Chris Christie’s Hail Mary
Chris Christie recently unveiled a plan to overhaul Social Security. This is his Hail Mary to get back in the game of running for President. Though I applaud his decision to make entitlement reform a major portion of his platform, his proposal is merely another veiled tax increase on the wealthy. There are two portions to his reform plan. The first is to raise the | Read More »
CNN Host Sally Kohn Race-Baits Like a Pro
Sally Kohn probably thinks Jews inflate prices on purpose because others want to “Jew them down.” Oh, wait, Sally Kohn is Jewish. CNN host Kohn definitely thinks that police officers only let people who’ve misplaced their wallet on the NYC subway for free because they’re white and upperclass. Forgot my wallet. MTA officer let me on subway for free. #classprivilege #whiteprivilege — Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) | Read More »
WE GAVE IT ALL AWAY!
Hillary and her sleazy hubby, Slick Willy, are hip deep in a financial scandal. She is the front runner of the Democratic Party. If she is the best they have …. Our illustrious Speaker of the House says the Clintons are “good people”. He seems to have a problem with judging character. He also has many more shortcomings that it would be redundant to discuss | Read More »
Damn It, THERE HAS TO BE A LIMIT!
TREASON: US Code, Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 115, Para 2381 “Whosoever, having allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000, | Read More »
The Untold Story of Garland Texas and Media Tolerance of Gender Violence
Two separate but related events held at Garland, Texas Independent School District’s Curtis Culwell Center evidence media coverage that selectively expresses tolerance of sexism, gender violence and hate crimes. Culwell Center first hosted on January 17th Sound Vision Foundation’s Stand with the Prophet, which it stated was more than an event. It was “A movement to defend the Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message” | Read More »
Is Oprah Teaching Subud?
Author, senior editor of Charisma News, and director of Awakening House of Prayer, Jennifer LeClaire rightly identifies Oprah’s recent advocacy of “spirituality” and prayer as deceptive. During Oprah’s recent Stanford University lecture “on a meaningful life,” LeClaire differentiates between prayer within a biblical perspective and something else that incorporates “New Age meditation exercises.” Interestingly, and quite deceptively, Oprah’s all inclusive, interfaith message emphasizing rhythm and | Read More »
Silent Christian Bashing: The Rise of Common Era Dating and Fall of B.C. Dating
Re-posted from World Net Daily Daily headlines prove that Christian persecution has reached epidemic proportions, creating a global humanitarian and political crisis, most notably in the Middle East and Africa. Concurrently, all Christians throughout the world are experiencing another form of persecution. On the surface it is peaceful and silent, but underneath just as deadly as the physical kind sans the torture, beheadings and refugees. | Read More »
Sympathy for Geller
We seem to live in a society where the most outraged win. This has not escaped the enemies of Western civilization and of America. This has also not escaped the hoodlums pillaging the streets of American cities like Ferguson and Baltimore who use outrage as an excuse to re-enact the sacking of Rome. Outrage seems to cover an awful lot of sins. Just take a | Read More »
Bill O’Reilly, I think you’d be surprised what Jesus would do
Hey Bill, been watching you for years. Sometimes I agree with your “Talking Points” memo and sometimes, like now, I think you’ve got it wrong. I mean, really wrong. Your Talking Points memo of May 7, “How Emotion can Damage America” was not a total washout. Any individual, with a shred of humanity, is in favor of defeating ISIS and the jihad. However, both you | Read More »
I guess this is one final plea to the Establishment not to shove Jeb Bush down our throats. With all the viable candidates we have running it boggles the mind why you would want this clown over some of the others. Please, I beg you, give us even Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 90%. While still flawed, next to another Bush, he is | Read More »
ANARCHY IN BALTIMORE
Should dedicated police officers be intimidated and threatened by street mobs? Should our first line of defense against criminality, public lewdness and disorder, be under siege by those intent on overthrowing our Nation? Should police be disbanded or made to relinquish their weapons? If we capitulate, America as we know it will be history. Demonstrators right to free speech and to assemble peacefully are | Read More »
Unions – To Serve and Protect Whom?
