Stranded at the gates of Paradise
Of course there’s a big tug-of-war over the legacy of JFK on the 50th anniversary of his assassination. He’s a sainted figure on the Left, holding one of the highest seats in their pantheon, even though conservatives have accurately pointed out that several of his policy stances were far more in line with modern-day teabagging right-wing extremism. Both sides can agree that the center of | Read More »
Nightmare traffic stop: New Mexico man subjected to unreasonable searches
What should have been a routine traffic stop turned into a horrific experience for David Eckert. This Lordsburg was subjected to numerous medical procedures in a neighboring county even after the issued search warrant had expired: The incident began January 2, 2013 after David Eckert finished shopping at the Wal-Mart in Deming. According to a federal lawsuit, Eckert didn’t make a complete stop at a | Read More »

Sean Bielat aims to turn MA-04 from blue to red
There are several second-time Congressional candidates vying for a chance to help increase the GOP’s hold on the House. Among them Sean Bielat is attempting to make sure Joseph Kennedy III doesn’t take over MA-04, the seat being vacated by Barney Frank. Bielat’s campaign admits the fight won’t be easy. Assuming he wins Tuesday’s primary (which seems more than likely), he’ll face an inexperienced Democrat | Read More »
Obamacare: Winning the Battle but Losing the War?
Americans who respect the Constitution have been heartened by the oral arguments in the Supreme Court over the constitutionality of Obamacare. Based on the thrust of the questioning and comments by Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Kennedy, Scalia and Alito, there is good reason to hope that not only will the individual mandate be ruled unconstitutional, but that as a result the entire 2,700 page | Read More »

Seeing Clearly to Chart America’s Way Forward
2020 Vision: Seizing the New Kennedy Moment
America faces today nearly certain financial collapse. It is not a collapse that is caused by our inability to solve our problems. Rather, it is caused by our unwillingness to galvanize the American People around an ideal larger than themselves which provides the hope they need to chart America’s way forward and, as the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has said, “Win the Future”.
As Proverbs 29:18 states: Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Hindsight, they say, is “always 20/20”. However, we can’t afford to wait until the year 2020 to look back and see, with hindsight, what we should have done. America needs a leader today who can look into the future with 2020 vision and say “This is how we’re going to not just take that hill, but how we’re going to go to the other side of that hill.”
For the would-be nominee of the Republican Party, a cogently articulated plan is needed to lay the foundation of a vision which galvanizes America to rise to the challenge of its current “man on the moon” moment. Make no mistake, EVERY Republican candidate will bow to the idol of “energy independence” just as the John Stewart video satire makes clear. They will all sing the chorus of “Drill, Baby, Drill!” But, the only candidate who can win in 2012 is the one he articulates a 2020 Vision built on three key pillars. These pillars are:
1. The need to create jobs related to energy exports.

2. The threat of global terrorism funded with petro-dollars.
3. The courage to strip away self-made impediments that prevent us from becoming energy self-sufficient.
Something’s up big-time with foreign embassy bank accounts in America.
Look, just because a senior executive of JP Morgan Chase hopped on board last week as Obama’s Chief Of Staff and is a long-time friend of his from Chicago too, doesn’t mean there’s any kind of shenanigans going on with JP Morgan Chase ordering all foreign embassy bank accounts closed throughout their company. Of course, it’s a foreign media outlet with the story (AFP). A | Read More »

The Third World War
The Third World War has begun and it is not what we expected. America and the Western world are facing a danger no country has ever faced before. Our enemy is not a government nor is it a country. We are fighting enemies who are willing to kill themselves in order to kill us. This war makes our conventional Army, Navy and Air forces impotent. | Read More »
Another One Bites the Dust
Today Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), son of the late Ted Kennedy, will join thirty-one of his House colleagues on the crowded retirement bandwagon. But that’s the little picture. The big picture is this: What will the United States do without a Kennedy in Congress? Besides a two year vacancy from the time John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960 until his little brother, Teddy, | Read More »
Trivia: How Epic was Scott Brown’s Massachusetts Miracle?
Leaving aside for the moment what this means to the agenda of Obama and the Democrats, I just want to point out just how groundbreaking Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts. For the first time since 1953, a Kennedy will not be the elected holder of this seat (Benjamin A. Smith II and Paul Kirk have both held this seat during this time, but they were | Read More »
“Those damned tea parties…”
Anyway, how ironic that a grass roots Tea Party, aimed at voicing honest public policy concerns, rather than buying votes, helped end the Kennedy dynasty.

Max Baucus, Filling the Big Shoes Ted Kennedy Left Behind.
Ted Kennedy left behind some rather large shoes. At first it appeared no Senator would be able to fill them. It seemed The Lion of the Seante cound not be replaced. Then Max Baucus stepped up to the plate. His drunken, slurred speech on the Senate floor is all over the web now. This show came on the heels of scandals about him recommending his girlfriend for a judgeship, | Read More »
Showdown in Massachusetts
On January 19, 2010 the people of Massachusetts will go to the polls to elect a Senator to fill the seat held for so long by the now deceased “Liberal Lion”, Teddy Kennedy. The outcome should be interesting indeed. It is the first election with National implications since the Virginia and New Jersey Gubernatorial elections. You know, the elections that Nancy Pelosi said the Democrats | Read More »
Barack Obama – Post Partisan? Purgamentum Init, Exit Purgamentum.
The Latin word for truth is veritas. It’s something with which Mr Post Partisan has very little intercourse with. There was the truth and it knew him not. A lot of people who should have known better allowed this political relative newcomer to overshadow their usually reliable common sense, so there are plenty of people out there to share the DUH! factor. We also saw | Read More »
Clash of Realms: Bishop Tobin, Representative Kennedy, and Church-State Entanglement.
Thomas J. Tobin, bishop of the Roman Catholic diocese of Providence, Rhode Island has apparently instructed Rep. Patrick Kennedy not to present himself for Holy Communion due to the latter’s pro-abortion stance and his public statements asserting that his standing as a Catholic is unaffected by his dissent from the unwavering and well-known position of the Church on this issue. Is this an inappropriate and | Read More »
