Mission Impossible: 2010
I’ve been getting reacquainted with some old friends from my childhood days on American Life Network recently.The times have changed, but the theme of saving a nation from power-hungry politicians never goes out of style. This is the start of an episode I’d like to see some evening. A tourist walks into the National Museum in Warsaw, a vibrant city in a nation that has | Read More »
On United Nations Day, the Onslaught Continues. Are You Ready to Submit?
Good morning. Today is a special day. Are you celebrating yet? That’s right. Today is United Nations Day. The power grab by the United Nations over the USA has been incessant since the Democrats won a majority in both houses in 2007.

Another Reason IOC Rejected Chicago
A story broke on September 25th about a soiree hosted by the Obamas for visiting VIPs during the UN meetings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

But I am now told by my US Senator Mel Martinez, that | Read More »

Daschle, tapped by Mr. Obama to be Secretary of Health and Human Services next year, wrote a book that he likely now wishes no one would read.

Just Who is Middle Class Anyways?
Written today in USA Today In a sense, the Obamas face a dilemma that many upper-middle-class families do in most big cities: Open, egalitarian systems offer lots of school choices — but the best ones fill up fast (and admission each fall is by lottery if applicants outnumber slots). Still, few can match the offerings of pricey private schools. So, with each of the them | Read More »
Anchorage Paper labels Obama a “Leader”
Sunday, The Anchorage Daily News (ADN) endorsed Barack Obama for President. From the AP Wires: The newspaper said Sunday the Democrat “brings far more promise to the office. In a time of grave economic crisis, he displays thoughtful analysis, enlists wise counsel and operates with a cool, steady hand.” From this account, we have some definitions from the ADN: Thoughtful Analysis: Leaving town and telling | Read More »
