It’s a bloody “Sunday” for Christians dominated by Islamic extremists

By |October 24th, 2013|

There’s a jihadi slogan that says, “First comes Saturday, then comes Sunday.”  It means, on Saturday we kill the Jews and on Sunday we kill the Christians. Escalating persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Africa is evidence that “Sunday” has arrived. President Obama is apparently unfazed by the religious genocide against Christians as he cedes U.S power and influence in the Muslim world. […]

Ballot-palooza floods Colorado mailboxes, benefiting Dems

By |October 10th, 2013|

A third of a million Coloradans who have shown little interest in voting will get ballots in the mail this month anyway, teeing up a big pool of low-information voters for manipulation by Democrats and expanding the opportunities for election fraud.

The trigger for this was House Bill 1303, enacted last spring, which not only provides for same-day voter registration, but also requires election officials to reclassify […]

How they hijacked environmentalism & what we can do

By |September 11th, 2013|

(Centennial Fellow) The United States is quickly becoming the first country ever to adopt policies designed to ensure its own decline. Ours could be the first society ever to purposely plan its own bleak future. Melodramatic? No. Our nation is actually adopting official policies promoting a lower standard of living […]

Atheists and theists face off: Whose side is science on?

By |August 26th, 2013|

“It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism; but depth in philosophy bringeth men’s minds to religion.”– Francis Bacon, 1561-1626

They’re called the new atheists and are people like Sam Harris, a neuroscientist who should have stuck with studying the brain instead of trying to use his philosophically in ways that are surely embarrassing to the old atheists. […]

Egypt in chaos: the democracy trap

By |August 20th, 2013|

NANTUCKET—While this island’s most famous summer resident –Secretary of State John Kerry- tirelessly pursues a matter of comparative irrelevance- Israeli-Palestinian peace talks- the entire Middle East is turning into a blazing conflagration the likes of which we have not seen since the end of the Second World War.

Detroit's bankruptcy becomes a valuable warning

By |August 16th, 2013|

Look at Detroit, the first major American city ever to file for bankruptcy, and, after bemoaning how it got there and the hurt that’s going to follow, say thank you for this object lesson in how a bad situation can be made worse. […]

Dissent hardly limited to conservatives

By |August 16th, 2013|

A funny thing happening on the left side of the House. While political eyes focus on internecine tensions among the right, a similar thing seems to be occurring on the left, although it’s a far less fashionable topic upon which to comment. Polemicist and political philosopher Matt Damon’s public “breakup” with President Barack Obama offers a particularly silly example. […]

Exploiting race issues ignores real problems

By |August 16th, 2013|

In the days following the Supreme Court decision in June to strike down the dated provision of the Civil Rights Act requiring some states to receive permission from the Department of Justice before changing voting laws, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth among the left this signaled a return to the Jim Crow era of massive discrimination against black voters. What the wailers were saying was America remains a systemically racist nation and only the aegis of federal government keeps those impulses under control. […]

Western Conservative Summit recap: Three days of empowerment

By |August 16th, 2013|

Editor’s Note: Peg Brady of Centennial CO, a Western Conservative Summit delegate since our first year in 2010, annually contributes her exhaustive program notes for the benefit of fellow summiteers as well as those who couldn’t attend.  I liken her to James Madison, stenographer of the Founding, whose personal record [more] of the 1787 constitutional convention captured it forever in history. – John Andrews […]
