Poverty and Snow Storms

on May 21, 2014, 7:25 AM / in Opinion

Written by  Thomas Sowell Many years ago, in upstate New York, there was a lady who was caught in a fierce snow storm that produced conditions called a “whiteout.” That’s when the snow is falling so thick and fast that all you can see in any direction is just sheer white. This lady wandered around in the storm, struggling to […]

America’s Budding Tyrants

on May 21, 2014, 7:23 AM / in Opinion

Written by  Walter E. Williams From the Nazis to the Stalinists, tyrants have always started out supporting free speech, and why is easy to understand. Speech is vital for the realization of their goals of command, control and confiscation. Basic to their agenda are the tools of indoctrination, propagandizing, proselytization. Once they gain power, as leftists have at many universities, […]

PART 1 By Kelleigh Nelson “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the […]

Written by Allen West If you really want to know how Democrats, i.e. liberal progressives, feel about our men and women who serve, just examine their actions and words. Several weeks ago, Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor insinuated his opponent, Tom Cotton, has a sense of “entitlement” because he served in the military. The death of two former US Navy SEALs […]

‘If You Have a Choice Between Going to a Dumpster or to a VA Hospital, Head for the Dumpster Every Time’

on May 19, 2014, 6:46 AM / in Opinion

by COLONEL KENNETH ALLARD (US ARMY, RET.) Brutally honest and politically incorrect, this unofficial advice was given just before I retired from the US Army. My 30-year career was challenging but consisted mostly of garrison assignments typical of the Cold War. My retirement health challenges were smoothly handled by Tricare, the public-private health-care partnership used by most military retirees. All […]

The Looming Doctor Shortage — And How To Fix It

on May 16, 2014, 6:59 AM / in Opinion

By  Mark Green, State Senator, Tennessee A few years ago, several publicly traded HMOs began restricting doctors to an average seven-minute “encounter” with each patient. Seven-minute health care might be cost efficient, but it is a terrible way to practice medicine — and a new study by Northwestern University’s Kellogg School indicates that unless we act quickly, an existing doctor shortage […]

A Left-Right Convergence?

on May 16, 2014, 6:12 AM / in Opinion

Last summer, in this capital of gridlock, a miracle occurred. The American people rose as one and told the government of the United States not to drag us into another Middle East war in Syria. Barack Obama was ready to launch air and missile strikes when a national uproar forced him to go to Congress for authorization. Congress seemed receptive […]

Blame Barack Obama’s aggressive environmental agenda for the land-use fights that have broken out all over the West. The federal government has changed its polices in the last few months, passing over local governments and remaining stubborn on environmental policies. At least two new faces in the administration, both less than six months old, may have something to do with […]

A Perfect Storm for an End Run on Liberty “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel.” Patrick Henry (1778) We’re nearing the hot season in the Northern Hemisphere and, predictably, that means the Left’s alarmist “global warming” rhetoric is heating up. Never mind that most weather forecasts beyond 72 hours are largely speculative; […]

Hillary, Run or Not

on May 15, 2014, 6:47 AM / in Opinion

The Weekly Standard I suspect that no one–possibly even Hillary herself–has any idea whether or not she’s actually going to run for president. For the moment, all that she likely knows is that it’s in her best interest to at least act like she’s going to run. (Also, as Mickey Kaus points out, this is kind of what Clintons do.) […]

By Servando Gonzalez In a 1964 speech Ronald Reagan told his audience, “If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.” It seems that Reagan believed that the threat to our freedoms could only come from abroad, from the evil empire, the Soviet Union. Unfortunately, he was wrong. America’s worst enemies […]
