Totalitarian China, which has become America's banker, is setting the stage to sabotage our national defense in a number of ways.

DAVID LIMBAUGH President Obama continues to prove how out of touch he is with the plight of the American people under his anemic economy.

I watched the video, and he stated the point clearly and deliberately... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST Readers were warned at the outset of our our summation of pre-Cold War events that it would require an entire book -- rather than a mere column -- to do full justice to so huge a swath of history. We still are not writing a book, but for those genuinely in search of further (albeit encapsulated) explanations, here goes... (more)

ALAN KEYES For some time now I've been sharing (via Twitter, Facebook, etc.) articles I run across that document the fact that Mitt Romney is a crypto-socialist (i.e., a socialist who hides it behind some other label) who has already implemented leftist measures Obama has had trouble implementing on account of strong resistance...

WASHINGTON EXAMINER The icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe hung behind the podium. One organizer of the rally held a 3-foot-long wooden crucifix. Some in the crowd quietly prayed the rosary.
