Why Would California Re-Elect Jerry Brown?
Many’s the time I asked that of myself during his first two terms. We’re still living under the aftermath of goofy policies set in place by our boy Jerry. Aside from an early alliance with the public service unions and their constant demands for more for less, our then-Governor Brown cozied up to the environmentalists and curtailed water storage and dam building, guaranteeing the almost | Read More »
Foggy Bottom Bottoms Out.
The state of the State Department can be best described as useless, in any practical sense. ‘Foggy Bottom’ pretty aptly describes the decision making process in our State Department. I really hope that Hillary keeps to her stated intention not to run for president in 2012. She’d have a pretty rough time defending her performance as Secretary of State. Garbage in… garbage out. But then, | Read More »
Outside The Law, Outside The Constitution – Obamites Defy Federal Judge.
In a graphic reminder to the nation of just why we threw the Democrat Congress out of there to start with, the delightful memories of Nancy-of-the-Smiling-Eyes refusing Republicans to be seated at key committee meetings… and who could forget the slimy machinations of Dirty Harry Reid. Oh, and then there’s UpChucky Schumer, who is a consistent stranger to anything resembling truth. Virginia Attorney General Ken | Read More »
Israel’s New Reality.
Iran is on the march all over the middle east. Its surrogates carefully chosen and in place. Iran spews venom and exports hatred, fear and murder. Iran’s reach is growing. The United States is viewing the detente between the Iranian-Venezuelan governments very closely. Prime Minister Netanyahu has warned that Iran will turn Egypt into another Gaza. He urged the west to ensure that any new | Read More »
If Patriotism Had A Report Card.
I don’t think we’d need a graduated grading system say, for instance, ‘C’ for Champion and on the opposite end, ‘T’ for Traitor. Look at all the fun we could have with all of the grades in between. ‘Everyday’ patriot I think would describe most of us… just Americans who go about our lives, proud of the greatness of our nation. Then, on the opposite | Read More »
A Watched Pot…
Though in this case it’s boiling, and Israel is watching the rapidly devolving situation right next door in Egypt. They are looking at having to re-evaluate the situation in terms of the worst-case scenario. Binyamin Netanyahu and Hosni Mubarak, May 2010. Although nominally enemy states, Israel, Egypt and the United States have cooperated at the highest levels of military command and with the intelligence services | Read More »
Middle East Crisis Looms – Obama More Ineffectual Than Ever.
I’m one of those who sees another Iranian revolution in the events now taking place in Egypt. It’s just too eerily reminiscent of the events leading up to the overthrow of the Shah, after Jimmy Carter refused to support him as an ally of the United States. The Islamist radicals throughout the the region are licking their slavering chops, hoping that the unrest in Egypt | Read More »
Flash Point – Regulatory Fascism.
Even as Barack Obama was trying to convince everyone that he had become a committed centrist and business-friendly policy was his game, the second half of his speech was still laden with promises of more government intervention and control of business. He speaks of pumping federal dollars into more ‘green’ technology, magically creating tens of thousands of jobs for happy American workers who will walk, | Read More »
Those are some of the more common reactions I’ve heard. Some of our readers have been a little more pointed in their comments about the Obama Show on Tuesday night… like a lot of Conservatives who have come to the conclusion that Obama never says anything new. He just rehashes stuff he’s already said, putting fresh lipstick on the pig time after time. Actually, I | Read More »
The only thing missing was Barney Frank as Prom Queen… well, queen anyway. I can’t tell you how uncomfortable I felt when our chosen warriors were duped into the ridiculous pose of sitting with the opposition, to illustrate some sort of new ‘tone’ at the State of the Union show. Many times I’ve talked about and warned the Republicans about letting the opposition control the | Read More »
