Defending Those Who Defend Us

    Today, a brave man was laid to rest. A police officer in one of the largest police forces in the world. And it breaks my heart to see the photos of his young son at the funeral, to witness his family, his friends and his brothers from all over the USA have to stand with honor and dignity while they are feeling torn apart inside. | Read More »

    Obama’s Media Harem and the Sore Loser

    Obama's Media Harem and the Sore Loser

    I think CBS stands for Caress Barack’s Scrotum.  Saturday’s puff piece based on the President’s Hawaii vacation pool report asks the question “why Obama loves golf, basketball and all things athletic” without actually answering it.  In fact, Obama’s love of “things athletic” would make him a glutton for punishment, because he’s not very good at any of those things. It’s a fairly typical Hawaiian presidential | Read More »

    It’s Time to Demilitarize the Police

    It's Time to Demilitarize the Police

    Habersham County, Georgia is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, just south of stunning Tallulah Gorge.  The biggest city in the county is Cornelia, with 4,160 residents.  The entire population of Habersham County would fill slightly more than half the seats in the Georgia Dome. Yet Habersham County Sheriff’s Department has a SWAT team, complete with flash-bang grenades, one of which exploded in | Read More »

    Thanks Sammie, and you can keep the shirt.

    Although he announced his plans earlier this month, we were hoping against HOPE that he would change his mind. So it is with a heavy heart that I must report that the rumors are true – we are losing chef Sammie Kass; he’s moving to New York. To be with his new wife, Ms.NBC news hostess, Alex Wagner. She’s a former political activist and music-magazine | Read More »

    Top Liberal Jerks of 2014- Part 6

    We are now up to the top 10.  And coming in at #10 is a “journalist” I used to somewhat respect.  His articles and editorials for the Washington Post used to be well-reasoned and punctuated with facts.  However, apparently the liberal intelligentsia- an oxymoron by any other name- must have gotten to him.  I am talking about Eugene Robinson.  Perhaps it was his calm demeanor | Read More »

    Greetings On Boxing Day; And the First Day of Kwanzaa

    Greetings On Boxing Day; And the First Day of Kwanzaa

    So; another Christmas goes in the record book. That means today is Boxing Day – the day originally designated to give your servants a small token of your appreciation. Now days it’s just another excuse to go shopping to pick up stuff on sale that you don’t need, don’t really want and will eventually end up in the Goodwill or Salvation Army box. So shop | Read More »

    The Sexual Revolution, Feminism and The Rape Culture

    Four stories over the last couple of months have brought to light the glaring inconsistencies in the liberal mindset when it comes to sex. Bill Cosby was once an example of an educated entertainer whose message was one of personal responsibility and racial liberation within the backdrop of the American Dream. Now he is a punchline to jokes that aren’t as funny as his stand-up | Read More »

    Stupid Police?

    One of Obama’s first forays onto a certain path that I can remember happened some years ago. Remember Cambridge? The time he (the President of the United States mind you) injected himself into a minor local police issue by taking his friend’s side over a duly sworn officer of the law before he (the President of the United States) even had the facts of the | Read More »

    Taking the “measure” of Obama: 208, 24, 20

    As we near the end of Obama’s 6th year in office, we can take the measure of the man by looking at three numbers. Though they are in fact disparate, when viewed in context, they provide a true insight into his soul, or rather, a lack of: 208: The number of times Obama has played golf. Does he get a mulligan for the times his game | Read More »

    Rush Limbaugh TRIGGER WARNING

    Rush Limbaugh TRIGGER WARNING

    It’s amazing what the Left and their media bootlickers latch onto.  On December 23, Rush Limbaugh commented about a few lighthearted stories, you know, the kind of stuff a radio host talks about just before Christmas.  One of those stories involved a Sony email about casting a new James Bond. RUSH: Back to the lighthearted Stack.  One of the e-mails that leaked in the hack | Read More »

    Top Liberal Jerks of 2014- Part 5

    There is good news, bad news and good news regarding #12 on the countdown- a repeater from last year.  Of course, I am referring to the ever popular Ed Schultz.  The good news is that his head has not spontaneously burst into flames from one of his patented on-air rants.  The bad news is that he is still on the air.  The good news is | Read More »

