    It’s Over, Hillary

    Hillary and Bill Clinton have always had what can be termed as an “Icarus” problem.  Through their years in the political office, the scandals swirled around them, but seemingly failed to engulf them:  Jennifer Flowers (and the other women); Whitewater; Travelgate; the cattle futures killing; Monica Lewinsky; Benghazi; Bill’s “business” jaunts courtesy of convicted pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein; the Clinton Foundation’s foreign donor problem; and now, | Read More »

    Obama’s Munich

    As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prepares for his speech before the US Congress on Tuesday morning, Obama’s negotiations with Iran continue down a potential course of no return, for the United States and the world.  No, this is not hyperbole. What immediately comes to mind is the response of the Administration and its acolytes ratcheting up of their efforts to an all-time high “Diss” | Read More »

    “Was blind, but now I see.” Amazing Grace has yet to find Barack Obama.

    The cover of the today’s NY Post says it all.  From the President himself, to his minions in the State Department and the Dept. of Homeland Security, the blindfolds are on, the ear plugs in, and the rest of us Americans can just shut up and go away because we’re too stupid and we “get bitter, cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people | Read More »

    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. Mitt Romney in campaign mode – (AP) First, let me say, | 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 and 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 Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% to | 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 Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) (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 | Read More »
