Cause and effect… Ah, the purposely ignorant voter and Election 2016…

Ignorance is truly bliss, isn’t it??? The ignorant voter is likely the person who thinks the “AR” in AR-15 stands for “Assault Rifle”, and/or that gun control reduces crime. The ignorant voter is likely the person who reads the indisputable … 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

So I found this draft and figured why didn’t I ever post it??? So the president says… 8/1/2014 – Revised 10/29/2015…

So the president says: the unemployment rate has dropped faster than at any time in the last thirty years. Reality: That’s because more folks have left the work force and/or simply stopped looking for work than at any time in … Continue reading

Bryan Stascavage served two tours in Iraq and is a 30-year-old Political Science student at Wesleyan University. He recently penned an opinion piece for the university newspaper in which he criticized the “Black Lives Matter” movement. In the op-ed Stascavage … Continue reading

Gentle Ben…

The Republican Debate lived up to all the hype and garnered FOX News yet another ratings bonanza. That said I only have one real take away from the seemingly very early exchange. All in both formats sounded practiced and polished … Continue reading

Simply not debatable…

For some insight on the “Planned Parenthood” story, here’s one I wrote for a great Christian Newspaper based in Little Compton, Rhode Island, “The Good News Today”. August 2015

Not feeling so politically correct today…

One would think that in the face of so horrific a revelation as Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how they sell the body parts of aborted unborn children and use partial-birth abortions to supply intact … Continue reading

Told ya so…

So healthcare is finally revealed for what it is, a grand illusion performed by our president to a sleepy and complacent audience (us). Now I know I’m gonna catch heck for this one, but Mr. Obama operates much like a … Continue reading

SCOTUS gets it wrong x2…

Chief Justice John Roberts flew in the face of his own vote on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act subsidies when he penned the dissent for the minority in the “same sex marriage” decision today. Roberts reminded us that … Continue reading

Someone referred to me as a “nut-job” recently because I watch FOX NEWS. This made me think wow, the Left apparently still has no answer for the “fair and balanced” thing, so they continue with this childish name-calling stuff. Truth … 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

After yesterday’s midterm elections, and laying aside the fact my home state of Rhode Island remains a microcosm for what’s wrong with our republic, it appears the Obama agenda has finally been derailed. Admittedly I believe this is a good … Continue reading

FOX on the brain…

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

As far as I’m concerned, it borders on criminal when a politician promotes a false narrative for political or ideological sake. It’s even worse when they do it for reasons of personal legacy or job approval. President Obama is coming … Continue reading

So after all the flip-flopping, pandering, politicking and whining, the POTUS is now warning Congress that if they don’t act on the border crisis he may have no choice but to unilaterally legalize the next generation of Democrat voters. Say … Continue reading

Executive overreach…

Indeed the number of executive orders issued by President Obama is less than those of the previous two presidents. However the number is not the issue, but rather it’s the ever broadening scope of the president’s executive actions which is … Continue reading

Not so fast…

Hallelujah!! The last jobs report indicated around 288,000 jobs created, thus lowering the unemployment number to 6.3%. Good news, right? Context – 806,000 folks gave up looking for work and left the job market, lowering the labor participation rate to … Continue reading

Term limits anyone???

I heard Congressman Steny Hoyer on FOX trying to defend “Obamacare” this morning. Same old talking points. “College kids on their parents insurance, no exclusion for pre-existing conditions, blah, blah”. Bipartisan stuff from day-one. Oh, and don’t forget we reached … Continue reading

One need only read the letters and papers of the Framers to understand that our founding documents were written to empower individuals, not government. That premise frightens Liberal Progressives right out of their noggins. The raging debate over the Second … Continue reading

An exercise in ideology, at any cost…

I seem to recall the Obamabots screaming from the rafters that nearly 50 million Americans had no health insurance. Since then however, the facts have classified the difference between those who can’t afford insurance, illegals, and those, who for whatever … Continue reading

There is something to be said for the 24 hour news cycle, in terms of exposure to stories which might otherwise be obscured or intentionally buried. In the case of two young sisters who were part of a “Pro-Life” demonstration at … Continue reading

So let me understand this. We can no longer talk about God in the classroom, and our government legislates businesses owners must set aside their religious convictions. Those same elected officials facilitate and promote an entitlement society, devoid of personal … Continue reading

I’m not even sure who the Congressman was on the FOX Network defending the Obama executive order issue, but it was pathetic nonetheless. He even compared the “tension” between the White House and Congress to the struggles and differences of … Continue reading

Remaking the “American Dream”…

The next step for liberals is to lower the bar and frame the new expectations. In full view of the CBO’s recent “Obamacare” projections, folks like Congressman Keith Ellison (D) MN, are actually out there hyping the wholly unrealistic and un-American concept … Continue reading

Losing that lovin’ feeling…

Politics trumps “We the People” once again, as we navigate the remainder of the Obama era – “error”. It seems now just in time for the next election(s), corporations and businesses will be allowed yet another reprieve, while individuals continue to be … Continue reading

“Obamacare” charade continues…

So the President’s going to try and sell this thing once again. Apparently, endless rhetoric and campaigning in place of any successful application continues unabated. Let’s take a look at what we’re seeing to date. The ACA was to include … Continue reading
