The Lie Vs The TRUTH
by Trevor Payne
February 21, 2018

Pg 148 A believer must learn the more advanced and perhaps more formidable and deeper lesson of abhorring his life, not only must we hate the sinful nature which comes from Adam but also the natural vitality upon which we now rely for our living. We must be willing to deny the good which is produced by the flesh as well as the evil of the flesh. Do not merely forsake all sins; in addition, deliver up this life of sin to death. . . . We need to be released from everything natural as well as everything sinful.

The Reign of King Saul – Kingscalendar Chronology
by R.P. BenDedek
February 21, 2018

If Saul was something and one years old when he became king, and reigned something and two years, he will have been either 21 or 31 yrs old when he commenced his reign (in order to qualify as young and handsome), and reigned at least 32 or 42 yrs, to have left a 40 year old son.

The Trouble with Tariffs
by Ed Feulner
Feb 21, 2018

Last month in Montreal, Trump’s trade adviser, Ambassador Robert Lighthizer, renewed the president’s threat that the United States could withdraw from NAFTA because in its current form, it is “really not a good agreement for the United States.” But that’s the key point — in its current form. When NAFTA was first proposed, I supported it enthusiastically. As a strong proponent of freedom, I know the power of open trade. And NAFTA delivered. But that was 25 years ago.

Sustainable Development Code for Reorganizing Human Society
by Tom DeWeese
Feb 21, 2018

Does this sound like something your local planners may have said? “The chaotic growth of cities will be replaced by a dynamic system of urban settlement…The region is formed by the economic interdependence of its development, from the industrial complex to the industrial region. The region has a single system of transportation, a centralized administration, and a united system of education and research.” This was written in 1968 by Alexei Gutnov. He was a Soviet Russian architect writing in a book titled The Ideal Communist City.

Believe nothing what you hear
By Jim Fabiano
Feb 21, 2018

Social media has taken over the task of reporting what is going on in the world from ‘normal’ media outlets. This is a fact. I implore my students and my fellow citizens to question all and everything they read or even see on this media outlet. We all have the power to do this. If a non-person authors an article or video don’t believe it or at least question its authenticity. If the piece you are reading is bi-lined by a group, don’t believe it. If the piece you are reading is bi-lined by a person check this person out.

A Palestinian refugee camp has been under siege for more than 1,660 days. Hundreds of the camp residents have been killed, while tens of thousands have been forced to flee from their homes. Those who have remained in the camp — mostly the elderly, women and children — live in unspeakable sanitary conditions and drink polluted water… The name of the camp is Yarmouk, and it is located about five miles from the Syrian capital of Damascus.

Vote of confidence in Israel’s brainpower
by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger
Feb 21, 2018

Israel has attracted over 300 global high tech companies due to its brain-power, which has been enhanced by a “do-or-die” state of mind – militarily, economically, educationally, agriculturally, irrigation-wise and balance of trade-wise, yielding game-changing, ground-breaking solutions and technologies.

Israeli bombing Syria enhanced US national security
by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger
Feb 18, 2018

Moreover, the lessons of the Israeli military operation upgraded the capabilities of the US Air Force and the US’ posture of deterrence, exposed the vulnerabilities of advanced Soviet military systems – which were deemed impregnable until then – undermined the regional and global Soviet strategic stature, tilted the global balance of power in favor of the US and prevented the loss of many American lives.

Zoning Out on Free Speech
By Ed Feulner
Feb 18, 2018

Students raised in politically correct bubbles have arrived on campus blissfully unaware that anyone disagrees with their worldview. So when, say, a speaker shows up to criticize affirmative action, or pro-life students begin handing out flyers on abortion, they can’t handle it. I don’t mean they offer a counterview. That would be fine, of course. Everyone’s free-speech rights would be honored in that case. No, they form mobs. They yell, shriek and shout down those with whom they disagree. They attack them, both verbally and physically. “Triggered” by the horror of a different point of view, they have a meltdown.

