  • Israeli TV report shows air force gearing-up for Iran attack, says moment of truth is near

    The Times of Israel ^ | April 15, 2012 | Greg Tepper
    A major Israel TV station on Sunday night broadcast a detailed report on how Israel will go about attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities in the event that diplomacy and sanctions fail and Israel decides to carry out a military strike. The report, screened on the main evening news of Channel 10, was remarkable both in terms of the access granted to the reporter, who said he had spent weeks with the pilots and other personnel he interviewed, and in the fact that his assessments on a strike were cleared by the military censor. No order to strike is likely to be...

I direct anyone who doubts his talents to his delightful first novel, “Seeing Calvin Coolidge in a Dream, or any one of his “Straggler” columns in the books section of NR. Derb is also maddening, outrageous, cranky, and provocative. His latest provocation, in a webzine, lurches from the politically incorrect to the nasty and indefensible. We never would have published it, but the main reason that people noticed it is that it is by a National Review writer. Derb is effectively using our...

Here are some of the more frequently cited claims and the facts to counter them: Myth: Self-insurance is a seldom-used method of providing health insurance to employers, used mainly by church organizations to avoid having to pay for abortions or birth control.

In the ensuing conversation I learned some key things about why current intellectual and political discussion is such a wreck. The retired professor has read nothing I’ve written. He is on the left-wing politically, in the historic non-Communist sense, but his work has always been first-rate and untouched by any political slant. In addition, he has worked amicably with people of different views. And that’s why I...

    What is Truth? That question was put to a man of truth by Roman governor Pontius Pilate over two thousand years ago. That "man of truth" was, of course, Jesus Christ and evidently he recognized Pilate's question was more a philosophical one or didn't actually seek the truth Jesus spoke about so Jesus didn't give an answer. (John 18:38) That doesn't mean there is no answer, particularly as it pertains to Jesus' followers. King David identified the God of truth, "Thou hast redeemed me, O Jehovah, thou God of truth." (Ps. 31:5 , ASV) And Jesus said of himself, "I...

During his address he complained that Republicans try to take too much credit for his welfare reform legislation and for balancing the budget. The two parties can argue about who was behind welfare reform, but no one deserves credit for balancing the budget. The truth is the United States federal budget was not balanced in any of Bill Clinton’s eight years as President. Not once! The federal government has two types of debt public debt and intra-governmental debt.

    Halleleujah! Free Republic is back!! Whenever I'm unable to get online at Free Republic, I get worried, concerned that the forces of evil, malevolence have managed to somehow force Free Republic offline. By ordinary standards, my inability to link to FR was longer than usual. Hope everything is under control. I just want to say, Glad you're back!!! Long live Free Republic!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

    Over the past couple of months Rick Perry has been considering a run for POTUS. As of Saturday, August 13, he’s in with both feet. Since he’s been Governor of Texas for over ten years, folks from the other “56 states” are asking Texans what kind of governor he’s been and what we think. I decided that what I “think” isn’t good enough – I could be wrong. So, I decided to do some research on Perry’s record and form a more accurate, fact-based opinion on his qualifications instead of relying on my general perceptions. In the spirit of full...
  • The Love Of The Truth...I john

    For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. ( 3 John 3-4)Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That...

    I am the Way the Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father but by me.(John 14:6)We have been studying the threefold sign of eternal life, as taught by the Apostle John in His First Epistle. We have stressed that Eternal Life is a gift of God, it cannot be merited, it can only received freely by faith. But how does one know whether or not he has received the gift of eternal Life? After all, in our day as well as in John’s there were many teachers, and prophets who were redefining the knowledge of God, and...

    Rick Santelli: 'If it Wasn't for the Tea Party...We Would Have Been Rated BBB' By Noel Sheppard Created 08/08/2011 - 7:09pm For over 24 hours, Obama advisers, Democrat senators, and terminally stupid ideologues in the media have been blaming Standard and Poor's downgrade of America's debt on the Tea Party. On Monday, one of the only sane voices in the mainstream media stood up and said, "If it wasn't for the Tea Party, they would have passed the debt ceiling thumbs up, we would have been rated BBB" (video follows with transcript and commentary): JOE KERNEN, CNBC: Alright. You know,...
