Endangered, Divided And In Decline: America In The Obama Years

in Politics by

Yesterday was the last full day of the Obama regime. When historians look back on the years 2009 – 2017, many (the honest ones at least) will scratch their heads in varying degrees of bewilderment and confusion. “Why,” they will ask themselves, “did so many vote against their own self-interest, the interests of their nation and the safety and prosperity of the world?” In the end, there are many answers, but few which make actual sense or which stand up to reason. Suffice it to say that the 8 years of the Obama regime will largely be considered a “lost decade” of possibilities for America and the world, in which multiple crises went unaddressed, fundamental weaknesses and problems were allowed to exacerbate and fester until they became disasters, and the divisions which had always been lurking below the surface and which were largely diminishing, exploded with violence and renewed vigor. Obama’s failure to address the crisis of violent terrorism in the form of Islamic extremism has turned the Middle…

What Donald Trump Should Have Said To America

in Politics by

It’s become increasingly likely that the election is already over, and Donald Trump will lose to Hillary Clinton. However, there does remain a few glimmers of hope – one being the insurgent candidacy of Evan McMullin, and his “deny 270” strategy, the other being Trump’s withdrawal from the race. During the final debate with Hillary Clinton, when the candidates were given time to make a closing statement, in the interest of preserving the United States of America, and preventing the catastrophic damage a Clinton Presidency would unleash, Donald Trump should have used all his time (and take all the time he needed) to say the following: “Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m not going to mince words or waste your time. First of all, I want to say thank you to the millions of Americans across this great country who voted for me in the primaries. 17 Republican candidates began this race, and at the end, I was the last one standing. My message of building a wall along our Southern border, bringing back jobs…

The First Presidential Debate: The Crook Vs. The Clod

in Culture/Politics by

The first debate between the two least-admired nominees in electoral memory was a puerile display; an embarrassing 90-minute bum fight detrimental to the viewing public and inimical to a Republic which once had higher standards. At the end of 90 minutes, it is clear that Trump knows little to nothing about foreign policy, global economics, and how the Constitution works; while Hillary knows little to nothing about integrity, honesty and how the Constitution works. They are – both of them – unfit for the office, with Hillary being worse. Yes, Lester Holt asked Trump many negative questions (about tax returns, the “birther” issue, the Iraq War, and Hillary’s presidential “Look”) that pushed Trump into a corner, and were designed to make him look bad, while pointedly avoiding any topics that could make Hillary uncomfortable or unhappy. Yes, Hillary Clinton was atrociously awful each time she got off script, her face alternating between the evil smile of a Disney villain, and icy blank stares, with a stammering cackle occasionally thrown in. Yes, the debate, if divided in two (the…

Demanding Change And Bending History

in Politics by

You cannot ask to join something older, larger, and farther reaching than yourself, and then declare it is solely yours by demanding it be taken away from someone else. You cannot demand that something that has shaped entire arcs of history conform to your view and change into something it is not, cannot be, nor has ever been. Imperfect action is better than perfect procrastination, and positive change mostly comes very slowly, through incremental changes, one inch at a time. It is not wrong that your demands have not been met, that your opinions have not been agreed with, that your views have not been endorsed, that your perspective has not been accepted. You have the right to earn a place; you do not have the right to be put upon a pedestal. You have the right to speak; you do not have the right to have your voice heard. You have the right to prove yourself correct; you do not have the right to unearned legitimacy. Those things must…

Brexit Is Good – Here’s Why

in Culture/World by

On Thursday, British voters chose the uncertainty of independence over the certainty of bureaucratic morass, the vigor of self-reliance over the sluggishness of dependency, and risk of prosperity over the security of stagnation when they decided to leave the European Union. The Brexit victory offers Britain, Europe and the global economy a chance to redefine the global landscape, realistically assess whether governments and politics are working, and set the stage for a renewed economic dynamism. We find ourselves in a moment of global uncertainty and anxiety. Terrorism has made bloody inroads to the West, with attacks in Paris, Madrid, London and the United States leaving scores dead, survivors scarred for life, and many living in fear. The rise of refugees fleeing from war-torn, unstable countries in the Middle East (especially those that harbor terrorist networks) to western nations fuels rising (and in some cases, justified) fears of increased attacks against civilians and civil society. How The Shock of Brexit Changes the Paradigm Increasing globalization of trade, immigration and international cooperation generated both a rise in abundance and widening imbalances, which…

