DENNIS PATRICK: THEY SCREAM - DEATH TO ISRAEL!

Israel’s war today is really with Iran. Hamas and Hezbollah serve as Iran’s proxies. As Iran continues testing the resolve of the West, their ultimate target is not Israel. It is America. Eliminating the Jewish state is only a stepping stone.

An increasing number of states, particularly through the Islamic-dominated United Nations, resolutely reject any legitimate self-defense measures Israel adopts – specifically forward and active defenses. Meanwhile, Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah and much of the Islamic world call for death to Israel. The cry is echoed by Muslim populations throughout Europe.

What is Israel to do?

STEVE CATES: N.D. COMMON CORE….SYSTEMIC REFORM TROJAN HORSE?

As I became aware of the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in North Dakota an interesting phenomenon became apparent. The supporters of Common Core want to talk about only “The standards”. At the March 27, 2014 Bismarck-Mandan Chamber of Commerce meeting billed to examine the “facts and fallacies of Common Core” the proponents would talk of nothing except “the standards” and the beauty of those standards which I have come to characterize using the descriptors of “unicorns, pixy dust, rainbows, and butterflies."

What the North Dakota DPI neglects to mention in any way is that as a condition of adopting the beautiful “Standards” top-to-bottom, side-to-side education changes are underway. Why does no one supporting Common Core talk about this? Are education leaders not telling the Governor, the legislators, the principals, administrators, teachers and the citizens about the scope of Common Core? It does not seem so odd when you understand the substance and extent of those reforms. Are we dealing here with the COMMON CORE TROJAN HORSE, which is a complete, state wide SYSTEMIC EDUCATION REFORM? Are Common Core supporters silent ….for good reason …. on purpose?

DR. PAUL KENGOR: KAL 007 AND MH17 ... A PRESIDENTIAL RESPONSE

Nearly 31 years ago, a Korean passenger airliner was shot down. The recent downing of Malaysian flight 17 is strikingly similar. In this fascinating article that first appeared at The American Spectator, Dr. Paul Kengor examines President Reagan’s initial reaction to the news of KAL 007 and points out that Reagan’s response is worth studying and emulating.

STEVE CATES: N.D. COMMON CORE – LIBERAL CONTROLLED…IN SECRET…BY DESIGN - PART I

After “Systemic Reform” of North Dakota’s education system to the Common Core model and structure, education policy will be almost entirely beyond the control of the state’s citizens, as the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium will ALWAYS be dominated by either 9 (7 being of the 10 most liberal states in America) or as many as 14 Democrat/Liberal states versus 6 or 7 Republican/Conservative states. The PRIVATE consortium whose rules will be constantly changing and which will always make decisions beyond the scrutiny of North Dakota citizens by design of it’s governance structure.

JOHN TRANDEM: WOULD ND LEGISLATOR SUPPORT THE RIGHT TO KILL UNBORN HOMOSEXUALS?

Representative Josh Boschee, D-44 appeared on June 19th on KXJB's 6:30 POV with Chris Berg to participate in a discussion about the recent lawsuit challenging North Dakota's definition of marriage. During the interview he was asked a question by a viewer suggesting that his credentials as a human-rights advocate are questionable in that he voted against all pro-life legislation including HB-1305, which bans abortion for the purposes of sex-selection or genetic abnormality.

Boschee's vote suggests that he supports the right of parents to choose to abort children who are determined to be homosexual should such a test ever become available.

DENNIS PATRICK: VALERIE “RASPUTIN” JARETT

Jarrett’s influence extends to all executive departments and agencies and beyond. Everyone in Obama’s administration bows to Jarrett.

Here are three examples. Under Obamacare, Jarrett pushed for the Health and Human Services mandate requiring all religious groups and believers to fund abortion drugs and contraception. This included institutional churches such as the Roman Catholic Church. Vice President Joe Biden and Obama Chief of Staff Bill Daley advised against the policy but lost out to Jarrett.

In another example Jarrett advised Obama on three occasions to cancel the mission to take out Osama bin Laden. Three times Obama cancelled the mission.

Jarrett is urging Obama to back a 2016 presidential candidate that will reinforce his legacy by continuing to support his policies. That person is not Hillary Clinton. Jarrett has been meeting with Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) and urging Obama to support her nomination for president. Keep in mind that she successfully advised Obama to appoint Van Jones as “green jobs czar,” Mark Lloyd as “chief diversity officer” within the Federal Communications Commission and Cass Sunstein as White House “regulatory czar.”

DR. DANIEL BROWN: PRIVACY BATTLES: AS OLD AS THE OLD TESTAMENT

As a young student, I dismissed concerns about government intrusions on individual privacy with the smug statement, “If you’re not doing anything wrong, you don’t have anything to worry about.” I find the vast majority of the current millennial generation with whom I interact on the college campus ascribe to that same philosophy.

DR. MARVIN FOLKERTSMA: PRESIDENT OBAMA’S ENVIRONMENTAL PURITY AGENCY

It gets worse. In “the most breathtaking power grab I’ve seen in a long time,” according to Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey, the EPA proposed rules that would extend its jurisdiction over the nation’s “intermittent and ephemeral streams and wetlands,” generated by occasional wet seasons, or simply when it rains. Careful! That pond in your backyard could be toxic! Same with ditches and streams that are miles away from navigable waterways. This extension of control over private property and citizens’ everyday lives is breathtaking. And in spite of a recent Supreme Court decision curtailing the agency’s powers, the EPA’s proclivities remain clear.

CHARLES G. MILLS: IRAQ - WHAT TO DO NOW

We thought we could steer the Iraqis into a form of government like that of Europe and North America; not surprisingly, we failed. Finally, instead of withdrawing in an orderly fashion, President Obama, who understands nothing about foreign policy, simply pulled the plug virtually overnight and opened the door to far greater evils.

DENNIS PATRICK: ALTERNATIVE TO ILLEGAL ALIEN LEGISLATION

Building a fence around your house controls access to your property. You control who enters, who eats, who sleeps and who uses the facilities. The same is true of our nation. 

South Korea has had a fence for 50 years to thwart North Korean infiltrators. South Korea’s experience has been a success with very few North Koreans penetrating the barrier.

Concrete barriers blocking approaches to our federal buildings and military installations are a standard feature in thwarting truck bombs.

If fences don’t work, why is the White House surrounded by a fence?

No barrier is fail-safe. A fence may not be one-hundred percent effective all the time, but it will slow the flood of illegal immigrants to a controllable trickle. After that, discussion can be opened as to what to do with the 11 million illegals already here. Many options may be considered legislatively once the border is sealed.

One Congressman has suggested a million-dollar prize for the person who can recover Lois Lerner's "lost" emails. That person will need it, because he'll never eat lunch in this town again, and the IRS will harass him, his extended family, and his friends forever. He might even be risking his life.

DENNIS PATRICK: ISLAM AND THE WEST - AN HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE

This review of the history of Islamic confrontation with the West is not to condemn Muslim people. It is to condemn the spirit and motivation to conquer and subjugate other cultures.

The fight for Islamic dominance over 1300 years has not gone well for Muslims. Nevertheless, the universal longing, kept alive in the education of Muslim children for a great leader, or caliph, continues in the attempt to set right the perceived historic wrong. The longed-for resurrection of the glory of Islam will be achieved by the defeat of Western dominance and the worldwide imposition of full sharia – Islamic law.
