Home Sweet Home in Freight Shipping Containers
 By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story

While the world is sizzling and percolating in conflicts and wars, and U.S. is roiling in manufactured crisis after crisis, real or imagined emergencies, overwhelmed by the constant invasion of illegal immigrants, The Washington Post writes on the front page, “Thinking inside the box on D.C. housing costs,” living in repurposed dinged freight shipping containers. Two days before, Deborah K. Dietsch featured “Thinking big in a small way.” (Michael Laris, July 21, 2014)



Democrats Led By Obama and Harry Reid Determined to Scuttle USA
 By Jerry McConnell Full Story

It has been obvious for a long time, at least getting close to six years since the incredibly unfortunate date of January 20, 2009, when Barack Obama was illegally sworn in as our 44th president, though unchallenged proof of his eligibility has yet to be presented.  Oh, yes, phony paperwork, badly handled and mismanaged, has been presented at times by the usurper himself, but it has always been exposed for the fraudulent state that it is in.


Statism is the Disease, Fueled by Human Nature
 By Douglas V. Gibbs Full Story

In 1787 a group of delegates met in Philadelphia to create a new government, one based on limiting principles, individualism, and the concept that as free men our rights are natural rights given to us by Nature’s God.  Government, the founders determined, is necessary, but is also always prone to becoming tyrannical.  The way to best guard against the rise of tyranny is to divide power at all opportunity, and to create checks and balances to ensure the powerful do not collude with other parts of government, or that a minority of ruling elitists somehow gain control of the system and use it to force their will upon the people.


A Great Plan to Replace the EPA
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

For years now I have been saying that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must be eliminated and its powers given to the fifty states, all of which have their own departments of environmental protection. Until now, however, there has been no plan put forth to do so.


Do we really want a parallel Sharia Compliant Economic System in the West?
 By Diane Weber Bederman Full Story

I discovered, quite by accident, that there is a Muslim based economy developing in Canada: Halal and Sharia Compliant Investments, with their own laws specific to Sharia law. It has been developing rather quietly for several years. I found a reference to the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Sharia compliant laws from 2011 on Blogwrath  after I had already lodged my own complaint with CIBC regarding these investments. I never heard back from CIBC but I did get a notification from Twitter that I was now being followed by the investment broker whom I had reported.




Calgary: Pro-Palestinian protesters aren't the problem, the cops are
 By Arthur Weinreb Full Story

As Canada Free Press reported, Pro-Palestinian demonstrations have taken place in many cities and countries throughout the West. These protests occasionally turned violent as did the one held last Friday in Calgary, Alberta. But what happened in Calgary was different.


Trudeau’s Support for Israel Undermined by Liberal Nominee Kang at Calgary Anti-Israel Hate Rally
 By Mitch Wolfe Full Story

Congress must pass the OSS Gold Medal Bill

As our Second World War veterans pass to their eternal rewards, members of Congress are moving to recognize the most secretive of the veterans, the men and women of the Office of Strategic Services.


ObamaCare's Murky Future
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

A pair of federal Appeals Court rulings have sown further confusion regarding ObamaCare, even as they illuminate stark differences in ideologically-inspired interpretations of the law. First, a three-judge panel from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 that Americans are not entitled to subsidies for their healthcare premiums if they live in a state where the federal government set up a healthcare exchange.


Obama to the rescue – of Hamas
 By Caroline Glick Full Story

Operation Protective Edge is now two weeks old. Since the ground offensive began Thursday night, we have begun to get a better picture of just how dangerous Hamas has become in the nine years since Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip. And what we have learned is that the time has come to take care of this problem. It cannot be allowed to fester or grow anymore.

Federal Court Says Obamacare Subsidies Illegal -- what next?
 By Alan Joel Full Story
Federal Court Says Obamacare Subsidies Illegal -- what next?

A federal appeals court handed down a ruling this morning that could be problematic for ObamaCare. As just reported, “A judicial panel in a 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to those people who bought insurance in an ObamaCare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov.” You can read the entire appeal here.


There is a sickness festering in Calgary, Alberta
 By Diane Weber Bederman Full Story

On Friday July 18, a Pro-Palestinian demonstration took place in Calgary. The organizer of this event was the University of Calgary student club “Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights” whose current president Ala’a Hamdan recently said “My body and soul are ready to fight and die,” and “This land will be proud that Palestinian babies are born men and women ready to spill their blood.” In a fictional battle hymn written to a son, Ms. Hamdan also wrote: “I will soak a koffiah with your blood and save it to show to your siblings ... I will be named the mother of the martyr.”  Featured speaker at the anti-Israel rally was Alberta Liberal MLA Darshan Kang who will be running for the federal Liberal Party.

Bare Bones of the Planning of Revolution
 By Timothy Birdnow Full Story

On June 28 in 2009, José Manuel Zelaya Rosales was prevented from staging a coup d’etat in Honduras by the Honduran military. Zelaya, a Hugo Chavez wannabee, dreamed of extending his term of office beyond the constitutionally allowable two terms, and he was proceeding with a “referendum” to grant him a third term. The constitution of Honduras did not allow for this, and in fact any president so proposing another term immediately forfeited his office. The Honduran supreme court, at the behest of the national congress,  asked the military to forcibly remove the renegade, and the military (quite properly) acted to remove a would-be dictator. American liberals called it a coup and demanded Zelaya’s reinstatement.


Texas to Take Action on Obama’s Border Crisis
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

Texas Governor Rick Perry announced Monday afternoon that he is sending 1,000 members of the Texas National Guard to the U.S.-Mexican border. “Over the years I have repeatedly called on the federal government to live up to its responsibility of protecting this great nation by securing the border,” said Perry, who added that he will “not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault and little children from Central America are detained in squalor.”

A blow to Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood as Israel crushes Hamas

A few weeks ago shocking news arrived from Israel regarding the kidnapping of three young men. As news first circulated around the world, Israelis braced for the worst and prayed prayers for the safe delivery of the Israeli captives. How would this menacing action unfold for the victims and the country?


Terrorist supporters behind the ‘Israel must die, long live Palestine’ mobs
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

While frightened little school children in Israel hide under their desks during Palestinian rocket attacks, street mobs in the rest of the world are chanting “Israel must die, long live Palestine” over and over again in raucous voices growing louder.
