Declare we Care: Deconstructing the Left’s Fundamental Attraction
 By Dr. Brad Lyles

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

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

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

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.

Uniting the Nation is Not the Impossible Dream
 By Arnold Ahlert

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

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.

Ferguson window on Life in America over next two years

When it comes to present day Ferguson, Missouri, here’s the thing: Ferguson is the window on the final two years of Community Organizer Barack Obama in the White House.

Wind Production Tax Credit (PTC)
 By Institute for Energy Research   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

The federal wind Production Tax Credit (PTC) is a substantial subsidy that has provided the wind industry billions of taxpayer dollars and is working to harm reliable, affordable sources of electricity generation such as natural gas, coal, and nuclear power.

More Alternative Energy Follies
 By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

Down there in California’s sunny south is the Ivanpah Solar Power Facility (ISPF). It’s a massive structure in the Mojave Desert that was supposed to deliver an energy output of approximately 1.7 million MWh (megawatt-hours) of electric energy annually.  The ISPF uses 173,500 heliostats (adjustable mirrors to follow the sun) that reflect the sunshine onto boilers located on centralized power towers. The facility covers 4,000 acres (1,600 ha) of public land and received $1,600 million in government-backed loan guarantees. Another $600 million came from private investors with nearly one third of that from Google.

Third Reconstruction Will End America As We Know It
 By Gail Jarvis   --American Politics

Two of the federal government’s most futile and costly social experiments were Reconstruction and Prohibition. Although both failed, both still have supporters. It is unlikely that Prohibition could be resurrected , but there was a so-called Second Reconstruction a little over fifty years ago, and now we are hearing rumblings about the need for a Third Reconstruction. Basically, those who advocate this latest reconstruction want the government to redistribute income and wealth more “evenly.”

Here’s How America Responded the Morning After #FergusonDecision, in 35 Tweets
 By Heritage Foundation   --American Politics

From outrage and insensitivity, to prayers and peaceful mourning, Americans woke up to a flood of reactions to the St. Louis County grand jury’s announcement that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson would not be charged in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Debunking the House Intelligence Report on Benghazi
 By Clare M. Lopez   --American Politics

Editor’s Note: By Roger Aronoff

The report released last Friday on the September 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has once again brought to the surface this story that will not go away. Not, certainly, until those responsible are held accountable, and a truthful and accurate version of events and motivations in the months and days leading up to this tragic chapter in American history has been established.

The media embraced the report as bipartisan vindication of what the Obama administration has argued: Namely that yes, mistakes were made, we did everything we could to protect our people, and have put into place remedies, and changes in policies, so that nothing like this happens again. But the evidence and the testimony say otherwise.

Chuck Schumer admits ObamaCare was a mistake - fails miserably to learn from it
 By Robert Laurie   --American Politics

Back in 2008, Democrats rode into office on a wave of deeply misplaced optimism in Barack Obama. They held the House, the Senate, and the White House.  They could have done anything they wanted.  More importantly, they could have done anything the American people wanted.  So, of course, they chose to do the one thing that nobody wanted - ObamaCare.

TPM: Hagel had pretty much had it with Obama’s national security team
 By Dan Calabrese   --American Politics

The liberal site Talking Points Memo is often quite happy to carry Barack Obama’s water, but sometimes they surprise you and do some pretty good reporting. They have done so today, explaining a lot of the back story that led to Chuck Hagel’s departure as Secrtary of Defense.

Obama breaks the irony meter as he urges calm in Ferguson: ‘we are a nation built on the rule of law
 By Robert Laurie   --American Politics

If you watched President Obama’s statement on the Ferguson decision last night, you were treated to a parade of irony. It began with an appeal for peace and calm, paired with the laughable assertion that “First and foremost, we are a nation built on the rule of law.”

Terrorism in the Jerusalem Synagogue: From National Struggle to Religious War?
 By INSS   --World News

The terrorist attack carried out on November 18, 2014 in a synagogue in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jerusalem, which killed four men during their morning prayers and an Israeli policeman trying to stop the attack, was another step in an emerging trend whereby the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is liable to evolve from a national struggle into a religious war.

Rethinking the Tasting Note
 By David White   --Life-Pets-Gardens-Food

“This first wine is a fighter; he’s loud. The second wine is pensive; she has a dark side.” This past Saturday, as I led a seminar in Chevy Chase, Maryland, one of the participants offered these tasting notes while comparing two wines.

Follow The Sand To The Real Fracking Boom
 By Oilprice.com   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

When it takes up to four million pounds of sand to frack a single well, it’s no wonder that demand is outpacing supply and frack sand producers are becoming the biggest behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the American oil and gas boom.

Harvard students: How stupid are they? (And the case of the Louisiana literacy test)
 By Dr. Steven J. Allen   --American Politics

One of the great deceptions in American politics is that students at Ivy League schools such as Harvard know more about the great issues of the day than, say, students at a typical state university. In fact, a study conducted by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute suggests that students at “elite” schools such as Harvard and Yale are less knowledgeable about economics, politics, and American history than students at other schools—and, incredibly, that seniors at Harvard and Yale and some other prestigious colleges and universities know less than freshmen at the same schools.

Arbitrary & Capricious Justice?
 By Gary Hunt   --American Politics

“Arbitrary and Capricious” is a rather interesting phrase. Most people have never heard of it, so perhaps, it is time to understand what it is and what the legal significance is.

Media, Democrats Called Out Bush, Reagan on Abuse of Executive Power. Where Are Their Voices Now?
 By Heritage Foundation   --American Politics

Republicans are rightly and predictably infuriated by Barack Obama’s immigration executive action power play. What has been remarkable has been the silence from the left to President Obama granting legal status to some 5 million illegal immigrants. Such Nixonian abuses of White House power once elicited howls of protest from Democrats and their lap dogs in the media.

Joy Behar: Say, isn’t it racist to call it Black Friday?
 By Herman Cain   --American Politics

I suppose my first mistake was paying attention to what they say on The View. That will get you nowhere good.

Now I don’t really know what makes Joy Behar an authority on anything, and I suspect there is no answer to that question, but if she’s The View’s expert on matter of commerce and/or racial sensitivity then they’re in serious trouble.

Idea: Obama can just use his executive authority to arrest Darren Wilson
 By Dan Calabrese   --American Politics

Violence is rising again in Ferguson, Missouri, where they apparently cherish constitutional protections against mob justice except when they are part of the mob.

The media narrative is that a white police officer (Darren Wilson) shot an unarmed black man (Michael Brown) for no reason whatsoever. The grand jury, which carefully examined all the evidence, concluded there was a lot more to it than that and chose not to bring any charges against Wilson.

Progressives in Bed with “Cos” and “Hef”
 By Cliff Kincaid   --Media - Media Bias

Our media will only go so far with their investigations of Bill Cosby’s Playboy lifestyle. That’s because the media have been partying with Hugh Hefner and “Cos” at the Playboy Mansion.

The Good Muslim Terrorist
 By Daniel Greenfield   --Crime-Terror-Security

There are no Palestinians. There are no moderate Syrian rebels. There is only Islam.

The axe that fell on the head of a Rabbi in Jerusalem was held by the same hand that beheaded Yazidi men in the new Islamic State. It is the same hand that held the steering wheel of the car that ran over two Canadian soldiers in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec and the same hand that smashed a hatchet down on the skull of a rookie New York City cop in Queens all in a matter of months.

Ferguson decision: No charges against Officer Darren Wilson
