June 18, 2015 by


Mr. Alan Caruba Oct. 9, 1937 — June 15, 2015 It is with deep sadness that we mention the passing of Alan Caruba. Alan wrote prolifically, and had his own blog site, Warning Signs. Here at our site, we took his daily Posts which he added at his own site for 6 days a week, […]

No Strategy. No Clue.

June 12, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The Wednesday, June 10 Wall Street Journal headline at the top of the page was “Obama Set to Expand Troops in Iraq.” We were 589 days into the two terms Barack Hussein Obama has served in the office of President of the United States and he is as clueless now as […]

“Skeptics” Gather In D.C.

June 11, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ On Thursday and Friday, June 11-12, there will be a gathering of some of the nation’s and the world’s leading climate change “skeptics” in Washington, D.C. and joining them will be members of Congress and their staffs. The Tenth International Conference on Climate Change will occur and the odds are that […]

Predicting Earthquakes. Not.

June 10, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The president of the Space and Science Research Corporation, John Casey, is also the author of “Cold Sun: A Dangerous ‘Hibernation’ of the Sun Has Begun!” and has called attention to a meteorological cycle that until the global warming hoax occurred, was largely unknown to many people and, to a large […]

Caitlin Jenner? Hello Sucker!

June 8, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ It doesn’t matter that Bruce Jenner, famed Olympic athlete and member of the Kardashian family, thinks that he is female. He can never be female no matter what surgery he undertakes to make it reflect the fantasy in his head. Born a male, his body is a billion cells and nerve […]

The Hillary Enigma

May 29, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Does it strike anyone as strange that the only candidate for the Democratic Party’s nomination to be the next President of the United States is the wife of a former President? There is no historic precedent for this, no way to measure this against how Americans have selected Presidents in the […]

Leaving The Church Of Environmentalism

May 28, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ In March 2009 while the Environmental Protection Agency was rushing to fulfill a presidential campaign pledge to document that carbon dioxide (CO2) and five other greenhouse gases endangered public health and the environment, a longtime employee, Alan Carlin, put out a 93-page report challenging the science being cited and the drift […]

Barack “Climate Change” Obama

May 27, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ “Woe to the land that’s governed by a child.” – Shakespeare, Richard III I have been wrestling for some kind of explanation why the President of the United States, Barack Obama, would continue to talk about climate change and urge the global transition from fossil fuels to wind, solar and bio-energy. […]

Memorial Day 2015

May 25, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ We need to remind ourselves that Memorial Day is not just another three-day weekend or a day when all manner of sales are offered to those who want to go shopping. It is a day set aside to honor the ultimate sacrifice of those who have fought to defend our nation […]

Thinking About China

May 22, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Napoleon Bonaparte purportedly said “Let China sleep, for when China wakes, she will shake the world.” As Thomas J. Christensen, the author of his recently published “The China Challenge: Shaping the Choices of a Rising Power”, reminds us, “For millennia China was arguably the greatest civilization on the planet and for […]

The Slow Death Of Common Core

May 21, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Think about the major policy undertakings of the Obama administration over the past six and a half years. It began with a “stimulus” that wasted trillions in the quest of generating jobs, but did little to nothing in achieving that goal. That was followed by ObamaCare which most agree has been […]

Stupefying Generations Of Americans

May 20, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ I used the verb “stupefying” to describe a long process in our nation’s schools that has produced several generations of Americans, dumbed down and resulting in more than half who are functionally illiterate, nor can do math, and, as a recent headline reported “Student’s Results in Social Studies Stagnate.” “U.S. middle-school […]

My 2015 Commencement Address

May 18, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ All manner of people are giving commencement speeches to students graduating from colleges and universities these days. It is doubtful that any will be remembered because the prospects of students depend in large part on the economy into which they are entering, the majors they pursued, their individual ambitions, and capacity for […]

Sex Education Today

May 15, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ In the 1940s and 50s, what passed for sex education was literally about the birds and bees as metaphors for inception and child birth. The emphasis was on waiting until marriage to engage in sex. There were instructional books with a mostly medical orientation to the information they provided but whether […]

Endless Racial Discord

May 14, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ When I look back at the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 60s, I marvel at how naïve I was that the passage of major legislation was going to “solve” the problem of discord between the white and black race. On May 3, the Wall Street Journal reported on a […]

Obama’s Middle East Debacle

May 13, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ I had to laugh when I heard that the new King of Saudi Arabia, Salman, (pictured) told the White House he wasn’t going to attend Thursday’s photo-op get together of Arab leaders. Some lesser Saudi officials will attend. The message is clear enough, so long as Obama continues to make nice […]

You’re On The Front Line Of The Islamic War

May 12, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Does anyone remember what happened on September 11, 2001? Or is it just “ancient history” at this point? Some three thousand totally innocent Americans were murdered by a sneak attack on the Twin Towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Who did it? The same murderous Islamists who […]

How Can So Many World Leaders Be So Wrong?

May 11, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ In a recent Daily Caller article, Michael Bastach took note of “25 Years of predicting The Global Warming ‘Tipping Point’.” This is the message that the Earth is warming rapidly and, if we don’t abandon the use of fossil fuels for power, it will arrive to wreak destruction on the human […]

Celebrating Mothers

May 8, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ As someone who had the great good fortune to have had a remarkable mother, a woman who embraced being my Mother by providing unconditional love and support for my various activities and decisions over the course of my life, I approach the subject of motherhood with the knowledge that this does […]

Obama’s Economic Disaster

May 7, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Commenting on the rioting in Baltimore, the Wall Street Journal’s Daniel Henniger was almost to the end of his April 30 text when he said “On Wednesday morning, the year’s first-quarter GDP growth rate came in—0.02%. Next to nothing. For the length of the Obama presidency, with growth significantly below norm, […]

Holding The Voters In Contempt

May 6, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Today’s lead story in The Wall Street Journal is about the result of its latest poll regarding Hillary Clinton. It says a lot about why she and the leaders of the Democratic Party must surely hold its core members in contempt. “Support for her among Democrats remains strong and unshaken.” In […]

A Pox On Baltimore

May 5, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Thanks to an infection and the antibiotics taken to rid myself of it, I have had several days of being able to do little more than watch the news on television, listen to it on the radio, and reading about it in my daily edition of The Wall Street Journal. If […]

Circumstantial Evidence

May 1, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Imagine that you are the former Governor of Virginia, Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, both sitting in jail after having been found guilty last year of public corruption for accepting golf outings, lavish vacations and $120,000 in “sweetheart” loans. Compared to the Clintons they are just two failed bit […]

Just Another Race Riot

April 30, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ When you’ve lived over seven decades in America, the news about another race riot is really not news. It’s just another race riot. The latest is Baltimore and the theme for this one is police violence against an unarmed black youth. This was the theme of the Ferguson, Missouri riots last […]