One of the important take-aways of the Freddie Gray tragedy and the Baltimore riots is the expanded awareness that, while the police union does believe in the mission to “serve and protect” the public – their first priority is to serve and protect their members. For example, by union contract in Baltimore, police have 10 days before they must answer questions regarding incidents like the | Read More »
The Strange Case of America and Iran
The Obama administration’s idea of foreign policy “leadership” is predicated upon naivete and miscalculation. I can think of no single foreign policy success. His first term started by alienating two countries that expended tremendous political capital to base a missile defense system. This was followed by the great apology tour among Arab countries, bowing to a foreign king, “resetting” relations with Russia with a prop | Read More »
Reflections on the British Election
For the past 70 years of “Pax Americana”, in its contest with the Soviet Union and China the United States has had a circle of close supporters and allies – Great Britain, Canada, Germany, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Australia, and perhaps France. We owe our view of the relationship between government and the people – and our American constitution – to the British thinking which evolved from the Magna | Read More »
It’s Complicated: Millennials and the GOP
It’s the question President Obama’s campaign answered correctly, and arguably one of the most important lessons Republicans can learn from. After all, according to an analysis from the post-presidential election of 2012: “Mitt Romney would have cruised to the White House had he managed to split the youth vote with Barack Obama.” Since I am part of the ” Millennials” generation I can argue confidentially | Read More »
Hillary Clinton is a Bore
As long as Hillary Clinton is the presumptive Democrat nominee, we won’t see the same exuberance from crowds that we witnessed when the wide-eyed flocked to see Barack Obama. But Hillary is a female, and, if anything, the Left should love their chance to be on the “right side of history”. After all, they’re the progressive, enlightened ones who keep reminding us it’s 2015 and | Read More »
The First Law of Progressivism
I think a physics term can help in our quest to better know the “Progressive” strategy. And by progressive I mean liberal democrat, socialist, Marxist, secular humanist/materialist, etc.

Dogs, Fleas, and Jeb Bush’s Evolution on Marriage
God is back in the news with marriage and religious freedom debates and the 2016 presidential election underway. The Wall Street Journal first reported in January of a key adviser’s recommendation that Jeb Bush, a possible 2016 Republican presidential nominee, discuss his faith to better identify with white, born-again Christians. The demographic represents the majority of 2012 GOP primary voters (56 percent in Iowa, 64 | Read More »
The Hypocrisy of the Left’s Premise that “It Takes a Village” to Raise a Child
Baltimore is just the latest example of failed liberal policies on display that led to the expected outcome of civil unrest. Sadly a young man died and it finally served as the straw that broke the camel’s back. Make no mistake, the discontent amongst its citizenry was already nearing the boiling point. Some of the stats from WSJ paint a clear picture of a non-functioning large city | Read More »
Where is Scott Walker?
Where has Scott Walker gone? Sixty days ago the man was a lock, a shoe-in, the fearless leader who faced down the union bosses, corrupt prosecutors, and leftist press, coming out with an arm raised in a “one-two-three, the winner!” salute. He was the golden boy, the governor on a throne of skulls. Now there’s a veritable stampede of Republican virgins in presidential politics announcing | Read More »
The Abuse of Compassion
Forces that want to destroy Christianity in America are abusing the Christian tenets of compassion and love for one’s neighbor so as to box Christians into an escalating series of moral dilemmas. It is high time that we Christians recognize these insidious tactics for what they are and join together to effectively oppose them. Our political landscape has become such that certain groups have used | Read More »
Some news outlets (but too few) have recently reported about a disturbing trend on college campuses. No- its not rape or misogynist fraternities and the like. The Brandeis Foundation did a survey and discovered that 54% of Jewish students on college campuses have experienced some form of anti-Semitism in the past year. These incidents run the gamut from comments made to physical altercations. This study | Read More »
Why I Support the Nomination of Jeb Bush.
After reviewing the other available candidates and carefully weighing their qualifications, leadership ability, character, background, experience and philosophy, I have arrived at the conclusion that Jeb is far and away more qualified than any of them. There are those who say that a major drawback to Jeb is that he would be a continuation of the Bush Dynasty. However, his probable major opponent, Hillary Clinton, | Read More »
Free Speech and Liberal Hypocrisy
Regarding the Texas shootings over the Mohammed drawings, liberals have made hypocrisy into an art form. In the past two days, many liberals (including in the media) stepped up to declare that while they support free speech, creating an event to antagonize Moslems is inappropriate at best and provocative at worst. While they may be right, liberals remained silent when “artist” Serrano placed a crucifix | Read More »
Huckabee’s Education Wordsmithing
Mike Huckabee is a master communicator and retail politician. In fact, among prominent political figures alive today, he is second only to fellow Hope, Arkansas native Bill Clinton in those categories. Huckabee is now running for president once again and his record is coming under scrutiny. Actually, the process of vetting Huckabee began awhile ago when it became clear he was interested in a do-over. Much | Read More »
Mitch McConnell Giddy Like a Schoolgirl at Submitting to Obama’s Rule
With the first enhanced majority—as Newt Gingrich called it—in the House and Senate, we in the rank-and-file GOP are being treated to the skilled governing of our leadership team, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 61% and Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%. Gingrich waxes poetic about Boehner’s ability to govern. The process of governing itself isn’t enough, however. Liberals governed | Read More »
It’s Time to Put an End to Muslim Immigration
