DENNIS PATRICK: THE ANARCHISTS AMONG US

In tandem with the anarchists, today’s news media serves the purpose of agitprop – agitating propaganda. During the Cold War the Communists were quite skilled at using propaganda (fake news?) to agitate mobs into sympathy for their cause. The Communists were great at creating terrific “optics.” Today, the strong anti-Trump attitude shared across the spectrum of the mainstream press is a natural fit for agitprop activities. The anarchists do the behind-the-scenes legwork and the media provides the call to action.

DR. GARY SCOTT SMITH: WILL THE REAL DONALD TRUMP PLEASE STAND UP

Last week President Donald Trump spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. Much of the media coverage of the event focused on Trump’s critique of the low ratings of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “The New Celebrity Apprentice.” But that wasn’t all the president talked about. In this article, presidential scholar Dr. Gary Scott Smith reviews Trump’s entire speech and asks: What did Trump say that provides insights into his own faith?

SELWYN DUKE: HOW TO DRAIN THE JUDICIAL SWAMP

The Supreme Court was only meant to be supreme among courts. Instead, in a government supposedly of, by and for the people, five lawyers can determine what law means for 320 million Americans.

With Trump poised to transform the SCOTUS, conservatives may say that now isn’t the time to question its power. But Republican judicial nominees have often disappointed. Moreover, draining the swamp is fine, but if we want the right kind of governmental revolution, perhaps we should start by listening to the revolutionaries who created our government.

DR. JOHN SPARKS: JUDGE NEIL GORSUCH - A WORTHY SCALIA SUCCESSOR

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump announced his judicial nomination for the Supreme Court: Judge Neil Gorsuch. Many conservative pundits believe this to be a marvelous selection. But who is Judge Gorsuch? And how has he ruled in the past? In this comprehensive review, the Center for Vision & Values’ constitutional scholar, Dr. John A. Sparks, thoroughly examines Gorsuch’s history on judicial philosophies, religious liberty, and right to life issues. Sparks observes that Gorsuch “possesses sterling credentials and a judicial demeanor and temperament. Despite a quiet manner, he is a judge who values ‘courage.’”

DR. CALEB VERBOIS: FAKE NEWS, EXECUTIVE ORDERS, AND IMMIGRATION

Nearly every day we hear discussions about media bias in the United States. Is it sincerely just bias or is something larger happening, something like: Bad reporting and myths? If so, are these myths influencing how citizens view policy? In this article, Dr. Caleb Verbois examines the current fervor over President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily halting immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries and reducing the number of total refugees to the United States. Verbois argues that the biggest issue is not the policy but rather the “real story is how badly our professional story tellers in the media have botched the truth.”

RICHARD D. KOCUR: REPEAL AND REPLACE WITH EMPOWERMENT AND CONTROL

A few hours after being sworn in as America’s 45th president, Donald Trump signed an executive order directed at the Health and Human Services agency to minimize the financial burden of Obamacare on Americans, states, insurers, and healthcare providers. This is the start of “repealing” the law. But what happens next? What will “replace” actually entail? In this article, Richard D. Kocur looks at the current healthcare situation and argues, “The key to successful healthcare reform for millions of Americans impacted by Obamacare lies in individual empowerment and control over their own healthcare choices.”

DENNIS PATRICK: DEMOCRATS IN THE WILDERNESS

The fact is that the Democrat Party, liberals and progressives are in the wilderness with no vision of a pathway out. Only old white folks hold leadership positions in the party. These old white folks are using the same tired old playbook of failed strategies. The Democrats have not developed depth of leadership with up-and-coming young people. That speaks volumes about their enduring denial.

Sad.

SELWYN DUKE: TRUMP VS. THE “ISLAMIC CONQUEST OF THE WEST”

And the calculation is simple: If one million Muslim migrants enter a nation over time and just 1/10th of one percent are or will become terrorists, that’s 1,000 dangerous jihadists. Are you willing to bet, your life, that this estimate is liberal and not conservative?

Yet as dangerous as terrorists are, there’s a bigger picture here, a deeper con being perpetrated by the Arab world via the mass migrations. As Zahran warned, “I have to be honest; you read Arab magazines and Arab newspapers [and] they are talking about, ‘Good job! Now we’re going to conquest [sic] Europe.’ So it’s not even a secret.”

Zahran called this process “the soft Islamic conquest of the West” and noted that what Muslims “couldn’t do in the last 20 years, now the West is doing for us for free — and even [is] paying for it.”

GARY EMINETH: BETSY DEVOS: CLEARLY A CHOICE FOR CHOICE

President Trump's nominee for Secretary of Education is clearly a choice for choice. Betsy DeVos stands firmly committed to the expansion of opportunities for a quality education to every child in America. She has a history of engagement with all the moving parts involved in the fulfillment of improving education.

First and foremost is a belief in parents and families to advocate for their children.

DENNIS PATRIRCK: HE IS GONE AND THAT IS GOOD

He is gone and none too soon. Former White House occupant Barack Obama flew off into the western sky Friday afternoon leaving behind the carnage of a leftist ideologue. As expected, Red Star babies threw a hissy fit as only the spoiled self-centered sycophants they are.

