Why I support Kevin McCarthy for Speaker

Now that Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% is stepping down, the House of Representatives needs a principled leader who will work hard and get results. That’s ...

Rep. Jason Chaffetz enters Speaker’s race.

Link here: I’m not going to quote, because obviously Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) 81% is contrasting himself to Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 61% in this discussion, and I don’t have a public opinion on which person should be the next Speaker of the House. I have expectations on how the next Speaker of the House should operate, and if the | Read More »

Progressives demand pre-crime department to prevent shootings

When Obama spoke about the shootings at Umpqua Community College he demanded that these shootings be stopped. He didn’t specify how. As the investigation advanced it was discovered that the shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer, had purchased several weapons, thirteen in all. All of the purchases were legal and complied with all laws. None of the weapons were ‘scary’ and warranted a ban in and of themselves. | Read More »

The Vatican scores an ‘own goal.’

Tomorrow opens Fourteenth Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in Rome. The purpose of the meeting is “the vocation and mission of the family in the Church and in the contemporary world.” Traditional, observant Catholics are waiting upon the outcome with a feeling of dread. It is well known that the German delegation, headed by Cardinal Kasper, wants the Church to become ‘more | Read More »

Fighting the never-ending battle for the past

“Those who control the present, control the past and those who control the past control the future.” –George Orwell The strength of the left doesn’t lie in its ideas. Were it to rely upon its ideology for political viability it would wither away within a generation. Rather, its sole strength, other than its unbridled used of coercive force when it is in power, is its | Read More »

Hillary Clinton privately babbles about AK-47s in the supermarkets!

My friend and colleague streiff at RedState generally berated these anti-gun comments by Hillary Clinton earlier today, but I want to really drill down on something – look, I know that too much belief in gun control apparently causes neurological degeneration, but this is absurd. Hillary Clinton slammed the Supreme Court as “wrong on the Second Amendment” and called for reinstating the assault weapons ban during | Read More »

Secretary of Education Arne “Common Core” Duncan cuts and runs.

I guess Secretary Duncan felt that he’d done enough damage to educational standards – and tossed around enough race-baiting comments* – to satisfy him, so he’ll be leaving in December. …What’s that? No, actually, my slams at Arne Duncan are likely going to pass unnoticed, in the wake of this: “President Obama has named Education Department official John King Jr. as acting secretary through the end of his term.” | Read More »

Battle of Mogadishu. October 3-4, 1993

Operation GOTHIC SERPENT. Blackhawk Down. The Battle of Mogadishu. They’re all the same. An attempt to turn around a deteriorating state of affairs, to the extent that anyone could really tell that Third World pest hole was deteriorating, in Somalia during Operation PROVIDE COMFORT, the CNN generated military operation/humanitarian relief campaign we found ourself embroiled in during the latter days of the GHW Bush administration. | Read More »

We Need Answers to These Questions First

Liberals often mock the idea that ‘only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun.’ And yet, when a bad guy with a gun shows up, they inevitably call the police – because they have guns.

Social Justice Warriors corrupt military training

On August 17, the US Army began what might very well be an inexorable slide into the status of a Third World Army. That would not be because of a lack of money or manpower but because the Army senior leadership has become so politically corrupt that it will do whatever it is told, no matter the outcome on some far flung battlefield.
