    Canada Free Press ^ | 2/27/2015 | Douglas V. Gibbs
    Republicans, and conservatives that file into Tea Party meetings and rallies, Constitution Classes, and Libertarian gatherings, say time and time again that they are so tired of having to battle the failures of President Barack Obama. His failed policies are nearly more than they can digest. He fails to understand economics, his failed Obamacare program is destroying health care in America, he fails to understand the underlying reasons behind why the government shutdowns occurred, he has failed in the Middle Class and he has failed to bring anybody out of poverty. Failure after failure after failure after failure. He even...

    Interesting how the really bad weather NOW makes the stock market go up instead of down? Seems that some years ago, I noticed the indexes would fall after a bad storm and the media would immediately report that the economy was affected by the weather. Also, some military action in some other part of the world affected stocks here. I mean, it almost to the point of where if Obama farts, the market goes up (or down). Our sources of information have all been co-opted by the Devil. The general public has no clue to what degree the media has...

After listening to Marie Harf explain that "extremists need jobs" I realized that the violence that won't be named is only an example of the ongoing culture war in our own country. Fundamentally, Marxists of whom Obama is an adherent attribute historical movements the material dialect. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dialectical_materialism) Essentially matter precedes thought. People, as groups, are motivated not by religion, which is a mere epiphenomenon of matter, but by material need. I...

    Famous "Night-Stick in Cumerbund Shot" Mr. Rizzo was one of those seemingly larger-than-life figures, destined to be hero to some and villain to others. One view was that the former Police Commissioner and two-term Mayor was the last bastion against threats to middle-class residents of the city's row-house neighborhoods. The other view was that Mr. Rizzo was a barely educated former police officer who used a hard line on crime and tactics bordering on the dictatorial to suppress opposition and keep blacks out of middle-class neighborhoods.

    During a British concert last fall, Dizzy Gillespie dedicated a number to "Mother Africa". Looking at the audience with a characteristically mocking smile, he added, "We're going to take over the world, so you had better get used to it." The listeners chuckled, secure in their own freedom from predjudice and convinced that Dizzy was just clowning again. A few nights later, a group of British jazzmen held a private party in honor of Gillespie. Toward dawn, Dizzy burst into an impromptu lecture: "You people had better just lie down and die.

When will Jews be forgiven the Holocaust? Never. However, there has been a shift in the underpinnings of anti-Semitism. Israel has become the collective Jew among the nations, as the late French historian Lon Poliakov said about the new metamorphosis of Jew-hatred.

    Public opinion sets bounds to every government, and is the real sovereign in every free one. As there are cases where the public opinion must be obeyed by the government; so there are cases, where not being fixed, it may be influenced by the government. This distinction, if kept in view, would prevent or decide many debates on the respect due from the government to the sentiments of the people. In proportion as government is influenced by opinion, it must be so, by whatever influences opinion. This decides the question concerning a Constitutional Declaration of Rights, which requires an influence...

    Many people dont know that the early feminists (those who fought for a womans right to vote in the 1800s) were mostly pro-life. Mattie H Brinckerhoff was a popular lecturer in the Midwest on womens suffrage and other womens rights topics. Here is some of her writing on abortion. Her use of the term voluntary motherhood dealt with the choice women should have to refuse to have sex in order to avoid childbearing. Its hard to believe, but at the time, women had no right to refuse sex with their husbands- they could not prosecute him for rape, and culture...

    A handful of state legislators from across the country gathered at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to announce the creation of American State Legislators for Gun Violence Prevention or ASLGVP. The new group, which claims to be non-partisan, will work to push new gun restrictions at the state level. But the coalition has one major problem they will not let anyone know who they are.

    NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has measured a tenfold spike in methane, an organic chemical, in the atmosphere around it and detected other organic molecules in a rock-powder sample collected by the robotic laboratory's drill. "This temporary increase in methane -- sharply up and then back down -- tells us there must be some relatively localized source," said Sushil Atreya of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, a member of the Curiosity rover science team. "There are many possible sources, biological or non-biological, such as interaction of water and rock."

    Clinic Quotes ^ | Sarah Terzo
    Former abortion clinic worker Rayna Rapp, who herself had aborted a disabled baby, wrote a book where she interviewed men and women going through the process of amniocentesis to detect abnormalities in their babies. She has many quotes from these men and women, some of whom aborted, some of whom did not, in her book, but I would like to present two quotes from the author herself. In these, she talks about the conflicting values between supporting the disabled and aborting them before they are born. Over the years of this study, I learned a great deal about two related...

    Abby Johnson tells the following story: Though Id been with Planned Parenthood for eight years, I had never been called into the exam room to help the medical team during an abortion, and I had no idea why I was needed now. Nurse-practitioners were the ones who assisted in abortions, not the other clinic staff. As director of this clinic in Bryan, Texas, I was able to fill in for any position in a pinch, except, of course, for doctors or nurses performing medical procedures. I had, on a few occasions, agreed at a patients request to stay with her...

    A wide variety of rankings exist for the market of American colleges and universities. Each year, U.S. News & World Report releases its Americas Best Colleges edition. The magazine grades each institution based on factors including peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, and student selectivity. Yet, U.S. News does not rank the overall experience that colleges offer. That is why Young Americas Foundation presents the following list of institutions that offer a conservative experience for students. Young Americas Foundation deemed these institutions the best, and they are listed in alphabetical order. Many conservative students seek alternatives in higher...