Obama may be an “ex” but he isn’t leaving town. He will linger down the street from the White House in Washington, DC in hopes of resurrecting a leaderless and decimated Democrat Party. If the Democrats are to compete in the midterm elections they will need leadership. As Obama lingers in Washington, he will receive a tutorial in true leadership by Donald J. Trump.

SELWYN DUKE: THE WOMEN’S MARCH AND THE REAL DEPLORABLES

Seeking rights without character is like seeking health without nourishment. Washington himself observed, "Human rights can only be assured among a virtuous people” while fellow founder Samuel Adams warned that “public liberty will not long survive the total extinction of morals." The DC vixens-cum-vice peddlers should take note.

Fortunately, there are millions more women making history by, every day, molding the next generation to be well behaved — and to not mistake boorishness for bravery and sexual snake oil for sophistication.

DR. CALEB VERBOIS: A NEVER TRUMPERS WISH-LIST FOR TRUMPS FRIST 100 DAYS

Tomorrow, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States. Trump will be entering the White House in a time when the country appears to be deeply divided and with an international landscape that is fraught with peril. In this article, Dr. Caleb Verbois asks: What will Trump do with his presidency? Verbois argues that it will take tact, diplomacy, and courage to move the country forward and he offers five policy suggestions for Trump’s first 100 days.

DENNIS PATRICK: GOING COLD TURKEY – OR, HOW BIRDS SURVIVE WINTER

What better way to help our feathered friends than with food? Different seed attracts different birds. Finches and redpolls like their thistle seed. Nuthatches and chickadees like their sunflower seeds and suet. Most satisfactory for many birds is an all-purpose mix of sunflower seed, safflower, millet, peanuts and cracked corn which should attract the broadest variety of birds.

A value-added feature of feeding birds is that birds busy eating at a feeder will attract other hungry birds. The avian welfare system knows no bounds. Year-round feeding ensures a steady stream of visitors especially during the spring and autumn migrations.

What’s in your bird feeder?

DR. MARK HENDRICK: PRESIDENT OBAMA’S PARTING ECONOMIC SHOTS

In his final few months in office, President Barack Obama has issued several executive actions including declaring millions of acres in the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans to be forever off-limits to development and designating 1.65 million acres of land in Utah and Nevada as “national monuments,” effectively blocking them from economic development. In this article, Dr. Mark Hendrickson examines Obama’s final orders and argues that Americans should not be surprise because, “The outgoing president has spent the last eight years pushing a socialistic agenda of government control over economic activity.”

In this article that first appeared at the National Catholic Register, Dr. Paul Kengor looks at President Obama’s two terms and argues that his legacy may not be what many people thought—or hoped—it would be.

LYNN BERGMAN: BOTTOM LINE REQUIREMENTS OF OBAMACARE REPEAL

The year 2017 promises to be an exceptional one for limited government and the rule of law. It will be important that the Affordable Care Act be FULLY REPEALED first, and be replaced with free market solutions to the problems that ACA has only exacerbated because of its government interference in the marketplace and intrusion between doctor and patient.

DR. GARY WELTON: PRAYING FOR YOU, RIGHT NOW!

Over the past decade, social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others) have grown in magnitude, volume, and influence. From using social media as a hard news source to posting pictures and videos of pets, the cultural impact of these sites is large. In this article, Dr. Gary Welton looks at how Facebook is used and offers an important reminder about another impactful practice: prayer.

DENNIS PATRICK: POLITICAL CORRECTNESS – TAKE A HIKE!

Political Correctness directed by a small class of activists in academia, government bureaucracies and the media offered an ideal way of achieving cultural hegemony. As Codevilla puts it, it is “forceful seduction” achieving “tacit collaboration by millions who bite their lip.” PC promotes obedience to the ruling class through a means of quiet subversion. The parallel between PC and Saul Alinsky’s principles in “Rules For Radicals” is unmistakable.

In this article, Dr. Earl Tilford looks at the international landscape and argues that Trump must restore America’s credibility. Tilford writes, “The only way to deal effectively with international threats is to do so with credible diplomacy grounded in economic stability and supported by unassailable military strength.”

Is a college degree the proverbial "ticket" to secure employment? Remarkably, a recent survey revealed that 95 percent of college grads do not have a clear understanding of their employment expectations or how to get a job. In this article, Dr. James Thrasher looks at the survey and discusses how understanding vocational calling will “provide a framework or roadmap to discerningly assess career paths that will be a natural ‘fit’ and that will bring meaning, satisfaction, and fulfillment.”

SELWYN DUKE: LET’S STOP WITH THE CARBON CON ALREADY

If extra atoms and elements and how they react with each other can be ignored when formulating labels and definitions, we could say that Al Gore’s birth was a carbon emission.

Honest people should reclaim the language and reboot the debate by rejecting “carbon” talk. As for those knowingly using the term for propaganda purposes, they should have a huge carbon footprint placed firmly on their carbon-based posteriors.

In the midst of busy lives and an unpredictable new year, remember to honor precious friends and friendships. The value of enduring friendship transcends time; the reservoir of reciprocal affection is always present to draw from.

Happy New Year!
