Does Obama Know what a Lame Duck is?
By Dr. Phil Taverna
My guess is that Obama doesn’t think he is a Lame Duck president. But don’t tell him that he is.
He has saddled this country with enormous debt. And the albatross best known as ObamaCare. And I laugh […]
Politics is the process for making collective choices. Democratic politics endeavor to involve the “common man” because of his “common sense”: He has a right and the qualification to determine his destiny. Crucial assumptions support that thought. What people identify with produces an association which […]
Ever notice when you search for news or politics on Google News that the majority of search results tend to be articles from left-leaning publications? A search on Hillary Clinton today returns almost […]
Britain has “free” health care, which means it is run by the government and funded by taxpayers. Those on the left in the U.S. want to move to this model, which is often referred to as universal […]
Islam Infiltration of this administration, educational facilities at all levels and everyday life has increased to concerning levels. A good many in this administration have Muslim Brotherhood backgrounds, and have been brought to light by many fine writers in the past. There are other aspects that need to be brought forward for the American people […]
Good economic intentions often lead to bad unforeseen consequences.
In 1850, the French economist Frédéric Bastiat wrote an essay: “That which is seen, and that which is unseen”. He said this: “…it almost always happens that when the immediate consequence is favourable, the ultimate consequences are fatal, […]
The reaction of the mainstream Feminist movement to the rise of an idea called “Choice Feminism”, is probably the event that has done the most in recent years to reveal the true values that lie at that heart of that original movement. Choice Feminism declares […]
Constitutional conservatives were dismayed to learn that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away at age 79 on Saturday, during a quail hunting trip in Texas. He had served on the […]
A U.S. government official close to the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server said that at least a dozen other people saw “top secret” level intelligence within those emails. A second source who […]
David French, writing at National Review, (There’s a shocker!) accuses Donald Trump of being a Democrat because he challenges the “conservative” narrative on the Iraq War. This is a common theme that has filled social media and the conservative webosphere since last Saturday’s Republican debate. The problem for French and the rest of the interventionist […]
This past weekend America lost a great Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. He was the face of the originalist school of Constitutional interpretation. So it was quite ironic when many leading Republicans publicly said that the next President should select Scalia’s replacement. For Republicans, ostensibly defenders of the Constitution to take this stand was very […]
A common theme I have seen lately is the contention that Donald Trump is too uncouth and his populism too inchoate to be worthy of support from serious conservatives. This was a major theme of the recent National Review Against Trump issue. His behavior is not Presidential and his policies are not coherent enough we […]
Duly Noted by George Handlery To Shoot, Or Not To Shoot: That Will Be the Question. A lesson of the 20th century is that Europe master ineffectively her self-created crises. Naming the consequences demands that we get brutal to remain honest. Thus, as it involves the […]
The American middle class has been suffering for several years in the wake of the financial crisis that began at the end of President Bush’s second term, stretched into […]
Kathleen Willey, who told 60 Minutes she was sexually harassed by Bill Clinton, is taking a position as spokeswoman for a PAC opposing Hillary Clinton. Willey said she was groped by Bill Clinton in the Oval Office in 1993 […]
The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently released the national employment situation showing the unemployment rate to be 4.9% as of January 2016, a drop of .1% from December 2015. For the same […]
Christie was Wrong about Social Security!
By Dr. Phil Taverna
Governor Christie blew it at the Republican debate. The question was about entitlements. How did he get to My Social Security.
It should be clear to dumb Republicans like Christie and Ryan… Keep your dirty hands off my Social Security Checks. […]
The mostly Islamic refugees fleeing oppressive regimes like Syria and Iraq are increasing, not decreasing, and it is starting to bring out strong opposition in the European countries they are fleeing to. Considering […]
In the past few years I have noticed an increase in the use of the term constitutional conservative, usually to describe a candidate or politician who is associated with the Tea Party or is otherwise generally considered “more” conservative by degree. I have seen this term used a lot lately to describe Sen. Ted Cruz, […]
It is frequently stated that the United States is a nation of immigrants, but while that was once true, it is no longer true. We were a nation of immigrants during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries when […]
If the June 15, 2015 date is correct, the Magna Carta has been with Great Britain for eight centuries. British monarchs succeeding King John have renewed and reissued the charter, an exercise that in […]
Ever since Donald Trump’s rise to 2016-contender prominence, the rap on him, and perhaps part of his broad appeal, has been that he’s not a conservative. And he’s not — he’s a nationalistic populist. Yet […]
The American church has a problem. It’s one part fear, one part confusion and one part apathy. Pastors, priests and rabbis have long swallowed the false notion that all things religious and all things political […]
I read an article about Obama’s, “Christianity” in the Washington Post recently. The liberal media continually carries water for Obama, rationalizing his actions, spinning his dysfunction, and justifying his failures. Churchill […]
