Defending New Jersey’s Politicians

Defending New Jersey’s Politicians

BY ALAN CARUBA I'd be surprised to learn that anyone in the Obama and Holder Department of Justice even knows how to spell “justice.” On the same day it announced an indictment of New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez (D) for allegedly taking bribes and engaging in various forms of corruption, it also announced that it would not pursue a [...]

A President, Not a Potentate

A President, Not a Potentate

BY ALAN CARUBA In 2010, before the midterm elections, President Obama said, “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends.” Instead, it was the Democratic Party that got punished as voters rejected its candidates, rendering it some of its biggest losses since the Great Depression. The Republican Party gained 63 [...]

$15 “B” Failure to Store Nuclear Waste

$15 “B” Failure to Store Nuclear Waste

BY ALAN CARUBA "The American people have spent 30 years and $15 billion to determine whether Yucca Mountain would be a safe repository for our nation’s civilian and defense-related nuclear waste.” That’s a quote of Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) reported in the April issue of The Heartland Institute’s Environment & Climate News. Compare [...]

Obama’s Virtual War on Israel

Obama’s Virtual War on Israel

BY ALAN CARUBA This is hardly the best week to demonstrate his intense hatred of Israel, but since he has devoted 18 months to a fruitless and foolish negotiation with Iran, one can understand why Barack Hussein Obama is in a bad mood. His foreign policy “legacy” is close to being flushed down the Iranian toilet. On March 31, the Defense [...]

Don’t be an April ‘Earth Month’ Fool

Don’t be an April ‘Earth Month’ Fool

BY ALAN CARUBA The annual calendar is filled with days and months designated for the purpose of calling attention to some event, personality, or cause. The U.S. celebrates the birthdays of Lincoln and Washington that fall close together. There’s Mother’s and Father’s Day, Labor Day and Veteran’s Day, Valentine’s, Independence Day, [...]

Diet, Gain Weight, Diet, Gain Weight

Diet, Gain Weight, Diet, Gain Weight

BY ALAN CARUBA My Mother taught gourmet cooking, haute cuisine, for three decades in the local adult schools, first just to women and later with courses just for men as they too wanted to learn how to make succulent dishes, delicious sauces, and to bake as well. She also wrote a cookbook, “Cooking with Wine and High Spirits”, as well as one [...]

But What Does the Supreme Leader Say?

But What Does the Supreme Leader Say?

BY ALAN CARUBA What Americans have a hard time understanding is that, for all the Iranian negotiators, the outcome of the nuclear arms deal that the United States is leading all comes down to just one man, Sayyed Ali-Khamenei, otherwise known as the Supreme Leader of Iran. In the 21st century, it is hard to comprehend that a nation could be [...]

Terrifying the Republican Establishment

Terrifying the Republican Establishment

BY ALAN CARUBA Would you vote for a man who openly says he would repeal ObamaCare? Would you vote for a man who openly says he favors a fair tax and wants to abolish the Internal Revenue Service? Would you vote for a man who opposes Obama’s efforts to offer illegal aliens amnesty and promises to secure the borders? Would you vote [...]

The Death Throes of Common Core

The Death Throes of Common Core

BY ALAN CARUBA Americans are learning the hard way that the federal government should not be permitted to impose one-size-fits-all standards to education. It was never intended to play a role in education and the absence of any mention in the Constitution is proof enough that education was intended to be supervised by the states where the [...]

Is Obama Anti-Semitic?

Is Obama Anti-Semitic?

BY ALAN CARUBA President Obama made no secret of his displeasure that Benjamin Netanyahu was reelected to be Israel’s Prime Minister. Only David Ben Gurion, Israel’s first Prime Minister and one of the nation’s founders, served longer. Obama lives in some parallel universe apart from the lessons of history and the realities of what is [...]

The Israelis Send Obama a Message

The Israelis Send Obama a Message

BY ALAN CARUBA When the news of Benjamin Netanyahu’s reelection victory was announced I facetiously posted on my Facebook page that the Israelis had “sent Obama a two-word message and it wasn’t happy birthday.” It took him two days to call and congratulate Bibi. I don’t think we have ever had a President so ignorant of the Middle [...]

Let the Budget Battles Begin

Let the Budget Battles Begin

BY ALAN CARUBA The announcement of a new fiscal budget for the U.S. government always sets the stage for struggles between the spenders and those trying to put some limits on the spending. The spenders usually win because politicians—particularly progressive ones—love to tap the national treasury in order to reward their supporters. As [...]

It’s Not Global Warming, It’s Springtime

It’s Not Global Warming, It’s Springtime

BY ALAN CARUBA After decades of environmental claims that “global warming” would plunge the planet into catastrophic harm to its human and other inhabitants—at the same time blaming humans for causing it—the sheer arrogance and ignorance of these claims always ignores the real power that is represented by the Earth itself and the [...]

Why Moral Values Matter

Why Moral Values Matter

BY ALAN CARUBA "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly [...]

A Pox on Politicians

A Pox on Politicians

BY ALAN CARUBA Nobody likes politicians, but everybody votes for them. Perhaps the most quintessential American theme throughout its history has been the role politicians have played in creating it—we call them our Founding Fathers—and the endless role of those who have wanted to take us in the wrong direction or at least tried to. I [...]

Is John Kerry a Moron?

Is John Kerry a Moron?

BY ALAN CARUBA I can recall John Kerry, Obama’s Secretary of State, from the days he testified to a congressional committee and slandered his fellow soldiers as the spokesman for Veterans Against the Vietnam War in 1971. I was appalled then and my opinion of the man has not changed since those days. I opposed the war, too, but I did not blame [...]

Ferguson is NOT America

Ferguson is NOT America

BY ALAN CARUBA The wounding of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, and earlier in New York City the assassination of two police officers are disturbing events for all Americans as they represent a hostility that threatens a safe, secure society wherever one lives. Shooting police is an invitation to anarchy. That there have been [...]

Obama’s Legacy of Failure

Obama’s Legacy of Failure

BY ALAN CARUBA Is it too soon to begin to sum up President Obama’s “legacy”? Possibly, but after six years we know enough to draw some conclusions. There is much to protest on any given day Obama sits in the Oval Office with all its powers at his disposal. The Constitution granted the executive branch considerable power, particularly [...]

The EPA Thinks You’re Stupid

The EPA Thinks You’re Stupid

BY ALAN CARUBA The folks at the Environmental Protection Agency, starting with a long line of its administrators that now includes Gina McCarthy, think you and the Congress of the United States are stupid. They have been telling lies for so long they can’t imagine that their chokehold on the American economy will ever end. It is, however, [...]

Obama’s Attacks on Religion in America

Obama’s Attacks on Religion in America

BY ALAN CARUBA Americans tend to take the liberties spelled out in the Bill of Rights for granted. This is especially true of freedom of religion in which the First Amendment protects “the free exercise thereof” while at the same time prohibiting “an establishment of religion” to ensure that neither a state nor the federal government [...]
