As Congress betrays promises, let it break the one that matters
 By A. Dru Kristenev

Congress now hovers in the president's shadow as the second greatest perpetrator of broken promises to their constituents. Why then, shouldn't they renege on the one promise that would actually have impact against the wholesale destruction of our economy and defense?

Don’t be an April ‘Earth Month’ Fool
 By Alan Caruba

The annual calendar is filled with days and months designated for the purpose of calling attention to some event, personality, or cause. The U.S. celebrates the birthdays of Lincoln and Washington that fall close together. There’s Mother’s and Father’s Day, Labor Day and Veteran’s Day, Valentine’s, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas.

So many questions left unanswered by the RCMP Public Complaints Commission High River investigation
 By Dennis R. Young

Senior politicians stated (hoped) that the High River report released on February 12, 2015 by the RCMP Public Complaints Commission would close the file on the hundreds of doors being kicked in, 4,666 x 2 unwarranted entries and searches, seizures of hundreds of guns, and seizure and destruction of tons of ammunition, seizure of firearms magazines, bows, knives, etc, etc. The 122-page report didn't even come close to answering all the questions that High River residents asked at their town hall meeting on September 5, 2013.

‘Drag Show’ forced on Catholic students at University of San Diego
 By Judi McLeod

Something sacrosanct is being stolen from the University of San Diego: it’s Catholic identity replaced by open mockery of the God-made distinction between male and female.

Whoa: Gallup shows 26 percent of blacks now identify as conservative
 By Herman Cain

Yesterday I had lunch with a friend, Jim Clifton, who happens to be the CEO of the Gallup Organization. Whereas he gets his pulse of the public from the numerous and ongoing surveys they conduct, I get my pulse from callers to my radio show, people I meet while traveling and questions from audience members during keynote speeches.

The loud last gasp that should be heard around the world
 By Judi McLeod

If only the "loud last gasp" of the 7-month-old unborn baby ripped out of her mother's womb in Colorado last week would end for once and for all the fallacious argument that a human baby is only a fetus while still in her mother's womb.

Project Veritas, Progressive Academia, and Our National Security
 By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

James O'Keefe's Project Veritas has unveiled a new shocking video. Officials from Barry University in Florida, a private and Catholic institution founded in 1940, appear more than willing to approve the inception of a campus club that would raise money to support ISIS, the very terrorists who are killing indiscriminately Muslims, Christians, and gays in Iraq, taking over regions that were formerly freed by our American soldiers.

US Oil Production Largest In More Than 100 Years
 By Guest Column   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

2014 was a record-breaking year for US oil production. Spurred by the shale revolution, US crude output increased by a record 1.2m barrels a day to 8.7m b/d last year, according to a report published by the Energy Information Administration on Monday. That is the largest volume increase since 1900, the year the agency began keeping records.—Financial Times, 30 March 2015

Trying to Square the Circle: Can Saudi Arabia Form a United Sunni Front?
 By INSS   --World News

The visit by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Saudi Arabia in early March 2015 to meet with the new Saudi king, Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, prompted talk in both Riyadh and Ankara that the time has come to turn over a new leaf in Saudi-Turkey relations. Yet significantly, Erdogan is only one of several heads of state who came to Riyadh for meetings with the new king. His appearance followed a visit by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, and afterwards the king met with Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. There are also reports of contacts between Hamas and Saudi Arabia and an expected visit by Khaled Mashal to the kingdom. The series of meetings, held against the background of Iran’s rising regional stature, has led commentators to discuss anew Saudi attempts to create a Sunni alliance that will obstruct the growing regional influence of Iran and its satellites. Indeed, the meetings in Riyadh were the basis for the mobilization of support for the Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen.

Hillary surrogate Granholm on potential challenger O'Malley: 'He better watch out'

I sort of hate to horn in and do this on a day when Rob and his lovely wife are galavanting around on Rahm's mean streets. Ripping on Jennifer Granholm is sort of his territory, and no one does it better. But I did say I'd cover for him, and one never knows what duty will require of us.

The Old School Tie
 By Sarge   --American Politics

A couple of weeks ago, I was speaking with a friend who is a higher-up in the Louisiana Republican Party. I got on his case concerning the tactical; and political operation Republicans put forth to project conservative values and positions on national and foreign policy. I think I hurt his feelings because he said something to the tune of: “Sarge, you have to remember I’m at the state level of the Republican Party. I have nothing to do with the direction of the national party.”

President who couldn’t meet with NATO chief spends weekend golfing with oil bigwigs

President who couldn't meet with NATO chief spends weekend golfing with oil bigwigs

Honestly, I haven't written a lot about President Obama's golfing. It's not that I don't think it's excessive - I do - but of all the things you can find objectionable about this presidency, the golfing for me usually doesn't rise far above the level of an Internet meme. It's a symptom of leadership by a guy who is more interested in being a celebrity and enjoying the trappings of office than in actually leading. But it's not the big problem in and of itself.

The Article V Initiative: The way for the states to end Washington's spending

If you’re frustrated by the refusal of Congress to stop its fiscal insanity – and how could you not be? – it’s time to start realizing that the Constitution gives states and the people more power over Congress than most realize. And right now there is an effort called the Article V Initiative that would wield and deploy that power.

The geopolitics of oil go round and round
 By Marita Noon   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

Many complicated factors contribute to the global price of a barrel of oil, but two of the leading components are supply and risk—and both have the potential to escalate in the days ahead. The current region-wide sectarian war could easily bump oil prices up dramatically. And, the expected nuclear deal with Iran could drop them—dramatically.

Climate Poker: Most Governments Delay UN Climate Pledges
 By Guest Column   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

The United States will submit plans for slowing global warming to the United Nations early this week but most governments will miss an informal March 31 deadline, complicating work on a global climate deal due in December. Other emitters such as China, India, Russia, Brazil, Canada and Australia say they are waiting until closer to a Paris summit in December, meant to agree a global deal. Late submissions complicate the Paris summit because it will be far harder to judge late INDCs.—Alister Doyle and Valerie Volcovici, Reuters, 29 March 2015

Grover Norquist is No ‘Useful Idiot’
 By Frank Gaffney Jr.   --American Politics

In the course of an uncomfortable hour-long television interview with Grover Norquist yesterday, radio and TV talk show host Glenn Beck established a number of things. The most surprising is that the libertarian activist best known for his anti-tax campaigns would rather be perceived as what influence operators call a “useful idiot” – an individual unwittingly duped into helping hostile forces – than as an “agent of influence” for those forces. As Bill Clinton used to say, “That dawg won’t hunt.”
