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

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

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

We’re all Americans…

Understanding the events in Orlando this past weekend is something which will require much time and prayer to be sure. The loss of so much humanity in one horrific action can stun the mind into utter disbelief. In these moments … Continue reading

Searching for my country, 12/7/1941 – 12/7/2015…

On this day when Islamic terrorism is once again inside the boundaries of our national thought, I find myself torn between the words of a president unquestionably removed from not only the reality of the situation, but also the gravity of … 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

The first citizen soldiers in the “War on Terror”…

For me it’s as if it were yesterday. Frankly, I’m not sure that my wife and I have ever truly recovered if you will. We watched in stunned horror as the face of our nation changed forever. We rushed to … Continue reading

Pretty nice lookin’ boat aye Mr. President???

Isn’t it ironic that just as the POTUS is jetting around the country screaming about “climate change” while singlehandedly burning off more fossil fuel than a small city, the very real threat of China’s burgeoning Navy was shadowing him just … Continue reading

I tweeted that if the president’s comparison of Republicans to Iranian hardliners during a speech at American University yesterday was valid, then it could be said he and the Left were likely in collusion with ISIS. I’ve since pulled that … Continue reading

All is as it should be..?

There appears to be some confusion about our current status and/or policy for dealing with Islamic terrorism. Many on the Right believe our president is inept or simply blind to the threat. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Now … Continue reading

The art of the “debate”…

We are truly living in defining times here in the U.S. While a flamboyant presidential candidate is ridiculed by the press for telling the truth, the present occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue redefines the word debate almost hourly, leaving many … Continue reading

Presidential faux pas… Again???

Once again the POTUS has taken the low road, this time during an NPR interview with Steve Inskeep, when he suggested Governor Scott Walker “bone-up” on his foreign policy. With all due respect to the office, Mr. Obama just can’t … Continue reading

The much bigger picture…

In the broader sense, world history draws a detailed and obvious map should we of the 21st century choose to follow it. Much of the problem however comes when that history is shelved, revised, or otherwise ignored. In the more … Continue reading

Watching the President of the United States articulate his positions and strategies can be a tedious even stressful experience for us political junkies. With less than two years remaining in his presidency, Mr. Obama still has difficulty comporting himself as … Continue reading

Ideological foolishness at our expense…

To know history is to know the “Crusades” were far more than what modern Islam and even the president of the United States portray them as. In fact much of the time period should be viewed as an east/west defensive reaction to … 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

The very soul of liberty was attacked in France, leaving an entire civilized world to contemplate how far we will allow a blatantly sadistic and inhuman ideology to go. For our part, there has been much written and bloviated about … Continue reading

Forsaking the educated vote…

Admittedly, the fact that my 12 year-old has a deeper knowledge and understanding of civics and our founding principles than most college 20 something’s is troubling to be sure. It’s at least an indicator of more difficult times ahead for … Continue reading

Obama’s “WAR”…

I think the POTUS might be right, at least to the extent “ISIS” is not “Islamic” per se. I would add however, there is at least a quasi “religious” component to the Islamic States of Iraq and Syria, as I … Continue reading

Message for Barbara Boxer: Benghazi is “a scandal”…

Moreover, your defense of the Obama Administration’s handling of the 9/11/12 attack which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, his attaché, and two military heroes, is at the very least, shameful. There are many things the government of this country does which are beyond the … 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

Putting aside the obvious question of why are we now negotiating with terrorists, I think this latest White House stunt could very well cement the Obama Administration’s place in U.S. history as the most inept and corrupt ever. Moreover, if … Continue reading
