It’s Not True! : A Message from the American Policy Center

Hello Friend,

It’s Not True!

Too many pro-liberty Americans believe we can’t win – that we can’t stop the Left’s drive to destroy our freedoms.

It’s not true – not if we stand and fight. Victories are taking place across the nation.  In just the past couple of weeks activists have risen up in the property rights fight:

Quitting UN Human Rights Council serves US interests


The UN Human Rights Council (HRC), on the one hand, and human rights, on the other hand, constitute a classic oxymoron, as underlined by the country-membership of the Council.

Moreover, since its establishment in 2006, and just like its predecessor, the UN Commission on Human Rights, the HRC has been dominated by non-democratic regimes, which have been hostile to the US.

What is the definition of civility?

I took my grand kids to the Seacoast Science Center the other day to enjoy the beauty of where I live and give them a day to discover and basically play. It was a great day that ended up at the playground that was more of a ‘Ninja Obstacle Course’ then a playground.

Stopping “War Games” Prematurely: A Costly Mistake

I arrived in Seoul on the same day as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo after the Singapore Summit. In the wake of the meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Pompeo and I had essentially the same task: reassuring our allies.

Of course, he did it with high-level government officials, and I did it unofficially with many contacts who are journalists, business leaders and academics. But they all had at least one thing in common: concerns about President Trump’s announcement that we’d be stopping “war games” in the region.

US interests require Israel on the Golan Heights

US interests in the Middle East and beyond are well-served by a strategically constrained Syria. Historically, Syria has been a tectonic, volatile platform of violent, intolerant and unpredictable Arab/Islamic regional aspirations of grandeur, totally unrelated to Israel’s existence and policies.

Let’s Keep a Strong Economy Growing

“We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are.”

That’s a real headline. And it appeared in The New York Times.

No, that’s not a misprint. The actual New York Times, which has published scathing criticisms of President Trump, was admitting in a June 1 article that the U.S. economy is strong beyond description right now.

The History of our lives as defined by a dishwasher

Lives can be defined in many ways. A photo book, newspaper clippings, home movies, and even the history of our social systems on line can display all of our histories. The other day I was emptying the dishwasher for my wife and noticed there were few dinner dishes and a whole lot of wine and beer glasses. I smiled when I observed this because I knew the last few days had been filled with many friends and thus empty cans and bottles. The one symbol of our lives past that has been ignored because most do not believe it exists is the contents of our dishwashers. All of our dishwashers, the mechanical type and not the human type, can summarize our actions week in and week out.