    Gamergate: What it is and Why You Should Care

    Everyone has seen a reference to Gamergate by now. And if you’re like most adults, you’ve clicked past it. Maybe you googled the term out of sheer curiosity, but really, who cares about a controversy surrounding video games? What are we, 12? What lot of folks don’t understand about Gamergate is that it’s an amazing microcosm of what’s occurring in modern American society as a | Read More »

    De Blasio is no Martin Luther King and New York City ain’t Selma

    And yet, in a 70% White nation, that elected a Black president with more White votes than Gore or Clinton received, and a city where the police department is so disproportionately non-White that a prima facie case for reverse discrimination could be made, The (liberal Democrat) Mob is out in force in a city and state controlled wholesale by liberal Democrats. Why? Because of a | Read More »

    Jeb Bush Continues Preparations for 2016 Presidential Run

    There has been a lot of talk about a Jeb Bush 2016 presidential run. And, it seems, that Jeb is preparing to make that run a reality. Bush seems to be distancing himself from the companies which he sits as a board member. Newsmax is reporting that he will step down from Tenet Healthcare Corp. effective Dec. 31. Also, that he has taken a leave from his directorship | Read More »

    Jeb Bush: First From the Gate

    With his December 16, Facebook announcement that he will “actively explore the possibility of running for president of the United States” and establish a Leadership PAC to allow supporters to make financial contributions, Jeb Bush has brought a high degree of urgency to contenders for the Establishment Wing of the Republican Party. The conservatives and populists will have time to sort their candidates, but the race for donors and | Read More »

    Heav’nly hosts sing Alleluia; Christ the Savior is born.

    Heav'nly hosts sing Alleluia; Christ the Savior is born.

    And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed…until such time as an angel appeared to  the false king named Barack and said unto him: “That’s right Barack…you didn’t build that yourself; somebody else made that happen.” Behold his glory: And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, | Read More »

    Luke 2:14

    In the past week, Islamic terrorists were responsible for the following acts in the name of Allah.  It gives new meaning to this season of peace and good will. December 18th- Boko Harem, an Islamic jihad group in Nigeria, kills at least 35 people and kidnaps another 185; December 20th- ISIL releases a video showing a hand being amputated on an accused thief; December 20th- | Read More »

    Pastor Invokes Independence Day To Undermine Human Liberty

    An Independence Day sermon posted at SermonAudio.com is titled “We Have No Rights”. The pastor hypothesizes this is because Christ is our master. The presupposition is correct but the conclusion the pastor deduces from that principle is at best only partially correct if at all. It must be point out that, because Christ is our master, no man or government can ever be in the | Read More »

    Marching Forward into the Past: the Reanimation of Bull Connor

    I had a pretty good idea where we were headed, even before Obama chose “Forward” as his reelection campaign slogan. To Communists, that word has a very specific meaning. Glenn Beck does an exhaustive history of its use in posters of Stalin, Lenin and Mao here. (MSNBC, employer of White House racial advisor Al Sharpton, uses the slogan “Lean Forward” and has an online show, “Code | Read More »

    Democrats Bustos, Duckworth, And Foster Mulling 2016 Challenge To Sen. Kirk

    2014 isn’t even over with, let alone the candidates who won in November having been sworn into office, and already things are starting to take shape for the 2016 election cycle. Roll Call is reporting that Illinois Democrat Representatives , , and Tammy Duckworth are all mulling over the possibility of challenging Republican .   Foster was defeated in the 2010 Tea Party wave only | Read More »

    Democrats Should Drink From the Right Bottle

    In the newly released film “Antarctica,” the narrator talks about the similarity, in size and shape, between the standard-issue antarctic water bottle, for personal consumption, and the standard-issue bottle for human waste — and the importance of not confusing the two. The lesson is the same for politics: Those who traffic in both wisdom and waste need to be able, in their own minds at | Read More »

    Top Liberal Spews of 2014- Part 4

    An election year tends to bring out the Lefty loons and this year did not disappoint.  Of course, there are always the behind-the-scenes actors like those dreaded, evil Koch brothers (who employ over 75,000 Americans) and #14 on this list- Tom Steyer (who employs zero Americans).  This self-made billionaire donated $74 million to NextGen- a PAC dedicated to Democratic candidates who would address climate change. | Read More »

    The Watercooler ~ Unto Us a Child Is Born

    Thank God we live in America. Though she is currently bruised and battered and struggling to recover her true identity, along comes the celebration of celebrations to remind us of things that truly matter — in this world and in this life. No leftist ideology or hatred spewed from the mouths of the ignorant and the arrogant can extinguish the Light of Christ, nor prevent | Read More »

    Linus Had It Right.

