John Kasich Is Not Running to be President
Dan Balz at the Washington Post reports that John Kasich has hired John Weaver and Fred Davis to be his campaign consultants, strategists, pillagers of his bank account, and all around agents of a pseudo-Presidential campaign.

Dear Accidental Sen. Bennet: Actions speak louder than words
“Accidental” Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) 6% (D-CO) has a problem on his hands – his lefty actions as a Senator don’t fit the centrist veneer he’s attempting to paint over his record.

Bill Maher’s Malignant Mockery of Persecuted Christians is Repugnant to Humanity
With the backdrop of a Fox News banner Reading “Christians Under Attack” and “War on Christians Around World,” Bill Maher sprays his vitriolic venom for Christians, running his own headline, “Witless for the Persecution.”
While I can take a good (even bad) joke and Maher’s (speaking of witless) attempts to get a cheap laugh while proselytizing his leftist, elitist brand of angry atheism don’t send the Christian community into a fit of rage, his hostile hypocritical vile rancor went far beyond his HBO reputation for insolence.

Crony Socialism: Governments All Over the World Are Messing Up a Free Trade Market
To quote the late, inordinately great Ronald Reagan, “Government is not the solution to our problem – government is the problem.” To quote the White Stripes, “I said it once before but it bears repeating”: “Trade Wars” actually aren’t about trade — they are about government trade policy. If peoples are trading freely, there isn’t a “War” – there’s commerce. The “Wars” only happen when | Read More »
