Emanuel To Chicago Tribune: Stupak Bloc Held Winning Hand

    Rahm Emanuel, along with other Chicago mayoral candidates, was queried on Friday, January 14th, by the Chicago Tribune editorial board.  Emanuel had some interesting statements to make on Obamacare which contradict Stupak’s contention that his bloc’s votes were not needed to pass the bill: Rahm Emanuel: …President Obama was determined to get his healthcare bill passed. There were 14 votes that were holding up, and | Read More »


    “A Ballad of the Boston Tea-Party”

    In honor of the occasion I found an old poem by Oliver Wendall Holmes, A Ballad of the Boston Tea-Party , that is appropriate for tonight. These lines from the poem are on a plaque at the location of Griffin’s Wharf , the site of the original Tea Party: No! ne’er was mingled such a draught In palace, hall, or arbor, As freemen brewed and | Read More »

    Securing Liberty

    Tonight was a wonderful victory for ordinary Americans. Remember where we were two years ago? Who, then, would ever have predicted tonight? And it didn’t happen because any D.C. national party operatives made plans to turn things around. It came about because of We the People. And that’s as it should be. Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, | Read More »

    The Date-Time Stamp of Glimmering Dawn

    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures… Into the devastation of our world came the God-man Jesus Christ. A man who outrageously said He was God; a man who ripped to | Read More »

    In Defense of Life: The Health Care Vote

    As Obama and the Democrats defy the opinion of a majority of Americans in their attempt to ram their health care bill through Congress in an abuse of the budget reconciliation process, abortion, ironically, may be the stumbling block that shatters their machinations.  It would be eminently appropriate to see them hoist with the petard of one of their most defining tenets.  Today in Abortion | Read More »

    In Defense of Life: Roe v. Wade

    Today is the 37th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States. Since January 22, 1973, over 50,000,000 lives have ended by abortion.

George, J.D., D.Phil., McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, founder of the American Principles Project and member of the Drafting Committee of the Manhattan Declaration made | Read More »

    Voting For America

    For, borne on the night-wind of the Past, Through all our history, to the last, In the hour of darkness and peril and need, The people will waken and listen to hear The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed, And the midnight message of Paul Revere. Longfellow’s night-wind of the Past blew into the Northeast yesterday as Massachusetts elected Scott Brown to be their new senator; | Read More »

    A Demonstrably Good Idea!

    On Thursday, President Obama said: “We are open to any demonstrably good idea to supplement the steps we’ve already taken to put America back to work” Well, someone is willing to take him at his word, and you betcha she’s ready with a demonstrably good idea! Thank you, Washington, for Requesting a Demonstrably Good Idea I commend the president for acknowledging today that “there are | Read More »

    The El Alamein Elections of November 3rd, 2009

    67 years ago, November 3rd, 1942, was the beginning of the end of the Second Battle of El Alamein. By November 4th Rommel was in retreat from Montgomery’s forces. On November 10, 1942, Winston Churchill said of El Alamein, I have never promised anything but blood, tears, toil, and sweat. Now, however, The bright gleam has caught the helmets of our soldiers, and warmed and | Read More »

    The White House That Cried Wolf Sooey!

    Obama has declared swine flu to be a national emergency. Considering this statement was made while the Democrats have health care on their political agenda, the timing needs some scrutiny!  This White House has cried wolf so many times, they are reaping the crop of skepticism sown by their frequent and flagrant lies.  By continually demonstrating a predilection to dramatize a situation for their agenda, | Read More »
