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

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

Serious sour grapes…

So the illustrious senator from Rhode Island decided to write an open letter to the President-Elect. This is my quick response. Open letter to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse: Senator, I recently read your letter to President-Elect Trump and much of 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

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

The People’s Republic of San Jose…

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo is simply the poorest excuse for the people’s representative I can think of right at the moment. Immediately following violence perpetrated by a handful of thugs outside a Donald Trump rally in San Jose yesterday, … Continue reading

Trump and the media…

What does it mean to be “presidential”? Is it presidential to intentionally (and consistently) lie to “We the People” and then “reason” it away as if it doesn’t really matter? Is it presidential to use our Constitution, (the document he/she … Continue reading

These are the times…

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

“Evidence, facts are on our side.” – President Obama…

On its face, one could say that statement was just political bluster, spewed by a failed and departing president in search of a legacy. But this is truly puzzling, and speaks to what many are now calling, President Barack Obama’s … 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

Denial is one thing, ideology is quite another. President Barack Obama is clearly of the latter category, and he makes no bones about it. So for those looking for the POTUS to run to the nearest lectern and state what … Continue reading

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
