If 2004 had one code word, it might be "values." But as Humpty Dumpty said, a word can mean whatever one chooses it to mean. Indeed, nuanced voices on values often were lost in the clash of extreme sound bites . . . [Click for more]

COLUMNS


Adam Graham column
The sin of divorce



Adam Graham

January 3, 2005
Adam Graham

The words were said countless thousands of times last year as a minister concluded the ceremony. "What God hath joined together, let no man put asunder." But so often man and woman do.

While gay marriage has been roundly condemned in most churches (and rightly so), you will not hear much about divorce . . . [Click for more]

Electromagnetic pulse: an avoidable disaster


Paul Weyrich

Paul Weyrich

Although the risk of your house catching fire and burning to the ground is remote, are you willing to risk not having fire insurance?

That's a question that Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) poses, and the answer that I think you and I would give without hesitation is "no" . . . [Click for more]

Pay up, sit still, and damage your bladder: theater economics



Jonathan David
Morris

January 3, 2005
Jonathan David Morris

You know how sometimes, when you're so hungry that you're borderline delusional, all you see when you look at someone is a nice, juicy turkey? Well, all right, I'm probably confusing real life with Looney Tunes again. But the point is, I think that's how movie theaters see moviegoers nowadays. They're so money hungry, these theaters, that they don't see a human when you walk through the door . . . [Click for more]



Frank Gaffney column
Hobson's choices



Frank Gaffney

January 3, 2005
Frank Gaffney

A few weeks ago, two Republican Congressmen — Reps. Duncan Hunter of California and James Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin — were widely denounced for defying the will of the majority. These respected legislators, who chair respectively the House Armed Services and Judiciary Committees, had the temerity to insist that several recommendations of the 9/11 Commission that had been adopted by the full House of Representatives be included in the final version of controversial "intelligence reform" legislation . . .

Bin Laden's warning: obey or die


Barbara J. Stock


January 2, 2005
Barbara J. Stock

Once again, Osama Bin Laden, hero to many in the Islamic world, has spoken. What did he say? Basically he said, "Do as I say or die." If Iraqis dare to vote for their own future, they will be considered "infidels" which in Muslim-speak means that they will become fair and legal targets. Not only will those voting be fair game but so will their children, wives, parents, and probably the family dog as well . . . [Click for more]

Attorney: Bernardin lied, visited crime scene



Matt C. Abbott

January 2, 2005
Matt C. Abbott

The late Joseph Cardinal Bernardin was a controversial figure. Beloved by some and scorned by others, the cardinal for many years exercised immense influence in the Catholic Church in the U.S. He died of pancreatic cancer in 1996.

In 1993, Bernardin was accused of sexual abuse by a former seminarian, Steven Cook, who died of AIDS not long after "recanting" his allegation, saying his memories were "unreliable" . . . [Click for more]

Vincent Fiore

Vincent Fiore

Have you heard the news? America, under the leadership of George W.

Just about a week prior to Christmas, the governor of Illinois felt compelled by the spirit of the season to propose extensive prohibitions on the sale of video games.

These are the times (and tough questions) that try men's souls



Sharon Hughes

January 1, 2005
Sharon Hughes

A little over three years ago Americans faced one of the biggest violations in our history — the terrorist attack of 9/11. Because of it we have a heightened empathy for the victims of the 12/26 earthquake- generated-tsunami in southern Asia. The world has committed millions of dollars of aid, with Americans pledging the greatest amount of $350 million, so far . . . [Click for more]

The free speech congressman: Walter Jones v. Lyndon Johnson



John Plecnik

December 31, 2004
John Plecnik

In a world where most politicos are content to toe the Party line and few dare violate the precepts of political correctness, one congressman has taken a stand. U.S. Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) has chosen to make free speech a defining issue of his career, and he is campaigning hard to extend First Amendment rights everywhere from college campuses to religious congregations . . .

Edward Daley

I'm getting damned tired of being made to feel like I have to defend the United States of America against accusations made by people from other countries who consistently prove themselves to be lacking in any respectability or honor whatsoever, and I think it's about time I expressed a few of my more contentious views concerning the "international community" in general . . .

Steve Kellmeyer column
Cutting loose baby



Steve Kellmeyer

December 30, 2004
Steve Kellmeyer

"Fetus Cut From Slain Woman's Body" the headlines screamed, as schizophrenia became the order of the day. Virtually every article on the latest incident of in vivo tissue-knapping vacillated on correct terminology. Should they refer to the contents of the uterus as a fetus or a baby? Was Bobbi Jo Stinnett, the murdered woman, a mother or a mother-to-be? . . . [Click for more]

The extinction of deism: Historical riddle solved & lessons for today


Fred Hutchison


December 30, 2004
Fred Hutchison

Deism had a rapid rise to popularity and an even more rapid fall into oblivion. The rapid extinction of the once popular and politically influential Deism in the early nineteenth century is an old riddle of history — which has now been solved by Avery Cardinal Dulles with important lessons for today . . .

Will Republicans seize the opportunity to govern?



Chris Adamo

December 29, 2004
Chris Adamo

Political operatives on both sides of the aisle are discussing the 2008 election as if it is only days away. But hardly a dismissal of the important issues facing President Bush in his second term, this talk of the next presidential race is representative of the pivotal changes in the political landscape that occurred last November . . .

Paris Hilton in '08

Isaiah Z. Sterrett

WE'RE ALL huffing and puffing about the best, brightest, and most memorable players of 2004 — and we're all apparently obliged to include Paris Hilton. I don't know why. Is it the sheer novelty of stripping for fame that attracts us? (Personally, I've never heard of such a thing.) Or is it the amazing fact that Ms. Hilton, a rich woman, proved herself as classless as a background-dancer in a Madonna video? . . . [Click for more]

Doctors kill more people per year than guns



Nathan Tabor

December 29, 2004
Nathan Tabor

Back before the November election, many mainstream media pundits — trying desperately to get John Kerry elected — began to harp on President Bush's unwillingness to stop certain federal gun control laws from expiring as scheduled. But their propaganda efforts came to naught because this issue was a non-starter with the American people . . . [Click for more]

Doug Hagin

Ah yes, the new year of 2005 is here and ahead lays 365 days of tears, laughs, love, hate controversy, pride, shame and who knows what else for us all. In addition, if you write a column, as I do, you are expected to write one dedicated to New Years Day. Moreover, typically that column will either be a look back, as in reviewing the preceding year. Alternatively, it will be a look ahead at what might happen in the newly born year . . . [Click for more]

OUR VISION


MESSAGE FROM ALAN KEYES

Welcome to RenewAmerica.us, and to the community we are building here of Americans determined to make our nation worthy again of the gifts we have received from Providence, and from our Founders. Everything I have done in my public life has rested on the truth that, in America, it is the people who make good things happen, because it is the people who have the Founding principles of America most deeply in their hearts. RenewAmerica.us is dedicated to the vision of a nation renewed by the labor of its common citizens, working together with intelligence and determination.

Working together, we can restore our people's confidence in their ability to govern themselves wisely and well. We can remind the American people that our Founders made no mistake when they wrote that God created us all equal in dignity. Working together, we can begin to remember what it is like for a free people to live together as fellow citizens, as friends, as a free people, under God.

The resources available on this carefully and wisely constructed website are intended as a catalyst for the real engine of reform in America:  the principled energy you bring to the job, and are willing to share with others. Please join me in making RenewAmerica.us the center of your participation in the renewal of American liberty.

Alan Keyes
