DR.GARY WELTON: MEMO TO WASHINGTON - DON’T BOX IN OUR FREEDOM

Today’s gridlock in Washington, between the Republican-controlled Congress and the Democratic administration, has frustrated both the right and the left. In this article, Dr. Gary Welton shares how a novel series by author C. J. Box has helped to shed light on some of the current political frustrations. Welton writes, “I am still undecided on how to vote in November, but I have learned more about the conservative American experience from reading C. J. Box than I have from listening to any debates or watching any commercials.”

DR. RICHARD D. KOCUR: A PRESCRIPTION FOR DISASTER

Yesterday, the CEO of a pharmaceutical company appeared before a House committee to answer questions about price increases on a product—the EpiPen, an auto-injection device used to treat potentially fatal allergic reactions. In Congress, a recent bill seeks to force drug manufactures to rationalize any price increase over 10 percent to the federal government. But is legislation the best solution? Is this a bill that could bring the entire industry dangerously close to government price controls? In this article, Dr. Richard D. Kocur argues that there is an easier fix. He writes, “As any businessperson knows, if you price a product too far above the cost of production you’re inviting competition to enter the market, thereby offering consumers a potentially lower-priced alternative.”

DENNIS PATRICK: IS IT JUST LA NINA TIME AGAIN

“Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink.” So reads a line in Coleridge’s poem “The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner.” The mariner who shot an albatross (a symbol of good fortune) brought misfortune to his ship and crew.

            A contemporary Chicken Little version might be, “Fossil fuels; man-made global warming.”

            Not so fast. What might be other rational explanations for climate variations?

            One well-established weather cycle is the El Nino - La Nina pattern.

SELWYN DUKE: LIBERAL MOTHER PUSHES HER LITTLE SON INTO MASQUERADING AS A GIRL

One of the characteristics of our declining civilization is that, more and more, reality seems like satire. A good example is a recent New York Times article titled “From He to She in First Grade.” Yeah, you guessed it, this is about another boy allowed to masquerade as a girl, aided and abetted by parents and teachers who belong in rubber rooms. 

“Transgenderism” is not a scientifically determined designation but an ideologically determined one, as I explain in-depth here. It is the Lysenkoism of our time, and it will likely be discarded in two or three decades. Until then, sadly, children will continue to be irreparably scarred by what is nothing but a severe form of child abuse.

DR. JOSEPH J. HORTON: BORN THAT WAY? A FALSE HYPOTHESIS

A recently released literature review has created a buzz. Among the issues attracting attention in the paper is the claim that genetics is not the sole determinant of sexual orientation. Does this make the “born that way” hypothesis false? In this article, Dr. Joseph J. Horton details the study and examines how the “born that way hypothesis is important to people on all sides.”

DR. MARK HENDRICKSON: BOOK REVIEW OF TY COBB: A TERRIBLE BEAUTY

In the baseball world, Ty Cobb is perhaps the most controversial player in history. On the field he was a tenacious player and fierce competitor. Cobb’s actions off the field, however, have been reported as less than admirable. But are all of the tales about his antics true? In this book review that first appeared at the Claremont Review of Books, Dr. Mark Hendrickson dives into the new book by Charles Leerhsen (“Ty Cobb: A Terrible Beauty”)—a book that possibly rehabilitates the reputation of a baseball icon. Hendrickson argues that Leerhsen’s book, “may be the most important baseball book in decades

DENNIS PATRICK: FEARING THE GOVERNMENT OF THE COUNTRY YOU LOVE

The rapidly increasing power of bureaucrats controlling our lives should scare the dickens out of Americans. The good news is that more people are coming to recognize the assault by government on their liberty. The bad news is that some of these same people keep looking to government to solve their problems. They keep electing the same congressmen, senators and president that perpetuate the abuse. Apparently some voters don’t have a problem with expansive government programs. Nor do they have a problem with government confiscating wealth for bureaucrats to redistribute.

DR. DAVID J. AYERS: WHAT TIME LEFT OUT OF THE TRANSGENDER MALE PREGNANCY

In the current issue of Time magazine an essay highlights the individual story of a transgender male who recently gave birth to a child. Should Time magazine depict the birthing and nursing experience of a transgender male as a new normal for American families? In this article, Dr. David J. Ayers argues that Time left out many important questions readers may have and subsequently framed the discussion inaccurately. He writes, “Journalists are supposed to ask the questions we cannot or are afraid to. The ones we know reasonable people think about. Can’t we do better than this fawning essay in Time magazine when we are dealing with something of this much consequence to so many people?”

DENNIS PATRICK: HOLLOWING OUT NATIONAL DEFENSE

Formation of America’s future national security policies begs an answer to a very important question. Is it in our national interest to deter aggression and maintain a stable global order?

