The Optimism In Technology A Challenge To The Left

July 20, 2022 by


By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ French philosopher Pascal Bruckner, in dissecting the “ideology of catastrophe”, observed that the time-honored strategy of “cataclysmic discourse” emerges in large measure from intellectuals and that the”fear that these intellectuals spread is like a gluttonous enzyme that swallows up an anxiety, feeds on it, and then leaves it behind for […]

The Perverse Agenda Of Black Lives Matter

July 21, 2021 by


By Star Parker ~ Since the new wave of race consciousness that has been sweeping our country, precipitated by the graphic video of the killing of George Floyd by police officer Derek Chauvin, something very strange has happened. Somehow, what is perceived as a problem has become widely understood to be the solution. And it […]

Why Americans Must Stand Up To The Left’s Power Grab

June 13, 2020 by


By Mike Gonzalez ~ Parts of the movement started by widespread revulsion at the murder of George Floyd have metastasized into a power grab by hard leftists. Their aim goes beyond dismantling the police—likely to have an early sell-by date—but targets the suppression of such tenets of liberalism as speech and property rights. Conservatives who […]

Observations From An Indignant Millennial

June 20, 2019 by


By Mark Alexander ~ “I had always hoped that the younger generation receiving their early impressions after the flame of liberty had been kindled in every breast … would have sympathized with oppression wherever found, and proved their love of liberty beyond their own share of it.” —Thomas Jefferson (1814) Having read my recent column, […]

Green Zealot Clive Hamilton: Freedom Is Our Enemy

May 11, 2017 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Abusive Clive Hamilton -former Greens candidate, Gaian and Climate Change Authority member -once suggested the “suspension of democratic processes” to push global warming schemes. Now Hamilton – who seems to me a proto-totalitarian – claims freedom is our enemy: …the forces we hoped would make the world a more civilised place – personal freedoms, […]

Atlas Almost Shrugged

February 28, 2017 by


By Cynthia E. Ayers ~ “If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the […]

” Youmerica “

March 19, 2016 by


By Daniel Greenfield ~ The paradox of the individualistic society is that it can only exist if individuals embrace virtues that are greater than their own needs and whims. A society where each individual acts as a little tyrant, pursuing his desires with total selfishness at the expense of everyone else becomes collectivist as the […]

What The Role Of ‘We The People’ Is

July 5, 2015 by


By Edwin J. Feulner, Ph.D. Founder of The Heritage Foundation ~ “We the People.” We’ve heard that phrase so often it’s easy to overlook its significance. But as we mark our nation’s birthday, we should take a moment to ask ourselves: What is the role of the people? Our nation is unique because of its universal founding […]

What If We Were Winning But Nobody Noticed?

February 24, 2014 by


By Dr. Michael Ledeen ~ It’s all about winning and losing, but the best man doesn’t always win, and outcomes frequently have more to do with luck than with merit.  Brilliant strategies fail, and fools stumble into glorious victories.  Napoleon preferred a lucky general to a brilliant one. Which brings us to today.  The headlines […]

The Original, Right-Wing Extremist

February 11, 2014 by


By David M. Huntwork   One can reasonably presume how today’s Left would characterize and attack the person I am about to describe to you. Without a doubt, he would be characterized as some sort of dangerous, right-wing, tea-bagging, homophobic, Christian Neanderthal who should be maligned, attacked, marginalized, silenced, and driven from power. Character assassination […]

Free Markets, Individual Virtue, Fuel Prosperity

September 16, 2013 by


By Star Parker ~ We should wonder how we have so many discussions about freedom and so few about individual free choice and personal responsibility… An important new book addresses the question of global poverty, but does so by provoking the reader to also consider our own nation and demand that we better understand ourselves […]

From Communist To Conservative

July 12, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ “The law of socialist economy is this: from each according to his exploitability, to the nomenklatura (the elite governing group) according to its greed. Not only does the socialist economy not produce wealth at a rate a free economy does; the socialist economy consumes wealth it accumulated in the past.” This […]

A New Birth Of American Freedom

July 11, 2013 by


By Star Parker ~ A Fourth of July Gallup Poll presented an interesting picture of our country. Americans overwhelmingly express pride in being American, yet the division is wide and deep about what being an American means. Eighty-five percent of respondents say they are extremely or very proud to be an American. Yet, 71 percent […]

If I Were Dictator (Part 2)

June 15, 2011 by


By Marlin6 On 02-05-2008, I authored a post “Benevolent Dictators Make Good Government”. Examples are King David – Israel – (1010 BC –970 B.C.) in ancient times and General Douglas McArthur – Japan – (1945 –1947) in modern times. I started musing about what I would do if I were absolute dictator of the United […]

What Communism Feels Like

December 15, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba Recently I received an email and requested permission to share it. It says a great deal about the danger of a government inclined to ignore the Constitution. December 15th is Bill of Rights Day; time to read them if you have not done so already. The text below has been lightly edited […]

Our Failing Public Schools

September 1, 2010 by


By Paul HollrahThere is an old adage which says that man exists in a continuum. He goes from bondage to faith, from faith to hope, from hope to courage, from courage to freedom, from freedom to abundance, from abundance to complacency, from complacency to dependency, and from dependency back to bondage.  The original author of […]

This video is of the recent Graduation Ceremony at High Point University in North Carolina, and was posted to You Tube by BaldEagleInfo home site of The American Eagle Foundation.

A Tribute to Charlton Heston, a Hollywood Rarity!

April 7, 2008 by


Former NRA president Charlton Heston, 1923-2008 THE FOUNDATION “His integrity was most pure, his justice the most inflexible I have ever known, no motives of interest or consanguinity, of friendship or hatred, being able to bias his decision. He was indeed, in every sense of the words, a wise, a good, and a great man.” […]

Pro-Victory Documentary – Outside the Wire Video Trailer – You Can Help!

April 4, 2008 by


Why is it that people in the know, who have, or are currently experiencing, the very thing they are expert in are always met with disagreement from those who either don’t have the knowledge, don’t have the actual experience and/or don’t even know “which way is up”? Or by those who will believe anyone who […]
