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

All of their tomorrows for our today’s…

This Memorial Day seems different. Everything appears turned upside down. We have a disgraced former Secretary of State and former presidential candidate preaching “truth and reason”, when she herself has set a new high bar in terms of probable and … Continue reading

Rhode Island embarrassed again…

Why am I not surprised, that Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and at least a half-dozen other Democrats on Capitol Hill met with Sergey Kislyak? And why am I even less surprised that the ambassador was a frequent visitor to the Obama … Continue reading

It has come to this…

My political views are no secret. And they can be a source of some contentious debate at times. That said, a co-worker recently “joked” the other day, asking if it were I who’d purchased Hitler’s phone at auction recently. Now … Continue reading

American teamwork, a thing of the past???

I remember how I felt that clear September morning when I heard the news, and how I had to console my visibly shaken wife that night as we watched the horror of 9/11 unfold on the news. But I also … Continue reading

A “Change Election”…

Say what you will about campaign 2016, but news media pundits and egg-head pollsters basically neglected, (or simply ignored), a huge swatch of angry voters who’d had enough of phony economics and an administration seemingly focused only on re-writing our … Continue reading

Big picture politics…

November 8th will surely be one for the history books. Truth be told, it’s more a macro election as opposed to one of specifics. The 2016 Presidential contest is pivotal because of its national direction implications, and not necessarily the … Continue reading

“Me thinks thou dost protest too much”…

It’s 2016, and our nation is wounded yet again by racial division. Only this time it appears to be political in its origins. To be sure, this country has seen its share of racial tension. Great men like Martin Luther … Continue reading

Never forget???

Well, it seems we may have done just that. It’s been 15 years since the worst terrorist attack in our nation’s history unfolded in the skies over Long Island, Washington DC, and Shanksville PA. Nearly 3000 people were murdered, with … Continue reading

Willful ignorance or just poor judgment…

On the one hand, Donald Trump clearly evokes an emotional response from the folks, both good and bad. Basically, he’s a really rich guy who wants to add the mantle of President of these United States to his résumé. As … Continue reading

The Hillary Factor…

I suppose one could ask the question this election cycle: “Are we better off now than we were eight years ago”? These days, the answer you’d receive would likely depend the respondent’s ideological leanings. Nevertheless, I would rephrase the question … Continue reading

As we are witnessing primary campaigns unprecedented in American history, I feel somewhat compelled to evaluate our current posture, if only for my own sanity… On the Republican side, front runner and bombastic businessman Donald Trump is clearly a media … Continue reading

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

Looking ahead…

I think it’s pretty clear that our president’s last year in office will tell us much about who the man really is, and what he really believes about these United States. I’d say it’s also pretty clear that 44 has … 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

Of pilgrims, refugees, and able-bodied military age men…

It seems re-writing history has become the hallmark of the Obama presidency. Mr. Obama’s propensity to mold and shape past events to fit his ideological view of our nation and the freedom granted it by God, would actually be entertaining … Continue reading
