  • With Iran, the Left And The Media Are All About The Narrative

    The Obama-worshipping sycophantic media always presumes his motives are pure and conservatives are crass and evil.  And they just keep proving it over and over again. The New Yorker penned this piece titled “A Calculated Risk” which lays the blame for Iran’s nuclear ambitions on Henry Kissinger and Brent Scowcroft.   No kidding. Ford’s talks failed, as did negotiations undertaken by the Carter Administration. In 1979, the Shah fell to the Iranian Revolution. Ayatollah Khomeini, believing that nuclear weapons were un-Islamic, initially put Iran’s program on ice. After Khomeini’s death, in 1989, his successors bargained, smuggled, and dissembled, and by...
  • MS: Passage of 90% Constitutional Carry Appears Likely

    After a rocky start, Mississippi appears ready to pass a 90% constitutional carry bill.  Bickering among second amendment supporters seemed to doom constitutional carry in the state early this year.  Hard feelings were ignited between longtime legislative supporters of the second amendment, and serious, unfounded allegations were tossed about.   But it appears that those supporting the second  amendment in the Mississippi legislature have overcome those difficulties and passed a significant reform to restore second amendment rights on Friday, 27 March, 2015.  SB 2394  started off as an incremental reform to amend the concealed carry permit fees in Mississippi. ...

    'Taco Liberty Bell' (1996): Taco Bell Corp placed a full-page ad in seven major newspapers announcing it had 'bought the Liberty Bell' and was renaming it the 'Taco Liberty Bell' in-order to help pay-down the national debt. Predictably, angry (+ slightly naive and/or lacking a calendar) citizens melted the phones at the offices of the National Historic Park in Philadelphia where the bell is kept. Taco Bell executives let them stew for a few hours before revealing it was all an April Fools gag at noon.  President Clinton's quick-on-his-feet White House press secretary Mike McCurry responded when asked about the...

    One of America’s unacknowledged problems is the national calendar shortage. It is not a general problem but restricted only to a segment of the population, although an influential one. Unfortunately, the calendar-challenged group is composed mostly of Republicans. No doubt some Democrats are also a few calendars short of a load and are similarly living in the past, but recent news indicates where the phenomenon has proliferated. One sign of calendar deficiency is the start of the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Canada, the first major candidate to declare, announced his candidacy at Liberty University, Va.,...

    Atheist physicists often refer to a "primordial soup" as a basis for the development of life on earth. However, they cannot precisely map from that soup, in a mathematical way, into an actual life form. Sure, there are plenty of theories about atmospheric conditions that are "ripe for creating life", but it remains conjecture, although the die-hard atheist physicist presents it as factual. They use the "authority" associated with their title, or their position within a university or other research organization, providing false fodder for young minds full of mush, who could not think critically of their lives depended on...

    Ted Cruz won’t sit around and wait, because waiting is a loser’s game. Cruz, the first-term Republican senator from Texas, officially announced his candidacy for president of the United States early Monday morning. While there are many fascinating aspects to Cruz’s candidacy announcement—his climate change denials, his political grandstanding that led to a government shutdown— there is one question that immediately arises in my mind: What will he, a Cuban-American, do to speak directly to Latino voters over the next several months? Cruz has been dismissed in the past for not being “Latino enough.” And although he doesn’t speak fluent...

    Earlier today, the supposedly resurgent Eurozone reported a February unemployment number of 11.3%, which not only missed consensus but was worse than the highest estimate. This miss meant the recent steady trend of improvement would have halted if January's unemployment print of 11.3% hadn't been revised higher by 10 bps.  Still, 11.3% is better than the 11.8% reported a year ago, and as  the chart below shows, the trend is certainly Europe's friend if only for the time being. One does wonder, however, how much of the improvement is due to the borrowing the BLS' favorite tradition of lowering...

    The Earth is not in peril, only the truth and common sense are. The annual calendar is filled with days and months designated for the purpose of calling attention to some event, personality, or cause. The U.S. celebrates the birthdays of Lincoln and Washington that fall close together. There’s Mother’s and Father’s Day, Labor Day and Veteran’s Day, Valentine’s, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas. But who decided that April was “Earth Month” or that April 22 is “Earth Day”? Why are we expected to worship the planet that was here billions of years before we showed up and will...

If only the “loud last gasp” of the 7-month-old unborn baby ripped out of her mother’s womb in Colorado last week would end for once and for all the fallacious argument that a human baby is only a fetus while still in her mother’s womb. Then her moment’s long life would have saved millions of innocent children slaughtered by abortions that have become commonplace since the law birthed...

    Governor Bullock (D) of Montana vetoed constitutional carry, HB 298.   It seems that he did so on Friday the 27th of March.  He did not give a good reason for the veto; he simply applied the "we require a permit for everything else" excuse.  Perhaps we need to rethink this excessive requirement for permission from the state before we engage in our daily lives.  Five states have constitutional carry, and there is no evidence that it causes any problems.  Governor Bullock recommended that the gun muffler reform in HB 250 be improved to include all legal hunting.  It...