America Doesn’t Have a Gun Problem

in Culture/Politics by

The reason the Founders enshrined the Second Amendment in the Constitution was because they understood that the inherent dignity and worth of the individual person expressed itself in the concepts of “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” An inherent part of Life and Liberty is security and the right of self-defense. We are endowed by our Creator with the desire for liberty and safety, and thus, have the right to hunt for sport and for food, and most importantly, to defend ourselves in the case of attack, threat to ourselves, our family and our property. The surest way of accomplishing this is to acknowledge, uphold and enforce the inalienable right that individuals have the right bear arms. In America, the most common expression of this fundamental human right is gun ownership, and although they represent a small percentage of guns overall, sporting rifles (or as the alarmist media labels them, “assault rifles”) are a popular choice for enthusiasts, sport shooters, and responsible gun owners. One of the most…

Orlando Nightclub Victims Of Radical Islamic Hatred

in Culture/Politics by

It is tragic that once again, innocent victims succumb to the violent hatred of homegrown radical Islam. While we are still learning all the facts, it is clear that the gunman not only supported ISIS, but swore allegiance to the terrorist group, and acted as a radical Islamist, as he phoned 911 prior to carrying out his attack that resulted in the death of 50 people and an additional 53 people injured. Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old U.S.-born citizen, has been identified as the suspect in the worst mass shooting in American history that left scores dead and more than 50 others wounded at the Pulse Orlando, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. That he chose to use guns to carry out his violent jihad on a nightclub serves only to illustrate the depth of his hatred – he could easily have used a suicide bomb to cause many more casualties. Blaming guns for the violence not only fails to recognize the nature of the hatred, violence and nihilism inherent in radical…

The Right Furthers The Left’s Cause

in Politics by

What happens when you push a group of people so far for so long? What happens when you mock and marginalize their values for decades? What happens when you threaten their livelihoods and the success of their families? What happens when their voices go unheard, unacknowledged and unwanted? For decades now, the racially-motivated, culturally intolerant, religiously bigoted, economically destructive Left has increasingly divided Americans, exacerbating ruptures, exposing fault lines on every issue of significance, down to the foundations of the Republic, in a never-ending quest to redefine society, fundamentally transform American identity, and attain and hold power over every individual. In pursuit of this goal, the Left has made unleashing of the rage of the populace – the “mobocracy,” – one of its prefered methods of political persuasion (see Ferguson,Baltimore and San Jose). Compounding things, a tin-eared, myopic Republican party which has for decades campaigned for free market policies and adherence to the Constitution, failed to see that while the nation benefited as a whole from such principles, the plight of…

Obama, Rhodes, Iranian Nukes And Presidential Lies

in Politics/World by

It’s For Your Own Good Elected on a wave of goodwill, hope and change, the Obama administration sought out opportunities to not only “fundamentally transform America,” but to “restore America’s standing in the world.” These efforts included changes to the ways the administration addressed both allies and enemies alike. High up on the Obama regime’s list – even before the 2008 election – was outreach to the rogue state of Iran, well known as the predominant sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East and around the globe, and a threat for nuclear proliferation. Early on in the Obama tenure, domestic policy became the main focus as the efforts to pass Obamacare and the bloated $900 billion “stimulus” occupied most of the energy, attention and political capital of the regime. But behind the scenes, especially at the State Department, small but noticeable changes began taking place that would lay the groundwork for the diplomatic outreach to Iran. Chief among the movers and shakers, it has since come to light that…

Moral Relativism And Jihad

in Culture/Politics by

The work of Americans of good conscience – who also happen to be adherents of the Muslim faith – people like Asra Q. Nomani, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, and M.J. Khan is being undermined not only by the bloody violence of radical Islam, but of the failure of Western institutions to recognize and address the threat of jihad. We all know why the barbaric savages entered the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo and brutally murdered a dozen people in early 2015; why attackers murdered 130 in attacks that included Paris’ Bataclan theatre; why a married jihadi couple in San Bernadino gunned down 14 co-workers: because their hateful, murderous ideology demands that they convert, subjugate or kill people who do not believe as they do, and they profess that their religion motivates, guides and justifies their actions. Those facts are grounded not in race, but in cultural identity and ideology. That is why no amount of navel-gazing will wash away the fact that radical Islamic fundamentalism is the root of not only the Paris…

