  • Fmr U.S. Treasurer Buchanan talks moving ahead in politics, not being afraid to voice your opinions

    The American University's Eagle ^ | October 10, 2015 | Deanna Mudry
    Former U.S. Treasurer and conservative commentator Bay Buchanan spoke to an audience of students and faculty Wednesday night about the importance of self-confidence and strong convictions in politics. At the Kennedy Political Union event, held in the SIS Abramson Founder’s Room, Buchanan told students she did not know what she wanted to do in college. Encouraged by her brother Pat, she took a leave of absence from graduate school to work on President Richard Nixon’s re-election campaign, giving her the political bug that would shape the rest of her career. “There is such a level of excitement in [that] office...

    The Bakersfield Californian in Kevin McCarthy’s home District observed in a complimentary article certain key issues to bring “renewed luster for the Golden State.” Directly quoted, these are: Water: Improved prospects for legislation that sends more water to farmers and studies new storage sites. Environment: Diminished environmental regulations, increased oil and gas drilling and streamlined timber harvesting. Business: Silicon Valley and California’s commercial space industry have both received his attention in the past. These are certainly issues of state and national importance. Each is highly focused on their effects on the oil and agriculture economy of the San Joaquin...

    Stirring myself to the right words after One of Those Tragedies always takes a while. First, there’s the dragged-down feeling of “here we go again.” The antis rush gleefully on stage to perform their blood dances and once again, decent people need to respond to them, if for no other reason than to keep the record straight. We can’t even stop to speak with decency and sympathy for the horrible losses because to speak at all is to become political. And that’s obscene. Mass murders, whether by bomb or knife or vehicle or poison, are horrific individual tragedies. But mass...

    Hard lessons about Big Business, the Chamber of Commerce, their undue influence in the Republican Party have been a hard one for me to accept, and yet too many people are content to shout ''Establishment" without really identifying the core problems This has been the hardest lesson for me to learn. I never thought that being pro-business could compromise one’s fight for liberty and limited government. Yet I have learned to accept what Scott Rasmussen argued after the disappointing 2012 President Elections: too many people still see the Republicans Party as pro Big Business.

Last time, the shutdown resulting in sequester for many agencies that suspended work for many government employees; a great deal of political theater dominated the news cycle; but ultimately, things returned to a basic normalcy. This time may be different, as a number of critical factors face Americans in 2015. Last week, Congress passed “procedural martial law” to address stop-gap spending as it faces the debt ceiling crisis again. Meanwhile, this quietly announced martial law forced a vote on bills the same day,...

    Violence on the horizon? Rioting at this weekend’s Washington, D.C. gripe-fest celebrating the 20th anniversary of the endlessly hyped, misnamed Million Man March, seems like a definite possibility. Just this week 12 people were arrested in Hartford, Conn., for disorderly conduct after blocking traffic and access to the University of Hartford as they chanted “Black Lives Matter!” After demonstrators refused to stop sitting and standing in the road, they were arrested. While protest-related arrests aren’t necessarily cause for much concern, they are just the tip of the iceberg. As Breitbart News reports Like many Democrat-run cities across the country, Hartford...

Despite the public outrage that attended the murder of Kate Steinle by Juan Francsico Lopez-Sanchez, a seven-time convicted felon who had been deported five times, the number of illegal alien protection centers known as sanctuary cities has increased. The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reports the number of these law-obstructing entities has grown to 340, compared to only 276 identified as recently as last July. CIS’s analysis is based on new information released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that covers the...

The curtain should be brought down because this is a show that stinks to High Heaven Intriguing that Pope Francis would warn bishops and cardinals attending the synod to beware of getting caught up in conspiracy theories, as conservatives and liberals reportedly engage in Machiavellian attempts to manipulate the synod. “Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi on Thursday confirmed reports that the pontiff had warned Catholic bishops and cardinals behind closed doors on Tuesday not to get caught up in “the hermeneutic of conspiracy”.

