I do not believe that the Constitution was the offspring of inspiration, but I am as perfectly satisfied that the Union of the United States in its form and adoption is as much the work of a Divine Providence as any of the miracles recorded in the Old and New Testament. — Benjamin Rush, To Elias Boudinot on July 9, 1788. Letters of Benjamin Rush, L. H. Butterfield, ed., (Princeton, NJ: American Philosophical; Society, 1951), Vol. I, p. 475.

Amnesty With Open Borders Equals National Suicide

Dr. Robert R. Owens

Now the Southern border has been all but erased by a pre-arranged catastrophe. What does America’s Community Organizer in Chief say in response to Republican reticence in voting millions to pay for lawyers to argue against our own laws? He tells us he is going to unilaterally grant amnesty through executive edict to millions if not tens of millions while holding the door open to millions more. Of course he will wait till after the2014 midterms are over so that his party can campaign against amnesty while planning to grant it afterwards.


A Sad Discrepancy

Jim Bowman

In retrospect, while Obama dangled possibilities of peace from a Middle East withdrawal, which included Afghanistan, today, his long ago campaign tactics are handcuffing his current options. Despite the chaotic threats now emerging from Iraq, Obama remains intent and is full speed ahead with his Afghanistan departure at year’s end. As such, one man’s stubbornness may be cited but there appears to be a more systemic factor with this impasse.


The Dark Side of Humanity

A.J. Castellitto

Corruption, pride, control, deceit, dishonesty, etc., has permeated throughout Washington and Wall Street/Corporate America for many decades. Government, in particular, has steadily become a monster of man’s design, and it’s turning on us. Government cannot be trusted. The media cannot be trusted. Too many corporations cannot be trusted (to do right by their consumers and employees).


Max De Pree has the answer to Ferguson

We cannot continue to ignore circumstances that practically guarantee ongoing intergenerational poverty and the dysfunctional behavior that accompanies it. The costs of not addressing and changing what has failed in low-income communities and the whole country are enormous. The moral costs speak to our willingness to tolerate hundreds of thousands of babies born in our country each year whose chances of a decent life are miniscule and yet continuing, year after year, the same failed policies that assure no future for these children.


"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
