  • Frightened by Trump, Inspired by Fidel

    The American Spectator ^ | 30 Nov, 2016 | GEORGE NEUMAYR
    The left allows itself any number of rhetorical excesses about Donald Trump. He is a “fascist,” a dangerous “strongman,” a “tyrant” in waiting, and so forth. But when an actual tyrant dies such as Fidel Castro the left quickly adopts more measured rhetoric. Its hysterical editorialists suddenly turn sedate. They urge people to see a reviled figure in perspective. Castro’s legacy is “divisive,” as the New Yorker hesitantly put it. “Cuba today is a dilapidated country, but its social and economic indicators are the envy of many of its neighbors.” Casting about for a circumspect word to describe a mass...

    The Catholic Herald (UK) ^ | 11/30/16 | Phillip Booth
    Liberal elites are paying the price for sidelining religious liberty. But Catholics must not leave the fightback to maverick populistsOne reason Donald Trump was able to put together a coalition big enough to get him elected as president was that there were so many single issues about which different groups of people were exercised. They cared much more deeply about that one issue than a whole range of other issues, on which they may have disagreed with the Republican nominee. This is one explanation for Trump’s lead among Catholics. Particular concerns among Catholics included life issues, of course. Many people...

    A sweeping free speech resolution has been rejected by Tufts University’s student government, whose members called the effort to broaden and clarify students’ First Amendment rights “unsafe.” Tufts has a “red light” speech-code rating from FIRE, which means it maintains at least one policy that both clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech.

    “The dictator of Cuba has died!!!!!FINALY!!!!” So starts the trumpeter Arturo Sandoval’s much-shared Facebook post, written in the early morning hours after Fidel Castro’s death was announced. “I'm happy that they'll cremate him, at least his bones will not contaminate the ground,” punctuated Sandoval, summing what thousands of Cuban exiles felt. Sandoval never minced words when he spoke about Castro and his dictatorship. His struggles as a musician and a husband where chronicled in the made-for-TV movie For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story (with Andy Garcia playing the role of the trumpet virtuoso), including Dizzy Gillespie’s “discovery” of...

    On this Thanksgiving Day, we can all be thankful to God for lifting up President (elect) Trump! The bickering and griping from the purists and professional conservative class who are out to prove that Trump is not a "true conservative" will go on forever, but they quickly forget that he has already saved (conserved) our nation from a one-way trip to a third-world Marxist/fascist cesspit under the rule of the godless Hillary Clinton. Let us not forget that Trump single-handedly (well, with a little help from legions of irredeemable, deplorable bigots, racists and assorted ne'er-do-wells) defeated the GOPe, the Bush...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- For the combatants in America's long-running culture wars, the triumph of Donald Trump and congressional Republicans was stunning - sparking elation on one side, deep dismay on the other. Advocates of LGBT rights and abortion rights now fear setbacks instead of further gains. But the outcome emboldened the anti-abortion movement and breathed new life into the religious right's campaign for broad exemptions from same-sex marriage and other laws. Kelly Shackelford, head of First Liberty Institute, a legal group that specializes in religious freedom cases, said that, for his cause, the environment will transform from "brutal" under...

    Blue-sters: Welcome to living in a world of isolation CHICAGO - It's evidently scary and somewhat traumatizing for Liberals to realize that there's half a population in America that sees things totally different from them. And there's a sizable number in the only blue Midwestern state of Illinois, too. What Liberals don't understand is that those that see the world from a traditional conservative perspective have been fully aware of the Leftist view imposed upon them and have psychologically learned to deal with it. It has made conservatives stronger and more committed to liberty than ever as they've watched the...

    Barack Obama said he wanted to transform America and in many ways he has succeeded. The problem is that his transformation has done enormous and perhaps irreparable damage to the nation by demolishing the people’s confidence that our laws will be impartially enforced. Instead of, as the Constitution requires of the president, taking care that the laws be faithfully executed, Obama and his minions have operated under a completely different concept – that the laws will be enforced (or not) with the objective of maintaining the incumbent party in power. If you doubt that, I recommend reading Liberty’s Nemesis, published...

