Bill Tatro: Is Armageddon really a revelation?

By Bill Tatro When most people hear the word ARMAGEDDON they think of the 1998 film starring Bruce Willis and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. The highest grossing film of 1998, worldwide, even surpassing the war epic “Saving Private Ryan”. The plot was simple. A rogue asteroid, the size of Texas, would collide with Earth in […]

Thomas Sowell: A legacy of cliches

Thomas Sowell: A legacy of cliches

By Thomas Sowell Discussions of racial problems almost invariably bring out the cliche of “a legacy of slavery.” But anyone who is being serious, as distinguished from being political, would surely want to know if whatever he is talking about — whether fatherless children, crime or whatever — is in fact a legacy of slavery […]

Ben Crystal: Who is burning ‘black’ churches?

Ben Crystal: Who is burning ‘black’ churches?

By Ben Crystal We all remember the images of that CVS Pharmacy burning in Ferguson, Missouri. Media and social media combined to broadcast the inferno into every corner of the globe. While the Ferguson race riots were predictable — Americans riot over bowl games, so you knew someone would hurl a brick through a window […]

Emil Franzi: Confederate flag flap is an even bigger debate

Emil Franzi: Confederate flag flap is an even bigger debate

By Emil Franzi   Old-time Kremlim watchers had to work overtime around May Day, particularly in the Stalin era. That’s when the new hierarchies were made visible. One indicator was noting which defrocked Politiburo Members had been airbrushed out of the older photos. We need to be careful because the recent Confederate Flag flap can […]

Eugene Slaven: The White Privilege lie

Eugene Slaven: The White Privilege lie

By Eugene Slaven Of all the invectives launched against the United States by the resurgent American Left, the charge that in America, White Privilege reigns supreme is the most insidious and culturally ruinous. Its intent is unambiguous: leftists perpetuate the White Privilege lie to smear America and its institutions as inherently racist, and therefore unworthy […]

Phil Richardson: How hackers are manipulating U.S. stock markets

By Phil Richardson Stock markets have from time to time been manipulated throughout the years in many diverse ways. The temptation of gain, even if illegal, is patently irresistible to some. In April, 2014, I fulminated about a new kind of “front-running” in the stock markets. Outlined below is an astoundingly more productive way than […]

Michael Barone: The Two-Point-Something Campaign

Michael Barone: The Two-Point-Something Campaign

By Michael Barone This spring it seems as if there have been two-point-something Republican presidential candidacy announcements per week. And, since she made her own announcement April 12, Hillary Clinton has answered an average of about two-point-something questions from the press each week. Those (imprecise) statistics illustrate the asymmetrical nature of the presidential race. One […]

Bill Tatro: Oversupplied

Bill Tatro: Oversupplied

By Bill Tatro In 1930, the Smoot-Hawley Act raised tariffs on over 20,000 imported goods. Up until that point the American manufacturer was producing at record levels. The American consumer was consuming at record levels. Regardless of whether you could afford it or not through lay-away, systematic payout or even simple credit, one’s wants became […]

Aaron MacLean: Isolationism with drones is leading to American failure

By Aaron MacLean The Times of London reported this Sunday that, according to “senior American officials,” Saudi Arabia has decided to purchase nuclear weapons “off-the-shelf” from Pakistan. Whether or not this specific report turns out to be accurate, it is clearly the case that the Gulf Arabs feel betrayed by the Obama administration’s facilitation of […]
