The Overpopulation Myth Is Easily Disproven

Written by William Sullivan

In the scope of modern history, population control as a means to reduce scarcity of resources is anything but a new idea, despite what socialists like Bernie Sanders would have you believe.

Bernie Sanders recently proposed that America should finance abortions in developing countries in order to save the planet from the coming scarcity of global resources that will occur as a result of overpopulation and “climate change.”  Another way for this to be understood, as it certainly would have been had a Republican uttered this policy prescription, is that the best way to save the planet is to keep poor people from being born, because they might sap vital resources that could be better used by the rest of us.… Continue Reading

Democrats Once Again Embrace Population Control to Save the Planet

Written by Stephen Moore

Is the left once again embracing Malthusian population control in order to save the planet?

Of all the preposterous proposals put forward by the Democratic presidential candidates during the CNN climate change town hall meeting last week, the dumbest wasn’t outlawing plastic straws, incandescent light bulbs or air travel. It wasn’t the contention that climate change is the globe’s greatest threat since World War II. It wasn’t even the fantastical hypothesis that hurricanes are racist because they target “communities of color” more than white areas.… Continue Reading

Socialism is Theft — Why Are Candidates Espousing It?

Written by Jerry Newcombe

I recently preached a sermon on the subject of stealing in our church’s series on the Ten Commandments. And one of the points I made is that socialism is a form of theft.

I mentioned the slogan going around during the 1960s — “property is theft.”

But the Bible says, “Thou shalt not steal.” Implied in that commandment is the sanctity of private property — I’m not allowed to simply take it because someone else owns it.… Continue Reading

Democrats, in Showing Their Extremism, Do Nation a Favor

Written by David Limbaugh

In Wednesday evening’s Democratic presidential debate circus, the left’s favorite darlings turned on one another with a selfish vengeance, which was a positive development for the country and mildly entertaining. The glorious infighting continued among progressive commentators.

This acrimony, coupled with the public exposure of the left’s crazy ideas, surely diminished the party’s image among sane voters. The more leftists reveal their inanity and extremism, the better for President Trump and the nation.… Continue Reading

Climate Change Hysteria Grips the Democratic Party

Written by Timothy J. Dailey

On Tuesday, July 9, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont joined U.S. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Earl Blumenauer of Oregon in introducing a resolution declaring that climate change is a national emergency, seemingly oblivious to the fact that the notion of global warming is coming under increased scrutiny.

While the vast majority of the scientific community continues to march in lockstep to the mantra of climate change, dissent is growing.… Continue Reading

What Is This Love Affair With Socialism?

Written by Jerry Newcombe

“Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it,” said Santayana. Many young people today claim to prefer socialism—and in some cases, even communism (which is socialism’s more violent form)—over capitalism.

Recently a candidate for city council in Denver declared that capitalism has failed and that socialism is the future. Candi Cdebaca said that we are in the “last phase” of capitalism—as if it is dying. In contrast, she said, “I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources and distribution of those resources.” And she is willing to implement this agenda “by any means necessary.” Last week, she won the election.… Continue Reading

Democrats: The “Post-Truth” Party

Written by Trevor Thomas

In September of 2008, U.S. Senator, vice-presidential candidate, and democrat Joe Biden was asked his thoughts—“as a Roman Catholic”—on when life begins. Demonstrating a vast ignorance of science, along with an unflattering display of faith, he told NBC’s Tom Brokaw, “Look, I know when it begins for me.” A decade later, using the same “post-truth” relativism, New York Mayor, presidential candidate, and democrat Bill de Blasio, after signing a law that allows New Yorkers to declare their chosen gender on their birth certificate, told a cheering crowd, “You be you.… Continue Reading

The Siren Call of Pete Buttigieg

Written by Timothy J. Dailey

When Pete Buttigieg, the little-known mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination, he stunned the political world with his meteoric rise in the polls.  Buttigieg was everywhere in the news and on television, thanks to a savvy campaign team that included political operative Lis Smith, who boasted, “I want him on everything.”  In a month, he had raised 7 million dollars, a significant sum for a political nobody starting from scratch in a national campaign.… Continue Reading

Democrats Lurch Ever Leftward

Written by Robert Knight

Adults in the Democratic Party, who seem like flustered parents at an out-of-control toddler birthday bash, have been warning about the public’s perception of them.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has reason to worry. The 22 declared candidates for the presidential nomination lean far to the Left.  Which means they represent the center of their now-far-Left party.

The mini-wave for “moderate” Joe Biden reflects a desperate pullback from the zany public image fostered by wild-haired Vermont socialist U.S.… Continue Reading

A Friendship That Changed History

Written by Jerry Newcombe

Thirty years ago, the good guys won the Cold War, yet today we have a frontrunner candidate for president, Bernie Sanders, who is an out-of-the closet socialist. He loved the old Soviet Union so much so that he spent his honeymoon there.

For decades, the Communists were aiming to take over the whole world. “We will bury you,” claimed Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in 1956.

Thirty years ago, two men played pivotal roles in helping to speed up the end of Russian domination—President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II.… Continue Reading
