Thanks to PC western leaders, it’s Happy Hunting for the Terrorists
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

Forced Alzheimer’s tests at Medicare paid ‘wellness visits’
 By Dr. Laurie Roth Full Story

Constitutional attorney and head of the United States Justice Foundation, Michael Connelly told me the unbelievable this week. His fiancée, without any symptoms or presented concerns, was forced to take an Alzheimer’s test at an annual ‘wellness’ visit she had gone to.  She was also asked whether she owned guns.  Last I checked none of us could be forced to take an Alzheimer’s test, especially if we have no symptoms, but not now.

Obama, Castro and the Pope
 By Elvira Fernandez Hasty Full Story

Growing up as a child of conservative parents in a Catholic environment, today, after 53 years living in the USA, I find a new world that is upside down.  When Fidel Castro came to Cuba, soon after there were rumors of the government takeover of private schools.  I was sent as a young teen to the USA via the Pedro Pan program to live with cousins of my mother in Tampa, Florida.  It was to be a temporary situation, just until the government in Cuba changed to a democracy.  After all these years, Cuba is still a communist country but it is the USA that has changed.

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.

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.

The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 signaled that it was no longer the feared power it had been.
