Ah, nostalgia! Merriam-Webster online defines it as, ”pleasure and sadness that is caused by remembering something from the past and wishing that you could experience it again.” And so it was that I experienced an acute pang of pleasant wistfulness as I watched Hillary Clinton’s hair-tossing attempts […]
“Again we are all sprung from a heavenly seed, all have that same Father…”
~ Lucretius, On the Nature of Things, Book II
If thou art pained by any external thing, it is not this that disturbs thee, but thy own judgment about it. And […]
The Tea Party is sweeping America. […]
The following is a transcript of a talk given at the Maryland Center-Right Group on June 12, 2014
I’ll begin with a few words about America, its historical ideals, which, of course, conservatives treasure and seek to preserve; and then I’ll discuss where Israel fits into the […]
To understand the compelling appeal of Dave Brat’s message in his primary campaign against Eric Cantor, we need to go back to the founding of America as a nation.
When Thomas Jefferson first saw the Constitution of the United States he was said to have been utterly dismayed. But it was not […]
Rand Paul has bungled the immigration issue again. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time.
My hunch about Rand has always been that he believes very much like his father.* but he is playing a political game because he wants to be President. But unlike some, I don’t […]
MORE BRAVE (RCMP) POLICE HEROES MOURNED IN CANADA:
FALLEN MONCTON RCMP OFFICER’S POLICE DOG, DANNY, BREAKS THE HEARTS OF CANADIANS AS HE WHIMPERS AT FUNERAL
ENOUGH TO BREAK YOUR HEART
MY OWN RESPONSE
Of course, my sympathy goes out to the family, friends and colleagues of these unjustly “assassinated” RCMP police heroes, in Canada’s […]
Something remarkable is taking place in our mother country. Late last month, a third party on the right overtook both major political parties in a national election, as significantly more people in England voted for the right over the left. The UK Independence Party (UKIP) […]
For the last several years American political analysts have been politely arguing about exactly what was going on in the Oval Office. Was Barack Obama ignorant, or misguided, or simply foolish in his conduct? After all, his foreign policy actions looked as if he was completely out of touch with the reality of the […]
We’ve seen it in too many sectors of the economy to possibly mention – both domestically and internationally. The greater the government involvement in an economic sector – the greater the ensuing economic damage. To that sector – and the broader economy.
Every additional upward ratchet […]
And a happy “Gitmo Sell-Out, By America’s Most Inept President In History, Day” to all readers.
This morning I’d like to put on my investor adviser hat (https://twitter.com/MurraySoupcoff) and talk about what is probably the second most interesting topic after Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Saturday night suggestion that Barack Obama should be IMPEACHED (http://beforeitsnews.com/obama/2014/05/judge-jeanine-unleashed-impeach-obama-2463070.html)
Now there’s […]
About self-administered verbal anesthesia.
Every age and all cultures tend to accept certain statements as self-evident and, therefore, as true. The term, “crutch” comes to mind. One possibility is that the allegation is correct. Even for agnostics, the Ten Commandments might fit the category. […]
If you haven’t seen Jim Sharpe’s interview with Andrew Thomas, please watch, it’s good. He has a proven record of not compromising, and still won’t. I’m very excited he got 40% of the vote in a Maricopa GOP straw poll. The next two closest candidates didn’t even get 20% each. This despite the fact that […]
The Republican Party stands at the precipice of leading America back from the cultural, economic, legislative, and diplomatic disasters of the Obama years, except that in recent decades it has proven itself devoid of the necessary courage, leadership, or ideology to accomplish such a feat. Instead, it […]
In the UK there’s an organisation, by the name Unite Against Fascism (UAF), which says that its primary aim is to “fight against racism and fascism”. This is what it says on the tin: “We believe that these dangers [“fascism” and “racism”] require a strong and united […]
The Veterans Administration (VA) has been a disaster since just about its inception. Because it is government-only monopoly single-payer health care. Championed by the exact same people dying to impose it on all the rest of us.
Then-Community Organizer Barack Obama:
“I happen to be […]
It has been an important hallmark of the conservative movement during its 50 year run to point to the steady decline of Western Civilization; to a broad disrespect for the rule of law in general, and specifically in the areas of religion, education and government. But many […]
In reporting on the Navy’s reported new acquisition of helicopters for the president to be delivered in 2020, The Washington Post opens:
The last time the Pentagon tried to upgrade the president’s coolest ride — the fleet of helicopters that drop him at his doorstep on the […]
The Media Marxist Left pushing the terrible Internet policy known as Network Neutrality oft are absurdly called “consumer groups.”
Major U.S. Consumer Groups Support (Federal Communications Commission) FCC Action on Net Neutrality
They want Net Neutrality because they want a single-payer government Web – they […]
The latest Muslim rationalisations for the 1,400 year-old war between Islam and all that is non-Islamic involve the so-called “occupations” of Muslim countries; as well as the military actions (including drone attacks) carried out by Western states in Muslim countries. Take Asghar Bukhari (a British Pakistani) of […]
It is time once again for a reality check, which may be difficult to achieve amid the liberal fanfare over the negotiated release of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held captive by the Taliban since his “capture” in 2009. If all of the joyous proclamations on the nightly news are any indication, the […]
Once again, the American people have been betrayed by the Obama administration and blatantly lied to by administration officials. The anti-American Islam-friendly Obama regime has unilaterally and in violation of U.S. law, traded five high risk Taliban leaders detained at Club Gitmo for a traitor to the […]
