The EPA Assaults the Private Sector – and the Environment

    There are few things more dangerous to private enterprise than government bureaucrats with time on their hands. And since most bureaucrats have no legitimate reason for being – they have lots and lots of time on their hands. In 2009, the federal government had at least 2,748,978 employees – and 97.6% of civilian federal employees were in the executive branch (and do you think that | Read More »

    The Invisible National Security Question

    Incoming Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford told lawmakers that Russia is the greatest threat to US national security and its behavior is “nothing short of alarming.” And that’s coming from someone who’s dealing with ISIL, Iran and al Qaeda on a daily basis. While the threat of nuclear action from Russia is well known in Europe, in America this is | Read More »

    My bike

    A bicycle messenger is peddling fast in the bike lane, Carbon Wheels trying to get to his destination. He’s observing all traffic laws, wearing a helmet, and maintaining situational awareness to avoid being struck. He’s also going very quickly, trying to make his route before he has to return to the office. As he approaches the intersection, he checks the turn lane for cars, and | Read More »

    EXCLUSIVE: The Hillary Diaries- August Edition

    In the continuing tradition of transparency and openness that characterizes the Clinton campaign, I bring you another edition of the private diarrhea diary of Hillary Clinton: 8/1- Dear diary:  Released tax returns and medical records today.  I challenge Bernie to do the same and explain why he drools when he talks.  And that frog in his throat…is that annoying or what?  And what’s all this I hear | Read More »

    The outline of Hillary’s email defense takes shape: “I was too stupid to be Secretary of State”

    With the latest release of some 6000+ additional emails, and the disclosure that some 150 of them have now been redacted because they contained “classified” information, Hillary now appears to be be in serious trouble and facing legal jeopardy. The constant drip, drip, drip of news about the emails is sending her poll numbers somewhere below the political equivalent of the Mendoza line, and revelations | Read More »

    Larry Sabato: Donald Trump is “The Un-Nominatable Frontrunner.”

    If you’re becoming nauseous or you’re staying up late worrying about the inevitability of a Donald Trump nomination, you can start to rest easy.  On the other hand, if you’re giddy and elated over the possibility of Donald Trump becoming the GOP nominee, you may want to temper your enthusiasm. Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball analysis from August 13th sheds some light and some reality on | Read More »

    Can Anyone Stop the Momentum of Trump-motion and Bern-Motion in Their Tracks?

    I am not a witch Trumpette. I am a political junkie and enjoy sharing my observations with fellow full-time followers and expect disagreements amongst the dedicated. That being said, let the cow flinging begin because I’m nearly certain that Trump will be the Republican nominee. Why? Because it’s hard to stop a fast-moving train that’s gone off the rails of political correctness like we’ve never seen before in | Read More »

    The GOP would rather be “dying” than have an Outsider candidate win and hold them accountable

    The problem I see with the entire “GOP is dying” statement is that it is not exactly accurate.  As Erik said “The Republican Party is dying because the GOP in DC has gone corporate and K Street”. But, as Michael Needam CEO of Heritage Action for Ameriaca put it on Fox News Sunday yesterday “One of the greatest myths is that Washington  D.C. is broken; | Read More »

    How Americans really feel about stronger gun laws.

    Last week, our country bore witness to the brutal killing of two reporters broadcasting on live television. As expected, liberal media went insane with the Washington Post’s Mark Berman deciding to enlighten us all with his heavily tilted piece, “How Americans actually feel about gun laws”. Naturally, Berman concluded with the usual array of “common sense” policies proposed by the left.   But how does | Read More »

    Governor Rick Perry - A Man after Gods own heart

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry tells prayer rally: ‘Our heart breaks for America’ Switching channels in the Oklahoma territory is a common practice for anyone who travels the road from I44 to I40 , The first time I ever heard mention of Governor Rick Perry was from a Radio Station commercial that stated the Governor of Texas was invited to speak at a large 20 thousand | Read More »

    Adios America, Europe in Transition & An Enlightened Single Issue Voter

    I’ve just returned from two weeks in Europe with our time split between France and Germany. My sleep patterns being off a bit I occupied myself for a few nights reading Ann Coulter’s Adios America. Great book! I highly recommend picking up a copy. In it she talks about the disaster unfettered immigration from the third world has been for the United States. Essentially Teddy | Read More »

    Trump’s Record-Breaking New Poll Results & What It May Mean For The GOP Nomination

    Not surprisingly, presidential candidate Donald Trump leads the Republican 2016 field in the new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics of Iowa voters. But, here’s where it gets interesting, as Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza illustrates: “The real story is contained deeper in the poll. In May, when the Register last polled, 27 percent of likely Iowa GOP caucus-goers viewed Trump favorably while 63 percent regarded him unfavorably. | Read More »