It is time to end all Muslim immigration into America. While Islam itself cannot be banned in America because it is a protected religious right, we can certainly take steps to end the flow of more adherents to that poisonous ideology into our country. Make no mistake – Islam is poison. It is a poison that appears innocuous in small doses. But as a nation | Read More »
The Retire John McCain GoFundMe Project
Well, sort of. Want to see Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 61% retire before ever taking the oath of office again in the U.S. Senate? I thought so. So how to make that happen? Consider McCain challenger Alex Meluskey. I have met him and, right now, he is the most serious, and only officially-announced, challenger to McCain. Right after meeting Alex in person, | Read More »
Dr. Oz and Genetics
Dr. Oz- that strange television creature of Oprah Winfrey- has shed light on the controversy surrounding genetically modified food. His cause is one of mandatory labeling of foods that contain so-called GMOs in an effort to allow the consumer of food (everyone) choice. Recently, a cabal of ten doctors sent a letter to Columbia University (where Oz is a cardiothoracic surgeon) requesting that he be | Read More »
Rand Paul and the Third Way on Race in America
You can usually tell who and what the left is afraid of by paying attention to who they attack and on what basis. For the last week the liberal media has been in paroxysms of outrage over Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 84%’s supposed insensitivity for suggesting that violence in Baltimore was caused by, among other things, “the breakdown of the family structure, | Read More »
Who’s Guarding the Guards?
Back in 1756, Edmund Burke contemplated a question on political theory. The question that he was asking came from 1st or 2nd century Latin poetry. Since then, it has been a source of inspiration for Plato, Cicero and Socrates. (All of which were influential in the thinking of Burke.) What he said was: I have defended Natural Religion against a Confederacy of Atheists and Divines. | Read More »
If Not Now; When?
America is at a crossroads, having to either choose to return to its roots, or otherwise steamroll ahead with the Left’s fanatical tactics to push their ‘utopia’ of America…we’ll all ‘meld together into one collective village’ (whether we choose to—or not). For them, no individual expression or voice is allowed to exist. They are all about tolerance until they must tolerate your voice…so those who | Read More »
Leading With the Budget
This week the Senate will follow the House in passing a federal budget that presents a remarkable contrast in governing ability and philosophy between Republicans and Democrats. When Democrats ran one or both houses of Congress, they failed for six straight years to do the most basic function of the Legislative Branch: pass a concurrent budget resolution to determine how the federal government will spend | Read More »
Free speech – fast becoming an oxymoron
When I was a little girl growing up and I would run home crying to mother, because a classmate called me names, my mother would say, “stick and stones my break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” Later in my teens, when I was busy sassing mom and dad, I’d tell them “free speech.” In today’s society, neither applies anymore, at least | Read More »
Triage. A proposed first-step solution for the nation’s “Baltimores.” But is it a conservative solution?
If we look at the utter mess that is Baltimore, and the total failure of decades of liberal policies that have all but destroyed the black family in this country, and given rise to dozens of “Baltimores” in other urban city areas (see: Detroit, Philadelphia, Newark, Atlanta, Chicago, etc…) at first glance, it seems an all-but-impossible situation to solve. There’s an inclination among some, if | Read More »
Secure Travel Partnerships Increase National Security
High security standards are necessary to preserve safe travel and to allow visitors in the United States while protecting against terrorism. Expanding the Secure Travel Partnership will help to increase security screening when tourists visit from other nations. Legislation is pending before the Congress right now that will help to both increase secure travel and preserve America’s number one services export – travel to the | Read More »
Latest Report on Global Free Trade Impediments Details the Ridiculousness
Most of us on the Center-Right very much like free trade – for at least a couple of reasons. The freer trade is – the cheaper the things traded are. Which makes life easier for everyone in the nations engaged in said trade. You know what else makes their lives easier? Not being at war. If countries are engaged in commerce with one another – | Read More »
Governing by Executive Order
Let’s start off by acknowledging that Obama’s use of Executive Orders are hardly new and groundbreaking since this tactic has been used by every President since George Washington. In terms of actual use or the pure number of Obama Executive Orders, it is not startling. In fact, he averages 33.2 per year thus far which is lower than George W. Bush’s average of 36.4 per | Read More »
Obama Seeks More Power with TPP Fast Track Bill; GOP Leaders Want to Give It to Him—Again
Congress has more than ample evidence that President Obama and his people are pathological liars, contemptuous of the constitutional powers of Congress. Obamacare, about which Obama repeatedly promised: “If you like your insurance, you can keep it,” forced cancellation of over 5 million policies people liked. Then, Obama serially violated the Constitution and spat on Congress by legalizing illegal aliens: first in 2012, when he | Read More »
Marita Noon: The Pope embraces the religion of global warming
While the Catholic Church, and all of Christianity in general, support life, one has to wonder why the Vatican would invite “darkness” in to advise it on climate change. While the abortion issue is one point of obvious conflict, others involved in the one-day event likely endorse a variety of views that disagree with a biblical perspective. When the advisors’ beliefs are the antithesis of the church’s, why should their opinions be invited and accepted as fact on one narrow topic? Why would the Pope join himself with those who are not Christ followers? The scriptural admonishment is similar to a parent who worries about the people his children run around with because, if they don’t share the same beliefs, the crowd often becomes the influencer—and not the other way around.

