The post presidency of Obama
Obama’s post presidency (How to be a billionaire by 65) President Obama is going into his last year as POTUS and like most 55 year old men, looks forward to how best to capitalize on his life’s experience.

Being on the Right Side of Immigration does Not Make Trump a Conservative
From anywhere in the country, one could practically feel the glee that conservatives like Ann Coulter and millions of Americans felt when Donald Trump came out and said that illegal immigrants were raping and murdering citizens. It was the type of straight talk that many in the Republican party have craved after years of “tough” politicians tiptoeing around the issue.
Tweaking Capital Punishment
Recently, the state of Georgia executed Kelly Gissendaner while Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin issued a stay in the execution of Richard Glossip who lost his appeal before the Supreme Court in the 2015 term. Thus far, there have been 22 executions in the United States this year and 1,416 since the Supreme Court gave the go-ahead to resume executions in 1976 after a brief moratorium. | Read More »
Gun Education over Gun Control
In the aftermath of the horrific shooting in Oregon, the President and the press jumped into action demanding more gun control. Politicize it! More expansive background checks! Limit availability! Hold gun manufacturers accountable! Something must be done! But honestly, to address the problem of gun violence, we only need to do one thing. Encourage more Americans to protect themselves. Only about one-third of Americans own | Read More »

Hillary: “I was for the TPP before I was against it..”
You’d think she’d learn by now. A short while ago, Hillary Clinton announced her opposition to the Trans Pacific Partnership. The TPP is the crown jewel of Obama’s agenda…the same Obama who was her boss for 4 years, who rescued her by giving her State, and yes, the same TTP that she herself not to long ago hailed as the “gold standard of trade deals.” | Read More »
Is there an embarrassing skeleton in Kevin McCarthy’s closet?
A recent congressional letter has me putting two and two together. First, let me post an article excerpt from The Hill out today: Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) 89% (R-N.C.) wants to avoid the possibility of a member of the new House GOP leadership resigning from office because of a scandal. In a letter to House GOP Conference Chairwoman [mc_name name=’Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA)’ chamber=’house’ | Read More »
Reaching out to the Black Community
An article by Jason Riley got me thinking about outreach. I personally believe that conservatives have the best solutions for the nation, all of the nation, including African Americans. Thinking about how to present it, I may be wrong and this may not resonate with anyone anywhere, but if any of our candidates wants it here you go. Start– Thank you for having me here today.

2016 – An Outsider’s Handicapping – Part IV
I originally was not going to post another entry on this until right before Iowa, with a final prediction, but the past month has been so interesting that I thought I would revisit this topic. We have had two strong, conservative, former governors drop out. That was a surprise. Perry might run for the Senate, as may Walker, but I think for both their Presidential | Read More »
With Friends Like These: George Soros-Part 2
In part 1, I outlined the basic tenets of Soros and his Open Society Institute (OSI). They revolved around the denial of American exceptionalism, world governance, and wealth redistribution. Nothing so changed recent American history than the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Although the plan had been in the making for years, Soros led the call that the attacks were | Read More »
Minimum Wage Hikes Kill Businesses & Jobs
Remember earlier this year, around April/May when there seemed to be a discussion about the minimum wage on every news channel? Since that time, focuses have shifted to other important issues. But the minimum wage still remains an important issue in this country that should be discussed, along with the truth of the issue: minimum wage hikes continue to kill businesses & jobs. | Read More »
So, is it just wicked reich-wing Republicans saying that President Obama’s foreign policy shows no leadership . . .
