Bipartisanship in Washington, D.C. has for the most part devolved into a pipe dream, a dirty word – or both.

Although man-made global warming has been thoroughly exposed as an embarrassing scam, the green movement is strangely expanding, not retreating. A member of Congress privately told me this is because the green movement is completely driven by […]
The Affordable Care Act is a lie. Author’s Note:
I am deeply grateful to Rachel Alexander and Steve Laib of The Intellectual Conservative for their willingness to carry this series of excerpts from my new e-book, Your Personal Affordable Care Act: How To Avoid Obamacare. As conservatives, we need to speak bluntly about the fact […]
It would be best if Speaker Boehner were replaced by Louie Gohmert. Failing that, true conservatives should give RINOs a taste of their own medicine. If there are not enough votes for Gohmert, here is a practical method for ousting the RINO Speaker by maximizing the leverage of a relatively few genuine conservatives.
I had a non-Jewish girlfriend my first year at College some four decades ago. I remember being at her home one day and visiting with her and her mother. The mood was light and we were kidding one another, and then her mother said to me that […]
“The trail is lost, the path is hid, and winds that blow from out the ages sweep me on to that chill borderland where Time’s spent sands engulf lost people and lost trails.”
These lines, written by poet Marion Manville Pope, are credited with inspiring James Earle […]
The display of thousands of law enforcement officials representing departments and agencies throughout the country standing in the streets of the Queens section of New York City on Saturday, to honor one of two police officers assassinated last week, was a sight not seen since the large […]
Pyongyang, evidence shows, effected a spectacular data breach of Sony Pictures to express its wrath over Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogan’s The Interview, a movie about an attempt to assassinate Kim Jong-un. Neither the United States Secret Service nor the North Korean authorities take portrayals of the […]
American Democrats have been trying for decades to establish a form of Socialism cloaked as progressivism or liberalism as this country’s form of governance. Although it has been disguised in various forms, using a multitude of names and with different leadership, the consistent socialist theme is what […]
As recently as 1989, The General Assembly (State Legislature) of Pennsylvania passed House Resolution No. 189 declaring a “Geography Awareness Week” in the State. It would have been more fitting for the U.S. Congress to pass it but the results would probably have been equally fruitless. Unless […]
While most people in the world on Wednesday bid farewell to 2014 and welcomed 2015, Islamic terrorists sent out their own brand of New Year greetings in the only way they know: killing the innocent and destroying public or private property. Although, the U.S. news media is […]
Forgiveness not met by regret implies subjugation.
The practical use of history is its distorted exploitation. This abuse accompanies the following discourse about the present.
Perceived developments that disturb the world order and our holiday peace produce sundry responses. Some are echoes of a […]
Since forming a presidential exploratory committee earlier this month, Jeb Bush is being considered a serious Republican candidate for president. But as George Will astutely pointed out last week, Bush has two significant hurdles; his support for Common Core and […]
Science is the process of determining the behavior of matter (the universe) using observation, testing (controlled observation), and reason; with reason defined as the ability to observe, comprehend and accept self-evident truth.
[Reason is] “the discovery of the certainty or probability of such propositions or truths, […]
“They have blood on their hands,” said former NYC police commissioner Bernard Kerik, of Mayor Bill de Blasio, Al Sharpton and “all those who encouraged this anti-cop, racist mentality.” He was, of course, commenting on the heinous assassinations of the two NYPD officers this weekend. “All those […]
The financial markets are on a hair trigger as to when, and how quickly, the Fed will tighten and raise interest rates. Billions of dollars will be won or lost by investors on this wager.
For the rest of us, getting it right — as did Chairman […]
Seattle’s Socialist city councilwoman, who got the minimum wage increased to $15/hr.
I left Washington state about 20 years ago for Arizona. A Washington native, I had become fed up with the left-wing politics of Seattle. A couple of years ago, I moved back to the Pacific […]
President Obama’s decision to move toward normalized relations with Cuba has caused an array of responses, most of them pretty predictable. As a conservative non-interventionist, I support Obama’s decision. I support normal relations with Cuba and have since I moved to the position of non-interventionism many years ago. Our embargo of Cuba, ostensibly to promote […]

Even before […]