    This is what Christmas is all about. It’s easy to forget, amid all the shopping, and the cooking, and yes, even the lame duck politics, but Christmas should always be about Christ. We give gifts, but we should always remember the greatest gift ever given: God’s own Son, who willingly came to earth to die on a cross to reconcile us to the Father. Could | Read More »

    Four little words of advice for Michael Grimm: Charlie Rangel and Alcee Hastings

    New York GOP Congressman Michael Grimm  yesterday pleaded guilty to one count of felony tax evasion. It is inevitable that he will soon resign from the House. Speaker Boehner has wisely to date refrained from any public comment; allowing Grimm time over the holidays to contemplate his fall from grace and hopefully come to the correct decision as to his future. Let’s be clear here. | Read More »

    Why God Used Angels To Announce Christmas

    Erick wrote a post yesterday titled “To Understand the Beginning of the End, You Must Understand the End of the Beginning” which beautifully described God’s covenants with Abraham, Moses and Israel, and the connection to Christmas. I posted a comment posing the question “Did you ever wonder why God used angels to speak to Mary and Zechariah and Joseph?” with a possible answer. This post is the expanded version of that answer with lots of Scripture to back it up and an interesting twist at the end.

    The Police are Mean

    We’ve all been pulled over by a cop. Most law abiding citizens only deal with police officers a handful of times in their lives, but at some point – it happens. I’ve been fortunate enough to have only been pulled over twice; for speeding and for sporting expired registration tags. In neither instance was I harassed, beaten or killed. So where do I get off | Read More »

    Clinton/Warren 2016 Should Republicans Laugh, Fear, or Dismiss?

    Clinton/Warren 2016  Should Republicans Laugh, Fear, or Dismiss?

    Re-posted from National Review Would a Democratic presidential ticket of former secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Democratic Massachusetts be doomed to defeat or cruise to an easy victory on November 8, 2016? From a Republican perspective would this Clinton/Warren “all chick tick” elicit howls of laughter or utter fear? Here is why from a Democrat point of view a Clinton/Warren ticket might make good | Read More »

    NEW YORK POLICE REAL VICTIMS

          When public officials ignore or condone street mobs calling for “Dead Cops” they are compliant in any subsequent consequences. No one should underestimate the influence of months of demonstrations and rallies led by professional agitators like Al Sharpton. They stoked the fires of police hatred by incorporating false charges of racism. Eventually, that anti-police rhetoric resulted in death by assassination for officers | Read More »

    Top Liberal Spews on 2014- Part 3

     Its fitting that these next two appear near one another in the countdown since they share a lot in common.  Both are race baiters extraordinaire and both see a racial bogeyman behind everything.  So coming in at #16 is outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder.  He comes in lower in the countdown only because he is resigning and will be less high-profile now although one can | Read More »

    It Doesn’t Matter When Jesus Was Born

    It Doesn't Matter When Jesus Was Born

    This week, Christians will celebrate the birth of Christ. We will gather with loved ones to worship, sing, eat too much, and reflect on what His birth has given us. And then, the one know-it-all on Twitter, in your family, or wherever else he lurks, will tell you in his most self-satisfied tone, that Jesus wasn’t even born in December. That, using Biblical clues, it | Read More »

    IRS Lois Lerner & North Lorea: Icky and Hacky

    Greetings from the formerly sunny island of Oahu! I haven’t needed my uva and uvb lenses much so far this year, as the little black cloud seems to be following us; the rain I mean. And now I hear that Congress is releasing a report today that reveals our ex-IRS top official Lois Lerner specifically targeted tea party groups and misled the public about its | Read More »

    Is This the Post Post-Racial Presidency?

