DR. EARL TILFORD: WAR -  A MATTER OF SEMANTICS

Today, ISIS’s ultimate goal is the destruction of America and the establishment of a global caliphate. If ISIS’s jihadists are not stopped, their path can easily be predicted. Initially they are targeting regimes in Damascus and Baghdad. From there it’s on to Amman and Cairo, Dubai, the wealthy Persian Gulf countries and Riyadh. Israel, seemingly abandoned by the United States, will be overrun despite its nuclear arsenal. Simultaneously, or shortly thereafter, the caliphate will use subversion and terrorism to consume European social democracies.

DENNIS PATRICK: ARE YOU A LIBERAL?

So how can you tell if you are a liberal? Political party affiliation does not help. There are liberal and conservative Democrats just as there are liberal and conservative Republicans. Calling oneself an independent doesn’t help, either. An independent is still inclined to lean liberal or conservative or a mixture of both.

There are ways to measure a person’s tendency toward liberalism. Review the following array of beliefs of modern day liberals. For every statement with which you agree, give yourself one point. The more points you acquire, the greater your tendency to think like a liberal. Here goes.

SELWYN DUKE: LIBERAL BBC ASKS, “IS SPORT SEXIST?” WHILE PROMOTING INEQUALITY

The reason why heavyweight boxers have always received more money and exposure (satisfied the market more) than lightweights is because the heavyweight world champion is the world champion. This is the same reason men’s professional sports command greater revenue and exposure than athletic arenas for juniors, the handicapped or collegians — or for women. The best male athletes are the best athletes. Other sports categories exist to provide other people with opportunities to compete, have fun and build character. They are not jobs programs.

The truth is that not just sport but all of nature’s and man’s world is a place defined by varying degrees of quality, not equality. This is no doubt why the Bible barely mentions the notion, except when referring to weights and measures. It’s also why I tend to doubt that anyone who has ever pondered equality deep

DENNIS PATRICK: SEXUAL ASSAULT IN THE MILITARY

There currently appears a rather lengthy article in “GQ” (formerly “Gentleman’s Quarterly”) titled “Son, Men Don’t Get Raped.” The article opens with a few eye-opening statements. Sexual assaults in the military are becoming more common. More than half the victims of sexual assault are men. “GQ” alleges that 38 men are sexually assaulted every day. More military men are assaulted than women. The article further alleges that Pentagon figures indicate that almost 14,000 men were sexually assaulted in 2012.

For the record, new recruits have never been allowed to question the authority of their superiors. Even seasoned subordinates seldom challenge the boss. There has always been a power structure in every military organization from time immemorial. If the military culture itself were at fault, then how do you account for the spike in male-on-male sexual assaults if not for the fact that sexual norms and mores are being forcibly changed? In fact, how do you account for an increase in male-on-female assaults if not for the same reason? All military organizations are authoritarian to the core. If this disintegrates, there is no military – period.

SELWYN DUKE: IF YOU WANT TO GET INTO A REALLY BIG WAR, ELECT A LIBERAL

Why is this? Because liberals live lives of rationalization, something debating them reveals. You can make an airtight point and a leftist not only won’t cede it, he’ll disgorge a completely absurd denial of reality. Of course, that’s what a rationalization is: when you lie to yourself, bend reality for yourself.

DELEGATE BOB MARSHALL: WHY “GAY” GROUPS SHOULD NOT BE IN ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE

Some contemporary American Catholics falsely think that "tolerance" is exercised by maintaining indifference towards ideas, opinion or even error, or holding that all points of view are equal. For a Church authority to embrace political correctness at such a time will have consequences which extend far beyond the parade route.

DENNIS PATRICK: EMP AND THE PERIL OF “NUCLEAR CONTAINMENT”

It is very conceivable that two to three nuclear air bursts in space over the US could essentially take down the power grid and entire communications system of the United States. After that, an opponent could leisurely orchestrate further attacks. 

There is very good reason to halt Iran’s and North Korea’s nuclear program and missile development. The United States should be focusing intently on hardening against an EMP attack. Forget the global warming malarkey.

SALLY MORRIS:  SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE

And this president has been working overtime to destroy them ever since.  He’s not the first.  White liberal Democrats got in the game first, beginning with the antebellum traffickers , and gaining lots of ground under the likes of LBJ (all with non-white support).  His programs set in stone the racial inequalities he privately approved.

JOE SOBRAN: DARK AGES, NEW MORALITY

Even the most progressive-minded people are beginning to realize that the New Morality has been a disaster, even on its own terms.   It has bred a generation of savages whom it is hard to blame but necessary somehow to control. The surest of social controls, an inner sense of honor, has been denied them by paternal neglect.

DR. PAUL KENGOR: A HIGH SCHOOL CURRICULUM THAT TEACHES THE TRUTH ABOUT COMMUNISM - A Q&A

Too many Americans, from high school to college and beyond, lack basic knowledge about the history of communism in the 20th century. They are unaware of the crimes and horrors of communism, despite the ideology’s 100 million victims in the last century alone. To combat this unfortunate reality, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (a congressionally recognized organization) has released an important resource for high school students, “Communism: Its Ideology, Its History, Its Legacy.” This curriculum, developed by Dr. Lee Edwards and Dr. Paul Kengor, is intended for public, private, and home schools across the country and features nine key lessons about the individuals and events central to the history of 20th century communism.

But there is nothing “JV” about ISIS’s methods. We have seen them before, in different clothing: beheadings, impaling, suicide attacks, dying for a higher cause (this time for Allah to establish a caliphate instead of for a Mikado to establish an empire), boundless contempt for others, and commitment to a way of war that, like “Bushido,” resembles a death cult.

DR. GARY WELTON: CELL PHONES WHILE DRIVING: SHOULD THE STATE HOUSE DECIDE

Even if it were true that cell phones “cause” these accidents, there is no way to measure how many potential accidents were avoided because of cell phones. It is not sufficient to consider the added risks associated with cell phone use; one must also consider the possibility of added benefits of cell phone use.

In this article that first appeared at The Daily Caller, Dr. Tracy Miller examines nearly 70 years of economic data and points out that, “Over the first five years of Obama’s presidency, the U.S. economy grew more slowly than during any five-year period since just after the end of World War II.”
