blog preview image by Gary Fouse Currently, many states are attempting to pass-or have passed- legislation which would preclude other forms of law being incorporated into state law. To be specific, the particular law they are trying to avoid is Islamic law-sharia (though they must avoid specifically targeting Islamic ...Read More...

blog preview image by Gary Fouse For a country that has been trying to get into the European Union for years, the current government of Turkey under Recep Tayyip Erdogan is hardly acting like a friend to the Europeans let alone a responsible member of NATO. Erdogan is determined to remove the secularism established ...Read More...

blog preview image by Gary Fouse Since much of my writing concerns the craziness going on in our universities, I spend a lot of time reading reports from such blogs as Campus Watch, College Reform, The College Fix, and Legal Insurrection to name a few.

blog preview image by Gary Fouse It seems the news coming out of Europe is so bad that many of us wonder if the entire continent is doomed to a fate of Islamization. Terror attacks have hit major cities like Paris, Brussels, Nice and others. Crime on the part of immigrants, migrants, asylum-seekers, and so-called ...Read More...

blog preview image by Gary Fouse The dust has barely settled on the UC Berkeley campus after Wednesday night's riot. The cause? The College Republicans had invited Milo Yiannopoulos, a conservative, gay, British editor from Breitbart. Yiannopoulos was making the next-to-last appearance of his "Dangerous Faggot ...Read More...

blog preview image by Gary Fouse Sweden, even by European standards, is a curious country. I have visited the country three times and for 20 or so years have dabbled at learning the language. Scandinavia is (or was) a fantastic region in Europe, beautiful, clean and orderly. That has all changed now at least in ...Read More...

blog preview image by Gary Fouse On Tuesday evening, I happened to watch Fox News’ Tucker Carlson’s show in which one of his guests was Sam Moore of the famous duo of the 1960s, Sam and Dave (the latter is now deceased.)

blog preview image by Gary Fouse I recall the first George W.

It was pretty ugly - if you have any respect for the peaceful transfer of power in this country. Compared ...Read More...

blog preview image by Gary Fouse Conventions are supposed to be fun affairs. Generally, they are boondoggles designed to waste money, eat and drink. Apparently, that was the hope at the annual convention of the Modern Language Association in Philadelphia this past week. No, these are not comprised of the thousand ...Read More...

by Gary Fouse It's hard to find much logic behind lame-duck secretary of state John Kerry's speech Wednesday other than pouring more fuel on the fire between the out-going Obama administration and Israel after the US abstained in the UN Security Council resolution against Israel.

by Gary Fouse German Chancellor Angela Merkel has become a parody of herself with each new terror attack committed by one of the refugees, asylum-seekers, or migrants that she has allowed into her country.

Now in their 90s, they were somewhere between nineteen and twenty-something on December 7, 1941. They had already answered their country's call to service ...Read More...

blog preview image by Gary Fouse Having learned much about Islam since 9-11, I have come to distrust the term, "moderate Muslim," especially here in the US.
