We see what Obama does yet ‘none dare call it treason’

June 18th, 2015

For those of us born and raised in the U.S., we tend to be less cognizant about what has made America the great nation it is. We tend to lose sight of the “glue” that has held us together for so long and which now seems to be losing its adhesive quality. The insights of

With a Second Chance After 2009, Obama Again Fails to Do Right by the Iranian People

June 15th, 2015

Last February’s Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks proved a thriller. Behind 28-24 with 26 seconds left, the Seahawks had a first down on the Patriots one-yard line.

Iran: Obama Reaping What he has Sown

June 15th, 2015

Obama may be unfamiliar with the verse, “As you sow, so shall you reap,” since it originates in the Bible and not the Quran. The verse tells us everything one does has repercussions.

June 15th, 2015

The 19th century British historian and moralist Lord Acton noted, “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” In democracies, we see the telling sign of this tendency when elected officials exceed the limits of their authority.