He wants it and he wants it now
By Jim Fabiano
February 13, 2018

Mr. Trump wants a parade. Not to celebrate great victories but rather to simply have a parade celebrating Mr. Trump. He has reportedly informed the Pentagon and his (?) generals to organize a parade for the 4th of July. Even though our volunteer military men and women didn’t train for a spectacle and shouldn’t have to be forced to do so. Even though an unnecessary expense to our economy while suffering through the worse deficits and debts of our nation’s history is unconscionable. The only reason is he wants it and he wants it now.

In 2015, Ukraine’s president signed a law whose critics say stifles debate on the historical record of World War II and whitewashes local perpetrators of the Holocaust. The Baltic nations of Lithuania and Latvia were pioneers in nationalist legislation that limits discourse about the Holocaust in their territories.

A Rising Tide of Economic Freedom
By Ed Feulner
February 9, 2018

So where does the U.S. fall on this year’s Index? Our global ranking is No. 18. True, that’s one slot lower than last year, but notice our score: 75.7 (on a 0-100 scale, with 100 being the freest). That’s 0.6 points better than last year’s. That may not sound like much, but it’s our first improved score in the last four years.

US Palestinian policy – water or gasoline?
by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger
Feb 8, 2018

Contrary to previous US presidents and Secretaries of State, since 1993, Trump does not ignore the significance of the K-12 Palestinian hate-curriculum – which has been shaped since 1993/94 by Mahmoud Abbas – as the most authentic reflection (much more than Palestinian statements for Western consumption) of the Palestinian Authority’s long-term strategy and worldview, and a most effective production-line of terrorists.

UNRWA does not try or want to try to resettle the refugees, nor help the refugees move forward with their lives in a new host country, where some are already 3rd and 4th generation UN welfare recipients. UNRWA maintains the refugee definition, even for those living in refugee camps within the Palestinian Authority. UNRWA has 4X more staff members than UNHCR, while UNRWA deals with 6X fewer refugees.

Foolish Western Souls: Empty, Negative and Guilt-ridden
by R.P. BenDedek
Feb 6, 2017

Up until the time that Trump became President of the USA I had merely considered the progressive liberals to be somewhat mentally deficient! They were like little children who run in one direction whilst their head is turned in another. WHAM! If you have ever had kids then you know what I am talking about! Once Trump won the election however, I began to see the far left in a new light. I no longer saw them as immature adults but as what they are – empty, negative, contentious, violent, anger filled, soulless individuals who embrace victimhood, take no responsibility for their own actions, and who engage in virtue signaling in order to make themselves feel good.

We invited him in
By Jim Fabiano
Feb 4, 2018

“Oh shut up, silly nation,” said our new President with a grin.
“You knew damn well I was a snake before you supported me”
“I promised you better times.”
“I promised you would be great again.”
“You will be more prosperous and taken care of,” laughed Mr. Trump.

Trump’s State of the Union bolsters allies’ confidence
by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger
Feb 3, 2018

President Trump’s critical and urgent challenge is to reconnect the US national and homeland security policy with the 1,400-year-old unpredictable, violent, treacherous and threatening Middle East reality, and disconnect from former President Obama’s worldview, which window-dressed the volcanic, anti-Western Middle East reality to accord the principles of peaceful-coexistence and the struggle for human rights and economic prosperity.

A Political History for the Young — and the Young at Heart
By Ed Feulner
Feb 2, 2018

Arnie is one of those few political strategists who was into politics not for money or power, but ideals. He encountered great minds such as Milton Friedman and Bill Buckley, with whom long ago I helped start The Philadelphia Society, an obscure group of professors and activist-intellectuals. Arnie, who became one of our youngest members and later served with me as a trustee, now outs the “PhillySoc” as the apex of Hillary’s “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.”

