Should the US Constitution be amended to raise the age of eligibility to be President?
The Framers in their wisdom decided that having attained 35 years of age ( and hopefully, experience) was sufficient to be elected president. This is a non-partisan analysis…but OK..before I get to the core of my thesis, let’s state the obvious. If the age of eligibility had been changed to, say, 50, the nation would have been spared Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. To paraphrase | Read More »
Does Ted Cruz have a better chance to become Speaker of the House than President?
Please note that I didn’t ask in which office you would prefer to see Cruz serve. For 99.99% of Red Staters, the answer is a given: we’d all love to see him as our next President. I myself signed up several months ago to draft him, paid my $25, and have the bumper sticker on my car. But happily watching how Cruz has defended, motivated | Read More »
Will every GOP 2016 presidential candidate run promising to REVERSE Obama’s executive order on amnesty?
It seems that daily we hear reports, rumors, leaks that sometime in the near future, Obama will pick up his pen and sign an unconstitutional executive order which will amnesty several million illegals. The thing about executive orders is just that: they are executive orders, and not laws, and are thus subject to cancellation by the next president. One of the first actions Obama took | Read More »
What if Hamas chartered a liner, put 1,000+ Palestinian kids aboard, and sailed for NYC?
Author’s mea culpa ( and some necessary background perspective): I admit it. I used to like George Will. There, I said it. I always did. Maybe it’s because we share a love for the great game of baseball, America’s national pastime. So much so that more than a year ago, I posted a diary on Red State: “An open letter to George Will: Time to | Read More »
In case you hadn’t noticed ( or forgotten);Thad Cochran is in line to be the next chair of the Senate Appropriations committee
Much has been written about the contested Mississippi GOP primary. How Haley Barbour and the GOPe..along with their K street pals… will do anything to hang onto power, etc…. As one who has followed the primary in Mississippi carefully for months, I suddenly realized that one simple fact has rarely, if ever been mentioned: If Thad Cochran is re-elected, and the GOP takes control of | Read More »
Video: When burying a dead terrorist, you might want to remove the suicide vest first
Early entry for this year’s Darwin Award.. Note: Video has some very graphic images. http://www.israelvideonetwork.com/when-burying-a-terrorist-you-might-want-to-remove-the-suicide-vest-first No doubt the images will be on the news tonight, blaming the Israelis.. Looking at it closely, it seems the explosion was under the body..possibly one terrorist faction decimating another.. Don’t quite get the reason for the multiple “Allula Akbars!”..unless the cameraman was the bomber.. Can anyone translate the Hebrew | Read More »
OK…where are all the so-called “moderate Muslims” denouncing the persecution of Christians in Iraq? How about just one?? Anybody?
Well, we’ve heard for years how Islam is the religion of peace, and that it’s only a few “bad Muslims” committing all these bad acts..that they’ve perverted their faith. OK then..so where are the “moderate Muslims”..the so-called “good guys”..why aren’t they denouncing what is happening to Christians today in Iraq…they are being forced to flee their homes..forfeit everything..or get martyred..simply because of their faith. The | Read More »
Reflections on 13 dead Israeli soldiers; and understanding the meaning of the threat Israel faces ( and how the MSM ignores it)
Israel suffered 13 dead soldiers in one day’s operation in Gaza this weekend. The cumulative loss to the IDF is higher, and sadly, will grow even more before operations against Hamas are concluded. Based upon population size, Israel’s loss of 13 troops in one day is the equivalent of the US losing 500 soldiers. That is a full Batallion being wiped out in one day. The US | Read More »
Israel kills a few Palestinians – the whole world wails! Muslims kill 200,000 Syrians – the whole world yawns
First, let’s be clear about one thing; I’m not trying to be flippant about the horrific civilian death tolls all across the middle east. But it’s interesting, and well, obvious to note the…. shall we say “discrepancy” in how the MSM deals with the two body counts. Israel has started an operation in Gaza to degrade Hamas. The terrorists are launching thousands of rockets into | Read More »
(GASP!!!) Obama has lost Joe Biden: Now THIS is a BIG F*****G DEAL!!!
It’s not easy to take seriously anything that comes out of Biden’s mouth: indeed, one wonders if the VP himself ever really understands what he is saying, or attempting to convey. However, it appears that Joe is attempting to put some distance between himself and his boss. Unless he decides to move to New Zealand, ( or the moon) it won’t work. You can watch | Read More »
