The President’s Small World
Last week people around the world were horrified when a gruesome video emerged of ISIS terrorists burning a Jordanian pilot alive in a cage. King Abdullah of Jordan responded to these barbaric acts quickly and decisively, promising and delivering a severe response. Meanwhile back in Washington, President Obama responded in a different way. At the National Prayer Breakfast he took to the podium and self-righteously | Read More »
Atheism and support for homosexual marriage: proven indicators of a violent nature
Somebody has to ask the question. Should atheists and supporters of homosexual marriage be allowed to own a firearm? Does adhering to either of these beliefs indicate a mental deficiency, disorder, or infirmity that rises to the level that in the interest of public safety we should insist that they be disarmed? In light of today’s horrible shootings is Chapel Hill, North Carolina, we need | Read More »
The Disconnect Between President Obama and President Obama on ISIS
President Obama is now asking Congress for authority to declare war on ISIS – the Islamic State – something ISIS declared on America more than two years ago.
Putting aside the debate of whether he actually needs congressional authority to continue to take the fight to this terrorist army or whether what he is requesting being authorized to do is sufficient, there is a vast conflict and contrast emerging within President Obama’s “strategy.”

Gov. Bruce Rauner (R, Illinois) is… actually going to go to war with the unions.
If I’m not careful, Bruce Rauner may actually make me slightly less cynical about Illinois politics.

Scott Walker Not Done Collecting Skulls for his Throne
After winning two bruising electoral battles in the last 3 years, and making structural changes to Wisconsin’s budget with Act 10, you might be forgiven for thinking that Scott Walker would likely rest on his laurels as he prepares for an anticipated 2016 campaign. You would be wrong. Walker has released his proposed Wisconsin budget for this year and it is loaded with cuts to | Read More »

Feminist aborts baby boy because patriarchy
So what does a young feminist do when she mysteriously finds herself knocked up and she hates all men, even those she chooses to rut with? And, horror, the baby is a boy.
Obama claims Paris attack was random violence
Shades of Fort Hood being declared “workplace violence” to avoid having to call it what is is, yet another in the unending series of Islamic terror attacks.
First They Shut You Up, Then You Will Be Made to Care
I have to quibble, slightly, with the Washington Free Beacon’s Sonny Bunch. In a piece last week Sonny wrote that he did not think I was quite right with my phrase “you will be made to care.” Instead, he thought it should be “you will be made to shut up.” I would suggest that he stops too soon. Yes, along the way to making people | Read More »
The Rubio Factor
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% has instructed his staff to proceed as if he will be a candidate for President in 2016. This makes sense as gearing for a presidential run can be easily converted to another senatorial run in 2016. Thus, this writer does not necessarily believe this is a signal that he will run. I do, however, believe that | Read More »
Obama burns down another US alliance
It is my hope that when a new president is sworn in that we have at least one political or military alliance, other than with Iran, remaining. Right now the smart money would say that we don’t. For decades one of the staunchest allies the United States has in Asia has been Thailand. During the Vietnam War, Thai bases provided platforms to strike at targets | Read More »

Barack Obama Prepares To Govern The Way Mitt Romney Campaigned
Off To Slay More Private Sector Job Creation Mitt Romney will never be president. He richly deserves it. His infamous comment “I don’t care about the poor” consigned him to the well-deserved ash-heap of failed American Politicians. I was ecstatic when Romney announced he wasn’t running in 2016. His warped and pathetic values on this are indicative of the Chamber of | Read More »
SF Archbishop stuns diocese by revealing he’s Catholic
San Francisco Archbishop Savatore Cordileone has stunned his archdiocese by revealing he is, in fact, Catholic. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone faced hundreds of teachers from four Catholic high schools Friday for the first time since announcing his intent to include morality clauses in their handbook and labor contract, but did little to ease the anger and fear associated with the new language, teachers said. A teacher | Read More »
