From transportation to energy, and everything in between, should the government invest money in as many promising projects as possible? Or would that actually doom many of those ventures to failure? Burt Folsom, historian and professor at Hillsdale College, answers those questions by drawing on the fascinating history of the race to build America’s railroads and airplanes.
Iran going nuclear is not just about Israel.
Obama, playing the standard leftist Jew-card, would have us believe that those pesky Jews are getting in the way of his faux negotiations with a genocidal yearning Islamist state. But the truth is, Iran as a nuclear threshold power is a direct threat to world freedom.
When Democrats boycott Netanyahu’s speech, they are not just boycotting the Jewish State, they are boycotting freedom itself.

Not a single member of the Obama administration attended Bibi’s speech.
As Bret Stephens points out, the Democrat party no longer supports Israel.
Seraphic Secret would add, the Democrat party no longer supports liberty.
The irony of this entire Democrat exercise in bad faith is that more people will pay attention to Netanyahu’s speech because Obama and the Democrats are acting like petulant children.

Said John Adams, “There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”
For the first time, and never again, the first day of Chanukah will be celebrated on Thanksgiving. This is a moment in time we should all treasure.
Thanksgiving and Chanukah both celebrate religious freedom. The Pilgrims fled religious oppression to make a new life on foreign shores. The Jewish revolt against the Assyrian empire was a battle for religious freedom against a tyrannical government.
The early Pilgrims so closely identified with the Jewish people that they considered making Hebrew the language of this new land.

Here’s another question: Can America survive another four years of Barack Obama and the top-down, central planning statists of the Democrat party?
What’s good for America is good for Israel. And what brings ruin to America also brings ruin to Israel. This social, geo-political equation has its roots in our shared histories. Both Israel and America are the only two countries on the face of the earth that were founded upon the twin ideas of religious and national liberty.
America is made up of a people who fled illiberal, intolerant countries in order to become Americans. Israel is the biblical home of the Jewish people who, after millenia of exile, oppression and genocide, returned to their homeland in order to become a free people.
