Liberalism as a Blind Faith Religion

In the book of Hebrews, chapter eleven verse one, the Bible defines faith as being the substance of hope in things unseen. Those of us who are skeptical of the claims found in supposedly holy texts know that this is only half correct; in addition to hope in things unseen, religious faith is the denial of that which can be seen. The evidence for a godless universe is abundant and has brought us to a day and age in which the concept of a supernatural creator may be dismissed with a quick reference to Occam’s infamous razor: The God Theory… Keep Reading

Trump administration signals intention to put America first in the Middle East

The Trump administration made clear on Friday that it intends to shift away from the previous two administrations’ stances on human rights in the Middle East, in order to prioritize the U.S. national interest by focusing on counterterrorism efforts in the region. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer stated that the United States understands the “political reality” of the situation in Syria. This corroborates earlier statements on Thursday by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that the “longer term status of President Assad will be decided by the Syrian people” and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley that “our priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting… Keep Reading

FBI’s Trump-Russia Investigations Begin as Democrats Back Away from Allegations

FBI Director James Comey announced Monday that the agency will be pursuing an investigation regarding Russian influence on the last year’s Presidential election, including any possible collusion between the Kremlin and Donald Trump. This comes after reports that Democrats are backing away from their Russia claims. “I’ve been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counterintelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election,” FBI Director James Comey said to the House Intelligence Committee. “That includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with… Keep Reading

The Deep State Attempts a Coup

Hitler’s 1923 coup attempt, best known as the Beer Hall Putsch, was only a nominal failure. The immediate result was his arrest, trial, and conviction, though his sentence was barely carried out. The long-term effect was to inspire in him the belief that power is best achieved through engagement with the ruling regime and existing democratic apparatus. Ten years later, his goal was accomplished by way of his legitimate but coercive ascendancy to the Chancellorship and the implementation of the Enabling Act. World War II put an end to his ambitions but Hitler’s prowess in actualizing his aspirations within the… Keep Reading

Roy Blunt Is Right To Investigate Russian Ties

On Monday night, General Michael Flynn formally stepped down from his position as National Security Advisor for the Trump administration. One Republican called for a further investigation, and should not be castigated. Michael Flynn had been under fire for weeks from outlets like the Washington Post for speaking to Russia about sanctions before President Donald Trump was inaugurated and lying about it. He issued a letter of resignation and Trump accepted Monday. The reason given for the resignation was that Flynn had given “incomplete information” to Vice President Mike Pence. Not knowing the extent of Flynn’s contact with Russia caused… Keep Reading

Obama Attacks Moscow to Salvage His Legacy

Try as he might to salvage what’s left of his tarnished legacy, President Obama can’t seem to avoid humiliating himself on his way out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. A year or two ago it became painfully apparent that George W. Bush was no longer a viable excuse for Mr. Obama’s own failings and since that time our outgoing Lame-Duck-in-Chief has been grasping desperately for some new bogeyman to point to for the cause of his presidential woes. The latest bogeyman/strawman/red herring has in recent months become Russia and its strongman president, Vladmir Putin. I won’t get into the gory details… Keep Reading

CNN labels Julian Assange a “pedophile” without evidence, Wikileaks responds with legal threat

The mainstream media has faced increasing scrutiny over the last year for its conduct, from both sides of the fence. Liberals allege that too much air time was given to President-elect Donald Trump, implying they legitimized a candidate who never should have taken off, let alone won the presidential election. Conservatives and libertarians suggest the media is still, as they long have been, biased against the right. Despite the difference in allegations, both sides of the spectrum seem to agree there is a credibility issue with the mainstream media. For all the allegations of pushing biased stories or overtly fake news, they have… Keep Reading

Fake News: The Alibi of Tyrants

A few days ago, Hillary Clinton gave a speech on Capitol Hill to pay homage to outgoing Senator Harry Reid. It should have been a happy occasion; Senator Reid’s tenure in congress has been a blight on our nation for decades, we should celebrate his departure from government. But instead, Mrs. Clinton took it as an opportunity to condemn an outbreak of “fake news” sweeping the nation and she was careful to characterize her concerns as being solely humanitarian. Lives are at risk, she says. Admonitions about humanity aside, Mrs. Clinton and the Democratic Party are, in truth, particularly outraged… Keep Reading

The Russians Made Us Do It

Whenever it came to anything that he knew he shouldn’t have done, the comedian Flip Wilson used to say: “The Devil made me do it.” For the Democrats, it is the Russians who made us do it. More exactly, it is the Russians who made the Democrats lose on November 8. For a variety of reasons, it is particularly odd that the left, of all people, would take to peddling this notion that Donald J. Trump won, or was helped to win, by Vladimir Putin and the Russian government.  In short, far from serving as an indictment of Trump, this… Keep Reading

October Surprise Over Syria’s Skies?

You may not have read about this in the mainstream news, but The Wall Street Journal  reported that there was a Russian air strike in June on a CIA-linked base which was a part of a campaign by Russia to pressure Obama to agree to closer cooperation over the Syrian skies, according to U.S. military and intelligence officials.   Four rebels were killed in that attack near the Jordanian border in the attempt to coax Obama to the negotiating table.  Possibly the Russians were upset that the US would not share any intelligence with them, so they may have sent a message… Keep Reading

Hillary Lovers, Wake Up!

To all the Romney/Ryan fans (i.e. “Hillary Lovers”)  exhibiting the intellectual dishonesty of people motivated more by fear than truth, I ask this question: Why  don’t you fear losing the Supreme Court for a generation to a bunch of radical leftist totalitarian justices? They apparently do not fear the out-of-control regulatory state that we know Hillary will expand. They apparently do not fear the gross excesses of the national security apparatus that we can expect from a Clinton Crime Syndicate that will make Nixon’s misuse of the IRS look like child’s play. They apparently care not a whit about corruption, since… Keep Reading

Is Russia the Real Enemy of the American People?

Why the demonization of Putin by Glenn Beck and other western media?  First off, let me just say that I enjoy watching many programs on the Blaze, but on Russia, Glenn is listening to the wrong people.   Glenn Beck has recently put out a one sided three part series ominously called, “The Red Storm” which caricatures Russia as an end times force of the “anti-christ” focused on destroying the west.  While the background history on the split between the Orthodox east and Catholic west was well done, the modern analysis falls apart and is easily refuted with just a cursory review… Keep Reading
