  • Politically correct is political ignorance

    Renew America ^ | 12-12-13 | Alan Caruba
    Americans are inclined to believe that, with the collapse of the former Soviet Union, the Cold War from 1945 to 1991 was over. In fact, that war of ideologies, communism versus capitalism, began in the 1920s after the Bolsheviks, led by Vladimir Lenin, initiated a covert program to undermine America. Today we call it "political correctness" and its impact on our society is sapping it of its true history and values. "Willing Accomplices: How KGB Covert Intelligence Agents Created Political Correctness, Obama's Hate-America-First Political Platform, and Destroyed America" by Kent Clizbe, a former CIA espionage officer, reveals how active and...

    Renew America ^ | 10-1-13 | Alan Caruba
    On the conservative side of the political spectrum, we frequently refer to liberals as "low information voters," a nice way of saying they are stupid. From their point of view, however, we are the stupid ones. And not merely stupid, but evil. The divide between conservatives and liberals can be seen in the outcomes of the many polls and surveys that are announced on a daily basis. The numbers are depressingly the same; ranging from 40-40% or 50-50%, depending on how many respond that they don't have an opinion. There is, moreover, what I call the "thirty percent syndrome" of...

    I do not write unpleasant things about Barack Hussein Obama because he is a Democrat, a far-left liberal ideologue, a confirmed liar, or the sock-puppet of whatever cabal that chose him long ago to be the President. I write unpleasant things because he is all of these things, but also because he is the most stupid man to have ever held the office of President. As far back as January 2, 2010 I wrote that Obama had "an imaginary life" because there was no proof that anything he claimed in his two memoirs, written by the age of 45, was...

    Those of us around at the time of the 1979 Iranian student revolution that deposed the shah are having strong feelings of déjà vu because that uprising was swiftly co-opted by Ayatollah Khomeini who hated the Great Satan, America, as much as he hated the Little Satan, Israel. The U.S. lost a major ally in the Middle East. The Shah may have been a bastard, but he was our bastard. The CIA had put him on the Peacock Throne. The uprising in Egypt, if taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood, will severely endanger American interests that have largely been coasting...

    In his book, ''State of Fear,'' author Michael Crichton appended an opinion entitled “Why Politicized Science Is Dangerous,” and cautioned against, “a social program masquerading as a scientific one,” citing the widespread eugenics movement in the early part of the last century. “A second example of politicized science is quite different in character,” warned Crichton. “It exemplifies the hazard of government ideology controlling the work of science, and of uncritical media promoting false concepts.” Just as eugenics drew praise and support from politicians, academicians, and media in its time, so too has the manufactured crisis of global warming today. This...

    No matter where you go in America, some things remain the same. One is the acute injustice of the "education lobby." State budget woes have brought educrats out in force. In Oregon, they want to borrow against next year's budget to avoid this year's cuts. In Seattle, espresso-cart operators have gone ballistic over a 10-cent-a-cup "latte tax" placed on the fall ballot, with the proceeds, in the millions, going to schools. The educrats' universal slogan is "do it for the children." Invariably, "it" refers to the transfer of money from the taxpayer's pocketbook to the educrat's bank account. When I...

    I served long ago in a peacetime, Cold War army, but my training in the combat arts and the skill-sets necessary to stay alive probably didn’t differ that much from that which Marine Corps 2nd Lt. Ilario Pantano received. No, in fact, his training was probably better. Marines exist for one purpose. They are not peacekeepers. They are true warriors. They are the ones sent first to where the fighting will be the worst. They know it. They volunteer for it. On April 15, 2004, the Lieutenant and his patrol were on duty in Iraq’s violence-filled Sunni Triangle. That date...

    An interview with Pat Buchanan in the May 17 edition of The Washington Times has evoked a lot of discussion on the various message boards that self-identified conservatives visit. "The conservative movement has passed into history," said the three-time presidential candidate, commentator, and magazine publisher. He’s right. As a movement, a unifying force, the conservatism that mobilized people to vote in sufficient numbers to give control of Congress to Republicans in 1994 and, with the exception of eight years with Bill Clinton in office, has put Republicans in the White House has lost its momentum. Since then, the Democrat Party...