    Newest menace to the globe: Laughing Gas Some dentists use Laughing Gas for its analgesic effects instead of local anaesthetics. It’s supposed to prevent pain when they get close to your nerves. I’ve never had the pleasure of such a treatment and my dentist prefers the modern “slight discomfort” version of the poke and needle variety. Of course, that’s miles ahead of the procedure I experienced in my early years when the dentist appeared to use a hammer drill to lay bare the live nerves of my teeth—without any analgesic at all. But I’m getting sidetracked. This post is about...

    The U.N.'s dream of Sustainable Development is precisely a Brave New World It was just a matter of time before Eugenics met Climate Change. Even if it sounds like science fiction and absurd speculation, the discussion is taking place now in scientific circles. In fact, this is the ultimate application of science to the human condition. For instance, designer babies might be genetically engineered to be smaller as adults: This would proportionally reduce their carbon footprint. Or genes might be inserted to improve night vision. That would allow nighttime lighting requirements to be reduced, thus saving boatloads of energy and...

The natural elements that limit human freedom have been fought against (and largely won) with advances in technology, agriculture, economics, and science.  We've eliminated starvation and thirst through agricultural technology, cured diseases through medicine, and though we have yet to unlock the secrets of immortality, the majority of people today do not spend their time searching for a clean water...

    In an interview with Terry Gross for her "Fresh Air" program on NPR Monday, Univision anchorman Jorge Ramos provided a glimpse into his reasoning on immigration. As seen in the excerpts below, Ramos makes no distinction between "undocumented immigrants" and legal immigrants. He believes that since Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are Latinos whose parents immigrated to the United States they should support illegal immigration. It is irrelevant to Ramos that that their parents came legally. Here it is clear that Ramos's argument benefits from the change in terminology for the national immigration discussion.

    The federal government uses very carefully manipulated numbers to cover up the crushing economic depression that is going on in this nation. For the month of September, the federal government told us that 142,000 jobs were added to the economy. If that was actually true, that would barely be enough to keep up with population growth. Sadly, the truth is that the real numbers were actually far worse than that. The unadjusted numbers show that the U.S. economy actually lost 248,000 jobs in September and the government added more than a million Americans to the “not in the labor force”...

Introduce the repeal to Congress, work it through the states, and tell the American people what you want to do — take from them a fundamental, enumerated right from the Bill of Rights. As Charlie eloquently outlines, repealing the Second Amendment is an impossible task. Even worse for the Left, it’s political suicide.But if the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges teaches us anything, it’s that the age of judicial supremacy means that...

    All they have to do to marginalize America’s white population into total irrelevance is wait for current law to take full effect. But that would require waiting a few decades, and liberals are impatient: According to Portland State University Professor’s Rachel Sanders’ “White Privilege” course, “whiteness” must be dismantled if racial justice will ever be achieved.The course description states that “whiteness is the lynchpin of structures of racial meaning and racial inequality in the United States” and claims that “to preserve whiteness is to preserve racial injustice.”Students taking the course will “endeavor to make whiteness strange.” In order to make...

    By NY Post Editorial Board Commentary by John Velisek USN (Ret), CiR Staff Writer “Move over, trigger warnings, and make way for full-blown censorship. Students and staff at Wesleyan University are demanding the school cut funding to its own newspaper, The Wesleyan Argus, for publishing a column questioning the Black Lives Matter movement. What’s in this piece of blasphemy? The op-ed asks BLMers to ‘rethink how’ they’re approaching the problem of racial injustice and recommends they distance themselves from the ‘vilification and denigration of the police.’ Sounds pretty reasonable to us. Not to some in the ever-outraged Wesleyan community. Until...
  • Political Correctness, Not Critical Thinking, is the Key to Our Demise

    We must get back to common sense, logic and critical thinking and it must begin at home and within our educational institutions We have all heard it before. Students at colleges and universities around the country are demanding that anyone who has a differing opinion than their own should be tarred, feathered, banned and removed from their sight. Student groups claim that inviting anyone with a differing opinion onto their campus threatens their very safety or well-being. Sound ridiculous? Leaders at these educational institutions are listening to these demands resulting in the creation of a generation that is single-minded, self-absorbed,...
  • Yet More Mindless Attacks On E-Cigarettes