The billionaire real estate mogul is living inside Mr. Obama's head day and night. Obama's obsession is understandable. Trump embodies the socialist's worst nightmare. In 2008, Obama, like all socialists, promised his followers a land of milk and honey. Eight years later, he's delivered unemployment, poverty, food stamps, violence in the streets, open borders, drug cartels, heroin overdoses, terrorist attacks on our own soil, $10 trillion more debt, no economic growth, and radical Supreme Court judges.

    Does it seem plausible that the true spark of the American Revolution was the religion of peace—Christianity? In fact, how could it be any other way in a country expressly founded to establish Christian religious liberty? Colonial America was one of the most intensely evangelized and churched societies in history. For example, according to Harry Stout in The New England Soul: Preaching and Religious Culture in Colonial New England, the typical colonists probably listened to 7,000 hours of sermons in their lifetime. For many colonists, their instruction in religion, science, history, politics and most other subjects were delivered only by...

Christians led by Canadian activist Bill Whatcott were slapped with a $104-million legal threat last week after infiltrating Toronto’s Gay Pride Parade in July dressed as “gay zombies” in green skintight suits to hand out info packets about the physical and spiritual dangers of homosexual practices. Former Ontario MPP George Smitherman, the province’s first openly gay provincial representative as well first openly gay cabinet minister, told Daily Xtra that he...

    “There is nothing more dangerous than a government of the many controlled by the few.”—Lawrence Lessig, Harvard law professor The U.S. government remains the greatest threat to our freedoms. The systemic violence being perpetrated by agents of the government has done more collective harm to the American people and our liberties than any single act of terror. More than terrorism, more than domestic extremism, more than gun violence and organized crime, the U.S. government has become a greater menace to the life, liberty and property of its citizens than any of the so-called dangers from which the government claims to...

    Is it wiser to be alive and a coward, or risk our lives to defend the truth of liberty? THE FIRST AMENDMENT ENUMERATES the right of the people peaceably to assemble. Originally, the text combined assembly with the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. During the session of the House of Representatives on August 15, 1789 during which the representatives present discussed the proposed amendment, Mr. Sedgwick of Massachusetts questioned the connection, arguing the right to assemble must be preserved regardless of the reason for assembly. The congressional record reads: “The right is of so trivial...

    When it comes to unity, the Democrats talk a good game -- but in the end they promote disunity because their electability depends on dividing society into groups and inciting anger, resentment and distrust. I don't need to cite examples of Democrats' blaming Republicans for divisiveness and falsely extolling their own aspirations of unity. They are everywhere. It's what they do, from their talk of our "common humanity," to their glorification of all kinds of diversity, except diversity of thought, to their proclaimed monopoly on tolerance. It's ironic that Democrats get away with this lie. It is Republicans, or at...

    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..." These opening words of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights seem perfectly clear. They were written by James Madison "in response to calls from several states for greater constitutional protection for individual liberties," and so "the Bill of Rights lists specific prohibitions on governmental power." How absolute are these prohibitions against governmental interference? According to some leading gay activists, these prohibitions are hardly absolute at all. In their view, religious institutions do not have the right to forbid homosexual practice. If...

    ...Though implementing a volunteerism plan of aid through the States, political opposition prolonged recovery, thereby sabotaging his reelection.

    As an informed reader, please think before you vote-- there will be many voters who will remain uninformed and cast their ballot anyway Although the media would have you believe otherwise, this election is not about personal decorum, social faux pas and political correctness. It is about: A return of decent jobs for American workers (not just more service jobs that pay low wages) through protective actions that provide better quality American products an equal chance in the marketplace (review of tax structure/tort laws that encourage American firms to produce items overseas, trade agreements, tariffs etc.);
