Our President is Delusional
Today the President of the United States officially moved into delusional territory. From Fox News: President Barack Obama on Friday compared tensions between the U.S. and Israel over the Iranian nuclear deal to a family feud and said he expects improvements in ties between the longtime allies to come quickly after the accord is implemented. “Like all families, sometimes there are going to be disagreements,” | Read More »
We Need a New Republican Party
The GOP today finds itself in a debate over what kind of party it is, and what kind of party it wants to become. We know today that the principles and values that lie at the heart of conservatism are shared by the majority. Despite what some in the press may say, we who are proud to call ourselves “conservative” are not a minority of a minority | Read More »
Big Brother HUD Decides Your Property Value and Your Neighbors
There was a time in recent American history when local governments didn’t depend on grants from federal agencies for zoning and permitting decisions. Sadly, those days appear to be over. If your city or county accepts money from the federal government via Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership Program, it may be time to stop. Both programs now | Read More »
Why does Planned Parenthood want to hear David Daleiden pee?
Planned Parenthood is reeling from undercover videos in which its own senior level leadership is caught negotiating for the highest price for baby body parts and describing the ways they can illegally alter the abortion procedure to “crush” the parts of the baby they don’t need and keep the valuable organs for its buyers. Thus, the nation’s largest abortion business did the only thing it | Read More »
MERCENARIES vs. MISSIONARIES
The entire political world was made aware a few weeks ago of Rick Perry’s money woes. The news leaked that most staffers had their pay frozen, so Perry could continue basic necessities of infrastructure and travel. Campaign manager, Jeff Miller expressed gratitude for their service and his desire for them to stay, but assured them no hard feelings if they chose another endeavor. All but | Read More »
North Korea Emails Suggest Clinton Foundation Collusion at State
Just when I thought there might be a bottom to the moral abyss undergirding Bill and Hillary Clinton’s bridge to perfidy, I am once again proven wrong. There’s nowhere Bill wouldn’t go, nobody to whom he wouldn’t sell his soul for a selfie in return for a payday, during Hillary’s kleptocracy at the State Department. Even, apparently, North Korea. Courtesy of a public records request | Read More »
Joe Biden IS running for President….(but just not right at this moment)
I’ve long believed ( and indeed have written here six months ago) that Liz Warren was running the perfect stealth campaign for president. Despite the hopes of her many supporters that she enter the race, it made no sense for her to do so. Why expose yourself early on to the all-out Clinton attack apparatus, and likely split the party in the process. Instead, far better | Read More »
The Champion Behind Texas Fetal Pain
“In June of 2013, I stood on the floor of Texas State Senate with four of my Republican colleagues from the Texas House of Representatives, watching in agony the closing moments of Wendy Davis’ marathon filibuster against House Bill 5. This historic bill called abortion clinics to uphold the same standard of care for their patients as any other surgeon in the State of Texas. | Read More »
Our Immigration System Is Not Broken
Why is it that when African Americans whose families have been in this country for hundreds of years commit crimes they go to jail and when illegal immigrants commit crimes they get released? In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide target illegal aliens, as do approximately two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants. More than 60 percent of the Hispanic gangs in Southern | Read More »
The Battle for the Senate- 2016: August Happenings in Review
Having made it through the dog days of August and as the kids head back to school, a summary of US Senate 2016 happenings: ARKANSAS: In the “Really? Why?” Department, Democratic US Attorney Conner Eldridge is said to be considering a run against Boozman. Not only is Arkansas now a reliably red state, Boozman really has not done anything to upset anyone. It is hard | Read More »
Trump has supported nearly all of Obama’s economic policy agenda
In July, Donald Trump made a statement about the 2008 financial crisis that left many conservatives perplexed: “I identify with some things as a Democrat…I was never a Bush fan. [When] the economy crashed so horribly under George Bush, because of mistakes they made having to do with banking and lots of other things, I don’t think the Democrats would have done that.” Now to | Read More »
President Biden Would Be Obama’s “Medvedev”
President Obama has seized upon Hillary’s email-powered fall with a sudden push and near-endorsement for the Vice President to enter the race for President. There’s a lot more to this, and Monica Crowley has done important reporting on how Hillary might have been set up from the beginning for an email-scandal campaign fall. Certainly, the investigation of Hillary’s emails would never have happened without the President’s approval. This | Read More »
Update to Trump/Cruz.. Joint appearance now planned to protest Iran Deal
Updates to my previous diary (See below): Trump and Cruz are planning to make a joint appearance to protest the Iran Deal. http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2015/08/27/ted-cruz-and-donald-trump-planning-a-joint-appearance-to-protest-the-iran-deal/ Trump, whatever you think about him, you have to give it to him that he is really good at making big deals.