    Does anyone seriously believe the Palestinians want peace? The Israelis retaliated against a man who had plotted the deaths of hundreds of their countrymen and, in return, his colleagues kill whom? University students. Young people among whom were four Americans. The Palestinians danced again in the streets of Gaza. When Israeli Jews die, the world looks on and regards it as part of a war being waged against them. I am not talking of soldiers, but the countless civilians, the children and teenagers who are targeted along with others. As in the Hebrew University bombing, the aim here is to...
  • THE FAILED EDUCATION "REFORMS" (12-year old cuffed for puddle jumping)

    Sometimes a single incident can reveal the widespread rot that has affected the nation's school systems as they strive to indoctrinate the children entrusted to their care while neglecting to teach them the Three R's. In Inverness, Florida, a 12-year-old boy was cuffed*, arrested, and taken in a patrol car to jail where he was held for two hours. His crime? You aren't going to believe it! Kyle Fredrikson was walking back to class from lunch when Deputy Tim Langer saw the boy "purposely stomping in the water" after being told numerous times by school personnel to stay with the...

    Given the rise in statements about the manner in which this nation went to war in Iraq or our current military conduct of the conflict there, it is time to review the law that defines sedition. It is found in the U.S. Code, Title 18, Section 2388: Activities affecting armed forces during war.

    There was a time when, if you wrote or spoke out against the United Nations, you would be dismissed as some "right-wing nutcase" who saw conspiracies or was some kind of "isolationist" who didn't understand the need for an international forum where the problems of the world could be resolved without resort to warfare. Turns out that the United Nations, founded in 1948, is not simply incapable of stopping wars and genocides, it is so utterly corrupt that it needs to be eliminated entirely in the hope that the many other existing international organizations, treaties, unilateral and bilateral relations can...

    Say what you will about the former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, demonized by the Democrats when Clinton was in office, the man’s intellectual powers are impressive. It was, of course, Gingrich, along with former Rep. Dick Armey, who wrote the Contract with America that put the Republican Party in control of Congress in 1994. The Contract, which virtually all of the then-GOP candidates signed, proposed some concrete solutions to problems. With Republicans in the majority, the welfare system was reformed, balanced budgets followed, and so did the first tax cuts in memory. There were rule changes in the...

    Guard dogs on commercial properties would be outlawed, towns could not legally stop people from feeding feral cats and a medical diagnosis would be required to euthanize an animal. Police would be trained to perform CPR on injured cats and dogs, and they would be the front line in animal abuse probes. Special teams of county prosecutors also would be created to handle the cases, much like they already do for child abuse, sex offenses and major crimes. These are just a few reforms being proposed by leaders of Gov. James E. McGreevey's Animal Welfare Task Force, a group charged...

A Christian fundamentalist, a racist, a nationalist and a Muslim hater, who originally is an Englishman, emigrated to the US in 1979, in a bid to pour the American tax payers’ money in defence of the ‘ever innocent and defenceless’, Zionist state of Israel. Why? Oh, because the ‘Holy Scripture...

    Let´s just say it and get it over with. The most recent winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Jimmy Carter, is dumber than a box of rocks. He is the quintessential liberal without the slightest grasp of reality. "But, Alan, he was the President of the United States", you say. That´s right and the good citizens of this nation voted him out after just one term because they quickly came to the conclusion he didn´t have a clue about either domestic or foreign affairs. The various despots of the world took a look at Jimmy and instantly knew they had...

    George W. Bush calls himself "a war president," but Americans seem to be more focused of late on the state of the economy. The war was fought and won so swiftly, it has virtually faded from the minds of Americans, despite the fact we have troops deployed in combat situations in both Iraq and in Afghanistan. Once the "embedded" journalists came home, the war, for most people, was over. Only it's not. This war is about transforming a region of the world in ways that may well take a generation or more. It's about ridding the region of despotism. It's...
