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.
Doing so required something of [...]
Many of us could see that we hit the bottom of the conservative talent pool when George W. Bush had to be recruited from Texas just to avoid John McCain in 2000. Fourteen years later, conservatives are quite literally grasping at straws in the latest CPAC Presidential [...]
Wednesday brings us a House Communications Subcommittee hearing on the reauthorization of the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act (STELA).

Both “liberals” such as Hillary Clinton who recently compared Putin to Hitler and knee-jerk conservatives who see the crisis in the Ukraine as a Cold War II are in need of a more restrained, nuanced and intelligent view, taking into account both history and geography – two [...]
How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order was issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John [...]
In a few weeks my beloved New York Yankees will once again take the field for another opening day, one that brings many changes. Gone are the suspended Alex Rodriguez, the glorious game-ender Mariano Rivera and my personal favorite, Curtis Granderson, who has made the cross-town trip [...]
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 [...]
As Russia’s dictator Vladimir Putin annexes the Crimea in Ukraine and now plans troop movements to eastern Ukraine, not a shot has been fired. America and all of Europe stands mute or its petty bureaucrats like Secretary John Kerry pontificate empty rhetoric for fear of angering a [...]
As a social media following continues to be more important among public figures, a lot of people will go to any means necessary to make themselves look like they have more klout than they do.
Klout is a term that refers to one’s social media impact. For [...]
Without a general and profound moral reform of American society beginning with each individual American, no financial reform project will succeed or bear lasting fruit. Tweet [...]
The latest gun control law in Connecticut has crossed a very frightening line. A standoff has been created between the government and tens of thousands of gun owners now considered felons. It marks the beginning of an Orwellian new phase. Gun owners saw it coming, as evidenced [...]
The recent arrogant remarks by the President that he does not have to wait for Congress to act because he has a pen and phone are nothing less than throwing down a gauntlet to both humiliate and deprecate not just the Congress, but eventually the Supreme Court [...]
The Left is in a perpetual state of anti-free market angst. Even the barest inkling of private sector activity drives them bananas. They want to stop it – and if they can’t, they try to retard it as much as possible.
Their main impediment agent is [...]
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. [...]
The Washington Post Editorial Board has long had a government agriculture policy position that is actually grounded in Reality.
Going back at least half a decade – to the passage of the last terrible Farm Bill – they have been rightly pointing out that the Crony [...]
The release of the proposed Fiscal-Year 2015 Budget released on Tuesday reveals that President Barack Obama and his minions have not abandoned their mission to control guns in the hands of U.S. citizens, even after the abysmal failures last year in the liberal-left’s quest to pass their [...]
“We cannot have our right hand tied in our back and be asked to defend ourselves with our crippled left hand.” – Abdirahman Sheikh Issa The recent al-Shabaab attack at the heart of the government’s compound, Villa Somalia, marks a turning point; both in terms of the audacity of the group’s militancy and the massive [...]
As a Southern paleocon who has often argued with Unionist neocons over the virtue of the Union invasion of the South and the merits of Lincoln, the current events taking place in Ukraine and the neocons’ reaction to it has me scratching my head. Let’s see…
Neocons, especially those of the Straussian variety, allegedly oppose [...]
Let’s think about this for a minute. If I had a dime for every time I heard that from a woman, I would probably have a dollar. Like if we change to a woman that would make it better. If Barack Obama was a woman would his [...]
