Oliver Stone Says US Should Nationalize Oil Industry

Like a good little Communist blockhead, Academy Award-winning director of JFK and BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY and left-wing activist Oliver Stone believes the Gulf of Mexico oil spill demonstrates the U.S. should emulate South American socialists in nationalizing its energy industry.

Yep, Fidel on left and Stone on right (well, in the picture anyway)

Stone told British journalists that natural resources like oil “belong to the people.” In his opinion, the catastrophic oil spill is simply “typical” of what occurs when private industry is permitted to draw revenue on what should be a public good.

What Stone forgets is that government control is no guarantee either. In fact, pollution in Communist countries like the old Soviet Union and the current controlled economy run by the Communist Party in China was and is worse than the United States.

The director was recently in London promoting his documentary SOUTH OF THE BORDER about Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and his radical socialist allies in Latin America.

At a press conference, Stone mused about the possibility of making a film about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad.

“That’s a hot potato for me,” Stone said. “Obviously, he’s got bad press in the West.”

Confronting Islam: Divine Insights into God’s Truth for Today’s Biggest Challenge

By Dr. Ted Baehr, Publisher, and Dr. Tom Snyder, Editor

The news announcement Wednesday, July 7, 2010 that eight Christians were killed in Nigerian Muslim attacks is another example of fundamentalist Muslims under Sharia law doing what comes naturally – viciously murdering innocent people, especially Christians, Jews, Hindus, and Buddhists.

It has been said by the uneducated that all religions are the same – that there is no difference between Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, etc. . . . That doesn’t make any sense! That’s like saying all ice cream flavors taste the same. Or, better yet, all political opinions are the same. If that were true, what is everybody fighting about? And, why do ice cream companies make so many different flavors?

Mohammed, the alleged founder of the Muslim faith, was

Deepak Chopra and the Age-Old Problem with New Age Proselytizers

By Diana Anderson

Physician and spiritual guru Deepak Chopra has the answers to all that ails you. As a resonant voice echoing through the mirrored, metaphysical halls of the New Age movement, Chopra believes that looking within to our inner gods and goddesses will release the divine life, which we all are capable of enjoying, from optimal health and happiness to transcendent peace and prosperity.

The problem lies in the inescapable fact that human beings are inherently sinful, hopelessly adrift, fundamentally foolish, and powerless, in our own strength, to reach even the remotest ring rippling from the epicenter of any ageless, amorphous universal energy from which, in Chopra’s view, all divinity flows.

The solution to the problem of sin and its harmful effects on humanity is

KNIGHT: Truth in labeling for former ‘Conservatives’

‘Gay rights’ agenda is liberal Trojan Horse
By Robert Knight

As a longtime conservative, I believe in building coalitions. We can’t agree on everything, and it doesn’t help the cause to concentrate on areas of disagreement.

That said, when someone throws a brick through a church window, it’s absurd to pretend that isn’t a serious breach.

A number of prominent self-styled conservatives have embraced the false premise that homosexuality is morally irrelevant or even something to be promoted through public policy. Some have gone so far as to demand that

A Shrink Asks: What’s Wrong with Obama?

By Robin of Berkeley

So what is the matter with Obama? Conservatives have been asking this question for some time. I’ve written a number of articles trying to solve the mystery.

What's the matter with Obama?

Even some liberals are starting to wonder. James Carville railed about Obama’s blasé attitude after the catastrophic oil spill. The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd revamped Obama’s “Yes We Can” motto into “Will We Ever?”

The liberal women of the TV show “The View” have expressed sympathy for Michelle Obama’s living with a man so out of touch. Peggy Noonan, hardly a vehement Obama foe,  recently pronounced him

WITHOUT GOD, THERE IS NO LIBERTY

By Sharon Sebastian

Government can suppress it, deride it, attempt to lay claim to it, but they cannot stop it. Talk show hosts are speaking of it, many are now calling for it and more Americans understand the necessity for it, whether they believe in it or not. There is an uprising, a movement, a need to return to God. From the founding of this great nation, our forefathers knew that our liberty and rights are gifts from our Creator.

“Can the liberties of a nation be sure when we remove their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people, that these liberties are a gift from God?Thomas Jefferson

Of late, talk show hosts such as Limbaugh, Beck, Levin, Larson, Gallagher, Cunningham and an array of others are now openly calling for a

Abortion – The Great Moral Divide

Only about one-third of Americans take a strong stand when it comes to abortion, according to the Barna Research Group.

A recent survey of 1,001 adults by Barna shows that 19% of Americans believe the practice should be illegal in all cases while 15% want abortion to be legal in all cases. Regrettably, however, 49% prefer keeping abortion legal in most or all cases while 42% would like to make it illegal in most or all cases.

Interestingly, 78% of Christian evangelicals believe abortion Read the rest of this entry »

Jesus: The Ultimate Freedom Fighter

By Larry Klayman, attorney

My grandfather, Isadore Klayman, a Jew, fled the Soviet Union as a young boy, entering this country legally though Ellis Island, as most immigrants did in the early part of the 20th century. Not knowing his birthday – the Ukraine was not big on record keeping, particularly for rural farm families – “Izzy” was asked by the government immigration officer to pick a date for his entry visa. Izzy’s reply, “I’ll take Christmas, December 25! If it’s good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for me!”

My grandfather always felt very Jewish. In fact, he

OUR GOVERNMENT . . . WHAT WENT WRONG?

By William J. Murray, Chairman, Religious Freedom Coalition

A short time before the passage of what is now known as Obama Care, I was one of a few people at a private lunch with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), one of the premiere conservatives in the House. She is pro-life and pro-family, as well as fiscally conservative. She has a firm understanding of how the current entitlement culture is destroying not only the financial foundations, but the social foundations of our nation. During the lunch Congresswoman Bachmann asked me what might seem an odd question to some, unless they knew that I had myself been raised in an atheistic, Marxist home in the 1960′s. She wanted to know why liberals can maintain such an attitude of superiority even when their concepts have been proven wrong so often and have led to such disasters.

Insert you and your children into this picture. . . .

I responded to Michele that the liberal mind functions according to “magic thought” which allows them to believe that their very opinions prove they have “evolved” further than other humans. Ultimately, I told her,
