The American new conservative majority we represent is not based on abstract theorizing of the kind that turns off the American people, but on common sense, intelligence, reason, hard work, faith in God, and the guts to say: “Yes, there are things we do strongly believe in, that we are willing to live for, and yes, if necessary, to die for.” That is not “ideological purity.” It is simply what built this country and kept it great. — Ronald Reagan, 1977 CPAC speech

Simon Schama’s History of the Jews

Victor Sharpe

I watched the first installment of Simon Schama’s TV production: History of the Jews. Schama started what he called the story, strangely not the history, at a period some 3,000 years ago. But that timeline was already ancient Jewish history, which essentially is nearer 4,000 years old.

Palestinian Authority Lead Negotiator Saeb Erekat faces U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry as both address reporters following a meeting focused on Middle East peace at the Muqata'a Presidential Compound in Ramallah, West Bank, on January 4, 2013.

The Rabbit Hole of Saeb Erakat

Victor Sharpe

That master of falsehoods, fabrications and breathtaking mendacity, Saeb Erakat, is at it again. Erakat, who is the Palestinian Authority’s chief negotiator in the delusional “peace talks” between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, has yet again made the hoary old claim that the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians are descended from the extinct Canaanites.

Obama, Putin: Ever Hear Of The Monroe Doctrine?

JD Longstreet

Basically the Monroe Doctrine, boiled down to its essential parts states that European countries should stay on their side of the pond and the US will reciprocate by staying out of their business -- and -- on our side of the pond. I have to wonder if either Obama or Putin have ever even heard about this policy instituted by American President James Monroe.

Obama Lacks Respect Among World Leaders

JD Longstreet

Nearly four years since and the world is a much meaner place -- due mostly to the fact that there is no policeman prowling the globe.. Allow me to amend that and say the policeman may still be on the beat, at least to an extent, but he is now disarmed. That may be a better description of the current attitude of America in global affairs. The US has the weakest presidency and the weakest State Department in my memory of well over seven decades.

Jail for AGW Disbelievers: The New Tolerance

Rick Manning

Some random philosophy professor from the Rochester Institute of Technology named Lawrence Torcello has decided that if you don’t agree with him on climate change, then you should be criminally prosecuted. Here is his actual quote in the UK journal, “The Conversation”, “We have good reason to consider the funding of climate denial to be criminally and morally negligent.”

A Whiff of Perfidy

Victor Sharpe

The stench of betrayal was evident in the House of Representatives on Thursday, March 13, 2014. Secretary of State, John Kerry, revealed utter appeasement towards the overwhelmingly Muslim Palestinian Authority and a cavalier dismissal of the legitimate rights of Israel: The Jewish state. With his own words, he can now no longer be regarded as an honest broker in the so-called “peace process.”

Bob Ellis

He’s Not There!

Paula Dagnel

During the time of the early Church, when one believer would greet another, he would say “He is risen!” And the other believer would respond “He is risen, indeed!” I’d love to see that brought back to the present day; and if not every time we greet our fellow believer, at the very least, on this Easter weekend.

If Jesus Came to America, What Would He Find?

David Pepe

If the Lord Jesus Christ came in our day (2014) to the "land of the "free", what would you expect the majority of Americans to do with Him?

What If Satan Is Real?

Dave Daubenmire

Do you believe in God? Most Americans do. Nearly 93% of Americans believe in some type of “higher power.” The United States has the highest population of self-identified Christians in the world, nearly 250 million. That is 78% of Americans who identify themselves as believers in the Christian God. But if 78% of Americans believe in the Christian God why do so few believe in the Devil?

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