    The move to a cashless society won’t happen overnight. Instead, it is being implemented very slowly and systematically in a series of incremental steps. All over the planet, governments are starting to place restrictions on the use of cash for security reasons. As citizens, we are being told that this is being done to thwart criminals, terrorists, drug runners, money launderers and tax evaders. Other forms of payment are much easier for governments to track, and so they very much prefer them. But we are rapidly getting to the point where the use of cash is considered to be a...

    SIERRA VISTA — The Missing In America Project will have another ceremony Saturday at the Southern Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery during which the cremains of 17 former service members and one dependent will be laid to rest. Joe Larson, the cemetery administrator, said normally two such ceremonies a year are held in which indigent service members are honored. This year, two of those involved are World War II veterans. Since those being honored may not have family members, Larson said the public is a stand in for them an he hopes area residents will attend the ceremony. People should arrive...

    I’m usually an eager relayer of well-founded theories and clues which help get the truth out when politically-correct authorities try to hide or minimize the Islamic identity of jihad attackers, but in the case of Andreas Lubitz I must firmly state that so far (as of 3:00 am EST, U.S.), people are posting only completely unsubstantiated, non-credible reports that he was a convert to Islam. In the early absence of much solid information about the 28-year-old pilot’s personal life the internet is, of course, going wild with speculation about Lubitz’ motives for deliberately crashing the plane full of innocent people...
  • If There is Any Racism, It Has Been to Bend Back in Favor of Arabs!

    Arabs Actually Benefit from Reverse Racism in Israel -- Rather Than Suffering from Perverse Racism The ironies have never been greater, as will be the representation of the Arabs in the new Israeli parliament now in formation. Prime Minister Netanyahu has been accused of racism upon trying to get out his base to vote by pointing out that the press was observing that Arabs were coming out in droves on Election Day. But what does this tell us? Even the most anti-Semitic Israel basher and Netanyahu basher has to concede that the fact that Arabs were coming out in droves...

    President Obama’s Social Security numbers do not verify he even is a U.S. Citizen. A mismatch, two differing numbers at least, an imagined flight by a 15 year old from Hawaii to Connecticut to apply in person, and other anomalies are causing confusion yet again over the true identity of the man sitting in America’s Oval Office! A Notice of Mismatch on a Social Security Administration (SSA) Records form displays an incongruent match which was somehow sent to the President on 08/17/11. This mismatch refers to ss# 042-68-4425. The case verification number is 2011229111431GY. (1) The form contains a chilling...
  • Breaking: Peruta to be Heard En Banc

    The commonsense ruling that the second amendment applies outside of the home in the Peruta court case in the Ninth Circuit will now be decided by a hearing of an en banc panel of the justices of the Circuit. Decided in favor of the plaintiff, procedural motions eventually led to a at least one judge calling for the en banc hearing, sua sponte.  Thought to be unlikely because of both the clear ruling and the rarity of en banc hearings, the Ninth none the less voted to hear the case en banc.  The notice of the vote was published...

    Did the Enlightenment cause a global decline in violence?Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry Has the modern age seen a widespread decline in violence due to an awakening of western thought and culture in the 17th and 18th centuries? The author and neurobiologist Steven Pinker famously argued exactly that in his celebration of the Enlightment, The Better Angels of our Nature. Last week, in The Guardian, the author John Gray published a long article arguing that Pinker is wrong.So, who's right?Here are the points I would make.1. There has not so much been a decline in violence as a rise in squeamishness.As evidence of...
  • Pope Francis: Doctrine is cold and leads to an abstract world devoid of Theological Virtues

    The assault on doctrine continues as Rome disintegrates. Vatican Radio: "It is not 'cold doctrine' that brings joy, but faith, and the hope of meeting Jesus. He who cannot rejoice is an unhappy believer: that’s what Pope Francis said in his homily at Thursday morning’s Mass in Santa Marta in the Vatican: Abraham’s joy upon hearing that as God promised, he may become a father inspired Pope Francis’ reflection Thursday. Commenting on the day’s readings, Pope Francis remarked that Abraham is old, as well as his wife Sara, but he believes and opens 'his heart to hope' and is 'full...

    Among the countless tragedies that go by in fleeting moments on the streets of the hometowns of the world, Hernan’s is one that stands out unforgettably. In our own villages, towns and cities we all have a Hernan, or someone like him, but in the rush of everyday life, keep passing them by. The blind man with the tin cup, the homeless huddled in raggedy blankets, over city grates, the lost, lonely and the forlorn are sadly only fleeting moments in the lives of the perpetually purposeful and busy. Someone else will try to find out if there is any...