Carly and Ben announce and change the conversation
This morning, Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett Packard and former Senate candidate for California announced her run for the Presidency. Also announcing, Dr. Ben Carson, retired pediatric neurosurgeon who burst upon the political scene in 2013 at the National Prayer Breakfast held in Washington. Good for them! Now that the rounds of applause, good wishes and pats on the back have concluded, can either | Read More »
Chairman Gowdy: You MUST change the questioning procedure when Hillary testifies
It’s just been reported that Hillary Clinton will appear before the House Select Committee on Benghazi this month. She has refused Gowdy’s request to appear twice, the first time in a closed door session. Obviously, she has a strategy in mind. I don’t know what will come of it, as Gowdy has stated that he must first have ALL the relevant emails before she can | Read More »
Hal Heiner owes me an apology
When I asked Hal Heiner last year to help with the effort to stop ObamaCare in Kentucky, he looked at me like I didn’t have any Grey Poupon. That wasn’t really a problem; having people look down their nose at you from time to time is just part of the deal. But Heiner’s continued insistence that he would do nothing to get Kentucky out of | Read More »
California Banks on Obama Administration Not Enforcing Abortion Conscience Law
Last week in Sacramento, California, legislators and abortion advocates finally explained how they square the state’s new abortion insurance mandate with a federal law prohibiting it. They believe they can count on the Obama administration not to enforce the law. On Aug. 22, 2014, the California Department of Managed Health Care issued an order requiring every health insurance plan licensed in California to cover all | Read More »
Why we can’t all get along
It’s a beautiful day in my city, so nice the dog and I decide a trip to the park is a good idea. Lots of locals shared the same idea but we were lucky enough to find a parking spot in the shade next to the lake. It was a nice, quiet diverse crowd with lots of dogs and kids, blankets and food. After our walk | Read More »
Ben Carson is taking the political dialogue to a new level
Carson is striving to take the political dialogue to a different level, one of approaching issues from the standpoint of common sense as opposed to Left vs. Right, or Conservative vs. Liberal. He is challenging people to use their brains when they vote as opposed to simply checking off a “D” or an “R” that follows a politicians’ name. If the political junkies could abstain from the corrupt manner in which the political parties are selfishly fighting for their political gains and perpetuation of power, it would represent a genuine upheaval within the American political environment. The Carson campaign can be understood from this perspective – it will not be an ordinary campaign.

Jihad Struck Texas But Will the Obama Administration Continue to Bury Its Head in the Sand
Jihad struck Texas last night. It’s just the latest skirmish in a global radical Islamic assault on free speech – on freedom.
It’s a war. ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, and al Qaeda are just a few of the named brigades in this radical Islamic jihadist army.
The two Islamic terrorists who opened fire on a free speech art exhibit in Texas are merely the latest casualties in this war. But they are a reminder of who the enemy is.

The “Consider This” Podcast, Episode 104: Gravity Payments CEO Weighs In On the Minimum Wage
CEO Dan Price of Gravity Payments decided to raise the wages of all his employees to a minimum of $70,000, while reducing his almost-$1 million salary down to that same $70,000. The Left love it, the Right hated it. But we don’t know how it will turn out, so it’s too early to celebrate.

The Pros & Cons of the DOJ’s Pilot Program Awarding Body Cameras To Police Agencies
On Friday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced the launch of a $20 million pilot program which will award body cameras to police agencies across the country. The program signals an attempt to improve the relationship between law enforcement and the communities they serve. Lynch’s press release follows the turmoil in Baltimore sparked by the death of Freddie Gray, who died in police custody. Prior to | Read More »
Inmates Will Be Made To Care
Even inmates will be made to care about the liberal Gaystapo-obsessed quest to quash Christians. In 2003, both houses of Congress passed the Prison Rape Elimination Act by unanimous consent, and President Bush signed it into law. Unfortunately, implementation of the law was left to future administrations, and if you give a mile of authority to the Jacobins in the Obama administration, they take a | Read More »
