Here is my speech to the Values Voters Summit.
Here is my speech to the Values Voters Summit.
Last week, Senator Ted Cruz gave $250,000.00 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. He wants the majority. Most all of us want the majority. I certainly want the majority. I wish Senator Cruz had given the money to state parties or the RNC instead of the NRSC, which will use the Cruz subsidy to undermine Senator Cruz and his allies. But I also get the | Read More »

We should be live just after 7 pm Eastern. Don’t miss out!! And for those who miss out, you can catch the replay above | Read More »
I was up at 8 a.m. this morning (a fact I will address with my two year old later), and saw people on Twitter discussing something about a “New Constitution.” My search led me to Donna Brazile tweeting out a link from Salon entitled “We need a new constitution: Here’s how we save American democracy from charlatans, loudmouths and the 1 percent.” As an aside, while | Read More »

I’ve been doing a lot of WaPo reading lately, and I’m starting to notice a trend there and in the rest of the liberal media – there is a definite wariness on the part of the journalism elite regarding the Middle East. They posted a story with a headline you might not expect to see from them, “As U.S. takes on the Islamic State, al-Qaeda | Read More »
Floyd Corkins walked into the Family Research Council’s (“FRC”) offices with a loaded gun and fifteen Chick-Fil-A sandwiches. Corkins intended to commit mass murder and smear the faces of his victims with the sandwiches. FRC had been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center because of FRC’s opposition to the gay rights agenda. Corkins intended to murder those people because of | Read More »
The news that Eric Holder was resigning wasn’t entirely unexpected. Back at the beginning of 2014, there were reports he was planning to step down before the end of the year. What wasn’t entirely clear then was when he would step down. According to a story run by The New Yorker back in February, Holder had made some noise about leaving this year. Later, the | Read More »
Last Thursday, FBI Director James B. Comey had a bit of a hissy fit over the news that Apple and Google are outfitting their phone operating systems with encryption that will be virtually impossible to break: FBI Director James B. Comey sharply criticized Apple and Google on Thursday for developing forms of smartphone encryption so secure that law enforcement officials cannot easily gain access to | Read More »
The powerful and the wealthy nations of history have always been blamed for far more than their fair share of the world’s iniquities. From Xerxes, to Constantine to Gladstone and on forward to even George W. Bush, anyone in charge of the most powerful nation on the planet gets wrongfully blamed for all the things that go wrong. President Barack Obama now gets his turn | Read More »
Imagine a safe, one used to store important papers, extreme valuables, or even guns. When we put our things into a safe, to keep things secure against a determined thief. It’s very important they aren’t able to get in and take these things, so we ensure our safes are very difficult to open without authorization. The idea that we’d have a secret back door that could be exploited to gain unauthorized access, perhaps by the manufacturer, bypassing our control of the lock, would be unthinkable.
Yet, this is exactly what Obama’s FBI head, James Comey, is asking for when it comes to the safes protecting our online data. It’s madness.Read More »
The folks at the Federalist might take some comfort in the fact that you really haven’t arrived as a conservative/Republican/Righty online publication until a progressive Wikipedia editor attempts to delete your site’s entry.Read More »
I once owned a goat. I bought it to help control the weeds and grass on land in back of my home. In addition to being useful it also became kind of a pet for my children. It being pet goat and because I was a benevolent owner I also bought feed to supplement its weed and grass diet. One day the entire feed bag | Read More »
This is an interesting juxtaposition of events. On the one hand, the armed forces are undergoing a reduction in force, thousands of junior enlisted men and women are being denied the opportunity to re-enlist while a few thousand junior and mid-grade officers and non-commissioned officers are being involuntarily separated or retired. Many of those are currently serving in combat: Of the more than 1,100 Army captains | Read More »
