Russians Mocking Obama

With the Obama Administration well into its fifth year, our country’s respect on the international front continues to dwindle. President Obama’s latest debacle is unfolding in Eurasia, where the Russian Federation has expanded its boundaries into Ukraine, annexing the coastal region of Crimea, much to the chagrin of the Western world. The daring manuever drew a hapless response from the Obama Administration, making the U.S. the laughing stock among Russian politicians. American Enterprise Institute scholar Michael Rubin tells conservative radio talk show host Andrew Wilkow, “What’s dangerous is that what happens in Crimea doesn’t stay in Crimea. Ultimately, Vladimir Putin might be laughing at us, but Kim Jong Un, the dear leader in North Korea is having similar thoughts, you can be sure that the Supreme Leader in Iran is having similar thoughts and every single ally we have whom we have given security guarantees, are now seeing those guarantees aren’t worth the paper their written on.”

A Nightmare For Atheists

Back in February, people celebrated “Question Evolution Day,” a day Wild Bill calls “Atheist’s Nightmare Day.” He says, “That’s the day atheists dread. Liberal professors dread that people might actually ask good questions and demand honest answers. Evolution is the No. 1 tool in the world for destroying the faith for people who do not think for themselves.The last thing Atheists for America want is for people to question evolution.”

Courts Failing the Constitution

Clark Neily, attorney at the Institute for Justice, is adamant that the courts have failed our Constitution, and says so in his new book, Terms of Engagement: How the Courts Should Enforce the Constitution’s Promise of Limited Government. Neily tells Reason TV’s Zach Weissmueller, “The judiciary was meant to stand as a bulwark against the tyranny of the majority, a defender of individual rights. Instead, it has become a mere enabler of legislators and government agencies.”

Reagan Warned Us

In his address at the 1964 Republican National Convention, Ronald Reagan not only wowed the faithful, but unfurled a litany of oratorical genius. Truth be told, the man who would become our 40th president foretold the future in the very same speech. Reagan warned of the dangers of overspending, over-taxing, recklessly raising the debt limit, endangering the freedoms that our forefathers fought for and the perils of bigger government. In retrospect, Reagan warned us about Obama.

The War On Sex Trafficking

When California passed Proposition 35, an anti-sex trafficking measure in 2012, it was supported by a landslide 81 percent of the voters.

In the following video, Reason TV takes an in-depth look at the pros and cons of the sex-trafficking dilemma.

Crowded Earth

With 60 million people migrating to cities worldwide every year, we are fast becoming Crowded Earth. So where is everyone going to live? Phil Harper of “Truthloader” says that by 2050, 85 percent of the world’s population will live in urban areas and cities will grow into each other, creating mega regions. Harper discusses the coming dilemma and the possible solutions.

Did KGB Train Oswald?

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, but time has failed to quiet the conspiracy theorists surrounding arguably the most tragic event in American history. Though a myriad of theories abound, all discounting Lee Harvey Oswald as the lone assassin, the conspiracy implicating the Soviet Union’s KGB is among the most riveting. In 1959, it was confirmed that Oswald defected to the Soviet Union, where he lived for three years. Nearly 20 years later, Soviet General Ion Mihai Pacepa, who served as chief of communist Romania’s secret intelligence, defected to the United States, where he divulged that not only did Oswald act alone in assassinating the president, but he also was trained by the KGB. Tune in to the assassination timeline in this fascinating video produced by “Alltime Conspiracies.”

Gettysburg Address Celebration

Yesterday, thousands of Americans gathered in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln’s historic Gettysburg Address. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett told the crowd, “His words were simple. His faith was deep. His genius was so profound it could be dispensed in those 272 words and yet shape centuries of thought and debate about what it means to be in the United States of America. Historian James Getty portrayed Lincoln in a re-enactment of the brief speech.
