BY ALAN CARUBA If there is one thing various experts and pundits like to do most it is to worry about all manner of speculative threats. I can recall when much of their focus was on the Soviet Union until 1991 when it collapsed along with the decline in the cost of oil. The fall of the Berlin [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY The Obama Administration is now trying to outlaw single-sex classrooms, a practice that has been growing as parents and teachers see its good results. The Obama Administration is discouraging that option in conformity with demands by the feminists who believe in the [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Most of the people of the world have concluded that the decades of warnings about “global warming” and its successor, “climate change”, is just idiotic nonsense. Few believe that humans ever had or ever will have any role in what the weather will be tomorrow or a thousand [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA The news from Sydney, Australia was of another incident in which a lone Islamic fascist took civilians hostage to fulfill a demented notion of a “holy war” on non-believers. After a siege by police two of the hostages he had taken were dead along with the gunman. These [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Fifty years ago in 1964, a political star was born in America. His name was Ronald Reagan, and he electrified conservatives with his television address called “A Time for Choosing.” It was delivered on behalf of Barry Goldwater’s nomination for President. Reagan wrote [...]
EDWARD WHITE, ACLJ My colleagues and I at the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) have good news to report. We successfully resolved our recently filed lawsuit against the Borough of Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey, to ensure that people can spread the Gospel without [...]
WALTER OLSON, CATO INSTITUTE There’s a new legal attack under way against firearms, as the press reports: Ten families touched by the Newtown massacre filed a wrongful death lawsuit Monday against companies that made, distributed and sold the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle that Adam Lanza used to [...]
NICOLE KAEDING, CATO INSTITUTE Over the weekend, the Senate approved the $1.1 trillion Cromnibus spending package, which funds parts of the government through September 2015. The ink isn’t even dry on this spending bill, and already big spenders in Congress are gearing up to increase [...]
JOHN A. SPARKS, CENTER FOR VISION AND VALUES When Case Western University law professor Jonathan Adler testified before a House subcommittee on July 31, 2013, he had no idea that his analysis of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) could bring that gigantic piece of legislation [...]
JORDAN SEKULOW, ACLJ American Pastor Saeed Abedini – a U.S. citizen imprisoned for his Christian faith – has written a heartbreaking letter from his prison cell. He talks about both the difficulty of spending Christmas trapped in a cold dark prison cell and how his faith in Christ is [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Ronald Reagan was elected President in 1980 and was easily re-nominated at the Republican National Convention in 1984 in Dallas. That Convention adopted a Republican Platform that enunciated Reagan-style conservatism and pro-family goals at home and abroad. At Republican [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Sometimes I think that Jews are going to have to arm themselves in order to celebrate Chanukah. These days, merely praying in a synagogue, whether it is in Jerusalem or Brooklyn has become hazardous. Of course, those who hate Jews don’t really need an excuse to attack them. [...]
BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~The neonics and honeybees saga takes interesting, potentially fraudulent turn~ Widening efforts to blame neonicotinoid pesticides for honeybee “colony collapse disorder” and other “beepocalypse” problems have taken a fascinating turn. Insisting that scientific [...]
BY T.F. STERN This evening my wife and I attended a Christmas Devotional Service for Temple Ordinance Workers who serve in the Houston Texas Temple. For us it’s become something of a tradition, a means of kicking off the Christmas Season. This year was no different as we heard talks which [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA The U.S. was the world's number one economy prior to World War II, but it took off bigtime after the war and there has not been a day of my long life in which we were not number one—until now. The International Monetary Fund recently released its calculations regarding the [...]
By Craig Rucker ~Radical global warming campaigners trespass on treasured Inca cultural sites~ Greenpeace likes to pretend it’s on the side of local people, especially indigenous peoples. But time and again they demonstrate a shocking degree of cultural boorishness. Now Greenpeace [...]

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Obama received a thundering rejection to his attempt to make the November Congressional election a referendum on his policies. And the biggest Republican majority elected in more than 60 years promised to bring new life to Congress. But instead of offering a conservative [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA When the Republican Party takes over majority control of Congress in January, it will face a number of battles that must be fought with the Obama administration ranging from its amnesty intentions to the repeal of ObamaCare, but high among the battles is the need to rein in the [...]
BY T.F. STERN Being Politically Correct has become a mandate, one which you had better take seriously. Take for instance the push for Social Justice; you must be aware there is a concerted effort to establish a particular mindset intended to prosper a Black generation far removed from [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Clearly President Obama did not get the message the voters sent in the November midterm elections, electing enough Republican Senators to shift power in the Senate and to increase it in the House. Many Presidents in their second term encounter this shift, particularly if they are [...]

TED GALEN CARPENTER, CATO INSTITUTE As if the United States didn’t already have enough foreign policy worries, a dangerous issue that has been mercifully quiescent over the past five years shows signs of reviving. Taiwan’s governing Kuomintang Party (KMT) and its conciliatory policy toward [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA I doubt there was ever a time in America, pre-Revolution and since, that race was not an issue. It was for the framers of the Constitution who, in order to get the southern colonies to accept it, included in Article Two that, for the purpose of taxation, slaves were to be [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA No, Pearl Harbor is not ancient history. It’s part of my history and many others who were alive at the time. I was just an infant, but the Japanese sneak attack on our Hawaii naval base led to early memories of being on trains filled with young soldiers, many of whom did not [...]
BY MORTIMER J. ADLER, PH.D. A recent book, entitled Apes, Men, and Language, bears the subtitle "How teaching chimpanzees to 'talk' alters man's notions of his place in nature." I cite this book, not because it is better or worse than most books of its kind, but because it is the latest in a [...]
BY JONATHAN DOLHENTY, PH.D. Classical realists generally define the academic discipline of philosophy as the study of all reality in its ultimate causes and principles through the use of human reason alone. We also differentiate various branches of philosophy, such as metaphysics, ontology, [...]