    Racial strife has been in the news for months. It has lasted while the Russian invasion of Ukraine, an Ebola scare, ISIS-ISIL-DASH, kidnappings, beheadings, prisoner releases, and an historic mid-term election have either come and gone or have been reported and pushed aside. But it wasn’t supposed to be that way. Racial tensions were supposed to be a thing of the past by this time. | Read More »

    The U.S. Has a Drone Problem

    The U.S. Has a Drone Problem

    Nowhere is the tension between technology and safety evident than the “drone wars”, pitting the FAA against Hollywood.  So far, Hollywood is winning.  Last September, the FAA granted permits to several production companies to operate commercial drones. The drones must weigh no more than 55 lbs, fly no faster than 58 mph, and no higher than 400 feet above the ground (AGL).  FAA rules for | Read More »

    Coming in at #18 is a person very few people have probably heard of- Esquire political blogger and ESPN sports analyst Charles Pierce.  There lies the problem in a nutshell- a sports writer doing political commentary.  Its just as silly as a community organizer becoming the President.  Charles Pierce zoomed into 18th place since he came out in defense of his “friend,” Jonathan Gruber.  In | Read More »

    Mock We Much

    Mock We Much

    The National Review thinks kids today are softer than cotton candy. They drew this conclusion based on the students’ and their institutions of higher learning reactions to the double non-indictment of two grand juries hundreds, if not thousands, of miles away from their campuses. Requiring everything from grief therapists (University of California) to delayed final exams (Harvard, Occidental, Columbia), the kids just can’t seem to | Read More »

    Christmas As An Atheist Holiday

    I’d like to thank the atheists for making my point: when we tell our kids that Santa is real, and that he exemplifies the spirit of Christmas, we are practicing atheism. Practical atheism. We are taking a day dedicated to celebrating a uniquely Christian event and making it a fairy tale.

    Law Enforcement Contempt, I’ve Had Enough

    As I have written before, I have been a police officer for 28 years. The men and women with whom I have served are some of the most honorable, dependable people that you could possibly meet. They are compassionate. They are dedicated. They are patriotic. They are hardworking. And they truly wish to make a positive difference in the communities they serve. The vast majority | Read More »

    The Content of Our Character

    On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and captured the heart of a nation with a single phrase: “I have a dream.” Dr. King’s decision that day to set aside his written speech and speak these visionary words ultimately placed him in the same oratory company as Presidents Lincoln and Jefferson. While most people remember and | Read More »

    Congress: The Return of “Regular Order”

    There is good reason to believe that the coming Republican Congress will be able to demonstrate that the GOP knows how to govern effectively and can be trusted with the presidency in 2016. In fact, this may be easier than it looks. Without knowing or caring how the plumbing really works, the public has given Congress an approval rating of 10 to 15% in recent | Read More »

    One Weird Trick From Dr. Claus To Make Your Life Perfect this Christmas

    In our golden age of charlatans, shills, and hucksters… Oh look! Weasels! …why is this even news? “Half of Dr. Oz’s medical advice is baseless or wrong.” I mean, he calls himself Dr. Oz for crying out loud. I know: he’s a heart surgeon, with degrees from TWO Ivy League schools, ipso fatso, he must be smart. He was discovered by Oprah, thus given a | Read More »

    Obama, executive orders….excuse me…”unsigned” memoranda, and razor blades

    Those of us of a certain age recall that once upon a time shaving was almost always accomplished with a Gillette safety razor, using double edged blades.

    This is why I might have a problem voting for Rand Paul

    Before I explain the title of this entry, first let me clarify a few things.  On policy, I agree with Rand Paul on 99% of the issues. In fact, I think I agree with him on policy more than any other candidate, with his stance on Cuba being an exception.  So this isn’t about policy.  This is about what it takes to be president and | Read More »

    Demographic Fallacies

    The New York Times had an article entitled “The Growing Blue-State Diaspora.”  In that article, the authors make a claim that as blue state residents move to traditionally red or swing states, they are changing the political ideological tendencies of their new home states.  It is not until almost the end of the article that the authors acknowledge that just because the person comes from | Read More »
