Here is the story that no news agency ran over the weekend: Oman Mateen, a 29-year old American citizen born in New York, shot and killed 49 party-goers at a gay bar in Orlando, Florida. A few hours before the attack, Mateen had called 9-11 and had declared his allegiance to ISIS, the Islamic terrorist […]

Well over half a century ago, I became a Bobby Fisher fan. He was asked at age 15 what he loved about chess. He answered: “I love to see them squirm.” Today, I love to see the mainstream media squirm about Trump. In response to the Orlando massacres by a Muslim terrorist, President Obama went […]

The Case for Patience

Written by Gary North on June 18, 2016

patience

One of the truly discouraging things for every businessman or minister to deal with is the slowness of all progress within his organization. A man who is pioneering a particular idea or technology believes that his product is so unique, so beneficial, and so marketable that buyers or contributors will line up to buy it. […]

legislation

“You can’t legislate morality!” How many times have you heard that one? Too many, I’ll bet. Have you ever sat down and thought through the implications of this humanist slogan? Does anyone really know what it means? We all know how it’s used: to try to reduce support for a proposed law that the complainer […]

James Comey holds all the cards. He can make the decision regarding the correct time to recommend the indictment or non-indictment of Mrs. Clinton. This puts him 100% in charge. Not 50%. Not 75%. Obama has now gone kissy-face with Clinton. This is seen by a lot of commentators as a guarantee that the Justice […]

The Big White Elephant is on life support but not for much longer. Airbus Industries, its parent EADS and the governments who continue to subsidize its production can no longer justify its continuity at the expense of the European tax payer. A rapidly shrinking customer base and less than a hand full of customers who […]

On December 7, 1941, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. As one ship sat burning in the harbor, its anti-aircraft guns blazing at the incoming waves of planes, a chaplain reportedly began assisting the gunners, and was heard to shout, “Praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition!” This phrase was turned into a popular patriotic song […]

What would you do if a topless bar-adult theater complex opened across the street from your church or Christian school? If your community were hit with a wave of pornographic materials, which institution should take the lead in campaigning against it? A hundred years ago, the answer would have been instantaneous, the local church. Yet […]

Two decades ago, I came across a remarkable mimeographed manuscript, “The Fabian Transmission Belt.” The author was a member of a tightly disciplined religious order and the daughter of a prominent U.S. Senator. She had access to an enormous file of materials relating to the development and transmission of Fabian socialist ideas. She named the […]
