to me that we have had enough Lone Wolves to constitute a substantial wolf pack, and enough “extremists” to consider them “conventional.”

The Cold War Cuban Detritus
By Alan Caruba Full Story
When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 the Cold War that had existed between it and the U.S. since the end of World War Two came to an end, but there was ditritus, loose ends like Cuba and it has taken until now for an end to the diplomatic obstacles whose roots reach back to the Eisenhower administration.

Two NYPD Officers Assassinated!
By Nadra Enzi Full Story
Saturday’s assassination of two New York Police Department officers (whose killer, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, committed suicide immediately afterward ) is a shock which will hopefully shake some sense into protesters chanting, ”Hands Up! Don’t Shoot!” and ”I Can’t Breathe!” It’s rumored he was a fugitive and even posted on Instagram, ” They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” and ended his tirade with, “This May Be My Final Post ” before going on a murder spree!
A Day in Infamy - Barack Obama's Cuban Pact
By Obie Usategui Full Story
For the most part of the Cuban-American community residing in Miami, Florida, the day of Wednesday, December 17th, 2014, will—more likely than not—go down in their history books as a day in infamy, much the same as did December 7th, 1941, for all Americans. The former, when Barack Obama announced the U.S. restoring full relations with Cuba, including the opening of an embassy in the island—a bold move aimed at ending over 50 years of hostility between the two countries—the latter when the Royal Empire of Japan attacked the United States Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.
