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.

Obama: Normalize Relations With Congress Before Cuba
 By Arthur Christopher Schaper Full Story

President Obama has announced his intentions to normalize relations with Communist Cuba, a nation with which the United States has maintained a no-travel embargo for decades. The Latin American island’s current leader, Raul Castro, even suggested that Obama lift restrictions through executive order. Nothing like one dictator egging on another to act on policy without the consent of the governed, or their representatives.

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

This article originally appeared in The American Thinker

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, 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. 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.

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.”
