There is a Fire Raging
Here is what happens when Republicans exhibit an insouciant attitude towards the administration’s appalling and dangerous open borders policies: 36,000 murderers, rapists, and kidnappers are let out of jail in 2013. Obama unilaterally suspends deportations and changes visa laws. He also openly refers to immigration enforcement as “not smart.” This, as our visa screening system has already failed to root out terror threats. Meanwhile, the | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ Starbucks and Oprah Celebrate Lesbian “Motherhood”
Having moved recently, I decided to stick it to cable and forgo television altogether so I may have missed seeing the Mother’s Day commercial where Starbucks and Oprah join hands to push the goodness of lesbian motherhood — introducing Oprah’s new Teavana Oprah Chai tea. The commercial entices the audience to celebrate all kinds of moms and slips in a lesbian couple as part of | Read More »
David Perdue Sounds Like a Man Who’d Raise Taxes
I told you people he’d go there. You didn’t believe me. But he is a CEO who lives in the private, gated community of a private gated island. They see the world differently. CEO’s make really crappy senators because they feel compelled to cut deals and transcend the rubes of party politics to prove their own statesman like qualities. And David Perdue finally went there | Read More »

Heads They Win. Tails We Lose.
This is how it is and always will be. It is still funny to point it out. Mitch McConnell and company poured dollars into beating Ben Sasse in Nebraska. K Street turned out with him. Shane Osborn got to parade before Republican Senators. They had him a nice fundraiser at the NRSC. At the end of the race the Establishment Super PACs spend over a | Read More »
Boko Haram and the Obama State Department’s Deadly Wishful Thinking
Boko Haram has long been a vile and despicable terrorist organization that has committed some of the most brutally heinous acts against humanity imaginable, but only now is the Obama State Department – with its hand forced – beginning to truly confront their atrocities.
For years Boko Haram has ruthlessly attacked Christians throughout Nigeria, indiscriminately slaughtering men, women, and children alike, and yet many on the Left have been nearly silent. Even worse, the Obama State Department did nothing.

Obama’s Weakness Encourages Chinese Aggression
One of the disadvantages of being weak is that you get pushed around. If you’re a little guy and weak it doesn’t happen all that often because there is nothing gained in the way of building a reputation in pushing a weakling around. If you are the big, fat, stupid kid, then bullies line up to mess with you. That is the position the | Read More »
UN-BROTHERLY LOVE: Watch As Philadelphia Union Bosses Cross Other Unions’ Picket Lines
Over the past few weeks, the long-simmering saga of the habitually high union costs and restrictive rules associated with Philadelphia’s Convention Center has boiled over into a war that, as a result of a new deal, has four unions doing Convention Center work while two other unions are left out on the street. The unions warring with one another has much to do with the | Read More »
Becoming a nation of cowards?
Throughout American history, our nation has prided itself on its tolerance. Tolerance of different faiths, cultures, ideas, races. Our ancestors fought the American Revolution because they would not tolerate “taxation without representation” and other transgressions against them by the mother country. A Civil War was fought because Americans could no longer tolerate man enslaving man because of skin color. Fast forward to 2014, and we | Read More »
The Chamber’s Uncanny Ultimatum
Tom Donohue, President of the Chamber of Commerce, made news yesterday when he said that if Republicans fail to pass amnesty they shouldn’t even bother fielding a presidential candidate. The media is reporting Donohue’s statement as an ultimatum to the GOP – pass amnesty or lose our support. However, there is one slight problem that has been overlooked by the media. The Chamber has been | Read More »

Idols of Our Destruction
People, regardless of demographic, are into idols. We have cults of personality, standards by which we judge all comers, issues (not principles) on which we will not compromise, and the ideal of the nation itself. Not all are idols, but all can be idols. In political seasons, we make idols of our candidates — they are flawless, pure, and indestructible. That is until they are | Read More »
