Free Traders: “Blame America First!”

It appears that Ron Paul supporters are not the only ones who profess Blame America First views. It seems that free traders also advocate such views. But while paulbots attack America’s entire foreign and defense policy, free traders “only” object to any criticism of America’s trade rivals and to any attempt to protect America’s industrial base from unfair competition (dumping). ...

The Left, with the help of nominal ball-less “right-wing” politicians, has managed to destroy the defenses of many Western countries: Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Canada, Britain, and Australia, among other countries.

‘Hayseeds’ bring new vibe to patriotic music

Most songs have a message of some sort, though too often I hear the shallow musings of today’s pop stars and wonder if there’s even a market for artists of substance and intelligence.

    In last week’s column I discussed the 2010 Supreme Court ruling (McDONALD ET AL, v. CITY OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS) upholding the  Second Amendment. The ruling doesn’t matter to leftists, neither do statistics proving law-abiding citizens with guns deter crime.  The Left is determined to shoot the Second Amendment and let innocents become victims to those who will always ...

Sun Tzu’s Art of War is being misread and lied about

The notoriety and readership of Sun Tzu’s ancient military treatise, The Art of War, is increasing in the United States. But as this happens, his treatise is now, alas, meeting the same fate as other great works, including the Bible and Clausewitz’s On War: some people quote some short passages out of context, misinterpret them, and use them to advance ...

Laser-like focus on the economy?

Il Duce Obama

In January, the Obama Administration announced a renewed laser-like focus on jobs and the economy. Where is it? President Obama has been pushing gun control, talking about sequestration as if it were doomsday and has now pivoted to immigration reform while the economy struggles to recover under the weight of an overgrown government. Recent Gallup polling shows that Americans top ...
