Climate issues we do need to address

- Aug 30, 2015

Reeling stock markets across the globe hammered savings, pension funds, innovation and growth. US stocks lost over $2 trillion in market value in eight days, before rallying somewhat, while the far smaller Shanghai Composite Index lost $1 trillion in four days of trading, the Wall Street Journal reports.

SOS to Pope Francis: It’s souls that need saving, not the environment

- Aug 30, 2015

In a surrealistic world the pope’s coming to America is somewhat like Cleopatra coming to Mark Antony.

Protocol and pomp and ceremony aside, why would Christ’s Vicar on Earth come to pay homage to a president who is unabashedly the world’s top champion of abortions, including partial birth abortions;  whose party refuses to defund Planned Parenthood whose organization sells body parts of aborted babies on the black market;  and whose presidency is driven by a soul-corroding hatred of the country he was elected to serve?

Jeb! asks George! for Help

- Aug 30, 2015

Jeb Bush has lost major campaign donors, according to Politico.

While mainstream newspapers continue to buoy his character and policies, hoping for another Bush-Clinton mix-up in 2016, the third Bush candidate for President is finding that he is indeed having to fight for the nomination, and despite his plainspoken views and honesty in debates, plus the large campaign cash at his disposal, no one is really interested in Jeb.

Trump vs. Ramos Bout

- Aug 30, 2015

You know what, I thought my frenzy point for irking with madness had just about reached its limits of confinement when I saw Barack Obama eagerly shaking the bloodied hands of Cuban dictators Fidel and Raul Castro – the entire charade followed by the idiot John Kerry’s ceremony raising the American flag at the just re-opened Cuban embassy in Havana, not much after the jackass [Kerry] had virtually given Iran a free pass to becoming a nuke state, while Iranians lolled to the chants of “death to America” -  Yes, I thought I just could not or would not let myself be dragged to such levels of derangement, to where my delusional political inanity, would impair my good judgment in realizing that none of it was really worth it – none whatsoever.  But, dammit, it happened again.  It happened again on Tuesday, August 25th, at the press conference held by republican presidential contender Donald Trump in Dubuque, Iowa, and his duel with Spanish broadcasting network Univision’s anchorman Jorge Ramos

UN Gun Control Body Supported By Obama Sets Up Veto-Proof Framework

- Aug 30, 2015

Thousands of people trying to enter countries both legally and illegally, spreading diseases

- Aug 30, 2015

Interesting article.  Noted lately that Liberia was created after the Civil War for black people that wanted to leave the United States.

The Cadillac Tax is a heap of junk

- Aug 30, 2015

I rarely agree with labor unions, and I look pretty skeptically at the arguments of health insurance companies too. They’re both pretty shameless about pursuing their own self-interests regardless of how it affects anyone else. But sometimes they’re right, and they’re right in the current push to see the ObamaCare Cadillac Tax repealed.

Liberalism Created the WDBJ Killer

- Aug 30, 2015

Barack Obama won’t be saying, “If I had a psycho son, he’d look like Vester Lee.” But he might as well. Because Vester Lee Flanagan II, the bigoted maniac who murdered the WDBJ reporter and cameraman Wednesday on live TV, was a philosophical offspring of the Left.

It’s well known now that Flanagan was a professional victim, nurturing grudges against all and sundry based on his “status” as a homosexual black man. He had an axe to grind with white women because they supposedly made racial statements to him, and against black men because they supposedly directed anti-homosexual remarks his way. And it didn’t seem as if he liked anyone very much.

Why the Supreme Court is not Supreme

- Aug 30, 2015

“Judicial activism occurs when judges write subjective policy preferences into the law rather than apply the law impartially according to its original meaning.”
– The Heritage Foundation

To vocal opponents of judicial activism, this comes as little surprise. The U.S. Supreme Court has suffered a major credibility blow in the wake of its politically motivated 5-4 Obergefell v. Hodges “gay marriage” opinion. In it, they presumed to do the impossible – both redefine the age-old institution of natural marriage and to give this fictional definition precedent over freedoms actually enumerated in the Bill of Rights. According to Rasmussen, only “36 percent of Likely U.S. Voters still think the high court is doing a good or excellent job.”

Lion kills safari guide in Zimbabwe park where Cecil lived

Israel and the United States: Time for a Parallel Agreement

- Aug 30, 2015

Long before the signing of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) between Iran and the P5+1, I called on the leaders of Israel and the United States to launch a constructive dialogue and work together to minimize the potential risks inherent in the JCPOA. The agreement signed between the P5+1 and Iran is very problematic for Israel, and is currently opposed by the majority of Americans and their representatives in Congress.

A Proposal for the Muslim Refugees Clamoring to Enter Europe

- Aug 30, 2015

Every night on a dozen or more West European television channels, (Americans, by and large are still unaware of this chaos because of the geographic separation of a continent), the news programs bring into people’s homes, heart wrenching pictures of tens of thousands of destitute refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and other Muslim majority regions in Africa, about 98% of whom are Muslims, clamoring to enter Europe. They are risking everything -  life and limb to flee from their Muslim homelands and leave what according to their religion (whether Sunni or Shia) is defined as the protected and preferential state of living in Muslim majority states regarded by their religion as necessary for them to practice their faith unmolested by the insidious, immoral and utterly corrupt Dar-al-Harb, defined as the communities of non-believers who have not accepted “subjugation”  which is the literal meaning of Islam. How can any of the multitude of imams and mullahs across the entire Muslim world accept such a state of affairs?

Hate and Anger are not mental Illnesses

- Aug 30, 2015

This week we have suffered additional senseless and tragic shootings of innocent people here in America.

This past Wednesday, Vester Flanagan II (aka:  Bryce Williams) executed two former co-workers from WDBJ-TV in Roanoke, VA.  Flanagan had a history of anger issues mostly stemming from his being both a black man and gay.  It appears his anger continued to grow over several years and between multiple jobs.  He had reached a point where common sayings or items and street names were viewed as racial attacks and taunts against him.  His hate grew right along with his anger and this week it reached a boiling point.
