Americans are rightly appalled at the cavalcade of outrages and affronts that emanate daily from Washington. Since Barack Obama was inaugurated in January of 2009, such detestable episodes as “Fast and Furious” and Benghazi (either of which would once have been sufficient to sink a presidency) are [...]
A book came out recently about Eliot Ness. If you are old enough you grew up watching Robert Stack beating down the gangsters in Chicago the home of our president. Or should I say where Obama has a home of sorts. There was [...]
In the 2000s, the Democratic Senate leader and former KKK Kleagle Robert Byrd (WV), dropped the n-word twice in national news interview. Never mind that the democratic party choose a former KKK Kleagle who admitted his interest in politics and leadership was stirred during his tenure with [...]
At the risk of sounding overly sentimental, watching the Yankees captain step up to the plate at his last All-Star Game this week brought tears to my eyes and made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. If you are a [...]
The above title is a question I have been asking for the last 5 years. As the economy continued in the doldrums one has to wonder. Now many of you may be asking who is Peggy Joseph? The answer is that she is the woman who, in [...]
It is unwise, as it might take one toward misleading results, to investigate a case in a manner that limits the inquiry towards one’s first impression.
On the other hand, if it looks like a duck, if it sounds like a duck, if it walks [...]
Matt Lauer gives The Captain love.
Derek Jeter has been a darned good ballplayer; but the media hype surrounding his final appearance at the All-Star Game transformed him into a god. Is progressive guilt lurking here?
I have spent my life in the belly of the beast. For nearly forty years, I have lived in Montgomery County, Maryland, which borders Washington, DC on its north side. This might not be the most liberal county in the nation, but it is certainly [...]
Longtime establishment favorite Senator Thad Cochran may have stolen the Republican runoff election in Mississippi, but Chris McDaniel is fighting back. [...]
That was, in part, how former First Lady / U.S. Senator / Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that business owners with religious objections can refuse to pay for health insurance policies that cover contraception.
“I obviously disagree” [...]
As Palestinian terrorists rockets continue to rain down on Israel, targeting the Jewish population, President Barack Obama offered the help of the United States on Thursday “in negotiating a cease-fire to end escalating violence between Israel and Hamas.” But critics of the Obama administration believe [...]
Comes now to respectful international attention a volume entitled War and Gold: A 500-Year History of Empires, Adventures, and Debt by Member of Parliament Kwasi Kwarteng. This near-perfect volume appears with almost preternaturally perfect timing around the centenary of [...]
It was headlining AOL on Friday, a story about a woman stabbing a schoolteacher to death in front of a class of five and six-year-olds. The gruesome and bloody crime occurred in the southern French town of Albi; the victim was a 34-year-old mother of two.
Unanimous Supreme Court rulings are certainly noteworthy. When a case lines up every single Justice – appointed by Democrats and Republicans both – the decision must be unbelievably clear cut.
Nine-to-nothings don’t happen very often. The ever-overreaching Barack Obama Administration, however, is in historic fashion racking them [...]
In 2016, if America does not correct the imbalance imposed on this nation by a socialist President who has opened our national coffers to entitlement seekers and created a situation where over half of this nation is now on some from of entitlement or subsidy, has designated [...]
During the Sunday morning news shows, a number of Republicans and advocates for legal immigration called on The President Barack Obama to deport the children — and adults hiding among them – as they amass at the Texas border and that deportation should to take place immediately. [...]
Recently I read a post that stated something I have heard numerous times; “religious convictions have no place in influencing legislation in a secular society.” By the word “secular,” I can’t help wondering if they mean non-ecclesiastical or demonstrably irreligious. While our Founders certainly created a functional [...]
The pernicious effect of government warping markets is absolute – and the evidence is obvious and everywhere.
When 300+ million Americans (and when 8+ billion worldwide are able to) make their own decisions, markets constantly morph to accommodate those decisions – and the maximum amount [...]
There is only one reason for House Republicans to sue Obama over his many treasonous acts against this country, the legal citizens of this nation and our Constitution – to avoid taking any real constitutional action. It’s a blatant act of cowardice!
The only constitutional solution for [...]
Kirsten Powers shows up on Fox News quite often. She used to be a liberal commentator of sorts but she seemed to be leaning to the right. She even admitted she did not vote for Obama in 2012. Obviously she admired him in 2008. She looked a [...]
Texas officials on Thursday claimed that President Barack Obama and his administration are turning U.S. military installations into “‘refugee camps” instead of working to secure the U.S.-Mexico border as a human tsunami illegal alien children flood the nation’s immigration system. One U.S. congressman scolded President Barack Obama [...]
I recently encountered a piece of commentary entitled Moral Equivalence, Moral Idiocy by Bruce Thornton; an excellent item explaining exactly what is going on in the “Arab-Israeli dispute.” It reminds me, in some ways of a piece written by Israeli commentator Ephraim Kishon that I read in 1968 or thereabouts, in the wake of the [...]
Jihadism has declared war on all other systems, ways of life and cultures. Ignoring that excuses the momentary denial of the implications. There is a reason; confronting such threats contradicts PC-approved “solutions”.
News suppression is the preferred approach of our political elites who shun the [...]
