Lasting Lessons of September 11, 2001 »

by George Landrith

When Ronald Reagan was asked what his plan was for dealing with the communist threat, he responded, “We win, they lose.” Those four words led to an impressive victory for human freedom around the world. To this day, there are boulevards named after Reagan all over the world in nations that were once dominated and enslaved by communism’s hatred of freedom and lust for control.

China's Hazardous Present and Uncertain Future »

By Dr.  Miklós K. Radványi

Regardless of their shades, dictatorships universally worship might.  For this fundamental reason, the precarious existence of every revolutionary regime rests on two essential criteria – veneration of those who command power and faith in their ability to perpetuate the status quo.  Having attained absolute power by force in 1949, the Communist Party of China had governed the most populous nation on earth by the myth …

China's Approaching Implosion »

By: Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

From its genesis until its overthrow on February 12, 1912, imperial China was driven throughout its history by a permanent tension between the despotic state’s boundless hostility toward society and the violent anti-state sentiments of society.  The result of this uncompromising and—at times— merciless antagonism between the omnipotent state and the ruthlessly oppressed society was a political culture in which absolute power alternated between the …

The Arab World's Troubled Existence »

Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

More often than men would like it, history has the annoying habit of repeating itself.  Thus, already in 1985, the Sudanese people had a disappointing experience with the “Arab Spring” of their own making.  Back then they overthrew Jafaar al-Numeiri’s military dictatorship that during its decade and a half reign brought Sudan to the brink of political chaos and economic ruin.  Finally, after a hiatus of …

Rethinking American Foreign Policy »

Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

On January 20, 2013, the United States of America will either have Barack Hussein Obama for four more years or will have a new president, the Republican Willard Mitt Romney, with a new House of Representatives and a new Senate.  Be that as it may, the continuation of the Obama presidency, or alternatively the transfer of power to the new Romney administration, will be accompanied by …

Fast and Furious: Executive Privilege or Cover-up? »

By George Landrith & Miklos Radvanyi

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), which is part of the Department of Justice, ran the Fast and Furious “gun-walking” operation in which government agents purposely facilitated the sale of thousands of guns to the Mexican drug cartels. Hundreds of those Fast and Furious guns have been used in a long litany of drug-related murders along both sides of our southern border. …

Iran Must Not Be Allowed Nuclear Weapons »

By Deal Hudson

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made his annual address to the United Nations General Assembly late last week.  He reminded America and the free world just what a crazed world view he purports when he called for an investigation into the United States attack on its own World Trade Centers on 9/11.  It was brilliant theater and a classic distraction technique to be sure.  What he didn’t want you and …

Imam: Prospective Mosque Location not "Hallowed Ground" »

   In the English language certain phrases are not tricky but are done by many political leaders as a ploy for their own success. Governmental members, especially in recent times, are continually redefining some of clearest phrases such as “Financial reform” and “Student Loan Overhaul.”  Even more recently, we come to find even religious leaders also redefining phrases for their own sake. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf has attempted to create his …

Using our Rights against Our Own: The 9-11 Mosque and Religious Rights »

       There is one consistent factor of our society which we are seeing more and more: Using our rights against ourselves in order to protect others.  A great recent example is the 9-11 Mosque.  Almost daily, people are debating the 9-11 Mosque and whether it should be placed two blocks where terrorists involved in the same religion took down the twin towers and changed the nation and the world forever.  When …

Will Obama Outsource US Airlift to Russia or France? »

With the headlines dominated by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a controversial recess appointment, and Cold-war-era spy swaps, it is easy to lose sight of some very important national security issues. How the government spends money is often the real policy more than press secretary statements. With Congress considering defense appropriations, an important question is whether Congress and the President will provide our military with the equipment …
