US Jacks Up Exit Fee For Those Renouncing Citizenship
 By Alan Joel Full Story
US Jacks Up Exit Fee For Those Renouncing Citizenship

Just like the recent rise of business inversions — moving business HQ abroad — the United States has seen an uptick (up 221%) in Americans renouncing their citizenship. The elephant in the room in both these cases is taxes: both high taxes and burdensome tax compliance in foreign jurisdictions.



SOCOM Change of Command
 By Jim ONeill Full Story

On December 4, 1783, at Fraunces Tavern in New York City, General Washington bade farewell to his officers.  His words still convey the emotionalism of the change of command: “With a heart full of love and gratitude, I now take leave of you.  I most devoutly wish that your later days may be as prosperous and happy as your former ones have been glorious and honorable.”


Mary Landrieu and Her House of Cards
 By Jeff Crouere Full Story

This election has been most difficult for U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) with one mistake after another taking her off message. First it was discovered that she was charging taxpayers for at least four campaign flights. Her embarrassing mistakes were not something Louisiana voters should expect from a Senator with so much experience. Mary Landrieu has been in political office since 1979 and has served in the U.S. Senate since 1997. It is inexcusable for Landrieu not to know that taxpayers should not be charged for campaign air travel.


Putin Storms Ukraine

Putin Storms Ukraine

Yesterday, Ukrainian President Petro O. Poroshenko declared that Russia had invaded his nation. Col. Andriy Lysenko, spokesman for the Ukrainian military, confirmed that two armored columns of Russian forces, replete with tanks and armored fighting vehicles, captured the town of Novoazovsk on the Sea of Azov near the Russian border. Ukrainian troops were forced to retreat in the face of superior fighting power that included Grad missiles launched from Russian territory. “Our border servicemen and guardsmen retreated as they did not have heavy equipment,” Lysenko said in a statement.

The deadly combination of Obama and the UN will indenture civil society

With Barack Obama now firmly in place as their ex officio leader, the United Nations pooh-bahs have come up with a surefire way to stick it to the taxpayers of the world, while feathering their nests for all time.




Liberal failures and the real lessons of Ferguson
 By Tom DeLay Full Story

Washington Times

Clearly, something tragic happened during the confrontation on the street that day that left a young man dead and a community in chaos. Certainly, our hearts go out to the family and we can all hope that the investigation into what happened will be swift, thorough and fair to all parties.

Why Worry When You Can Pray

I am often asked, “How can you stay focused so intently upon the situations and circumstances surrounding America’s current condition of managed decline without succumbing to the mind-chilling depression it warrants?”


Palestine--Unearthing Past Remains Key To Resolving Future
 By David Singer Full Story

The cease fire agreement ending hostilities in the Fifty Day War between Israel and Hamas marks yet another milestone attesting to the failure of Jews and Arabs to peacefully resolve their claims to sovereignty and self-determination in the territory once called “Palestine”.


Obama: 'We don't have a strategy yet' for defeating ISIS
 By Dan Calabrese Full Story

Why would you get all hot and bothered to develop a strategy for defeating the JV team? Come on, y’all. It’s annoying to the president when “folks are getting a little further ahead of what we’re at than we currently are”


Toronto cancels permit for 15th annual Jesus parade
 By Arthur Weinreb Full Story
Jesus in the City Parade organizers Charles McVety and Ayanna Solomon  (Photo:Toronto Sun)

Update: After meeting with Rob Ford and the bureaucrats, the parade is back on on a different route.

With less than a month to go before the parade expected to draw thousands of participants, Toronto bureaucrats told the organizers of the annual event that it could not be held. Although excuses were given, there is no other logical explanation other than the cancellation of the event, held without incident for the past 14 years, was nothing more than Christian-bashing.


The Agricultural Resource Management Plan in Virginia
 By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story

The Agricultural Resource Management Plan in Virginia, Environmentally-driven encroachment: Regulating farming, compliance with environmentalist demands, control and tracking of the food supply, water supply, land use

My late father-in-law was a successful farmer and cooperative extension agent with 40 year’s experience who advised farmers in his county on crop management, land and water use, fertilizers, soil analysis, pests, and plant and animal disease.

Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev's sister arrested for making bomb threat

Yesterday, in New York, the sister of Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev was arrested for allegedly threatening to blow someone up in what appears to be some kind of weird love triangle situation. You will, of course, remember the Tsarnaevs as the infamous terrorist duo behind the Boston Marathon bombing, which took place back in April of 2013.


America, Our Debt-Ridden Nation
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

Let’s look at just some of the latest news about the U.S. economy:

# According to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of Fiscal Services, the federal government paid $2,007,358,200,000—over $2 trillion—in benefits and entitlements in the 2013 fiscal year, October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013. Most of the benefits, 69.7% came from non-means tested government programs that provide them to recipients who qualify regardless of income. That would include Medicare, Social Security, unemployment compensation, veteran’s compensation, and railroad retirement, to name a few.


Obama takes over from Maurice Strong as global warming/climate change guru

Obama takes over from Maurice Strong as global warming/climate change guru

In one of the most significant transitions of our lifetime, a mantle was passed today, yet most of humanity remains blissfully unaware of it.

It couldn’t be worse because just as the late and lamented author Henry Lamb predicted back in 1997, aging, health-hampered Global Warming/Climate Change Godfather Maurice Strong has been replaced by Barack Obama.


Sorry, Race Baiters; White America is simply Not Buying it Anymore. We've Spent our Guilt and Moved on
 By Mike Jensen Full Story
Sorry Race Baiters; White America is simply Not Buying it Anymore.  We've Spent our Guilt and Moved on

In 1984, I lived in North Philadelphia.  At that time (I have not been back for several years, so I can’t speak of the area’s current status), the area was almost entirely populated by black and Hispanic residents.  I’m white, by the way, and there were literally weeks that went by when I didn’t see another white person in my neighborhood.


ISIS Mission Impossible: Catching Obama’s attention
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

ISIS Mission Impossible: Catching Obama’s attention

The digital jihadists who came up with a new social networks campaign in a desperate attempt “to ratchet up pressure on U.S. President Barack Obama”, are headed in the same direction Mrs. Barack Obama ended up in when she tried the same thing on ISIS Boko Haram pals with her epic fail #BringBackOurGirls hashtag: Nowhere.


Understanding the ISIS threat
 By Doug Hagmann Full Story

Understanding the ISIS threat

The current threats posed by ISIS, or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, to world stability in general and to the U.S. specifically are very real and extremely dangerous. However, the origins of the group and hence the threats are not to be believed “as advertised.” We are being subjected to more lies from the White House to Foggy Bottom, along with many elected leaders who know the real story but insist upon pushing a false narrative.


The Twitter Terrorism of ISIS
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

The Twitter Terrorism of ISIS

It is the trappings of Western society like the social media known as “Twitter” allowing fanatical terrorists to move with ease and freedom among the innocent and left-vulnerable-by-their-own-government masses.

Unmask radical terrorists  for the world

The governments of all Western countries should do the research, to come up with the full facial picture of one Abdullah al-Britani without the black mask,  and post it on the worldwide web for all to see.
