    If Iran does take steps in the future to annihilate Israel, the leftist Jews who are criticizing Huckabee will never see it coming. And that, Mr. Obama is “sad.” As much as can be generalized, Jews have traditionally been liberal. This can be explained by the fact that Jews have been persecuted throughout history and they tend to identify with people and groups that are or appear to be marginalized. With the rise of the new anti-Semitism on the left under the guise of being anti-Israel but holding Israel to a different standard than other countries with serious human rights...

    Foote's narrative is such a breath of fresh air when compared to much of the politically motivated and agenda driven Civil War history of recent years. That alone would make it bad enough but, in addition, much of what is being written is not only poor history, it is poor literature. (Foote remains of the few adults in a room of Civil War historians populated by juveniles.)

Be patient, they say, the primaries will handle it, and then comes the election, don’t worry so much. And if you’re not in an early primary state, you have no effect anyway, so you’re better off saving your energy and just watching TV or going to a game.

This year a desperate regime hiked prices up to over a dollar. Meanwhile, Iranians pay about a tenth of what Americans do for electricity. Unlike Japan, Iran does not need nuclear power. It is already sitting on a mountain of gas and oil. Iran blew between $100 billion to $500 billion on its nuclear program. The Bushehr reactor alone cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $11 billion...

That is, it must have specific limits — one must be able to tell what it is, largely by ruling out what it is not, implicitly and explicitly. In the case of a country, there must be territorial boundaries. It also has have additional characteristics to distinguish it from other countries. That’s where America went wrong, and dead-ended. In trying to be all things to all people everywhere around the globe (not so much a place, necessarily, but an idea, of limitless opportunity and diversity), we...

    Is Mexico adopting an old British practice from the colonial era? Is Donald Trump correct when he says Mexico is sending some of its criminals into the United States mixed in with otherwise law abiding immigrants? During the colonial period Britain cut the cost of operating jails by sentencing some of its criminals to “penal transportation to” the North American colonies. After the American Revolution “transportation” meant being sent to Australia or New Zealand. The practice was particularly common with Irish and Scottish criminals and is mentioned in some Irish folk songs

By Zalin Grant John McCain received mixed reviews from fellow pilots when he arrived on the USS Oriskany in 1967, a month before he was shot down and captured. Cal Swanson, commander of fighter squadron VF-162, was enthusiastic. Swanson thought McCain proved he had the right stuff by getting himself assigned to the Oriskany, an aircraft carrier sailing off the coast of North Vietnam in the South China Sea. The Oriskany had seen more combat and suffered heavier casualties than any ship in the Vietnam War. McCain’s...

    President Bill Clinton was a supporter of fetal tissue research. A 1994 scholarly article entitled, “Issues of Property, Ethics and Consent in the Transplantation of Fetal Reproductive Tissue” authored by Heather J. Meeker gives some background: 1. The Federal Moratorium The federal government currently controls the extent of fetal tissue transplantation solely through its allocation of research funding. Federal law explicitly defers regulation of the use of fetal tissue to the states. However, in 1988, the Reagan administration injected its anti-abortion political philosophy into the field of science funding by taking a stand against fetal tissue implantation. In that year,...

    LONDON — In April 1945, code-breakers at Bletchley Park, England, intercepted the following telegram from Adolf Hitler, who was then under siege in his bunker in Berlin: “The Führer attaches importance to the President of the Red Cross, the Duke of Coburg, on no account falling into enemy hands.” Karina Urbach, a German historian, believes that whatever information Hitler shared with Carl Edward, the Duke of Coburg — who was a grandson of Queen Victoria, and a close blood relative to the current British monarchy — it was damning enough to warrant an assassination request. Coburg, though, would manage to...

    There has always been a rule – an overriding rule in the common law, in the criminal justice system and in the insurance industry – that society must not allow you to profit from a crime you committed. For example, if you file an insurance claim on your house, and it’s proven that you burned it down yourself, you get imprisoned for arson and the insurance company gets all the money back. Or if you file for the life insurance on your parent or spouse, and it’s proven that you murdered him or her for the insurance money, you get...

      Saturday July 11th 2015 marked the twentieth anniversary of the massacre of Bosnian Muslims by Bosnian Serbs in the town of Srebrenica.  The opportunity to indulge in an orgy of Serb-bashing by opportunist, self-serving politicians and the duplicitous media was simply too good to miss.  They were all-too-keen to continue propagating one of the biggest deceptions ever perpetrated on the West, a deception that did so much to advance Islamic jihad.  For Islam, Srebrenica is the gift that keeps on giving as you’ll now see. Let’s start with the then President of the United States, the Democrat Bill Clinton....

    “Ukraine is at War,” states Herman Pirchner, Jr., President of the American Foreign Policy Council in Washington, D.C. The AFPC is a much needed Conservative alternative to the Council on Foreign Relations, which although much larger, exhibits too many Globalist themes and aims while diminishing America’s presence on the world stage. President Pirchner explains in his just released treatise that sanctions by the Obama administration and the EU have done little to tamp down Vladimir Putin’s campaign of aggression known as “hybrid warfare.” (1) Russia’s persistence in its Ukraine offensive is deeply rooted in the bloody history of the Ukraine...

    What is the Obama administration working towards? There are signs of the past, and what his own words have spoken to as to the future of the United States. There is no moderation in the progressive cabal that runs the country. And with the help of traitorous Republicans, the left is working on the final few steps needed to destroy the cultural and societal basics that have served this country well. The judiciary, thanks to hard leftists and Justice John Roberts, has effectively gutted the Constitution on behalf of “social justice,” a socialist agenda leading to the destruction of the...

    Eliminating all things Southern Leftists and grievance groups now feel that the time is ripe to radically alter society. Their two top “justifications” for eliminating the existing society are the ‘legacy of slavery’ and Christian “convictions” that inhibit progress; progress as defined by Mr. Obama and the Left. The strategy the Left is using to eliminate aspects of American society is the same strategy that has been so successful in eliminating all things Southern. The Left’s tactical reasoning is, if a substantial segment of society can be made to believe that a replica of a Confederate flag can motivate a...

    The Houston Chronicle's GOPlifer Blog ^ | July 14, 2015 | Chris Ladd
    This has been a tough few weeks for Republicans. Donald Trump is emerging as a far more complex threat to the party’s future than it first appeared. It remains nearly impossible for him to win the nomination and he probably lacks the attention span for an independent run, but that’s cold comfort. Viability as a candidate is not what makes him dangerous. By loudly embracing the party’s nastiest impulses, Trump threatens to topple a domino that could force the GOP into an open split and a full rebranding. Though rare, there is a precedent for this phenomenon in the Republican...

    This 1938 Jackson Daily News article tells the story of how the Southern governors fought to level the playing field with the North when it came to railroad freight rates. The railroad commissions kept the freight rates very slanted towards the North. Canada, yes- Canada, enjoyed lower freight rates on railroads than did the South; so slanted weighted against the South were the rates. Thus a builder in New Orleans could get steel shipped more cheaply from Pittsburgh than he could from Birmingham....
