Happy Birthday, Marines

    Go to any Marine post early in the morning, and you’re likely to hear the sound of boots thumping in unison against the pavement, and the voices of Marines calling cadence as they run in formation. Some of them are probably injured. There’s a good chance some of them are running off a hangover, but they’re out there anyway, covering down and in step, double-timing | Read More »

    Marita Noon: On climate change, Catholic leaders must believe in miracles

    For the first time, “Catholic leaders representing all regional and national bishops conferences” have come together in a “joint appeal.” According to reporting in the New York Times, Cardinal Oswald Gracias, archbishop of Mumbai, India, called the October 26 meeting at the Vatican a “historic occasion.” What brought all these Catholic leaders together for the first time? Not the refugee crisis in Europe. Not the plight of Christians | Read More »

    How Not To Let The Leftist Media Pick Our Nominee

    Democrat media have stepped up their attacks on Republican presidential candidates, to help elect Hillary Clinton and to drive traffic to their web sites, but mostly to drive traffic to their web sites. Conservatives and Republicans should not give the media cover by joining in these attacks on one another. I don’t have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun | Read More »

    There Must Be Consequences

    The University of Missouri protesters’ first demand: Admit White Privilege. They know that once the institution accepts their theory, it becomes fact. Everything the school does from now on will be colored by their new “truth.” The protesters’ successful strategy ought to be co-opted by the right in its battle against media bias. The left makes demands that reshape the institutions they target. However, the | Read More »

    The Democrats are Starting to Party Like its 1968

    In 1968, the Democratic Party “invited” scores of protesters to their convention in Chicago.  In the minds of many, what was supposed to illustrate just how “with it” the Democrats were ended up with police fighting with protesters throughout the city.  The TV news coverage resulted in Mayor Daley receiving 135,000 letters supporting police action balanced against 5,000 against.  The Party had lasted eight years | Read More »

    University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe wimps out

    Hey GOP: Stop Whining And Ignore Your Bully, They Want You To React, Idiot

    I have a solution, and it’s simple in nature, never been tried, and completely effective in 2015: Ignore the media, ignore them. Repeat, do not talk to any national media outlets that come in the form of print newspaper or television broadcast. Tell me it’s not possible and I’ll tell you you’ll never see a Republican president for the next fifteen years. It’s time Republicans | Read More »

    Hey Wall Street Journal: Open Borders-Amnesty is the Hugest Cronyism of All

    The political definition of Cronyism is: government policy that favors one or more specific beneficiaries – at the expense of everyone else. To wit: $80 billion of the 2009 “Stimulus” was wasted on “green energy” companies – 80% of whom were Barack Obama donors. Amongst the parade of horribles contained therein: the government took money from energy companies – to fund competitors to their energy | Read More »

    If Obama moves to close Gitmo by executive order, Republicans MUST immediately impeach; or we no longer have any semblance of a constitutional republic

    Rumors are beginning to emerge that Obama is planning his latest effort to subvert the Constitution by ordering Gitmo closed, and the transfer of the remaining prisoners to prisons in the US. Should he take this action, congressional Republicans will have absolutely NO option but to commence impeachment. If they fail to act, then they might at well shut Congress down; for we will no | Read More »

    Obama Denies Keystone Pipeline: Is This the End?

    On Friday Barack Obama announced that he had denied a permit to TransCanada, the builder of the Keystone pipeline.  Many consider this the death knell of the project.  The history of the pipeline is tortuous and began in the Bush administration.  It was punted to the Obama administration which ordered another EPA study.  Surprisingly, the Obama EPA- in a rare case of the application of | Read More »

    Yale Millennials: The Future Of America Doesn't Look So Bright

    Yale University is the third highest ranked university in the United States, according to U.S. News and World Report, with a draconian acceptance rate of 6.3%.  One would presume Yale is where our nation’s next leaders are groomed.  Well, quite frankly, if this is the case, we are in serious trouble. A few days before Halloween, an email from Yale’s Intercultural Affairs Council to its | Read More »

    Why I Support Cruz Over Carson

    Ben Carson is a brilliant surgeon, a man highly motivated by his faith and conviction, and on the literal opposite end of the spectrum as Trump when it comes to being loud and obnoxious. But he’s still not going to win us the presidency. He suffers from the same problem all political outsiders do; he has no experience on presentation and confrontation. For example, he’s | Read More »

    Why Da’ish do not fear America

Nebraska university tells students not to say ‘crazy,’ ‘ghetto’ and other bad words By Deena Winter / November 4, 2015 The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has launched a campaign to get students to stop using certain words and phrases including “man up,” “no homo,” “retarded,” “ghetto,” “crazy” and “rape” (out of context).

