America under dictatorship
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

Just as Fidel Castro became Cuba’s dictator when he and his guerrillas triumphantly entered Havana on January 7, 1959, President Barack Obama became America’s dictator on Dec. 17, 2014.

Can We Send Alan Gross Back to Cuba?
 By Matthew Vadum Full Story

Why did President Obama engineer a prisoner swap with Communist Cuba involving Alan Gross, an American citizen who badmouthed his own country mere hours after he arrived back on U.S. soil?

Obama's 'Operation Choke Point'
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

Almost unbelievably, the Obama administration is involved in another scandalous abuse of power, one that has largely escaped the public’s attention. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee released a report December 8 detailing the abuses by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), operating under the auspices of a program known as Operation Choke Point. Run by the Departments of Justice and Treasury, Operation Choke Point was supposed to target illegal businesses and prevent them from obtaining access to the U.S. financial system. Yet damning emails unearthed by investigators reveal regulatory officials were motivated by personal animus toward certain businesses. “It’s appalling that our government is working around the law to vindictively attack businesses they find objectionable,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said in a press release.

Worrying About China
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

If there is one thing various experts and pundits like to do most it is to worry about all manner of speculative threats. I can recall when much of their focus was on the Soviet Union until 1991 when it collapsed along with the decline in the cost of oil. The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 signaled that it was no longer the feared power it had been.

Despite its invasion of Ukraine to annex the Crimea, the Russian Republic is in the same position its predecessor was because, once again, the price of a barrel of oil is falling. Turns out that the fracking technology that many environmentalists fear has also produced large increases in both oil and natural gas here in the U.S., that have created an oil glut that is driving its price down.

Make Ready for the Christ
 By Jim ONeill Full Story

Make ready for the Christ whose smile,
like lightning,
sets free the song of everlasting glory
that now sleeps, in your paper flesh,
like dynamite
—Thomas Merton (1916-1968) “The Victory” (from “A Man In The Divided Sea”)

You cannot have too much respect for yourself.  You cannot have too much confidence in yourself.  You cannot claim too much for yourself.  But remember that you must realize these things as being the expression of God in you, and not independent qualities of your ownYou must also accept them as being true for every other human being.

It's never about Islam
 By Klaus Rohrich Full Story

Don’t you just love it when our leaders maintain that Islamist extremism has nothing to do with Islam and the terrorist act du jour is just a deranged ‘lone wolf’ acting on his own? We see this on an almost weekly basis, as these so-called lone wolf killers target soldiers, cops, housewives and coffee shop patrons, indiscriminately slaughtering in the most savage and heinous ways possible.

The Light of the World
 By A. Dru Kristenev Full Story

If there was a ‘dark age’ in man’s past, the period of relative quiet between the writing of the last great biblical prophecies concerning Christ and the end of the age is probably the best candidate to retain the title, despite the fact that secular historians apply that appellation to the medieval period. In most translations of the Bible this interval of about 400 years, where the Jews awaited the messiah, lacks written accounts. There are, however, books that were penned during that time when Persia lost its empire to Alexander the Great, and then his divided conquests were swallowed up by Rome. Only a few of these books hold a place among Canon, whereas most have been allocated to a grouping of writings called Apocrypha. Among them are the chronicles of the Maccabean revolt against the Seleucid Empire, one of the remaining thirds of Alexander’s realm.

International Emissions Idiocy
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

Most of the people of the world have concluded that the decades of warnings about “global warming” and its successor, “climate change”, is just idiotic nonsense. Few believe that humans ever had or ever will have any role in what the weather will be tomorrow or a thousand years from now. They are right.

Political Journalism Endangers Our Survival
 By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story

Journalism in this country, if it ever was completely honest and objective, has become in-your-face political journalism, to be more specific, Democrat Party agenda progressive journalism. Dr. Savage called it “narrative journalism.”

It’s ‘The Messiah’ and not the Valet for which Obama is mistaken
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

It’s 20 years on, and malcontent Barack Obama is still spreading the same bull he liberally spread over the pages of his memoir, ‘Dreams from my Father’.

Taliban School Slaughter
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

Taliban School Slaughter, Islamic child sacrifice reaches grisly new low in Pakistan

The mind-numbing savagery of radical Islam plumbed new depths in Pakistan yesterday. Taliban terrorists shouting “Allahu akbar” attacked the Army Public School and Degree College in Peshawar, slaughtering 142 people, including 132 children between the ages of six and 16. Another 10 staff members, including the principal, were also murdered. “They didn’t take any hostages initially and started firing in the hall,” said Maj. Gen. Asim Bajwa, a military spokesman.
