  • Foreshadowings of Obama's Foreign Policy On Treaties and Alliances, in a World in Tumult

    Illinois Review ^ | July 9, 2014 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    On July 7, 1798, the Federalist administration of John Adams rescinded our treaties with France, sparking the Quasi-War with France, which began two days later, on July 9... and the Jeffersonians went ballistic. How DARE we break our treaties with the French, that great ally who helped us win our independence from England? Viewed on its own, without context, it does indeed sound outrageous, doesn’t it? What ingrates we would be, if we break our treaties with our greatest ally, so soon after they helped us so much. The Jeffersonians – known then as the Republicans, then later, the Democratic-Republicans,...

    The historical review of this exhortation, made by Barack Obama in 2012, will some day reflect that it captured the essence of what his intentions were and what we have come to witness in his second term as President. To the millions who ignored the debacle that was his first term, congratulations on enabling and exacting your revenge. It should be clear that Mr. Obama’s current preoccupation is finishing his “transformation” of this nation. In foreign affairs, his administration appears to be either befuddled or else apathetic to what has been happening. Iraq is falling apart and Afghanistan will follow....

    The media elites, Islamic supremacists and their apologists are outraged when we run our ads describing this very thing, but when Muslims salute and fly the Nazi flag, the silence is deafening. So they can fly the flag but we can’t run the ad. As dozens of Gaza rockets were launched into Israel on Sunday and Arabs rioted across the country, partially in response to the slaying of an Arab teen allegedly by Jewish extremists, a Nazi flag bearing a large black swastika was seen waving above the Palestinian village of Beit Ummar. The flag, which was clearly visible to...

    Last September, I noted how Deacon Scott Colley, the administrator (at least at the time if not still so) of the Facebook page for the North Quabbin Catholic Community, which includes several parishes in and around Athol, Massachusetts, banned me for taking issue with the applause which often breaks out during Holy Mass at Our Lady Immaculate Parish in Athol. See here. And back in 2011, I disagreed with Father Krzysztof Korcz when he blamed parents as being the sole cause of the lack of vocations and the exodus of young people from Catholic life.

    Every society acknowledges merit, even societies twisted by disease.

    Obama gave this bloodthirsty Libyan jihad murderer the full protection of a US citizen. Ahmed Abu Khatallah was mirandized and has since clamped down and shut up, which was Obama’s objective all along. In the continuing cover-up of the Benghazi jihad murderers and Obama’s feckless and reckless abandonment of our people, Obama’s main objective is to cover up what really happened that night on his watch. This Libyan devout jihadi was read his Miranda rights — which give him the right to remain silent to avoid self-incrimination, a U.S. official told CNN. “I have serious concerns that conducting a rushed...

    Obviously, the safety issue is very important. But, I don't know a single gun owner who doesn't know when and where he/she can safely fire their weapons. Why do it? 1. America’s revolution was an armed revolution -- and not a fireworks display -- that led to the freedom of this nation. People died. People gave 'their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.' 2. Fireworks are nice, pretty, a crowd pleaser. And, for a country that understands their past, present, and future freedom, fireworks are a good reminder. When our own Veterans Administration can't remember that "Independence Day" is...

    Harris V. Quinn had union leaders quaking in their boots since this decision could’ve struck down laws in 26 other states requiring other public-sector employees to pay union dues. One labor official said such a result would bring about "the possible final destruction of the American labor movement." The official added, "It would cause the death not only of public sector unions and what's left of private sector unions, but also the Democratic Party," suggesting that the demise of unions would make Democrats more reliant on Wall Street money.

During the battle, Molly carried water to the troops in the field. When her husband collapsed while manning one of the cannon, Molly took his place, continuing to swab and load the cannon through the remainder of the battle, despite having one British cannonball pass between her legs but doing nothing more than removing the bottom portion of her petticoats.

