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.”

DR. PAUL KENGOR: 0BAMA’S FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION

The final week of Barack Obama’s presidency is upon us. Over the past eight years many things have changed. But has America “fundamentally changed” as Obama declared it would in October 2008? 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 It will be important that the Affordable Care Act be FULLY REPEALED first, and be replaced with free market solutions to the problems that ACA has only exacerbated because of its government interference in the marketplace and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.

DR. EARL TILFORD: THE KEY TO THE RUSSIAN RIDDLE

In less than two weeks, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Trump’s administration will inherit many foreign policy challenges: Iran, North Korea, ISIS, Russia, and others. 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.”

DR. JAMES THRASHER: COLLEGE GRADS’ GREAT EXPECTATIONS?

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.

DENNIS PATRICK: DAYS GONE BY—2016

At year’s end, on December 31 following an evening of celebration, the strains of “Auld Lang Syne” once again drift across the room as sure as midnight rolls around the world.

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!

SELWYN DUKE: PETULANT CHILDREN WHINING ABOUT ELECTORAL COLLEGE SHOULDN’T HAVE THE VOTE

As to the real threat to our nation, the liberals illustrate it well, being the “men of intemperate minds [who] cannot be free” and whose “passions forge their fetters.” For barbarity begets tyranny. Like a child losing privileges due to irresponsibility, if people prove too immature to govern themselves, they will ultimately lose the power to do so. This is why it’s too bad voting rights can’t be granted based on mental age — it could save our republic.

SELWYN DUKE: EVEN IF THE RUSSIANS DID HACK THE EMAILS, SO WHAT?

What was actually revealed by Wikileaks and what effect it had are being conflated with the matter of who revealed it, as if the messenger somehow changes the message. Consider an analogy: Imagine it came to light that a Capitol Hill restaurant’s kitchen was filthy and vermin-infested. Would the health department’s course of action be dictated by whether the information came from a disgruntled employee or an investigative reporter who illegally gained access to the kitchen? If the latter, would Washington Democrats still eat there?

JOSEPH SOBRAN: RESISTING JESUS

The natural reaction to Christ is to reject him. He said so. In fact, when he was taken to the Temple as an infant, St. Simeon prophesied that he would be a center of contention. Later he predicted his own death and told his followers they must expect persecution too.

His bitterest enemies weren’t atheists; they were the most religious men of his age, the Pharisees, who considered his claims blasphemous — as, by their lights, they were.

Nice? That’s hardly the word for Jesus. He performed miracles of love and mercy, but he also warned of eternal damnation, attacked and insulted the Pharisees, and could rebuke even people who adored him in words that can only make us cringe.

To many, he was a threat. He still is. We honor him more by acknowledging his explosive presence than by making him a mere symbol of nice manners. At every step of his ministry, he made enemies and brought his crucifixion closer. People weren’t crucified for being nice.

DENNIS PATRICK: FOREVER CHRISTMAS

Jesus the Christ is central to western culture. That doesn’t mean everyone will embrace Him for who He says He is. It does mean that His influence is such that no other individual could have shaped lives and behavior worldwide over time in a manner as has Jesus. But that He has done so is what matters.

He emphasized a message of salvation, love and peace residing within each individual and working outward into the world. We even count our days from His appearance on earth. And, for His influence, He was killed.

Marsch writes, “It has been said that Glenn was the last true American hero, beloved of almost everyone, regardless of political views.”

SELWYN DUKE: HALT ALL IMMIGRATION

Consider: with the U.S. having a replacement-level fertility rate of 2.1 children per woman, immigration is the only reason our population is increasing. As to this, our numbers have swelled from 100 million people in 1915 to 200 million in 1968 to 320 million today. And it’s projected they will reach approximately 400 million just after 2050.

Obviously, such growth involves strain on natural resources, social services and infrastructure. Yet while the Left purports to care about the environment, it also pursues open-border policies with jihadist-like zeal. But when will enough population be enough? When it stands at 450 million? A half billion? A billion? The Left likes to push “family planning.” But what about national-family planning?

In this article, Dr. L. John Van Til examines the Founders intentions when developing the Electoral College and the value it still holds. He writes, “It’s fair to say that without the electoral system the republic would dissolve.”

CHRISTOPHER MANION: A BOOK REVIEW: A JOE SOBRAN CHRISTMAS

Reading Joe Sobran is like reading Shakespeare; savoring each line, followed by a string of accolades like those wine reviews (“hint of the cask, with a swarthy aftertaste of the husk of peach….”). I’ve spent these past few months enjoying an essay or two a day, because Sobran’s vintage writing, like fine wine, must be sipped, contemplated, and appreciated.

Joe memorized all of Shakespeare, but I can’t memorize all of Joe. So I welcome these volumes that truly form an indispensable part of the historical and critical record of an intellectual giant. Joe read his favorite books again and again, and you’ll feel the same way when you begin reading these. Here and there you’ll recognize a pivotal passage. I sure have.

DR. EARL TELFORD: TRUMP’S PICKS - IN DEFENSE OF MILITARY AND BUSINESS LEADERS

Many pundits are busy vetting Donald Trump’s recent nominations. Some lawmakers, former diplomats, and past national security experts seem especially concerned about the appointments of retired general officers and business leaders to high positions in the Trump administration. But are these concerns necessary? In this article, Dr. Earl Tilford looks at Trump’s nominees—including Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State—and argues, “Generals and successful business leaders like Tillerson have vision and know that successful strategic thinking fosters strategies taking countries and companies to their desired end states.”

DENNIS PATRICK: TRUMP IN PERSPECTIVE….NO-NONSENSE PRAGMATIST

Trump is a fighter who loves the United States and has her best interests at heart. Love him or leave him, his no-nonsense pragmatism offers something the likes of which has never been seen recently in Washington, DC. Everything Trump does is unconventional. To superimpose old fashion political templates on him in an effort to predict his next move or evaluate his decisions is fruitless. It is to underestimate him and his actions. Proponents of old style politics will view Trump wrong every time
