Admittedly, few on the political right ever anticipated anything else, since the historical track record of [...]
The recent CPAC conference and poll is beyond disturbing. It’s downright frightening…
CPAC is allegedly a political action committee of, by and for “conservative” political operatives. But you won’t be able to prove that by the results of the most recent meeting, which resulted in 2016 Presidential [...]

The President’s popularity is crashing, congressional Democrats are on the run, and America is about to make a shift to the “right” in the upcoming elections –right? I’ll believe it when I see it. The electoral outcomes of this year are still unknown, but this we do [...]
With his thoughtful restructuring of America’s military, secretary of defense Chuck Hagel — a Republican — has cemented Obama’s signature legacy: restoring America to a peacetime footing. Obama’s bringing American troops home from two wars, and, now, reducing the military to a strong, but proportionate, peacetime footing, was not easy.

Like a rapidly advancing malignancy, the pattern of lawlessness and corruption exhibited by Barack Obama and his appointed minions is predictably spreading to other levels of government. It is unfortunate and dangerous that Obama now routinely flouts the law, either by openly asserting that he will not [...]
It is always amusing to see Obama micro-manage the global economy. After all a community organizer should be able to do that. So Obama wants to raise the amount that a salary must be to exclude overtime.
The NY Times a liberal rag chimed in today [...]
