[This is the republication of a column that originally appeared at dailycaller.com in January, 2016. Aside from one alteration in the last line, reflected in the title, it is identical to the original piece. I think it’s worth pondering In light of the trend of a slew of subsequent events, a trend now intensifying.]    [...]


[This article was originally published at dailycaller.com some weeks ago. It’s worth revisiting in light of Judge Gorsuch’s testimony during the U.S. Senate hearing on his nomination to SCOTUS.] Like Mitt Romney and other politicians seeking support from the GOP’s conservative constituency, candidate Donald Trump touted his switch from favoring so-called “abortion rights”.  President Trump’s [...]


Should US Diplomacy Simply be War by Other Means

These days the logic of statements made by our politicians and government officials often defies reason.  Take this statement, made by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, justifying the cuts the Trump Administration wants Congress to make in the U.S. State Department’s budget. Clearly the level of spending that the State Department has been undertaking, [...]

As things are going right now, it looks like sincere conservatives who accepted the “lesser-of-evils” excuse to vote for Donald Trump will soon be choking down its consequences when it comes to policy. President Trump is praising the bill to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, offered by the GOP’s House Leadership.  But a slew of conservative [...]


Trump’s Travel Ban E.O.-Why Both Sides May Be Right

The last paragraph in Section 1 of the EO says: In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from their own) or those who would oppress Americans of [...]

They do not stop to consider that preferment is a two-edged sword, if preferring someone to a position of honor in some executive department removes him from a position of [...]


To conserve the mandate of Christ’s example of Love

The word “conserve” is said to take root from the Latin word, conservare, which is a compound of the prefix com- meaning “with, together or beside”, and servare meaning to keep watch, maintain, or guard. In all the years that I have consented to bear the conservative label, I have found that keeping this root [...]


The headline read Mike Pence has Something to prove.  WND editor Joseph Farah’s commentary was all about how Mike Pence reversed his support for the Indiana law meant to assure that the State of Indiana would protect the unalienable rights of religious conscience undeniably included among those the U.S. Constitution’s 1st, 9th and 14th Amendments [...]


America’s Founders thought that the institutions they established for the government of the United States would mitigate the effects of demagoguery, which human society appears to make inevitable.  Once upon a time, the mechanisms they built into the U.S. Constitution for this purpose (like the so-called system of checks and balances, an independent Judiciary, the [...]


Americans must seize the initiative

In Tom Sowell’s recent article on the choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, he showed, as always, that he is too rational, honest and truly careful of the future of our county to offer his compatriots comfort in delusion.  He sees neither of these candidates as fit for the Presidency.  He is as faithful [...]
