Remember Peak Oil?
Image Source : The Washington Post You could not be seriously serious unless you were concerned about Peak Oil. The officially official announcement of this phenomenon came in 1956 in a paper by M. King Hubbert entitled “Nuclear Energy and The Fossil Fuels.” He noticed that an oil field was a finite resource and that it’s productive performance could be modeled by building a Gaussian | Read More »
AFL-CIO base futilely calls for Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton.
The AFL-CIO base still thinks that their opinion matters when it comes to political endorsements. As the lady put it: “it is to laugh.”

Barack Obama: Willful Patsy
Joanne Chesimard killed a New Jersey state trooper named Werner Foerster during a traffic stop. Though she received a life sentence, Chesimard fled to Cuba where she has been taking refuge from the American legal system ever since. She joined Charlie Hill who, in 1971, killed a state trooper in New Mexico then hijacked a plane to Cuba. These two cop killers join almost seventy | Read More »
Moral Cowardice: President Obama Abandons Pastor Saeed and 3 Other Imprisoned Americans in Iran
In a stunning display of moral cowardice, President Obama struck a nuclear deal with Iran that leaves four U.S. citizens, including American Pastor Saeed Abedini, imprisoned in Iran.
They’ve been abandoned. And for what?
The “historic” deal with Iran grants it billions of dollars in sanctions relief and new trade, a pathway to a nuclear weapon, and the privilege of being one of the only nuclear powers in the Middle East. What does it give up? Nothing.
In exchange for that epic disaster, President Obama is leaving behind four Americans. It’s diplomatic malpractice.

Review: “Go Set A Watchman”
In the days leading up to the release of Go Set A Watchman, the sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird (which remains my favorite book of all time), nearly every review of the book I read filled me with a sense of dread. Early reports of the book suggested a troublesome sequence of events, hinting that it was less “discovery of an old manuscript” and | Read More »
“HealthCare.gov does not appear to be set up to detect fraud.”
So, once you’re in healthcare.gov they’ll apparently renew you even if you’re fake. Charming.

Student Performance to be Judged by Happiness of Teachers
While media attention is focused on Obama’s poorly considered and ultimately dangerous Iran “deal”, the Senate is attempting to undertake the difficult business of overhauling American education policy. And one of the Senate’s top Democrats on education matters wants to deem American kids literate and numerate if… teachers are happy! I wish this were a joke. Sadly it is not. From an amendment to the | Read More »

Don’t Say Freedom of Religion.
We don’t need freedom of religion in this country. I’ll tell you why: that bland phrase, thanks to the popularization of the expression ‘separation of church and state’, has had its meaning warped in the minds of the public. We need to get back to the words in the Bill of Rights: We must fight for free exercise of religion.
Obama rewards a killer of American soldiers
While the biggest concern to most of us in regards to the Iran nuclear talks remains Obama’s aiding Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons, one of the most important items from Iran’s standpoint was the removal of economic sanctions. Not only were these sanctions hurting Iran’s economy and people — the mullahs could give a fat rat’s patootie about that — and it was hurting members | Read More »
John Kerry: dimwit and stooge
No one has ever accused John Kerry of being smart. His schtick is speaking slow and sounding profound, a defense mechanism he developed early in life to mask a room temperature IQ and a lackwit’s infinite credulity. These talents made him the perfect point man for Obama’s Iran nuclear negotiations. Yesterday, however, he outdid himself. Kerry, who was the shameless cheerleader of Obama’s failed negotiations | Read More »
Scott Walker and Bobby Jindal Vs Solyent Green Inc
A lot of GOP candidates for the 2016 Presidential Race are criticizing Liberal Social morals. Others, such as Governor Scott Walker and Governor Bobby Jindal, are actually taking action against them. These two brave governors are actually attempting to stop Planned Parenthood from expanding their operations and taking them off of public funding. In Wisconsin, the Democrats are saddened. They are deeply saddened. As Governor | Read More »
Our Broken Country
For decades, our elected officials and political leaders have indulged the polite fancy that conservatives and liberals both have similar, good-natured wishes for America at heart, with but honest, good-faith disagreements about the best policy means to achieve those shared ends. It’s time for that happy horsecrap to end. In case you missed it, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services was caught on tape | Read More »
This Madness Must Stop
As the Washington Post Editorial Board – not known for its conservatism – noted last week, “[n]o convicted felon, let alone one with multiple narcotics convictions, deserves sanctuary in the United States.” It’s outrageous that we have tolerated sanctuary cities for this long. They provide a safe haven for dangerous criminals to repeatedly commit crimes against everyday American citizens like Kate Steinle.
That is why I offered an amendment to the 2016 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Appropriations Bill that will ensure cities like San Francisco comply with federal immigration laws and ICE requests to prevent tragedies like this from ever occurring again. My amendment, adopted by the committee by a 28-21 vote, directs DHS to withhold grant funding to cities that operate with sanctuary policies. If these cities wish to continue to subvert the law they will do so without the support of American taxpayers.

Nothing is quite as American as the Wehrmacht
I’m agnostic on the presence of Donald Trump in the GOP primaries. I’m definitely not in the same camp with some of my colleagues. I think, at this point in the campaign, Trump is serving a very useful function. But there are things that he does that simply calls into question his own judgment (the rather broad statement about Mexicans and crime, for instance) and now | Read More »