A Winning Ticket For The GOP Presidential Nomination

in Politics by

America faces a serious choice in 2016. The question is a simple one. Do we continue or expand upon the policies of Barack Obama, or do we make a decisive choice to step away from the abyss and back into the light of freedom and justice by renewing the promise of a new American century? From the beginnings of his insurgent, grassroots campaign for Senate in 2011, I have always supported Ted Cruz, and knew that he would be the strongest, boldest voice for a Conservative renewal of America. His understanding of and dedication to the Constitution far exceed that of any other candidate. His respect of the rule of law has no fiercer champion. His views on domestic and foreign policy are solid and logical. He represents the heart and soul and triumph of the Conservative movement in America, and would make a great President, and I feel very comfortable endorsing him. That being said, I’ve argued for a long time that Marco Rubio offers a compelling story…

Elections Have Consequences; Time For GOP To Be Consequential

in Politics by

The SCOTUS decision in King v Burwell is like this: On the eve of the Super Bowl, the most respected and experienced analysts declare that not only will the underdog team from the small-market city lose badly, but that their ability and skills are amateurish, their quarterback is ugly, their coach is a lunatic and their team’s owner is filthy degenerate. How will this affect the team’s performance? Will they hang their heads in shame, agree with the assessment, and inquire about the possibility of forfeiting the game in order to not impose their mediocrity upon the spectators? Or will they use the disrespect, the insults, and the disdain as fuel for the inner fire, motivating them to righteous anger and stoking their competitive spirit? In 2012, when the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare under the Federal Government’s authority to implement and enforce taxes, Justice Roberts said the following: “Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative…

Conservatism Resurgent: The World Turns Right

in Politics/World by

Across the globe, in elections in the United Kingdom, Israel, America, India, France, South Korea among others, the people have begun to rise up against the forces of authoritarianism, the forces of hatred and the forces of division, turning their backs on the leftist, secular, divisive ideology and the parties and the corrupt politicians – Socialists, Progressives, Liberals and Democrats – who represent it. Increasingly voters are turning right, returning to conservatism that harbors values and ideas that form the foundations of morality, ethics, liberty and freedom. In America, the Republican party benefited from the rise of the Tea Party – a grassroots response to the excessive authoritarianism of the Obama regime. The advent of the Tea Party heralded the return of Conservatism not only to the halls of Congress, but to local municipalities and state houses across the land in 2010, continuing in 2012 and 2014. While the media and the Left claim that the subsequent decrease in “Tea Party activism,” they willingly ignore that in the face of the vaunted Obama…

Beheading Children Beneath The Black Flag

in Politics by

Qur’an, Surah 8:12 – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”  Matthew 24:9 – “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” There is an unambiguous contrast drawn between those two statements of faith. In one, ostensibly fundamentalist words being used by groups like Islamic State (aka ISIS, ISIL) and others to justify and motivate their persecution and butchery of Christians in Iraq and elsewhere. In the other, prescient words of warning to those whose faith would make them targets and victims of fanatical, bloodthirsty hatred. Canon Andrew White, Vicar of the Anglican Church in Baghdad, experienced the horror firsthand when Islamic State descended upon on the Christian town of Qaraqosh. “I’m almost in tears because I’ve just had somebody in my room whose little child was cut in half. I baptized his child in my church in Baghdad. This little boy, they named him after me – he…

Redefining Marriage Transforms Society

in Politics by

Note: Opinions expressed in this article are solely those of the author and do not represent the views of Liberty Conservatives as an organization. It is deeply troubling and disappointing that as a culture, we’ve now arrived at the point in which a person who believes in the importance and cultural significance of traditional marriage (1 man + 1 woman = marriage), a position even Barack Obama shared until his recent “evolution”, is now expected to defend their position on the grounds that it is discriminatory, bigoted and homophobic. During the 2008 campaign, at a forum held by Pastor Rick Warren at the Saddleback Church in California, then-Senator Obama declared: “I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, for me, as a Christian, it is also a sacred union.” There is no doubt that his expressed views have changed since that time due to political expediency and opportunity. There is also no doubt that his “change” reflected his truest beliefs on the subject. His opportunism was sufficient to increase his share of the GLBT vote in the 2012 election, and presented Newsweek (a defunct magazine) an opportunity to…
