The U.S., Russia and Syria
Dr. Gary K. Busch – 6/23/2012
One of the most frustrating aspects of the media coverage of the current civil disturbances in Syria is that there is a dearth of ‘joined-up’ thinking behind most of the analyses. There is a lot of eye-witness reporting of events in the country as well as a litany of political opportunism by politicians pressing their own self-serving analyses of the Syrian events.

Deconstructionism in modern society
Ellis Washington – 6/23/2012
Conservative historian David Barton, in his outstanding new book—“The Jefferson Lies: Exploring the Myths You’ve Always Known About Thomas Jefferson,” has once again presented an opus that shines the light of truth on the lies and propaganda of atheism, progressivism, liberalism, humanism, and secular elites who possess a venal hatred against American exceptionalism.
