    While the World Burns, America’s Demise Accelerates

    While Barack Obama flies off to scheduled fundraising events, golf outings with his staff, and phone calls to gay athletes, there are immediate crises like Gaza and the Ukraine.  Then there are the smoldering ones- 160,000 dead in Syria, ISIS in Iraq, Iran and the nuclear bomb.  The international scene is bad enough, but our “secure borders” have been crossed by over 50,000 illegal aliens | Read More »

    More Anti-Religion Crap from the Left

    Amanda Marcotte is a feminist blogger and “journalist” best known for her feminist/Leftist views.  She was a very vocal voice during the Duke lacrosse team controversy and allegations of rape.  Even though the charges were dropped and the prosecutor eventually disbarred, in the mind of Marcotte the lacrosse players were still guilty.  Illustrative of the hypocritical and bizarre mind of the Leftist, while decrying this | Read More »

    Victimhood, Martyrdom, and the Sword

    Recent events in the Middle East have clearly demonstrated that as all eyes are on Iraq, ISIS and Iran’s nuclear aspirations, the festering problems between Palestinians and Israel are very much real.  The flash point for the recent violence is the kidnapping and murder of three Jewish hikers in the West Bank.  But even before this act, Hamas had been firing rockets into Israel- a | Read More »

    The Court Next Term: Three More Potential Blockbusters- Part 2

    Making their way to the US Supreme Court are three cases that have the potential to become blockbuster cases.  It is difficult to see the Court denying them.  They involve Guantanamo detainees, the potential fate of Obamacare, and gay marriage. Recently, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, sitting en banc (but with only seven justices) ruled that the convictions of three Guantanamo detainees were invalid. | Read More »

    The Next Court Term: Five Cases That May Make News- Part 1

    Thus far, the United States Supreme Court has accepted a little more than 35 cases for the October 2014 term.  If recent terms are any indication, this represents about half their docket.  There are several jurisdictional and patent cases in the upcoming term.  In this entry, I would like to highlight four cases of interest. The first case is Alabama Democratic Conference vs. Alabama, a | Read More »

    Looking Ahead to 2016…again

    The obvious first order of business this year will be to maintain the House and win the Senate.  With that out of the way, all political attention will then turn to 2016 and the open presidential race.  I’ve been down this road before, but its always fun to handicap the list of potential candidates occasionally.  The names mentioned will be in alphabetical order, not in | Read More »

    The Creepy Donors Behind OFA

    Organizing for Action (OFA) is the successor to Organizing for America, Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.  This is proof that despite winning in 2012, Mr. Obama continues to be the Campaigner-in-Chief if nothing else.  While Harry Reid- Nevada’s solution for insomnia- suffers from KBPDS (Koch Brother Paranoid Derangement Syndrome), OFA is organized as a 501(c)4 organization that most likely received no scrutiny from Lois Lerner and | Read More »

    The Death Penalty, Abortion, and Morality

    Every person is a product of their environment.  If they are fortunate enough to be brought up in an intact family, that family and their beliefs form the basis of one’s beliefs.  This writer was raised a Catholic and I confess that as I grow older, I am relying more that faith.  Thus, I would say that I am likely a product of my Catholic upbringing to some | Read More »

    The Supreme Court Term in Review and Reaction From the Left

    Without a doubt, this past term of the Supreme Court will be forever known as the “Hobby Lobby Term.”  The reaction against this decision has been vehement, vitriolic and most of all, false.  The apoplectic reaction on the Left is nothing short of amusing.  From Harry Reid’s declaration that “five white men” are deciding contraceptive choices (Clarence Thomas is black) to Nancy Pelosi’s scare-mongering, one | Read More »

    Meet the Nevada Abortion Barbie

    There has been a lot of recent news in some quarters about an interesting down-ballot race in Nevada this year- that for Lt. Governor.  Normally these races interest very few political pundits, but the intrigue extends to 2016 and engulfs all of Nevada politics which is represented in the Senate by Ding-bat of the Year, Harry Reid. But first, a word about the Democratic candidate | Read More »
