Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

Climate Alarmists Never Quit!

Climate Alarmists Never Quit!

BY ALAN CARUBA In the same way Americans are discovering that the Cold War that was waged from the end of World War Two until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 is not over, Americans continue to be subjected to the endless, massive, global campaign to foist the hoax of global warming--now called climate change—on everyone. The [...]

Israel’s “Disproportionate” Self-Defense

Israel’s “Disproportionate” Self-Defense

BY ALAN CARUBA On Sunday, July 27, Eleanor Cliff, a member of The McLaughlin Group panel, referred to Israel’s “disproportionate” response to the thousands of rockets and missiles that Hamas has been firing at its citizens for months, if not years. This is a common criticism of Israel, but it is far easier to make if you are living [...]

The Next Great War

The Next Great War

BY ALAN CARUBA In the July 24 edition of The Wall Street Journal there was a commentary, “Wanted: Converts to Judaism” by the chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary, Arnold M. Eisen. I thought to myself that this was an extraordinary time to be suggesting conversion to a faith that is literally under attack in Israel and being [...]

Should the Government Tell You What to Eat?

Should the Government Tell You What to Eat?

BY ALAN CARUBA Given the successive scandals and monster laws like Obamacare that have been imposed on Americans, the federal government’s efforts to control and determine what you eat doesn't receive the attention that it should. The ultimate question is whether the government should tell you what to eat and then seek to enforce their views [...]

A Great Plan to Replace the EPA

A Great Plan to Replace the EPA

BY ALAN CARUBA For years now I have been saying that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must be eliminated and its powers given to the fifty states, all of which,have their own departments of environmental protection. Until now, however, there has been no plan put forth to do so. Dr. Jay Lehr has done just that and his plan no doubt [...]

The Nexus of Illegal Drugs and Illegal Immigration

The Nexus of Illegal Drugs and Illegal Immigration

BY ALAN CARUBA All manner of reasons are being offered to explain the influx of thousands of illegal aliens, not the least of which is President Obama’s open invitation to Latin Americans to come here with the promise of becoming citizens at some point. By overloading the southern border, this has opened the doors to criminals and potential [...]

The Nemesis of Agenda21

The Nemesis of Agenda21

BY ALAN CARUBA Watching left-wing organizations lose their wits denouncing conservatives is always fun and particularly if you know one of their targets. In my case, that would be Tom DeWeese, the founder and president of the American Policy Center; the most expert and outspoken opponent of Agenda21 in the nation. In the early 1990s I sent [...]

Obama Encounters an Apex of Anger

Obama Encounters an Apex of Anger

BY ALAN CARUBA Barack Obama has managed to do something one would hardly imagine a President could achieve by the midpoint of his second term. He has managed to anger most segments of the American populace, including those to the far Left who constitute a significant part of his base. It has taken time for most people to reach this [...]

How “Normal” is Bowe Bergdahl?

How “Normal” is Bowe Bergdahl?

BY ALAN CARUBA There are few military crimes worse than desertion to the enemy short of outright treason by giving them aid and comfort. So why is the U.S. Army declaring Sgt. Berghdal (he received a promotion from private first class while being either a Taliban captive or guest) a “normal soldier now”? When one’s entire unit declares [...]

Obamacare Must Be Repealed

Obamacare Must Be Repealed

BY ALAN CARUBA While the issue of immigration is uppermost in people’s minds right now, it is likely at this point halfway through his second term that President Obama will be identified by historians most closely with his signature, namesake legislation, the Affordable Patient Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. They will do so for two [...]
