It is time for a constitutional amendment to limit a president to one (1) four year elected term
The framers intended our system of government to have three separate, but equal branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. In the last 75 years, the federal government ( the executive) has greatly expanded in both size and scope, and now intrudes daily into the life of every American. In addition we have seen how an out-of control president can willfully ignore, if not flout, the Constitutional | Read More »
The closing of Leon’s mind…… and thread?
Now I know what to get Leon for Christmas…a copy of Allan Bloom’s book. I’ve been on RS a few years..first time I ever saw a thread shut down. Is he self-suspending his account? ???? Doesn’t seem the right way to facilitate a debate/discourse..
Is Obama’s disdain for Netanyahu designed to forestall an Israeli strike on the Iranian nuke sites.
Much has been written of late about Obama’s behavior towards Netanyahu. Just the other day, we heard talk that the administration would begin to “reassess” the relationship with Israel. Yes, Obama is both petty and petulant, and worked overtime to try and oust Bibi from office. But the comments and actions coming from the White House are so out of proportion to Bibi’s supposed “faux | Read More »
Did Hillary’s three top aides at State sign the separation papers when they left?
Why hasn’t this question been asked as of yet? OK….Hillary’s dodged a bullet, for now. Seems she didn’t have to, sort of, sign the standard separation agreement when she left the State Dept. There are reports that her three top aides…..er, political staff, at State..Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Philippe Reines..also had private email accounts on the Clinton DIY server. Benghazi committee head has subpoenaed | Read More »
So, Lindsey Graham wants to run for president…AND will vote to confirm Loretta Lynch as AG?
Really? REALLY? REALLY??? “The Hill” is reporting that will oppose Loretta Lynch for Attorney General, if and when her nomination comes to the Senate floor. Assuming all Democrats vote for her, Lynch would need the votes of FOUR GOP senators to be confirmed. Flake, Collins, Graham, and Hatch have previously suggested they might vote for her. Hatch is thoroughly despicable. He vowed to be a | Read More »
What in the name of Adonai is the matter with about 50% of Israelis?
Facing an existential threat from an-about-to-become-a nuclear-state Iran, it appears that this week a slender majority of Israelis are about to toss out on his tuchus one of the great leaders of this century, and chose instead…..what? As one who is a great support of Israel, and who admires the monumental accomplishments of the Jewish state in a few mere decades, I am, to put | Read More »
In case you’d forgotten, this isn’t Tom Cotton’s first rodeo….er…letter
Sen ‘s open letter to the Iranian mullahs, signed by 46 additional GOP senators, has generated a massive hue and cry, and general teeth gnashing, by the usual gang on the left. It’s also had the remarkable effect of causing both SecState and State mouthpiece Jen Psaki to admit that Obama’s putative deal with Iran would be non-binding on future presidents. But many may have | Read More »
The genius of Trey Gowdy: despite criticism from some conservatives, he’s doing everything right.
I’ve long admired . I was thrilled when it was announced that he would head the House Special Committee on Benghazi. I felt that his experience as a former Federal prosecutor would be invaluable, and equally important, that he had the cojones to stand up to, and push back, against Democrats on the committee, yet not make himself a lightning rod, as was Issa. Many | Read More »
Red State contest: Guess how many of Hillary’s emails will pertain to Benghazi?
Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State for 4 years. That’s 1460 days. She’s announced that she has just turned over to the State Dept all of her relevant emails, (she’s considerately omitted all those related to planning for Chelsea’s wedding)…..some 55,000 pages. Now admittedly, we don’t know if there is more than one email per page…but probably not. So, if we do the math, that | Read More »
Chris Christie’s BIG opportunity: Demand that Hillary answer questions, like he did at “Bridgegate” press conference
Chris Christie’s nascent WH bid is struggling. He’s way down in the polls, and facing an uphill battle to gain traction. However, the recent revelations about Hillary’s DIY email system have given the governor a superb opportunity to thrust himself back into the national debate, and in the process gain favor with Republicans of all stripes. Anyone remember “Bridgegate?” For days it was the obsession | Read More »
