Dear French personnes,
I’ve been deep in thought while drinking a Double Ristretto Venti Half-Soy Nonfat Organic Chocolate Brownie Iced Vanilla Double-Shot Gingerbread Frappuccino at Starbucks, and feel like I owe an apology to you people for ditching France last Sunday. I realize over 40 world […]
Although it is not without precedent, the number of contenders for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination exceeds two dozen. It’s actually a somewhat ridiculous situation – especially as the number of Democrat candidates at this point is essentially one. I also say ridiculous because I […]
Texas is a state with a unique image in many ways. This unique quality can be illustrated by the adventure a former colleague had on a visit to Germany during the 1980’s. A German woman, asked […]
So ten years ago I am on a short excursion to Paris with my wife and we are in a small grocery store buying a few items. While we are checking out at the register, the cashier picks up the bananas I had laid on the counter, […]
In its essence Marxism, the core ideology of modern Socialism, is an irrational, utopian and coercive perversion of human equality. Marxism seeks equality where equality does not exist, demanding legal enforcement of equal social outcomes, including those related to economics, higher education, athletics, religion and human sexuality. […]
Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, Department of Justice, and sundry other government agencies cannot be efficiently managed without great leadership in the Administration.
Politics has always been a full-contact sport and it is easy to see that one can become very beat-up and abused for standing […]
It’s so often the case that the best thing a person can do to improve his reputation is die. John F. Kennedy is now a legendary president, but would he be estimated so highly if he’d been able to end his political career as a man and […]
I love to see Bill Maher on TV. Now that Leno is gone he is showing up on Kimmel’s great show. Maher still doesn’t take credit for keeping Algore out of the Whitehouse. Now he wants to start a war! A war Obama should have continued 6 […]
A piece that appeared in the December 16, 2014 edition of the Cincinnati Enquirer entitled “Do charters take money from Cincinnati Public kids?” was, although technically correct, grossly misleading regarding charter school funding in Ohio.
The article states Ohio has authorized $3,600 in state taxpayer for each […]
A lesson from mankind’s experience is that all past generations have lived “interesting times.” Popular amnesia likes to lose sight of this, therefore, we think our day’s vicissitudes are unprecedented. That said it appears that we are departing from the cast of the past in […]

PRESIDENT STARTS NEW TERM OFF ON THE WRONG FOOT!

Given the volume of condemnation following the massacres in Paris I had decided against making any comment other than short condolences on Twitter and Facebook in which I quoted Winston Churchill: “This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be […]
War is raging. Now.
Unlike past wars, this is not being fought between two large armies on a battlefield. It isn’t being fought between two specific countries. It isn’t even being fought in any “traditional” way of warfare. This war is being fought in the midst of […]
Boehner’s problem with the militant right is not that he isn’t a conservative — he is — but that he is suave rather than confrontational. As an analogy, Baby Face Nelson was one of the most ruthless gangsters in history. Baby Face got his nickname for his […]
November’s election was an overwhelming, historic rebuke of what President Barack Obama and his Democrats are doing – and how they’re doing it.
But if you think the newly-minted major Republican majorities should serve as a roadblock to the Democrat agenda – well, that’s yet another thing […]
Linking arm-in-arm and marching for a cause is EXACTLY what a community organizer does. To protest for a just cause and show solidarity with a aggrieved population against the unjust acts of a violent and tyrannical group is something that an self-avowed activist like Barack Obama would […]
The Affordable Care Act is a lie
I am deeply grateful to Rachel Alexander and Steve Laib of The Intellectual Conservative for their willingness to carry this series of excerpts from my new e-book, Your Personal Affordable Care Act: How To Avoid Obamacare. As conservatives, we need to speak bluntly about the fact […]
Last week, John Boehner (R-Ohio) easily won re-election as Speaker of the House. Only 25 Republicans defected, with 216 Republicans voting for him. In the days before the election, there was a flurry of emails and activity on social media about the vote, calling on […]
Aside from the three Muslim men who perpetrated the deadliest terror attack in France since 1961, there are some other individuals complicit in the Wednesday massacre. They have names such as Hollande, Merkel, Löfven and Obama. Their connection to the act will largely go […]
“Another attack in the name of religion,” I heard someone say after the vicious and vile Wednesday assault on the offices of French magazine Charlie Hebdo. And there is a huge problem with “religion.” But it’s not what you think.
Question: when the Nazis, Stalinists, Khmer […]
On December 11th, Robert Nordlander, a household name to anyone who habitually read the opinion pages in the Appleton Post-Crescent, passed away after a lingering illness.
Nordlander was also once a columnist in a publication that I currently write a monthly column for and, some years ago […]
Unfortunately, illegal aliens have been voting in U.S. elections for years now, in pretty much every state and most Americans have no clue about it. Furthermore, election data indicates that they vote overwhelmingly for Democrats.
Most Americans assume that illegal aliens are not able to vote in […]
In the aftermath of the Islamic terrorist attack in Paris, France, on Wednesday — an attack that left 12 journalists and cops dead — cities throughout the world are increasing alert levels especially those in Western nations, according to a number of reports. However, the terrorists’ crown-jewel […]
