‘Alan Caruba’

No Strategy. No Clue.

No Strategy. No Clue.

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 he was when he arrived on January 20, 2009. “President Barack [...]

“Skeptics” Gather in D.C.

“Skeptics” Gather in D.C.

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 the mainstream [...]

Predicting Earthquakes. Not.

Predicting Earthquakes. Not.

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 degree still [...]

Caitlin Jenner? Hello Sucker!

Caitlin Jenner? Hello Sucker!

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 contacts whose DNA determines his true [...]

The Hillary Enigma

The Hillary Enigma

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 past. Like most Americans, I first [...]

Leaving the Church of Environmentalism

Leaving the Church of Environmentalism

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 [...]

Barack “Climate Change” Obama

Barack “Climate Change” Obama

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. I have concluded that he [...]

Memorial Day 2015

Memorial Day 2015

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 and take military action in foreign nations. We honor, too, those who [...]

Thinking About China

Thinking About China

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

The Slow Death of Common Core

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 a disaster for the nation’s [...]

Stupefying Generations of Americans

Stupefying Generations of Americans

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. [...]

The EPA Myth of “Clean Power”

The EPA Myth of “Clean Power”

BY ALAN CARUBA There are many things I do not like about the Environmental Protection Agency, but what angers me most are the lies that stream forth from it to justify programs that have no basis in fact or science and which threaten the economy. Currently, its “Clean Power” plan is generating its latest and most duplicitous Administer, Gina [...]

My 2015 Commencement Address

My 2015 Commencement Address

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

Sex Education Today

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 they could be found in the [...]

Endless Racial Discord

Endless Racial Discord

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 survey regarding racial disturbances around the nation such as [...]

Obama’s Middle East Debacle

Obama’s Middle East Debacle

BY ALAN CARUBA I had to laugh when I heard that the new King of Saudi Arabia, Salmon, 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 with Iran, the center of the problems in the Middle [...]

You’re on the Front Line of Islamic War

You’re on the Front Line of Islamic War

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 attacked an event in Garland, [...]

How Can So Many World Leaders Be Wrong?

How Can So Many World Leaders Be Wrong?

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 race and all life on the planet. It [...]

Celebrating Mothers

Celebrating Mothers

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 not apply to everyone. I have friends [...]

Obama’s Economic Disaster

Obama’s Economic Disaster

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, unemployment [...]