    This column has already documented officialdom’s unrelenting war on e-cigarettes. In fact, those articles were some of the best-read I have ever posted, so I guess we touched a nerve. The insidious tag team—comprised of Big Tobacco and the supposed public health interest groups against smoking—is perfectly evocative of the “Bootleggers and Baptists” phenomenon, originally described by economist Bruce Yandle. This latest attack comes in the form of certain Indiana laws, passed this year. Specifically, we refer to Indiana House Enrolled Act 1432 (regulates e-liquids); and Indiana Senate Enrolled Act 463 (regulates the sales of e-cigarettes, treating them as tobacco...

    September was another month of murders in Chicago. We have seen the murder rate – and the attempted murder rate, too – skyrocket in recent years, in Chicago, Baltimore, New York, St. Louis … all homes of half a century or more of liberal policies, all laboratories of Leftist solutions, all booming centers of the modern welfare state and the omnipresent leviathan. How could this happen, we ask ourselves? Why is the murder rate up? Every time a murder or mass killing occurs, the Left immediately aims the focus of the investigation in the direction of the weapon. Was it...
  • A New Global Police to Fight “Violent Extremism” in the U.S.?

    Why exactly does Obama want the “Strong Cities Network”? The Obama administration plans to create a global police force that counters “violent extremism” in the United States and elsewhere. The problem is that in Obama-speak “violent extremism” refers not only to jihadists wishing to harm Americans but also to conservatives and Tea Party activists. Just ask all the law-abiding right-of-center nonprofit groups targeted by Lois Lerner’s IRS during the Obama presidency. Ominously, President Obama and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch unveiled the Strong Cities Network last week at the United Nations. America’s chief executive, who speaks in hushed and reverent...

    First, let's all pray for the repose of those killed in the mass murder last week. It is no secret that this gunman Chris Mercer, targeted Christians. He queried his victims before he shot them; the Christians were shot in the head while non-Christians were shot in the legs. That aspect was curiously absent from Obama's remarks after the shooting. Had the victims been shot because they were anything but Christian, Obama would have denounced the hate-crime aspect of the murders. But it is not Obama's screed that I want to address at this time, loathsome as it was. As...

    You think individual left-wing fruitcakes on Ritalin are dangerous? Just wait until left-wing government gets into power without a citizenry that is broadly and heavily armed By now the reader is well-aware of the recent school shooting that took place at Umpqua Community College in Rosedale, Oregon. Another mass shooting, another excuse for the left-wing vultures to prey on the carcasses of the dead. Another opportunity for Pres__ent Obama to grandstand and huff and sigh and affect an air of righteous indignation. Another occasion for left-wingers to roll their eyes and complain about how even after this shooting, those dastardly...

    My name is Christine, and I get food stamps. I've had to apply off and on over the past 16 years in order to make sure my family was fed. I don't feel the least bit ashamed of myself for this, but apparently some people think I should. Some people think I, and people like me, am lazy. Or that we're taking advantage of other (smarter, harder-working) people. Those people seem to have an image in their heads of how someone who "deserves" assistance behaves, and a very narrow idea of how we should feel about it. Those people are...

    Conservative predictions come true In a move that virtually every conservative on Earth saw coming a mile away, House Democrats have introduced a bill that would extend ObamaCare coverage to America’s illegal alien population. Sponsored by radical Dem Representatives Luis Gutierrez and Judy Chu (the usual suspects of illegal support) the “Exchange Inclusion for a Healthy America Act of 2015” seeks to grant illegals ACA enrollment via the healthcare exchanges. Here’s Luis Gutierrez, outlining the ways in which his admiration for the Pope and his belief in the golden rule were responsible for this piece of legislation. Keep in mind,...
