The political definition of Cronyism is: government policy that favors one or more specific beneficiaries – at the expense of everyone else. To wit: $80 billion of the 2009 “Stimulus” was wasted on “green energy” companies – 80% of whom were Barack Obama donors. Amongst the parade […]
Atop the list of very hot topics in the USA circa 2015 is the topic of refugee resettlement, the importing of problem children from parts of the world that do not like America much. And in a post 9-11 America, with the free world still at war […]
It is funny how all the late nights have become more liberal than Letterman. And is it really a good idea. Last week Jimmy had Hillary on. And I thought he was going to climb on her lap and give her a Christmas list.
Kimmel is a […]
In a few weeks hundreds of representatives of foreign governments and the U.S. will be meeting in Paris, France to further consolidate and solidify their ambitions for socialism’s planet-wide control over businesses and individuals at the altar of climate change. (The term socialism, in regards to the […]
President Barack Obama condemned the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris and pledged whatever help the United States can provide to French authorities. But his critics aren’t about to let Americans forget how Obama practically claimed victory in a television interview on Friday morning with ABC’s George Stephanapolous
Ted Cruz rocked in the presidential race during the CNBC debate. His biggest breakthrough, even more important than his crowd-pleasing holding the media to account, was his credible prescription to get job creation, and equitable prosperity, roaring the way they roared in the Reagan days.
Cruz thereby […]
The latest edition of Reinhild Niebuhr’s 1954 The Irony of American History features a cover page blurb from Mr. Obama giving prevalence (or platitude) to Niebuhr’s influence. Post-World War II, Niebuhr’s concern was to caution against overstating America’s role in the world. Care must be given, […]
If you’re outraged and don’t know why, but, since your BFFs are, you are too, then this column is for you.
Trigger warning: If you’re one of those precious little snowflakes who #StandWithMizzou and support the #MillionStudentMarch, be warned: the following contains potentially “hurtful” microaggressions that may […]
In 1688 England experienced its ‘Glorious Revolution’, transitioning nonviolently to a constitutional monarchy. As part of the changes associated with that event, control of the money, which had always been the prerogative of all monarchs, was kept from the Crown and (eventually) put in the hands of the […]
Does the left believe its own rhetoric?
Take the environment:
Ronald Reagan’s son, Michael Reagan notes that
Most of us, when we think “windmills” call up quaint, colorful wooden structures in the Netherlands. But today’s power–generating wind turbines can equal the height of a 30–story building. The end of the blades reach speeds approaching 170 […]
It appears I was brought up in a country much different than now. I was taught that everyone should be treated with respect, and that that respect was the foundation for all my interactions with others. Based on Christian beliefs, foremost being do no harm to others became a part of everyday life. Along with […]

Two distinct groups have now formed among the eight top Republican Party candidates. The first group is the patriots made up of Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul. The second group is the statists made up of Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Carley Fiorina, and John Kasich. On almost every issue in Tuesday […]
Whenever the controversial issue of immigration is debated, bleeding-heart liberals and West-hating leftists will trot out the following reasons to justify it. They’re passed off as though they’re self-evident facts only racist Nazis would dare to deny. However, if one gets past the faux moral outrage accompanied with predictable ad hominem slurs and looks a […]
I really love and will always celebrate liberals eating their own like this. Live by the sword, die by the sword!
University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe resigned this week under pressure from students and faculty for essentially nothing that can be discerned with any intellectual honesty. Really. Here’s a timeline of events and if […]
There has been a lot of news coverage of both the University of Missouri and the events that have led to what is happening now, and a video of Yale students going ballistic over Halloween costumes and the naming of a building. The conflict over Halloween costumes was started when the Intercultural Affairs Committee sent […]
Recently social medial and the conservative sphere of the internet erupted with outrage when Rick Wilson, an Establishment Republican campaign consultant, suggested that the Establishment needed to “put a bullet in Donald Trump.” While Mr. Wilson’s choice of words was obviously inappropriate, I think all the outrage on the right unfortunately caused an important point […]
The Vice President is fantastic. If the American voters had a half a brain, they would make him president. But is America exceptional and can it stay that way. And why are the liberals like Obama trying to make the United States of America just ordinary. And is […]
Financial reporter Rick Santelli — who triggered the Tea Party movement — put a profound question to Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in the CNBC presidential economic debate. Santelli’s key question was about the impact of the Fed on job creation and economic growth.

In a recent segment on MSNBC, Melissa Harris-Perry called out a guest for uttering the phrase “Hard Work”, comparing the phrase to slavery. Her contention was that using phrases such as “hard work” evoked memories of a dark period in the world’s history where slavery was an accepted practice. Slave owners bought the slaves and […]
In the past few weeks we have been witness to the long time lies and bias of the media elite. In the Republican debate we had moderators who used debunked facts to make the Republicans on the stage to look bad. John Harwood of the New York Times used a lie in a question to […]
Last Monday, Federal District Court Judge David Bury held an evidentiary hearing in Tucson to consider new evidence that prosecutorial wrongdoing took place during the criminal prosecution of imprisoned former Congressman Rick Renzi.