If the answer is “yes” then a 4 to 5 percent investment of our Gross Domestic Product, as we have seen for the last 70 years, is acceptable.

If the answer is “no,” then America can no longer meet its responsibilities as a leader in the free world. The world will change, and not for the better. America and the many nations that work together with us will certainly be less safe. Radical cuts in defense spending means America must sit on the sidelines and observe the world growing more dangerous until that danger washes over our shores.

The road to military disaster is paved with good intentions. For voters on November 8 a new administration proposing a well-funded national security becomes a critical judgment call.

Voters take note!

SELWYN DUKE: ISLAM AND THE WEST’S DEATH BY “FREEDOM”

The Conseil d’Etat failed to take into account the fact that at present a silent conquest of Western Europe is underway. This conquest finds its source in the Qur’an where one can read that Allah has promised to give to the Muslims as the spoils of war the lands of the Infidels. That’s how sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradawi, one of the leaders of the UOIE (Union of Muslim Organizations in Europe), the French branch of which is the UOIF (Union of Muslim Organizations in France) put it: “With your democratic laws, we will colonize you. With our Koranic laws, we will dominate you.”

DENNIS PATRICK: SECRETARY CLINTON’S RACIAL HISTORY

LBJ: “Lyndon Johnson said the word ‘n***er’ a lot. In Senate cloakrooms and staff meetings, Johnson was practically a connoisseur of the word… Discussing civil rights legislation with men like Mississippi Democrat James Eastland, who committed most of his life to defending white supremacy, he’d simply call it ‘the n***er bill.’” Adam Serwer, MSNBC, 4/12/12

“I’ll have those n***ers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” Lyndon Johnson on Air Force One as told in Ronald Kessler’s 1995 book “Inside the White House.”

GARY EMINETH: WHAT IS THIS ELECTION ABOUT ANYWAY?

This election isn't solely about who gets elected -- although that fact will impact us all. It is about our understanding as Americans as to how things got to where they are today.

That insight will become the framework for addressing the future.

The prophet's words at the beginning have a ring of truth, "we are not saved."
To paraphrase his words (Paraphrase mine) "we are not safe."

Judgment is coming. It's the law of harvest -- we will reap what we sow.

JOSEPH SOBRAN: TWO CHEERS FOR THEOCRACY

[SOBRAN’S THE REAL NEWS OF THE MONTH, February 1999] — I grew up in a theocracy. I didn’t realize it as a boy; in fact I never heard it described that way. The only reason I now know it was a theocracy is that people who want to restore the America of the Fifties — anti-abortion Catholics, the “Christian Right” — are accused of wanting to establish a theocracy.

The “separation of church and state” has been twisted to mean total secularization: whenever the state claims authority over an area of activity, such as education, religion must depart from it. If the federal government decides that the humanity of a human fetus is a “religious” or “theological” question, it forces the states to withdraw their protection from the unborn child.

The godless states of the twentieth century have been notable in their common contempt for human life, deeming millions of deaths a small price to pay for utopia and human “liberation” - which is really the liberation of rulers from higher law. One of these godless states is the current regime of the United States of America, which has effectively repudiated the principles of the Declaration and the Constitution while pretending to honor both.

DENNIS PATRTICK: FOLLOW THE CLINTON FOUNDATION MONEY

An old adage explains a lot when determining the ultimate objective in social and political events.

FOLLOW THE MONEY!

Several news items make it quite easy to follow the money. Let the reader decide.

The Clintons said they would close down the foundation if Hillary became president to avoid a conflict of interest. Why wasn’t there a conflict of interest when she was Secretary of State?

Expert at hiding information with decades of experience, the Clintons are masters of deceit. The above citations are only a small fraction of the available information from open sources. The FBI continues a far-ranging investigation but without conclusion before November. Vote wisely!

SELWYN DUKE: “SEXISM” AT THE OLYMPICS? WHY DO WOMEN’S SPORTS EVEN EXIST?

My, my, there those feminists go, complaining again. This time the whining concerns supposedly “sexist” Olympics coverage. Their problem?

Many journalists are, we’re told, using different language when talking about female athletes than when speaking of male ones. Oh, the humanity! 

Isn’t it a little odd, though, complaining about unequal treatment while supporting a system that’s inherently unequal; namely, having separate and protected tours, leagues and teams for women? It’s a bit like forming a basketball league exclusively for short Jewish guys and then bellyaching that they don’t command the salaries of the NBA stars.

DENNIS PATRICK: MAGIC OF PUSH POLLING

take note of the wide difference in percentage points between two candidates in a given state. A ten to fifteen point spread is suspicious. Not all polls seek the truth and push polling leads the way.

Let there be no doubt that the mainstream media is campaigning for their presidential candidate. Gone are the days of so-called objective reporting. The New York Times admitted as much in a front page article last week. The media objective today is to suppress voter turnout for the opposition.

Let the voter beware.