Why Young People Fall Into The Bernie Sander’s Trap
During election cycles, the youth of our nation are constantly bombarded with pleas from the political left and right to make a decision as to who they will support. For me, the pressure has been mounting ever since I came out in support of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 53% in 2007. Friends of mine seem to have hopped on one of two | Read More »
Ann Coulter has completely lost her mind….and apparently so have a lot of conservatives.
The other day in Iowa, Ann Coulter was the opening act for the latest performance of the Trump three-ring circus. Possibly it was induced by the sheer elation of Trump’s plugging her new book, with the expectation that if she continues to be a camp-follower at future events, people will be bringing copies of her book up for her to autograph. I used to be | Read More »
On Rick Perry, the Consultant Class, the Press Corps and Getting To The Big Boy Debates
Given my freely shared, admittedly unsympathetic, opinion of Rick Perry’s 2012 outing, RedState veterans may be surprised to find that he is still my first choice for the 2016 nomination. Actually, he was my preferred choice – far ahead of Mitt Romney, who was my second choice – for 2012; I was one of thousands punching the air in joy when he announced in August | Read More »
A Principled Argument Dooms Chaffetz’s Internet Gaming Ban Legislation
Utah is one of two states in America that have no legalized form of gambling — and they want to keep it that way. When Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) 80% (R-Utah) introduced legislation on behalf of Las Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson to outlaw the ability of states to legalize Internet gambling, he cited Utah’s opposition to gaming as one of his | Read More »
McConnell and Boehner plan preemptive surrender to baby killers
The atrocities taking place under the roof of Planned Parenthood are nothing short of a full-blown holocaust on the unborn. Over the past few weeks, we have learned that not only are the body parts of aborted babies being harvested for profit—I thought it was just tissue—but in many cases aborted babies are born and kept alive in order to get the freshest product | Read More »
Russia is a World Cancer.
I am Alexandr Gavriluk, Ukrainian citizen and I want to speak with you about Russia. You may know about current war between Ukraine and Russia. Yes, we all Ukrainians are extremely thankful for your support for our economic and army and know that without your support we would be Russian slaves at this time.

It’s More Than Just ‘Evil’, There’s A Malevolence At Work
“I was influenced by Seung–Hui Cho. That’s my boy right there. He got NEARLY double the amount that Eric Harris and Dylann Klebold got…just sayin.'” Bryce Williams, a.k.a. Vester Lee Flanagan—yes he was a troubled man; yes he blamed everyone who reacted negatively to him in the smallest way for propelling him into murder; yes he was a black, gay man who murdered two white, | Read More »
GOP Presidential Betting Odds: Has the Debate Changed the Equation?
I have been tracking the Vegas and British odds on the GOP nomination race since March and I updated them in June. Without getting into the methodology, in the interest of consistency, I use the same three sources (the British odds are a composite of three outlets). Since there are 16 candidates (I excluded Gilmore), they are divided into four tiers of 4 candidates each | Read More »
Killed in Airstrike: Top ISIS Hacker On Pentagon Hit List Who Threatened Attacks on US Military
Twenty-one year old Junaid Hussain, the notorious ISIS hacker from Birmingham, UK who masterminded the terrorist group’s online war, was killed in a US drone strike earlier this week.

