From its earliest days, even before the Revolution, Americans valued their newspapers and understood they played a crucial role in the issues and events of the times in which they lived. It would take a while, however, before newspapers evolved from highly partisan advocates of the early political factions to their role as watchdogs of [...]
WOW! What a turn around! I refer of course, to the repentance of the Mainstream Media. Repentance here is meant in the classic definition: turn around and go the other way. That’s what the press has done the past few days. And , yes, it IS remarkable! It is nigh on to laughable to observe [...]
Anti-pesticide activists falsely blame new pesticides for bee colony problems. Chemophobic anti-pesticide groups are at it again. This time they’re attacking a widely used and safe new insecticide, but their assertions and real agendas are nothing new. Radical environmentalism rose to ascendancy on opposition to pesticides, specifically DDT. “If the environmentalists win on DDT,” Environmental [...]
People in the Washington, DC area like to worry. Part of it’s because leftists are required to show “concern” about the darnedest things and part of it is because a large government workforce has to discover something to do or at least find a way to look busy. For example, the National Weather Service suffered [...]
How is it that, time and again, the most powerful man on the planet doesn’t seem to have a clue what is happening in his own government? Famed for never accepting blame for anything, the more I see President Obama these days, the more I am reminded of Sergeant Hans Schultz of the TV sitcom, [...]
Allow me to state, up front, I expect to catch a lot of flack for these comments. But I have a burr under my saddle and I’m going to pluck it out. America’s use of drones to kill her enemies does not sit well with me. It’s distasteful to me and most of all — [...]
Never one to be bothered by the majority if it’s one of his pet projects, Obama has vowed to continue to push for gun control in spite of the recent failure of Congress to do what he wanted them to do. Unfortunately for him, Obama is not really a dictator. He just portrays one on TV when he’s deigning to talk down to all of us, using his index finger as if it was a gun as he peppers listeners and viewers with apoplectic finger stabs to underscore his points.
Congressmen Allen West of Florida (R-Florida) and Darrell Issa (R- California) have consistently and loudly criticized the president for overstepping the political mark and bypassing Congress’s approval on a whole range of dubious policies and issues: and the recent Obama attack on the Supreme Court of Justice and the Russian ” Open Mic ” gaffe on National Security, leads to one question…
Mark Levin is a true American patriot and once again he has brought to light the ongoing Marxist takeover of America. On his show on May 9th, he interviewed Chris Crane, President of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers union and what was covered was an admission of staggering implications.
In an article athttp://www.express.co.uk we learn the following: “THOUSANDS of Britons are carrying out DIY (Do It Yourself) dentistry, pulling their own teeth with pliers and using household glue to stick down fillings. Unable to afford soaring charges, almost a fifth of people have all but given up going to their dentist, the Sunday Express has [...]
The resistance to Obamacare is writing a new chapter in U.S. history. It may well become the most unpopular law since Prohibition became an Amendment to the Constitution in 1919. By 1933, another Amendment repealed it. Obamacare passed by a straight Democratic party vote on Christmas Eve in 2009. No Republican voted for it and, [...]
The next time you see any of the following Senate Republicans: Lamar Alexander (TN) Roy Blunt (MO) John Boozman (AR) Richard Burr (NC) Saxby Chambliss (GA) Dan Coats (IN) Thad Cochran (MS) Susan Collins (ME) Bob Corker (TN) Mike Enzi (WY) Deb Fischer (NE) Lindsey Graham (SC) Chuck Grassley (IA) John Hoeven (ND) Johnny Isakson [...]
Native-born and naturalized Americans who are currently seeking work are already competing with illegal immigrants—a term that the Associated Press says it will no longer use—or standing in line behind them as they sign up for all manner of welfare benefits. The official estimate of the number of illegal aliens—oops, undocumented aliens—in the nation is [...]
What is it about an elected official that compels rich people to want to give him gifts? Do they look needy? Hungry? Depressed? Is there a secret gift registry of which I’m unaware? Could it be a mentoring program where plutocrats adopt a middle–class governor or attorney general and show them how capitalism has paid [...]
I recently had a “commenter” question my loyalty to America as a result of my hypothesizing that we, as a nation, may be headed for another civil war. It was an honest appraisal of our current situation, as I see it, and one at which I gingerly arrived with a great deal of uncertainty and [...]
By Craig Rucker Non-comprehensive, none-of-the-below, Washington-dictated energy policies guarantee decline. “We can’t have an energy strategy that traps us in the past,” President Obama proclaimed in March 2012. “We need an energy strategy for the future – an all-of-the-above strategy for the Twenty-First Century that develops every source of American-made energy.” At first blush, this [...]
