In the effort to be civil in conduct, many who know better actually dilute firmly held views to avoid appearing “judgmental.” They curb their tongues not only in form but also in substance. The insistence on civility in the form of our debates has the perverse effect of cannibalizing our principles, the very essence of a civil society. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

‘Houston, we’ve had a problem’

William J. Federer

"Houston, we've had a problem" were the words sent from Apollo 13, which was launched for the moon APRIL 11, 1970. Mission control identified that an oxygen tank had exploded, irreparably damaging the craft. Special prayer services were held at the Chicago Board of Trade, at St. Peter’s Basilica by the Pope, at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and reported in The New York Times. In April of 1970, President Richard Nixon had the nation observe a Day of Prayer for Apollo 13 astronauts. Even the U.S. Senate adopted a resolution urging prayer.

Out of the Closet: Anti-Capitalist Environmentalists

Bob Ellis

Though the Marxist roots and motivations of the global warming crowd was evident a long time ago, it still doesn't hurt to see fresh evidence that global warming hysteria is far more about promoting Marxism and far less about stopping an unscientific hoax of a "crisis."

Environmentalist Electric Car Sabotage

Tom Toth

Tesla has created a top-end electric car for the every-man. This could mark the beginning of the commonly used exhaust-free, electric automobile. What a glorious achievement for the environmentalist left! … Right? Well, not quite.

ObamaCare, Intended and Unintended Consequences

Robert Romano

The Halbig v. Burwell decision found that Obamacare exchange subsidies cannot be given in states that decided to not set up their own exchanges under an IRS regulation. When the D.C. Circuit Court rules on this issue in full, and the Supreme Court gets a crack at it, it is not up to judges to allow an agency to rewrite a law to suit its implementation, or to rewrite it themselves.

The Importance of History

Michael Peroutka

In the last few years, the idea of learning about our freedom documents has fallen out of favor in our government schools and perhaps has been neglected in our families, our churches, and our communities as well. Regrettably, more and more, as Americans, we know less and less about where we come from.

"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