Quit Publicizing The #WDBJ Killers Snuff Video
On Wednesday morning Vester Lee Flanagan, who went by Bryce Williams, walked up on Roanoke, Virginia TV station WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and her cameraman Adam Ward as they were doing a live interview with a woman from the local chamber of commerce and shot them in cold blood killing Parker and Ward and wounding the other woman. Flanagan was a former reporter with the station. By | Read More »
Democrats Call on Obama to Bring in Muslim Refugees—But not Christians
By Bob Bennett What is the allure of Islamic immigration to Democrats? First, we have to realize what the Democratic Party is not, and what it actually is. There’s a eureka moment in this realization, because one of the universe’s most profound mysteries is: Why would an entity that depends upon the public’s goodwill consistently take positions that drive average Americans into paroxysms of spitting-up, | Read More »
Abortion And Fossil Fuels…Are They Joined At The Hip?
Conservatives and liberal/progressives find themselves in a queer kind of symmetrical stalemate on two key gargantuan public policy issues. I refer to anthropogenic climate change/fossil fuels on one hand, and on the other hand, abortion. These two key issues offset each other as far as being wins or losses for both sides. On climate change conservatives have the edge by virtue of the fact that | Read More »
Friends, we need to talk. If you’re like most Americans, you’ve been following the tragic story coming out of Virginia this morning. I’m absolutely heartbroken. To think of the family members and friends who literally watched their loved ones gunned down on live TV is almost more than I can bear. But why are we grieving over these young lives that were tragically cut short? | Read More »

Votivation – The New Walking Around Money
Seton Motley beat me to the punch, but I want to expand on his excellent post. There is a 24×7 war in full force and effect over the hearts and minds of voters. Sites like this one and the Huffington Post are mostly geared toward like-minded people. What Robert Epstein has studied, and we should pay attention to, is the political playbook geared toward the | Read More »

Two brothers were arrested in South Boston last week after allegedly beating a homeless Hispanic man. Because, Trump. Scott and Steve Leader face multiple charges over the incident which , according to one of the brothers, was done because “Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported.” Understand, the Leader brothers were well known among law enforcement prior to this latest matter.

Ted Cruz on Birthright Citizenship
I believe Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% to be the most Reaganesque candidate. By that I mean the most articulate on conservative principles, and the one most likely to rebuild the Reagan voting coalition that won two landslide presidential victories. But his position on birthright citizenship and the 14th Amendment is troubling. Briefly the 14th Amendment was ratified to ensure newly freed | Read More »
Trump will NOT apologize for retweeting ‘Megyn Kelly is a bimbo.’ – “Look, I know bimbos when I see one. I married three of them”
The war between Trump and FOX took an oddly different and dark turn the other day. Displaying a near-childlike inability to “let sleeping dogs lie,” Trump welcomed back Megyn Kelly from vacation with a series of Tweets deriding her top-rated show. Trump poured fuel on the fire by retweeting a supporter’s post that said of Kelly, “The bimbo is back.” Until this latest exchange, it | Read More »
Dreadful Noise and Loathsome Silence
“And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people maybe more. People talking without speaking, People hearing without listening, People writing songs that voices never share And no one dare Disturb the sound of silence.” Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, of the eponymous folk music group, released “The Sound of Silence” in October 1964—the blessed year and month of my own birth—as part of | Read More »
With Friends Like These- Harold Ickes- Part 2
In the previous entry, I showed how Harold Ickes wormed his way into the Clinton inner circle and became a key operative in the White House and the 1996 reelection effort. During that time, he gravitated towards Hillary and became a close friend. His association with unions infiltrated with organized crime were essentially covered up by the Clinton White House in the case of the | Read More »

Is the Mainstream Media (and Fox News) in the tank for Trump?
If you watched Fox News or Fox Business Channel anytime between 5 and 6 pm CT tonight (8/25), a familiar face appeared live: Donald Trump holding a campaign rally in Dubuque, IA. If it seems the Trump campaign gets more extensive coverage than any other GOP campaign, there is data to substantiate this. The Media Research Center confirmed that from Aug 7-20, nightly newscasts of | Read More »
China is Not a Free Market
China has constructed an apparent free market which has attracted investors from around the world. The Shanghai skyline is a brilliant testament to the opportunities available in China, however its glare can obscure the risks of investing in a Communist-ruled regime. The stock markets Beijing allowed to be built may work when everything is perfect, but once problems develop, they turn out to be merely alluring and carefully-painted images | Read More »

