Will Obama Lose The Baltic States?

JD Longstreet

Putin's Russia has drawn the Crimea back into the Russian fold and has moved troops up to the borders of the eastern most portion of the Ukraine. Should he decide to invade the Ukraine, no doubt he will be successful and the West -- or as we are referring to the alliance of western states today -- "the Unled," will have lost again.


Societies Worldwide Rushing to the Same Conclusion

David Pepe

The present day in which we are living is moving at exponential speeds and there has never been a time in the 6000 year history of man in which our global society has moved this quickly. Our world and global society is moving and changing at the speed of a jet and billions are oblivious to where this jet is taking them.

Israel: Afflicted with Olmertia

Victor Sharpe

So bad was the crippling effect Ehud Olmert’s policies had inflicted upon Israel that "olmertia", a word which both rhymed with and had a similar meaning to the word, inertia, described the situation in Israel; what the Penguin English dictionary referred to a state of being inert and sluggishness; a lack of skill; an indisposition to motion, exertion or change. But the meaning ofolmertia for the Jewish state went much further and was far more debilitating than mere inertia.


Noah Movie Misses an Epic Opportunity


Noah is a significant departure both from the Biblical narrative and message, and Faith Driven Consumers are likely not going to spend their hard-earned dollars on an entertainment product that fails to resonate.


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.

A Way Out for College Kids

American education is in trouble—that much seems to be a given. Our public schools and colleges are getting poor results, our young people are drowning in debt, new graduates can't find jobs, and our overall rankings in the world are pretty dismal. We are greatly in need of a transformation, but we need to think big, because the problem is huge.

Liberals in California Target Judges with Boy Scout Ties

Gina Miller

Give them an inch, and they’ll demand a mile. We warned you that the terrible decision by the Boy Scouts of America to allow openly homosexual boys into membership would only lead to further attacks against the organization by the militant homosexual Left. We were right, and the target is now judges who have ties to the Scouts.

The Rightful Remedy

Guest Author

Two hundred thirty years after the Founders won American independence from a tyrannical monarch, the inheritors of their estate are facing a hard reality: liberty is jealously defended or it is lost. As all three branches of the federal government exercise powers beyond those granted, our God-given rights are under sustained assault. The question is: what is the remedy?


"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