The Articles Google Won’t Let You Read
by R.P. BenDedek
February 1, 2018

I pulled all of its ads from my website back in 2013 after a company contacted me and pleaded with me to sever the live link in one of my articles to their site because Google had threatened their livelihood if I did not! Google threatened their customer to get them to make me remove my link to their site! That is just plain wrong in anyone’s book. Above everything else, Google is a hypocrite! I know this because I lived in China for 15 years and followed carefully the lead up to Google’s withdrawal from the mainland because it did not like the Communist Government’s dictatorial behavior. BUT GOOGLE IS DICTATORIAL – IT IS A HYPOCRITE!

American Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, saying that the PA appeared to be unprepared to pursue peace, adding that the US was not interested in ‘chasing after’ PA leaders in a bid to reboot talks between the PA and Israel.

Arbor Day (Tu Bishvat) Guide for the Perplexed, 2018
by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger
January 29, 2018

Judaism stipulates four New Years, one of them is the New Year for the trees, Tu Bishvat (Arbor Day), the 15th day of the month of Shvat (January 31, 2018). The zodiac of Shvat is Aquarius – the water carrier (bucket in Hebrew). Tu Bishvat highlights the rejuvination and blooming of trees and the Jewish people.

Make America Bored Again
By Jim Fabiano
January 26, 2018

Mr. President, you won. You are our President for the next four years. You have control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate. You have people in our Justice Department agreeing with what you are trying to accomplish. The Executive Branch is totally behind everything you are trying to do. Why are you putting the American people through unnecessary stress? What is your end game?

The Shamrak Report January 23, 2018
by Steven Shamrak
January 24, 2018

The PLO Executive Committee was directed to “revoke recognition of Israel until it recognizes the State of Palestine on the 1967 borders and reverses the decision to annex East Jerusalem and expand settlements.” The Council rejected any recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. The Central Council renewed its decision to stop security coordination in all its forms. It made it abundantly clear that the leadership headed by the PA leader Mahmoud Abbas has no interest whatsoever in peace, let alone direct negotiations with or recognition of the Jewish State of Israel.

Taming the Tuition Tiger
By Virginia Foxx & Ed Feulner
January 24, 2018

Easy access to federal student aid has enabled colleges to raise tuition profligately over the past several decades. When combined with generous loan forgiveness policies, which must be paid for by taxpayers, the result has been a three-fold increase in the cost of college since the mid-1980s. Economist Richard Vedder found that, had tuition and fees at colleges and universities grown at a rate similar to the growth prior to 1978 – before there was significant federal subsidization of tuition – college costs at state universities would be closer to just $5,000 today.

Israel’s sustained economic growth
by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger
January 22, 2018

Israel’s national debt-to-GDP ratio declines, systematically, from 70.6% in 2008, 69.6% in 2010, 67.1% in 2012 and 64.8% in 2014 to 60.6% in 2016 (Globes Business Daily, January 12, 2018). Israel’s exports are challenged by the appreciation of Israel’s Shekel, reflecting the robust performance of Israel’s economy (e.g., keeping inflation at 1%-3%; 4.1% unemployment, rising GDP and GDP per capita, etc.). In 2017, Israel’s exports surged, for the first time, beyond $100BN ($43BN hightech) – a 5% increase over 2016.

Former Fiancée of Amb. Chris Stevens Killed in ‘Battle of Benghazi’, Launches TV Talkfest “TIME TO GET REAL WITH LYDIE DENIER”
by Jim Kouri
Jan 21, 2018

While the face and name of Lydie Denier is known to many as a first-rate actress and stunning model, Denier is practically being ignored by the U.S. news media because she was at one time the fiancée of Ambassador Chris Stevens. Yes, that Chris Stevens: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “friend” who was left to die in 2012 at a diplomatic mission in one of the world’s most dangerous cities, Benghazi, Libya. What is truly astounding is the news media’s failure to cover the reaction of family members, love ones and friends to Ambassador Chris Stevens’ murder. And the sad and angering fact that reporters never got in touch with that someone – Lydie Denier — who knew Amb. Stevens as a best friend, a lover and a former betrothed.

