The concept that the whims of public opinion, the fads of the moment, or the opinions of an ideological opponent should fundamentally alter what a particular political party stands for has always seemed rather odd to me. It is an argument I see trotted out in articles […]
A preferred ploy of left-wing change agents is to ridicule critics when they point out the undeniable parallels between the goals of today’s “progressive” movement, to include the Democratic Party in general, and the goals of the early, and very much still alive, communist movement.
If, for […]
As a major power Russia has always had a problem. That problem is its coastline, or rather the lack thereof. Compare it to America and its three coasts, all of which have numerous warm water port facilities, and the problem becomes stark. Russia has a lot of coast, but much of it is either […]
Past aggression is resolutely fought but the present’s cases are met with restraint.
Much that comments upon Russia’s Crimean adventure is self-serving. Some moves are made to act as excuses to:
(1) Maintain the moral high ground while
(2) A costly response is avoided […]
The Brussels’ home of the U.S. Ambassador to NATO received $704,198 in gardening and landscaping services. The purchase included, “960 violas, 960 tulips, 960 begonias, 72 Japanese evergreen shrubs, 504 ivy geraniums, 168 hybrid heath evergreen shrubs, 204 American wintergreens, and […]
After young and healthy Marine Matt Parker fought for his country in the Middle East, he mysteriously came down with tumors. Now, he finds himself without adequate help from the country he fought for. I’ve known Matt since he was a small child; our families grew […]
Here is a joke, entitled “Looking for Work,” that has worked its way around the Internet:
An Israeli doctor says: “In Israel, medicine is so advanced that we cut off a man’s testicles, put them on another man and in 6 weeks, he is […]
Will Americans continue allowing a radicalized environmental agenda to animate Washington, one that prohibits the utilization of natural resources – oil in particular – and that squelches the nation’s economy? Or could it be that, at such a time as this, rationality might take-hold in the USA yet again?
As if our own problems aren’t […]
During an interview with Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto on Friday, the man known by many as “America’s Toughest Sheriff” said he believes that the Obama administration’s claim that more people in the U.S. illegally have been deported than ever before since President Barack Obama took office […]
It is interesting how wealthy liberals are continually blaming the American middle class for global warming, terrorism, and pretty much all of the world’s problems. Simply put, it is all your fault. Our Consumption Factor Imperils Us All (http://www.international.ucla.edu/asia/news/article.asp?parentid=87722) “People in the third world are aware of […]
The Democratic-leaning Washington Post recently assessed the chances of the Republicans taking a Senate majority this year as, quite possibly, almost as high as two to one. True enough, and significant. Yet… in inventorying the most obvious races the big politicos are, for now, overlooking the most […]
The United States and Japan are at the trade negotiation table – for the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
The 2005 Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement (TPSEP or P4) is a trade agreement among Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, and Singapore….
(T)he US joined the TPP in […]
In the months following the October 1, 2013 unveiling of Obamacare, Americans across the political spectrum have been appalled at how the whole operation was thoroughly bungled from beginning to end. Admittedly, few on the political right ever anticipated anything else, since the historical track record of […]
The recent CPAC conference and poll is beyond disturbing. It’s downright frightening…
CPAC is allegedly a political action committee of, by and for “conservative” political operatives. But you won’t be able to prove that by the results of the most recent meeting, which resulted in 2016 Presidential […]
Again, where the people are absolute rulers of the land, they rejoice in having the openness and exuberance of youth, while a tyrant counts this a danger, and seeks to slay or silence those possessed of spirit, while the discreet fear his power and violence.
~Euripides, The […]
Leftists, on the main, are profound believers in and espousers of Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution – when it comes to how the Earth and its flora and fauna have developed.
They also accuse we on the Right of wholly dismissing it. (Well, I’m a buyer […]
The President’s popularity is crashing, congressional Democrats are on the run, and America is about to make a shift to the “right” in the upcoming elections –right? I’ll believe it when I see it. The electoral outcomes of this year are still unknown, but this we do […]
With his thoughtful restructuring of America’s military, secretary of defense Chuck Hagel — a Republican — has cemented Obama’s signature legacy: restoring America to a peacetime footing. Obama’s bringing American troops home from two wars, and, now, reducing the military to a strong, but proportionate, peacetime footing, was not easy.
Doing so required something of […]
Many of us could see that we hit the bottom of the conservative talent pool when George W. Bush had to be recruited from Texas just to avoid John McCain in 2000. Fourteen years later, conservatives are quite literally grasping at straws in the latest CPAC Presidential […]