    Tyshawn Lee's Life Mattered

    Earlier this week, Tyshawn Lee, a 9 year old boy in Chicago, was murdered because of his father’s involvement in a gang. Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy called it, “probably the most abhorrent, cowardly, unfathomable crime that I’ve witnessed in 35 years of policing.” Tyshawn’s father, Pierre Stokes, made a statement to the Chicago Tribune: “If it wasn’t a target, he wouldn’t have got hit | Read More »

    Straus’ Dirty Tricks

    Whether it’s on the floor or the campaign trail, the ruling cartel in the Texas House loves dirty tricks. The coalition of Democrats and liberal Republicans do anything they can to thwart the commonsense reforms Texans want in state government. We saw it over and over again last session. Such as when the chairman of the Appropriations Committee, John Otto (R-Dayton), refused to allow public | Read More »

    Who Wins in the Jindal-Cruz Cage Match?

    Ok, cage match might not be fair. That would imply something along the lines of a Trump-Christie slugfest. And Cruz really, really doesn’t like cage matches.  No, this might not get that bad, but Gov. Bobby Jindal has challenged Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% to a debate. Jindal said he wants the debate next week, in Milwaukee. Both will actually be in Wisconsin Tuesday | Read More »

    Yesterday Trump called Politico dishonest. Today he is spreading their Ben Carson lie.

    Yesterday Trump called Politico dishonest. Today he is spreading their Ben Carson lie.

    RedState’s own Leon Wolf did a great job exposing the Politico story about Ben Carson and West Point as a lie. Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel is also churning out great information on Twitter regarding the story. I want to focus on what Donald Trump is doing with the story, however. Yesterday, November 5, Donald Trump had this to say about Politico: “Look, Politico is | Read More »

    Watch Justice Kennedy tell us he’s a Nazi god

    At a recent town hall event. SCOTUS justice Kennedy (supreme marriage potentate to whom we owe absolute allegiance) makes some interesting comments while trying to answer a student’s questions about officials who object to laws. You can watch it here. A student asked: “You claim new insights into the nature of marriage require states to issue marriage licenses in accord with this alternative version of | Read More »

    Donald Trump has turned off many potential supporters by ignoring Ronald Reagan’s Eleventh Commandment; to speak no evil of fellow Republicans. He has lost sight of his major opponents, the Obama Administration failures, Hillary Clinton’s incompetence and lies and the Democrat Party’s determination to socialize America. Minimizing or destroying his Republican Party opponents is a failed strategy. No doubt, Democrat campaign professionals are archiving Trump’s | Read More »

    The Herman Cain-ing of Carson Has Begun

    This will be the beginning of the breakdown of Carson’s support. This story, plus questions about other stories he’s told about his past will continue to erode his support (little by little). I’m not saying this is a good or bad thing, just that it will happen. And the MSM hasn’t even attacked his faith yet (and they will soon). As an FYI, the Adventist | Read More »


    The Attorney General of the State of New York has begun action against the ExxonMobil Corporation to, in the words of The New York Times, “determine whether the company lied to the public about the risks of climate change or to investors about how such risks might hurt the oil business.” To the people excited about this prospect, this investigation is the opening salvo in | Read More »

    And then there were 4: the pundits are right, it's Cruz and Rubio

    Mike Huckabee tweeted “We are months away from actual votes being cast and neither the pundits nor the press will decide this election, the people will.”  This after he was unceremoniously dumped from the main 9pm stage in the Fox Business News debate to be held Nov. 10 in Milwaukee. I like Huckabee.  I’ve met him a couple of times, and found him to be | Read More »

    Russia About To Strategically Bomb ISIS…The End Is Nigh

    Obama FAKE “New York Girlfriend” vs. Carson’s REAL “Bob”

    CNN was ready for Ben Carson, but they’re still not ready to tell the truth. When discussing the media’s “vetting,” Dr. Ben Carson asked CNN’s Alyson Camerota, “Is that what you did with this current President?”  Camerota was locked and loaded with a response: “Yes. President Obama’s autobiography… was also vetted. Don’t you remember that there was a whole question about his girlfriend and people went back | Read More »

    Why are so many Crazy or Idiotic Ideas becoming National Law?

    Most politicians crave power.  All politicians who want to remain in office in a democracy cater to the constituency that will deliver them a victory, whether legal or not.  So where you live determines your constituency. Radicals and aggrieved minorities always want to change something.  For example, NAMBLA wants men to be able to love boys.  La Raza wants parts of the U.S. returned to | Read More »

    The Trump Candidacy is Based on False Premises

    Argument 1: Trump is self-funding and therefore he is not at risk of acting like a puppet to donors.   First, this line of attack was always silly. It may be true that the Democrats that Trump donated to for decades did him favors (mostly assisted him in stealing private property through eminent domain), but that doesn’t mean all elected officials act like puppets.

