Conservative Truth
Dr. Tom Barrett
Even before the Holocaust had ended, Jews were imploring each other to record what had happened. Those who fled, those who were hidden by Christians, and even the Jews in the death camps wrote down what happened.
 
When Jews say "Never Forget" it's not a slogan. It's a reminder to the world of the horrors they experienced at the hands of the Nazis. We talk of the six million Jews slaughtered by Germany. To put that in perspective, six million people was one-third of the world's Jewish population at that time. ONE-THIRD.
 
Like the Jews, America can never forget what happened 17 years ago on 911 - and who did it to us. Let me declare the truth that Obama seemed incapable of uttering: Islamic terrorists slaughtered almost 3,000 Americans on 911. Read more...

Nineteen years ago Hurricane Floyd made landfall in coastal North Carolina. Ironically it initially devastated the same area of the North Carolina coast that was hit by Hurricane Florence this week. The reason this is ironic is that many of the people who managed to survive Floyd in 1999 have defied Mandatory Evacuation orders for Florence. Are their memories really that short?

68 people died as a result of Floyd. Most of them were people who refused to evacuate. So far 11 people have died due to Florence.  We don't know how many more may lose their lives. But we do know that if people are killed by this hurricane, it will again be mostly people who refused to obey evacuation orders.

My question is why we have both Voluntary and Mandatory Evacuation orders when there is virtually no difference between the two. Yes, using the word "mandatory" does indicate a more severe threat. But if the authorities have no power to enforce a Mandatory Evacuation order, it is still voluntary.   Read more...
 
Special Commentary

Conservatism isn’t really conducive to sound bites and slogans. However, there is one thing that encompasses conservatism without lengthy explanation. I call it the '10 Tenets of Conservatism.' Each of the 10 tenets is but one line long and compresses our beliefs to easily digestible bites – politically, fiscally, and to some extent, socially, and are as applicable today as when they were written, over a century ago.  Read more...
How people, driven by passion and ideology, can create a climate of chaos, anger and desperation
Bob Pascarella
As an American, I find it regrettable to watch a segment of the population as it goes through the pangs of anger, distress and desperation - the highs and lows of the daily events surrounding President Trump. One day they’re giddy and hopeful that the walls are closing in around him, and that this is the day of reckoning they’ve been waiting for, the ‘scandal’ that will finally take him down. But then within days the issue begins to lose legitimacy and consequence, it lingers along the periphery of the news cycle, and then slowly and quietly fads into the background, and with it all the hopes and dreams of the unhinged are dashed.  Read more...

Voltaire said, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”   

Enforcing anti-trust laws on social media giants would accord free market competition, without an overwhelming market share adversary. This could provide results that even Voltaire would love.

Last week Michael Anthony Peroutka, Chairman of the Anne Arundel County, MD Council, introduced Resolution 30-18 recognizing and declaring the humanity of preborn children. The resolution urged the citizens of Anne Arundel County to take all appropriate actions to prevent cruel and inhumane treatment of all human beings, including preborn children, as well as to promote and defend the dignity of all human beings within Anne Arundel County.

When presented with a resolution acknowledging and declaring that children in the womb are human beings, the council voted 4-3 against.

Peroutka then made the statement, “This begs the question...If they don’t think the life inside of the womb is human, then what species do they think it is?” Read more...

For decades we have allowed the American left (public education, Hollywood, Democrat party and fake news media) to indoctrinate our children; teaching them that America is evil and is the greatest source of pain and suffering for people both here and abroad. We're still allowing leftists to mold and shape our kids into their anti-Christian radical progressive image as early as preschool. Read more...

Central bankers are now aggressively playing the stock market. To say they are buying up the planet may be an exaggeration, but they could. They can create money at will, and they have declared their “independence” from government. They have become rogue players in a game of their own.  Read more...

There’s a story in the Bible that can help those wanting to be free of something holding them back. Let me give you some background. Elisha was a farmer’s farmer. However, something happened to him that would change his life. He knew the ‘next’ in his life was to serve a prophet by the name of Elijah.  Read more...

Today, I placed my Glock pistol on the table right next to my front door. I left its magazine beside it, then left it alone and went about my business.

While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor's son across the street mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the "stop" sign near the front of my house.

After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was quietly sitting there, right where I had left it. It had not moved itself outside. It had not killed anyone.
