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 […]

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 […]
When name-calling descends to divisive intolerance over the right name to call terrorists who killed 12 innocent victims in France, it is time for a time out to focus on the real issue: Uniting the vast spectrum of opinions behind the principle that anyone who seeks to […]
“Offend a Christian and he is obliged to pray for your salvation. Offend a Muslim and he is obliged to murder you.” So observed conservative journalist Robert Stacy McCain in the wake of this week’s horrific Charlie Hebdo massacre in France.
And then we have Islam’s useful […]
The following is the transcript of a talk given to the Maryland Center-Right Coalition on January 8, 2015
Many of the people in this room are long-time political activists. I admire your dedication to the task. The countless hours that you spend: in planning sessions, cultivating […]
After a brief respite for traveling, I am once again back in the United States, planning my next attempt at my prize. But my attention is attracted by the undercurrent of sentiment against the man Boehner who is the current Speaker of the […]
One of the secular left’s latest windmills at which to tilt is America’s fanciful “rape culture.” There is a universal ethos of violence against women, as they imagine it, that stems from a millennia-old global patriarchy chiefly derived from religion in general and Judeo-Christianity in particular (another […]
The American people in November overwhelmingly, historically rebuked President Barack Obama, his policies and his unilateral practices.
The President his own self primed the pump for the election as a referendum – on him.
Obama: My ‘Policies Are On the Ballot. Every Single One of Them.’
One, and only one, candidate, Barack Obama, caught the X-factor and improbably got himself nominated and elected, and re-elected, president. Another improbable candidate could catch it again.
What is that X-factor? How does it upend things?
Peace and personal security continued to flourish in 2014 and are […]
Bipartisanship in Washington, D.C. has for the most part devolved into a pipe dream, a dirty word – or both.
A pipe dream because after decades of gerrymandering – partisanship is what you get. Gerrymandering is elected officials choosing voters rather than the other way round. Those […]
