The culpability of the news media…

If you’re a student of American History, (and you should be), you would understand that the free press in our country have been active participants in the political discourse even before and as the United States was founded. You would … Continue reading

Justice served…

There likely hasn’t been a more qualified SCOTUS nominee in quite some time, and yet most Senate Democrats are portraying Neil Gorsuch as some kind of radical monster. Thinking back to November 8th, I was hopeful of a turning point, … Continue reading

Irrational is a good word…

“Intellectually, these professors are no different than someone whose actions are defined by an irrational fear of sharks, witchcraft, or vaccines,” I believe (Students for Concealed Carry) got this right when addressing UT Dean of Architecture Fritz Steiner’s decision to … Continue reading

The elected senate majority must stand strong, for our children’s sake…

President Barack Obama is no stranger to the double-standard. His entire career has been an exercise in political smoke and mirrors. Moreover, I agree with Senator Marco Rubio’s assertion that this POTUS is not incompetent, but rather ideologically purpose driven … Continue reading

And the print media is no exception…

It’s ironic, that on the day the POTUS will likely misrepresent the issue of firearms and the Second Amendment in his final “State of the Union” address to the Congress and the American people, so then does the PROJO plaster … Continue reading

“Merry Christmas Charlie Brown!!!”

Now I’m not sure I’d call it terrorism as O’Reilly did on FOX’s “Outnumbered” the other day, at least not in the same vein as Islamic Terrorism. But I do suppose the constant threat of punitive litigation by the Progressive … Continue reading

Coach Joe Kennedy’s courage of conviction…

I believe the Bremerton High School flap over Assistant Coach Joe Kennedy praying on the field after football games is indicative of our nation’s current posture. Traditional and undeniable tenets of our culture are being shunned and vilified, all while … Continue reading

“Politicizing” the Second Amendment…

I’m glad the POTUS finally came clean about how he “politicizes” tragedies for political gain, as if those of us paying attention didn’t already know that. Nevertheless, the argument over “gun control” is once again front and center, with the … Continue reading

The subject of patriotism came up on one of the talking-head cable shows today and a reference was made to the Lexington High School “American Pride” school dance. It seems school administrators, in all their infinite “wisdom”, thought a few folks … Continue reading

‘Shadow of crisis has passed’… Really?

Kudos to the Republicans for taking the highroad after last night’s State of the Union address. I have no such political desire today. As expected, the president embellished his record and misrepresented much of our nation’s current station to a … Continue reading

Merry Christmas 2014???

Is there “racism” in our country? Yes, though that word speaks to an environment which hasn’t existed in the U.S. for some time. It’s more a broad brush/excuse, used by some of less than honorable intent, to paint an incomplete … Continue reading

President Obama can’t put aside his battle with Fox News. The problem is his presidency is so difficult to defend. The POTUS recently tweeted that “While affordable healthcare might still be a threat to freedom on Fox News, its working … Continue reading

The problems at the border are old ones to be sure. Many a president has looked the other way or used Band-Aids where tourniquets were needed, and usually only in order to garner the support of a particular demographic on election … Continue reading

First and foremost, it’s understood that what we now have at the southern border is a humanitarian crisis, ironically born out of the president’s own policies. Moreover, it’s nothing short of heart breaking to see these children being used as … Continue reading

The recent dust-up between Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Attorney General Eric Holder, is just another indicator of how bush-league the Obama bunch appears on any given day.
