  • No, Ted Cruz Doesn’t Want Federal Regulation of Home Schooling

    The Resurgent ^ | February 11, 2016 | Brian Sikma
    Contrary to what some bloggers (many of whom support Donald Trump’s presidential campaign) and the Internet rumor mill have been saying, Sen. Ted Cruz does not support federal regulation of home schooling.The source of the myth is Cruz’s co-sponsorship of S.306, a bill introduced during this session of Congress by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). Some form of the bill has been introduced since 2000, but the measure has never been controversial until presidential campaign politics intervened. What the measure does is expand who can use Coverdell education savings accounts by clarifying that for the purpose of Coverdell expenses only, the...
  • The Tech-Nuclear Option, Part II: Starve ISIS of Its Oxygen

    My original article, outlining how to defeat ISIS through an online assault, was met with a chorus of laughter. ( ) I suggested that in order to defeat ISIS we must first shut them down online. In essence, this would starve them of their oxygen. Donald Trump has also suggested that we need to "shut down the Internet." That too has been met with a great deal of ridicule and laughter. But what does that mean? Just this week, we've learned that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has a rule that restricts its agents from reviewing social media...

    I know. I know. "Trump is flawed" the critics say. "He is a clown." "He is a buffoon." "He's divorced...twice." "He has business bankruptcies." Yes all true. And Reagan was a failed B-movie actor who played second fiddle to a chimp. Heck, Reagan had a failed Vegas lounge act that closed in a week. Reagan was rejected by United Artists executives to PLAY the part of a president. Two years later he was Governor of California. Then he went onto become the man polls show is regarded as our greatest modern president. Could Donald Trump be "Reagan- Part Duex?" (just...

    The Libertarian Republic ^ | May 26, 2015 | Austin Petersen
    The mother of a four-year-old son, Heather Hironimus, tearfully signed an order allowing for the circumcision of her boy, so that she could be released from prison. The event has stirred a national debate about the necessity of circumcision, and the question of whether all children should be allowed the right to bodily integrity. Hironimus was imprisoned after she fled with her son, attempting to avoid the fulfillment of an agreement with the boys father that would see him circumcised. Shes now taken center stage on the issue, with anti-circumcision activists rallying to her cause, raising $50,000 in legal bills...
  • The History Rhymes Enough to Justify Taking Comparisons to 1936-1938 Seriously

    The Streetwise Professor ^ | March 7, 2014 | The Professor
    Historical analogies to current events can be illuminating, but dangerous. Even if strong similarities exist, difference do too, and therefore caution is required when using them. This is especially true with analogies to Naziism and Hitler. Argudendo ad Hitlerum is fraught with peril, and is used far too cavalierly. Hillary found out about the perils when she compared Putins incursion into Ukraine-and yes, Crimea is Ukraine-to Germanys actions in 1936-1938: the occupation of the Rhineland, the Anschluss, the taking of the Sudetenland, and the eventual seizure of the rest of Czechoslovakia. Her remarks unleashed a storm of criticism. Mark this...

Kucinichs request went via e-mail to the six people who have signed-on to help in his campaign, thus far. Kucinichs national outreach coordinator, Evan Moody said the overtly public nature of the appeal was intentional.

U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat, told reporters that she was making the first U.S. congressional visit to Venezuela since President Hugo Chavez's December re-election with the message: "I want an immediate repairing of the relations between the United States and Venezuela."

The question arises whether they could similarly effect changes in American history as well. As we have seen Russian sources claim that the U.S. Government has had access to he meta-group, for such especially sensitive projects as the assassination of Abu al Walid al-Hamadi. They claim the meta-group's involvement in a number of U.S.-sponsored regime changes in eastern Europe, from the overthrow of...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president. Her brothers, Hugh and Tony Rodham, say it's true. Friends...

    Posted By: Rob_Booth | Write the Editors | Permalink.. In today's Chronicle, Gebe Martinez mentions Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee's participation in the Democrats' objection to certifying the presidential election results. "The Senate voted 74-1 to uphold the election results, with Boxer casting the lone dissenting vote. The House voted 267-31. Jackson Lee and Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Dallas were the only two Texas Democrats to support the election challenge." He didn't mention this gem of a quote from Rep. Jackson Lee during the proceedings: "I came here as a slave, and I deserve to vote." For someone old enough...

    WASHIGTON, D.C. Billionaire investor, donor to radical causes and political activist George Soros, speaking at the last hurrah event of his whirlwind anti-Bush tour, told a luncheon audience at the National Press Club: Now that I am at the end of my tour, I am not reassured... The race is too close for comfort. I embarked on the tour because I was worried that the dramatic deterioration in Iraq did not produce the decisive lead for John Kerry I had confidently expected, Soros conceded. Asked what he will do if George W. Bush wins another term, Soros lamented, I...

    Kerry stops in Cannonsburg, PA while Teresa makes her first public appearance in awhile by attending the Labor Day parade in Pittsburgh. Kerry goes on to Racine, WV, where he receives a shotgun (but the AP and the AFP can't tell a shotgun from a rifle). Kerry then heads to Cleveland, where he shows he is one tough hombre, even though he knows how to bow. Democratic presidential nominee, Sen. John Kerry , D-Mass., waves to supporters while visiting a neighborhood in Cannonsburg, Pa., on Monday, Sept. 6, 2004. (AP Photo/Laura Rauch) U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Senator...

    I cannot believe my ears. I was just watching Hannity and Colmes and a Democratic pundit named MaryAnne Marsh just said that President Bush "Betrayed his country by not serving in Vietnam." It's nice to know that my "voluntary service" in the United States Air Force for four years, all of it during the Vietnam war, although none of it spent "in country", now allows my to wear the lastest badge of honor from the miserable democratic party. Evidently I betrayed my country. I am so happy that this twit has explained to me that I betrayed my country at...

    <p>This might be little bit hard, but I have to say what I feel, and it is just my feelings towards some things here. Ishmael ha, maybe somewhere down the road something got kind of f---k up, but when did Islam came to be? Who was before them? What tribe did Mohamed came from? What was his full life all about? Etc, etc... I am getting freaking tired of this Islam BS and bumble jumbo, don't preach to me about religion whose only goal is to conquer and destroy!</p>
