Santa in Dress Blues
 By Lance Thompson Full Story

Santa in Dress Blues

A short heartwarming Facebook video making the rounds depicts a small boy who mistakes a Marine sentry for Santa Claus.  I won’t spoil the end.

Pig-headed BDS Movement
 By Barry Shaw Full Story

Pig-headed BDS Movement, Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement backfires in South Africa

The incident that got BDS banned from demonstrating at Woolworths stores in South Africa was when members of a political party in support of BDS trespassed into one of the stores and placed pigs heads in what they thought was the kosher foods section.

Declare we Care: Deconstructing the Left's Fundamental Attraction

Declare we Care: Deconstructing the Left's Fundamental Attraction

We Conservatives fail to capture the hearts and minds of too many voters because we do not declare ourselves to be caring. And why shouldn’t we declare we care? We are caring. And, we are Conservatives because we are caring.

Thanks, But...
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

Thanks, But…

I know that Thanksgiving is the day we are all supposed to review a list of all the things for which we should be thankful and surely each of us has a list, usually family and friends, and, patriotically, for being Americans.

Executive Action for Immigration
 By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story

Executive Action for Immigration

The President’s “immigration accountability executive action” has confused many Americans since a president’s action is more or less a “wish list” and does not have the legally binding power of an executive order. Unlike an executive order, an executive action is not published in the Federal Register.

Obama and the Roots of the Ferguson Rage

Obama and the Roots of the Ferguson Rage

And so the whirlwind, cultivated by Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, the mainstream media and the army of thugs they enabled, is now being reaped. As the result of a St. Louis County grand jury refusing to indict officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of Michael Brown, Ferguson, MO, has become Ground Zero, in what irresponsible Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadali referred to on MSNBC as “St. Louis’s race war.”

Politicians and Media Incite Violence in Ferguson
 By Cliff Kincaid Full Story

Politicians and Media Incite Violence in Ferguson

With Ferguson in flames and mobs running rampant, it became apparent to everyone—except the liberals and libertarians—that the media-hyped “militarization” of the police was not the problem. Instead, the problem in Ferguson was, and is, a criminal element doing drugs and determined to engage in anti-police violence. The additional problem is outside agitation.

Sick Banners at Seattle's Ferguson Sympathy Protest
 By Edward Zawadzki Full Story

I cannot believe the banner displayed at the demonstration in Seattle in support of the Brown family and the tragedy that befell Michael. It seems that some political morons flew the distasteful sign that asked people to condemn Israel and support the Palestinian cause. Now everyone has the right of protest and opinion (even me) no matter how delusional and mindless it may be but to do so just sullies and ruins the very reason that those peaceful protesters gathered.

Uniting the Nation is Not the Impossible Dream
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

I am a conservative. The 2014 mid-term election marks the 20th year (at least) I’ve voted against something rather than for something, or as the phrase goes, “the lesser of two evils.” I’d like to blame Democrats for my predicament, but I can’t. They are what they are, and their downward spiral from the party of JFK, to the collection of divide-and-conquer, lying hacks who disdain America’s language, culture, traditions – and finally, our national sovereignty–has been evident for quite some time.

High River, Alberta Forced Entries, Unwarranted Searches and Seizures
 By Dennis R. Young Full Story

High River, Alberta Forced Entries, Unwarranted Searches and Seizures

Last week, we learned that the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP has once again delayed releasing the report of their investigation of the RCMP’s actions during and following the emergency flooding in the Town of High River, Alberta in June and July of 2013.  The Commission’s investigation is looking into the RCMP’s forced entries of 754 homes, their unwarranted search of 4,666 homes, the complaints filed by more than 1,900 home owners, the RCMP’s seizure of more than 600 firearms and the destruction of more than 7,500 pounds of ammunition.

Grand jurors in Ferguson, Mo., refused to indict local police officer Darren Wilson yesterday, heroically resisting pressure from President Obama on down to lynch an innocent police officer who fought off a violent attacker.

America: a Banana Republic Without Bananas!
 By Dr. Don Boys Full Story

America: a Banana Republic Without Bananas!

Should U.S. taxpayers be expected to finance millions of the 12 million uneducated, unskilled, and often un-American illegal immigrants? I can defend the position that we should not finance legal immigrants? With Obama’s legalization of at least five million illegal aliens, he will turn America into a banana republic—without bananas. While many of the aliens covered are decent, hardworking people, many are not. I think this tragic immigration policy will create political, financial, and cultural anarchy.

"Legacy of Racial Discrimination,” to Blame for Violence in Ferguson?
 By John Lillpop Full Story

In Ferguson, MO, the era of “post-racism” that candidate Barack Obama promised six years ago, was no where to be seen Monday night, as protesters violently ignored the hypocritical “rule of law” sermons delivered by America’s outlaw president.

Setting the stage for something much bigger
 By Doug Hagmann Full Story

Setting the stage for something much bigger

In nearly three decades of investigative experience that has included my direct or peripheral involvement in numerous jury decisions and grand jury presentments, I’ve never seen anything like what’s presently playing out in Ferguson, Missouri. Never. To describe the situation as “bizarre” would be a tremendous understatement. We are clearly being managed.  The nation is being managed, or perhaps “gamed” is a more appropriate description of the events playing out before us.

Maple Leaf Mercenaries?

Hagel First Obama Domino to Fall After Midterms
 By Douglas V. Gibbs Full Story

Hagel First Obama Domino to Fall After Midterms

The Obama administration is cleaning house, or members of the failed Obama presidency are running for their political lives.  They each have their reasons, political ambitions, and the way the media has been spinning each departure, but the reality is clear: President Barack Obama is a failure (or a success, if you are a hard left statist calling for an authoritarian regime in the White House), and he is expanding the executive branch’s powers in ways the framers of the United States Constitution never intended.
