    Retrofit Mitt

    From the flurry of news articles about another Romney bid for the Presidency in 2016, with The Wall Street Journal editorial board referring to his bid as “Romney Recycled” and the polar opposite Washington Post also penning a piece, you’d think Romney was through before he even declared himself a candidate. First, let me say, I think Romney is a decent man.  So decent in fact | Read More »

    Ceding World Leadership – One Terror Attack at a Time

    In October 2008, then candidate Barack Obama promised that if he was elected, he would fundamentally transform America.  At least that’s one promise he’s keeping. President Obama’s decision to not attend the Sunday rally in Paris in support of the right of freedom of speech, which reportedly drew close to 3 million people and 40 world leaders, was a conscious one.  At first, one might | Read More »

    #JeSuisCharlie – Charlie Hebdo – Profiles in courage

    The murdered writers and cartoonists of Parisian satirical newspaper, Charlie Hebdo, stood for something.  It’s called freedom of speech.  To paraphrase one of their editors, “I would rather die standing, than live kneeling.” In our oh, so politically correct world, where newspapers such as AP, already censor free speech under the guise of not offending anyone, Charlie Hebdo stands out like a beacon of light | Read More »

    Just when you think you’ve seen everything — having babies via the internet

    There are times when I feel as though I’m living right before the Noah and the Great Flood or the fall of the Roman Empire, where in the chronicles of both periods, there was evil, greed, and moral depravity. Today, we now have the story, courtesy of The Daily Mail, of thousands of people using online websites to find a platonic mate to have a | Read More »

    Time for a new Speaker

    NationalReview.com and Breitbart.com are both carrying articles on the recent poll by Pat Caddell and EMC Research where there is strong support among Republican voters for a new House Speaker to be elected January 5 when Congress returns.  In the telephone survey, where the question was asked, “If it were up to you, would you elect to continue as Speaker of the House or would | Read More »

    The National Mood – Malaise 1; Optimism 0

    Pew Research and USA Today’s most recent survey on the national mood shows the malaise that people feel about their government working anytime soon in the near future.  Deep political divisions within Congress, exacerbated by six years of the Obama Administration, have turned a normally optimistic public into the Scrooge-aholics. If the recent narrow passage of the cromnibus bill is any indication, it will be business | Read More »

    The Republicans’ Populist Moment: Squander or Capitalize?

    With the bid for re-election of (D-LA) now recorded in the ignominious annals of crushing defeat, the Republican gains for the 2014 mid-term elections stand at nine Senate seats for a total of 54, and 12 seats in the House for a total of 246 going into the 115th Congress in January 2015.  Among the most notable factoids, this is the largest House Republican majority | Read More »

    Hillary in 2016? Not so fast

    It was not such a long time ago that former Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton was viewed by the Democratic poobahs and her worshiping public minions as a shoe-in for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, and ultimately the White House.  But life happens, and life has found Hillary Clinton. In a recent Politico article, “Delay of Game“, we’re getting another read-between-the lines | Read More »

    Ferguson, MO – and a community in denial

    The shooting of Michael Brown, Jr. should never have happened.  That it did is a tragedy that has been decades in the making.   Since the beginning of Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society”, we have witnessed the onset of federal government largesse to a socio-economic demographic, and while the intent was well-meaning, the results have been just the opposite.  We have witnessed, and still are, the | Read More »

    Senator Charles Schumer’s Seller’s Remorse

    Normally politicians only express remorse when they’re either leaving office after a bruising election defeat, are on their way to the federal pen, on their deathbeds or have penned a memoir where a little mea culpa might hopefully elicit a fonder place in historic annals, not to mention more copies sold and $$$. Enter (D-NY) and third ranking member of the Senate Democratic Leadership. Speaking | Read More »