    Myra Adams: How Trump’s Anchor Baby Talk Could Anchor Democrats to the White House

    One of my all-time favorite quotes is, “You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts,” The quote is attributed to the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and usually applicable to any heated political discussion. Another popular alternative to Moynihan’s quote is, “Facts are inconvenient.” Attention Trump supporters: Here are some extremely inconvenient facts concerning the Republican Party’s chances of | Read More »

    Assault by Government: Draining the Capital Pool

    David Lee Roth – the original lead singer of mega-rock group Van Halen – gave us an excellent assessment of the value of coin: “Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you a yacht big enough to pull up right alongside it.” What this amusingly quantifies is that money is a vital component of any and everything we do. Certainly for how we | Read More »

    2016 Gubernatorial Races: August Happenings in Review

    INDIANA: In 2008, Democrat Jim Schellinger unsuccessfully sought the nod to run for Governor.  Some expected him to enter the race in 2016.  However, Mike Pence recently appointed him to the Indiana Economic Development Corporation which all but takes him out of the gubernatorial picture.  Keep your enemies close, or just bad politics?  Wouldn’t a crowded Democratic primary favor Pence?  Meanwhile, as soon as she | Read More »

    Negation with Hitler in 1938 was the same as negotiation with Putin.

    All suggestions with aggressor lead to much more cruel war as it could be if the suggestion wasn’t. This situation occurred in 1938 Munich Agreement, when United Kingdom and France had decided to pacify aggressor Nazi Germany. As a result of this suggestion France was occupied in 1940 and UK only by the God favor could win in this war. USA didn’t almost had any | Read More »

    O’Brother Where Art Thou

    Throughout the little time that we spend on this place called earth, we are for the most part, faced with tough decisions and we meet people that become surrogate family members even though there is no DNA genetic link. Such is true for those who have served in the military where life and death decisions are made regularly and there is an inexplicable bond established | Read More »

    Society’s Difficulties Cause By Sin

    Many people, including most politicians believe that the only way to prevent murder and other serious crimes is for the government to: Enact more laws that will restrict or ban the possession of firearms. Spending more money for programs that will change people’s behavior. Prohibiting known criminal and mentally disturbed individuals from possessing fire arms. Since humans have been on earth, they have been killing | Read More »

    Why Trump has done so well in the polls- My thoughts

    I think I figured out what the root driving force is behind Trump’s voters and his popularity. I think it’s a combination of the following 4 things: 1)He’s brought excitement back to politics and made it entertaining. Before now it was boring, and we’ve been getting the same results or no results for so long that people have tuned out. Some people have wanted to | Read More »

    Why I now question the wisdom of a Trump vote. And why Carly Fiorina is looking better and better.

    WHAT’S TO LIKE ABOUT DONALD TRUMP? I like the fact that Donald Trump is saying all the right things about issues important to all Americans – albeit in fuzzy terms — but that’s okay, for now. I believe him when he says he will make America’s military the strongest in the world again. I believe him when he says he will build a fence to | Read More »

    Carly Fiorina Plays the Victim Card

    “Forget that I’m a woman,” Carly Fiorina told reporters in Iowa this week. “I’m used to being held to a higher standard.” This was a not so subtle way of reminding everyone that she is the only woman in the 17 candidate Republican field, and not at all in keeping with the way she has previously conducted her campaign. Fiorina is upset that she will | Read More »

    Why Carly Fiorina might actually be far better off NOT making the prime time CNN debate

    As it stands now, there’s a good chance that Carly Fiorina may not qualify for the top ten, prime time CNN debate in a few weeks, and again be relegated to the so called “kiddie table.” This is because CNN is using an average of all polls, including those taken early on, before Carly made such an impact at the FOX debate. CNN says it | Read More »

    Planned Parenthood Needs Your Support

    Katha Pollitt, a columnist for The Nation, a liberal rag that sometimes passes itself off as an intellectual exercise, recently published an article so absurd in its assertions as to induce either silly laughter or crying for the author’s stupidity.  For those of you who wish to read the original article, it can be found here.  http://www.thenation.com/article/even-if-you-havent-had-an-abortion-you-owe-planned-parenthood/ The bottom line of the pro-death movement is put | Read More »

    1508 Some Boundaries Cannot Be Crossed

    Some boundaries cannot be crossed without consequences.  As Erwin Lutzer documents so well in his study of lessons learned from the early rise of Nazi Germany “When a Nation Forgets God”, others have been where our country is now with predictable results. There are two things at the top of the list of things God abhors – evil in the name of love and idolatry. | Read More »

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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 »

    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

    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 »

    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.

    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.  Hussain is also linked to the Garland, Texas, draw Mohammed attack.

    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 »