In Defense of Birthright Citizenship
Donald Trump brought it up, but it is hardly a new contentious topic with immigration reform- birthright citizenship. For those who argue against it, much of the argument is rooted in ignorance of the history and a tendency to see things in terms of black and whites. Such is not the case. For the first 100 years of this country’s Constitutional existence, there was no | Read More »
In 2012 I voted for Gary Johnson, Looking back at the whole thing I really regret it. My father told me I was throwing my vote away, that I was supporting a radical change in America on the notion of principle. I voted on my ideals and principles rather than pragmatism. Gary Johnson barely recovered 1% of the total vote, and at | Read More »
The Donald’s Hidden Tattoos…What Does It Mean?
Sorry to bait you in this way but Donald Trump can’t possibly have any tattoos, and in a moment you’ll see why. This post is an explanation of this crazy two- decades old cultural phenomenon of skyrocketing tattoo use in America and you have to understand the hidden emotional drivers behind it. First, think back to a saner time in America, pre-1960s say, when the | Read More »
Trump’s Border Ruffians and Twain’s War Prayer
Mark Twain wrote with enormous sentiment about a great patriotic movement, as “a fluttering wilderness of flags flashed in the sun.” Thus is the receiving line of the disaffected for Donald Trump, of whom legend and song shall be duly recorded in history. Leading in the polls, standing tall above all the other GOP candidates, indeed above Her Majesty Hillary Clinton, whose shine has turned to | Read More »
Register that Lawn Mower
The Environmental Policy Alliance has released a new ad detailing the absurdity of new Environmental Protection Agency rules that will outlaw everyday activities like cutting your grass. It is worth your time. Under communist-rule in Romania, citizens were expected to register their typewriters to ensure anyone writing material against the state could be tracked. It appears that we are heading down a similar track but | Read More »
Top 10 Most Unfortunate Named Candidates

The Real Economic Crisis Is Our Culture
(Photo: Joe Raedle, Getty Images) The real challenge of economic growth is not changes to taxes or regulation, as important as those policies are. It is not innovation and education, even though both are necessary and important. The economic problems will not be resolved through legal or government reforms, although without those reforms the prospect of economic growth is slim. At the root, our economic | Read More »
Washington Post op-ed: Black votes should count more than whites’
The idea of reparations for the descendants of slaves has been a topic of discussion in the far-left wing of the Democrat party for years, and there have even been rumblings that Obama might push for such an idea in 2016 before he leaves office. While the likelihood of reparations becoming reality is debatable, there remains no lack of ideas for ways to make America | Read More »
Dear Donald: Stop for now attacking the other candidates, and focus on the REAL enemies, Boehner and McConnell
Donald Trump has a unique opportunity in the next 5 weeks to further shake up the GOP race, and to increase his support among the GOP base. Trump’s been busy attacking everyone and anything. That’s politics. As one wag put it over 100 years ago, “politics ain’t beanbag.” And his attacks are having some success. After first vowing to ignore “Mr. Trump,” Jeb Bush has | Read More »
What’s Behind the Continual Appeal of Ben Carson?
To many on the Left, Ben Carson remains an enigma. Most of the attention on the “outsider” candidates focuses on two other people for different reasons. With Donald Trump, it is his personality and ego and over-the-top statements. Almost self-describing himself as the anti-PC candidate, his rhetoric could be rude and his tone nasty. That appeals to some people who dress it up as, “He | Read More »
Marita Noon: Oil’s down, gasoline isn’t. What’s up?
This year, several unexpected maintenance issues happened in the spring. Other refineries worked overtime to make up the shortage. That, plus low crude prices, means that many refiners didn’t shutdown for the usual spring turnaround. Fuel News notes, potential profit encouraged refiners to “get while the getting’s good.”

The Republican Party Needs To Change
“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” Never did Thomas Jefferson realize that his remark to John Adams would carry so much significance today; applying to a broken political system with ever-increasing polarization and gridlock.