    Texas, Guns and Dildos

    Texas, Guns and Dildos

    Yes- you read that title correctly.  This past June, the Texas legislature passed and Governor Abbott signed a law allowing students and faculty to carry concealed weapons on campus and in classrooms.  Even in Texas, this was previously disallowed.  The legislature’s action was in response to recent shootings on college campuses. But, why- you ask- are students protesting with a sex toy?  The reason is | Read More »

    Rush the Big Voice on the Right

    In a recent article in the National Review Rush Limbaugh, the God Father of conservative media recently catalogued how he not only birthed but also nurtured the growth of an alternative voice alongside what he aptly calls the “state-controlled media.” I can remember the first time I heard him in 1986.  I was so excited to hear someone say what I was thinking.  For years | Read More »

What we are losing is the battle for the soul of Western | Read More »

    Paul Ryan’s Decisive Speech

    What Rubio needs to say at the next debate in response to Trump’s attacks

    Based on Trump’s media appearances over the past week, I think it’s safe to say he’ll go after Rubio at the next debate, probably regarding his financial problems and immigration. We’ve already seen how Rubio has defended himself on those issues, and so far nothing’s been able to stick. I know he’ll be prepared for Trump’s attacks on these issues, but I have some unsolicited | Read More »

    Obama: Healthcare is For Closers

    It’s been over five years since Obamacare passed, and UNEXPECTEDLY everyone still hates it. I was led to believe that “We have to pass the bill so we can find out what’s in it” was a prediction that people would love Obamacare once they found out how it worked, as opposed to an indication that Rep.

    Myra Adams: November 16 is IRS D-day for Clinton Foundation Charity Fraud

    November 16 is the day that the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation must respond to an extended annual deadline and file their IRS Form 990 for tax year 2014. Ultimately, the Clinton Foundation’s 2014 filing will prove if our nation is governed by laws applied equally to all — or by corrupt political officials who, at the highest level of government, turn the other | Read More »

    Understanding the REAL importance of the CNBC debate debacle: laying down markers for the 2016 general election debates. (Time to change the format?)

    The CNBC debate was a disaster for the MSM. It exposed, for all to see,  to a heretofore unimaginable degree, the blatant partisanship of the MSM.  The candidates on stage were able to turn it to their advantage, launching memorable, and very successful attacks on the three moderators, and the format in general. As a result, we are now seeing considerable shifting in the debate | Read More »

    The Tuesday Elections and What They Mean (or Don’t Mean)

    Sometimes the elections held the year before a Presidential election year can discern certain trends.  If so, then there are a few take-aways from the elections this past Tuesday.  Instead of doing a state-by-state analysis, it is best to look at the elections generally and see if they tell us anything about possibilities in 2016. 1. Democrats performed really poorly and below expectations.  Coming into | Read More »

    The Liberty Test – Part 4

    The final phrase of the Preamble to the Constitution gets to the heart of what motivates the liberty candidate. This should be their motto.

    Video of Trump defending his eminent domain position.

    Trump is the master of his own eminent domain, as he spins support for the Keystone Pipeline into supporting private entities that profit from public eminent domain laws. BTW, can anybody tell me how to embed this video, instead of a link?

    OH says NO to Pot, for now

    Ohio overwhelmingly voted NO to issue 3, which would’ve created a constitutional amendment legalizing marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes. While voters in municipal year elections tend be more conservative, it wasn’t the Right that smoked issue 3, it was the Left.

    Sorry Children Of America, Transgenders Are More Important Than You

    The US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights made a startling announcement Monday, setting a dangerous precedent for minor children in public schools.  After a two year investigation, they have found that a Chicago area school district is in violation of Title IX, which is a federal law prohibiting discrimination in schools based on sex.

    Twilight Zone Zombie Education Apocalypse: Detroit Government Schools Fail 95% of the Time…

    Sometimes in life there are things that are so obvious that when others don’t see it you’re left scratching your head wondering if you are living in a Twilight Zone episode. Such was the case when I read a headline last week: Detroit Public Schools: 93% Not Proficient in Reading; 96% Not Proficient in Math.

    In Defense Of Quinton Tarantino: Opinions, Sometimes Ya Know?

    I’m not a fan of Quinton Tarantino the director or the person, I don’t hate him, I just feel like he’s probably a tool in his overall existence.
