The battle of ideologies currently raging in America produces an attack from the left on everything that can be gathered and apprehended in a basket labelled with the catch-all term “Capitalism,” — catch-all because what it refers to in today’s America can hardly be identified as Capitalism.

There has been much harrumphing and hand wringing about Rudy Giuliani’s comments about Barack Obama not loving this country. The NY Slimes, as usual, went right after Giuliani instead of even considering the content of Giuliani’s words: His remarks this week mostly drew derision and outrage, and seemed to further distance Mr. Giuliani from the… Read more »
For sixty four years, the world enjoyed some degree of stability, perhaps greater than at any previous period in history, with the United States performing the expensive, but indispensable role of “stabilizer.” There had been regional wars, and provincial atrocities often localized to sectarian disputes, but most of the world went about its business, criss-crossing… Read more »
Whatever the truth about Chris Kyle (and I suspect, like most, the real Chris Kyle was a complex person; and lived tall tales while fabricating others), he is an American hero. My understanding of the film is that it’s not meant to make a political statement. But I suppose everything under the sun is political… Read more »
Christmas. It’s not just for Christians, anymore. I recognize that Christmas is a Christian, religious holiday- I love that it is! That the “Christ” in “Christmas” belongs there, unmolested. But as a non-Christian who has grown up celebrating the rituals and trappings- Christmas tree, gift-giving and receiving, Christmas card writing, carols, etc.- I also regard… Read more »
President Obama is being applauded by his pandering members of the left’s publicity machine for poking a stick in the eye of the GOP and its likely 2016 Presidential candidates. The economic geniuses at the NYT pretend that there is suddenly a long line-up of American corporations running for their executive jets ardently anxious to unwrap the… Read more »

For 9 years, it’s been the critics who have been at liberty to shape the battle-space narrative on “torture” as it pertains to the CIA… Read more »
David Masciotra of Salon wrote a little rant, lecturing Americans to feel ingratitude toward those who serve, just in time for Veterans Day, entitled: You don’t protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracy “Childish”?! I considered some of his points; but he’s missing the point of why those who… Read more »
The President is too toxic for Democrats scrambling to raise support as we head into the midterms, so the hopeful statist campaigners look to visible alternatives from the White House, or other senior offices. Valerie Jarrett, Elizabeth Warren and Michelle Obama are considered less harmful in getting out the vote and in stimulating the disgruntled supporters to exercise their rights in the polling booths across the Nation.
Should we celebrate “Christopher Columbus Day” or “Indigenous People’s Day”? Which do you prefer and why? Part of me, as a child of the 70s indoctrinated to celebrate the Pilgrims and Columbus, clings to Columbus Day. My weak rationale for this is along the lines of this: In a 1988 presidential proclamation, Reagan commemorates Columbus… Read more »
