The shale boom began in the U.S. as a ripple in North Dakota and Texas. Some thought its impact would be limited and regional, not global. Now that uptick on our domestic production curve has triggered a tsunami with geopolitical implications.
U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana is suddenly in more trouble than even the Politico may realize. More than a year until the Congressional mid-term elections, and a group of Washington “political handicappers” say Senator Mary Landrieu’s chances of reelection have dropped to “pure toss-up.” Why is Senator Landrieu seen as vulnerable by the non-partisan Rothenberg Political Report? While Mary Landrieu’s hasn’t exactly been a | Read More »
I’ve written previously about how embedded Google, Inc., is with the Democratic Party and the Obamasphere in particular. I was told by many that it was the stuff of tin-foil hats to believe that Google was in the tank for Democrats. They’re just working with clients after all! Why, Romney and Republicans could’ve just as easily worked with them! This isn’t partisan! Well, now, this | Read More »
Sources in Raleigh are confirming that NC House Speaker Thom Tillis will be announcing a bid for the United States Senate some time tomorrow. The potential for Tillis to run has been rumored for some time, enough so that a Super PAC, Grow NC Strong, recently filed paperwork in anticipation of his announcement. The announcement will likely wet the appetites of Democrats in DC ready | Read More »
I feel the need to add to this post as it is obvious a lot of people take up this topic with some heavily preconceived notions and biases. I am shocked to learn I think women cannot be breadwinners. That is what the left says, but it is not so. Even now I am getting beaten up for suggesting women should stay home with their | Read More »
Perhaps this old song from John Lennon played in President Obama’s head as he gave his recent speech at The National Defense University. It’s decent yet misguided naivete went through mine as I read about The President’s views on our war against Reactionary Islamic Fundamentalism.
Brett Easton Ellis begins his first novel Less Than Zero with a seeming Red Herring. Blair tells Clay (the anti-heroic protagonist) that “People are afraid to merge on freeways in Los Angeles.” This, of course, symbolizes the empty, existential ennui that Easton-Ellis posited as a monster poised to devour the children of 1980’s America. I sometimes feel that I live in an era marked by that monster’s triumphant conquest over what was once a great American Nation. I find myself forced against my will to believe the nation I once loved has succumbed to what I once described as “The Evil of The Blur.” I was born here and grew up here. I served in my nation’s armed forces of my own free will. I wasn’t exactly Rambo and never claim to be. However, I loved America without condition. Now I only remain patriotic to the memory and hope in all my delusional vanity that this is what we can again become. Now keep that in mind as you imagine what Osama Bin Laden thought about America on a typical day.
KDKA Pittsburgh broke a particularly troubling story yesterday about PA State Rep. Jesse White (D-Allegheny, Beaver and Washington Counties) which suggests his participation in unethical internet activity directed at constituents.
Many of us in the Tea Party have focused intensely on the cost of big government to the federal budget. Undoubtedly, this cost will be born directly by future taxpayers in the form of more taxes, higher interest payments on debt, and less economic growth. While we must continue hammering home this point, we must also understand that many Americans still fail to connect the | Read More »
The media, Democrats, and senile Republicans are all after Senator Ted Cruz. This is a must watch video reminding you why and to what extend the media, Democrats, and John McCain are after the junior senator from Texas.
The Obama Administration, Senate Democrats and their union handlers must be concerned about the Supreme Court’s hearing the issue of Obama’s “recess” appointments at the National Labor Relations Board.
Tonight in New York, Senator Ted Cruz will participate in an event. While he is there, the radical left has organized a protest against him over his support of the second amendment. One of the things the left will do is from 5:30pm to 7pm ET today, Wednesday, May 29th, they will tweet Senator Cruz’s twitter account @SenTedCruz and also post on his Facebook page. | Read More »
With news Wednesday morning that Michelle Bachmann won’t be running for re-election in 2014, the left has turned their sights quickly to another target: Ted Cruz. Not that they weren’t already focused on him. The left has been foaming at the mouth over Cruz since he boldly stepped on the scene and refused to play by their crooked rules. Bachmann’s exit, however, has introduced a | Read More »
In 1960, Barry Goldwater published The Conscience of a Conservative. In it, he noted Conservatism is not an economic theory, though it has economic implications. The shoe is precisely on the other foot: it is Socialism that subordinates all other considerations to man’s material well-being. It is Conservatism that puts material things in their proper place — that has a structured view of the human | Read More »
One of the favorite narratives propagated by the Republican establishment is that our candidates are “unelectable” loose cannons who will throw the election to the Democrats. [As if they are suddenly concerned about Democrat policies.] They try to invoke the name of Christine O’Donnell every time one of their members is challenged in a primary. Well, it looks like we found the Christine O’Donnell of | Read More »
I get that monetary policy is not really the sexiest or most interesting topic out there, especially in the midst of the Obama administration’s current scandalpalooza. But the signs are mounting that the Fed’s current course of action ought to start causing alarm for even the most casual consumer of news; and what’s worse, the Fed appears to have no exit strategy at all from | Read More »