The Cosmetology Cops: A Case of Government Overreach
By Ed Feulner
January 19, 2017

“A dozen years ago, they swooped down on a 23-year-old Glendale woman who was braiding the hair of African-Americans. The cosmetology cops informed Essence that she’d have to get a license to do that which she’d been doing since she was 13 years old. “To get that license, she would have to take 1,600 hours of classes at a state-approved cosmetology school, paying tuition of $10,000 or more to learn everything from how to cut and curl to how to manicure and massage. Everything, that is, but how to braid hair.”

The Israel air strike Saturday night, Jan. 13, in the southern Gaza Strip was aimed at a terror tunnel running 180m into Israel that Hamas was building under the Kerem Shalom crossing through which convoys of goods pass from Israel to the Gaza Strip. It also ran into Egyptian territory under the Rafah border between Gaza and Sinai. (Financed by anti-Semitic international bigots!)

It’s Time to Bring the Southern Poverty Law Center to Justice
by Tom DeWeese
January 16, 2018

The second reason the SPLC is a dangerous threat to American freedom is its so-called “Hate List.” Each year, the SPLC updates its list of “extremist” groups and individuals it declares to be dangerous. Does the list include Black Lives Matter, ICIS, ANTIFA, or any of the forces that have taken credit for opening fire on crowds attending public events? Nope. SPLC’s list of hate groups are those who oppose Obamacare and NAFTA, are concerned about the economy, and perhaps stockpile food to prepare for possible bad economic times. These are “Right Wing Extremists.” The list goes on to include people like Stewart Rhodes, founder of the Oath Keepers and Senator Rand Paul. A few years ago it included Dr. Ben Carson, now HUD Secretary. The list also includes nearly any conservative and Christian organizations that advocate limited government or Christian teachings or government adherence to the Constitution.

The toughest part of winter is the capacity to survive it
by Jim Fabiano
January 10, 2018

Now that my outside yard looks like the Alaskan Tundra my paper can be found anywhere on this side of Route One. During the days of reasonable weather two plastic bags usually double wrapped my paper. Now during the cold and wintry conditions of our present time the paper is simply wrapped in a rubber band. I wonder if the concept of what the plastic bag is supposed to do is foreign to the carriers.

Global Warming and Bomb Cyclones: Some Cold Facts
By Ed Feulner
January 9, 2018

See, it’s a “climate crisis” now. But it’s hard to blame him for trying some rebranding. After all, prediction after prediction has come to naught. But no matter: Like other Doomsday prophets, Gore just acts like the last missed deadline didn’t happen and comes up with a new one. Which is why it’s important to remind ourselves of what Gore has said in the past. Consider, for example, how he said global warming would cause the north polar ice cap to be completely free of ice within five years. When did he say that? Nine years ago.

The PA asks Israel to increase power supply to Gaza after rocket attacks. The request came on a day in which Gaza terrorists launched three separate mortar and rocket attacks on Jewish communities in southern Israel — the fourth attack this week. It also comes one day after the Palestinian Authority claimed the ‘Unified Jerusalem‘ law passed this week by the Knesset was a “declaration of war” (The PA wants to reward Hamas for attacking Israel, using the enemy’s electricity – isn’t that a bit odd? Israel must wage war against its enemies seriously!)

No foreign aid to Palestinians – a US interest!
by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger
January 8, 2018

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has resolved and settled – since 1945 – the refugee status of almost 100MN refugees throughout the globe with 6,400 employees. In contrast, UNRWA – which was established in 1949 as a 2-3 year relief agency – has perpetuated and misrepresented the refugee status of the 320,000 1948 Palestinian refugees, employing 30,000 people.

A man and his snow blower versus the rest of the world
by Jim Fabiano
January 7, 2018

When you’re shoveling the snow a snow blower seems like a great idea until you spend $1,800 on one and discover the dirty little secret about snow blowers – that you expend about the same amount of energy getting them to start as you would shoveling 20 feet of driveway.