The number was increased from 13 to 15 stripes in 1795 (along with 15 stars) upon the admission of Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. Following the admission of five more states, the number of stripes was reduced back to 13 in 1820 to honor the original 13...

But one must remember that economics is a study of human behavior, generally about financial decisions but also the underlying reasons behind those decisions. Many have speculated that Rodger was simply a troubled kid, suffered from depression and/or was just pure evil. I personally do not share that view. I believe that there was a reason why Rodger became the person who he was because...

Organizations with the words “tea party” or “patriot” were singled out for harassment, such as requiring them to provide a list of donors, details about their internet postings on social networking websites, and information about their family members.When this was first reported by the media in May 2013, Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that had conducted these illegal activities, claimed that only low level employees had known about it, and that...

    Definitions of words and idioms that mean something else in Illinois; posted as a public service to the consumers of news. AIRPORT TRANSIT: The latest, quickest way to convey campaign contributions from the restaurant to City Hall.

    A rural Ontario road became the scene of an unusually expensive car crash after an amateurish slip-up caused a driver to speed his rented Ferrari into a guardrail. “That’s not good; that guy has to pay for that now,” a voice can be heard saying in a YouTube video capturing the June 8 crash. The car, a Ferrari F430 costing between $100,000 and $200,000, is owned by Exotic Car Tours, an Oakville, Ont.-based company offering hourly or daily rentals of high-performance sports cars. The company’s website says it costs $460.65, tax included, to rent the Ferrari F430 for an hour....

    Shortly after the US revealed that, in addition to aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships it was also sending a few hundred "special forces" on the ground in Iraq, contrary to what Obama had stated previously, Washington made quite clear it wants Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to embrace Sunni politicians as a condition of U.S. support to fight a lightning advance by forces from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Then something unexpected happened: Iraq's Shi'ite rulers defied Western calls on Tuesday to reach out to Sunnis to defuse the uprising in the north of the country, declaring...

  • How Politics Prevailed With Michigan's Minimum Wage Increase

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 6/16/2014 | Jack Spencer
    Republican control of Michigan’s government didn’t prevent a minimum wage increase and an increase in taxes may be coming to fix Michigan’s roads. That’s left many wondering whether the GOP got outmaneuvered or was painted into a corner to prevent a minimum wage ballot initiative that would have been worse. It was both, combined with plenty of politics, wrote Joseph Lehman, president of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, and Michael LaFaive, director of fiscal policy at the Center, in a recent Wall Street Journal column: Careful economic analysis did not lead the Michigan GOP to hike the minimum wage....

    One of the more famous of the early battle of the Revolutionary War took place on this day in 1775 when the Colonial Army faced the British at the battle of Bunker Hill. Although it was a British victory in the end, the American colonists inflicted much heavier casualties on the British than they suffered, and proved to the British they could - and would - stand up against the British army. Today's flag is known as the Bunker Hill flag.

    In only a scene from a bad movie, The Pentagon has now stated that the violent ISIS Sunni guerilla insurgency that is destroying Iraq-have captured American made, advanced Stinger Missiles from abandoned U.S. military bases. President Obama hastily withdrew U.S. forces from Iraq in a move even former UK prime minister Tony Blair is now blasting. The missiles, ‘most likely captured in overrun abandoned military bases’, have the capability to shoot down military aircraft, defeat chaff counter measures, and can easily take down a passenger jetliner. Maj. Gen. Bob Scales (ret.) tells Fox News it may be as many as...

    The following is mostly satire. Hillary Clinton, the Prince Charles of American politics (in more ways than one), has a new book out that she’s busy promoting. It’s called “Hard Choices.” She said, for example, her most difficult choice on the night of the Benghazi consulate attack was whether to have scotch, vodka or gin. In one interview, Hillary said that when she and Bill left the White House they were “flat broke.” She admitted to one interviewer that, "all the silverware we took from the White House were practically worthless". To escape their positively Dickensian condition, Hillary tried her...
